Lawrence O'Donnell was spot on with his prediction that Donald Trump would pretend he was running for president up until the date that NBC had to announce that his show would be continued in their upcoming lineup and he's spot on here with Sarah Palin's game pretending that she's going to actually throw her hat in the ring for 2012 as well.

As he noted, the minute she announces she's not running, her value for speaking engagements or reality shows gets cut in half at least and there's not a chance in hell she would hold up in a debate with the other candidates.

O'Donnell also pointed out that Uncle Rupert over at Fox already cut loose any of their employees who were actually going to run like Gingrich and Santorum and it should be obvious to our beltway media that both Huckabee and Palin were never going to run since they're both still employed by Fox.

Sadly that isn't going to keep our beltway Villagers from talking about her nonstop as though anyone should take her seriously.

I don't know about the rest of you but I for one will be really happy when Griftie-Half-Term-Governor-Quitter Palin's way past fifteen minutes in the spotlight that she never deserved that McCain heaped upon our country along with Joe-not-a-plumber are finally over and we never have to hear from either of them again. Sadly even if she doesn't run, and I agree with O'Donnell that she won't, I don't think Fox will allow that to happen any time soon.

I'm glad at least to see the likes of O'Donnell call her out for what she is; a grifter that's interested in lining her own pocket and who's main concern is how to make Sarah Palin rich.

Can you help us out?
