Run Sarah Run!

It’s certainly not my first choice. The Republican Party is the Party of Lincoln and Reagan, and the planks in the platform are right for this country. I stand strong on those planks. I just wish that more of our leadership, the movers and shakers within the Party, would stand strong on those planks with the rest of us…It tempts one to believe that if they in the Party abandon us, we have no other choice.
On the other hand, running and losing, whether to Treadwell or Begich, would hurt the Palin brand, and it’s hard to imagine that Gov. Half Term would have the discipline for a Senate run. She clearly prefers taking potshots at President Obama from the perch of her Facebook page, or facing adoring crowds at the NRA and CPAC, or worshipful interviews by her Fox friends, to the give and take of political debate.
When Hannity pressed her about what might make her run, Palin replied:
Well, I think any American with a heart for service has to always have in the back of their mind that they would do anything, everything that they could, to help the cause, even if perhaps if it’s something that doesn’t look necessarily appealing or necessarily fitting in with a conventional plan. … I would do whatever I could to help, and if that was part of that help, then it would have to be considered.
What a selfless public servant. Run Sarah run!
