Coulter: Why not Senator Palin?

posted at 4:37 pm on June 24, 2011 by Allahpundit

Via Mediaite. Granted, AC’s got a fee-vah and the only prescription is more Chris Christie, but I’ve floated this idea before myself. Arizona makes sense superficially, but the media there would use a Palin candidacy as an excuse to revisit the ridiculous “crosshairs map” nonsense after the Tucson shootings. Why not take on Mark Begich instead when his seat comes up next year? Alaska’s a red state at heart and she’s the world’s most famous Alaskan conservative, and there’s enough bad blood with Begich that she’d probably relish bumping him off. I’ve seen polls showing her favorable rating down even back home, but those numbers are less credible than national numbers: Alaska’s always been hard to poll accurately and surely she earned some new goodwill from promoting the state in her TLC series. If she knocked off Begich, she could follow Hillary’s path by building policy cred in the Senate and then launch a run in either 2016 (if Obama’s reelected) or 2020 (if he isn’t). She’ll be just 56 in 2020, in fact, which is five years younger than Hillary was when she ran in 2008.

Or maybe she’ll roll the dice and run for president now. RCP reports that “The Undefeated” will debut in Iowa next Tuesday, the day after Bachmann formally announces her campaign in Waterloo. No word yet on whether she’ll attend, but ask Romney what happens to a presidential launch when the media gets wind of an imminent Sarah Palin appearance.

Update: Whoops, brain freeze on my part. Begich isn’t up until 2014. For some reason I was thinking he was elected in 2006. Apologies for the mistake.

Never stops fascinating me how the mere shadow of Sarah Palin can shroud the luster of so many seemingly bright people.

Anybody who’d spent even a short time studying Palin would recognize her unsuitability to the role of a Senator and her obvious uninterest in the prospect.

Assuming Coulter isn’t obtuse about or inattentive to the nature of the human political character, she must have an another agenda. Gee, what could that be?

Sarah Palin says she isn’t considering a 2012 candidacy for a U.S. Senate seat from Arizona.

The former Alaskan governor tells KNXV-TV that running for Senate is not her plan and that she hasn’t considered a Senate candidacy in Arizona.

Her comments came Friday during a brief interview at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport in Phoenix.

Palin’s recent purchase of a part-time home in Scottsdale spurred speculation that she might run for the Senate seat now held by fellow Republican Jon Kyl.

Kyl is not running for re-election.

Agenda. The fear of Palin and a Palin candidacy runs so deep in so many places among the elite many are not even conscious of it.

rrpjr on June 24, 2011 at 4:55 PM

Coulter is right, of course. If Palin wants to be President, she’ll have to return to elected office to gain credibility first, preferably as a senator or governor.

Having only 2.5 years experience in major elected office before resigning was a deal-killer in itself, and preaching exclusively to the choir since hasn’t helped her prospects, even if her bank account did benefit greatly.

Will she do it? I doubt it. She seems to be looking for a quick and easy shortcut that just isn’t there.

Hell, how about a post on Herman Cain winning any election and having any policy cred before running for president.

Coulter must be confused. Just a few weeks ago, Coulter said that POTUS would be a step down for Palin. Wouldn’t Senator be a bigger step down?

Palin has said she’s not interested in running for the Senate. The only elective office that Palin may run for will be POTUS. If she doesn’t run in 2012, she’ll never run for elective office again.

To suggest that Palin would be interested in saddling herself with a Senate seat is STOOOPID. You really think she’d take a job that displaces her family to be one of 535 people who can’t accomplish crap? I don’t think so.

What made the “Palin treatment” effective is that she responded poorly to it. Instead of going toe to toe with the MSM and taking them on face to face, she hid behind Facebook and Hannity to whine about it.

Candidates who choose advisors based on experience and competence instead of mere personal devotion (as Palin has done) aren’t likely to make that mistake.

The schoolyard bully always favors the kid he knows won’t fight back when looking for someone to pick on.

Palin probably isn’t running anyways, but the opposition to her doing so is because Republicans want to beat Obama in 2012, and Palin isn’t up to the task.

Hollowpoint on June 24, 2011 at 5:07 PM

They aren’t likely to get very far with that narrative, considering the cops found evidence in the gunman’s own handwriting that he formed his intent to shoot Giffords back in 2007, after he met her at a local meet-and-greet and she didn’t respond to him in the way his psychotic little heart desired.

Unless the media here know how to bend time backwards, there’s no credible way to make Sarah Palin’s 2010 “crosshairs” image the impetus for a mentally ill individual’s intent to kill in 2007.

Advice the haters fail to heed

I’m not a Palinista but why are people afraid of her running?

Because her nomination guarantee an Obama second term?

That’s reason enough to oppose her nomination….strongly.

Maybe you want another radical leftist on the Supreme Court….some of us don’t.

I don’t think I have seen a more clueless post since the last cdseven post. Here’s your sign./

I see you don’t get the difference from wanting someone dead and wanting someone not being President.

Know wonder your screen name is Knucklehead…LOL

There’s one of those too and another about pee’ing on Obama, the HA filters keep eating my link.

Knucklehead on June 24, 2011 at 5:11 PM

Granted, AC’s got a fee-vah and the only prescription is more Chris Christie,

With his hardly conservative stands on gun control, abortion, and immigration, why does AC want him to run so badly? He’s a fiscal hawk, no doubt, but I’m not certain his judicial appointments would be helpful to conservatives.

ladyingray on June 24, 2011 at 5:11 PM

your concern is noted.

So Palin is unqualified per Ann because she only has 2.5 years as GOv but Christie with his 1.5 years is quailified.

got it.

I was addressing her opinion about Palin, not Christie. As much as I’ve enjoyed watching him face down Dems on youtube clips, I don’t think he should run for President this cycle.

If someone posts something idiotic and no one listens, does it disappear from the page?

You’ll never know if you keep feeding your obsession by reading every comment I write.

Palin is the only one that can beat Obama. do you think Mitt has coattails or Mitt can creat a wave election?

pklease. Mitt can’t win the south. Without the south Obama wins.

Obviously, His Oneness is unbeatable. Let’s run someone who can lose gracefully to him.

Roy Rogers on June 24, 2011 at 5:13 PM

Since we are planning other peoples lives, careers and futures, may I suggest to Ann Coulter that she should try for a position at Fox, perhaps take over the time slot when Beck leaves. I just believe she could be even more successful. I know I’d be up for an hour with Ann.

So when can we expect your blog post about how Rep. Bachmann should drop out of the 2012 GOP primary and concentrate on winning Klobuchar’s Senate seat to expand her policy cred?

Hell, how about a post on Herman Cain winning any election and having any policy cred before running for president.

I look forward to those blog posts.

Could not have said this better myself.

Eh, AP?

davek70 on June 24, 2011 at 5:14 PM

Why not? Possibly because, imho, the skill set for governor/president/chief executive is somewhat different than that of a senator/legislator/committee member.

Is my main problem with Pence and Bachmann. Sure, they might be great conservatives and legislators, but I’d prefer for them to serve as governors of their states first, before running for president. Which is why I’m very glad that Pence will run for gov of Indiana. I have very high hopes for the man.

Sure, Palin might do a decent job as senator and it is important to increase the number of competent conservative senators, but unless she ended up chairing one of the more important committees such as Foreign Affairs (which would never be given to a freshman senator), she’d not really be burnishing any “presidential creds” by being just one more wader through the muddy morass that is the Legislative Branch of Congress.

I’d prefer someone with executive experience as president so that colors my opinions of any presidential candidate, though I will in fact vote for whomever wins the GOP primary in the general.

Kirin on June 24, 2011 at 5:14 PM

Coulter is right, of course. If Palin wants to be President, she’ll have to return to elected office to gain credibility first…
Hollowpoint on June 24, 2011 at 4:55 PM

Yes, of course. Clearly and of course, of course.

I’m sorry, of course, to let you know that a former town councilwoman, mayor, governor, President of the Conference of Mayors, Chairwoman of the Alaska Oil and Gas Conservation Commission, Chair of the National Governors Association and National Resources Committee, mother of five, co-owner of a family fishing business and the vice presidential candidate of her party doesn’t need any further bona fide to run for higher political office and even with half these accreditations still wouldn’t need it after the precedent established by the CV-challenged clown currently holding the office.
