Hillary Clinton Reincarnated: Gov. Sarah Palin

So I guess for all of those PUMA women and other bitter Hillary Clinton supporters, tonight they found a new leader in Gov. Sarah Palin.

But before I get to Palin, let me just say that I don’t know what channel you were watching the speech on—that is if you were watching it at all—but I was watching CNN. And in doing so, there were a few things that I noticed.

First, gone are the over abundance of Black commentators the week of the Democratic National Convention.

Second, was it just me or was the audience overwhelmingly white. I mean there were a few Blacks sprinkled in here and there that I gather CNN’s camera operators where trying to highlight as best they could whenever they spotted one—but overall, I’d have to say that the GOP is still the GOWP and that was clear and apparent tonight.

Third, can we just say it’s official now that Cowboy Troy has officially crossed over.

Now onto Sarah Palin, who by all accounts has more energy and tage presence than Sen. John McCain—oh, and she can lift her arms higher when she waves than he can too.

Matthew Scully, Palin’s speechwriter, used her to send a message to the Obama campaign that McCain hasn’t been able to deliver—at least not with the delivery that Palin gave tonight. While I don’t agree with her politics, she’s definitely a better speaker than her counterpart and kept my attention in a way that no one in her Party has been able to do thus far.

However, all of the Obama attacking was a bit tired and didn’t do much except for put her in the same ranks as Hillary Clinton who was also good at delivering smart and witty pre-written attacks against her opponents.

Which is precisely what the McCain camp wants—to persuade those bitter Hillary Clinton supporters to find hope in Sarah Palin as their new leader.

She’s female, she’s white, she’s a mom, and she can talk shit with the best of em’.

“We tend to prefer candidates who don’t talk about us one way in Scranton and another way in San Francisco,” Palin said tonight.

Well, I prefer candidates that don’t try to push their ideologies on the rest of country but then change the rules for their family—i.e. Palin’s 17-year-old pregnant and unwed daughter and the Party of Moral Righteousness.

“When the stadium lights go out, and those Styrofoam Greek columns are hauled back to some studio lot, what exactly is our opponent’s plan? What does he actually seek to accomplish, after he’s done turning back the waters and healing the planet?”

Sounds like someone has been listening to Rush Limbaugh’s ‘Messiah rhetoric.’

If you’re a Republican—Palin hit a homerun—no better yet—the self-titled hockey mom scored a goal tonight. If you’re on the fence, hopefully Palin’s speech and those before you was just the push you need to be pushed over to the party of lesser evil—the Democratic Party.

On a good note—at least Palin’s daughter—Piper, the youngest, left her tiara at home tonight.

Speaking of Piper, now that’s the debate I’d like to see go down…Piper vs. Sasha. My money is on Sasha.

The Court of Public Opinion

  • Ah…piper vs. sasha…that’d just be cruel to them both.

  • Nyah M.

    I feel that Palin’s speech was good. I will give it to her that she gave the speech that energized Republicans.

    But her logic is flawed and when the debates come, she will crumble quickly.

    But this morning I am going to go into my prayer mode to ensure it will happen.

    I think that Sarah Palin did an excellent job delivering her speech, however, that is all she did was deliver her speech.

    Between her not so veiled insults at Sen. Obama, and her recollection of what she’s done in the past, she spoke nothing of what she plans on doing in the future.

    We heard nothing about her being a ‘maverick’ in the future, or how she plans on using her ‘reformer’ powers. To me her speech was comparable to a sizzler patty…….ground chuck wrapped in steak…..from the outside it looks like steak but when you cut into it you see it’s only an imitation of the real thing. Guess what I don’t need a friend in the White House I need an advocate!!!!

    Speaking of which when she says you have a friend in the White House, does that mean she’s going to invite me over for some of her homemade PTA cookies???? Can I put her down on the carpool list???? That’s exactly what it sounded like she was saying in her speech! Thanks but no thanks I have enough friends! We need someone who is going to get things done not play the ‘Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants club!’

    I don’t care about who has the best one liners or insults I care about who is going to look out for the American people! According to Romney it won’t be the Republicans because….we need less government! Romney basically said that those Americans who are desperately in need of health care, new job opportunities, and the security of knowing that they will not lose their home are pretty much ON THEIR OWN! Pretty much re-iterating from the horses mouth what Obama said, “oh you’re losing your home, and you have no health care….too bad you’re on your own!!!”

    Tonight for the millionth time told me that I made, and am making the right choice supporting Obama/Biden!

    100% OBAMA/BIDEN 2008 All the WAY!!!!!

  • chris

    Another thing Jas. Give some credit where it’s do. This evil woman is NO HILLARY CLINTON!

  • boboso

    Needlessly cruel to make fun of McCain’s torture-derived physical limitaions (“and she can lift her arms higher when she waves than he can too”). If he were your granddad or your dad, you’d be pissed at such a comment, and you’d be right. Grow up already.

  • do not be mad at hillary because palin’s speech writers slew obama!…

    shame to slander hc so herein…why???????
    she has NOTHING in common with hc

    more asap….

    I am so sick and tired of hearing Obama folks trash this mother and woman. They are going to get a rude awakening from suburban working moms, hockey/soccer moms, rural areas and blue collar all around. I was a Hillary supporter and now a Palin supporter. The Dems, Palosi and Dean missed the boat entirely. Just because you nominate a black man does not equate to being qualified to be president. Hillary was by far the most qualified candidate. Since they trashed her and used the worse tactics ever — claiming not to trash her to her face while coaching their supporters to trash her and call them racist behind their back was truly ugly!!! (Obama played the race card – Not Clinton). As Palin so well noted in her speech “We tend to prefer candidates who don’t talk about us one way in Scranton and another way in San Francisco.” Namely trashing rural people for believing in guns and religion will blow up in their face!!!. I can’t wait to watch the Deaniacs and Obama freaks go down — Big time…

    This woman is no Hillary Clinton!

    “”Hillary Clinton just released this statement: “The two party conventions showcased vastly different directions for our country. Sen. Obama and Sen. Biden offered the new ideas and positive Change America needs and deserves after eight years of Failed Republican leadership. Sen. McCain and Gov. Palin do not.”

    “After listening to all the speeches this week, I heard nothing that suggests the Republicans are ready to fix the economy for middle-class families, provide quality affordable health care for all Americans, guarantee equal pay for equal work for women, restore our nation’s leadership in a complex world or tackle the myriad of challenges our country faces.
    So, to slightly amend my comments from Denver:

    I”ll be fighting to elect Senator Obama Monday in Florida”

    More & more comes out about Palin & her lies every day. It’s only a matter of time before everyone knows how horrible she is. DO THE WORK PEOPLE… there are plenty of search engines out there for you to find out all the horrible things she has done & stands for. You can’t go by thoes TV interviews, that just ask these “soft” questions + don’t pressure her for solid answers! She is hiding behind PRE-SCRIPTED speeches and a TELEPROMPTER. Alaska’s newspapers are full of truthful stories. I suggest, going online and goodle Anchorage News. You will be amazed.

    I believe in Hillary & I believe that she is planning her attack on Palin. There is NO WAY that she wants to lose her female voter to Palin! She is a solid democrat & I believe she wants what is best for the country & knows it’s NOT Palin. She know’s McCain could bite it any day & this horrible, ignorant, uncultured, & completely unqualified “Hockey Mom form Alaska” could be the president & we would all be screwed inc. her & her family. Palin is everyting that Cliton has faught against.

    If anyone votes for her because they think she’s “hot” should be medicated!! Oh, & she looks cross-eyed & maybe you are too!

    Please remember Hillary (who I adore) was a wife of a lawyer in a prestigious law firm, governor, and a president… Then she BUMPED her way into the New York senate.

    Sarah (who I adore even more) worked her way from ground up in a more traditional path to her current office.

    Please look pass the rhetoric and piazazz of any candidate and do some political fact checking (factcheck.org).
