Well, Not Exactly...
I am secretly hoping that Sarah Palin becomes the Republican Presidential nominee in 2012. And as dense and gullible as Republican voters are (not all...but many) they just might make it happen. But then i'm reminded of how boneheaded Americans are as a whole, and how they may be crazy enough to actually put her in the White House in the General election, especially with the potential backlash of having a Black incumbent. The American voter is capable of doing a lot of crazy things, many of which have little to do with reality or common sense. They elected George W. Bush twice for goodness sake (really once...but you get the point). So i'm not so sure that it's actually safe for this Palin fantasy to come true.... because it might go too far. The idea of Palin getting anywhere near the White House is horrifying.
But if this CBS poll is correct.... we probably won't have to worry about this kind of worst case scenario.
I'm a little perplexed as to why the media is giving her so much play. I'm amused by their incessant interest in knowing whether she will run for President (legitimizing her as if she is anywhere close to being qualified). It's as if the media folks have been in a bubble over the past 2 years. It's as if they forgot what happened during the campaign. Hello!!! It was pretty much established that she wasn't qualified to be VP... so why in the Hell would she be qualified to run for President? Did something change since last years campaign that I don't know about?
