Sarah Palin has announced that she will not seek the office of President of the United States in 2012. As a rabid, far-right-wing kook fringe lunatic, this news couldn’t make me happier:
“I have decided that I will not be seeking the 2012 GOP nomination for President of the United States. As always, my family comes first and obviously Todd and I put great consideration into family life before making this decision. When we serve, we devote ourselves to God, family and country. My decision maintains this order.”
Love her or hate her, Palin is a figure to be reckoned with; Republicans and Democrats alike understand that her following makes her a person to be recognized and taken into account…she’s got 10’s of millions of really pee oh’ed Americans at her back, and she ain’t goin’ away anytime soon.
For me, personally, this is the happiest day of my punditry life; as a private citizen this woman can do a helluva lot more damage to that good ol’ boy’s network that made a mess of this country than she could EVER do sitting atop the steaming pile.
I love this woman more than ever tonight, and I can’t wait to see her stick a shiv in the short ribs of our political heroes on BOTH sides of the aisle… she’s gonna make them remember whose fault it is that this country has gone to hell in a handbasket…and I’m warmin’ up the popcorn: 2012 just got a whole lot more fun.
