Well, I guess that it’s official – Sarah Palin is not running for the Office of the President of the United States. For reasons that she doesn’t want to be “tied down”, and she needs to “say what she wants to say”. Well, shucks! That almost depresses me. Alright, I’ll be honest – not really.
You see, Sarah Palin is the prototype politician that I absolutely cannot stand. What else can you be where you serve your state for half a term, run for the Vice Presidency, and write novels; get a guest advertisement spot (that’s all she is, is advertisement), have your own reality television show, and hold an annoyed nation in the palm of your hand – “is she running or not?!” – what else can you be other than a celebrity?
Maybe Sarah realized that Americans got tired of her “don’t cha know” moments? Or quite possibly Americans just came to the conclusion that she has an IQ comparable to that of Forrest Gump.
Any which way it goes, I’m glad she’s not running.
