It’s primary day in Maryland and Sarah Palin is being put to the the test.
It’s one thing for her to support the anti-establishment candidate (i.e., Joe Miller) for U.S. Senator in a state she was once governor of (i.e., Alaska) and to come out the winner.
It’s another for her to support the anti-establishment candidate (i.e., Brian Murphy) for governor in a state she has no connection with (i.e., Maryland) and expect her choice to to win over the former governor of the state (i.e., Robert Ehrlich) in the Republican primary.
So, why do she do it? It’s a can’t lose proposition for her as she continues to lay the groundwork for her White House run in 2012. Her strategy is that as long as she keeps her name in the news, she keeps her name in the news, regardless of whether her anti-establishment candidates win.
