Wingnuts are unhappy with Palin.
…when Palin announced last week that she would campaign for McCain in his reelection primary battle against ultra-conservative former congressman J.D. Hayworth, some of her most vocal supporters were outraged that she would endorse McCain, who they see as a Republican in Name Only (RINO).
Fox News contributor Michelle Malkin wrote on her blog that “Tea Party activists are rightly outraged by Sarah Palin’s decision to campaign for McCain, whose entrenched incumbency and progressive views are anathema to the movement.”
On his radio show yesterday, Fox News host Glenn Beck told a caller upset by Palin’s move that “This Sarah Palin thing really bothers me.” “I am absolutely no fan of John McCain,” Beck said. “I want to have another sit down with her. How does she believe he is a good man when everyone in his organization trashed her?”
People just don’t seem to get Palin. They’re failing to understand that she has no convictions. She’s not really interested in much of anything except promoting the Palin Corporation. Health care, the environment, fiscal policies, terrorism, foreign policy, bank bailouts, John McCain, teabaggers, conservatism…if anyone believes that Palin spends any serious time pondering any of these, they’re either delusional or just haven’t been paying attention.
She doesn’t care. She has no real knowledge or understanding of any of the major issues and that is plenty fine with her. What she does understand is that there are enough simpletons out there to keep her gig at Fox going, to buy her books and to pay out $250 to hear her blabber on matters she is clueless about. And in the shallow world of Sarah Palin, that is all that truly matters.
