The decrease could be attributable to a sense that the senator, while popular among conservative activists, has yet to be vetted or tested nationally. Those fears are particularly acute among GOP officials after the selection of Sarah Palin as John McCain’s running mate four years ago, a decision that ultimately politically backfired on the Republican presidential nominee.
Oh it did, did it? “Backfired?”
Here’s what Palin’s nomination actually did do in the Imperial Household (and among just about every single other conservative who ended up reluctantly pulling for McStain): It kept us from staying at home grilling hamburgers on election day. If McStain and some other Establishment RINO fucknozzle statist cum-dumpster had been all there was on that ticket, that’s exactly what we’d have been doing.
So take your Narrative™ and shove it right up your Khyber Pass, then rotate for a while.
But not to worry. It looks like the RINO Establishment has found just the candidate to shore up Mittens ObamneyCare’s ticket by firing up the base.
*drumroll* Rob Portman.
We’ll give you His Majesty’s opinion on that momentarily but, in all fairness, we should probably Google a bit on him first to find out who in the name of Cthulhu’s hairy back he is.
We can feel the enthusiasm bubbling already.
This nation is fucked.
