Run, Sarah, Run

Today is Run, Sarah, Run day.

Starting today I (and anyone else who wants Sarah to run) will be posting this simple message to her in any way we can – blog, twitter, facebook, smoke signals, scribbles on the palms of our hands.

(Edit: I just realized there is a #RunSarahRun tag on twitter now. Use it!)

We start today and don’t quit until she’s in.

RUN, SARAH, RUN.

        Damn, already getting crap from my FB friends. People really really really hate the concept of voting for a woman. There is ALWAYS a “good” reason why THIS particular woman is not a good choice.

        Even if were Palin were batshit crazy, which she’s not, I’d still be happy to vote for her. Like Yttik said yesterday, let me know when Palin starts sending photos of her penis to random supporters and then I might be persuaded not to vote for her again.

        Vote for women!

    Run, Sarah, run!

    Yep, people are pretty resistant to the idea of a woman leading. According to one of my facebook friends, she’s going to revoke civil liberties and go to war in the middle east. Geesh, it’s a good thing we’re not engaged in any wars right now and that Obama didn’t order the execution of two US citizens.

    Are we too stupid to govern ourselves? Should somebody call up England and see if they’d like a slightly used, completely broke, country back?

    • votermom says:

      Palin is actually the only one out there who has articulated a clear non-interventionist foreign policy doctrine, except in the case of clearly defined US interests.
      http://www.sarahpac.com/posts/tribute-to-the-troops-with-governor-palin

      First, we should only commit our forces when clear and vital American interests are at stake. Period.

      Second, if we have to fight, we fight to win. To do that, we use overwhelming force. We only send our troops into war with the objective to defeat the enemy as quickly as possible. We do not stretch out our military with open-ended and ill-defined missions. Nation building is a nice idea in theory, but it is not the main purpose of our armed forces. We use our military to win wars.

      Third, we must have clearly defined goals and objectives before sending troops into harm’s way. If you can’t explain the mission to the American people clearly and concisely, then our sons and daughters should not be sent into battle. Period.

      Fourth, American soldiers must never be put under foreign command. We will fight side by side with our allies, but American soldiers must remain under the care and the command of American officers.

      Fifth, sending in our armed forces should be the last resort. We don’t go looking for dragons to slay. However, we will encourage the forces of freedom around the world who are sincerely fighting for the empowerment of the individual. When it makes sense, when it’s appropriate, we will provide them with material support to help them win their own freedom.

        They project so much crap onto her it’s ridiculous. Sarah is MUCH more libertarian than she is neo-con, but without the Ron Paul extremism.

        Anyone who kind of likes some of the points that Paul makes, but thinks he goes waaaay overboard with the slashing of govt and isolationism (which describes many liberals and moderates), should be all over Sarah.

        • ralphb says:

          Her foreign policy is the classic American stance from Jackson through Eisenhower. It served this country very well for a long time.

  5. murphy says:

    “She has a penis?”

    Exactly.

    We got a retweet from an abcnewsblogger.

    Not too sure how to use the hashtag# thingy, but I tried Votermom!

    Kathleen Kennedy Townsend agrees with Sarah Palin:

    http://www.theatlantic.com/national/archive/2011/10/why-i-agree-with-sarah-palin/246051/

    While I admire Sarah Palin for breaking ground as a woman candidate, we don’t agree on many policy issues. But her tirade in Iowa a few weeks ago against what she called “corporate crony capitalism” captured my attention. She said, “It’s not the capitalism of free men and free markets, of innovation and hard work and ethics, of sacrifice and of risk. No, this is the capitalism of connections and government bailouts and handouts and influence peddling and corporate welfare.”

    Good for Sarah Palin.

    Naturally she singled out President Obama, but, to her credit, she also took on her own party. Republican candidates “who raise mammoth amounts of cash,” she said, should be asked what their donors “expect in return for their investments.”

    😀

    • ralphb says:

      She really was pretty much a weasel in there anyway.

    • votermom says:

      Tsk. That might make the family Thanksgiving dinner a wee bit awkward.
      🙂

    • WMCB says:

      LMAO! I like this idea! From a commenter at HotAir:

      Here’s an idea… Let’s make a new tax that taxes 40% of all campaign money raised by any candidates with no “loop holes”.

      Obama, if you raise 1 billion, then you pay 400 million in taxes!

  9. ralphb says:

    RUN, SARAH, RUN! If this doesn’t work, I’m gonna donate a few bucks next.

    • votermom says:

      You might find this interesting. This is Palin’s known schedule for October:

      Fri. 10/7 Defending the Republic St louis, Mo
      Sat 10/8 Extroardinary Woman Lynchburg, Va
      Tues 10/11 World Knowledge Forum Seoul, Korea
      (Tues 10/18 Bristol’s birthday)
      Fri / Sat 10/21 / 10/22 Extroardinary woman, Tupelo, Ms

      No events after 10/22
      Deadline for filing NH 10/28 / Florida 10/31

      • ralphb says:

        That speech in Korea would be huge if she was an announced candidate, provided it could be open for US TV coverage.

        • votermom says:

          FWIW, her campaign for AK gov she announced on Alaska day which is also Bristol’s bday. She could be thinking it’s proven to be a lucky day in her life.
          (Just a thought)

        • ralphb says:

          I’ll take it. Any day is good so long as she runs!

    • catarina says:

      ralph-are you at a protest?

      PS Amazon is now shipping “Undefeated,” which I ordered to show support.

      But a donation is a good idea too.

      Is C4P a good place to do that?

    • gxm17 says:

      That’s great news. If Sarah doesn’t run, I’ll need someone to vote for. (And it won’t be Obama, Perry or Romney.)

    • votermom says:

      My biggest fear for Cain is that if he does become the anti-Romney, he will get “handled” — his staff will be the professional GOPers who do things the establishment way.
      I guess that’s one of his big tests as a candidate – will he be able to keep his voice as he plays with the big boys.

    Here’s a cupcake for ya Votermom:

  11. DeniseVB says:

    Good video using Obama’s words and simple graphs even I can understand. Run Sarah Run 😀

    • HELENK says:

      several great reasons why we need Sarah.
      Her state prospered under her
      Our states are going in to the toilet under backtrack

      unemployment needs to start in DC asap

  12. HELENK says:

    Chris Christi say no. will not run

  13. WMCB says:

    Breaking: House now calling for a special prosecutor to investigate whether Holder perjured himself over Fast and Furious.

  14. ralphb says:

    Chris Christie won’t run for president in 2012

    It’s Pathetico, so who knows.

    New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has decided against entering the race for president, likely ending once and for all the GOP establishment’s hope for a new candidate in the 2012 race.

    Christie has scheduled a 1 p.m. press conference in his state’s capital, where he’s expected to announce that he will not seek the presidency. Two sources said he has started informing people of his decision in advance of his Trenton press conference.
    (…)
    There is one more national Republican figure who has not clarified her 2012 intentions: Sarah Palin.

    But unlike Christie, Palin has no beachhead within the party. Two-thirds of Republicans said in an ABC News/Washington Post poll released Monday that they hope the former Alaska governor does not run.

    That “no beachhead in the party” is the best thing she has going for her. RUN, SARAH, RUN!

  15. Amarissa Prq says:

    Done! Posted RUN, SARAH, RUN in my tweeter & Sarah’s account,
    my Facebook & Sarah’s also. Let’s keep this up until she announces one way or the other!

    Pathetico cya story:

    Sarah Palin-affiliated law firm made early-state deadline inquiries
    Ken Vogel and I both have sources telling us that calls were made on behalf of a mystery candidate to various early states to determine presidential filing deadlines.

    The calls were made by representatives of the law firm Baker Hostetler – a firm that employs lawyer Mark Braden, who represents Sarah PAC, her political action committee.

    As Ken notes, while he nor representatives of Palin’s campaign would comment on the calls, Palin is the only GOP politician eying the presidential race who is represented by the firm.

    The current thinking in GOP election law circles is that the first hard cut-off for entering the race is Oct. 28, when presidential candidates who hope to appear on the ballot in the New Hampshire primary would be required to submit a filing fee from a federally registered presidential campaign committee.

    I think they are running this so they don’t look like complete idiots when she declares.

    Better poll news for Herman Cain from CBS. By the way, Undecided is the winner of the poll with 18% so RUN, SARAH, RUN!
