Why The Hate?

This is from Laura Ingraham…..

Why do they hate her? What is it about Sarah that is driving left-wing elites to say the most idiotic and bizarre things? Since her explosive arrival onto the political scene, Palin has endured far more than the customary and expected vetting and scrutiny.

Obama underlings and their dinosaur media apparatchiks have dug through her garbage, rifled through her dirty laundry, and interviewed every friend, foe, and caribou in Alaska. She has been (falsely) branded a book-burner, a religious zealot, “anti-women,” and “anti-science.”

Today’s Washington Post claims that Gov. Palin falsely equated Saddam Hussein with the 9/11 hijackers at the ceremony yesterday seeing Alaska troops off to Iraq. In reality she said they’d soon be taking on forces aligned with those who hit us on 9/11 – an obviously true statement. Al Qaeda in Iraq is part of Al Qaeda, and it’s been a coon’s age since Saddam Hussein was fighting this war.

Then came Charlie…er…I mean Charles Gibson. The ABC News star tried to jettison his nice-guy image in the first interview with Palin and ended up coming off like a pedantic snob. Aside from tripping up on the Bush Doctrine (she explained it as his general worldview, as opposed to the doctrine of preemptive military action), she acquitted herself well.
Sorry, Charlie.

In the past two-weeks, Obama-friendly columnists and commentators have questioned Palin’s fitness as a mother. CNN, NBC and the other left-wing media outlets have expended more man-hours looking into Palin’s faith than they did in two years looking into Barack Obama’s. My personal favorite, though, is actor Matt “Bagger Vance” Damon’s saying that the mere possibility of Vice President Palin was like a “bad Disney movie.”

The vitriol is so over-the-top that it is having a boomerang effect. As the attacks over the last two weeks have intensified, the McCain/Palin poll numbers have shot up. Today’s Gallup numbers show for the first time in years Republicans winning a generic congressional ballot among likely voters. Elites from Los Angeles to Manhattan are sensing that their chance at a political utopia may be slipping away.

Sarah Palin’s entire existence is a refutation of everything the left holds sacrosanct. They champion abortion rights, she stands for life, personally and politically. They think the redistribution of income is indispensable to achieving “economic justice.” She sees it as their means to grow government and penalize prosperity. They look at America and see a collection of oppressed minorities. She sees America as the land of opportunity. They believe we need to do more to court “world opinion.”
She’s not embarrassed over having little use for Europe.

It is not enough for them to beat Sarah Palin, they must destroy her.

It’s a long way ’til November 4th, but I’m betting on the gal with the double-barreled shotgun and camouflage ski jacket.

    Well, I think the dislike comes from her being so easy to jump on the “nuke the b@$tard$” bandwagon. She was ready to go to war with RUSSIA! She’d make a good replacement for Dick Cheney, ha, ha!

    Sheesh. The point being these right wingers sure do like to use force and military might to kill things. The killing wolves from a helicopter thing shudda been a clue.

    It’s fine to disagree with her (you have the right to be wrong!), but why all the hate? I thought liberals were supposed to be loving and tolerant?

    Actually, I hope you liberals keep it up. It is sending more and more working class women over to McCain/Palin!

    I understand that you won’t agree, but it doesn’t seem that unusual to me. The wacky speculation about Palin from the Kosites is about on the same par as the wacky stuff the right-wingers have been speculating about Obama. The fact that for a moment I thought “It’s crazy, but I wonder if she really did pretend to have her kid’s baby?” helps me understand how some folks can believe the stuff they do about Obama.

  4. Politics & Culture on

    I understand what you’re saying Jonathan. I certainly wouldn’t expect any better from the Daily Kos and other leftist bloggers. But it’s not only coming from them. Liberal feminists are very threatened by Governor Palin (just as civil rights activists are threatened by conservative minorities). Did you read Camille Paglia’s column about Gov. Palin?

    And to a greater degree, the Democratic party is threatened. If the GOP could get just 20 percent of the black vote and a little more of the female vote, the Dems would not be able to win a national election.

    BTW: I’ve always found it interesting that Elrod will criticize Ann Coulter without mercy, but will quote and even link to the Daily Kos.

    Can you say hypocrite?

    I think the difference Jonathan, is that when the far right “attacks” it is just that. The far right. When the left attacks, it’s ALL the left including 95% of the main stream media. The right doesn’t have the media to help them. When Ann Coulter says something radical, it is all over the media. When the Huffington post does, you here it on Rush but that is it. No ABC, CBS, NBC.
