Palin endorses Prosser in Wisconsin supreme court race

posted at 5:24 pm on April 1, 2011 by Allahpundit

Good stuff. Normally I’d wonder about her jumping into a campaign in what’s basically a blue state (last November’s red wave notwithstanding), as the Palin-hate it’ll inspire on the left will only motivate them to turn out too. But Wisconsin liberals are already highly motivated; that’s the whole problem right now with Tuesday’s vote looming. They’ve been grooving on rage juice ever since the collective bargaining law passed — in all sorts of funny little ways — to the point where Prosser and Kloppenburg are basically even in the polls. Whether conservatives are feeling fat and contented that the CB law passed or merely in denial about the consequences of the supreme court’s majority flipping, I don’t know, but they desperately need a jolt of energy before Tuesday’s election — and no one’s more jolt-astic than Palin. I hope she’s prepared to re-issue this endorsement in a more visible forum than Twitter before the polls open, and ideally in more urgent terms. Cliched though it may be, turnout really will be the key here. Just like it’ll be key in the recall elections against Republican senators, one of which has already been triggered by Democrats collecting the necessary number of signatures to trigger it.

To show you how intense this campaign has become, a pair of ads via Politico and Big Government, respectively. On the second one, remember — one of the left’s lines of attack against Prosser is that, as a prosecutor, he was … soft on pedophiles. How do you rebut a charge like that? Watch and see. Like I said: Intense.

If Wisconsin succumbs to liberal activists judges and public unions, people may vote with their feet.

If Prosser loses, it is obvious that Palin is unelectable. /s

Why is it that Palin always seems to be first out the gate when issues with national ramifications make headlines?

Why can’t your boy Romney do ramp the turnout?

So Palin can neutralize left mobilizing even in the bluest of states by ramping up conservative turnout but somehow she has to be kept off a national ticket because she’s unelectable? Or are you saying that you know fully well what she can do the turnout but you will keep her off the ticket anyway for your favorite boy RINO but demand that she ramp up the turnout again once your dullard is nominated? You want to use her for your pet causes but she shouldn’t have any seat at the table. Nice.

promachus on April 1, 2011 at 5:41 PM

The dirty little secret is that the national GOP is only interested in winning back the Senate in 2012 – using the “right” candidates, of course! They are not so interested in maintaining the gains made in States in 2010 nor even capturing the Presidency.

They only need their committee chairmanships back!!

Find a recent Palin favorability poll in Wisconsin and we can discuss that. But the PPP poll is the only one I found. It’s one thing to attack an outlier from a partisan pollster but you don’t have any data at all to refute it.

I don’t buy the argument that conservatives are not motivated. This is a pretty contentious issue, and historically Democrats have been the party with the turnout issues.

Depends on what turnout in these things usually is. I have no idea, in a general large election Palin’s endorsement in a state where she has 32% favorability would be problematic at best. This, however, isn’t such an election I wouldn’t think. If turnout is more like 20%, half them could easily be union members and maybe 15-20% would be Palin fans. If exciting them is what it takes to get them up to 1/3 of the total, that could make all the difference.

A lot of conservatives had no idea this race was going on, and still have no idea the recall campaign is underway.

It is in the nature of the Bushtard GOP to sit on its butt while it gets the sh*t kicked out of it by the Alinskyites in off year contests.

Of course, but what is the source of that extra turnout? I think 3 things can be safely said:

1: Liberals who might be hyped to take down the Palin choice are already hyped so it’s a wash there.

2: Moderates who might be turned off by a Palin endorsement aren’t going to be turning out in droves so it’s a small net loss there.

3: Conservatives who need energizing and who will be with a Palin endorsement will be more excited now so it’s some unknown gain there.

Net result, anywhere from a wash to to a gain of some size.

Sarah Palin said she was going to do all she could to save the America most of us know and love… She knew that it would come at a price so she said, ” if I die politically , I die” so I, and millions of others, will do everything in our power to make sure that doesn’t happen. Palin is a person of faith, strength and conviction. So she fearlessly goes out and tries to make a difference for good knowing The Hatefilled Left will attack her that much more! God bless her.

My best suggestion is to donate to Wisconsin Club for Growth. Due to ridiculously-low fundraising limits placed on the candidates ($300,000 for a statewide election), they cannot raise any more money.

As for the turnout, let me put it this way:

– There is pretty much nothing that can be done to further the lefty turnout. They have a chance to flip the Court for at least the next 4 years until one of their number is up for re-election (and since they plan on tossing Justice Gabelman as soon as they get the 4-3 majority, 5 years), stop everything that Walker and the Republican Legislature will attempt to do. Further their two biggest bases for support (Milwaukee County and Madison) have high-profile elections; a honest-to-goodness Kossack has dumped over $1 million into the county exec’s race (Walker’s old seat) to outspend his barely-right-of-center opponent 3-1 for a 1-year job, and an old war protester is going for his third separate run as Madison’s mayor against an equally-liberal (but quieter) incumbent.

– There is no real down-ticket draw in heavily-Repubilcan counties (at least those surrounding Milwaukee). The closest are a chance to remove a Doyle-appointed judge in Waukesha County and the former Treasury Secretary running for Outagamie County (Appleton area) Executive.

In short, we need every bit of wakeup juice we can get.

The only person from the right who is unelectable is Ron Paul.

Bill Clinton was completely unelectable in February 1992, less than eight months from Election Day.

Don’t drink the kool-aid. Vote your conscience.

Buying into the media’s koolaid that having a Palin endorsement helps the other side win? Oh right, I forgot.
YOU are part of the media.

Tell that to the almost 70% of “winners” backed by Palin
in the 2010 election.

I think it is great that she came out and endorsed a judge.
Voters pretty much don’t pay attention to who the judges
are – and it needs to change.

LOL Proud RINO. That is a PPP poll. Was the poll from SEIU not available today?

angryed on April 1, 2011 at 6:54 PM

Which stand for Piss-Poor Polling of course.

slickwillie2001 on April 1, 2011 at 8:34 PM

Sigh. The point isn’t who she would endorse, the point is that she’s prominent enough to get the attention of conservatives who might otherwise ignore this race. We need turnout. She can help generate it.

Allahpundit on April 1, 2011 at 5:31 PM
Why can’t your boy Romney do ramp the turnout?

So Palin can neutralize left mobilizing even in the bluest of states by ramping up conservative turnout but somehow she has to be kept off a national ticket because she’s unelectable? Or are you saying that you know fully well what she can do the turnout but you will keep her off the ticket anyway for your favorite boy RINO but demand that she ramp up the turnout again once your dullard is nominated? You want to use her for your pet causes but she shouldn’t have any seat at the table. Nice

Awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Amjean on April 1, 2011 at 8:37 PM

Why is it that Palin always seems to be first out the gate when issues with national ramifications make headlines?

Mord on April 1, 2011 at 5:27 PM

that is what being a leader means…

BTW, I don’t think endorsements help or hurt much regardless of who makes them, but you’re fooling yourself if you think Palin endorsing anything in Wisconsin is going to help their cause.

Proud Rino on April 1, 2011 at 5:45 PM

hmm might want to talk to walker about that. He wa s begging for her endorsement in 2010

oh yeah and have a talk with Obey and Sean Duffy on what a palin endorsement can do in WIS

It is in the nature of the Bushtard GOP to sit on its butt while it gets the sh*t kicked out of it by the Alinskyites…

Palin, I see, gets this. Too bad the Bushtards don’t.

victor82 on April 1, 2011 at 6:11 PM

No they don’t sit on their butts, they give standing ovations to Anthony Weiner’s stand-up routines while hitting his PayPal button so he can go on tour and hypnotize more sheeple into the blissful complacency from whence our total emasculation springs.

Geochelone on April 1, 2011 at 9:50 PM

SO, who did Mittens endorse?

Khun Joe on April 1, 2011 at 9:52 PM

Response:

Palin is positioning herself with every move and endorsement. -which is a bad thing because the more traction she gains the more likely the GOP will be defeated again.

and to whomever said I was in the wrong place with my opinion: my loyalty lies with what’s best for the nation; not with any particular party.
