But the Alaska governor, who has been promoted as a possible candidate in some republican quarters, has not yet decided to mount a campaign.
She said: 'I'm like, OK, God, if there is an open door for me somewhere, this is what I always pray, I'm like, don't let me miss the open door.
'Show me where the open door is.'
And in a perfect display of how the media seem congenitally incapable of getting Palin's religious rhetoric, note how the Daily Mail headlined the piece:
God will show me a door to the White House in 2012
She didn't say that. She made a perfectly normal conditional statement.
It's like there's something about Palin that makes reporters just lose any sense at all when covering her.
