Sarah Palin told Fox News she would be making her decision on a presidential run by the end of September.
“The two American hikers have been released from Iran and they’re trying to reintroduce them to American culture. Right now, they’re in a screening room outside of Washington, going through Jennifer Aniston comedies.”
“There was no communication for the two years they were captive. There were a couple of emails from Anthony Weiner, but that’s it.”
“Arnold Schwarzenegger has commissioned a sculptor to create seven larger-than-life statues of himself in a Speedo. So I guess he’s taking the divorce well. … They’re eight feet tall and made of bronze and horse steroids.”
”I voted for Obama because he was black, not because I agreed with him. I barely agreed with him that he was black.”

“It was sweet to elect the first black president, but what would be even sweeter would be to see the first black president kicked out of office by the second black president. It could happen, he [Herman Cain] just kicked Rick Perry’s Caucasian ass up and down the state of Florida, proving that politics sometimes is like a porn movie. … You know, a pizza guy shows up out of nowhere and (does) you.”

This week she hits a home run.
Congress should suspend its elections next year to concentrate on fixing the economy.
“I think we ought to suspend, perhaps, elections for Congress for two years and just tell them we won’t hold it against them, whatever decisions they make, to just let them help this country recover.
