The Lesson in the Betrayal of Sarah Palin
Daily Thought Pad ^ | January 28, 2013 | Ask Marion

Posted on 01/28/2013 3:15:11 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

Recently on his radio show Rush Limbaugh discussed an article which stated that there is no respected voice in the national arena articulating Conservatism. Such an advocate for Conservatism is crucial to reversing the direction of America as Obama drives us toward socialism while low-info voters gleefully sing Kumbaya in the backseat.

Well excuse me for pointing out the obvious, but we had an extraordinary advocate for Conservatism and look what happened to her. Judas on our side betrayed her – sold her reputation for 30 seconds of fame and favor with the media.

Even now, folks on our side are still beating up on Sarah Palin saying – Palin has lost her appeal – Palin is unelectable – Palin wasn’t smart enough – Palin wasn’t prepared and etc. Really… Flashback: Media Reviews of Governor Palin’s 2008 RNC Speech and because of Sarah Palin, the McCain-Palin Ticket was leading until McCain decided to suspend his campaigning for a few days to go back to D.C. get involved in the bailout talks.

So, this is how we treat our heroes?!? Those that stand up?

Many Democrat Party politicians/advocates are immoral, liars and cheats. And yet, they are treated like super-stars by the media. Democrats have the backs of their associates, no matter what. For example: Democrats never rebuked Clinton for receiving oral sex from an intern in the Oval Office. They simply launched a campaign claiming that any man in Clinton’s position would have reacted like him. Think about that folks, Democrats and the media lowered the standard of national leadership behavior, and the overall national moral standard, to cover their guy...

I’d welcome your blog, but subject it to the usual criticism.

Fact is most bloggers just re-word stuff they read elsewhere.

Sometimes they simply copy it, no shame bloggers.

But the fact HERE is that if you want to promote Our Sarah,
you can find MUCH better sources than some mook’s blog.

If I did a blog it wouldn’t be Palin-specific, rather my take on the news of the day, etc.

NEVER will a blogger be required to excerpt HIS OWN material.

He wrote it, he owns it, he can post it.

When he does excerpt, he's looking for hits and somebody ought to beat him up for it.

I'll not dig up history to make of you a fool.

If you choose to be shown as a fool, you may do your own research.

I don’t know about this “fool” business. I don’t (can’t) keep track of individual FReepers as to our preferences. You like Sarah Palin? Hate her? Have done either/both for years? Who cares.

As for the other stuff, I am growing weary of your crusade. Continue if you must, but I find it boring.

You're the one who commented about it.

If the issue is boring to you, perhaps you would be well served by ignoring it. Or shutting up. Pick one.

Sarah Palin has served a very useful purpose (and she will continue to do so).

She showed enough people what useless prigs Republicans are. We have a clear path ahead now that we all know what Republicans are by the standard of how they treated her.

Useful information for the rest of us if we will just use it.

Thanks Sarah Palin.

I’ve heard many on this forum claim that Sarah is damaged goods and can never regain the respect of the country at large. If this is true, conservatism and a constitutional republic will never be restored, regardless of your opinions of her.

WHOAH!! Someone has his panties in a wad!!

Now back to the topic at hand.

Sarah Palin had the unfortunate quality of being what most conservative women are and you see how the libturds treated her.

Since they couldn't directly attack conservative women as a whole, they went after Sarah as if they were robotic wolves on steroids.

What is really sad though, is that conservative men did not stand up en masse and defend her.

Sarah doesn’t need to win an election. She just needs to come back on the scene and open up with both barrels. Tell the truth about the corrupt media and the effete elites who are attempting to take over this country. No one can motivate Conservatives right now better than she can. We are completely fed up and disgusted with the GOP establishment. They are the enemy right now and they know it. Primary them all.

IMO, Sarah's path back to relevance would be running for the AK Senate seat in 2014 currently held by a 'Rat. She obviously still has a lot of goodwill among movement conservatives, and should easily be able to put that seat back in GOP hands where it belongs.

Great article! Much truth to it. I can think of nobody that the liberals have attacked so relentlessly. The truly sad part was the RINOs that piled on like hyenas when they smell blood. Sarah is a true conservative that can connect with America. The left fears her, hence the need to try to destroy her.

True. Women as well.

Breitbart called the men who did not defend her eunuchs, and he was right. I think he should have included the women, I see a lot here who said nothing as she was ravaged by the left.

He did not mention those on the right who actually attacked her (see: humblegunner or FR), and fell in line with the libs. For them there is a special circle set aside somewhere for their misery.

Excellent links at the host page and an excellent article. I'm saving!

"Andrew Breitbart embraced the Governor as a fellow warrior in the long struggle against a detached and venal political/media complex. He lives on in spirit and through the work of those he inspired—including, but not limited to, those who report and contribute at his site."

As I was reading this aloud to Mrs. RQSR I realized I’d read this before. I was confused until I noted Rush Limbaugh’s name, but then became confused again as it morphed into some of our good FReepin’ FRiend Lloyd Marcus works.

The words, the thoughts all well said by two of the best IMO, but this site seems to neglect clearly identifying their sources appropriately.

I don’t idolize Sarah Palin, but I see her as one of very few people (unfortunately) with both popular appeal and conservative ideology. Who else speaks for us on at the national level? Darn few I say. Too many Republican politicians are working against us conservatives. We already know the Democrats despise us, but the Republicans are worse. They claim to be our friends, but they are constantly working behind the scenes to undermine everything we believe in. Sarah Palin is unfortunately one of only a handful of people on the national scene that I trust.

Maybe liberal women. But I know pleny of conservative women who supported her and still do and who HATE the GOP for what they did to her.

I am one of them. I will never forgive the GOP for what they did. Never. There is no way they can make it up to me and I know plenty who feel the same way, men and women.

No way. Going to the Senate would be an extreme waste of talent. Just ask Sen. Ron Johnson WI. No solutions to problems will ever originate in the Senate.

As far as relevance, Sarah Palin has never lost it. She is as relevant today as she was in '08, perhaps more so. Stay tuned, you'll see.

“Sarah is damaged goods and can never regain the respect of the country at large...”

Uh, I think not.

What in Hell is John Kerry then, but a traitor in the U.S.Senate?

It is shocking how Republicans voted to confirm him as SoS. (That SoS means ‘Secretary of State’, and NOT ‘Shit on a Shingle’ as most of us would suppose).

Good post 2nd....The idea that Sarah is finished is an eagerly desired dream of the left.... New ideas are at first ridiculed, actively resisted, and then accepted as if they always were supporters all along. .
