POLITICO - Sarah Palin slammed Sen. Thad Cochran, who won his Mississippi primary last night, for possible “shenanigans” such as courting Democrat votes and his moderate policies.
“Well, you know, as for the primary, and perhaps if it’s true, some shenanigans going on there, nothing should surprise you, but that’s old-school politics where it’s a bit of the status quo and that’s got to go,” Palin said Tuesday of Cochran’s Democrat outreach on Fox News’ “Hannity,” ahead of the Republican senator being declared the primary winner over Chris McDaniel.
Well Sarah, looks like you're a bit miffed because you backed the candidate that didn't win the "R"primary. Really gal, what does it matter? McDaniel would have lost the general anyway. Who knows, just maybe Cochran can keep the seat in republican hands just a bit longer.
Palin, who had endorsed McDaniel, further ripped Cochran as someone “promising bigger government.”
“It’s very rare in a Republican primary that the candidate who promises to bring home the bacon, promising bigger government, which is requiring higher taxes and more burdensome government actually pulls it off in the primary? That’s a rare thing,” Palin said. “So it’s — it will be surprising, and yet perhaps not, to find out what that cross-over of Democrat voters, how that does impact the general.”
Whoa there gal. When was the last time a republican reduced the size of government, balanced the budget, reduced the national debt, and actually acted like a conservative party of restraint in anything?
I'll acknowledge they have been good at keeping marginal tax rates low as deficits increase and the debt grows. So, what really sets republicans apparent from democrats with respect to fiscal sanity and or responsibility I ask you?
Palin said the GOP needs candidates “who are courageous enough to buck the status quo” and was asked about her comments that she might consider going third party.
“Well, if Republicans are going to act like Democrats, then what’s the use in getting all gung ho about getting Republicans in there?” Palin said. “So yeah, if Republicans aren’t going to stand strong on the planks in our platform, then it does no good to get all enthused about them anymore.”
Stand strong on the planks in the platform? Perhaps you might enlighten us on exactly when it was the last time that happened. I'm sure most of us following republican politics the past 40 years will need a bit of a reminder.
All I can say is when Dumb and Dumber get together on Dumb's program it is sure to be entertaining if nothing else.
