There is news out there that the Palins have purchased a house in Arizona. It could only mean that they are tired of Alaskan winters. But, it could also mean that she has special plans for the next few years, and flying back and forth from Anchorage to the South 48 is expensive, time consuming, and problematic.
We who love and respect Governor Palin know what an uphill battle she will have if she decides to run in the upcoming national election cycle. But even though it sounds daunting, it is only “just one more challenge” to a person who eats challenges for breakfast. Looking back on Sarah’s record in Alaska, it’s interesting to see how fearless she was when taking on entrenched corruption and desperate liberals fighting to stay out of jail. If anything, she’s only gotten stronger and wiser since then.
She may even have a tougher time against the mossback Republicans than she does against the leftists. The entrenched interests in the GOP bluebloods are not going to go down without a fight, but they keep forgetting that Sarah Palin never, ever backed down from a battle. Fighting to win is what she does. If she is challenged, she will only fight harder and think faster and farther ahead. It was the kind of brainpower that made her a highschool champion, then a tough and courageous governor, and it will serve her well once more as chief executive.
Expect an uphill battle, even here in Alaska. The old guard GOP here have a score to settle; several, in fact. They will be gunning for her like nobody they ever fought before. (Remember: GOP politicians in Alaska are really Democrats who learned how to get elected by running as Republicans.) They are desperate, but SHE is dedicated and knows what’s expected of the team captain. She is going to be upsetting a lot of applecarts on the so-called right.
Throughout it all, she is still Sarahcuda, still the experienced budget-cutter and giant-killer. Her record in Alaska is good enough for me, but I know that it will not be ALL she has going for her. She has an enormous asset in the enthusiastic support of the people; people who love her, trust her, and realize that she can be the leader who stops the headlong rush to fiscal ruin and national degradation among world powers.
The voters of America know a leader when they see one. Military Veterans recognize a fighter. Not many candidates would be able to shoulder the burden of expectation that the people of America are hoping to place on Sarah Palin. But she is the kind of leader who is equal to the task. It’s what giant-killers do.
