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.
Well I’m kind of concerned that Arpio is threatening her with that gun on his tie.
President Sarah Palin ... get used to it.
That was great and very motivating! Thank you.
My point exactly!
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.
What’s wrong with Sarah Palin??...she’s not a communist...
Did he really? I wish I had heard that.
“Shes not a RINO?”
Not no but hell no!!!
Nothing any rational person, without their own political agenda could see. That’s basically ‘it’. She stands in the way of ‘their’ plans.
“shes not a communist...”
I KNOW! Isn’t that great? The more the leftloons hate her, the more I love her.
“Well Im kind of concerned that Arpaio is threatening her with that gun on his tie.”
I saw him wearing that on hannity last week when the left was going berserk about “civility” and I just cracked up!
