Karl Rove aka Bush’s Brain predicted this morning on Fox News that Sarah Palin “gets in” to the presidential race next month (h/t TP):
One can never really figure out Rove’s machinations since he helped ruin the country and his own party as President Bush’s consigliere. He and the Bush mob don’t like Rick “Four Pinocchios” Perry — even though Rove helped make Perry possible, as HuffPost has noted.
Certainly Obama looks beatable with his plummeting popularity and lame messaging, which is no doubt why Perry got it. But if Palin were smart — yes, I know — why would she get in now, rather than a month ago, which might have forestalled Perry — or even earlier, to forestall Michele Bachmann? Her entry now means a three-way split for the tea party vote and would probably make Mitt Romney the happiest of all.
As for Palin herself, she makes Perry seem like Lincoln (see Palin blames ‘Gore-gate’ for “this snake oil science stuff”). During the 2008 presidential campaign, the Washington Post itself gave her its highest (which is to say lowest) rating of “Four Pinocchios” for continuing to “to peddle bogus [energy] statistics three days after the original error was pointed out by independent fact-checkers.”
There aren’t enough Pinocchios in a children’s library for this crop of GOP presidential candidates.
