Palin Derangement Syndrome

Hatin’ Palin – Why Palin Provokes the Left’s Fury

When Sarah Palin first stepped onto the national stage (in the hottest red high heels anyone ever saw) this country was changed forever. It will be remembered in history as the moment conservative women stepped onto the grid in a meaningful way. In the same instant, the Left froze in terror and a seething hatred began to build until it could no longer be contained and was unleashed in the most brutal assault on a woman in politics this nation has ever seen. The most vile and disgusting remarks were made about her family, her baby’s paternity, her marriage and her motherhood. Late night comics made rape jokes about her minor daughter and degraded her by calling her a “stewardess” and “sexy secretary.”

Leftist website the Daily Kos started the rumors about Trig not being Sarah’s child, but if you look for the story today you will find this message on the Kos, “I’m sorry, I can’t seem to find that story.” Typical. It went down the memory hole. But here’s one that didn’t go down the memory hole thanks to screen grabs and smart bloggers: Alan Colmes, creepy Ichabod Crane look-a-like, had the audacity to suggest Palin didn’t seek proper pre-natal care during her pregnancy. This is rich coming from a guy for whom “pre-natal care” includes visits to Planned Parenthood butchers. Colmes tried to delete the story when he realized what a jerk he was for posting it. That’s what leftists call “courage.”

MSNBC used faked, highly sexualized photos of Sarah in a news broadcast which they later had to grovel over. But it didn’t stop them from flippantly arguing they were just having some “fun.” I’m curious as to what Newsweek‘s excuse was for allowing a Sarah Palin doll dressed up in a sexy school-girl outfit, shirt unbuttoned to show off a red bra to be featured in one of their stories about Palin. The hatred was (and still is) palpable. But why? The following are the top ten reasons leftist moonbats hate Sarah Palin.

And we’re starting with… Don’t hate her because she’s beautiful!

    Actually, the Daily Kos did not *start* the rumors about Trig. The rumors were started up in Alaska in the Spring of '08 by Alaskans, long before the lower 48 even knew the name of Sarah Palin. Internet searches show these rumor posts going all the way back to April 2008 on Alaskan websites and blogs. Trig rumors were discussed on the daily kos for a couple of days right after she was nominated but as a rule, conspiracy theories are not allowed and are a bannable offense. That is why the story was scratched from the site.

    • January 2, 2011

      Andrew Sullivan was posted on the Daily Kos and was the main driver for this rumor in the main media. So, for all intents and purposes they did start that rumor because that's where the mainstream press picked it up.

    • January 2, 2011

      I can't believe your making excuses for the Kos-hole

    • January 3, 2011

      Bull crap… Dibice… back to your cage at the liberal sewage pit.

    • January 3, 2011

      There's an interesting post on Gryphen's "immoral minority" website where he is congratulating his Governor for bringing a new kid into the world. This is just after Trig's birth, before he and the rest of the Insane Clown Posse got their marching orders from D.C..

      These people are unprincipled swine. As to Kos; the reason why the Trig Truth story was banished from his site was because it was so embarrassing.

  2. January 2, 2011

    and it looks like the Kos didn't take all their babygate stuff down. So much for that "no conspiracies" theory http://www.dailykos.com/story/2008/8/31/232411/00

    • January 3, 2011

      The Left had few problems with Palin when she was a little known Governor in Alaska. In fact, the local left wing propaganda broadsheet, the Anchorage Daily Worker, praised her leadership when it consisted of going after corrupt Republicans. When she went after Democrats, they were less pleased.

  3. January 2, 2011

    This is my favorite quote from the Daily Kos article I just linked. This is the way the Left works. If you ever had any question….here it is from their own mouths.

    "If this breaks into the MSM, it’s all but over folks. Sarah Palin will never be the same, whether it’s true or not."

  4. January 2, 2011

    This is the most comprehensive analysis I have read about the obsessive hate directed at Sarah Palin. After reading this I respect and like her more. Makes me feel sorry for the so called feminists who ridicule and hate her. I know well a few of these "critics" and it's personal for all the reasons Megan Fox states.

    • February 5, 2011

      I am neither liberal nor right winged. I chose not to choose a side. I like and dislike each side equally. With that out of the way, my opinion of why feminists "ridicule and hate her", is because the whole point to feminists is to have number one say over what they can and can't do with their bodys. I believe that women should be aloud to take birth control and abort fetuses if they want to. But I think they should use birth control correctly first. I recently found out that women can abort after three months pregnant. This actually really disgusts me. I herd they cut the spinal cord before it is birthed all the way. I think that should be illegal.
      also one last thing that I was just now thinking of. A friend of mine was raped five years ago, she now has many mental problems for which she takes many drugs for. If she didn't take birth control and got pregnant she would either, have to go of all her meds and possibly attempt kill her self to have the baby, or she could just simply abort the fetus. I'm pretty sure Sarah Palin would choose the babys life over her life….I think in this situation there is no way to be pro life. even when my friend is on her medication she has attempted to commit suicide.

  5. January 2, 2011

    I like Sarah Palin. I want to read this article. But I can't, because my eyes won't move past "a taught size 4." That should be "TAUT." Look it up. "Taught," on the other hand, is the past tense of "teach." As in "I TAUGHT this conservative writer the difference between 'taught' and 'taut' so she would quit embarrassing the rest of us with bad grammar."

    Deadlines are no excuse. Leftists are the ones who want to destroy the English language along with everyone else. Don't be like them.

    • January 2, 2011

      No excuses here. Thanks for the catch. You'd think I would know better…my mother is an English teacher. I'm sure she cringed. Fixed it. Thank you (Although I don't think one typo negates an entire article, or makes it unworthy of reading. Happens to the beast of us…I mean best of us.) lol

      • January 2, 2011

        Thank YOU. Most people get angry when I correct their spelling, but conservatives are the ones who are always having to endure being called "stupid" by liberals, who are eagle-eyed about petty things like spelling and grammar. Also, don't trust any spell-check program. They'll miss a grammar mistake 9 times out of 10 if the words are spelled right.

        • January 2, 2011

          Are you kidding? I'm mortified. LOL And I don't trust spell-check at all. I use other eyes. Unfortunately, that one got through all the eyes involved. I shall berate them later. :)

    • January 3, 2011

      Frankly Andrea, I find your correction interesting but obnoxious. What kind of a person would say what you did in a public forum? It's easy enough to reach Megan on her email address, where you could have told her of the mistake without rruu! (BonQuiQui style) comments. What kind of person won't read a piece because of one wrong word (out of quite a few)?! You must have to forgo much that's out there these days, since I notice that even the newspapers, magazines and novels use possessives for plurals and can't spell either!

      • January 4, 2011

        Frankly, inventormiss, I find your butting in obnoxious and not at all interesting. If you see above, Ms. Fox and I have already discussed the matter. And yes, I do forgo "much that's out there these days" — I don't read the newspapers or magazines, and I have plenty of novels and other books that were published before careful editing became optional.

        Also, having no idea what "rruu! (BonQuiQui style)" meant, I looked it up, and according to Urbandictionary.com "bon qui qui" means I'm a "white chick who acts ghetto." So wanting people to use English correctly is ghetto now. Okay.

        • January 4, 2011

          http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jZkdcYlOn5M (that's Bon Qui Qui. We find it funny that she pronounces "rude" the way she does.) I'm not butting in, just commenting on your post, which I found obnoxious. I care about the language as well, but I think there are better ways to correct it. Ms. Fox obviously was happy to hear from you…that's fine. I thought it was obnoxious.

    • January 4, 2011

      "I want to read this article. But I can't, because my eyes won't move past "a taught size 4." That should be "TAUT." Look it up."

      lol…anal much?

    • January 4, 2011

      I tend to agree with you. Having won a state spelling bee as a child back in the 70's, spelling is one of my biggest peeves and if I find grammar or spelling errors in an article, I don't read it as it normally speaks volumes about the person writing said article. However, I did read this one as I like Sarah as I think she has more "balls" than most men in our political landscape. We have an entire generation of men that aren't really men but metrosexuals.

    • January 25, 2011

      As some others have mentioned, I'm a stickler for spelling and grammar as well. However, I'll be the first to admit not being a master of either.

      The article was fine and I enjoyed it. I thought it was a bit long. I share many of the views mentioned by the author. There is not a lot about Sarah Palin not to like, unless you disagree with her political views. I would have thought more women would have gravitated to her because she demonstrates how females can be women (dare I say ladies) as well as capable and sucessful humans.

      Oh well, I've always said that if I figure out women I'm going to write a book and make a fortune.

      Thanks for the read.

    • April 15, 2011

      Hang on there, just a minute. I am a leftist and I do not destroy the English language. The only people who seem to be destroying the English language are politicians like George Bush. Mangled language is not attractive.

  6. January 2, 2011

    Kos may have flushed the entry about the Palin pregnancy down the memory hole, but you can see it here, captured from the Google cache: http://ingrimayne.com/spp/sarahPalinPregnant.html

  7. January 2, 2011

    This was excellent – I actually read the whole thing {high praise}

    I reacted with laughter when Sarah was picked as McCain's VP running mate because I figured it would incense the left.

    I knew Obama would win early on by the kid glove treatment he was getting, but I hoped I was wrong. If the Hillary voters *truly* believed the tenets they profess, they would have voted for Sarah. I think the left knew this so the talking point became "It's a cynical ploy to get the disgruntled Hilary vote".

    I thought there they go again, projecting – they must really think *everyone* plays identity politics!

    Considering I was never religious, and never voted until last November, Sarah went from being interesting as a thorn in the side of the left to being a real force for the right and I no longer view her as a "personality" but as a serious person I can identify with and she {ie the Tea Party} is WHY I voted.

    I'm starting to see the right was correct that lax/permissive social policy does affect economic policy and I know I'm not alone!!!

    • January 2, 2011

      Welcome to the fray. Glad to have you! What you said about permissive social policy affecting economic policy is DEAD ON. This is a thought that deserves its own article.

      • January 3, 2011

        Thank you, I'm happy to have found you Megan. I got here by way of Hot Air, which linked another blog {forgot already ;-<} where I saw your link and a summation that intrigued me.

        I read a lot, and wasn't blowing smoke – I usually just skim stuff to get the gist – but your article clearly defined what I've observed but was unable to put together.

        I commented elsewhere last year that the more the left derides and attempts to dismiss her as "serious" the more it makes me ask where is the dang fire?!?

        Her show is liked by my guys {who are not interested in politics in the least} and my husband has begun to question the negativity about her too because he hunts, fishes, is responsible and sensible and sees those attributes in her.

        As to permissive social policy affecting economic policy, I'm almost 50, so I've observed and even benefited – I joined the USN in 1980 and everything but submarines were a possibility – So I am aware there WAS a need for some of it, but like Affirmative Action, business/society/etc. caught up so it's become nothing more than a way to create an unlevel playing field!

        Ironic, when you consider leftist ideology is all about creating a level playing field!

        I could go on – just ask my husband!

          Interesting analysis by Megan Fox:

          Top 10 Reasons to Hate Sarah Palin

          I like her conclusion:

          Whatever the reasons, it’s a certainty that no other woman has ever been hated as much as Sarah Palin in modern history. Her remarkable ability to rise above it and even laugh at it is a lesson we could all use and more than enough proof to me that she has what it takes to stare down opposition and any challenge you can throw at her. I’ve always been a fan, but the more I get to know her, the more certain I am that Sarah is the next best thing since Ronald Reagan. Her uncanny ability to make leftists writhe with anger and hatred (and dare I say fear) warms my insides. I could definitely stand to see her do that to them for eight years from the inside of the White House. Here’s to hoping the Oval Office gets a new rug soon (a bear rug.)

    • March 25, 2011

      Being a STUPID WOMAN is THE REASON that NO "Hillary voters" would EVER vote for PALIN! You could be SURE that NO WOMAN WOULD EVER BE ALLOWED TO RUN FOR PRESIDENT AGAIN for at LEAST 100 years IF NOT MORE if she ever did get elected as President of the United States.
      The FACT is Hillary Clinton does NOT support Sarah Palin OR her beliefs AT ALL! Here are ONLY a FEW EXAMPLES:
      Palin does NOT support a womans right to choose and HILLARY DOES.
      Palin believes that climate change, global warming is unrelated to human activities. Clinton believes along with the SCIENTIFIC COMMUNITY that we DO INFACT have a bigger part to do global warming then we use to believe and also believes that we can have an opposite effect and has proposed aggresive plans for providing more clean energy.
      Sarah Palin is one of the Phoniest and BIGGEST embarassments to ALL WOMEN IN and OUT of POLITICS.

  8. January 3, 2011

    Not bad – for a girl! :-) Seriously, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Sarah Palin.

  9. January 3, 2011

    Smart and totally funny!! I think what draws me to Sarah other than her beliefs is her ability to smile and laugh through it all. Its a brilliant move, cause nothing makes her opponents more disoriented. Dem and Reps are both confused and derailed by her optimism, love it! Great job Megan;)

  10. January 3, 2011

    There's only one thing here that I disagree with.

    Palin is NOT the next best thing since Ronald Reagan.

    She will be an even better POTUS!

    • April 15, 2011

      She will be even worse. Reagan ran up deficits. Every Republican President since Ford has run up deficits I for one do not like that. Instead of trying to cut corners, so called courageous politicians like Ron Paul should raise taxes to close the gap. Quite frankly leave religion out of politics and regulate companies more. Do you want your drinking water to be unsafe?

  11. January 3, 2011

    Very excellent read Megan. I may have to read it again, to every liberal I know. Thank you so much for this!

  12. January 3, 2011

    If I must be labeled then just go ahead and label me A Liberal, A Democrat; anyway, I did vote for Barack Obama and do continue to support him.

    Now, that it has been established "where I'm coming from" let me say that I am not jealous of Sarah Palin's looks nor am I jealous of her "fertility". Our family ate venison every winter when my father hunted and fish when he fished. I don't watch reality TV.

    I have a soul. I am pro-life. I have a conscience. I do not despise Jesus Christ; on the contrary I claim Him as my soul's Redeemer. Although I am myself offended by cheap shots at Sarah Palin and her family, I do believe that most of the criticism of her is justified and I have my own thoughts on the matter.

    What truly saddens me and what has prompted this comment is the outrageous generalizations – and hateful ones at that – of what I must be if I – or anyone else – is A Liberal. The author has a right to her opinion, but – to me – it is a sad and twisted opinion.

    • January 3, 2011

      I should wait on Megan's response to this but if I might: If you can't recognize the generalizations (hateful ones at that) directed at conservatives, then there is no point in a reasonable debate. I've spent a good many years on both sides of the political spectrum, and as an ex-liberal, I'm stunned at the vitriol that comes out of the left.
      Palin is HATED with a passion by the liberal establishment. If you are offended by the cheap shots directed at her, it speaks to your honor, and I would say Megan's post does not apply to you.
      When it comes to outrageous generalizations, there is enough blame to pass around. ( I'm not trying to justify wrong by pointing out something more egregiously wrong. I think the post is on target.) But to me, it's a lopsided imbalance. Hatred is in the provenance of the left.

      • January 3, 2011

        Welcome to the RIGHT side, tkellybal. So happy to have you.

      • January 4, 2011

        "….and as an ex-liberal, I'm stunned at the vitriol that comes out of the left. " Interesting. Although I had always considered myself conservative, I voted for Barack Obama because – to me – he represented hope for America. He reminded me of John F.Kennedy. A fresh, well-spoken, inspirational voice.It was during the first two years of President Obama's term of office, however, that I truly abandoned the right for the left. The reason? The vitriol that came from the right. I'm 64 years old and I have grown weary from it. I once heard a woman say that Barack Obama was not one of us, meaning a real American. I saw the signs that mocked him as a man of color, mocked his given name, questioned his patriotism, his faith. Read Megan's article again. How would you feel if someone said to you that you had no soul? Read how she describes the liberal woman. How she declares that liberals hate hunting and are limp wristed. Is it okay for her to say such things with the same voice that declares her indignation at how Sarah Palin has been treated? When does it stop, tkellybal? When does it stop?

        • January 4, 2011

          And I'm sorry, but have you seen John Kerry? He IS limp-wristed. So is Dukakis, Reid, Carter, and Obama. They have spaghetti wrists. It's an observation. It's true.

      • April 15, 2011

        Cheap shots? Saying the only freedom she really stands for is deer hunting with an Uzi is a cheap shot? By the way any vitriol directed at conservatives is justified. They are right wing radicals. I speak as a Federal employee. They have abused us consistently and make us far less safe by not enforcing things such as the Clean Air Act and the Clean Water Act. Unjustifiable hatred is the property of the right. Liberalism had done immeasurable good for this country. I was 37 when Reagan came to office, and despite all the advantages the New Deal andthe Great Society brought America, some people hated it with a passion. Why? Is it so wrong that the Government prevented outrageous abuses and tried to give everyone a decent life? I am angry at conservatives because their policies have weakened our country. If you are a patriot you may argue with me. So convince me otherwise.

    • January 3, 2011

      you're pro-life but you support a man who believes in and promotes the killing of infants in the womb? (Has stated that he doesn't want his daughters to be "punished" by a baby, has overturned Mexico City policy, has made taxpayer dollars available to abortionists thru the healthcare bill.) You're a Christian yet you support politicians who vote time and again against the morality you supposedly hold? You're not paying attention!

      • January 4, 2011

        "You're a Christian yet you support politicians who vote time and again against the morality you supposedly hold?" Not accurate. I don't see them voting time and again against morality? Furthermore, President Obama does not promote the killing of infants in the womb. What a vile accusation! Where do you get your information?

        • January 4, 2011

          like I said, you're not paying attention. Look it up. He's pro-abortion to the max!

        • January 4, 2011

          I'm from Illinois. Barack Obama was my Senator. He voted against the Born Alive Infants Protection Act. This bill passed with only two dissenting votes (one from Obama) This bill makes it illegal for doctors to put babies who survive abortions (breathing on their own) in a closet to die. Yes, they were doing that here at Christ hospital. Can you imagine? At a hospital called "Christ." Obama voted no because he said it would lead to pro-lifers overturning Roe v. Wade. So to protect that decision he voted TO KILL BABIES WHO SURVIVED ABORTIONS. You're right. It's a vile accusation. Too bad it's true.

          • April 15, 2011

            Usually aborted babies are premature, it is very difficult to keep them alive. If you want to keep babies alive who survive abortions. Get Universal Health care. If not, well then you cannot really complain as HMOs kill babies who are wanted by their parents. See "Sicko" by Michael Moore. Before you say "oh well, everything Michael Moore says is a lie" that is not true, sometimes he is guilty of exaggeration, but in Sicko, he mostly lets the footage speak for itself. Watch, then come and talk to me, assuming you have not seen it already.

        • January 14, 2011

          Obama actually has the distinction of having been the most pro-abortion member of the senate EVER. He even approved things that Feinstein and Pelosi were against – like partial birth abortion and, as Megan stated, he voted AGAINST legislation that would require hospitals to care for babies that survived abortions. Look up his voting record on the Library of Congress' website for the facts of what he voted for and against as a US senator.

          Also, as US senator, he had the most "present" votes of any senator or representative in HISTORY. Come on! That's just pure laziness. To date, he has written or co-authored 10 times as many books as any president in history has. Let's use the most recent as a comparison. Bush is listed as an author or co-author of 5 books from 1998 until now (12.5 years). In the last 2 years, Obama is listed as author or co-author on over 50 books!!!!! What is he getting paid to do in the White House? Obviously, not his job….. Don't believe me? Check Amazon or Barnes and Noble or Borders websites.

          I agree with "inventormiss." You're not paying attention.

    • January 4, 2011

      I'm going to agree with tkelly…it would not apply to you. You aren't the kind of person of whom I'm speaking. The specific ones I'm talking about are the people I mentioned in the press, mostly. My own husband has reservations about Sarah and I would not lump him in with the maniacs. As to the criticism and ridicule I hand out: There is a big difference between attacking Maureen Dowd (who attacks people all day long for a living) and attacking you…innocent poster, private citizen. I would never go after my neighbor the way I go after public people. But when you enter into the fray, you must expect a few punches. Furthermore, the Right has been, despite another claim on here to the contrary, reeeeaally bad at fighting back. Well, I'm good at it. And I'm going to swing hard and aim for a knockout. They play dirty and you can't win a fixed fight by playing fair. As a public person, Sarah Palin is a fair target for ridicule. But I have a right to defend her. And I think, as I've pointed out that the hatred that has been hurled at her is WAY over the top and done by people who claim to be "unbiased."

      I claim no such thing. I am a conservative so right away you know where I come from intellectually. It's honest. What they do is dishonest. They lie about objectivity and then stick a knife in every conservative they can while claiming to be "fair."

      Your comment about your family hunting and fishing is exactly what I was talking about when I wrote about the progressive candidate always trying to look like "regular Americans" by staging hunting photos. And here you are…the exact American I'm talking about who got fooled by them! Frankly, I'm not sure I believe you about the pro-life stuff. Either you're just pushing buttons or you really just don't know anything about Obama's record. Either way, my generalizations were directed at the media driving the petty criticisms. Not at private citizens who've made up their own minds for various reasons.

      • January 4, 2011

        You misunderstood. I mentioned my father's hunting to make the point that even though I'm a liberal, I have no problem with hunting to put food on the table – in our case, to feed a family of six in the 50's and 60's. I've not been "fooled by them" simply because I don't care if "progressive candidates" hunt or not; this does not enter into the equation when I'm deciding to vote.

        "And I'm going to swing hard and aim for a knockout. They play dirty and you can't win a fixed fight by playing fair." There is a reason why Jesus told us to do good to them who despitefully use us; it does not enrage the conflict. You are hurting people, not only those you ridicule but your followers as well. You encourage them to ridicule as well. You can defend Sarah Palin without being offensive.

          • January 9, 2011

            Sorry, but I have to disagree. Ridicule is the tool effectively used by the Left to stifle discourse. By attacking the person rather than addressing the issues, you have curtailed the dialogue and stopped any further debate. This is nonproductive.

              • January 9, 2011

                Not the article. I was referring to the reply you posted to Happyteach2: "Ridicule is an effective tool in exposing the left. . ." Too often (especially with the Left) it degenerates into contests to determine who can come up with the most insulting comments. That is what I object to the most. Someone tried to drag me into one of these "dialogs" just the other day when I was trying to defend Sarah on another blog.

                • January 9, 2011

                  I would agree that it isn't useful to trade insults. But I do think satire and ridicule have long honored tradition in political writing. See Mark Twain…the greatest.Sent from my U.S. Cellular BlackBerry® smartphone

                  • January 9, 2011

                    True, but satire rarely gets out of hand. Not so with ridicule. "Doonesbury" and Samuel Clemens aside, I've rarely seen ridicule result in dialogue, only invective.

When I first heard (with my own ears, by the way;not just what someone said he said) Barack Obama make a statement early in his campaign that went against my pro-life stance, I seriously considered backing McCain, instead. But then I considered all those who had died in the conflicts in the Middle East and all those who weregoing to die and which candidate seemed to thrive on war and which one seemed eager to end it as soon as possible, I made my choice. Choices can be complex because life is complex. Judge me on that if you want.

          As a fellow Christian you should know, I'm not the one whose judgment should worry you. I believe I will be judged by the Almighty for my actions including voting for people who expand the killing of innocent babies. Because I know what it is (the brutal killing of children) I cannot put my other priorities like economics before the lives of children. Because of that belief, I couldn't vote for Mark Kirk here in IL even though his loss would have delivered yet another tax and spend liberal. His pro-abortion voting record was enough to lose my vote. I wish other Christians would take a similar stand. I don't judge you. But I do encourage you to consider more thoughtfully your future votes on this most evil silent holocaust. Supporting those who make it possible is unconscionable for a person who is truly pro-life. I see you had no response to Obama's vote against the Illinois Infants Born Alive Protection Act. Too terrible for you? I hope it opened your eyes to the type of person you voted for. Gianna Jesson (look her up on YouTube) is one such baby who survived an abortion. Barack Obama voted to kill babies like her. It is indisputable. You must acknowledge this or you are arguing from an intellectually dishonest place.

    Megan, this is a brilliant piece! You are a superb writer (despite the tawdry correction of ONE word in the entire piece that wasn't correct.) keep it up, girl, this is classic!

      You can call it "tawdry" (or "anal") if you like, but the resultant dialogue was fantastic!

      I have finally given up on correcting the blunders of commentators. The greatest faux pas seem to be the use of "there" and "their". It always turns my stomach.

  14. January 4, 2011

    I agree with everything in the list. I would add that there is a political dimension, as well.

    For the first time in my living memory, there are more pro-life advocates than abortion rights advocates in the USA, and I believe Sarah is the primary mover of that dynamic. Every time I see a picture of Sarah holding little Trig, or playing with him on her TLC show, I can understand how many have come to change their perspective on the right to life. I have never seen a more positive image of any political personage, and she doesn't have to stage such moments. They come naturally to her. Sarah is authentic, so much so that she can move minds and hearts.

    During the recent election, if polls are to be believed, more white women voted Republican than Democratic. The heart of the Dem coalition, for decades, has been the women's vote. What happened? Sarah Palin and the Mama Grizzlies, that's what. If you're a leftie, nothing represents a greater threat to your electoral health than losing the women's vote. Sarah is the one candidate who is making that happen.

    To the left, she is the anti-Christ who contradicts everything they believe in. Much worse for them, she is the political force of nature that could blow them all away by redefining and stealing their feminist narrative and becoming the new, improved model of American feminism. The Left would still have racial identity politics to fall back on, but the sexual identity political ground is shifting from right under their feet.

    Sarah is honest. How interesting a comment on our political climate is the fact that forthright honesty in a politician is so refreshing. When Obi-Wanna says he is pro-life, everyone knows he is lying, even his most ardent supporters. When Sarah says she is pro-life, everyone believes her, even her worst enemies. When Sarah says she is animated by her religious faith, everyone knows she is telling the truth. When Obi-Wanna says the same thing, virtually everyone believes he is just assuming a political pose.

    Sarah is not just authentic, but she is "authentic" in the Existentialist sense of that term. No higher compliment can be paid to anyone by an Existentialist Euro-Socialist progressive thinker, than that. Deep down they know that she is the real thing, and that they are not. It just drives them nuts.

    Are they really scared of Sarah? You betcha!

Thanks for proving my point.

    Excellent article, Megan. You seem to have identified several of the Left's pet peeves. What you failed to note is that some of them are also held by the RNC. I have been perplexed by the condemnation of Sarah Palin by people I respect such as George Will. Since I watched George's appearance on "Donahue" many years ago, he has been one of my favorite sources for rebuttal against the Leftist extreme.

    Back on subject: I do have one "bone of contention" with both the Republican/Conservative and Palin platform(s). Although I am pro-life, I am also pro-choice, and for reasons that are also Conservative. I don't think the government has any business in the arena. Abortion has been available and practiced since prehistoric times, whether by use of Mistletoe berries or Slippery Elm branches, usually for the health of the mother, but not always. I believe that education and support are more viable solutions than legislation. This just seems to be one more arena for "Big Government" where it is none of their business.

      It comes down to if you believe or not that an unborn baby is a human life. If you do, which it is, then it is Constitutionally protected. I would urge you to do some research on this issue. Fetal development is much more known and studied than ever before. You must ask yourself, even if you end up coming down on the side of abortion, should we allow these "doctors" to tear babies limb from limb without even the relief of an anesthetic? We KNOW they feel pain. They are mammals after all. Their nervous systems are fully formed by 12 weeks. And the Left refuses legislation to give them basic anesthesia. This is cruel and unusual. Just because abortion is something people have always done does not mean we can't come to a new understanding of what it is. We live in a marvelous age of never-before seen technology allowing us to peer into the womb…something that has never in the history of man been done before. All excuses, all ignorance is now gone forever. There must be some way to become a more humane society for our most vulnerable. Don't you agree?

      • January 12, 2011

        I sent a reply via email as directed about nine hours ago, but for some reason it never appeared, so here it is:

        Thank you for replying.

        “There must be some way to become a more humane society for our most vulnerable.” Yes, I do agree, but I also have strong reservations.

        I believe that both extremes of the argument are wrong. “Abortion on Demand” is clearly wrong. That turns it into a thoughtless method of birth control. (This may seem heartless or callous, but I came to the conclusion that STD, particularly HIV, have done much to help limit this usage. One “fear tactic” the Left didn’t need to conjure up.)

        (continued)

      • January 12, 2011

        (continuation 1)

        On the other hand, criminalizing abortion is equally wrong. There are good reasons for allowing it to be used. First, there is no program to adequately care for abandoned/unwanted/neglected children. Children’s Services nation wide are woefully inadequate and, often, counterproductive. Second, if the life of the mother is at high risk, the mother should have the option without risk of reprisal or censure. Third, if the prognosis for the child is an extremely short, painful life, should not the mother have the option of protecting her child? Fourth, how about a woman (underage or mature) who is a victim of rape? Should she be forced to carry the fetus to term?

        (continued)

        • January 14, 2011

          Actually, according to recent research (and according to many women that I know personally), having an abortion after being a victim of rape or incest simply serves to perpetuate the violence done to them and increases the mental anguish they endure. Abortion also serves to help rapists and predators by helping them conceal their crimes and by making their victims feel even more helpless and dependent on them. I know several women that were raped. Only one kept her child. She was 14 when she was very violently raped – so violently that it seriously damaged her uterus and it was a miracle that she was able to even carry her son to term. At 26, she only has half a uterus left and her second pregnancy was very touchy because of it. She is the only one that was able to move past the rape completely. The only one who was able to forgive her attacker and move on with her life. The other women I know fared much worse. Many developed drug and alcohol problems to medicate the severe depressions they went into. A couple had been raped before, but a pregnancy did not result from them. The severe depression and drug use didn't come as a result of the rape alone. It only came on after the rape produced a child and they had an abortion. One of my friends was 16 when this happened and her MOTHER talked into getting an abortion she didn't want because she felt it was the best thing to do. At 27, she's now been an alcoholic for 11 years. I realize that much of what I've posted are anecdotal relays of information, but they are all from the direct source. Women don't make up the tragedy of knowing they've killed their own child. They don't invent the pain and chemical dependency that results from it. So, I can assure you that the women I know really do feel that the abortion made things much, much worse for them and none would ever choose that again if they could go back.

          The Elliott Institute is the only group that does post-abortion research and their findings are pretty interesting. Here's an article about this specific topic:

        These are the main reasons for my position. My struggle is to justify the (extreme?) pro-life position with these situations. Please do not insert the God’s Will argument, because in all but my first and fourth scenarios, God’s Will has been mostly circumvented by modern medicine.

        If these reasons are not enough, then we need to propose an amendment to Obamacare to address this issue. If we are lucky enough to have Obamacare repealed, then the issue needs to be addressed before any possible Constitutional Amendment is even considered.

        Thank you,

        • January 13, 2011

          Dear John, I don't think you realize how fallible your arguments are. Let's start with "no program to adequately care for abandoned/unwanted/neglected children". This is completely untrue. There are so many families wanting to adopt babies, even sick ones, that they must go to other countries to do so! Our social services are woefully lacking in common sense, thereby trapping the older children by insisting they remain available to return to undeserving parents if and when they ever shape up. That can be changed. But are you suggesting that killing them by torturing them is a better option for them? I just can't see how that's better!
          Next: "if the prognosis for the child is an extremely short, painful life, should not the mother have the option of protecting her child?" Sooo, better again to kill the child in a painful way (all abortion is painful to the innocent baby). You consider that "protection"? I see a fault in that.
          Then: "a victim of rape? Should she be forced to carry the fetus to term?" That's a tough one for many. I look at it this way: should the innocent child be painfully killed for the sins of its father? Would we do that to a living child if his father was a rapist? Of course not….but the baby in the womb IS a living child!

          If the life of the mother is actually at risk (and these are extremely rare cases) then she should be allowed to terminate the pregnancy, in my opinion, especially if she has other children to care for. For myself though, I would trust God to bring us both through it. I've seen many a miracle that has brought the doctor's prognostication to naught.

          As for the government getting involved, it is necessary for the very same reason we have laws against murdering anyone. There must be a consequence for the taking of innocent life, whether that life be in the womb or on the street.

          • January 13, 2011

            It's been about nine hours since I replied to the email. I guess the automatic posting operation truly doesn't work, so I'll post my reply manually:

            I have never heard of documentation that anyone remembers pain they felt as a fetus. But assuming that may be the case, I have two answers for that:

            1) Concerning the rape scenario, any abortion would most probably be considered and performed in the first trimester before there is any even rudimentary cognitive ability.
            2) Considering the short life in extreme pain scenario, I’ll concede that a fetus may experience pain from some point in the second trimester through delivery. But isn’t that preferable to several months of agony with no hope of relief? Or is drug induced oblivion preferable?

            (Continued)

            (Continuation 1)

            As an aside: adults have the right to refuse treatment and so end their life with dignity. Children do not.

            On the point of care for children, are you saying that there are no infants that grow to maturity in state instructions and foster care? If that is the case, then I am woefully misinformed. I had always thought of this as a poorly kept secret. On the point of “older children”, I wholeheartedly agree. I also think (perhaps erroneously) that Social Services tends to discount the children’s wishes in this area. “But are you suggesting that killing them by torturing them is a better option for them?” I’m not sure where this statement came from, but no, I do not suggest that. If you are referring to the (now discontinued) practice in Illinois of sticking an unwanted newborn in a “closet” to die: absolutely not.

          • January 13, 2011

            (Continuation 2)

            In respect to the government getting involved, I guess we’ll have to agree to disagree. Our current Executive Branch and a large portion of the Legislative Branch are attempting to replace the Bill of Rights with Orwell’s “Big Brother”. I think “less is more” until we manage to get the nation back on track.

            aborting a fetus is a lot more humane than letting it live in pain. the abortion is very quick and the pain is over fast for the fetus. if you let it live in pain, that is just a monstrosity.
            besides the situation of a child being in pain. should I let a tape worm, or some other parasite I don't want in me, keep on living because it is alive. before the three month mark a fetus is just a human parasite, it feeds and lives off the host. I agree that abortion should not be back up birth control, but as long as its attached to my body its apart of me and what I say goes.
            often times when doctors know that a child is in pain (maybe after shaken baby syndrome) the government will get involved and have the child removed from child support.

      • February 5, 2011

        The mother carrying the unborn life is also a human life And she to is protected by the constitution. The difference between the mother and the unborn child is, the child doesn't have a job or insurance, or everyday worries about how it needs to raise a child on little or no money.
        Also everything else besides fetal development is also much more known and studies as well.
        I don't agree with abortion after the first three months of pregnancy, but even if the fetus does feel pain, we feel pain through out our lives. I also don't agree with every one who are pro life, calling the well educated men and women, butchers. and abortion is a well operated surgical procedure. And it helps thousands of people everyday. I believe that in most cases abortions are for the greater good, and no government, or group of people calling themselves pro life, can tel us what we can and can't do with our bodys, or tell us we can't own guns, or tell us that if we defend ourselves and we kill an attacker, that have to go to prison.
        One last thing, how do you propose we give anesthetic to something no bigger than 3 inches, that is deep inside a womans womb.

        • February 5, 2011

          The fetus is akin to a tapeworm? That's a well-worn comparison that is so utterly ridiculous that it hardly requires an answer. If you let the baby go to term would you birth a tapeworm? No, it would be a human being that would have your dna imprint, while also having its own unique dna. It would look like you. It would need nourishment from your body (milk) and caring from your body (holding, washing, dressing, loving) for a very long time, in fact one could conceivably say for the rest of your life you would probably be providing sustenance of some sort and comfort. At no time is this child a parasite like a tapeworm, which is not only of your dna or type, but is harmful to your body and sucks the life out of it. You have a right to kill a tapeworm that is killing you, but you should have no right to kill another person because that person is in your womb (99% because you were too careless and selfish to prevent her being there.)

          Second, so because we feel pain throughout our lives the pain of the unborn being ripped limb from limb for approximately 20 minutes is acceptable to you? Not to me. And your own child, at that! When did you ever feel that kind of pain–the kind where your arm is ripped off your body or your leg? When did your own mother inflict that kind of pain on you for no reason other than she had to feed you and take care of you?

          Third: "and abortion is a well operated surgical procedure. And it helps thousands of people everyday." Abortion kills helpless infants and also their mothers. See the grisly info coming out of Philadelphia. 50 million….MILLION babies have died since Roe v Wade was enacted. More than all the soldiers in all the wars we've ever fought in the history of our nation. 1/3 of all our babies have been killed in this inhumane way. 1/3! It's appalling. We're killing our future.

          Fourth: how to give anesthetic to something so small? easy, with a syringe. They do intrauterine operations on fetus's all the time and they give the baby anesthesia for it. But the best thing would be to let the baby grow in the uterus till she can survive on her own, have the baby and give her to someone who will love her. That's the truly humane thing to do!

          • February 5, 2011

            I'm sorry that my opinion offends you so much, but If I were carrying a baby I didn't want I would view it in the same sense I would view a tape worm. the tape worm is a tricky parasite..and it is smart enough to know that if it kills the host it will die as well. so about as often as babys kill their mothers is as often as some one is killed by a tape worm.
            Second, I'm sure the fetus bleeds out, and dies before twenty minutes.
            there are many more reasons to get an abortion other than not being able to feed and take care of a child. You know that.
            Thirdly, that's what abortion is about, getting rid of an unwanted fetus. I don't think with how many people (including children) we have in the country. About 307,006,550. I think we'll be fine.
            Fourth: alright, but the second part of my question was, how do they get the anesthesia to the fetus. as long as it doesn't require cutting the mother open, then I agree. We should use anesthesia.

              • May 18, 2011

                I would like to add, the number one thing I ever hear pro-lifers say is "leave the choice to god. If you get pregnant god wants it, if the baby dies while in the womb, god must have wanted it". I'm not quoting any one in particular. But if they want us to leave it up to god so much then shouldn't people on life support just die? so it's okay to keep people on life support even "god" had another plan for them. mechanically keeping something alive against the will of "god" it better than mechanically killing something, the most of the time if caught soon enough doesn't have a heart beat. I believe abortions are personal business and all you haters should back the duck off. It's not your ducking choice what I do with my body, And If I am not ready for a baby or just hate kids I shouldn't be forced to have any because control freaks want to control what they think is right. One last thing Sarah Palin can call her self a feminist all she wants, but she would be living a lie. feminism is all about choice and freedom! Should we have a good ol' bra burning to get this message across again.
                duck you, I'm going home. Also YOU MADD YOU MAD YOU ALLL SOOO MADDDD.

              Think about it. If they already have the cervix dilated, what's so hard about giving a shot to the fetus? They sure as heck can get hold of a leg or an arm without any trouble!

          • April 18, 2011

            "50 million….MILLION babies have died since Roe v Wade was enacted. … 1/3 of all our babies have been killed in this inhumane way. 1/3!"

            You aren't the first and won't be the last to quote these totally made-up numbers.

            Defend them with your biased sources, but it's still one of those BIG LIEs that if you tell it often enough people will start to believe it.

            It's legal, it's going to stay legal, and there's nothing you can do about it. Despite another of the BIG LIEs, no federal funds for abortion can be cut off, because there are no federal funds spent on abortion. There is no such thing as "Obamacare" and anyone using the word is discrediting themselves as lazy.

            • April 18, 2011

              Here's a source you can check out: http://www.nrlc.org/Factsheets/FS03_AbortionInThe… (Guttmacher Institute in red on this chart is the research arm of Planned Parenthood, so probably reliable in your eyes.) It states that abortion is declining in this country, but you can see that in the last 34 years (and now 38 since this chart) there have been between 700K and 1.8M per year, so you can do the math. They've got all the numbers printed out for you. Pretty darn close to the original number stated! Where is your reliable source for your non-existent numbers?

              And as for the lie about federal funds, you must be listening to MSNBC! If there are no federal dollars being spent on abortions, then why did the house just vote to defund it in DC? Hmmmm. Guess our legislators were misinformed about that.

              Obamacare is very real and it's called The Affordable Care Act–ever heard of it? It also contains funds for abortion–if not, why are several states enacting laws that will prevent those dollars being spent on abortion in their states? More misinformation? Look beyond the soundbites you're being stuffed with and find the truth about what's being done to you by your government.

    • February 24, 2011

      I also am perplexed by the condemnation or at least the reticence to support Palin from the Right. To be sure phony Right politicians and commentators disliking her is expected, but why people like Bill Bennett, Michael Medved and George Will denigrate her is frustrating. I do not have an ultimate answer but I suggest the following. The three listed above and most people like them are all Ivy League educated self-conscious intellectuals. Sarah's University of Idaho degree and her easy folksy manner grates on their own sense of accomplishment. It is true they defended George W. Bush for the most part despite his Texas drawl, but he was a fellow Ivy Leaguer.

    you laid into the people who focused on trog or whatever the kid’s name is and how there were irresponsible claims regarding who birthed him. really? this woman has been called out on more lies and misinformation than any person male or female to ever be part of the presidential election, but all that has to be given a pass because some people think she’s the kid’s mother instead of her daughter?

    i suggest you investigate the terms “cognitive dissonance” and “Dunning-Kruger effect”

    then have yourself committed because if you are not only willing to support this idiot but also willing to defend her, you are absolutely a threat to yourself and those around you and should be committed to a reputable mental institution for treatment and evaluation.

    perhaps also sterilization depending on how vigorously you defend her and the little triglodite

    Information about Gonorrhea Lectim.

    The Center for Disease Control has issued a warning about
    a new virulent strain of this old disease. The disease is called
    Gonorrhea Lectim. It's pronounced "Gonna re-elect em,"
    and it is a terrible obamanation.

    This disease is contracted through dangerous and high
    risk behavior involving putting your cranium up your
    rectum. Many victims contracted it in 2008….but now
    most people, after having been infected for the past
    1-2 years, are starting to realize how destructive this
    sickness is.

    It's sad because Gonorrhea Lectim is easily cured with
    a new drug just coming out on the market called Vote-em-out.
    You take the first dose in 2010 and the second dose in
    2012 and simple don't engage in such behavior again;
    otherwise, it could become permanent and eventually
    wipe out all life as we know it.

    Several states are already on top of this, like Virginia
    and New Jersey, and now Texas,
    with many more seeing the writing on the wall.

      @ Raymond:
      I respect you and want to thank you for serving our wonderful country: Helping us being safe and free. Also I would like to add that I think your incredibly funny. But, I would like to add that this last passage must be about you if you believe that I shouldn't have rights over my own body.

    One sunny day in January, 2013 an old man approached the White House from across Pennsylvania Avenue , where he'd been sitting on a park bench. He spoke to the U.S. Marine standing guard and said, "I would like to go in and meet with President Obama."

    The Marine looked at the man and said, "Sir, Mr. Obama is no longer president and no longer resides here."

    The old man said, "Okay", and walked away.

    The following day, the same man approached the White House and said to the same Marine, "I would like to go in and meet with President Obama."

    The Marine again told the man, "Sir, as I said yesterday, Mr. Obama is no longer president and no longer resides here."

    The man thanked him and, again, just walked away.

    The third day, the same man approached the White House and spoke to the very same U.S. Marine, saying "I would like to go in and meet with President Obama."

    The Marine, understandably agitated at this point, looked at the man and said, "Sir, this is the third day in a row you have been here asking to speak to Mr. Obama. I've told you already that Mr. Obama is no longer the president and no longer resides here, he went Fort Leavenworth Prison. Don't you understand?"

    The old man looked at the Marine and said, "Oh, I understand. I just love hearing it."

    The Marine snapped to attention, saluted, and said, "See you tomorrow, Sir!

    If Sarah Palin were a Democrat…and a very Liberal one…these hypocrites will be screaming for the Fairness Doctrine.

  28. February 22, 2011

    Okay, I'm an independent, and I really don't like Mrs Palin. Honestly Megan did not touch on even a single reason me or the other people I have talked to have for those feelings. Instead we are treated to several reasons that I find quite laughable (she is pretty, she is happily married, she has native americans in her immediate family, she can't be rattled, not a democrat, character building) . The others are generic breaks along the party lines(guns, hunting, pro-life, christian, not a democrat ).

    I had really expected to see a more serious list of the things she has done or not done to earn the hate that people direct at her.

  29. February 24, 2011

    Hmmm. I'm a liberal and I dislike Sarah Palin, but not for those reasons. It's because she says things like:

    "Dr.Laura:don't retreat…reload! (Steps aside bc her 1st Amend.rights ceased 2exist thx 2activists trying 2silence"isn't American,not fair")" —Tweets in support of Dr. Laura Schlessinger, after Schlessinger decided to leave radio following an on-air tirade about the "n-word," Aug. 18, 2010.

    She doesn't understand that the Dr. Laura flap had nothing to do with the First Amendment, as that right only proscribes government action, not actions by private corporations like Dr. Laura's employer, or the private citizens who spoke out against her. It's because she uses offensive terms like "blood libel." It's because she thinks that Russia's proximity to Alaska gives her foreign policy experience. It's because she can't think of a single newspaper or magazine she reads when asked. It's because she has no coherent platform other than being anti-tax and anti-regulation. It's because she's incoherent, period.

    I'm not american I'm British so your politics don't affect me directly, and I do agree there are people who hate on an irrational basis, but there are aspects of Sarah Palin that I can't agree with. While you do make a good point some of the left are highly hippocritical, Britain as a whole is highly left and liberal we believe that religion has no place in politics, and I'm sure you must have some idea about the position of gun control we have, but as it is one of your constitutional rights I cannot fault you, but as a country you have one of the highest rates of gun crime in the world.
    Is it reaslly a good idea to teach the young about gun control when there are other means of fending off ''rapists'' such as mace and tasers which are both available and legal in your country.
    In the event a girl does get raped by a stranger or it is incestual would you force the girl to carry the child to term? rape in itself is a horrific thing as a fellow woman you should be able to empathise, how much harder would it be to recover from if the rapist has forced his child inside of you. I am not saying that this hypothetical girl should get it aborted I am saying that she should have the choice.

    before you acuse me of being an anti-religionist I do believe in god, and I belive children are precious which is why they deserve to be given to those who want and will love them. A rape victim will find it very hard to love that child as it will serve as a huge reminder, unless you personally know someone who has been impregnated by an act of rape has kept the child and loves it unconditionally.

    • March 7, 2011

      As far as gun crime rates go, much of the violence is due to "thug culture" in inner cities. Many people there acquire guns on the black market. Thus, laws, rules, and regulations do absolutely nothing to stop them from getting guns. I have heard that states with stricter gun regulations have higher incidents of gun crimes than "gun-friendly" states but I would have to look up the exact statistics.

      Also, I do in fact know a young woman who was impregnated through rape. She, being pro-life, decided to carry the child to term and is now the mother of a healthy, happy two-year-old. It is certainly easy to leap to the conclusion that rape victims shouldn't have to bear children conceived through violent, traumatic means. But if you think logically, is it the unborn child's fault that he was conceived in this way? Why should he automatically deserve to be torn from the womb? Again, I realize that it can be difficult to consider such cases this way, but it's important to think outside the box.

      • March 27, 2011

        Just to set the record straight or at least clarify some misconceptions, a well armed citizenry contributes to MUCH LESS violent crime, period, This is according to FBI crime stats. Since 1991 violent crime has decreased by a whopping 43% at the SAME TIME that gun ownership INCREASED by about 90 million. I think it's simply common sense to know that a criminal will think twice when considering his victim is armed, even thugs aren't stupid. I can't find the stats for countries right now, but it shows the same as here in the good old well-armed USA!! LOL Here is one of my sources if you have doubts.

    Dear Megan Fox:

    CONGRATULATIONS! I wish to commend you on your truly amazing physical flexibility and dexterity. Your Yoga instructor is obviously of the highest calibre. He should be proud, I'll bet you are his star pupil.

    Take your present position, the one you currently maintain, for example…. I'll wager that If you had your head stuck any farther up your own ass, your eyes would be stinging from the acidic nature of your stomach's digestive fluids! Actually, in my personal opinion, you are already so full of excrement, it's a major wonder that you have any room left in your anal canal, for your head!

    I wish you the best of luck extracting the former from the latter, as it's obvious to me from your Sara Palin article, that you will need all the help you can get.

    I'll be damned if I will dignify your remarks by actually wasting my time, energy, and intelligence, to rebut them. Even if it reflects on me poorly as a result, so be it. I could outfox you in my sleep with one lobe tied behind my back, make no mistake of that. It's just that I have so much contempt for the utterly mendacious, totally delusional, absolutely stupid crap you publish, I can't stand the thought of running the slightest risk of somehow validating your opinions by properly addressing them.

    Yours truly,
    LoserPatrol

      …And yet, you put enough time and effort into carefully crafting this sarcastic reply–while paraphrasing Rush Limbaugh, no less!

      • March 22, 2011

        Hey, I AM Rush Limbaugh!!!

        l.o.l. Hah! Betcha you didn't see that one coming.

        Seriously, though… The "carefully crafted" sarcasm was intended as form of self-applied therapy, actually. Yes, that's right, I am just as guilty as everyone else on this planet, of sometimes posting a comment just to read my own stream of consciousness l.o.l. But thank you for your input, I take your remarks as a form of compliment (however backhanded you intended it). Because I did indeed put some thought and effort into writing that. My intention was to be far more entertaining than vitriolic. I felt that enough people had already expressed well thought/spoken proper and intelligent rebuttals, I did not wish to clutter this site with my redundancies. But I knew I would probably get a lot of flack from the other, active contributors/readers/fans of this site, if I didn't at least include that disclaimer. But you are still quite within your right to point out my failings (however deliberate I intended them), and you do so with considerable validity and correctness. Your opinions are not without merit.

        One thing I found rather disturbing about your comments on my posting, was your assertion that I was paraphrasing Rush Limbaugh (OMG, 'scuse me while I retch l.o.l. )! I swear to you on my grandmother's grave, I have never watched or listened to Rush Limbaugh's various media contributions, all my comments are wholly of my own creation. But would you be so kind and willing to enlighten me, at your own convenience and leisure of course, as to exactly what the quotes of R.L. I unwittingly mimicked, so I can make sure to never, ever, inadvertently do that again? l.o.l.

        I found your insinuated assumption that I am a member of the "Left", quite fascinating, you obviously have a talent for subtly I could only ever dream of aspiring to (l.o.l.). That's not to say you were necessarily incorrect, mind you… Nope, I'm not going to tell you what my political affiliation actually is, where on earth would be the fun in that? l.o.l.

        • April 10, 2011

          Really? Backpedal much? If you're going to go through as many lines of type as you did to basically tell someone you thought her head was up her rear end, then at least give yourself the dignity of standing by your remarks rather than lamely trying to convince us that you were "intending a form of self-therapy" and just trying to be "entertaining." So in other words aren't you just saying "it was all just a joke"? This has got to be one of the weakest forms of argumentation that you can possibly use in the world of Internet forums and comboxes…or in real life, for that matter.

          The Limbaugh quote you paraphrased so unknowingly is: "Doing this show with half my brain tied behind my back just to make things fair." He says this pretty often at the start of his radio program.

          There's little reason why I or anyone else here should care about your political affiliations. You are obviously not a conservative. In the context of this combox, this is all that's necessary to know.

      • March 27, 2011

        And still more into responding to you, lol. Then after claiming not to "dignify your remarks by wasting time, energy, blah, blah" and having gone on for several paragraphs, has yet to give even one reason for disliking her. I'm of the opinion he or she simply likes to read their own long-winded rants that contribute nothing but venom. The term "bloviate" immediately comes to mind as does the fact that the moniker "loserpatrol" is very accurate.

  33. March 29, 2011

    I am a social liberal and I don’t hate Sarah Palin for any of these reasons even though they are all very social reasons. My inability to take Mrs. Palin seriously simply comes from her having about as much political knowledge as a rotting banana. Sure she knows how to lead a troop of increasingly more ignorant conservatives incapable of independent thought but I guess an idiot will appeal to idiots.
    Megan’s reasoning is that all/most liberals hate Palin for what appears to be Megan’s own politically shallow reasons for liking Palin. This article identifies her as one of the familiar ignoramuses who will support Sarah Palin to their dying breath as long as she keeps spewing her meaningless bullsh-t on "The Real American Values" and other simple minded garbage. Any politician can scream propaganda, conservative or republican.

  34. March 29, 2011

    Why even pay attention to the fact that she is stumped by the simplest questions about her policies, political opinions, and general knowledge. Her inability to identify any Supreme Court decision dropped my jaw. Don’t get me wrong im sure there are people that dislike Palin for reasons like "she is pretty", just like there are people who dislike Obama simply because he is black (although her attractiveness is a matter of debate.) What im trying to say is Megan's attempts to bring people who are fed up with Sarah Palin down to her level of intellect is insulting and pathetic on so many levels that it’s hard not to have a chuckle and think "well isn’t that cute she thinks she’s being so smart" the EXACT way I feel every time I hear Palin talk.

  35. April 8, 2011

    You say you care about babies' rights to live, how about the people that are being slaughtered by the hundreds of thousands by these same people that claim all babies deserve to live? Don't we deserve to live too??? I honestly don't give a hoot about what you do with your country, it's yours and you can mess it up however you want, but when you come and slaughter everyone in our lands, killing, torturing and raping men women and children of all ages and not to mention destroying their homes, bombing schools and hospitals etc, all with the ridiculous and baseless claim of "fighting terrorism" when all you're doing is massacring a peaceful civilian population, then you go ahead and vote for your precious 'rightists' but the entire world wants someone like Obama, someone for once doesn't advocate massacring the innocent as an act of heroism. Everyone that claim US soldiers to be "heroes" are disgusting, I dare you come down here and see for yourself what your precious "heroes" actually do here than what they claim in your messed up laughable so-called 'free' media, and only then will I listen. Obama might not be perfect, but so far he've been the best president of america in our point of view. I don't know about palin, but if she's the same as hillary (aka the female version of george bush) then sorry, but we don't want to see her bum on the chair.

  36. April 15, 2011

    people hate Palin because she’s an idiot that makes a mockery of intelligent women everywhere. she embarrasses me as a female. your list is ridiculous and contrived.

  37. April 27, 2011

    Sad maybe, but true — it’s human nature to go to extremes to protect yourself or your family, or even your country, from people who are so inept and intellectually negligent that they are potentially dangerous. I think that explains most of the public anti-Sarah vitriol. It’s an expected extreme response, given the potential for disaster, should this callow woman ever be in a position of power over us. Perhaps ‘revulsion’ is the word that best describes such apparent overreaction and energetic Palin bashing.

    By her words and deeds, she has shown herself to be far more shallow and thus dangerous to the republic than even George W. Bush — perhaps far more so.

    However, that said, if the intention was always to put a populist puppet in office — one that could/would be easily manipulated by whoever for whatever agenda — then Sarah’s your girl, no doubt. She’s obviously never had an original thought.

    That we may want to elect a group of hidden puppet masters to actually run things is even more frightening, but I have faith that most Americans, though they hem and haw, curse and moan, will not let that happen.

    The ‘Puppet Masters’ must always ultimately be the People — NOT a political party or a “special interest” group.

  38. April 28, 2011

    “If that weren’t bad enough”
    wasn’t*
    I saw a lot of grammatical error I couldn’t be bothered going back to quote, but I stopped reading around here because I couldn’t believe that none of the political leaders can speak without notes. I’m not even a very talented speaker and I can give impromptu, ten minute speeches in front of my school of over one thousands students and the teachers.
    I seriously don’t understand how people like this are involved in politics, when an untrained seventeen year old can speak more succinctly and is a lot smarter.
    This is why I’m going to be a surgeon, even though I would love to be a charismatic speaker or politician, modern-day politicians like Palin and Obama have convinced me it would be degrading for my intelligence.
    Also, I’m never writing blogs, because this is pretty crap.
    No offence, but aren’t there more important things to discuss in the world? United States politics is one small part of global life. Try making lists on topics that are actually important in the future.
    Thanks. 😀

    Sarah Palin was…and remains….more competent to be President than Obama was….and is even today. I wouldn't mind if she took over the Oval Office first thing in the morning!

    How much did Sarah Palin pay to have this one-sided, sycophantic,( oooh – she’s so beautiful!), garbage written about her?! I hate Sarah Palin because I think that she is an idiot, plain and simple. The female version of Dubya, if you will. Oh how the rest of the world laughed at you when he got elected a second time, but seriously…if THAT woman is ever elected as president then I’m digging a bomb shelter in my back yard! And I’m quite far away as continents go, but you can never be too carefull!
    PS: Yes.. please feel free to mow down defenseless animals with your uzis or whatever the hell you use to go huntin’ and a-fishing, (a-hyuk Wilbu-u-ur!); please feel free to club baby seals to death, etc. and so forth! When you find that you’re bored with the local species’ come down south to Africa.

  43. May 19, 2011

    I'm sorry that I have to do this in multiple comments. I also apologize for any spelling/grammar errors as I currently don't have word on this computer to spellcheck.
    This was an interesting article although it saddens me that the links to the evidence that supports your statements aren't listed. It makes it so that people who don't have as much time to search the web for blogs and articles can simply click a link and see for themselves whether your arguments have merit or not. The style of the writing and the response to it is pretty much exactly what the style and response would be if anyone who is willing to make broad generalizations and not give actual evidence were to write an article about this topic. That is to say, the people who already agree with you (Republicans) all congratulate you for stating the "obvious" while those who already disagree (Democrats) all scorn your stupidity. This leaves the rest of us (either Reps, Dems, or somewhere in between who are actually willing to not just be spoon fed whatever our party tells us) to roll our eyes and move.

  44. May 19, 2011

    The problem with this is that the people who agree or disagree with you based solely on their political affiliations aren't going to change their mind by reading this. The only people who this can affect are those who aren't mindless idiots. Sadly this article does nothing to sway these types of people one way or the other. I read each of these arguments and think to myself "well you may be right but I'm sure plenty of people say that Palin wants to blow up the world but unless there is more evidence than 'trust me, this is what is right' I'm going to be skeptical."

  45. May 19, 2011

    I used to be someone who spewed out whatever I was told by my parents and just assumed the general descriptions of Republicans and Democrats were acurate. Then I received a nice shock when I started mingling with Republicans who are intelligent and realized that not all Republicans are evil fools. Then I started mingling outside of my group of friends and realized a lot of Democrats are complete idiots. Your comments about guns and hunting bother me. I'm liberal (more or less) and I plan on owning guns, hunting, and taking a conceal and carry class (after which I will exercise my right to not carry a firearm). It's as stupid a statement as me saying all Republicans are gun wielding lunatics.

  46. May 19, 2011

    The only other thing I wanted to comment on was your abortion comments. It was the one thing that actually made me a little angry. You attempt to make the Dems out to be these arrogant "arbiters of life and death" when in reality, we are all arbiters of life and death. Every single person believes that they are right about who should live and who should die. Some people try to hide this by saying that they feel they don't deserve to have a say on this issue but in reality they are saying that they agree with what the society has decided. On this issue you just as arrogant as I am only you try to hide it and point out only my flaw. You are the true terror, the person who denies their own flaws but points out the flaws of others.

  47. May 19, 2011

    Ultimately the abortion issue comes down to what your beliefs are. At what point do you believe the sperm and egg becomes a person? If the answer is at conception (which I'm guessing you believe) then abortions are wrong. If the answer is later (as I believe) then abortions before a certain date are not wrong. I'm not going to convince you and you aren't going to convince me. All that we can do is hope enough people agree with us that we can out vote the other side.

  48. September 22, 2011

    It’s simple just like Sarah! To be in a leading roll in our nation you should have some kind of intelligence, I would hope that everyone feels the same on this issue. I mean people please this is our country were talking about and the last thing we can afford is another Bush. Our nation which I love so dear has been brought to its knees by fools. I know I didn’t spend 8 years in the U.S. Army to see my country destroyed by puppets and puppet masters! Please people think before you vote!

  49. April 5, 2012

    An absolutely silly article! This is obviously spoken by a right winger yet for whatever reason they believe they know why democrats didn't vote for her.
    In case you haven't noticed, it's typically the republican party who is in a tizzy about looks and race…oh yes and religion.
    We, and I think I can speak for anyone who did not support Palin did not side with her, not because we think she is better looking or because she carries a gun but because she knows little to nothing about politics.
    It's laughable that she would even try to run for any govornment job..

    Liberals are confused, and they are sheep. They believed all of the lies Obama, Pelosi and Reid have said about Obamacare, all of them are demagogues who delight in rhetoric, half-truths, mis-staements and lies.
    The only truthful statement Harry Reid ever said is : "Obama is a light skinned African with no Negro dialect". Harry actually said that. Excepet it's also a lie, Obama is a mulatto, that's the dictionary definition of the offspring of a black parent and a white parent.
    Pelosi also said: " I believe in natural gas as a clean, cheap alternative to fossil fuels" Duh, someone go tell her that natural gas is a fossil fuel. She also said, "You have to pass the bill (Obamacare) to see what's in the bill". Well folks, that's because she's smarter than you, because she's 73 years old and has had plastic surgery, so that must mean she's smart. She is also about to be excommunicated from the Catholic Church because she insists, this is her logic not mine, that "By spending millions of dollars on Planned Parenthood funding (abortions), the Federal Government is SAVING money". Got that? By SPENDING money, she's SAVING you money. She also quotes excerpts from the Old Testament except, duh, the quotes aren't even in the Old Testament.
    Pelosi also claimed that "every week we don't pass a stimulus 500 million Americans lose their job".
    As for Obama, his own grandmother said she was in the room in Kenya when he was born. Also the Cold Case Posse, comprised of police officers who are sworn to uphold the law, have irrefutably proven that the birth certificate and draft care phonies. Obama himself told his literary agent, "I was born in Kenya". His literary agent could not have mistakenly typed Kenya instead of Hawaii. His wife Michelle, who recently described herself as a "single Mother" (there is speculation that the marriage license is a complete sham), said on a visit to Kenya that Obama was glad to be back in his homeland. That can only mean one thing.
    Both Obamas have had to surrender their law licenses, and the reason the Liberal Mainstream Media hasn't run any stories is because they were promised "interviews" if they never brought up that fact that neither one has a law license. Clinton had to give his up too btw, something about Democrats I suppose that causes them to get it, and then give it up.
