Will Palin use 100th birthday of Reagan to announce for the presidency?

Sarah Palin will announce her candidacy for President in Tampico, Illinois (or maybe Dixon or Eureka) on February 6, 2011, Dutch Reagan's 100th birthday. That is not just my prediction/fantasy; others thought the same after her Wednesday address in Chicagoland's suburban Rosemont, where she unabashedly took charge of the then erupting Highland Park school debacle.

Palin fired up the Chicago crowd, citing Ronald Reagan as a driving influence in her life and political career.

She displayed leadership and command presence. She is a winner, and she is on a mission from God (Chicago Blues Bros. reference). Her rugged determination is unquestionable: she can field dress a moose (a la Teddy Roosevelt). Her Reaganesque smile when she talked about the Highland Park father standing up to the Liberal school government bullies reflects her oft stated guiding principle: "There is no retreat, just reloading." Her Dad taught her that years ago.

Sarah's November book will set forth the platform she intends to advance, centered around the notion of American exceptionalism. Unapologetically!

Friday at the Susan B Anthony List breakfast, Sarah said she feels "a connection to that tough, gun-totin' Annie Oakley feminism." Considering the present condition of our country, a more apt comparison would be Sarah as an American Joan of Arc.

A Palin announcement on the Gipper's 100th birthday would be that day's Alaska-icing on the Conservative cake. Statues of Ronald (Dutch) Reagan will be unveiled in London, U.K., and in Tampico, Ill. The Tampico statue will be erected in Reagan Park across from Dutch's Diner (best pies in the Midwest). Lowell Park will install a replica of Dutch's lifeguard stand/chair where teen-aged Ronald Reagan saved 77 lives as the lifeguard on the Rock River's right bank, notching his log-chair for each save. Eureka College, Reagan's alma mater, will conduct a program reflecting on his Midwestern roots and values.

The Gipper's big 100th birthday falls on Super Bowl Sunday, 2/6/11! Parties everywhere! What better day for Sarah to announce her candidacy!
