Palin Appeal Is Widening

The left must be apoplectic this morning after Bristol Palin made her way into the finals of Dancing With The Stars. She received the lowest judges scores Monday night but the public vote pushed her into the finals. Liberals all around are incensed that the least talented among the final four made it into the finals. They are equally upset that Sarah is again beating expectations. Her enormous debut of "Sarah Palin's Alaska" on the TLC network drew over 5 million viewers on Sunday night. As George W. Bush would say, the left is "misunderestimating" the Palin appeal across the nation. The left has suddenly changed their tune when speaking of Bristol. They now believe that merit should determine winners and losers. This coming from the side that favors bailouts of failing companies, affirmative action hiring, redistribution of wealth, and amnesty for lawbreaking illegals.

Bristol, because of her mothers vice presidential run with John McCain has been scrutinized from the left and the media more than any other unwed mother. You'd think the left that celebrates promiscuity through condom distribution and abortion on demand would be more sympathetic to the plight of an unwed mother. Maybe their displeasure is in the fact that Bristol, like her mother, decided to take her baby to term. How many left wing zealots have children that get pregnant, but we never know because that child is aborted in secret behind closed doors. Kudos to Bristol for making the decision for life, and putting herself out there for ridicule and scorn for the sake of her baby. Not being an avid fan of DWTS, but occasionally watching, I've seen a shy and modest young woman, not the promiscuous tart the left would like to portray. She seems determined, and has obviously improved her dancing from the initial show. She has also become an advocate for abstinence which of course drives the left wild.

Her advancement on the show could be attributed to many things. The left probably understands that her mother's supporters are keeping her alive. Many probably watch for the chance that Sarah and Todd may be in the studio audience, and therefore the longer she remains on the show the more they will be exposed to Sarah herself. That has to drive the left bananas. Or maybe many just appreciate the fact that she's not a professional in the entertainment field and they celebrate her courage to do what she's doing. The left doesn't really believe in the public determining winners and losers. They feel the elites, or should we say intelligentsia, should determine most everything. They hate capitalism because the public determines who should survive. They love socialism, because bureaucrats and elites control business and therefore the wealth of the country. The great unwashed in their minds has no business choosing the direction of the country. They don't have the requisite gray matter to know what is best for even them.

I believe they fear something more than they can actually bare.  If the least professional and polished Bristol Palin can make it into the finals of Dancing With The Stars, maybe in their minds, the uneducated, inarticulate and down home woman of the people, Sarah Palin can make it into the finals of the 2012 presidential campaign. They're repulsed by the thought of an every day American that connects with the majority of fly over country, could actually become president. They've done everything they can to destroy her, but she continues on successfully advancing, or should I say dancing to the beat of her own drum. A successful book. A Fox News contributor. A political endorser extraordinaire. A highly coveted campaigner, and now a cable television phenomenon. Wherever she goes, crowds convene. They said she was finished after she resigned as governor. But, as we have seen, her influence in the midterms was second to none, and her star continues to rise. I hope the left continues to, in the words of W., misunderestimate Sarah Palin.

GOP Bigwigs Continue Their Assault On Palin

A new Politico article by Mike Allen and Jim Vandehei is another attack on Sarah Palin. They use unnamed sources, supposedly GOP bigwigs and establishment types that they say want to stop her. Sarah describes this as yellow journalism, and if establishment republicans want to stop her they should put their name to it.  If there is an attempt by establishment republicans and possible presidential candidates to try and undermine Sarah's possible run for the 2012 nomination, and I don't doubt there is, they aren't going to reveal themselves. The republican establishment knows that if they overtly turn on Sarah, they will alienate millions of grass root and Tea Party activists. The establishment republicans that supported Sue Lowden over Sharron and Angle in Nevada, Lisa Murkowski over Joe Miller in Alaska, Charlie Crist over Marco Rubio in Florida, and Trey Grayson over Rand Paul in Kentucky, and I could go on, should know by now that the grass roots conservatives will not stand for squishy RHINO republicans any more.

If the GOP wants to win in 2012 they will need Tea Party support, or they will go down in flames. They fear Sarah because she has Tea Party activists on her side, and they don't think she can beat Barack Obama if she wins the nomination. They also didn't think Rand Paul, Sharron Angle, and Marco Rubio could win. They are faced with a conundrum. Do we allow this movement to continue and change and reinvigorate the party, or do we do everything we can to undermine Sarah and other leaders of Tea Parties across the nation to keep their ever shrinking hold on power. Without Sarah and the Tea Party movement, republicans would not be close to the massive gains they're about to experience on November 2nd. Sarah has had the single largest effect on this election, and without her it's anyone's guess what the gains would be. GOP bigwigs point to her support of Christine O'Donnell as hurting the party's chance of taking back the senate. Sarah has said "of course I'm going to support the true conservative over a republican that voted for cap and trade, and was willing to go along with much of Obama's agenda." This is the attitude of the new movement within the republican party. No more compromising republican in name only elected officials. We want constitutional conservative law makers.

We also don't want republicans to compromise with Obama once they get elected. If it takes two election cycles to roll back the damage that Obama and the democrats have done to our country, then so be it. Sarah continues to fight for conservative values, with an ever increasing army of patriots determined to take back our country. It's obvious she's willing to battle the republican establishment as well as liberals to do just that. If I were one of those unnamed GOP bigwigs that is determined to stop her, I'd think twice before picking a fight with Sarah Barracuda. It's growing increasingly clear that Sarah is willing to run in 2012 if needed. The most recent interviews reveal her willingness to run if another strong conservative candidate doesn't emerge.

Michael Steele in a recent interview said these unnamed sources need to shut up. He is one republican that has embraced Sarah, and campaigned with her on his recent Fire Pelosi Bus Tour. Of course many of those republican bigwigs were calling for his head not too long ago. Instead of embracing those that are reinvigorating the GOP, many of these establishment types seem hell bent on blowing up the republican party, and making way for a more powerful and energized third party. Has the time come? I guess what happens after November 2nd will determine if these new Tea Party lawmakers will have a voice within The Grand Old Party. I emphasis old because without them the republican party will go the way of the buggy whip, unwilling to evolve with what is happening in grass roots America.
