Who will Palin's future "mama grizzlies" be?

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin told a breakfast of the Susan B. Anthony List last Friday that 2010 will be "remembered as the year that common-sense conservative women get things done for our country."

And, as the Fix noted in his newspaper column this morning, Palin has gone on something of a streak of endorsing female candidates over the past 10 days.

In that short time period, Palin has endorsed New Mexico gubernatorial candidate Susana Martinez, South Carolina gubernatorial candidate Nikki Haley and California Senate candidate Carly Fiorina -- three women who are running races against one (or several) men.

On the eve of this year's Super Primary Tuesday, we thought it'd be worth taking a look at other candidates that Palin may endorse as this year's primary season kicks into high gear.

A Palin aide told The Fix -- not terribly helpfully -- that Palin has no "list" or set group of candidates that she plans to endorse. But the aide added: "I'm sure there'll be more. I don't know when, where and who."

Among Senate candidates who could be among Palin's future "mama grizzlies", former Colorado Lt. Governor Jane Norton seems to fit the bill.

Norton, who faces an August 10 primary, has been endorsed by the Susan B. Anthony List. Palin mentioned her by name at last week's breakfast, but still hasn't made a formal endorsement. One factor that might complicate a potential endorsement is that Norton's main rival for the GOP nod, Weld County District Attorney Ken Buck, is a favorite of local tea party groups -- a constituency that Palin has been vocal in supporting -- and has won the support of South Carolina Sen. Jim DeMint.

Norton spokesperson Cinamon Watson said she had "hope" that Palin might back her candidate. "She's such a strong conservative, and we'd love her support."

(Palin is slated to appear in Colorado this Saturday at an event with talk radio hosts Hugh Hewitt and Dennis Prager on the same day that Republicans hold their state assembly.)

Former Nevada Republican Party chair Sue Lowden also might be on Palin's watch list.

Lowden has been leading the GOP field ahead of the June 8 primary to face Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and has been endorsed by the Susan B. Anthony List. But former assemblywoman Sharron Angle, who's also running for the Republican nod, has seen a recent surge of support in the polls and is the preferred candidate of the tea party movement -- facts that could put Palin in a tough political place in the contest.

A Lowden campaign official noted that Lowden campaigned for Palin at an event in Carson City in 2008, and that Palin "does recognize Sue as a pro-life candidate that will bring conservative values to Washington." But the official added: "Whether or not she's going to endorse Sue, I don't know."

Another possibility is in New Hampshire where former state Attorney General Kelly Ayotte (R) is leading the Republican field for the Senate seat being vacated by Sen. Judd Gregg (R).

Ayotte faces a three-way September primary fight against businessman Bill Binnie, who has spent heavily from his own pocket on the campaign, and conservative Ovide Lamontagne who was the party's gubernatorial nominee in 1996.

Other Palin-endorsement possibilities include three candidates for governor: former Georgia Secretary of State Karen Handel, Oklahoma Rep. Mary Fallin and Wyoming state Auditor Rita Meyer . All three are facing male-dominated primary fields; Handel and Fallin face July primaries, while Meyer faces one in August).

One notable instance in which Palin opted against a Republican woman was the March gubernatorial primary in Texas, where Palin backed Gov. Rick Perry (R) for re-election over Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison (R). In her speech backing Perry, Palin didn't mention criticize Hutchison by name, but trained her fire on the broader DC establishment.

Sarah Palin's secret speaking fee revealed: "Only" $ 35,000 charged for Republican fundraiser in Eugene, Oregon
http://palingates.blogspot.com/2010/05/sarah-palins-secret-speaking-fee.html

Only $ 35,000? How generous of her! How will this go down with all the other organizations which have paid much more for Sarah's appearance?

"Bristol Palin is hitting the speakers' circuit and will command between $15,000 and $30,000 for each appearance, Palin family attorney Thomas Van Flein said Monday. Van Flein confirmed a report by celebrity news website RadarOnline that the daughter of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin has signed with Single Source Speakers. He added her exact fees will depend on factors such as which group she's addressing and what she must to do prepare.
Bristol Palin, 19, is listed on the speaking group's website as available for conferences, fundraisers, special events and holidays, as well as women's, youth, abstinence and "pro-life" programs."

Yeah, here's a lot of credibility for you . . .
Bristol Palin is going to do speeches about abstinence . . . while she holds up her baby as 'proof' of her own pledge of abstinence until marriage.


Bristol is following in her Mommy's footsteps of becoming another greedy, unintelligent woman who can't live up to what she's telling us we need to do and be as women. Who's taking care of your baby, Bristol?

Culturally people from National Origins countries (England, Ireland, France, Germany, Belgium, etc.) tend to assimilate faster and contribute more. I'm sure in 2 or 3 generations the Mexicans will be contributing just as much as the Italians and Irish are today but I'm not sure if we can wait that long. In addition, many people from Asia, Africa, and Latin America have limited ability to contribute to Western Culture. They may be "hard workers" and have "interesting food" but they won't be able to contribute to the intellectual vibrancy of our society. The educated Hindus and Chines think our country is simply social-darwinism and the uneducated latin Americans think it's all about hard work. But, neither contributes (except in the most simplistic ways) to the cultural and intellectual fabric of our society. That's why the Tea Party is so important. They are a reminder to our politicians that Americans are waking up to the negative impact of NAFTA, CAFTA, the Iraq War, the Community Reinvestment Act, the Voting Rights Act, and the 1965 Immigration Act.

Frontiers woman???? Haven't been to Wasilla have you? It is a giant strip mall:

"Some towns have character. Some have a sense of place.And then there is Wasilla, which greets visitors with Wal-mart, Target, Lowe's, Kentucky Fried Chicken, Carl's Jr., McDonald's and Taco Bell.

They paved paradise, and all they've got to show for it is chalupas and discount tube socks.

I thought I'd found the town center when I came upon a row of frontier-style buildings, but it was just a Knott's Berry Farm-style facade housing a Señor Taco, among other establishments. Up at the next intersection of strip malls, I found a Chimo Guns shop across from a store offering 15% off of home-schooling supplies.

Sure, every town in the United States has its big-box stores, strip malls, fast-food joints and sprawling churches. But Wasilla seems to have little else.

I pulled into a strip mall parking lot with a giant "Congratulations Sarah" sign on a storefront and asked a woman for help.

"Ma'am, can you direct me to Main Street?"
"This is Main Street," she said.
"Well, where is the center of town?"
"This is downtown Wasilla," she said.

I expected better, Sarah. I really did."

When the primary votes are counted and Nikki Haley, Carly Fiorina, and Susana Martinez are assessing what went wrong in their campaigns, I have three words for them: Sarah Palin Endorsement.

Set aside your opinion of Ms. Palin's politics for a moment. Consider only the fact that in 2008, Ms. Palin decided that her political and financial aspirations were more important than her duties as a first term governor of Alaska when she chose to accept the Republican VP nomination. In 2009, she demonstrated this again by abandoning her position in mid term.

She is the poster child for putting self interest above gubernatorial responsibility. Accepting her endorsement for the position of governor would be like using Bernie Madoff as a reference when applying for a job as a stock broker.

Tony Lee of the Atlantic said that Palin's performance at Friday's breakfast revealed "the makings of a potentially transcendent and transformational figure not only for the conservative movement but for American politics." Palin personifies the theme of the "frontier woman," Lee wrote.

What Palin is creating is a new feminism, not tied to the current Politbureau that runs leftist women's organizations. You know the type, a whiney, pathetic
"victimhood" that shrieked about the Tebow ad.

Palin is offering young women an escape from that crap. In fact, she is a living example of the "tough, gun-toting, pioneer feminism" that she preaches. And I think a lot of young women are going to find Ms. Palin's brand of feminism more appealing then the "East coast faculty lounge" variety.

Father Charles Coughlin ("Jewish persecution only followed after Christians first were persecuted.")had alot of rabid followers in the 1930's too until he didn't.

"At its peak in the early 1930s, Coughlin's radio show was phenomenally popular. His office received up to 80,000 letters per week from listeners, and his listening audience was estimated to rise at times to as much as a third of the nation. Coughlin is often credited as one of the major demagogues of the 20th century for being able to influence politics through broadcasting, without actually holding a political office himself." wikipedia

Stopping deficit spending before the US goes bankrupt (I believe she calls this "generational theft")

Enforcing the laws of the United States (I believe leftists call this "racist")

Stopping corruption at all levels of government (didn't the Obamao just give BP a "safety award"?)

Promoting the election of "strong, conservative women" (leftists don't believe that these exist)

Besides, if Sarah Palin is "unhinged and irresponsible", what are you worried about?

Here's what REAL patriots should be upset about:

HOMELAND CELLULAR TORTURE TOWERS ENSLAVE AMERICANS IN MICROWAVE GHETTO: VETERAN JOURNO

• Multi-agency Bush-Cheney atrocities -- silent electromagnetic torture and impairment of "dissidents" and "undesirables" -- continue under Obama.

When will President Obama stop appeasing a rogue bureaucracy -- and roll some heads?

Thanks for spamming the board with off-topic hysterical rantings. You know who you are.

And thanks CC for permitting it, I've been going from article to article because every blog has been polluted by, well, you know who I'm talking about.

So, I guess i'll have to find a news site with some sane, constructive dialogue instead of this sewer.

So does this mean the first "dude" is now emasculated and relagated to the domestic duties? Newsflash for the reality challenged palin -- the grizzlies have spoken, 2008 when they opted to keep her as far away from DC as possible.

Well, fake Jake, WOULD you have voted for Obama if he was white, with the same resume ???

Or is his main appeal that he is black?

Time for honesty.

And we can note that in endorsing Fiorina Palin has autmatically compouned her losing streak that started with Greenteeth Hoffman. Fiorina ran HP into the ground and has a rich store of quotable idiocies such as her disdain for American employment.

Actually, Jennifurrrrr Aniston would probably be profound in comparison

Are we seeking new depths of triviality here? Palin comes up with some idiot phrase to rile up the rubes and we have an entire COLUMN on it?

Cue zouk ...

Remind me again why it is that people continue to pay attention to this head case. One might as well be following the political positions of Jennifer Aniston. Give us a break. Politics has become so much about celebrity that it is impossible to even take it seriously any more. Tom Jefferson would be appalled.

So, nothing new to report about the Republican Rising! other than that the baggers keep tearing up Republican tickets...I know, why not speculate possible Sarah Palin endorsements? Surely a topic of serious gravitas, whom will Sarah allow up on her wall?

Loud and Dumb, you should try taking a little more or a little less, Ace.

We now have a Muslim Miss USA and a president who was raised a Muslim.

37th: Did you get a bad supply of crack today?

It's a pretty stupid question, actually.

We now have a Muslim Miss USA and a president who was raised a Muslim.

Are we doing this FOR POLTICAL CORRECTNESS or because these people would placed in these positions if they were perfectly WHITE?

It is a fair question.

by the way, if you thought that electing Obama would end the terrorist incidents, because it would prove how good a country we are, THAT DIDN'T WORK, YOU IDIOT.

Why don't you check the palm of her left hand?, you might find the list there.
