Divided And Conquered

With all the talk about the 3 Dems that are retiring this year, the conservatives are continuing to ignore the fact that their chances of taking both houses of Congress are virtually non-existent and that with each day, they are ensuring that a Democrat ( Obama or not ) will be elected President in 2012.

Recent polling of GOP "insiders" suggests that Palin alone is doing just as much damage to conservatives chances of regaining the Presidency in 2012 as the tea-baggers have been doing.

A poll of GOP insiders suggests that ex-AK Gov. Sarah Palin (R) has little support among the party's professional class -- and maybe that's just how she wants it.

In a survey of 109 party leaders, political professionals and pundits, Palin finished 5th on the list of candidates most likely to win the party's '12 WH nomination. Ex-MA Gov. Mitt Romney (R) was the overwhelming choice of the

Voters were asked to rank 5 candidates in the order of likeliness to capture the GOP nod. The results:

Likely To Win WH'12 Nomination (First place votes)

Ex-MA Gov. Mitt Romney 81 points (62%)
MN Gov. Tim Pawlenty 46 (9%)
Sen. John Thune 38 (12%)
MS Gov. Haley Barbour 28 (6%)
IN Gov. Mitch Daniels 25
Ex-AK Gov. Sarah Palin 25

Rounding out the top 10: Ex-House Speaker Newt Gingrich, ex-AR Gov. Mike Huckabee, ex-FL Gov. Jeb Bush, LA Gov. Bobby Jindal. Candidates other than Romney, Pawlenty, Thune and Barbour split the remaining 11% of first-place votes.

And the folks at Fox"Nation" are more than willing to defend Palin against the reality of what she and the tea-baggers have done. It's quite the sight to see so many on the fringe-right willing to slit their own throats in order to make a point.
