Stacey Abrams is the Democrats’ Sarah Palin
The Washington Post ^ | May 19, 2020 | Marc A. Thiessen

Posted on 05/20/2020 4:51:57 PM PDT by fwdude

Stacey Abrams is running a less-than-subtle campaign to be Joe Biden’s vice-presidential running mate. Republicans should hope she succeeds. If selected, she would displace Sarah Palin as the least-qualified person ever to serve on a major-party ticket.

Biden should understand this, because he saw firsthand how much damage Palin’s selection did to then-Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), the Republican presidential nominee in 2008. Preelection polls showed that 6 out of 10 Americans said Palin was not qualified for the job, and a Stanford University study found that she cost McCain more than 2 million votes.

Interesting because this piece is enraging both conservatives AND leftists for completely different reasons. Get out your popcorn.

Of course Thiessen is a pig, he works for the ComPost after all.

But he has enraged enough Marxist readers that even HE might get canned from the paper.

No she’s not.

Sarah Palin was actually a successful governor who won races.

I agree. Thiessen is a reliable conservative and it baffles me how he has this perspective.

Not even close. She’s the Democrat’s Jabba the Hutt.

Except that, Sarah Palin was better than John McCain, and would have made a better president than McCain and much better than Obama.

Stacey Abrams is just there, occupying space, a lot of it, and full of hot air.

No way she cost McCain two million votes. I'm sure I wasn't the only person who voted for McCain because she was on the ticket.

Crappola. McCain got about 58 million votes. 20 million of those people wouldn’t of crossed the street to shake his hand. His campaign was comatose, Palin rejuvenated it. Had he picked some milquetoast moderate RINO wuss, he would have been crushed in a George McGovern like beating.

Yeah, Sarah Palin was mayor of a fast-growing small city, then governor of the largest state in the Union. Stacey Abrams is...what, exactly? The endless Palin bashing continues to sicken me.

Gee, that’s rewriting history. Actually, Sarah Palin energized the Republican ticket. It was the financial crisis that doomed McCain.
