Hill Buzz brings to my attention a curious fact about Sarah Palin. She has not announced for President. Instead she is taking a summer vacation. Touring America. Starting in Washington, DC.
Today, Sarah Palin announced a bus tour called The One Nation Tour, organizedAs I said at She's In, Palin is running. And you know what? Her fans are even more fanatical than Ron Paul's. And she has something very important for American politics as shown by the recent standing ovation Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu got in Congress the other day. She, unlike Ron Paul, loves Israel.
as a “soft launch” to her Presidential campaign that will allow her to test fundraising, messaging and audience response to her candidacy without the expense or paperwork of forming an exploratory committee or subjecting her prematurely to onerous McCain-Feingold (irony alert) campaign financing and reporting laws“to educate and energize Americans about our nation’s founding principles, in order to promote the Fundamental Restoration of America.”
That sound you just heard was Chris Matthew’s head exploding.
The second sound was a semi-conscious Mittens Romney impacting the chintz upholstery on his fainting couch.
We can’t tell you what that smell is, but it’s coming from the “opposition research” trolls in the basement of the White House.
Palin’s rockstar-style tourbus, decked out with traditional American iconography such as the Constitution and the Liberty Bell, will kick off the tour in Washington, D.C. and continue throughout historic sites in New England
The Jerusalem Post reports that Palin, the 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee, and her husband, Todd, met with Netanyahu and his wife, Sara, at their official residence in Jerusalem. Palin traveled to Israel after delivering a speech in India over the weekend.The interesting question for me is, will she pick
Gary Johnson as her VP to shore up her Libertarian creds in the same way McCain picked Palin for the same purpose? That would be very ironic. And DELICIOUS!
And Johnson can move some lefties to the right. Willie Nelson likes him. And so does High Times magazine.
There is a long way to go until August 2012 and things can change, but I'm liking the way things are shaping up so far.
