In some of the comments on that article, people were campaign her to Goldwater with the idea that the same thing that happened to Goldwater would happen to Palin. The big difference between then and now in the nature of the media available to people. Back in Goldwater’s day, the MSM was the ONLY game in town. The left controlled the message! Not so these days. Sarah has the ability and the technical capability to by-pass the media and go VFR direct to We the People! The left knows this and that’s why they and the RINO GOP establishment have all the knives out! But it won’t work - We the People are onto their game!
Every time a conservative with potential gains prominence, the country club crowd will try to slap him/her down.
True, the media game has changed but the viciousness of the Ruling Class continues. They still think they can find a way to control: view their reactions to the tea parties and Christine O’Donnell.
