Christine O’Donnell is no Sarah Palin. Being like Sarah Palin somehow or another became a good thing, by the way.
Fred Barnes and Bill Kristol, both editors of The Weekly Standard and the men arguably most responsible for releasing the curse that is Sarah Palin upon our nation, are openly defying the the Rogue.
“The Weekly Standard” outed Palin-backed Delaware candidate Christine O’Donnell for not having attended Princeton, a claim she made in a gender-discrimination lawsuit but later withdrew during a CNN interview.
Politicians lying about their credentials isn’t news, but this is. One, it’s public trouble for Sarah Palin from the conservative base. This is odd because Palin and Glenn Beck are largely responsible for creating the “enthusiasm gap” that favors Republicans in the midterm elections.
Two, it’s an open appraisal of the conservative position from respected conservative voices. Moderate Republicans (that is, conservatives who live on the east coast, are well-educated, accept the welfare state, and separate God and country) are beginning to realize ceding ground to Western Republicans (conservatives who think the Constitution is a sacred document and that government should largely be done way with) might not be the best plan after all.
Are conservatives beginning to realize they shouldn’t be relying on candidates who rally voters by suggesting they “grab their muskets”? Because nobody in America owns a musket.
O’Donnell refers to her situation as “Republican Cannibalism.” Expect to see more of it. And be happy you are.
