I vividly recall the two times I feared for the future of this country. The first, the nightmare of the Cuban missile crisis; and the second, the vice presidential candidacy of Sarah Palin, potentially placing her a mere seventy-year old, myocardial heartbeat away from the Big Button. Fortunately, Khrushchev blinked, and the American electorate denied Sarah the White House.
Palin is making noises about running again, but I don't believe she's serious. Running for the presidency is not her strong suit. She'd have to read all those nasty position papers, take a humongous pay cut and couldn't go clothes and jewelry shopping on her campaign credit card, without the whole world watching. I predict that Sarah will take a pass.
Michelle Bachmann is a dark horse of another color. She's the queen of the tea party, a spirited speaker, formidable fund raiser, faithful spouse, and sharp tongued warrior, ever ready to do battle with our "Un-American" President.
She's going to be a whole lot of fun to have around in the campaign season. Once Newt implodes completely and Cain fails to deliver, it will be up to Michelle to take up the radical right wing slack and keep the carnival going.
