MICHAEL JACKSON, MICHAEL JACKSON, MICHAEL JACKSON
There, now I’ll probably get 1,000,000 hits to this article in the next 5 minutes.
As everyone is aware by now, Gov. Palin has announced her desire to leave the office of Governor of Alaska. Since the moment she made this announcement I have been tortured by commentators discussing this matter with phrases like, “what does this mean?” “If she can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen,” “this will help her run for President in 2012,” “this will kill her chances for President in 2012,” “she will likely run for Senator,” “maybe there is truth to the ethics violations.” AAAAHHHH!!!
Republicans and Democrats–SHAME ON YOU! Let’s review for a minute what has happened. In the middle of the election process a doomed candidate for the Republican party chooses an actual real-life conservative to run with him on a “conservative” platform. John McCain chooses Sarah Palin. She is an instant overnight sensation. The media begins by talking about how great she is and how she connects with “real” people. (I guess McCain connected with the “fake” ones).
She begins to give enthusiastic and inspiring speechs talking about an America that we all love where Government stays out of our lives and taxes are lowered and spending is responsible. She talks about protection for the unborn and gun ownership and entrepreneurship and living an American Dream free of bailouts and National Health Care. She decimates Joe Biden in a debate despite being the more inexperienced politician.
She willingly and unselfishly gives of herself to the Republican Party in an effort to stop the Country’s slide into certain socialism. She takes time away from her family and her life in Alaska to tour the Country–even beyond what the Party expected her to do.
The media, fearing that she might actually dethrone the Obamamessiah and vault McCain to victory begins an all-out assault. They attack her non-Ivy league education, her lack of foreign policy experience, her comments about seeing Russia from the shore of Alaska, her daughter’s pregnancy, her folksy way of talking. They call her stupid and ridiculous and cartoonish. They unscrupulously and grotesquely go for her throat–why? Because they knew and still know that she is dangerous. The Democrats know that even if she never runs again, if she campaigns for others, she is a force to be reckoned with. And so the assualts continue.
The election is over, but that is not enough, the media and the Democrats seek to put her under the ground. The attacks continue. Overpaid nuts like David Letterman attack her 14 year old daughter–and the media let’s it go. But remember, when Obama said kids are “off the table” for attack during the campaign, the media said “you betcha.”
Then ridiculous ethics attacks from Democrats in Alaska surface making issues out of which office she may have given an interview. And so…for whatever reason–which doesn’t matter by the way…she steps down.
Where are the Republicans? Where is John McCain? Where is anyone to defend her? And now, commentator after commentator takes the few spare moments in between wiping the tears over Michael Jackson’s death to continue the assault. She gave everything she could to the Republican Party–for who you ask? For you and me. Whatever you think of her, she believes in this Country, she believes in Freedom and she gave of herself in service to America–not because she loves John McCain or the Republicans but because she loves America.
So for those yellow-backed, myopic Republicans that don’t have the guts to say it–I apologize on their behalf for their foolish, insensitive behavior toward you and your family and their unwillingness to step up to your defense. And as for me personally…
Thank you for your service to this Country so far and I hope and pray, that despite the wounds and the attacks, you will find a way to continue to serve us in the future. But if you don’t, I understand and thank you for inspiring me and others to once again discover true conservative values and ideas.
