Palin Promises ‘Lots Of Vetting’ Before She Gives Her Endorsements

Jeffrey Malet

Sarah Palin is promising to do her due diligence before handing her precious endorsement to Republican candidates this year.

“I’m convinced it’s now or never to save our free republic,” she wrote on her Facebook page Wednesday. “So, I’m excited to announce that big U.S. Senate and House of Representative endorsements are on the way! We’ll tackle some state races, too. Lots of vetting and research goes into these endorsements because this is for YOU.”

The pledge invites memories of the 2008 campaign, when John McCain’s team tapped the little-known Alaska governor to serve as his running mate after an alarmingly brief vetting process.

Palin closed her endorsement preview with one of her trademark rhetorical flourishes.

“I’ll roll out endorsements in coming days; I’ll ask you to support the good guys, and we’ll all covet prayers for them and for the great awakening I’m confident our nation is experiencing as people open their eyes to the present harsh reality but also to America’s future positive possibilities as we seek our nation’s good destiny!”
