In a post arguing that Sarah Palin doesn’t owe John McCain anything, John Guardiano wonders why the former Alaska governor is campaigning for the longtime Arizona Senator.
I don’t know the answer, but the more I think about it, the less sense it makes that Tea Party types like former Governor Palin so much. Think about it. Folks in the conservative movement dislike John McCain, and are suspicious of folks who like him. They also dislike politicians who say things they don’t believe to get elected.
Sarah Palin spent campaign 2008 talking about how wonderful John McCain is. If she really believes this, why doesn’t it worry Tea Partiers who hate John McCain? If she doesn’t really believe that McCain would make a good president, doesn’t it bother them that she campaigned for him, and especially that now, when the White House isn’t at stake, she continues to campaign for him?
Either Sarah Palin is a John McCain loving Republican or she is a liar.
Neither of those traits are generally acceptable to Tea Partiers.
Yet they love Sarah Palin.
