Sarah Palin, Warrior Princess
Thanks to "The Messenger" I have been given an insight into the minds of that secretive and exclusive website, the Team that bats for Sarah Palin. They're very disappointed with the latest polls in which GOP political insiders place the team's muse waaaay behind a number of other Republican governors as having the brightest political future. Sarah polled only 5%.
The support for Sarah Palin is dwindling in Alaska as well. She's no longer the most popular governor in the country and the figures are quite far from over 90% approval John McCain said she had.
Let's see: the liberals don't like Sarah Palin, the Republicans don't like Sarah Palin, Alaskans don't like Sarah Palin, the basement dwelling bloggers don't like Sarah Palin and the MSM don't like Sarah Palin.
Who likes Sarah Palin? In the media: Rush Limbaugh, Fox News (opinions appear to be divided in their camp), some Christian publications and tabloids such as People magazine; in Alaska we have Eddie Burke and Bob & Mark. ADN is a bit schyzophrenic in their allegiance to the governor at the moment. Elsewhere, her support comes from anti-choice groups, the NRA, Christian zealots and men who are guided by a certain part of their anatomy. John Coale falls in the latter category, but he appears to have had ulterior motives: his heart beats faster for Hillary...
Do the fan sites have the millions of followers that would be needed to put Sarah in the White House?
The best the Team can offer is an image of a Warrior Princess, fighting alone against the whole cruel world. They make a comprehensive list of all her foes: "a state legislature that was intent on punishing her, Obama political operatives that have been waging a more insidious war, issuing repeated ethics complaints in order to slowly bleed and bankrupt her, the MSM provides only tabloid journalism and even prominent members of the Republican party have joined the Sarah Palin-bashing orgy, documented here in excruciating detail."
They announce that "the American public, at least those in the lower 48, are hearing faint rumblings from the great State of Alaska. There is the intermittent vox clamantus in deserto (voice calling from the wilderness). And behold, Sarah is alive, strong, defiant, and ready to stand and deliver. Sarah has been issuing regular press releases taking Barack Obama and his administration to task over domestic and cultural issues:
Abortion (Notre Dame Controversy), Missile defense, Special Olympics, Stimulus Package."
They forgot to mention how their Warrior Princess leapt in defense of the plastic beauty queen and their 1st amendment rights to speak out without being criticized by the media.
If their warrior princess is all alone in the wilderness, how is she a serious contender for the presidency in 2012?
President Obama must be shaking in his boots, unable to eat and sleep...
Sleep tight, Mr President. Oh, you don't know what I'm talking about? Sorry, I must have forgotten that you have more important things on your mind...
