Wait and see how soon before the enemedia try to spin this as a possible pick-up for Bob Kerrey and the Democrats now that the TEA Party backed candidate has won.

Fischer is a smart lady and the turnout tonight for the Republicans were 2 to 1 to the Dems voting for Kerry. Sarah’s pull is amazing.....helping turn Fischer who was down 15 points in polls just a few weeks ago to winning by 5% is political power

Can’t be. The tea party is dead. Palin is washed up. Rove said it was so on Fox. And all in the GOP-e agreed and said all was good. Sheesh. If we can’t trust Rove/Fox/GOP-e, who can we trust.

“Will the GOPe try to pull another Murkowski?”

Nothing would surprise me at this point! If they actually got behind Fischer, she could probably win but they doesn't fit with their narrative that Sarah Palin is irrelevant.

By the way, I LOVE your tagline! : )

It’s Palin power baby, Palin power..some don’t want to admit it but she does make a difference..also Ted Cruz said today on Mark Levin’s radio show that the moment Palin endorsed him the phones were off the hook with new supporters

That will be Rove’s line, but his will be more condescending and negative.

Bruning called Fischer to concede, he may be a liberal Republican, but unlike Lugar he showed class in wanting to come together as a party to defeat the Dem so I give him that

Better. I thought Stenberg and Fischer were going to split the vote and let Bruning slip in.

WOW! Didn’t realize she was that far back to come out ahead! Political power, indeed - many know she can be trusted and can’t be bought! I never bother listening to political endorsements - they mean nothing to me but, yeah, when Sarah speaks, I listen!

That’s where Palin came in. Somebody said she recognized that Stenberg gets stuck at around 20% support so people needed to solidify around Fischer. I knew I couldn’t vote for Bruning once I heard about him sending a letter to Congress urging the confirmation of Eric Holder as AG. I was thinking I’d vote for Stenberg until Palin endorsed Fischer and the polls looked like it was Fischer who could beat Bruning. I think that’s probably what happened with a lot of people.

As crazy as it sounds, this was also a victory for Stenberg, because it was the ads on his behalf that got Bruning defeated - even if it wasn’t he who ended up as the candidate.

What I really hope is that this causes a discussion about Eric Holder. I hope the Congress-critters realize how much America despises that fox guarding the henhouse, whose stated purpose is to keep “his people” (Blacks, commies, terrorists, illegals, Obama thugs, etc) from ever being prosecuted for violating the law. Americans want the rule of law, not a banana republic. I hope the Congress-critters grow a pair when they realize how much it matters to us peons WHO VOTE!
