My endorsement for the 2012 Republican Primary 2010-Jun-07 at 22:41 PDT

I know it’s way early for this, but I just wanted to get it out there for everyone to see who I’m supporting in the 2012 Republican Primary.  There’s really only one candidate that I’d like to see get this.

Gov. Sarah Palin.

That’s right… Gov. Sarah Palin.

Katie Couric: "What other Supreme Court decisions do you disagree with?"

Sarah Palin: "Well, let’s see. There’s –of course — in the great history of America rulings there have been rulings, there’s never going to be absolute consensus by every American. And there are — those issues, again, like Roe v Wade where I believe are best held on a state level and addressed there. So you know — going through the history of America, there would be others but—"

Couric: "Can you think of any?"

Palin: "Well, I could think of — of any again, that could be best dealt with on a more local level. Maybe I would take issue with. But you know, as mayor, and then as governor and even as a Vice President, if I’m so privileged to serve, wouldn’t be in a position of changing those things but in supporting the law of the land as it reads today."

Yes, that Sarah Palin.

Perhaps you’re wondering, “Scott, have you lost your mind?” Or maybe you’re thinking, “Scott, are you drunk?” or even “What the fuck is wrong with you?” but, really, if you think about it, I hope you’ll come to agree with me.

You see, a Sarah Palin vs. Barack Obama election in 2012 would be an absolute trouncing.  She simply can’t handle that level of pressure and that level of scrutiny.  My only hope, of course, is that somehow she convinces enough conservatives and Tea Partiers that it’s the right thing to do to nominate her in the first place.  Once that happens, in the General Election… Obama is going to walk all over her.  I can only hope this happens, because I’ll be there with popcorn watching the Obama-Palin debates, followed by the Saturday Night Live re-enactment of the Obama-Palin debates.

You know that would be awesome.

So, if you believe as I do, that President Obama is amazingly smart and balanced and has been doing an incredible (not perfect, but incredible) job through crisis after crisis, I hope you’ll join me on the Palin for Republican Nomination bandwagon.

Scott, I’ve thought the exact same thing. I’ve been saying how I wish Palin would win and go up against our President, because the rest of the country who is currently so blinded by the ridiculous nonsense of the GOP could really see how crazy Palin really is.
