I can't believe I'm blogging about something even less consequential than the Jon Huntsman candidacy.
The Palin Fan Dance continues as her speech in Iowa in late September was in doubt for a few minutes when Christine O'Donnell managed to get on the event roster by overstating her relationship with Palin to event organizers.
There is so much wrong with all of this that it's hard to know where to start. Sarah Palin and her hard-to-get act is as ridiculous on the one hand as Christine O'Donnell's Conservative Roundheels is on the other. When SP enters the race, if she does, she'll share "Least Serious Candidate" honors with Newt Gingrich. "Least Viable" go to Jon Huntsman, with Palin, Gingrich, Cain and Santorum as honorable mentions.
Palin has the advantage of an avid fan base. But, ironically, its collective mentality is similar to that of the Delaware Tea Party that nominated Christine O'Donnell. Palin will bring a lot of drama to the nomination process, will attract a lot of criticism, which will be less unwarranted than it was in 2008, and she'll show everybody that she hasn't done her homework, again.
All of this assumes she's announcing her candidacy. My take is that she's now backed herself into a corner. She doesn't really have enough time to file, but she's been pooh-poohing the rush like a grasshopper sneering at the plodding ants. I don't think she'll risk disappointing her fan base, but who knows? Maybe common sense will prevail.
