It truly amazes me the hate out there for Sarah Palin. The mainstream media (MSM) has done nothing but do all they can to bury her and now some idiots from the McCain campaign are smearing her. I’m fine with the election but am truly pissed off at what people are doing to a great person. She is truly a self-made person who’s risen from hockey mom to mayor to governor to being a candidate for Vice-President of the United States. She may have not been the most prepared to be Vice-President but if the press had reported on all of Biden’s screw ups on the campaign trail people would have thought different of her. All I ask is that the press report fairly. When Palin screwed up it deserved to be reported on but Joe Biden was hardly followed at all.
I believe that Governor Palin would have been hailed as a hero had she been a Democrat, and especially if she wasn’t pro-life. Her and her husband Todd are people that people are uncomfortable with as 90% of pregnancies that have Down Syndrome children are terminated. Just the presence of that precious little boy, Trig, is a guilt trip on many because most would not have the courage to bring a child like that into this world.
Now these cowards are ananymously attacking Palin and blaming her for John McCain’s loss. I guarantee this, if Sarah Palin wouldn’t have been on the ticket then McCain wouldn’t have even pulled in 40%. Governor Palin energized the party but this was not an election any Republican could have won.
I think that the press and associates of other candidates are trying to bury her. They don’t want her to be a serious candidate in 2012 as they know that she’s a serious threat. I do believe she needs experience and even mentioned it in a post right before her selection.
Somehow, conservatives need to find an effective way to get out their message without the press as they have truly gone off the deep end. They also need to quit shooting some of the true heroes of the party like Sarah Palin.
