In the closest she’s ever come to announcing a presidential run, Sarah Palin fueled more speculation about a potential bid yesterday at the Long Island Association’s annual luncheon at the Crest Hollow County Club in Woodbury.
Clad in a dark skirt-suit and leopard-print pumps, the former Alaska governor strutted. “There’s no one more qualified for that type of multitasking job than a woman, a mom,” she said of the presidency.
“As for potentially an unconventional run and an unconventional cycle, that’s what going rogue is all about,” the Tea Party princess added.
With daughter Bristol at her side, Mama Grizzly wowed the over 1,000 guests in attendance in between sips of Coke Zero and bites of marinated grilled chicken and orzo salad.
In a broad 64-minute interview with LIA president Kevin Law, the former TLC reality TV star touched on everything from the national debt to gun control to even breast-feeding.
“No wonder Michelle Obama’s telling everybody, ‘You’d better breast-feed your baby.’ Yeah, you’d better, because the price of milk is so high right now!” Palin said to thunderous applause.
There was no sign of husband Todd, but outside the country club a dozen Tea Party supporters waved signs and flags when Palin drove by in a black limousine.
Palin may be a GOP superstar in some Republican circles, but she’s not a hit with all right-wingers. Palin was a no-show in Washington last week at the Conservative Political Action Conference.
