p.s. what happens to Palin after november 4th?
I’ve been wondering about the fate of sarah Palin after novenber 4th, and I am now convinced, more than ever, that she will dissapear into Alaska, never to emerge again. Not only because of insanely deep embarrassment and shame for being featured as an ingnorant substitution to Hillary Clinton’s disenfranchised voters, but also for her sheer lack of intellect and experience, as exemplified by certain interviews in which she blatantly skirts the questions asked of her and makes an obvious fool of herself. (Huffington post on “Sarah Palin’s Bush Doctrine Mishap“)
According to Kevin Drum
Sarah Palin will disappear into a well-deserved obscurity after the election is over. She is not a “comer.” She is not the future of the Republican Party. She will not run for president in 2012. In fact, she won’t maintain any kind of serious national political standing at all. At best, she’ll spend the next few years being a celebrity starter at NASCAR races and speaking at Republican prayer breakfasts. At worst, she’ll be an occasional butt of late night comics.
Palin is lazy, ill-informed, contemptuous of policy, and way too convinced that everybody in the country is dazzled by her folksy energy and thousand-watt smile. Yes, the diehard GOP base is rapturously in love with Palin and her media mockin’ ways, but that’s more a reflection on the base’s future, not hers. Palin is a three-day wonder who’s already a month past her sell-by date, and on November 5th she’ll disappear to Wasilla for good.
Hell yes, Mr. Drum. The possibility of such an inexperienced individual carrying so much on her shoulders was, in my opinion, the biggest vote changer of them all. So thanks, Sarah.
