I watch this morning on Fox News’ “Fox and Friends” congratulating the newly re-elected Sen. Saxby Chambliss, R-Ga.
I just want to reiterate that the GOP still has star power. It is laughable to see Ludacris come down to support Chambliss' opponent Jim Martin. What the hell does Ludicris know about politics? I heard his rap song and nothing alludes to a political theme. It just demonstrates that the Democrats wanted to bring the black voters out and thought Ludicris could shore up the base. But alas, it was the most painful and embarrassing sight to see Martin and Ludicris hugging each other at the podium. It was kind of pitiful and probably why they lost.
It is a sign of good news when you have John McCain, Mike Huckabee, Mitt Romney, Rudy Giuliani, and Sarah Palin having the clout to diminish the star power of Obama, Bill Clinton, Gore, and Ludacris. I hope some of Chambliss past mistakes will soon change by understanding that the will of the people wants to come back to the Ronald Reagan's principle. That is Republicans standing for smaller government, fiscal responsibility, more individual rights and freedoms, and lower taxes. We’ve got to get back to those fundamentals.
I really like how Chambliss spoke highly about Palin role during this runoff election. Chambliss said, “You want to peak on the last day, and we had. But Sarah Palin came in on the last day and man, she was dynamite. We packed the houses everywhere we went. I cannot see it diminishing. I can’t overstate the impact she had down here. All these folks did a great job, they all allowed us to add momentum, but when she walks in a room, folks just explode. She’s a dynamic lady, a great administrator, and I think she’s got a great future in the Republican Party.”
I know there are a lot of people out there fearing that a Republican female candidate eyeing her ambitions to be President of the United States, but please get off that sexist bandwagon. Sarah Palin is here to stay. It seems that everybody is looking at Jindal to be the forefront GOP contender. To them, he may be the GOP’s darling, but Jindal needs to prove himself as governor. In contrast to Sarah Palin, she has been there and done that.
Whatever the case, this Senate win in Georgia may be a start of better things to come for Republicans.
