They did it once, they'll do it again. Sarah is about as 'authentic' as it gets ..... I can't imagine her hooking her star to a fraud like Romney. She'll be stained with his RINO manure & it won't come off ... and of course, if Romney loses as he is likely to do, it would ALL be her fault. If she has any thought of ever running for president, she needs to stay clear of Romney. If Romney loses to Obummer, I'm for chucking the GOP-e's who keep nominating losers, can't run Congress, won't stand up to Obummer, etc. and going 3rd party with Sarah leading the troops. There will be time & there will be the anger/energy for a 3rd party if we get O for another 4 years .... the question is, will we have a country.
Sarah learned in ‘10 that the way to be influential is to work hard and get other people elected, and wind up with a little black book of people who owe you. She’s going to own this party pretty soon.
