Posted on 08/29/2009 6:23:00 AM PDT by vg0va3
Nonetheless, when the history of the whole misbegotten health care reform effort is written, Sarah Palin has to be given credit for stopping it on a dime and the snotty liberals who underestimated her should be held responsible.

And they will be held accountable by the opponents of the Left.
He got to use the word meretricious. What a great writer
Hellooooo Andrea Mitchell. What say you now!
No! Death panels was a Lenny Bruce black-humored kind of line and she proved herself far hipper than the terminally square liberals who didnt get it. And who started an ill-conceived war on the phrase which most of the country, when the facts came out, saw as meretricious or ignorant on the liberals part with good reason. And caused ordinary citizens to turn against the whole cause of health care really it should be health insurance reform. (Editor needed for this para)
, Liberals should have responded the way my friend Joe Conason (and a few other non-snotty liberals) did, by pointing out that we already have death panels of a sort: the ones manned by the insurance companies who ration and deny coverage for the sake of their profit margins.
“....snobbish disdain for Palin, who, whatever else you think of her, is one cagey operator...”
She doesn’t have to be ‘cagey’ she is who she is. Case of projection here.
The pressing issue of our time is energy independence, because there is an inherent link between energy and security, and energy and prosperity. Alaska will lead with energy. We will prove that you can be both pro-development and pro-environment. After all, no one loves their land, clean air, water and wildlife more than an Alaskan! We will protect it!
Americans must look north to the future. For security, for energy independence, for our strategic position on the globe Alaska is the gatekeeper of the continent.
We are here today at a changing of the guard. Now, knowing how much I love this state some still choose not to hear why I made the decision to chart a new course to advance the state. It should be obvious. It is because I love Alaska this much that I feel it is my duty to avoid the unproductive, typical politics-as-usual lame duck session in ones last year in office. How does that benefit you? With this decision I will be able to fight even harder for you for what is right and for the truth. And I have never felt that you need a title to do that. So, as we all move forward together, let us vow to keep championing Alaska and to advocate for responsible development and smaller government and freedom. - (former) Gov. Sarah Palin
That’s incredible. A liberal columnist giving an honest analogy without using lies, deflection or liberal spin. This guy deserves a free lunch.
In the first battle in Palin vs. Obama, Palin has won. Get used to it.
Hopefully, most liberals will continue to underestimate Palin. Fortunately, even this nitwit still spouts most of the rest of the the liberal banalities by the end of the article, so even he still has a long ways to go before he has his head fully removed from his arse.
Sarah Palin kept referring to “death panels”.... That is what is ruining this socialist push for “free health care”
Dick Morris went further saying the entire health care bill was a death panel. We see all the horror stories each day from Great Britain. The other day a man in UK collapsed three weeks after his appendix was taken out. He was rushed to the hospital and they found his appendix still in there
Sarah Palin got her revenge for being forced from office by liberal bloggers filing bogus ethics charges. One of those bloggers was a male day care worker...pre kindergarten
“Free lunch” or, as we all know, lunch paid for by someone else.
That sentence is a keeper, but liberals are good cultists who “only follow orders”, responisbility is a bad word in their book.
Palin only tapped into what the MAJORY of the USA believes.
The left is upset that the majority of the USA was able to bypass the state run MSM.
(hence Obama trying to usurp JUST the internet. Cable news and other state dominated outlets are safe)
Perhaps done by a cagey leftist!
A very neat word: meretricious. Probably appeals mightily to the snooty liberals. Their lives are quite the example.
