I know, you all are shaking your head and asking why this is on the top list of videos when Sarah Palin isn't running for President. At least, she's not "officially" running for President like the others, who are fiercely engaged in nattering with each other in far too many ridiculous televised debates.

The video begins to answer the question, as does this post by Dave Neiwert earlier this year, but here's the short version: Sarah Palin believes she has been called by God to be President of the United States. She believes God works in unconventional ways, and she is therefore not bound by conventional means.

Sarah Palin's fondest hope is that the Republican party will cry out to her to save them from the current crop of front-runners. This is already surfacing a bit in Iowa, where her supporters are mounting a campaign to show up at the caucuses and "vote rogue."

Here's the ad:

"Are you unhappy with the current GOP field?" says a narrator in a radio ad. "Let me tell you something, you are not alone. Join thousands of Iowans as we vote rogue. It's the caucus for Sarah Palin on January 3. Let Iowa and the entire country know we want real leadership and real reform in DC. So come on Iowa, vote rogue on January 3!"

If the GOP nomination goes to a brokered convention or an outright floor fight, look for Palin to try and ride in on her white horse. She longs for it.
