The B---- Card

What the media will now do to Palin.
By Christopher Cook

The disgusting, savage onslaught that the Democrats and the media unleashed against Sarah Palin, her children, and her husband will, as has been said by many, go down as one of the more disgusting episodes in American political history.

And until the media, Hollywood, and academia are done revising history so that it never happened—that should take about 15 years or so—it will be remembered, and it will do damage to the press.

So how do they recover? How do they accomplish their mission in this environment?

They hate Sarah Palin with a burning passion, but they know they cannot continue attacking her children. There is already a backlash, and it would get a lot worse and more general if they were to continue.

She totally shut their calumnious, hate-filled mouths last night, with her historic and amazing speech. There's no way they can continue their assault so openly.

So how do they harm her without doing so in such a full-throated onslaught? How do they attempt to tarnish her in the eyes of the American people...

This was the treatment of Robert Bork, Clarence Thomas, Ken Starr, and Linda Tripp combined and condensed into a shorter period.

While I detest Cankles I would feel a lot better about her in the WH because she is a bitch. Obama lacks the fortitude to kick ass when needed and you cannot be CIC without that trait.

Just a hint might come in Oliphant's political cartoon today.

Until their messiah came along and drove them into a bizarre fugue state of religious ecstasy, the press loved Hillary Clinton. Senator Clinton is an undeniably strong women. However, she exudes neither motherliness nor sex appeal.

That's a double-tap, I think.

Well, that’s somewhere beyond disgusting. Also, it’s vintage Oliphant, so I guess I shouldn’t be surprised.

Every time she narrowed her eyes and flashed that little grin during her speech last night, I was a conquered man. A stammering fool.

The “bee-atch” tag won’t stick because she has love in her eyes, not the empty, soul-less stare of Hillary or the sneering visage of Michelle...

I know that feeling well.

Oliphant's cartoon is the libs' view of who Sarah is: a gun totin' backwoods mama with unruly children!

Oliphant lives in his own separate world.

His "caricature" bears no resemblance to the woman we saw yesterday.

HA! Wow, who was it the other day who talked about the naricissistic hysteria of the media and the left?

Oliphant et al are going to serve up this election to us on a silver platter. The knife is still in their gut from last night and they still don’t realize they’re bleeding to death.

It isn't Sarah they hate. Its us. Its Sarah this week. It'll be someone else next week. But its really us they hate.

When I see the oliphant cartoon all I can think is, I'd love to put Todd Palin, this cartoon, and the Oliphant POC in a room together for 15 minutes.

One of the monikers I have seen thrown around by Palin bashers is “Ididabroad.” I actually like that one.

I looked up “Media Bias” in the dictionary, and found that Oliphant cartoon as the exemplar. The cartoon may be the single best tool against the biased media ever published.

It’s so clearly and outrageously “over the top,” it’s also a terrific argument aimed squarely at middle America the makes it abundantly clear why they should vote for McCain/Palin.

That is exactly right. The real question is how do we fight back? They have been waging total war on us for decades, but in an effort to avoid being as hateful as they, we do not wage total war back. How do we keep our goodness and yet fight back the way we need to?

Oliphant’s cartoon has no humor to it at all. It’s really offensive. I mean, REALLY offensive. Humor has to have some basis in reality. No connection here.

Man, that is a TERRIBLE political cartoon. Even for a reader on the left, what the heck is funny about it? It’s just a rant with some bad pictures - not a drop of humor.

Heh.

That’s a “boy, that’s stupid” “heh”, not a “boy, that’s funny” “heh”.

SHHHHHH! Don’t tell them that they are rapidly working themselves out of jobs as their rating fall and newsrooms downsize. If they keep this up soon they will have to go back home to Nowhereville USA where they will have to live among us hicks again who will never stop pointing and laughing at them!

Yes it was disgusting but was it supposed to be funny? If this guy is getting paid to be a humorist he is committing fraud.

The best way to fight back is use their leftist tactics against them. They don’t know how to respond to that and will usually respond by screaming “Nazis, Nazis!” I’ve seen it so many times. Protest Warrior is good at using leftist tactics against the left. I assume they are still around.

Oliphant is a shrill idiot. He used to draw Reagan with a horse face and wrinkles.

That is Oliphant’s most offensive since he did the blatantly racist hatchet job on Sec. Rice. However, it is a dead on mirror of “progressive” opinion. This election has already been nastier than ‘04. I look forward to getting out of the US for a while and contemplating nothing more controversial than my garden.

"It isn't Sarah they hate. Its us. Its Sarah this week. It'll be someone else next week. But its really us they hate. "

Actually, they DO hate Sarah. Not because of Sarah herself - they don't know her - but because of what she represents. She represents a proudly self-reliant, proudly faithful, proudly American woman from a small town who won't kowtow to the "wisdom" of her obvious superiors in the liberal elite, and who, in fact, disdains them. She knows all about the liberal/uber-feminist stance on issues, and she doesn't subscribe to one bit of it. They simply cannot believe that she even exists, let alone that she's wildly popular. It is so far from their worldview, so close to what Reagan was, that they despise her - because for them Reagan meant powerlessness and irrelevance, even belittlement. She is a complete shock to them, like a Cat 5 Hurricane Sarah hitting them out of a clear, blue sky with no warning. Cognitive dissonance, that's what this is for them, and they ain't dealing well with it.

Disgusting but not quite as bad as Oliphant’s infamous portrayal of Condi Rice.

I think history will remember Sarah Palin as 1 part Ronald Regan, 1 part Teddy Roosevelt, 1 part Margaret Thatcher 1 part Sophia Loren and 1 part Winston Churchill. She may be destined for greatness.

Won’t stick. Palin has a sweet smile (which she knows how to use), a harmless accent, and looks like the smoking hot librarian that made the boys sweat.

Yeah. I gotta crush on Sarah.

People don’t get crushes on B***ches.
