Former GOP vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin joined conservative talk show host Mark Levin on Sunday and had some surprising things to say! When asked if she was planning on running for public office again, the former Alaska governor shocked listeners with her reply.
Palin made her remarks to new Fox News host Mark Levin after he questioned her if she was still glad that she ran for vice president in 2008 on Senator McCain’s ticket.
Here’s the scoop from The Hill:
“Oh yes. I would do it again in a heartbeat,” said Palin. “I will push back harder on some of those who were trying to mold me into something that I was not during the campaign. I would’ve pushed back and gotten more truth out there, but yes.”
The idea that aides to McCain restrained Palin during the campaign was a major subject of the book and film about the 2008 campaign, “Game Change.”
Palin told Levin that she was surprised the McCain campaign didn’t offer more of a defense for her against what she described as unfair treatment by the media.
“I was surprised because in Alaska, as I mentioned, my ratings were very high, things were going well in the court of public opinion, so I was mostly shocked that the campaign itself didn’t defend against a lot of the lies that were being spewed during the campaign,” she said. “And then when that narrative was created, they created a character of Sarah Palin and the Palin family.
“Once the bell is rung, it’s hard to unring,” she added.
Palin, 54, was the keynote speaker at a GOP fundraising dinner at President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort last month, where she addressed the Palm Beach County Republican Party during its annual Lincoln Fundraising Dinner.
We personally would love to see Mrs. Palin run for higher office. Can’t you see her in the House or the Senate? It’s almost surprising that President Trump hasn’t offered her a job at a federal agency or in the White House. Well, who knows, maybe he did and she didn’t accept?
Although that seems unlikely, we sure would love to see her return to public life…
