Palin’s Principles Prevail as Scozzafava Steps Aside

Posted by Adrienne Ross on October 31, 2009

By Adrienne Ross – http://www.motivationtruth.com

Dede Scozzafava, Republican Candidate for the NY 23rd Congressional District, has now withdrawn from the race, as reported first by Robert Stacy McCain.

As you recall, Monday I posted an article called “Sarah Palin: Principles Over Party? In a New York Minute!” I discussed the fact that Scozzafava was not a candidate representing true conservative values, which is why Sarah Palin endorsed Conservative-Party candidate Doug Hoffman. Governor Palin chose principles over party. Others, including Fred Thompson, Rick Santorum, and Tim Pawlenty also made that choice, while Newt Gingrich chose to endorse Scozzafava, offering lame excuses, and Mitt Romney and Mike Huckabee chose to say nothing at all.

This is what sets people like Sarah Palin apart from other politicians. Palin’s endorsement created a stir, as everything she says always does. Gingrich said that as an outsider Palin and others had no right to go against the wishes of the GOP in New York who chose the candidate they wanted. Other talking-heads said that Hoffman’s running on the Conservative ticket would only split the vote and ensure a victory for Democrat Bill Owens; to these confused souls, Palin would say this, as she wrote in her endorsement note on Facebook:

Unfortunately, the Republican Party today has decided to choose a candidate who more than blurs the lines, and there is no real difference between the Democrat and the Republican in this race.

Somehow the talking-heads have missed that point.

Sarah has said time and again that Americans are tired of politics as usual. Conservatives are looking for people who will stand for something. We’re seeking out those who don’t sell out principles by endorsing someone who is the antithesis of what we are supposed to represent. And we are searching for leaders who don’t go hide, refusing to say anything at all. We want people who will do what Governor Palin does: lay it all on the line and call it as she sees it.

Once again, she was right. She had no way of knowing the outcome; she merely acted on principles.

The race is not over. Election Day is Tuesday, and it’ll be Hoffman vs. Owens. That still has to play out, but it was clear that Scozzafava was not going to win, so she pulled out, leaving a true conservative candidate in Hoffman. Sarah Palin’s endorsement was one of a few important ones, but it seems to be the one that changed the face of the race. She created a shift for Hoffman–in support and finances–and she didn’t wait until Hoffman had surpassed Scozzafava to do it or wait until Scozzafava backed out. Compare that to Newt Gingrich and Mike Huckabee who have now, just today, endorsed Hoffman.

Some so-called “experts” say Sarah Palin has no future in national politics and doesn’t have the political savvy to be a serious force on the world stage. Well, for someone who’s supposed to be the least of these, she sure is out in front, while people like Newt Gingrich and Mike Huckabee follow her lead.
