First, why would they care if Palin destroyed the GOP?
Second, why would you tell your enemy they're making a bad choice?
Here's David Corn advising the GOP that Palin is bad news for them..........
As goes Palin, so goes the Grand Old Party? Not necessarily. But the party does run the risk of being defined -- in a guilt-by-association manner -- by Palin. This week, I participated on the roundtable for ABC News' "This Week." One of my fellow panelists, David Brooks, pronounced her a "joke." Presuming Brooks is right, I noted, the Republican Party has a problem: If GOPers take a "joke" seriously, doesn't it reflect poorly on the party? Republican leaders, who fear or covet her conservative supporters, have been publicly embracing her as a serious player. On "This Week," Rudy Giuliani called her "an exciting figure in the Republican Party." He added, "There's something extra-special that Sarah Palin has in terms of reaching out to people, and my party needs that kind of excitement." Last month Pawlenty recklessly followed Palin into the fray of that GOP civil war over a special congressional election in upstate New York.
Nice to see David Corn has so much compassion for the GOP.
I've got mixed emotions on Palin but here's one thing I do know. The country wouldn't be worse off today if she had the one's job.
