Palin to campaign for McCain in Arizona

WASHINGTON – Sarah Palin and Sen. John McCain plan to campaign together again.

The Arizona Republican announced Wednesday that the former Alaska governor and 2008 vice presidential candidate will join him in Phoenix on March 26 to help campaign for his re-election to the U.S. Senate.

Palin is scheduled to attend a private fundraising event that evening. The next day, she and McCain will appear together at a public event, likely a rally, according to McCain spokeswoman Brooke Buchanan.

“I’m looking forward to getting back on the campaign trail with my former running mate, and I know my fellow Arizonans will welcome her, as well,” McCain said in a statement. “Sarah energized our nation and remains a leading voice in the Republican Party.”

Palin to campaign for McCain in Arizona

I don’t claim to be an expert in the field of political science. My expertise tends to lean a bit more towards military and law enforcement matters, but I have got to tell you, expert or not, I am still highly opinionated where politics is concerned and I am about to go OFF on this one.

I may lose a few readers and fans over what I am about to say, but that’s the breaks when you tell it like it really is.

I didn’t buy her book, I’m not going to waste my hard earned money, I wouldn’t pay to watch her speak if she she was BUCK NEKKID and I don’t watch her on FOX, or any other network if I can get the channel changed fast enough. I try to tune that annoying voice OUT!

I am NOT a Palin fan. I have long said, and pissed off many people by doing so, but I firmly believe that if Palin is the BEST the RNC can offer up, we are is some seriously deep poop. I said it when she was running with McCain on the GOP ticket, I have made it a topic in more than a few posts on this blog and I have yet to see anything to convince me otherwise.

Supporting McCain now is just further proof to me that Palin is about 3 sandwiches short of a picnic, and one of these days folks are going to receive the shock of a lifetime when that woman shows the REAL Sarah Palin, and I think she’s getting closer to it every day!

John McCain is nothing more than an OLD, used up RINO. He is a wild card at best. You never know what McCain is going to do or who he’s going to side with.. If Palin supporting him doesn’t open your eyes up the the lack of Conservatism that Sarah Palin possesses, I don’t guess anything will.

Palin has criticized McCain’s campaign since their loss, saying in her book “Going Rogue” that there was substantial tension between her advisers and McCain’s. She also details how she was prevented from delivering a concession speech in Phoenix on Election Night, and how she’d been kept “bottled up” from reporters during the campaign.

Yet she trots out to support the old reprobate. Folks, I am NOT about to speak well of anyone that supports John McCain. I can’t support ANYONE that is a RINO or anyone that would support a RINO, for ANY office.

I have heard many excuses made about Palin. Most say that McCain, and/or his campaign, had her so tightly controlled that she was not allowed to show the REAL Sarah. Some say that the goofy speech patterns she used were a direct result of McCain campaign control, you betcha!

Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned? So WHY is she running back to the McCain camp to offer her support by campaigning for him in his bid to continue a career that should have ended a long time ago?

I know we’ll never have political perfection in America, it’s an impossibility, but some common sense would be nice. Having folks that actually learned from their mistakes would be good too. All I am seeing from Palin is a new Susie Cheerleader routine. That’s not the kind of leadership this nation needs.

And one other thing, I believe it may be related. Scott Brown and his apparent closeness with John McCain.

He immediately went to visit Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., a staunch campaign supporter, and also had visits scheduled with Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., and Massachusetts Democratic Sens. John Kerry and Paul Kirk. SOURCE

Maybe it’s just political courtesy, maybe it’s just politics as usual, but Brown having a close connection to John McCain does NOT bode well for him if he wants to establish his Conservative bonafides.

Scott Brown may be a Conservative by Massachusetts standards, look at what they have given America since the late 1940’s, Kennedy after Kennedy after MORE damned Kennedy’s followed by John F’n Kerry.

Of course Brown is thought of as a conservative in Massachusetts. In Texas we’d brand him as a left leaning moderate at best, but, that’s Texas for you.

Scott Brown bears watching just as much as Sarah Palin does. NO MORE RINOs! And those that support RINOs are nothing more than RINOs themselves!

    When I saw the announcement yesterday… the red flags went up!!! Now I’m for the black flag / no quarter when it comes to eliminating the RINOs from the party! As far as Palin planning to campaign for Rick Perry and Michelle Bachmann, I think both camps, if they have a lick of common sense, should distance themselves as far as possible from Palin.

    First she whined about how she was treated by the McPain Camp, and now she plans on campaigning for the old buzzard!!!! The “political pole dancer” needs to go back to Alaska and see a good shrink!!! JMHO.

    I certainly agree with you about Scott Brown. Everything he does should be scrutinized and reported. My daughter was concerned that he isn’t conservative enough. I reminded her that elected officials are supposed to work for the people who put them in office and Massachusetts is a very liberal state and to those people Brown is conservative. If he was a true conservative he probably wouldn’t have won. I hope he’s “moderate” enough that he won’t be in lock-step with the liberal Democrats.

    Political Pole Dancer??

  4. comment number 4 by: HoosierArmyMom

    Glad you enjoyed my sarcasm… LOL!!! That’s exactly what she is doing to people who don’t know what a true conservative is supposed to be you know!!! ;-)

  5. comment number 5 by: minuteman26

    Off the subject a bit, but one thing that bugs me about Scott Brown besides being a JAG officer is that he made no mention about upholding or defending the Constitution of this great country.

  6. comment number 6 by: TexasFred

    He may not have made it a campaign issue, but he’s gotta at least say it when he’s sworn in… Just sayin’…

    May not mean anything to him, I honestly don’t know, but I can’t recall ANY candidate making an issue of that particular point…

  7. comment number 7 by: The BoBo

    I WAS a big fan of Palin until she announced this. I would never have voted her as President – but – as a conservative voice of reality – I was backing her. Now that she is backing a RINO – I have to wonder what her real convictions are now.

  8. comment number 8 by: TexasFred

    Bobo, I never supported her OR McCain, and this has put the nail in the coffin… The TEA Party people will turn on her because of this, some already have… One of the local TEA Party leaders in Dallas is a friend of mine, he says it’s already begun and the worm IS turning…

    Palin just pissed in a lot of Cheerios…

  9. comment number 9 by: Patrick Sperry

    Palin quit in the middle of a firefight, and that was enough for me to decide that she isn’t worth a “pole dance” viewing. (HAM, you owe me a keyboard! Coffee is all over the place! LMAO)

    I myself said years ago, no more lessors of evils, and Fred did as well. If we lose readers, or blog hits then so be it.

    Bluto for President! As he once said, nothing would get done if he were. Well? Nothing would be better than another damned RINO faux conservative or commie in the Presidents seat, or any other as well!

    Three sandwich’s short?

  10. comment number 10 by: BobF

    As a military officer, Brown swore an oath to protect and defend the Constitution…requirement of all military personnel.

    One of Brown’s first stop in Washington was to see McCain. I’m glad to see Brown win but I think too many Republicans may be reading too much into it. People aren’t going to vote for them because they have a “R after their name. To Massachusetts Brown may be a Conservative but to Texas he may be a RINO. Time will tell.

    I’m disappointed in Palin campaigning for McCain. I wonder how’s she’s going to react when McCain touts the Hispanic vote by kowtowing to illegals?

  11. comment number 11 by: Longstreet

    Campaigning for McCain is a BIG mistake for Palin. It would certainly, I’d think, cause conservatives to question her “conservative credentials” AND her decision making processes.

    Stick a fork in her… she’s done!


  12. comment number 12 by: HoosierArmyMom

    Patrick, put one keyboard on my tab!!!! TF may owe me a monitor as I power washed mine on the “3 sandwiches short” comment!!! Geeez, this thread is getting messier by the minute!!!

  13. comment number 13 by: minuteman26

    Bob F – As a military officer, I also swore that oath; so did John Kerry and John Murtha if you know what I’m getting at. Allegiance to the Constitution needs to be reaffirmed now more that ever by those holding national public office. I trust very few lawyers and no politicians at this point in time.

    Folks, I am NOT about to speak well of anyone that supports John McCain. I can’t support ANYONE that is a RINO or anyone that would support a RINO, for ANY office.

    Then I’ve got some bad news for ya, Fred.

    Two days after Brown won, I got a robo-call from him praising McCain’s support of his campaign, and hoping that “all the citizens of Arizona will get behind John McCain in his bid for re-election.”

    I knew that there was something fishy about Brown, but I didn’t say anything. Not that I have a lot of weight in this arena, but at least I would have been on the record.

    BobF has it right – in Mass, Brown is very conservative. To the rest of the conservatives, he is starting to look very RINO-ish. Time will, indeed, tell; the robo-call has already sealed the deal for me.

  15. comment number 15 by: TexasFred

    Cary? Did you not see the *back page*?? I blasted off on Brown too…

    RINOish indeed!

  16. comment number 16 by: HoosierArmyMom

    It seems the robo-calls like Cary received have been received elsewhere. From Malkin’s article about “McCain Regression Syndrome”. Chalk up another RINO in the works!!!!

    Red Flag No. One: A reader from Arizona informed me the day after the Bay State Bombshell that he had received a robo-call from Massachusetts GOP Sen.-elect Scott Brown. “He basically wanted me to vote for John McCain in November,â€? the reader said in his description of the automated campaign call supporting the four-term Sen. McCain’s re-election bid. “No wonder [Brown] said he hadn’t had any sleep. … He was busy recording phone messages!â€?

    Sorry – fast scan and response – I promise to read more fully before commenting in the future.

    Yep. I’m chapped. REAL dumb move on her part.

  20. comment number 20 by: Vincent

    I liked Palin at first, I liked what she had to say and what she claimed to represent. Then I got to know her true colors a bit and no longer have much respect for her. She has turned out to be just another politician. Nothing fresh there.

    That said, I’d still pay to see her buck nekkid. I’m sure she’d look better scantily clad, given her age and reproductive experience, but I’d still like to make that call personally.

    Political pole dancer,eh? Good one.

    Great Question. I think the answer is one Mr. Obvious could point out to some and they still wouldn’t get it.

  23. comment number 23 by: Silver Fox

    I’ll have to keep my powder dry on this one. We will see who runs in the primaries in 2012 a lot of water will go under that bridge before them. The perfect candidate on that white horse will never arrive and we may be left with someone we don’t like vs Obama who we detest. Then of course there will always be that fringe candidate who will pop up on the ballot in some states. I am a hard core conservative, but if the conditions warrent I will be practical.

    As for RINO’s, the only way one will get my vote is in a head to head with Obama. Another thing, the RINO is in the eye of the beholder. One man’s RINO may very will be anothers conservative. Personally I could care less about party affilation. I do think Palin should stay out of the Arizona republican primaries and if she chooses to support the winner in the general thats great.

    Sorry, so late on comments today–I’m sick and just now starting my rounds, doubt I will make it.

  24. comment number 24 by: txhillcountry

    ” Personally I could care less about party affiliation.” Good Comment SF, I agree and would go further in my observations. Over the last decade or so it is the RINO’s that left us, our (conservative) values have changed very little, and the birth of the TeaParty may become just that-the birth of a new party replacing an old, worn-out established, party of Republicans & Dummocrats who exist only to enrich themselves and stay in power. So it will remain to be seen if Palin is the real-McCoy, but it’s not looking good and my opinion-meter of her dropped about 50%.

  25. comment number 25 by: minuteman26

    If Palin runs in 2012 she may have some stiff competition from Rick Perry. Good article in current issue of Texas Monthly. Perry is the most conservative of anyone mentioned so far. Would send all the libbers running.
