She’s running. You betcha. I heard her come close to saying it outright today. I wasn’t drunk and I assure you I’m not delusional. Gov. Sarah Palin all but announced her bid for the Republican nomination for 2012. I don’t see why the CNN commentators seemed so befuddled as to her reasons after the announcement unless they’d had one too many martinis at lunch.
… you’re naive if you don’t see the national full-court press picking away right now: A good point guard drives through a full court press, protecting the ball, keeping her eye on the basket… and she knows exactly when to pass the ball so that the team can WIN. And I’m doing that – keeping our eye on the ball that represents sound priorities – smaller government, energy independence, national security, freedom! And I know when it’s time to pass the ball – for victory.—I do not want to disappoint anyone with my decision; all I can ask is that you TRUST me with this decision – but it’s no more "politics as usual".
