Colorado-based pro-Palin blogger Adam Brickley has his eyes on a new prize

Adam Brickley as he appeared a few months back on The Colbert Report.

Blogger Adam Brickley was credited in many quarters -- including Comedy Central's The Colbert Report -- with helping Alaska governor Sarah Palin rise to national prominence via his website. (See his appearance on Stephen Colbert's signature show by visiting our September 8 blog "Colorado-based Pro-Palin Blogger Adam Brickley Hits The Colbert Report.") So what's he planning to do for his next act now that his veep dreams for SarahCuda, as he calls her, have fallen short? That question is answered in his election-night post "Draft Sarah 2012." Yep, Brickley is already on the bandwagon for a Palin presidential run. Read his rationale below. -- Michael Roberts

Draft Sarah 2012

Well, looks like it's over. McCain just gave a very gracious concession speech, and we should congratulate him and Sarah on a great campaign. We give our best wishes to President-elect Obama, but at the same time we officially inagurate the "Draft Sarah 2012" movement. As far as we are concerned, victory is still in sight and there will be no settling for second banana next time.

You've all done a wonderful job and I like to thank all of you for reading and commenting during the past year. For as much as I have received much credit for this movement, it would have gone nowhere without you, my readers. I look forward to continuing to work with you.

Our prayers are with Governor Palin, and God Bless America.
