The Case For Sarah

I’ve been thinking about this for some time and a few conversations with a friend pushed me to a painful conclusion.

Sarah Palin cannot win the presidency in 2012.

Let me categorically state with NO reservations whatsoever, that she would make a fine, competent and honest president. I would love to see her win and think it would be good for the country if she could, but not today.

Face it, the left and it’s media allies have done the job of destroying her well. I really don’t want to be pessimistic about this, but it is nonetheless the truth. This ruthless, vile tactic hasn’t shaken our view of her, if nothing else it’s made us see her favorably by her bold, forceful responses to the attacks. No wimp that one. The problem lies in the fiddy-twoers. I don’t generally take a lot of stock in polling, but it’s across the board that her “unfavorable” ratings have increased with no signs of improvement. That obviously consists of the leftist drones (that would vote for anybody with the right pedigree) and the group consisting of the remaining 52’rs that still haven’t awaken to the fact that “politics” are an inescapable part of their lives now. The Short Attention Span™ bunch of so-called independents are the ones to look at here. The idiots that literally make-up their minds in the voting booth, easily swayed by sound-bites and ‘political tactics for dummies’. This is the very heart of the problem, and we still haven’t learned to educate and motivate this significant group, an Augean task at the least, but a problem must make every effort to fix. This group by their very nature, make the leftist tactics effective. A simple message ( and forget it’s veracity) condensed into a quick little phrase and badda-bing they remember it well enough to effect their viewpoint long enough to be dangerous. The classic “October Surprise” is totally dependent on this demonstrable fact. The Tuscon massacre after effect proves this beyond doubt. The left attacks Sarah with baseless allegations, she responded and they attacked her for responding. That group is spun into thinking that Palin was ‘small’ throughout. This was effective because the attacks came from multiple sources, and their focus largely centered around Sarah. Beck, O’Reilly and Limbaugh came under attack as well, but their real focus was on Palin. The gambit “diluted” their appearance of being guilty of libelous, vile behavior and instead, carried Sarah into it with negative consequences for her. We desperately need to break this chain of ignorance. The Tea Party movement seems to be working well, educating and waking up some to the dangers of out of control government, but it’s not enough or fast enough to help us in 2012. There isn’t a way that I can think of to accelerate educating our brethren, hell we can’t even get them away from coming out of their brain-washed mental prisons to even see what’s going on, let alone taking time to learn more. It’s the endless dilemma of the Conservative Movement, that our ideology cannot be explained in single-syllable words.

Regardless of what we may be able to accomplish in the next year, it’s too late for Sarah this go-round. We can’t make her a winner on the big-ticket, BUT she can and will be the Kingmaker. Sarah Palin could best serve her Tea Party Conservative friends, by preventing what seems to be almost inevitable, the republican establishment foisting Romney (or another equally bad candidate) on us. In fact, this role may be the best for her at this point in time. We can and must have someone that isn’t afraid to forcefully (uh..oh…can I use that word?) defend our visions to save this country and keep the DC repubeicans from giving us a McCain lite candidate. It sickens me to see the polls and straw-votes with Romney in the lead. Of course, they are push-polls and no doubt, conducted in selected target (shit, can’t say that either) areas to spin the results their way, don’t ever accuse the RNC of honesty ya’ know?

We the people… do.not.want.a.rotten. worthless. dickweed. RINO. like. Romney. as. our. candidate. in. 2012. the. end.

RNC to us: “Here’s a shit sandwich, we know that’s what you want, so be good little peons and eat it, then tell all your friends how tasty it was.

Us to them: FUCK YOU and your dog.

It’s tough to see and accept the hand-writing on the wall. We spend precious time and effort to push Sarah onto the ticket, yet we’ll have no backing by the ignoramus Fiddy-Twoers still sleeping, the media and worst of all the establishment, and that would set up conditions for Romney, et al to percolate onto the ticket. We must keep in mind that the beltway rethugs crowd is as hateful towards Palin as the left, and will be just a ruthless as well. They want the daddy warbucks funding from their compatriots that might not come if an outsider from Alaska upsets the deal.

I propose we let Sarah run the interference for us with the media and the republican establishment types, be a King-Maker, so we can get someone who can beat Odumbo in the general. Someone with a bit of name recognition (just to eliminate the “Who is that?” factor), yet with no baggage (manufactured by the left) or otherwise, that has a chance to win over the independent morons, would do nicely.

I am NOT advocating yet another “hold your nose and pull” presidential election cycle, nor am I moving away from a sincere desire to hold strongly to personal principles by accepting the unacceptable (but electable) candidate.

Thoughts anyone?

Carry On…
