Big Important Piece of the Night: Donkeys now using the ‘Hail Sarah’ pass

I believe the answer is based, in significant part, on Obama’s low polls and his need for a “Hail Mary” (or a “Hail Sarah”) Pass, a gamble that could get him reelected. Robert  Reich is not lying when he says Palin is a serious candidate, and he knows she could win against Obama. But, in my opinion, he and the other Democrats believe that Obama would have the much more trouble winning against a classic conventional male experienced candidate such as former Gov. Romney, Gov. Pawlenty of Minnesota, Gov. Perry of Texas or Sen. DeMint of South Carolina. A dull (or not so dull) man in a suit who doesn’t try to remake America overnight would look awfully good to a lot of voters today in comparison to Barack Obama, the Accidental Tourist to India who created a lot of government jobs — printing dollars and bonds (with prospectuses in Chinese) and made their family doctor seriously consider retiring.

Sarah Palin, on the other hand is a very unconventional person who shows up on “Dancing With the Stars” to cheer her daughter and then appears on her own show to stand in a stream with a bear. George Will was not impressed with Palin on “This Week.” Barbara Bush was downright nasty on a book tour, saying Palin should stay home in Alaska. But being unconventional — and disliked by long time Establishment Republicans and even long time conservatives does not guarantee a loss in 2012 in Twenty-First Century America. Far from it. Sarah Palin could beat Barack Obama, but she would be the opponent the Democrats would find easiest to attack, giving the former Messiah of Lake Michigan a fighting chance to win.
