It is absolutely a MUST that Sarah Palin distance herself from McCain - immediately! She owes him nothing! She paid her debt to McCain during the presidential campaign. Sarah, please ditch the RINO NOW!!! He's a millstone around both your and the entire conservative movement's neck.

"The simplest explanation why Palin will never be a credible conservative leader"


Lawrence Auster writes: "I often criticize parsimonious explanations of things, because I think they are so often wrong. But here's a parsimonious explanation I like.


Lydia McGrew writes: "You may think I do not criticize Sarah Palin, but the first thought that came to my mind when I read your exchange about the other interpretation of Palin's speech was this: Palin will never, ever be credible as the leader of a movement by conservatives to take over the GOP and "return to basics" as long as she fails to disassociate herself from John McCain. And she won't. So she won't be credible. Her position on this or that issue might change (this or that federal program, for example), but as long as she campaigns for McCain and ties herself to him, she will never lead the party to become more conservative, but rather the opposite. And she herself will be less likely to rethink any issues in a rightward direction as long as she is pulling for McCain."

LA replies:

Excellent point. And the most discrediting aspect of this as far as Palin's own political understanding and conservative credentials are concerned is that she herself does not realize that John McCain represents the opposite of the conservative resurgence she now claims to lead.
By way of grasping Palin's problem, consider Phyllis Schlafly's memorable anecdote about Ronald Reagan (in whose footsteps Palin now says she is following) in the 1980 presidential campaign. Schlafly tells how Reagan kept the pledge he had made to his conservative supporters that Henry Kissinger, the man of detente, the man of slow surrender to the Communists, would have no part in a Reagan administration. Reagan understood that Kissinger, no matter how high his prestige in the party, represented the opposite of his own principles, so he kept him out of any policy making role.

By contrast, Sarah Palin does not understand that McCain represents the opposite of her supposed principles. Which leads to the reasonable inference that she does not even have those principles, or at least that she does not have them in any way that counts."

{snip}

David Levin writes: [...] I saw what McCain and other powerful RINOs were doing last year, recruiting young RINOs to run for office seeing the Tea Party anger and knowing this year's election could be a boon for the GOP. Not one of the people McCain is backing is a conservative. Then, I got involved with a rock-ribbed conservative friend who's running for Dick Gephardt's old seat in So. St. Louis. He has no money and the designated RINO (Ed Martin) who he has to get past in the primary--if he runs as a Republican--has money from the RNC and MRP ... but is tainted by the Email Scandal that brought down former Gov. Blunt. Other conservative candidates for Congress I've contacted all have the same problem--not having the RNC behind them. The RNC (ie McCain & Co) are backing RINOs, only....

I'm afraid Sarah is becoming just another establishment politician; bought and paid for by the same powerful corporations/lobbyists the rest of the politicians answer to.

DJ and M/M,

What is the difference between Palin's campaigning in AZ for the man who made her possible, and M/M's 'campaigning' for Don Imus's Man Friday, Bernard McGuirk who, in a recent chat with Imus, said "OUR John McCain"?


PS Now Ronald Reagan's reaction to Henry Kissinger is mentioned in context of Sarah Palin and John McCain. As far as I know, Henry Kissinger had nothing to do with the rise of Ronald Reagan. Au contraire, Kissinger was a Rockefeller apparatchik. The Rockefellers were not known to be palsy-walsy with the "cowboy" upstarts from the West, like Ronald Reagan. Now some are quoting Reagan on his antipathy to Kissinger, as if Reagan put principle over personal obligation and rebuffed somebody who had found him in the desert and piggy-backed him onto the national stage. Reagan obviously had no huge obligation to Kissinger. He didn't owe him a freckle off his back.

Is this Reagan/Palin comparison an example of political insight by "true conservatives," , or just a false analogy by political dunces?

Dj, ON THE MONEY. Sister Sarah is going to have to make a choice.

I don't have her number or I'd be sending her this one as a ringtone:

RUPERT HOLMES lyrics - Him

--> Send "Him" Ringtone to Sarah Palin's Cell


Over by the window
There's a pack of cigarettes
Not my brand you understand
Sometimes the girl forgets
She forgets to hide them
I know who left those smokes behind
She'll say, oh, he's just a friend
And I'll say, oh, I'm not blind to

Him, him, him, what's she gonna do about him
She's gonna have to do without him
It's him or it's me, me, me
No one gets to get it for free
It's me or it's him

Don't know what he looks like
Don't know who he is
Don't know why she thought that I
Would say what's mine is his
I dont want to own her
But I can't let her have it both ways
Three is one too many of us
She leaves with me or stays with

Him, him, him, what's she gonna do about him
She's gonna have to live without him
It's him or it's me, me, me
No one gets to get it for free
It's me or it's him

If she wants him she can have him
Just exactly how we once were
It's goodbye to he and I
Back to me and her
Without

Him, him, him, what's she gonna do about him
She's gonna have to do without him
Or do without me, me, me
No one gets to get it for free
Time for me to make the girl see
It's me or it's him, him, him
What's she gonna do about him
She's gonna have to do without him
Or do without me, me, me
No one gets to get it for free
Time for me to make the girl see
It's me or it's him

Michelle Obama Responds to Palin's Pokes
First Lady: 'Change ... Certainly Doesn't Happen in a Year'

By LEE FERRAN, JAKE TAPPER and HUMA KHAN

Michelle Obama's comments came in response to recent criticism from Sarah Palin, who told Tea Party conventioneers in Nashville, Tenn., this weekend that she wants to ask Obama supporters, "How is that hope-y, change-y stuff working out for you?"

gringoNOTE: Yet another reason for liberals, RINOS and even some "conservatives" to dismiss Sarah Palin: She's too good with soundbites...........


Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin has mastered the art of the political soundbite and has used it to devastating -- and some would say irresponsible -- effect since emerging on the political scene in the fall of 2008.

Witness her speech at the national tea party convention over the weekend in Nashville, Tennessee.

"America is ready for another revolution," Palin said.

"When you're 0 for 3, you had better stop lecturing and start listening," she scolded the Obama Administration.

"How's that hopey, changy stuff working out?" she asked supporters of the president.

"We win, they lose," Palin responded when asked about her approach to the war on terror.

Palin's way with a folksy zinger is nothing new; it can be traced directly back to her emergence on the national stage at the 2008 Republican National Convention.

From her infamous "the difference between a pit bull and a hockey mom" line through "death panels" and right up to her speech last Saturday night, it's clear that whatever her other weaknesses in the political arena -- and they are considerable -- Palin understands how to deliver a soundbite.

Obama has invited the Democratic and Republican leadership to a health care meeting Feb. 25 at Blair House, across the street from the White House. The president told CBS News' Katie Couric in a pre-Super Bowl interview Sunday that he wants to look at specific Republican ideas, and that he will question them about what they intend to do about the health crisis facing the United States.

--

DON'T TAKE THE BAIT!!

They're trying to drag the Republicans onto their turf where it's easier for them to win the battle.

Make no mistake about it - A BATTLE IT IS!

Once he gets this passed he and John-boy will be working on Shamnesty next.

Which is one more reason it is absolutely VITAL that McCain is retired for good.

Hang 'em up, John and take your r******d daughter with you!

Progressivism is a CANCER, as Glenn Beck points out. We should leave it to the Doublecrats.

Ummah:

Were I an Arizonan, I would welcome Sarah Palin doing what she has to do, i.e. paying off a truly gigantic personal debt. Would it bother me some? Yes, it would. But it would bother me even more if she did what the Greek goddess of wisdom did not do. Athena, after sprouting full-grown from the brow of Zeus, did NOT turn her back on him in the time of his need, despite her having many personal differences with him (Athena was never too happy, either, to hear of his frolicing with mortal damsels down below on earth. She found it so unbecoming of a god.)

I would understand Sarah Palin answering the call of John McCain in the AZ Election. I would smile kindly on her. I might even attend an election rally and cheer her. And on Election Day? Well, that should be obvious. On Election Day I would vote for John McCain's best opponent.

The White House’s Health Care Summit

The Associated Press begins their report on this story thusly:

WASHINGTON – Could this turn into something more than political theater? President Barack Obama’s televised dialogue with Republican lawmakers on health care, promised for later this month, has the makings of an entertaining exchange. But the differences between the basic Democratic and GOP ideas are stark — and the two sides have increasingly hardened their positions in this election year.

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20100208/ap_on_bi_ge/us_health_care_overhaul

How would AP, as part of the fringe left media, aka the Democratic Party Pravda, know the differences between GOP and Democratic ideas?

So far, the “negotiations” on health care “reform” have been conducted by Democrats…especially regressive socialist Democrats. All attempts to reconcile differences between the House and Senate bills have been conducted behind closed doors, to the exclusion of all but the most regressive of the regressive and the most socialist of the socialist. Since day one, they’ve intentionally excluded Republicans from the conversation. The few times that the bills have been to the open floor for debate, each and every Republican amendment has been voted down along straight Party lines. Regressive socialists have repeatedly and consistently made proclamations about how the GOP has offered no ideas, and that the GOP’s sole contribution to the process has been to follow a path of obstruction.

Anyone who’s familiar with basic math can see that the Republicans were at such a numerical disadvantage im both the House and the Senate that alone, they were powerless to stop the regressive socialist’s agenda.

Enter: We The People. The Tea Parties. The Townhall attendees. Then, our trips to the ballot box.

Now, after a string of stinging political defeats, the White House occupant decides to show interest in Republican ideas? I don’t think so. He knows no consensus will be reached. Who is he trying to kid?

This is yet another feint by a basketball player who fakes right before going hard left. There’s absolutely nothing in his background that indicates even a modicum of centrality.

This is posturing, pure and simple. After a “breakdown of negotiation” with “inflexible obstructionists”, regressive socialists will resume their attacks, based on falsehood, upon the GOP. The only difference will be that they’ll cloak themselves in the robe of “we tried unsuccessfully to reach out to them” victimhood.

As always AP, along with the other members of the fringe left media, will take the lies and repeat them ad naseum.

Remember this the next time you step into a voting booth.

------

Gringoman,

With all due respect, I’m not sure if that's a valid comparison. M/M’s ‘campaigning’ for Bernard, who supports McCain, has zero consequences for the country (no offence M/M).

On the other hand, Sarah Palin’s support of McCain could very well result in long-term negative consequences; not only for her career, but the future of our country. I’ve little doubt McCain will get reelected with or without Sarah’s support. All the big money and power is lined up behind him, plus the fact it’s pretty damned hard to unseat an incumbent. But there IS the possibility J.D. Haworth (a non-RINO) COULD win given the current political climate! Gringoman, do you think it will reflect kindly on Sarah if McCain wins and then votes to pass amnesty and cap and trade and some form of socialized health-care and other leftist policies? Do you not think Sarah will, rightly or wrongly, be held indirectly responsible for McCain’s traitorous behavior? If McCain gets reelected and behaves like he has in the past, then I can foresee a scenario where Sarah could become more reviled on the right -- even the in center where I'm at -- than she currently is on the left … all because she supported the King of the isle crawling RINO’s. But I'll defer to your better judgement.

LGF Exclusive: Bill Ayers' 'Prairie Fire' in PDF Form
Politics | Sat, Nov 1, 2008 at 3:55:24 pm PDT

A little green birdie dropped off a package for us; the PDF version of Barack Obama associates “Billy” Ayers’ and Bernardine Dohrn’s 1974 communist declaration of war against the United States.

Includes the dedication to Sirhan Sirhan, assassin of Robert F. Kennedy, on page 5.

You may have read about this book, or seen it mentioned on Hannity and Colmes, but you cannot appreciate how radically insane and violent it is until you read it for yourself.
