When Palin aids wouldn't support her .... Though it wouldn't really be such a huge surprise.
Despite her demonstrated public incompetence, Im sure the GOP conservative base , will be looking at her future career. Im exstatic that the GOP feels she has future potential. She will be an interesting target. The gOP is feeling that they must become even more conservative rather than more inclusive. There is a HUUUGE upcoming latino population (youve seen the predictions) . Latinos have, pretty much the same values as any one else and , the GOP, by using "value" bases for admission to the party, is missing the entire boat with latinos and the majority of more centrist Republicans.
The GOP will be faced with a fundamental decision from here on.
1Republicans will be ideologically pure or.
2 They will be able to win elections
I dont think that, from present viewpoints, Sarah Palin should have a place in the future GOP mainstream.
I'm certainly no fan of Sarah Palin. But I have to say that the money spent on clothes and the comments of "anonymous" sources are completely irrelevant to me.
I prefer to see the real data right from the horse's mouth, and one thing I know for sure is that every time I've seen Sarah interviewed without a scripted presentation, she has sounded like an idiot on a wide range of issues. Many people complain that it's the "gotcha" media which makes her look bad, but it's the media's job to getcha, and if you can't keep up with Katie Couric, then you have no business even being in the same room with Vladimir Putin or any other foreign dignitaries.
If a large percentage of the GOP want to fall in line behind Sarah that's fine because I suspect that 100% of Democrats would just love to see their opponents go that direction.
When I saw it was from Rich "Little Starbursts" Lowry I thought the defense would be more ringing. This is still admitting steep learning curves and fumbles.
rosborne said it well. If none of these latest attempts to make her the villain of the election (attempts made by fellow-Republicans) turn out to be true, that doesn't affect my opinion of her much. (As in, my opinion of her was bad even before the addition of these charges.) But if Republicans really want to hitch their wagon to Palin... well, that'll be interesting.
