Paradigm shift: Sarah Palin takes Texas  The juicy David vs Goliath part:

Establishment Republicans rally today to debunk Sarah Palin much as Letterman, Couric, Tina Fey and the vast info/entertainment culture did at the beginning. It is a measure of her success and the fear Grizzly Mama strikes in the heart of the timid. The Ted Cruz victory in the Texas Senate race brings substantive political change and Sarah Palin is behind the paradigm shift. It is, as The Washington Post called it, “a victory for the Tea Party.” Today, “the establishment” pushes further away from the main pulse of America and Sarah Palin holds the pulse.

….and, Sarah… if things don’t *ahem* work out between you and Todd in the future… I’m available.   Just sayin’.  *Swoon*

You mean 2008 wasn’t Palin’s fault?

Data Tech Guy makes a salient point about liberal conspicuous silence about Palin.  Other data refuting the MSM lie in regards to Sarah Palin have been posted here and here.

Stop the Palinsanity!

It did my heart some good to see another article addressing the blatant revision of the 2008 Presidential campaign.  Tony Lee over at Breitbart does a terrific job of reminding the willfully ignorant that Sarah Palin boosted -not crash- McCain’s campaign.

To this day, I’m astounded by the number of folks on the right who accept the willful ignorance proffered by our media.  Yes, some people on the right swallowed that whopper hook, line and sinker.  Don’t even get me started on the leftists who criticize Sarah Palin as not being ready to be V.P. while proffering Joe Biden as their choice.  Joe Biden? With each passing day of Biden sitting in the number two seat, I’m no longer sure that Forrest Gump is a fictional character.

Look, if you guys on the right are going to buy this load of bull, be advised that you are arguing against hard evidence that Palin boosted the McCain campaign.  You shouldn’t complain about liberals ignoring facts in regards to Sarah Palin when you’re doing the very same thing.

Common Ignorance in regards to Sarah Palin

Posted in 'Professional' Media, 2012, Democrat Memory Hole, Liberal Straw Men, Obama, Palin Rabies, Sarah Palin with tags , , , , on February 16, 2011 by b5blue

… as opposed to common knowledge.  One leftist straw man making the pretzel corridors of liberal logic is that it was Palin who sank McCain’s chances.   Baloney.

That’s revisionist history to make her appear unappealing.  Let’s take a ride back in history… shall we?   Rasmussen Reports one month before stock market crash:

The Sarah Surge in Black and White

It’s so much fun reading the newspapers these days. The Sarah surge continues to dominate all the political news, while the Palin-McCain — er, McCain-Palin — ticket is forging ahead in the polls.

But let’s be fair. Even though Sen. McCain is now riding Gov. Palin’s skirt tails, he was the one who made the brilliant decision to put her on the ticket. And the louder the left screams, the better Sarah seems to do. So much better that for the first time the Intrade pay-to-play prediction market — which long has had Barack Obama winning by 20 to 25 points in November — now shows a McCain lead. Unbelievable.

And look at all these headlines. The Washington Post has “Palin Energizing Women From All Walks of Life.” In particular, white women with children at home give Palin a favorable rating of 80 percent.

Then there’s this lead story in the Wall Street Journal: “Palin Lifts McCain’s Support.” A WSJ-NBC poll now has the presidential race even, and it’s the Palin effect that explains the shift.

One in four Hillary Clinton voters now says the Palin pick makes them more likely to vote for McCain. And traditional Republican states like Georgia, Montana, North Carolina and Alaska — which Obama thought he’d fight for — are now safely back in the McCain camp.

A Bloomberg news article is titled, “McCain Poll Surge, Fundraising Give Democrats Election Jitters.” It talks about how Democrats now worry they’ll lose the election. Rep. Arthur Davis, the Alabama Democrat who was Obama’s Harvard Law classmate, says the GOP just had its best week in four years.

And Obama & Co. are completely flummoxed as to what to do about the Palin phenomenon. The normally unflappable Sen. Obama actually said, “You can put lipstick on a pig, but it’s still a pig.” Whew. That one will add several points to the McCain-Palin column. “Holy Sow!” reads the New York Post headline, hammering home the mistake.

Even Camille Paglia, a strong Obama supporter, is waxing rhapsodic over Sarah Palin. Paglia calls her “a new style of muscular American feminism”; a “brash ambassador from America’s pioneer past”; an “optimistic pragmatist like Ronald Reagan.” Following Palin’s GOP convention speech, I compared the governor to a Western pioneer version of Margaret Thatcher. I’m glad to see Paglia pick up on that.

A story by Sen. Jim DeMint, R-S.C., in The Wall Street Journal is titled, “Yes, Palin Did Stop that Bridge.” The senator says Palin may once have supported the infamous Bridge to Nowhere, but she then killed it.

And let’s not get into the flip-flop argument. Both Obama and McCain have flip-flopped this year. And anyway, who cares if you flip-flop if you land in the right place? DeMint notes that Palin cut nearly 10 percent of Alaska’s budget. And he should have reminded folks that Obama voted for the pork-barrel farm bill — chock full of earmarks and waste — and then voted again to overturn President Bush’s veto of the bill.

A USA Today headline says “Palin Did Not Ban Books in Wasilla as Mayor.” After interviewing a bunch of local folks, the author simply could not confirm the charge made by left-wing bloggers.

In “The Hunt for Sarah October,” the Wall Street Journal’s John Fund writes about a 30-lawyer S.W.A.T. team of Obama Democrats descending on Alaska in search of dirt related to “Palin’s troopergate.” They found nothing that hasn’t already aired about Palin’s alcoholic ex-brother-in-law who Tasered his stepson.

Over in the Journal’s Political Diary, Steve Moore says GOP House members back from vacation are actually talking about picking up seats in November, with a recent USA Today poll putting GOP members up four points on the question: Who do you support, the Republican or the Democrat for Congress in your district?

Even the financial pages are looking better. Oil is about to drop under $100 a barrel. Gold is plunging. And the greenback continues to rally in true King Dollar fashion. Is there a Sarah Palin effect here, too?

On the campaign trail, Palin says, “We’re going to drill now to make this nation energy independent.” And she adds that she’s “ready to help John McCain bring tax relief to all Americans.” That’s the disciplined Sarah on message. She signaled this in St. Paul when she said the difference between a hockey mom and a pit bull is lipstick. Obama picked up on the dark side of that metaphor. But Palin’s really saying: Don’t tread on me. Don’t try to intimidate me. I am a strong, tough mom who is determined to succeed in politics .

That’s just what she’s doing.

They want to portray Sarah Palin as being a drag upon McCain.  Nothing could be further from the truth.  It was the financial meltdown that sunk McCain, courtesy of State of the Union:

 

McCain’s floor hovers around forty percent, accounting for the divergence at the end, but regardless, the correlation between the two data sets is a robust 0.77.

As Pollster’s Steve Lombardo says, “The economic situation has virtually ended John McCain’s presidential aspirations and no amount of tactical maneuvering in the final 29 days is likely to change that equation.”

It’s a leftist lie.

Liberalism as the enemy of Freedom of Speech

Don’t take my title at its word, look at their actions:

Local officials in trying to intimidate and silence Tuscon Tea Party

“Personal Attacks” Cause Colorado Group To Cancel Palin Speech

All in the same news cycle.  Is it coincidental?  Hell no.  Liberals are far more likely to use violence and intimidation.  We should expect this but we should craft a dynamic path forward because they’re counting on us to be cowed.  Always have your video on your smart phone point-and-click ready during one of these events.

We outnumber them by a large margin and we have our rights which are every bit as important as the rights afforded liberals.   We need to be forthright and continue our path and allow the left to be exposed for what it is: the utter rot of society.

Tea Party Conference in Charlotte?

Posted in 'Professional' Media, 2012, General Politics, Obama, Sarah Palin with tags , , , on February 2, 2011 by b5blue

The Democrats have chosen Charlotte, North Carolina for their September 3, 2012 Convention.

As a side note: they picked a terrific city.  Charlotte is one of my very faves in my business travels.  Have a couple of good friends there and the southern hospitality is strong within North Carolina.

Back to blogging.

I think the Tea Party ought to consider having a parallel conference/convention in Charlotte during the same time.  Run it as an antithesis to the violent leftist protests at Republican Conventions that we have to endure.  Hell, they even set up specific links so that their protesters could get up to the minute updates:

http://www.protestrnc2008.org (link doesn’t work)You can get text message updates and alerts on your cell phone about protesting the RNC! From your cell phone send a text message to the phone number 40404 with the message follow…

The Conference wouldn’t have to be a big affair other than to get a Palin, Beck or Bachmann MSM lightning rod driven into the Charlotte soil.  The MSM will give the Tea Party the free publicity and draw attention away from the Democrats at the same time.   Not sure if Obama will have learned to keep his lip zipped in regards to the Tea Party at that juncture in 2012… but if not… publicity gold.

Just a thought.

So, Dana, how’s the Palinabstinence goin’ for ya?

Posted in 'Professional' Media, Palin Rabies, Sarah Palin with tags , on February 2, 2011 by b5blue

Just curious how your Palin boycott and vow of Sarah abstinence was going?  Oh really?  Only 9 hours?  Perhaps you can seek a Palin patch or something like that…. at least get an oral sponge or something to collect the unsightly froth.  It’s gross and it doesn’t go with your international orange wardrobe.

Oh, sorry about that ‘free’ Obamacare, too.  Uh, not really.
