Gateway Pundit Creates Movement to Draft Palin as RNC Chair

Um, wow. Here's some highlights from his post::
The bottom line is this…
America is under attack. The progressive left is attempting to forever alter the foundation of this great nation with their record deficits, record spending, record unemployment, corruption, thuggery, assault on liberty and socialist policies. The Obama-Pelosi Regime must be stopped before they destroy this great nation. Republicans need a great and dynamic personality to lead the party in a vigorous offensive against the Socialist agenda of the Progressive Democrat movement. We don’t have time to waste and we can’t afford to lose this battle against the immoral statists destroying our country.

Michael Steele has made too many critical missteps and has failed to lead the party against the radical Socialist agenda of the Progressive Democrat movement. The failure of Chairman Steele to successfully sell Liberty over Socialism, and to cultivate and facilitate those future candidates who can, is emblematic of the dysfunction of the Republican party, a dysfunction which has over the past four years led the party to near-ruin. We need a true and tested leader.
Some of his commenters are excited at the prospect of "making liberals' heads explode," but others are upset because Sarah Palin is way too awesome to be an RNC chair. And others are convinced that this is all an elaborate ploy by Mitt Romney to distract Palin with a shiny object so she forgets to run for President in 2012.

I'm not sure what I think about the idea. On the one hand, I like the idea of Palin scaring away all of the moderates and people who value intelligence. On the other hand, I remember from the last elections that Palin had a way of riling up the ugliest parts of the right-wing movement, and I sure don't think we need any more of that in our politics. Anyway, it will be interesting to see what comes out of this.
