Palin: From Nobody to Hero in No Time

While the Alaska Governor wasn’t quite nobody last week (some of our readers had been pushing her for VP as long ago as July 2007), a “week ago,” according to Rasmussen reports, “most Americans had never heard of” her.  Today, she’s more popular than Barack Obama or John McCain.

Obama is no longer “the only ‘rock star’ in presidential politics this year.”  More than forty million people tuned in to hear her speak Wednesday night, a “huge audience [rivaling] that for Obama’s address at the Democratic National Convention six days earlier.”

And the media, trying to destroy her, set her up for success. They, Peggy said, “overstepped: . . . . In the end it made Palin the underdog, and gave her the perfect platform for the perfect dive she made Wednesday night.

Her speech, telling her story, taking on her rival with passion and humor, articulating conservative ideas in a straightforward and energetic way has made her a new hero for Republicans, indeed, if my e-mail is any indication for a good number of non-Republicans as well.

We love her feistiness, we love her humor, we love her sincerity, we love her story, we love her accomplishments.  And the media notwithstanding, we love her family.

She has earned her affection in a matter of moments because John McCain recognized those qualities and plucked her for relative obscurity to join him on our party’s ticket.  As the Arizona Senator himself said, “I’m very proud to have introduced our next Vice President to the country. But I can’t wait until I introduce her to Washington.”  Let me repeat.  Neither can we.

Even Rush Limbaugh, no fan of John McCain is excited, calling the GOP nominee McBriliant:

This lady has turned it all around.  And I’m here to tell you today that John McCain, from now on, on this program, regarding this choice, will be known as John McBrilliant.  This was a brilliant choice on the part of Senator McCain . . . . he let Sarah Palin fire both barrels. . . .  The Democrats are doing everything they can to discredit Sarah Palin because it was somebody else wrote the speech.  Somebody else from the Bush campaign, somebody named Scully.  Well, I don’t care who wrote the speech.  The speech was about her life.  A speechwriter cannot make that up.  A speechwriter cannot tell that.

And that’s why we love her. All of a sudden she appears on the national stage and delivers a boffo performance.

And the media, eager to destroy her, made it all possible. They got the American people curious and rather than trust the MSM, they trusted their own eyes and ears. We watched, we listened, we loved.

  1. They represent change? Change from what? they can’t even admit the GWB has been the worst president we’ve ever had and *that’s* the change they’re talking about.

    Hey Kevin, I tell you what – if the Obama / Biden team admit Carter was the worst President in history before the McCain / Palin team say the same about GWB, I’ll buy you a burger.

    Careful, sonicfrog. Considering his more recent acts of treason against this country, “worst President in history” would be a promotion for Carter.

  3. “Dude – Micheal Savage f*ckin HATES you ”

    No he doesn’t. He hates you and your fucking sticking your nose into other people’s business.

    Telling them what they can think, what they can read, what they can listen to.

    Just because I’m gay you think you can dictate my life to me?

    Would you tell a straight person waht to do listen to?

    i doubt it.

    I fucking can’t stand people like YOU.

  4. Vince P, you cannot with any honesty or integrity say that Michael Savage does not hate LGBT people. I don’t care how much you agree with his other vomit but if you deny this then you certainly are totally a self-loathing doormat.

    Sean P, every issue that Kevin mentioned, and that you blew off as him complaining about how screwed up America is, is the reality that confronts most of use every single day. Perhaps you are lucky enough to not have to deal with this, or you’re just too callous to care about the citizens of this country or you’re just too damn stupid to notice but that changes nothing. People want to know what a candidate is going to do about ALL the issues, not just the one that your party exploits each election year.

  5. Dave , he can’t stand LEFTIST gays..

    Why do you Lefties think everyone is as feeble minded as you are?

    You probably haven’t even listned to him for an hour… so i really doubt you know his full view on the subject

    And yet.. you presume to tell me what the man is all about.

    And another thing… who cares what I think about him. Why are you people so insistant upon everyone thinking the same thing about someone?

    What do you care if I thnk he hates gay people are not? Are you boss of my opiniosn and values?

    **** off.

    I’m in a real sour mood with you out of control hateful Leftists.. after the insane coordinted-with-the-press smear job against Palin. Talk about hate! The Left lives in hate.. bathes in hate… consumed by hate.

    Only hate could keep people so obssessed with destroying decent women.

  6. It’s incredibly odd to me that there are gay people who rally behind people who want nothing to do with them. Vince even quoted Micheal Savage and said “I can only tolerate him in small doses”

    Small Doses????

  9. #53: Oh really, Dave? Those are the REAL ISSUES that confront “most of us every day” huh? So let’s see:

    The mortgage crisis. I don’t know about you Dave, but I didn’t take out a home loan I couldn’t afford. But apparently my tax dollars are going to be used to fix that problem and that’s the plan from both Republicans and Democrats, so I really don’t see how either party has anything to offer anyone on that issue. Well, except those crybabies who wanted to live large and now want a handout to make it all better.

    The continuing loss of jobs. Hmmm. So, if I don’t have a job, raising corporate taxes (which is Obama’s plan) is going to encourage companies to go on hiring sprees? Excellent plan.

    The continuing decline of America’s infrastructure. Dave, please, tell us all how this affects “most of us every single day.” I know I lie awake at night, desperately concerned about America’s infrastructure. I often wake up in a cold sweat, screaming, “What about America’s infrastructure!!!!” So, what is Obama’s plan to save America’s infrastructure? Do you know? I don’t? Although I’m sure that spending money on fighting our enemies had something to do with it. If only we would stop killing people who are trying to destroy the West–then we would have the money to properly support America’s infrastructure. We could build hospitals and schools with all that money wasted on this useless, fabricated “War On Terror.” (We might even have enough money left over to paint bulls’ eyes on top of them too!)

    The decline of the economy and the weakening of the dollar. Again, explain to me how Obama expects to solve this problem? Oh yeah, that’s right. He’s going to tax us into reckless, abundant prosperity! I can hardly wait. (cont.)

  10. (cont.) America’s loss of status as a leader for freedom and democracy. Yes, Dave. Like you, I spend the better part of my day deeply concerned over whether French people like America. They told us not to go into Iraq but we did it anyway, and well, what now?! How on Earth do we win back their affection (as if we ever had it)? Of course, we’ve since learned that they were against the War because many of their corporations had sweetheart deals buying black market oil from Hussein. But I’m less concerned with that “every day” than I am with whether French people think America is really, really cool. Given a choice between defending our nation from its enemies or being sneered at by the French, well–I’d risk an Al-Qaeda attack long before I’d risk the disdain of European people with groovy accents.

    The marginalization of the everyday citizen of this country. You mean like how Palin and her family are being treated by Obama and the Left? Yes, I agree, that is a problem. I hope Obama has a plan to deal with the relentless sexism, elitism, rumor-mongering and lies of….well, his own party.

    And as for wanting to know what a candidate is going to do about ALL of the issues, not just the one the Republicans “exploit” every election year, we already have the answer to what Obama is going to do about Islamic Jihadists–NOTHING. Afterall, as Kevin said, it’s a real YAWNFEST. It’s just SOUNDS and FEELS better to talk about the REAL ISSUES–like American Infrastructure, for example.

    The problem with ignorant f-wads like you and Kevin is that you’re too f-ing stupid to realize that it’s BECAUSE of how Bush responded to that 9/11 “YAWNFEST” that you dip-sh*ts have the luxury to complain about things like “infrastructure” and “marginalization.” You speak about the terrorist threat like Bush just made it up and decided it would be the centerpiece of his administration–an issue that Republicans have “exploited” to the point where is has become a “yawnfest” for you pathetic, little sleepy-heads. But that “issue” hit this country and Bush’s administration hard on 9/11 and it is not a coincidence that there has not been a terrorist attack on US soil in the 7 and 1/2 years since. You and Kevin should be kissing Bush’s feet right now because without his response to 9/11, you two Kos Kids wouldn’t get to spend the day bitching about gay rights, or the environment or those evil, homicidal Christians you hate so much.

    So when someone like Kevin treats the security of this nation like some Republican Party strategy that was spontaneously cooked-up to get votes, instead of THE ISSUE THAT AFFECTS ALL OTHER ISSUES, he needs to be informed that he’s a dim-witted homo. Accordingly, when people like you refer to Republicans “exploiting” the issue of terrorism as though it’s nothing more than anti-Muslim fear-mongering, instead of the most important issues we face, you also need to be told that you are a dim-witted homo.

    Dave, you’re a dim-witted homo.

  18. Hey Dave and Kevin, why is it that the places in America with the worst schools, the most decayed infrastructure, the worst crime, and the worst poverty are the urban areas that have been run for generations by progressive Democrats; places like Buffalo, Rochester NY, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Newark, Camden NJ, East St. Louis, and of course, Detroit?

    Consider Detroit, which has not had a Republican mayor since the 1960s. If Democrats are so great, why is Detroit such a hellhole? Perhaps, one should ask Detroit mayor Kwame Kilpatrick, praised by Obama as an “outstanding” mayor. And if you really want to ask Kwame, visiting hours at the Wayne County Jail are Tuesdays and Thursdays.

    I note that the southside of Chicago, beneficiary of so much of the Obamassiah’s community organizing and representation in the state legislature… hasn’t exactly become a model urban community. In fact, more Americans were murdered in Chicago this summer than died in Iraq.

  19. By the way, Dave, if these issues are such a concern to you on a daily basis then it shouldn’t be too difficult for you to briefly explain for us how Obama plans to “fix” all of it. So, let’s have it. What’s he planning to do? First he was against drilling, but now he’s for it. First, he was going to meet with Ahmadinejad without pre-conditions, but now he will send an envoy or something. First, he was going to raise capital gains taxes, but Charlie Gibson informed him that it will result in less revenues for the government, so is that still on the table? Is he for victory in Iraq (which is currently within arm’s reach), or is he going to bail out immediately? What about unemployment? We know he plans to raise corporate taxes–is that still the plan, and is so, do you support that? What about gay rights? He’s on the record against gay marriage, but you guys seem over the moon for the guy–WHY? What about immigration? Open borders? Amnesty? Do you have any idea what he’s going to do? Can you please share his plans with the rest of us? I know that if Obama is elected, he’s planning a fantastic inauguration speech–but after that it gets a little hazy. I suspect you have NO IDEA what he’s planning to do, just like every other Obama supporter.

    Comment by Sean A — September 6, 2008 @ 3:57 pm - September 6, 2008

  20. And one more thing…where does Obama stand on earmarks? I understand he’s come out swinging against McCain and Palin on the earmarks issue:

    http://hotair.com/archives/2008/09/06/guy-who-requested-740-million-in-earmarks-on-palin-you-cant-really-be-for-change-if-youre-pro-earmark/

    The only problem is that he’s REQUESTED $740 million in earmarks himself. Any comments on this issue? Or is it that your candidate can say or do whatever he wants without fear of criticism or hypocrisy, Dave? Tell me again, why on Earth would you vote for such a shameless loser?

( I Love the visual of the President interviewing lines of teachers in the Oval Office) Plus he was going to cure diseases. With the 3rd of 4 Hurricanes coming towards the Gulf, for the life of me I don’t know why he isn’t on the coast holding up both hands protecting us from the distruction.

  25. The Founding Fathers set up the country knowing that Big Government oppresses the people. They wanted limited government. In the Federalist Papers there are many descriptions of the first priority of the government to protect it’s citizens from attack from abroad and to keep them safe in their homes. Everthing else is secondary. If asked, leftists say governments first act is to protect their rights. No one has rights if you are under seige from a foreign power, terrorists. Or scared silly by outlaws. I’ve said here before that most liberals and Democrats are under educated. It’s not their fault. They don’t know what they don’t know. Gay rights, heathcare for all, streets plowed of snow, national flood insurance, free school lunches. None o fit matters much if you are hiding under you bed, or your family is being kidnapped by islamo fascists. It is conservative Presidents that have their priorities straight. One of Bill Clintons’ 4 major accomplishments in 8 years was the family leave act. While the first Trade Towers attack happended and the Cole was bombed. Like the man said in a Few Good Men

    Col. Jessep: Son, we live in a world that has walls, and those walls have to be guarded by men with guns. Whose gonna do it? You? You, Lt. Weinburg? I have a greater responsibility than you could possibly fathom. You weep for Santiago, and you curse the marines. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know. That Santiago’s death, while tragic, probably saved lives. And my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, saves lives. You don’t want the truth because deep down in places you don’t talk about at parties, you want me on that wall, you need me on that wall. We use words like honor, code, loyalty. We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punchline. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very freedom that I provide, and then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather you just said thank you, and went on your way, Otherwise, I suggest you pick up a weapon, and stand a post. Either way, I don’t give a damn what you think you are entitled to.

    I am still waiting for Sen. Obama’s plans to be made known. Is he going to ask that all sides get along like his plan for Georgia/Russia? Or is he going to argue that the attacker needs to stop attacking, well, like his second plan for Georgia/Russia?

    Is he going to raise corporate taxes, despite being told to his face that they crush the economy?

    Is he going to go after Insurance companies who manage medicare? Despite the fact that we do it faster, cheeper, better?

    Is he going to reduce the military to Dhimmy Carter levels? To when the troops have to run drills dropping from a copter, they instead have to jump from the back of a truck, point their guns and say bang? (true story)

    Is he going to appoint more judges who look to international law? Are you going to be happy if said judges turn to Muslim texts for their interpretations?

    Is he going to push his agenda of allowing the recently born to be killed?

    And Gentlemen, please lay off the obscenities. I know our resident trolls get the BP up, but no reason to swear.

    To those who say the election is over. Could be, but the asinine and ignorant idea that women are going to flock over and vote Republican just because Palin is the VP candidate. You can get much more stupid. She represents everything that is offensive about the psuedoconservative movement. ALL her positions are based on far right evangelical teaching. Which is certainly her right and that right should NEVER be taken away. But that simple fact makes her totally opposite of those who were Hillary supporters AND it is ignorant to think that they will voter for her because they have the same genitals. But coming from people who think that blacks will vote for Obama because he has the same skin color it’s not a surprising attitude.

    As far as leftist hate, sadly they are just following the pattern that you folks set decades ago.

    Vince, that fact that you don’t trim your pubes is a point in your favor. TGC, you are the poster child for right wing hate speech. And, to those who continue to tell me what I think and believe and support, well I’ll honor Livewire’s request but there is no response for you that isn’t obscene.

    Because, in the Democrat universe, all women think like Hillary because THEY have the same genitals as she does.

    Not all women are hatemongering sociopaths who think it’s normal to murder the baby you’re carrying because it’s socially inconvenient for you, Dave.

  37. NDT, If you had the tiniest semblance of a brain you would be able to follow from the post where someone claimed that soccer moms and moderates would now flock to Palin (who you sickos worship far more than anyone ever did Obama). My point is that those who were most supportive of Hillary would have been those who also supported her pro-choice position and are not going to change now to one who is completely opposed to it. Gender isn’t the issue, positions are. I wouldn’t expect you to understand reality so you just sit in your little puddle of ignorant piss and be happy.

  38. let the gibberish begin: Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, speaking in Colorado Springs, Colo., said Fannie and Freddie had “gotten too big and too expensive to the taxpayers.”

    No, Dave, your point was that all soccer moms and moderates support Hillary’s extreme pro-abortion positions.

    Here’s a hint; most women who have carried a child, which would include soccer moms, do not, as do Democrat Party members, view it as a “parasite” or “excess tissue” or try to deny its humanity. Only sociopathic women like Hillary, Nancy Pelosi, and Barbara Boxer can look at their own children and in the next breath declare how good and wonderful and necessary the “right” to kill them is.

  40. Golly NDT, you must be right. I guess when my fingers are typing they are saying what I think I mean but you are the only ones blessed with the ability to look into my head and tell me what I actually mean. Amazing. Well if you’re so good, tell me what I’m thinking right now.
