Conservative site Red State has been posting hourly updates about Sarah Palin not announcing her candidacy for president:
So today, by her own admission since July, this is the date Sarah Palin should announce. Throughout the day we will monitor whether or not there is an announcement.
And yes, “drop dead date” is Sarah Palin’s own word choice. It is not the media’s word choice or her fans’ word choice. It is Governor Palin’s own word choice
As of midnight tonight, Wasilla time, there should be no more speculation about Sarah Palin running for president.
