What’s great about Sarah is, she doesn’t have to roar, only a whisper and everyone listens! But that doesn’t mean everyone will admit to it.

It was your comment on the other thread about Sarah being happy which I hadn’t thought of, only my own happiness, at the time, reading about Deb winning and coming out from behind that made me think of you when I saw her pic with her facebook statement about Deb’s win.

Nancy Pelosi - watch out, Stretch. Your days are numbered.

Not a chance. Her district will reelect her until she dies and probably after than as well.

Mitt is going to have to ask Sarah to be his VP—to help his ticket and to keep her from primarying his butt out of office in 2016.

192,231 for Republican Senatorial Candidates

I was just going to point that out...out of the 80,000 who cast votes on the Dem ballot; just over 18,000 chose not to cast a vote for Obama. When you look at vote totals; it doesn’t look good for Kerrey...not one bit.

It would appear that the trumpeted irrelevancy of Sarah Palin, along with the diminution of the Tea Party..are premature.

(insert Precious Pup laugh)

Go Deb Fischer, go Sarah Palin..and go Tea Party. :-)

WOW I am stunned, stunned I tell ya, the media is constantly saying how irrelevant Sarah Palin is yet another endorsed candidate wins again..THAT’S the power of Palin

The real battle is between conservatives and the GOP establishment, and is fought in the primaries. In this battle, Sarah provides true leadership.

“This is not conducive to problem solving and governance. And he will find that unless he modifies his approach, he will achieve little as a legislator. Worse, he will help delay solutions that are totally beyond the capacity of partisan majorities to achieve,” said Lugar.

He said if Republicans continue to make it difficult for legislators to find compromise, “we will be relegated to minority status. Parties don’t succeed for long if they stop appealing to voters who may disagree with them on some issues.”

You beat yourself, crankbait. What kind of loser harps about disconnect, when he doesn't even own a house in the State he supposedly represents?!? Parties don't succeed for long if they keep sending the same octogenarian six-term RINOs with the same stale, last-century RINO 'ideas' back to the Senate.

And by the way, Dick, it's a Senate, not a House of Lords.

You became part of the problem, with a clear interest in sustaining the problem -- like START -- rather than actually providing a real solution. And your comity comedy with Bobo? Don't get me started.

"He has pledged his support to groups whose prime mission is to cleanse the Republican party of those who stray from orthodoxy as they see it,” said Lugar of the GOP opponent who beat him."

And so he did. Wash, rinse, repeat as needed. Enjoy your retirement, you old goat.

If you ever lurk on a leftwing website, you'll discover that they seriously believe higher tax rates will increase employment. Seriously. The theory is that since fat cat corporations can't keep their money anyway, they will hire as a way to avoid taxes.

The fact that it has never happened in the real world never seems to phase them. That's their theory.

I just hope she can beat Bob Kerrey. He has won handily in the past and a LOT of people vote for him just because of his Medal of Honor medal. I am glad the more conservative person won on the Republican side, but if Kerrey wins this race, a rabid lefty will have replaced a moderate lefty. That won’t help us.

Pretty good pull for someone so irrelevant as Sarah Palin. Wish we could have more non-factors like her around.

but, yeah, when Sarah speaks, I listen!

Sarah Palin has political instincts that few can match. Could that endorsement of Fischer come at a more perfect time? Same thing happened for Nikki Haley in SC. There Nikki was, languishing in the back of the back... then she met with Sarah, impressed her and won the endorsement, and the rest is history.

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

"Helping" is the key word, however. This wasn't just Palin stepping in with a magic wand but rather watching the internals and figuring out which conservative stood the best chance of winning, and then coming out with timely support to build on the existing momentum. That's her MO, and it seems to be playing out again just as it did in 2010.

Confession time. I helped open the Santorum office here in Omaha. Rick seems and, I believe is, a good man who has become more and more conservative over the years. I was a ignorant liberal many moons ago. When I because a “true” Christian, God opened my eyes and I became more conservative, so I understood Rick. When Rick dropped out I was so upset. I did not think Rick was going to be like Reagan, but he was right on the issues and I wanted someone to stop romney. I switched to Newt hoping....

For a few weeks I amused myself by attacking romney supporters. I had seen some here who bashed Rick or Newt with passion, but never romney. I knew they were romney backers all along, but were ashamed to admit. (I would be ashamed too) These were my targets.

Now, unless God give us a miracle, we might be stuck with romney. I don't trust him, I keep thinking about this promise to the log cabin republicans; that it will take a republican, not a democrat, to get gay marriage legal across the nation. He has lied so much about his stand on gay marriage, abortion, cap and trade....I can't vote for him.

For months I had been looking forward to our primary, but yesterday I did not even know who I was going to vote for. We watched the conservative vote being split, which gave us romney. I liked Stenberg and Levin endorsed him, so I voted for him. The tea party express endorsed Bruning. Which tea party org are we suppose to trust? Are they trying to split the conservative vote again? Are those polls right? Is Sarah helping divide? Forgive me God for blaming her. I decided some of these tea party's are rinos, so I stuck with Stenberg. Then, after voting, someone here corrected me on the truth about Deb. There were a few here who wanted romney more than what is right, so who do I trust. The good news is, there are many like me who are very conservative, but voted for Stenberg. So, take all those Stenberg votes and give them to Deb; she will win big time.

Twenty years ago, when Bob Kerry was in this political hayday....

No internet except in military and college research centers
(Unless you count Q-Link for C64 users who had 1200bps or 32bps modems).

No Twitter

No Facebook

No Tea Party

Sarah Palin was just a young mom

Conservative talk radio was just in it’s infancy

Obama was just a common community organizing thug.

Things have changed and Kerry can’t flash the smile and charm his way out. Bob Kerry also has a record and will be another stooge for Reid. That alone will piss off the Republican voters (who outnumber Democrats in the state).
