I've been hoping you would realize the futility of pursuing a national political career. In fact, I've been waiting for signs that you were going to be content to remain in Alaska and keep "progressing that great State" until you were voted out of office by another candidate for Governor come 2010. And then I was not going to spend more time on my blog pointing out your weaknesses, foibles, and deceptions.
But then I heard you started your very own political action committee (PAC).
If that weren't bad enough, a poster at Alaska Daily News (ADN) noticed that you've filed with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) as a presidential candidate for 2012.
And I'll be darned if you didn't do that too! Just so that folks don't think I'm making this up, here's the link to the record image showing your "Office Sought: President" in "Election Year: 2012" filing.
So, quit blaming the media and the bloggers, Sarah. You entered national politics and you've now clearly stated your intention to remain a contender. The gloves are off as far as I am concerned, and everything that can be known, or figured out, about you is fair game for exploration and discussion.
Count on endless replays of Katie Couric interviews and that Sarkozy spoof. Look for Bellygate to keep on growing. Watch out for those fresh ethics complaints and a revival of interest in who told the Troopergate truth. Then there's Pebblegate and the elephant in the room, Gaslinegate. It should be a fun couple of years ahead!
