Skipping to the end:
Consider, if you will, what happens to a person who suggests that Sarah Palin is anything other than saintly. Right off the bat, they are accused of disliking America or Alaska or conservatives or mothers or the working class or even women in general and then they are informed that their hatred is showing. Next, their motives are questioned and their supposedly secret agenda is exposed for the world to see, for no right-thinking person could dislike Palin on the merits, natch. I hope you enjoy your elite cocktail parties, the apologists will say, and then they will huffily tell you that they hope signaling that you are one of them was worth it. And finally as is the case when one expresses disapproval of other cult figures, such as President Obama, Ron Paul, Neil DeGrasse Tyson, and Paul Krugman it is presumed that all animadversion must be motivated by envy or by snobbery or by secret admiration, and that it can therefore be safely ignored. What have you done, they will ask, that compares to my paragon of virtue? All told, its really quite pathetic.
Having been mercilessly and unjustly pilloried by the media throughout the 2008 campaign, Sarah Palin had a clear choice in its aftermath: She could sober up and prove the buggers wrong, or she could collapse into ignominious pasquinade. Sadly, she chose the latter. The rest of us should choose to move on.

I don't understand it either, except in that folks who you and I and many others understand are pushing for liberalism, have themselves convinced that because it's Republican, it's less liberal and voting for it is voting against the liberal, so it's the same as a push for conservatism. They are that fatalistic. "Lesser evil."
I used to be one! Didn't you?
And because it is, quite simply, Jim Robinson's football. And a fine, blessed football it is; I'm glad that it's here. I count my blessings.
I know many good people sincerely, mulishly, well-meaningly, cling to voting "against." I want them to wake up, so I speak out. They don't like it, but every once in awhile, the light bulb goes off ...
I have reason to believe most people here read, and comment rarely. You and I, bigmouth blowhards that we are, are always weighing in! I don't care about Sasparillas. I care about readers.
Whoever they are!
It still doesn’t change the truth of my post. Because what I said is EXACTLY what you say every time you post, correctly so, about taking ownership of action.
As I said before. We are long past the time where we can sit here and hope that change comes to the minds of the idiots still in rabid support of the GOP/RINO left. If people have not figured it out by now, then those people are simply, the enemy of everything we believe in and if we keep blowing smoke up our own arses about fixing them, then thats time not spent forwarding conservatism/fighting liberalism. Most kids stick the fork in the power socket once. We did that . Time to learn that lesson. Or time to go home. One or the other.
I’m tired of making excuses for, listening to excuses for, and justifying the actions of people openly fighting everything I believe in in some Obama-like ‘hope’ they achieve enlightenment.
The Iron Range is Democrat/Union territory.
Alaska is “mind your own damn business” territory.
Not even close.
If the bumper stickers had read Palin/McCain instead of the other way around, we’d never have had to suffer through Obozo’s idiocy.
Then what do you propose to do? Start bossing Jim Rob around?
Nope. He can do what he wants. It’s his site.
You answer is simple Norm.
Start your own site so that you can determine who meets your criteria for perfection.
Really very simple.
Did you all just hear Sarah on Hannity’s show..WOW she was on FIRE..I want to hear those haters who trashed her Iowa speech say about what she just said now on his show..she was absolutely AMAZING!!
Huffington post really cant stand Sarah, you will find like minds over there.
I love her and find this trashing of her very very upsetting...I am praying for her my Sister in Christ
I heard the last little bit.
It was pretty dare good!! :D
It was DAMN GOOD..she talks like that every time and she can win hands down
Or I am sure on of Her other FReepers will.
Many of them are faster than me :P
She was excellent! You’re right, beautiful Sarah Barracuda!!!
Hannity’s show repeats again later on so you can tune in and watch it again(Depending on where you are) but yeah I can pretty much bet someone will post the interview here it was fantastic!
Thank you for the heads up Sweetest Sarah!
You brightened by Evening! You and Onyx
I watched Hannity just to see Sarah Palin and of course, she didn’t disappoint!
America deserves the best, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin tonight told Sean Hannity as she weighed in on the 2016 elections. Gov. Palin said in considering her own future, she is a Christian and would first seek inspiration and guidance from God. Following this would be approval from her family. If Sarah Palin were to take action toward a run, her small team would expand, she said. She declined to give Hannity odds of her running. She said it is too early to give a decision and other hopefuls would say the same. Scott Walker, who today formed an exploratory committee also declined to give Hannity odds of him running.
Sarah Palin gave a summation of her Yes We Can Beat Hillary speech from this past Saturday and laid out what could be a potential campaign platform. She aims to eliminate corporate taxes; ease restrictions on oil and gas drilling; eliminate crony capitalism; reduce the size of the federal government; and secure our borders. A nation without borders is not a nation, she said. America should not look to Saudi Arabia to develop energy, she said.
She plans to continue doing what she is doing to advance the Reagan conservative message outside of her serious interest in a run for President. She said America deserves the best candidate. Competition ensures the best one emerges
She also called out Bill O’ Reilly which was AWESOME. Now THAT is the Sarah Palin that totally ROCKS..I dare any of the haters to say something bad about what she said tonight she was rockin it
After reading all the criticism of Gov Palin, I saw and heard it fully. And I instantly understood why the media have got their panties in a twist. This speech was up there with the Gettysburg address. Powerful. The libs are scared out of their wits because they have never heard anything like it.
