A Thanksgiving Message to All 57 States (Sarah Palin Responds to 'North Korea' Media Smear)
Facebook ^ | Thursday, November 25, 2010 | Sarah Palin

Posted on 11/25/2010 5:17:31 PM PST by kristinn

My fellow Americans in all 57 states, the time has changed for come. With our country founded more than 20 centuries ago, we have much to celebrate – from the FBI’s 100 days to the reforms that bring greater inefficiencies to our health care system. We know that countries like Europe are willing to stand with us in our fight to halt the rise of privacy, and Israel is a strong friend of Israel’s. And let’s face it, everybody knows that it makes no sense that you send a kid to the emergency room for a treatable illness like asthma and they end up taking up a hospital bed. It costs, when, if you, they just gave, you gave them treatment early, and they got some treatment, and ah, a breathalyzer, or an inhalator. I mean, not a breathalyzer, ah, I don’t know what the term is in Austrian for that…

Of course, the paragraph above is based on a series of misstatements and verbal gaffes made by Barack Obama (I didn’t have enough time to do one for Joe Biden). YouTube links are provided just in case you doubt the accuracy of these all too human slips-of-the-tongue. If you can’t remember hearing about them, that’s because for the most part the media didn’t consider them newsworthy. I have no complaint about that. Everybody makes the occasional verbal gaffe – even news anchors.

Obviously, I would have been even more impressed if the media showed some consistency on this issue. Unfortunately, it seems they couldn’t resist the temptation to turn a simple one word slip-of-the-tongue of mine into a major political headline. The one word slip occurred yesterday during one of my seven back-to-back interviews wherein I was privileged to speak to the American public about the important, world-changing issues before us.

If the media had bothered to actually listen to all of my remarks on Glenn Beck’s radio show, they would have noticed that I refer to South Korea as our ally throughout, that I corrected myself seconds after my slip-of-the-tongue, and that I made it abundantly clear that pressure should be put on China to restrict energy exports to the North Korean regime. The media could even have done due diligence and checked my previous statements on the subject, which have always been consistent, and in fact even ahead of the curve. But why let the facts get in the way of a good story? (And for that matter, why not just make up stories out of thin air – like the totally false hard news story which has run for three days now reporting that I lobbied the producers of “Dancing with the Stars” to cast a former Senate candidate on their show. That lie is further clear proof that the media completely makes things up without doing even rudimentary fact-checking.)

“Hope springs eternal” as the poet says. Let’s hope that perhaps, just maybe, they might get it right next time. When we the people are effective in holding America’s free press accountable for responsible and truthful reporting, then we shall all have even more to be thankful for!

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

- Sarah Palin

Well, like I said, it was merely a slip of the tongue. But knowing what the LSM will do with a slip of the tongue from her, she should try to smooth out stuff like that. Needless to say, Obammy has gaffed 10 times more than Palin.

Only the Son of God could live a life with no slip of the tongue.

To suggest that Sarah has to not make mistakes shows either a lack of objectivity on your part or a lack of tolerance or a lack of sincerity.

Are you willing to hold every potential GOP POTUS candidate to this same level of scrutiny?

“You are neither objective, sincere, or fair in this attack on Sarah.

Be gone Troll! “

LOL. You called me into this. If you think she can win by gaffing like Obama, that’s between you and your therapist.

I think that she has virtually no room to flub...just as Dan Quayle (potatoe) and Bush-41 (with the supermarket scanner) learned. And in BOTH cases, they were easily explainable - but the DAMAGE was done IMMEDIATELY, because they were set up to fail by the MSM. And neither EVER RECOVERED fully.

A brilliantly comprehensive takedown by Palin of the Propaganda Ministry.

You will notice the vast gulf between how Palin operates and how Karl Rove and the blissfully incompetent Bush Public Relations operation during the Second Term? Notice a difference?

One fights back and NEVER lets a negative attack go unanswered, indeed, one uses lefty mistakes and miscues against its opponent, the other's meek responses gets buried in an avalanche of left wing propaganda.

You saw the difference today. ANY potential candidate who knows how to counterattack like that is showing you Presidential timbre.

Period. Accept no rationalizations.

Best,

Chris

Good stuff, gov! Now tell them the one about Biden mentioning Pres. Roosevelt going on tv to talk to folks about the stock market crash, and Katie Couric just sitting there lapping it up all serious.
That’s my favorite. ;)

"To suggest that Sarah has to not make mistakes shows either a lack of objectivity on your part or a lack of tolerance or a lack of sincerity."

Look, the media is slavering to tear her apart. As soon as she says something like this, the LSM will leap on it.

"Are you willing to hold every potential GOP POTUS candidate to this same level of scrutiny?"

No.

they usually leap before they look and make fools of themselves.

And if you allow it to work with Palin the LSM will do it with every GOP politician for ever and ever. They allowed it to work with bush so they moved to Palin and you can go back to Ike if you want.

The new media "ain't like the old" media, Bob. You don't even seem to understand that Sarah Palin used the new media (Facebook) to very effectively "refudiate" the Mouthpiece Media's propaganda and neutralize what could be called The Potatoe Effect.

Nobody skewers them as surgically or with such devastating humor as does our Sarah. She's a raging bull elephant with a scalpel tongue and a razor wit, and she'll as soon gore you on her tusks or slice you to ribbons with either tool.

Sweet stuff, Palin, you had me gasping for air by "in Austrian". Hysterically funny, and rapaciously bloodthirsty. In other words...

... Nice!

Looks like Ann Coulter might have a little competition.

I was trying to figure out why I and many others appreciate Sarah Palin more each and every day. The answer, or should I say answers, are as clear as the writing on Barak Obama’s Teleprompter.

She has guts. She enjoys life. She makes no apologies for who she is. She says what she means and she means what she says. She works hard and expects people around her to work just as hard. She is a Patriot. She came from obscurity and is shaking up the Political establishment on both sides of the aisle. Despite her financial success, she is still someone who realizes that this wonderful country is the only thing that has allowed her to succeed and will allow others to succeed as well.

Despite the attacks by people at each end of the Political spectrum who think she is just in it for the money, she continues to put herself out there as the target for those who not only hate her for whatever deluded reasons, but who also hate us with the same passion.

It's about time that our side responds forcefully and satirically to the baseless attacks launched against us. Perhaps Karl Rove can look to Governor Palin to see how he screwed up in not defending the Bush Administration from the last ten years of lies and deceit from the Liberal Media and their allies in the DemocRat Party.

The new media gave us McCain? Whahhh? That makes no sense. The flawed primary sy$tem is what gave us McCain. (Only thing good about it is we got to know Sarah Palin.)

It's the old establishment, the bluebloods, the entrenched elite, the puppetmasters, with the assistance of the old media, who are trying to "saddle us with Romney". Sarah is bucking the system and the saddle.

“The new media gave us McCain”

Thanks for demonstrating your ignorance. You have no idea what the “new media” is, do you?

Here, let me help you out. New media is talk radio, the blogosphere and social media (like Facebook and Twitter).

And here’s your second clue: The New Media was nearly unanimously AGAINST McCain. The conservative side of new media didn’t like McCain because he’s not a conservative, and the liberal side of it (lefty blogs) attacked him because he was running against their beloved Obama.

It was the OLD media that hyped McCain until he got the nomination, then it turned against him to hype Obama.

After nearly 5 hours, there are about 11,000 hits and 2700 messages on Sarah's Face Book page about this. Evidently others are feeling the same way as here: Good for you speaking out. The MSM is going to have a harder time sliming candidates with web sites like FR, Drudge, etc. than before. With only one source of information, it was easier to tar & feather a candidate. Plus, she isn't going to stand by and let them. Good for her!

Excellent post. To think, on Thanksgiving when she was probably quite busy with 5 kids, one grandchild, she not only wrote this pwnage but correctly decided to leave the “Muslim faith” one out of it because it was Freudian.

Sarah on her twitter account started getting message after message from leftist idiots who thought that SHE was the one saying that there are 57 states..OMG what f’n morons..I guess we know what they DONT read, and that is her entire facebook post, because if they had they would have figured out it was their Marxist messiah who made those idiotic comments. Its like they can’t handle the truth about him, I love reading stuff like that from them. Just proves what idiots they really are

It’s always a most enjoyable experience to know you are smarter than your foe.

Most of the morons in the media (as represented by Couric,Mika n Joe, Olberman) think they are smarter than anybody else. They laugh while the joke is on them.

However, the DNC/RNC Establishment apparatus of insiders as represented by (Axelrod, Rove, etc.) know very well that they are being co-opted by someone who won’t play by their established rules.

Gov. Palin is worth fighting for and against, for both sides. Actually believing in something is a danger to the bad guys and crisp drink to the parched throats of the good guys.

“ANY potential candidate who knows how to counterattack like that is showing you Presidential timbre.”

Exactly.

And let’s face it—while there is always a need to maintain integrity, sometimes you can try too hard to turn the other cheek. There comes a point when it seems a bit self-absorbed and pretentious.

I mean, you can preserve the integrity of the office and all that, but if your efforts bring political defeat to your party it ruins everything.

Self-absorption can destroy integrity just as much as rolling around in the mud with your critics. Bush’s problem was he was either too self-absorbed or he just didn’t understand that he was doing more harm than good.

I believe Palin knows how to fight back, and do it with integrity.

What a load! She just turned this into a kick in the stones to the press wile highlighting how dumb Obama really is. All of this was done with a few paragraphs on Facebook thereby further solidifying it as the ultimate goto place to hear directly (no MSM) from Sarah Palin.

She has undertaken a revolution against the power of the elites and their pet press. She just burned down their headquarters and is pursuing the stragglers.

Kristinn,
thanks for posting.

One gaff that I believe is not accurately being reported on is Zero's 57 states comment, I believe it is actually 58 states.

Zero says “ ...I have been in 57 states..with one more to go.”

Last time I checked, 57+1=58..
