Um...I’m not suggesting anyone walk in lockstep with me, I’m only saying there’s a profound difference between critics and the haters. Many of the Palin “critics” on FR are in fact haters who see her as an enemy that must be crushed for good.
It’s like the difference between people who hate Obama’s policies versus the people who just hate him because he’s black.
meanwhile...back in the real world, the queenmaker from Wasilla just keeps chugging along.
Very few want her crushed for good. Figment of your imagination. If she enters the race, puts herself up against the other candidates in the primary, and does well, She will get the votes.
No other potential candidate will be perfect either.
We have a year before the race gets going in earnest.
Give it time and let it play out. You might be surprised.
I live in the SF Bay Area and the mere mention of her name makes some on the left become absolutely unhinged.
When you ask them why, they usually can’t tell you.
When pressed, they start reciting falsehoods about how she hunts Deer from an airplane, or other idiotic statements (The “I can see Russia from my house.” is another.) then they finish up by claiming she is stupid.
These people are willfully ignorant and intellectually lazy.
They believe every falsehood ever said about her, yet they deny any of her achievements, which are many, or they are dismissive of them.
Example: One lefty claimed he could also sell 2.5 Million books if he was a VP candidate the previous year.
Most Palin haters fall into several types of people:
Unattractive, liberal women tend to become the most hysterical when it comes to criticizing Palin, while liberal men tend to be the most misogynistic.
I also predicted the MSM would do to her what they did to GW Bush, but only much worse in a much shorter time period.
After she gave her acceptance speech, I mentioned it in a thread. I said the media is going to go all out for the next 3 months to destroy her.
I knew that she would energize the GOP and that her presence was a major threat to the chosen one.
If I have time, I’ll do a search and repost it, but I’m sure others thought and wrote pretty much the same thing.
Sarah Palin resonates with the average, hard working American, and the liberal establishment despises people, especially a woman, a mother of five, that became successful without Government assistance.
The thinking by the left is that people like Sarah Palin, Joe the Plumber, and other hard-working people who strive to achieve and succeed on their own aren’t popular with the Dems or the MSM, and they and their message must be silenced by any means necessary.
There was a time in America when people like Joe and Sarah would be upheld as role models.
Instead they are ridiculed, attacked, and marginalized while shysters like Obama are put on a pedestal and idolized.
