Smitty: Let’s Outsource The Choosing Of Conservative Leaders To, Say. . .Politico

Smitty over at The Other McCain has an interesting take on the latest hit piece based on gutless anonymous GOP sources at the Democrat blog, Politico:

As a PsyOps piece, it’s brilliant. We’re treated to a stream of innuendo about halting the Mamma Grizzly coming from:

1.top Republicans
2.advisers to the main 2012 presidential contenders
3.other veteran Republican operatives
4.GOP elites
5.establishment figures
6.one prominent and longtime Washington Republican
7.interviews with top advisers to the candidates most frequently mentioned as running in 2012
8.other top GOP officials
9.top advisers
10.many establishment figures
11.A longtime Republican leader
12.party elders
13.establishment
14.strategists and 2012 aspirants
15.party elites

[…]

Look, nobody cares much for the vast egos floating, in the hot-air baloon fashion, at that altitude. The GOP establishment weenies have been at least silent accomplices to the current ruin of the country. About the only thing to say in favor of these twerps is that the Tea Party phenomenon is comparatively recent, and hasn’t proven a long-term source of political will for something better. Nevertheless, where the ‘France’ were these famous GOP wunderkinder in 1992, when Ross Perot was breathing fire? Certainly, Perot was less fetching than Palin in pumps, so what was the problem then? Oh, I think I know.

Rove, one of the few establishment types to raise flags publicly about a Palin bid, this week told Britain’s Daily Telegraph that her upcoming reality show on cable TV could diminish her presidential standing. “I am not certain how this fits in the American calculus of ‘that helps me see you in the Oval Office,’” Rove said.

Rove, let me rock your little world with a question: what if Sarah Palin is smarter than you? Seriously. You’re either playing a sly bad cop role here, or maybe you’re past your sell-by date.
