Sarah Palin's radar picks up no signals

I'm still thinking!Sarah Palin has told Oprah Winfrey that a run for the presidency in 2012 is not on her radar. The thing about radars is that they can pick up extraordinary things. In some cases, the operator thinks there's an extraterrestrial object out there. In any case, it's no good looking at the radar today. Palin needs to keep checking the equipment. I bet she'll find at least a few blips on the screen. One or two neocons popping up, a couple of Alaskan oil workers, fundamentalist Bible-bashers, all kinds. Even detractors blowing her a few raspberries!

The first maxim of politics is "Never say never". She didn't say never, but she implied the radar would and that her radar is working well. "It's not on my radar screen right now", she told Oprah, as if to say it might flicker across the screen at a later date. She'll need to keep the electricity flowing through it as much as she has a growing band of eager-beaver nominators. There could come a time when they all ask "is this the time, Sarah?" and she replies, "Radar Says NO!"


If you will be kind enough to allow me, I would like to propose a toast:

Here's to Sarah Palin; may she never - EVER - go away.

I am going to go out on a limb here: No woman since Eleanor Roosevelt has done more to further the cause of progressive politics in the United States of America than our Sarah.

Don'cha just love her? I sure do!

She has an inbuilt instinct, and natural ability to unmask the innate horrors of socialism. It seems a century of unlimited horror, Mao, Stalin PolPot and countless millions of deaths have not penetrated the sophisticated minds of our intelligentsia and swathes of our debased politicians. But here is a little lady, really an iron maiden, with an instinct for the jugular of the socialist monster. There are plenty who will follow such a born leader.

How could I forget Adolph Hitler, a National Socialist almost as socialist as Mao and Stalin!

Sounds to me like she may have the encouragement to get that her radar equipment more finely tuned!
