A Disturbance in the Force

I'm feelin' it.....

so anyway, Smitty of The Other McCain fame posts a thought experiment today:
Of course, he's talking about Sarah Palin and some of the "tea leaves" that have been recently floated. Apparently, Sarah has updated her FaceSpace info page; changing her "Political Views" from "Republican" to "Conservative".

Josh Painter, at Texans for Sarah Palin has a good post up on the current situation with the GOP candidates and the aforementioned "disturbance in the Force". It's a good "inside baseball" piece, read the whole thing.

Not to go all "Columbo", but there's just one last thing that keeps making squeaking noises in the back of my head. Paraphrasing Josh Painter:

"When Gov. Palin announced on October 5 that she had decided not to run for president, she cited family reasons.....The words "at this time" from her official statement have been cited by some of her supporters as a clue that Sarah Palin, her family and her close advisors saw some new wrinkle in the political landscape that may have caused her to postpone her run, perhaps until 2016 or 2020."

Maybe I'm misremembering (it has happened before) Gov.Palin's announcement, but what I heard her say was that she was "not seeking the Republican nomination.....at this time".

I could be wishcasting, but "not seeking the Republican nomination" does not mean "not running for President". YMMV.

more soon
