Sarah Palin says she might just run for the Senate.

Can she really take off from her celebrity tour for a whole THREE years?

she'll get bored and quit three years into her term..

Just as in 2011-2012, Sarah will be "coy" about running. She'll wink to her fans. She'll attempt to raise excitement and demand for her presence.

Does she know

It's a six year term? That she can't vote by Twitter? It pays less than grifting?? You actually need "votes", not "Likes" on Facebook?? If you want to see Russia from the "House"--that's the other side of the Capitol?

And to think we were having a serious conversation on another thread about what's wrong with the Republican Party (Hint: It's not JUST Birthers)...here pops up Moose-Poop-For-Brains.

As god as my witness, I couldn't have asked for a better pageant-walking example.

The usual progressive media reaction

How boring your lives would be if you didn't have a republican to dump on.

When there's this much vitriolic reaction to someone's name being mentioned it makes one wonder if that in itself indicates there's fear that she has a good chance of winning a senate race. There must be a realization that there are a lot of people out there who still believe in the basic values she represents.

Let the bad-mouthing begin

newscred.. it's not vitriol at all..just the opposite..

anything that keeps jon stewart and all the late night comedians in business is worth hoping for..

st. sarah is good for at least one true belly laugh every day..

looking forward to it..

Besides the obvious humor;

newscred? You want "vitriolic reaction" to Palin? Listen to the McCain Campaign people. You think we Dems are in "fear" of her?? Are you kidding? That's so naive and clueless. Listen to the former Bushies and intelligent conservative commentators. They're the ones afraid of her....and with good reason.

Hell--we want her to run for Senate, quit, and run for President. As long as Republicans like you "believe in the basic values she represents"--you know, ignorance, sheer stupidity,greed, hubris, blind ambition and incredible narcissism--GO. FOR. IT.

Sarah has half a mind

...to run for half the six-year Senate term.

Actually, I could've stopped typing after the title.

this is all about fear and hate. why else would the left be attacking a child with special needs? why would the left joke and wish rape and murder on sarah palin and her kids?

Orthicon hit the nail on the head...

A Sarah Palin candidacy of any kind is disastrous for ALL Republican candidates in 2014.

On top of the GOP's general weakness with the American people, Palin will serve as a daily reminder of what's wrong with the Republican Party.

You gotta believe that con and newscred's reaction mirrors a lot of other conservatives -- masking faux outrage and parroting right wing talking points -- to distract from the fact that Republicans would be embarrassed to have Sarah Palin running for ANY office!

An interesting view from WaPo's Chris Cillizza:

“Giving up her current lucrative career may be hard given a less than certain outcome in the race,” said Terry Nelson, a veteran Republican operative who has done work in Alaska. “And a losing campaign won’t help her.”

He goes on to say:

"Basically what Palin is saying is this: “Yes, I am aware that there is a Senate race in Alaska. Yes, people have asked me about it. No, I haven’t totally and completely ruled it out.”
That’s pretty thin gruel. Particularly when you consider Palin’s past time in elected office. Remember that Palin resigned the governorship of Alaska just halfway through her term — a sign that her commitment to serving as a politician in elected office just isn’t all that strong."

Actually, what Palin said was

"I’ve considered it because people have requested me considering it, but I’m still waiting to see what the lineup will be and hoping that, there again, there will be some new blood, new energy, not just kind of picking from the same old politicians in the state..."

Yikes. Besides her obvious problem with things like 'verbs', she still doesn't consider herself another "same old politician". Hell, "Twilight" had more "new blood" than this...

At least this new 'word salad' isn't as bad as " “Oil and coal? Of course, it’s a fungible commodity and they don’t flag, you know, the molecules, where it’s going and where it’s not…So, I believe that what Congress is going to do, also, is not to allow the export bans to such a degree that it’s Americans that get stuck to holding the bag without the energy source that is produced here, pumped here.”

(And, never letting the opportunity go by, my personal favorite: "[Paul Revere] did warn the British. And in a shout-out, gotcha-type of question that was asked of me, I answered candidly. And I know my American history."

"He who warned, uh, the British that they weren't gonna be takin' away our arms, uh, by ringing those bells, and um, makin' sure as he's riding his horse through town to send those warning shots and bells that we were going to be sure and we were going to be free, and we were going to be armed."

Recapping, reaffirming, again, Please run for something as a proud Republican. It only helps.

st. sarah

Wow! It took "Sir Dougie of the drunk tank" all of thirty minutes to drag out his, ever-so-clever, nickname whenever Palin's name is mentioned. You really can't stuff that where it belongs, eh?
Good to see you never engage in childish name calling.

Oooh, snap. Great comeback!

About as clever as your playground name calling.

I think the thin-skinned sensitivity...

to the name St. Sarah shows just how clearly the extreme right has elevated this do-nothing failure to political sainthood.

The radical leftists here

calling Palin names demonstrate an abject absence of any substantive grievance. Typical smear politics from the left.

"Typical smear politics"

Right. Because wingnuts have always treated the current President of the United States with the utmost respect and dignity.

My "substantive grievance" with Moosealini is that she's a walking time bomb of ignorance with the IQ of a gnat who was waaaay to close to Washington for comfort. Even the very idea of her being on the same continent of the US Senate is scary.

I can't call her, well, stupid is a good word, based on everything she has said and done, but crackpots like cruise can call POTUS a Socialist—who shares characteristics of Hitler , Stalin, and Mao. No double standard there.

Yes, cruzo...

because YOU have never called anyone here -- or any Democrat -- by any degrading name.

You give me, the regulars, and all our "casual readers" a good laugh every time you post!

That's why I'm hoping Sarah runs. She'll be a laugh a minute!
