Maverick v. Maverick: the Angry Clash between Palin and McCain
There’s an angry clash going on between McCain and Palin, who wants to run for President in 2012.
The clash is a dirty little secret, but I have the Inside Scoop.
Sadly, much of the Republican Party has become the Party of Fear, Ignorance and Hate.
I suspect that’s why so many respectable Republicans are leaving the sinking McCain ship, including, incredibly, even conservative donors to the McCain campaign, and Colin Powell, Chris Buckley (son of William F. Buckley), Reagan Solicitor General Charles Fried, and former South Dakota Senator Larry Pressler.
There is certrainly a place for a thoughtful Republican Party in America. Perhaps after a great loss, the party will regroup and find its soul outside its current tropes of fear, ignorance, and hate. There’s a great article about that here: http://www.nytimes.com/2008/10/26/opinion/26egan.html?ref=opinion
If not, as a Democrat, I have to say: GO PALIN IN 2012!
