When John McCain introduced Sarah Palin to all the rest of us, the conservative base began to stir from its disappointment-induced apathy. Like a match to dry kindling, we caught on fire. For finally, after a long time it seemed, here was someone who was actually enthusiastically speaking the words we wanted to hear. Fiery, passionate, with conviction and no apologies, she embodied what we had been so hoping to see come on the political scene.
Someone to root for. Someone to be excited about supporting.
That’s how I felt, anyway. I know for a fact that this is how many tens of thousands felt too.
She is not deserving of the tacky, classless treatment she has received; not deserving of it, but able to handle it. I have no doubts that “Barracuda” lets these ugly verbal attacks just bounce off. I also have no doubt that we will be seeing her again.
Here’s an interesting project started by the folks over at RedState. I found this day before yesterday and wanted to share it here for anyone who hasn’t heard about this.
God bless America.
