“I’ve never seen anything like it,”  says McCain in the video below.  And McCain has been around.  He knows the ways of politics and campaigns.   Most of us have never seen anything like it, and it is a cause for wonderment.  Why is Sarah Palin so hated?

It began right away, when she first burst onto the scene one Friday.   By Saturday, about 80 reporters had flown to Alaska, driven to Wasilla, found the home of the Heaths (Sarah’s parents) and knocked on the door.  Sarah had hit a home run with her first speech and their mission was to destroy her.  They were looking for something, anything, to take her down.   What must it be like to have that as your mission, to search out and destroy someone who had done you no harm?

How had she hurt them?  She had appeared as a fresh face on the scene, a breath of  air from the boonies of Alaska,  a strong woman with a natural charm, an achiever, a loving mother, a faithful wife, and a Christian.   How bad is that?  She was not a member of the beltway elite, she did not abort her Downs baby, she could catch a fish and dress a moose.  How bad is that?  Apparently  Sarah threatened everything the left stood for — which  makes you wonder what the left really stands for.

She came as a lamb to the slaughter and we were all amazed as we watched them go to work on her.   She was one of us and I think that is why we rallied around her.   They did shameful photoshopping of her family and son, Trig (see my previous post.)   Words like ‘vitriol’ and ‘vicious’ were  used to describe the media treatment.   When a little girl is quoted as saying, “I think she’s mean,” we know she has been brainwashed for, of course, she has never met Sarah.

Sarah’s book, Going Rogue, has been parodied and trashed, but as I write it is  #1 on the New York Times hard-cover non-fiction list.    The comment of some on reading it  and really getting to know Sarah for the first time is,  “What’s not to like?”

Hello, out there.  Help me to understand.   You who hate Sarah.  Please tell me why.

It remains a mystery why Palin so enrages the left.  From one side of their mouth they attempt to marginalize her as an inconsequential moron, some Alaskan redneck former beauty pageant breeder of too many children.  At the same time, they declare her dangerous, cunning, a too-powerful figure corrupting the minds of mainstream America.  The many contradictions contained within the liberals’ hatred (yes, I am using that word – because it is appropriate) of Sarah Palin willfully goes unnoticed by them.  They simply march on, gleeful in their collective and repeated attacks against the former governor of Alaska.  Sarah Palin is a woman.  Sarah Palin is a conservative. Sarah Palin is Pro-Life.  Sarah Palin is pro-gun rights.  Sarah Palin talks of her love of God and country. Sarah Palin has the audacity to openly (and effectively) mock liberalismWe must destroy her.  — The Ulsterman Report
