Gleeful Reaction To Fischer's Win From The Palinosphere. Crickets From the Sullen Left

Why is this man smiling?

Mike Flynn: Palin endorsement ‘made all the difference’ in Fischer win

Mike Flynn, former government affairs director for the Reason Foundation and now a contributor,writes that Gov. Palin's late endorsement of state Senator Deb Fischer in Nebraska's GOP primary for the U.S. Senate "shook up the race" and "made all the difference" in Fiuscher's stunning upset victory Tuesday:
I follow politics very closely, yet I hadn't heard of the Fischer candidacy until Palin's endorsement. National tea party groups like FreedomWorks had put all their resources behind Stenburg, with nary a thought about Fischer. A good reminder that these groups aren't as plugged into the grassroots as they like to claim.
Flynn says voters are rejecting politics as usual and rewarding bold, fearless candidates who stand on principle. Sarah Palin gets that, Flynn observes, while hoping that someday the national GOP will get it also.

The Weekly Standard's Michael Warren reports that Fischer defeated "the better-funded" state attorney general Jon Bruning by nearly 9,000 votes.

"Just two weeks ago, the battle for the GOP nomination for the U.S. Senate seat in Nebraska was between state Attorney General Jim Bruning and state Treasurer Don Stenburg. Neither inspired the growing base of conservative voters. They were, to be charitable, standard conservative-ish career politicians. Mama Grizzly Sarah Palin shook up the race with a late endorsement of state Senator Debby Fischer. It made all the difference"

The Tea Party is dead but Deb Fischer wins Nebraska’s GOP Senate primary

rino-republicansWow. The Tea Party really is dead isn’t it? As if Richard Mourdock’s crushing of RINO old fart Dick Lugar didn’t send the pink slime media, establishment RINOs, and Marxist Democrats a message, maybe this will. Nebraska held their primaries tonight. Mitt Romney of course won the GOP nomination for president. But out of no where, Tea Party candidate Deb Fischer won the Republican Senate nomination after being endorsed by Sarah Palin and Herman Cain. Next up is Texas on May 29th where Ted Cruz needs to beat RINO establishment David Dewhurst, next month Dan Liljenquist needs to beat RINO dinosaur Orrin Hatch
Just a basic early report from TWITCHY AT THIS LINK but the comments section is gleeful!

As would be expected the Free Republic folks are pretty enthused AT THIS LINK

For those of you who thought ( or hoped) that Sarah Palin was history, well, like I told you, you have another think coming.
