Can’t argue with a single word of this. Indeed, it encapsulates the reason my lifelong, exclusive support and voting record for the GOP has pretty much come to an end. I just no longer have any basic ‘trust’ in the Party anymore. The backstabbing of Palin (and quietly and not-so-quietly siding with the liberal media in its ‘wilding’ of her) was either the most massive display of disloyalty or cowardice... most likely both... that I could imagine. Proof to me that the GOP-e is pretty much in bed with the same socialist, ruling-class elitists of the Dems, ready to destroy any attempts at genuine constitutional conservatism.
Palin’s unique mix of conservatism, with its elements of reform, libertarianism, and social conservatism, fit my political/ideological/cultural views to a “t.” The first figure to come along and energize me and give me optimism for the country since the way Reagan did back in 1980. The GOP kicking her to the curb was kicking ME to the curb. If I’m alive ten/twenty/thirty years from now, this whole situation will still likely be the key political incident that forever altered my views.

I certainly agree.
The only thing Romney could do now to get me excited
would be to make Palin his VP.
I don’t think he’s smart enough to do that though
so I will have to wait till 2016 but I’m sure
we will see more of Mrs.Palin in the mean time.
