Republican Representative Wishes Sarah Palin Would “Butt-Out” of Primaries

Republican to Palin: Butt Out
Republican to Palin: Butt Out

Before Republican Gubernatorial Candidate Karen Handel conceded today, Georgia Republican Representative Jack Kingston was on the radio show “America’s Morning News” with John McCaslin & Amy Holmes when he expressed his displeasure with Sarah Palin sticking her nose into Republican primaries all over the country, and said he thought Georgians would be “doin’ their own thing”. Kingston prefers Palin “butt out” of Georgia politics and urges Republicans to “rethink Palin as someone who shoots from the hip.”

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, it appears that there’s trouble in paradise. Sarah Palin is still a dilemma for the Republican Party, even after she agreed to deliver her Tea Party base to them in exchange for not being called out for her really bad behavior during the 2008 campaign. Now it’s not the uber socially conservative Tea Party stirring up difficulty for the GOP, but Palin’s Mama Grizzly strategy.

Apparently, Palin’s criteria for endorsing a candidate doesn’t include their values or what they stand for. I guess she’s just doin’ what Mama Grizzlies do or something. She just goes by her gut. The issue, according to Kingston, is that Handel is apparently not always anti-choice. Sure, she might have been busy fudging around with Diebold machines in 2002* in an attempt to follow Katherine Harris’ imprint on history, but I guess Handel draws the line at rape and thinks maybe women should have the right to choose whether or not to have a baby under those circumstances.

The Georgian GOP can’t forgive Palin for endorsing such a candidate.

Yes, you heard that right. But that’s a whole separate issue. Remember, this is Georgia. Now you can see why Palin should have been able to deliver a candidate in this state.

Listen here to a clip shortened by Palingates:

KINGSTON: Why Sarah Palin decided to get in the race is beyond me. I don’t know why she feels compelled to get into primaries all over the country. But, you know, fortunately Georgia voters are doing their own thinking on things like this. Ah Newt Gingrich is one of our own, you might say he worked closely with Nathan and actually Governor Huckabee did as well–

HOLMES: And he’s from Georgia as well.

KINGSTON: — And I’m not used to these people comin’ in and endorsing candidates.


HOLMES: So, congressman, would you have preferred Sarah Palin just kind of butt out of it?

KINGSTON: I wish she will, because what’s she’s doing is dividing the Republican party at a time when we don’t need to be divided because in a case like this, really what people were saying, ‘Well, she’s endorsing Karen Handel because she’s a woman’ and she got up on stage on Monday and said, ‘I’m not doing it because she’s a woman – although she is a sister.’ You know — wink, wink. And, and I understand that. But what it does is, it makes Republicans say, well, maybe we do need to rethink Karen Han – I mean, um, Sarah Palin, as somebody who does shoot from the hip a little bit much- too much. Because here in this case, I think Karen Handel is a very decent candidate, but she’s clearly the more moderate person in the race……..
Sarah Palin came in and endorsed the moderate so I think it hurts Sarah Palin a lot more than it does um the candidates back home, as you can see with Nathan Deal he’s appearing to pull this out despite Sarah Palin.

So the basic message is that Sarah Palin picks her candidates willy nilly and they’d like her to butt out of their business and out of Republican primaries because she is dividing the party. Hey, guess what boys?

She is dividing the country. So if you get to tell her to “butt out” of your state and your party, please allow us, the American citizens, to follow that up with a resounding request that she please, for the love of God, “butt out” of our country’s important business.

Oh, and boys? She’s all your creation. You made the monster of an attack dog and now you don’t like it when it’s being used against you. The fact that eventually Sarah Palin would come back to bite y’all in the bums was about as predictable as …. the 2008 election.

In case you didn’t notice, the country said “NO” way back then.

What took y’all so long?

*Notes for those interested in allegations of Handel’s election corruption (When I heard Palin endorsed her, I kind of figured this was why):

From Talking Points Memo: “There is a lawsuit is pending before the Georgia Supreme Court that “challenges the legality and constitutionality of current Georgia elections based on admissions collected from the state’s own expert witnesses during depositions. These admissions include the lack of an independent audit trail that was legally required, the inability to detect vote machine recording errors and the inability to detect manipulation of election results on the tabulation servers. Plaintiffs contend that such evidence clearly shows that their right to vote and have their vote properly counted has been abridged….

And in a separate issue:

“Ohio Attorney Cliff Arnebeck requests GA Sec. of State Karen Handel hold E-Voting Docs/Equipment for use in a racketeering lawsuit being prepared under the Ohio Corrupt Practices Act against designated principal perpetrator, Karl Rove, and others for corrupting US elections throughout the past decade. Arnebeck writes Handel: “We are in the process of preparing a racketeering claim under the Ohio Corrupt Practices Act against Karl Rove as the principal perpetrator, and other individuals acting in association with him, to corrupt elections in the United States over the course of this decade. Ground zero for this activity in 2000 was Florida, in 2004 was Ohio, and in 2002 was Georgia.”

Lovin’ me those Mama Grizzlies.

  1. I’m with you, Sarah, loving those Mama Grizzlies too. She’s sort of like a loose cannonball bouncing around on the deck of a ship in stormy seas. You never know where she will strike or why but it’s becoming increasingly likely what the effect will be. The “Palin Effect” will no doubt enter our language after the midterms.

  2. Well the peebots are livid! Call the Whambulance! He should apologize to the mama Sow(ee)
    Well…I think mama Sow(ee) should apologize to POTUS for IMPLYING he lacked cajones even though we KNOW she Projects HER insecurities on others, Sooooooooo……SARAH PALIN HAS NO BALLZ!

  3. Sarah Palin endorsed Brian Murphy for Gov. of Maryland. Mark Plotkin (WTOP) interviewed Murphy on 8-6-10. (Wish I could post the link on here for everyone to hear) Murphy insists that Palin used “due diligence for six months” before endorsing him, and yet he admits he has never personally talked OR met with Palin. Murphy is pro-life with no exceptions, supports the 2nd Amendment and SB1070 in Arizona. Where do these people come from?? Amazing.

    If McShame had used “due diligence” in “vetting” Palin, he may have discovered that his lamebrain choice would lead to the biggest and most bizarre hoax in the history of American politics, the FACT that a sitting governor FAKED her pregnancy! See the 7-30-10 post at Palingates.

  4. Almost anyone could have predicted that Palin would eventually become an albatross around the neck of the GOP. Like a grizzly mama, she jumps right in without thinking, and doesn’t seem to ponder the potential consequences. Of course, the GOP is reaping what it has sown, because she has done a lot of damage to political discourse. I have absolutely no sympathy for them, because they have become a party of far right whackos, and they’re only angry with her because this time she didn’t pick the lunatic fringe candidate.

  5. Aww all the bots who send her money for new cars and fences. I mean all the money she spends to back conservatives who know the Constitution and fight for our freedoms and such also too. It seems it is just spent for naught because she was never taught.

  6. Legislator resigns after ‘dead Palin’ comment

    Posted: August 12th, 2010 02:15 PM ET

    From CNN Political Producer Peter Hamby

    New Hampshire State Rep. Timothy Horrigan resigned Thursday after making comments about Sarah Palin on Facebook.
    (CNN) – A New Hampshire state legislator resigned his office Thursday after becoming the second Democrat in as many days to speculate about Sarah Palin’s death on Facebook.

    State Rep. Timothy Horrigan made the remarks Wednesday night in a thread discussing the Alaska plane crash that killed former Sen. Ted Stevens.

    “Well a dead Palin wd be even more dangerous than a live one…she is all about her myth & if she was dead she cldn’t commit any more gaffes,” Horrigan wrote.

    A shining example of Leftist humanism in action…MORON!!!!

  7. What this is actually indicative of is that the Left doesn’t tolerate this kind of behavior, contrary to the Right. To wit the many calls for Obama’s death and the prayers for Obama’s death that the Right not only tolerates but stirs up. And Palin is one of the larger leaders of this sort of angry, violent rhetoric.

    Oh, and John, is this your admission that talking about someone dying is a bad thing? Just want to be clear here, since Republicans have been justifying their calls for Obama’s death and their prayers for his death as free speech.

  8. Sarah,

    What examples/proof do you have of republicans calling/praying for Obama’s death? If there are republican legislatures making these comments they should have the same fate as Mr. Horrigan. We may disagree, but wishing for someone to die is absolutely uncalled for. I’ve not read or seen anything like this so I don’t understand how you can make these claims. If there were I would imagine MSNBC would be in a tizzy.

  9. What proof do I have? Where have you been? It was all over the news and the internet. The imprecatory prayers were just one example of this. So called Christians praying for the President’s death in their churches, online, starting facebook groups for that purpose, — it’s abhorrent.

    The Death threats against this president are up significantly from previous presidents. The DHS report suggests the far right as source of domestic terrorism and you are asking me where the proof is?

    I agree with you that NO ONE should speak that way about anyone and I agree that the person who wrote that about Palin was right to step down. What I don’t agree with is how hubristic and self-righteous the outrage over this is. Where’s the outrage over this happening to our President?

    A value is only worth something if it applies to everyone, regardless of team, party, etc. Until the Right starts to denounce some of their more ugly rhetoric, their outrage is hollow to me. The very hate they scream out ever since Obama took office is ruining this country and yet none of the leaders denounce it.

    Except Huckabee looks like he is starting to walk this craziness back and good for him. Maybe he sees that it is not politically advantageous to become the voice of hate or maybe he truly has a moral center; but either way, he is alone in standing up for what’s right currently on the Right.
