GUEST,John BS: Palin's current thread (280* d) RE: BS: Palin's current thread 12 Jun 10

This isn't the first time I have said this on Mudcat so most of you are probably tired of hearing it.

Sarah Palin is not running for President.

Maybe, sometime, if...

Right now she is getting lots of press, drawing big crowds and supporting ideas and candidates that appeal to her. This is politics and she is a big-time player.

Her ideas are simple, but they aren't stupid. Some Mudcatters have the habit of getting their Palin quotes from her bitterest critics and consequently don't see the danger.

She is active, focused and effective at what she is doing now. Which is building a constituency for her views.

If we continue to focus on a distant and probably mythical Presidential run (her Presidential credentials are weak), we miss the damage that she is doing to progressive consensus right now.

She is no joke, and nobody who takes a hard look at the extent to which she (others too, but she is the most active outside of Congress) has fought the current administration to a near standstill would treat her as one.

She is very dangerous. Not in 2012. In 2010.
