Palin Snarks at Obama’s State of Union Address

January 28, 2011 · Leave a Comment

In Palin’s Facebook response to Obama’s State of the Union Address, it seems clear that she is positioning herself for a run at the Presidency.  Given her increasing negatives, this must be a welcome scenario for the Democratic party – the possibility of a well-funded divisive Republican primary.  To date officially non-candidate candidate Romney has raised over $9 million and Palin $5.5 million.

Unfortunately for the gravitas-challenged Palin, she chose to act in her typical churlish and IQ-challenged manner, saying that his “Winning The Future” speech could be best characterized by the acronym formed by the first letters.  Sarah Palin you are ridiculous.  Keep it up!  Seriously, keep it up!  We love it.

Read about it in the LA Times.

Palin Positioning for Possible 2012 Presidential Run

January 21, 2011 · Leave a Comment

Despite polls showing Palin’s unpopularity at stratospheric levels of 56%, her advisors are continuing to make sure that she is positioned to be able to compete for the Republican presidential primary should she choose to run. 

While most political strategists consider an unpopularity rating over 50% as career-ending, Palin is planning to give tow speeches in the important swing state of Nevada, while her team continues to make overtures to key Iowa activists in that early caucus state.  She is expected to talk about guns to a friendly crowd, and in keeping with her recent speech on the same night as Obama’s speech at the Arizona memorial for the Giffords shooting tragedy, one of her speeches will be next Tuesday – the same night at President Obama’s State of the Union speech.  Clearly she is trying to get news coverage on the same night as the President, setting herself up as an equal alternative to the President.

Other Republicans who are clearly also positioning themselves for a the Republican primary include Mormon Multi-Millionaire Mitt (Romney), Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty, and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich.

Let the games begin!
