Why We Love Sarah Palin

Liberals are foaming at the mouth with their hatred for Sarah Palin. Interestingly enough, the very thing about her that drives them insane is what makes conservatives like us love her. Take this for example:

When federal judges in San Francisco ruled in 2002 that reciting the Pledge of Allegiance in public schools was unconstitutional because it included the phrase "under God," Sarah Palin was not amused. Palin, who at the time was Mayor of Wasilla, Alaska, quickly drafted a terse letter to the editor of a San Francisco newspaper.

"Dear Editor," Palin wrote in 2002. "San Francisco judges forbidding our Pledge of Allegiance? They will take the phrase 'under God' away from me when my cold, dead lips can no longer utter those words," Palin wrote.

"God Bless America," she concluded.

Sarah Palin needs to brush up on her constitutional law. So does whatever fool tried to require the Pledge in SF public schools.

Mandatory recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance in public school, with or without "under God," was ruled unconstitutional by the Supreme Court of the United States in 1943. See West Virginia School Board v. Barnett. And don't anybody say it was an anti-religion decision -- the Barnetts were Jehovah's Witnesses, who argued successfully that the Pledge amounted to blasphemy under the very strict rules of their fundamentalist sect.

I do not hate her; I disagree with her because, as this post is demonstrating, her appeal to conservatives rests in her enthusiastic participation in culture wars.

Mostly, I am concerned because I do not think culture issues are our most pressing concern. One thing I like about McCain is he strikes me not only as honest, but as not interested in fighting about cultural issues. I just do not get that impression one bit from Palin but rather the opposite; she seems to be exclusively interested in what the latest craziness from the 9th circuit is.

Anyone want to make a bet that more people involved in bankrupting the country graduated from the failed institutions of 'elitest' education that from the colleges Palin attended.

Wake up Ryan, the letter was several years ago and I haven't heard her commenting on the 9th Circus.

Some of the liberals need to look around the Nations capitol and see how may have references to 'God' on them. But then that might not be a good idea, Hussein and Ayers along with the anti-american democrat party might start bombing them.

ORyan -

Seems like there's only two solutions to a 'culture war'. The third one - co-existance - doesn't seem to be applicable any more, BECAUSE there's plenty of people willing to fight it out. With each side thinking IT is right, and ONLY it is right, then you're left with two choices.

You can either capitulate to the other side, or conquer and make your beliefs the custom.

Now, I don't know about you, but I don't see Palin as being either a cultural conquerer or capitulator. She has the courage of her convictions, but her demonstrating them doesn't force compliance in anyone else. SHE can coexist with others (except moose, apparently)

If you're offended by the demonstration of HER convictions, you might want to look deep inside yourself to find out just why they are so offensive to you.

Because there's a hell of a lot of people out there looking to impose THEIR cultural standards on the US, willing to slaughter by the thousands to do so, and those standards are nowhere near so benign as a simple "Under God" in the the Pledge of Allegiance.

Palin's Pledge-of-Allegiance rant was a commonly held view at the time.
The whole text is filled with ideas like that. It's so wierd, it's like they really are living in another world. Here's another:
The documents shed light on the management style--and personality--of the small town mayor turned vice presidential candidate.
That one reminds me of when the marxist media used to -as instructed by their liberal government masters- refer to the GOPs' "Contract WITH America" as "The contract ON America". They get their talking points, and they dutifully insert them like the lapdogs they are. Rush Limbaugh can play -anytime they take the time to put it together- a seemingly endless series of recordings of the lib media spouting THE EXACT SAME WORDS, all of which are designed to tear down -via instant axiom construction- anyone or anything that represents American exceptionalism or traditions. Here's one from today where they abuse the phrase, "Hail Mary Pass". You libs may notice it includes Fox News Channel contributor, Charles Krauthammer. So much for the "rightwing cabal".

On a side note, Ducharme, what makes someone a "man of God"? Just curious. Do you give that title to yourself after you build up some followers and sell a few books? Please let me know.

"Witchcraft is a sad reality in many parts of Africa, resulting in scores of deaths in Kenya over the past two decades. Bishop Muthee's blessing, then, was simply a reflection of his cultural understanding of evil. While others are not obliged to accept his interpretation, all can be expected to respect it. More than that - Muthee should be hailed for asking God to shield Palin from harmful forces, however they may be manifested." -- Bill Donahue

"Magic spells don't kill people, although people like Bill Donohue and Sarah Palin apparently believe that they do. Thomas Muthee may have claimed that a woman used satanic magic to cause automobile accidents in Kiambu, Kenya, and Sarah Palin's church may regard that claim as credible, but rational people regard such allegations as absurd, and no just court of law would ever convict a person of the crime of casting such supposed violent magical spells." --Irregulartimes.com

Caribou Barbie is hot, I'll give you that. To play on an earlier post, I'd do her, voter for Obama-Biden, and then do her again.

Palin Problem
She's out of her league.

By Kathleen Parker

If at one time women were considered heretical for swimming upstream against feminist orthodoxy, they now face condemnation for swimming downstream -- away from Sarah Palin.

To express reservations about her qualifications to be vice president -- and possibly president -- is to risk being labeled anti-woman.

Or, as I am guilty of charging her early critics, supporting only a certain kind of woman.

Some of the passionately feminist critics of Palin who attacked her personally deserved some of the backlash they received. But circumstances have changed since Palin was introduced as just a hockey mom with lipstick -- what a difference a financial crisis makes -- and a more complicated picture has emerged.

As we've seen and heard more from John McCain's running mate, it is increasingly clear that Palin is a problem. Quick study or not, she doesn't know enough about economics and foreign policy to make Americans comfortable with a President Palin should conditions warrant her promotion.

Yes, she recently met and turned several heads of state as the United Nations General Assembly convened in New York. She was gracious, charming and disarming. Men swooned. Pakistan's president wanted to hug her. (Perhaps Osama bin Laden is dying to meet her?)

And, yes, she has common sense, something we value. And she's had executive experience as a mayor and a governor, though of relatively small constituencies (about 6,000 and 680,000, respectively).

Finally, Palin's narrative is fun, inspiring and all-American in that frontier way we seem to admire. When Palin first emerged as John McCain's running mate, I confess I was delighted. She was the antithesis and nemesis of the hirsute, Birkenstock-wearing sisterhood -- a refreshing feminist of a different order who personified the modern successful working mother.

Palin didn't make a mess cracking the glass ceiling. She simply glided through it.

It was fun while it lasted.

Palin's recent interviews with Charles Gibson, Sean Hannity, and now Katie Couric have all revealed an attractive, earnest, confident candidate. Who Is Clearly Out Of Her League.

No one hates saying that more than I do. Like so many women, I've been pulling for Palin, wishing her the best, hoping she will perform brilliantly. I've also noticed that I watch her interviews with the held breath of an anxious parent, my finger poised over the mute button in case it gets too painful. Unfortunately, it often does. My cringe reflex is exhausted.

Palin filibusters. She repeats words, filling space with deadwood. Cut the verbiage and there's not much content there. Here's but one example of many from her interview with Hannity: "Well, there is a danger in allowing some obsessive partisanship to get into the issue that we're talking about today. And that's something that John McCain, too, his track record, proving that he can work both sides of the aisle, he can surpass the partisanship that must be surpassed to deal with an issue like this."

When Couric pointed to polls showing that the financial crisis had boosted Obama's numbers, Palin blustered wordily: "I'm not looking at poll numbers. What I think Americans at the end of the day are going to be able to go back and look at track records and see who's more apt to be talking about solutions and wishing for and hoping for solutions for some opportunity to change, and who's actually done it?"

If BS were currency, Palin could bail out Wall Street herself.

If Palin were a man, we'd all be guffawing, just as we do every time Joe Biden tickles the back of his throat with his toes. But because she's a woman -- and the first ever on a Republican presidential ticket -- we are reluctant to say what is painfully true.

What to do?

McCain can't repudiate his choice for running mate. He not only risks the wrath of the GOP's unforgiving base, but he invites others to second-guess his executive decision-making ability. Barack Obama faces the same problem with Biden.

Only Palin can save McCain, her party, and the country she loves. She can bow out for personal reasons, perhaps because she wants to spend more time with her newborn. No one would criticize a mother who puts her family first.

When they STOP their "fact-challenged" ranting and actually put up positives from their VICE-presidential candidate, maybe I'll think they have something. As it stands, the conservative VICE-presidential candidate is exponentially more qualified than the liberal choice for the actual presidency. It has not been successfully rebutted because it cannot be.

She scares the left not because of their claims of inexperience, but because she is a formidable opponent. They thought they had the election in the bag with their (much MORE inexperienced) candidate, and Sarah has taken that from them.

It's like taking a new, but potentially harmful toy away from a child... They don't understand WHY it may be dangerous for them (and don't care). They still have tantrums.

Promoted college aid and loan programs allows families to deduct on their annual income tax returns up to $10,000 per year in higher education expenses. His "Kids 2000" legislation established a public/private partnership to provide computer centers, teachers, Internet access, and technical training to young people, particularly to low-income and at-risk youth.

Obama:

Introduced two initiatives bearing his name: Lugar-Obama, which expanded the Nunn-Lugar cooperative threat reduction concept to conventional weapons.

The Coburn-Obama Transparency Act, which authorized the establishment of USAspending.gov, a web search engine on federal spending.

With Senators Thomas R. Carper, Tom Coburn, and John McCain, Obama introduced follow-up legislation: Strengthening Transparency and Accountability in Federal Spending Act of 2008.
