The Palins! Group Drafts Sarah While Bristol Ditches Levi

Love it or hate it, it looks like this might be a four-year presidential campaign. The "2012 Draft Sarah Committee" has started collecting donations for a Palin 2012 run for president. The funds raised by the Connecticut political group will be used for grassroots organizing.

Meanwhile, Levi Johnston's sister is making sure all the Palins stay in the news (or tabloid magazines, same thing). Levi's sister Mercede told Star magazine that Bristol Palin broke up with the father of her son Tripp a month ago, and won't bring the baby to the Johnstons' house because she doesn't want him around "white trash."

If Palin throws her hat in the ring, I'm sure we'll be hearing all about the Palins for a while. Let's just hope the presidential campaign waits more than two months into Obama's term to begin. That's probably wishful thinking.

I hope Sarah runs, I mean really she is such a great role model and smart too, she can she Russia from Alaska, wonder if she could see the break up coming from unwed daughter.
Please don't use "our biggest state" as an accomplishment. The population of the state makes it very misleading. In 2000, Dallas, TX had a population of about 1.1 million people (and I can confidently state that it has risen since then), Alaska's 2007 population was fewer than 700,000.

Did I say her mention would make or break it? No. But if she had said the Economist, people would have said she was lying. If she said the Anchorage Daily News, people would have said she doesn't have broad knowledge. She would have gotten torn apart no matter what her answer.

Oh and I just feel sorry for the woman that Bristol will probably become in about 10 years or so.

I am not looking forward to her running not because of her qualifications but because I don't agree with a lot of her views. I also don't see it as a sign of good leadership when most of the people I've seen interviewed from your constituency don't think you would make a good president. *I know some one could say something about the left leaning media and skewed reporting but if that is how you feel please refer to my first sentence*

Compare Palin to Obama on paper? That's fine, she looks fantastic on paper doesn't she? How about integrity? I'm not sure how that woman lives her life, but she seems to be caught up in a lot of drama. What's that all about? I respect the fact that she's a strong woman (which most of us are), but that's all I'll give to her.

"Would someone please, please, tell me what made Obama qualified to the chief executive? " Intelligence. An understanding of the world, not just Alaska. He was an attorney, a law professor as well as a community organizer and a senator. It took Palin five years to get a four year degree at how many different schools. She is mediocre at best. After eight years of a lack of intelligence in the white house, I would think we could at least all agree we don't want that to happen again.

I can't wait for her to run. Not because I think she will do a good job but rather I need a good laugh. Why they are at it the GOP should throw Rush into the ring and let the two debate it out. That is something I would watch.

Trap question? To endorse one paper or another? That's what you got from a question like "what do you read"? Is a vice-presidential candidate's mere mention of a newspaper enough to make or break it? When has that ever happened?
Modus-Vivendi Modus-Vivendi 8 years
Oh, please. Palin would not be my pick for 2012, but thinking Africa was a country was just a rumor, and it's not that she couldn't name a newspaper, it's that she declined to. I thought it was smart not to give her endorsement to one paper or another. She didn't walk into the trap question.

There is a big difference in IQ. Palin is somewhat an idiot, as shown in her interviews. But for people who also think that Africa is a country and can't name any newspaper they read, that's probably not a problem.

I am so sick of hearing that Palin is not qualified. She has been a mayor. She has been governor. If she had been a Democrat she would have been a super star. Would someone please, please, tell me what made Obama qualified to the chief executive? Two years in the state senate? Lots of those people around. Community organizer? Don't think so. Two years in the Senate of which he spent most of the time campaigning with his teleprompter in tow? Not hardly. BUT he was still elected. So how does Palin, who by the way will continue to govern our largest state, not compare? That said I'm glad we have 2 plus years to sort through who might actually lead the Republican party. So far no one comes close to being a celebrity like Obama. And in the United States of Entertainment the Republicans likely have no chance. But I do think they can make great strides to muck up the current status quo in Congress.

Exactly what I said six months ago... never thought those two would get married. Wonder if she would have offered the child for adoption if she knew that she was going to be a teenage single parent. I did see a Palin 2012 bumper sticker last week. Sure, spend four years running, so everyone can have plenty of time to see the real Sarah.

Just ugh. You know, in this past election, the people who started campaigning two years before came off as really annoying and jumping the gun [obviously the political climate is going to change in two or four years' time] I don't think four is going to make any difference. So what about Bristol? First abstinence is unrealistic, then she breaks up with the father of her Sounds like typical teenage behavior to me.

Is it surprising that they broke up?? And as for Sarah Palin, I hope the GOP comes up with a much better candidate, there are way better qualified people in the party who are well spoken and know what is going on in the world

gooniette - Maybe it's supposed to be: ...the father of her son, Tripp, a month ago and... Actually even with the comma placement around Tripp it is still an odd sentence.

Citizen, I usually don't complain about grammar mishaps, but that second paragraph barely makes sense. I had to read it three times to get the jist of it. It's like you're having fun with commas, but don't actually know where they need to be. Why does "a month ago" need to be in between commas?

Tia, I still don't understand why that's selfish.

Mich, I didn't phrase that right, what I meant was the Sarah Palin portion of the post. The committee that's already starting the donation campaign to help her in a possible 2012 run.
