Why we still heart Sarah Palin -- "Sarah Marches On..."
The Daily Telegraph ^ | July 18, 2011 | James Delingpole

Posted on 01/18/2011 8:36:55 AM PST by Cincinatus' Wife

There’s a narrative about Sarah Palin that goes something like this: until the Arizona shootings she coulda been a contender. But then with her ill-judged reference to a “blood libel” she lost it, whereas the mighty President Obama only added to his stature with a temperate, thoughtful speech which united America behind him. Bye bye Sarah Palin.

Yeah, right.

No one is saying Sarah Palin doesn’t make the odd gaffe. But no matter how many gaffes she makes – and this won’t be the last – it isn’t going to alter the fact that President Obama is a socialist and his administration a crazy house of eco-loons, crypto-Marxists, progressives, collectivists, surrender monkeys and anarcho-lesbian harpies. Nor that Sarah Palin remains the figurehead for the counter-revolution.

As exhibit a, I present the above moving, exquisitely tasteful tribute song, currently going viral on the internet. It doesn’t matter who Sarah Palin is any more. It’s what she stands for: liberty, small government, the Tea Party. It’ll take more than a few liberal smears to trample values as powerful as that.

Altogether now: “She’s not a Harvard lawyer but she knew what the Founders meant…”

Thanks for posting! This UK blogger is worth one hundred of our bloviating US pundits on any given day.

Indeed, where's the "gaffe??"

Was she handing out "Blood Libel" souvenier t-shirts?

Did she have an eskimo invoke a 10 minute rambling of nature/spiritual mumbo-jumbo?

Was anyone whooping and hollering in the background?

I believe Delingpole sees she’s human and that the people who love her are too.

The opposite of elites, pseudo scientists, pseudo intellectuals and pseudo Americans.

Yes. What gaffe? Her speech was pitch perfect. And Obama’s performance was abysmal. Even the TV watchers seem to have gotten that much, since his stats weren’t helped one bit by that T-shirt rally he performed at.

Anyway, Delingpole more than makes up for his gaffe comment with his characterization of Obama’s administration: “a crazy house of eco-loons, crypto-Marxists, progressives, collectivists, surrender monkeys and anarcho-lesbian harpies.”

'Blood libel" was not a 'gaffe' of any sort. It was the plain and simple truth.

What I LOVE about My Sara:

2. She could care less about hurting the fellings of someone on the left. She won't do it on purpose, but she won't change becsue some lefty get his or her feeling hurt.
3. She is Qualified, Hey she is 10 times more qualified than the community organizer.
4. Liberals HATE her. Good enpugh for me to LOVE Her. She is doing something right if the left HATES Her.

Well, personally, I don’t consider Palin’s “blood libel” comment a “gaffe”, but an accurate and precise description of what was attempted......a libelous accusation concerning the shed blood of innocents.

Sarah is a heoine of the AMerican people. She has weathered all attacks against her, and now weathers daily death threats against her and her family, at a time when a democrfat colleague politician has been shot by a lunatic fueled by the same hatred as those who threaten Sarah's life.

She has proven she is not a cut and run politician, a quality necessary to occupy the presidential chair.

She is not even "cowed" and the left who attack her do not understand,( maybe we just have to turn up the vitriolic attacks against Sarah and finally get to her,say the left). The left is allowing Sarah to demonstrate to America her abiding courage and patriotism. She has no federal protection, no big budget security team, and she still stands tall and proud in the face of threats on her very life.

This is a brave woman, a heroine of the first water. Many who formerly held her is disrespect , are now really beginning to understand what a rare lady she is, one who is a qualified,serious contender for the office of president.

Thank you Sarah , and may you be protected from these leftist criminal whackos who clearly now mean you harm and have threatened you with death. Identify them. Turn the authorities on them. Heck, turn us on them. They will rue the day.

I believe that James Delingpole is a Brit. Possibly he believes that Americans' perception of the term "blood libel" was a "gaffe," versus much worse, as we are hearing from the Left on this side of the pond.

Regardless, his description of the Obama administration more than makes up for his statement referring to Palin's gaffe.

Putting cross hairs on the pictures of those people would get you in a lot of trouble these days, especially since the recent shooting of Arizona Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords.

Best to just post the pictures showing them in all their natural ugliness. No need to add anything to show the comparison between the inner beauty and goodness of Sarah Palin and the inner ugliness and vileness of the other side.

Do not worry Kim in Khaki, I was only speaking in jest, for now.

I too am a man of khaki. I wear it almost exclusively except for blue jeans now and then. However one must know when to invite trouble. I really do not believe that it would be trouble, President Bush’s image appeared repeatedly in cross hairs in leftist publications and in an assassination computer game, yet it was allowed to pass. I do not really believe in double standards, and know that the left will have to realize that they have awakened a sleeping tiger. Why do you think they tremble and caterwaul so? We are winning at the game.

So I will cross hair them whenever in my judgement it is necessary, just like the leftist MSM is doing with our people, and has done repeatedly in the past. See if they can take their own medicine.But that time is not quite yet in my judgement.

She has no aversions to Eskimos. Todd’s ancestors were and are of Eskimo lineage. That’s probably why he’s so courageous and tough!

Don’t know exactly where she got HER toughness, other than the way her NO BULLHOCKEY Dad raised her; but she’s got it in Spades, anyhow!

I understand the first part. I was comment on someone else saying an Eskimo had done the first part of the Tucson memorial speech. He was joking. What I meant was a slap in Sarah's face because part of her family is Eskimo. Like Obama was rubbing her nose in it. But, the post was a joke about Obama, I didn't get it, but, anyway...lol

Yea Sarah is tough as they come. I do think it was the way she was raised. No none sense and tough love make for the best kind of parents.

I have heard this place referred to from time to time in other places. The generally left wing media does not seem to like you, they call you a right wing hate site. So I figured that I just had to check this place out. I figured I could leave in a hurry (use the back space button or just close the browser in the case of pop up windows harassing me on my way out) if I didn’t like it.

It is nice to find a place where you can read things and say things that you don’t get to see mentioned or discussed in the mass media.

I am absolutely delighted to find a place that speaks highly of Sarah Palin. The media just slams her 24/7, showing how controlled it is and that they must fear her and the support she has.

Looking around I would guess there are lots of typical good old boy types around here, but these are the type of guys that are the ones that know how to treat a lady with respect, even if they are silly at times (boys will be boys).

I see that there are a number of wives and mothers who post here, so it appears that this is a woman-friendly place.

I have checked into here from time to time. And I found that I was spending more time reading the articles and the comments posted here as time went on. Finally the desire to post something just got the better of me. I guess some of the things that bother other people bother me too, and I just wanted a place to vent.

I am getting sick of things going from once nice to now not so nice, things going from from bad to worse and everyone in any official capacity talking all around the subject but never having the guts to mention exactly what the real problems are, to political correctness that says evil is good and you better learn to get comfortable with it, but if you quote the bible you are using hate speech.

I guess that is the best summary I can give as to why I first came here to check it out, and then spend more time here, and finally signed up yesterday.

I am glad to be here among you, Free Republic seems to be composed of fine, thinking conservative people, as shown by the respect and admiration for Sarah Palin. I am so sick and tired of hearing that she is un-qualified and un-electable by everyone (it seems) in the mass media by those who obviously have an agenda to discredit her.

After posting something the fist few times I got a message that my posting was awaiting review, but I am not getting that after hitting the Post button now. So I guess I passed the test.

I guess the ZOT and Viking Kitties is how you get rid of idiots who come here to cause disruption? I guess when you become popular you attract all kinds of attention seeking idiots. Might as well make fun of them as you kick them out the door.

Myself, I simply ignore idiots. Although in real life I might make a mention to someone who I think is young and not aware of some things, but if they don’t consider or heed my advice then at least I figure that I have done my bit and tried to protect them.

Likely as a former governor of Alaska, she does have some state based protection,likely a discrete trooper heavily armed, on patrol where ever she is.And I agree, I bet the whole family over 18 are packing and honing their skills. Can’t say as I blame them at all.

I am on one run by Freeper LucyT. The list has some great conservative women on it, Fred Nerks being one of the most prominant of intellectuals on the entiore site.

It will take a while to see your way around, but don’t be afraid to ask to join a ping list, they keep you up to date on the things you may find you’re interested in, often way ahead of the news outlets.
