No doubt about it! The GOP has been dead to me for a long time now. God-in-Embryo Mittens was just the latest manifestation of the rot.
I already left over Romney. Took Palin long enough. I find it amusing that those of us who didn’t roll over or left the GOP were called traitors and liberals and told that a 3rd party would never float. Many of these same ones are now supporting the idea if Palin is on board.
But the timing is not too swell.
I'm SURE that we will swingly violently back to the right in the next election.
No; let me say we have a high probability that Republicans will garner a LOT of seats next election.
Whether that means to the right would remain to be seen.
I doubt the high ranking powers that be that CONTROL the GOP really want to lose out again; so I seriously doubt they'd be so STUPID to run yet another RINO like Romney or a fightless McCain.
We like Sarah because she's a FIGHTER!
We are damned tired of being stomped on, so almost ANY 'fighter' the GOP puts forward would accepted, even if the Conservative label doesn't sit too well.
This being said, she'd have to fight the Libs (easy knock out there) but also the GOP (if she ran Independant or a new party)
The natural rebound the pubs will get next time would make it very hard for a third party to succeed, and would possibly get us another Ross Perot outcome. (Do we really want another CLINTON?)
He was a fighter, and the GOP was on the ropes then, as well.
