Sarah Palin is a kingmaker, not the next US president

Just because it’s Sarah Palin month on Telegraph blogs, some readers have mistakenly imagined that we’re using our enormous power as the UK blogosphere’s answer to Fox News to ensure that she becomes the next US president. But we’re not.

I think I can speak for most of us here when I say that though Sarah Palin is undoubtedly hot – and is probably the only person in the world capable of outdoing Vladimir Putin when it comes to posing for semi-pornographic outdoor photoshoots with rod, horse and gun – her real value is as a kingmaker not as POTUS.

  1. I tend to agree with you James. But politics is an aesthetic exercise (I believe this week). America remembers Sarah as she stood on the stage holding her Downs Syndrome baby which she had just introduced to the Republican convention. She didn’t say a word. But everyone at the convention rose to their feet cheering wildly. And everyone knew just what she was saying: My Christian convictions would not allow me to do away with the innocent life of this baby. What you saw at the convention must have had the same effect throughoutAmerica. The effect was somewhat like Bryan’s “You shall not crucify America on a cross of gold” speech. It did not win him the presidency but it won him the nomination. He ran and lost. I should mention that the feminist movement immediately recognized her speech as throwing down the gauntlet of culture war. They weren’t wrong.
