A mysterious California lawyer named Peter Singleton is crisscrossing Iowa to ensure a win for Sarah Palin

DES MOINES, Iowa—Prominent Republicans here pretty much splinter into two camps on the question of whether Sarah Palin will jump into the 2012 presidential race.

One side points to a mysterious California lawyer named Peter Singleton as proof that Sarah Palin will definitely run. The other side points to Mr. Singleton as proof she won’t.

“When it comes to Palin in Iowa, it’s pretty much Peter Singleton,” said Iowa Tea Party Director Ryan Rhodes. “The guy is everywhere.”

Crisscrossing the state in a series of rented cars, the 56-year-old Mr. Singleton has spent the better part of five months visiting obscure county GOP chairmen, befriending tea-party activists, buttonholing lawmakers in the lobby of the state Capitol, and amassing a database of potential Palin supporters. His base camp is the Days Inn in West Des Moines, where he washes his shirts in the sink.

Deepening the mystery: Mr. Singleton swears he has never met Ms. Palin and has no contact with her team. “I’m just a dedicated activist working on my own,” he said.

Ms. Palin’s aides concur, insisting that she hasn’t met with Mr. Singleton and that he is in no way coordinating with her political-action committee.

But not many Republicans here buy the lone-wolf theory.

    I don’t think that Sarah will run. She’ll tease people along so they’ll keep donating to her PAC. After all, there are still those in the -48 that still believe in her and who she hasn’t completely fleeced yet. As the time draws nearer for her to either announce her candidacy or not announce it, she’ll bring the victim card back to the forefront. But she’ll wait until the last possible moment…as long as there are -48ers out there with spare change, she’ll be chasing it.

    “I’m just a dedicated activist working on my own,” Sure, and I have a bridge to nowhere to sell you. Totally believable, right?? Right?? Maybe he’s a walking moron detector trying to find all those potential Palin voters.

      Bingo. How lazy she is. If she wins the office of the president it will be by cheating. Just look at what we have to look forward to a lazy president who will get Toad to do her job and then pass everything off to everyoneelse while she sits on her thrown as queen Esther. OMG if the bitch couldn’t come in person to represent herself why in the hell would I bother to vote for her. But then again they are people who really are in lust with her.

    His name is “Simpleton” There, corrected it for you, no need to thank me. These Koch brothers, or Murdoch probably are so rich, they do not even realise this idiot is on their payroll.

    I wonder if he wears a PalinMan outfit to the state Capital building. Seriously, I hope another candidate welcomes him into their organization when it becomes clear sarah is not running.

    She won’t run, because it will require her to spend her own money and possibly do some work. We all know that spending her own money and working are two of her least favorite activities.

    If you could run for POTUS by twittering and eating crunchwrap supremes while watching Lifetime TV, she’d definitely run.

      Seriously, Jimmie?

      I`m not an American and I don’t live in America so let me provide you with an objective view on how the rest of the world views Sarah Palin. We view her as a complete moron. The reason, because we actually get news about how retarded she is and the scandals that she has been involved in.

      I don’t care if the next president of the U.S.A. is a democrat or a republican but if it’s Sarah Palin God help us all…that woman couldn’t run my lawn mower
