Update: Ed Morrissey has a good post and lots of comments at Hot Air – end update
News out of Nebraska in yesterday’s GOP senate primary is a good sign there is yet hope for this country. The Palin-Cain candidate took the honors in garnering another US Senate seat for We The People:
Nebraska state Senator Deb Fischer pulled off a surprise upset victory against Nebraska Attorney General Jon Bruning in the state’s Republican Senate primary Tuesday, marking the second contest in two weeks in which an establishment favorite was upended by a dark horse candidate in a Senate primary.
Fischer secured the endorsements of former Alaska governor Sarah Palin and former presidential candidate Herman Cain, and she also got a boost from Joe Ricketts, the owner of the Chicago Cubs and founder of TD Ameritrade
I am glad to see more and more establishment candidates failing. We don’t need any more deadwood in DC right now. We need change. Palin change.
Last night we also got to watch the Palin documentary “The Undefeated“:
All I can say is please, please, please watch this movie to understand what we are up against, and what kind of candidates we need to fix this country. The movie had me a bit blue, after being reminded of how much Palin stood for that is right and at the core of the Tea Party movement. I am still frustrated we lost that moment, and many others since. As the documentary indicates, it was Palin who really produced the flame that lit the 2010 election results. She was the first Tea Partier.
I only wish she had not bowed out this round.
As a shorter reminder, I also suggest people listen once again to her acceptance speech in the 2008 convention. While we have been derailed by a spineless GOP leadership in Congress and a pathetic Democrat led Senate (which has taken “do nothing” to a whole new level), we must occasionally reconnect to the core message of Palin and the Tea Party. We cannot lose site of the end goal here, because it will take years to achieve.
