When Liberals Suggest Republican Candidates, Do the Opposite!

Sandra Fish has written a piece for Politics Daily in which she describes the steps Sarah Palin, Michele Bachmann and Sharron Angle are taking to test the waters for a possible presidential campaign.  She asks the question “…is this really the best the GOP can do?”

She then goes on at length complaining about Palin slamming the media on Thanksgiving Day, Bachmann for daring to speak to the Tea Party after the State of the Union and Angle for saying, “I’ll tell you the first thing we need to do is take Harry Reid out.”

Then, in typical liberal fashion, she offers up ‘better’ candidates to the Republicans:  Condoleeza Rice, Elizabeth Dole, Olympia Snowe, Susan Collins, Mitt Romney, Tim Pawlenty and Newt Gingrich.

Anytime the liberals are suggesting candidates to the Republicans, it’s time to do exactly the opposite.  The very fact that Republicans such as Palin and Bachmann are continually attacked is a sure sign they are feared and that they would be formidable, conservative candidates.

If Republicans want to reclaim the White House in 2012, a moderate candidate will not energize the Republicans and get the base to the polls.  Anyone who doubts that should look back to 2008 when Sarah Palin was added to the McCain ticket.  Even as a vice presidential candidate she added energy and excitement to the Republicans and almost got the liberal-leaning John McCain elected President.

Sandra Fish thinks the Republicans can do better (more liberal candidates), but she sure doesn’t seem to mind writing about the Palins.  Thirteen of her last twenty columns have been about either Sarah or Bristol Palin.  Perhaps the Washington Post’s Dana Milbank should give her a call and remind her of his suggested media moratorium on the Palins.  The attacks can begin anew come March.
