A Few Things for Your Day
I have varied thoughts on varied matters this morning and have a busy day with some family stuff, so I’m just going to bullet point some issues here and the Morning Briefing can fill out most of the stuff. I merely quoted Sarah Palin on Friday. She told Jake Tapper the end of September was her drop dead date. I have never seen so much | Read More »

Maybe Stephanie McCrummen Just Likes Using the N Word
This is perhaps the most bizarre attack on Rick Perry to come so far. Hugh Hewtitt has a very good take down of it. It shows the extent to which the Democrats will go to attack Republicans. Stephanie McCrummen, a Washington Post based reporter formerly stationed in Nairobi has a history of fanning racial flames out of context. In a move that was genuinely supported | Read More »
“The President is giving the Republicans every opportunity to shine. But they are all so busy talking down the other guys in the field” I’ve been dwelling on this for a couple of weeks. Call it, if you will, the “Carville Rule” named for the consultant who came up with it (at least I’ll give James credit). It is simply that the most optimistic candidate | Read More »
I told you people she was not running
It is now October even in Alaska and Sarah Palin has not announced by her own deadline. I guess she could still do it this month. But if she can’t even keep to her own deadline and hasn’t really had a job for two years and could have made up her mind, why keep stringing us along. This hasn’t just become a joke, but a | Read More »
It’s 3am ET and 11pm in Alaska. No Palin Announcement
One more hour. I’m assuming we won’t stretch this out to the International Date Line.
It’s 2am ET and 10 pm in Alaska. Hasn’t happened.
The national suicide prevention hotline is 1-800-273-8255 in case anyone wants to keep it handy. I’m hoping we don’t have a Hale Bopp moment.
It is 1am ET and 9pm in Alaska. Still no announcement
And if she announces now, she’ll totally have missed the morning papers on the east coast.
It is 12:00 AM on October 1. But It’s Still September 30th in Alaska
That’s right. I’m just going to keep this going. Because it is still September 30th in Alaska.
It is 11pm. Still No Palin Announcement
It’s not us folks. It’s her. From MSNBC’s First Read on September 5th: After making speeches in both Iowa and New Hampshire, two early voting states, the question remains as the holiday weekend draws to a close, will she or won’t she? Sarah Palin has indicated her “drop dead” date for a possible presidential announcement is the end of September. And going all the way | Read More »
It is 10pm. Given their relationship, Greta would be the natural place to announce
But we know by know that it is not happening today. All day long the Palin supporters have been going absolutely nuts over this. They point out to the various inconsistent statements from Sarah Palin herself that would take a Palinologist to decipher. She said September would be the drop dead date. Now October. But wait, she didn’t say she would announce by the end | Read More »
It is 8pm. Maybe She’ll Do It On O’Reilly
Still hasn’t happened. I am reminded of this: Consider that of all the candidates, Sarah Palin has the least excuse for her dithering. Unlike Perry, Bachmann, and Paul, Palin hasn’t had a job with official duties for the last two-plus years. All the other quasi-retired or term-limited candidates have long ago declared. Even Jon Huntsman was serving as ambassador to China as recently as April; | Read More »
It’s 7pm. Guess What Hasn’t Happened?
I’d be on radio to talk about it, except I’m on child care duty with a sick wife. But Palin has still not announced.
