Sarah Palin Will Run For President If Nobody Else 'Steps Up'
"The Politico" comes through with the latest hot Sarah Palin scoop: Sarah Palin was on teevee (this is obviously not the "scoop") -- on Fox News, to be exact (wait for it ...) -- and announced, between deep sighs and painful wheezy sounds, that she would be forced to run for president if no one else "wanted to step up." By this, Sarah Palin means "Don't even think about 'stepping up,' anyone, unless you want Todd to saw off your legs with an ice axe, tie your bleeding torso to his dog sled and push you off a glacier? Step up and see what happens. You will never 'step' anywhere, ever again." But that's just a paraphrase.
Here is America's restless public servant Sarah Palin, talking to Greta Van Susteren:
"A reason to run is if nobody else were to step up with the solutions that are needed to get the economy back on the right track and to be so committed to our national security that they are going to do all that they can, including fighting those on the extreme left who seem to want to dismantle some of our national security tools that we have in place," Palin said.
"If nobody else wanted to step up, Greta, I would offer myself up in the name of service to the public," Palin added. "But I also know that anybody — anybody — can make a huge difference in this country without a title, without an office, just being out there as an advocate for solutions that can work to get the country on the right track. And that's where I am now."
