Breaking News: Sarah Palin is NOT Running for President

9:44 pm - 10/05/2011

Sarah Palin, former Alaska governor and Tea Party favorite, announced Wednesday that she is not running for president, saying, "my family comes first."

She revealed her intentions on a conservative talk-radio show.

In a statement she issued to the Mark Levin Show and read by Levin on the air, Palin said:

"After much prayer and serious consideration, I have decided that I will not be seeking 2012 GOP nomination for president of the United States. As always, my family comes first and obviously Todd and I put great consideration into family life before making this decision."

She added: "I believe that at this time I can be more effective in a decisive role to help elect other true public servants to office — from the nation's governors to congressional seats and the presidency."

In her statement, she said, "It's not about me, it's about all of us who are trying to wake up America."

She added that she will "help coordinate strategies to assist in replacing the president, re-taking the Senate, and maintaining the House."

Guess she's done flogging her book.

I heard a guy thank Steve Jobs for, as a final act, knocking Palin off the newsfeed. (sorry if too soon)

@DaveHolmes: In his final act of benevolent genius, Steve Jobs overshadows Sarah Palin. Rest in peace, you fucking stud.

WELL THANK FUCK, something good came out of this day after all.

Semi OT (it's Palin, so she too sets feminism back): I just reiterated to my mother that I'm never physically giving birth to any spawn and she said, "That's such a waste." SMH.

Yeah, I'm trying to get my husband to understand that I will never be doing that either and it's going pretty sucky because he feels that all women must have a natural inclination to spawn. Not so much for me, it seems. Exciting stuff...

This means she'll go away, right? A presidential run was always the end game, and now she's not running which means she'll stop forever?

That sounds too easy.

She'll be back.
