Say bye-bye to the Palinista vote

Mitt Romney Snags Coveted Lisa Murkowski Endorsement

With Mitt Romney plummeting in the polls, his campaign was under intense pressure to pad his grass roots street cred by adding to an already impressive string of endorsements from such high profile conservative stalwarts as David Brooks, Jimmy Carter, Al Gore, Meghan McCain, Alec Baldwin, and Kathleen Parker. Mission accomplished. This afternoon, with all the appropriate fanfare befitting such a momentous announcement, the Romney campaign disclosed that Lisa Murkowski, who ran against the Republican candidate for Senate in Alaska in 2010, is now officially a full-fledged Mitt-head:

Republican presidential contender Mitt Romney announced Friday that he has earned the endorsement of Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski, considered by many conservatives to be a RINO.

Loyal Palinistas know all about the bad blood between Sarah and Princess Lisa. There aren’t too many people on the planet whose endorsement would be more toxic to them.

But then again, loyal Palinistas weren’t likely to vote for Mitt anyway.

    wow, talk about shooting yourself in the foot. Mitt and his people look more and more like Obama and his.

      one more thing, these guys make me nervous. Obama might as well skate by to another undeserved victory.

    Cain announcement any second now for the past two hours. Not even a leak yet 😀

    Romney won’t get Cain supporters either.

    Where are the Mike Castle and DeDe Scozzafava endorsements?

    The thing that scares me is that Mitt is the poster boy for the crybaby wing of the GOP. These are the people who let Christine O’Donnell and Doug Hoffman lose because their anointed candidate didn’t win. I now suspect that’s how McCain/Palin lost and election that most indications said they could win. The crybaby wing says if Romney isn’t the nominee, Obama is the winner.

      Christine O’Donnell lost because she’s dumber than a box of rocks and stranger than cat shit. She’s never had a real job and lived on her campaign contributions. The GOP has every right to be very angry that her Tea Party-backed primary campaign may have cost them the Senate seat in Delaware.

    Pre-speeches have begun

  5. HELENK says:

    she made sure that Romney will not get Sarah to back him. Not only will she not campaign for him, probably not contribute to his campaign.

    The are scared to death of Sarah and anyone she would back,

    OT: Herman Cain announcement on CSPAN right now…

  7. 1539days says:

    Cain with his wife. Maybe he’s still in.

  8. DeniseVB says:

    crowd chanting Gloria! Gloria!

  9. DeniseVB says:

    Great speech. Hope he stays in.

  10. DeniseVB says:

    Plan B …. meh. Sounds like he’s becoming a lobbyist 😀

    I’m was a Clintonista and now I’m a Palinista. Romney never had my vote and the Murkowski endorsement really seals the deal, but then I look over at Newt and feel like throwing up, so these are just all choices from hell.

    I said I’d vote for a dead goat if it got Obama out of office and I still mean it. Mittens or Newt will be getting my dead goat vote. Sometimes I think it would be more appealing to vote for an actual dead goat, but I guess you have to do what you have to do. I’m still hanging on to Sarah’s words, the elections isn’t settled yet and we still have 31 days to go.

    PS: Crawdad, this was a hysterical post. I love the “high profile conservatives” list. LOL!

  13. HELENK says:

    Did it bother anyone else how fast Bachmann came out saying that Cain had called her?
    I would love to have a woman president, but I can not get any good feeling about her. You know that gut feeling that you can not really explain, that is what I have about her.
    I thought of her comment about moving trucks being at Cain’s headquarters and all the reporters running over there to find trucks unloading campaign material
