“If Sarah Palin seeks out a group of sophisticated policy advisers and spends time developing a series of fairly sophisticated positions,” Gingrich said during his 33rd visit to the Christian Science Monitor breakfast series, “she is very formidable.”
I’m not quite sure what sophisticated (even with the modifier “fairly) might mean here. Maybe it means she’ll be putting Prada on the RNC credit card instead of Saks this time around.
But Newt’s not alone in thinking that Sarah may be the future of the GOP (from Rasmussen):
the plurality of GOP voters (43%) say their party has been too moderate over the past eight years, and 55% think it should become more like Alaska Governor Sarah Palin in the future…
Bear in mind that Scott Rasmussen is conservative pollster who likely has a hard-on for Palin in various senses of that expression. And I’ve underestimated the craziness of the Republican party before.
But, seriously, they’re not really going to do this, are they?
