“Of Course” Sarah Palin’s Down For A 2016 Run

Can we just not with a Sarah Palin presidential run? Please? ABC News tracked Palin down in Las Vegas yesterday, where she was serving wild boar chili to the homeless after attending the annual Shooting, Hunting and Outdoor Trade Show. When asked if she’d be interested in the 2016 election, Palin replied, “Yeah, I mean, of course, when you have a servant’s heart, when you know that there is opportunity to do all you can to put yourself forward in the name of offering service, anybody would be interested.” When the interviewer asked again if she’d possibly be interested in running for president, she proceeded with a winding monologue of chipper word vomit:

“We definitely had enough of seeing that — America has had enough of seeing that — sign on the Oval Office door saying, ‘No Girls Allowed.’ I know that…It doesn’t necessarily have to be me, though, but no, America is definitely ready for real change…It doesn’t have to be myself, but yes … happy to drive that competition, because competition will make everyone better and produce more and be more candid regarding their solutions they will offer this country. I am very interested in that competitive process and, again, not necessarily me.”

Do with that information what you will. Sounds like she’s about to try to sell us a new Palin-sponsored product soon. I mean, she’s definitely got a secret up her sleeve here, am I right? Or am I just turning into a conspiracy theorist? Maybe the “servant’s heart” drivel put me over the edge. The interviewer also asked Palin about the fact that Jeb Bush and Mitt Romney may be running on the Republican ticket, and that seemed to enthuse her:

 “I can’t wait for new energy. Big competition, and that competition in the GOP … will surface that candidate who can take on Hillary, be ready for Hillary and show the nation what it is going to take to get the country back on the right track — because we can’t afford status quo, because status quo lately has been Latin for, ‘We are getting screwed,’ and status quo has got to go.”

Note that as she served the homeless, Palin wore a promotional apron and hat for The Sportsman Channel, the network that airs her show “Amazing America with Sarah Palin.” Gotta maximize profits when breaking out that servant’s heart!
