Palin – Beck 2012
“Former Alaska GOP Gov. Sarah Palin on Wednesday did not rule out running for president alongside Fox News host Glenn Beck in 2012,” Andy Barr reports for Politico.
Palin was asked during an interview with Fox News’s “Fox & Friends” about the chances that she “would run on a ticket with Fox’s own Glenn Beck,” as the conservative outlet Newsmax reported might be a possibility in 2012.
“I saw that, I saw that; he probably got a kick out of that,” Palin said. “It was just a hoot, too, to hear such a thing.”
“I don’t know,” she said. “We’ll see, we’ll see.”
Palin did not specifically tell Newsmax that she was considering a run with Beck but did tout the controversial television and radio host as “bold” during her interview with the conservative magazine.
Glenn Beck, I have great respect for,” she said. “He gets his message across in such a clever way.” “He calls it like he sees it, and he’s very, very, very effective,” Palin added.
This is one of those silly stories that circulates from time to time. But a Palin-Beck ticket would certainly energize the race! And assure that I don’t vote for the Republican presidential ticket, breaking a string of seven straight going back to 1984.
