Rush and Bernie Goldberg on Palin Derangement Syndrome
Rush via Conservatives4Palin ^ | March 19, 2009 | R. A. Mansour

Posted on 03/18/2009 11:30:05 PM PDT by SolidWood

Brian72 has provided us with an excerpt of an interview featured in the March edition of the Limbaugh Letter. Rush interviewed Bernard Golberg about his latest book, "A Slobbering Love Affair: The True (and Pathetic) Story of the Torrid Romance Between Barack Obama and the Mainstream Media."

RUSH: I know there is a contempt; Joe the Plumber was one of the most illustrative examples. Here you've got this poor guy who's minding his own business, an Obama rally ends up next to him. So he asks a question. And it was not a question that was pre-approved. It was not an approved question, period. And so the Democrats go into action with the assistance of the media to destroy this guy.

GOLDBERG: Correct.

RUSH: They look into his private records at the state. They find out where his tax liens are. They do everything they can to destroy this guy's reputation -- while at the same time they are concerned as hell that we might be monitoring phone calls from terrorists in Baghdad and elsewhere who might be planning attacks on the United States. But it's clearly fine for them to go out and destroy an Ohio citizen who dared ask a question of Obama that might embarrass him or expose one of his ideas that he was trying to cover up. And there was no compassion for what was done to this little guy-- and yet the liberals claim to stand for the little guy.

“They hate the fact that she has five kids, they hate the fact that she named her kids Trig and Track and Willow and Piper. Sophisticated people don’t call their kids Trig and Track”

no that’s not really it. Their problem is that these are cool names and conservatives are not supposed to give cool names to their kids. They should be named “Ezekiel” and “Gertrude.” People like Sarah are ‘supposed’ to look like the church lady and her husband is ‘supposed’ to look like Boss Hogg from the Dukes of Hazzard.

but the liberals *need* conservatives to look like that. They love the fat guy that does his corny little dance at the RNC. They then say “now those old men want to control YOUR body!”

And it’s true. There are a lot of conservatives whose image can be used as a weapon against our ideas. Why bother debating when it’s easier to use a bad picture?

When Sarah Palin gave her Vice Presidential nomination acceptance speech, I felt this thrill going up my leg!
We need more women like her in politics, and everywhere.

There are many things that I do understand but the one thing I don’t understand is why women would throw themselves at the feet of the Messiah as they did with Hitler. And no matter how bad the economy gets, they would still vote for Obama, feeling they are more comfortable with Obama and very uncomfortable with Palin. What makes so many women ‘uncomfortable’ with Palin? Abortion! Is it really that simple?

it’s not really that simple. After a very long campaign with Hillary as a possible prez, they were offended by McCain for picking someone out of ‘nowhere’ just 2 months before the election.

The cheap fake in Cobras post(2nd from bottom) however is not only tacky, but very poorly done.

Yes, Sarah is gorgeous. But what makes her so beautiful is her mind and heart... and with so many real pics of her, there is no need for denigrating fakes.

I agree the fake is not complementary.

what makes her so beautiful is her mind and heart.
Maybe we could post some MRI or ultrasound images of them.

I kind of lean toward thinking her smoking hot body, beauty queen face, long mane, and fashionable form fitting wardrobe might be a factor too. Mother Theresa had a good mind and heart also, but she ain't on my babe list.

If she were a flaming Marxist liberal airhead... I couldn't care less about her outer appearance. Would you?

Palin is so lovely because she is the perfect combination of beauty, brains and heart.

You are beginning to see the and maybe to understand the great wisdom of the founding fathers when they decided it was not a good idea to give women the responsibility to vote.

You can see PDS at work on a daily basis, whether it’s in the MSM, individual blogs, or those adding their stupid, and often vile comments to items about Palin. PDS has now lasted over 6 months, which is the criteria used by the American Psychiatric Association to determine if something is a real mental illness or just something that resolves itself after a short time.

What the hell is “the right to be voted” mean? If it means the right of a women to hold elected office then I suppose anything up to the level of PTA president for the local school would be ok.

GOLDBERG: Right. Having worked at CBS News for 28 years, I realize that the coin of the realm, the thing they hold most dear, isn't decency. I was asked so many times about somebody new in the newsroom: "Is he smart?" That question came often. They never asked, "Is he a good guy?" or, "Is he a decent guy?" Intelligence is the coin of the realm for liberal elites in the newsroom. And they didn't perceive her as intelligent, so therefore, they hated her. Couple that with her conservative politics and the fact that she has five kids and liked guns, and you knew they were going to try to destroy her.

One does not have to be a frequenter of media newsrooms to know that the left.values intelligence over decency. I think the basic "why" of this phenomenon is perhaps suggested in this previous post:

The real fundamental difference between liberals and conservatives is the absence of or the belief in God. Liberals essentially reject God because they are committed to playing God. All of the rest of the belief structure, all the posturing of concern and commitment to society, all of the convolution of the language, all of the rejection of a rational discrimination, is nothing but a rationalization allowing the liberal to play God. This is the oldest and gravest sin known to the Judeo-Christian tradition. All of the hate, intolerance, and vilification of Christianity (read Sarah Palin) is a visceral reaction to the frustration they encounter from conservatives as they play God. Ann Coulter got it right in the tagline to one of her books: "they would be God." The ultimate example of playing God is the issue of "choice." Fundamental to the Judeo-Christian heritage is respect for human life because it is a creation of God. Abortion, even more than slavery, is the ultimate in playing God, one declares his transcendence over God's creation and in the stroke of a knife becomes God himself.

"Decency" is fundamentally a moral value. In other words decency, relative to indecency, is good. It is a moral good and it is morally better than indecency. This in turn implies that there is a standard for judging relative decency which standard pre-exists the entrance of of the liberal onto the scene and it is a pre-existing standard which is immutable. If one is out to play God, one must reject such standards-as atheists energetically reject the 10 Commandments-because it restricts the God players ability to play God.

So the liberal substitutes "intelligence" for decency because he subconsciously believes that he is God, and, not surprisingly he unconsciously or even consciously believes that he is smarter than everybody else and that his solutions to problems that he perceives are better than anyone else's.

The liberal is a little bit like Mae West who, when a female acquaintance expressed admiration over a diamond ring on May's finger saying, "goodness what a beautiful ring," replied, "goodness had nothing to do with it."

You are right. Someone I had thought was a friend went postal over two things I said. One was that I said “that’s your opinion” when she declared “there is no God”. The other was that I said “that’s intolerant” when she said she said she hated to drive to her brother’s house because she had to go down a street with a lot of McCain signs. I was supposed to apologize for these offenses of not valuing and respecting her views. I just couldn’t do it. So friend no more. They are nutz!

Sarah has to spend the next 3+ years really reading, studying, learning the policy stuff COLD because that is what the media are going to NAIL her on. I mean literally crucify her with it.

Sarah is certainly intelligent enough and while this stuff bores most normal, healthy, emotionally balanced people (a/k/a Conservatives) she has to become something of a "wonk" to get through a campaign. She can hire all the consultants she needs to become the most informed person on the planet--a feminine Hillary.

She must beat them at their own game . . . and they will not be expecting her to have a handle on the "issues" and they will have to completely retool their attack plans. It'll will send their heads spinning.
