Good riddance to bad rubbish:

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, the 2008 Republican nominee for vice president responded to a Fox News Channel viewer’s Twitter question Saturday about the possibility of her and conservative talker Mark Levin abandoning the Republican Party and creating something called the “Freedom Party.
Palin suggested she is open to the idea and said that if the GOP continues to abandon its conservative principles, other would follow suit.
“I love the name of that party — the ‘Freedom Party,’” Palin said. “And if the GOP continues to back away from the planks in our platform, from the principles that built this party of Lincoln and Reagan, then yeah, more and more of us are going to start saying, ‘You know, what’s wrong with being independent,’ kind of with that libertarian streak that much of us have. In other words, we want government to back off and not infringe upon our rights. I think there will be a lot of us who start saying ‘GOP, if you abandon us, we have nowhere else to go except to become more independent and not enlisted in a one or the other private majority parties that rule in our nation, either a Democrat or a Republican.’ Remember these are private parties, and you know, no one forces us to be enlisted in either party.”
As I wrote in the comments section of another blog:
I got one thing to say to her.
Don’t let the door hit ya, where the good lord split ya. Who needs her? She’s about the worst spokesperson for the GOP ever.
Let her and Levin go create some third party and LOSE.
GOP is the only way, the thing to do is elect people who are real Conservatives. Like Ron Paul, Like Pat Buchanan, Like Mark Sanford. and not these idiot Neocons.
Yeah, Mark Sanford screwed up; big frigging deal! So did Bill Clinton and everyone still loves him. But, yet, a Conservative messes up and its the end of his career? I call bullcrap on that one. Anyhow, the point is this: We need to elect real Conservatives in the GOP — people that will uphold the Constitution, uphold the rule of law and if the GOP is not doing that — then we elect those who will —- it is just that simple. Starting third parties is a ticket to loserville, just ask Ross Perot.
Just my two cents.
