Sarah Palin's "Blue Blood" Hypocrisy
"I sat next to her once, thought she was beautiful, and I think she's very happy in Alaska," Bush said, "and I hope she'll stay there."
Palin's response: "I think the majority of Americans don't want to put up with the blue bloods -- and I say it with all due respect because I love the Bushes -- but the blue bloods who want to pick and choose their winners instead of allowing competition to pick and choose the winners."
Why is this interesting?
Sarah Palin backed right-wing candidate Joe Miller for Alaska's senate race over Republican incumbent Lisa Murkowski. While Miller beat out Murkowski in the Republican primaries, Murkowski was victorious as a write-in candidate, beating Miller and the Democratic contender in the general election. Miller, being the sore loser that he is, filed a lawsuit with federal courts, and then state courts, in order to block Murkowski from being validated so he can contest the election results and try to dig up some more votes for him (as well as throw out more Murkowski votes). Palin through her political action committee, SarahPAC, contributed money for Miller's recount battle.
It would appear as if Palin is the one who wants to pick and choose the winner instead of allowing competition to take place...
