I’ve thoroughly enjoyed watching the left melt down because of Alaskan Governor, Sarah Palin over the course of the last couple of months. The left, you know, the chosen one’s, the one’s who preach inclusiveness, tolerance, and above all, a woman’s right to chose. Problem is though, that only counts if you chose to tow the liberal line and nothing else.
The minute John McCain announced Sarah Palin as his running mate the left went directly into all out attack mode. They sent wave after wave of people to Alaska in an effort to dig up any and all dirt they could find on her and her family. Oh they found stuff alright. They found someone who claimed she had tried to ban books. That’s funny too, one of the books she supposedly tried to ban was “Harry Potter.” Problem with all that is the fact that “Harry Potter” hadn’t even been written yet. But hey, when you’re out to destroy someone, does that really matter?
They found out her husband got a DUI some 20 years ago. Oh my, there was the scandal involving her 17-year-old daughter being pregnant. We had the famous bridge to nowhere. You know, the same bridge that Obama and Biden both voted for before they voted against it. They tried their best to bring her down with the overblown trooper-gate thing. I’m sure they hated it when she was eventually cleared of any wrong doing in that case. Let’s see, she was criticized for having a baby with down- syndrome because in their minds, the only acceptable solution for such a child is to abort them. You know, because it’s best for the child. Sorry, I still have trouble following that logic.
The Obama deranged media, late-night talk show hosts, and the Hollywood elites all did their part to bring her down. The hypocrisy was mind boggling to say the least. High class celebrities like Pamela Anderson, Lindsay Lohan, Madonna, and mother of the year, Brittney Spears all sobered up long enough to climb on top of their high-horses to put her down. Larry Flint, an outstanding citizen, roll model, all around good guy, and oh yeah, owner of Hustler magazine jumped into the mix by making a porn movie with a Sarah Palin look alike. Now that’s real class. Not surprising, the most vicious attacks came from anonymous online bloggers. It’s amazing how cold-hearted people can be when they can hide in the shadows of their computer monitor.
Thought you had her, didn’t you? Wrong. Thanks to convicted felon, Senator Ted Stevens of Alaska, Governor Palin just might end up being Senator Palin. Didn’t see that coming did you? Yeah, you beat the hell out of John McCain but who didn’t see that coming? And yes, you dealt Palin a set back. But you know what? She’ll be back and I believe she’ll be back stronger and more popular than ever.
When she does maybe we’ll finally get to know the real Sarah Palin instead of the pit bull, lipstick wearing, hockey mom the McCain campaign tried to turn her into.
Do I think she was ready to be vice-president this time around? Probably not. Not yet anyway. Do I think she’ll be ready to run for president in 2012? I don’t know, we’ll just have to wait and see. Give her a few years in Washington to learn the ropes then we’ll get a chance to see how she handles herself. We’ll get a chance to watch how she votes on issues that are important to us as a nation. I don’t know how it’s all going to pan out. Like I said before, we’ll just have to wait and see.
What I do know is that she’s tough as hell and handles herself with the dignity and class that most of her critics can only dream of having. Am I a Palin supporter? You betcha.
