In my 27 years on this planet, I’ve never witnessed anything quite like what is happening with the left and Sarah Palin. It has been nearly a week since McCain announced her as his VP nominee, and it seems that Democrats are only getting started in their full-on attack of this woman and her family. I am completely shocked at the underhanded and malicious ways in which the left, with the mainstream media in their pocket, have pulled out all the stops in trying to destroy her. I almost feel like I’m in high school again. Sarah Palin is the new girl in town, the complete package. The boys have instantly fallen for her, and the other catty, nasty girls are doing their best to force her out of town.
But do you realize, that should Palin survive this ordeal, and should she deliver a knockout speech at the convention tonight, this adolescent behavior by the left is going to be their ultimate defeat? Count on it.
I’ve talked before about how Palin appeals to quite a varied portion of the voting block. (Conservatives, second-amendment people, pro-lifers, young people, women, mothers, etc…) She resonates to a number of groups, in an authentic way. Palin is not a career politician; she did not attend an Ivy League school. She started out on the PTA, and went from there. She is as close an illustration of the American Way as anyone. Hers is a great story, and no wonder average Americans (like me) can identify with her.
Far be it to say that disgruntled Hillary supporters would make the insta-switch to Palin; they will not. Obviously, women aren’t going to ignore differing political philosophies between two candidates based simply on anatomy. But there are some Hillary supporters who are angry enough that just may vote for McCain due to Palin. (Of the PUMA variety, or “Party Unity My A__”.) And I know, (being a woman myself) that women don’t take to the idea of people beating up on other women, esp. if it comes from men. If the left keeps up with this bilge, it will backfire on them, big time.
As Malkin points out in her article, which I have posted below, we have the left in full Palin Derangement Syndrome mode, and that is why Palin is the best thing that could have happened for the McCain campaign. The left is threatened by Sarah Palin. They are making themselves look positively ridiculous. Only a bit dog howls, as the saying goes.
Come on, all you undecideds out there! Do you want to be a part of these low-down dirty smears against a strong, accomplished woman? Do you want to be aligned with a party who cannot debate issues, and so resorts to personal attacks on others? Do you want to associate yourself with a party that is exposing itself as the utmost in hyprocrisy? No! You’re smarter than that.
The treatment of Palin should be proof positive that the left is running scared, and that it is not the direction in which this country should go. The negativity that permeates the Democrat party is truly quite a stench. But I’m smelling nothing but roses from my side of the fence.
