Lloyd Marcus: The Lesson in the Betrayal of Sarah Palin

 


Sarah Palin is a “profile in courage” for her annunciation of conservative principles, writes grass roots activist Lloyd Marcus at American Thinker. The Tea Party troubador lambastes “those on our side” for betraying the former Alaska governor and GOP vice presidential candidate when they should have been celebrating her:

Rush Limbaugh on his radio show discussed an article which stated that there is no respected voice in the national arena articulating conservatism. Such an advocate for conservatism is crucial to reversing the direction of America as Obama drives us toward socialism while low-info voters gleefully sing Kumbaya in the backseat.

Well excuse me for pointing out the obvious, but we had an extraordinary advocate for conservatism, and look what happened to her. Judas on our side betrayed her — sold her reputation for 30 seconds of fame and favor with the media.

Even now, folks on our side are still beating up on Sarah Palin, saying Palin has lost her appeal — Palin is unelectable — Palin wasn’t smart enough — Palin wasn’t prepared, etc. So this is how we treat our heroes.

[…]

We conservatives act as if our representatives must be the reincarnation of Jesus Christ — perfect in every way. At a conservative’s slightest misstep, Republicans/conservatives trip over one another backing away from the individual in an effort to get out of the media’s and Democrats’ line of fire.

Clearly, advocates of conservatism are expected by both parties to walk on water.

Word on the political street is we need a respected advocate for conservatism to reach low-info voters. While I do believe that a new voice will emerge, I wonder who could be better than Sarah Palin?
