Queen of the Right

Despite the stumble by Conservative Party candidate Doug Hoffman in NY-23 yesterday, the poewr of Palin doesn’t seem to be diminished in the least. Check out this leaked memo from Mark Kirk, a downstate Illinois Republican who’s running for the Senate seat currently occupied by Roland Burris, and who has some work to do with the hard right that currently runs what’s left of the Republican Party. From the Washington Post:

After noting that Palin will be in Chicago later this month to appear on “Oprah”, Kirk writes that “the Chicago media will focus on one key issue: Does Gov[ernor] Palin oppose Congressman Mark Kirk’s bid to take the Obama Senate seat for the Republicans?”

Kirk goes on to write that he is hoping for something “quick and decisive” from Palin about the race, perhaps to the effect of: “Voters in Illinois have a key opportunity to take Barack Obama’s Senate seat. Congressman Kirk is the lead candidate to do that.”

As depressing as yesterday was, at least we have a year of Republican all-out Civil War to look forward to. That’s worth some popcorn, at least.
