THAT'S AN EXQUISITE TURN OF PHRASE...:
Palin Stands By Fiorina Endorsement Amid Backlash From Supporters (FOXNews.com, 5/08/10)
Despite facing fierce criticism from her supporters, Tea Party hero Sarah Palin isn't backing down from her endorsement of former Hewlett-Packard executive Carly Fiorina in the GOP's U.S. Senate primary in California.
Palin's endorsement surprised and outraged many of her supporters who expected her to pick Tea Party favorite Chuck DeVore.
"The governor is never one to go with the flow," Jason Recher, a spokesman for Palin said, explaining that the former Alaska governor respects the differing opinions but is sticking by her choice. "She is a very independent person, and she shakes things up in establishments -- including grassroots establishments -- all the time."
...but one waits for the grassroots establishmentarians to either actually refer to her as a Left Deviationist or say this endorsement was just a chick thing. Posted by Orrin Judd at May 9, 2010 7:26 AM
