Sarah Palin Is Perfectly Willing to Be the Republican Candidate, If You Need Her

Posted by Paul Constant on Thu, Feb 16, 2012 at 9:44 AM

The Page has highlighted an interesting conversation between Sarah Palin and a Fox Business Network reporter about the possibility of a brokered Republican convention:

BOLLING: Governor, a lot of people are saying it can't happen. I don't necessarily agree with them. If one of the nominees, one of the GOPers, doesn't get enough delegates, it could go the a brokered convention. If it does get to that and someone said, Governor, would you be interested, would you be interested?

PALIN: Well, for one, I think that it could get to that. And I — you know, if it had to — if it had to be kind of closed up today, the whole nominating process, then we would be looking at a brokered convention.
I mean nobody is quite there yet. So I think that months from now, if that's the case, then, you know, all bets are off as to who it will be willing to offer themselves up in the name of service to their country. I would — I would do whatever I could to help.

BOLLING: That's — that's fantastic.

God, yes, that is fantastic. A teabagger-crazed brokered convention naming Sarah Palin as the candidate is a progressive's wet dream. As long as the Fantastic Four keep fighting across the country, that dream lives on. Let us pledge to do anything we can do to help Sarah Palin achieve her dream.
