The BBC interviews Sarah Palin

The BBC went to Alaska and did a series of interviews with Sarah Palin and her parents Chuck and Sally Heath. The two big take aways from the interviews are are these quotes.
Speaking in Alaska, the state's former governor said if she did decide to run she would be fully committed.
But the cost together with whether voters were ready to make a win a reality, were issues she still needed to think about.
"Obama has already said he's going to spend a billion dollars (£615.4m) on this race, so money is certainly going to be a consideration," Sarah Palin told me.
"And just the idea of whether the American electorate is ready for someone a bit unconventional, who is willing to tell it as she sees it, not be beholden to special interest or such obsessive partisanship as to let a political machine get in the way of doing what's right for the voters."
In the kitchen of their Wasilla home, among an extraordinary collection of animal skins, skulls and bones, the spoils of a lifetime spent hunting and fishing, they told me that their whole family has faced death threats.
"As a mother I do have concerns about her safety and that of the kids... she knows how I feel, that it's risky," Sally said.
Palin's father Chuck said a man recently had sent the family photocopies of a receipt for a gun he had bought, together with a photocopy of a one-way ticket to Alaska.
The family had laughed it off, but the man subsequently turned up in the state and was arrested by the FBI, Chuck said.
"We sleep with the guns," Palin's father admitted.
Regarding the first quote, no one should be surprised that Sarah Palin would run an unconventional campaign. Between her large and devoted following and the establishment's dislike of her, an unconventional path to the White House is tailor made for Palin.

I fully expect Palin to run because she is a true believer. Palin really does love America and as such will not sit idly by and watch it falter under Obama or a less than true Republican candidate. The real question folks should be asking is; will Palin run to win the White House or will Palin run to shape the election? By simply being in the nomination process with her mega-megaphone Palin pretty much guarantees that whoever the Republican candidate is, he or she will have to sing the song of commonsense conservatism.

Regarding Mr. Heath's comment, I feel for the Palins. I cannot imagine living day to day life under the never ending hatred of the left. Despite the endless talk of "civility", the left is a black hearted and hateful lot. They wish death upon their opponents as easily as normal folks say "good day". How is it possible for the Palins to simply go about their day to day lives without fear? Listen to the white hot incoherent bile that a PDS sufferer spews towards the Palins and it is no wonder the Heaths sleep with guns.

For the life of me, I don't understand the left's hatred for this woman. I know she's the antithesis of all they hold dear (love of country, Christianity, the Constitution, responsibility to name a few) but their hatred for W pales when compared to their hatred of Palin.

She has already stated that if she runs, she means to win, and I believe she WILL win. She's the only one strong enough to lead this country back to its founding vision, and Americans know that. She has been vilified so badly that voters are concerned that she may be unelectable. The lies that she is unintelligent have hit their mark. But once she announces to run, the public will get to meet her directly, not through the press...they cannot filter out her message anymore at that point, and voters will see the lies for what they are. She'll run, and she'll win...because we need her.
