    The Washington Post's Post Politics Blog ^ | January 28, 2015 | Sean Sullivan
    How would Sarah Palin do if she decides to run for president? According to her former top-of-the-ticket running mate, quite well. "She's very interesting. And I'm sure she'd do great," Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) told The Washington Post Wednesday in a brief interview. After the 2008 presidential election, McCain has consistently praised Palin, despite her clash with his campaign team. Palin has also defended McCain. The former Alaska governor campaigned for the senator in his 2010 reelection bid....

    Breitbart's Big Government ^ | October 28, 2014 | Tony Lee
    Deal with it. Former Alaska Governor and Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin said she hopes to again run for elected office. In a Tuesday interview on Fox Business with Stuart Varney, Palin gleefully acknowledged that getting back in the political arena will "bug the crap" out of liberals and the mainstream press. [...] Nobody has ever exposed the mainstream media for who they truly are, including their double standards and ugly biases, than Palin. In addition, she has also allowed opportunistic and jealous Republicans--especially insecure male losers who may have unresolved issues from their past that they can't seem to let...
  • Palin on the wane: She's even ticking off Christians (The Left worried about Christianity?)

    It's generally a waste of space to reference Sarah Palin, which is why she so rarely appears here. She long ago devolved into a cartoon, and her clout (such as it was) continues to wane. She's like the incoherently choleric aunt you see once a year at Thanksgiving. She's like the real-life version of Kristin Wiig's brain-addled Aunt Linda. But... (You knew there'd be a But.) But every great once in a while, John McCain's Hail Mary gift to America says something so scintillating that we'd be remiss to ignore it. Her remark earlier this week about the religious virtues...

    Sarah Palin renewed her call for a “Convention of the States” today. She has joined conservatives like George Will and Mark Levin in supporting a constitutional, Article V “Convention of the States” in order to propose specific amendments designed to rein in and limit the federal government running wild under President Obama. More and more people, legislators and states continue to join the growing movement calling for a “Convention of the States”.

    What if McCain/Palin won, then McCain died -- and a terror attack followed. Apocalyptic fiction from a nightmare It is obvious in retrospect that only an external attack like that on 7/22 could have saved the Palin presidency. Without it, would any of what followed have happened? I doubt it. The Democrats would have recaptured both the White House and Senate that fall. The culture wars would have simmered on, but the evangelical movement’s momentum on the path toward political power would have been lost. I would be installed in my corner office downtown, practicing law. I would probably have...

    Governor Sarah Palin will headline a dinner recalling the life and painful euthanasia death of Terri Schiavo, who was subjected to two weeks of starvation and dehydration by a husband who no longer wanted to care of her. Though the events surrounding her death were very difficult for Terri and her family, the foundation that bears her name is turning a negative into a positive. The national controversy that erupted over the court-ordered decision that ended Terri Schiavo’s life by removing her feeding tube in 2005 has been channeled into a positive effort of awareness, education and advocacy through the...

    Sarah Palin heaped praise Saturday on Deb Fischer, the Republican running against Bob Kerrey for one of Nebraska's seats in the U.S. Senate. Palin had just eaten lunch with Fischer and was taking a look at items in the La Vista Cabela's, talking with a couple customers and signing a man‘s cap. She called Fischer a “hard-working, very grounded, down-to-earth, patriotic American woman.” Palin, the Republican vice presidential candidate four years ago, said that as a Nebraskan, Fischer knows agriculture and could “help common-sense, constitutional Americans.” “We need more of that when it comes to regulation and policy,” Palin said...

    We’re at a very strange juncture in the 2012 presidential contest. Rick Perry continues to struggle, as Mitt Romney savagely exploits his offensive-to-conservatives position on immigration and the Texan deals with new, potentially damaging revelations of a racially insensitive name for a hunting camp rented by his family. But Romney’s not benefitting much in the polls, and he remains a persona non grata to many conservatives. And the candidate with the current buzz, Herman Cain, is many miles away from being taken seriously by GOP elites as a potential nominee. Politics, like nature, abhors a vacuum.

    New poll suggests Obama will not be reelected. According to a new poll, Obama may be a one-termer. A McClatchey-Marist poll finds that Obama's position is eroding steadily and that even Sarah Palin may be gaining ground. The poll finds that most voters believe that he'll lose the election. A solid group is saying they will vote against him, and most Republican contenders are gaining ground on him. Sarah Palin was the poll's biggest surprise. While the former Alaska Governor isn't officially running for President, she has been touring the country and promoting herself nonetheless. The latest poll has her...

With a deadline looming, and with who-knows-what economic calamities waiting just around the bend, the two sides had -- amazingly -- only hardened their positions. John McCain was not amused. He had a few things he wanted to get off his chest -- and much of his fire was aimed at his fellow Republicans. At certain kinds of fellow Republicans.

    Like most documentaries, the new film about Sarah Palin that premiered in June in Minneapolis is ostensibly about the past. Mostly focusing on Palin's political career in Alaska, "The Undefeated" portrays a crusader clashing with the governing GOP establishment and big-oil interests -- fights that earned her the highest approval rating of any governor in the country at the time. Of course we all know "The Undefeated" is really about the future. Of Palin's political prospects in 2012, sure. But more important, said the documentary's director, Steven Bannon, the film allows Palin to redefine herself. "The meme was so set...

Far from the glitz and glamour of Hollywood, nowhere close to the social elites in Manhattan, and an eternity away from the beltway insiders of DC, 340 people sat and watched an honest presentation of the left’s relentless (and often vulgar) attacks on Palin, with a subsequent portrayal of the fact that Palin has withstood those attacks – has weathered their storm – and in spite of them, remains undefeated in her spirit and her convictions. For those who are...

Palin’s answer? She noted it wasn’t that unthinkable for Trump to be curious about Obama’s birth certificate, as it was an issue that has transfixed a sizable segment of the body politic. She expressed hope that perhaps Trump’s piles of money would be the key ingredient missing from prior investigations...

    If Sarah Palin is going to run for the Republican presidential nomination in 2012, she is sure going about it her own way. A conservative TV idol and household name, the former Alaska governor sees little need to behave like a traditional presidential candidate. Palin has been nowhere to be seen recently in the early voting states of Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina, while potential rivals scour in search of staff and supporters. Instead, Palin has relied on her appearances on Fox News and often caustic comments on her Facebook page to rally support for conservative causes and perhaps...

    Former Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin and her husband Todd concluded their brief first visit to Israel on Monday by meeting Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and his wife Sara at his official residence in Jerusalem. Ahead of the meeting, Netanyahu’s office checked with Palin to see whether they could expand it to a full reception for her with other politicians and aides, but she politely declined. [....] In private conversations, she vowed to return soon – for a full week – and said she would meet with more politicians and the media then. J Street officials, who are in...

    Popular conservative politician Sarah Palin understands the importance of the Temple Mount to the Jewish people, according to MK Danny Danon (Likud), who accompanied her on a visit to the Kotel Sunday. Danon told Arutz Sheva's Hebrew-language service: "When we toured near the Kotel and in the tunnels near the Holy of Holies, she told me clear things without hesitating. She understands the importance of the place for the Jewish People and even asked me 'Why do you keep apologizing to the Muslims all the time?'" "I explained to her the mistakes made by [then-Defense Minister] Moshe Dayan in 1967...

    Thank you! Such an honor! I appreciate getting to see some of your magnificent city - this is 1st time here & I sincerely hope it won't be my last! During my brief time here I've enjoyed India's famous "Gift for Hospitality." And next time, I want to visit the Taj Mahal with my husband, Todd. Considering how patiently he's endured during my political career & been so supportive, it would be nice to reinforce our teamwork/commitment before that monument to eternal love. Todd is here with us tonight. When I had the honour of meeting your Prime Minister a...

    The jokes are already flying as Sarah Palin prepares to embark on a trip to India later this month, and more are surely to come. Will she rock a sari? Perhaps guest star in a Bollywood movie? Or bathe in the Ganges for a photo op? Palin has been invited to give the keynote address, "My Vision of America," at the two-day India Today conclave in New Delhi, an event hosted annually by the magazine since 2002. The March 18-19 event is sponsored by global business heavyweight Aditya Birla Group, a billion-dollar metals company, along with a bevy of industry...

    Former Alaska governor Sarah Palin came out strongly in favor of continued U.S. foreign aid to Israel in a Sunday interview with Judge Jeanine Pirro on Foxnews. "You know I'm sure that there's some waste and fraud in our foreign aid we need to find efficiencies and not give to any regime that would seek to harm Americans in any sense of the word 'harm,'" Palin said, "I don't support that kind of foreign aid at all. but when it comes to Israel - NO... I stand strong with Israel and unapologetically I say that America should keep this strong...

    The Politico ^ | March 6, 2011 | Kasie Hunt
    Sarah Palin’s trip to India this month might seem out of the blue, but it’s one piece of a much larger trend: The world’s largest democracy goes gaga for American politics. Most Americans couldn’t even name the Indian prime minister, but the press in India covers minute details of the American political scene. Its top news magazine devoted an entire issue to President Barack Obama’s November state visit to India. One major newspaper headlined a story, “Tea Party time in the US,” about the 2010 midterm elections. The main New Delhi TV station ran a piece on Palin’s use of...

    Who will take on Barack Obama for the 2012 Presidential election? Betfair punters expect Mitt Romney to get the Republican nomination while some have even speculated that Donald Trump could have a crack at the White House. The Betfair Contrarian explains why everybody's favourite Alaskan is his choice... The Contrarian has proven in the past that he's even more adept at making money out of politics than an expense-fiddling MP, his latest triumph coming when opposing David Miliband at 1.43 in last year's Labour leadership battle. He's spotted another big opportunity - backing Sarah Palin to be the Republican candidate...

    <p>Two potential candidates for the Republican presidential nomination have been described as “frontrunners”: former governors Mitt Romney and Sarah Palin. According to pollster Scott Rasmussen, they’re the candidates with the most supporters among likely Republican-primary voters: Romney has 24 percent, Palin 19 percent. Intrade, the prediction market, has them as the most likely nominees: Romney is given a 23 percent chance of winning, Palin 15 percent. Each of them has a claim to being “next in line”: Romney because he was arguably John McCain’s strongest rival for the nomination in 2008, Palin because she was his running mate.</p>

    The New York Sun ^ | February 27, 2011 | Praynay Gupte, Contributing Editor
    Sarah Palin’s choice of an international venue to deliver an address on “My Vision of America” is canny. She will speak in March before India’s business, political, diplomatic, academic and media elite at the annual India Today Conclave. The gathering arguably possesses the biggest private-sector megaphone in the world’s largest democracy. And while the delegates may not be a microcosm of the country’s 1.2 billion mostly poor people, they certainly make decisions that matter. Mrs. Palin’s choice is also shrewd because her visit to India will come barely three months after a celebrated one by President Obama. Her appearance is...
