Palin in 2012? Lots of chatter about this. My guess/prediction at this point FWIW (= not much) is: nope. Her only hope was that her initial shock and awe campaign based on looks, lies and viciousness would cloud the facts long enough for her to get elected. But, as it turns out, her ignorance and mendacity couldn't be concealed even for two months. The real wackos love her, but she's dead to the center. My guess: she'll end up with...oh...something like a Limbaughesque talk show. The right absolutely cannot resist an allegedly hot woman who's conservative--Malkin, Ingraham, Coulter. Though on the radio they wouldn't be able to see her, so that's a disad. Eventually her tortured syntax might wear on listeners...but maybe they'll just continue to think it's "folksy." Limbaugh is a complete moron and they never seem to get tired of listening to him...though he's fairly glib I suppose in his own disgusting way. Maybe Fox News will give her an opportunity to go back to being a talking head. That's probably what she's cut out for. Maybe she'll get her own O'Reillyesque show. But I can't see her being the GOP candidate in 2012...or ever.

WS, you have more faith in the GOP than I do. To win the nomination, the base is most important, and they are poised to move even further to the right, as they blame McCain's "moderation" for his apparent impending doom.

In any case, 2012 should be hair-pulling fun with Huckabee, Romney, and Palin in the running. We'll hear a lot of godsmack.
