Sarah Palin – “Not Doing This For Nuttin'”

Posted on

Actually, the quote from Sarah Palin on 2012 was “I’m not doing this for naught.” Here is Wolf Blitzer on CNN mis-reading the Palin interview over at ABC News with Elizabeth Vargas.

Here is the quote that is that is creating a FLAP, apparently within Team McCain.

ELIZABETH VARGAS: If it doesn’t go your way on Tuesday … 2012?

GOV SARAH PALIN: I’m just … thinkin’ that it’s gonna go our way on Tuesday, November 4. I truly believe that the wisdom of … of the people will be revealed on that day. As they enter that voting booth, they will understand the stark contrast between the two tickets. …

VARGAS: But the point being that you haven’t been so bruised by some of the double standard, the sexism on the campaign trail, to say, “I’ve had it. I’m going back to Alaska.”

PALIN: Absolutely not. 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.

Frankly, any observer of American politics can read Palin’s statement as one of stead fast defiance (the ‘Cuda) of the harsh treatment she and her family has received or one of future ambition.

Flap has already written about Palin’s future ambition and her future is bright. This will likely be John McCain’s last campaign win or lose on Tuesday.

So, what is the surprise at Team McCain? The media has been twisting and misconstruing McCain-Palin statements the entire cycle. Flap thinks they are a bit too sensitive.

Sarah Palin was talking about not giving up and slinking back home to Alaska. In other words she was saying: illegitimi non carborundum. Now, if you want to construe an ambitious meaning to her statement…..
