Palin: Let's Primary Ayotte and Rubio

Can't disagree.

I was never a super-fan of Ayotte. I favored Ovide Lemontagne over her in the primary, and was annoyed when Palin endorsed Ayotte.

Rubio probably can't be beat but there's no harm in trying.

Palin' pitch here is about honesty and fidelity, not the issues per se. Her main problem, per her statements, is that Rubio and Ayotte simply lied to primary voters (and she herself, I imagine) and aren't trustworthy.

“Conservatives are getting ready for the 2014 and 2016 primaries. We have long memories, and there will be consequences for those who break campaign promises and vote for this amnesty bill," Palin told Breitbart News. "Competition makes everyone work harder, be better, and be held accountable. This applies to politics, too. No one is ‘entitled’ to anything."

She continued, "Rigorous debate in competitive primaries allows candidates the opportunity to explain their flip-flops. So think of contested primaries as a win-win for politicians and their voters."

...

"Every politician should be held accountable for breaking their campaign promises," Palin said during an interview on the "John Gibson Radio Show" on Fox News radio. "They turned their back on the American public, so why should they not be held accountable?"

It seems hard to make a case in favor of less honesty, candor, and accountability in politics, but I'm sure the New York Times and the rest of the Liberal Cheer Squad in the media will make that case when these two get a primary challenger. We'll hear endless whining about "extremism" in the conservative movement, and very little at all about honoring promises made to voters.
