Palin is Not the Future of the Republican Party

We'll not make any friends today among conservative populists, but we agree with George Will's column today, 'Sarah Palin and the Mutual Loathing Society,' which you can read at: http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/02/17/AR2010021703507_pf.html
Will opines that, "Yet Sarah Palin, who with 17 months remaining in her single term as Alaska's governor quit the only serious office she has ever held, is obsessively discussed as a possible candidate in 2012. Why? She is not going to be president and will not be the Republican nominee unless the party wants to lose at least 44 states."

We like Sarah Palin. She will help a lot of conservatives raise money as well as their ire. She deserves to earn big bucks giving speeches. But as we've said in the past, she has been 'Quayled' by the media and her own performance. She is not the presidential hope of the Republican Party or of conservatives serious about electing the next president.

Another area of concern regarding Ms. Palin is her outspoken support of Rand Paul in Kentucky. Mr. Paul appears to be an ultra libertarian whose views are well outside the Republican mainstream. Ms. Palin will hopefully be asked by one of the Fox interviewers how she can rationalize support for both Mr. Paul and for John McCain in Arizona!
