Conservatives are fooling themselves about Palin.

As much as I like her, outside of social conservative circles, she is universally considered an idiot. No amount of arguing will change that unfortunate fact, either.

Then you're basically saying no conservative will ever again be elected to a national office.

Because the MSM will demonize and vilify ANY movement conservative that tries to enter the political arena. Even ivy league educated, "moderate" Mitt Romney was portrayed (effectively) as an out-of-touch simpleton who's only success was predicated on being born rich....even though he donated his inheritance to charity and became a millionaire based on his own accomplishments.

Unless conservatives are willing to stand up to public ridicule, we will be doomed to a lesser-of-two-evils choice for President from now on.

I have not heard or seen anything that contradicts that statement.

If she ever ended up running for President, she would get even fewer votes than Santorum.

As the leader of conservatism and the kingmaker of the GOP, she is the most powerful single republican in America.

Palin is having an incredible effect on shaping the future of the GOP.
