From the ever-reliable The Right Scoop, video of Sarah Palin’s knockout speech today at a Tea Party in Madision, Wisconsin. True-to-form and on-point as always, Palin took it to both Obama and the feckless. gutless GOP Establishment. This woman is the embodiment of courage, conviction, principle and integrity — qualities sorely lacking in most of the rest of the so-called Republican presidential contenders.
Can anyone imagine a pro-life statist like Huckabee delivering a speech like this? Or Mr. “I stand by my failed statewide experiment in socialized medicine” Romney? How about the “let’s call a truce on social issues” Mitch Daniels, who couldn’t even hold firm on fiscal conservatism? And for reasons already noted, I am having trouble visualizing celebrity blowhard Donald Trump, equal opportunity donor to RINOs like Charlie Crist and progressive Democrats like Harry Reid.
As Palin notes, they all need to “fight like a girl” — just as she and many others have, including Nikki Haley, Mary Fallin, Susana Martinez, Marcia Blackburn and Michele Bachmann.
If given a choice in 2012 between a “Mama Grizzly” and a GOP Capitulator who wants to “reach across the aisle” (e.g. cave in on principles), give me the Mama Grizzly. I can’t wait to watch her eviscerate her opponents in the debates, starting with the weak-willed GOP retreads and ending with the Socialist-in-Chief.
