How Will The GOP Stop Sarah Palin?

November 10, 2010

The GOP wants to win the White House in 2012.

Sarah Palin might run, and could be nominated in some quirky way.

But she could never win a national contest for the Oval Office.

So….the GOP is trying to find something to do with the “attractive nuisance”.  I would offer her for a space program but the Russians already put a monkey in orbit in the 1960’s.

There is no need to buy theatre tickets……this show is free and can be viewed from your living room courtesy of the Republican Party.

But the overlay of social and Tea Party conservatism is everywhere becoming more defined, and Palin is the intersection of these two ideological sectors. Her own life is a human diorama of social conservative principles, and she is now strategically developing the part of her profile that earned her ridicule as a vice presidential candidate.

Watching Palin drop foreign policy and economic nuggets into the twitterverse confirms that the real agenda for Palin is President Palin, and therein lies fresh terror for Republicans. She’s too powerful to ignore, and too (fill-in-the-blank) to take seriously.

She is – in a word yet again whispered rather than uttered – “Dangerous.”

Not only would Palin the presidential candidate drive away other Republican candidates, but she would most certainly lose a national election. Thus, the GOP finds itself in a pickle: How to shed itself of this attractive nuisance?
