For those political junkies that were looking to see an end to the long, painful GOP primary season, look out. I got a bit of Sarah on Fox’s new show called “The Five” when she joined the group for some small talk, even sitting next to everybody’s favorite snarky liberal Bob Beckel. She had already taped an interview with Eric Bolling which aired last night on the Fox Business Channel, and now thanks to the folks at Mediaite, we have the video of that interview.
Bolling could not help but ask what Palin was thinking of doing with her future. She answered that she was reading to help America any way she could, and if it meant “running for office at some point in the future, I’m game.” “Want to elaborate on that?” Bolling asked, getting a flat “No!”
The bottom line appears to be she is willing to run if drafted but until then she will just continue to hit the stump and keep the candidates focused on what the real issue is: getting Obama out of office in November.
Lately the candidates seem to have lost sight of that and the campaign has devolved into a series of he said-she said slap fights among the candidates while the electorate keeps going off on tangents chasing the latest outrage of the day.
I thought the dust would settle after Super Tuesday on March 6, but it appears it won’t.
Oh, one other thing. Romney, you really need to reign in that Super PAC, Restore Our Future, that is running commercials for you in Georgia. It is an anti-Gingrich ad as opposed to the anti-Santorum ad they are running elsewhere. The local news has already done their own checking of the claims made and their results are 2 out of 3 of the claims made are false. This isn’t some sort of Politifact hit job, but rather local reporters who checked the claims. The only thing they got right was the fact that Newt and Nancy once shared a couch together. Newt is by no means a cinch to win the state, but folks around here react pretty defensively when you start to attack one of their favorite sons like this.
