Bad Sarah, bad Sarah, whatcha you gonna do?

Sarah Palin just can’t make up her mind.

She wants attention. She craves attention. She took a bus tour to Iowa with the sole purpose of getting attention.

Yet she says she still hasn’t decided if she will run for President in 2012.

That’s because her actions have little to do with actually running for the nation’s top job.

It’s all about publicity.

Palin craves the public eye. Without it, she’s nothing and with her political star fading faster than the tea party that once embraced her shallow but attention-getting star power, she’s left with little else to do but keep people guessing.

At the Iowa State Fair on Friday she answered a question about her Presidential plans with “I am accepting an invitation to be here to experience this wonderful, historic event on our ‘One Nation’ bus tour.”

Huh?

Some political observers tell Capitol Hill Blue that Palin’s time has passed, that she can’t compete with Michelle Bachmann for support from the extreme right-wing of the Republican Party — her only actual political base.

“For Palin, it’s all about the limelight,” says one, who asked not to be identified. “She wants the spotlight more than the job.”

Others feel Texas Gov. Rick Perry will take Palin’s place with the right.

“The longer Palin waits, the greater the chance that Texas Gov. Rick Perry – who enters the race today in South Carolina and is scheduled to stump in Iowa on Sunday – could take Palin’s place in the hearts of the social conservatives whom Palin and Perry appeal to,” writes Joe Garofoli of The San Francisco Chronicle.

Former Republican Congressman Joe Scarborough — host of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” — offers an interesting analysis of Palin, saying she has a “questionable right to govern” while calling her “the Republican Party’s Barack Obama.”

    Like the marble figures on Keats’s Grecian Urn, Sarah Palin’s eternal star-power shall not fade. Forever will we love, and she be fair.

    What’s next, a Playboy centerfold?

    The thing that really gets me is that there are so many people that actually believe this crazy b**ch.

    Wake up.
