WHY THE LIBERAL ESTABLISHMENT IS FIXATED ON SARAH PALIN

As far away from the dysfunctional mentality of politics as Alaska is from Washington, D.C.

As far away from the dysfunctional mentality of politics as Alaska is from Washington, D.C.

 There are quite a few critics of Sarah Palin out there. They don’t outnumber her supporters but they are louder than those who stand by her. Her supporters are not among the Hollywood elite or the newsroom water coolers. They are not the ones at the Emmy’s accepting trophies for their mindless portrayal of some lovelorn, sex and drug addicted, mistress on a never ending daytime soap opera. They’re not the ones sitting on sofas and describing their view of things while they wave their diamond, bedazzled fingers in the air during animated conversations from the insides of a studio.

No, supporters of Sarah Palin are the people who are hard at work during the day establishing their views based upon the real lives that they live. They are the people who appreciate the changing courses in Sarah Palin’s life which brought her to the vice presidential nomination.

Her critics like to make of fun her religious values and belittle her mayoral experience. When making fun of those characteristics doesn’t get them far, they attribute fictitious actions to her in the name of her faith or in the line of her duty. Yet, admirers of Palin appreciate the changing paths that brought her leadership to them. They appreciate the fact that by drawing from her personal, religious faith, she has functioned with sincerity, bravery , confidence and conviction. And she has done so without enforcing that personal faith on others and intruding on their own beliefs.

For all those who denounce Sarah Palin and her selection for the vice presidential nomination, I suggest that they take forty minutes out of their lives and get a grip on their loose cannon critiques of her. Pick up a copy of….

SARAH: How A Hockey Mom Turned
Alaska’s Political
Establishment Upside Down
by Kaylene Johnson, Epic Press

Long before Sarah Palin was nominated for Vice President, Alaskan author Kaylene Johnson penned this quick read because she felt the story around this new Governor of Alaska was remarkable. Obviously she was right. The 140 or so pages of this paperback, details Palin’s path from small town girl to big time leader.

In it you get a sense of her unintentional role as David going after Goliath and you come to realize that Sarah Palin is not your typical politician You will understand that she never set out to conquer the world. She simply set out to do her part in the world and fell into circumstances that forced her right the wrongs she found and to stop those who tried to use the system to short change the people around them. As each page in this book turns you develop a sense of how Sarah Palin was never driven to put her name on any ballot to fulfill some aching desire for greatness or the admiration of millions. Unlike many vain politicians who seek the praise of others and set out to achieve personal greatness, Sarah truly set out to do what she felt needed to be done and in doing so, greatness found her.

It is a simple story but it is also a powerful one One that will allow people to understand why John McCain selected this woman who was relatively unknown to the lower 48, but is a hero to fellow Alaskans. Readers will come to realize that Sarah Palin was not picked for looks or her gender or to try to win over jilted Hillary supporters. She was picked because she is a doer and because she is as far removed from the dysfunctional mentality and workings of Washington as her state is. She was picked because her direction and leadership offers what all Americans, regardless of their gender, needs…….honesty, integrity and sincerity of purpose. You will see that in choosing Sarah Palin, John McCain took on a partner who is the antithesis of all that is wrong in politics. Someone who cares not about the comfort of the political class but the needs of the working class.

If you think you hate Sarah Palin or if you thought you liked her, read this book.

After reading it, Palin critics will have to reassess their opinions and mindless attacks Fans of Palin will be wanting to run her for President instead of John McCain and they will better understand why the left is infatuated with here and fixated on tearing her down.

 

 

  

 

 George W. Bush, in an airport lobby, noticed a man in a long flowing white robe with a long flowing white beard and flowing white hair. The man had a staff in one hand and some stone tablets under the other arm.

George W. approached the man and inquired, “Aren’t you Moses?”

The man ignored George W. and stared at the ceiling.

George W. positioned himself more directly in the man’s view and asked again, “Hey there! Aren’t you Moses?”

The man continued to peruse the ceiling.

George W. tugged at the man’s sleeve and asked once again, “HEY THERE! Aren’t you Moses???”

The man finally responded in an irritated voice, “Yes, I am.”

George W., a bit peeved at this point then asked, “Why the cold shoulder?”

To which Moses replied, “The last time a bush spoke to me I ended up spending forty years in the wilderness.”

SARAH CINCHED IT

For over two months I have done all that I can to help influence John McCain’s vice presidential selection.You see, I did not support John McCain for president. I supported Mitt Romney for President. Then Fred Thompson entered the race and I backed him but although I was their for Thompson’s campaign, Thompson didn’t show up to his own campaign. So I went back to Mitt Romney. I felt that Romney offered more of a true adherence to conservative principles than did McCain. I liked his freshness on the national stage, his positions on the issues, his integrity, history of success and his ability to articulate the issues and his positions on them.

However, when the battle for the nomination was over and the dust settled, I knew I would be supporting John McCain’s candidacy for president. For me the starkly different directions that our choices offer made my support unquestionable. I could not ignore the facts and sacrifice the next four years of our nation‘s future by letting Barrack Obama, (or as his running mate calls him, “Barrack America) take hold of the reigns of power.

Although I was convinced of my support, I was leery. Immigration and taxes were my most pressing concerns with McCain and I was not enthusiastic. The one thing I needed for him to do to convince and energize me was to give a sign, a sign that he was willing to embrace the Reagan Republican conservative principles that we need to enforce in government.

For me that sign was in the selection of his vice president. In the first official debate, which was actually more a well done forum and less a debate, McCain said all the right things but I was still not convinced. His first major decision, the one for vice president, was what I really looked to for the assurances that I needed.

As a political consultant I wanted someone that would help him to help republicans win. That type of help would come by having someone selected as running mate that would reinforce McCain’s maverick image as a reformer. Such a quality would help win over those much treasured and important independent voters. I also knew that his choice must be someone that would also energize McCain’s base, the conservative base, people such as myself.

Scanning the political scenery, there was my man Mitt. He would still bring to the table all that we need and was right on the issues. However his wealth would be hung around the neck of our party and he did not have the cross over appeal that McCain needs.

There was Huckabee, an articulate guy with an ability to endear himself to people and a southerner that could help lock up the south. But by all rights, McCain should not have much trouble delivering the south and it’s electoral votes. In my eyes Mike Huckabee was good but still lacking the oomph that McCain needed.

For me, that left Haley Barbour of Mississippi or John Thune of South Dakota. But again both of these deserving men lacked the edge we needed. So with my consulting hat on I tried to look for the illusive “oomph” that we needed combined with the Reaganesque philosophy that I want in a potential president.

In the face of a candidate running on “change” I know we need to highlight one of McCain’s greatest characteristics……his maverick, reform minded image. I also wanted to match the sense of historic value that Obama’s color had running for the Democrats.

As someone who is not just a casual observer of politics, but in fact, an obsessed student of it, all roads led to one person. A governor, a woman governor named Sarah Palin.

I was aware of her activity and her experience. I knew the natural progression of events which led to her ability to turn Alaska politics on it’s ear.

She was a successful Mayor, small town or not. She rooted out corruption on an Alaskan oil commission and the fact that the corruption she saw was being carried out by fellow Republicans did not prevent her from rooting it out. Actually it was the impetus for her being able to take on the powerful, Republican, Alaskan Governor Frank Murkowski and defeat him in a primary election battle for his own seat.

I was aware of the fact that this first term, Alaska, governor championed reform, knew that taxes were a burden that need to be alleviated and not implemented as a solution and I knew that she was the most convincing and strongest voice on an issue of utmost importance in this election…energy.

Combining all this with the fact the she embraces the ideology I want implemented in government along with her record of doing so and the fact that she was a she, well I just knew that this woman was the right woman at the right time. She fit the logistics of this campaign, and of this time, better than anyone else, including Mitt Romney.

Now that I found the right piece of the puzzle I could only hope and pray that John McCain would see how well it fit too. I wanted him to pick Sarah Palin as his running mate and prove to me that he has the judgment that we need and that he was the conservative that he claims to be.

As we all now know, last Friday, John McCain did so and in doing so the hell gates opened and the slander mongers went into overdrive. In subsequent blogs we will get into this but for now let us deal with the fact that our inevitable nominee did the right thing by choosing Sarah Palin and rejoice.

With all the left wing attacks, their double standard, blatant disdain for Republicans and relentless scrutiny of her family, there was just one hurdle to cross….the first impression, her acceptance speech.

Well tonight we heard it and the left, including the drive-by media, got it and got it good.

Sarah Palin lived up to her nickname Sarah Barracuda, and she did so with precision, dignity and conviction. Her acceptance speech allowed me to let out a deep sigh of relief before I jumped to my feet with jubilation, enthusiasm and gratitude. I was relieved that she passed the first major test of her worthiness for the job . I knew that she had the qualities, record and ability for the job but could she convey it all in one speech that would provide for her first national impression.

She did!

And so tonight I am convinced. I am convinced in John McCain and his being a hero that will provide us with a heroic administration of leadership as our president. I am convinced and I am energized.

Hence the creation of this blog.

John McCain has won me over and Sarah Palin has inspired me. So much so that
I vow to not allow these two people or my party to be discredited by the radical left anymore. No longer will I allow the dirty deeds of democrats to go ignored. I shall not fight fire with fire. I will take a lesson from the leader of the next generation entrusted with the conservative agenda, the lady I call Fire and Nice, Sarah Palin, and I will not act like democrats. I will not lie and cheat. I will not distort the facts but I will present the facts. This will be much to the dismay of today’s liberal Democrats because the facts are not kind to them but armed with those facts I can and will tell the truth. I will not need to stoop to the level that the liberal media and party hacks do in their politics pursuits. That does not mean I will not hurt their feelings. It just means that in light of the left wing media and the party they openly make allegiance to, I will speak the truth that they do not.
