No way. That whole thing was a load of garbage and even the MSM quickly saw through it and dropped it like a rock, despite their loathing of her. Came from those same psycho Palin-hating “Trig Truther” blogger crowd, who started peddling it (oh-so-coincidentally!) after a YouTube video was posted of one of Palin’s sports broadcasts in which was mentioned Glen Rice’s recent appearance in Alaska for a local tournament.

Unethical sleazoid Joe McGinniss, trying to include every ludicrous smear available for his book of lies, trumpeted it. He calls up Rice and asks only “three” very leading and very carefully concocted questions, deliberately designed to ‘imply’ something happened between the two. Obvious and transparent set-up to push a smear.

I think the lack of a tea-party groundswell was one of the bigger factors in Palin not running. After the Giffords shooting, in which the media tried to place blame for the murders right on Palin’s doorstep, and her approval ratings plummeted, a lot of momentum was lost. Add the backstabbing of the GOP-E, the pop-culture demonization, and the sheer unhinged nature of the media towards her, it was a pretty grim picture. Looked like a no-win situation, and probably was.

She creates the ground swell, so she could have run, she waited till the last minute to not run.

The lack of Tea Party groundswell because the Internal Revenue Service and a dozen other agencies were conspiring against conservatives on the orders of the White House and DNC?
