Quote o’ the Day (Sarah Palin Edition)

( . . . at least for now, although it will be tough to top this one.)

The hardworking staff realizes that this is a very long QotD, but really, it’s worth it.

From ABC News’s The Note:

WHAT ABOUT PALIN? “A Palin presidency: Too ‘shackle-y?’ That’s what Sarah Palin suggested on Fox News’ ‘On The Record with Greta Van Susteren’ last night, saying that she’s concerned jumping into the 2012 presidential race will muffle her message,” according to ABC Palin-watcher Sheila Marikar. “‘Is a title worth it?’ she asked, rhetorically. ‘Does a title shackle a person? Are they someone like me who’s maverick? I do go rogue and I call it like I see it and I don’t mind stirring it up in order to get people to think and debate aggressively.’ ‘Is a title and a campaign too shackle-y?,’ she continued. ‘Does that prohibit me from being out there, out of a box, not allowing handlers to shape me and to force my message to be what donors or what contributors or what pundits want it to be? Does a title take away my freedom to call it like I see it and to affect positive change that we need in this country? That’s the biggest contemplation piece in my process.’ Palin expressed a concern about ‘being caricatured’ if she runs, and asked again ‘whether a title is needed to make a difference or someone can be rogue, can be maverick, can be passionate about issues and can get people to think very wisely about issues.’”http://abcn.ws/mVvPUK

Wanna know the biggest contemplation piece in our process?

    The video clip from the Greta van Susteren show that’s being highlighted elsewhere shows Palin calling Herman Cain HERB Cain. When Ted Kennedy made such flubs, people blamed on the whiskey. What’s Sara’s excuse?

    Is there a quotation in there somewhere?

    It hasn’t looked to me all year as though Palin was considering another run for public office. The reason is that she showed no signs of care or control by a seasoned communications adviser.

    With the exception of someone like Gov. Perry (up until a week or two ago), people who are considering a run for president usually get very careful with what they say. She was clearly controlled by a communications team in the fall of 2008 (see: press avoidance), even though she still managed to peek through with some big gaffes. She shows no sign currently of having any kind of press adviser, so I can’t imagine that she’s plotting behind the scenes to run.

    She continues to get column inches long after her day passed.
    The attention continues to make her rich.
