How can Sarah Palin come out and endorse someone who can't answer some basic questions," Scozzafava tells the Post. "Do these people even know who they are endorsing?"
And Scozzafava has this message for the Club for Growth and other Republicans who are vowing to bring down moderates."There is a lot of us who consider ourselves Republicans, of the Party of Lincoln," she said. "If they don't want us with them, we're going to work against them."
Okay, now on to the vomit-inducing stuff. "He's baaaaack." Actually, he never left. But, whatever. He was flapping his chops on Entertainment Tonight again complaining about not being able to see Tripp. This is why I doubt he will actually file for custody. What will he whine about if he gets it? He might have to go away. No more spotlight for Levi. :(
This line's my favorite: "I wouldn't want her running my country." - Levi.
The Douchebag General doesn't like her. Could she get a better endorsement?
Next up, Frank Bailey:
I hope the book still gets written. I was looking forward to it.
A California publicist and two co-authors have terminated a book deal with a former aide of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.
San Diego-based Releve Marketing and PR announced Tuesday it will no longer represent or co-author Frank Bailey's upcoming book "Renegade: Sarah Palin's Hatchet Man."
Christiana Grace, company co-owner and one of the co-authors, says she can't elaborate on the reasons for the termination. But she adds it was not a falling out with Bailey, her close friend since college. Bailey could not be reached for comment.
And lastly, it looks like Rubio is angling for an endorsement. Possibly:
The clean-cut and charismatic Rubio, the son of Cuban immigrants, is in many ways the perfect candidate for the fiscal conservatives who have taken over the Republican spotlight - and who seem intent on taking over the Republican Party. President Obama's spending policies, he argues, "will rob my children and their generation of their prosperity, and some of their freedoms."Rubio also made some excellent points about the NY-23 race:
...Asked if he would welcome the support of former GOP vice presidential candidate nd Alaska governor Sarah Palin, Rubio offers an unqualified yes, adding that "I can't think of anything her and I disagree with off the top of my head."
"For conservatives who still don’t believe we can be true to our principles and win elections, I hope NY-23 serves as a wake-up call." Wouldn't Hoffman's loss, then, be a wake-up call of a different kind - evidence of the potential fallout when conservative Republicans like Rubio take on moderates from their own party?What will happen in Florida? I don't know. All I know is that I laughed out loud the first time I saw Crist with that bleached-white hair.
Not at all, Rubio said. He pinned the loss on the local Republican Party, which he said shouldn't have selected moderate Republican Dede Scozzafava in the first place.
"The blame lays on those who decided to anoint someone who was so outside the mainstream of Republican thought," he argued.
....Rubio rejects the notion that there is a purge going on of moderate Republicans, arguing that Gingrich has it exactly backward, at least when it comes to his campaign.
"People always couch it as 'is there a purge of moderates,'" he said. "I think the real question is, 'is there room for the conservatives in the party?' Let's not forget that the establishment has endorsed the moderate in this race, Charlie Crist. So if anything, the people fighting to be a part of the Republican Party are the conservatives in this race, not the moderates."
Oh, and USA Today notes that Palin's book tour will run through battleground states.
I leave you with this simple video that seems to be based on Bastiat. The best things in life are often simple:
