    Palin backs Perry over Hutchison
    By Sean J. Miller - 02/08/10 11:13 AM ET
    Sarah Palin knocked Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison (R-Texas) as a Washington insider during a rally with Gov. Rick Perry (R) in Houston Sunday.

    "So on March 2 you have a clear choice," Palin said during her first campaign appearance of 2010. "I want to hear Texas, what's it gonna be: the way they operate in D.C. or the way y'all get things done in Texas?"

    Perry, already the state's longest-serving governor, is seeking a third term. He faces Hutchison in next month's GOP primary.

    Texans overwhelmingly chose the more conservative candidate between Rick Perry and Kay Bailey Hutchison. The mainstream media will attempt to display these results as simple "anti-Washington DC" sentiment, when in fact, it is far more a repudiation against Big Government liberalism. Hutchison was widely viewed as a John McCain style Republican - Perry the staunch anti-DC states-rights governor. The people spoke with a landslide primary victory for Perry.

    And Sarah Palin is among that handful of conservative political figures who appear to have the finger on the pulse of current American sentiment.

    All signs continue to point to a major reset election in 2010, and Palin will continue to play a significant role...

    Hutchison

    1. was the most conservative candidate in the race.

    2. didn't have much of a chance to begin with.

    Why Palin backed the moderate is anyone's guess. I suspect she learned her lesson after NY23.

    Carb, Medina was, but you're right in putting Hutchinson to the right of Perry.

    Palin's a phony, just like Huckleberry, Mittens, Rudy "9/11" JulieAnnie, and the crop of those pathetic losers.

    KB Hutchison was not the most conservative candidate - and in more recent months, sealed her fate when she did not join other Republicans in attempting to block the Senate healthcare vote. That act alone secured her the now much-despised RHINO status and Texans by and large wanted nothing to do with her DC political stylings and questionable conservative leanings of late.

    In almost any other election KB Hutchison would have proven a very formidable candidate. At this time though, the growing anti-Big Government, anti-Liberal sentiment is becoming so strong, she could not gain traction in this most recent contest.

    More is coming in November - the tide is rising fast and the Democrat Party better learn fast to swim in these waters or drown in the angry waters of voter discontent...

    Oh, and Perry has a 66% approval rating. Sitting governors with 66% approval ratings don't lose primaries.

    51% is not a landslide.

    In most southern states that is just enough to prevent a run off

    I would have voted Medina just because the other two have been around too long.

    As for the Palin factor... Well she was on the winning side. Is that because of her, or in spite of her, I don't know. There will be other elections this year. Lets see how it plays out over the next 8 months, whether she is a power or an Albatross.
    So far this year, Obama has been a definite albatross.
