Palin payback

Sarah's not retreating... she's reloading:

My fellow Americans in all 57 states, the time has changed for come. With our country founded more than 20 centuries ago, we have much to celebrate - from the FBI's 100 days to the reforms that bring greater inefficiencies to our health care system. We know that countries like Europe are willing to stand with us in our fight to halt the rise of privacy, and Israel is a strong friend of Israel's. And let's face it, everybody knows that it makes no sense that you send a kid to the emergency room for a treatable illness like asthma and they end up taking up a hospital bed. It costs, when, if you, they just gave, you gave them treatment early, and they got some treatment, and ah, a breathalyzer, or an inhalator. I mean, not a breathalyzer, ah, I don't know what the term is in Austrian for that...  

Of course, the paragraph above is based on a series of misstatements and verbal gaffes made by Barack Obama (I didn't have enough time to do one for Joe Biden). YouTube links are provided just in case you doubt the accuracy of these all too human slips-of-the-tongue. If you can't remember hearing about them, that's because for the most part the media didn't consider them newsworthy. I have no complaint about that. Everybody makes the occasional verbal gaffe - even news anchors.

Obviously, I would have been even more impressed if the media showed some consistency on this issue. Unfortunately, it seems they couldn't resist the temptation to turn a simple one word slip-of-the-tongue of mine into a major political headline. The one word slip occurred yesterday during one of my seven back-to-back interviews wherein I was privileged to speak to the American public about the important, world-changing issues before us.

If the media had bothered to actually listen to all of my remarks on Glenn Beck's radio show, they would have noticed that I refer to South Korea as our ally throughout, that I corrected myself seconds after my slip-of-the-tongue, and that I made it abundantly clear that pressure should be put on China to restrict energy exports to the North Korean regime. The media could even have done due diligence and checked my previous statements on the subject, which have always been consistent, and in fact even ahead of the curve. But why let the facts get in the way of a good story? (And for that matter, why not just make up stories out of thin air - like the totally false hard news story which has run for three days now reporting that I lobbied the producers of "Dancing with the Stars" to cast a former Senate candidate on their show. That lie is further clear proof that the media completely makes things up without doing even rudimentary fact-checking.)

"Hope springs eternal" as the poet says. Let's hope that perhaps, just maybe, they might get it right next time. When we the people are effective in holding America's free press accountable for responsible and truthful reporting, then we shall all have even more to be thankful for!

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

- Sarah Palin

Nicely done Ms. Palin... very nicely done. 

Hold the media accountable and show them to be the leftist hacks and water carriers for the Democrats that they truly are...  and please, continue to show how they do nothing but form a protective bubble around this incompetent President.

For Sarah Palin, it truly was a slip of the tongue. Anyone who's honest knows that's the case.

And conservatives don't care that Obama says 57 states and makes mistakes. It's going to happen, it's part of the territory.

But what the left will do and is doing is use this as ammunition against Sarah Palin. This way the left won't argue about ideas, what truly matters.

Rick Caird:

Unfortunately, most of those in the media who try to make a nothing into something are anonymous. It would be much more fun to watch if those people had to stand up and justify their position that a slip of the tongue between North Korea and South Korea was news.

But, they won't and Sarah is preaching to the converted. Still, the media continues to wonder why they have lost so much respect. In their arrogance, they are baffled by the loss of respect. For surely they respect each other.

Slip of the tongue or not is not the real issue. As a Tea Party member since April 2009 I do believe that there are many more eligible conservatives willing to run for President in 2012 that are more suited and qualifified in international matters than Sarah Palin. Although she is a great campainger for money for the conservative cause, she would be a distration if she were to run. The main goal in 2012 is to remove this left wing liberal from office and finally put the progressives to sleep for the next 100 years.

This is why I like and admire Sarah Palin. She fights. Unlike the other sackless wonders that comprise the GOP,

And when Palin fights. she does not accept her liberal enemies' assumptions, and does not let frame the debate. So the fight is always on her turf, not theirs.

Sarah Palin is poised to get the 2012 Republican nomination and win the job of President.

If you're not supporting her, you're not supporting America.

We're waiting: For the great white male hope to come riding in having communicated to America for many years the meaning of conservatism, having campaigned for candidates we believed in, having taken the best liberals had to dish out and shown courage and integrity throughout.

Got anything? Time's up, get your soup and sit down.
