It’s amusing to watch Democrats and associated leftists get worked up into a lather at there mere mention of Sarah Palin’s name. We’ve got critics bringing her up in the comment sections of posts which don’t even mention that charismatic and accomplished woman.
And Democratic National Committee (DNC) operatives have gone into overdrive to lambaste the woman who did more to reform her state in her first two years as Governor than Obama did to reform his in twelve years serving in its state senate or as the state’s U.S. Senator. Guess attacking Sarah Palin is a lot easier than defending Obama’s policies.
DNC Press Secretary Hari Sevugan practically foams at the mouth when discussing the former Republican governor with a record of bipartisan achievement:
This book tour has only reinforced the tabloid aspects of her profile, wasted a platform to add substance, driven deeper the schisms in the Republican party and sucked the oxygen out of the room for anyone else to emerge.
Um, Hari, if your allies in the MSM weren’t so hellbent on reinforcing those tabloid aspects, then we might better see the substance she can add to that platform. But, when’s the last time you — or any of you allies in the DNC or in the MSM — actually addressed what she accomplished in Alaska (in a more than perfunctory manner)?
You guys are painting a picture black, then faulting it for lacking color.
Don’t you have better things to do you with your time than attack a former Republican Governor while reducing her record to tabloid gossip? Given the obsession you show with this woman’s private life, you do help show that yours is not the party of ideas, but instead the one which practices the politics of personal destruction.
And a source of endless amusement to conservatives. Kind of like watching a spoiled child throw a temper tantrum. You guys do look ridiculous.
UPDATE: Considering Hari’s memo, Ann Althouse observes, “The question is whether it makes them look worse and whether local reporters lap up what they’ve been spoonfed.”
