Sarah Palin to Kick Off A Bus Tour: Could This Be A Sign?

Sarah Palin is not saying she is running. She is not saying that she is not running either. What she is saying is that she is going to tour some of the historical sites and cities of this nation to reconnect with the “patriots” that founded this country. Palin’s One Nation Tour is set to visit the cities that she calls “key to the formation, survival and growth of the United States.” She will be heading to Gettysburg, Antietam, both important battlegrounds in the Civil War, as well as Philadelphia and New Hampshire. That tour will begin this Memorial Day weekend.

In addition to the news about the bus tour, speculation about Palin’s future intentions is growing because of other moves she has made in the recent months. Palin acknowledged that a full length motion picture about her bid to become the Governor of Alaska will be released some time during the summer, most likely in key campaigning states including Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada and South Carolina.

The Palin’s have apparently bought a home in Arizona, which insiders suggest would be much more reasonable as a campaign base than Wasila, Alaska.

In addition to the tour, the movie and the new home purchase, Palin has also shocked political insiders by announcing that she has rehired Jason Recher and Doug McMartin, her former advisers that worked with her during the 2008 election season.

Palin, long believed to be naive, at best in matters of foreign policy, recently went out a trip to the Middle East where she was getting first hand exposure to some of the very things she would face as the leader of the United States, if she were ever to run and actually pull off a win. She is considered the long shot at this point in a field that is not only dwindling dramatically, but is also considerably more lackluster than more recent years. No one has really been standing out as dynamic in the Republican party and that might open the door for Palin who can cite public popularity if nothing else.

That popularity has dramatically faded in recent years, with 71% of those polled saying that they did not want Palin to run for President in 2012. Of those, numbers, 56% were Republican, and 65% of the Independents said the same thing. Among Democrats, the number against Palin running for office is 88%.

Palin might still have some supporters, but she certainly has more than her share of detractors as well. Key among them, former assistant and Palin insider, Frank Bailey whose tell all book, “Blind Allegiance to Sarah Palin: A Memoir of our Tumultuous Years” was set to blast the former Governor on key issues that could be her undoing for a Presidential bid. Early reviews of the book are favorable for Bailey but decidedly less so for Sarah Palin. While not the first book slamming Palin, this one is written by an insider and is already steeped in controversy.

What she is saying is that she is a complete friggin idiot unworthy of the 13 seconds it took to write this sentence. No one cares...well no one should care anyway...

Irony overload: After McCain claimed that Obama was too young, inexperienced, and superficially famous to be president, he picked a running mate that was even younger, less experienced and more superficially famous. Palin is now three years older, but apparently no wiser. Between her wildlife reality show (featuring her father reloading her rifle), her historical sites bus tour, and the movie, she is still going with what she sees as her strength: tissue-thin photo-op vapidity. Maybe she hired her former campaign managers because no one else who else would go near her. P.S. I heard that the title of the movie will be "No Country For Half-Term Governors!"
