I took a stroll over to Conservatives4Palin just for kicks and giggles. And believe it or not, there are still quite a few loyal soldiers still dutifully manning the fort. They mostly reminisce over the good times and Sarah, of course.
(Quick humorous suggestion: Instead of challenging Nancy Pelosi to a debate, Rick Perry should go toe-to-toe with Mama Grizzly. Wouldn't that be an epic battle of wits?)
'What could they possibly talk about?' I hear you ask. I know, Sarah Palin's very long 15 minutes have finally run their course and she is nothing but a distant memory in our minds. But a Palin fan's mind works quite differently. Here is Steve Flesher, for example, castigating Ann Coulter for thinking.
So while it is true that many ideological and constitutional conservatives have come out of the woodwork adding to the movement, I contend it’s something to celebrate, not something to condemn. What is disheartening is when someone like Ann Coulter — who I’ve always admired — jumps around unpredictably and seems to come out swinging against candidates like Newt only when it appears that Mitt Romney is threatened.Flesher implies that Mitt Romney is not a constitutionally-principled conservative, whereas Newt, Palin, and the rest of the Not Romneys are. Hilarious. Of course, Flesher would not be able to cite a single example to back up his claim. But the Palin Follower's mind is not subject to the constraints of reason.
Coulter and other usual pundits cannot celebrate and promote constitutionally-principled conservatives when it’s time to win a mid-term election only to turn around and damn them when it’s time to hold the Republicans accountable, too.
Reality-based conservatives have got to be more blunt when describing the
Dear Mr. Flesher,
Sarah Palin took your money. She may have been, at one time, a decent governor of Alaska, but she decided to quit so she could cash in on her instant fame of being John McCain's running mate. And the only reason why McCain picked her was because she is a woman and much easier on the eyes than Kay Bailey Hutchison. But regardless, Palin has spent the last few years, not arguing passionately for conservative ideas, but rather trying to appeal to a very narrow demographic that is hooked on Fox News and Rush Limbaugh.
For Palin, conservatism was reduced to a populist cultural war. She never once promoted specific solutions to our nation's problems. What are the tenants of Sarah Palin's conservatism? Principally that the media is unfair to Sarah Palin. Secondly, that the establishment is unfair to Sarah Palin. And lastly, that the big city liberals are unfair to Sarah Palin. It worked like a charm. Palin strung you along for three years but never had any intention of running for President. She only wanted to rake in millions of dollars and set herself up for life. She is a businesswoman. She only cares about conservatism if you will buy her book and pay to listen to her stumble through another speech.
And yet, the one guy who you dismiss as a liberal is the one guy who didn't enrich himself in public service. There may be profound reasons to choose a different candidate than Romney. I do not agree with everything that Romney stands for. But can we please dispense with this nonsense that Palin, who once supported TARP and the Bridge to Nowhere, is somehow more constitutionally minded than Mitt?
