The Freepers and I both hate Fox News. Granted, I hate it because it’s biased beyond reason and it gives brainless scream-tards like O’Reilly a platform and they hate it because of its “hatchet job on Sarah Palin”, but this could be the start of something. More specifically, it could be the start of the disintegration of the GOP as we know it: The party bosses are throwing Palin under the bus for her role in the McCain loss, probably because blaming it all on her means they don’t have to acknowledge how badly Bush and the Neocons tainted the entire Conservative movement in this country and their complete inability to find a single candidate with near the charisma of Obama.
However, Palin really resonated with people that the GOP could count on in the past. The Religious Right, the more rural and less affluent Republicans, see in Palin a good Christian stay-at-home mom who represents just about everything they want in a woman: Conservative values, strong church-going roots, plenty of experience raising children (even a special-needs child), and the ability to say things like “Drill, Baby, Drill” to slap the enviro-nazis in the face. They want Palin to run for President in 2012 and probably don’t especially care to see McCain ever again. If the GOP dumps 2008 on Palin these people could join up with the Constitution Party and begin spoiling elections for the GOP, like the Greens tend to spoil things for the Democrats.
