Sarah Palin At High Noon

By Lloyd Marcus

I just watched the classic movie "High Noon" (again). Gary Cooper played a brave sheriff who brought law and order to his town. As one woman said, "He made it safe for a decent woman to walk down the street". A recently released outlaw was coming back to town on the noon train to deliver vengeance against the sheriff who put him away. His gang of three arrived early to help their leader take out the sheriff.


Fully aware of why the bad men were in town, the sheriff could not arrest them because they had not broken any laws. Waiting is not illegal.

Desperate, the sheriff interrupted a church service to solicit help. After much debate, the ungrateful town folks declined. They even suggested the sheriff "get out of town" hoping the trouble would follow him. The sheriff contemplated their recommendation. He began saddling his horse, but something inside would not allow him to run away. Heroically, the sheriff faced the bad guys and won!

I thought of another strong, gutsy, bold, stand-on-principles hero, Sarah Palin, in her own modern day version of High Noon. Sheriff Palin rode into America Town on a white horse with conservative guns blazing and saved a dead McCain campaign. She brought hope to weary and battered conservative town folks and gave them a reason to vote.

Outlaw Obama and his posse, the hate filled liberal media/Democrat gang, came to town a gunnin' to politically eliminate Sheriff Palin. They ambushed her at Miss Katie Couric's CBS saloon. Though wounded numerous times, Sheriff Palin survived.

She bravely stood tall and rode high in the saddle while ungrateful, weak kneed Republican town folks ran for cover, hid in their homes and peeked nervously through the curtains.

Why are Obama and his gang so committed and desperate to destroy Palin? Could it be they recognize her destiny, like that of Moses, to set her people free? And why is she so despised by them? Obama's gang hate Palin for all the reasons we love her. Sheriff Palin is a good, decent and strong character driven conservative leader. Palin also believes in God. Such humility and virtues are as repulsive to liberals as showing Dracula the cross.

Something that sticks in the craw of many liberal women is that in their youth, they brought into the feminist rhetoric that women's liberation means no husband and family. Tragically, they find themselves aging and alone. Meanwhile, this conservative woman has it all: great career, fine family and a husband who loves and respects her. Adding insult in injury, Sheriff Palin looks mighty fine in her jeans.

Recently, the libs sent an old washed up gunslinger, the Letterman Kid, to challenge Sheriff Palin to a shoot out. Palin planted two bullets between the pathetic old dude's wrinkly eyes before he could un-holster his gun.

Despite Sheriff Palin's courage and willingness to fight, Obama and his posse rule America Town. They are in the process of taking over everything! Obama took over the livery stable and banned horses. While he and his posse continue riding horses, we town folks are forced to ride miniature ponies.

But in the spirit of what has made America Town great, an uprising is a brewin'. A huge conservative posse is building daily. Our first battle will be in 2010 to win back America Town's House and Senate. Then, in 2012, God willing and the creek don't rise, Sheriff Palin will lead us to victory in the battle of Little Big Washington DC. Years earlier, another great lawman cleaned up America Town, Sheriff Ronald Reagan.

After Sheriff Palin sweeps out the Obama gang, perhaps once again, we will be as what Sheriff Reagan affectionately called us, "a shining city on a hill".

Have I even brought up Romney here?
The universe is much larger than just Palin and Romney.
I’ve never understood these false dichotomies.

Who is going to be there to think up her answers next time Katie Couric interviews her? Or next time she has to debate?

FYI,following, a few paragraphs by Camille Paglia back in 08. Know who she is?

One of the most idiotic allegations batting around out there among urban media insiders is that Palin is "dumb." Are they kidding? What level of stupidity is now par for the course in those musty circles? (The value of Ivy League degrees, like sub-prime mortgages, has certainly been plummeting. As a Yale Ph.D., I have a perfect right to my scorn.) People who can't see how smart Palin is are trapped in their own narrow parochialism -- the tedious, hackneyed forms of their upper-middle-class syntax and vocabulary.

Many others listening to Sarah Palin at her debate went into conniptions about what they assailed as her incoherence or incompetence. But I was never in doubt about what she intended at any given moment. On the contrary, I was admiring not only her always shapely and syncopated syllables but the innate structures of her discourse -- which did seem to fly by in fragments at times but are plainly ready to be filled with deeper policy knowledge, as she gains it (hopefully over the next eight years of the Obama presidencies). This is a tremendously talented politician whose moment has not yet come. That she holds views completely opposed to mine is irrelevant

You're a liar and a punk seeking an argument to give you some semblance of credulity that anyone would engaged such a pusillanimous prick. You try to float fabricated numbers every time you're talking points have a gap in them. But you are amusing to watch as you work your agitprop putrefaction. [Prick = little nettle. merely an insignificant irritant.]

Victor Davis Hanson, who has met and admires Sarah Palin, gave a talk along these same lines at the Hoover Institution back at the end of the campaign which you might be interested in:

Obama, Palin and the Culture Wars

He talks about class, gender and education biases against Palin, among other things. It's really excellent if you haven't seen it, about 39 minutes of your time for the whole thing. You can select segments to watch.

Like Paglia, he's not fooled either by the elitist Beltway blather.

Loved part of his answer to one of the questions during the Q&A related to Palin biases:

"I've found more wisdom on 100 acres south of Fresno [his farm] than I have on the quad over there at Stanford".

Why am I supposed to be impressed by what a feminist Democrat has to say?
I just go by what I observe, and I’ve observed someone in Sarah Palin who is not a leading light among conservative thinkers.

I understand the mentality of those who want to continue John McCain’s work of pushing her onto America.
They believe that she possesses some electoral qualities, starting with her being a governor, and ending with her being female, and the her views on abortion fills the in between.
They believe they are being clever and beating the Democrats at their own game of identity politics.
They like how she looks on paper, and that is good enough for them.
Perhaps they would be on to something, except that her performance under pressure is completely lacking.
When it’s time for her to shine, she’s dim.
When it’s time for her to pick up the ball and run, she fumbles.
Her performance is uneven at best. Watching her in a debate or an interview, you never know if she’s going to give an incoherent bumbling answer, or narrowly squeak by with a passing grade. She never knocked it out of the park, that’s for sure.

I was there, right along everyone else, too.
Crossing my fingers, hoping she doesn’t blow it, and usually coming up disappointed, or relieved by a narrow miss.
And after a while, I had to give up on her.
George W. Bush’s public performances were bad enough, but compared to Sarah Palin, he’s a master orator. His debate where every answer was “it’s hard work” started looking pretty good compared to Palin’s performances.

I don’t want to have to go through that again. It is aging me.
And we shouldn’t have to.
Conservatives were once the guys with the ideas.
Now we’re just playing defense, trying to make excuses for the dimwits we have representing us.
It doesn’t have to be that way.
It shouldn’t be that way.
It’s time for that to end.
It’s time to go back to the era of Reagan and Gingrich when conservatives were the smartest people in the room.

Face it. Palin is now, today and yesterday, the smartest in the room.

Have you ever watched Wanna be a Millionaire? A stumped contestant can ask the audience for the right answer. It's amazing how right the audience is. I have yet to see them wrong.

My friend, believe me, Sarah has the audience in her pocket. The Democrats know this, but you don't, also amazing.

Sarah spoke to the troops at Camp Bondsteel in Kosovo today. There’s a link to video and a transcript at the bottom, but I got a real kick out of this part....

“Senator John Kerry makes this joke..I don’t know if you saw this...but he makes this joke saying “Well, shoot, of all the governors in the nation to disappear, too bad it couldn’t have been that Governor from Alaska.”

Well, when he said it he looked quite frustrated, and he looked so sad, and I just wanted to reach out to the TV and say “John Kerry, why the long face?”

If Palin is an unworthy candidate, then you won’t have nothing to fear about her being the Presidential nominee. The Presidential primaries are brutal and weed out unworthy candidates quickly. Just ask Fred Thompson and Rudy Giuliani.

You’re a frickin idiot.

The only reason McCain didn’t lose by 30 pts was Palin.

Palin was so popular she sucked all the air out of McCain’s campaign. McCain and Romney (the other RINO in waiting) have been attacking her since 7:00 pm on election night.

You are offering NOTHING but divisiveness. I smell a troll.

You’ve taken up 150 posts and not put forward a single candidate or put forward a single idea as a plank in a platform.

All you are doing is denigrating Palin. You are obviously a supporter for one of the RINO’s jockeying for position to run in 2012.

Either provide some substance yourself or get lost.

ROFLOL!

Good videos. Jon Carie would do well to never mention Sarah Palin again, he’s way outclassed and on the short end of intelligence.

Palin reminds me of George Bush when visiting our military. When amongst them and meeting them she’s relaxed and genuinely happy to be there, that can’t be faked.

Thanks for the heads up.

Youtube is probably the fastest download your going to find. Here’s a 44 second version with just the Kerry part. The audio is as good as it gets. A soldier in the audience shot the video on his cell.

Read the words again and then go to the video, it should help you understand what Sarah says

“Senator John Kerry makes this joke..I don’t know if you saw this...but he makes this joke saying “Well, shoot, of all the governors in the nation to disappear, too bad it couldn’t have been that Governor from Alaska.”

Well, when he said it he looked quite frustrated, and he looked so sad, and I just wanted to reach out to the TV and say “John Kerry, why the long face?”

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_RraEDle384

It was great the way the soldiers reacted, they clearly enjoyed her saying it, and they enjoyed her being there.

Just damn is right.

She's the single-best chance we have of not just taking it all back, but then making hay while the conservative sun shines, fixing the mess 0'bone-pimp has made. And some here just join Katie Couric and the Infamous 8 who screwed themselves in The House today, and blast away at her as though we should hate her too.

I do not get it.

Just damn.

Sarah Palin is a dim bulb.
She’s less articulate than George Bush.
We can’t afford people who can’t form a coherent sentence anymore.
Palin fails the most basic requirement of a conservative leader: the ability to make an intelligent case for conservative solutions.

When she said on national TV “No wonder young girls especially have such low self-esteem in America when we think it’s funny for a so-called comedian to get away with such a remark as he did,” that was the last straw for me. That is utter gibberish. One too many stumbling incoherent statements in a long line of stumbling incoherent statements from here. If conservatives can’t find ANYONE smarter than her to carry the message, then it isn’t a message worth carrying. We may as well pack it in and admit we’re the STUPID PARTY once and for all.

I don’t care what she ‘represents’ if she can’t even form a grammatically correct sentence. The conservative cause was SETBACK by years because of George W. Bush’s inability to communicate. We didn’t progress under Bush. We need a communicator. If not a Great Communicator, at least an Adequate Communicator. Palin is not that person, and can never be that person.

You hit the nail right on the head.

The omission of the common contraction "It's," from the start of that string of words means she can't communicate? She gave that great convention address with a bum teleprompter. I wouldn't be so obsessive/compulsive about grammar when the other prospective candidates are so uninspiring or tarnished. Sarah connects with the base.

Leaving off “It’s” is the least of the grammatical problems in Palin’s statement “No wonder young girls especially have such low self-esteem in America when we think it’s funny for a so-called comedian to get away with being able to make such a remark as he did and to think that that’s acceptable.”

We think it’s funny to get away with being able to think that that [Letterman’s joke] is acceptable? I can’t even wrap my head around what she’s saying. Just when I think I’ve gotten to the bottom of it, I find yet another condition lurking just below. Who is she criticizing? Letterman for telling the joke? Or the people who get away with thinking his joke is acceptable? Or the people who think that it’s funny to get away with thinking that Letterman’s joke is acceptable? What exactly is she trying to say?

The problem is more often than not, when Sarah Palin opens her mouth, something equally incoherent comes out.

Palin can’t offer policies like that. You know this. She can whip up a crowd with her shrill criticisms of 0bama and other TV celebrities, and create a media circus around her, but she’s not a serious individual and problem solver in the long tradition of American statesmen.

You have to be kidding. The rats always come up with grandiose solutions like Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid that promote waste, fraud and abuse with bankrupt financing. The American Clean Energy and Security Act that the rats got yesterday ensures expenive energy and high taxes for a problem that has not existed for a decade, i.e. global warming despite increasing carbon dioxide concentrations.

What problem do we have that wasn't caused by populism/socialism? Sarah can say that with the authority of Maggie Thatcher. Palin can say that when you find yourself just in a hole, stop digging! "It's," in a long tradition from Carter vs. Reagan, Giuliani vs. Dinkins, Cuomo vs. Pataki, etc. The left makes a complete mess. The right gets a chance to correct.

The prospect of possibly going up against 0bama with someone as incapable as Sarah Palin scares me.
Sarah couldn’t bring in the votes last time, and yet her apologists keep trying to find others to blame. We already know who wins when you put a ticket with 0bama up against a ticket with Palin.
Are we really going to try the same thing again and expect a different result?

“Stop digging” isn’t good enough.
We’re going to have to roll back the 0bama agenda just to break even.
We’ve still got a lot of damage from Johnson, Nixon, and FDR to undo. Not to mention George W. Bush. We still haven’t even fixed the education mess made by Jimmy Carter. Instead, Bush made it worse.

We’re going to need someone who can get people onboard a reform agenda. Bush couldn’t, because his ability to communicate and persuade was lacking, and he commanded very little respect on Capitol Hill because of it. So instead, if he wanted a legislative victory, he had to co-opt Ted Kennedy’s agenda. Palin would be even less persuasive, command even less respect, and be even less of a leader.

Palin’s entire political career is characterized by playing defense to her critics, and it would just be more of the same if she somehow got elected president. However, someone who spends their whole time playing defense can’t advance an agenda and thus isn’t going to get elected.

You are right dead on the money...We are on the same page...

My insinuation was just a personal check...Yeah, I should not have done that, but I had to know fo sur...

If Newt can weather the storm, then sure, some of his stuff he used to be about still resonates with me...

I recall a few things I kept scratching my head about in recent years about him...I speak in generalities at this time because I dismissed them as quirks, or spur of the moment idiosincracies that didn’t matter “too” much in the bigger scheme of things...

My biggest fault with him was he didn’t stick to his guns...He had a tremendous amount of support, even when the attacks on him and the Republicans in general were at their hieght...I attribute that loss also to what Tom DeLay did to my district when they went after him...

When you are right you are right...And no amount of BS is going to change things, if you just stick with it...

But all of that is water under the bridge...

You and I and many others are wondering the same things...Who will step up, when will the Republican party leadership get their collective heads out of their arses and stop settling for people who sound and look good, but cannot compete with liberal/socialists...

It is not going to get any easier in 2010 and 2012...

What is going to be telling, and I have yet to find the discussion on this, is that not only is the government spending money like mad, they just passed this latest bill yesterday that is going to tax us into oblivion...

The only respite is that I see the spending our future unborn generations future away, they are going to have to pay for it already, even after we are dead and gone...

How do you find enough people to represent us that are willing to die (figuratively, politically or even literally) to correct that???

I do not see a lot of people out there with the courage to do so...

You do not need to be a financial wizard to do and support things which will correct it...

I know why the media and the dumbocrats always ridicule Sara Palin. It’s because she’s not one of the Washington elitist, she didn’t go to an Ivy league school,and she’s not a progressive. She’s a real person who’s down to earth and thinks like most Americans regardless what the left says about her. By the way, I voted for Palin and Mcain only because he was on the ticket.

Don’t give me a list of who you dislike. Give me one name of who YOU think could win.

The attempt by some on our side to envent an 0bamaesque mythology around Sarah Palin is going to come back to bite us in the butt.

Elucidate, please.

Do you really think that someone who uses 'envent' will be able to elucidate?

"It’s time for us to admit that maybe John McCain doesn't’t have the best judgement after all."

We already knew that. And we also know Sarah prevented mclame from an embarrassing landslide.

I thought the statement was very understandable from a parent’s point of view...and having had two girls of my own!

Bush won 2 elections despite his so called “speach” issues and even Barak won despite his “I uh you know Hope and change uh my Musli uhh Christian faith” colloquialisms. So get over your self!

"McCain didn’t offer people a reason to vote for the ticket."

Oh yes he did....her name was Sarah.

The prospect of possibly going up against 0bama with someone as incapable as Sarah Palin scares me.

One simple question. Who do you feel would be a better candidate?

as a fan of McCarthy and McCarthyism I reject the analogy:

Thanks for the link. That is one of the funniest stretches of imagination I have read in a long time. What a ration of BS.
