Skip to comments.Inside the Beltway: ‘Senator’ Palin emerges
Posted on 07/11/2013 8:06:36 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
And so it begins: Sarah Palin suggested she would run for the U.S. Senate seat in Alaska, and 72 hours later has fired the first volley against her potential opponent, one Sen. Mark Begich a Democrat, former Anchorage mayor and spirited Palin-basher. Hes already questioned whether the former governor was even a resident of Alaska, then dismissed her as a viable candidate. Naturally, Mrs. Palin was charmed by the challenge, immediately deeming Mr. Begich the Alaska chameleon for his political track record.
You have voted for Obamacare, for massive tax increases, for carbon taxes which could cost Alaskans 21,000 jobs, against pro-life legislation, and theres so much more. You even flip-flopped to oppose the nations balanced budget amendment. You agree with, and vote with, ultra-liberal Senators Chuck Schumer and Harry Reid approximately 90 percent of the time, Mrs. Palin said in an open letter to Mr. Begich.
In the meantime, we suppose well see much more playing of the ol Washington political game using those inside D.C. reporters each time you have to distract from yet another bad vote for Alaska in the U.S. Senate. It cheers us up and gives us good opportunity to remind Alaskans just how loyal to the Obama agenda you have been, she concluded....

This should be fun!
I want to move to Alaska so I can vote for her.
Bookmarking this thread.
I anticipate, this should get very interesting.
I’d think this would be a great move, the whole country would be watching this race.
YES!! Senators Palin & Cruz
did she really say she running for Senator? I think the presidential option was taken away if Rand Paul was running to become President
She hasn’t said she is running for the Senate.
Liberals want Sarah Palin to run for the Senate or be on Fox, anything to keep her from running for President against Hillary. that is what they fear. As president she could veto a lof of the socialist agenda. as a senator she is one vote out of a 100. As president she could rein in the EPA to let capitalism use the unlimited oil in shale we have . that is just 2 examples but many more.
Then make a formal announcement, and run. A Senator Palin would be good for Alaska, and good for the country.
But don't fence-sit, Ms. Palin. Begich is up for reelection next year. Decide, then follow through on your decision.
Sarah ....living rent free inside their heads. Acid reflux is building among the highball crowd of navel gazers. Break out the Tums in the Senate chambers.
An article in Realclearpolitics.com pretty much says that she won’t run:
I don’t think Democrats need to take this seriously, in fact, they should just ignore her. At their peril!
She hasnt said she is running for the Senate. liberals just using auto suggestion technique.

Begich is out of touch.
So who would Senator Murkowski support?
Why can’t Sarah do both?
Run for the Senate in 2014 and then, as a U.S. Senator, run for president in 2016.
Obama had been a U.S. Senator for only 180 days when he started the wheels turning for his 2008 run for president against madam Hillary.
They’d take first place as the dynamic duo ahead of Batman and Robin.
But she did say she is thinking about it and may run if a better candidate doesn’t emerge.
Yeah, but there is no basis to his theorizing in it.
I can agree! lol, check profile
I think her having quit as guv makes it harder for her to get elected as Senator and then start a Presidential run two weeks later.
I hope so! For Prez, I’m holding out for Nugent/Paul 2016!
I sort of like this idea.
As long as she wins that is. That is what she should pay a significant amount of attention to.
Right now, she’s got enough credibility to launch a real live 2016 run for President.
If she runs for Senate and wins, that increases her base with the people who look for anything to doubt her.
However if she loses, I think that is a big loss. Lots of decisions approaching.
LOL! Paul trumps Palin for pres? I don’t think so.
Pure speculation on their part. Not unreasonable. But pure guesswork.
Joe Miller is running so she needs to either decide or back Joe now. It will be hard for him to run with her chanting that she MIGHT in the background.
People are putting words into Sarah's mouth. She did NOT suggest that she would run for the US Senate in that interview.
I wish I had the transcript to hand, but I've read it a couple of times, and nowhere did she even slightly hint that she was thinking of it.
I read here every day, and haven't seen that reported.
You can listen to the interview here:
I agree, though she’s just brought it up and started targeting Bedich this week.
She has said she’s considering it.
Dang! I wanted to say that!
I pity the person who goes up against Sarah Palin.He will end up bruised, beaten and belittled! And that’s just what “she” will do to him! What we will do to him is unspeakable!
While that’s true we need more counters to the Rubio/McCain rinos in the Senate.Plus she could turn yet another seat from socialist to Republican.I think its a good move.
What a biased POS article. I wouldn’t pay too much attention to that pap.
Her actual words were that she “considered it.” Past tense.
It did not sound to me like she was currently entertaining the thought.
Not to mention the EPA's stranglehold on building new refineries and expanding existing ones.
And not only stopping all the roadblocks to deep water drilling (in the gulf and other ocean locations, such as between FL and Cuba, where the Chinese are planning to drill half way between Cuba and the USA,) but also re energizing all the oil pumping stations just off shore, such as off of Santa Barbara, CA, etc.
I've seen those, they are beautiful.
One day I was having breakfast in an ocean side restaurant in SB (outside patio, 10 ft. from the sand) and gazing lovingly at the pumps in the distance.
I asked a local guy what they were (which I knew) and he told me.
l mentioned to him how beautiful they were, and it was too bad they aren't pumping oil.
His jaw dropped, LOL!
Is there any indication that she could do 6 years of commuter parenting and marriage? This may not be the right time of life for this.
Obviously, she’s running. Begich is toast, he turned into a DC retread.
Is Sarah absent on George Zimmerman, or have I just missed it? I have googled Palin on Zimmerman
Is it a political calculation to stay out of it?
I am disappointed that she has apparently not fired off some comments defending George
Thank You, and I love Sarah! I have never ever said I was disappointed in Sarah, just said I was disappointed
She still I believe has kept out of this recently, perhaps it`s a political decision
I read all/most of her major statements, missed that one, but I dont hear her making any other noise, I guess there is a down side politically in so doing?
I just think she wants to take the path Levin tried to take and she did call out Obama for doing getting involved. So if she gets involved in it now it would be a little hypocritical. There are too many other issues to be worrying about than what is happening with Zimmerman.
Obama and Holder are trying to distract people with the Zimmerman case. Palin isn’t falling for that.
