MSM Just Canít Quit Sarah Palin

Rent free in their empty heads.

There would be no home field advantage in Alaska for Sarah Palin if the former governor made a run for the White House in 2016, according to a new poll released Friday.

Hillary Clinton, the front runner for the Democrats in 2016, would beat Palin 49-40 in a hypothetical match-up, according to a survey from Democratic firm Public Policy Polling. Palin is the only potential GOP candidate Clinton topped in poll.

Despite it being her home state, only 18 percent of Alaskans think Palin should make a bid for the White House in 2016, with 77 percent— including 72 percent of Republicans — saying she should stay out of the election.

Clarifying, a candidate who has said nothing about running for president in 2016 and who the MSM are constantly saying is an irrelevant faded star is so insignificant that Politico just had to expend resources to poll Alaskans about how they feel.

Regarding something she’s not doing.

This, um, story was posted well above the latest Bob Filner news on the Politico home page, by the way.

So Sarah not running is within 9 pts of the top runner in the field. Not bad for a noncandidate.

I wonder which Alaskans they polled? Friends of Tony Knowles or Frank Murkowski?

I'm willing to bet Sarah's had enough exposure on TV to have picked up a few more followers and any fear she may have of the lamestream dredgeing up old family matters (they have nothing else ... and a weiner has a lock on the weirdness faction .. )

I think she should announce and run.

Precisely. There's no evidence Palin plans to run for president, but they just can't leave her alone.

I see she is still living rent-free in their heads. This is all part of the Hillary ‘16 groundwork: pin Benghazi on the CIA, marginalize Sarah ...

"only 18 percent of Alaskans think Palin should make a bid for the White House in 2016, with 77 percent— including 72 percent of Republicans — saying she should stay out of the election."

But did they ask WHY she should stay out of the election? Was it because they think she's dumb? Probably not. Was it because they disagree with her policies? Probably not. Was it because they think she'd again be mocked and trashed by the liberal media and wouldn't stand a chance? Probably.

If she starts campaigning, then they will remember why they loved her so much that she was the most popular governor in America.

The Lame Steam Media is a foe of free market Capitalism. Sarah Palin is a champion of free market Capitalism.

The battle lines are set.

If I were Palin, I’d run anyway, regardless of what the stupid polls say. JUST for the fun of driving the media talking heads abso-frickin-lutely NUTS!

Well, that’s like what my sister told me, in regards to why she didn’t want to see Palin run during the last go-round... because my sister cringed at the prospect of going through and again seeing the vicious, unhinged, media gang-rape of Palin and her family. But were Palin to get into any potential race, my sister’s level of support would be at the most unparalleled heights towards any single candidate in her lifetime. Ditto for me.

Sarah’s career is another thing McCain screwed up...she was an extremely promising politician that needed a couple more seasons with the farm team. Expecting her to go cold from state politics to a presidential campaign in days was madness. Doubly so consider the utterly hostile MSM.

This is ridiculous.

Gov. Palin hasn’t announced that she is running for an Alaskan Senate seat.

She would be foolish to do so, anyway. Her place is in the White House.

I think that the attacks are on due to fear of her. I also think that a State that would elect Murky-Cow-Ski, via a write-in campaign, might not necessarily vote Sarah over Hildebeast.
