A Message for the Palin 2012 Exploratory Committee

By now the blogosphere is abuzz with the news that Sarah Palin said she's interested in running for President in 2012.

She's surrounded, I think it's clear, by sycophants who are all convinced that she's the presumptive GOP nominee in 2012. And I think it will be easier for her to hear it first from someone like myself who, I think we can all agree, is not really a real American.

Ms. Palin:

You are currently involved in a campaign that has been, by any reasonable measure, a giant failure. A big reason for that failure is that the fundamentals of the election don't favor Republicans, but another important factor has been the seemingly endless string of monumental, boneheaded errors on the part of the guy at the top of the ticket, John McCain.

Yet among all those missteps, one stands out above all the others for its utterly inexplicable idiocy. It is, in a way, the gaffe from which all the other gafffes proceed.

Sarah Palin, YOU were that gaffe.

That is all.

While it is certainly possible that a large segment of the Republican base would push for a Palin nomination, there's no way possible that she could compete at the top of a ticket. She represents all that is wrong with the republican party, personified by the recent Ted Stevens indictments. Cronyism, antiquated ideas, and anti-intellectualism. Folksy sayings and 'aw shucks-ing' may have worked 8 years ago for Bush, but I'm pretty sure most of the country is wise to that game.

If Palin runs for President in 2012, at least she has name recognition going for her... but, at this point, that may not work in her favor
