No, I couldn't possibly agree with Shannyn Moore on something, could I? Well, maybe just this once I could. Just this once. Moore has a article up at the Huffington Compost warning that the GOP to watch out for Palin. Some excerpts:

When Palin filed to run for governor against first term incumbent Frank Murkowski, people took notice. Frank wasn't loved. His first act as governor was to nepotistically appoint his daughter to fill his vacated US Senate seat. Within the Alaska GOP, a war ensued, including fisticuffs at the Republican Party picnic between rabid Palin supporters and the GOP faithful. Oh, lookie, there went the state...

Many people regard Sarah Palin as a punch line. That's too easy. In fact, she's more of a threat. If the Republican Party had half a mind, they would look at Palin's history of party divisiveness, polarization and destruction and take heed. In fact, they'd be smart to take her at her word. She's a self-proclaimed rogue.
Okay, stop right there. She is not a "self-proclaimed" Rogue. That is a title she was stamped with by McCain's people that she has since embraced. But, whatever. Context means little to Shannyn. Moving on....

Case in point: New York's congressional race in House District 23. Sarah Palin's meddling has a Republican, Dede Scozzafava, dropping out and throwing their support for Democrat Bill Owens! Palin's support went to a candidate from the party of Glenn Beck.
Hm. I didn't know Glenn Beck had a party. Where do I go to register? Kidding. Shannyn also throws around some garbage about the Virginia and NJ races. We'll skip it and go on to...

So, Palin is doing exactly what she threatened to do when she quit: "I WILL support others who seek to serve, in or out of office, for the RIGHT reasons, and I don't care what party they're in or no party at all. Inside Alaska - or Outside Alaska." -Sarah Palin, July 3.
Yes, exactly what she threatened to do. Oh, Shannyn, you crack me up. But wait, there's more:

Apparently, Palin will endorse and campaign for various candidates against their wishes; talk about going rogue. Perhaps Palin should have included in her "I'm Quitting" speech she would work for teabaggers who also happen to be carpetbaggers like Doulglas L. Hoffman who purportedly doesn't even live in New York District 23.

The ripping and tearing of Republican political flesh doesn't keep me up at night. Sarah Palin is either a treasonous Republican...or a brilliant Democratic operative.

Ah, yes, being called a "teabagger" by a peace-loving, tolerant liberal. It's what I live for. Shannyn couldn't resist throwing Bob and Mark into the fray with this stab:

Palin and Wasilla Republican and Alaska Senate President, Lyda Green, often clashed over politics in Green's district. On a local shock jock talk show, Palin giggled after the host called Lyda Green "a cancer". Green had just recovered from cancer. Plunk, there went the district.
For actual context and not the twenty second snippet that the libs have circulated online, listen to the whole exchange:

I think "cancer on the progress of the state of Alaska" pretty much covers it. Basically Lyda threw a temper tantrum over a one hour time difference in the state of the state address, claimed it was too early, then finally ended up setting the time at two hours earlier than Palin had requested. Just an example of how the libs will spin things.

But, I agree with Shannyn (as much as it pains me to say it) on one thing - Palin is a threat to the GOP. Can I get an Amen?
