Governor Sarah Palin was scratched as a speaker for a major Republican congressional fundraiser in Washington and replaced by Neo Con poodle Newt Gingrich. But then fearing a backlash from the GOP, Senator John Cornyn, pompous ass incarnate, begged her to come. She agreed. But she won’t be allowed to speak out of fears she would overshadow Gingrich. The Republican primary campaign will probably be a race between Palin and whoever the GOP Establishment pukes up. That race will be important because the continuing economic crisis (and the wars) could doom Obama to one-term status like the man he modeled his campaign after, Jimmy Carter. The Washington Bi-Partisan consensus fears Palin. But the Neo Cons are trying to groom her, just in case. Will this grooming also be a grope? Wait and see.
