And Why Not? If That’s Who You Want, Go For It!
By Dell Hill
Ace makes a valid point here....two or three of them, in fact.
From my observations, most conservatives are comparing every Republican candidate to Governor Palin and her dead-serious conservative ideals. So, if that’s you want to see, why not make your opinion known by writing in Sarah Palin?
Run, Sarah, Run! Please Write-In Palin In All Caucuses and Primaries!...if that's who you actually want. Don't look for surrogates; vote for the person you actually want.
C4P is running an ad in Iowa urging Palinites to draft Palin via the write-in, and for once -- finally -- I agree.
I have been of this mind for a while. Palin haunts this party. There are some that just cannot get over it.
This results in that part of the party seeking "Palin-esque" candidates and basing their vote, it seems, on who is going to say the nicest things about Palin, or name her as a VP candidate.
This is distortive and really has nothing to do with the legitimate reasons for selecting a candidate.
Well, in some people's minds it does. This election remains chiefly as a vehicle for the validation of Palin, and, indirectly, as a cultural validation of her supporters.
If that is what is truly wanted -- then Go For It!
Write her in. Stop selecting among the lesser of evils, and just go where the heart really wants to go.
Rather than look for a Palin-like candidate, doesn't it just make more sense to write in Palin?”
