Why do they hate her? What is it about Sarah that is driving left-wing elites to say the most idiotic and bizarre things? Since her explosive arrival onto the political scene, Palin has endured far more than the customary and expected vetting and scrutiny.
Obama underlings and their dinosaur media apparatchiks have dug through her garbage, rifled through her dirty laundry, and interviewed every friend, foe, and caribou in Alaska. She has been (falsely) branded a book-burner, a religious zealot, “anti-women,” and “anti-science.”
I found an interesting take on this from Salon.com and this one over at NoQuarterUSA.net..(very good writer,both are left leaning..but very interesting reads below.
By LisaB“It took Nixon to go to China.” Will it take Republicans to elect a woman?
Camille Paglia, not a Republican by any stretch of the word, has an article at Salon detailing her reaction to the Sarah Palin choice and what it means for feminism. Very interesting stuff and worth the read.
Today’s Washington Post claims that Gov. Palin falsely equated Saddam Hussein with the 9/11 hijackers at the ceremony yesterday seeing Alaska troops off to Iraq. In reality she said they’d soon be taking on forces aligned with those who hit us on 9/11 – an obviously true statement. Al Qaeda in Iraq is part of Al Qaeda, and it’s been a coon’s age since Saddam Hussein was fighting this war.
Then came Charlie…er…I mean Charles Gibson. The ABC News star tried to jettison his nice-guy image in the first interview with Palin and ended up coming off like a pedantic snob. Aside from tripping up on the Bush Doctrine (she explained it as his general worldview, as opposed to the doctrine of preemptive military action), she acquitted herself well.
Sorry, Charlie. There are actually 4 Bush Doctrines..you can find them over on Right Truth at this link:
http://www.newsnet5.com/index.html– it was running 41% yes ability to lead the country and 41% No..go vote. A dead heat!
In the past two-weeks, Obama-friendly columnists and commentators have questioned Palin’s fitness as a mother. CNN, NBC and the other left-wing media outlets have expended more man-hours looking into Palin’s faith than they did in two years looking into Barack Obama’s. My personal favorite, though, is actor Matt “Bagger Vance” Damon’s saying that the mere possibility of Vice President Palin was like a “bad Disney movie.” Damon really really wants to know if she believes there were Dinosaurs 4,000 years ago! Pamela Anderson.. “I can’t stand her”..not that you know her Pamie, you just can’t stand what she stands for..they have to expletive deletive your suck comment!
The vitriol is so over-the-top that it is having a boomerang effect. As the attacks over the last two weeks have intensified, the McCain/Palin poll numbers have shot up. Today’s Gallup numbers show for the first time in years Republicans winning a generic congressional ballot among likely voters. Elites from Los Angeles to Manhattan are sensing that their chance at a political utopia may be slipping away.
Sarah Palin’s entire existence is a refutation of everything the Radical left holds sacrosanct. They champion abortion rights, she stands for life, personally and politically. They think the redistribution of income is indispensable to achieving “economic justice.” She sees it as their means to grow government and penalize prosperity. They look at America and see a collection of oppressed minorities. She sees America as the land of opportunity. They believe we need to do more to court “world opinion.”
She’s not embarrassed over having little use for Europe.
It is not enough for them to beat Sarah Palin, they must destroy her. The shenanigans they pulled on Hillary and her supporters was unbelievable..with Sarah they attack her personal life and family to boot! Yep, the Obama camp got a free ride from the MSM for quite a long while. I personally believe if it were not for the many blogs outrage and frustration with his dubious associations, and corrupt ‘good ole boys’ they would be silent yet.
UPDATE: in Red
Today, the Democrats have announced they will employ a troop of “female surrogates,” including Senator Clinton of New York, Governor Janet Napolitano of Arizona, and Governor Kathryn Sibelius of Kansas to take Governor Palin on and hopefully steal her thunder away from voters in battleground states.
Sounds like it will be a page from the book Woman’s Inhumanity to Woman.
I wonder why the guys are so uncomfortable taking a woman on publicly? In the political arena, they do so all the time, usually behind closed doors–except if that woman is Senator Clinton. How ironic, that Senator Obama has had to turn to her now.
In my opinion, President Amadinejad might indeed have formidable opponents in Senator McCain and Governor Palin who understand that we are at war and that it is one we must win. Unlike Senator Obama, I bet they do not view the terrorists as “perverting the Islamic faith” (Obama said this in his interview with O’Reilly) but rather, as expressing it all too well. On this very point, (whether there is a “good” and “peaceful” Islam or not), our Republic will either stand or fall.
I have heard (do not know if true) that they are considering dropping Biden from the Messiah’s ticket. I did hear Biden say that Hillary would have been a better selection. Is he now going to use a health issue? Thought his health was vetted. If they do drop Biden and convince Hillary to go on the ticket now..would that not prove finally that the great one has poor judgment? Proved it to me with several issues..The latest being the Russian invasion into Georgia..how many times did he backtrack with his statements? 3 times. Could Hillary have been the focus of Obama’s meeting with Bill Clinton? Time will tell.
It is time to face it…both parties need an overhaul! Many of the leaders in both parties have left their constituencies. They have not heard or they do not care! I did not hear one word at either convention about our illegal immigration problem. Did I miss it somehow? Do they not understand that the American people are concerned about terroism? Yes, they promise to make our borders safer. Why are they not safe now? Why are border guards still in prison?
When will we get back to the issues? When will the ads stop their lies? I am speaking here of a new ad yesterday from the Obama campaign..the one where it shows a computer and says McCain can’t even send an email! Do they not know, do they not care about the truth being that he cannot comb his hair..that he truly fought for us..and in the process he cannot raise his arms. Does the MSM care to address this?
See the link below from NoQuarter that addresses the cruelty of this one.
This ad, released by the Obama campaign today, and played numerous times on television, is utterly cruel, and should not only be pulled from the Obama Web site and Obama YouTube channel — where it is still displayed — but also require Obama to issue a profound apology:
Jonah Goldberg Wondering No More
Of the candidates that have proven change (that is clearly on their record) and in the process taken on their own party, we have the McCain Palin ticket. Two candidates that are very much alike with quite a few of the same values of reform. On the change ticket of Obama Biden, he chose a Washington insider. One that would soothe the fear of Obama’s lack of experience. McCain took a risk. McCain revealed in this move that he truly is the Maverick of the Senate!
I found a beautiful letter from a Republican to a former Democrat who is now an Independent, I consider this a must read..the writing, the heart really says it all, below is an excerpt from NoQuarter. We all love our country and this says it all. Thank you Patrick. Thank you NoQuarter for posting this. It is time that those of us who love our Country put the Country first.
By Eastan McNealSometimes people will visit NoQuarter and slip in a comment that should be repeated. It is my opinion that the below message, from Patrick, is one all of us Independents (me), Democrats and other Americans should take the time to read – in full.
I wrote this on 9/11, after watching it all happen again…I probably should have posted it in the Thank You thread below, but it also seems appropriate here, because the Erosion this thread speaks of is thanks in large part to you all…
I just watched the Towers fall again.
And the world stopped. It changed. We would never be the same.
Seven years later and here we are. We haven’t had another attack, but we’ve lost thousands of America’s finest. I will not debate the merits of the Iraq war. I believe that I, as a centrist Republican, and all you good people differ on that issue. Read the rest
It’s a long way ’til November 4th, but I’m betting on the Maverick of the Senate and the gal with the double-barreled shotgun and camouflage ski jacket.
