I have to say, I have been enjoying this whole little high school drama between Palin and the GOP Fundraising Dinner. And Palin stealing Newt's speech (seriously, word for word. The sheer balls of that act! Wow!)
Apparently the self-styled Evita is getting on the nerves of the GOP as much as she gets on the nerves of the rest of us. As it is becoming more and more apparent to the GOP leadership that Palin is serious about a run for the presidency in 2012, they are becoming more and more uncomfortable with the idea of this woman being the voice of their party. When Newt is the lesser of two evils, you know that other choice was pretty freaking bad.
The Hill has an interesting piece on just how much the GOP seems to be regretting bringing Palin into the spotlight. While part of the GOP base wants her to run it looks like they have written her off. She just doesn't have the money and her PAC has stalled.
I can't decide if I would like to see her run or not. Obviously, I would have a LOT more to talk about if she did. The woman is a trainwreck. And Obama would win handily if they ran her. He'd have to kill and eat a puppy on camera to lose. On the other hand, she does pander to the lowest scum in the GOP, and if we get them going again god only know what they will do next.
