Should She Stay or Should She Go? ……..GO Sarah GO!

On the same day Republicans surrendered a symbolically significant seat in the Senate, the Sarah Palin wars erupted again inside the party. Leaks followed by trash-talking followed by recriminations.

The latest Palin flare-up began in Vanity Fair with a lengthy article by Todd S. Purdum examining the Alaska governor's past and her potential future. The controversy migrated instantly to the Web and the blogs — it was, in fact, made for the viral communication that dominates today's politics — and became even more intense, nasty and personal.

The Palin controversy highlights personal enmities and strategic disagreements among Republicans. The victory by Democrat Al Franken over Republican  Norm Coleman for a U.S. Senate seat representing Minnesota, though long anticipated, drives home the degree to which Republicans are now a true minority party. Together, the controversies are another double blow to the weakened party.

Republicans grappling with how to respond to their latest setback in the Senate were appalled by the sniping over Palin. The criticism in Vanity Fair and the angry reaction by Palin defenders echoed the breakdown that occurred at the end of  Sen. John McCain's presidential campaign. For several days this fall, the two camps fired at each other at the expense of both Palin and McCain. The charges and countercharges aimed at Palin were, to many Republicans, shocking and inexcusable, a messy end to a dispiriting campaign. But that was not the end. Seven months later, it continues.

    "Sarah Palin is going to be a brand new and shinier Lindsey Graham; someone who has no direction and "explicate" with the likes of Hannities, Limbaughs, and Becks of the world, with baseless vitriol and playing the blame game continuously. But, on the plus side, she'll never win a debate, never bridge a gap, and never hold another elected office this side of Arkansas."

    ooooooh, Syrin. If Sarah "goes," you will be stuck with her 24/7 in Wasilla. Didya think of that? Be careful what you wish for. Personally, that would be enough for me to put my house on the market and pack my bags. = )

    Well, JB, I don't think I could sell my house to a paranoid nut like you (saw your blog). I'm a bit more discerning. I really couldn't do that to my neighbors, who by and large are good people. Happy house hunting.

    United we stand Alaskans. Isn't this just a mirrored reflection of her behavior as Governor In Name Only in the State of Alaska since the day she was elected? Yep, once she gets her foot in the door she starts creating chaos and divisiveness in order to cover up her inability to learn or speak about anything but herself. Yeah, her cult like minions support her robbing hard working American children in order to support her legal fund. Remember when GINO said her legal fees were in the millions? I have absolutely zero respect for GINO or her enabling Administration. Thanks Syrin!
