This is the 9th of my series of Sarah Palin clips from CPAC 2014 & commentary upon them:
Nothing is more certain that the Democrats are in trouble as illustrated by the results of election in Florida 13.
Wherever you turn you hear about how that vote is a harbinger of doom for the left both because that was a district that Alex Sink won when running for Governor and because she, unlike incumbents in congress never cast a vote for Obamacare.
But while this conventional wisdom has become a lock in the last seven days 10 days ago this wasn’t the case.
A lot of people are forgetting that the GOP candidate was written off by the establishment and all the buzz a few days before the election was about the GOP establishment laying the groundwork of blame for the defeat they were anticipating. It was going to be due to a bad team, a bad message, his unambiguous opposition to illegal immigration all contrary to the GOP mantra, look at this segment from MSNBC the day before:
He won anyway.
That willingness of the establishment to play the Democrats game is exactly what Sarah Palin addressed here.
To be sure there were last minute issues & factors that helped in FL-13 but If Jolly had followed the establishment advice and ran farther away from his base, would the conventional wisdom be different today?
Sarah Palin knows that answer.
