As I have said many times before in this blog, the Republican Party and the majority of Republican commentators wish that Sarah Palin would just go away. They don't like her, period. They share the same sensibility about her as do their Democratic opponents. They think she is unprepared, an intellectual lightweight, a prima donna, and unable to do anything but get 35% of the vote. They view her as a disaster for the party.
So, when Palin endorsed New York State Conservative Party candidate Doug Hoffman, some of the usual suspects came out against her action. I think they had their feelings hurt when she stated that "and best of all, Hoffman is not a member of a political machine"--an obvious dig at the Republican Party. Doesn't anyone remember anything? Palin herself was not a member of a political machine. She won Alaska by beating the corrupt self dealing Republican political machine. Conservative Party candidate Doug Hoffman is in a close race in New York District 23 in the Adirondocks region (where coincidently I am writing this from in Lake Placid, New York, on a long weekend vacation) against liberal Republican Dede Scozzafava and Democrat Bill Owens.
