And your proof of this is what???
Well, for one thing, prior to Sarah's joining the ticket, Sad Grandpa wasn't drawing crowds even remotely like this:
"Moderate" Republicans demanded (and were given) carte blanche opportunity to demonstrate, once and for all, that they knew how to win at the national level, this year.
They got exactly the candidate they wanted. They got exactly the party platform they demanded. The campaign was run exactly the way they insisted it be run.
How'd that end up working out for us, again...?
They actually managed to lose to a one-term Senate Marxist with open and unapologetic terrorist ties. The ONLY thing I want to hear from Team McCain or any of its shrill little online apologists, from this day forward, is a meek and contrite: "We're sorry."
They have nothing else worthwhile what. so. EVER. to contribute to any meaningful discussion, re: either conservatism or winning electoral strategies.
They've shown they know how to lose, and lose badly. Now it's time for the conservative base to show them how to win again; and Sarah Palin is going to be the teacher.
LOL, I don’t think so, what is the old saying about doing the same thing over and over again hoping for different results.
Thanks, Kent, for a much needed dose of sane reality.
