If you watch as much political news as I do, sooner or later you'll come across someone reporting about how some Republicans want to run Sarah Palin in 2012. Yes, for president. Don't gag, read on. If you're having trouble believing that, just google "palin 2012"; you'll find a number of speculative articles. And of course, that's all that can exist at this time...speculative articles. I'd be interested in other people's takes on whether this is likely. I personally would have thought that she's such damaged goods by this time that it's highly unlikely. But the right wingnuts don't think like the rest of us. They may just be crazy enough to try it. Don't forget, a lot of them were never fully on-board with McCain, because he's not theocratic enough for them. And Palin herself doesn't seem bright enough to take a hint and realize that she's already a laughing stock. The more I think about it, the more I think she'll try and run for it.
