Small Towns

Obama just doesn’t get it, does he? He doesn’t understand that when he looked down his nose and mocked Sarah Palin for being the Mayor of a “tiny” little town of 9,000 people somewhere in Alaska, he offended a hell of a lot of people.
He offended the Mayors and the people who live in these tiny little towns all across America. Who does he think lives in those tiny little towns he mocked? Millions of American’s, that’s who and they vote. For the most part, they’re just people, people like you and I. They’re people doing the best they can with what they have to work with. In these small towns you’ll find farmers and ranchers. You’ve got your rough necks and construction workers, plumbers and electricians. You walk into the hardware store and they know you by name. In most cases a guy can get a haircut without making an appointment ahead of time. You have your policemen and women and there’s a good chance the Fire Department is made up of volunteers who drop everything at a moments notice to help someone else. There are teachers, doctors, and nurses. Every little town has their lawyers, City Councils, and Mayors to deal with. It’s probably just me but it seems like Churches are more important to the people who live in these small towns he looked down upon.
People from small towns deal with the same issues as people everywhere. They have good times and bad. If you’ve got business in a small town during football season and their high school is playing an away game, you’d better get it taken care by at least noon. A lot small towns will literally shut down to follow their kids to wherever they’re playing. Yeah, it’s that big a deal.
They deal with death, taxes, marriage and divorce. They have hopes and dreams and don’t really like anyone telling them how to live. Some of them hunt and fish. Some of them like to race their stock cars at dirt tracks all across America. You know, kind of like snowmobile racing, only it’s not so cold. These are the people Obama tried to marginalize in his attacks against Sarah Palin.
You know, Obama doesn’t like aknowledge the fact that Sarah Palin is the current Governor of Alaska. And when he does, he does his best to portray the entire state of Alaska itself as insignificant because of it’s population. That’s funny too. When Obama and Al Gore were screaming about us all dying in ten years because of global-warming, Alaska was hailed as the most important place on Earth.
Obama you can say what you want. You can claim she’s inexperienced and not ready to lead till you‘re blue in the face. But the fact that you and your handlers know Sarah Palin has the support of 80% of the people she represents tells me you know exactly how much trouble your campaign is in.
Oh yeah, Governor Sebelius. I know I’m not the first one to talk about the speech you gave in response to the one Sarah Palin gave at the Republican National Convention. And I know I’m not the first one to point out the hypocrisy of your comments. I thought it was a little ironic for you to criticize her speech because she was just reading something written by someone else.
Whatever Governor, the speech Sarah Palin gave that night at the Republican National Convention was delivered with the excitement and passion that ignited the biggest political firestorm in a generation. The prepared speeches you “read” Governor are dull and boring and they inspire no one. That’s the difference Governor. Believe me when I say the Conservative movement is alive and well all across America and we’re here to stay.
