Skip to comments.Kathleen Parker: Sarah Palin, from pit bull to mama grizzly
Posted on 07/13/2010 9:42:03 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
Sarah Palin, the ubiquitous enchantress of the disenchanted, may not have been ready to lead the free world back when John McCain anointed her as his running mate. But she's left rubber on the road that leads to fame, fortune and a new feminine mystique that drives certain men and women wild -- in very different ways.
For what it's worth, I get a kick out of Sarah. May I call her Sarah?
She and I apparently share a certain genetic predisposition to annoy all the right people. These would be the folks who take themselves and their ideologies a tad too seriously. Thus when I was promoting my book, "Save the Males," I wore an aggressively feminine suit -- pink with a bow in back -- just to irritate hard-line feminists, who, without bothering to read the book, would hate it on sight.
I happen to hate bows, but it was worth it.
Likewise, Sarah knows just what drives us all nuts and, instead of changing her tune, she turns up the volume -- and triples down. Don't like her little red shoes? She'll add a red leather jacket. Got gloss?
This woman is not to be feared or loathed. She is to be taken with a grain of humor and a dash of admiration. A different version of Madonna, she's a public relations machine who manipulates public perception with well-timed and, recently, sophisticated messaging.
In the nearly two years since she became the first female Republican vice presidential candidate, Sarah has morphed from a pit bull with lipstick to a mama grizzly. Grrrrrrrr.

Kathleen Parker? Isn’t she the one that uses the picture from 20 years ago next to her column?
I think she needs to knock off the Diazepam a few hours before she writes. This column meandered more than a Kennedy on St Patricks Day.
I also thought it was pro Sarah.....
Funny...I don't see that inoculation coming thru my TV screen...
Kathleen is so desperate for male attention that she has to do a show with Elliot Spitzer. How pathetic is that?
Ahh, I like morning Palin threads. No annoying Pissant comments.
This woman is a dynamo, and they will never admit they’re scared sh**less over her.
Kathleen Parker: "[I]t is increasingly clear that Palin is a problem." "Parker ... says something publicly that many of us have thought privately
but lacked the courage to say out loud - Palin should step down:"
"Parker: Romney raised bar on freedoms"
Kathleen Parker: "If Kennedy's speech was an important landmark in American political history,
Romney's was surpassing. With heartfelt humility and poetic eloquence,
he tracked the nation's struggle with and for freedom."
“The genius of Sarah’s message, whatever it is, is that it doesn’t matter what it is.”
So, her message is irrelevant, then? Sorry,I didn’t get the pro Palin angle in this piece.
KP is finally figuring out Sarah isn’t going to shut up and go back to Wasilla!!!LOL
It ain’t ALL just Romney...its the Rinocratic Oligarchy...ANYBODY in DC is scared of her, scared of her message...and scared of We the People....Romney is a symbol of the Establishment Oligarchy.
No. Mitt Romney is a symbol of the anti-Reagan RINOs,
and unnatural borne citizens from Mexico who think they can be President,
and is a symbol of RomneyCARE, gay marriage, truthers, and fascism replacing freedom.
I am CONVINCED that her credentials are sufficient and I AM SICK TO DEATH of the media campaign against the superficial and irrelevant aspects of her and her claim to our attention.
The MSM needs to begin assessing Governor Palin in the sober and professional manner which she CERTAINLY deserves and which they NEVER hesitate to apply in their assessment of lesser and obviously flawed ‘candidates’.
Good idea. Wrong planet.
The MSM has this pathological, crying need to trump-up all sorts of BS about Gov. Palin as an individual and a politician. THIS is NOT professional or constructive never mind that it is unethical!
When they are finished covering themselves with s%$#, how can anyone take them seriously? Journalists who obsess over Gov. Palins personal life/attributes, or who cant be objective and ethical in their assessment of Palin as a political figure or potential candidate WILL BE TUNED-OUT!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hey MSM . Get serious or STFU!!! I am heartily sick of it already and the f&^%$#g campaign did not even begin!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
G R O W U P !!!!!!
I see the advertisement for News Max on tv, they mention Kathleen Parker as one of the contributors. I would only use Newsmax in the outhouse at the cottage if KP is part of it.
She is a freakin Democrat that voted for Obama, I say she should come to the same end as Obama.
Parker is such a caddy $itch!!
I think Anita Loos said it best
