Palin Withdrawal from Race Predicted

mccain/cheneyMy predictions:
The Republicans are floating the idea of Palin bowing out, which she'll do before the VP debate. Her reason will be to care for her infant child. The Republicans will say she was hounded out of the race by leftist elites, which will inflame the base. "Christian persecution!!!!!"

For the "sake of continuity during these perilous (thanks for helping, john) times," or some horseshit like that, Cheney will take Palin's place as McCain's VP. Ehh..., maybe Lieberman.

Palin has served her purpose and will now disappear. She proved the Republicans are feminists and made McCain look lifelike.

The elitist wing of the conservative movement has always been wary of us libertarians coming into the GOP. Sarah Palin is one of the top elected libertarian Republicans in the country, (along with Idaho's Gov. Butch Otter, and Cong. Jeff Flake of AZ).

Of course, she's going to make some conservatives nervous.

They are wary of her libertarian cultural views. This is the woman, after all, who famously fought back against social conservatives in Wasilla who wanted to run all of the bars and taverns out of town.

They even started a whisper campaign in Alaska during the 2006 primaries that Sarah wasn't really a Republican, but rather a "closet libertarian." She had attended a couple local Libertarian Party meetings seeking their support.

But what she loses from the social conservatives, she gains 10 times over in libertarian votes.

Figure, Libertarian Bob Barr was polling 6% nationwide in mid-summer. As high as 10% in New Hampshire. And post-Palin he's now down to 1%.

Ever since Goldwater the eastern establishment Republicans have distrusted Western cowboy individualists in the GOP.

With Sarah Palin, the libertarian wing of the GOP has finally arrived. Of course, that's going to make some other Republicans nervous.

Get over it Conservatives, THE LIBERTARIANS HAVE ARRIVED!!

As a libertarian (note the lower case "l", Sarah Palin scares the fuck out of me.

Why would a libertarian be against abortion, with the weight of the state lined up against the rights of a woman?

Why would a libertarian be against gay rights?

Libertarians sanction state intrusion into people's bedrooms to see with whom they're having sex and if and when there is a conception? What's libertarian about that?
