When Sarah Palin endorsed Doug Hoffman, not only did she endorse him, but she articulated the true conservative philosophy in a way that not only referenced Ronald Reagan, but in a way we have not seen done since Reagan. In a facebook note where she clearly articulates a philosophy and a direction for the GOP, Palin writes "Our nation is at a crossroads, and this is once again a 'time for choosing.'"
Her endorsement is more than just an endorsement for a Congressional candidate. It is an articulation of the direction that Palin believes the Republican party must go.
Political parties must stand for something. When Republicans were in the wilderness in the late 1970s, Ronald Reagan knew that the doctrine of "blurring the lines" between parties was not an appropriate way to win elections. Unfortunately, the Republican Party today has decided to choose a candidate who more than blurs the lines, and there is no real difference between the Democrat and the Republican in this race. This is why Doug Hoffman is running on the Conservative Party's ticket.Palin shines the light on the movement in her acknowledgement that "Republicans and conservatives around the country are sending an important message to the Republican establishment in their outstanding grassroots support for Doug Hoffman: no more politics as usual."
Sarah Palin is clearly in touch with the movement that is staying true to the words of Ronald Reagan when he said bold colors - no pale pastels.
