Joke of the Day: Palin Touted As 2012 Candidate

Yahoo has a story with a headline that asks "Is Sarah Palin preparing for 2012?" My first reaction was "If she's trying to build credibility for a presidential run, acting like an idiot is a funny way of doing that."

However, apparently a Palin run sounds like a great idea to some. Yahoo reports: Sarah Palin “has absolutely earned a right to run in 2012,” says Greg Mueller, who was a senior aide in the presidential campaigns of Pat Buchanan and Steve Forbes. Mueller says Palin has given conservatives “hope” and “something to believe in.”

Is this Greg Mueller guy serious? Anyone who thinks Palin has earned the right to run in 2012 is either an idiot or a person who has never seen her interviewed on television. Mr. Mueller's enthusiasm for Palin had me puzzled and confused. To the extent McCain is fading in the polls, it seems that Palin is the one who is dragging him down. Out of the four candidates (McCain, Obama, Biden and Palin), Palin is the only one with a negative approval rating. Even Republicans are saying she was a bad choice.

And then I realized that Greg Mueller was a senior aide to the presidential campaigns of Pat Buchanan and Steve Forbes. Steve Forbes? The only skill that dude seems to have is how to work as a senior advisor for the biggest loser running for president. Using that criteria, Mueller's pick of Palin seems quite appropriate.
