Palin's Twitter Backlash
Defending nasty Laura was a bad move 


Palin's post-VP nominee career has so far benefited from bomb-throwing. The process follows a
tight script -- a crude, semi-calculated comment is shot into the middle of a political debate via
Facebook or Twitter. It gains national attention. Liberals are outraged. Conservatives rush to her
defense. Sarah Palin dominates a news cycle and becomes more beloved by her base. But by
unnecessarily rushing to the defense of Dr. Laura Schlessinger -- after she dropped the N-bomb
11 times and told the caller 'don't marry outside of your race' -- Sarah Palin might finally have
gone too far and picked a fight she cannot win...

This is the sound of Sarah Palin jumping the shark in two tweets:

Dr.Laura: don't retreat ... reload! (Steps aside bc her 1st Amend.rights ceased 2exist thx
   2activists trying 2silence"isn't American, not fair")
• Dr.Laura=even more powerful & effective w/out the shackles, so watch out
  Constitutional obstructionists. And b thankful 4 her voice, America!

The few black conservative candidates, columnists, and media figures -- who represent the GOP's
only hope for reclaiming the legacy of Lincoln and, with it, long-term demographic relevance -- are not
amused. They're now saying what many in the GOP increasingly believe: Sarah Palin is not fit to be
a serious leader of the Republican Party. I spoke to Michel Faulkner, the former NFL player and
Harlem preacher challenging Charlie Rangel for a House seat, and he was unsparing in his criticism:
'Why Sarah Palin feels she needs to join in to Dr. Laura's personal meltdown is beyond me. She's
sounding like she just likes to hear her own voice -- and the voice that she has is no longer credible.'

It says that a leading voice among conservatives has joined the ranks of the entertainers - trying to
shock us each day with more and more outlandish commentary. And at that moment that person
is no longer fit to lead.

When was Sarah Palin ever fit to lead?
It's not like she had a stroke and isn't her old self anymore.

Sure, she could get smart, but Sarah is VERY proud of her ignorance.
When you make $100K per speech, why bother to become educated?
