They said it but Palin is using it to write her own script and lyrics in just what might turn out to be the presidential campaign of the future.

I'm probably just seeing what I want to see (because I like Sarah) but I have a suspicion that Palin is running a very deliberate campaign, the first really 21st century campaign. I think she understands old media and new media. I think she is operating within her opponents' decision cycle. I think she knows who John Boyd is.

Perhaps by sheer shrewdness or sheer luck, Palin spotted an opportunity early on with a growing chorus of other self-proclaimed outsiders, the tea party, and seized on it.

Or, and this is just a crazy idea here, she believes what she says and instead of it being an opportunity seized, it was an honest expression of her beliefs.

Every time I read an article written by a liberal media-head, I come away with the conclusion that these people know virtually nothing about conservatism or the Tea Party. Lemon is no different. He thinks to himself and wonders how all this (Palin, Tea Party, etc.) could happen. No clue does he have.

I remember Don Lemon interviewed Palin in Iowa last month. He wnet in thinking she was going to trash him (i.e. lamestream). But she treated him very cordially.

He then went live on CNN and gave Palin a fawning profile, saying “she answered every one of my questions, Wolf” and was “very personable and sharp.” Then he tore into Bachmann for having her body guards trample him.

I think he may be a secret Palinista.

Two things, I think, are in play here. One, Palin gave Lemon all the time he wanted to ask impromptu questions in Iowa. Two, she did so inspite of the left’s attempt at saying she hates gays.

When respect is given, it is likely earned.

She is clearly operating inside the media and establishment GOP’s OODA loop.

Yes, it is an interesting read, but I wouldn’t read too much into it. Lemon could be a real snake-in-the-grass.

Yes it is intersting.

One argument with the article, “Palin spotted an opportunity early on with a growing chorus of other self-proclaimed outsiders, the tea party, and seized on it.” Nope. Sarah was Tea Party before the Tea Party was Tea Party.

Don't ever underestimate political savant Sarah Palin. I think she is no doubt running. The style of her campaign will be the vanguard for future candidates.

She will keep it simple and direct, with emphasis on what she can do to reclaim, restore and renew our great country.

She knows if this works, it will set the stage for other outstanding but not necessarily beltway/country club/establishment politicos.

You mean in the future relatively unknown gifted people can run? You betcha'!
