To be fully open I like, respect and admire Sarah Palin. Liberals, for no good reason, can’t stand the ground she walks on. Anyone that despised by the left is doing a lot of things right.
To those of us with no axe to grind, Sarah Palin is a political powerhouse who causes enormous angst among her political enemies. A highly successful governor, she moved to the national stage with John McCain and has yet to look back. She is, by all accounts, a good wife and mother, a decent, and let’s be honest, very attractive woman, a capable spokesperson for conservative ideas and, despite not being quite as “sophisticated” as her elitist critics, she stands head and shoulders above those who dismiss her in less than flattering terms.
Palin is the ultimate feminist, capable, self made, depending on no one to clear a path for her. It wasn’t Sarah Palin who had to marry to move into a governor’s mansion. But enough about Hillary Clinton.
Beyond her accomplishments in state politics, the former Alaskan Governor enjoys continued success as a media political commentator, speaker, author, force to be reckoned with by the Republicans and beloved face of the Tea Party. She is a capable outdoors woman who can hunt, fish and climb mountains doing it all with an endless supply of energy. Palin is an inspiration to women who want to succeed on their own merits and not be beholden to anyone or anything such as a government handout for example. No wonder liberals hate her.
She is not dumb as the left desperately paints her. For that kind of dumb you have to turn to House Minority leader Nancy Pelosi. Or, as brilliantly noted by political observer Dennis Miller, “If Anthony Weiner is genius and Sarah Palin is dunce, where do I sign up for dunce?”
Palin is not part of a disgruntled mob, doesn’t shy away from family issues, doesn’t portray herself as a victim, isn’t down on America and will not be flirting with scandal. The New York Times and the Washington Post just went through 24,000 Palin emails and came up with nothing to reinforce the negative image they have invested so heavily in.
So why do people think Sarah Palin is an idiot? Ann Coulter, in her latest book, Demonic, discusses the mob mentality of the left. Liberals do not think independently. They go with the mob. They are the mob. As Coulter points out, the mob leader is the one who shouts the loudest and establishes slogans that all liberals will mindlessly parrot like, “Sarah Palin is an idiot.”
I know people who believe it. Yet, when asked which of her policies they disagree with, they have no answer. It is no different than saying how much you dislike Rush Limbaugh or Sean Hannity then admitting, “I never listen.”
The facts are there for those with the intellectual honesty to understand and evaluate. Sarah Palin is no fool. Can any thinking person actually believe Palin would have been half the disaster that Obama has been as president? It is not even remotely possible. Unlike Obama, Palin would not have purposely moved time and again to destroy the country she claims to believe in. And Palin, it is worth noting, had way more experience at governing than the former Chicago community organizer which is code for community antagonist. That’s who sits in the Oval Office today and Palin is the dumb one. Really?
So, should she run for president in 2012? No. Why take the pay cut? Besides, she has a much larger role to play in contributing to the debate and changing the political process unshackled by the restrictions of holding office. There is a desperate need for leadership but Palin has a more important task to perform in service to her country than that of president.
America and conservatives need an unrestrained voice calling for a return to sanity and fiscal responsibility. The Democrats are well on their way to killing the American dream and destroying the entire country permanently. Their goal must not be realized. Palin is one of the most influential, conservative, Paul Revere like voices, quite adept at challenging America’s internal political enemies.
Sarah Palin is brilliant and for that reason all liberals fear and hate her.
So – what’s not to like?
