Earlier today, GretaWire broke the news that both Governor Sarah Palin and Todd Palin have endorsed Deb Fischer (R-NE) who is running for the U.S. Senate. At time of writing, neither SarahPAC nor Palin’s Facebook page has been updated to reflect this newest endorsement.
Lincoln, NE – Today, Senator Deb Fischer, a Republican candidate for U.S. Senate in Nebraska, announced that she has been endorsed by former Alaska Governor and Vice Presidential Candidate Sarah Palin and her husband Todd Palin.
“I’m incredibly honored to receive the endorsement of Governor Sarah Palin and Todd Palin. I greatly admire their willingness to stand on conservative principle and their resolve in standing up to the political establishment,” said Senator Deb Fischer.
“Our campaign is grassroots powered and focused on conservative policy solutions that will change the course of this nation. I’m a wife, mother, rancher, small business owner, and citizen legislator, not a career politician. To change Washington, we need to send a different type of person there. That’s why I’m running for U.S. Senate.” More

Remember waaaay back in 2008 when there was a presidential campaign in this country and Sarah Palin was nominated as the GOP’s vice presidential candidate? Do you remember the energy that Palin brought to that campaign? The crowds? The quick rise in polling for the McCain/Palin ticket? I do too. Tony Lee has written a very comprehensive piece on the meme that Sarah Palin was not vetted. This is one you don’t want to miss reading.
From Big Journalism:
Winston Churchill said “history is written by the victors.” But too often in politics, where professional tacticians want to preserve their permanent paychecks by deflecting their mistakes onto everyone but themselves, losers often desperately attempt to re-write history.
And that is exactly what GOP establishment operatives, aided and abetted by members of the mainstream media who want to preserve access to them, are now doing to the history of the 2008 presidential campaign, as they attempt to blame Palin–and, by association, non-establishment grassroots conservatives–for their own professional malpractice during that campaign.
In nearly every recent story written about Romney’s vice presidential selection process, a GOP operative is quoted saying something in the vein of “Palin’s shadow hangs over the selection process.”
For example, Sara Fagen, George W. Bush’s political director, told the Associated Press, “There’s one thing the people in the Republican establishment agree on: There was clearly not a thorough thought process or vetting that went into the selection of Sarah Palin. They didn’t ask the fundamental questions or spend enough time with her…”. More

It seems that Governor Sarah Palin will have huge presence at the 2012 Republican National Convention. The release of the required FEC Disclosure Report for SarahPAC reveals a deposit of $4,500.00 for space at the Channelside Bay Mall. This action creates questions for this writer with regards to the size of the space, the length of time Governor Palin will have space and whether or not this will this be a public venue or a private area for interviews and special guests.
You can find other stories related to this topic at Politico and at the Tampa Bay Times.

In all honesty, there’s not a day that goes by that I don’t think of just how different this GOP primary season would have been with Sarah Palin in the mix. Timothy Stanley, an Oxford University historian, correctly (in my opinion) lays out what this presidential campaign season might have looked like had Governor Sarah Palin declared her candidacy.
(CNN) — The Republican presidential primary hasn’t exactly overflowed with talent. In December, it was a roll call of the undesirable Right: Romney, Santorum, Gingrich, Paul, Perry, Huntsman and Bachmann — a list so long and bizarre that Count Dracula could have slipped in on the end and no one would have noticed. Except, as the citizens of Chicago will tell you, the dead always vote Democrat.
Now, we’re down to a final three, discounting Ron Paul, who, I’m guessing, is only staying in the race to collect air miles. Although the talent pool has shrunk, it has gotten no deeper. As Mitt Romney suffers defeat after defeat at the hands of Rick Santorum, whose chances of winning this thing aren’t high, his negatives mount up, and the president looks stronger by the day. The Republican Party is divided and in danger of becoming out of touch.
It didn’t have to be this way. If Sarah Palin had entered the contest, I’d hypothesize two alternative realities. One, she’d have the nomination sewn up by now. Two, she’d be running even in the polls with the president.
What have proved to be problems for the top three candidates wouldn’t have been problems for Palin. For starters, she has none of Newt Gingrich’s intellectual hubris. There’s no way Palin would have promised to put a mine on the moon or suggest arresting judges who make decisions that are too liberal. Her conservatism is far more domestic and down-to-Earth. More

Posted to Sarah Palin’s Facebook page earlier today:
I look at the far Left’s assault on Wisconsin and I say, “Are you kidding?” As an outsider (albeit an admitted Green Bay fan with family roots in Chippewa Falls), I join millions of Americans watching the political shenanigans in Wisconsin. I am torn between just chuckling at these radical liberal yahoos trying to oust an intelligent administration that is fulfilling its promises, or raising a fist in disgust at people sitting on their thumbs while Governor Walker and Lt. Governor Kleefisch get thrown to the wolves.
Wisconsin, you deserve better than this!
You’re the “Forward” state – part of the breadbasket that feeds America. Deep woods, pristine waters, esteemed academic institutions, and shining cities reside alongside the dairy farms dotting your picturesque landscape carved out by generations of hard working Americans. In their honor, and to assist the other 49 states, please continue to go forward; don’t let 80 million political dollars – from outside special interests – convince you to go backward toward debt, high taxes, unemployment, and shuttered industry.
You don’t have to let those millions of outside dollars flooding your state destroy the records and reputations of your Governor and Lt. Governor, nor should the political dollars dictate your state’s destiny. You have a choice: Retreat, or fight for the positive reform you elected in 2010.
Governor Walker has left the far Left unhinged, so he’s had to amass a war chest to fend off the lies and dirty dealings in the capitol; and, thankfully, it’s predicted he’ll survive his recall.
But the recall fight that is just as important is Lt. Governor Rebecca Kleefisch’s. Please click this link to help her.
She’s being thrown beyond the wolf pack – she’s also under the GOP establishment’s bus because this Tea Party “Mama Grizzly” beat the establishment candidate when she got elected. (And dang, it’s uncomfortable under that chassis!) Rebecca must be thinking, “With friends like these, who needs enemies?” Worse than seeing radical Leftists attack and make things up about a Conservative female opponent is when supporters on the Right sit on their thumbs and act as if there’s nothing they can do to help. Come on! When all else fails you can at least tell the truth! Tell other voters why you supported Rebecca in the first place. Explain her campaign promises and how she has stuck to them and – surprising in today’s political world – is actually fulfilling them. She promised to help balance the budget, cut taxes, build a sound fiscal environment, and provide job opportunities for all Wisconsin residents – not only our union brothers and sisters. She’s setting an example for every other state in the union because responsible state and local governments will be the entities that defend our Republic at a time when there is less and less reason to believe our big centralized federal government will address its self-perpetuated economic problems.

The following was posted to Sarah Palin’s Facebook page approximately one hour ago. In reading some of the comments from Facebook readers, it’s clear that many people do not understand that Palin is merely quoting Vice President Biden’s remark that was caught on an open microphone.
Funny how Palin has been deemed “irrelevant” yet a simple post garners over 1200 comments and some 1500 shares in approximately one hour. Yeah, she’s irrelevant all right. NOT!
Mr. President, you’re conspicuously absent from the 2-year anniversary of your “greatest accomplishment” (described by your VP as “a big f***ing deal”). Where’s the party? Concerned citizens around the country recognized the 2-year anniversary of Obamacare by protesting its attack on religious liberty. Oral arguments on Obamacare start next Monday, March 26, before the Supreme Court. Voting out Obama starts on Nov. 6.
