Ok this is going to be very short but Sarah Palin is forgetting something when she says things like this, referring to Scott Brown:
“But up here in Alaska, and so many places across the U.S., where we have a pioneering, independent spirit, and we have an expectation that our representatives in D.C. will respect the will of the people and the intelligence of the people — well, up here, we wouldn’t stand for that.”
Uh, Ok. Let’s not talk about the fact that Sarah Palin couldn’t ever be anyone’s Senator here in Massachusetts (nor would she want to be.) Or that she decided to quit her job as Governor of Alaska to persue what she’s currently doing. It’s beside the point, even according to her.
Instead we should remember something else. If we’re going to talk about judgment, let’s remember whose Vice Presidential candidate pick she was, and how enthusiastically she accepted that job. Does anyone remember who that guy was? Because she was willing to be his Vice President, and she wanted it really badly. And a lot of us held our noses and went along with that, at the time.
What I read from this and the past few days’ events is that we’re looking at McCain/Palin again in 2012, along with Romney/Brown. Redstate’s editors should buy a pallet of Pepto Bismol right now.
