I am solidly within THS's camp on this issue
We can do without witches in 2012, but we could sure use a little intra-conservative “she may be a witch, but she’s OUR witch” sense of unity. How COULD they ~ and I do mean every last conservative/GOP columnist ~ not rise up IMMEDIATELY and give rise to a vociferous, continuous, FEROCIOUS defense? Sarah Palin’s presidential qualifications/aspirations (or lack thereof) aside: can the party withstand it’s own pundits allowing their vested self interest to override truth and decency itself, if it means a potential rival may have her kneecaps bludgeoned as a party to mass murder? How despicable!Quite so. And as Jacobson points out, although Palin may be the current lightning rod of elitist condescension, every Republican who is perceived by the leftist hive and their fellow travelers in the “center” as a viable threat to the ideology of the Democratic party is going to get the same treatment.
As I have said often, and recently, I would love to see Palin win the presidency, if only because she is hated by all the right people. And it is my opinion that she has a much better chance of winning the Republican nomination than most people think (and of beating Obama, if she does). Furthermore, I think she’d make a great president (in any event, can you imagine her being a worse president than Barry?)
Or would you rather have Huckabee?
Update: Looks like I cited the right blog, but not the right blogger. It was Tree Hugging Sister, not Mr. Bingley, who wrote that post at Coalition of the Swilling (I have made the correction). Not that Bingley isn't estimable, of course...
