The GOP needs a Tea Party candidate -- either Sarah Palin or someone very like her. Alas, it's going to have to wait until 2016 to get its rogue.

2016 is too late, game over.
The McCain/Palin ticket was up ++4 to 10 pts
in some polls, days prior to Election 2008.
So rather than helping the GOP, Romney and
TeamROMNEY and the RNME (Republican National Media Establishment)
decided to attack Gov. Palin to throw Election2008.
Romney, and the Van der Sloot RNME RINOs for Obama in 2008
Late in October, The American Spectator's The Prowler revealed:
"Former Mitt Romney presidential campaign staffers
have been involved in spreading anti-Palin spin to reporters, seeking to diminish her standing after the election.
'Sarah Palin is a lightweight, she won't be the first, not even the third, person people will think of when it comes to 2012,'
says one former Romney aide
'The only serious candidate ready to challenge to lead the Republican Party is Mitt Romney.
"Some former Romney aides were behind the recent leaks to media, including CNN, that Governor Sarah Palin was a 'diva' and was going off message intentionally."
The Palmetto Scoop reported: "One of the first stories to hit the national airwaves was
the claim of a major internal strife between close McCain aides and the folks handling his running mate Sarah Palin."
"Im told by very good sources that this was indeed the case and that a rift had developed, but it was between Palins people and the staffers brought on from the failed presidential campaign of former Gov. Mitt Romney, not McCain aides."
"The sources said nearly 80 percent of Romneys former staff was absorbed by McCain and these individuals were responsible for what amounts to a premeditated, last-minute sabotage of Palin."
aides loyal to Romney inside the McCain campaign, said The Scoop, reportedly saw
that Palin would be a serious contender for the Republican nomination in 2012 or 2016, which made her a threat to another presidential quest by Romney.
"These staffers are now out trying to finish her off .hoping it would ingratiate themselves with Mitt Romney."
"Who's the Palin Leaker from the McCain Campaign?
National Review Online The publication of a Vanity Fair profile of Sarah Palin
appears to have opened old wounds in the McCain campaign.
... the source of the Diva leak was Nicolle Wallaces husband."
We’re gonna lose anyway, the GOPee thinking apparently goes, then let’s let the guy whose turn it is have his fun.
I was prepared to support and vote for her. She lost her chance. The “Mama Grizzly” decided to sit it out when the situation was begging for her to run. Instead of ‘Going Rogue’, she went ‘Huckster’.
Really is a shame that the best we have is Romney. Seems like the gods are against us!
I bought The Undefeated DVD the day before she announced her non-candidacy. I still haven’t opened it.
We didn’t get into this mess alone. The Democrats didn’t do all of it. We’ve all been responsible, through either action or inaction.
My biggest concern is that there are still plenty of Republicans who are happy pretending that a conservative federal government solution is somehow okay, but a liberal federal government solution isn’t. That somehow, our version of “big” is the answer.
Until we realize that most federal govermnet solutions are wrong, period, I agree. We’re hosed.
Sarah Palin is no one’s savior. No one person can fix things.
It will somehow take a mass awakening to the fact that until we decide that a huge government is bad, period, regardless of the goals or intent; we’re sunk.
Never thought I would agree with the writers from CNN, but have to say I agree with these comments.
Instead of Going Rogue, she went Huckster.
Each one of us has a price. There is not a thing wrong with that. Palin weighted her options and made the choice best suited to her needs as she saw them. That can’t and shouldn’t be faulted.
same here, . In 2008 they put Sarah on the ticket to shut us up and I guarantee that they will get someone on the ticket thinking we will fall in line again and rely on our differing views of obama.
Well not for me or my family this time, I’ve had it with the cowards in the GOP, they put out a north east liberal and then tell us we should vote for him.
Sarah and Col Allen West is the ticket to fire up the base, who can take the left on and bring FL to our side.
Just think the left could never say if we had that ticket that the right hates blacks or women due to us having a women and a great Col who has balls.
Out steps a figure dressed in black, Darth Cheney!
You should start suporting him!!!!!!!!!!
Out steps a figure dressed in black, Darth Cheney!
A crappy unskilled “leader” like Obama and not one damn challenger within his own party? Really?
Never vote for a Democrat, they have no principle or love for America.
25 years ago, we had Ronald Reagan, Johnny Cash, and Bob Hope.
If you can't appreciate the pure beauty of the violin after hearing this, something's wrong with your ears.
Or you can get raw with these strings.
How about this gamechanger from America's Got Talent (which they SHOULD have won).
And finally, this, dedicated to the one and only rdb2, whose eyes are growing dim.
Either way, the violin is sweet yet LETHAL.
If only Sarah Palin had run ...
Not sure about who we should be supporting! It is more about why we are supporting who we do. It is more about who they are or what they stand for? Not sure that any of that actually is true. We have nobody that actually supports our beliefs but we will tag along with those that come close.
We are becoming (the less informed) persuaded by advertisements rather than reason these days.
