Sarah Palin, a lightning rod for Liberal Hatred

Friends, I thought I had dealt with the Sarah Palin issues previously, and so I assumed I wouldn't need to be blogging about it again. I guess that would be classified as Wishful Thinking. The Nutroots have accused her of nearly everything under the sun in the last week. So far, about the only thing she hasn't been accused of is being a Liberal Vegan who hates Bush. The link above shows at current count, 43 rumors that are either absolutely untrue, or are taken out of context and or mis stated.

Now, guys, let's be real for a moment. Executive Experience means you're the person in charge. The Buck Stops here made famous by Harry Truman? Perhaps you've heard of it? It means that there isn't anyone you can go to with the problem, you have to make the decision, and face the consequences of that decision, good or bad.

Let's take a look at bad decision making. Governor Blanco didn't call out the National Guard, and put them in charge of New Orleans, not because there weren't any around, but because she was afraid it would increase the state's liability. That is Management. Where you decide things in committee and get consensus. It takes time, and as shown during Katrina, is a bad way to do business. The mess finally started to get sorted out, and we later learned it was never as bad as we were led to believe, when the National Guard, and General Honre' arrived and took charge. The Patton and John Wayne comparisons were thick in the press, and I saw a Leader, a Commander, take charge of the situation.

Management means you reach consensus, and everyone agrees, or at least a majority agree. The Senate would be a good example of management. They debate, deliberate, and no one person makes the decision, which is why it's called the Legislative Branch in the Constitution.

By comparison, the Constitution lists the President under the Executive Branch, because he or she is the one who makes the decision. He or she is the one who is most responsible for this decision. Executive is where you don't have other to blame inaction on, you have only yourself.

Senator Obama hasn't held Executive Experience, and running a campaign is not similar to being President. Now, I've just said that being a Senator isn't experience for being a President, and I've told the truth. That goes for John McCain too.

Liberals, here's a secret. You don't understand how a Conservative's mind works, so stop trying to pretend you're just asking the questions we would be asking. We would be asking why Obama is friends with William Ayers. We would be asking about his relationship with Rezco. We have been asking, but you didn't seem to care about what we would ask then. Now that a Woman who is Conservative is running for Vice President, now all of a sudden, you're claiming to ask question we would be asking.

No, you're carrying the water of the Nutroots. You're pretending that Sarah Palin is the wrong woman to represent American Woman. Another woman would be preferred you claim, you quickly name Senator Hutchinson, or Senator Snowe.

Would this be the same Senator Snowe who votes with the Democrats, especially on many issues favored by John McCain? The same Senator Snowe who voted to provide amnesty to the Illegal's? The one who spoke against the war in Iraq? Oh sure, that woman is qualified, she loves Liberal policies, and thus is extremely qualified.

As for Kay Baily Hutchinson. She rates an 84 from the ACU which I'm sure the Liberals know is what John McCain got in the first years after the election in 2000. It's interesting that Liberal Women are always qualified, which is the same we hear about Liberal Men.

I have a question Libs, why is it you assume we only look at the surface of things? Do you think that everyone is as shallow as you are? Do you really think that everyone is as self centered as you apparently are?

Hillary Clinton had never held elected office before running for the Senate, and was considered qualified by the press. Why is it that Sarah Palin who has held elected offices for many years, is unqualfied? The answer is obvious. Hillary believed in things that the reporters who have empowered themselves to decide these things also believed in.

Having donated to both Hillary Clinton's campaign, and to Barack Obama's campaign, and not donated to the Republicans, or to McCain, because of my extreme distaste for him, I'll repeat something I said on Hot Air at the time. McCain won the election by picking Palin. Not because she's a woman, I don't care about that. Not because she's a hunter, but because she's an outsider. She's an outsider who can really understand the problems, the trials and trevails of the average citizens life, because she's one of us. I assumed that McCain would pick Lieberman, or someone else who is an old and trusted friend. Instead he went for a new friend, and I believe that McCain has a certain esteem and respect for Sarah Palin, who is the Governor of Alaska. That brings up another question Libs, what is this sudden willingness to demean the woman by forgetting her current job? Why do you insist on calling her the Mayor when she's the Governor? She has been Governor as long as Obama has been Senator right?

Libs, you don't understand Conservatives, because you don't want to. We really do see the person instead of the subgroup. We don't see her as a boon because we think she'll pick up the mothers who hunt moose demographic. That is a small demographic, which doesn't really have a lot of power. We like her because she's genuine, and unlike the scripted presentations from the Democrats, she's believable.

Will I vote for McCain? I doubt it, I still don't like him. Perhaps I could vote for Palin, but I'd have to have something to block his name so I didn't see it.

An Open Letter to Bristol Palin

Ms. Bristol Palin,

You don't know me, and I don't know you. I've never met your parents, nor anyone in your family. I've never been to Alaska, and I will probably never see it's beauty except in photographs and on television. I'm just a conservative guy who has only heard of you, and your pregnancy this last weekend and today. I don't think of you as any of the four or five letter words which have been bandied about. I think you're a girl, who has become a Woman, perhaps sooner than we would like, or prefer, but that isn't our choice, it's the Creator's.

Instead, I'd like to tell you that in a way, I admire your courage, and your judgment. Yes, your judgment. I understand you intend to marry the father, whom you love. That indicates that your judgment was sufficient in choosing someone with whom you are more than infatuated with, instead you followed your heart, which is a common activity for the young, and far too rare for those of us who are older. I won't question your wisdom, nor your choices to date, but instead, I would like to offer you best wishes, and hopes for a painless process of bringing this life into the world. You young woman, are the closest thing to God on earth. Only women, can create life, while we men are unable to do more than provide a vital component.

However, I would like to offer this observation. There is more to being a Mother than carrying the child within you. I'm certain you know that, because you have parents who seem to care for you deeply. I'm sure you know how much work is ahead of you, as you're the oldest daughter, and have certainly helped with your younger siblings. I've seen photos of you holding Trig, and I hope your child learns the lessons you obviously have. The lessons of faith, love, and responsibility. I am assuming much of this, admittedly I have no idea of the details, and yet, I suspect it's true, from what I've seen and heard, I'd be surprised if your family is all that different from the rest of us out here in the nation.

Others may seek to insult, demean, and belittle you. I would offer a quote from another intelligent and very special woman. "No one can make you feel inferior without your consent." Eleanor Roosevelt.

When those who don't know you, and don't know the path your feet follow offer insults and demeaning comments, ignore them. They are less than worthless in their opinions. Listen to those who love and care about you Bristol, for their advice, and assistance, is what makes family important. Robert Frost said "Home is the place where, when you have to go there, they have to take you in." I believe in your parents, you have a home.

My ego won't let me believe that you'll never read this young Ms. Bristol Palin, however if anyone else does, and decides to cherish life, then my effort is rewarded.

God be between you and harm in all the empty places where you must walk. An ancient Egyptian blessing according to the TV show Babylon 5. Even if it isn't an old blessing from Egypt, it does convey the prayer I have for you.
