Palin derangement syndrome now eclipses Bush derangement syndrome
I personally never thought it would happen. I mean the Left HATES and I mean HATES President Bush.
I mean he had the audacity to win an election after all and he was not even a Conservative, but Sarah Palin has now rocketed to that coveted position.
I am not going to spend a lot of time digging into the past but suffice it to say it has a lot of relevance. One such example I remember is the clothes “SCANDAL”. You might recall the McCain campaign bought thousands of dollars worth of clothes for Sarah because they didn’t like her “simple” wardrobe.
The Left went wild. They went into a feeding frenzy over it. Page after page, story after story, Sarah was pilloried over it.
Today’s equivalent is Michelle Obama wearing a $500.00 pair of shoes to a HOMELESS shelter.
Where was the outrage? (Insert sounds of crickets chirping)
But double standards are nothing new in politics. It happens on both sides of the political spectrum so why does the Left and some on the Right “HATE” Sarah?
Well the Left is easy. They wanted her DESTROYED. They wanted her bankrupted. They wanted her so thoroughly discredited that she would forever be the example of what happens should the simple folk think they could enter into the elite political realm.
You see this after the election. You expect to be attacked from every direction DURING the campaign but after you were defeated 99.9% of the time it’s over. John McCain was welcomed back with kisses and smiles, but with Sarah the attacks were just ramping up.
After the election an amazing 18 ethics complaints were filed against Sarah Palin. Before the election a total of ZERO had been filed. The cost to the State was just under a Million dollars the cost to the Palin’s was much more, both on a personal and financial level. The problem is so bad an independent reporter Joe McGinniss moved to Alaska to continue his harassment. He even moved next door so he could watch her 24/7.
And those ethics complaints? As of this writing not a single one is still active. All were found to be baseless attacks by the Progressive left.
The problem here was she just didn’t get crushed and go away. No instead she makes a decision to leave the Governorship and strike back and strike back she did.
You see I believe it is part of the frontier mentality of Alaskans to just not roll over and die. She started coming out speaking against the Progressive agenda, writing books and yes getting RICH, FILTHY RICH.
Ain’t America great?
You see this in and of itself is what makes the left go crazy whenever they see her or hear her speak.
She failed to realize that the Progressive elites crushed her. She is supposed to be in hiding never to be heard from again. Her “common” talk and “common” background drives them nuts. There is one thing they will never understand about her. She actually says what she thinks and means what she says. This is so unlike anything they are used to seeing from a politician that they fear it.
If you are Center Right you don’t have to agree with her but you do have to admire her tenacity in the midst of the 24/7 attacks from the Progressive meat grinding machine. Whatever you think she is. She is first and foremost an American Patriot. She loves America and she believes in the Constitution that made America great. Unlike the Progressive Left that feels like the Constitution is irrelevant now she stands up and fights for it.
She may not be the most articulate among us but aren’t you just a little tired of all those polished politicians with their measured sound bites saying whatever the group they are currently speaking to wants to hear?
I for one hope Sarah continues to rattles their cages. The Progressives believe they have the moral authority to tell us whom we shall vote for or even like.
I for one will keep my freedom of choice thank you.
