Palin Bashing

For some reason, I don’t think Palin is going to run for POTUS in 2012 or anytime in the next 12 years. I’m starting to think her strategy is to act as decoy and let the Liberal spend all their time and energy bashing her, so a new challenger will come up.

I’m probably wrong but I think the decoy strategy would seriously screw up the Liberal battle plan going into 2012. Like AGW, there are too many Liberals with too much energy invested in bashing Palin. You take Palin out of the equation by no running for anything, and those Liberals would be shell shocked and wouldn’t be able to mount any sort of attack on any potential candidate.

Just a thought.

I should mention that Liberal and Conservative are inter changeable. There are tons of Conservatives whose only plan is to attack Palin (Andrew Sullivan). Take away Palin and they wouldn’t know what to do either.

      I think it would be a great strategy. But you never know, whether you like her or hate her, Palin does things her own way.

    I like Palin. I admired her long before McCain chose her. Palin is an interesting person, she meets my criteria for character and integrity. Those too qualities have become more important to me then politics or what side of the aisle you claim to be from. I think President Obama gives a good example of why this is true. He campaigned as if he was a progressive liberal,but he’s got the Left screaming he’s Bush the third, and he’s got the Right screaming he’s a socialist. What he is and what he always has been, is a man with no integrity and no character. For a so called liberal advocate, he’s done more harm to liberal causes then electing somebody like Pat Robertson would have done. And he’s just barely been at it a year. Wow!

    I think there’s a good chance Palin is going to run. Not only that, I suspect she’s going to win. And unlike Hillary, the Republican party will back her, rally around her simply because they want to be back in power.

    Massa got it right when he let it all hang out on his way out. We’re into about 12 years of a downhill slide (when you take into account Star’s prosecution of Clinton for the last 2 years, at least, of his term). And they feel like dog years, which means we’ve been in a tumble for 84 years. Don’t you think it’s about time for a real turnaround? What’s it gonna take? I’d vote for the dog catcher at this point! How much worse could that be? I don’t think Palin could be worse than the dog catcher. But I agree. I think she is the sacrificial goat for Romney. I sure hope the tea party can come up with something better than him. Good grief! Can’t we have a fresh face (along with a real brain and a true character) and a true leader instead of yesterday’s news?

    Oy vay.

      “I think she is the sacrificial goat for Romney.” I agree and I still think that Romney is going to get the nomination. Republicans are predictable and they almost always go with the guy who came in second from the race before. I also think Republicans would have just as hard a time having a woman on the top of the ticket as the Democrats, but I hope yttik is right and I’m wrong. But Republicans do want to win and Romney is going to have trouble with the religious right. Palin could be a BIG help with that group. And as long as she is the focal point for the hate from the left, Romney doesn’t look so bad by comparison. It certainly seems to be working so far.

      I’m getting more and more of the mindset that we don’t need a leader in Washington, we need someone who will do what the people tell them to do.

    Totally OT (but I don’t have a blog): ZH: Here’s the title if you want to run with it: “Candy coated popcorn, peanuts and a Prize! That’s what you get with HCR!”

    Pelos quote of the day: “..but we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it…”

    Before that she said that this is not simply a bill about health care but a bill about the future, going on to say that it’s not about diabetes but about diet (quick, get me to a pound cake before those are outlawed, too!) and she punctuated her words with that excited, quivering hush, “It is all very, very exciting.” ooooooew, I just can’t wait!

      I saw that too Woodhull! Pelosi saying that. Has she lost her mind? She did appear “giddy” like she’d just pulled off something really underhanded and knew she was going to get away with it.

    The problem with Palin being used as a smokescreen to provide cover for the real Republican candidate is that I don’t think Republicans are that clever and it’s debatable whether or not Democrats are that stupid.

    People are going to continue to bash Palin no matter who runs. The thing with Democrats is that they don’t really need a decoy to prevent them from getting the goods on the real candidate. They don’t even need personal info, they’ll just try to slam him by claiming he’s a neocon, member of the Bush party, racist, etc.
