WHAT IN THE WORLD IS WRONG WITH SARAH PALIN???
Self | January 20, 2011 | MestaMachine

Posted on 01/20/2011 1:03:30 PM PST by MestaMachine

Having been alerted to Sarah before John McCain ever picked her as his VP running mate, hoping against hope that she would actually be the one, I was nevertheless surprised, albeit overjoyed, when he announced her. She did not fit him. She was everything he is not nor can ever hope to be.

The outpouring of love and admiration for Sarah was a thing to behold! Conservative coffers, closed to McCain, suddenly swung wide open showering huge cash on Sarah...and we all know it was the exact opposite of what McCain expected.

His poll numbers went up like a rocket and she outshined him like the sun outshines the moon. He was only seen ever after in her glow, and so they had to diminish her in any way they could. His campaign staff is still on the job and his own backhanded damning with faint praise "defense" of her is nothing short of shameful.

When she was attacked mercilessly by the hard left, he and his campaign never stepped up to the plate to blunt the attack machine, and meanwhile, McCain defended obama with great zeal, telling us all that indeed, obama would make a wonderful president, that he was a "patriot," and he chided the Conservatives who tried to take obama on for his socialist policies.

In short, McCain's own campaign not only did NOT defend Sarah, they fed the opposition ammunition to use in their attempt to destroy her.

Since then, Sarah has done what no politician in my lifetime has ever done, and she did it during the same time that the hardcore left was digging under every rock from since the day she was born to find something, anything, they could use to defame, discredit, and destroy not just her, but her entire family.

And they have failed utterly.

The extreme leftist women who have gleefully slandered her are the dregs of femaledom. Some look and act as though they have been preserved in formaldehyde. Others, including many of the RINO women, look as though they are wearing botox deathmasks and/or fifty or a hundred extra pounds. Still others are so filled with venom that their inner ugliness shows on the outside. They shot their worst at Sarah and only succeeded in finding themselves covered with the blowback of their own exhaust...as it should be. Spit into the wind and find youself covered in slime.

The men on the left who excoriate her on an almost daily basis are the most insecure examples of "manhood" I have ever seen. Not a single one of them could do what she has done, let alone in such a short amount of time. They seem to need to prove their manliness by being tough on ladies. And when I say "ladies," you know I am speaking of Conservative women because the left just doesn't produce that kind of quality. As a group, gay or straight, you seldom see even a remnant of the class that Conservative women all over this country exude. The women of the left are shrill and shrieky to the point where one simply can't stand to listen, and if you try, what you most often hear was not worth the time you took because three quarters of what they say either makes no sense, or it is outrageous and ridiculous.

The men on the left are pretty much in the same category. It makes one wonder whether they are jealous because she has Todd...and they don't.

Then we have our own so-called "conservative" men who have been so used to running the show...and the party...into the ground, that they cannot brook the thought that a "mere" soccer mom from Alaska, of all places, could do in one year what most of them cannot do in a lifetime. All of their "achievements" have been because they got somewhere on someone else's coattails, and they played fast and loose with their core "values" and "principles" to do it.

Newt Gingrich comes to mind. Does he think we have forgotten who he was in his previous life? Or that he attacked Conservatives for demanding that those who represent us DO adhere to core values and principles?

Charles Krauthammer, who sometimes has flashes of conservatism, all too often doesn't. He is an insider who runs with the pack, and his views are often couched in an "old boy" elitism that makes me want to throw shoes at my television.

Those are just two, but you get my drift. The men who have held on to the reins of power are having serious withdrawal symptoms. But I have news. The women Conservatives in the Republican Party are strong and growing stronger. We will not allow the old boy network to overshadow us or the Conservative men who stand for ALL of us and not for themselves. It is no longer your establishment party, and Sarah is just the tip of the iceberg.

John McCain, chameleon that he is, might have done his greatest public service, whether he intended to or not, by choosing Sarah Palin as his runnung mate. It has ushered in a new age of American politics the likes of which hasn't been seen since the FIRST American Revolution.Would that he had retired gracefully and left that as his legacy. Alas.

Now back to the original question. What in the world IS wrong with Sarah Palin? And the answer, without any equivocation, is...ABSOLUTELY NOTHING.

THAT is what drives the whacko left and the elitist "moderate right" to insane distraction. They have left no stone unturned to find one, just ONE, thing wrong with her, and they can not do it because it doesn't exist. All they have found is graciousness, intelligence, honesty, humanity, strength, conviction, patriotism, and faith. She has stood up and they will never succeed in knocking her down because she doesn't NEED them.

Know thyself and to thine own self be true. That is Sarah. And we know Sarah.

Today Rush said Sarah Palin would “wipe the floor” with Hussein in the next election. I agree.

President Sarah Louise Palin

Get used to it RINOs and Libs. We’re taking the country back.

She’s not a RINO? Maybe it’s because she actually believes that constitution thing.

Nothing any rational person, without their own political agenda could see. That’s basically ‘it’. She stands in the way of ‘their’ plans.

The Obama political operation plus the Soros “paid media” in collusion with the so-called “lamestreammedia” are leftists well versed in the Alinsky Rules for Radicals.

13. Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it. In conflict tactics there are certain rules that [should be regarded] as universalities. One is that the opposition must be singled out as the target and ‘frozen.’...

“...any target can always say, ‘Why do you center on me when there are others to blame as well?’ When your ‘freeze the target,’ you disregard these [rational but distracting] arguments.... Then, as you zero in and freeze your target and carry out your attack, all the ‘others’ come out of the woodwork very soon. They become visible by their support of the target...’

“One acts decisively only in the conviction that all the angels are on one side and all the devils on the other.” (pps.127-134)

The Left is terrified of [Sarah Palin]. The Left knows that she would wipe the floor with Obama. Our intelligentsia on the Right-Wing know that she would wipe the floor with Obama. That’s what all of this means. …

The point of this is that if Republicans are going to sit by and watch Palin savaged, they’d better be prepared to sit by and watch the next one get savaged; and the next one because that’s what’s coming.

No President Palin or Bachman for at least the next four cycles. The American middle will not experiment with an alternative president in the near future. Middle aged white guy again. Huckabe or Romney after 0’s second term.

“One acts decisively only in the conviction that all the angels are on one side and all the devils on the other.”

In real terms, we are already at that point. We angels outnumber them, but they are evil and much more willing to act on it.
Woe to them if they try.

History says I am right, but hey we are in weird times. The other thing that Palinistas need to understand and deal with is her hard disapproval numbers. They run through the middle which does not get you elected to president.

Here is the medias problem. In order to be a successful politician you must be controllable, in order to be controllable you must be compromised. In order to be compromised you have to violate your values.

In general most politicians by their very nature are desperate for acceptance. The media knows this so it sets up a perfect co-parasitic relationship. Politician needs the press and the press controls the politician.
There in lies the problem with Sarah. For 3 years they have dug, lied,twisted, blamed to destroy her because she is not compromised. Er go, not controllable. They need someone that they can blackmail and “play the game” There are no strings to pull on Palin, and they have blown all their best chances. They are desperate to crush her to get her out of the race. That is what you are seeing, today a full court press on Sarah.

". . . The women Conservatives in the Republican Party are strong and growing stronger. We will not allow the old boy network to overshadow us or the Conservative men who stand for ALL of us and not for themselves. It is no longer your establishment party, and Sarah is just the tip of the iceberg."

"From your lips to God's ears." as the saying goes. But if you and your "sisters" are going to "take over the GOP" and put it on a decidedly conservative course, you'd better hurry the hell up.

At this point, your "champion", Sarah Palin (whom I fully support, by the way) is so far behind the little tin god with respect to popularity, as to be virtually invisible as far as a truly strong contender with a very high probability of winning in 2012.

Truthfully, I don't know what y'all are gonna do...but you'll sure as heck be fun to watch!

You go, girl(s)!!

Absolutely not! As stated, I am a Palin supporter. When I look at the rest of the republican field, she stands so far out in front of the rest of them, that it is a wonder they even remain hopefuls.

That said...there is a huge amount of PR work to be done on Ms. Palin's behalf if she expects to win in 2012...and I think its very much up to the conservative ladies in this nation to start making noise. Lots and lots and lots of noise.

We men haven't done such a hot job to date, have we??
