"Liberals will tell you who they fear"...

…those are the words of Rush Lim­baugh and they describe Sarah Palin to a T:

ITEM: Andrew Sul­li­van con­tin­ues to exhibit the signs of Advanced Sullivan’s Syn­drome when­ever Sarah Palin comes up

What you see here is the chart of the Real Clear Pol­i­tics poll aver­age for the 2008 pres­i­den­tial cam­paign, show­ing that by Sept. 8, the McCain-​Palin ticket was lead­ing by 2.9 points — with the RCP aver­age for the Repub­li­can ticket (48.3) on that date being the high­est poll show­ing of McCain vs. Obama at any point dur­ing the entire cam­paign, even before either can­di­date had won his party’s nomination.

When Sarah Palin’s name was announced as the GOP vice-​presidential can­di­date on Sept. 29, Andrew Sul­li­van saw what every­one saw: Here was a poten­tial game-​changer.

I remem­ber that num­bers game, the democ­rats were in dead panic, and in my opin­ion still are.

Item: Peo­ple are get­ting vio­lent

The gen­eral con­sen­sus is that Cowan was a left­ist suf­fer­ing from a par­tic­u­larly bad case of Palin Derange­ment Syn­drome (via meme­o­ran­dum). The story really doesn’t bear that out, though. I mean, he could have got­ten just as enraged had be seen any spoiled politician’s daugh­ter who had wran­gled her way into a posi­tion that she would never have earned save for her last name.

That’s not to say that Bris­tol Palin is one of those bratty daugh­ters (let the record reflect that I don’t believe she is), but given the gen­eral dis­po­si­tion of politi­cians’ daugh­ters, you can for­give him just a lit­tle for think­ing she is. It’s not as if the media has made any real effort to show her otherwise.

Item: Adults are obsess­ing with a teen girls facebook

Wil­low Palin is a 16 year old girl who, like all 16 year olds is going to make mis­takes and say things she shouldn’t have. This, how­ever, has noth­ing to do with Wil­low Palin or the sub­stance of what she said on Face­book. The ‘slur’ used here is one you could hear on the streets of West Hol­ly­wood or Chelsea every day of the week. Appar­ently, it’s only a ‘homo­pho­bic slur’ when it comes from the daugh­ter of a con­ser­v­a­tive female leader. Make no mis­take; this is all about destroy­ing Sarah Palin by any means necessary.

The angry misog­y­nis­tic left and their accom­plices in the main stream media have been unable to take down Gov­er­nor Palin – no mat­ter how hard they have tried. Unable to take her down directly they now have decided to try to hurt her by attack­ing the most impor­tant thing in her life – her family.

Any per­son, gay or straight, who par­tic­i­pates in this cheap polit­i­cal smear should be ashamed of themselves.”

Mean­while Bris­tol Palin shows more class than those who wish to judge her:

Wil­low and I shouldn’t have reacted to neg­a­tive com­ments about our fam­ily. We apol­o­gize. On a nicer note, thank you for sup­port­ing the great com­pe­ti­tion in Danc­ing with the Stars!

And those hav­ing no daugh­ters of her own the Lonely Con­ser­v­a­tive (our guest next week!) asks the rel­e­vant question

Left­ies are in a tizzy because of some things the Palin girls wrote on their face­book pages. Who, but the deranged, spends time read­ing teenagers’ face­book postings?

It’s a pretty good ques­tion, what would advo­cates on the left say if it was the face­book of one of the Obama girls?

Item: Panic overdanc­ing show

This will be a dis­as­ter for the show if Bris­tol wins,” one TV insider tells me. “Any cred­itabil­ity the show had will be over. It will go from being a danc­ing com­pe­ti­tion to a pop­u­lar­ity com­pe­ti­tion where who­ever has the most rabid fan base will always win no mat­ter how lit­tle tal­ent they have.”

And while it’s true Bristol’s danc­ing has dra­mat­i­cally improved since the sea­son began, no one with work­ing eyes would put her in the same league as the other remain­ing stars, Jen­nifer Grey and Kyle Massey.

Excuse me “Danc­ing with the Stars” has cred­i­bil­ity? It’s a danc­ing show that has the pub­lic vot­ing on who stays or goes, just like Amer­i­can Idol. What kind of cred­i­bil­ity do you think it had? Allah Pun­dit puts it well:

Is there any bet­ter proof of how stu­pid the hyper­ven­ti­lat­ing over Bris­tol and “Danc­ing With the Stars” has been than “The Daily Show” feel­ing obliged to open the pro­gram with a defense of the Palins? Even if it is basi­cally just a lead-​in to a seg­ment goof­ing on her new show? This is like flip­ping over to Maddow’s pro­gram and being greeted with the seg­ment, “Maybe we’re being too hard on Jim DeMint.”

Full dis­clo­sure. I don’t watch Danc­ing with the Stars, I have no inter­est­ing in Danc­ing with the Stars, I never will have any inter­est in Danc­ing with the stars and I don’t care who wins or doesn’t win, but it is fun to watch the the left go Kry­ten over this.

Item: Sour grapes

JOE SCAR­BOR­OUGH: She’s not going to run. It’s The Art of War. The rea­son she’s say­ing this is cause she knows she can’t win. She knows she’s got to keep her name out in the press. She knows her poll num­bers are drop­ping. She knows that she was humil­i­ated in her home state of Alaska. She knows that Chris­tine O’Donnell did not work out well. And so – I hate to say it – it’s about money.

And so, this keeps things ginned up. Because if she wasn’t say­ing this right now, peo­ple would be writ­ing her Dany Quayle polit­i­cal obit­u­ary. So, she’s going to stir it up, and get peo­ple talk­ing about to get in the mix. Now lis­ten: you can hate me at home if you want to, and Mom, go ahead and write me the email, call me a Marx­ist. It’s the real­ity; it’s what’s hap­pen­ing. And it is so patently obvi­ous I’m sur­prised more peo­ple haven’t picked up on it.

Joe I like you a lot, and if my show gets that 2nd hour some­time next year I’d love to have you with or with­out Mika on but if you think that Sarah Palin has been “humil­i­ated” in the last elec­tion and call that real­ity then you need to have some­body cut the mind alter­ing drugs you are being fed a bit more. Or is it just in the con­tract of all MSNBC con­ser­v­a­tives not named Buchanan that they must dis Sarah Palin to pre­serve the Niche Mar­ket of the MSNBC Brand?

Oh and lets face it it’s you lot that hit depend on Sarah Palin for money, every time you hit her, or put her on the air, or what­ever your rat­ings soar. That’s why you are upset she is not on your show, not because she is a cow­ard, but because she isn’t both­er­ing to punch downwards.

Item: Peo­ple are get­ting upset over typos

From a strictly lex­i­cal inter­pre­ta­tion of the dif­fer­ent con­texts in which Palin has used “refu­di­ate,” we have con­cluded that nei­ther “refute” nor “repu­di­ate” seems con­sis­tently pre­cise, and that “refu­di­ate” more or less stands on its own, sug­gest­ing a gen­eral sense of “reject.”

Lawrence O’Donnell got wee-wee’d up with the deci­sion, and lashed out against the dic­tio­nary for allow­ing Sarah Palin to ruin the Eng­lish lan­guage, or some­thing. He is also annoyed that for a woman, who he claims will not run for pres­i­dent, gets this much atten­tion. Then why talk about her if she is so irrelevant?

What­ever you might think about Lawrence O’Donnell he is a smart polit­i­cal oper­a­tor. He doesn’t waste his time on tar­gets that don’t threaten his admit­ted social­ist agenda.

Item: And here comes the old Bush Grav­i­tas ques­tion:

The arti­cle by Robert Draper was much more fas­ci­nat­ing as a snap­shot of where the New York Times is at this moment regard­ing the for­mer Alaska governor.

Now we can take it as a given that the pow­ers that be on 44th Street would pre­fer China’s Hu Jin­tao — pos­si­bly even Hugo Chavez or Ahmadine­jad — for U.S. pres­i­dent to Sarah Palin. Nev­er­the­less, they have a prob­lem. Is it bet­ter to tear down Palin unmer­ci­fully now, as was done by most of the MSM ear­lier, or to give her a pass for the time being, so that she might actu­ally get nom­i­nated to be branded later, when it counts, as a dan­ger­ous extrem­ist, not to men­tion an illit­er­ate moron?

As Simon con­tin­ues the whole book ques­tion comes up as the Times

I explained to Palin that in my view, at least, this line of inquiry wasn’t gra­tu­itous — that ques­tions did in fact linger about her “grav­i­tas gap.”

Ques­tions linger… Ah, poor Sarah. So inse­cure about her intel­lect. Ah, the “grav­i­tas gap.” What we are we to do?

Let’s leave aside the snide qual­ity of the writ­ing (his and mine), the absur­dity that Katie Couric could be the arbi­tra­tor of any­thing intel­lec­tual, and even that Draper is sim­ply rehears­ing the tired nos­trum that Democ­rats are more edu­cated than Babbit-​like Repub­li­cans (when the Times itself finally admit­ted than Bush had bet­ter grades than Kerry at Yale) and ask some­thing sim­ple and impor­tant that rarely gets asked: What the Hell dif­fer­ence does this make anyway?

Katie Couric would be the laughing-​stock of the media for man­ag­ing to Sink a ship already at the bot­tom at CBS, but she helped stop the Palin when the one needed it so she will remain in the pan­theon of heroes of the MSM and the 44th street crowd.

Item Spencer Bau­cus the voice of the GOP:

Alabama Rep. Spencer Bachus ® told mem­bers of the South Shelby Cham­ber of Com­merce that for­mer Alaska gov­er­nor and vice pres­i­den­tial can­di­date Sarah Palin was prob­a­bly the rea­son for the GOP’s fail­ure to take con­trol in the U.S. Sen­ate in last week’s election.

The Sen­ate would be Repub­li­can today except for states (in which Palin endorsed can­di­dates) like Chris­tine O’Donnell in Delaware,” Bachus said. “Sarah Palin cost us con­trol of the Senate.”

Tell me how much favor­able cov­er­age Spencer Bachus has got­ten in the MSM before that com­ment? any­one Bueller? Bueller?

Every repub­li­can chal­lenger will be using back benchers like Spencer like this over the next year to hit Palin because they don’t dare attack her openly and risk los­ing sup­port of those of us who sup­port her. And the media will lap it up.

Let’s bot­tom line this: Sarah Palin is the per­son lib­er­als most fear, because of what she means cul­tur­ally, she makes a lie out of truths they have con­vinced them­selves of for years.

Sarah Palin is also the per­son the repub­li­can estab­lish­ment fear the most because she means it when she says about change and that threat­ens their per­sonal prerogatives.

It will not be a bor­ing year.

…those are the words of Rush Limbaugh and they describe Sarah Palin to a T:

ITEM: Andrew Sullivan continues to exhibit the signs of Advanced Sullivan’s Syndrome whenever Sarah Palin comes up

What you see here is the chart of the Real Clear Politics poll average for the 2008 presidential campaign, showing that by Sept. 8, the McCain-Palin ticket was leading by 2.9 points — with the RCP average for the Republican ticket (48.3) on that date being the highest poll showing of McCain vs. Obama at any point during the entire campaign, even before either candidate had won his party’s nomination.

When Sarah Palin’s name was announced as the GOP vice-presidential candidate on Sept. 29, Andrew Sullivan saw what everyone saw: Here was a potential game-changer.

I remember that numbers game, the democrats were in dead panic, and in my opinion still are.

Item: People are getting violent

The general consensus is that Cowan was a leftist suffering from a particularly bad case of Palin Derangement Syndrome (via memeorandum). The story really doesn’t bear that out, though. I mean, he could have gotten just as enraged had be seen any spoiled politician’s daughter who had wrangled her way into a position that she would never have earned save for her last name.

That’s not to say that Bristol Palin is one of those bratty daughters (let the record reflect that I don’t believe she is), but given the general disposition of politicians’ daughters, you can forgive him just a little for thinking she is. It’s not as if the media has made any real effort to show her otherwise.

Item: Adults are obsessing with a teen girls facebook

“Willow Palin is a 16 year old girl who, like all 16 year olds is going to make mistakes and say things she shouldn’t have. This, however, has nothing to do with Willow Palin or the substance of what she said on Facebook. The ‘slur’ used here is one you could hear on the streets of West Hollywood or Chelsea every day of the week. Apparently, it’s only a ‘homophobic slur’ when it comes from the daughter of a conservative female leader. Make no mistake; this is all about destroying Sarah Palin by any means necessary.

“The angry misogynistic left and their accomplices in the main stream media have been unable to take down Governor Palin – no matter how hard they have tried. Unable to take her down directly they now have decided to try to hurt her by attacking the most important thing in her life – her family.

“Any person, gay or straight, who participates in this cheap political smear should be ashamed of themselves.”

Meanwhile Bristol Palin shows more class than those who wish to judge her:

Willow and I shouldn’t have reacted to negative comments about our family. We apologize. On a nicer note, thank you for supporting the great competition in Dancing with the Stars!

And those having no daughters of her own the Lonely Conservative (our guest next week!) asks the relevant question

Lefties are in a tizzy because of some things the Palin girls wrote on their facebook pages. Who, but the deranged, spends time reading teenagers’ facebook postings?

It’s a pretty good question, what would advocates on the left say if it was the facebook of one of the Obama girls?

Item: Panic over a dancing show

“This will be a disaster for the show if Bristol wins,” one TV insider tells me. “Any creditability the show had will be over. It will go from being a dancing competition to a popularity competition where whoever has the most rabid fan base will always win no matter how little talent they have.”

And while it’s true Bristol’s dancing has dramatically improved since the season began, no one with working eyes would put her in the same league as the other remaining stars, Jennifer Grey and Kyle Massey.

Excuse me “Dancing with the Stars” has credibility? It’s a dancing show that has the public voting on who stays or goes, just like American Idol. What kind of credibility do you think it had? Allah Pundit puts it well:

Is there any better proof of how stupid the hyperventilating over Bristol and “Dancing With the Stars” has been than “The Daily Show” feeling obliged to open the program with a defense of the Palins? Even if it is basically just a lead-in to a segment goofing on her new show? This is like flipping over to Maddow’s program and being greeted with the segment, “Maybe we’re being too hard on Jim DeMint.”

Full disclosure. I don’t watch Dancing with the Stars, I have no interesting in Dancing with the Stars, I never will have any interest in Dancing with the stars and I don’t care who wins or doesn’t win, but it is fun to watch the the left go Kryten over this.

Item: Sour grapes

JOE SCARBOROUGH: She’s not going to run. It’s The Art of War. The reason she’s saying this is cause she knows she can’t win. She knows she’s got to keep her name out in the press. She knows her poll numbers are dropping. She knows that she was humiliated in her home state of Alaska. She knows that Christine O’Donnell did not work out well. And so–I hate to say it–it’s about money.

And so, this keeps things ginned up. Because if she wasn’t saying this right now, people would be writing her Dany Quayle political obituary. So, she’s going to stir it up, and get people talking about to get in the mix. Now listen: you can hate me at home if you want to, and Mom, go ahead and write me the email, call me a Marxist. It’s the reality; it’s what’s happening. And it is so patently obvious I’m surprised more people haven’t picked up on it.

Joe I like you a lot, and if my show gets that 2nd hour sometime next year I’d love to have you with or without Mika on but if you think that Sarah Palin has been “humiliated” in the last election and call that reality then you need to have somebody cut the mind altering drugs you are being fed a bit more. Or is it just in the contract of all MSNBC conservatives not named Buchanan that they must dis Sarah Palin to preserve the Niche Market of the MSNBC Brand?

Oh and lets face it it’s you lot that hit depend on Sarah Palin for money, every time you hit her, or put her on the air, or whatever your ratings soar. That’s why you are upset she is not on your show, not because she is a coward, but because she isn’t bothering to punch downwards.

Item: People are getting upset over typos

From a strictly lexical interpretation of the different contexts in which Palin has used “refudiate,” we have concluded that neither “refute” nor “repudiate” seems consistently precise, and that “refudiate” more or less stands on its own, suggesting a general sense of “reject.”

Lawrence O’Donnell got wee-wee’d up with the decision, and lashed out against the dictionary for allowing Sarah Palin to ruin the English language, or something. He is also annoyed that for a woman, who he claims will not run for president, gets this much attention. Then why talk about her if she is so irrelevant?

Whatever you might think about Lawrence O’Donnell he is a smart political operator. He doesn’t waste his time on targets that don’t threaten his admitted socialist agenda.

Item: And here comes the old Bush Gravitas question:

The article by Robert Draper was much more fascinating as a snapshot of where the New York Times is at this moment regarding the former Alaska governor.

Now we can take it as a given that the powers that be on 44th Street would prefer China’s Hu Jintao — possibly even Hugo Chavez or Ahmadinejad — for U.S. president to Sarah Palin. Nevertheless, they have a problem. Is it better to tear down Palin unmercifully now, as was done by most of the MSM earlier, or to give her a pass for the time being, so that she might actually get nominated to be branded later, when it counts, as a dangerous extremist, not to mention an illiterate moron?

As Simon continues the whole book question comes up as the Times

I explained to Palin that in my view, at least, this line of inquiry wasn’t gratuitous — that questions did in fact linger about her “gravitas gap.”

Questions linger… Ah, poor Sarah. So insecure about her intellect. Ah, the “gravitas gap.” What we are we to do?

Let’s leave aside the snide quality of the writing (his and mine), the absurdity that Katie Couric could be the arbitrator of anything intellectual, and even that Draper is simply rehearsing the tired nostrum that Democrats are more educated than Babbit-like Republicans (when the Times itself finally admitted than Bush had better grades than Kerry at Yale) and ask something simple and important that rarely gets asked: What the Hell difference does this make anyway?

Katie Couric would be the laughing-stock of the media for managing to Sink a ship already at the bottom at CBS, but she helped stop the Palin when the one needed it so she will remain in the pantheon of heroes of the MSM and the 44th street crowd.

Item Spencer Baucus the voice of the GOP:

Alabama Rep. Spencer Bachus (R) told members of the South Shelby Chamber of Commerce that former Alaska governor and vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin was probably the reason for the GOP’s failure to take control in the U.S. Senate in last week’s election.

“The Senate would be Republican today except for states (in which Palin endorsed candidates) like Christine O’Donnell in Delaware,” Bachus said. “Sarah Palin cost us control of the Senate.”

Tell me how much favorable coverage Spencer Bachus has gotten in the MSM before that comment? anyone Bueller? Bueller?

Every republican challenger will be using back benchers like Spencer like this over the next year to hit Palin because they don’t dare attack her openly and risk losing support of those of us who support her. And the media will lap it up.

Let’s bottom line this: Sarah Palin is the person liberals most fear, because of what she means culturally, she makes a lie out of truths they have convinced themselves of for years.

Sarah Palin is also the person the republican establishment fear the most because she means it when she says about change and that threatens their personal prerogatives.

It will not be a boring year.
