You know, something occurred to me today … We all know Barack Obama was/is a complete media invention. And for the last two years the media has tried its damnedest to invent a Sarah Palin the American people would loathe. Funny, I don’t think that’s working out too well for the MSM this time. Doesn’t help their first invention, Obama, is proving to be an empty paper mache character.
Now comes Palin’s reality TV program, “Sarah Palin’s Alaska“, and her unapologetic lifestyle in the nation’s last best wilderness. Yes, the woman fishes, hunts and kills to eat (something our own intransigent Humberto can respect and appreciate). However, seems the left just is so verklempt over Palin’s graphic displays of clubbing fish and shooting caribou they can’t seem to roll out of their morning beds under their usual high-maintenance degree of vitriol and vile venom for the world not created in their image(s). Manhattan Ivory Tower Midge continually scowls over “Caribou Barbie” … The disdainful New York Times columnist probably thinks anything done to an animal is just plain wrong … outside of sacrificing its unborn eggs for a glob of caviar on the top of an onion cracker or it’s liver for a wedge of stale toast … Oh yes! Or it’s hide for that fab pair of 4.5 inch strappy red stilettos with matching $1500 Coach bag to wear while munching on said ovum and detoxifying organs of animals, dumping down apple martinis and griping about Sarah Palin with other intestionally redacted, metro-cranial, brow-beaters. I guess it doesn’t help Manhattan Midge that “Caribou Barbie” looks better in those red stilettos than she does, and can smile while wearing them. Oh, and you’d NEVER catch Sarah Palin dressed in this.
I’m thinking all these mouthy-folk are just avoiding writing substantial words about this overreaching government, the creeping evil of a culture/religion/ideology that will come for them first, or the ironic display of Obama’s reaching back for “Sputnik” to make a point about American innovation the other day, while in less than two years knocking our own 21st century space program back to said era while ‘transforming’ it into some Muslim outreach program. They also see Sarah Palin as a threat. No … Not because she’s “stupid”. Because she’s wise about things they haven’t a clue about. And because they are outnumbered by like-minded people … Us. They want the unwashed bourgeois envious and breathless over their shallow eliteness.
What’s worse for society? People throughout the world who enjoy the sport of hunting animals and have since the beginning of time. Or people who enjoy, say, years-long Hollywood binges on the same illegal drugs that fund the same murderers who spread their poison on to our children’s playgrounds and schools? Has Sorkin ever lashed out so viciously at illegal drug abusers? I’m gonna go out on a Google-less limb and say no.
I tend to look at people as “Is that someone I’d want in a foxhole beside me?” The way I see it, I’d have to say “No” to those people who are consumed with their self-appointment as “Official Sarah Palin Bashers” … And “Yes” to Sarah Palin. After two years of this in the world media, and now watching Palin’s reality TV show (the left is labeling ‘snuff’), which do you think the observant North Koreans think is a more worthy adversary?
