Sarah Palin

Wow. She's Also A Terrible Politician.

Sarah Palin -- WHOOPS! -- admitted she wants to run in 2012 which is, of course, a major insult to the McCain campaign. CNN via Atrios:

BLITZER: She was asked what happens in 2012 if you lose on Tuesday, would you simply go back to Alaska? Elizabeth Vargas of ABC News asked her and Palin said this, and I will read it to you verbatim according to an ABC News transcript: "Absolutely not," Sarah Palin says. "I think that, if I were to give up and wave a white flag of surrender against some of the political shots that we've taken, that ... that would ... bring this whole ... I'm not doin' this for naught."

Not only did she successfully piss off the McCain campaign, but she also admitted on national television that she's basically done with Alaska. Smart! Savvy!
