One of the Things I Love About Sarah

Here's something new I'm trying out: a story told in screenshots.

As people who know me know, the main villain I choose to fight in life is the bully. I really dislike bullies and I celebrate people who stand up to them. I think this is one of the major attractions Sarah Palin has for me.

One of the worst kinds of bullies is the kind who stands behind a barrier so his victim can't fight back. An Internet troll using a pseudonym is this kind of bully, for example. A public performer can be another kind. This is where Bill Maher comes in.

Here's the gist of the story: Bill Maher presented a show in Las Vegas where he called Trig Palin a retard. A conservative person named Ron Futrell went to the show probably to heckle Maher. He has a special needs child, so Maher's crack about Trig got him angry. He put up a webpage about it. Some news companies picked it up, then Sarah made some in-your-face tweets and an invitation.

Enjoy the show.

From Breitbart:

From Ron Futrell's website (Futrell speaking):

From TheBlaze:

Just to reinforce the text of Sarah's tweets:

Tweet 1:

Hey bully, on behalf of all kids whom you hatefully mock in order to make yourself feel big, I hope one flattens your lily white wimpy a#*

Tweet 2:

I’m in your neck of the woods this weekend, little Bill. Care to meet so I can tell you how I really feel?


Gotta love her.

By the way, Sarah is going to be back on at Fox:

Sarah Palin rejoining Fox News as contributor
Catalina Camia
USA TODAY
June 13, 2013

From the article:

Former GOP vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin is rejoining Fox News as a contributor, months after she and the network parted ways.

Fox News Chairman and CEO Roger Ailes said Palin, a former Alaska governor, will return on air Monday morning during the Fox & Friends program. She will also contribute to the Fox Business Network.

"I have great confidence in her and am pleased that she will once again add her commentary to our programming," Ailes said in a story posted on the Fox News website. "I hope she continues to speak her mind."

Sarah just came out as a libertarian in front of a bunch of religious conservatives at the Faith & Freedom Coalition 2013.

The people reporting on this are highlighting her phrase, "I say until we know what we’re doing, until we have a commander in chief who knows what he’s doing, well, let these radical Islamic countries who aren't even respecting basic human rights, where both sides are slaughtering each other as they scream over an arbitrary red line, 'Allahu Akbar,' I say until we have someone who knows what they're doing, I say let Allah sort it out."

They like that, "Let Allah sort it out," part.

But the real news for me is Sarah's explicit mention of libertarian values as the correct path to go on, at least as far as government is concerned.

I don't know about others, but I'm sensing a rumble in Sarah's resurgence. I believe this will eventually burst open into widespread support for her from the strangest bedfellows. Let's see if I am right...

The archetype I see in Sarah is a cross between Joan of Arc and Calamity Jane.

I like that image...

For example, at the Faith and Freedom Coalition in Washington DC, she state that:

"Our government spied on every single one of your phone calls but couldn't find two pot-smoking deadbeat Bostonians with a hotline to terrorist central in Chechnya. Really? ... And it's built an apparatus to sneak into all of the good guys' communications but ... whoopsi-daisy ... It missed the Fort Hood murderer of our own troops despite this Islamic terrorist declaring his ideology in numerous army counseling sessions and on his own business cards. But, whoops, no red flags there. Really?"

It astounds me what folks are willing to swallow these days to allow O'biwan to continue his "transformation" of the Republic.

Apparently you have first hand knowledge of Jean's body...are you sure you are not Lazarus Long?

I like Palin. She has balls when most of her colleagues appear to be eunuchs. That, in itself, is respectable. She has convictions and she is ready to stand by them.

Correct.

More importantly, she has integrity.

"There is nothing like a sight of an amputated spirit, there is no prosthetic for that."

Later in the speech, he creates a great line...

"Be careful what kind of leaders you're producing here. ... He won't sell anybody out to buy his future. And that my friends is called integrity... thats called courage now that's the stuff that leaders should be made of!"

You would be well served to see it. His perception of women is worth it alone. The Tango scene is incredibly erotic:

At a certain level, he fucks her on the dance floor.

Now I'm interested!

Also, I can't view the video you posted...it's "currently unavailable."

Here is what I consider to be an important video from Sarah:

http://youtu.be/IUR8K0fSz_Q

The media is highlighting her comment about Snowden not being the problem, but instead the government, and the USA being an Orwellian government for rewarding IRS agents with bonuses in the face of their misbehavior, but the real meat for me is the following.

Sarah came out clearly for abolishing the IRS, instituting a flat tax, and, in her comments about drones, gave total support to Rand Paul's filibuster. She said he was vindicated. This last was most important to me (as a Sarah fan) because she also criticized those who mocked Rand Paul at the time.

And who was that? John McCain, that's who. He called Rand Paul a wacko bird back then. This indicates that Sarah is shedding her sense of obligation to McCain for projecting her on the international stage and is going in the direction of small-government libertarianism. She is openly clashing with McCain's policies. (Listen to the video with this in mind and you see it clearly.)

That's a really good thing and should make her less of a target to the archetype story-wars. Her real archetype will start emerging in the mainstream. People will be free to agree or disagree, but at least those who disagree will be judging who she really is rather than a made-up image drawn from Saturday Night Live.

Rand once commented (in "Conservatism: An Obituary" from Capitalism: The Unknown Ideal):

When men share the same basic premise, it is the most consistent ones who win.


Sarah's career of trying to make peace with McCain's Progressivism while being a small-government libertarian in her heart is the reason I submit that she became so vulnerable to being eviscerated by the Soros-fed mainstream media. Now she is setting herself free of the inconsistency.

Let''s see how the principle plays out. I believe it will result in increasing acceptance of Sarah--not with the liberal media, but with the moderates.

Maybe even a third party if the Republicans keep supporting big government, but saying they are not...

She clearly has a backbone, and I'm glad she's putting it to good use.

Most Liberals (and perhaps some Conservatives) will do their best to malign her, but (like you said) it will be all the harder (to malign her) with her break from McCain. Unfortunately, Conservatives are all too easy to malign given their stances (or what is perceived to be their stances) to certain social issues. Strawmen will still be erected; it may just be a little harder to do so.

I'm hoping for the best.

The left has it right about how to fight Sarah.

It's not with facts.

It's with story.

Now they've written a derogatory novel about her as president. They totally misconstrued her views, but it's only fiction, right?

Sarah is a Christian, that's true, but she does not want to "implement" a Christian nation on America as given in the novel. She is a lot closer to small-government libertarian.

Novel imagines Sarah Palin presidency
By PATRICK GAVIN
7/3/13
Politico

From the article:

The McCain/Palin ticket lost in 2008, right? Fiction can change that.

”Christian Nation” is a new novel from lawyer Fred Rich that wonders what would happen if the Republican ticket won in 2008. But Rich goes even further than that, plotting a would-be Palin presidency after McCain passes away in the novel.

And although it’s fiction, Rich is dead serious about what a Palin presidency would mean for the country. As the title suggest, Rich is concerned about how religious extremists on the right could upend society.

“If somebody like Sarah Palin, who holds so firmly to this conviction that America is and should be a Christian nation, what would happen if she actually had the power to implement it?” Rich says his book “paints a picture of what that path would look like.”

“How could the federal courts, which are the only defense against all the nonsense you see out of the state legislatures, how could the federal court system be neutralized? What legislative strategies could the Christian right pursue were they in control of the Congress? It shows that it’s not impossible or unthinkable for them to actually be able to implement that agenda.”


The left is scared, but i don't think it's scared of Christianity. It wants big-government power and Sarah has the balls to not only reduce the size of government, she would do it in a way that the country would flourish big-time.

The left know what's at stake and it knows if it loses the story war with Sarah, it will lose the election. So out come the stories. This novel will not be the only story, either. There already has been an HBO movie. They will keep saying Sarah is irrelevant, finished, yada yada yada, but they will write stories about her.

How's this one for desperation?

Sarah Palin May Be Your 'Hunger Games' President
by ESTHER ZUCKERMAN
JUN 27, 2013
Atlantic Wire

From the article:

Okay, well, Sarah Palin herself won't be playing the pivotal role of President Alma Coin in the third (and, yes, fourth) Hunger Games films, but the woman who played her to so much acclaim, Julianne Moore, just might—and in full-on Palin fashion.

Deadline's Mike Fleming Jr. reports that Lionsgate and director Francis Lawrence are honing in on Moore to play Coin, the duplicitous leader of Panem's rebellion and president of the mysterious District 13. It's pretty much perfect casting. Moore, as we learned from her Emmy-winning performance as Palin in HBO's Game Change, is great at brining out the best in the sleazier elements from politicians, and Coin is definitely sleazy, using heroine Katniss for her own ulterior motives. The character—minor spoiler alert—is ultimately responsible for one of the most tragic and surprising deaths in the book.

I guess we'll be seeing Tina Fey some more eventually, too.

Sarah has that special something that makes her larger than life in the public eye. The left knows it. That's why they are busy busy busy writing all those derogatory stories. That's the only way to attack that image. Her supporters need to learn from them. If only they would learn this enough to write good stories and good mythology about her.

Here's an example. If the Hunger Games casting thing goes through and the left starts yawping it up about Sarah the corrupt politician, her supporters could counter presenting images of her closer to Katniss Everdeen, the heroine. Not a direct copy, but visually remembering her. Here is a press kit image of Katniss to get a gist of what I mean.

Katniss_Everdeen.jpg

Or maybe something like this:

katniss_everdeen_by_martadewinter-d5b7da

The public imagination will do the rest.

Come on people, this is not that hard.

Here are a few images that are already out there, but, in my opinion, this kind of thing needs to be pushed and a great story heavy on archetypes attached to it.

Sarah brandishing her fire arm. I can see a lot of overage broke dick patriots beholding this and getting some wood for the first time in 20 years.

Soft-core patriotic porn. Good stuff!

It looks like Sarah's breach with McCain is almost complete:

Sarah Palin: "I Was Not Allowed" To Tell The Truth About Obama In 2008 (July, 26 2013)

Good.

Now maybe she will be unencumbered in her small government, low tax, individual freedom message--especially in not letting the weasels use her message to hide government expansion.

I think from now on she's going to call it as she sees it.

Well, well, Sarah was right again...

Public awareness of the board shot up last year when Palin called it a “death panel,” connecting the IPAB to her previous attacks on a proposal to encourage end-of-life planning in the Affordable Care Act.

“Though I was called a liar for calling it like it is, many of these accusers finally saw that ObamaCare did in fact create a panel of faceless bureaucrats who have the power to make life and death decisions about healthcare funding,” Palin wrote on Facebook.

This claim experienced a revival on the right after Dean published his op-ed, which argued that the board would ultimately ration care for Medicare patients.

“The IPAB will be able to stop certain treatments its members do not favor by simply setting rates to levels where no doctor or hospital will perform them,” Dean wrote in The Wall Street Journal.

“Getting rid of the IPAB is something Democrats and Republicans ought to agree on.”

The piece quickly went viral, prompting conservative bloggers and Fox News hosts to cheer: “Dean confirms that Sarah Palin was right!”
