Palin and her “magical thinking”

Anyone who has watched Sarah Palin closely in recent months can only marvel at the “magical thinking” she embraces with respect to the potential outcome of the Republican Party primary for president. It’s clear that Palin still has her sights set on the White House for 2012. Most call it delusional!

By Geoffrey Dunn

In an interview with Sean Hannity in February, she declared:

[A] brokered convention, I wouldn’t be afraid of that. The electorate shouldn’t be afraid of that. That’s a continuation of the process, and competition that perhaps would be, in the end, very good for our party, and good for the cause of defending our republic.

In her widely reported interview with CNN on Super Tuesday, she openly stated that she would consider accepting the nomination at a brokered GOP convention:

Anything is possible. I don’t close any doors that perhaps would be open out there, so, no, I wouldn’t close that door. My plan is to be at that convention.

It’s a line she has uttered repeatedly ever since her ill-fated candidacy as John McCain’s running mate in 2008. To most casual observers of the American political process, even Republicans, this would seem to border on the delusional. Her favorability rating among the general populace is now staggeringly low. In many circles, she is a laughingstock or a punch line. She didn’t even bother to enter the primaries. Even Ann Coulter has now turned against her.

But a close look at Palin’s recent activities and statements — and, most significantly, the writings of her acolytes — reveals that she is still plotting to take the White House in 2012. Take a look at the video she released last month on her website entitled “Chords of Memory,” which links Palin’s image with those of Lincoln and Reagan.

Palin has been consistent about four things since she announced her decision not to enter the Republican primaries last October:

1) She has strongly and vociferously attacked GOP frontrunner Mitt Romney;

2) She has embraced the idea of an endless primary season and has encouraged all four of the remaining candidates to stay in the race — her sole purpose being the outcome of a brokered GOP convention in Tampa;

3) She has continued with her obsessive assault on Barack Obama, positioning herself as the “anti-Obama” among the conservative Republican base;

4) And, as noted above, she has made it clear now on several occasions that she is “open” to accepting the GOP nomination in Tampa.

At least one source close to the Palin family in Wasilla, Alaska, has confirmed that Palin “still believes it is God’s will” that she serve as president, if not in 2012 then perhaps in 2016.

    I do think that Sarah Palin is crazy enough to think that the GOP will come crawling to her at the convention. I don’t think that she understands that, if nominated, all of those sordid truths would come out. Sarah Palin was not vetted in 2008 by the Republicans and she certainly was not vetted by the national media. This time, in top spot, she would have to face the harsh light of the real world.

      I’m with you. I really think she believes she can “cheat” her way onto the ticket. Avoid all the hard work, and then ride in like a white knight to “save” the country.

      It’s a scary thought because as lame as the Republican field is right now, I fear it might actually happen. 😦

    The world of Palin is rooted in her mental illness, ignorance, hatefulness, insecurity and just plain stupidity. She was a nightmare waiting to happen when McCain picked her as his running mate. She was completely unqualified, but McCain was so desperate that even a cursory vetting was not done. Too little, too late when it finally dawned on McCain’s staff that she was totally unqualified and unfit.

    That Palin would think it is “God’s will” that she become president the next time around is pathetic and absurd. It is all in her little, warped mind. Money, money and more money anyway she can get it. She is just a crazy person and a stupid one at that. It will be interesting to see how this plays out. Palin should be all done by then.

      It never seems to occur to Palin that God has far too many irons in the fire and is far too busy to bother about her lunatic beliefs.

    She seems to be clawing her way deeper and deeper to the dark side. Her psychosis is popping its ugly head up more frequently and more blatantly. Do the people of her inner circle really not see it? It’s frightening and sad. On the other hand, I have no idea what Alaska’s laws are regarding forced treatment of the mentally ill.

    “Magical thinking” is believing that something will happen if you wish for it hard enough. But there’s one kind of “magical thinking” that can be guaranteed to work: if enough Americans really don’t want her to be President, she won’t be!
