Over the holiday weekend, I wrote two “what are we supposed to be afraid of!?” re: Sarah Palin’s kinda sorta warnings to the media and the White House, here and here, that if they don’t stop…something, she’ll do…something.
Via Political Wire, now Politico has published a piece written by Joe Scarborough and titled, “Joe Scarborough tells GOP to man up and attack Sarah Palin.” In pertinent part:
If Republicans want to embrace Palin as a cultural icon whose anti-intellectualism fulfills a base political need, then have at it. I suppose it’s cheaper than therapy.
But if the party of Ronald Reagan, Paul Ryan and Marco Rubio wants to return to the White House anytime soon, it’s time that Republican leaders started standing up and speaking the truth to Palin.
Read the whole thing.
Seriously. We’re talking about people who pretend to want to vie for being leader of the free world. Fear is something that protects us – but as Scarborough echoes: what exactly are they afraid of?
