Much as I would like to see Sarah Palin emerge as a strong candidate for the Republican Presidential nomination in 2012, I don't think it is going to happen. After four years of President Barak Obama, the voters of this great nation are not going to be up for another ingénue.
I know that I, for one, have sent her a letter suggesting how she can improve her understanding of national and international issues—a course of study if you will. No direct response, but time will tell if she paid attention.
In the mean time, I am wondering about the insight of Boston Herald columnist Margery Eagan, in this article on former Governor Palin. Ms Eagan votes this way on Governor Palin: "Totally wacked, for my money."
But, the line that really caught my attention was this one: "Moderates may admit Palin helped sink John McCain’s ship."
What? Maybe moderates do think that way, but the rest of us think that Governor Palin was the one keeping that campaign afloat. I think that Ms Eagan misremembers what happened in 2008.
In her moderate concern, Ms Eagan is now talking about a “Palin-Bachmann for 2012” ticket. I doubt it, but it does take Ms Eagan's paranoia and puts it in one punchbowl.
