I don’t know who’s advising her at this point, but Sarah Palin is making some shrewd political moves lately that are likely to vault her into a very favorable position as leader of the only real “reform” faction in the Republican party.

Since the publication of Going Rogue, Palin has demonstrated an understanding not only her core constituency, but has slightly redefined her public image to allow a broader cross section of conservatives to embrace her. This has caused her poll numbers to rise and increase her standing with what passes for the reformist element in the Republican party.

But the question will be for Palin is who is driving who? The way the Tea Party folks want to “reform” the Republican party is to toss out those members of congress who fail to live up to their impossible standards of conservate ideology. Political professionals realize that this would mean a smaller party, not a larger one.

Interesting, though as usual, controversial article from Rick Moran of Right Wing Nut House. Here's the full version (http://rightwingnuthouse.com/archives/2010/01/08/sarah-palin-as-the-pivot-for-new-gop/)

Screw the mainstream Repub party. McCain, Romney, Steele are mainstream. A Repub. lite is not what the Tea Party followers are about. I hope she sticks to her guns cause she is going to steam roll these RINO's. That's what real conservatives want. If she gets the nomination, RINO's will vote for her just like most conservatives voted for McCain.
