Campaigns are dropping like flies recently. Mitt Romney, the fair-haired boy of the Republican establishment, is off to a decidedly slow start, fostered mostly by public reaction to a couple of very unpopular policy issues. And now, the entire top tier of Newt Gingrich’s campaign staff has quit… fifteen in number, as I heard it.
Who’s next? Can’t blame Sarah for any of this, though the Palin haters would probably try. As I recall, Newtie hasn’t been very kind to Sarah Palin, himself.
I’ve tried to analyze what it is about Sarah Palin that causes this visceral reaction amongst the left, hard left and loony tunes et al. The fear part I get. You see, the left sees in Sarah Palin, and correctly I might add, the potential destruction of the Democrat party… at least, as it exists now.
They know what I, and an awful lot of people just like me, know… that Sarah Palin is as solid a conservative as they come. Not only that, but she’s one hell of a lot smarter than almost all of the cretinous backbiters who’ve been taking shots at her, and really cheap shots at that, from the safety of their keyboards.
I can’t remember when anyone has been so viciously and unjustly vilified. The Republican RINOs hate and fear her because they know she would mean the end of their status quo sinecures… and a lot else around Washington, to boot. And yes, she can easily defeat Obama.
Rick Santorum has entered the fray with a powerful message of fiscal responsibility and a return to a strong constitutional governance. He sounds good, folks. And, his message is starting to resonate.
We’re getting rumbles out of Governor Perry of Texas again. For those of you enamored with him, I suggest you go on the net and read what his own constituents have to say about him.
If it walks like a RINO….
Semper Vigilans, Semper Fidelis
