Although many might not realize this fact, what I am about to predict falls into the firm-grasp-of-the-obvious category.
Last night I was bored, so I planted myself in front of the television and played with the remote control. No program held my attention, and repeated visits to various news channels revealed more of the same. At some point, I decided to stop abusing the remote and shortening battery life; I fetched a drink, without noticing the channel running advertisements.
Upon my return, I discovered my mistake: Fox News was on, and Sarah Palin was blabbering and grinning her foolish grin. Before I could grab the remote and escape from that parallel universe, I heard something about her facing a decision to run for president of the United States of the 2nd Amendment.
Does anyone believe this will ever happen? This woman is interested only in amassing personal wealth and knows how to play the game. Running for political office costs money; it does not enrich the person (in the short run). Her ego might be large, but her greed is greater.
I now must find a betting organization giving odds on her running...
