She is out of control:
Gov. Sarah Palin suggested that if the Republican ticket is defeated on Tuesday she expects to be a player in the next election four years from now, saying “I’m not doing this for naught.”
Way to avoid overshadowing the top of the ticket in the final days of the campaign, Sarah. Real team player you’re turning out to be.
UPDATE: Oh what a difference 4 days makes. Remember what Palin told Brian Williams in the interview that aired Friday:
As for furtherance in a political career, I’m not even gonna think about that. I’m thinkin’ between now and November 4th what it is we have to do in reaching out to the electorate and letting them know who John McCain is, what we represent, and how electing John McCain is the right decision for the future of America.
Someone’s been reading too much of her own press. From today’s NYT:
Her prospects, in or out of government, are the subject of intensive conversations among conservative leaders, including the group that will meet next Wednesday in rural Virginia to weigh social, foreign policy and economic issues, as well as the political landscape and the next presidential election.
If the Republican party considers Sarah Palin its future, they’re in worse shape than I thought. It’s not like she’s an intellectual giant who just needs time to learn the nuances of national politics. She’s a former beauty queen, a pathological liar, dumb as a post, completely self-absorbed, and utterly unaware.
That should win you back some votes 4 years from now. Have at it.
