Will Sarah Palin denial now turn to panic?

The horror! The horror! Mr. Kurtz last words
The Wall Street Journal reports today that Sarah Palin might run for president in 2012. The Washington Post headline is “Palin signals she still has White House ambitions, stokes speculation with latest moves.” The NY Times reports today that “Signs Grow That Palin May Run.” From the NYTs:
Sarah Palin is fortifying her small staff of advisers, buying a house in Arizona — where associates have said she could base a national campaign — and reviving her schedule of public appearances. The moves are the most concrete signals yet that Ms. Palin, the former governor of Alaska, is seriously weighing a Republican presidential bid.
A new Gallup survey out today, completed after decisions by Mitch Daniels, Mike Huckabee, and Donald Trump not to run for president, shows Palin in second place, close behind leader Mitt Romney.
It may be that the MSM no longer reports news, but denies news. This was reported first by Real Clear Politics and repeated by Drudge. It has been said here from the beginning: It is now and always has been about Sarah Palin. On the Republican side, the rest is side meat.
