Letter: A review of Palin’s resume: She’s no idiot
The Glenwood Springs Post Independent ^ | July 24, 2014 | Floyd Diemoz

Posted on 07/25/2014 8:46:13 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

The July 15 cartoon in the Post Independent showing Sara Palin as an impeachment buffoon reminds me of the recent rebranding of her as an “idiot” by progressives and their media disciples following speeches she gave at a conference in January. An idiot is a mentally deficient person below a moron or imbecile with an IQ under 25.

Those who over the past six years continue to call her nasty names should admit her down-to-earth resume and life experiences at the time she was placed on the Republican Presidential ticket in 2008 far exceed Barack Obama’s paper-thin resume.

Sara Palin: Elected to her hometown City Council (1992); Elected mayor, cut property taxes 75 percent (1996); Elected president of the Alaska Conference of Mayors (1999); Appointed to the Alaska Oil and Gas Conservation Commission, and was the commission’s ethics supervisor, then chairman (2003); Filed an ethics complaint against a member of the Oil and Gas Commission, who was chairman of the state’s Republican Party, who resigned and paid a fine; Joined in an ethics complaint against Alaska’s Republican attorney general, who resigned; Defeated the incumbent Republican governor in the gubernatorial primary; Defeated the former Alaskan Democratic governor, at the age of 42, becoming the first female and youngest governor in Alaska’s history (2006); Strived to clean up Alaska’s good ol’ boy fraternity with an ethics reform bill, one of her first projects as governor; Reduced expenses 80 percent from the previous governor’s gubernatorial expenditures; Promoted oil and gas development in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge; and is a remarkable fisherman, hunter, homemaker and mother, all this along with a sense of humor.

She was unmercifully vilified precisely because her accomplishments were substantial when compared to Sen. Obama’s. It’s a mystery how she accomplished so much when so many continue to believe her a low-IQ idiot. With her success in rooting out dishonest and unethical politicians there is little wonder that our media despises her call for our president’s impeachment.

The zealots on the detached side are probably beginning their offensive against any female who might be inclined to run against their sweet Hildebeast.

A resume more impressive then either Hillary or Obama. Palin has accomplished things, something neither Hillary nor Obama can say.

She has accomplished every goal modern feminism says you can’t do burdened with a man and children, WITH the support of her husband and family. She’s also an outspoken Christian and not beholden to the feminist Left.

And the Left hates her for all that.

I was talking with a guy at work today.

He’s a pretty determined liberal. He started off running down Sarah Palin, but after I defended her it seemed he lightened up significantly.

It was interesting. Maybe he was just being polite, but it seemed to me, more than that.

a few other things...she’s held actual jobs, paid a mortgage, raised kids while working, owned several small businesses, belonged to a church, and has been active in her community.

She started her political career in her folks’ kitchen not at the home of a terrorist. The only time she changed her name was when she got married, and her school and work records are all public. She’s even got a real birth certificate!

Just a few little things some really smart people haven’t done.

One of the nuttiest, most insane Palin-haters is Don Imus.

Don Imus show Imus behind the scenes it may be blocked now. It is a daily log written by his staff about the show and other things.

November 8, 2013 7:15:18 – The Boss reacts to Sarah Palin’s speech at the Billy Graham Birthday Celebration: “Is there any way that she could be put to sleep? If they put a bunch of scientist together to assemble the dumbest person in the world…they couldn’t make one more stupid than her.” An uncharacteristically measured response from the I-Man.

I know it's his thing to say outrageous things but he and his social crowd hate Palin and he was deadly serious. I heard it. I recall that it was Friday November 8, 2013 show. Why do people like Imus and his ultra liberal crowd hate? Palin is not the only one they'd singled out. And not a peep out of the public.

Ah.. it's just Imus, they say. There's a lot of nuts out there and leftist really do hate and fear her. Imus, et al. should be made aware of the doctrine of vicarious liability. Note: I welcome any excuse to post this outrageous behavior by drug-addled Don.

Went to the link, and the article was blocked out. In order to see the article, they wanted me to answer a question about medications I’ve taken. I reloaded the page several times, and there were different stupid questions each time. The only other option to read it was to share it via Twitter, or like it on Facebook. They wouldn’t even let you read any of the comments unless you had a Facebook account. I refuse to answer their dumb questions, and don’t do social network sites, so I guess it wasn’t an article I needed to read.

Don’t forget, she had the nerve to graduate from the University of Idaho and still aspire to national office.

If you didn’t go to an Ivy League college, all of which are on the East Coast, you will be automatically and forever branded an idiot by the media in the New America. Because we’re all equal. Except those who went to Harvard. They’re smartest and fittest to rule... well, let’s just say it... the smartest and fittest to rule over all you idiots who went to a STATE COLLEGE! In the west! Or the south. Or the midwest.

You get a pass if you went to Stanford or Cal Tech. But Harvard is still better.

And Eureka College is why they still manage to brand Reagan an idiot even after his genius has been vindicated by history.

I remember reading that her speaking was compared to Obama’s and Sarah scored at a higher grade than Obama. Of course this wasn’t paid any attention to by the MSM.

Can’t find it now but I had saved a post written by a cardiologist in NY and he said that Sarah was very smart, offered her high praise, and then said anybody who had the hostile media turned loose with them for hours on end could be made to look stupid by editing (Couric).

That Nicole Wallace and her buddy were out to get Sarah from the start. Whose idea that was we can only guess.

Plus, Palin even bucked her own party, when blowing the whistle on corruption, putting on the line her whole potential political career. How often do you see “politicians” willing to do such a thing? A leader who also governed, totally unbeholden to outside interests, whether Party machines, lobbyists, corporate donors, unions, special-interest groups, or even media pressure?

Palin remains one of only political leaders in the past twenty years that I genuinely hold in high respect and admiration.

A noble effort, Floyd, but facts and logic will have no effect on a liberal. You would have better luck trying to break concrete with a tennis ball.

They have tremendous guilt over promoting and having abortions. They see how this wonderful woman lived her beliefs, and embraced her son, a son who they thought and even voiced that he should have been aborted. In there hearts they know they are wrong. Sarah is a reminder of the lost babies that they are responsible for.

The problem with the Hildebeast is what has she accomplished as First Lady, US Senator and Secretary of State? She like Zer0 both have a legacy of underachievement. If the Hildebeast becomes President, what will be her obsession to take her mind away from the task of office. It will not be golf, like the present occupant. I predict it will be booze as she is already headed down that road.

By the way, where is that video of the Hildebeast staggering carefully up the stairs on the State Department’s plane in Yemen and falling flat on her face at the top of the stairs? Perhaps the cleanup of her image is underway to sanitize her history for her bid to the White House.

Most libs know nothing about her and never have listened to her. They rely on caricatures on comedy “news” shows and groupthink. They pretend compassion and tolerance but loathed baby Trig. I remember a picture of her in a national magazine, maybe Time, where her eyes were photoshopped to make her look goofy and cross-eyed. A VP candidate in a national magazine. Most Liberals have never progressed past petty, mean-spirited Junior High pranks.

Part of me loves her,and I’d love to see her become President, but she’s too much of a smart-ass to be a respected President.

She should sound more like the speech she gave after the Arizona tragedy years ago- that sounded dignified.

She was unmercifully vilified precisely because her accomplishments were substantial when compared to Sen. Obama’s.

While true, the real reason was much more insidious.

Sara Palin was vilified because she was a serious threat to become the first woman president.

Democrats have been ruthless in protecting the mantle of "First _______" for themselves. They want to be the party of firsts in all categories. First Black President, first Woman President, first Hispanic President, and so on. It began when Democrats ran Geraldine Ferarro as the first Woman Vice-Presidential candidate in 1984.

Look at how Democrats reacted when President Bush nominated Miguel Estrada to the federal DC circuit court in 2001. They vilified Estrada because they feared he would become the "first Hispanic Supreme Court Justice." Democrats won and Estrada withdrew his nomination. Democrat-nominated Sonia Sotomayor became the first Hispanic Supreme Court Justice.

Only Ronald Reagan's appointment of Sandra Day O'Connor to the Supreme Court in 1981 keeps the Democrats from a shut-out on the "Firsts" card.

Now, the pattern repeats with Sara Palin as she threatens the title of First Woman President.

I know a guy who barely got through high school say he hates Palin because she’s stupid.

I know another idiot who finally got a college degree with he was over 50. He so wanted to be a college professor. But he figured out a little late that being old with a degree and no experience makes a degree worthless. He, too, says Palin is stupid.

The political left should refrain from mentioning levels of intelligence. 99% of the Left come from the LEFT side of the Bell Curve. And intellectual maturity is arrested with the onset of marijuana use. If an adult acts like a 13-year-old, then 13 is the age that person started smoking marijuana.

Used to be Imus could say ANY outrageous thing & it came out funny, especially when he was being birddogged by McGuirk & McCord. He was pretty much equal opportunity when it came to politicians.

Then.....in 2007 Imus completely knuckled under to Al Sharpton & Jesse Jackson over the `nappy headed ho’s’ comment. Groveling would have been more dignified that what Imus did to curry their favor.

Why didn’t he unleash his outrageousness on those two & call them every name in the book, say come and get me coppers, and remind them he wore a revolver on his belt? Imus would have approached national-hero status if he did.

Haven’t listened to him since. Maybe Sharpton still has him paying `jizya’ through his Palin-bashing. Off the record remarks? Imus knows by now there ain’t no such thing.

Anyway, the uglier the ho, the bigger the Palin hater. IMO.

What small town woman mayor takes down the good ol’ boy incumbent Republican Governor of her own party? What other Governor as CIC of the only full-time A/NG has control over silos full of nuclear missiles and regularly gets high level security briefings from the Pentagon? I bet she been to more of those than Ø.
