Quote of the Day: Sarah Palin on Why Florida Republicans Should Vote for Newt Gingrich

Our political Quote of the Day comes from former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin:

Vote for Newt. Annoy a liberal. Vote Newt. Keep this vetting process going, keep the debate going.”

And so it comes down to this. The vote — that little thing that so many Americans died for more than two centuries to make sure all Americans had — should be used to “annoy” someone with whom you disagree. Someone who has a different ideological label than you do. The rest of Palin’s comment about keeping the vetting process going, fair enough.

But “Vote for Newt. Annoy a liberal”?

This quote isn’t notable for what it says about Gingrich.

Or for what it says about the vetting process.

But for what it says about Palin.
