Sarah Palin does her usual Monday morning quarterbacking and says that Tea Party candidates should mount primary challenges to those Republicans who didn’t align with Ted Cruz and fight to the death over the budget, the debt ceiling and Obamacare.
When asked on The Kelly File on Thursday if she would support primary challengers to Senators Mitch McConnell (R-KY), Lamar Alexander (R-TN), Lindsey Graham (R-SC), and Thad Cochran (R-MS), Palin noted they were part of the “status quo” and said she would be looking very closely at their challengers.
“I’ve been saying for years that robust competitive primaries make for a better political system,” Palin said. “It makes people work harder and express more articulately what their record is and what their intentions for our country is.”
Palin said that those like Sens. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Mike Lee (R-UT) “and a whole lot of other Americans see that we are taxed enough already.”Palin noted that is the “acronym for the Tea Party movement, we are taxed enough already and we believe that the constitution, that’s the blueprint that leads us towards a more perfect union and will fight very strong for that.”
“So if the GOP is standing strong on the planks and the platform that represent everything that I just mentioned, if we stand united, well, then we won’t lose the House, and we could even win back the Senate,” she continued…
“Heck, yeah, they’ve got to be primaried,” Palin said. “Otherwise we’re going down.”
She’d run herself, but that’s work and she’s allergic to that. So instead she’ll just endorse every wingnut she can find who is running against a more mainstream Republican. Because that worked out so well when she endorsed Sharron Angle, Christine O’Donnell and several other far-right Republicans who lost seats that the Republicans would almost certainly have won with a more centrist candidate. The Democrats should send Palin a thank you gift.
