I’ve come to realize that it’s pathetic for me to to hope that Sarah Palin or Michele Bachmann will get into the Republican primary. My support for anything that pisses off David Brooks is no better than conservatives’ support or anything that pisses off liberals. Anyway, I suspect that Steve M. has it right on Palin ’12:
If I had to guess, I’d say she’s never going to announce a run, she’s never going to announce that she’s not going to run, she’s going to threaten to jump into the race until the last conceivable second, and even then she’s going to threaten to declare herself a candidate at a brokered convention as long as the race is in flux. Oh, and she’ll also never declare herself a third-party candidate, but she’ll never stop floating rumors that she might become one.
