The Republican Party is totally broken and this could lead to a huge divide in the party that will be so much fun to watch. The stimulus bill is causing this divide. While congressional GOP is fighting it, the Republican governors are pushing for it. As matter of fact the governors pushing for it is like a list of who’s who for 2012:
The 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, planned to meet in Washington this weekend with Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky and other senators to press for her state’s share of the package.
Florida Gov. Charlie Crist worked the phones last week with members of his state’s congressional delegation, including House Republicans. Vermont Gov. Jim Douglas, the Republican vice chairman of the National Governors Association, planned to be in Washington on Monday to urge the Senate to approve the plan.
Now let’s stop and think about this. How will the right wing blogs respond to such news? They have been blasting any Republican that showed any sign of support for the bill in the Senate, and working nonstop for its failure. But wait! Their golden child is going against them – Sarah Palin. So will they go after Palin now?
And that brings us to something even more interesting. If the stimulus bill “goes against conservatism” so much, like Republicans are claiming, then how can Palin still be considered a conservative if she is lobbying for the passage? Wow do they have a mess to work out.
