Sarah Palin Rumor Of The Day

Ok, this is more like the rumor of a couple of days ago, but it's interesting enough to talk about.

From Hollywood Life:

Sarah has said all along she’s going to launch her prez pursuit on her favorite Anchorage radio show, Bob & Mark. Guess when she’s on the show next?

Believe it or not, it’s already high time for presidential hopefuls to kick off their campaigns even though the election isn’t until November 2012 — and we’ve connected some dots that strongly suggest where and when Sarah Palin will be announcing. has learned that Palin has booked an appearance in April on The Bob and Mark Show on 106.5 KWHL-FM in Anchorage. Sarah has said all along — including on the final episode of her TLC show Sarah Palin’s Alaska — that she would announce her candidacy on the radio via Bob and Mark.

While the exact date hasn’t been confirmed, we’re told that with Sarah’s schedule, her appearance on the show — especially booked so far in advance — can mean only one thing: That she’ll be kicking off her campaign on the radio.

And with Sarah hiring a chief of staff, Michael Glassner, and the impending entrance of potential competitors Tim Pawlenty, governor of Minnesota, and Mitt Romney, ex-gov of Massachusetts, the time is certainly ripe.

Calls to Palin’s lawyer weren’t returned.

If you think it’s awfully early for the candidates to get started, remember that Barack Obama announced his candidacy in February 2007. At the time, it was a surprisingly early announcement almost 20 months in advance of the 2008 election.

But, then again, look where Obama lives now.

We've got some inquiries out trying to confirm Sarah has "booked" time with Bob and Mark. So far, can't confirm anything.

It's still fun to speculate on this, especially since Sarah has indeed promised to announce her candidacy on the show. Most of us heard this when she said it, and since Sarah was an executive producer of her TLC travel/adventure series, and had editorial control of the content, one can make of it what one will, that Sarah included her radio interview in the final show of the series, which was leading up to "what's next."

For those that may not be familiar, Sarah is a frequent call in guest on the Bob and Mark show, as are her daughters Piper and Bristol. Again, we don't even know if this rumor is true, but if it is, the very fact a date was actually booked, certainly makes one think something is up.

Sarah will be in India in March speaking at an important international policy conference. Could be she'll just want to talk about that. None the less, it's fun to contemplate what this advance booking may be all about!
