I agree, I was very disappointed in Sarah when she stepped down as Gov of Alaska.
Please don’t give me the reasons I have heard them over and over and I am still disappointed in her that she could not figure out a way. As much as her supporters love her I don’t remember hearing her asking for help fighting her attackers.
I am sorry she didn’t ask because I would have donated money to help keep her viable.
Pretty much all her real supporters know this. Guess it just slipped your mind.
She did. She set up a defense fund, written by the sharpest, most expert DC lawyers. I donated to it. But still, the same outlandish operatives bankrupting her got a judge to quash it. It was absolutely insane. The frivilous lawsuits were coming at a pace of almost two a week by the end, and had Palin stayed in office, she and her family would have been up to $2-million in debt. All the while, the press was headlining each and every lawsuit, deliberately conveying the idea that she was the most corrupt politician living.
All the while, just like when her church was torched, and her kids were being dragged through the tabloid mud, and these operatives were bankrupting her, the GOP leadership didn’t lift a finger to help her. Heck, I recall the RNC even sent her a bill, charging her for her own ‘vetting!’
Two words: Gifford’s shooting.
Once the MSM/blogosphere tagged her as a “murderer” conspirator, the RNC and crew ran for the tall grass. Only talk radio, her grass-roots supporters, and Alan Dershowitz (a big lib lawyer from NYC) came to help.
There was nothing to “figure a way out”. It was an inside hit job by the MSM, DNC and RNC who didn’t want the chance of her getting a foothold in the American Lexicon for bigger and better things. Did you happen to notice the snub at the 2012 convention? Ever notice the contempt the RNC brandy sniffers have for her?
This is not your father’s GOP Ditter. There’s no room for a conservative at the top anymore.
You post the same question you are pretty likely to get the same answer. If you don't like the answer quit asking the question, or get your
“I would have donated money to help keep her viable.”
Then why didn’t you? My sister donated to a couple funds (at least) to help her out.
