Regardless of what anyone may think of the Palins, I am making my call now. Sarah Palin is our next president. You can laugh, you can call me a kook, you can say whatever you want, but mark my words, and mark them well, Sarah Palin will be taking the presidential oath in January 2013 (assuming the world didn't end the previous month).

All the pieces are being put into place. She is playing the popularity game very, very well. She must have a brilliant publicist, because I don't believe for a moment that the brilliance is all hers. And everyone loves her. So much so that her talentless and utterly boring daughter was somehow able to garner the votes to move her to the finals of Dancing With the Stars (doesn't the name of that show imply that you have to be a star or at least a former star to be a contestant?). Sarah Palin also has managed to introduce a new word to the English language (refudiate) much quicker than it takes most. Her ghost-written book sold a gazillion copies and I swear you can buy it a Circle K (I'm joking about that last bit). Her new reality show is enjoying very strong ratings.

The USA has come full circle and seriously become the reality show nation. We make our decisions in life based on popular votes. You think I'm exaggerating? There is a news story running now about someone who is going to make the decision whether or not to abort their child based on Internet votes. Now, this turned out to be a hoax, but the writing on the wall is pretty obvious. Sarah Palin, her publicist, or a combination of the two, have read the writing. They know that the American people, if they had their way, would have the race for presidency be a reality show with panel judges and we text our votes in until the everyone is eliminated but our next president. You may think my Dancing With the Stars point is silly, but I'm telling you, the fact that Bristol Palin, who can't dance, has no personality, and has no identity other than being the daughter of Sarah Palin, was able to advance to the finals of a show that has surpassed even American Idol in popularity, well, do I even need to explain it further?

Anyway, I'm making my call. Anyone care to wager?

 I think she has sort of pioneered a place for herself as a kind of right wing Oprah. While I am certainly sympathetic to many of her positions and think she did a great job in Alaska, I will never forget the Katie Couric interviews! I think alot of other people won't either.

President would also involve her taking a SIGNIFICANT pay cut.

Well, yes, she would, but we all know the long-term earning potential that being the president carries with it. Besides, I have a feeling she wants to be president, and wants it bad.

Everyone likes her?  Since when?  I never hear a good word about her except on TV.  No one I know or have talked to when out and about, Republican, Democrat, male, female, religious, atheist, or whatever, supports Sarah Palin.

(Granted, that's only around 100+ people but if she's so popular at least one of those would like her, right?)

Well, akiratubo, I hope you realize I was being sarcastic. I don't really think everyone loves her. What I mean is that she has some serious numbers of supporters, and those people vote. The Dancing With the Stars premise was mainly about her potential to mobilize people. Certainly, there are plenty who hate her. In fact, the public is very polarized on Sarah Palin. I'm one of the few who are indifferent to her. The people who hate her will never learn that their hatred is what fuels her popularity.

Au contraire!  I like her a great deal and have said so in this forum.  If she runs, I'm going to get a skintight TShirt with her picture on it, write a song about how I have a crush on her, and do a sexy dance to it and become an internet sensation!!!!!

(and maybe get a Cabinet post out of the deal!) TeddyR

Seriously, I see so many lefties who just absolutely foam at the mouth when you mention her name, I can't HELP but like her!

How?  HOW can you like her?  She is a complete failure as a leader and uses her family as props.  She's nothing but a hollow, soulless, self-promoter blatantly in it for the money.  She's disgusting, the embodiment of everything wrong with American politics, and I wish she'd go away.

Sure, I'll give you a karma point if Sarah Palin is our next president, you give me one if anyone else is.

About this time 4 years ago I was pretty sure Hillary Clinton was going to be the next president.  Things will change a lot in the next 2 years.  Who knows what other politician's daughter may get her own reality show?  Maybe Kim Kardashian's mom will decide to run for the Dems.  Who can say?

It could happen, though I wouldn't bet on it.  She's kind of the 2010 version of Dan Quayle. She will always find a way to sound stupid.  The Democrats are probably hoping she does get the Republican nomination.  It's easy to run against that kind of moronic image.  Here in Nevada we had a similar candidate named Sharron Angle.  The only reason I even bothered voting in the past election was to vote against her.

Realistically though, if Palin does take the oval office, it most likely won't be any better or worse than any of the other presidents we have had in my lifetime.

To me she's appealing until she opens her mouth. Women and minorities by and large can't stand her. Her demographic are white males who want to bone her. That's cool. I'm not judging. JFK had sex appeal which helped him become president. On one hand it's sad the criteria that make one president, on the other hand I think the entire political system is a complete joke, so this would just be another punchline to me.

And now for the next punchline:

Sarah Palin is trying to become a contestant on the next Dancing With the Stars.

If she does, then it's lights out. There may as well not even be any other contestants.

Allow me to correct myself on my last post. I was very tired last night when the news story ran. It's even better. Sarah Palin is not trying to be a contestant. She is trying to get Christine O'Donnell on as a contestant on the next season.

And the comedy just keeps comin'.
