The number one reason the left hates Sarah Palin is because she’s not one of them. Rest assured, if she was pro-abortion and pro-big government, they would be announcing her as the second coming of Fidel Castro. (I would have said Christ, but we all know how much they despise Him.) She has outsmarted them at every turn. Everything they said would be her demise has made her more popular. The Dancing With the Stars debacle was hilarious. They were so mad about Bristol doing well, but imagine how different it would be if Chelsea Clinton had gone on the show? They tried to impugn Bristol for everything. Her clothes were too dowdy, then they were too racy, it’s a fluff show, no one will take her seriously…they just couldn’t make up their minds on how to get rid of her. Kevin DuJan at Hillbuzz.org made sure they failed. Good times.
Then the “reality show” came out and they were sure they’d be able to ridicule her for that too. Pundits on both sides called it “un-presidential,” without watching it. I would like to remind them that Ronald Reagan once played opposite a chimpanzee. And contrary to being about entertainment, Alaska is far more. It’s a brilliant show packed full of conservative values that is communicating to the young in their language. It is simply brilliant. And really, what’s worse to a leftist than Sarah Palin doing something smart?
The real reason they hate Sarah is because no one on their side has anywhere near the charisma, star power, and influence as she does. And they’re pea green with envy!
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.)
