When you ask Barack Obamas admirers what they like most about him, you will typically hear of his personality traits before any specifics about policy. Obamas fans say that he is so smart cool-headed articulate To point out that in terms of policy, Obama isnt that different from most other conventional Democratsor even that different from George W. Bushdoes little to dissuade the presidents most ardent champions, and any failure to live up to liberal ideals does little to change Obamas current popular status as liberalism personified.
Sarah Palin is the Republican Obama. When you ask Palins admirers what they like most about her, you will typically hear of her personality traits before any specifics about policy. Palins fans say that she is warm-hearted down-to-earth a good mom To point out that Palins actual politics arent that different from most other conventional Republicans, or in some ways, not much different from Obamas, does not dissuade the former Alaska governors most ardent champions. And any failure to live up to conservative ideals fails to change Palins popular status as conservatism personified.
Obama and Palin represent opposing versions of the same identity politics. Based primarily on personality, love, or hatred for the other, it is politics driven primarily by emotionnot logic. If you dont believe me, try telling an Obama-loving Democrat that he is no different from a Palin-loving Republican or vice versa. Even the soundest reasoning will do little to quell the forthcoming rage.

Dont know who he has been talking too, I hear more descriptions like pitbull, and non-typical politician...
Sarah’s list of positive accomplishments is still miles longer than Obama’s.
I can agree with him and still believe that a Palin adminstration on its worst day would be better than the incumbent on its best.
Not A Whole Lot
I mean, why don’t you just be truthful and say you are lying? Palin has s much to do with the old line republicrats as I do, and that would be zilch. But don’t let that stop you from posting more crap pissant.
This is true.
Of course, instead of sweeping a government of communists, grifters, and scumbags, Sarah will bring with her a flood of patriots.
But the analogy (electorally) with Obama is quite accurate, I’ve used it myself.
Pissant, Gov. Palin is much more conservative
than the RINOs you support like Barbour, Ron Paul and
Pissant, you support RINOs. Give it a break.
Man, everybody has to get into the act!
“Sarah Palin is the Anti-Obama. They are polar opposites.”
Bingo! Saying she’s the Republican Obama is a true insult to her, as it implies:
a) She’s a shameless liar willing to say anything to see her unpopular policies crammed down the throats of Americans against their willing;
b) She’s a hypocrite willing to call out her opponents for their lack of civility even as she engages some of the most offensive and divisive rhetoric ever witnessed by an alleged national leader;
c) She’s a patronage politician who views government service as an opportunity to reward friends and punish enemies with funds, jobs and all other manner of taxpayer-financed loot;
d) She’s a shameless spendthrift happily willing to mortgage the country’s future in the service of her spending priorities;
e) She’s an artful dissembler unable or unwilling to produce a legitimate birth certificate or be transparent about her academic records or other information that routinely has been provided by past presidential candidates; indeed, she’d rather let a decorated military officer sit in prison than release a simple document that tens of millions of Americans are routinely asked to produce in the course of securing jobs or even allowing their kids to participant in sports.
The list is much longer, but you get the idea.
BTW. off topic: Drudge is reporting a WND story that the Governor of Hawaii cannot find Dear Leader’s hospital issued birth certificate in any state archive yet... only a written statement by someone that Our Dear Leader was so born in Hawaii.
With that opening statement, the writer totally discredited himself and demonstrated he has no clue why America supports Sarah.
Snippet from the WND story http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=252833:
“WND has also reported that Tim Adams, a former senior elections clerk for the city and county of Honolulu in 2008, has maintained that there is no long-form, hospital-generated birth certificate on file with the Hawaii Department of Health and that neither Honolulu hospital Queens Medical Center or Kapiolani Medical Center has any record that Obama was born there.”
Sarah has my vote, and it isn't because of any warm fuzzy feeling. I like her politics. I like her willingness to fight and not back down. I like her small business background and NON HARVARD or YALE education. It is time for real Americans to once again fix our nation. The ivy league screwballs need to go ponder their thumbs.
Well, it’s not worth much.
The slander Governor Palin must endure is sometimes unbearable...
This is a low blow... even for you. obama is evil icarnate. Sarah is in no way evil... but this post and the author are.
I tend to agree with Palin on that view as an ideal, also relating to the Civil Rights act, hate crime laws and other Federal government power expansions. In fact I can live with states making their own marriage laws too. It's hard to object to Democrats expansions of federal power as unconstitutional and support other ones on issues we agree with.
This seems to be in the context of her being presidential material . FROM THE POST LINK:
“So why the focus on Palin? Why so much conversation about a conversation not even worth having? Because liberals now project everything they hate about the GOP, the Tea Party, and conservatives onto Palin. This time the longstanding hatred became so ferocious that it also became blinding, resulting in accusations that were completely baseless.
I dislike Obama because of his big government policies, which are in large part an even more ambitious continuation of the last Republican presidents agenda. I dislike Palin because her rhetoric is little more than sound bites and catchphrases, making it hard to imagine that she possesses a genuinely sound conservative philosophy to substantively refute and reject the same big government policies. Palin also seems willing to ignore the conservative hypocrisy that ruined the Bush presidency and Republican Partymeaning perhaps she would also be willing to endure another round of it. This simply will not do. That Obama is charismatic does not excuse his horrible policiesand that Palin is cute or charming does not excuse her less than comprehensive conservative politics”
BS! FWIW I'm getting really sick of your trying to dig up dirt on this good woman.
I have to say that Pissant is doing a service with his work, even though he is pretty much a one note wonder as far as Palin goes. He brings stuff that folks are saying that is provocative. It typically is a slander or libel of some sort when you get down to it, but he searches for effective ones and tries to post them as an argument against her. And frankly, it gives folks a chance to pick that argument apart.
Pissant is not engaging in the I hate Palin thing, or she is dumb thing. He attempts to find evidence. This is what we do here. You could call him a contrarian specialist.
He has his role around here, despicable as it is. In politics we call this the loyal opposition. Pissant mostly stays inside the bounds and passionately pushes his point of view. This is a good thing and not a bad one. But, of course, then you have to pick this crap apart and show him once again how this is so wrong. But, hey that's what we do here.
UNless you honestly believe that the fetus is a living human being.
