Palin Vs. Kerry (And MoveOn.org)
IBD Editorials ^ | July 15, 2009 | INVESTORS BUSINESS DAILY Staff

Politics: John Kerry, replying to an op-ed Sarah Palin wrote on cap-and-trade, suggests the Alaska governor "check the view from her front porch." What she sees from there, senator, is energy wealth going to waste.


The political death of Sarah Palin has been greatly exaggerated. In a devastating op-ed in the Washington Post, Alaska's governor exposes the cap-and-tax fraud that has nothing to do with earth's temperature and everything to do with government control of the economy.

She also exposes the stealth socialism ambitions of the Democratic left and once again points out the availability of abundant "shovel-ready" resources under America's soil, off America's shores and even in America's rocks.

Judging from the reaction from Sen. Kerry and the political arm of George Soros, one must ask: If Palin is spent as a political force, why is everyone on the left so worried and talking about her?

Kerry took to the ultraliberal Web site Huffington Post to object to Palin's description of "the president's cap-and-trade energy tax" as "an enormous threat to our economy." In Alaska, she wrote, "we understand the inherent link between energy and prosperity, energy and opportunity, energy and security."

Kerry, who opposed the Cape Wind project off breezy Cape Cod because a wind farm capturing energy from ocean breezes might spoil his view, went ballistic. In a thinly veiled reference to Tina Fey's "Saturday Night Live" skit, he repeated the warm-monger mantra that the "global climate change crisis threatens our economy and national security in profound ways" and that "Gov. Palin need look no further than the view from her front porch in Alaska to see how destructive this crisis can be."

Poor John Kerry, it must kill him to know that not even some Dems were willing to vote for his stupid ass in 2004

I think so. I thought he was a former NFL star with moves like these.

Why didn't Kerry just respond back in the Washington ComPost?
Conservatives don't read HuffPo anyway, and this is just chum for their liberal readers. Nobody's mind is being changed here. So why did Kerry even take the time to write this?

****MoveOn.org began e-mailing members Tuesday, asking them to fund a rapid response ad blasting Palin's op-ed.****

I read the Palin article almost the exact time it was published (it was posted here). Then the next day I peeked at the comments section because I knew the left wing nuts would come out of the woodwork. Sure enough most (like 90%) of the liberal posts were a solphmoric as can be. It's funny that those are the people who constantly lecture us conservatives on how "intelligent" they are. It's as if they believe that hating Jerry Falwell qualifies these people as mega intellectuals. It's no surprise that these Beavis & Butthead wanna-be's got their proding from moveon.org.

To be honest, he probably did better than I would have with that ball. I’m a total uncoordinated clutz. At least I don’t have news cameras following me around.

I’d love to see if he has the balls to “debate” her face-toface......but we all know the answer to that little tidbit.

I posted this on another thread. Does anyone think it has potential?

I have an Alinsky idea. Why not use their rules against them. What are the reporting laws governing donations to moveon.org? For instance if everyone uses a credit card to donate 1 penny to moveon.org, the administrative costs would be astronomical. Not only are the costs prohibitive, but an electronic record of donations is established for audit purposes.

SarahPac on the other hand is allowed up to $200 USD for unreported donations.

Can we kill them with their own rules?

We could if they followed their own rules- but they don’t. Hence all the tax cheats in the administration.
