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.
