Oh, please, please, pretty please let it be true. Rumor is that Sarah Palin may have let it slip last weekend that she plans to run for President of the United States in 2012. What on earth could be better for the Democrats than for the former ex-quitting Governor of Alaska to be the nominee for either the Republican Party or her new found BFFs, the Tea Party? Just imagine the debate questions such as, “Ms. Palin, please tell us in detail how long you would endure probing questions from the press and allegations of ethical impropriety before quitting the Presidency?” Or, “Just for shits and giggles, could you please name the seven continents?” Or maybe, “Sarah could you tell us what newspapers and magazines do you read?” Oh wait, Katie Couric already asked that one. Anyway, you guys get it.
But seriously, last weekend while being interviewed on Fox News (where else?) by Chris Wallace, when asked about her White House ambitions, Palin responded,
It really comes down to it’s not being about me, or what I want, or what I predict is gonna happen. … [I]f the voters of America are in the mood for a kind of unconventional, candid, honest public servant — it doesn’t necessarily have to be me — but if that’s what they’re in the mood for, they’re going to let that be known, and they’re going to help really propel and push that candidate forward, and then that candidate, of course, will make the decision whether to run or not. Don’t know if that’s going to me, Chris. … As I’ve always said, I’m not going to close any door that perhaps would be open.
If that door does open Sarah, don’t let it hit you on the ass on the way out!
A future Palin candidacy would be sure to provide enough material for a sequel to this video of her greatest hits:
We have just learned that the Curse of Sarah Palin continues. You might recall that the Blast-Off posted a story a few days ago about Palin’s endorsement of Vaughn Ward in the Idaho Republican Congressional primary. You might also recall that Ward is the guy that thinks that Puerto Rico is a foreign country. Well, never fear. Inasmuch as the curse of Palin is in full effect, Ward lost the election on Tuesday. Palin has now cursed John McCain, Doug Hoffman, Tim Burns and now Vaughn Ward. Will Nikki Haley an/or Rand Paul be next?

BORN TO RUN
(sung to the Bruce Springsteen song “Born To Run”)
In the day she sweats it out on the streets, she’s a runner-up beauty pageant queen
At night she tears her hair out in worry atop Todd’s snow-machine
Hate filled rages at the five and dime
High heeled, misdirected and sporting a sixties beehive, Whoa
Wasilla town hopes she never comes back
She’s a dumb quack, a political hack
Sarah speaketh with a forked tongue
But tramps like her, baby they were born to run
(yes she will run)
Sarah’s got thin skin but she’ll run again
She can’t find work on television
SarahPAC will cater to her whims
Their dedicated to her mission
Together they will dish out crap
She’ll run till she drops, maybe from a heart attack, Whoa
All her friends, she’ll continue to hire
‘cause baby she wants to be the next “Decider”
But her wagon has lost all its wheels
She behaves like a little child girl, a pitbull refusing to heel
(full of baloney)
She’s filled with malice right down to the bones buried in her backyard
She casts no reflection in brand new mirrors
Like a vampire caught off guard
Her unfeeling heart, rises cold and dark
A dominatrix with an iron fist
She’s gonna try to befriend thee in the deep dark night
With a wink and a blown kiss, Huhh
(one two three four…)
She’s got a bunch of Fox News zeroes that fuel her hopes and drive
Sarah Palin likes you if you are white and have no use for gay pride
Every Wednesday she will give an address
That will reveal all the madness in her soul, Whoa
Someday girl, we don’t know when, you’ll learn that you’re a disgrace
Something we already know, her career will be done
But till then just like puss, Sarah will return to run
Oh, Sarah just like puss, baby we hope that you run
Please believe me, all of us baby, sure hope that you will run
Today’s edition of “Stupid Things Said By Republican Politicians” features Michigan Congressman Pete Hoekstra. You remember this liar don’t you? He’s the guy that ran for office in 1992 and promised to serve no more than six terms (12 years) in the House, and not to accept any money from political action committees. Well, in 2004, Hoekstra broke his term limits pledge by announcing that he would run for a seventh term and in 2006, he accepted over $160,000 in Policial Action Contributions. Obviously, this is a guy who’s word can be trusted.
Yesterday, Hoekstra appeared on Fox News‘ Chris Wallace Sunday and boy did he have some salient remarks. He said that it is “fair” to hold the Obama administration responsible for the recent attempted Northwest Airlines terrorist attack. Here are the remarks:
Wallace – “You were quoted in the Detroit Free Press this morning as saying that, you know, the key is to connect the dots and maybe the Obama administration will now realize that. Is it really fair to hold the Obama administration responsible here?”
Hoekstra – “Yeah, I think it really is. Connecting the dots here is not really on this particular case. It’s connecting the dots that we’ve seen over the last 11 months, over the last eight years.”
Really, Pete? Just wondering, but did you hold the Bush administration responsible for failing to connect the dots between the August 2001 written daily intelligence report to Bush which warned that al Qaeda and Osama bin Laden were preparing to attack the U.S. possibly by hijacking planes and the actual 9/11 attacks? Pete, you must remember when White house spokesman Ari Fleisher said,
There was . . . an awareness by the government, including the president, of Osama bin Laden and the threat he posed in the United States and around the world, That included long-standing speculation about hijacking…
Gee, those sure look like some dots that could have been connected, don’t they Pete? Were you so forthright in pointing that out in 2001 after the attacks? No? Why are we not surprised, Mr. No PAC Money Term Limits?

A DAY IN THE LIFE (OF THE G.O.P.)
(sung to the Beatles song “A Day In The Life”)
I read the news today oh, boy
About a senator who made the grade
And though the news was rather sad
Well, I just had to laugh
Is there a photograph?
John Ensign’s tryst will leave a scar
A “family values” guy who’s values changed
His dirty laundry will be aired
We’ve seen his kind before
In hypocrisy the G.O.P. wins all of the awards
I watched the news today oh, boy
Seems David Vitter spent time with a whore
It was a girl so he’s not gay
But here’s the funny hook
It’s all in her book
He’d love to make her gone
Horned up and out of bed
Larry Craig needed some head
Went to the airport to find a pup
Things looking up, he thought he found some bait
Found a leg to give a pat
Caught a bust in seconds flat
Gave a poor excuse when the news broke
Just another joke in the dirty G.O.P.
Ah, ah,ah, ah, ah, ah ,ah ……….
I read the news today oh, boy
The Sunshine State’s Mark Foley is a queer
These guys spew hate but have no balls
The party’s sure to fall
Hypocritical A-holes heading straight into a wall
They’d love to turn you on
