Time For Us Conservatives To Come Back To Earth
End of the best week ever

OK, gang... The Kennedy Throne has been flipped ass-over-tea kettle; to the chagrin of Lefties everywhere, the Supreme Court decides to uphold the 1st Amendment; and Air America shuts down

Michelle Malkin is playing Jiminy Cricket for those of us on the Right... and he sure as hell need to heed her warning. Here's some of it from her website, MichelleMalkin.com; (Emphasis mine)

Conservatives: Beware of McCain Regression Syndrome
By Michelle Malkin • January 22, 2010 09:10 AM

The question isn’t why Sarah Palin is helping John McCain. The question is: What are you doing to stop him from cementing his Big Government Republican legacy?

Pay attention: In the afterglow of the Massachusetts Miracle, there are flickers of peril for The Right. I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but like Paul Revere’s midnight-message, consider this warning “a cry of defiance, and not of fear.” Conservatives have worked hard over the past year to rebuild after Big Government Republican John McCain’s defeat. But McCain isn’t going gently into that good night.

Red Flag Number One: A reader from Arizona informed me the day after the Bay State Bombshell that he had received a robo-call from Massachusetts GOP Sen.-elect Scott Brown. “He basically wanted me to vote for John McCain in November,” the reader said in his description of the automated campaign call supporting the four-term Sen. McCain’s re-election bid. “No wonder [Brown] said he hadn’t had any sleep…he was busy recording phone messages!”

Red Flag Number Two: Also in the wake of the Massachusetts special election, the nation’s most popular conservative political figure, Sarah Palin, announced she would be campaigning for her former running mate in Arizona in March. Palin told Facebook followers that she’s going to “ride the tide with commonsense candidates” and help “heroes and statesmen” like McCain. Facing mounting conservative opposition in his home state and polls showing him virtually tied with possible GOP challenger and former Rep. J.D. Hayworth, McCain welcomed the boost: “Sarah energized our nation and remains a leading voice in the Republican Party.”

Savor the irony: After a career spent bashing the right flank of the party, Sen. McCain is now clinging to its coattails to save his incumbent hide.

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. At least she has an excuse: She’s caught between a loyalty rock and a partisan hard place. The conservative base has no such obligations – and it is imperative that they get in the game (as they did in Massachusetts) before it’s too late. The movement to restore limited government in Washington has come too far, against all odds, to succumb to McCain Regression Syndrome now.

I woudn't be so fast to condemn Palin. I think her support is not a surprise, especially given the honest, straight-talker that she is. Palin obviously recognized she owes McCain a debt of honor. She would not be known & loved by so many or getting millions from Fox News but for McCain bringing her into the national spotlight.

That said, it is time for McCain to go. Recall that the campaign m\law that was just overturned by the USSCt was called the McCain-Feingold bill (another example of his fine "bi-parisanship").

We need to support conservative former Congressman J.D. Hayworth, McCain's rival, for the Senate seat with our prayers and dollars.

(BTW, have you sent a contribution - even a small one -- to Danny Tarkanian to beat Sen. Reid in Nevada? Go to www.Tark2010.org.)

If the voters actually turn around from their moral malaise, then Palin is not going to be on the ticket on 012. Her best bet would be to win a House seat, and then be installed as Speaker, where she could constantly beat up on Zombie Pelosi.

Why wouldn't she be on the ticket? Because if the voters turn around, then they'll want some heavy hitting character who can keep the billclintones of this nation at sit.

Who might the contestants number? No one from California ... nobody here who can even stuff governator back into his steroid cabinet. What about Texas? What about Joe Arpaio down in Arizona ... Whoa ... just hit me, a combo ticket with Arpaio and Palin.

Ok here is the winning GOP ticket for 012: Arpaio and Palin. I think I'll order my bumper stickers now.

Dick Armey could run the campaign. There are some other GOPers who have pretty good planks, but what they don't have that is crucial is the aggressive in your face shut up until I tell you you can squeak attitude and manner.

If we want to defeat political correctness ... bring in Sheriff Joe Arpaio. His first act could be to arrest the commies who are now harrassing him in a grand jury and throw them in his jail with pink underwear and tents to live and dream in.

Arpaio / Palin
