Then you flew your Lear jet up to Nova Scotia

Stuff like this (via) is why I think Palin is Giuliani 2, Electric Boogaloo:

Among other perks, Palin will fly first class – if she flies commercial. If not, “the private aircraft MUST BE a Lear 60 or larger …,” the contract specifies. She also must be provided with a suite and two single rooms in a deluxe hotel.

Chris Bowers makes a good case that Palin has a good chance in 2012, but plenty of people were saying the same about Giuliani in 2008 (here, for example, though FSM knows I am not trying to compare Bowers, whom I like, to Kaus or Morris).

Lazy, spoiled divas do not do well in presidential elections, no matter how much airtime they get.

    I don’t think she even wants to be President. The only reason she runs is if somehow she thinks it will increase her appearance fees.

    The crazy thing though is that if the economy is still this bad in two years, I think she could win the Presidential election.

    she has zero chance because she has zero interest in runnnig for a job so hard that pays so little. Plus, “running” may be harder than the job and it pays even less. There is no effing way that grifter runs for President. She will wanna be a king maker, but not the proverbial king.

    Just remember how little stumping she did the last go round and then think about how little she did face-to-face with reporters and the times she them, she, um, let’s say, did not do all that well.

    I don’t care if the numbers said she had a 60% chance of winning, she will never give up the gig she has.

    I don’t think she’s interested in running, just giving off the perception that she is so she can keep her fees high.

    http://thefastertimes.com/tops.....p-stories/

    I think it’s clear that she has no interest in actually running for anything. Someone who is prepping for a presidential run doesn’t go out and get a reality show where her every move and word will be recorded. She’s already proven that she has no interest in governing. The campaign with McCain was incredibly difficult for her personally and if we know one thing about Sarah it’s that difficult doesn’t suit her. She took the first opportunity to quit and cash in on her celebrity status. Everything she’s done since leaving office is calculated to either make her money or to insert her name in the news cycle – so she can make more money.

    Typically politicians setup PACs in order to dole out money to like minded candidates and thereby build political capital for a future campaign. Palin has her SarahPAC but has been loathe to actually dish out any money and has actually spent more money buying up copies of Palin’s book than on candidates. Presenting an image as a potential candidate keeps her name in the news and her fees high but it’s all for show, she’s not going to run.

    It’s like Palin is turing out to be everything that the Rebuplicans are trying to make Hillary Clinton out to be.

    (Remember that wierd flap about Clinton having to send back a private plane during the primary campaign becuase it didn’t have enough seats.)

    You know, as a speaker Palin has the right to ask for stuff like this in her contract… but how the heck can she front herself as a “regular-ole Real American” with this sort of elitism?

    The key item is that Palin would have to do hard, grinding work for about 22 months to have a chance of being president. This flies in the face of what we know about Ms. P. She hasn’t even been a national figure for 22 months, and look at what’s happened already.

    “Palin has a good chance in 2012.”

    No she doesn’t.

    I know that folks continue to like to talk about this, and I know that there are some among us (not us, of course, out there) who love her with the firey love of a thousand suns — but she will not be nominated.

    The Republicans ran a field of Crazy and Crazier up to their last convention — and they chose the one guy who was nominally sane. As I knew (ahem) they would.

    She will not be nominated because

    a) she is not even within shouting distance of qualified
    b) not enough people like her as President, not even on her own side,
    c) she has more skeletons in her closet than a cannibal,
    d) to quote someone very wise, “lazy, spoiled divas do not do well in presidential elections,” and
    e) she would be TROUNCED in the generals.

    The GOP knows this. They will use her to stir up their own base and piss us off (as well as misdirecting our attention, a thing at which they excel), and then they will pick someone nominally sane.

    I have my doubts that she really wants to run, but let’s say that she does. I agree with the lot of you that says she has no chance to win the GOP nomination. The only problem is that I don’t think any of the clowns in this thing have a chance to win it, and someone has to.

    Mitt Romney has no chance because he imposed a soshulist health care system in MA.

    Tim Pawlenty has no chance because that combination of Minnesota earnestness and bat shit crazy manages to alienate everyone who isn’t a crazy nutbar from Minnesota. I suppose he could win the Dakotas and Wisconsin, too.

    Newt Gingrich has no chance because, let’s face it, he’s Newt Gingrich.

    jrg says:

    If she runs, she will get eaten alive in the primaries. The only reason she still seems somewhat viable is because she did not have to run in the primaries for the 2008 election. Obama ignored her, for the most part – Romney, et. al. won’t give her that opportunity.

    Besides, everyone has a strong opinion on her already. Her poll numbers are not that good, and are relatively static (trending down slightly IIRC). None of this works in her favor, particularly since a big part of her appeal is “boob bait for bubba”, and she ain’t getting any younger.

    The story here isn’t Palin or the perks she demands, that’s old news.

    The story is that the chancellor of CSU Stanislaus is also the chairman of the school foundation with offices housed in the administration building. The reason these details came to light is because of State Senator Leland Yee who for more than three years now has been calling for much stricter and accurate oversight of the UC and CSU systems.

    The chancellor paid for Palin’s speaking fees and travel arrangements with tax payer money that is hidden among the “Stanislaus Foundation” paperwork. Two journalism students staked out the admin building and found shredded documents that were specifically requested by Yee and the AG, as well as documents that were overlooked and not shredded.

    Anyway, factcheck.org has a good rundown on this nonsense, and their review includes this:

    Spokespeople for Pelosi and Andrews Air Force Base say that the speaker has used the big Air Force jet once, but she normally uses a much smaller plane, the same one used by the previous speaker of the House, Republican Dennis Hastert.

    That was as of a year ago, two full years into the circulation of the phony stories about her use of the larger plane, which she never requested in the first place but was in fact requested by security officials.

    I don’t think she’ll win unless there’s some sort of freak turn of events where it doesn’t look like the Republicans are going to win, so there’s less pressure for a credible candidate like Romney to secure the nomination, but where that changes in the last few months. In other words, if it’s October, and a terrorist attack happens, she could slip through.

    But if it looks like Obama is extremely vulnerable, my guess is that there are enough people in the Republican party who are terrified at the thought of a dolt like Palin being in power that they will do whatever it takes to get someone who is actually competent to be the nominee.

    During a conversation with the College of New Jersey’s student publication, the Perspective, Huckabee reiterated his support for an Arkansas law that would ban same-sex couples from adopting children. “I think this is not about trying to create statements for people who want to change the basic fundamental definitions of family,” Huckabee, a Southern Baptist minister, said. “Children are not puppies,” he continued. “This is not a time to see if we can experiment and find out, how does this work?”
    __
    “You don’t go ahead and accommodate every behavioral pattern that is against the ideal,” Huckabee said when asked about same-sex marriage. “That would be like saying, well, there are a lot of people who like to use drugs, so let’s go ahead and accommodate those who want who use drugs. There are some people who believe in incest, so we should accommodate them. There are people who believe in polygamy, so we should accommodate them.”

    If that is his definition of laying low, by all means, keep it coming, Huck.

As Sully has endlessly pointed out, no prominent politician in history has dodged the media like she has.

    First of all, the difference between Giuliani and Palin (aside from genitalia and about 40 IQ points) is that Giuliani had followers whereas Palin has cultists.

He’s not, but he can choose to appear that way especially when there’s an abject moron standing next to him. Also, Huckabee is capable of projecting warmth and likability, and I can’t think of any other prominent Republican who doesn’t give the impression of wanting to eat someone’s liver with fava beans and a nice chianti.

    Palin? Not so much. She doesn’t have the background, she doesn’t have the experience, and she doesn’t have the family connections in Washington that come with being the son of a president and the grandson of a senator. She will fall flat on her face no matter how hard they try to prop her up.

    Look here, Mr. Troll, you are wrong.

    There, all done. No one else need respond to him!

    Is there anything in that contract that says no brown M&M’s in her green room?

    I live in MN. The last serious poll had Obama trouncing Pawlenty in this state. I don’t want to be mean about it, but he is so not ready for prime time.

    I agree that her real ambitions are money and fame with no interest in or talent in governing, but I think she might be the candidate precisely because she’ll be like W. She pleases the base while an army of neo-cons actually run things in the background. Gee, maybe Cheney could be vice-president again.

    At least Van Halen had a good reason for that — the “no brown M&M’s” clause was inserted into the middle of a bunch of technical requirements for what the venue had to be like in order to support the concert’s equipment needs. David Lee Roth talked about one concert where the promoters left lots of brown M&M’s in the bowl. They didn’t read the contract’s clauses pertaining to how much weight the venue’s floor needed to be able to support either, the end result being that the weight of the stage inflicted $85,000 worth of damage to the venue’s brand new floor.

    Well, we know that the She-Beast Liz Cheney wants to run for some office.
