Palin Set For White House Run In 2012

Whatever the result of November's Presidential race, Alaska Governor Sarah Palin won't be leaving the big stage any time soon.

I've learned that Republican party officials in Alaska, as well as those at the Republican National Committee, have big plans for Palin.

That revelation came to light when I traveled to Alaska with The Master Baiter. We spent a few days with his friends who are well connected in the party and were able to provide me with unprecedented access.

GOP officials have become so enamored with Palin during the McCain campaign that she will be running for a spot at the top of the ticket in 2012. That will be the case, whether she runs as the sitting Vice President or as a Senator from Alaska.

Republican officials would not comment on the possibility of Palin running as the sitting President should McCain win and then die in office. Although it was acknowledged that the chance of that happening range from 10-20 percent.

If McCain wins, Palin will be showcased in assignments that appeal to the party base.

Should McCain lose, Palin will return to Alaska and prepare to run for a seat in the United States Senate.

While in an abbreviated form, given that she will be the sitting governor and that Alaska has a much smaller population than New York, Palin is likely to conduct a "listening tour" as Hillary Clinton did prior to her Senate bid.

Palin would be due to run for the Governor's office again in 2009. Alaska's junior United States Senator Lisa Murkowski is also set to be on the campaign trail.

Party officials in Alaska see Palin running for the United States Senate while Murkowski sets her sights on the governor's mansion.

Palin's true colors are coming to light. It is scary.

It never surprises me when there are stupid people out there, but to actually STILL have sights for her in years to some is beyond stupid.

I LOVE PALIN! I think she is freaking awesome! I saw a really cute sign that I put on my myspace page and it says, "sarah palin, smart, beautiful, conservative, that makes two of us!" I happen to agree with her on almost every issue! I guess that isn't so popular to say in the liberal "blogworld," but I am entitled to my opinion. She is an inspiration to me, I hope we get a strong, conservative woman president in my life time! It has to be hard to be a conservative running for office when almost every single media network is liberal and against you!

Hey Kilry,

As you can imagine, I've got maybe a little different perspective on Gov. Palin, since Tumblemoose lives in Alaska and all.

Thanks for keeping vitriolic hatred out of the post, not many folks have the self control to do that these days.

I find her rather scary but there again I find all gun packing, right wing types scary as I grew up with the same type in the old Apartheid South Africa.

Beautiful, beautiful country, thanks for the photos. The only places in North America I ever wanted to visit have always been Alaska and British Columbia. Haven't got there yet but who knows ?

With the media and public experiencing Britney Spears fatigue, Sarah Palin fills the 'attention whore' vacuum in the news cycle.

I see very little difference in the media fascination or for that matter the personalities of Sarah Palin and Britney Spears.

Palin and Spears both possess that dynamic combination of overt sexuality and fallen angel vibe that men can't help but want to rescue.

Palin and Spears are compelling because with each appearance there's a high probability they will publicly humiliate themselves.

Palin and Spears are both completely reckless and unapologetic. They both splay their sexuality inappropriately. Palin winking during debate was the equivalent of Spears being photographed sans underpants.

The Princess myth was shattered for Britney Spears after too many repeat offences and her subsequent hospitalization.

Sarah Palin's Princess myth will be shattered by further exposure of her unabashed lust for power and outspoken imbecilic fundamentalism and extremely divisive assertions.

I just don't think I'd be voting for her...

I don't think she's ready now...Maybe by 2012, she will be...

However, I think Obama's in for the next 8 yrs. Did you see the wide-eyes and the camaraderie at the victory party?

The United States will be in love with Obama and his family as they did with JFK and his fam...

P.S. Awesome photos Kilroy!

Excellent post!!!! The pictures are awesome and your views are nice, courteous, and I am happy you won your bets. I think America is ready for change and I hope that all the campaign promises that were made will be kept and that there will be change. But the change...well it cannot only fall on our president...we as Americans have to do our part to. I plan to do my part to the best of my ability. Have a great time celebrating and enjoy your few days off.

If Palin runs for President in 2012, at least she has name recognition going for her... but, at this point, that may not work in her favor
