Why Mona Charen doesn't want Sarah Palin to run in 2012 (Updated)

Too smooth...
Syndicated columnist Mona Charen, lists several talking points as alleged reasons why she thinks that the 2008 GOP vice presidential candidate should not make a 2012 run for the White House. But she omitted what may be the real reason why Charen is so opposed to a Sarah Palin presidential candidacy:

Because in MonaWorld, Mitt Romney is "near perfection" as a candidate:
"You have to admire the near perfection of Mitt Romney as a candidate. It’s no easy thing to find someone with such poise, movie-star looks, high intelligence, family stability, and record of accomplishment. He is accused of being too smooth by those of us less gifted by nature."
Riiiight, Gov. Romney is such a perfect candidate that he couldn't even beat the weak John McCain in the 2008 GOP primaries, despite having raised over $90 million in campaign cash, $35 million of it from his own personal fortune.

Update: According to Donald Douglas, Mona has jumped bandwagons. We have to assume that storied Romney near-perfection wasn't quite perfect enough. Now she's backing Mitch Daniels. Why, the Indiana governor must be even nearer to perfection than her former fave. Go figure...
