Replace Akin with Steelman!

Posted by Roderic Deane on August 20, 2012

It’s really the best choice. Sarah Steelman has unquestioned conservative credentials and garnered the endorsement of Governor Sarah Palin, for crying out loud!

That fact has to roil the GOPe in Missouri. All the other candidates that have been floated are moderate at best and not likely to capture the enthusiasm of the Tea Party.

Without a doubt, the GOPe’s preferred candidates will lose in November, and for what? Bragging rights?

No, the best bet for the Missouri GOP is to put Steelman in place of Todd Akin. If she wins, they can puff out their chests and say “We knew what we were doing!”

If she loses, they can claim that they caved under pressure from the Tea Party, knowing that Sarah Steelman would get waxed by her Democratic opponent.

Hey Missouri GOP! You have nothing to lose by replacing Akin with Steelman!

Palin: DAN BONGINO FOR U.S. SENATE

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on August 20, 2012

Governor Palin has endorsed another candidate for United States Senate and this time the nod goes to Dan Bongino of Maryland.  Palin tweeted the following message of support:

DAN BONGINO FOR U.S. SENATE Though political pundits often dismiss conservative candidates running in deep blue… http://fb.me/1Rq0uH9GH

Palin’s endorsement message as posted to her Facebook page:

Though political pundits often dismiss conservative candidates running in deep blue states, I don’t believe in ignoring good candidates simply because they’re fighting uphill battles against the odds. In fact, I find such candidates incredibly brave and especially worthy of encouragement. In many cases, they are often the most articulate and courageous new conservative voices out there.

In 2012, we must cede no ground in our effort to win back control of the Senate and secure the House. We must fight every race to make sure we equip our next President with a wise Congress ready to work for all Americans. We also owe it to voters in every state — even the deep blue ones — to support good candidates for office so that they have a genuine choice in November. That is why I’m honored to announce my support for Dan Bongino in his Senate race in the “deep blue state” of Maryland. Dan is not a politician, but he has spent his career protecting them. He is a decorated United States Secret Service agent who served under three Presidents. Dan has seen what politicians have done to our country, and he’s decided, “If I’m not part of the solution, I’m part of the problem.” He based his candidacy for U.S. Senate in Maryland on a strong commonsense conservative platform, won his primary, and is now fighting an uphill battle against a 45-year career politician who in fact inherited his first political office from his uncle at the tender age of 23 way back in 1967 and has been in elected office ever since.

This is more than just a race of Republican vs. Democrat or conservative vs. liberal. It’s about taking our country back from the career politicians in both parties who have spent us into debt, nearly taxed us to death, enriched themselves, rewarded their cronies at our expense, and have no vision to help the private sector create the jobs we need to get this economy moving again. They are the reason why Congress’ approval rating is at an all-time low. In supporting Dan Bongino, we are offering Maryland voters a clear choice either to continue with the failed policies and crony capitalism of the permanent political class, or to shake things up with Dan Bongino and cast a vote that helps put our country back on the path to prosperity.

Beyond Bizarre: Susan Estrich: “Blame Palin If Ryan Drags Romney Down”

Posted by M.Joseph Sheppard At Palin4President2016 on August 20, 2012

I have to file this under “Palin 2016,” as it is otherwise so bizarre, and frankly, just plain nuts, that I can’t honestly see it fitting in the current presidential campaign.

Susan Estrich has penned a very odd column, “Mitt Romney Steps Into Vice-Presidential Trap Set By Sarah Palin”  AT THIS LINK, which includes, not once but twice, this statement “So blame Palin if  Ryan ends up dragging Mitt Romney down – as I think he will.”

Estrich gets history wrong right from the start by advising that “conventional wisdom” advised that vice-presidential candidates don’t end up (until Palin!) mattering very much by November.

This ignores, either through ignorance or by deliberate omission, the vital role that Lyndon Johnson played in JFK’s narrow victory by holding the South for Kennedy. Arguably, Lieberman’s selection might have put Gore within a few hundred votes in Florida, and there are other examples from history where the VP selection was highly significant, if not the crucial factor.

What I can gather from her column is that she believes that VP candidates don’t matter, or didn’t until Palin and Palin, in Estrich’s view, as I read it, caused McCain to lose. Thus stretching the “logic” as taut as it can go,  because Palin made VP candidates matter, then the perceived faults of Ryan, as she sees them, will, because he matters when he wouldn’t have if Palin had not been chosen, will cause Romney to lose!

Well, we are used to Palin being the whipping girl for all sorts of leftist fantasies and Machiavellian attacks, but putting the blame on Palin for Ryan causing Romney to lose is a new one and takes the Palin Derangement Syndrome (which mostly comes from females, I note sadly) to giddy new heights.

Lets say that Estrich has not lost her marbles (although as the designer of the bizarre vote and then caucus 2008 Texas Democratic Party primary, which even she admitted was odd, which caused Hillary Clinton to win one and lose the other, one has to consider that with caution), and consider why Estrich would attack Palin in this weird way.

I honestly can’t figure it out, beyond the marbles scenario. Possible reasons are that Estrich and the rest of the Dems count this election as over, as President Obama said to Putin some time ago, and are looking at Palin as a possible candidate in 2016. Why else would they continue to attack someone they consider “irrelevant”?

It may be that, f that is the correct guess, Estrich is trying to make up for her guilt in helping to rob Hillary Clinton of the 2008 nomination through her ridiculous Texas primary set-up. Thus by attacking Palin, she is assisting Clinton if she runs against Palin?

Make no mistake, the 2016 election is under way already. Palin has visited Iowa’s top money man; Jeb Bush, Rick Perry, and Chris Christie have all said they would consider running; and the Bush forces have been attacking Palin for some time. It might well be that Estrich is also looking to 2016, or is in a strange place.
Apart from advising that Estrich managed arguably the worst election campaign, apart from McGovern’s, in US presidential history – that of Michael Dukakis – Wikepedia advises:

Estrich was very outspoken during the 2008 presidential race, particularly on the subject of women in politics in light of the candidacies of Hillary Clinton and Sarah Palin. Estrich supported Clinton in the Democratic primaries[13] but was strongly critical of Palin.[14]
