coming around to the belief that the Republican National Committee is throwing this election, and John McCain (who they really kinda hate) under the bus, willing to concede it, along with some house and senate seats to Democrats and Progressives.
And they're doing with a long-term goal in mind: to hand the mess in Washington over to whoever (they don't really care), then spend the next four-eight years 'Clintonizing' that person & party, and positioning Sarah Palin to run for President in either 2012 or 2016.
There are those who are predicting she'll slink back to Alaska with no chance of reemerging on the national stage. I don't think so. She is steadily pushing the shiv into John McCain's ribs and she will stand on his neck in those heels to get what she wants. I joked to some of my coworkers back when he first picked her (and I'm beginning to believe he had nothing to do with picking her) that he might want to hire someone as his food taster. It's not sounding so funny these days.
