Conspiracy theory of the moment: People are giving Michelle Bachmann press in order to make Sarah Palin palatable in comparison.

I remember the election with Clinton/Bush/Perot. Perot appeared to be a whacked out little midget with insane ideas that were just crazy enough to pull a moderate number of votes away from Bush, guaranteeing Clinton's election. I think Palin is probably going to do the same thing to the Republican party again. I can really see her breaking off the Tea Party fanatics and taking just enough votes away to rip victory from the jaws of the actual Republican party. I thought Ron Paul would have done that in a previous election, but his common sense seemed to make the Republican Party a higher priority than his own personal popularity contest.

I doubt Sarah Palin has that same voice of reason. I'm looking forward to the train wreck of 2012. I think there will be some fun and interesting times to come.

I don't think Sarah Palin will run. She's in this for the same reason Donald Trump was in. She'll get all the publicity she can out of it then give some reason for not running that will garner even more demand for he next book or TV or radio gig.

I giggled at this LA Times piece...

“I believe that I can win a national election," Palin said while interviewed in Iowa, where she attended a screening of the film. "I’m not so egotistical as to believe that it has to be me, or it can only be me, to turn things around. But I do believe that I can win."
