Tea Party Activists Plan To Recruit Sarah Palin To Primary Arizona Sen. John McCain - New York Times

The New York Times is reporting today that "two prominent conservative activists... said leading Tea Party figures planned to reach out to Ms. Palin to see if she was interested in running against Mr. McCain."

Long-time U.S. Senator John McCain (R-AZ) is leaning towards running again in 2016 - if he does, it would appear to be largely to shut down his naysayers in the Republican party.

The article discusses how President Barack Obama's executive actions regarding immigration have ignited the Tea Party groups, and how McCain is their top target in the next election cycle.

Palin - former Governor of Alaska and McCain's vice-presidential running mate in 2008 - now lives (at least part time) in Scottsdale, and two of her daughters have gone to school here.

Even in Arizona, Ms. Palin wouldn't stand a chance in the 2016 primaries.

This is just an attempt to marginalize Palin for 2016. Although Palin & McCain have some serious ideological differences, there is zero chance that Palin would betray her 2008 running mate.

Whoever is spreading this agit-prop is attempting to damage both Palin & McCain

Dante Alighieri said there are nine levels of hell with the lowest level reserved for those who turn against their country and countrymen. So, why not start with the man who even the devil will admit is his equal

After re-reading the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, and the biographies of John Adams, Thomas Jefferson and George Washington, Barack Obama was so despondent over the realization that he bastardized the Constitution..
