George Will's savage attack on Sarah Palin shows GOP establishment is desperate
Irish Central ^ | May 30, 2011 | Patrick Roberts

Posted on 05/30/2011 2:53:55 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Conservative columnist and commentator George Will has slammed Sarah Palin saying she should not be trusted with nuclear weapons.

Will was speaking on ABC yesterday and his damning words,coming from the right, may give many people pause.

Here is what he said:

"Two things are infinite. One is the expanding universe, and the other is media attention to Sarah Palin, who is a genius at manipulating it. But she has several political problems. The first of which is there's no undecided vote in this country anymore about Sarah Palin. Sure, second, the threshold question, not usually asked, but it’s in everyone’s mind in a presidential election. ‘Should we give this person nuclear weapons?’ And the answer [in Palin's case], answers itself"

Will and other GOP heavyweights are suddenly running very scared that Palin is a legitimate contender.

She represents their worst nightmare, a grassroots candidate who owes the old bulls in the GOP nothing and who is prepared to say so.

Sarah Palin is actually looking better and better because of Will and others attacking her.

She is showing that she has the real handle on how to shake things up in America, even within her own party.

That is why Will and company are so scared.

I am pretty sure George Will has some sort of dirty nuke ramrod straight up his backside. Is there any person in Washington with a bigger stick up his tush?

David Brooks was admiring the crease in Obama’s LEFT pants leg, while George Will must have been admiring the crease in his right. Plus, Obama is a little bit black, so how exciting that meal must have been for the fawning fake conservatives.

That’s it. That want control of her as they want control of voters and our rights and Sarah is all about ‘We the People’. Amazing these guys are exposing themselves so easily - probably because they will have much to lose when Sarah is in the Oval Office. Thanks Sarah!

I am really getting tired of ‘insiders’ like George Will, Wm Kristol and increasingly often Chas. Krauthammer.

Us FR'ers / Tea Partiers are the Heterodoxy to these Insiders and the RNC.

They have been downsized, outsourced, and are irrelevant.

They just don't it yet.

Or they do and they are scared $H!+less as they try to maintain a power and control that was never theirs in the 1st place, we lent it to them, they screwed up, we are taking it back and not letting them be our voice...

Exactly! The left is conning the left and the supposed right doing their con job on the right. They both have been working together for years to keep ‘We the People’ down and they keep power. Upside down and communist bent.

And the ‘We the People’ voice is Sarah. Who spoke out loudly FOR her these past years? Not one politician but - We the People. We know our own.

If Palin wins the “Old Bulls” of the party will be neutered—and they know it.

It’s obvious that conservatives’ (actually I prefer the term “Constitutionalists”*) real enemies are elitist insider GOPers.

You expect Dems/Leftists to be enemies, and of course they are. But “Republicans” and “Conservative pundits” [puke] are supposed to be friends of the Constitution and conservative principles.

It’s clear now beyond a doubt that they’re merely the other puppet hand on the same entity.

Your a little harsh but correct in that we must not allow RINOs on the ticket. Actively getting Constitutional Conservatives in to the primaries is an absolute must. We are fighting for our country and its future, We have no need for moderates in this battle.

To say: Sarah Palin shouldn’t be trusted with nuclear weapons is a bit redundant inasmuch as....

SARAH PALIN IS HERSELF A NUCLEAR WEAPON...aimed right at the heart of the Establishment George Will and the rest of his ilk call home.

D-Day, short for detonation day, is November 6, 2012, boys. Don’t be late.

John Wayne says you lie. He is improperly holding the reins in his mouth! And last I heard,walking a horse up hill, its fine to lean back and hold the saddle horn while your picture is being taken, instead of leaning ahead into a camera. Sarah has more sense than you do.LOL.

She holds the reins wrong and no, you shouldn’t lean back and hold the horn riding uphill. That said, she’s been ON a horse, and I doubt Obama knows one end from the other of a horse. He’d probably mount backwards, and then complain the back rest moves around too much...

I have chosen my words to be a little on the “harsh” side to try to jolt some sense into people who are on the fence here. There is way more at stake than most sheeple know. I am, in my own way, trying to counteract the demagoguery of the left and motivate those on the right. The GOP has fought like “gentlemen” for far too many years. I feel they have incorrectly assumed the “best” in people, and have not fully accepted how lazy and stupid most voters are.

I agree, BUT she is leaning back while walking up hill to have her photo taken , or is that too much for you to gather?

I suppose you would lean ahead for the photo just to not hold the saddle horn and look like a gobbler.LOL. Point? Sarah knows exactly what she is doing, and very gracefully too.

They will go after her big-time. She’s breaking all the rules and it pis*es them off. I’m beginning to see an emergence of a “new media” campaign uncontrolled by the lame stream media. They have no idea how to control or direct it.

Sarah is much smarter than they give credit. She’s playing them like a fiddle.
