On the cover of the upcoming edition of "Runner's World"...
Sarah's not going down quietly; the reports of her demise are more wishful thinking from nervous liberals (and establishment Republicans) than reality. Roger Stone:
Watching the Washington chattering class pan the Palin moves shows the moronic level of political analysis in the media today......Palin needs some rehabilitation to her political image caused by the relentless attacks of the elitist media, the knife-work of the relatively talentless Republican Party pros like Steve Schmidt and her own self-inflicted wounds from the post election period that were born out of inexperience at this level of political combat....
As Palin said, God bless people who run for political office, but – and she didn’t say this part – she’s too big to be a lame-duck governor stuck dealing with fishing licenses in Anchorage right now. She’ll be much bigger now and can play on the national stage without constantly setting off state ethics investigations by loons, parasites and liberals.
Will she lead a new party - a "Tea" party?
Palin at the head of a new national party will suck all the oxygen out of the room. This single act will guarantee she will have as much air time as our Spender-in-Chief. Furthermore it will no doubt scare a lot of Republicans (since the leadership is all chickenshit today anyway) into actually taking on the Democrats.
And, cranking it up all the way to 11, Sarah Palin declaring the formation of the national TEA Party would be the single most disruptive, and dare I say most revolutionary act in the history of modern American politics. It will totally change the whole ballgame because everyone in a single stroke will be playing by HER rules.
Sarah is playing it close to the vest for now, and I will not question her strategy a la the idiots Roger Stone refers to above. I do, however, agree with this:
This is not the action of one who wants to go Ross Perot. It is the action of one who’s gone Galt on her own party and has decided to play the game her way.
The way Nixon played it in 1965, and Reagan played it in 1977.
And soon, they're gonna be talking about "Sarah's Rules", and the new way the game is played....
