Just When You Thought She Was Out…….

She hints about jumping back in:

Sarah Palin says it’s not too late for someone to jump into the Republican presidential race.

Asked by Fox Business Network about the likelihood that she’d become a candidate, the former Alaska governor and 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee said it’s not too late for “folks” to jump in. Said Palin: “Who knows what will happen in the future.”

The full interview is scheduled for broadcast Monday night.

Palin told Fox News Channel over the weekend that she felt no enthusiasm for anyone in the current GOP field and that she needed to feel something before she would offer an endorsement.

    Maybe she is doing this becuase she thinks someone might just be stupid enough to pick her as a running mate.

    As I mentioned on another thread before this was posted:

    I’ve been living right…but not this right.

    I’ve done nothing to deserve this blessing. If I believed in god, I would get on my knees and thank her.

    @ V V…
    No one is as dumb as McCain.

  4. Tano says:

    I imagine she was surprised with how quickly she became a has-been nobody, after she announced she was not running. She has tried several times to get people to notice her since then, but no one seems to be interested. So she is back to trying the only thing that kept her in the game. Its desperation.

    For some reason my witty remarks were snagged by anti spam…or… I’m just not that witty after all!

    I keep on hearing the Hokey Pokey…

  7. Hey, the GOP cycle has demonstrated that anyone can be a not-Romney. Why not Sarah? I mean if Herman could do it ..

  8. Ernieyeball says:

    How can she jump back in? She never said she was running.
    Oh wait. Maybe Princess 1/2 a term was 1/2 way to declaring her candidacy when she said she would not throw her bonnet into the ring.
    Now that more than 1/2 of the Republican field has proven that it only takes 1/2 a brain to represent the GOP 1/2 Governor Palin is out to prove:

    “Nothing from Nothing Leaves Nothin”

    I wondered why I saw fireworks and bonfires being lit all over Studio City; Jay Leno’s gag writers will be celebrating all night long it appears.

    Grifting a little more in the way of money from her rubes and a dose of spotlight envy, in no particular order.

  11. anjin-san says:

    She has been shopping a new reality show, no takers. A girl has to make a living…

    What this clown car needs is more clowns.

    @Tsar Nicholas:

    Came here to say that. She fell out of the spotlight nearly instantaneously. Now lacking the coverage and deference she once had she’s pining for relevance again.

  14. Davebo says:

    It’s just Sarah proving once again that some Republicans can indeed swallow a broomstick.

    Seriously Sarah, we already knew that.
