S.E. Cupp: Palin hearts Newt. Really?
CNN ^ | March 8, 2012 | Sarah Elizabeth Cupp, Special to CNN

Posted on 03/09/2012 2:10:01 AM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

Far be it for me to offer unsolicited advice to Sarah Palin. She's built a very successful career out of going rogue and certainly doesn't need any tips from me.

And, as an occasional pundit, a political influencer and a private citizen, she's free to throw her weight behind anyone she wants.

But I just have to say it: Newt Gingrich? Really?

Now, I'm not in the camp of conservative elites who think she's seen her best days and should politely retire to obscurity. If anything, the premiere of "Game Change" on HBO on Saturday is proof that she's still relevant; she's got considerable influence over a certain wing of the party.

And so with great power comes great responsibility. Is Newton Leroy Gingrich the most responsible pick?

Of all the remaining candidates, in fact, the one that makes the least sense is Newt. Mitt Romney I could see, if she wanted to bring the party together. Rick Santorum I could see for his social conservatism, strong Christian faith and similar family stories. I could even see Ron Paul for his "throw the bums out" and "end the Fed" rogue-isms. But Newt?

When rumors first started swirling that Palin might back the former House speaker and self-appointed "cheerful" candidate, Gingrich was surging then. She said she'd vote for him in South Carolina if she could. She wanted to keep the primary alive, she said. And, playing to Newt's strength at the time, she urged "more debates" and "more vetting of candidates."

But now, with Newt's ham-fisted campaign out of mojo, and no debates on the horizon, it would seem like a good time to jump off that train and get behind Romney or Santorum....

She answered her own question: “She’s built a very successful career out of going rogue”

Who on earth is S.E. Cupp?

And why should I care about anything someone says on CNN? I stopped watching that channel years ago.

She wrote a book about the media being anti- Christianity, and then she supports a Mormon Bishop, an anti-Christian religion, and says that he can'unite' the party.

She even prefers Paul to Gingrich.

You are right, she is an atheist.

What I didn’t know until I did a search to verify your statement, was that atheists have purity tests, many are suspicious of her full commitment to not having faith. LOL, it all sounds very strange, here is one of them discussing her.

S.E. Cupp has a very juvenile writing style. And in every photo I’ve seen of her, she seems to be putting all of her effort into looking hot for the camera...makes it hard to respect her when she seems to be primarily focused on filling the “hot conservative female” niche.

You should see her site, it is clear that she is promoting herself like a model, she even has “latest photos” of herself.

Oh, being Mormon, I forget about Glenn Beck since I have never seen his show, or listened to his radio show for more than a few minutes and I didn’t catch the first names as those three Mormons, it is pretty late here.
