WHO’S #1! WHO’S #1!
Sarah Palin’s book will come out on November 17. It is, today Sept 30, on the top of Amazon’s bestseller list. That would be the number 1 spot. Whoo-hoo! People have wondered where she has been keeping herself since leaving the governorship. I’ll tell you. She has been melting keyboards.
I had predicted after her resignation that she would:
- Hit the lecture circuit
- Campaign for myriad like minded conservatives running for congress
- When her candidates help run the Democrats out of the leadership positions, she will own the Republicans.
Now I have to add:
0. Write memoirs to lay out her philosophical position.
I suspect we’ll be seeing more of her in the future.
Note to all the other wannabe Republican presidential candidates (that would be YOU, Mitt and HickHuck): Watch how many people show up to her book signings. Watch how many people show up for her public appearances. If you can’t draw tens of thousands of people to come and see YOU speak. No free concerts like the Empty Suit in the White House used. No coinciding with a traveling carnivals, or flea markets. Tens of thousands coming out to meet YOU…then plan on fighting for second place and save the Party an internal bloodletting. Assuming she doesn’t relieve the Party of that burden by simply hanging your political hide over her fireplace on your first encounter.
Question: Will she try to harness the energy of the Tea Party movement? No one else has really tried to embrace it in a big way. Tea Parties aren’t Republican. Their more libertarian. So’s she. It has a large populist tendency. She is a populist politician.
Oh, I can’t wait to see what she does next.
