Ann Coulter: I Nominate Sarah Palin as Time's Person of the Year 2008
Time Magazine ^ | Thursday, Dec. 11, 2008 | staff

Posted on 12/12/2008 9:50:39 AM PST by lewisglad

Ann Coulter Conservative best-selling author

I name Sarah Palin for her genius at annoying all the right people. I haven't seen liberals so enraged by a woman since me. Once John McCain was nominated, the election was a snoozefest until our hero bounded out of the Alaskan tundra. Palin is wildly interesting, charismatic and charming, so Democrats fixated on her inexperience--meaning she is only five times as experienced as our next President.

Ron Paul Texas Congressman and 2008 Republican presidential candidate

Amid a horrific financial crisis, all we hear are calls for more of the money-printing, spending and subsidies that created this mess. So I choose my great teacher, Ludwig von Mises, champion of the Austrian School of economics, who taught us how a central bank like the Fed causes booms and busts and how to build prosperity through sound money and economic freedom.

Dara Torres First U.S. swimmer to make five Olympic teams

It sounds like a cliché, but in times of turmoil, stick with those who provide inspiration, comfort and love. That is what Oprah Winfrey has always done for me. Whether it is insight into the things I feel as a person, a woman, a mom or a citizen of this world, I always know where to turn when I'm confused or unsure.

Muhammad Yunus Nobel Peace Prize-winning economics professor whose pioneering Grameen Bank fights poverty with microcredit

I nominate Barack Obama. He has galvanized the people of the U.S. and inspired the whole world. Young folks everywhere see him as a symbol of hope. Amid all the terrible news about such calamities as the financial crisis and the food crisis, he stands out as the overwhelming good news. He can create history by setting the political and economic tone for the 21st century.

I agree with Ann. Sarah is the real deal.

That “naughty librarian” thing sends me every time.

At least Sarah made the final 4. But Time will surely go with Zero, or their subscriber base will go totally bonkers!

They should go around door to door and ask people if they’ve heard the good news.

I like Sarah as a role model for the right and somebody who can inspire everyday Joe's to get back into the game like Rush did for us in ‘94. However, I would like to see some “red meat” Sarah now that see isn't under McCain. I think she needs to have some op-eds on the bail-out(s). It would be nice for her to distance herself from having to support the AIG plan. I would also like to know what she thinks about the FAIR tax after campaignging for Chambliss.

I admire Dara Torres for what she accomplished, she shouldn’t have to turn to a knucklehead like Oprah for inspiration. She’s not part of the solution, she’s part of the problem.

I’m guessing a lot of that will be covered in the seven million dollar book deal she’s doing right now. (with a media tour in Iowa and New Hampshire afterwards of course :)

” I would like to see some “red meat” Sarah now that see isn’t under McCain.”

I would as well. I think Sarah has tremendous potential, but now she can step out of the (squat and hunched over) shadow of McCain and start conveying her own vision for America. She should not only write op-eds, but give speeches on the values of conservatism in an increasingly socialistic environment.

Until this above statement I was with Ann. Oprah did establish herself as caring, open, sincere, wanting to give others the benefit of her intelligence, etc.

Only now Oprah is in to “new age” religion. The study she is producing on satellite radio for “The Course In Miracles” with Marianne Williams, is just that.

Like “The SECRET” that she did/promoted on her show a couple of years ago. She is fostering the NEW AGE MOVENENT. Clearly. Also she loved OBAMA and I heard her say with tears ... “whatever it takes to get him elected ... we must do.”

She is entitled to her opinion of course. She is very influential ... so ...

Sarah is a terrific for the person of the year. 100%

I have to agree with Ann on this one. As I’ve said before, one of the reasons I like Sarah Palin is the fact that lefties react to her the way a vampire reacts to sunlight.

As good as Sarah is, there are truly two persons, or entities this year. They are the Republican party and the nation’s MSM which unwittingly combined to facilitate the likes of Obama gaining control of this nation.

Four or eight years from now, it will be known if they destroyed this nation or not. And thus they had the most impact on the nation, this time for the worst.

I emailed the NRA yesterday, and suggested that Gov. Palin be invited to address their convention on May 15-17th, in Denver. I’ve read they are expecting as many as 65,000 to attend during that 3 day period. The person who responded said that my suggestion would be forwarded up the line. I also emailed the March for Life organizers, and suggested that they invite Gov. Palin, no response from them yet. I’ve read that they are hoping for about 200 to 250,000 this year. I said in my email that if Gov. Palin attended they would get a lot more people to come.

You got it right, but I see it as a bonus. Granted when I first heard about Ms Sarah being a possible nominee, her beauty was just too easy to fixate on with my petty one track mind. However, after careful study her philosophy became much more attractive. I happen to be lucky enough to have a similarly beautiful and philosophically grounded woman love and respect me, so naturally I'm biased.
