Skip to comments.Our Sister Sarah Palin's Anti-Elitist Charm
Posted on 09/20/2008 4:57:30 AM PDT by 4BoysMom
I KNOW Sarah Palin, and so does my wife.
Neither of us ever actually met the governor of Alaska, but we grew up with her - in the small-town America despised by the leftwing elite.
One gal-pal classmate of my wife's has even traveled from New York's Finger Lakes to Alaska to hunt moose with her husband. (Got one, too.) And no, Ms. Streisand, she isn't a redneck missing half her teeth - she's a lawyer.
The sneering elites and their mediacrat fellow travelers just don't get it: How on earth could anyone vote for someone who didn't attend an Ivy League school? And having more than 1.7 children marks any woman as a rube. (If Palin had any taste, her teenage daughter would've had a quiet abortion in a discreet facility.)

I’m with you on that... Fresno State is my alma mater!
The elites, as they gaze down at us from their self erected ivory towers, seem to forget that the vast majority of Americans did attend state schools, and are thrilled that one of us is succeeding in shining the light on their arrogance and hypocracy. You go girl!
Small town life is certainly not for everyone, but for those who it's intended there's nothing better.
America has not seen this type of leader since John F. Kennedy and Ronald Reagan. A leader that captures our imagination and inspires us to dream and be great. A leader with a view that America is truly a great country. A shiny city on a hill.
Go, Sarah. Show the world who really lives and works in the USA and keeps things humming along.
AMEN! Harvard and The New York Times.
Out of the park, Ralph!
Even back during the days of the Founding Fathers, John Adams and Thomas Jefferson fought over this. Adams and Alexander Hamilton thought there should be a professional class of politicians, while Thomas Jefferson favored ordinary citizens running the government.
Here in Mississippi, despite the reputation we had for being a bunch of racist yahoos (Democrats like James K. Vardaman, Theodore Bilbo, and Ross Barnett), Mississippi politicians are actually rather mild-mannered and bland. We prefer our public servants to be professional politicians, going to Ole Miss/Jackson State, being in a prestigious fraternity (Sigma Chi/Alpha Kappa Alpha), going to Ole Miss law school, having connections to the politically powerful in Washington as Pages/Clerks/Chiefs of staff, being State Representatives, and eventually getting promoted to elected office. This system makes for excellent Representatives and Senators who can take orders (Thad Cochran, Roger Wicker, Trent Lott when he's not in charge of anything) and for winning big government contracts, but makes for horrible leaders. That's why the only President we've ever had was Jefferson Davis.
Personally, I can't stand that Mississippi politicians are so "polished". We rely on Government pork too much to boost our economy.
A "maverick" State like Alaska (along with wild west States like Colorado, Wyoming, and Arizona) makes for improbable stories of ordinary people doing extraordinary things.
It's so nice to be able to enjoy a little touch of nature, right on your own bookshelf.
The Ivy Leagues are important in their own minds.
I had an uncle who went through Yale all the way and taught at Michigan State for over 30 years.
He said the only difference between the Ivy’s and a decent state school was the degree of difficulty getting in.
Harvard is the PROBLEM!!!!
YES, indeedy. You got it. That ivory tower bull hockey is not convincing. I disahree with him on Bush II but I totally agree on Bush I not finishing off the Revolutionary Guard and definitely on that criminal Clinton, but his problem wasn’t from the Ivy League school he conned them into admitting him into.
McCain is the real deal and so is Sarah. AUTHENTICITY is the quality, not artifice like Obama. The man and woman of steel is what this country needs, not someone who bends with every breeze and gets tossed and turned with every breaker.
History Channel ran a great piece on Alaska last weekend. Check it out - they may re-run with interest high.
Only one thing though: we don't want nuanced, "sophisticated" people to be President, because their elitist attitude makes them woefully "out of touch" with real people concerns.
I’ve been saying all along that Sarah will appeal to the blue collar workers in all the battleground states. My father owned a manufacturing company in PA. The first day of deer season may as well have been a paid holiday. Why do the dems always pretend to be hunters??? Kerry looking stupid and Hillary claiming she hunted. All the dems accused Sarah of being a pander to the women, I think she speaks volumes to the Hillary supporters in the big battleground states, woman or not.
Leftists are so parochial.
I remember Barbara Streisand from many, many years ago, on Hugh Hefner’s tv program. She couldn’t put a sentence together and had no tv presence. She was a high school graduate, with no college, but she could sing. She still can’t put a proper sentence together, but she can sing and raise money for democrats.
I left California for Idaho in 1979. When I reported for work my first day in Idaho Falls, ID, the office was deserted except for a few secretaries. When I asked one of the secretaries, "where is everybody", she said "It's opening day of deer season".

Many people who live in big east or west coast cities i.e. libs have a dim idea of what goes on in the rest of the country. I’m reminded of a statement Kareem Abdul-Jabbar made when he found out he’d been drafted as the number one pick in 1969 by the Milwaukee Bucks. Farmers! He’d been drafted by farmers. Yes, that’s right, Milwaukee a city of more than half a million people was populated solely by farmers. I knew then that if a reasonably intelligent person like A-Jabbar could have a misconception like that, there must be millions more who thought the same.
Fact of the matter is that many of us out here in Flyover Country are more familiar with their dens than they are with ours.
All us hayseeds HAVE been to the city, y'know...
Que the pictures of "The Great ObamaNation" (Blessed be his name) looking down his nose as U.S..
That second photo may be one of the main reasons that Governor Palin is hated with such venom.
9 out of 10 babies discovered to have downs syndrome are aborted. Planned Parenthood and “Tiller the Killer” probably see photos such as this as a threat to their revenue stream.
Always follow the money...
Something I've long suspected. Also, it's funny that colleges judge themselves by the quality of their incoming product, i.e., freshman SAT scores, not their outgoing product.
