CommentsI enjoyed your article and think you are correct in describing how the Republican Party bailed on Mrs. Palin as well as Mr. Romney. It is typical of a party that has no problem shooting their wounded. But I think you miss an important point. Sarah Palin’s brash and polarizing positions and personality have shredded our party. Because of her inflammatory style and demonization of bipartisan politics, so many conservatives now have specific litmus tests attached to their vote. Republicans will now have to leap frog each other in every primary to out-right each other which may win local or even certain state elections, but the White House is now light-years away.

There was absolutely NOTHING wrong with Sarah Palin. The real disappointment for me was that the Republican party did not fully support her.
When so many in our country targeted her and defamed her I was equally as disappointed in the American people.
Thanks for your article and setting the record straight!

Thank you for writing about Sarah Palin and the vicious treatment she was subjected to, by both sides of the political spectrum. From the very first I saw of her, I felt she was a woman to be admired. I've never been able to understand how conservatives and republicans could have done so much to undermine her influence during the 2008 campaign. As a parent of a severely retarded little girl, I loved the fact that her sweet little boy wasn't hidden away, that her whole family was involved and supportive, that she showed courage and "class" (severely absent in the people presently occupying the White House), through all of the attacks on her. I would vote for her for any position she might try for.
About me; I'm a born and raised liberal, who, thanks to CFP, in 2007, actually discovered that conservatives were not the evil, religion-crazed, racist,etc., that I was brought up to believe. By the time the 2008 elections took place, I'd been reading CFP for almost a year and knew more about obama's character, or lack thereof, than anyone I knew. I encouraged friends to read the articles so they might get a better picture of who obama really was. Or at least more than our own esteemed media cared to reveal. I voted for McCain mainly because of Ms Palin. I think she must be quite a lady!!
I've been reading your columns all these years, and I'm so glad there are proud,independent, patriotic, black-Americans like you. Thanks for some terrific reading. Melissa Levey

The lesson in the betrayal of Sarah Palin
Posted by Lloyd Marcus on Jan 22, 2013 at 09:45 AM
Have we learned something from the Republican/Conservative betrayal of Palin
Rush Limbaugh on his radio show discussed an article which stated that there is no respected voice in the national arena articulating Conservatism. Such an advocate for Conservatism is crucial to reversing the direction of America as Obama drives us toward socialism while low-info voters gleefully sing Kumbaya in the backseat.More...
