Sarah Palin getting in the race?

By MAGGIE HABERMAN & KENNETH P. VOGEL

From here:



Ken Vogel and I both have sources telling us that calls were made on behalf of a mystery candidate to various early states to determine presidential filing deadlines.

The calls were made by representatives of the law firm Baker Hostetler - a firm that employs lawyer Mark Braden, who represents Sarah PAC, her political action committee.

As Ken notes, while he nor representatives of Palin’s campaign would comment on the calls, Palin is the only GOP politician eying the presidential race who is represented by the firm.

The current thinking in GOP election law circles is that the first hard cut-off for entering the race is Oct. 28, when presidential candidates who hope to appear on the ballot in the New Hampshire primary would be required to submit a filing fee from a federally registered presidential campaign committee.

Hmmmm. That would add another solid conservative to the race.  In my opinion the only conservatives in the race right now are Michele Bachmann and Herman Cain.  I think Sarah would add some excitement to the race just because the media will embarrass itself (over and over) while trying to embarrass her.  Ohhhhhh, they hate her with a white-hot hate.

I guarantee if Sarah gets in the race you will be subjected to daily reports claiming she's stupid.  Not only that but you'll be continuously reminded that she had an affair with a black basketball player (at least, so says some knucklehead) ... not that the media cares about the color of your skin, mind you ... but, ahem, he was black and they have to report that because it's a "fact."  The only time they don't report about skin color is when someone commits a crime ... cuz then, it's not important ... get it?

I'd vote for any of these three right now but I'm really liking Herman Cain because of one thing ... he's a HUGE supporter of the Fair Tax.  And I think the Fair Tax is the single most important thing we could do to turn the economy around 180 degrees,  increase personal liberty, and rip the power from the hands of the disgusting, squandering, politicians in Washington DC.

Hey, did I mention that Herman is black?  No?  Well, he is ... so I expect you'll be voting for him ... unless you're a racist nazi.

UPDATE: Within a day or two me me posting this Sarah announced she would not be a candidate.  I wonder if she also said she wouldn't consider VP if asked.

I am right with you on Cain, and for the same reason and a few more.
