It’s one thing to payback a sitting Senator who has previously endorsed you. I wouldn’t have done it, but Palin endorsed McCain under similar circumstances. Everyone understands the influence of personal loyalty, but to pick an obscure radical liberal that had never done anything for anybody, and endorse her over a conservative candidate, that is impossible to explain. Of course, who knows what Nancy whispered in Newt’s ear on that couch, that got him to buy into Al Gore’s agenda. Maybe, she would only give him more “couch time” if he endorsed DeDe.
