So she gave a speech in Iowa today and she didn’t pull the trigger either way.
I wish Gov. Palin would just run for president and get serious
Or, give it up, and say so, and go on to whatever her next project is going to be.
Either way would be fine.
I would like her to be part of the debate in the GOP in the next few months.
But I am getting sick of this ongoing dance of a thousand veils from her.
Maybe there is a perverse kind of sense to it, from a personal rather than political standpoint.
Once she declares, she is ordinary, she is just another candidate. She has to debate and get in the cage with the rest of them. She would have to be prepared for that, and despite media claims, none of the other serious contenders are stupid, and beating them in debates will be hard. And then when she runs, and if she loses, as she probably will, then she’s done. The Palin phenomenon is over. I can see why she might want to put off that day. But if it is all about her ego, she should not be president anyway.
She cannot go on milking her celebrity status.
She has to use it or lose it.
(And, of course, this all may be part of some insanely brilliant strategy she is employing that I do not understand. If so, I will eat this blog post when, in the fullness of time, all has been made clear.)
