What Really Makes Sarah Special

What Really Makes Sarah Special
© by Anthony James

Much has been said and much has been written about the remarkable and at times seemingly inhuman levels of accomplishment achieved by Sarah Palin in her brief tenure as governor of Alaska. How she succeeded in so many different endeavors where her predecessors had failed. How she not only did what needed doing, but also went after the criminally complicit scoundrels in her state and fitted them all for jumpsuits. How she did all of that in a little over two years during which she also ran for vice president and had a baby.

Love her or loathe her, there is no arguing how uniquely remarkable is that story alone. As improbable and worth telling as is all of that, that is just not what makes her most special.

To get to the heart of what really makes this amazing woman a “one-of-a-kind,” “after-her-they-broke-the-mold” standout, you have to really understand why she got involved in things political to begin with. Raised with a strong sense of duty, an enviable sense of right and wrong, and a moral compass that always points true North, Sarah saw that there were things that badly needed doing which nobody else was bothering or daring to attempt.

Completely unlike any of the lifelong “suck at the public trough” fixtures who roam the halls of our political institutions with a horribly misplaced sense of entitlement, Palin understands intrinsically that our Founding Fathers never intended that We The People should end up as servants, or worse still, ATM machines, for an elected class of our “betters…,” for a cynically conceited and concentrated cabal of “rulers.”

Sarah knows without being told that this constitutional Republic, the elegant genius of which has resulted in our blazing like a beacon of freedom, prosperity, and hope to the entire world for centuries, simply cannot survive an entrenched elitist elected class of permanent professionally self-prepetuating politisaurs.

While even these truths about Sarah Palin mark her as distinct and different from the vast majority of our Beltway denizens, we are still only discussing facets of what she knows, bits of her personal knowledge which she undoubtedly possesses, but which are not what make her so uniquely, so wonderfully different. What sets Sarah Palin so far apart from the herd of pols is also what set George Washington apart. It’s what set Moses apart.

None of these people wanted to lead. It was not a driving ambition or lifelong goal of any of these historically special individuals to eventually take up the reins that they did. They did it because they knew that if they didn’t, what was needed either would not get done, or would probably get done wrong. Not only is this truth about all three of these historically remarkable individuals a precept they have in common, it is quite likely also what set apart and made so amazingly special what it was that they eventually accomplished.

Sarah Palin does not want to spend her professional career in a suit, surrounded by handlers, set upon by a sea of microphones every time she steps outside her door. She would be extremely happy to spend the rest of her life raising her children, loving her grandchildren, hunting caribou and fishing for salmon in the great wild North. Most assuredly, her consuming goal is not to subject her family to the scrutiny, abuse, and degenerate vileness that we all know will ensue should she announced her candidacy for president. She simply knows in her heart that there is a job that very badly needs doing, which America can no longer survive seeing done so very badly.

She knows that hers is a skill set, and a base of experience which makes her uniquely qualified to seize the reins of this nation that precisely this point in time; as the stakes are just this high, as the consequences are quite this dire, and as the specific needs expressed by the very problems that we face seem so perfectly tailored to exactly her strengths and work-habits.

What really makes Sarah Palin so very special is that she really doesn’t want to go to Washington DC for the next four years to set about the Herculean feat of undoing the savage damage which the current administration will leave in its rancid wake. It’s just that she, like so many of us, understands that either she will do it or the very great chance exists that it will not get done. At the very least, it will not be done as well or as quickly as she would do it, and time is very much of the essence here..

While it is not likely, I sincerely hope that Sarah Palen reads this. Even though I do not know her personally, I’m sure I know her a lot better than I have any right to. Like the rest of America, I have watched for three years as she and her lovely God-fearing family have been dragged through a crucible which would have reduced to ashes any other group of people I have known in my life. Yet there they stand, smiling, loving each other, and loving America with all of their hearts.

If you’re reading this Sarah, please run. You’ll be so busy that four years will fly by in the blink of an eye. Your family will be the richer and the stronger for the experience, as will your country; a country which turns to you in this, its hour of greatest need. And while those four or eight years will indeed fly by, it is all of time, and the indelible history of the greatest nation on Earth which will forever embrace what it is that you will have done, who you are as a person, and what it really is that makes you so very special.

A.J.

Would be great if Palin sees this. At least she deserves to hear this viewpoint... it isn’t something she probably gets alot of.

the remarkable and at times seemingly inhuman levels of accomplishment

She's VOLTRON!

which are not what make her so uniquely, so wonderfully different.

I thought she was "just like all of us".

Even though I do not know her personally, I’m sure I know her a lot better than I have any right to.

Was this written by that creepy stalker guy?

It makes sense to me, I could have lived with her family being given a lot more privacy and personal space.

Palin is authentic and that’s what the naysayers can’t stand about her. Honestly, she can’t do any worse than the elites who’ve been running things are doing. And, if I’m right about her, she’ll do a whole lot better.

Amazing how many of the first replies to this great article on The Lady are from the Anti-palin drool slugs. Seems like they're getting antsy... like their time may be running out...

“but also went after the criminally complicit scoundrels in her state and fitted them all for jumpsuits.” .............................................. Now ask yourself, what DC insider Politician has the gonads to do that and follow through with it? Congress is the asylum for the criminally complacent. :^(

No, it's that she'll serve because she's needed, not because she needs the power or acclaim.

She has all that now, and couldn't care less.

This blog is right on the money. That’s exactly how I think she views herself. And that’s exactly why she needs to be the next President of the United States.

” there is no arguing how uniquely remarkable is that story alone.”

We need her story spread over tens of millions of voters who have heard only the made-up stories and criticisms against her. The electorate should know of her accomplishments as governor.

It’s been awhile since we had a president in office who was there for what they could do for the country instead of what they could get personally. As much as I admired Bush, there’s no hiding that the whole family are predominantly professional politicians.

I will. I just used a few of their vapid bleatings for "bumps" when I had just posted the article. See, even the inbred boneheads are good for something.

LMAO!!!

Thank you, JA. The author states it subliminally, likely to not "turn off" secular voters who have a phobia about such things...

...but did you notice that the three examples of reluctant leaders that he used all shared one other facet in common? All 3 were led to their calling through prayer, by God. That's what I really love about Anthony James' articles. As good as the obvious stuff is, it's the hidden gems that make them really sing.

He usually says as much in the spaces between his words as he does with the vebiage.
