Forget the Weiner man’s sexting photos to the Rubenesque object of his lust. Forget Monica Lewinsky’s salacious newly released phone message recording to Bill Clinton. While America’s attention is being diverted by the stimulation of our delicious procreational instincts (S-E-X), our country is being sold out from under our feet by John McCain’s Gang of Eight and the pending immigration bill. And why is Sarah Palin’s name in my headline as a big player in this treachery? Get comfortable. Read on:
I read with some disgust that the former Alaska Governor, once celebrated as the conservative saviour half of the Repulicans’ 2008 Presidential ticket, is now spilling the beans about how the McCain team muzzled her during that ill-fated campaign. On nation-wide television, Palin says that she wasn’t allowed to talk about Barack Obama’s long term communist/racist/terrorist associations. I watched part of the FoxNews Greta Van Susteren video interview, during which she aired her grievances.
It is a sickening piece of footage. Palin sounds like a whining, wheedling high school cheerleader who’s been caught smoking in the bathroom and is snitching on her friends to get herself off the hook.
And what’s Sarah Palin on the hook for, you might be asking? A lot. A tidal wave of new Democrats is about to crash onto America’s shores, forever changing the political landscape.
And what did the former Alaska Gov have to do with any of that?
In 2010 Senator John McCain, whom radio talk show host Mark Levin justifiably calls a “disaster” as a politician, was in a virtual neck and neck Arizona senate race with primary challenger J.D. Hayworth, a hardliner Tea Party type on the illegal immigration issue. In April, 2010, the Phoenix Business Journal reported that only five percentage points separated the two candidates in a Rasmussen poll, despite McCain’s overwhelming financial advantage.
Enter Sarah Palin, who proceeded to campaign for McCain, to help him retain his seat in the Senate. By July the McCain lead had widened. NewsReal Blog’s John Guardiano published a column in April 2010, within which he opined that Palin’s support of McCain made no political or personal sense. Guardiano wrote:
A new poll suggests that Sarah Palin’s recent campaign swing in Arizona has paid off for Senator John McCain. And at least some conservatives, like NewsReal Blog’sJenn Q. Public, laud Palin for her “loyalty” to McCain.
Not me. As far as I’m concerned, Palin’s decision makes no personal or political sense.
She owes McCain, after all, absolutely nothing. Palin paid off whatever debt she might have owed McCain during the 2008 presidential campaign. This is something that even Steve Schmidt, McCain’s 2008 campaign manager, now acknowledges. Palin, Schmidt says, was a net plus for the McCain campaign.
Moreover, McCain’s political team seriously mishandled Palin by hiding her from friendly conservative journalists and then serving her up, unprepared and with no real warm-up runs, to a hostile liberal media. This resulted, unfortunately, in Palin’s disastrous interviews with ABC News’ Charlie Gibson and CBS News’ Katie Couric.
Yet some of this same McCain crowd are now spearheading the senator’s 2010 re-election campaign. And Palin, inexplicably, is helping them — after they maligned her! And they have continued to disparage Palin, by trashing her (anonymously of course) in the media…
(Emphasis is mine.)
But, what does all that have to do with what’s going on now? It has everything to do with right now:
The Arizona voters had a chance to rid themselves of John McCain, who has long been a treacherous enemy of the Tea Party movement and conservatism. Yes. He’s a war hero. God bless him for that. But Mark Levin is right. McCain’s been a political disaster. His re-election in 2010, thanks in no small part to Sarah Palin’s endorsement and campaign efforts on his behalf, has turned into a developing national catastrophe, as he and New York Senator Chuck Schumer push the current Senate immigration bill, which in all probability would not survive in the House of Representatives, toward conference resolution of the two houses’ differences.
I’m not using that word catastrophe in a hyperbolic sense.
Sarah Palin is now trying to distance herself from the nation-wrecking disaster which John McCain and his Gang of Eight are about to visit upon America. It’s too little too late. Her fingerprints are all over this deal, by virtue of what she did for McCain in 2010.
As talk show host Laura Ingraham has said, any time a bill goes to conference, the Senate runs jack-booted over the House. Ingraham recently stated on her radio show that if the pending bill goes to conference, the amnesty will be a done deal. She ought to know.
As if what I’ve given you to this point isn’t enough, McCain is now backing away from the promised 20,000 new Border Patrol Agents he voted for in the original bill. This is how he does business.
Bottom line here is that when the amnesty passes and illegal aliens currently in the U.S.A. are granted citizenship, the Democrat Party will pick up millions of new voters, so that you can kiss a two-party system of governance good bye forever. The United States will become a one-party state.
Maybe after the amnesty passes Sarah Palin and John McCain can become Democrats?
