Sarah Palin To Join Arizona Gov. Brewer In "March Against Child Abuse". Palin Qualifies As Arizona Resident For Senate Appointment If That Arises.

Arizona Governor Jan Brewer and Gov. Sarah Palin appear to have a warm relationship as evinced by Gov. Brewer highlighting she is being joined by Sarah in a "March Against Child abuse" this weekend.

I reproduce an earlier post below which shows that Gov. Palin has, according to Arizona law, residency and thus would qualify to be appointed to a Senate seat should Senator McCain choose to step down before his term expires. If he chose to serve out his full term, which Sarah assisted him in being re-elected to, she would qualify as a resident to run for a full term.

    It has arisen on the Blogosphere that Senator John McCain might  in due course vacate his seat. According to the Twitterverse the next step would be for Republican Governor of Arizona Jan Brewer to appoint Sarah Palin to finish the balance of McCain's term.

    It is easy to see how this concept has been given wings!
    Here is a typical leftist comment,followed by the facts which 
    could give the premise a solid basis, advising that McCain 
    might hand over to Palin which sort of comment is clearly the inspiration for similar ones which have appeared.

    "Voters have just recalled a bumbling state senator. I certainly hope we don't get the opportunity to have to recall 
    someone like Palin, too.
    Sen. McCain lost the election because of his choice of Palin as his running mate, in my opinion. 
    I'm wondering if he might not just decide to retire and endorse her for his seat....
    Or, has someone whispered in his ear recently, "Oh My God, Dad, she really is such a twit"...
    Inquiring minds..."

    Sarah Palin  has purchased a large house in Arizona

    She is a legal resident under Arizona law (proof of this is
    provided at the end of this post).

    Jan Brewer and Palin have had a friendly relationship, both 
    being clearly seen as conservatives in a clearly conservative 
    state. Palin campaigned for Brewer AT THIS VIDEO LINK

    As far as McCain is concerned, there is no doubt whatsoever 
    that he is committed to supporting his choice of Palin in 2008, something he has repeated consistently.

    There is no doubt whatsoever that Palin clearly has, a she has expressed consistently, a deep and abiding fondness for John McCain. Beyond the obvious fact that he lifted her from 
    relative obscurity to having a massive national profile, there appears to be a genuine fondness and appreciation between 

    She of course, to much criticism from the right, not only 
    endorsed his re-election but actively campaigned for him in 2010

    Under what circumstances might McCain vacate his seat?
    On a maudlin note, it was speculated that age and or health 
    might be a factor.

    If, for whatever reason the seat became available it would be 
    of tremendous advantage to Palin if she was contemplating a 
    run for the presidency in 2016.

    She would have a public platform, She would not have to 
    commit to re-election in 2016 given that it would have been an appointed, not elected position she was undertaking.

    Perhaps the greatest motivation for McCain would be the 
    incredible opportunity to stick it to the media by having Palin, whom they so harshly attacked, not only succeed him but 
    use his senate seat as a launching pad to the presidency!
