The Left’s Nightmare
The Left’s breakdown over all things Palin was as predictable as it is encouraging. To paraphrase Obama, they are embittered, clinging to their lies and disdain all things patriotic and all things religious. They have a deep antipathy toward those in power who happen to be Christian, rural, Republican, or in a uniform of any kind. Their pro-amnesty, heartfelt anti-Americanism is the reason for the tidal wave of energy and enthusiasm that McCain’s selection of Gov. Sarah Palin has unleashed.
Imagine the Left’s pain and suffering, hearing the growing crowds chanting USA-USA-USA! A year ago the liberals were crowing about the pending defeat of American forces in Iraq. But then Obama admitted the troop surge was successful. Now they’re cowering over what looks like an American troop victory and the pending defeat of Obama by, of all things, an old war hero.
Their embedded talking heads in the media are publicly sharpening their knives, snickering to themselves about how they are going to slice and dice Palin. ABC’s Charles Gibson, looking down his nose at this woman who’d dared to stand up and be counted, could hardly control his disdain. He was playing for the media elites to prove his creds against this conservative woman, but he, like they, don’t realize exactly what the American public is suddenly holding on to, not clinging to, but embracing with all their hearts and souls.
For it is not so much who Sarah Palin is, but what she is. She is the everyman and woman that built this great country. She is the embodiment of every great Frank Capra movie, the Mrs. Smith going to Washington, the average Jolin going up against the big city snobs, the K Sreet and Wall Street power brokers, the sexists and effete bigoted haters of our military who provide and protect their way of life. She might not have a $28,000 per seat fundraiser sponsored by Barbara Streisand, but she has won a priceless seat at the table of every average American’s table.
And though $9 million may be raked in by Streisand, that’s only from 250 people. This election will take much more than Hollywood’s elites to find victory.
The Left sees in Palin eerie parallels to Ronald Reagan. A common-sense, plain talking former sportscaster who is shattering the near Biblical certainty that their time had come to control America. A woman whose very stage presence is more powerful than a speeding bullet and has given Americans the chance to jump over the Left’s control of the media and communicate their approval with wild applause and chanting, which no manner of media tricks can edit away.
The Left clings to their white wine and brie views that have been fueled by their envious desire to be more like their European deadweight counterparts. Obama’s Berlin speech had them genuflecting before maps of the EU. Now Palin, by simple being herself, has them hearing nightmarish whispers of au revoir, auf wiedersehen, hasta luego, toodle-loo and don’t let the capital door hit you on the way out to their we-are-citizens-of-the-world dreams.
