The opening salvo of the 2016 Republican primary race
Posted by Jill | 7:09 PM
Yes, you read correctly: 2016. For there's a little flame war going on between Evita Mooselini and that OTHER media attention whore, Chris Christie:

The New Jersey governor made headlines over the weekend by calling Newt Gingrich an “embarrassment” to the Republican Party, but this rhetoric, according to Palin, was nothing more than a “rookie mistake.”

“Poor Chris. This was a rookie mistake. He played right into the media’s hands,” Palin said on Fox Business Network late Monday. “The host had asked Chris, ‘Does Newt embarrass the party?’ I think he asked him twice, and there, Chris played right into it.”

She added, “You know, sometimes, if your candidate loses in just one step along this path, as was the case when Romney lost to Newt the other night — and, of course, Romney is Chris Christie’s guy — well, you kind of get your panties in a wad, and you may say things that you regret later. And I think that that’s what Chris Christie did.”

Palin charged that answering the question the way he did in response to the host’s question demonstrated a “lack of self-discipline” on Christie’s part — a mistake the former Alaska governor boasted she herself had already learned not to make.

Uh...yeah. Right.

Which one in 2016? I assume you mean Governor Tub - o - Lard and not the Grifter from Wassila. Or maybe the Mittbot 5000. It should go without saying that 2012 is decisive to answering that question. Thirty years of relentless right-wing shifting of the legal framework has created an extremist GOP on the right-wing and a largely center-right Democratic party. There is no national Progresive or even Liberal voice; that exists, at all, only at the state and local government levels (as well as the opposite extremist right wing movements, viz. Old South and parts of the West). Having said that, even Montana is getting pissed off with Citizens United. Imagine that. The only real question is at what level of poverty does America says "enough".

This, coming from a rookie half-Governor who's also a rookie to basic literacy.
