Oh, not really.

I really really really hope she runs.

Edited to add: In fact, I'm curious as to what her fans are planning to do to make it happen? Volunteering on the campaign? Sending her (via SarahPAC) or the RNC money? She's gonna need all that help and it's probably a great use of your funds to support her.

Reagan had some things that Palin lacks - the ability to read and write, intelligence, and the charm to carry on thoughtful conversations his political opponents.

If you think Reagan and Palin are at all alike you didn't understand what Reagan was about.

Reagan was folksy, but Reagan was also a policy wonk.

Palin was asked about being nominated as VP:

"No, no -- I didn't blink. I felt quite confident in my abilities, in my executive experience, knowing that this is an executive administrative job."

Reagan was elected President, his comment:

"There's never been a more humbling moment in my life."

So are you suggesting Palin will become a Democrat?

When Sarah Palin hits the age Ronald Reagan was when he was elected President horny boys won't vote for her anymore.

You think this woman is your savior and cares about you? Think again --
Many of the unhappy people stood in the rain all day, bought the book from Borders and clutched their wristbands for their opportunity to meet Palin.


Standing in the rain for a day says more about her voting block/fanbase than her. Politicians are public servants, not celebrities.

Would anyone pay attention to her if she looked like Golda Meir? Would she have been VP candidate?
