Sarah Palin makes America's first ever political bus tour

 Sarah Palin's bus tour around the country is garnering a lot of media attention; proving that Palin is the face of the Republican party.

"Just when many critics had all but dismissed Sarah Palin's political future, saying her negatives are too high, and her ability to address important issues lacking, she has used something as simple as a bus tour to confound them," says Fox News contributor Dr. Charles Dunn.

 Indeed a bus tour is something that no potential political candidate has ever done before. Such a feat would leave any critic of Palin baffled, to be sure. Especially when Palin uses wide-sweeping vagueness to explain what she's doing.

“This isn't a campaign bus  (Opening page of her site- "The 'One Nation Tour' is part of our new campaign..." http://www.sarahpac.com). This is a bus to be able to express to America how much we appreciate our foundation and to invite more people to be interested in all that is good about America and to remind ourselves we don't need to fundamentally transform America, we need to restore what's good about America," said Palin.

 Indeed, Americans should appreciate our foundation and be interested in all that is good and restore what is good. Wow! I just remembered that I also like things that are good and would like to bring back other things that I personally thought were good that aren't really around anymore. And of course get rid of things that I think aren't good. Sarah Palin 2012 - Good.

  Palin's bus tour, according to Dr. Dunn "speaks to the socially and religiously conservative heartbeat of Middle America. Sarah Palin understands what Ronald Reagan understood," Dunn continues, "To defeat Jimmy Carter, who said Americans were in a state of malaise, Reagan optimistically appealed to the potent political power of Middle America embodied in his slogan, 'It's morning in America'."

 Dunn makes a great point here: the heartbeat of the country is in the red states only. So does that mean that the brain of the country lies elsewhere? Also, Palin knows what it takes to defeat black Jimmy Carter.

Dunn continues on to describe Palin's followers.

"They are on the whole patriotic and religious folks who appreciate what Sarah Palin represents. They like to see someone who represents their values making the headlines and forcing the hand of the media moguls and political power brokers."

A rare and intriguing insight here: People like to see people with the same views representing them on a large scale. Who would have thought?

 Dunn claims that Palin's bus tour has thrown a "monkey wrench into the plans of Republican presidential aspirants, who must take her star-power prowess into consideration and adjust their campaigns accordingly."

 He continues to say that whoever wins the Republican nomination "must have the support of Sarah Palin's large and loyal following to win the Presidency," whether or not she runs.

 And of course, any other candidate who decided to use a bus tour would just be copying Palin's originality. Unless she approves of their decision.

 So, in summation, Palin IS the face of the G.O.P. and she is calling the shots.  This must be the case, since as of May 26th former Massachusetts governor, Mitt Romney, leads among candidates with 17% of Republicans and independents supporting him, followed by Palin, former VP candidate, with 15%.
