In my last blog (Boooorrrrriiinnngggg) I talked about the regurgitation of the same old, same old from the media in their attacks on Sarah Palin. I'm definitely not the first to write or talk about the talking points that everyone in the mainstream media and friends must receive. Many of us are intelligent enough to pick up on it when the media, the progressives, the libs, the left, whatever you want to call 'em, start spitting out the same thoughts over and over.
I flipped on the TV this morning as I was putting on my socks and shoes to walk on the treadmill and lo and behold, I heard the current lib mantra come from the mouth of yet another pundit!
I didn't catch the speaker's last name, her first name was Julie, and she was on Fox and Friends this AM talking about Sarah's latest interview. Julie's ending shot? Sarah needs to go away for two years and reinvent herself.
Gosh, isn't that what Robert Schlesinger, U.S. News, said in HIS blog? Gosh, isn't that what they're all saying on that side of the media aisle these days?
Memo to "progressives" --- Sarah isn't going away.
She burst onto the scene like a breath of fresh air (heard that one before? see I can repeat stuff, too ;-). Seriously, she is what most of us want our politicians to be... real. We want people who know how we live, who are in touch with our needs. We want people who stick to their principles. We want politicians with a backbone who will stand up for what is right.
Usually, by the time we hear someone's name in the media, or they make it to elected office on the state or national level, they're not the person we elected. They've learned to play the games, to compromise. They've learned the art of justifying their actions for the greater good or whatever blarney they feed themselves. They've learned how to placate just the right number of people to stay in office another term "because they haven't finished what they were elected to do for the people" or some such drivel.
Every time a liberal attacks Sarah, another large group joins in to defend her. A new website pops up, a new conservative activist is energized. Every bit of garbage that is thrown at her rebounds like a boomerang onto the faces of those doing the tossing.
They just can't help themselves, can they? I said in my last blog, if they really wanted her to go away they'd stop talking about her. Truth be told, they can't stop themselves from talking about her. Neither can we!
