Jesus on a pogo stick, I drew Sarah Palin again. Seriously, this has got to stop. But her parallel bizarro world keeps having consequences on our own real world, like the recent push against a moderate Republican congressional candidate in New York State. I don’t know how they do things in big ol’ Alaska, but most of the Republicans I knew in New York were of the moderate kind. They don’t need no carpet-bagging movement conservatives coming from outside and interfering. Hence, Scozzafava’s endorsement of her former Democratic rival.
Anyhoo, Palin’s continued presence in political life – including her $1.25 million ghost-written memoir – goes against logic and decency. As does Maurice Greenberg’s resurgence on Wall Street, the Barney Frank “TARP on steroids” bill, and the carrion-devouring take-overs that make folks like Warren Buffett only more powerful.
UPDATE: Aww, even The Palin has limits. New York’s 23rd rejected her endorsed conservative candidate and elected the first Democrat to win that seat since, um, before the Civil War. Michael Steele may brush this off, but it should be apparent that the major Republican wins last night in Virginia and New Jersey were by moderates responding to local politics. However, so long as the movement conservatives have Maine to crow about, they won’t notice that voters are rejecting their bullshit.
