Political Rewind: This is a story I wrote around October of last year. It is still something I think is worth reading, so go on, get to it!
Over the last few years conservatism has been slowly passing away. “Why,” was not the question of conservatives. We were wondering, “How?” How can we regain the trust and support of the American people, and how can we stop people from moving over to the Democratic leftist ideas that would doom America to socialism? No one could come up with an answer to this pressing question.
Then John McCain found the solution: Sarah Palin. The faces of the conservative movement were dead (Reagan) and the present faces (Bush and Cheney) were becoming less and less attractive to many Americans. The Democrats had already repackaged their dirty old tricks, ideas and ideology, which the American people hated. They did that with Barack Obama, a far-left liberal who was presentable to the American people, who could hide his ideology behind charismatic rhetoric. So we were in for a world of hurt, but then, with thundering applause, on Sept. 3, for the second time in history, a pro-life, small government, gun-toting, religion-clinging, Republican star was born.
We, average Americans, we, the conservatives, had hope for America’s future. We have the chance to put someone in the White House who knows what we are about, who knows the pain and worries we are feeling. Palin will not be easily removed from the national stage, because she connects with the average voter unlike any other politician in America today.
This was on full display after the announcement of Gov. Palin as John McCain’s vice presidential running mate. The Democrats in the media started a full scale attack on Palin. They relentlessly attacked her in ways that the American people had never seen before. In the furious fit, they did damage to themselves that neither Palin nor any other Republican could have ever done. They exposed their true media bias to the public. They showed their true colors, and people were outraged. Palin during this time looked more and more like a regular American. The media elite hated it, but the American people loved it. The Palin effect what is it, and how does she connect so well? The answer is simple; it is something America always looks for in a public servant. We want someone that does more than talk. We want someone that will go fight for us. We want someone that will risk political friendships to be on the side of the American people and we want someone that will root out all evil and corruption that is in Washington.
Many people see Sarah Palin as just the person to do that.
If you ask Begala he would give you two thumbs up. I would say he is a liberal idiot bound by his adoration of the Obama administration. It is America so let’s just agree to disagree.
Today on the 26th of July Alaska Governor Sarah Palin gave her farewell address, though I don’t think she will be gone for long. There were many great moments throughout the speech, but two in particular jumped out at me, first she took aim at the media saying, “Some straight talk for some — just some — in the media, because another right protected for all of us is freedom of the press. And you have such important jobs, reporting facts, and informing the electorate, and exerting power to influence. You represent what could and should be a respected honest profession, that could and should be a cornerstone of our democracy. Democracy depends on you. And that is why, that’s why our troops are willing to die for you. So, how about, in honor of the American soldier, you quit making things up. She took aim at the media once again saying, “Our new governor has a very nice family, too. So leave his kids alone!” We will see how they react in the coming days.

Though Palin still trails Romney as the presidential pick, she far surpasses him and every-other GOP figure, in the popularity contest.
As the Gallup poll states, “Currently, 72% of Republicans and Republican-leaning independents have a favorable opinion of Palin, compared with 56% for Romney and 59% for Huckabee.” A lot could change over time, but it looks as if (for the moment) sarah-barracuda is gaining momentum.
Sarah Palin is getting out there with her latest oped in the Washington Post. Sarah talks about how the cap and tax is an economic disaster. The media has already freaked saying “she knows nothing about cap and trade” Well, here is what Sarah has said,
Unfortunately, many in the national media would rather focus on the personality-driven political gossip of the day than on the gravity of these challenges. So, at risk of disappointing the chattering class, let me make clear what is foremost on my mind and where my focus will be:
I am deeply concerned about President Obama’s cap-and-trade energy plan, and I believe it is an enormous threat to our economy. It would undermine our recovery over the short term and would inflict permanent damage.
