Sarah Palin Finally Sort of Endorses Gingrich

Sarah Palin Finally Sort of Endorses Gingrich

Was the former First Dude of Alaska just testing out the waters for his wife?  Whatever was happening with the recent Todd Palin endorsement of former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich, Tea Party icon Sarah is now on board as well, mostly.

Doing an interview on Fox News, Palin stated that she was convinced Gingrich won the recent South Carolina GOP debate. “I do think that Newt is the one that won the debate if you will, because Newt came out like South Carolina’s own Smokin’ Joe Frazier. He came out there swinging, talking about work, talking about jobs and work ethic and how government needs to get out of the way in order for all Americans to have a sense of opportunity to work, and I think that’s what a lot of voters have been craving to hear.”

Furthermore, if she was a state resident, he’d be her pick…at least, in order to keep the competition going on.  “I want to see this thing continue because iron sharpens iron. Steel sharpens steel.  These guys are getting better in their debates.  They are getting more concise.  They are getting more grounded in what their beliefs are and articulating what their ideas are for getting America back on the right track and getting Americans working again.  If I had to vote in South Carolina order to keep this thing going, I would vote for Newt and I would want it to continue. More debates, more vetting of candidates.”

Ok, so maybe it wasn’t “Newt should be president.”  But that’s not stopping the Gingrich campaign from treating it as if it were.  “We’re thrilled — I just talked to Todd and we’re just thrilled,” he told POLITICO as he headed into his hotel here for the night. “It’s a signal to every conservative that the one conservative vote that’s effective is to Newt Gingrich and that’s very helpful.”

More helpful to Gingrich would be if Palin would campaign on the trail for him, but that’s just not happening yet.

Watch Palin’s clip below. Best part? When she says that the process should continue because candidates need more vetting before they are selected. I’m sure John McCain agrees.

The main effect I care about here is that the major Republicans are giving themselves a better opportunity to shoot themselves in the foot while providing more opportuinites for new developments in the party, like the lunchbox Republicans, Buddy Roemer's anti corporate cash campaign, and even some of the salutory aspects of Ron Paul, to take hold. The more voters see the stark contrast to Gingrich praising more money in politics versus Roemer's small donors and public financing, between across-the-board union-bashing and lunchbox defense of unions as the basis of the middle class, and constant warmongering and Paul's calls for non-intevention, the better.

Wasn't it Sarah Palin herself who was not 'vetted' for the important VP nomination? Plucked out of obscurity and given a 20 minute phone interview?

Silly Sarah supporting Newt the lizard, now that's a combo!

Who cares what this ignorant nobody says or who she endorses?? She's like a Paris Hilton or a Kardashian wrapped in an American flag spouting nonsense. To hell with her! The main reason Palin is still haunting the airwaves is because of her MILF appeal to pot-gutted, pasty white Republican red-necks who fantasize about a roll in the haystack with her.

She's baaack! I thought she had faded back into Alaska, shooting wolves from a heliocopter.

... Hmmm .... I watched this video twice. Once with the volume on and once with the volume off. After this I decided deleting it was the only thing that really made sense.

We all know that Gingrich has a severe case of imbecility and with friends like her who needs enemies, all birds of a feather it seems to us here!.

Who cares who that hillbilly endorses. Does Gingrich like to kill wolves too?
