‘I believe that I can win a national election,’ Sarah Palin declared!

Sarah Palin hasn’t jumped into the race for the White House (yet), but she believes the prize is there for the taking. In a conversation with Peter J. Boyer, Palin warns Boehner not to raise the debt ceiling, proclaims that Obama is beatable—and says the 2012 field is far from settled.

Palin Plots Her Next Move

“We don’t advertise where we’re going,” says Palin, who returned home to Wasilla, Alaska, from a series of crowd-packed appearances around the country.The worst that ALASKA has to offer is....... Sarah Palin!

‘I believe that I can win a national election,’ Sarah Palin declared one recent evening, sitting in the private dining room of a hotel in rural Iowa. The occasion for her visit to quintessential small-town America was a gathering of the faithful that would have instantaneously erupted into a fervent campaign rally had she but given the word. Instead, it had been another day on the non–campaign trail, this one capped by a sweet victory: she had just attended the premiere of a glowingly positive documentary about her titled The Undefeated.

“The people of America are desperate for positive change, and deserving of positive change, to get us off of this wrong track,” she told me during a conversation that lasted late into the night and, inevitably, kept returning to the subject that has titillated the media and spooked Republican presidential contenders for months: her political intentions. “I’m not so egotistical as to believe that it has to be me, or it can only be me, to turn things around,” she said. “But I do believe that I can win.”

Two years after stepping down as governor of Alaska—not a retreat, she later said of the decision, quoting Korean War general Oliver Smith, but “advancing in another direction”—Palin has proved herself an enduring force capable, with minimal effort, of keeping political professionals and, especially, the press in a state of perpetual imbalance. This derives partly, of course, from her standing as a possible presidential candidate with presumed frontrunner potential, a status she seems inclined to maintain for as long as possible.

    Propagandists believe their own propaganda just as good liars believe their own lies. Hitler worshipped his own image too.

    She said “A national office.” She’s going to pass on the Presidency, claim to run for a senate seat, and continue to fleece her followers for as long as she can.

      No, there’s not enough prestige in being a Senator for her. She wants to rule the world. Besides, the thought of being just a Senator, having to show up daily, write legislation (OMG), co-operate with others, be out of the media spotlight, just being one of many instead of THE ONE, would send her screaming into a fetal position. 🙂

    And have you seen the cover of the next newsweek? Hideous as well as delusional. The last cover was a disaster, but this one?

    Sarah gets the the cover, braying that she can win, but a tiny blurb in the corner for the Murdochgate scandal?

    Ahhh.. another rag going down the tubes. I used to read NW, sorta, but they have lost me lately.

    She is delusional.

    Fits the profile of her mental illness perfectly. Grandiose ideas and beliefs is a giant red flag for NPD. Her illness seems to be picking up speed judging by her slovenly dress, disheveled hair, and more and more bizarre comments.

    She’s a Christo-Fascist nutjob just like Bachmann that would like to turn our country over to big business and god. She and her ilk would have our reproductive rights taken away as well as our choice regarding relationships with same or opposite sex. She’s a sick cookie who is not finding an audience outside of the “mentally challenged” 25% of our nation that will believe anything that they see on the TV.

    Are we sure she’s not just doing more political c*ck-teasing? Judging by the cover, I’d say so.

    Another disgusting display of her narcissism at its finest. She obviously learned nothing from the stylist that the RNC hired for her in 2008 since she still dresses like she bought her clothes without trying them on and wears them without washing them in between wearings. Does Palin ever wash her hair?? I’ve never seen her where she looks freshly bathed since 2008, either. What a disgusting idea for anyone to consider her “presidential” in any way.

    Her calling our President a sugar daddy is just another form of her disrespect for everyone else. She demands it for herself while she clearly doesn’t deserve an ounce of respect from anyone. How I wish this bitch would just STFU and take her entire family with her.

    ¨Advancing in another direction¨ = padded bra. She is afraid to come out and play. All she does is blink when asked about running.

    I’m not sure if this article is her way of saying “I could win it if I tried, but I’m not gonna and I’ve got a real good excuse: I’m sacrificing my presidential career for the love of my family, cause I’m the best darn mother on the planet”. In other words, she knows she can’t win due to her lack of popularity, so she has to come up with another reason for not trying.

    Or………is she possibly planning on running as a third party candidate, most probably the Tea Party?

    I guess my bet is on the latter, as she can then stay in the national spotlight, continue to rake in the dough, and when she loses, she can just blame it on our terrible two party system that goes against the wishes of The Founding Fathers and is all the fault of the Lamestream Media.

    Bristle, do these “cover girl” shots of your mother mean that now we can expect Michele Bachmann’s to show up with inflated boobs, seductive poses & sloppy & mismatched clothing? After all, she does copy $P’s style – according to you.

    Delete the ‘s after Bachmann. Don’t know why I put a possessive there. Guess I was just overcome by $P’s beauty & grace. 🙂

    ugh! palin probably realized only in the past few months that she would’nt have a prayer if she ran. However, every freaking week we’re inundated with yet another palin story and this woman is so in our faces I cannot stomach it anymore. Think about it. EVERY single week she is back in our faces and the media just keeps lapping it up and it’s all things palin, everyday, week after week, month after month. She has saturated the system and we’re all suffering ptsd from her relentless efforts to make sure she continues to stay in the spotlight – I’m so sick to death of her book tours, her tweets, her fb posts, her quotes, her fights, her silly bus tour, her lies,..REALLY sick of her strange family, and the minute by minute reporting of where she is, what she’s doing, what Todd is saying and how much she spent on the Arizona house. i love this blog and Syrin does an incredible job of exposing this trailer trash for what she is – my complaint is with the MSM and the inexcusable way they continue to give her a pass, chase after her and fail to hold her to the same standard they do with the prez or other politicians – although palin is not a politician. She’s a reality show celebrity with entertainment value so they’ll keep it up until we send a clear message – ENOUGH! Whenver they feel the need to distract the naive out there from getting too close to the truth – they roll out another pathetic shot of her in a sexual pose and she appears to love that more then anything else. I remember how nauseated i became with the paris hilton saturation and this is just the same but on a much bigger and much more disqusting level. ok, I’m done with my rant. Happy Monday.

    Notice as Palin’s ratings fall, she unbuttons another button on her top. Pretty soon, she will be topless and pole dancing in an effort to improve her ratings.

    quote from Sarah on msnbc this morning.”leading is more then giving speeches”

    WOW!! Someone should also give her this information.
    short short skirt! don’t do it, winking is a no,no blowing up the boobs doesn’t do it, then having them deflate doesn’t do it, posing like a cover girl doesn’t do it,low necklines, is a no, no,and always blaming someone else is not the way of a leader.

    I’m with those who say please go away, and take your creepy family with you.

    Well giddy up Worst Govenor Ever. Hop back on the bus and get on with your family vacation! Think of the photo oportunities!

    Bend over Palinbots, Palin might be headed your way!

    Screech is gonna scream, nevermind her record or accomplishments or solutions… it is all gonna be screechy hate, vile vulgar finger pointing and no gotcha questions, like what she ate for dinner.

    Has anyone done a resume of what Sarah Palin has done since she quit as governor? There she was with so much national attention, hating her actual job but wanting to be v-POTUS and stepping down from the ONE job that gave her any credibility to do. . . what? She wrote a couple of books that Amazon is giving away at bargain prices that people don’t seem keen to hold on to once they purchase, and she has traveled a bit. Why didn’t she decide to run a charity to help homeless women, or a start-up firm to help people start businesses? Her bots would have gone crazy to help her just by name recognition.

    It takes more than “fire in her belly” to run a country. She hasn’t tried to improve herself or to expand what she knows. As merely a princess, Princess Diana was knowledgeable on world affairs, ran or was on the board of several charities, and made peace with a press that she hated– and kept herself in great shape! What has Sarah Palin done?

    Her pics in Newsweek are beyond stupid. She needs to take a few months off, go to Montana, get her kids enrolled in exclusive private schools, and make herself busy with her Dominionist friends and plan for the apocalypse.

      What about her just being nice and starting a Boys n’ Girl’s Club for inner city kids in Anchorage and perhaps in NYC? They could have Scouts meet at both places and welcome various groups, and had tutors for kids after school.

      These are all things that she needed to do right after she quit, though. Shortly after Ted Steven’s plane crashed, she could have put some of her millions into starting a charity run in his name and publically asked for forgiveness for what she had said about him.

      She isn’t bettering the world as far as we can tell, and for someone in her station in life, who wants to be known and trusted and given more trust, she can’t be secret about it if she is so inclined. Is she washing feet at the homeless shelter in Anchorage? Is she publically doing Lenten activities to really serve and push herself out of her comfort zone?

      In the USA, her lack of experience could be forgiven if she were at least nice, but her lack of altruism and lack of brain power make her really weak.

      We aren’t seeing it where she wants to be either liked or effective.

        So correct! Sarah has done nothing but fatten her bank account for the past three years. She has not volunteered or given large donations to charities. Her latest Newsweek spread does not even mention her youngest (?) son. Most people with a special needs child would be assisting the cause. She doesn’t even have the time or the will to take care of her own special needs child.
