Why, suddenly, are the GOP honchos turning on the woman they accepted as their number two standard bearer a short time ago? Are they admitting there is nobody they can can put up against this diminutive national neophyte. Do they blame her for McCains loss? Do they think her Couric and Gibson missteps did the GOP in? It's funny that Joe Biden was a walking foot and mouth disease, but that didn't seem to dim the Messiah's halo. It seems to me that when she was announced as running mate, an anemic and drowning campaign was suddenly energized. They consider her a sure loser for the presidency, but they are uncertain they have a viable candidate to oppose her for the nomination. What does that say about the Republican bench players. This is a profound admission from a party looking advantaged, in the current, and growing anti democrat climate. Or are they just as condescending toward the conservative base as the left, and mainstream media are?
You would think the left would encourage and invite a Palin run in 2012, when they consider her so deficient and beatable. An Obama sacrificial lamb. Easy prey for Barack's Chicago thug machine. Wouldn't wise strategy require them to hold their fire and wait for her to be nominated, and then begin the attack. Yet, they are determined to take her out now. Very perplexing!
I think we all know the answer. The power brokers are all scared to death of her. Book sales mean something, as well as huge internet hits for every Palin article. There is a growing and new populist movement. A fly over country commando troop, ready to storm the Washington power palace with pitch forks in hand. They have gone through basic training in town hall meetings all summer long. They are hidden in nooks and crannies on the East and Left coast, ready to erupt, and Sarah Palin has a connection with them, and their values. They are hardened by condescension and innuendo from the Washington aristocracy. These freedom fighters are tired of a hubris of elitism that considers them incapable of managing their own lives.
Now the remaining question is, will Sarah lead them? Do they even need a leader? Is there a new William Wallace of freedom, somewhere out there ready to accept the mantle? Only time will tell. My advice is, with advanced sales of "Going Rogue," going through the roof, don't bet against the Prince William Sound, Beauty Queen!
