Sarah Palin’s latest Facebook note is an open letter to Republican freshmen. In her letter she gives these freshmen some very sound advice. I really liked these two points:
The Hill: "Republicans campaigned on a promise to rein in out-of-control government spending and to repeal and replace the massive, burdensome, and unwanted health care law President Obama and the Democrat Congress passed earlier this year in defiance of the will of the majority of the American people," Palin wrote. "These are promises that you must keep."[…]
Remember that some in the media will love you when you stray from the time-tested truths that built America into the most exceptional nation on earth. When the Left in the media pat you on the back, quickly reassess where you are and readjust, for the liberals' praise is a warning bell you must heed. Trust me on that.
I think Republican freshmen would do well to heed this advice, especially the second one. How many Republicans are susceptible to positive press? John McCain immediately comes to my mind!
I don’t envy any of the Tea Party candidates. They have an extremely narrow path to walk and for new kids in town the pressure from the old Washington crowd must be great. Like you, I will no doubt be keeping my eyes open for who strays or who stays true. We should all send letters of encouragement when these members stay true. Let them know the people who sent them there has their backs.
