Sarah Palin (and others) endorse a non-Republican candidate in election.

So, the Palinator has official endorsed a candidate in an election who is standing against someone from her own party. In most political parties this would be immediate grounds for expulsion. Problem is the GOP thinks that the headline-grabbing loonies in its ranks have more credibility with their current base than the people in charge.

Of course since the candidate was nominated by local GOP members it also shows that the right-wing aristocracy aren’t necessarily representing the party members at all.
