Sarah Palin’s one cool customer

Millions of mothers can relate to Palin

By Michael Graham

Tuesday, September 2, 2008

ST. PAUL, Minn. - And you thought the Clinton-Obama convention was a soap opera.

Enter stage (far) right: The Sarah Palin Chronicles.

John McCain’s VP choice was already the fastest-breaking curveball American politics had seen in a generation before this Reuters report:

“The 17-year-old daughter of Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin is pregnant, Palin said on Monday in an announcement intended to knock down rumors by liberal bloggers that Palin faked her own pregnancy to cover up for her child.”

“Faked” pregnancies. Teen sex. Government cover-ups. It’s like a bad episode of “Desperate Housewives,” except Gov. Palin is much hotter than Marcia Cross.

And she’s been the nominee for less than a week.

For normal people who don’t surf the fever swamps of the DailyKos and other liberal Web sites, the reference to faking a pregnancy has to do with a story invented by some lefty blogger that Trig Palin - Sarah’s newborn son who has Down syndrome - is actually the illegitimate son of the governor’s oldest daughter.

This idiotically offensive slur was demonstrably false - it took me less than 60 seconds to find a photo of a painfully-pregnant Gov. Palin from earlier this year - but pro-Obama activists like Andrew Sullivan and even some mainstream media outlets jumped on it.

And now, with the news of Bristol Palin’s pregnancy, the 2008 presidential campaign officially has more plot twists than an episode of “Lost.” It also has two legitimate stars: Barack Obama, descended from the heavens to heal our souls and deliver our nation; and Sarah Palin, who wandered in from the Alaska wilderness with a rifle under one arm and a baby in the other.

If you're sick of all this media BS, you can give it back to them in spades by volunteering at your local McCain/Palin office or online.

Make a leftwing reporter cry.

All the way from Alaska, she comes to America as The Girl Next Door.

Great line.

The libs are terrified of this woman. They had their script ready to deal with Romney or Pawlenty and McCain threw them a curveball. Now the knives are out and I say bring it on. Let them attack Sarah’s family. Let them talk about her credentials while running their own smoke and mirrors candidate. Let them count on that grinning idiot Joe Biden to blow her out of the water in a debate. Let Shrillary’s minions denounce her. The best antidote to this stuff is Sarah herself. When she doesn’t match the white-trash Quayle image they are trying to paint, America will see it.

That’s priceless. And the Palin part is true.

I’ll take the one with the gun and the baby. As Obama is about to find out, it’s Tougher in Alaska.

Actually a big chunk of the the Hillarites(?) are really enthused by this with the exception of the one-issue abortion crowd.

Sarah Palin Born on a mountain top of Alaska
The greenest state in the land of the free
Raised in the woods so’s she knew ev’ry tree
Kilt her a b’ar when she was only three
Sarah, Sarah Palin, queen of the wild frontier

Fought single-handed through many a war
Till the enemy was whipped and peace was in store
And while she was handlin’ this risky chore
She made herself a legend forever more
Sarah, Sarah Palin, the woman who knew no fear

She went off to Congress and served a spell
Fixin’ up the Government and the laws as well
Took over Washington, so I heard tell
And she patched up the crack in the Liberty Bell
Sarah, Sarah Palin, seeing her duty clear

When she came home her politic’ing was done
And the western march had just begun
So she packed her gear and her trusty gun
And lit out a-grinnin’ to follow the sun
Sarah, Sarah Palin, leading the pioneer

Sarah Palin would have mounted the Terminator’s head on her office wall.

I saw the alien Carville on LK last night, and his teeth were a'gnashing something fierce. I was expecting lasers from his eyes! They absolutely hate her, because she's a pork-busting politician, a game-eating hunter, and a baby-keeping woman. She is anathema to liberals, and she's causing them to out their core hatreds for all of America to see.
