Sarah Palin is very passionate about Sarah Palin-related things. So, one would think that she'd be positively thrilled to talk about Sarah Palin's endorsement for the Republican nominee. But somehow, not so much…
"My endorsement is going to be with sincerity and enthusiasm and I am just not there yet… with the field as it stands," Palin said. "And there's no need to endorse until that enthusiasm is within me, in my gut."
"As soon as I feel that that person who understands the fiscal crisis especially that America faces and knows what to do about it then I will feel that enthusiasm and I will endorse, but I'm not ready yet," she added…
Palin also left the door open for the possibility that she wouldn't endorse any of the candidates currently in the race–perhaps throwing her support to an as-yet unknown latecomer or third-party candidate. When asked any of the candidates now in the field met her criteria, Palin responded, "I honestly don't know yet."
Look, she probably needs some time to stew this one over. You know, put in some real quality think time! Like, maybe in the back seat of a bus — preferably with her face on the side — driving around the country. For just a couple months or so. Also, cable news green rooms and radio station lobbies. Great places to think.
I have faith that she'll come up with a good endorsement in no time.
