Sarah Palin's Folly: Stumping For John McCain (Does Personal Loyalty Trump Conservatism?)
Policial Insomniac ^ | 03/28/2010 | Dan Cleary

Posted on 03/28/2010 6:05:44 PM PDT by SeekAndFind

One of my very favorite bloggers on the Right - Powerline's John Hinderaker - wrote a post earlier today entitled 'Biker Girl Campaigns for McCain'. By Hinderaker's own admission, his sole motivation for writing it was to show a perfectly gratuitous photograph of Palin looking great in a black leather biker jacket on the campaign trail.

No complaints there.

However, I have a bone to pick with the rest of John's comments:

Sarah Palin was in Arizona yesterday, campaigning for John McCain in his primary contest against former Congressman J.D. Hayworth. This was an appropriate demonstration of loyalty toward the man who opened the door to fame and fortune for her. Beyond that, Palin's support McCain is right on the merits and displays her almost unerring judgment in political matters.

Like most conservatives, I sometimes disagree with John McCain, and on those occasions he can be an infuriating opponent. But he describes himself as a "proud conservative," and that's how he votes a large majority of the time. Moreover, while he is an imperfect Republican, McCain is a great man. He is a warrior, one of the staunchest characters ever to participate in politics, a modern-day Andrew Jackson. We need him. If the Republican tent ever grows too small to contain the likes of John McCain, we are in deep trouble.

Moreover, McCain was the party's Presidential nominee just two years ago. The last thing Republicans need to do is to start eating our own, like the Democrats when they drummed Vice-Presidential nominee Joe Lieberman out of their party.

Now, Sarah Palin endorsing John McCain per se is understandable. I still don't like it one bit, but I'll cut her some slack. Remember, she threw in with McCain before conservative J.D. Hayworth entered the race. And with McCain expecting only token opposition from the Democrats in the general election, he was for a time the most conservative man in Arizona's U.S. Senate race - if only technically and by default.

BUT...J.D. Hayworth is in the race now. He is a far preferable choice than McCain for conservatives on many issues, particularly immigration. Meanwhile, Palin has transitioned from merely supporting McCain (presumably out of a sense of loyalty) to actively stumping for the guy.

I thought Palin was supposed to be helping elect conservatives - not campaigning against them.

Furthermore, in this instance Palin is supporting the very man who deserves unique (though not exclusive) blame for putting Barack Obama in the White House, for the following three reasons (at least):

1. McCain-Feingold. The effect of this now officially unconstitutional campaign finance 'reform' legislation was to allow 'non-partisan' (read: radical left) outfits like MoveOn.org to thrive and to bestow massive political influence upon filthy rich liberal donors like George Soros. Think that played a role in Obama's victory?

2. Comprehensive Immigration Reform (aka Amnesty for Illegal Aliens). Read this and you'll get a sense of how McCain's convoluted stance on illegal immigration lost him the conservative vote in droves in 2008. Think that played a role in Obama's victory?

3. The Bank Bailouts of September 2008. McCain went out of his way to put himself on basically the same page as Barack Obama when it came to bailing out big banks. In an election year that favored any warm body the Democrats ended up nominating, this gave voters one less reason to not vote for Barack Obama. Think that played a role in Obama's victory?

Don't get me wrong - I'd probably still support John McCain vs. 'unopposed' or 'garden variety Democrat.' Probably. But J.D. Hayworth is a no-brainer for conservatives vis-a-vis John McCain, and one has to assume Palin would be in Hayworth's corner were it not for the fact that she was McCain's hand-picked running mate in 2008.

So I'll ask the question: Does personal loyalty trump conservative principles for Sarah Palin?

If McCain showed up as my XO I would have had him gone in about 30 days. He’s a big talker but a total pussy. I would never let him try to direct real warriors. Real warriors are already motivated, they don’t need some two bit cheese stick talking to them.

WORD!!!

There is no conservative principle that says “Don’t campaign for your former running mate who is running on a conservative platform, if his opponent is more conservative during the off-season.”

Palin’s conservative record is unblemished.

You’re not going to insult us in to defending McCain. You’ve got Palin for that. Live with it.

We don't defend McCain, we defend Sarah Palin. She is under attack on FR but the rest of the nation sees her differently.

Photobucket

Tens of thousands..young and old...show up in the middle of the desert (and I do mean middle of the desert) to see her.

Her detractors on FR look silly and side with the libs.

There are many conservatives who have supported RINOs and are currently doing so.

I want to see your list of who you are withdrawing support for. Rubio, Hunter, Tancredo, DeMint, Ann Coulter, Bachmann, Hayworth, Arpaio?

As you see, this argument against Palin doesn’t work.

Nope. The fact that someone else does not have integrity does not mean you have the right not to display good character yourself.

You’ve never kept your promise to a person who disappointed you? Who let you down? Sarah is living out her Christian character. I think she is wise in this case (not that I like Juan!). It will, however, redound to her benefit. If nothing else, God will see from heaven and pour out His blessings on her. :-)

Sarah’s most vociferous and prideful hater on the whole of FR is a PAULTARD who has no skin in the Republican party.

(courtesy ping to the hater)

He is the follower of a real RINO in the true sense of the meaning.

Arizona will take care of its own primary election. Seems to me Arizona voters best know both candidates and it’s a fact the primary voters represent only up to 16% of the voters who vote in the November elections. IOW, only MOTIVATED voters, which would seem to favor JD’s voters.

At a university I attended, a women's studies instructor talked about strategies for robbing the "good old boys" and taking their companies away from them. Too many students in departments not related to women's studies were subjected to that kind of speech.

I am confused by your question.
Some of the people are not politicians - so nobody votes for them.

The others are not running in Alaska, so, again, I would not have an opportunity to vote for them.

I don’t bother to watch AnnC, she is both predictable and frankly, boring - ditto for Hannity and the toad Bill (big moutn) O’really.

Didn’t vote for McLame. Sara is not running for anything, so - once more - no vote for her.

I understand that the “rally” in Tucson was a bust. Some folks showed up, after sara left, the show was over - about 15 min.

I don’t live in Az anymore, but if I did, I would not vote for John. The talk radio fellow is unk to me- so I guess we will have to wait to see how it all turns out.

Just listening to John Batchelor on WABC.

Batchelor being facetious said looking at the photo of Sarah yesterday at Searchlight, there were only 16 people there, the rest were cardboard cutouts.
Mocking the bashers.

Is that this rally?

ARIZONA DAILY STAR;
“An overflow crowd at the Pima County Fairgrounds, along with a national audience on multiple cable news channels, saw Sarah Palin stump for her former running mate U.S. Sen. John McCain.

Palin, dressed in a black leather jacket with zippers, took the stage about 45 minutes late, introducing McCain to a crowd that had swelled to about 5,000 for the event at the fairgrounds, 11300 S. Houghton Road.”
“People wanting to get a good look at the duo lined up as early as 9 a.m. “

I was told the ‘rally’ fizzled after sara left. The cops (Pima county) were on hand to ‘control the crowd’ were they for about 15 min or so.

Not having attended, I have to take the feedback of others who live in the AO.

5K out of muni of a million, pretty small. I’m sure they all had fun tho, the wx was nice.

Keeping a promise to a scoundrel, though? This particular kind of scoundrel works to defeat Americans, republicans, conservatives at every chance he finds. If he was a Democrat it would be expected. By allowing citizenship to millions of illegals and more to come, he would destroy the country; Cap n Tax would break businesses & consumers alike; his McCain-Feingold violated the First Amendment until the SCOTUS overturned it; his wife and slut daughter promote "gay" marraige and all rights for homosexuals and he would appease them in time and inflict that upon us and the military. No, not NO BUT HELL, NO would I keep a promise to a man like that. God would understand and nod his approval.

Sarah must be incredibly naive.

It appears that you either missed or misunderstood the original. Here it is. And "undocumented" means illegal.

Sarah Palin Is Pro Amnesty For Illegal Aliens - Univision Interview [Old news, 2008]
Diggers Realm ^ | October 24, 2008

Univision: Do you then favor an amnesty for the 12 or 13 million undocumented immigrants?
Sarah Palin: No, I do not. I do not. Not total amnesty. You know, people have got to follow the rules. They've got to follow the bar, and we have got to make sure that there is equal opportunity and those who are here legally should be first in line for services being provided and those opportunities that this great country provides.

Univision: To clarify, so you support a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants?
Sarah Palin: I do because I understand why people would want to be in America. To seek the safety and prosperity, the opportunities, the health that is here. It is so important that yes, people follow the rules so that people can be treated equally and fairly in this country.

And just how many pols who are for amnesty say they are for amnesty?

They justify the doublespeak by saying illegals must pay a fine, (sometimes) pay back taxes, and ‘go to the back of the line’ (all the while living here and soaking up benefits) unless they (otherwise) break the law—in which case they can be sent home (as long as their country of origin welcomes them with open arms).

Seeing Palin say this weak her immigration position is identical with McCain’s suggests she intends the same ‘nuanced’ approach.
