It was summer of 2008, and I swear I was minding my own business. The news item on my computer screen said that John McCain had just picked Alaska governor Sarah Palin as his running mate. That’s the instant I knew.
It was game over. The next president of the United States was going to be Barack Obama. Thank you, Sarah.
I have mentioned before that Sarah Palin recently considered running for the presidential nomination and quickly sank out of sight, ignored roundly by Republicans who need to live in the real world. I was wondering what she might do to get even with Republican voters. Today I learned. From the Associated Press:
Palin backs Gingrich, leaves door open for herself
Hot dog! She’s going to stick it to Gingrich. I swear it could not happen to a nicer guy.
