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).

Someone forgot to note that this thread is not for those who don’t tolerate well the quickened heart rate from looking at so many intelligent and beautiful of God’s creatures.
A true bevy of beauties, and all of them with the good sense to know that 2+2 is, was and always will be 4.
Did you ever see the episode of Red Eye with PAB in the blue dress?
Palin’s influence would not be relevant if the GOP had strong, competent leaders in their party. Palin is filling a vacuum that is quite noticeable at the top since 2005. There’s BEEN no leadership in the GOP so it is up to people like Sarah to push the party in a forward direction.
Here’s a sample:
Nice to look at, but boy . . . how she calls herself a Republican, I’ll never know. I guess she’s in the Northeast liberal wing of the party. She’s certainly no conservative.
Thanks!!! You just made my day!!
Sarah Palin has executive experiance running an entire state. Get lost !
Sarah's a RINO now ?!
Then he can be even angrier at the GOP.........
I like Palin, but you are right. Her influence is magnified by the fact that the GOP has neutered itself over the decades. The rank and file are desperate for someone who will stand up and speak up.
They've brought the problem on themselves, though. We've always had Repubs who were outspoken but the rank-and-file too often have taken their cues from the media and find themselves embarrassed election after election into following the warmed-over dishwater served up by the media and the party leadership.
If you want to know where the leaders are coming from in 2012, you have to look at who is leading now. Its a short list. Palin is on it, along with DeMint, and Bachmann, and I like Ryan and Pence. But its a pretty short list.
And I just found out that she's quite a pianist. I didn't know that.
>> Megyn is more qualified than Sarah.
Why, you must be referring to temperament. /s
A few of the wimps are having a hissy fit over this and yet they refuse to do what needs to be done. So, Sarah is going to lead her grizzlies into the viper pit and hope for the best.
What feminist drivel.
Mine too! :) There are a couple of other clips of her in that dress. I think some are on the sidebar. That was an amazing night of TV.
MIA? I don’t know where she went. She needs a good spanking.
