GOP Congressman To Sarah Palin: Get Out Of The Endorsement Business
GOP Congressman To Sarah Palin: Get Out Of The Endorsement Business

U.S. Congressman Jack Kingston (R-Georgia) says Sarah Palin should mind her own business and keep out of Peach State politics -- and politics in other states too.

The harsh criticism comes on the heels of the ex-Alaska Governor's decision to actively campaign for unsuccessful Georgia gubernatorial candidate Karen Handel who lost to Nathan Deal in the state's GOP primary runoff on Tuesday.

"Why Sarah Palin decided to get in the race is beyond me," explained Kingston in an appearance on "America's Morning News" with John McCaslin and Amy Holmes. "I don't know why she feels compelled to get into primaries all over the country, but fortunately Georgia voters are doing their own thinking on things like this."

When asked if he thought Palin should refrain from wading into primary election match-ups in general, the Georgia congressman responded, "I wish she will."

2. I have a suggestion to Sara.
Endorse who you want to. I do. You know why, your enemies want to make it like you are the bad person. And part of that is trying to make people you like have a tough time.

They want you to take a bad role, and want to paint you into it, don't agree to it.


People do that all the time, they ask people to play the bad guy, then throw them under the bus.


Don't say something bad about someone or do bad to try and play a bad guy, that is a way some people use other people.


Although I disagree with Sara on politics, people should endorse who they want to.



Rahm wanted many left progressives to play the bad guy to there good guy many times also. Not going to do it, it is them trying to get good people to act bad to make them look better for their own agenda.

3. Oh come on, Mr. Kingston; you know precisely why she does what she does
I suppose it's a measure of misplaced respect that the term "money-grubbing" didn't cross your lips.

6. To think that IDIOT was so close to the OVAL OFFICE is an indication
of our social challenges...

The Palin FILTER should be initiated: To prevent "Ineptness" from reaching the OVAL Office
