Sarah Palin Is a Tease!
Daily Beast ^ | 08/16/./11 | Meghan McCain

Posted on 08/16/2011 8:25:30 PM PDT by TomServo

Sarah Palin Is a Tease!

Even after Michele Bachmann’s win in the Iowa straw poll last weekend, Sarah Palin won’t go away. Is she really serious about running for president? As Meghan McCain sees it, not a chance.

It’s the middle of August and we’re in the dog days of a political summer, when the Republican contenders for president are scrambling to figure out how to unseat Obama in 2012. The exaggerated importance placed on last weekend’s Ames straw poll isn’t a surprise. Michele Bachmann probably won’t be our next president, but the intense need for some sort of political news in our nonstop 24-hour cycle is to be expected. What should not be expected, however, is that six months away from the New Hampshire primary in January, the media is still spending a considerable amount of time obsessing over Sarah Palin, a woman who may or may not even be interested in a run for the White House.

Don’t be sexist.

She’s a rugged individualist.

Stop whining.

The only candidate who I trust will govern based upon constiutional conservative principles, and lead a true counter revolution through a special relationship with the people. Perry is a professional politician who is plain wrong an critical issues—see immigration.

Palin will play her teasing game as long as she possibly can get away with it, maybe to the point of actually declaring and running a phony campaign, without any paid staff (as Newt Gingrich is doing right now) in order to squeeze every last possible dollar out of her celebrity status.

After praising Palin, Coulter goes on to say that she does not think that Palin will run for president. Hannity counters by saying that Coulter is "unnecessarily narrowing the field" and that Palin has publicly said she is still considering a run. It is at this point that Coulter reveals, "I think she's saying that because she also said Newt Gingrich told her you can get higher speaking fees if you pretend you are running for President."

Palin is currently playing this very lucrative game with FOX News and there is still plenty of money to be made with the Teasing Game:

Due to the "Equal Time" provision of Section 315 of the Communication Act, TV networks cancel the contracts of employees that are serious Presidential candidates. Yet, Palin and FOX News continue a very cozy relationship that is very lucrative for both of them:

1.) Sarah Palin spends a week here and a week there pretending to, maybe, run for President. Such a fake "teaser" campaign does not trigger Section 315.

2.) FOX News hypes each of her fake "teaser" campaigns.

3.) At the end of each fake campaign, Palin's loyal supporters and the curious Palin non-supporters then drive the FOX ratings as Palin appears in an "exclusive FOX interview of Sarah Palin" where one FOX employee (Palin) is being paid to be interviewed by another FOX employee that is paid to toss Palin cream puff questions.

4.) Palin cashes her paychecks and FOX News gets their ratings bonanza.

5.) Rinse and repeat, again and again and again for as long as the game keeps generating money for FOX and for Palin.

The longer Sarah Palin keeps playing the Teasing Game, the more money the Sarah Palin™ Brand brings in. Therefore, Sarah Palin will play the Teasing Game as long as she can possibly get away with it.

If that leaves her loyal followers foolishly "Waiting for Godot", ...... Well, too bad, so sad, ....... That is what needs to happen to keep the money rolling in.

Whatever Palin does, I predict that the end result will be a maximization of the Sarah Palin™ Brand income.

If you want to accurately predict what Palin will do, FOLLOW THE MONEY. Whatever maximizes the money, that is what Palin will do.

Your theory is as interesting and reasoned as the ones on what date she will announce. I am a little more open minded on these speculations than some here. I suspect you will need one of these shortly.

without any paid staff

Several of the MSM covering Palin at the Iowa State fair commented she had more and new staff with her there. I didn't see anything specific regarding numbers and names, but apparently she's not downsizing she's upsizing. And she was seen with the top Iowa Organizing4Palin folks in public there, reportedly had lunch with them in private and they have since continued their unpaid, and previously completely independent in so far as as we've known, efforts on her behalf. So Palin's private messaging must have been encouraging.

I predict that Palin will decide and announce her decision.

Reading tea leaves beyond that is a bit presumptuous.

If she should run and somehow get the nomination Obama and democrats will win in all 57 states. It will be a total blowout and the republican party will no longer exist. Her negatives are way to strong to overcome. The only ones that will vote for her are on the far right and there just isn’t enough of them to do any good. Sorry, she is a good strong conservative, gives a good speech but not presidential material.

Not a single FReepMail from the mods.

However, I do get frequent FReepMails from FR readers that see my writings and thank me for the data I post.

They find it a welcome change from the "Gush! Gush! Gush!" and "PDS! PDS! PDS!" what you Palinistas have been posting for months.

You’ve pasted that into about 4 different threads. Most of your recent history consists of Palin hate. Sorry that you feel so threatened by her.

You are so dead wrong. If Sarah declines a run at this point, her stock will fall by 75%. If she chooses a “fake run”, and doesn’t give it her all, same result. You obviously didn’t read Going Rogue, b/c you would know that Gov. Palin is a fierce competitor, and cannot do anything half way or half-assed. Bob

Hmmm. See post 6, that’s been copied and pasted literally hundreds, yes hundreds of times. Selective outrage on your part. If there are rules against cut and paste, shouldn’t they apply to everyone and not just those you disagree with?

The numbers who have long tuned her out for any run whatsoever, are mounting, and now when she comes on TV, it’s a similar reaction to Obama coming on TV. You know exactly what either are going to say, so you don’t even listen, leaving both with only their shrinking base to care.

Thanks for explaining that reception she got walking though the fair over the weekend.

Best worry about Perry and his cronies. A few of his big donors have made out pretty well during his tenure.

“Catty much?” ......

Bet you say that to all the guys. Sexist, right? Do you wear lipstick? We learn by experience that we give as good as we get around here. The Palin supporters have been exceptionally obnoxious for months, with their over the top intolerance of anyone who questioned her intentions, her qualifications, or her failure to engage. So, we have moved on. Simple.

Megan McCain’s opinion is meaningless and getting in a lather over someone who isn’t running in our lifetime is a ridiculously petty of her.

Good post. The more time passes, the more I come to loathe all things Palin. I don’t see her as a tease, but more and more akin to Lonesome Rhodes. The nation simply cannot afford a phoney like her becoming the Republican nominee.
