Operation Freep Palin- Counter the Attack (update @219- small, token gifts OK)
Vanity

Posted on 11/06/2008 8:43:30 AM PST by mnehring

Edited on 11/06/2008 10:47:00 AM PST by Admin Moderator. [history]

Several posters have mentioned this over the past week, but I want to bring it up again. Governor Sarah Palin is under attack from both the right (faux right) and the left, blaming her for McCain's loss.

We all know the truth- few of us could ever have supported McCain without her.

Freepers, it is time to counter the attacks and encourage Governor Palin. Let's overwhelm her with thank-you cards, letters, flowers, etc.

Here is what you can do:

Please refrain from calling any offices, also try to keep e-mails to a minimum. If at all possible, a real thank you note or card will have the most meaning.

Also- of course, add FreeRepublic.com in your signature line.

OH MY GOSH! I just finished writing her - and was looking for an address. I encouraged her to stay in Alaska with her wonderful family and enjoy them - and to forget about running for any office except the office she now has.

She is one great gal and doesn’t deserve the abuse she’s had to take here.

The left is very afraid of that lady, and will do anything (as we have already seen) to keep her out of the 2012 race.

Palin was wonderful. It was McPain that I couldn’t stand. And now with POO, the nation gets BO.

She can run for Senator from Alaska, a fresh breath of air that is needed in the Senate.

I'm in that category too. I'll write her at Christmas to thank her when she's less overwhelmed. I hope other Freepers will put her on their Christmas lists too.

I e-mailed her too, but wanted her to stick with us and lead us out of the wilderness. She is a leader, we need her. Her family knows the sacrafice and you don’t get too many like her very often.

Planning to send her a thank you note. Several of them, over the next few months. The Sarah bashing has me madder than I’ve been in a very long time.

Cameron is on with O’reilly now.

Man, he is not going to let up. BOR is trying to get Palin on Monday to counter the charges.

My simple solution is to drop my GOP registration and become an Independent until a real conservative option surfaces.

These GOP “leaks” to the MSM about Sarah Palin are the final straw to me. Bye bye, GOP, it's been a great 19 years (I am 37 years old).

I would rather find out who these people are and push them out. This is OUR party, let’s not let a few bully us. The party has been letting that happen for a while, it is time to take it back.

OUR party's leaders want the Shamnesty bill as much, or even more so, than do the Democrats.

What's the point? The party machine is right now destroying any chance Palin has of being a party leader in the future. It is disgusting, and I will not stand for it. I'm leaving...buh bye GOP.

Yes, you are right. E-mails are a cyber-nothing. Make it a physical demonstration. A card, letter, flowers, gift basket, whatever strikes your heart (and wallet of course). Make this something the Alaska Postal Service remembers forever.

Ping for later-

I have never been so outraged in all my life as to how this magnificent self made woman has been savagely, and undesrvedly, attacked. I will never watch Fox again-Carl Cameron was giddy with glee as he unloaded on her with an "unnamed source". Hey Bill, Caution, you are about to enter a no viewer zone.

beautiful....

I just sent the following e-mail:

Mrs. Palin;

I wanted to say Thank You!!

Thank you for your strength in the recent campaign....Thank you for your grace under fire in the face of the vitriolic and false attacks against you....Thank you for giving common conservatives like myself a real reason to be excited about this campaign.

Please understand- while elites from both sides of the aisle take glee in bashing you, everyday Americans, such as myself, stand with you and hope you continue moving forward in your political career. There’s a reason why you were drawing tens of thousands to your rally’s and joe biden was drawing just tens!

Everyone,
Please try to send physical cards or letters, only use the e-mail option if no other option exists for you. We don’t want to overwhelm her e-mail and it doesn’t have the meaning of real, tangible thank you notes.

I am seeking digital photos of Sarah Palin for a new web site I am setting up in appreciation of her. These need to be available for use without copyright restrictions - preferably taken by those who own the photos and who are willing to grant permission for their use.

Please send me a private message and I will provide an e-mail address.
