Sarah Palin for President in 2012? Doesn’t Look Like It

I think this is a smart move for her.  I think that she can do a whole lot more from the sidelines than with running.  Why?  Because she would have to overcome the media narrative for her intelligence in order to win, and that would be difficult.

Impressions stick, and as long as the media can keep her in the spotlight and reinforce their template, then she would have difficulty in appealing to the broad spectrum of the American People.

And it doesn’t look like she’s gearing up for a run, considering her schedule:

Just Another Pretty Face?

Americans expect more from women.  It’s not enough to be bright or have the ability to multi-task.  We also expect them to look good.

Ann Althouse took this us with the image above (click to see article) in a discussion about a series of statements Rush Limbaugh made about whether the American people would like to watch a woman age in office.  And I think that her commentary on the issue is spot on.

What is the pulse of the culture?  Where is it going?  What are the trends?

It is on Thursdays we’ll tackle some of the big issues of living in today’s society.  We’ll talk about leaders and those that influence what is going on around us.  We’ll talk about cultural trends and whether or not they’re inevitable.

On this day is where we’ll be applying a Biblical Worldview to all that’s going on around us.

Sarah Palin Steps Down

What’s next for former Governor Sarah Palin?  I’m not sure that even she knows the answer to that question.

Obviously she needed to get into a position where she could make enough money to defend herself.  And regardless of what you think of her, this whole episode of resignation was an interesting exercise in what makes a person make the news.

Palin Vs. Letterman

I don’t think that Gov. Sarah Palin has a good chance of getting anywhere close to the White House.  Don’t get me wrong, from what I’ve seen of her policies and passion I believe that she could have been a great Vice President, but some of the things that are happening are colluding to make it even more difficult for her should she try to run.

On Palin as Vice President

Many of you know that I have struggled with the idea of Gov. Palin being Vice President from a Scriptural side of concept.  I personally believe that God has chosen—by His will, for His own reasons—to create man first, and to use this as the basis for leadership (in the home, in the church, and in the country).

Palin the Scapegoat?

I guess I still don’t get it.  Why is it that we’re still getting treated from stories, both in the MSM and from the McCain camp, that bill Gov. Palin as unqualified to take the Presidency, and we’re supposed to take that at face value when compared to the relative inexperience of Sen. Obama?

Why is this even a credible argument?  That’s part of what I get reading this new Politico article.  In this text, the author takes McCain’s camp at face value:

The most bizarre election ever

October 30th, 2008 Viewed 2058 times

I’m trying to remember without misappropriating my memories, but I do believe this has been the oddest election season ever.  The election of 2000 was strange, surreal even, but I don’t remember the lead-up being so bizarre.

Although I do love politics, I don’t have much time for it until it comes down to the last couple of months before an election.   This year, I snoozed right through the Democratic Convention and Senator Obama’s speech, right up to the point when Senator John McCain chose Sarah Palin and electrified the race.

Closing Arguments

art.palin.giJust one week before the election, and it’s wild what we find ourselves talking about:

Obama Campaign

We’re told by the MSM that Sen. Obama has shifted to making less partisan “closing arguments” (like the lawyer he is) to try to seal the deal and finish ahead.
