Jackson and Palin. Great fundraisers, but are they electable? Not so much.

Palin’s Future in the GOP

This article is a good one.  It talks about Palin’s role in the GOP, now that she’s proved herself to be completely unfit for the nation’s highest office.  Not only is it chock full of little giggly morsels like:

Some of my Republican friends hope she can forge a different public image. They believe that if she were to write a book on foreign policy or get linked to a think tank, all would be forgotten. The sickness runs deep, reality is not where they live.

That’s not how media politics or public image works. It’s like hoping Bill Clinton will become a spokesman for marital fidelity or George W. Bush for eloquence.

it also makes some really good comparisons between Jackson and Palin. Great fundraisers, but are they electable? Not so much.

And although we can’t know what the future will bring, I have a feeling that Palin may well be a thorn in our side for a while, but at least she won’t be calling the shots from the oval office. Lack of experience, ability, and intellect, coupled with fringy-type religious and political views means that chances are slim to none for a 1600 Pennsylvania address, according to Politico.
