Waiting for Sarah (while other conservatives join liberals to bash her)
AmerIvan Thinker ^ | Saturday June 25, 2011 | M Catherine Evans

Posted on 06/25/2011 3:44:21 PM PDT by Bigtigermike

After all Sarah Palin did last year to contribute to the GOP's historical 2010 win, and all that she has gone through to shine the light on true conservative values, I am amazed how some of those on the right still disparage her.

Jeff Kuhner of the Washington Times, and a fill-in host for Michael Savage, echoed leftist reporters like Susan Milligan of U.S. News and Bill Keller of the New York Times.

Mrs. Palin (should she run) may be able to win the GOP nomination. The presidency, however, is a bridge too far. The media will eviscerate her. Outside of her intense base, she is despised and distrusted. She personifies the cheap politics of celebrity.

Really, Jeff? "The media will eviscerate her?" Where have you been for the past 3 years? She is probably the most vetted politician in U.S. history. Palin has withstood accusations of murder, a barrage of bogus charges as Governor (after her 2008 election loss -- how scared are the Dems?), vicious attacks on her children, public death threats by various entertainers, a guerilla media obsessed with destroying her, and basement Obama zombies posting graphic pornographic messages about a mother of five on leftist sites. Is the governor's integrity still intact? You betcha.

Susan Milligan used the same line as Kuhner comparing Palin to Paris Hilton:

Palin is becoming the Paris Hilton of the Republican Party -- famous for being famous, pulling stunts to get attention, and then complaining about the attention she's getting.

But Bill Keller takes the prize. After reading this, Kuhner and his fellow right-wing wimps should shudder at the thought of standing beside the same liars and radicals they purport to despise.

One thing about conservatives, we’ve bashed the hell out of every Republican candidate we’ve got. NOBODY is good enough to be OUR candidate. NOBODY!

Those people are NOT Conservative..A TRUE Conservative should NEVER bash another one just to get some love from the press. What the heck has Sarah done wrong to deserve such nasty comments from so-called Republicans..all she has done is try to help the GOP and this is the thanks she gets..figures..like Glenn Beck said a while back, slowly slowly some aspects of the GOP are becoming more inundated with progressives.

Right, pulling stunts like getting the Republicans control of the House of Representatives and making Boehner Speaker, thus lifting the Young Guns Cantor, McCarthy, and Ryan into their majority “leadership” positions. Just like that airhead Paris Hilton.

The Rinos need to be bashed.

Bashed until they join the Dem party where they belong.

Especially these two: FUMR & FURP.

No, noooo ... this is BEAUtiful.

Every "conservative" jumps on to some kind of Palin-bashing wagon and


then


Sarah jumps in.




The ONLY viable candidate in the feild.

LANDSLIDE victory.

The flaw there is Boehner is Speaker. The guy can’t stay sober long enough to quit crying about something and actually leading with a set of brass balls. Only balls the guy has are High Balls.

Who can doubt her fighting spirit as she fired up an April tea party crowd in Madison Wisconsin declaring:

The 2012 election begins here. We will fight for America and it starts here in Madison, Wisconsin. Mr. President, game on!"


= = = = = =

LINK-APRIL 16,2011


"We're flat broke, but he thinks these solar shingles and really fast trains will magically save us.


So now he's shouting, all aboard the bullet train to bankruptcy."


Well, Mr. President, we’re not going to get used to it. Not now. Not ever.

You ignored us in 2010. But you cannot ignore us in 2012.

Mr. President, you and your cohorts threw all the hatred and all the violence you could at these good folks in Madison, Wisconsin. But you lost here.

And Madison, you defended the 2010 electoral mandate. You are heroes, you are patriots, and when the history of this Tea Party Movement is written, what you accomplished here will not be forgotten.

Your historic stand brought down the curtain on the last election. And the 2012 election begins here.

We will take the courage and the integrity that you showed all of America. We will take it and we will win back our country!

God has shed His grace on thee, America. We will not squander what we have.

We will fight for America! And it starts here in Madison, Wisconsin!

It starts here! It starts now! What better place than the state that hosts the Super Bowl champs to call out the liberal left and let them know:

Mr. President, game on!

Wrong. The McCain campaign made a video calling Obama a celebrity and got a bounce in the polls from it.

Something is definitely haywire when a GOP strategist like Alex Castellanos speaking on Meet the Press acknowledges Palin's charisma and conservatism but doesn't want her "in the race."

I don't see a place for her. I think the real Sarah Palin is Michele Bachmann, and she's in.ROTFLOLOL.

Mr. Castellanos is practically terminal from PDS. The ex-governor from Alaska isn't 'real' enough to even exist on her own. Seriously? Along with the Jeff Kuhners and the George Wills, elitists like Castellanos are determined to kill off the Republican Party.

While they beat the bushes looking for acceptable RINOs to run against Palin, real conservatives can't wait for the 2008 Vice-Presidential candidate to announce that she's running.

Contrary to Kuhner's contention, the Wasilla warrior is more than ready to cross the 14th Street Bridge, march up to Pennsylvania Avenue, turn left and walk right into the White House.

B T T T ! ! !

ANNOUNCE, SARAH ANNOUNCE!

For me, it was watching him at AIPAC a few weeks back. It was obvious, he was stewed making that speech (it was actually embarrassing is what it was). Knowing that and looking back at some of his other interviews/speeches over the past year and his erratic emotional behavior (crying at the drop of a hat, overly emotional about mundane issues); the guy has the obvious signs of an alky. (Other alk’s know what I mean).

The media will attempt to eviscerate her. And sometimes she will unfortunately assist them.

“What have you seen so far today, and what are you going to take away from your visit?” is a lamestream media gotcha qiestion?

No, Sarah, it ain’t. You are, ma’am, at times embarrassingly over-reactive.

Sarah Palin stood by her historical account of Paul Revere’s ride(s) on FOX News Sunday. There is some discussion about whether or not she was correct. Palin claims it was a “gotcha” question.

http://www.milkandcookies.com/link/255042/detail/

There was no “gotcha” question. “What have you seen so far today, and what are you going to take away from your visit?” is not a “gotcha” question.

Sir/Madam, admittedly, not everyone, even everyone on FR, could or even should support Sarah. That is why we have elections. That said, most of us on FR kinda take umbrage to those taking shots at Sarah that don’t “keep it between the lines”.

Finally, and to be sure, Palin will be “eviscerated”. Both by the leftists persons masquerading as honest journalists and by people like yourself. Wow! That’s news. So, will ANY Republican nominee!

Your comment is too cryptic for me to follow. What I think you are saying is that Sarah is doing things that allow the media to use against her. If you agree, give some examples on how Sarah has acted to give the lame stream media reason to attack? How is Sarah assisting the media in her destruction?

Finally, who is being “over-reactive?”

“Part of his ride was to warn the British that were already there. That, hey, you’re not going to succeed. You’re not going to take American arms. You are not going to beat our own well-armed persons, individual, private militia that we have. He did warn the British. And in a shout-out gotcha type of question that was asked of me, I answered candidly. And I know my American history.”
