If I was still in the GOP, I would have left today. For reasons that absolutely mystify me, Sarah Palin is leading the GOP pack in the race for the 2012 nomination. Bobby Jindal, a far more capable candidate, is at 9%. Unsolicited advice to GOP: Sarah Palin is damaged goods. Tina Fey destroyed any prospect of her holding office outside of the state of Alaska. If she ran in 2012, besides being mercilessly hounded every night on every cable news channel, she'd be skewered by Fey's dead on impersonation of her on SNL. Tina Fey is unelectable at the national level. Bobby Jindal is a Rhodes scholar and is turning around hurricane ravaged Louisiana in the middle of a mini Depression. The guy is the Indian Ronald Reagan, how can GOP voters miss this? One person I know is very pleased with this news, and that's Barack Obama. He's already got his second inauguration plans commencing, knowing he'll be able to clean the clock with Palin. GOP, please take your role as an opposition party seriously and put someone up that may actually beat Obama in 2012: Jindal, General David Petraeus, heck even Newt Gingrich. But Palin won't win, no matter shape America's in 2012. I guarantee it.
