Skip to comments.Megyn Kelly Asks Guests: Should Sarah Palin Actually ‘Butt Out’ Of Primaries?
Posted on 08/12/2010 2:18:43 PM PDT by pissant
Is the Sarah Palin backlash beginning? Unlikely, but this remark from Rep. Jack Kingston on Americas Morning News radio show this morning is further evidence that the GOP is far from united behind the former Gov. of Alaska. Kingston told the hosts that he wished Palin would butt out of primary races because what she is doing is dividing the Republican party at a time when we dont need to be divided.
Of course, one might argue its that very division that Palin has used to her best advantage. Or that she has done a good job creating the perception she has this influence by picking strong candidates. Either way, shes getting credit for both. Meanwhile, Kingston also wondered why Palin felt compelled to get into primaries all over the country though I think the answer to that is obvious: where else could she wield her Facebook power? Kingstons remarks come on the heels of Tuesdays primary in which the Georgia candidate Palin backed lost (that said her batting average was pretty impressive).

Does Gov. Palin ever endorse a candidate without first being asked by the candidate?IIRC, she doesn't speak out unless asked by a candidate.
Or at least first discussing a possible endorsement with the candidate?
Does anyone know ?
Sorry for the double post, I just got carried away.
Didn’t they tell us the primaries were the only place to have our say, and always vote for the party candidate? Now they don’t even want that?
Megyn is more qualified than Sarah.
Why doesn’t Jack Kingston just mind his own f’n business?
Pffft! Kingston was the honorary co-chair for Romney campaign in Georgia in 2008. That’s his agenda...Romney 2012.
“I’ll see your Megyn and raise you a Sarah”
This is turning into a GREAT thread!
They’re both qualified and they’re both hot lol.
“SHE SHOULD HAVE HER OWN SHOW TO COMPETE WITH THE VIEW - IT WAS AMAZING!!”
Yes - Great idea! She could have Michelle Malkin and Michelle Bachmann on with her.
Call it “The Truth”.
Not when she endorses RINOs like McCain, Ayotte, Norton, Handel, & Fiorina over conservatives.
Kingston just outed himself as a RINO.
No Conservative Republican has a problem with Sarah Palin endorsing Republicans for office.
Even if a Conservative Republican is opposed by another Conservative Palin endorsed, he still has his record to run on.

Both are beautiful and keepers. Patti Ann is a soft beauty, girl next door type. Megyn is polished and super model beautiful.
She seems pragmatic to me, more so than a rigid idealogue.
DeVore was certainly more conservative, but I am under no illusion that he could beat Boxer.
If SP’s endorsement of Fiorina spares me from having to see that nasty Boxer mug on TV, that ALONE will be worth it.
Re-read the title of the piece.
I betcha Pissant sleeps with an inflatable Sarah Palin doll.
