Ending the Year with Sarah Palin – As Bad as the Republican Field Is, It Could Have Been Worse

One Final Act of Self Promotion Before 2011 is Forgotten
In a near futile attempt to find something of interest to report on the political scene withthe largely meaningless Iowa caucuses now gone, the Washington Post has asked several Republicans who declined to run for President to make a statement on the race.

Second up, probably because she elbowed her way to near the front, but could quite make it to first place  is former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin.  What does Ms. Palin have to say to the candidates who actually chose to run rather than quit their elected jobs (them that had them) and go around making money? Why it’s “read my book”.  (Available at fine book stores and rummage shops everywhere.)

Given the concerns I have for some of the Republican field’s focus thus far, I must implore the candidates to do something that sounds self-promoting, but whatever. Candidates, please turn to Chapter Three of“Going Rogue” and read what it takes for our country to step toward energy independence. Note the lesson I share in the same chapter about taking on the “elite,” the crony capitalists and the permanent political establishment to get a job done.

When hearing Ms. Palin say something like this, one is reminded of Shakespeare, “Get thee to a nunnery”.  Really and don’t come out until you know how to play nicely with the grownups.

In typical Washington Post shlocky journalism the article entitled "If I were campaigning for President..." ends with something from Herman Cain.  Uh, WP, Mr. Cain was campaigining for President until he made an ass out of himself.  Being a newspaper we thought you might have known that.
