At 2:51 p.m. eastern time on Friday, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, who many in the Republican establishment try to dismiss as being irrelevant, endorsed Indiana Senate candidate Richard Mourdock on her Facebook page over establishment Republican incumbent Richard Lugar. Four hours later, at 6:36 p.m. eastern time, Politico ran a story about how the “American Action Network,” previously described as the establishment cavalry, would be pulling out of the Indiana race.

Looks like the GOP Establishment's Super-Pac...packed their Indiana bags, never to return, after Palin's endorsement of Mourdock. Good riddance to them. GO MOURDOCK!

There is a difference Lazlo.

One is a race between a Conservative GOP candidate and a GOP RINO.

The Presidential race will be a race between a socialist Rat against a GOP RINO.

Good for Sarah! Luger is a R1C (Rino 1st Class), and her endorsement should send a warning shot over the heads of the likes of Cantor, Boehner, and McConnell.

I agree with you, Sarah will indeed endorse Mitt. she has said early on: “ABO!” Good for Sarah!

President Obama is the best thing that ever happened to Mitt Romney. No way would he ever, ever have had a chance of being president if the current resident wasn’t so... so... bad! As far as Sarah’s endorsement for Mourdock, good on her. Wouldn’t it be great if she made a special trip to a campaign event for him? Lugar plays in the same RINO league as McPain.

I'd have to agree with your assessment.

“As far as Sarah’s endorsement for Mourdock, good on her. Wouldn't’t it be great if she made a special trip to a campaign event for him? Lugar plays in the same RINO league as McPain.”

I can't remember all of the specifics...can't even remember where I heard it, but supposedly Eric Cantor has surrogates working to help get Luger reelected. I think Palin’s endorsing Mourdock because 1) she likes his Conservative background, and 2) she's openly challenging the likes of Cantor, Boehner and McConnell.

As you mentioned, a personal trip to Indiana to campaign for Mourdock would be huge. It would also be a strong rebuke to Cantor and the boys that she's watching them closely.

Mourdock vote here and a few others. As I drive through Indy, I do see a few Lugar signs but no Mourdock signs. Perhaps we are the silent majority.

get outside of Indy.

There isn’t hardly a Lugar sign to be found around my county. But a crapload of “Retire Lugar” and “Mourdock” signs.

Why doesn’t Palin endorse herself to run for the Presidency. Can any one get behind this?

I know Governor Palin is very busy, but this is exactly where she can do the most good. Twitter isn’t enough. We need her out there encouraging the Tea Party at these crucial races.

Mitt Romney has taken a lot of wind out of conservative sails. He’s that bad, but fortunately for him, Obama is worse. As I mentioned, that’s about the only thing Romney has going for him...he’s ABO. I won’t demonize anyone who votes ABO, nor do I like it when ABO voters demonize those who plan to skip the presidential election this year.

I do agree Sarah Palin is likely to endorse ABO, but I hope she does it in a way that supports conservatives. I hope she doesn’t try to “blow smoke” by telling us what a great conservative Mitt Romney is. That would hurt her own credibility, because we KNOW Mitt is NOT a conservative. However, I’d fully understand an endorsement to get out there and defeat Obama now so that we can live to fight again another day (against RINOs and Dems alike).

We win some and lose some. We lost against McCain. We have another chance with Senator Lugar. These are entrenched politicians who will use all the power at their disposal to hang on. The more the RINOs fight, the clearer it is they have to go, because no one in DC is irreplaceable. Anyone who thinks they are has reached their expiration date!

Will you vote for Obama over Mittens?

And just to be clear, a vote for someone else besides Mitt, is a vote for Obama.

I have said negative things and had some dire thoughts about Mitt, but I will vote for him even if gagging when I do.

No, it is not. A vote for someone else such as Virgil Goode is a vote for Virgil Goode. It does not go into Obama's column.

The timeworn party loyalty talking points aren't going to cut it this time around. The GOP-E showed in 2010 that to them, party loyalty only applies when their choice of RINO wins. Many conservatives are choosing to exercise that precedent now in response to Romney's annointment.

Bitch at the GOP-E for the state of the party now, especially when they stood back and let Romney engage in scorched-earth politics in the primary that led directly to the bad blood we see now.
