For some reason, I don’t think Palin is going to run for POTUS in 2012 or anytime in the next 12 years. I’m starting to think her strategy is to act as decoy and let the Liberal spend all their time and energy bashing her, so a new challenger will come up.
I’m probably wrong but I think the decoy strategy would seriously screw up the Liberal battle plan going into 2012. Like AGW, there are too many Liberals with too much energy invested in bashing Palin. You take Palin out of the equation by no running for anything, and those Liberals would be shell shocked and wouldn’t be able to mount any sort of attack on any potential candidate.
Just a thought.
I should mention that Liberal and Conservative are inter changeable. There are tons of Conservatives whose only plan is to attack Palin (Andrew Sullivan). Take away Palin and they wouldn’t know what to do either.
