Sarah Palin: Don't call us, we'll call you

Sarah Palin thinks her supporters are sad she decided not to run for President.

She’s wrong.

Sarah’s faithful didn’t want her to run anyway.

Which begs the question: Why follow her in the first place?

Appearing on Fox News Thursday, Palin — who announced a day eariier that she would not seek the GOP Presidential nomination — apoligized for her cult-like following for stringing them along for months with candidate-style actions before saying “nada” to a run.

“I apologize to those whom are disappointed in this decision,” Palin told Greta Van Susteren.” “I’ve been hearing from them in the last couple of hours. But I believe that they, when they take a step back, will understand why the decision was made and understand that, really, you don’t need a title to make a difference in this country. I think that I’m proof of that.”

Polls, however, suggest Palin was speaking to a constituency that wasn;t there. Few of her supporters wanted her in the race and those don’t support the former Alaska governor wanted her even less.

Palin’s time has passed.  Even the tea party has moved on to other standard bearers like Micheele Bachmann and Rick Perry.

The Palin Express has crashed. Move along folks. Nothing to see here.

Doug Thompson published his first story and photo at age 11 -- a newspaper article about racism and the Klan in Prince Edward County, VA, in 1958. From that point on, he decided to become a newspaperman and did just that -- reporting news and taking photos full-time at his hometown paper, becoming the youngest full-time reporter at The Roanoke Times in Virginia in 1965 and spent most of the past 55+ years covering news around the country and the globe. After a short sabbatical as a political operative in Washington in the 1980s, he returned to the news profession in 1992. Today, he is a contract reporter/photojournalist for BHMedia and owns Capitol Hill Blue and other news websites.


  1. Now with luck she won’t take all the fortune she’s made in the past three years and invest it in the stock market. The last thing this country needs is for her to lose those millions, with the result that she worms her way back into the spotlight to make all that cash back.

  2. If there ever was an airhead using her brief few moments in the political spotlight for greedy personal gain, it’s Sarah Palin.

    I think most thinking Americans with half a brain have her number.

    She needs to sit down and shut up.

  3. No Sarah, you don’t need a title to make a difference.

    Wow, that was fast, I feel a difference already!!!

    Thank you Sarah.
