So many mainstream news sources are touting polls showing Gov. Sarah Palin as receiving only tepid support in a possible run for the Republican Presidential nomination in 2012.
What a shock, after so many of those same programs have conducted the most egregious and nasty smear campaign against a national political figure since William Randolph Hearst!
This Designated Conservative is certainly not set on any one candidate for 2012, but…
… Governor Palin is high on my short list. I hope she runs, and I hope she stays in the race through all of the vitriol and nastiness that will inevitably come her way from the day she announces her candidacy.
We need a President that can take such nastiness with a disarming smile and a healthy sense of humor.
We need a President who understands America and can articulate a positive vision for the future of our country without need of a Teleprompter.
We need a President who is self-confident, self-deprecating, and self-aware enough to understand that he or she is not the center of the Universe, no matter how many people may try to say otherwise.
We need a President like Sarah Palin.
