" I believe so." That was Sarah Palin's response when asked by Barbara Walters if she could beat Obama in the 2012 presidential election.
Could she be right? Well, it is remotely conceivable that America's median IQ could slip into the low double digits, just not very likely. By all accounts, chances are she'll be taken out by her own team, the Republicans. Her performance in the mid-terms was less than inspirational. Palin backed a number of Tea Party candidates who went down in flames. In her home state of Alaska, the right winger she backed lost to a "write in" candidate. Ouch, that burns!
Palin's potential Republican presidential rivals are honing their skinning knives. If she files her nomination papers she'll be like a bull moose on opening day of hunting season.
In a way I'd like to see her seek her party's presidential nomination. It would be the Republicans admitting they still have room for the village idiot and I suspect her very presence would be toxic to whichever candidate does get the Republican nod.
Run, Sarah, run! If only ... Will never happen. Even the GOP is not that stupid.
Then again, what was she going to say? "Nope, he'd beat me like a redheaded stepchild. I'd be the smoking ruin of the Republican hopes of reclaiming the White House before 2016."
Given her aspirations, the question probably answers itself. If she admitted defeat at this point her supporters would probably drag her in front of one of those darned death panels.
