Marion man already driving around with Sarah Palin 2012 poster

Harlan Muth isn’t organizing Sarah Palin’s presidential campaign, but pledges as soon as someone does, “I’ll be with ’em.

In the meantime, the Marion maintenance contractor is turning heads with his “Sarah Palin 2012” poster prominently displayed on his van.

“It’s getting a fantastic response,” Muth, 63, said. “So many people give me the thumbs up or honk when they see it. Some people get out of their cars and ask me where they can get a poster.”

Muth, who spent 23 years in the Air Force before settling down in Marion, couldn’t find a Palin 2012 sign, so he had a local shop make one for him.

He put it on his van between the November 2008 election and Barack Obama’s inauguration. He plans to display it indefinitely.

“A lot of people have had their fill of Obama-ism,” he said, adding that after seeing his sign some people tell him they are beginning to regret their vote for the president. “They’ll say, ‘Isn’t it a shame what he’s doing?’”

Palin, who has decided to resign as governor of Alaska on July 26, is generating speculation she will use the attention she received as John McCain’s running mate last year as a springboard to her own presidential campaign. A number of draft Palin web sites have sprouted. Earlier this year Iowans received phone calls asking if they had a favorable opinion of Palin and whether they agreed with her on several issues. Palin’s SarahPAC said it was not responsible for the calls.

There’s no particular issue that attracts Muth to Palin. He wants to see her run because “she has her head screwed on straight.”

“Some of the others ought to take lessons from her,” he said, adding that as president, “she’d do it right.”

Not surprisingly, Muth’s sentiment isn’t shared by everyone. Some people driving by his house honk and scream at him when they see the sign.

“They’re too yellow to confront me, I guess,” he said.

Muth, who does home and commercial maintenance, says no one has turned him away when they’ve seen the poster on his van.

    just a few thoughts on Sarah

    first ……… how many women in the entire world have her name recognition and her popularity ?? can anyone name ten off the top of their head? She has the same kind of charisma that Princess DIANA had , and she is not going to go away anytime soon .
    I think the first thing she could do is put her prodigious power toward calling the press and public on the abuse of her children , and make it completely and unequivocally unacceptable to continue to use her children or any children as targets in the media . Hell, I would even seek a law in that regard , the same way children are protected from sexual abuse. No child should be subjected to abuse in the press, for political or any other reason .
    I would say , why it has been allowed to go this far is beyond my understanding ; but unfortunately it is not. Evidently even child abuse is ok if you are a political opponent of the current administration.
    After that , after protecting her children … for Sarah , the sky is the limit , because just as the public cuold not get their fill of DIANA , they will not tire of Sarah , as they already have of Bo and Mo ( boy that is gonna tick them off too LOL ).

      Oh, BO cannot stand any competition on the celebrity front. It makes him nuts to have someone else’s face on TV.

      Did anyone but me notice that at first, Hillary was very visible as SOS, lots of face time, etc? Then all of a sudden BO has sidelined her a lot. Wanna know why?

      That started happening just after that poll came out showing that his approval numbers were dropping, but hers were up around 60 – 70%, and foreign leaders and the press were sayings lots of nice things about her professionalism and work ethic.

      BO cannot STAND for anyone, esp a woman, to outshine him in the spotlights, or receive any adulation at all. He loses his shit when that happens. Sarah is going to eat at his gut like a bad ulcer.

        WMCB, I am one of the minority of women that did not think she (HRC) should have taken the SOS job from Obama. I feel that Condi Rice was more visible in that role, granted there was 9/11.

      If she leaves who else would the liberals pick on?

    It’s great to see an Iowan that hasn’t lost their head. This guy was right about saying that a lot of people are going to be regretting that Obama was in office. I’m hoping 2012 will be similar to 1980!

    I’ve got my fingers crossed Sarah will run for President in 2012. She’s the only one I can see who can beat Obama in the next election. Sarah is not like the other politicians, she’s one of us.
