Brogdon: "Palin's endorsement more about presidential bid."

State Senator Randy Brogdon fired back after hearing the news of Sarah Palin's endorsement of Congresswoman Mary Fallin in her bid for governor, saying;
"It's perplexing why Gov. Palin, a self described conservative, would endorse someone who supported the Wall Street Bailout and was key to adding hundreds of billions to the national debt. The simple truth is that an endorsement from Ronald Reagan himself wouldn't change the fact that Mary Fallin supports Big Government Bailouts and Pork Barrel Spending."
Here, Brogdon not only calls into question Fallin's conservatism, but takes a shot at the "sweetheart" of both the Tea Party movement and conservative Republicans in Oklahoma who waited in line for hours to get an autographed copy of her book while here a couple months ago. 

Brogdon continues his attack on Palin:
"It is obvious that Palin's endorsement is more about her bid for president in 2012 than supporting Oklahama's values of limited government and controled (sic) spending. I am seeking the approval of Oklahomans and not the Republican establishment."
Ouch.  Palin has not said whether or not she is going to run in 2012, but if she does, she'll receive tremendous support in Oklahoma for her candidacy - though she has not yet announced that she IS running.  Truth of the matter is that she probably will run and the question will be whether or not if she wins the nomination, will Brogdon support her after her endorsement of his opponent?
