A Republican friend of mine said the other day, "Palin is killing us!" I could not agree more. Sarah Palin is the wild card for the Republican Party and the Ace-in-the-Hole for Democrats. As she crisscross around the Country in her "One Nation" tour bus Palin is overshadowing her fellow Republican Presidential hopefuls. The question is why? Is it to whip up the base? Maybe it's as Palin said, "To make sure that people are aware of the good things in America." Exactly how this bus tour is going to accomplish this I'm not sure, and I would bet neither is she.
What is happening is that sincere Republicans that really want, like the rest of us, to have a safe, prosperous country are being used by fear mongers and charlatans. Even though I agree with some of the issues and concerns espoused by Republicans, I could never support them as a political party due to the fact that they have allowed right-wing extremist, neo-fascist and opportunist to hijack their Party. Sarah Palin, Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, and even their darling Mike Huckabee, who was too busy building his $3 million dollar home in Florida to run for President, are using these Republicans for their own personal gain.
No, Palin is good for Democrats. She has no intention of running for President of the United States. That would mean she would have to give up her lucrative position as a commentator for Fox News. Palin will hang around long enough to fill her PAC with millions of dollars from her gullible supporters, stroke her enormous ego, and do enough damage to help President Obama clinch a second term. Thanks Sarah.
