Skip to comments.Palin. (Scales Fall from Red State Eyes)

Its been almost three years since I, along with many others, was introduced to Governor Sarah Palin. In that time we have been saturated with coverage of her and just about everybody on the left and the right, has had the opportunity to get to know who she is and what they think of her.
At least thats what I thought.
I thought she hadnt gotten a fair shake in the media, but I felt confident that I could see through the bias and that I understood who she was, what she had done and what my opinion would probably be about her going forward.
I was entirely incorrect.
I pride myself on my ability to know when something is baloney, almost instinctively. On Sarah Palin, I was so incredibly hoodwinked that the one word that my wife and I agreed described how we felt after watching it, was shame. Yes of course invigoration, satisfaction and all the other things you experience when watching a good film, but about how we had handled our vetting of Mrs. Palin, shame was the word that best described it.
Shame for not bothering to look up her record. Shame for not reading her story. Shame for turning the channel when she came on the tv. Shame for not listening to people that we had a great deal of respect for like Andrew Breitbart, Tammy Bruce, Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity.
As Breitbart points out in the film, the greatest shame is that while this woman was savaged to degrees you may not even realize yet, some of us sat back and let it happen.

Sarah Palin 2012 or bust
That’s why they use propaganda because it works. Even those who think they can’t be deceived - are! Solution is - turn off the media.
Game changer indeed ...
And imprison the Marxists.
Palin is the real deal! Everyone else is toast and tomatoes!
You know, we (as a country) used to recognize them (Marxist/communists) as the enemy and fight actual wars against them.
Point well taken, but how do we account for those people of good will who do get deceived? Why them and not us? We both have access to the same flow of data. What makes the difference?
>> but about how we had handled our vetting of Mrs. Palin, shame was the word that best described it.
I understand the intrinsic hatred for Palin by the Left, but the systemic ignorance depicted by Howe is simply astonishing especially where it involves Sarah’s fellow Alaskans.
DUh. There is a simple litmus test for people in the public eye.
IF big media likes someone, the person is a crazed liberal piece of sh!t. If they demonize them night and day, they are upstanding, conservative citizens that love and support America.
the local chamber of commerce can set the quota, after listening to any complaints from the convicts.
“Thats why they use propaganda because it works. Even those who think they cant be deceived - are! Solution is - turn off the media.”
You’re right. People should turn off their t.v. I turned off my t.v. set over a month ago and I haven’t missed it one bit. Now, I’m thinking about getting rid of the programming subscription and save some money there too. I get my news from alternative media on the Internet. I recommend people try turning off their t.v. at least for a short time. I bet they won’t miss it either.
“...........this woman was savaged to degrees you may not even realize yet, some of us sat back and let it happen.”
I started to compose insults directed at FR PDSers and decided it just wasn’t worth my time.
I simply want Sarah Palin to become our next ‘real’ President. I simply want our country back and I want this nightmare to finally end.
“I simply want Sarah Palin to become our next real President. I simply want our country back and I want this nightmare to finally end.”
It’s going to take effort on our part. Freedom is never free.
“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.”
40th president of US (1911 - 2004)
True. A law of diminishing returns applies. Beating back misinformation and disinformation is one thing. But spending forever trying to disentangle an entrenched PDSer from their delusional thinking is a waste of perfectly good and billable time.
Contact your Congress persons and demand they Reinstitute the House Committee on Un-American Activities We are fighting the enemy within.
Dick Cheney should replace Giuliani on your list.
To sit back hoping that someday, someway, someone will make things right is to go on feeding the crocodile, hoping he will eat you last—but eat you he will. Ronald Reagan
I think the Gov has got what it takes to unravel this mess we’re in...and undo all the baloney that’s been going on the last few years!
Y'know, I've been unhappy with some of Palin's pronouncements and tactics the last couple years. If I heard about 'Mama Grizzlies' one more time, I thought I'd scream. But, in the end, though I've tried to get excited about Cain and then Bachmann, I can't help but hope that Palin runs.
>> “ Even those who think they cant be deceived - are!” <<
But mostly, those that wish to be deceived are.
The con man never cheats the honest man...
The extraordinary success that Sarah achieved as Gov were BIG issues - not the small stuff like “school uniforms”.
Sarah has the intelligence, values, will power and sheer strength to be a GREAT president and to save America and our Constitution!
We are smarter than they are and don’t just read the headlines or allow ourselves to be told what to think....
Sarah! UNDEFEATED! VINDICATED!
Congrats to Red State for finally waking up to the truth. Better late than never!
You might want to add Rummy to that list as well.
I love ‘em all and everyone else who gets under their skin and messes with their little minds.
Wow, just wow.
I will go out on a limb and say that it will be mid to late August when she publicly announces. I will also speculate and say that it will be at the end of her West Coast Bus Tour at some 'rally' (maybe?). Just guessing here.
Yes, definitely Donald Rumsfeld!
