The battle for the GOP begins tomorrow

This is an article at Politico which most of you have seen by now because it’s being discussed everywhere!  I wish I had more time to write about it and its broader implications but I’m off to the polls for the day.  Suffice it to say, no matter how factual this story is, Tea Party readers know that the 2012 war and who represents the voice of conservatives begins tomorrow.   If this is how Republicans plan to begin that war, by attacking Palin, they might just be sealing their own fate!

Top Republicans in Washington and in the national GOP establishment say the 2010 campaign highlighted an urgent task that they will begin in earnest as soon as the elections are over: Stop Sarah Palin.

Interviews with advisers to the main 2012 presidential contenders and with other veteran Republican operatives make clear they see themselves on a common, if uncoordinated, mission of halting the momentum and credibility Palin gained with conservative activists by plunging so aggressively into this year’s midterm campaigns.

Read it all and check out some of the 2000 plus comments!



  1. Well put. The GOP has become a large part of the big government beast that they used to stand against. Embracing the tea party movement & it’s ideals, while stepping away from the GOP or democrat aristocracy is what the voter is looking for, Democrat, Republican or Independant!

  2. I agree with Mr. Corbett. The GOP should have gotten the message with the defeat of several incumbents in this years primary. If they continue their big party politics they will become irrelevant to the Tea Party followers. If Sarah Palin is the best person available then she should receive consideration. I don’t know who I would support, but I do admire what she accomplished in Alaska.
    At this point in time, I don’t see a full-fledged Republican who stands out, but it’s still early.
