Cult Palin Leading GOP Over Cliff. How Cool Is That?
Palin's endorsement proves to be poison again, this time for New Hampshire's GOP Senate candidate Kelly Ayotte
. I wonder why the GOP have so bought into Cult Sarah. I believe it's a strong and glaring sign of their complete entropy and desperation and it's heartening.
The one time Sarah Palin was tested as a national candidate, you see, she lost. She turned what might have been a close race for McCain into a shutout.
She's not a growth candidate. She's a hardest-of-the-hardcore base candidate, if any kind of candidate--apart from a parody of one. The numbers do not increase, however steady they might at best be, and they are not enough to help her any more than they were before, and the few independents that voted for McCain despite her will now have no reason at all. And time and time again, when she steps into a race the GOP candidate stands a chance of losing(Brown pretty much would have won with or without her), they lose.
There's a story from ancient China, of a hungry man in a field. A rabbit comes jumping across the field, but fails to see a stump and so hits it headfirst and dies. The man can't believe his luck. He has dinner. And then waits at that stump till he starves, for another rabbit.
Except the GOP didn't even get the first
rabbit, but still they wait excitedly at the stump.
The truth is, as I've said, that she's just fleecing them. She's a good old-fashioned confidence trickster(think THE MUSIC MAN), who tells the marks what they want to hear and robs them blind. She's a polibrity*, not a politician. And when tested, she loses. But does she want to win? Do you really
think she'd take the pay cut public office entails now?
*If she can make up words, so can I.
