Obviously this is Bill Kristol’s “Baby, please don’t go. I’ll change. I know I can change” plea to me to stick around:

Cancelled reality show contestant Sarah Palin, who once did something of note but we can’t seem to remember what it was- was it a sex tape with Ray J? Yeah, that was probably it: a sex tape – is out of rehab and babbling about how she might kinda sorta possibly it-could-totally-happen consider running for office again, because, fuck it, why not?

How and why evangelicals persist, what motivates their zealotry and what they would do with power if they got it—these are the “What-ifs” Frederic C. Rich asks through his characters and a counterfactual storyline that takes readers from a key historical tipping point—the election and subsequent death of John McCain in 2008—through plausible plot twists and fictional conflicts that remain deeply rooted in the very real people, politics and ideologies that even today are significant forces in American life.

Each time the stage mothers of the Republican Party push another child star out into the footlights, we find, yet again, that the children of Lake GOP are quite uniformly, below average. Although this goes back to Reagan; the idea of casting affable meat puppets for the role of “President” to cynically sell the evergreen policies of the plutocracy to the unsuspecting rabble, the talent pool has gotten pretty laughably shallow. And not for nothing.

It was spring break all over America. It was SXSW in Austin. It was CPAC time in Washington, D.C.
While I was listening in Austin to Emmylou Harris and Rodney Crowell, CPAC attendees were complaining about life as beleaguered white people. Oh the prejudice they most overcome, and they will one day.
The cultures of SXSW and CPAC are so radically different that it’s a stretch to remember they are taking place in the same country or even on the same planet.

To be fair, the people who gave to Sarah PAC knew she was a fame whore before she fucked them, so it’s all good….

The announcements at the end of last week, broken first at Malia Litman’s blog, that Sarah Palin would not be renewing her contract with FOX News, didn’t surprise many. It certainly didn’t surprise me.
It did drive Palin back into the news for a few brief hours, though. She even made it to the top of Twitter for about six hours. It may be the last time she’s able to do that.

Granny Grifter is well past her freshness date and Fox News gives her the Naughty Monkey boot.

So now that we have one of the most conservative major parties ever to present a presidential nominee, running on one of the most conservative platforms ever presented by a national party, that nominee, Mitt Romney, is in danger of failing.

To people here in Missouri, Akin’s comments were not terribly surprising. Akin is a known commodity — known to be highly conservative and well in keeping with a non-trivial slice of the Missouri electorate.
Like Br’er Rabbit telling Br’er Fox not to throw him in the briar patch, Claire McCaskill ran ads on Fox News during the GOP primary fight, calling Akin “too conservative for Missouri”. With an endorsement like that, conservatives in the GOP primary race were happy to hand Akin a victory with 36% of the vote.
