Sarah The Media Slayer

Use truth as your anvil, nonviolence as your hammer and anything that does not stand the test when it is brought to the anvil of truth and hammered with nonviolence, reject it. - Glenn Beck (j/k, it was really Mahatma Ghandi)

In February 2009, I was scratching my head as I looked at all the negative articles and smears about Sarah Palin that I was seeing online and hearing in the mainstream media. I mean, she lost the election and was now quietly back home in Alaska doing that governor thing that she was familiar with before being plucked out of Alaska for a 57 day whirlwind tour by John McCain. Why all the bashing? The campaign was over. She lost. Then why did the left think they had to keep convincing us that she was no good even after it was over?

Because they didn't want you to know that she was coming back. The left knew the day after John McCain gave his concession speech that they had inadvertently created a monster. The constant smearing and lying about Palin during the 2008 presidential campaign was the catalyst for the explosion that you see today online. Palinistas everywhere!

And those Palinistas were ready to quietly recover, allow Palin time to get re-elected governor in 2010 and be ready in 2011 to jump on the bandwagon again and get our beloved Sarah into the White House.

The liberals knew it too.

They knew that if they did not destroy Sarah Palin that she was coming back for them. You don't lie about a woman with a moose gun and expect to not be looking down its barrel at some point. In their panic, they kept the DNC sanctioned Alaska blogger group together and made sure that Arianna Huffington and Keith Olbermann would be kept in the loop.

They filed or cheerled 25 frivolous ethics complaints against Sarah Palin. They worked with the anti-Palin forces to create a negative caricature of Sarah Palin which still affects her poll numbers today. I can't tell you how many times I've discussed Sarah Palin with people and some of  them still talk about how dumb she is because she said she can see Russia from her house. "It's because the organized smear campaign against her has put out so many lies about her that people like you believe them," this blogger told a friend who has a severe case of Palin Derangement Syndrome.

We Palinistas formed support groups and kept pumping out the positive word about Sarah Palin through websites like Team Sarah, Conservatives4Palin, Texas4Sarah Palin and our personal blogs where we all contributed great quotes to the Sarah Palin movement. Moreso, we now have people in strategic places like the Weekly Standard, The American Thinker and on Fox News. And Palin herself has taken control of the anti-smear campaign by appearing on Fox News and by writing Facebook notes.

But it always wasn't that way. In the early days, we were meeting each other on comment boards before we even established our blogs. It used to work like this: we see negative things about Palin and we flood the comment boards with positive things or we attack those negative comments. It now works like this: Sarah Palin does something, someone writes a negative article about, we write a rebuttal and slam! Everyone in the blogosphere knows to expect a hit if they write a negative piece on Palin that is unfair or based on liberal bias now.

For example, conservative blogger Karen Allen did the usual thing we Palinistas have become good at doing. She unsheathed her sword and took on media lies and myths about Palin's appearances over the last several days.

What's amazing is that Sarah Palin herself became one of us and unsheathed her own sword and went on her Facebook page to do the exact same thing that Karen Allen did! It is so motivating to have a leader that is so in touch with her followers that she understands our strategy to help her and even joins us in implementing that strategy! After months of swarming to comment boards to shout down the liberal loons, astroturfers and Mobies, after months of slamming the left wing bloggers and pundits on our sites and after months of slamming the mainstream media, we have someone to handle our light work for us now: Sarah Palin.

Her Facebook note Research is your friend, News Media. Try it sometime would have made such a great Unsheathed post!

I tease of course about the light work. But the reality is that the liberals are creating their own monster. Sarah Palin could easily hire a staff and keep up with current issues of the day on her own without any prodding. But prod they do and now she's become a total expert on every subject that she discusses as a result. I guess they shot themselves in the foot because they ruined the "she's dumb and has no substance" meme.

I told people in 2008 and I will say it again. If you think she's big now, wait until 2012. She will be a behemoth by then.

The McCain campaign kept her bottled up - she went rogue.

The media slammed her for her Katie Couric appearance - she helped John Ziegler tell the truth in his Media Malpractice documentary.

She went back to govern Alaska quietly and the libs kept her in the spotlight by making up stories that she was more interested in becoming president than governing Alaska. During the few times she left the state to attend state business, the libs went berzerk because the media would cover her and everyone on our side would report on everything she did. Her response? She went to Evansville Indiana and thumbed her nose at them.

The liberals wanted to drive her out of office - so she resigned and became a national political figure. Oops that one backfired didn't it, libs? The same people who forced her out are the ones who now complain about her "quitting." My sides are hurting from laughing because you'd think they'd be happy they got her out of office. But then again, liberals are famous for creating unintended consequences.

They told us she wasn't intellectually curious and that she had no policy substance. She is now giving in depth interviews, speeches deeply laden with political thought and philosophy and producing Facebook notes which would get high grades if they were papers written during post graduate study.

Everything they said she was she has counteracted. She's too extreme - she endorses Carly Fiorina. She's a RINO - she endorses Rand Paul. She's not interested in becoming president -  she goes out and gives 7 speeches in 5 days, all precursors to campaign speeches where she will clearly and distinctly lay out her political philosophy, which in case you haven't noticed is the same as mine.

Liberals keep upping the ante and she calls them with a better hand every time.  Don't dare this woman to go to the moon. She just might do it.
