A Palin 2012 Fantasy

It could happen...

From the Conservatives For Palin blog....

Twice in the last month we've had the sincere and unbelievable privilege of watching the Palins up close as the Governor delivered two important addresses in our home state of Illinois.

In both speeches, Palin cited President Ronald Reagan as a driving influence in her life and political career, drawing great attention to the fact Reagan was born and educated in Illinois -- the state in which we believe Palin will officially launch her 2012 presidential bid on February 6th, 2011...Reagan's 100th birthday. She'll do it - we betcha - in either Tampica or Eureka, two cities in our state intimately connected to Reagan. And she'll do it in the face of all the naysayers and talking heads in the Lamestream Media who obsessively strive every day to destroy her, to ridicule her, to mock her, and to tear her down. Because the media wants Barack Obama to win a second term, and they know Sarah Palin is the only thing that can stop that.
