Palin Has, Like, A Good Point on Deficits

Now that Sarah Palin is safely back in Alaska, I can’t help but love her, just a little.

The bad news for Republicans is that Palin thinks she might actually run for President some day:

I’m like, OK, God, if there is an open door for me somewhere, this is what I always pray, I’m like, don’t let me miss the open door. And if there is an open door in ’12 or four years later, and if it is something that is going to be good for my family, for my state, for my nation, an opportunity for me, then I’ll plow through that door.

Please — enough with the plowing.

Palin did manage to point to a real failing of the Bush administration:

I think the Republican ticket represented too much of the status quo, too much of what had gone on in these last eight years, that Americans were kind of shaking their heads like going, wait a minute, how did we run up a $10 trillion debt in a Republican administration?

Her figure is correct, though of course we only reached that marker under Bush, who had a bit of help.

But I’m like, okay, at least the debt is still less than the GDP! I’m sure Our Savior Barack Obama will be more than happy to plow through that door.

  1. Ari,
    I hope Palin will not run in 2012. i want Bobby Jindal to run.

    what do you think of the idea that Obama will bring intellectualism and competence to the white house? Someone on NoodleFood is insisting that he will do it. just wondering what you think about this. I am impressed with Obama as an inspirational speaker and demagogue, not someone who is principled, intellectual, or who values intellectualism. I also have not seen evidence of competence outside of his campaign, because he hasn’t done that much. he’s been a legislator for a fairly short period of time.
