Skip to comments.Palin Does Georgia: What Does It Mean?
Posted on 12/02/2008 1:50:52 PM PST by lewisglad
Palin's decision to blanket the state with appearances -- and the rock-star reception she is receiving -- speaks to two basic facts about the former vice presidential nominee: she is beloved by the base of the party and she has absolutely no intention of stepping off the national stage any time soon.
While Palin has been widely derided by many political commentators and many Democrats, it's hard to dispute that there is no more appealing face for the party faithful at the moment than her's.
Though few in the GOP base would admit it publicly, there is a significant weariness with President George W. Bush and, to a lesser extent, Sen. John McCain. Palin represents something totally different -- in the way she looks, the way she talks and in her résumé.
"She's a very, very fresh face for every Republican, and some independents, said Fred Davis, the lead media consultant for McCain's presidential race. "She is a breath of fresh air."
And, remember, that runoff elections are fundamentally a fight between the two parties' bases; turnout is a HUGE problem for both sides in runoffs so any politician who can provide a jolt of energy to the base -- a la Palin -- is a hugely valuable commodity for a politician like Chambliss
The interest in Palin from those who count themselves loyal Republican footsoldiers is compounded by the Alaska governor's clear desire to remain a player (and potential candidate) in the party for years to come.
She's been bitten hard by the political bug and is willing to endure long plane rides to stay in the national game," said Phil Musser, a GOP media consultant.

In other words, the drubbing you peckerwoods in the media thought you were giving her backfired bigtime.
That title being worded like that is insulting as hell, is the MSM still trying to degrade her even now?
Imagine the surprise in the PravdaMedia in 2012, if they would find Sarah Palin “revving up conservative the base” — and “the conservative base” is greater than 50% of the voters.
GO SARAH GO!
blanket the state? these writers just dont give up.
she showed up at 2 places while she was on her way to that governors meeting today. from what i understand they asked her to do it. it’s not like she went out of her way to intrude or step on anyone’s toes.
also, if youve ever been to Alaska from Nov-Mar, it’s not exactly a fun place. Intense cold, always dark, very depressing. So, I don’t blame her if she wants to get away every now and then.
Of course. They're scared of her.
Democrats in Alaska, such as the Dem mouthpiece Anchorage Daily are approaching derangement over Gov Palin’s popularity.
All conservatives need to understand that -- and not contribute to the sexualization (defilement) of Sarah Palin.
...OR ANY OTHER WOMAN.
Anyone know how to contact this Chris Sleazy and let him know he's a strongwomanaphobe?
Are they nuts. One thing the election did show is that many in the GOP "base" are very weary of President Bush and Sen. McCain and they are NOT reluctant to "admit" it.
-29 today. Smart critters are curled up in their nests. People are out and about as usual.
It means that she doesn’t want to see a filibuster-proof majority. These MSM clymers are stuck on stupid with this perpetual presidential horserace.
There are a multitude of bible verses that apply to Palin and how the world is treating her.
She’s a Godly woman, living her life as best as a sinner can, and she’s hated for it (2 Cor 2:14-17, Mat 5:14).
They don’t understand her, or us for liking her (John 3:19-21, John 1:5, Titus 1:15).
Jesus told us to expect this (John 15:18-25)
It is a nasty headline. Can you imagine the Post using that on a Dem? No way.
Alternate headline....”We’re scared sh@tless, Palin is here, and not going away”.
Palin does Georgia???
Like no one would notice the take on the famous porn movie featuring a girl’s name and a city. Good God, I never thought I could despise the media more than I do now.
