Yes, Palin is Running
I've known this since Election Night 2008, when she got miffed that she couldn't speak as part of McCain's concession. Her ego can not only see Russia, it's bigger than Russia. Take it to the bank, people: Sister Dumb-as-Two-Mules Sarah is in.

Personally, I look forward to this: If she wins the GOP nomination, Obama will achieve a 50-state sweep in November, PLUS each and every Democrat will be guaranteed 8,621 belly-laughs.

1. One big reason she won't - she needs $$$$
Sure, she has a bunch of cash, but no one has ever run a national campaign on their own funds alone.

And she burned too many bridges to extort cash from anyone who could help

2. she makes more by not running than by running.
Edited on Fri May-27-11 11:16 AM by Javaman
she's a grifter. she loves money and will do anything to get it.

She's going to pull a trump (card) LOL. She will run without running.

when they demand her tax returns she will bow out.

And bow out that much more wealthy. Remember she has her own little vanity movie coming out about her. Can't run for office when you are preening for premieres and the hollywood talk show circuit.

She will now infect the world with her own brand of scam.

4. She's running all the way to the bank. She wants attention and
$$$, not a job and responsibility.

5. She won't run.
You've "known this since election night 2008." That's a long time to be wrong about something.

She's a grifter, always looking for a dishonest buck. She has no interest in the actual responsibilities of the presidency or the pressures of a campaign.

6. I agree wiht all
Sara is not about to give up making millions.... She wants the attention, she wants to push the repugblicans campaigning to the xtreme right and then sit back and watch her handy work. The same goes for newt they are both grifters. She is running alright, running all the way to the bank.

7. She Won't Lose All 50 States
She'll win Utah and some of the racist southern States. She'll get slaughtered in a way that makes Walter Mondale snicker, and she'll have a hard time getting as many as 100 electoral votes, but she won't lose all 50 States.

8. I think she will wait until the last minute to anounce a run, concurrent with the premiere of her

little "film". She'll ride the crest of that wave through the first few primaries and then she'll drop out of the race. From there she'll try to get picked up as a VP candidate on one of the losing tickets like Gingrich. She will try to stay in the primary race as long as possible without positioning herself to actually win. Then during the general election she'll be doing rallies and fundraisers, etc to support whoever the real nominee is.

Post election, as her 15 minutes are almost up she will invariably do something to piss us liberals off, like another animal snuff film or another target map, or anything like that. As people tire of her and the antics she has to do to get money and fame become more and more desperate, I imagine whatever skeletons she's been keeping in her closet will come out eventually she will be publicly shamed in such a way that she will stop seeking the limelight.

9. No, she's not, she's milking it.
Lawrence O'Donnell is right -- the second she's out, her price goes down. She is feeding speculation but if she wanted to run she could just say she was running; why is Fox keeping her on when others were suspended for "seeming to be interested?" She has told them she will not win. She will end up endorsing "a RINO" because she will make a lot of easy money doing that.

10. She can't take the heat and will stay out of the kitchen. She's the carry-out candidate.
