Democrats, Conservatives AND Sarah Palin are Being Played by Karl Rove!
All weekend I've been enthralled in this internet controversy over rumors that Sarah Palin's youngest son is really her daughter's child!
I confess. I got sucked in. I've spent the last 36 hours reading blogs on every site that I could find.
I've also watched Huffington Post and most other sites dig up other damaging negative facts about this controversial VP pick all weekend (Drip..Drip..Drip..)
Then out of the blue it happened. I read this totally unrelated blog and had an epiphany: This blogger is right.
We have ALL been baited by political genius Karl Rove!
But it goes further than just Democrats!
SARAH PALIN is a Rovian sacrificial lamb! I doubt that she even knows it yet! Why would they throw her and her family to the lions?
Easy. She made a lot of high level Republican enemies. When Rove needed a controversial candidate to take the news cycle away from Obama and ultimately make the conservatives happy to have Lieberman or Romney, they selected her, KNOWING about "trooper-gate" and "baby-gate"!
Sure, the "head fake" operation would most assuredly ruin her career and nationally embarrass her and her family, but who in the Republican Party would care? The State Republican Party in Alaska is investigating her for "trooper gate". She took out a high level incumbent Republican Governor in a primary, and came out against Ted Stevens. A politically savvy friend of mine once said "The road to Alaska is littered with the bodies of politicians who underestimated her!" What a perfectly fitting way for Rove and others to exact revenge on Palin personally and help the campaign at the same time!
Today Palin announced that her unwed 17 year old daughter is pregnant. She also announced that she has retained legal counsel as she is being investigated for the state trooper incident. As Huffington Post said "DRIP...DRIP....DRIP...
Bookmark this page and remember my words: Before the convention is over, she will resign for "the good of the party". I just suspect that SHE doesn't know it yet.
McCain will say to the PUMAs and the conservative base " Hey, we tried, but it didn't work out", then select Lieberman or Romney and the base will reluctantly rally around the decision to save the party. Women will be impressed that he "gave her a chance", and most importantly the news cycle will have not MENTIONED Obama or the economy for a week.
As the blogger says in the text below, ROVE HAS DONE THIS BEFORE. With Bernie Kerik for Homeland Security, then the less popular Chertoff, and who can forget Harriet Myers???
Again this idea did not come to me without the insight of this anonymous blogger: I wanted to give him credit for his work, but I have lost his name and the link. Greg Purcell
