It was the biggest non-story of the year: Sarah Palin’s announcement that she was NOT running for president.
Was anybody surprised? It should have been clear to anybody that she wasn’t going to run for president. After all, she had no job, no campaign organization, and no team of campaign advisors.
Sarah Palin’s not a candidate. She’s a circus act. A tired, old circus act who’s about to disappear from the big ring.
After all, who cares what Sarah Palin says about anything anymore? Her contention that she will exercise more influence from the political sidelines is a joke. Not even Todd Palin believes that crap.
Let’s face it. She doesn’t even have a job, except for her lucrative contract with Fox News. And, to be kind, the former beauty queen who was a small-town mayor and governor for a year and a half has never given any signs of being an intellectual heavyweight.
Certainly, Rand Paul or other real Tea Party leaders don’t feel any compulsion to consult the Oracle of Wassila before they take a stand on raising the debt ceiling, or any other issue.
Sarah Palin’s fifteen minutes is over. Good!
That’s my parting shot for today.
