Where are the Palin rumors coming from?
Sarah Palin Declares Her Independence
Woo hoo! Double rules apply! This could easily be my all-time favorite thread.
I do sincerely hope to see her sworn in as POTUS one day. Sarah Palin is IDDG!
No surprise. the brilliant Ann Coulter is absolutely right on.
It’s basically an “Arcum’s razor” thing.
I think thats Occam’s razor
This is so right on. The Republican Party is a shambles, and needs an energizing force to bring it back together and give it some power.
This is precisely what Rush has been saying for several months now.
There is NO national leadership at the GOP.
Sarah brings it.
And Sarah will “bring it”.
No surprise that Ann gets it!
Makes more sense than most of the opinions that have offered.
Just watched Ann Coulter defending Sarah Palin on FOX and had a wonderful thought, President Palin putting Ann on the Supreme Court. :)
Ann is spot on, again.
but we need media.....
we need the very few conservative and America loving rich people to buy media.....local, and national...
start somewhere, but do it....
I believe the foundation of that razor is when all other things are equal.....I do not think that exists in this case.
I’ll call it Coulter’s Razor = exposing politics for what it truly is.
BTW, there was some harridan on Fox this morning - the older woman who comments on the media ( I can't recall her name) - who was going after Gov. Palin hammer and tongs, just raving about how it was all her fault: she was poorly educated, poorly trained for political office, and Vanity Fair was right. She was so deranged she was almost frothing at the mouth. The anchor (that bland-looking guy) was really taken aback, as was I.
Be still my heart. YES... what a wonderful fantasy.
Ann Coulter has nailed it! The media must be dense along with some so-called conservative pundits not to understand.
I love Fred, but, seriously, he wimped out on us the last cycle.
The media will come through Sarah...we may not like it, but the press didn’t like Reagan, hence my new addage:
The amiable dunce is back, in a skirt and high heels.
I wish Sarah could be President. But because I like and respect her so much, I really don’t want her and her family to go through the cruelty the MSM would bring on if she ran for that office.
She could still do much good from the “outside” for this country and even the world just by speaking out for conservative and righteous causes. She is a great influence.
That had to have been Liz Tratta, former NBC reporter. Usually she’s pretty good.
Unfortunately, Odumba with ACORN's help will be trying
to change the 22nd Amendment. Perhaps Palin will be
able to help elect some strong conservatives in 2010.
At least enough to thwart his grab ala Chavez & Zelaya.
Ann's only flaw in this article is repeating herself twice at the end of this sentence.
The Great One, Mark Levin had the same take on it. His July 3rd show is Worth listening to.
She certainly was the epitome of harridan ... name was Troller, Trotts, something like that. Just popped out of the woodwork, don’t recall ever having seen her, or reading anything from her before.
Sorry, mispelled her name...it’s Trotta.
Every now and again, Ann Coulter reminds me that she’s more than just a pretty provocateur...
The only explanation that makes sense. Other conservative commentators have pointed out that the Alaskan system seems to lay governors open to endless gratuitous ethics complaints. Anyone with a computer, an envelope and a stamp can file one, and it still costs the accused official thousands to deal with it. The usual suspects had figured this out, and were firing away systematically in an organized fashion. So of course, she was running up unsustainable legal bills.
However, the Soros gang is dancing the Mamooshka (re: “The Addams Family” movie) way to early. This also frees her up go national, as well as start studying for the big time (not to mention make some real $$). As Ann said, she leaves behind an excellent replacement.
The libs may be celebrating now, but they will live to regret this big time.
What is great about these “sea change” moments is that you know which operatives you can trust, which insiders have conservatives’ backs, which commentators are part of the establishment and which one’s are real conservatives.
It doesn’t suprise me that Coulter and Levin are at the foregront...
Liz Trotta has been around for a long time, got her start back when with NBC.
Usually she takes a pretty conservative, media-cracking line.
I think Ann is right, and I think the nattering nabobs are too stupid to realize that Palin is bigger than any of them. She was pretty clear what her intentions were. You just had to listen and take her at her word.
They don’t know whats about to hit them.
That’s right: Liz Tratta. And I was surprised because I’ve seen her before and she usually is pretty good. She early on commented on the media’s love affair with the Obummer. But today she was just unhinged. The anchor (wish I could recall his name) was so taken aback - when Tratta was complaining about how Gov. Palin doesn’t have enough experience for national office, he tried to hint that maybe the Obummer didn’t have all that much, either, and Tratta just rolled right over him. Must have not taken her meds.
...at the forefront.
Oh. Thought her name was Liz Trotter.
Thank you Ann! I was getting tired repeating the obvious. Maybe know they will listen.
Oh, now I remember her, she’s the one that made the crack about Osama bin Laden and Obama. I’m not going to post the entire phrase, not up for a middle-of-the-night visit, lol.
Quite the sea change in her attitude, or perhaps she’s just another NE media corridor victim like Noonan or Parker.
“...had a wonderful thought, President Palin putting Ann on the Supreme Court.”
OR AT THE VERY LEAST—THE PRESS SECRETARY!
LET’S PUT THAT WITTY TONGUE AND HER GOOD LOOKS TO OUR BEST ADVANTAGE!
No excuse for that. Trotta's old enough to remember that nobody held it against Slick, when he was
rapist governor of Arkinsaw, that he had Zero experience in foreign policy.
Same thing was true of Jack Kennedy. Lyndon Johnson was no paragon of world affairs, either. Jimmuh? Don't make me laugh.
Dan Quayle, on the other hand, could run rings around all those guys on foreign and defense issues, issues like nuclear weapons policy and disarmament. Did that count? Noooo!
Funny thing, I can’t remember his name either, and he and she have a bit every Sunday AM.
He is bland, isn’t he?
Yeah, me too.
If you can’t fight off jive attacks with the power of the Governorship, how less so without that power. Time will tell.
If she thinks she is being attacked now, she needs to know it is much worse when you live on Pennslyvania Ave, and you just go and resign from that when it gets nasty.
Hell, she did a wonderful job. She gave McCain political CPR. But she will have to take the lipstick off now.... if she wants to start chewing up obambi in 2012.
Annie, I love ya.
You can always be counted on to puncture the worn out, over-patched balloon of hot air from the left.
Dang, it just came to me.
Its a weird Washington insider perspective to be perplexed by what shes doing. Contrary to Mark Sanfords e-mails to his mistress, no one was really impressed with him; 99.99999999999999999% of Americans didnt know who he was. Who is more influential: Rush Limbaugh, Matt Drudge and Bill OReilly, or Tim Pawlenty, Bobby Jindal and Mark Sanford (before the fall)? As Palin said, God bless people who run for political office, but and she didnt say this part shes too big to be a lame-duck governor stuck dealing with fishing licenses in Anchorage right now.
People who don't get that entire paragraph are just not paying attention.
Yep, Ann does easily grasp it. No blinders on this gal.
That’s “Occam” my misinformed correspondent.
And gag me with a spoon. I don’t care what Miss Coulter has to say, Palin is a frickin blight on the Conservative movement. Has nobody noticed how everybody in the Democrat party is drooling over the prospect of Palin running in ‘12? Gimme a break. I say go back to Alaska, Sarah, and take care of business. She is a pathological liar and about the most calculating personalitiy to take the national stage in memory. This latest move is obviously a grab for money, and I mean hers. I will be very surprised if she attempts to raise funds for anybody except her family.
Wouldn't Press Secretary suit her better? I think the DBM would be too scared to even show up at WH press conferences! LOL
I would have agreed with you, until she made this announcement.
I believe that this move on her part, would be the death nell to any national campaign! She has just ended her career!
She couldn’t even finish ONE term! Why in the world would anyone vote for her as President, when she has so little experience, and she quit the governor’s job, which was hardly even started! She has let down the people of Alaska; she has let me down. She has broken her oath of office....she is a quitter. She is putting her own ambition before the duties she pledged to complete.
Oh how I wish she would reconsider. Change her mind! Finish what she started. Stick with it. This action goes against everything she has ever said she stood for.
She is finished in politics.
Whoever advised her to make this move is not her friend, but an enemy, looking to get her OUT of the 2012 race.
She can make turns with Rush. Or joint pressers. LOL!
