Palin's Cat Toy

The Washington Post's Jonathan Capehart tells us, again:
... The real signal that Palin isn’t running — and, thus, playing with the political press like a cat toy — was highlighted during a rhetorical victory lap by Lawrence O’Donnell on May 16, the day Donald Trump bowed out of running for president.

According to O’Donnell, the March 2 announcement by Fox News that the contributor contracts of Newt Gingrich and former senator Rick Santorum (R-Pa.) had been suspended because of their plans to run for president should have been the tip off. Palin and former governor Mike Huckabee (R-Ark.) were rumored then to be considering a campaign. Yet, their names were noticeably absent [from the list of suspended Fox News contributors]. ...
There is video of O'Donnell's "victory lap" at Capehart's column (link above).

Palin may be playing a very dangerous game with the political press, especially so when part of that press employs her. Is Palin stringing-along Fox?

Capehart's column also has a link to his Palin is not running for president column of April 13th.

But then what is this all about? Is she trying to rewrite herself so that she can seem like a valid candidate? I guess she feels that she won't get fully vetted if there's a fluff piece to rewrite history. http://tinyurl.com/3kznnzd

Here's another link to Palin's Secret Weapon: New Film to Premiere in June, which was mentioned, above.

I don't know. Apparently Palin isn't paying for it and has no editorial say. The movie may be as bad as "Plan 9 From Outer Space" and "Dementia 13." Will anyone but devout palinbots want to see it?
