Establishment Republicans rally today to debunk Sarah Palin much as
Letterman, Couric, Tina Fey and the vast info/entertainment culture did
at the beginning. It is a measure of her success and the fear Grizzly
Mama strikes in the heart of the timid. The Ted Cruz victory in the
Texas Senate race brings substantive political change and Sarah Palin is
behind the paradigm shift. It is, as The Washington Post called it, “a
victory for the Tea Party.” Today, “the establishment” pushes further
away from the main pulse of America and Sarah Palin holds the pulse.
The Cruz victory brings the Tea Party to a higher level of maturity and engagement. And it pushes “the establishment” in Texas and the heartland closer to the margins.
