Palin, who was not previously thought to be considering a run, told The Washington Post on Friday that she is mulling a bid. "You can absolutely say that I am seriously interested," Palin said.

The RNC should not even let her near this campaign.

I dunno, she imparts gravitas to even their third-string wannabes by lowering the baseline.

Her Iowa speech makes you wonder if she is all there. Watch the video at the bottom to get an idea how bad it was.

Still, she makes the brain surgeon guy look rational.

Obviously she hasn't been in the headlines enough. When she says she's "absolutely interested" she means she's absolutely interested in keeping up her fame and hence her money making apparatus.

Correct.  If Sarah Palin were interested in wielding political power, she wouldn't have resigned her governorship midway through the first term.

She is very interested in taking on television appearances and speaking engagements, snarking about liberals, and getting paid for the effort.  She's found a way to make a very comfortable living while doing something that she loves, and recognizes that occasionally making noise about running for office is an effective way to reinvigorate her brand.  She did the same thing ahead of the 2012 presidential race when she rented a bus and drove around aimlessly for a few days as part of a cheap publicity stunt.

Sarah Palin has put zero effort into readying herself for a presidential bid.  She has no financial backers, no support infrastructure, and even fewer policy credentials than she had as the vice-presidential candidate in 2008.  She is not "back"; she is not running for president.

Also, "seriously" interested? Come on. English, people! Use it.
