Democrats Are Running Against Sarah Palin
By: Ken Hughes
Democrats have already begun to attack Sarah Paling as their prime target for the November midterm elections and why not? It was a winning strategy in 2008. Obama ran against Palin and congress ran against Bush. The question is how many times liberal politicians can recycle the old rhetoric and make it believable. Liberals made Sarah Palin the celebrity sheâ€™s become by the consistent attacks on her character. Now when Sarah Palin appears in public sheâ€™s anything but what sheâ€™s been depicted. Palin is perky, intelligent, attractive and funny while all the time delivering a powerful message loaded with conservative values, thereâ€™s a lot of Ronald Reagan in Sarah Palin. With all of her charisma we have yet to hear Palin say â€œI am woman hear me roarâ€ instead she addresses the issues of the day / week and year, she leaves recognizing her gender to the eye and not the ear. Jacquelyn Kennedy was the last woman associated with politics that inspired the public the way Sarah Palin does even though in most respects they are direct opposites. Palin is direct and vivacious Jacky Kennedy was reserved and even coy both ladies have / had a way of memorizing the media for both good and evil, Eleanor Roosevelt was another first lady who could be included in that select group. These are / were three women who made a difference for the sake of difference rather than for the sake of politics.
Sarah Palin goes to a cross roads gas pump in the Nevada desert and 25 thousand people show up to hear what she has to say. Harry Reid Chairperson of the United States Senate goes to the same cross roads gas pump and attracts fewer than 100 people. The first words out of Raids mouth was those 25 thousand Tea Partiers were all idiots for listing to Palin. Any politician who can afford to piss off 25 thousand Nevadans is either himself an idiot or just plain stupid, I vote for stupid. Sarah Palinâ€™s message is and always has been. â€œHereâ€™s what I think, tell me what you think.â€ Harry Reidâ€™s message is and always has been â€œ Itâ€™s my way and only my way.â€ Sarah Palin thinks political confrontation is good, engaging discussions are necessary in a true democracy, Harry Reid says political decent is un-American and seditious. What Sarah Palin knows and Harry Reid and his liberal ilk either doesnâ€™t know or donâ€™t want to acknowledge is the Tea Party movement is the foundation for Americas political structure, America the greatest nation thatâ€™s ever graced the earth and it all started with Town Hall meetings.
Sarah Palin is bringing back the spirit of the pioneer women who were instrumental in building this country into what it was up until last year and what it will be again next year. Sarah Palin became an American icon not because of the media rather by the Medias need for headlines. When the left decided to make Sarah Palin a target of distraction from there own indiscretions the media naturally joined in. Few public figures have the ability to turn the tables on those who attack them, Sarah Palin is an exception. Sheâ€™s been able to make fools of those who do their best to make her look foolish. The left magnifies the most insignificant comments with some embellishment trying to make them more than what they were meant to be. Many of the things attributed to Sarah Palin were actually comments made by comedian Tina Fay in her SNL gig. While Saturday Night Live was building ratings making fun of Sarah Palin Sarah Palin was using their comments to further her ideals with the American people, SNL should have charged Palin as an advertiser for the good they did in promoting her to her current star status.
There is thousands of clichÃ©s warning of the dangers of vilifying a popular opponent none of which it seems Democrats are paying any attention to. Palin remains a popular figure because the Left and the Media are locked on to her rear-end like a pit bull in a junk yard. The more they disparage her, the more popular she becomes. Not for what they say about her but for how she handles what they say about her. Sarah Palin is able to deflect the negative remarks made about her and show just how silly and childish they are and use them in her favor. One example was Harry Reid mocking Palin in his home town where she drew a crowd of 25 thousand and Harry couldnâ€™t get 100 of his best friends to show up. Democrats are making a serious mistake by not admitting they are in trouble in the coming elections. Many of those congress persons who voted against the will of the majority are about to learn one of the lessons of a true democracy, â€œWe the Peopleâ€ are still in charge.
For Sarah Palin to run for president in 2012 would be a disaster, not that she isnâ€™t qualified, she is. Rather because there needs to be an interim Republican President between her and the Obama administration. Sarah Palin may be the greatest feminine warrior since Joan of Arc but there are only so many Mongols one person can take on at one time. Sarah Palin can do more for the Republican Party doing what sheâ€™s doing now, driving the Democrats nuts by just being herself. Anyone whoâ€™s lucky enough to get the Sarah Palin stamp of approval instantly goes up in the polls. While the Media and the Left take shots the public listens and agrees. Drill baby Drill is beginning to have a broader meaning than just looking for oil.
Iâ€™m on board the Sarah Palin Express to the end of the tracks. Join in itâ€™s bound to be one hell of a fun ride.
