There's a very good reason Sarah Palin can be elected President

Various commentators point out that because Sarah Palin is so very unqualified to be President of the United States, they hope she will be the Republican nominee on the 2012 ballot.  The assumption is that the fact of her being unqualified will be so apparent to the voting public that she will be rejected.

How quickly they forget.  They forget that even though George Bush was as equally unqualified as Sarah Palin, he still was able to fake his way through eight years as president.

How quickly they forget that both George Bush and Sarah Palin are Republicans and all that entails. 

It's true that George Bush lost the popular vote to Al Gore by more than half a million votes.  It's said that the people will reject Sarah Palin.  Well, they rejected George Bush in 2000 and it made not one bit of difference.  He still became president.  Republicans have  ways to overcome being rejected and losing an election.

The Republican Supreme Court appointed Bush during a recount of the votes in Florida, while Bush was a few hundred votes ahead.  They stopped the recount at that point to ensure that Bush would have the required Electoral College votes to win.

That decision was not a Supreme Court decision, it was not a judicial decision.  It was strictly a Republican decision by Republicans for Republicans.  And the Republicans still control the Supreme Court.

Again, George Bush and Sarah Palin are Republicans, and that decision by a Republican Supreme Court is what being a Republican entails.  They've got your back, Sarah.

Sarah Palin has shown the same obliviousness to her logical contradictions, her complete misinterpretation and misunderstanding of the obvious as George Bush.  Republicans, as typified by George Bush and Sarah Palin are unaware, and cannot be made aware, that there are some people who know more about things than they do. 

They live in a state of general ignorance, happily proposing simplistic solutions to highly complex problems.

Palin reacted recently to those, including Gabrielle Giffords, who pointed out that her gun sight crosshairs targeting Giffords and others would have consequences.  Sure enough, Giffords was shot.

Palin has enhanced her conservative credentials and become even more the darling of the Republicans by giving us a whiny, defensive rant, saying that merely pointing out that her inciting violence is what causes violence.  Try to figure the logic of that.  But, Republicans just love it.

Sarah, why are you so defensive if you have done nothing to be defensive about?

Palin projects the image of an amiable doofus, the Barney Fife of politics.  Just as George Bush was a crotchety, snappish, impatient doofus of a Barney Fife.

Palin has shown the nation and the world what she is.  Her transparent bigotry and ignorance is too much to describe here.

After his first four years, George Bush had showed exactly the same thing.  Because of that revelation, we were absolutely dead sure, convinced, there was no doubt that Bush could not, no way, be re-elected.

But, inexplicably, he was.  And, by the same process, whatever it is, having to do with a Republican Supreme Court and the voting public's preference for Republican simplistic solutions, so can Sarah Palin be elected president.
