Sarah Palin’s upcoming book tour promises to turn into a political storm. The war room forces on left and right are ready to clash. The army of independents is ready to be amused and hurry to get to the front seat of the show. The political battle for the undecided has to go through the “Issue of Sarah Palin”.
The Conservatives are praying the former Governor improved her interviewing skills. Palin rules the heart of their base, but independents were not impressed by her the last time she was starring in prime-time. There is the hope that Sarah Palin took the sabbatical between governorship and the book tour seriously and worked hard on her public speaking skills. Miracles are possible if you work hard. The shining example of that is the House Republican’s whip Eric Cantor. The man took speech couching lessons and got rid of his southern drawl. Cantor is probably preparing for a future President run and is pouring thousands of dollars into enhancing his speaking abilities. Good for him. Did Sarah from Alaska have some help with her public speaking skills during her FaceBook period? We will know soon.
Most in the GOP hope Palin will succeed in her new adventure in the TV land. Success is defined as “go through all interviews without a memorable Katie Couric moment”. For the Republicans watching Palin will be like enjoying a thriller where a disaster may happen at every turn.
On the other hand some in GOP secretly root for her to fail and be gone forever from the political scene together with the nightmare of the past election. I’m afraid they will be disappointed. Looks like Palin is here to stay. She is able to excite those who like her and those who hate her. In our money making, entertainment loving society – Sarah Palin is like a pot of gold that will be full for a long time.
The Democrats are preparing to keep Palin in the comical context of SNL .Tina Fey is probably practicing her imitation skills and trying ala-Sarah glasses and hairdos in waiting for a new guest appearance in the show that assassinated Palin’s public image.
Democrats are hoping Palin will avert the attention of the masses away from the Obama’s crashing approval ratings. They hope to amuse the political junkies with Palin vs Oprah events instead of explaining why the latest Islamic terrorist who attacked on US soil was accepted in the Obama’s White House transition team. Democrats will use the opportunity provided by Palin to talk about the past presidential campaign when they loved the people and the people loved them, instead of explaining the current reality of new taxes in health care and cap-and trade.
Democrats may try to turn Palin’s book tour into reality show instead of talking about the sad reality of Obama’s inability to reach decision on Afghanistan.
Obama finally visited Alaska today!
Left and Right are ready to clash in a big Palin showdown. And let the best one win!
