OK, I am a huge Palin fan who is stymied as to what this is all about:
â€œVirginia, hello, this is Sarah Palin calling to urge you to go to the polls Tuesday and vote to share our principles,â€ the former Alaska governor says in the call, which was provided to CNN by one Democrat who recorded it. â€œThe eyes of America will be on Virginia and make no mistake about it, every vote counts. So donâ€™t take anything for granted, vote your values on Tuesday, and urge your friends and family to vote, too.â€
No mention of McDonnell, which is fine. I prefer she endorse the entire swath of GOP candidates who are going to knock out Democrats large and small across the state tomorrow in an undeniable backlash against the DC liberals in Congress and the White House. She surely is not supporting Deeds!
But this race is over, not sure what these calls do other than get the anti-Dem crowd out in vast numbers. Once the damage is tallied in VA it will be crystal clear this was not just an isolated race or one candidate. It is the first warning sign of a tsunami heading for the Democrat Party.
Is Palin trying to associate herself with this movement? I hope so. But everyone must remember this movement will not be co-opted by any one group. This is not the far right rising, this is not the centrists rising, this is not the GOP rising. This is America rising in opposition to liberal democrats – and that is plenty enough.
