Tea Party ImPalined!

Tea Party California Senate candidate Tom Cambpell was just imPalined in favor of Fiorna:

Why? Palin says Fiorina is more electable. In fact, that's not at all clear (see comment below). And Fiorina has a lot of problems with her conservative cred on cap and trade and other issues.

Palin is the Tea Party patron saint. Um, maybe soon to be "was" rather than is, as they wake up to the fact that the rest of us knew for a while - Palin is never what she claims to be.

Really, why? Maybe all that establishment/Murdoch money Palin has been vacuuming up is messing up her head. Maybe that was Palin's plan all along as she used the Tea Party as a platform to increase her popularity, which in her new found status translates directly into more dollar signs in speaking engagements, TV appearances on Fox, book sales and so on.

"Campbell campaign spokeswoman Erin Daly said that "there is not a single poll" that says Fiorina would be the strongest Republican candidate against Boxer.

"I know that Carly continues to say that, but unfortunately, there's no credibility behind that," she said."

So which is it? Is Palin right and the Tea Party is not electable, and Campbell is a liar? Or is Palin throwing her supporters under the bus in a political deal? Unfortunately, methinks both.

It's funny how much power and authority the left bestows on Palin, someone they hate, and fear, with such ardor.

Yup! SP is showing her true colors.

I've got a bet with my BIL: I say SP will run for pres in 2012; he says she won't. Loser buys the winner dinner at Bonefish. Imo, her ego is just too big NOT to run.

I believe Jesse Jackson runs every year doesn't he?


Palin will not come close to making a serious bid, but it doesn't mean she won't toss her hat in the ring like so many others.

I agree Palin will run for President asap in 2012. It would be a huge ego boost. She feels like the McCain campaign did not let her do it her way as VP and wants to show them up by being successful on her own.

And, to her mind, why not? She doesn't see how divisive and poorly equipped a political figure she is. She's probably thinking the only downside for her is a bunch of book royalties from a book about her campaign and increased speaking fees due to her increased "importance" as a political figure.

I think she dumped Alaska halfway through her term as Governor to have time enough to make a bunch of bucks before she runs for President.

I know. The same folks just keep bringing her up again and again. I always enjoy the attempts to smear her. She is very powerful in the media....and they just can't stand it. But....they keep her in the limelight.

Shhhhhh......they haven't figured out yet that any publicity (good or bad) is good publicity.

LOL!

Some of us have really clear lenses, unlike many with tinted ones. Hearing ability and arterial integrity also help in processing information. Perhaps by "they" you mean "we"?

LOL! I never said I supported the lady. In fact, I would not vote for her for President. I just have to laugh at the hysteria that she tends to whip up with all of the people on these boards. It's always the same ones.....try as they might to smear her and trash her.

It's actually quite comical. What power she has over them all! And they just can't stand it. But somehow, they feel they MUST keep talking about her.

It's VERY entertaining. ;-)

Hmmmm...because I find SP's utterances amusing, she has power over me? That's a strange definition of "power".

Hey, I know...I think I'll vote for the inexperienced "hope and change" guy! He'll be able to run the country!
