An Early Christmas

And I'm not even Christian:

Sarah Palin is going back on the trail!

Palin will be criss-crossing Georgia this Monday on behalf of GOP Sen. Saxby Chambliss, in the final day of campaigning for the very unpredictable Senate runoff, the Chambliss campaign just announced.

Even though the national public's perception of Palin bottomed-out by election day, let's assume for the sake of argument that the Chambliss campaign thinks her presence is useful for turnout of their base in the upcoming runoff.

The real question is what she'll say. Palin's hardly avoided the spotlight since the election, doing interviews with Larry King, Matt Lauer, and even some oddly personal in-home time with Greta Van Susteren up in Alaska. But she's got to know that any future in the Republican party depends on her playing the good soldier, right?

The GOP better hope so. She'll be doing four rallies with Chambliss in one day.

Where is Obama?

He can swoop in there for a morning rally?   Get the base in Atlanta all fired up?

Obama can't afford to lose to Palin now

And in Georgia, he probably would.

Palin will backfire

She'll put the national GOP on the ballot (instead of keeping in local), and independents who didn't like her much during the presidential election will have additional motivation to turn out.

This is good for our side.

Re: Palin will backfire

Yes, I think she is a better motivator for Dems than Obama.

Obama is super busy now, I think it is appropriate for him to focus on his economic plan and putting together his team. He did ads for Martin and that is enough.

Palin will fire up the base

Which is all you need to do to win a special election.   I don't see Dems heading out to vote to spite the appearance by Palin, but I could see thousands of Reps getting fired up by her appearance and then heading to the polls.

Even more good news

Rumor has it that Ann Coulter suffered an accident and needs to get her jaw wired shut.

Now, I'm no proponent of injury to anyone, but there are few people that deserve to get their jaws wired shut more than Ann "Jews need to be perfected" Coulter.

Re: An Early Christmas

the only thing you can be sure about when it comes to palin is that anything and everything she does is for her own ambition.

viewed that way you will always be able to understand her motives.

Re: An Early Christmas

early voting points to a lack of african americans voting, esp compared with the GE.

Re: An Early Christmas
After a lot of whites worked hard for Obama's election, that is a shame that blacks don't have a longer view of the importance of that and other elections. It was very disgusting to read that 70% of black women voters in California voted to repeal the gay marriage. Pretty amazing that a group of people who are so narrowly focused on their own civil rights would deny those civil rights to others...
My personal experience from working a voting location was that many black voters came to vote on election day only for the President. They didn't seem to care that Obama's success was also dependent on the "down ballot races" and voting for US Senators, etc. Very strange paradox....
