Mourdock in Indiana, Fischer in Nebraska, Cruz (Part1) In Texas and now Governor Walker and Lt.Governor Kllfisch in Wisconsin. All endorsed by Sarah Palin. All three prior to Wisconsin were winners in different ways whether come from behind, or against all the odds, or didn't stand a chance when they started.
All three showed the courage of conviction by Palin who put conviction above self-interest. Certainly, if the long-shots had all lost, the leftist media would have totally written her off as irrelevant whereas now they sudden discover "the power of Palin".
There is a list of the winners that Palin endorsed AT THIS LINK
For Governor Walker there is no doubt that there were many factors to his victory, not least being his courageous fighting qualities. But Palin's contribution stood out in one way. She had the guts and gumption to actually go to Wisconsin, to brave the leftists and the media and to give him a ringing endorsement.
Noteworthy too was the fact that there was no sign of Mitt Romney at the end, who will now of course reap the benefits of others hard work. Nor for that matter did President Obama have the courage to show up for his man. Not only that President Obama said he would join the picket lines to help the unions-and didn't. Contrast his no show with Palin's bravery.
"As Mitt Romney sweeps Tuesday's primaries in Wisconsin, Maryland and Washington, D.C., we go to Madison to speak with The Nation's John Nichols. He notes Romney has steered further toward the right wing as his campaign progresses. In Wisconsin, Romney channeled the anti-union policies of embattled Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker. "In many cases, though he didn't appear for photographs with Scott Walker"
And here is Palin who was not afraid to go to Wisconsin and nail her colors to the Walker mast.

Hello, Madison, Wisconsin! You look good. I feel like I’m at home. This is beautiful. Madison, I am proud to get to be with you today. Madison, these are the frontlines in the battle for the future of our country. This is where the line has been drawn in the sand. And I am proud to stand with you today in solidarity.
I am here today as a patriot, as a taxpayer, as a former union member, and as the wife of a union member. What I have to say today I say it to our good patriotic brothers and sisters who are in unions. I say this, too, proudly standing here as the daughter of a family full of school teachers. My parents, my grandparents, aunt, cousins, brother, sister – so many of these good folks are living on teachers’ pensions, having worked or are still working in education.
A pension is a promise that must be kept. Now, your Governor Scott Walker understands this. He understands that states must be solvent in order to keep their promises. And that’s what he’s trying to do. He’s not trying to hurt union members. Hey, folks, he’s trying to save your jobs and your pensions! But unfortunately some of your union bosses don’t understand this, and they don’t care if union members have to be laid off. No, they want to protect their own power, and if that means forcing a governor to lay off union workers, then so be it; they’ve proven that is fine with them. But that’s not real solidarity! Real solidarity means coming together for the common good. This Tea Party movement is real solidarity!
Well, I am in Madison today because this is where real courage and real integrity can be found. Courage is your governor and your legislators standing strong in the face of death threats and thug tactics. Courage is you all standing strong with them! You saw the forces aligned against fiscal reform. You saw the obstruction and the destruction. You saw these violent rent-a-mobs trash your capital and vandalize businesses.
Madison, you held your ground. Your governor did the right thing. And you won. Your beautiful state won. And you know what – people still have their jobs because of it! That’s courage. And that’s integrity. And that’s something that’s sorely missing in the Beltway today.
