So, Palin Thinks She Can Dance With President Obama…

Sarah Palin says that she thinks she can beat President Obama in the 2012 election.  As much as I would like to say that this would be an impossible feat, Palin cannot be dismissed…    

Here are some reasons why Palin might be able to pull off the election:

She’s popular

Whether or not you like her politics , you must admit that everyone knows her name (The theme from Cheers is playing in my head).

She is one hot Momma Grizzly. 

Going along with popularity, Palin is very visible.

 She does have a successful book and reality television show.  And, we can’t forget about the buzz–ala Dancing With The Stars— that has been caused by her daughter, Bristol- the- Pistol- Palin.

She did rally behind those ever faithful Tea Party people; they’re loyal to a fault.

She’s personably folksy.

She appeals to the self-proclaimed, ultra moralistic crowd.

(Remember how the evangelical vote helped to push G.W. Bush into the winners circle).

She might be boning up on her history in order to appear more well versed during future debates and interviews.

She could win the “history making” vote.

 It’s possible that some people will vote for her simply because of her female status.    

Personally, I don’t dislike Palin as a person.  But,I just don’t think she has the interest of common folk in mind–as is the case with many Repubs and Tea Partiers.  I just hope and pray that Palin won’t run in the first place.  Then again, I could use some of Tina Fey’s brilliant comedy.
