Hey GOP, take the Palin cure. She's hot, she's blue collar, she's electable.

The Republican Party has been doing a lot of hand-wringing and finger-pointing since the presidential election. Half the conservative columnists and bloggers say the GOP lost because it overemphasized social issues such as abortion and gay marriage. The other half says the party didn't emphasize them enough. And everyone denounces Project ORCA, the campaign's attempt to turn out voters via technology. But I've got a suggestion for cutting short the GOP angst: Sarah Palin for president in 2016. You think I'm joking? Think again.

snip...

Furthermore, looks count in politics, and Palin at age 48, has it all over her possible competition, including Hillary Rodham Clinton, who will be 69 by election day 2016 and who let someone talk her into adopting the flowing blond locks of a college student, making her look like Brunnhilde in a small-town Wagner production. Men love Sarah Palin, and she loves men.

She's tough as nails too. After Election 2008, she was supposed to have been through. This year eight of the 14 GOP candidates Palin endorsed for Congress won election or reelection, including tea party favorite Ted Cruz for a Senate seat in Texas.

snip...

There are also the snooty East Coast Republican intellectual types, such as Peggy Noonan, who look down their noses at a woman who doesn't shop at Neiman Marcus and didn't attend an Ivy League university. But Peggy made a fool of herself calling the election for Romney on Nov. 5. Who's going to care what she and her ilk have to say next time?

1. LOL...the comments are funnier than the article!

It was meant to be a spoof, but some pinheads took it seriously. There are 600 comments - and 590 of them are by the same 3 losers

2. Hey GOP, Take the Bait.

Please let this woman be your next nominee for POTUS. It will only guarantee a third Democratic Presidency in a row. Is this too much to ask for? She might be somewhat hot, but she's not blue collar anymore, and she's definitely not electable. Please Jeebus let it be so!

3. Palin/West 2016!

It's a dream team!

(My dream that is... in which we counter with Clinton/Warren or some other almost as awesome combination.)

6. Never happen. Never a female and esp not an uppity one.

She was picked as McCain's running mate because the oligarchs wanted the repubs to lose. They would never pick a female to be their candidate.

7. Be Careful What You Wish For

There is no such thing as an unelectable Republican.
