Palin Signals She May Run for President

Another tease? An effort to pump up ratings for her new TV show? Or is Palin seriously thinking of running this time?

I think she’s serious, at least at this point, but that’s just a hunch. Here’s why I think so.

In an appearance on Inside Edition last night, she sent out several unmistakable signals.

First, the most obvious piece of evidence, the obligatory, pre-presidential candidacy It’s not about me, but if enough people want me statement:

I think if anyone is asked by enough people, if enough people have that faith in you that you’re willing and able to put your country on the right path, I think that person should absolutely consider it and make sure it’s good with family.

Second, Todd’s on board, and he’s bashing the media, which is good GOP primary stuff:

Todd Palin: She would win hands down in my mind if the media did their job and presented each candidate on experience and on their policy and their ideas, but that’s not the way it’s set up today.

Inside Edition: Do you want her to run?

Todd: I mean, if she wants to, I will be behind her.

But most tellingly, Palin questioned the honesty of the man who is currently leading the field, Chris Christie, suggesting it’s unlikely he didn’t know what his aides were up to when they screwed up traffic on the George Washington Bridge. Christie has insisted he was out of the loop. Palin thinks that’s unlikely:

It’s hard to be the CEO of an organization and not know what the closest people to you are up to. It’s tough not to know. I know when I was Mayor and manager of this city, and then Governor of the state, certainly you know what your top aides are up to.”

I just want to make sure that every politician, everyone who’s elected, who’s given that honor and that sacred honor of a vote, people’s trust, that we don’t blow it. And you blow it if you ever try to hide anything. Whatever’s hidden, eventually light shines upon it. I just hope that truth is being told right now.

I thought it was interesting that she would hit Christie so hard. That’s not something she needed to do unless . . .

And then finally, there’s her new show “Amazing America,” which debuts on the Sportsman Channel April 3rd.

According to the Sportsman Channel, the show will take her all over the country to celebrate America, and not just to places where people hunt:

Amazing America with Sarah Palin is an anthology of stories that explore some of the most original, interesting – and sometimes inspiring – people, places and pastimes connected to America’s outdoors lifestyle. Governor Palin takes viewers coast-to-coast into what Sportsman Channel calls “Red, Wild and Blue America” – where the American Spirit and the Great Outdoors are celebrated in equal measure.

From everyday people to business leaders and celebrities; in cities, suburbs and towns; the leader of the “Status Go” movement – Palin – will find the stories of people and places that share and reflect her passion for what makes America the great, amazing nation that it is.

Wondering if she’ll be finding a particularly large number of original, interesting – and sometimes inspiring people in Iowa, New Hampshire, and South Carolina.

Here’s some video from Inside Edition. She just turned 50 Tuesday, and she looks and sounds great. Stay tuned.

Palin Won’t Support Any Politician Who Backs the Gun Bill

In a post on her Facebook page today, Sarah Palin said she will refuse to support any politician who backs the gun control bill.

Please see the link below for why the latest gun control bill should be filibustered and defeated. I can not and will not support politicians who support any more limits on our Second Amendment rights.

The link takes readers to a two-page summary detailing her opposition to the bill.

The reference to “politician” suggests that she will withhold support not just from Senators who are about to vote on the gun control bill, but from anyone – whether they are a member of the Senate or House, a state politician, or future presidential candidate – who supports further gun control efforts.

For a politician, having Palin stump for you is not quite the boon it once was, as her brand has faded somewhat.

Nevertheless, with some Republicans senators and House members sure to face primary challenges, having Palin enter the fray on behalf of their opponent should still send a few chills down their spines. Her support remains the clearest possible signal that you have the blessing of the Tea Party, and her opposition, that you do not.
