Re: “Palin for president?

Oh, it's the "Palin is dumb" crowd. LOL. Ok, you smarties, you go run for city council. Get elected. Then run for mayor and get elected twice. Cut taxes and encourage business development. Then just as your political star is starting to shine, and you're siting in a cush position on an important state committee, blow the whistle on your own party at the higest levels of state government. Quit that six-figure cushy job to protest self-dealing in your party. Report the state party chairman for conflicts of interest resulting in the largest fine ever levied against a public official. Then run for governor challenging an incumbent from your party. Get elected as the youngest governor in your state. Achieve an 87% approval rating, and get hailed by Newsweek as "pragmatic" and "post-partisan." Negotiate a $26 billion natural gas pipeline that had stalled for three decades. Take on big oil to gain more revenues for your state. Lay off the governor's chef and chauffeur to save the state money. Give birth to a special needs baby. Get picked as your party's first female Vice Presidential candidate. Help your running mate rush out to a 3 point lead after your historic nomination speech watched by 45 million people.

Attract 50,000 to a rally in Florda. Go toe-to-toe with six-term Senator in the most watched VP debate in history.

Tell Katie Couric you read "all of the papers" that are relevant to your job, and be told you're dumb for not saying The New York Times.

Quit your governor's job after 32 months to take the pressure off your state from your own notoriety that has attracted 20 frivolous ethics complaints. Pass the torch to a fiscally conservative lieutenant governor. Tell Andrea Mitchell: If I die politicially, I die.

Write a memoir, submit it six months early, and acheive bestseller status before the book is released, earning a $7 million advance.

Attract 927,000 devoted Facebook fans, and write timely notes that get picked up by major media outlets. Lead the national debate on healthcare, climate change, energy independence and the weakening dollar.

Give a six-figure speech in Hong Kong on common sense conservatism, and American resurgence, earning praise from the New York Times. Stand up against human rights abuses, calling out China, your host. Don't apologize for being American.

Have I left anything out?

Ok, smarties, what are you waiting for? Go for it ... If Palin can do all that, certainly YOU can achieve much more than her.
