Skip to comments.The Palin Brand ("no consistent philosophy, no guiding principles, no remedial vetting")
Posted on 05/27/2010 1:26:40 PM PDT by rabscuttle385
In the midst of one of the most precipitous political crashes in the Mountain West, Sarah Palin made a mad dash into Boise on Friday, urging the election of a man who had plagiarized his campaign speech from Barack Obama, had been rebuked by the military for misusing the Marine uniform and had called the American territory of Puerto Rico a separate country.
And why not? Vaughn Ward, the Republican congressional candidate from Idaho, has the dubious character trifecta of the Palin brand: bone-headed, defiant and willfully ignorant. When told that Puerto Rico was not a country, he said, I dont care what you call it.
On Tuesday, this Palin protégé was routed in a huge upset, despite a big early lead in the polls, a 6-to-1 fundraising edge and that Friday fly-in by the former half-term governor, who has Idaho roots.
In California, Palin has endorsed Carly Fiorina for Senate. Who cares? Well, Palin should. In the 2008 presidential campaign, Palin pledged to stop multi-million dollar payouts and golden parachutes to C.E.O.s who run their companies into the ground.
After having steered Hewlett-Packard into a ditch, with the stock plunging 50 percent and 20,000 real Americans forced into layoffs, Fiorina walked away with about $45 million.
Between surreal appearances from Wasilla as the caged pundit of Fox News and quick, splashy landings in the lower 48 states, Palin has shown she still has the attention span of a hummingbird on a nectar jag. She does not do basic homework. Never has. The result is a string of endorsements for people whose lives are living contradictions of their stated philosophies.

I guess you just looove those lib talking points.
But what else to expect from a Paulbot?
Reaching for The New York freaking Times to slime Sarah Palin Scuttle?
That’s pretty low, even for you, isn’t it?
Even the dummies at the New York Times can’t possibly believe their own propaganda. I mean 0bama’s track record with endorsing candidates is still 0-100. Plus 0bama once said there were 57 states.
And this idiot Eagan is berating Sarah Palin for what?
What's the matter, catch your boyfriend ogling a picture of Sarah?
Comparing Palin to Obama is hardly a strong argument. There are a lot of people who are better than Obama.
Well, yeah. But thus is from the NY Times, who, just like AP, worship the ground that 0 walks on.
LOL, NYT ping!
"I doubt it. Only drooling morons give the New York Slimes any credibility."
Nothing is going to deter true Sarah Palin devotees. And the NYT may only have perhaps 20% if the respect it once had, but it can still pack a wallop when a politician is vulnerable on an issue. And some of Sarah's political election endorsements are a vulnerable issue for her, even among those who love her.
So you’re now posting Slimes articles in your effort to attack Governor Palin...?
He did know that they speak Austrian in Vienna though.
It’s a show of PES.
Wow. Even on a bad day, I am not THAT catty.
The result is a string of endorsements for people whose lives are living contradictions of their stated philosophies.
In all candor, I think her "endorsements" are being dictated by Team McCain.
Surprised that the Times is putting this out before the primary vote. This is but a small taste of what will come if Fiorino wins the primary.
The PaulBots thought they were cute backing the Libertarian vs. the Conservative Republican Sarah Palin endorsed
in the recent House primary in Idaho.
The PaulBots backed Raul Labrador , a pro-illegal immigration lawyer.
LOL!! The PaulBots prove where they really stand.
McCain wanted her to endorse Rand Paul? Nikki Haley? The guy from NY 23? Y'all are in need of some serious help.
Yes, Sarah's Fiorina endorsement over Chuck Devore, was on one of the most insane moves that she could have made -- if she'd have made it on her own. But once you understand the Fiorina/McCain connection, it becomes obvious who really pulled the strings for Carly there.
