As John Boehner counts votes and has one-on-one meetings, Sarah issues a veiled threat to the House Tea Party Caucus from the outskirts of Facebook.

P.S. Everyone I talk to still believes in contested primaries.

Of course they do, because the people Sarah talks to don’t have to actually govern the country and be held accountable for what happens with the decisions they make.

On a day when presidential candidate Michele Bachmann delivers her crazy at the Press Club, Sarah is relegated to talking about the “little people” way “out here in proverbial politico flyover country.”

Irrelevancy never looked so obvious.
