While a roomful of people at Ronald Reagan's library were begging Chris Christie to run for president last night, Sarah Palin was making a whole new fool of herself on Fox News! Why would she needs a "title," like president, she explained. Wouldn't that prevent her from being completely irresponsible at all times, which is her... charm?
This is one of the best Sarah Palin interviews. Easily in the top 60.
After a few minutes of mumbling about the rest of the field, especially "Herb Cain," Palin muses on her own fake-consideration of a presidential candidacy with this inward-looking monologue:
"Through my process of decision-making with my family and my close friends as to whether I should throw my name in the hat for the GOP nomination for 2012 – Is a title worth it? Does a title shackle a person?" Palin said Tuesday night on the Fox News show "On the Record."
"Someone like me who's a maverick? I do go rogue and I call it like I see it and I don't mind stirring it up in order to get people to think and debate aggressively to find solutions to the problems that our country is facing," Palin continued.
"Somebody like me, is a title and a campaign too shackling? Does that prohibit me from being out there and out of a box, not allowing handlers to shape me and to force my message to be what's going on, or what contributors or political pundits want it to be?" Palin said.
"Somebody like me, is a title and a campaign too shackling?" It's slavery, no question, when you have to do something full-time.
