McCain was Bob Dole with a decent running mate.
Cool!! Bite that, RINOs!!
GO SARAH!!! They are AFRAID...very AFRAID!!!!!!!!!!!
GO SARAH!!!!!!!!!!!!GO SARAH!!!!!!!!!
I think she helped bring in the base, which just shows how doomed McCain was from the start. I have a favorable view of her as a person. But at this point, I am opposed to her being our nominee in 2012. I think she should campaign for our nominee, because she’s a good campaigner/stump speechifier, and I think she’d make a good Sec. of Energy, but I’ll be looking for someone else to support when the time comes. And it won’t be Romney or Huckabee.
Ninety-one percent (91%) of Republicans have a favorable view of Palin, including 65% who say their view is Very Favorable.
Oh really? Gosh, that’s not what the MSM was reporting before the freakin election. Lying, disgusting, filthy, disingenuous, creepy, scumbag, partisan, pieces of chit.
91%?!?—she must be destroyed!
I’ll say it again. She IS the base. Any RINO trying to put her on the sidelines will be discarded.
This explains the bitterness among the McCain staffers. Their own candidate was to blame.
McCain was in losing mode when Palin bucked their defeatism. McCain, probably on the advice of staffers, gave up Michigan. Palin said, Send me! I never thought McCain was a loser (thought a lot of things about him, but not that.) but I think he had a loser mentality advising him. These are the same rats jumping the ship the day before the election leaking stuff about Palin. Rats like these are professional political staffers who, when their candidate begins to go down, are looking for their next job. Part of that process is to NOT let the blame for the loss be pinned on them. Thus the Palin blameshifting.
I first observed this when I was an intern on Capitol Hill in the 70s for a losing Congressman. Staffers were selling him out right in front of me, no shame. They work for whomever, cross the aisle, no problem. They are not principled. They are technicians, often having disdain for the person they work for.
She was a “drag” on the ticket...
Palin on the ticket was the only thing to drag me out of not supporting a RINO into voting for him. Actually she was the only one on the ticket I was voting for.
If she is as smart as I think she is she will take some time to unwind and rest up and then start to network with conservative leaders in the GOP and work to reestablish conservative control of the party. This can be done and in fairly short order if it is started now while the party is in disarray and the RINOs are discredited. And if she does this she needs to reach out to the talk radio barons and to the rightwing blogosphere.
ALSO what is up with those boys at fox???? They have been trashing her also. Greta is the only one sticking up for her.
Spinning off of Rush... McCain proved to be too heavy to drag across the finnish line.
