Music Makes The People Come Together

The G.O.P. brainstorming has begun: Palin/DuJan '16:
A Palin "war against women"? Hah! Not only is she a woman, she's got a single-mom daughter, Bristol, to help with the swelling single-mom demographic. On social issues, Palin, unlike Romney, has been absolutely consistent. And let's remember that most Americans, whatever their view of choice, disapprove of most abortions.
Gay marriage? Palin opposes it. But she is also a strong advocate of states' rights, and I'm betting she'd be fine with letting states and their voters grapple with the issue on their own. Remember that all of America didn't swing toward approval of gay marriage on Nov. 6. Three reliably blue states and their voters did. If she were smart, Palin would recruit a member of her impressive gay fanboy base — yes, she has one — to help run her campaign. I nominate Kevin DuJan of the widely read gay conservative blog HillBuzz, a Palin stalwart since 2008.
The author, Charlotte Allen, is serious.  And she's actually seconding the nomination, since DuJan himself  nominated himself to run Palin's 2012 campaign.  (For the record, the other half of Palin's gay fanboy base is Gay Patriot.)

If only McCain/Palin had tapped a gay blogger read by literally hundreds of heterosexual PUMAs, McCain would be President right now, and through mid-January.

Allen anticipates objections:  
There are also the snooty East Coast Republican intellectual types, such as Peggy Noonan, who look down their noses at a woman who doesn't shop at Neiman Marcus and didn't attend an Ivy League university. But Peggy made a fool of herself calling the election for Romney on Nov. 5. Who's going to care what she and her ilk have to say next time?
I don't know where Nooners shops, but she certainly didn't attend an Ivy.  And you know what other fool  called the election for Romney on November 5?  That's right

Fucking idiots.

We've had some rough times in the aftermath of the economic crash, and I think we're all entitled to some real entertainment, so, yes, let's see a Palin run for the Presidency.

She's just plain stoopid and not a little crazy, so she's sure to invigorate a substantial part of the Repug base, which just loves them some crazy and stupid, which is why they're already creaming their jeans at the prospect of Reagan in a skirt.

Hell, we deserve some fun.

"snooty East Coast Republican intellectual types, such as Peggy Noonan"

snooty Peggy Noonan - yes

East Coast Peggy Noonan - obviously

Republican Peggy Noonan - no shit Sherlock

intellectual Peggy Noonan - uh, What? Must be some other Peggy Noonan. Not the one I sees on the TVs

The most surprising thing about this piece is that the author thinks Sarah Palin doesn't shop at Neiman Marcus. That must have been a hell of a post-election bender she had in 2008 if she doesn't remember any of that kerfuffle.

Yes. That "swelling single-mom demographic" Republicans love so much.

Dujan's post is a classic. I was so tempted to comment "How's that workin' out for ya?"
