This is how the Left tries to win elections:
Align your stories with the media in an effort to completely tear down and destroy a candidate. In Sarah Palin’s case its all engines go — truth and children be damned!
Good Lord it must suck to be a Lefty….what else explains the rabid, nasty, vile, and baseless wads of crap that spew from the mouths of TV talking heads at CNN, ABC, NBC or from the keyboards of the The Daily Kos and Democratic Underground?
(Actually, American Thinker takes a good shot at answering that question….it is spot-on.)
It’s all in a days work to show the complete lack of respect for a candidate’s family all in the name of tearing down the candidate so the lesser-qualified candidate can win.
I think and I hope that this effort by the media and the Democrats will backfire on them on November 4!
The editors of National Review have it right:
It is obvious what the media and Democrats are up to here. They want to define Sarah Palin as a failure before she even has a chance to succeed. Hence the speculation that McCain will dump her from the ticket. How absurd. All we know about Palin’s performance as a candidate so far is that she gave polished performances at her unveiling in Ohio and at a rally the next day in Pennsylvania. The supposed embarrassments — about her alleged membership in the fringe Alaskan Independence Party and her woefully incomplete vetting — are concoctions of a media stumbling over itself to prove a conclusion it has already reached.
So far, it is the press that has embarrassed itself, not the governor from Alaska.
They also make great points about other DEMOCRAT children that were considered completely hands-off by the media….and it was honored, by the other party, by the way!
When Al Gore’s son was arrested on narcotics and speeding charges in 2007, moreover, the national press was a model of sympathetic restraint. The muted coverage was devoid of calls for a national “teaching moment” on drug abuse or responsible driving. The message was plain and correct: No news here, move along.
I think the explanation for such a quick reaction and such rabid attacks on Palin and her family shows that the Left knows she is a real threat to their success and brings a whole new wave of energy to the Republican ticket and party now and in the future!
