Here she is, Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, in Georgia yesterday rallying the Republican base in getting out the vote in the senate run off between Republican senator Saxby Chambliss and Democrat challenger Jim Martin.
My question is this.
Will Gov. Palin get ANY credit when Sen. Chambliss wins reelection?
I think that I know the answer.
But, here are the facts.
Gov. Palin drew about 3,000 people at a rally in a senate runoff in the middle of the Christmas season. There are many who have been down to Georgia to help Sen. Chambliss win reelection, but none resonate as does Gov. Palin.
And, the timing of having her at the end of another endless campaign in brilliant.
But, do not expect that the DDBMSOWM will credit Gov. Palin with rallying the Republican base behind Sen. Chambliss. No, they will find a way to diminish her. But, Republicans and conservatives that are paying attention know that she is an asset, not a liability.
The real question should be where is President-elect Obama?
