“His brain has turned to dough, like the rest of him.”

I suspect both the Democrat and Republican establishment have conducted polls and focus groups regarding Sarah Palin resigning from her position as Governor of Alaska before her term ended. Likely the results show this action is her strongest negative with a majority of the electorate. While many conservatives understand the rationale for her resignation due to the distraction of hundreds of frivolous and financially ruinous lawsuits, the average voter expects and wants a President to stand tall under fire. Plus, culturally (as George C. Scott said in the Patton movie) Americans hate to lose and hate quitters. Rove is using ammunition the Democrats and media will pound her with every day if she ever runs for public office again. It may not be fair, but politics is a blood sport.

If Palin hopes to ever be President she needs to come out swinging with an answer that the American people will buy. Like it or not it is a legitimate issue. It is unfortunate Rove is using it to bring down a member of his own party, but Sarah declared war on Rove and the establishment so she should expect them to fire back with as good as they’ve got.

For a conservative to win the Presidency and be an effective leader she or he has to have skin of iron and the ability to stand tall under worse fire than Karl Rove is able to muster. If she had presidential ambitions at the time she resigned, resignation was a stupid move and her public rationale does not make the average voter perceive she won’t do the same again when entrusted with the highest office of the land.

Where have you been the last 4 years?

You say:

1. ...Sarah declared war on Rove and the establishment so she should expect them to fire back with as good as they’ve got.

and

2. ...she or he has to have skin of iron and the ability to stand tall under worse fire than Karl Rove is able to muster.

Reality:

Sarah was going along with the establishment when she signed on with McCain. While she single handedly tried to drag his tired rear end across the finish line, those same establishment elites were doing everything they could to sabotage her. So who declared war on whom?

Sarah Palin has had to put up with more garbage than any other candidate running, not just from the democrats, but from her own party. These same establishment idiots attack her regularly for the silliest things imaginable. Establishment/elitists work for and along with the democrats. They hate everything conservative and will go as far as undermining their own party by their support for allowing illegals into this country to vote in order to weaken the influence of conservatives in this country.

As for her resignation, if that is the only problem they have to hammer her with, they have already been defeated. She saved Alaska multiple dollars and hours of wasted effort, something no RINO, establishment/elite type, or democrat could ever understand. But “We the People” do understand it and are thankful for it.

I seriously doubt she will run for President. She has a role to fill as an outsider who can quickly deflate Beltway pomposity.
