Sarah Palin In 2012? – Republican Party R.I.P.

The reports of tensions between the ‘Rogue Diva’ and John McCain come a little early, usually that doesn’t become public until after the defeat is finalized.  It’s an indication that everybody wants to position themselves as soon as possible to point fingers and blame others.  McCain, I’m sure, wants to salvage whatever is left of his reputation after his hateful and negative campaign and in the end, his responsibility of having picked a totally unqualified person as his VP candidate.  Sarah Palin, However, the $150,000 hockey mom, might have other ambitions.  There are rumors of her going rogue and staging an insurgency within the McCain camp, disregarding her handlers and advisers.  That can only mean one thing, positioning herself for:

SARAH  PALIN  IN  2012 !!!

If that indeed should be the case, we can collectively pick out a headstone for the Republican party, reading ‘GOP – R.I.P.’ ….. For a decade, or even an entire generation.  I have a sense that we will be witnessing something close to a civil war within the Republican party, starting on November 5th, the day after the election.  And it’s going to be a fight for the soul of the Republican party.  If you look back in history when one or the other party found themselves in the wilderness, that’s what always happened and often it took quite some time before that particular party managed to come back.  The Republican party of today faces such a dilemma that definitely will require deep soul searching and an all out fight between the various factions, and maybe that’s a good thing.

The ever shrinking base consists almost exclusively of evangelical extremists and the racist and nutjob anti-intellectuals we have been witnessing at the McCain and Palin rallies lately.  Sarah Palin is their ‘star’ because she is one of them.  However, other Republicans and everybody else are completely turned off by these radicals and their ‘hero’ Sarah Palin.  So, with this base alone and Sarah Palin as their pick for 2012, the Republican party will remain in the wilderness for a long, long time.  If they want to avoid that prospect, it seems to me that the rest of the party will have to figure out over time how to become relevant again with the ‘normal’ Conservatives and Intellectuals being in charge without alienating the base because they still will need their votes.  The first step to that recovery from an almost certain rout on November 4th will be to

NOMINATE  SOMEBODY  ELSE  IN  2012 !!!

Just a thought.  Not that we particularly care.  

Message to Sarah:  Sorry, you only get one chance to make an initial impression and after flirting with you at first, we have discovered your real character and it’s not a pretty picture.  Sarah, we’re just not that much into you and decided we should start seeing other people.  You probably will be going back to your old boyfriend ‘Alaska,’ but after all that has happened over the past few weeks, the reunion may not be as sweet as you like.  

SARAH  PALIN  HAS  BECOME  SUCH  A  DRAG  ON  MCCAIN,  SHE’S  HIS  ‘DRAG  QUEEN.’   🙂
