Forget what the Mayans say, magnetic pole reversal, or solar flares for 2012. If these two horsemen of the Apocalypse join forces to take the White House in 2012, the end is near…

Don’t rule it out, because apparently Palin wouldn’t either in an interview with Newsmax:
Palin initially chuckled when Newsmax broached the idea. But then she had some serious words of praise for the popular Fox personality.
“I can envision a couple of different combinations, if ever I were to be in a position to really even seriously consider running for anything in the future, and I’m not there yet,” Palin tells Newsmax. “But Glenn Beck I have great respect for. He’s a hoot. He gets his message across in such a clever way. And he’s so bold — I have to respect that. He calls it like he sees it, and he’s very, very, very effective.”
This is an interesting thing to think about. Palin/Beck could unite the conservative anti-Obama movement and basically form a Tea Party ticket that would vent the anti-stimulus, anti-Democratic health care reform, anti-cap-and-trade, sentiment that’s been brewing with a firestorm of angry, populist rallies. It would basically double the phenomenon that happened at Palin’s rallies on the trail for McCain.
Then again, Palin not ruling it out isn’t exactly a big deal: it’s pretty improbable that she would come out and say, “No, I would not run with Glenn Beck.” No reason to disappoint their shared supporters.
