Skip to comments.K Street Republicansí war on Palin

Im getting sick of the rewriting of 2008 presidential campaign history as K Street Republicans continue to assault Sarah Palin in the fear that a similarly conservative Republican will rise to the top of the VP sweepstakes.
It has been so fashionable in D.C. Republican circles to bash the Palin nomination as a mistake, ill-conceived or even disastrous, that even Dick Chaney has gotten into the act.
These self-serving attempts to change history are nothing more than a smear campaign designed to influence the Romney VP pick by obscuring the truth that the choice of Sarah Palin to be the vice presidential nominee was truly inspired.
The McCain campaign was in the doldrums. Unable to match the youth and enthusiasm of the inexperienced but expert campaigner from Illinois, McCain needed to shake up the race, and Palin accomplished just that.
Now, four years later, those very architects and apologists of too big to fail policies desperately seek to dissuade presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney from making a similarly bold conservative choice for vice president.
Lets hope Romney remembers history, because if he does, he will know that the choice of Palin was one of the few things the McCain campaign got right. It was McCains and President Bushs abandonment of limited-government, free-market principles that were the ultimate culprit in bringing us four years of Obama not Sarah Palin.

Romney started this mess when he did not invite her to the convention....The jerk that he is!!!!
Al Gore and Biden are perfect VPs.
LOL I was just called a taliban over here for being honest about the Vichy Republicans.
I am soooooo touched that The Hill is soooooo concerned about Sarah Palin.
More red meat.
And that is why I am a Tea Partier!
And that is why I am a Tea Partier!
Hold your judgement. Tell me that wouldn’t be one hell of a great surprise to bring Mrs. Palin in to thunderous apporval with no notice??
exactly correct, You will no doubt be flamed by some on the FR board who don’t like Palin.
Romney’s long knives have been out for Palin since she was nominated in 2008.
This is why I’m reserving my votes exclusively for bona fide Tea Party candidates. I’m no longer voting for any old Republican candidate unless I’m 100% certain they are Tea Party. The actions of the GOP-e and their ruling-class leadership have proven (especially by their treatment of Palin, but also other Constitutional conservative voices) that they hold me and my views in abject contempt.
Amen, brother! Even Cheney’s daughter called BS on this heinous act.
I’ve been admiring your posts for quite awhile,
And while I find you a fine Michigan redneck, I’ll bet my farm you are not a taliban.
Y'all are gettin a little mushy........
I personally think this is a good thing. The more they war against Palin, the closer we get to a VIABLE third party that will end their elite rule once and for all.
A Palin/West or West/Palin ticket under a new party “Constitution?” would have devastated both of the current criminal enterprises. They would have needed to start right after the 2008 loss. A groundswell like a volcano if the communication and message was there. I would donate 10 times more then I ever have. My guess is 10 billion dollars would have flowed into that campaign.
