No, Sarah Palin is Not Running for Senate

Sarah Palin continues to grift, telling Sean Hannity on his radio show that she would consider running for the Senate from Alaska in 2014. But she phrased it in that familiar “you can’t rule anything out, I hope someone else that is good decides to run instead:

“I’ve considered it, because people have requested me considering it,” she told radio host Sean Hannity. “But I’m still waiting to see what the lineup will be and hoping that … there will be some new blood, new energy, not just kind of picking from the same old politicians in the state.”

She added, “I, along with anybody, would have to say that I would do whatever I could to help. And, you know, if that was part of that help, then it would have to be considered.”

I really wish the media would stop reporting on this stuff and pretending that she’s really thinking about running. Let me be very clear: She. Is. Not. Going. To. Run. For. Office. Any office. Running for office is work. Actually working in Congress is too. She has no desire to have a job when she can make a million a year giving speeches compiled through Dog Whistle Madlibs.

    Besides, she’s too busy selling ghost-written books to credulous sorts like my parents, who keep her “autobiography” on their coffee table.

    You know, usually the “you can’t rule anything out, I hope someone else that is good decides to run instead” line is used by politicians who are dead set on running but fear to look to eager in their quest for power and therefore try to fake altruism. Here, it’s the opposite.

    If she does run, her opponent will run the easiest smear campaign in the history of American politics. All the need to do is show clips from any public appearance she ever made during the 2008 election. And at the end have the voice over say, “Do you really want THIS person to represent our state?”

    “I’ve considered it, because people have requested me considering it,”

    What?

    What a maroon

    A genuine, continuing source of silliness. I suspect if she did run, Alaskans would remember that she couldn’t be bothered to serve out her term as governor. As Ed notes, why work when you can share word salad for a really good living?

    Karen Locke @ 6

    Alaskans would remember that she couldn’t be bothered to serve out her term as governor.

    Did she not bail before she got impeached for abuse of authority or something?

    I bet the minions that get involved in back-room logistical arrangements for those that run for office are breathing a sigh of relief, scuttlebutt has it she was a loose canon full of complete and utter bollix that even rethuglian voters felt embarrassed by, apart from being a rather nasty dumb vitriolic prima donna when she felt like it, to her own support team.

    @6. Karen Locke: 100% correct. Even conservatives up here can’t stand her. Palin for Senate would be a zombie campaign, dead long before it shuffled up to the front door.

    “…used by politicians who are dead set on running but fear to look to eager in their quest for power and therefore try to fake altruism.”

    She’s still working on faking intellect, a task that has proven, thus far, to be well outside her range of accomplishment.

    “Dog Whistle Madlibs.”

    Haha, excellent! Someone should actually compile such a thing.
