Conservative columnist and commentator George Will has slammed Sarah Palin saying she should not be trusted with nuclear weapons.
Will was speaking on ABC yesterday and his damning words,coming from the right, may give many people pause.
Here is what he said:
"Two things are infinite. One is the expanding universe, and the other is media attention to Sarah Palin, who is a genius at manipulating it. But she has several political problems. The first of which is there's no undecided vote in this country anymore about Sarah Palin. Sure, second, the threshold question, not usually asked, but its in everyones mind in a presidential election. Should we give this person nuclear weapons? And the answer [in Palin's case], answers itself"
Will and other GOP heavyweights are suddenly running very scared that Palin is a legitimate contender.
She represents their worst nightmare, a grassroots candidate who owes the old bulls in the GOP nothing and who is prepared to say so.
Sarah Palin is actually looking better and better because of Will and others attacking her.
She is showing that she has the real handle on how to shake things up in America, even within her own party.
That is why Will and company are so scared.
LOL. Good one. I cannot stand the RINO.
CAN SARAH WIN?
HELL YEAH! DEAL WITH IT!
Us FR'ers / Tea Partiers are the Heterodoxy to these Insiders and the RNC.
They have been downsized, outsourced, and are irrelevant.
They just don't it yet.
Or they do and they are scared $H!+less as they try to maintain a power and control that was never theirs in the 1st place, we lent it to them, they screwed up, we are taking it back and not letting them be our voice...
Definitely, make that four pees(pun)in a pod.
Egads! She’s not holding the reins properly and even worse, she’s holding on to the saddle horn. Still, I forgive her ;-)
Exactly! The left is conning the left and the supposed right doing their con job on the right. They both have been working together for years to keep ‘We the People’ down and they keep power. Upside down and communist bent.
And the ‘We the People’ voice is Sarah. Who spoke out loudly FOR her these past years? Not one politician but - We the People. We know our own.
Oops... “They Just don’t know it yet..”
Was it George who had Obama over for dinner...what a fool..
Um... you know what “ineluctable” means, right?
If Palin wins the “Old Bulls” of the party will be neutered—and they know it.
They are Scared to death.
It’s obvious that conservatives’ (actually I prefer the term “Constitutionalists”*) real enemies are elitist insider GOPers.
You expect Dems/Leftists to be enemies, and of course they are. But “Republicans” and “Conservative pundits” [puke] are supposed to be friends of the Constitution and conservative principles.
It’s clear now beyond a doubt that they’re merely the other puppet hand on the same entity.
*Real Constiutional principles are the only thing worth anything at this point.
George has been thinking about baseball too much lately...
Shortly after being in office Reagan laughed and said the bombing starts in 5 minutes....heads exploded. I can imagine Palin making the same kind of jab at the establishment...
George Will, Perrier conservative.
Your a little harsh but correct in that we must not allow RINOs on the ticket. Actively getting Constitutional Conservatives in to the primaries is an absolute must. We are fighting for our country and its future, We have no need for moderates in this battle.
So is Krauthammer. He has the same disease.
