Dems fear a Palin candidacy!

It's haven't heard much talk in the liberal blogosphere about a potential Palin candidacy. But when I do find leftists who are aware of the possibility, they all seem to have a similar reaction: fear.

My latest find was this comment on a recent Daily Kos post (bolding added):

Sarah Palin would be by far be the most attractive VP for McCain (literally and figuartively). That's probably the toughest ticket we could face (assuming Lieberman is telling the truth when he says he won't run with McCain). But I think most likely, McCain will choose someone under age 50 to off-set concerns about his age and make him seem less like an insider, so Tim Pawlenty or John Thune could also be possible choices.

I don't think McCain is stupid enough to choose Huckabee (The Republican base would explode) or Rice (Do you really want THAT strong of a connection to the Bush administration?).

As cocky as the Democrats have been about their 2008 chances, I think it's fair to say that you are on to something big when you can identify a candidate who truly scares them.

Ladies and gentlemen, we have found that candidate and her name is Sarah Palin!

Just FYI...

The smartest thing Mitt could do,

to rejuvenate outside interest in the campaign,

to bring in lost women conservatives who want to see a women in the White House,

and generate amazing free press in the mainstream media,

would be one simple thing...

and that thing would be to announce Gov. Sarah Palin as his VP!

I'm pretty sure the Democrats are not fearing much of anything. Republicans dug themselves into this hole, it will take more than a pretty face to get them out of it.

Funny site, btw.

I'm just worried that voters would be too concerned that McCain would die early one and leave Palin in charge when she still has so little international experience. Personally I still think that a McCain & Palin tickit would be the best there is.

Hmm, first heard about this over at Ace's (slublog). Also read the post below with the excerpts about her family life. Sounds like a really nice woman, I'll definitely be back to find out more.

This sounds like a magnificent idea, and as a Pennsylvanian I confess I don't know much about Gov. Palin.

But so far what I'm reading sounds good, which is some comfort in these insane times.
