And first, some straight talk for some, just some in the media because another right protected for all of us is freedom of the press, and you all have such important jobs reporting facts and informing the electorate, and exerting power to influence. You represent what could and should be a respected honest profession that could and should be the cornerstone of our democracy. Democracy depends on you, and that is why, that's why our troops are willing to die for you. So, how 'bout in honor of the American soldier, ya quit makin' things up.Big Media has been apoplectic since those words passed her lips. "How dare she question them?" "What did we do to her?" "We just report the news." Not a word is said as Barry Vladimir Hussein Soetero Obama attacks FoxNews, talk radio, and Conservative pundits. However, when Sarah Palin challenged the credibility of Big Media all hell broke loose. In their eyes, it isn't a lie unless they choose to report it (just ask Dan Rather).
In Big Media's insulated echo chamber, they all dislike Palin because she didn't go to the right schools, doesn't represent socialist ideology, and doesn't pander to the political and social elites. Katie, Wolf, "Stretch Gregory, Stephanopolous, Brian, Charlie and the rest of the arrogant talking heads can sneer at Palin and her supporters, but those are the people who are no longer watching those slimey blowhards. REAL Americans don't care what these news readers think of Palin or of them. Flyover America gets it. They know CNN, CBS, NBC, ABC, and MSNBC newscasts have all the legitimacy of a Vince McMahon-produced WWE program. The fix is in and has been for a long time. Big Media has become a dutiful wing of the DNC. They just repeat what Rahmbo and the Family Guy tell them to say.
While flipping channels and listening to some of the discussion panels a comical pattern of irony developed. One after another, these snobbish clowns trashed Palin for whining about her treatment. Read the text of the speech and judge for yourself how much of it was "whiny." But, they immediately jumped into how unfair her attacks on the media are and how paranoid she is. The buzzword of the Monday morning faxes from the DNC to Big Media must have been "Nixonian." They accused her of sniveling while they moaned about how they just do their job and attacks on them are a return to the days of Tricky Dick and Spiro.
I have written several posts about Palin, so one might get the idea I am in her corner for 2012. They would not be accurate. She certainly understands conservatism. She understands American history and the U.S. Constitution. She understands the American values that still matter in Flyover America, if not in the newsrooms of Big Media. Real Americans are drawn to Sarahcuda. She is one of us. This is especially appealing nine months after we elected a community organizer who does not appreciate American values, is not very bright, and who is attempting to foist every failed policy in human history on my country. He is not one of us; he is a Marxist.
Palin may or may not be the future of the GOP. However, her brand of Conservatism is our only hope. She gets it. Prissy David Frum may think Republicans should always position themselves one step to the right of the Democrats no matter how far to the Left they try to take the country. That is irresponsible, dangerous and politically stupid. The Republican Party needs to be an alternative for those who believe in the Constitution, the rule of law, limited government, individual responsibility, the sovereignty of states and ideals recorded in our Declaration of Independence. If folks want Marxism, they will vote Democrat. The disconnect between the 2006 and 2008 election returns and polls relating to key issues tell the story. America is a Conservative country. The Republican Party abdicated the high ground on so many issues because no matter how many elections they won, they governed as though they had to please Democrats.
Big Media will continue to hate Sarah Palin. That is because they hate the American people. They will never say it, but they see us as a bunch of hayseeds who listen to country music, eat at buffets and prefer pick-up trucks to Priuses. They are the elites and they can't understand why the rabble doesn't just listen to them and do as they are told. They built a celebrity-type groundswell to elect Barry Vladimir Hussein Soetero Obama. It was hype not hope. Palin represents the real hope of Real Americans.
