Palin should cut her losses and call it quits

Nick Silver

It appears former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin has failed to realize that she was the laughing stock of the 2008 presidential campaign.

Palin, in fact, in an interview with FOX News, said that she would consider running for president in 2012 if “it is the right thing to do for our country and for the Palin family.”

If Palin holds true to her word then she will not be taking a run at the presidency, as it would be the wrong thing for our country.
The same woman who, in an 2008 interview with Katie Couric, could not name a single Supreme Court case besides Roe v. Wade, thinks she is now well versed enough in politics to be a viable presidential candidate.

Palin said she has become “more astute” since the 2008 elections after receiving emails from experts on many different topical issues.

While it is good that Palin has recognized that the opinions of others are undoubtedly “more astute” than any ideas that crawl out of her own head, it still doesn’t make her any more qualified for president than the Google search engine.

Palin, who resigned from her duties as governor in 2009, said she was resigning to avoid becoming a “lame duck” governor after deciding to not seek reelection.
While knowing when to bow out of a losing cause can be a good thing, Palin was only taking the easy road out and should be labeled by what she truly is: a quitter.

A Palin presidential nomination would be the best thing to happen to the Democratic Party since she was named as Sen. John McCain’s running mate in 2008.
Independent voters, understandably displeased with the first year of President Obama’s term, would be left with no choice but to put their differences aside and support him in the 2012 election.

To avoid any more embarrassment, quitting is Palin’s best option when it comes to politics.

More importantly, if the Republican Party  wants to have any chance of reclaiming the presidency then they need to pull their heads out of their [explative deleted] and shut her down.
