Given the conventional wisdom that elitist derision towards her only makes her supporters support her more adamantly, youd think savvy Beltway consultants who dont like her would keep that fact to themselves. And yet. Heres their answer to the question, Which voice in your party would you most like to mute?
Thats among political insiders, i.e. consultants. Among senators and congressmen polled, she finished second behind no one, tied with Michele Bachmann and Glenn Beck, among others. These insiders are the same people, mind you, who earlier this year voted her seventh among Republican governors with the brightest political future (Mark Sanford was fifth). No wonder she enjoys jabbing them with threats about going third-party.

She needs to run for the Senate as a carpetbagger....maybe NY.
If you’re that far out of step with normal Republicans, you really can’t call yourself an “insider”. More a marginal figure, and an occasional hired employee.
I really don’t give a hoot what the “big shots” say. It may even be a rumor from the other side. The lady personifies the best America has to offer, in my opinion. I would be proud to claim her as my daughter.
Well if she goes, i’m following.
Our party leadership is full of people who think conservatives are scum.
I already left insiders. Waiting for the Cuda Party.
This is really a powerful statement about how the Republican “insiders” (who have a lot of money and influence) have hijacked the party and they are dangerous. This is why we really need to clean house and get a new tea-party contract signed.
Yep, I’m with Sarah. The RNC can pound sand.
Looks like she has the Rinos running scared!
How does someone go away?
She writes on Facebook and is on a book tour.
How exactly is that a problem? She is not doing much different than FReepers. Of course they’d like us to go away too I bet.
gop “insiders” can GOPound sand
This ought to help the RNC Fundraising efforts...NOT.
I don't think that the GOP base is going to take too kindly to the MSM and a bunch of RINO's planting another Juan as their Presidential candidate.
I still think that if Palin wants it and goes after it, the nomination is hers.
I sure don't see any bias in that question. I wonder who they had in mind when they thought the question up.
Sarah is going to clean house in Republican Presidential primaries.
I’m slightly into Sarah’s book, and she looks better and better, page after page.
5. GOP Insiders
