Who knew Sarah Palin was such a Democrat?

You have to love Sarah Palin.  You have to love Todd Palin.  You just have to love anyone with a last name of Palin.  I know I do.  I love them a lot.

Is it her ability to distill an issue to an unrecognizable soundbite that makes no sense?  Well, as much as I love that, no.  Is it her ability to grab media attention that makes her look ridiculous?  Again yes but no.  Is it the fascination the GOP has with her and her lack of knowledge about politics or world events?  No.

I love that the Palins have endorsed Newt Gingrich because he is doing more for President Obama than David Axelrod.  And while I am at it thank you rich casino guy for funding Newt and keeping him in the race.

Look, I have said this before and I guess I am about to say it again, the GOP missed the boat when they didn’t give Jon Huntsman a real chance.  Being sane does not equal being a moderate or liberal.  And I never did thank Governor Huntsman for his comment that gay marriage “doesn’t threaten” his marriage.  Good for you, I have never understood how one marriage threatens another but what do I know?  I am a liberal Democrat who grew up in New York and San Francisco.  Oh, and I like brie and chardonnay, I am a walking stereotype.

Back to the Palins.  They have both endorsed Newt, not sure why Todd thought his endorsement matters.  Then again I am not sure why CNN felt the need to send out a news alert about Donald Trumo endorsing Romney.

The bottom line is that the GOP is giving people with no real standing so much attention and it’s a good thing for the Democrats.

    Hi Alyson, I’ve been having trouble bringing up your posts for some reason. I eventually had to go into archives to bring them up.

    Yes, Palin is the gift that keeps on giving. How McCain ever chose her for his running mate beggars belief. I’ll be on an Alaskan cruise in June that visits Juneau. Maybe I’ll see Sarah! Now wouldn’t that be exciting…

    I think McCain was just so bitter that he could not pick Lieberman — this, by the way, would have a. broken my heart and b. caused me to cease to exist. I wouldn’t have died, just disappeared from the planet. I worked on the Gore/Lieberman campaign and did a number of trips for him and his wife — advance work is hard and if he had become the GOP VP candidate, well, again — cease to exist. So he went with Palin. I have not read “Game Change” — I should, but I’ll probably just watch the movie.

    Thanks for letting me know about the troubles getting to the site. Do you go to the main page http://alysonchadwick.com or to the individual posts that you get? My mom mentioned an issue, too and I am going to contact WordPress about it. I am not sure what’s going on there — what browser do you use?

    You always make my day with your comments, thanks!

      I’ve been clicking on the individual posts and get an “Error 401” message. I use Google Chrome, but I don’t recall any problems before. My pleasure to comment when I do get to get in. ;o)

    Yeah, you gotta love those guys. If Newt wins the nomination, it’s another four years of Obama without even trying. Mitt – well, maybe a little trying…

    Snowy — I will look into that.

    Mary — thanks for reading and commenting. I know it seems like they are making it easy (and clearly I am not anti-that thought) but then I got thinking about the Mets and their historic collapse of 2007 and well, the Dems are pretty good at snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.
