Sarah Palin's America is now here

Polls are only good for strip­pers and cross-​country skiers

Sarah Palin two days before the election

There is one aspect of the Don­ald Trump vic­tory that is not get­ting much press. the fact that it is yet another huge win for Sarah Palin over the media and culture.

In 2010 I wrote about how Sarah Palin (Along with Rush Lim­baugh) was the big win­ner in the first big red wave:

CBS news pointed out Sarah Palin endorsed 43 house can­di­dates of which 30 won while win­ning 7 of 12 Sen­ate endorsed can­di­dates. Sen­a­tor Jim Demitt said “she’s done a lot of good for the Repub­li­can Party, and for our coun­try.” And Rush Lim­baugh, hav­ing none of the spin of the major­ity of the Main­stream media on the 4th said: “If any­body is an obvi­ous win­ner here, aside, of course, from me, it would be Palin.”

So to con­ser­v­a­tives who are bask­ing in the joy of a his­toric ques­tion I say to you : “Never for­get that it is to Rush Lim­baugh and Sarah Palin that you really owe these victories.”

Later I wrote about Sarah Palin as a polit­i­cal ven­ture capitalist

Sarah Palin is the per­fect polit­i­cal cap­i­tal­ist, she has taken her polit­i­cal cap­i­tal, invested it in the can­di­dates of her choice and come out with even more. No amount of polit­i­cal snark or clever Conan skits will change that.

Palin had become a punch­line for the MSM who ignored the fact that her div­ing into the cul­ture via all kinds of TV projects was a case of fight­ing for her val­ues on the MSM’s turf, the media cul­ture. She cre­ated a whole new nar­ra­tive that the wonks didn’t see coming.

Fur­ther­more in Trump she rec­og­nized that Trump was a per­son who knew how to play the media game & her endorse­ment of Trump while spoofed at SNL

bailed him out (to my dis­ap­point­ment at the time) at a time when Cruz had flanked him on the right

Ted Cruz had run cir­cles around him on the Birther Issue but had very effec­tively turned what was a win­ning debate moment for Trump, (NY Val­ues) into a neg­a­tive. Cruz had man­aged to do what Perry, Bush, Paul and Gra­ham could not, counter Trump effec­tively. It was so bad that Trump found him­self booed by activists which is not some­thing he is used to.

Talk radio hosts had either advised him against his attacks on Cruz or directly hit him for these attacks. It was a moment of cri­sis, one of the first moments of cri­sis for the campaign.

Then comes the Sarah Palin endorse­ment and the nar­ra­tive changes

Now the topic becomes how Trump got this key endorse­ment over Cruz.

As late as nine days ago we saw sto­ries pok­ing her like this one from the Detroit Free Press: Sarah Palin stumps for Trump in Detroit for few sup­port­ers, hecklers

About a dozen sup­port­ers came to the bar for the stop, but sev­eral peo­ple walk­ing by started pound­ing on the win­dow when they noticed her. One said “I have no respect for you.” And some­one sprayed some sort of sub­stance into the bar from out­side that had many in the tav­ern momen­tar­ily coughing.

That per­son is now likely hid­ing in a safe space after Trump took Michigan.

What does all this mean, just this:

Sarah Palin picked up the man­tle of con­ser­vatism after the elec­tion of Barack Obama when every­one else was ready to give up. She helped deliver two big red waves and now 8 years after the news media, the media cul­ture and the estab­lish­ment GOP began laugh­ing at her non­stop with­out grasp­ing what she has been doing we have Don­ald Trump, who she endorsed in the White House, with a Repub­li­can house and a Repub­li­can sen­ate and the prospect of her being the next Sec­re­tary of the Interior.

None of which the now cel­e­brat­ing GOP mem­bers got from the establishment.

So let me close by remind­ing my fel­low con­ser­v­a­tives who are still enjoy­ing the media’s dis­tress and the sight of spe­cial snowflakes show­ing how val­ue­less their $50,000 a year edu­ca­tions are as they melt to pieces over the thought of our new­found power, of some­thing they might have forgotten.

Never for­get that it is to Sarah Palin that we owe these victories

So to conservatives who are basking in the joy of a historic question I say to you : “Never forget that it is to Rush Limbaugh and Sarah Palin that you really owe these victories.”

Sarah Palin is the perfect political capitalist, she has taken her political capital, invested it in the candidates of her choice and come out with even more. No amount of political snark or clever Conan skits will change that.

Palin had become a punchline for the MSM who ignored the fact that her diving into the culture via all kinds of TV projects was a case of fighting for her values on the MSM’s turf, the media culture. She created a whole new narrative that the wonks didn’t see coming.

Furthermore in Trump she recognized that Trump was a person who knew how to play the media game & her endorsement of Trump while spoofed at SNL

bailed him out (to my disappointment at the time) at a time when Cruz had flanked him on the right

Ted Cruz had run circles around him on the Birther Issue but had very effectively turned what was a winning debate moment for Trump, (NY Values) into a negative. Cruz had managed to do what Perry, Bush, Paul and Graham could not, counter Trump effectively. It was so bad that Trump found himself booed by activists which is not something he is used to.

About a dozen supporters came to the bar for the stop, but several people walking by started pounding on the window when they noticed her. One said “I have no respect for you.” And someone sprayed some sort of substance into the bar from outside that had many in the tavern momentarily coughing.

That person is now likely hiding in a safe space after Trump took Michigan.

What does all this mean, just this:

Sarah Palin picked up the mantle of conservatism after the election of Barack Obama when everyone else was ready to give up.  She helped deliver two big red waves and now 8 years after the news media, the media culture and the establishment GOP began laughing at her nonstop  without grasping what she has been doing we have Donald Trump, who she endorsed in the White House, with a Republican house and a Republican senate and the prospect of her being the next Secretary of the Interior.

None of which the now celebrating GOP members got from the establishment.

So let me close by reminding my fellow conservatives  who are still enjoying the media’s distress and the sight of special snowflakes showing how valueless their $50,000 a year educations are as they melt to pieces over the thought of our newfound power, of something they might have forgotten.

Never forget that it is to Sarah Palin that we owe these victories
