Two hours after I wrote today's "Will She or Won't She" blog post about Sarah Palin's possible presidential bid, the NY Times ran an article recounting Palin's radio announcement that she won't run.
Bad news - I spent an hour composing my thoughts and speculating about her decision.
Good news - The prognostications I made in my post were 100% accurate. I predicted that Palin would decide not to run, AND that she would use the "family comes first" fallback in her explanation.
From the Times..."In an e-mail she sent to her supporters, Ms. Palin said she had decided not to run out of respect for her family and the impact that a campaign would have on them."
Palin also reminded us of her beneficence by adding that she was also more free to battle the evils of the current administration if she were not gagged and bound by the behavioral limitations put on presidential candidates.
Good old Palin. Just like Mike Huckabee, family values and allegiance to country always come first. First in line, right behind personal gain and pocketbook. It appears there is simply more money to be made and a better life to be had out of politics for the presumed top tier Republican candidates who aren't already filthy rich.
If they weren't the party of unrestricted wealth and opportunity, I'd actually feel bad for them.
