Sarah Palin Is Not Running For President
The sound you just heard was a collective sigh of relief from the American public…Those of us with connected brain cells, that is.
There’s big news brewing on the political front: After months of teasing us in a game of “Will She, Won’t She?” Alaskan “maverick” (Insert Eye-Rolling Here…) Sarah Palin has announced that she will not seek the Republican nomination to unseat Barack Obama in next year’s presidential election. Palin announced her decision in an interview with conservative radio host Mark Levin on Wednesday, explaining that her husband Todd and their family were the forces that played into the decision-making process most prominently.
“Family does come first,” Palin, the 2008 GOP Vice-Presidential candidate, told Levin. “After much prayer and serious consideration, I have decided that I will not be seeking 2012 GOP nomination for president of the United states. As always, my family comes first and obviously Todd and I put great consideration into family life before making this decision.”
She added: “By working together we can bring this country back â€” and as I’ve always said, one doesn’t need a title to help do it. It’s not about me, it’s about all of us who are trying to wake up America.”
TV personality Piers Morgan was especially disappointed by Palin’s move to sit this election out.
“BREAKING: Following Sarah Palin & Chris Christie announcements, I would like to confirm I am NOT running for President either,” the host of CNN’s Piers Morgan Tonight Tweeted a short time ago.
