In an ingenious ploy by Barak supporters, the group Primaries for Palin are urging Democratic voters to vote for Sarah PalinĀ in Republican primaries in hopes to give Obama an easy win in the 2012 election. According to their polls, Obama stands a better chance at winning and election against Palin that any other Republican candidates.

Most state’s election laws are set up to prevent something like this. Many states, including my home state of Florida, have what is called a closed primary, meaning only that party’s register voters may vote in the primary. However, Primaries for Palin lists each state’s election law, and how to change your party affiliation in order to participate in the primary.

A few issues here.

Firstly, it is way too early to be looking at Presidential election polls. Hell, we’re still on the ass end of 2010. And also, to my knowledge, no one has committed to run yet! Not even Palin, although it is speculated she will announce around the same time her DVD drops. Fitting time, huh?

Secondly, I feel this is completely unethical. Call me simple, but my understanding of an election is for the voter to pick the best person for the job. That is what defines us a Democratic-Republic. Don’t get me wrong, I understand the strategy behind this. I just think it is wrong.

No matter what happens, I don’t think Palin stands a chance. With names like Romney, Huckabee, Gingrich, Giuliani, Christ, Petraeus, and Jindal being thrown around as potential candidates, Palin is going to get verbally destroyed in the debates.

Which makes me as a democrat concerned. Obama will have to put up a fight with many of the aforementioned names, except for Palin. But that’s good. He’s really going to have to evaluate his administration and make some changes if he wants to keep the Democratic voter.

My prediction, Palin loses. No amount of saboteurs from the Democratic Party could save her. And I’m OK with that.
