Stenberg and Bruning are not Lugar, Specter (you spelled his name wrong) Lieberman (you spelled his name wrong) or Kerry. Why you are rambling, I do not know.
Palin has a history of endorsing women even though more conservative men are in the race.
When she endorsed Karen Handel over Nathan Deal in Georgia, I lost much respect for her. Karen Handel was quite liberal on many important social issues, and had associations with radical homosexuals, yet that didn’t stop Sarah from endorsing her.
