This is one of those cases where you honestly can't believe that someone could say something this dumb and believe it:

The former Alaska governor and 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee notably declined to rule out a presidential run in 2016, first telling CNN that "anything in this life, in this world is possible." 
"Anything is possible for an American," she said. "And I don't discount any idea or plan that at this point isn't in my control."

If you're going to deflect a question, lady, that's fine, but for the great love of crap, please don't get on your high horse about how "anything is possible for an American." In a time when plenty of Americans are finding that basic things like paying their bills or staying in their homes are in fact not possible, that sounds both out of touch as well as downright patronizing. It's one thing if you're a random sports star who's expected to throw out trite nonsense, but when you're talking about mulling a Presidential run, let's try to get beyond, "We live in America, Billy! You can be anything you want to be."

Palin, be coy if you want, but try to tone down the cheese. Some of us are allergic.
