this endorsement for Karen Handel who is running for governor in Georgia.
I’m proud to lend my support to a great commonsense conservative woman running for Governor this year in the Peach State. My recent visit back to this beautiful area allowed me to meet more of the patriotic Americans who call Georgia home and who are ready for a reformer to help strengthen their families, businesses, state and, ultimately, our United States. Karen Handel is that reformer. Throughout her career in public office – from serving as Chairman of the Fulton County Board of Commissioners to Georgia’s Secretary of State – Karen has brought the common sense fiscal discipline and positive change in government that is needed now more than ever. Though considered an underdog candidate (more power to her!), this pro-life, pro-Constitutionalist with a can-do attitude and a record of fighting for ethics in government is ready to serve in the Governor’s Office. She’ll balance budgets and help spur Georgia’s economy. Her plan will contribute to America’s roadmap which can benefit all of us.
Blah, blah, blah, conservative values, blah, blah, common sense, pro-Constitutionalist, blah, blah, pro-life.....wait just a minute..hmm....not so fast there Palin facebook writer!
From CNN Politics:
Less than a day after the former Alaska governor announced she is backing former Georgia Secretary of State Karen Handel, a GOP opponent is out with a scathing campaign commercial that suggests Handel once supported abortion rights.
"She gave almost a half-million dollars to an abortion provider. And supported tax-payer benefits for gay couples. Sounds like a liberal Democrat. It's the Karen Handel you didn't know," says a new ad from John Oxendine, the state insurance commissioner who is considered the frontrunner in the race.
Specifically, the ad says that when Handel was chairman of the Fulton County Commission in 2005 she voted in favor of a $425,568 allocation for Planned Parenthood.
What? She gave money to Planned Parenthood AND likes the gays? Wow, she almost sounds....reasonable. She also supports the idea of women having access to abortions in the case of incest, rape, or if the pregnancy presents a threat to the life of the mother. No way can Palin endorse somebody who is not a bat shit crazy wing nut!
But it is too late. She done did it! And as we all know, Sarah Palin NEVER admits a mistake.
