Palin is ‘Seriously Interested’ in Presidential Run

Palin is ‘Seriously Interested’ in Presidential Run January 26, 2015

Stop me if you’ve heard this one before. Sarah Palin says she is seriously considering running for president in 2016. Why are you laughing? Stop laughing! You must be one of those liberal atheist Kenyan Muslim gay terrorists to be laughing at Sarah Palin!

Former Alaska governor Sarah Palin told The Washington Post in an interview Friday that she is “seriously interested” in running for the White House in 2016.

“You can absolutely say that I am seriously interested,” Palin said, when asked to clarify her thinking about a possible presidential bid.

Palin, the GOP’s 2008 vice-presidential nominee, said she stood by comments she made Thursday in Las Vegas to ABC News, where she first expressed enthusiasm about potentially competing for the Republican presidential nomination.

“I am. As I said yesterday, I’m really interested in the opportunity to serve at some point,” Palin said Friday, as former Pennsylvania senator Rick Santorum, a potential 2016 rival, looked on…

Palin said, “It is a significant step, of course, for anyone to publicly announce that they’re interested. Who wouldn’t be interested? Who wouldn’t be interested when they have been blessed with opportunities to speak about what is important to this country and for this country?”

Repeat after me: Sarah Palin will never, ever run for any office again. Running for office is work. Hard work. As long as she can con the rubes into paying her $50,000 (or more) to spin a word salad behind a podium or watch her latest dumbass reality show, she’s not going to go anywhere near an actual job.
