Allahpundit has not been complimentary towards Palin from the get go and at times does go off the deep end when it comes to her.

I’m beginning to wonder if Going Rogue won’t outsell Levin’s masterpiece.

2009 will go down in history for excellence in conservative writings.

I wouldn’t be surprised. She said the left was harping on her to produce Trigs birth cert!! To prove he was indeed her son, and she did! So why on earth would zero;s be any different??

Well, there is a question in people’s mind. What’s wrong with that? How come we can’t ask the question, without being branded nuts by the liberals and their allies.

I understand some people on our side become nervous about this.

Up to a couple of months ago, the same was true with global warming. Look at where we are now.

Really now! On the main, this was a very good, very solid interview. Fifteen seconds worth of the BC in the midst of 20 minutes of interview is hardly sufficient to indict Palin as a ‘birther’, IMO. She makes a valid point: there are elements of the public for whom this is still an issue, and it should be fair game in the public discourse.

It’s time to take back the country. And, Sarah Palin may well be a big part of that process.

Like I said before she answer the question well and if the media tries to use this against her it will backfire. Red Steel conveniently left out the part where Sarah compared the Trig truther issue to birther issue. Basically saying that if it is fair to ask for Trig’s birth certificate then it is fair to ask for Obama’s. I think she made a good point. She didn’t give them ammunition; she gave them enough rope to hang themselves.

I’m surprised Sarah didn’t give a more neutral answer to the question posed given how controversial the birther issue is.

"Controversial" to who? The lying sewer known as the MSM? Obots? RINOS? Moonbats and other assorted leftists? Ask me if I give a damn about what any of them think.

She can't lose any more points with that crowd, so she may as well speak her mind. She's built that way, anyway.

Get used to Sarah coming straight out with the plain, unadulterated truth. It's what she does, and it's who she is. She doesn't speak "nuance" or politi-speak, like most politicians. She speaks the way the people speak, which is why we love her.

Well, the looney left are always saying that Trig is not Sarah’s baby..that ridiculous rumor still exists today, so I dont blame Sarah for wanting answers on Obama and his birth. Good for her, she has nothing to fear, screw the left

Political correctness dynamic in society has ALMOST everyone worried if their “view” will be accepted, which allows those who want to hide truth succeed. This is soft tyranny.

If you have forensic evidence concerning Obamas concealed birth details, you are branded a “nut?”

That does not work with patriots. All the more maddening for the left.

Soon the truth will out. And Palin knows this as well. What elese could she say.She knows the tryth will come out and also knows that she will be on the right side of the issue. Sarah is a very saavy woman.

She doesn’t give in, which is one of the reasons the left attacks her so ruthlessly.

I’m sure the left assumed she would be like most Republican politicians. Call them a mean name and they sulk into a corner sucking their thumbs. That’s not Sarah at all, she one tough lady.

I PRAY she’s wearing her flame retardant suit.

She will do fine. She's not encumbered by the hangups that politicos have. She can easily shoot back pointing out the whackos in the media who went digging through her trash for dirt and saying her son Trig was not her baby. She has plenty of ammo to smack them with.

The right isn't afraid of the media, but the pseudo right is. That would be RINOs and other liberals.

The right has always had the truth on their side. When a politician absorbs conservative principles and makes them their own, they cannot be cowed by the running dog press.

Sarah is showing the rest of the Republican political class how it's done. Many will experience major personal realizations watching her, and will find their own courage, through truth. Some won't. We will know them by how far they stray from the new benchmark being set by Sarah Palin.

I have no problems with her answer, I just know how the media is going to use this against her either by twisting her own words or branding her with the “birther” label.

Hell, I hope this opens up the floodgates and forces Obama to make a mistake, or at least sways public opinion even more.

As a Palin supporter I obviously want the public to learn about her, her background, her record and her character without the prism of media manipulation clouding the issue.

Given I’m a huge supporter of Sarah, I hate seeing her get drugged through the mud and as I’ve said a few times on this post, Sarah is usually VERY good at not giving the media anything to use against her.

As a side note, considering how irrelevant he is, can you imagine Crissy Matthews head exploding tomorrow if he finds out about this interview?

The entire interview was wonderful. I had no idea she was even doing an interview today. People have to hear the ENTIRE interview, including the question on illegal immigration, which might have been missed during all this “birther” stuff. First of all, she NEVER even mentions Obama being born in Kenya, she says that it is a fair question. Look at all the crap she has to deal with with idiots who believe that Trig is not her son. AllahPundit is a hater, always has been, of course the RomneyBots are all out in droves. She did not expect this question to be asked, but she answered it just fine, ALL of his associations need to be called out. The best line “What the heck is Obama doing to us” I think we all know what he is doing Sarah and it scares the hell outta me

Expect Demint to make a similar, but more vague inference, soon. That’s the developing pattern. Not sure what it means, whether Demint actually agrees or it’s a calculated thunder-stealing, me too thing. And, before I get flamed by the ardent Demint fans, I actually like the guy so far.

Haven’t delved into his record as thoroughly as I have with Coburn, though, not yet. Coburn didn’t fair so well in my estimation.

I’m a big admirer of Sarah Palin, and would be proud to vote for her in a Presidential election. She is one tough lady. That doesn’t mean there can be no alternatives for me, since she hasn’t committed, and likely shouldn’t, so early. Call it my personal VP vetting effort assuming she does, lol. If she doesn’t, I don’t want to be in a position of being misled.

Probably because she's not a politician - she has no problem with speaking the truth. IMO, it's not controversial - the MSM and others have been told not to talk about it. Where's the ammo on something they don't want to touch to begin with?

The media really screwed themselves when they went after her children, Americans simply do not believe in that.

A more appropriate comparison would be McCain...

Oh the other hand we have Congress holding a special session declaring McCain eligible when a few Dems questioned his eligibility. According to the media that obviously did not happen since they do not report it.

No honest person can say Sarah has not damaged Obama and I hope this opens up the flood gates on him. Yet we all know the media will use this against her, even if it means twisting the story to fit their agenda.

Allahpundit is always looking for ways to trash Sarah Palin. He mentioned her comments on BO’s BC, but not on illegals.

Allah is hardly a “rightie.” If Michelle Malkin were not signing the checks, she would be among the first he would trash.

People have to listen to the ENTIRE interview. She talks about everything, I think she was kinda caught off guard with that question, but the way she answered it was perfect. She put it into perspective with all the crap she has had to deal with this past year. Everything should be fair game, you know why the media wont bring this up, because they dont want to remind people that his birth certificate STILL is an issue. They wont touch this with a 10 foot poll. Also, she does bring up illegal immigration, I wish people would discuss that, it was very enlightening..a great interview. I really dont get why Michelle Malkin would allow this Allahpundit guy to continue to work for her, he is such a hater

I'm not worried about Sarah handling anything the left uses to go after her. Thought the interview was great! It leaves Sarah a chance to comment more on the birth certificate issue, that is, if the leftist media even mentions this interview. The media just might ignore Sarah's comments since they would be afraid attacking her for them would bring on more comments on the issue from Sarah and/or others.

If Sarah is attacked for her BC comments, I hope she opens up more and mentions the following:

That she finds it interesting that the media had so much to say about the frivolous, thrown out court cases she faced as Governor of Alaska, but ignore the cases that are still pending across the country concerning Obama’s constitutional qualifications to be President. Especially when his birth certificate is all that needs to be unsealed to end all the court cases and assure many Americans that he is constitutionally qualified to be Commander in Chief.

Even within conservative circles the b/c issue is controversial. Look at some of the eligibility threads on here or comments made by Coulter/Levin etc on the issue. It is controversial.

Sarah’s message needs to get out to the public without media manipulation or made-up “news” report intended to end her political future.

We also know the media will try to destroy anyone who can do harm to Obama. With so many in the MSM believe it is their job to protect their messiah, Sarah is the #1 target on that list.

We have to remember most of Americans are not news/political junkies like we are. They get their news in 30 second sound bites, usually slanted to fit the networks agenda of the day. The media will distort her answer until she’s taken Orly’s position as “Queen of the Birthers”.

I fully believe we will need Sarah and others like her to clean up the mess Obama and the Dems will leave this country in. She will need all the public support she can muster if she chooses to run for office (I pray she does).

The ultra left, Obot’s and RINO’s aren’t who Sarah needs to impress. She needs independents and common sense Americans those whose only pay attention to candidates around election time.

I simply hate giving the media anything to use against Palin. Like it or not it’s reports the MSM presents who most Americans use to base their opinions; and those are who Sarah needs to get on her side.
