Let's start off with a fantastic read written by Sarah Palin: Lies, Damned Lies – Obamacare 6 Months Later; It’s Time to Take Back the 20!
"By the way, when the administration was talking about that independent board that has the statutory power to decide which categories of treatment are worthy of funding based on efficiency calculations (that, again, sounded to me like a panel of faceless bureaucrats making life and death decisions about your loved ones – which, again, is what I referred to as a 'death panel'), it was another opportunity for Americans to hear the truth about Obamacare’s intentions."
Newsbusters on Jack Cafferty's PDS: "On Wednesday's Situation Room, CNN's Jack Cafferty revisited his anti-Sarah Palin obsession and somewhat predictably, grouped U.S. Senate candidate Christine O'Donnell with the former Alaska governor, stating it 'feels like Sarah Palin all over again....O'Donnell has some big question marks on her resume, just like...Palin.'"
Whenever good-looking conservative feminists appear on the political scene, the left rears its frightened chauvinistic hatred of attractive females. No wonder leftists never decry Islam’s hiding women under black sheets. Heaven forbid there might be a “cupcake” among them; it would topple the crazy, brutally, male-dominated portion of civilization as we know it!Lori Ziganto:
Listen, actual sexism should, and does, get pointed out. Deciding to discuss if Sarah Palin had a boob job the day after primaries, as a way to diminish the primary wins of candidates she endorsed? Sexist. The Palin Newsweek cover and “humorous poems“? Sexist. Journolist’s planned attacks on Palin? Sexist. A democrat congresswoman suggesting that GOP women need to lift their skirts before voting to check to see if they are female? Yes, that’s all sexist.Susannah Fleetwood: "If they [the mainstream media] dislike you, or find you to be 'spreading the poison', that means you are winning. See Sarah Palin and the Tea Party as exhibit A of this phenomenon."
Ah, and you also know we are winning when Time Magazine says something nice about Sarah Palin.
A year ago, Sarah Palin gazed out across this lake as she hunkered down to write a book many felt the world might ignore. She had just resigned as governor of Alaska. The losing 2008 vice-presidential candidate had been roundly written off by what she terms the "lamestream media" as yesterday's news. People in Washington and Wasilla wondered if her time had come and gone. Her "rambling resignation speech should take her off the political map for the duration of the Obama era," wrote conservative New York Times columnist Ross Douthat.Ian Lazaran:
Her failing became a theme on the right. "She is now a quitter," George Will declared on ABC. Even Fox News became a soapbox for those writing her off. "It is not clear what her strategy here is by exiting the governorship 2½ years through the term," Karl Rove said on one of its shows. He pronounced himself "perplexed" by her rush for "the national stage that she may not yet be prepared to operate in."
What a difference a year makes.
Palin is now more popular nationally, more in demand by conservative groups as a speaker and far richer than she's ever been. She has earned an estimated $9 million by talking and writing — her first book ended up being a best seller, thank you very much — and she has inked a reported $1 million annual contract with Fox News. Oh, and she's become the most important independent endorser in a generation: her 16-11 win-loss record in the recent GOP primaries gives her a lot of political chits to call in if — just to suppose — she were to weigh a presidential run.
My take on Jimmy Carter is that it's good for our country if what he says should not happen actually does happen. Here is what Carter said should not happen:Cubachi:
But when I ask Carter if he thinks [Palin] will run for president, he responds crisply: “I don’t think she should."If the second worst President in the last fifty years (Obama is the worst) says that Governor Palin should not run for the presidency, it means that it would be a good thing for the country if she did.
Sarah Palin is not about to let this election slide from conservative hands. She is leading the charge in promoting great candidates to promote our principles in the House and Senate. She is not taking the enthusiasm of conservatives and the tea party for granted. If we’re serious about changing Washington, we must not relent in promoting, aiding, and voting these men and women to office.I know this isn't directly related to the topic, but I have to give The Other McCain credit for a great picture:
Her endorsement of common sense conservatives will heighten activism among the Palinistas and conservatives. Today, Palin launched “Take Back The 20″ endorsing 20 conservatives up against 20 democrats who voted for Obamacare.
Guys, I'm just letting you know that if you think Sarah Palin
