Lisa Murkowski is a moderate Republican squish in the mold of John McCain. Murkowski didn’t try to overturn Trump’s election as did McCain, but they were otherwise aligned. As such, Murkowski cannot be counted on to help appoint a Trump SCOTUS nominee.
Not reliably. And not without some prodding.
In a video posted to Instagram, Sarah Palin reminded us that she is ready to step up if needed in 2022 to put a strong Republican in the US Senate in Murkowski’ss place.
“So much hinges on the Supreme Court. You know the reason, you know why it’s so important, and that’s why you’re thinking you’re going to go rogue. You know, there’s a time and a place to go rogue. This isn’t the time, this isn’t the place. We sure hope you have it within you to do the right thing this time. So you should walk back,” …
“We’ll forgive you. Wait … we’ve done this how many times before, though? And we kept saying we’d forgive this? If you can’t do that, remember my house. I can see a lot of things from my house. … Lisa, I can see 2022 from my house,” Palin says.
The obvious reference is to the Saturday Night Live parody of Palin seeing Russia from her front porch. Funny, but it became gospel among dopey Dems that she actually said it. She obviously never did, nor did she forget the reference.
And while Palin has been a bit less active lately politically, she could easily pull in large sums of money to challenge the incumbent Republican, Murkowski. Hey, we’d donate to help her out.
I’d like her to challenge Murkowski regardless, but we’ll have to wait and see. Miss Lisa has already reframed her position from I will not consider a nominee this close to the election to I can’t make any decision until I know who the nominee is.
CNN claims that multiple sources in the GOP say it will be Amy Coney Barrett. She has been the agreed-upon front-runner, but what if that’s a decoy. The left will be ready for anyone, but this has to have them opening the stops on oppo. And then Trump names someone else? That would be funny as hell.
I still think it’s Barrett, but we will not know officially until 5 pm tomorrow. And then Ms. Murkowski can decide what she must do.
