Politicohttp://www.politico.com/news/stories/0610/38302.htmlSome of Sarah Palins riskiest endorsements scored major victories Tuesday for the former Alaska governor, showing off her power in Republican primaries. Palin had four primary endorsements in play Carly Fiorina, Nikki Haley, Terry Branstad and Cecile Bledsoe and three won or moved on to a runoff.
I really think it's less about her than the movement she happens to support. I'm not saying she had no impact, but she also knew when to stand up on the surfboard, so to speak. In general, the electorate is PISSED. There is a growing backlash against massive federal deficits, social-welfare spending, unfettered immigration, kickbacks/deal-making, and arrogance of a Congress that is spitting upon the will of the people. Add to this the oil spill, where Obama has looked at times incompetent, at times frustrated and at times like he doesn't care, and it's not hard to see why we have the political situation we do.
The real question will be how this translates in November. The GOP still has a long load to hoe to take control, but it does seem the winds are blowing their direction.
