Sarah Palin impressed everyone on the right when she was picked to be the vice-presidential running mate to John McCain. However, that was three years ago. Since then the lady with the pretty legs has abdicated the governorship of Alaska, gone on speaking tours, written books, and supported conservative candidates wherever she could.
Sarah Palin is an ordinary citizen who rose to impressive heights in the political world. However, she allowed herself to be hounded out of the Alaska governor's chair by ruthless leftists who abused Alaskan laws to persecute her with bogus claims of unlawful and illegal breaches of ethics. Even though the dozen or so complaints were all defeated in court, defending against them became a full time job that incurred heavy expenses. After her legal fees exceeded half a million dollars, Palin threw in the towel and resigned. This was not a show of strength and the resignation effectively punctured her image as one tough grizzly bear mama. Although I didn't immediately recognize it as such, this is the one act that seriously undermined my confidence in Palin for higher office. Like a burr under a saddle, it chafed a bit, almost unnoticed, until finally the irritation could no longer be denied. Sarah, I love you, but you haven't begun to convince me that you have a political future of any note. If you couldn't withstand the pressures of the governor's chair, why should I believe you can withstand the ever greater pressures of the oval office? If you are going to persuade me otherwise, I need to hear from you sooner rather than later.
Now sexy Sarah is motorcading about, giving speeches here and there, and making the world wonder if she will ever declare herself a presidential candidate for 2012. It's time for Sarah to stop the silly games and declare herself a candidate or a non-candidate. If it's the latter, she should then choose her favorite candidate and get to work supporting him or her. Her silence makes her seem indecisive and uncommitted to the task of getting elected.
