What is Sarah up to?August 25, 2011
On September 3, Sarah Palin is supposed to make a “major announcement.” Is this the long-teased announcement of her candidacy for President? Or is it, as Roe Conn predicted today on WLS-AM radio, that she is announcing a new umbrella group for the Tea Party folks and then will throw her support to one of the other candidates…perhaps Rick Perry.
That would be better than her deciding now to be a candidate herself. I hate to see her get tied up into the whole media thing again. It would, as they say, “suck all the oxygen out of the room.” We need to have a solid debate and good targeting on the issues, not the usual media games. I like what Sarah stands for but I think she has kind of grown beyond the Presidency in a way. She can talk about anything now, and have a tremendous influence on the next President’s policies. And she can do it without all the other nonsense we went through the last time.
We’ll have to see…
