Its time for a break up.
If you havent already seen, Sarah Palin has endorsed Bill Walker and Byron Mallotts Independent-Democrat Unity ticket in the Alaska gubernatorial race over Republican incumbent Sean Parnell. She endorses the Independent-Democrat ticket over the man who was her own lieutenant governor.
Because of this, as far as Republican politics are concerned, Im finished with Sarah Palin. I have nothing but respect for her has a wife, mother, and grandmother. I pray that, should I ever be faced with the prospect of having to raise a child with Down Syndrome or any other disability, I would have the wisdom to make the kind of decision she made with Trig and that I could bear that cross so gracefully. I must also add, in light of recent events, that I find the medias treatment of the family brawl despicable, and unlike Carroll Costello, I find assault no laughing matter.
Excerpt, read the rest at Red State
Oops. I forgot to click the excerpt button.
I’m not at all familiar with Alaska politics but I know Sarah has a long history of fighting Republican ‘good ol boys’ - the GOP-e of that state. If she’s against them, there’s probably a good reason!
I don’t know enough about Alaska politics to understand her endorsement. But I am not through with Sarah due to an endorsement.
She’s made lots of endorsements of candidates. I can’t say that I always know who they are in different states.
I guess I don’t understand breaking up politically with Sarah due to one endorsement.
Other politicians I have supported have sometimes done things which I didn’t agree with, but I still supported them. It takes a big event to be a game changer, in my opinion. So would love to learn more, as to why she did this, and who are these people on the Alaska unity ticket.
my 2 RINO US senators in TN have no difficulty in standing with liberals Obama and Reid on AMNESTY etc...
Sarah knows where the bodies are buried. Probably has a good reason.
“I pray that, should I ever be faced with the prospect of having to raise a child with Down Syndrome or any other disability, I would have the wisdom to make the kind of decision”
Perhaps Sarah has got spotlight disorder.Once famous it can be difficult to go back to being just an ordinary citizen.Or maybe her former lt. governor sabotaged things we don’t know about.
Either way there are times it is just better to just shut up and not recommend what other people do or vote.
She endorsed Republican liberals and people didn’t do anything but praise her. Now the cheshire comes screaming out when one of the Blessed RINOs is threatened.
Oh the hypocracy.
I’m finished with Red State!
Here’s the report on what’s going down.
“Under the Alaska Constitution, mineral resources are owned collectively by state residents, and under the new law, he said, they could be sold in some circumstances to oil companies for almost no revenue in return.”
So Parnell is unravelling her signature achievement for Alaska. Why would she be satisfied with and supportive of that? Crony capitalism? You betcha.
Fibe = Fine
So what is wrong with her endorsement, that she bucked the party line?
Did Jake at Redstate make any attempt to contact Palin, & ask her why she did this?
We are 2 weeks out from the elections and Sarah has lost her position as “King Maker”
The longer she stay out of the arena, the more influence she will lose.
Yup. They praised her for endorsing Romney, the arch liberal. I guess that R does really trump everything.
If the choice is between standing with Palin or standing with the “GOP,” I’ll stick with Palin. She has a history of fighting corruption, regardless of party.
Frankly I wish Palin would bolt the GOP entirely and help initiate a new party. I’d go with it at the drop of a hat, and never give the Republicans my vote again. The GOP keeps caving on every single issue that ever caused me to support them in the first place.
I don’t always agree with her but I have a strong enough character that I don’t need to attack her over such minor disagreements.
