Paul Bedard: Why Sarah Palin Would Make a Good President

U.S. News and World Report has an article about the 10 reasons why Sarah Palin would make a good president. Now don't get all crazy on me now and start touting U.S. News and World Report as an endorsement for Palin. Tomorrow they will post 10 reasons why she would make a bad president. I'll give them credit, though, for at least being fair and balanced.

What caught my attention was something that was just posted on Conservatives4Palin.com about some comments that were posted on the article.

What immediately followed those [positive] comments made it all the more post-worthy:

I didn't know all that stuff about Sarah Palin. Wow
“I didn’t know” It’s that simple. This comment emphasizes how people have been affected by the LSM’s attempts to misrepresent her record. However, slowly the message is getting out and people are getting to find out the truth. It’s up to us to follow the lead of those commentators who take the initiative to fisk the blogs and post the truth educating people one at a time.
That my friends is what happens when you successfully convince someone that the media lies. Wow, I could have had a V8!

Here is my comment on the U.S. News and World Report post:
We Need Common Sense and Outside the Box Thinking

The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. Politics in Washington is always business as usual. Sarah Palin would make a good president because she is a citizen politician - one of us - who doesn't think like a Washington insider.

She is capable of making gutsy decisions not based on the prevailing political winds and working closely with her staff as well as the legislature as demonstrated by how she governed Alaska pre-2008 election.

If you read Going Rogue: An American Life, you'll get a flavor of how this woman thinks. That would be a refreshing blast of fresh air if it ever blew through Washington.
Remember, those who think inside the box tend to believe what they hear and read in the mainstream media. If someone ever tells you they don't think Sarah Palin could be president, don't argue Sarah Palin. Argue the media lies. First determine if they're a liberal. You can't convince a kool aid drinker. If they're not, the key is to undo the brainwashing that has been done to good honest Americans who just don't have the time to do the research that we bloggers do.

Ask people what their source of information is. They will almost always name a media source. Convince them to do independent research and learn how rumor and innuendo get run up the flagpole and how it gets into the mainstream media - especially ending up on biased networks like MSNBC, CBS or CNN.

If you really want to read an article about how a radical off the wall left wing loon Trig Truther site made it up the media flagpole and became the main source for a Keith Olbermann commentary, read here.
