Yes, Sarah Palin is considering a Presidential run.
Yes, she would do it is she thought the country needed her and if she thought it was “right” for America and her family.
No, we’re not making this up.
Palin told Fox News — one of her employers — that it would be “absurd” for her to not consider running for President in 2012.
“I would, I would if I believe that is the right thing to do for our country and the Palin family. Certainly I would do so,” said said. “I think that it would be absurd to not consider what it is that I could potentially do to help our country … . I won’t close a door that perhaps could be open for me in the future.”
Asked if she knows more today about domestic and foreign affairs than she did two years ago, Palin said “well, I would hope so.”
Palin says her focus “has widened” since she was governor of Alaska and ran for Vice President on John McCain‘s losing ticket in 2008, adding that she gets daily briefings by e-mail on domestic and foreign policy issues from “advisers in Washington.”
Palin also defended right-wing talk show host Rush Limbaugh for using the word “retards” even though she openly criticized White House Chief of Staff Rahmn Emanuel for use of the word.
“They are kooks, so I agree with Rush Limbaugh,” she said. “Rush Limbaugh was using satire. I didn’t hear Rush Limbaugh calling a group of people whom he did not agree with ‘f-ing retards,’ and we did know that Rahm Emanuel, as has been reported, did say that. There is a big difference there.”
