Palin Weighs In On Nebraska Senate Race

Palin Weighs In On Nebraska Senate Race

Although Nebraska Attorney General Jon Bruning looks like lock for the GOP nomination to run for retiring Sen. Ben Nelson’s seat.  But lock or not, he’s not getting it without a fight.  And now, former Vice Presidential pick Sarah Palin is weighing in and endorsing his opponent.

According to Roll Call, Palin is backing state legislator Deb Fischer, with a little last minute money and a bit of lip service. “We are happy to support you and have asked SarahPAC to send a financial contribution to your campaign. Good luck next Tuesday — the Palins are in your corner.”

Fischer had requested help long ago, and it’s not clear exactly how much effect a Sarah Palin email will have with less than a week before the primary.  Bruning has already been declared the early favorite, and with state Treasurer Don Stenberg being backed by both Sen. Jim DeMint and Club for growth, it seems like Fischer’s new endorsement is less likely to help her than to continue dividing the Tea Party vote and ensure Bruning’s nomination.

Republicans will vote for their favorite candidate next Tuesday.  Meanwhile, former Nebraska Senator John Kerrey will be running as the Democratic nominee.

Frankly speaking why do we even talk about this pathetic heartless ruthless Animal Killer. She is a WITCH. I hope some horror befall over her one day as the same way she took the lives of innocent animals.

Palin just can't stand being out of the limelight for long. She doesn't know she is the laughingstock of her V.P. role.

When will people stop interviewing her? She never has anything positive to contribute.

WHY doesn't she just go back to her home state and crawl back under the slime rock she came out from? Like a mosquito, she just won't goo away! Stupid hillbilly wolf killer!!!!

There are so many more issues to share and consider. Let's save our space for actually interesting and important discussions.

Caribou Barbie's endorsement will have little if any effect. Her time of influence and power is long past.

Sarah palin is just like a house full of bedbugs, no matter what you do, you cannot get RID OF THEM OR HER!
