UH-OH! Another Grassroots Conservative offends Senate Republicans

I guess Sarah Palin might want to be president, and that is not sitting too well with the usual suspects who think they should decide which Republicans run for what offices.

Sarah Palin has begun to get on the nerves of Republican senators who say the former GOP vice presidential nominee is taking her own White House aspirations entirely too seriously.

But those same senators may have their eye on a 2012 White House run or be friends with senators with presidential ambitions. And Palin, who does not have a lot of Washington connections, energized the party’s grass roots in 2008 while bucking the D.C. establishment, leaving much of the party’s elite grumbling about her appeal to the conservative base.

Ah, yes, she is too, you know, too much like those DAMNED Conservatives! And worst of all? Why she does not appeal to who the RINOs really care about!

>“Democrats and the media] did a number on her,” said the lawmaker from the southern battleground. “She has some hurdles, especially among independents and Democrats.

“She lost support among the independents and moderate Republicans, and a lot of them give money,” the lawmaker added.

My take on that? GOOD! They have not won to many elections for the GOP now have they?

In fact Lance Burri of Troglo Pundit sums up my feelings about them, and their RINO boot lickers Yeah, well, some of us are pretty irritated with them, too.

Amen to that! The GOP leadeship needs to get it straight, we need the Palins and Rubios to run, and to get the support of the GOP leadership!

I have said it before, and I say it again, the GOP leadership needs to stop telling themselves how smart they are and start listening to the people! You remember the people right?


  1. Palin should play "chicken" with the GOP and threaten to run as an indy. We'll see how cocky they are when they realize how much she would take away from their pathetic candidates. They better man up and realize what they've got in the 'Cuda. They're dead in the water without her.

  2. I'm not sure she could possibly do worse than the Usurper in Chief. She's a Hell of a lot more on the ball than Biden. And if I have to watch a woman age in the white house, I'd rather it be Palin than Clinton. (shudder) Just thinking of another Clinton sitting in the Oval Office gives me the creeps.

    I voted for the Palin name during the last election and I'd vote for her again. At least she's walking the walk, as far as I can see.

  3. “She lost support among the independents and moderate Republicans, and a lot of them give money,” the lawmaker added.


    Moderates go either way by definition.. it's the base that gives money because they believe in the cause. Talking about Telcoms or some other fortune 500 company, then they tend to hedge the bets and donate on both sides of the isle.
