First, the back story.
One of the people endorsed by Sarah Palin this election season, is wingnut Tea Party candidate [and now the GOP nominee for Senate], Alaskan, Joe Miller.
According to Jeanne Devon of Mudflats, via CBS News, Miller is now on Sarah Palin's FU list, since on September 19, Miller appeared on Fox News Sunday, when Neil Cavuto asked Miller if Palin was qualified to be the President. Miller answered in a way that apparently didn’t sit too well with Sarah Palin the narcissist, and Todd fired back via an outraged email.
Miller’s non-committal response that there were “a number of great candidates out there” for the job fell far short of a Palin endorsement, and seems to have roused the ire of Todd Palin who launched an angry email blasting Miller on behalf of his wife. Palin sent the email on the morning of the Cavuto interview to Tim Crawford, Joe Miller and the Palins’ personal attorney, Thomas Van Flein (who also serves as Miller’s attorney.) In the email, Todd Palin instructs SarahPAC treasurer Tim Crawford to “Hold off on any letter for Joe. Sarah put her ass on the line for Joe and yet he can’t answer a simple question “is Sarah Palin Qualified to be President”. I DON’T KNOW IF SHE IS.”
Two things here. Sarah Palin is interested in a run for the presidency in 2012, and the semi-literate clod, Todd Palin, is still acting as Sarah Palin’s “shadow”, or at least, as her enforcer.
Todd Palin, while rarely making public statements, has been intimately involved in his wife’s political career, and had been referred to in Alaska as the “shadow governor” during Sarah Palin’s brief tenure as chief executive of the state. Todd Palin often sat in on official meetings, and gave input into decisions made by the administration. When his involvement fell under criticism, attorney Thomas Van Flein confirmed Todd Palin’s involvement in government affairs by calling him “a key advisor” to the governor.
I have three words to say re her presidential aspirations:bring it on.
