Lefties Mock Palin & Ends Up Embarrassing Themselves

At a Tea Party rally on Monday in Nevada, Sarah Palin told the crowd to “don’t party like it’s 1773 yet” because we need more conservatives in the House/Senate. Anyway, PBS Washington correspondent and the moderator during the 2008 VP debate, Gwen Ifill, and other Lefties tweeted that Palin had made a gaffe.

WTF??

How can one not deduced the fact that when Palin mentioned “1773,” she clearly meant the Boston Tea Party when *ahem* she’s speaking at a TEA PARTY rally.

All these Lefties were thinking of 1776, the year the Declaration of Independence was signed. Again *ahem* that has NOTHING to do with taxes. Palin has been stumping across America to get voters to vote against higher taxes by electing common-sense conservatives to the House & Senate on Nov. 2nd.

Lefties think they’re so smart, but ends up making an ass out of themselves and ABC, MSNBC, etc. doesn’t even talk about it.

MUST READS: NewsBusters take on it.

Also, I’m not fond of Christine O’Donnell, but “separation of church and state” is not written literally in the Constitution. Coons couldn’t even name the protections of the 1st Amendment when challenged by O’Donnell. All he could mutter was “freedom of religion” (and quickly changed the subject) when any grade school kid can tell you that “freedom of speech” is also included. And of course, the easy one is “freedom of the press.” BUT you’ll hear/read NONE of his “lack of knowledge” in the headlines!!!

I’m not religious, but what’s wrong with teaching the “divine theory” in class if Darwin’s theory is introduced? The Constitution would not allow public school teachers to teach students their personal faith, but if you teach “religion” as a study, then it’s fine. I wouldn’t care if Creationism is taught alongside Darwin’s theory. Why not? Let people decide for themselves where we came from.

God Parting the Waters for Sarah – Levi, Watch Out!

I don’t consider myself a religious person, but it’s hard to ignore the many signs that God may be parting the waters for Sarah Palin to rise above.  And here is why:

Everyone who dismissed Palin as the next star of the Republican Party began to put Louisiana governor, Bobby Jindal, on a pedestal.  He was a fresh face.  Young and of a minority race.  He was asked to present the Republican rebuttal to Obama’s State of the Union address.  His national political debut completely bombed on him.  He sounded and looked very uncomfortable, and he was compared to nerd boy, Kenneth Page, from Tina Fey’s Emmy Award-winning show, “30 Rock.”  The left-wing pundits laughed, “This is your star?”  After that, there wasn’t much mention of Jindal anymore.  He has recently announced that he will not be joining the 2012 presidential race.

Then came the most shocking surprise of all.  South Carolina governor, Mark Sanford, the one who fought tooth and nail to reject the infamous Obama stimulus package and who was regarded as a viable presidential candidate for 2012, came out with a jaw-dropping announcement that came totally out of left field.  In his nervously, rambling press conference, he confessed to having an extramarital affair with an Argentinian woman he called his “soulmate.”  This news was as completely unexpected as Palin’s resignation.

Finally, there is Shannyn Moore, the Alaskan blogger for the Huffington Post who has her own radio talk show (and calls herself an “ordinary American” like all of us average Joes have our own radio talk shows.  Yeah, Shannyn, you are so “ordinary.”)  She is often used as the “expert” for Alaska politics in liberal news venues.  After the announcement of Palin’s resignation, Moore wrote on her Twitter page, “I know the nature of the scandal.  Timing, baby, timing.”  She also wrote  a piece in the Huffington Post to unleash an old rumor about an FBI investigation regarding the Palins and the Wasilla Sports Complex that she assumed may be the cause of Palin’s immediate resignation.  Palin said the speculation of such a serious scandal hit her “like a ton of bricks.”  Before letting the malicious rumor grow its own set of legs, Palin’s personal attorney immediately fired back a warning to major news outlets about repeating the baseless rumors.  After this incident, it is evident that Shannyn Moore’s credibility as the Alaska “expert” has tanked to the bottom of the tundra.

With obstacles and competition dropping one by one like flies, it appears that God is indeed parting the waters for this charismatic, moose-hunting, gun-toting governor from the land of the midnight sun.

And if this is so, Levi Johnston, who’s out there trying to extend his 15 minutes of fame by spreading Palin gossip, had better watch out for he may be the next fly to die.

Popularity of the Underdog

As a frequent Twitter user, I’ve noticed that since Sarah Palin announced her resignation, her Twitter followers grew from an estimated 41,000 to now over 93,000.  It doesn’t matter if these followers include non-supporters.  What does matter is that someone is interested in what she has to say. This doesn’t come as a surprise to me that when Palin appears defeated, her popularity rises.

Why?  Because it happened to me.

As a  lifelong Democrat, I never cared for a Republican presidential or vice-presidential candidate.  In my liberally shallow mind, Republicans were arrogant, rich folks who didn’t give a damn about the middle class.  So when my choice for the Democrat ticket loss to Barrack Obama, my allegience turned towards him.  I laughed along when my sister showed me the Saturday Night Live clip of Tina Fey imitating Sarah Palin’s infamous Katie Couric’s interview. When the Vice-Presidential Debate was on, I was intently glued to the radio on my way home from work and to the TV when I got home just to watch the circus show.  Not knowing anything about politics, my immediate instincts told me that Joe Biden won the debate because of his air of confidence.  Little did I know that Biden’s constant laughter and smile meant admitting defeat from a sucker punch thrown by Palin.

When the show was over, I somehow felt really bad for her.  I started to wonder why in the world would John McCain pick someone so ill-prepared as his running mate.

I quickly did a Wikipedia search on her and was immediately blown away by her accomplishments and character.  Suddenly, I was on her side and rooting for a ticket I never thought in a million years I would.  For the first time in my adult life, I was going to vote Republican, a thought that made my former coworker cringe like I had the cooties.  I can now see through the lens of the conservative viewpoint and it makes so much more sense to me economically.  I saw the power that Palin had.  I saw what less than 20% of the Democrats and more than 70% of the Republicans who favored her saw – a woman who has integrity, strength, courage, charisma and most importantly, honesty.

To this day, months after the election and months after the inauguration of our country’s first African-American president, I remain a faithful, loyal supporter of Governor Sarah Palin.  I may not agree with everything she says, but I know she is not your typical politician who says one thing and does another.  She is plain-spoken, full of energy, and the closest thing to an honest politician we’ll ever get in this century.

Why not embrace such a character?  Why not embrace the “storm” that comes only once a millennium?

I am sure that more than half of those Twitter users who added Palin to their following list over the July 4th holiday weekend had the same revelation I had back in late October of 2008.  And it is with this revelation about her from the many hearts around the country, that can build a strong grassroots movement to get her elected, if she so chooses, as America’s first female president.
