Maybe...there are powerful forces who detest Mrs Palin.

I figure she can’t do any worse that what we have now, so why not. In the best case she defeats communism in our lifetime, which would be a high probability knowing her.

I’d post a long, well thought out response but this thread is going to be pulled if the humor-free Mod is on duty because the word “ass” is in the title. I just don’t feel like wasting typing these days.

You say there is a fake tea party organization trying to draft Sarah Palin for the Senate? who is behind this? Could it be liberals trying to get Sarah away from running for President?

Rick Moran: Palin Shows She Can Still Capture ‘The Moment’

Posted on May 04 2013 - 7:08 PM - Posted by: | Follow Stacy on Twitter!

Rick Moran is no supporter of Governor Palin’s. He even includes that fact in this article where he states that he “isn’t a fan of her politics.” He either doesn’t like know her politics, or he likes importing foreign energy with big corrupt government at the helm, but I digress.

He does have the maturity however, to disagree with her while still respecting her. Over at the PJ Tatler today, he wrote:

Political oratory is a dying art form that few are good at and even fewer master. But since her arrival on the national stage in 2008, Sarah Palin has proven to be a practitioner of a very special brand of oratory that has its roots in the plain speaking prairie populists of the late 19th and early 20th century. Fighting established interests, damning the elites who they felt were responsible for the terrible rural poverty of the time, prairie populism swept through the heartland, roiling politics and giving a sense of empowerment to people as they battled the east coast bankers and monopolies.

Palin, who gave a rousing, enthusiastically received speech at the NRA convention in Houston yesterday, has what all good orators have; the ability to capture the moment. There are several elements that make a good orator but one of them is being blessed with the gift of being able to connect in a visceral way with their audience. Palin captures the moment by capturing her audience, speaking to them on a plane that other politicians can’t reach. She holds them in the palm of her hand so that they feel one with her — a bond she obviously shares.

Liberals complain she feeds the resentments and petty biases of her audience. But they miss the point. Palin articulates what ails America largely because all other politicians tip-toe around what the American people are truly concerned about. And she does it in a way that everyone can understand and feel at a gut level.

Republicans have been complaining about President Obama and the Democrats using the Newtown tragedy in a shameless, exploitative way to serve their gun control agenda. But Palin took a different tack:

Sarah Palin said Friday that the elite media would never let a Republican president get away with what Barack Obama has done in his push for new gun laws.

The former Alaska governor recalled that the national press “tore apart” George W. Bush for using “fleeting images” from Sept. 11, 2001, during his 2004 reelection campaign.

At the National Rifle Association’s annual meeting, Palin slammed Obama for flying the grieving parents of the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School on Air Force One and then “making them backdrops” at rallies.

“That same media is now the reliable poodle-skirted cheerleader for the president that writes the book on exploiting tragedy,” she said, wearing a T-shirt that said “women hunt.”

Palin insisted that all Americans felt “despair, sadness and absolute anger” when they saw what happened in Connecticut. She said everyone should care more about those getting gunned down every single day on the streets of places like Chicago and New York City, but that shouldn’t guide public policy.

“Now, emotion is a good and a necessary thing. But we have politicians exploiting emotion for their own agenda,” she said. “We have well-meaning Americans who are desperate to respond.

Note that she clearly separates the shameless politicians who exploit the victims from “well meaning Americans” who respond emotionally. Rather than complaining about “low information voters,” she invites those Americans to share her contempt for Obama and the Democrats.

I encourage you to read the entire piece here.
