From the Party who brought you Strategic Redeployment comes a new piece for your cowardice library, Palin Hurt My Feelings, a collection of political analysts and Democrat supporters whining and complaining that a speech from a “Hockey Mom” went too far…
Well it is nice to see that the Republicans are pulling things together. Before Sarah Palin spoke last night, another strong female voice in politics, Ann Coulter, put out a great article on her opinion of John McCain’s running mate. While her and I don’t always agree on things, and while I do find her extreme at times, Ann Coulter really hit the nail on the head with this article.
Then they attacked her daughter, who actually is pregnant now, for being unmarried. When liberals start acting like they’re opposed to pre-marital sex and mothers having careers, you know McCain’s vice presidential choice has knocked them back on their heels.
With this support, everything seems to be finally coming together for the McCain/Palin campaign. Supporters, especially female voters, were excited and it showed. Former Mayor of New York City, Rudy Giuliani couldn’t even get through his speech without pausing on numerous occasions and wait for crowd applause to calm down. This was an exciting and emotionally charged moment, much like this one, when everyone was getting pumped up for what was to be a make or break speech, the most important speech Sarah Palin has made in her LONG history in the political arena (I saw that “jab” you CNN lackey). Well how did she do? In my opinion, very well, but don’t just take my word for it. Michelle Malkin also think so…
If there were ever a time to say “You go, girl!” — well, this is it.
To my surprise, even the women in the CNN press booth at the Republican convention were impressed. Campbell Brown, a CNN anchor, appeared to ACTUALLY defend Palin from criticism which Wolf Blitzer had about the Governor’s speech. One female correspondent even commented that her male colleagues were being sexist. CNN being sexist? John Roberts, do you know anyone at CNN who is being sexist? Even Anderson Cooper came out of hiding and discussed how he was impressed with Palin’s performance. I guess now that she has proved herself on the national stage, it is okay to support her, in even “Obama country”.
I was also taken back by how others, including Amy Holmes, were excited to see that Sarah Palin was a woman of character, that “she balanced femininity and strength”, and that her speech was “authentic”. A word that has not been attributed to any speech given at the DNC, not even Barack’s. It was also nice to see that even Piper Palin, Sarah’s youngest daughter, was fawned over by the press core. Various networks replayed that clip of her fixing baby Trigg’s hair, a moment that really warmed the hearts of even the coldest Democrats. This is far better treatment then they would have allowed themselves to give Bristol Palin, but I am sure now the Daily Kos and the Huffington Post is now insinuating that Piper is really Trigg’s mother (stay classy you guys). With all this excitement, surely the far-left wouldn’t try anything rash to “rain on her parade”…
Well gay hairstylists are in an uproar about her hair, and it doesn’t end there. Right after the speech, Wolf Blitzer of CNN wasn’t too happy either. He seemed adamant on discussing how “unfair” Palin had been to Obama, and that her attacks on his experience and stance on the issues were “low blows”. I would have to disagree, if Barack wants to tout his experience running a campaign as executive experience, I think she has the right to compare her years as a mayor and as a governor to it and see what the voters think. It gets even better, on Larry King, three “in the kitchen” Democrats, women who not only sold out their candidate, Hillary Clinton, but their gender for a ticket to Obama’s “love-fest”, decided to ignore the rest of Palin’s speech and attack her on the grounds that “selling a plane on eBay doesn’t mean she has the experience to be in the White House”. I also disagree with this assertion, especially having experience with eBay myself. Being a seller on that auction site requires far more talent then hiring people to run a campaign for office, and even if they want to continue ignoring her other accomplishments, she can whoop “The One” on experience on this alone. Isn’t the media bias a little too obvious now?
Let’s take a moment here and compare what Sarah Palin said in her speech to what the Obama campaign and there supporters have been saying since she was picked to be John McCain’s running mate. Let’s see who’s attacks are really “low blows”…
Palin: Obama doesn’t have the experience
Obama campaign: She is a Nazi sympathizer… HONESTLY!
Palin: Obama is working to forward his career, not the interests of the American people.
Obama campaign: Here is Palin’s personal information, GO HARASS HER MY FOLLOWERS, THE “O” COMMANDS IT
Palin: She joined the PTA to fight for a better education for her children
Obama Supporters: She can’t be a mother and a politician when she needs to be in the kitchen
Palin: Obama’s speech was phony, he got his props for it from his celebrity friends
Obama Supporters: Bristol Palin is actually the mother of Trigg, and she is pregnant again… So much for abstinence, she is a TRAMP!
Palin: Obama thinks he is “the second coming”…
Obama Supporters: Sarah Palin is the worst running mate in history… FOREVER
Let’s forget that the last statement is factless dribble. As I covered in my story, Myths and mayhem, none of these allegations even hold water. CNN wants to keep “Troopergate” in the spotlight, ignoring that the men they are promoting as victims are not only politically bent, but one used a taser on his step-son, HIS 11 YEAR-OLD STEP-SON. If you want to read about this non-issue and many others, once again, I wrote a post on it a few days ago. The “old boys” at CNN have been doing damage control since the speech last night and it is just downright pathetic, especially coming from Wolf Blitzer. I will say this, any respect I had for the man when he stood up to Micheal Moore is now gone in a disgusting display of partisan politics.
It doesn’t end there, this morning on CNN, Soledad O’Brien was discussing the speech with three political analysts, including Amy Holmes, and when the women mentioned how interesting they found Palin’s speech and how she fought back after a week of mistreatment, SOME OLD GUY (can’t remember who, to me though, he is just another tool in bipartisan clothing) broke up their conversation with a healthy reminder that “we put a black man on our ticket”. Excuse me? Who is calling who on “identity politics”? It’s pretty pathetic that they cling to the “race card” after all this talk about being above that. Stay classy you guys…
It is getting pretty sad, especially since all we have heard all day is whining from Obama supporters. What are they saying now? Well that being religious is a bad thing, attacking her on a speech she made in a church, a church which DIDN’T damn America or compare it to the worst evils our world has ever seen. I am sorry, but to all you non-believers who think America is secular and God-less, pull out a dollar bill and tell me what it says? In WHO do we trust? I will say this, my buddy Nick Carnes could tell you better than I can, and he has nothing to be ashamed about when he writes a posts on his religious beliefs. This attack is just sad, showing that his campaign has given up on trying to win the religious voters, no surprise he has surrendered that after his earlier comments on the issue. Presidents don’t run away, they stand up against criticism and if they have to, they apologize, SINCERELY and make amends for their mistakes. They don’t run and hide, hoping that their transgressions don’t catch up with them.
UPDATE: I did some digging and found something about the “change” Obama wants to bring to the White House. Democratic infighting really helped blow the lid off this guy. Thanks a lot Hillary Clinton.
Whatelse you say? Well who did the Democrats send out today to take on John McCain and Sarah Palin, who went to slowdown their momentum? None other then San Fransisco Mayor Gary Newsom, a man who earned the TRUE ire of Bill O’Reilly. How did he do that? Well he decided to put his personal beliefs above the safety of his own people, resulting in the death of three Americans and putting more dangerous drugs on the streets of his own city. Is that the “change” you promised your city Mayor Newsom? You want to criticize McCain and Palin for have a record of doing what is right, not what is popular? It is no surprise that after Fox broke the original story, this coward ran and hid, refusing to even apologize for his laps of judgment. Pathetic, just pathetic…
In any event, this all screams of desperation, but instead of actually taking on criticism, directly confronting it, Obama and his supporters are running away and whining about it. All day today we have seen, not Obama and Biden standing up to these attacks, but instead their disillusioned followers complaining about one thing or another. Tell me this, what, if anything, did either Giuliani or Palin say that isn’t true? It isn’t the mark of a leader to send others to fight your battles (John McCain was a WAR HERO, he went and fought OUR battles), it is the mark of a coward. You don’t get elected President when your campaign sends around a text message complaining about how someone criticized your lack of experience. As Paul Begala said tonight, “John McCain is a hero, Barack Obama isn’t”, and the proof of this has been in how “The One” has handled himself this last week following the announcement of Sarah Palin as John McCain’s running mate (I know it wasn’t the full quote, but I am trying to keep Begala honest here). If all this whining and complaining on his part has showed America anything, it is that cowards like Barack Obama and his supporters don’t belong in the White House. Yes I did insult you, want to keeping crying about it?
UPDATE: Seems the new polls are in and we can see why the Democrats are scared. A dead even race according to a new CBS poll, we have seen that lead Obama had gone the way of the dinosaurs. Best part is, it was done from Monday to Wednesday, not taking into account Palin’s speech. Scary isn’t it BreaktheTerror? Oh cute, they are calling the Republicans gay now… Remind me, who is the bigot again?
UPDATE: It also seems the “race card” is the Democrats stand-by. Barack pulled it out during a speech yesterday to remind us that it was his campaign that started the “identity politics” this election. Stay classy Obama…
UPDATE: Seems even “Hollywood and Friends” can see that Palin is the anti-Obama. You have to be pretty desperate to have THIS pushing your political agenda. Gotta love how he swings in low and attacks Bristol Palin… Stay Classy Euro Trash!
