Sarah Palin, who couldn't fulfill her elected position as governor of Alaska feels qualified to endorse Brian Murphy for governor of my state? Really?

From the article:

"Murphy, whose investments include a small bakery on Smith Island, has portrayed himself as having more business acumen than Ehrlich. Murphy has also sought to lump Ehrlich and O'Malley together on taxes and spending issues, arguing that he represents a clean break from the past eight years. Ehrlich has, for the most part, ignored Murphy."

Now I am on the Eastern Shore and while I usually vote for candidates who have roots on the shore I don't think a small bakery on Smith Island qualifies anyone to be governor of the state - thanks Sarah - NOT!

I don't like Ehrlich but I don't think he was a bad governor, I don't think O'Malley is doing such a bad job in this tough economic climate either. I am pretty much OK with either although I would prefer O'Malley. Why would I want a 'small bakery' owner from the Easter Shore to tackle job when we have such a diverse state?

Seriously, there is quite a long list of gubernatorial candidates she has endorsed - one has to wonder why the endorsement of a gubernatorial quitter would be considered valuable? When does quitting qualify you to endorse someone else?

I dunno...I think she's endorsing as a person who was on the Republican ticket for president. As the VP part of the ticket, she didn't have to go through the primaries, but she has almost as much cachet as if she had.

I think that if she does run for president and there's at least one other candidate with the same apparent ideology, that she could lose the part of the base with similar religious/political leanings that requires a "male headship"...primary season with her as a candidate could be interesting.
