John "Gang of 14, Amnesty for illlegals" McCain is no conservative, except maybe a few months prior to his next election. He is a RINO in the worst sense of that acronym. Although Sarah Palin may think she is being loyal to the man who placed her on the national stage a couple of autumns ago, she is deceived. In reality the principles she so eloquently espoused during the campaign helped him because his media-hyped and generated, faltering campaign needed a boost.
Now, her continued intimate involvement with Johnny Mac in his Senate re-election campaign will hurt her, even if it, unfortunately, might help him. She apparently is blind to his having used her for political, not principled reasons. McCain is a mealy mouthed moderate maverick. He is loyal only to himself. I would like to see a more conservative candidate such as J.D. Hayworth win the Republican nomination in Arizona. But, much like President Bush chose to support the liberal Arlen Specter over the Conservative Pat Toomey in the Pennsylvania GOP primary election six years ago, now Sarah chooses to do the exact same thing by supporting the runaway from conservatism maverick McCain.
I think Sarah Palin is making a mistake by supporting and campaigning with and for John McCain. Regrettably, it damages her conservative standing. You are known by the friends you keep. It weakens her chances for higher office. She now must be content with being a pretty talking head and a ‘conservative’ commentator and reality show star on Fox TV.
Do you think Sarah is a sell-out to true conservatism by supporting this fake conservative?
