Skip to comments.Sarah Palin: The Rise of the Renegade
Posted on 08/17/2009 4:38:13 PM PDT by Bratch
Although completely unknown to the world east and south of Juneau one year ago, two words on Twitter by Sarah Palin sent the president of the United States in a panic to the op-ed page of the Sunday New York Times in opposition.
It should have been a great week for Newt Gingrich. He said last week there should be questions about federal bureaucrats running this thing; there should be questions about something so heartbreaking as the death of a loved one being footnoted in an indecipherable bill hundreds of pages long; there should be questions about euthanasia. Gingrich is their idea man and the press has been listening to his ideas and responding now for 20-some years. But this time he was passed over and ignored, because Sarah Palin, Citizen and Renegade, echoed these sentiments in a short, singular declarative sentence on Twitter.
One of the major networks began its coverage of the protests at the town halls last week with a commentary about Palins brief Twitter message, darkly suggesting that these demonstrations were un-American and were instigated by Palin. Then, seen through an airport window at the end of last week, Fox News, which supports Palin and opposes the ObamaCare plan, presented the story with a bright picture of Palin at the upper left top and Obama in a submissive scowl to the right and below.
In both cases, for and against, Palin was provided as the original force.

Two words on Twitter? Sarah hasn’t used twitter since she resigned.
Palin is a significant global political figure.
Obviously these people have NO clue about the Internet..its FACEBOOK NOT TWITTER.
Palin-Bachman or Palin-Hunter in 2012. Or after the next American Civil War. Whichever comes first.
My Girl bump!
I will have to agree with Rush when he says the left tell us who their biggest threats are in the way they go after them. Look at what they have tried to do to this woman and her family! She is definitely a thorn in their side.
Newt’s time has passed. It’s time for him to graciously stand down and let a new generation of conservatives like Palin, Bachmann, and Rubio lead. These new conservatives are in-your-face conservative, they’re not backing down from the leftists, and they definitely don’t give a damn what the New York Times think about them. This is EXACTLY what we need right now because the days of working with Dems and “bipartisanship” are over. Conservatism works every time its tried and we need leaders who can articulate our message. Newt’s suggestions for Palin reeked of elitism and typical beltway thinking.
third party or not exactly
Understood. Count me in.
