Is the voting public ready for more “gotchas,” “gull darns,” and “I betchas?” I’m not, but it looks like it may happen. Sarah Palin, the former ‘half-term’ governor, wants to represent the people of Alaska and become a United States Senator. If the people of Alaska trust her, and I don’t know why they would, she will most likely follow another TEA Party darling, and serve half of a Senator’s term as did Jim DeMint? He deserted the people who elected him and became a lobbyist.
I personally don’t believe that the people of Alaska lack the intelligence she believes they do. She is a self-serving know-nothing. They shouldn’t be willing to elect her as ‘moose catcher.’
‘Caribou Barbie’ was on Sean Hannity’s radio show Tuesday. He asked her if she had future political ambitions. He specifically asked her if the rumors about her running for the Senate from Alaska were true.
Palin responded: “I’ve considered it because people have requested me considering it.
“I’m still waiting to see, you know, what the lineup will be and hoping that, there again, there will be some new blood, new energy — not just kind of picking from the same old politicians in the state,” Palin said.
Democrat Mark Begich is up for reelection. Palin remarked about him.
Saying Begich “has got to be replaced,” Palin said he “has not done what he has promised to do for the people of Alaska, and that was to represent what it is that the nation needs in terms of energy development and so many other … development issues that are near and dear to an Alaskan’s heart.”
So, there you have it. Palin has unofficially declared that she will challenge Begich for his Senate seat.
Recently Palin indicated she was separating herself from the Republican Party. She hinted that it was ‘too liberal.’ She has hinted that she may begin her own political party.
If egos made great world leaders, Palin would be the best the world has ever seen. But it’s does not. The ability to use intelligence, diplomatic skills, and divorce one’s self from emotional issues that divide our country are important. Leaving personal issues behind, and considering the needs of a nation of some 300 million people makes a good legislator. Unfortunately, Palin has none of those skills.
Palin’s pride and ego may actually prevent her from running. If she has even basic intelligence, she must be aware that she would most likely be embarrassed.
Yes, we could see half-governor Sarah Palin run for a Senate seat, and if she won, she might serve only half-a-term.
