Happy Thursday everyone!
What did everyone think of the debate last night? I thought it was good. (If you missed it you can watch it here). Newt really won the night. Sarah points out what she liked here. I think Santorum probably struggled the most but I really don’t think anyone had a bad debate. Most had a bad topic but nothing disastrous except Paul’s foreign policy answers. Newt might get a small bump and Santorum might drop a bit in Arizona but I don’t think the overall outcome will be affected. However, I would love to see Newt win Arizona. Jan Brewer sounds like she really liked Newt and is planning to endorse before the primary next Tuesday.
Wow, Randy Scheunemann flatly denies the scenes in Game Change that involve him. He says that Gov. Palin never struggled with foreign policy. He doesn’t even work for her anymore and yet he felt compelled to speak out. We all know that we Palinistas have defended Gov. Palin thru the years and set the record straight. That is nothing new.
BUT what is new is Gov. Palin’s inner circle uniting in a very public way to speak out and the MSM giving them a voice. Have we EVER seen Meg Stapleton, Randy Scheunemann, Jason Recher, Tim Crawford, Tom Van Flein, Doug McMarlin and Andy Davis come together on a single phone call with the LSM media to defend her? EVER? Not to my recollection.
Who would have thought that the Associated Press, LA Times, Washington Post, The New York Times, ABC, Detroit Free Press, USA Today and CNN would be also be helping to set the record straight… These are hardly right wing news outlets. They didn’t spin Team Palin’s comments or defense. They didn’t take anything out of context. They just reported. Could this be a hint at the level of respect and influence Gov. Palin has earned these past few years? They don’t have to agree with her or like her but I get the sense that she has at least earned some respect. They would not have given her the time of day a few years ago.
We are expecting snow again today. This is the point when I start to get cabin fever because I know that our spring rain comes in the form of snow and our last snow is usually the first of May. That means I have about 2.5 months left of cold weather… sigh…
He has a real flare for noticing the obvious…
So are they going to compensate their employees when the thing blows up and either hurts someone or burns their house down?
Yep, this could happen… I say we go for brokered and not third party…
Yeah, why did they do that? and why didn’t they invite me? It looks so darn cool!
You can’t see me but I’m giving this bill a standing ovation… I hope it passes…
The biggest news from yesterday was the debate. Here is the best single minute from the night:
Have a great day everyone!
