Sarah Palin once again proved that her political instincts far surpassed those of the Republican political establishment, which long has accepted Don Young, Alaska’s lone Congressman.
Elected in 1973, Young has come to epitomize what is wrong with Washington, with questionable use of campaign funds and cronyism.
Young’s statement yesterday calling farm workers “wetbacks” has generated a lot of controversy, as it should. I’m usually the last person to jump on the bandwagon, but Young is a relic who needed to go even before that comment, and more so now.
Palin saw the problem back in 2008, and stunned the Republican political establishment by backing a challenge to Young:
Alaska Lt. Gov. Sean Parnell stunned everyone at the Republican state convention Friday, announcing he will challenge 18-term incumbent Don Young for Alaska’s lone seat in the U.S. House.
“For too long, we have expected too little from our elected officials,” Parnell said. “It is time for change.” ….
With Gov. Sarah Palin at his side, Parnell later Friday filed his official paperwork at the state elections office in Anchorage.

Young’s biggest crime was that he had been selling out America for so long, he forgot that there was an R next to his name.
Sarah ping! :o)
Oh, for goodness' sake, no it shouldn't. The PC language thing? Who cares?
Not that he might not be past his sell-by date in terms of what we need today (don't know the guy): Congressmen who know their Constitution, and are prepared to de-fund without a trace anything that's not contained in it, and take whatever measures are necessaryinvestigation, impeachment, and beyondtoward anyone in the Executive or the Judicial branches who tries to seize authority he doesn't own.
They actually thing she said the things here parody actress said. Meanwhile, they won't believe actual things that BO really said because the MSM has made them disappear down memory holes. The MSM, more than any other institution, is the root cause of what ails this country because it is the enemedia which enables and promotes the pink mafia, the Paul Krugmans, the Demougunnists, the GOP ignoramuses and the BOs of the world.
Discredit them and the country will be on the way to recovery. Fail to do so and it will be like playing chess with a pigeon: you can make all the brilliant and logical moves that you want, but the pigeon will just knock over the pieces, crap all over the board and strut off victoriously.

Thank you for the comment. It is an perfect example of how the democrat/liberals play the game.
I hear ya, Vigilanteman! Don’t forget that they did the same things to Ronald Reagan - but it didn’t work. I know it’s a different “age” today but the same mindset. I don’t know if Sarah could win a national election today or not (she has been so demonized) but I do know she could help other conservatives to do so - and has. She has the gut instincts that I don’t see in others on the right. I don’t like everything about Ben Carson but if anyone really has a chance I think he might (black, intelligent, accomplished, composed, gutsy). We’ll see. Ted Cruz is another great possibility. How about a Cruz Carson or Carson Cruz ticket? The left is already going after both big time as they are a big threat to them and they know it. I really believe Carson could get a lot of black votes. I think Rand Paul’s approach (ask blacks, hispanics, asians, etc. for their vote - challenge blacks regarding their lock step with Democrats vs the little pay off they get from it) is a worthy approach. I don’t think I could support R. Paul for the presidency - there are just better candidates for conservatives. Now is the time to lay the needed ground work for 2014 and 2016. I would love to see the most outstanding conservatives get together now and plot strategy. We need a really good - under the radar - game plan to get rid of as many rhinos in the senate as possible, to secure more state governments for conservatives so voters can see the success of conservative ideas played out and to get out the conservative vote (which means having a real conservative candidate!). Perhaps we need a new party. I don’t know if there’s time to really build that kind of machine at this point. But we already know the GOP-e is plotting against us for all future elections. We need to get behind one or two candidates now! By 2016 Obama may have already nationalized the voting process, passed amnesty giving the dems millions of “illegal” votes and who knows what other evils. We can’t wait.
