DCCC launches 'Palin's Primaries'

[cnn-photo-caption image= http://i2.cdn.turner.com/cnn/2010/images/02/23/art.palinsprimaries.dccc.jpg caption="The DCCC launched a tongue-in-cheek Web site Tuesday offering ‘a guide’ for Sarah Palin."]Washington (CNN) - The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee launched a tongue-in-cheek Web site Tuesday "to provide Sarah Palin with a guide as to which of the more than 55 competitive House Republican primaries to get involved in."

The DCCC calls the site "Palin's Primaries" and "will highlight the most divisive and messiest House Republican primaries in the country."

The group claims Palin set off a "Republican Civil War" when she endorsed Doug Hoffman, the Conservative Party candidate in New York's Republican-leaning 23rd congressional district, over Republican candidate Dede Scozzafava last October. Scozzafava bowed out of the race and supported Democrat Bill Owens who went on to win the election.

The first set of House races listed on the Web site include open seats in New Hampshire and Tennessee.

Palin, the Republican Party's 2008 vice-presidential nominee, told activists at the Tea Party convention earlier this month that she believes competitive primaries are good for the party and produce the best candidates for general elections.

"Let's not be afraid of contested primaries," Palin said.

    The DCCC is wasting too much time on this pitifully uneducated woman. Please use your time and resources for something more constructive. This may be fun but it's also mean and unproductive.

    Wonder what Sarah will say about this. Maybe more truth will come about her. She will just say they are picking on me again.

    Keep pushing that partisan hate, Ms. Palin. You're sure to keep every uneducated luddite in a froth with your political pandering, lies, avoidance of facts and disassociation with reality.

    Perhaps the DCCC should worry about their own chances in these races and stop worrying about Palin.

    I agree with Palin on this, having more choices going in is better for the country. It makes people have to think.

    This is the practical reason why the SCOTUS decision undoing McCain-Feingold was so wrong. Allowing more money from more sources (corporations) will price out more people until we have almost no choices at all.

    Palin will got "ONLY" to the places Dick Army sends her to. She has been bought and paid for. This is going to be a great show.

  10. RNC = DNC = politics as usual

    DNC and RNC is at its finest (and that is not very fine) when they make fun of the "other" side. I see DNC is continuing its tradition of late of taking pot shots at powerful women who disagree.

    I am glad the DCCC has nothing better to do than,run around sticking their heads in the sand,yelling the sky is falling. What the Hell is wrong with the Dimocrats any way.They keep sticking themselves in the eye with a stick to see if it hurts? You think they would have other things to waste your money on,just keep sending them more and I am sure eventually they will find something of usefulness to spend it on, maybe?

    How bout a real news story, like how nine lawyers now working in the justice department were advocating and defending the captured terrorists in Gitmo, and that included Eric Holder.
    Has obama picked anyone for a job that is not a progressive radical?

    Is it just me? Or is this pointless and stupid? DCCC needs to grow up and stop stalking Palin.

    If she Can Dish it out She caan take it! The people dying without healthcare and their families are probably not much impressed withthe humor and politics of it all. This IS a Matter of Life and Death! And I did not yet even speak of the 100's of 1000's dead due to warmongering and the 4-5 Millions Displaced and turned into Refugees by Direct American Policy and It's Addiction to WAR!

    Now we find so many descending upon Haiti for their quick bucks while the people continue to suffer from massive Poverty also, in large part, caused by corrupt dictators and meddling American "Foreign" Policy. When will the Sorrow end?
