(Newser) – Sarah Palin has zero chance of winning in 2012, says John Ziegler, the maker of the "very first pro-Sarah documentary." Writing for the Daily Caller, Ziegler explains that despite "being approached by Sarah’s husband Todd only a month ago," you won't find him working on any Palin 2012 campaign—and "I’m pretty convinced she is running." And that's bad news, because her "doing so will damage the prospects of any conservative defeating Barack Obama in 2012." Plus, writes Ziegler, "there is absolutely no way that she can be elected." And he's told her this, "more than once."

Why is she unelectable? For one thing, Palin’s "entire operation is increasingly managed like a CIA field office," and a disorganized one at that. "She’s adopted a bunker mentality" and "she’s trusting the wrong people, some of whom I know are simply exploiting her," Ziegler notes. Despite his loyalty to the Palin cause, Ziegler writes, he himself has been blown off numerous times. "If Sarah Palin still is the person I thought I knew, then she will do what is best for her cause and country by sitting this one out."
