Sarah Palin was the one hopeful blip on the GOP screen in decades
If not for her, McCain would have been an even bigger loser than he was (is).
Then, the GOP proved (once again) it’s inability to learn a lesson, and put ‘Reince’ (???) Prebus in charge. If there was anything that could have shown the people how clueless they were other than electing someone named ‘Reince’ I dont know what it could be.
The GOP party has become a bureaucratic organization mostly concerned with holding their own jobs and promoting from within, as bad as any other government bureacracy.
Yep, I agree 100%.
It still dumbfounds me. All that unbelievable grassroots energy that Palin brought to the GOP. The biggest political dynamo they’d had since the days of Reagan. Even after she left office and was on her book tour, there were lines of a thousand people standing out for hours during the night in freezing temps to see her and get their books signed. Lightning-in-a-bottle. Might only happen once in a generation, especially in terms of the political world.
Add all the momentum the tea parties brought. And what did the GOP do, when handed these gifts? They did everything they could to pour cold water on it all. It can’t just be monumental stupidity. No one is that stupid. I ultimately had to come to the conclusion that the GOP leadership is just far more alligned to the ruling elite’s socialist agenda and resulting big-government corruption, alongside the degenerate Dems and their vile enablers in the media. I’ve voted exclusively GOP my whole voting life, but I no longer have any faith, respect or trust in the Party, due to all this.
