Here Comes Sarah!!!!!
Andrew Malcolm of the LA Times has much more today on exactly what the new Sarah Palin Political Action Committee means.
The surest sign yet that Alaska's Republican Gov. Sarah Palin intends at least to be in position for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination contest.
Like others presumed to have their eye on the party nod -- former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and Arkansas ex-Gov. Mike Huckabee -- she has set up a PAC -- SarahPAC.
The creation of such a financial entity commits her to nothing. But such a political action committee will allow Palin to position herself to compete by legally collecting donations to travel and speak on her own behalf (Iowa is a long snow machine ride from Wasilla).
It'll also permit her to raise and distribute campaign donations to like-minded GOP supporters seeking office. That could earn her some valuable political owsies come campaign time in the Hawkeye state, now less than 29 months away. (Thank goodness you have blogs like this to help keep you ready.)

I think he just coined a term in his post. Have you ever heard of "political owsies" before?
