Erick Erickson is the latest entry in the Sarah Palin angst among some on the right:
To paraphrase Ann, a lot of us fell in love with Sarah Palin because of her enemies and a lot of us have fallen out of love with Sarah Palin because of her fans.
He means Ann Coulter who had similar words.
The Hill found a tea party group unhappy with Palin and ran with it
Wary that some are joining the grassroots conservative movement merely to sell books and enhance their celebrity status, a Tea Party group is putting the heat on former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin to make her presidential plans clear.
In a Tuesday statement, Armed Forces Tea Party Patriots paints former GOP vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin as the prime example of that kind of behavior.
I’ve never heard of the “armed forces tea party patriots” and I’ll wager you haven’t either, the Hill quoted a press statement because as we know the best way for a republican or a tea party group to get favorable press coverage is to hit a conservative or Sarah Palin. In my experience it’s rather odd for a military group to attack mothers of serving servicemen but lets give that a pass for the moment.
This is where I play the “I’ve got ties older than you, kid”
Well, I guess the collective wisdom of this sub-set of our illustrious talking heads who so often talk to hear themselves talk thinks we should just go on and nominate Romney, or we don’t stand a chance, right? Funny who some folks choose to call out and who they don’t, don’t ya think? heh!
And at the right scoop this tidbit came out:
Bill Clinton didn’t announce his candidacy until October 3, 1991. Reagan waited until November 11, 1979. We know how those two campaigns worked out. Just a little historical perspective to keep in mind.
Meanwhile while people on the right were busy getting their knickers in a twist Sarah Palin was doing what she does, hitting back against Hoffa for his nonsense:
So, now these union bosses are desperately trying to cast the grassroots Tea Party Movement as being “against the workingman.” How outrageously wrong this unapologetic Jim Hoffa is, for the people’s movement is the real movement for working class men and women. It’s rooted in real solidarity, and not special interests and corporate kickbacks. It represents the needed reform that will empower workers and job creators. We stand with the little guy against the corruption and influence peddling of those who collude to grease the wheels of government power.
I guess Palin knows Ronald Reagan’s 11th commandment better than those on the right. As they complain about her and her supporters, she keeps her cool (as usual) and keeps fighting the left as she did when nobody else was willing.
She is plaything the Mohicans to her critics and rivals Major Heyward:
I’ve known Chingachgook since we both were young. I knew Uncas’ mother. I’ve known Uncas since he was born. Major Heyward. I don’t know you. If we have to fight back to back, it’s possible that you might run. I don’t think you will, but you might. I’ve fought back to back with these Mohicans father and son, and they didn’t run.
Be honest, in a fight who would you like to have your back more than Palin? Who has been more vetted? Who else do you know will not run when confronted by the left’s smear machine?
Ya wanna know what the real problem is: now that we are in a 24/7 Cable News Cycle the demand for everything NOW has infected many on the right and six months has become a cultural eternity for people. Add to that a collection of GOP political campaigns that all want a piece of Palin’s supporters and their campaign money, and presto you have angst from the right that the MSM can gleefully tout.
Let’s face it, all the hand wringing everyone doing is going to mean absolutely nothing in six months.
Until Sarah Palin announces, she’s not running, and if and when she does she is. Till then stop worrying about it.
