    Palin Camp

    Palin Camp

    Sarah Palin’s reality show filmed an episode with Kate Gosselin of … that family with eight kids. TLC clearly wanted to play the inter-show shenanigans card, and I think Sarah is incredibly endearing in spite of the whiney nebbish Kate Gosselin plays.

    I have to say, I really enjoy Palin’s reality show, it’s a nice way to highlight her personality without being muddied by the lens of her opposition in the media. What do you think of it?

    The "no substance" Palin argument is wearing thin, as Palin has put forth her views and vision in at least as concise a way as any other potential GOP wannabe for President. So either the " ignorant", "dimwits", who are "shallow" are not reading Palin's position op-eds, or don't because Governor Palin"s views have merit that can't be challenged.

    The other part of this equation is that Sarah Palin is a surrgogate for the majoirty Americans who "cling to their guns and religion" making an attack on Palin, an attack on the rest of us. And that, it seems to me, is very dangerous.

    Why is Sarah held to that standard of "specifics" when no one else is? If you have read my comments over the past few months, I have serious reservations about Sarah too but I won't require that she jump over special hurdles that greater in number and higher than for others.

    I want Sarah to prove out to be a reliable conservative. But until she clarifies her endorsement of McCain (and separates herself from his amnesty efforts) and clarifies her statement that she will run in 2012 unless the GOP establishment decides that she would be too disruptive, I see her as a stalking horse for keeping conservatives together long enough to redirect to whatever RINO survives the 2012 RINO stampede.

    I really hate seeing her getting stomped by people who just hate her because….. I am looking for clarity and I need to be persuaded that she is not a starry-eyed rube from Alaska who has suddenly struck the big time and has some naive sense of gratitude to a cynical political clique that "made it possible".

    @pasadenaphil
    Good points. Her critics often say she lacks "specifics" in her positions. As I said, that is fine now because a specific plan would be torn apart by the "experts" this far out. I also acknowledge that her opponents do set hurdles for her that are ridiculous. I personally have no doubts she is a reliable conservative. She doesn't have to explain anything about 2008 to me and McCain is, for the moment, no longer pro-amnesty. He voted to kill the "DREAM Act" today. I have not heard her say specifically that she will run, what I heard her say is that she will not run if she feels running would cost conservatives the election. Again, it is too early for declarations of candidacy and there is lots of time for her to make a final decision. Your last paragraph rubs me the wrong way because there is nothing "starry-eyed" about this woman. She is not a "rube" either. She is a keen politician with a fine sense of tactics. To go back to our discussion, she will have to start talking specifics if she is to get elected and start getting us out of the mess congress has been creating since(pick your own date) 1974. Otherwise, if she gets elected, she flounders around like the current crew in the administration and congress. We won't be able to afford that in 2012.

    Funny. I just happened to channel surf into this particular episode of Palin's reality show and, after reflecting on it, said to my wife: "I think I've had about enough of Sarah Palin."

    And this from a man who was among the first to jump on the Palin bandwagon!

    She's smart. She's gutsy. She's outspoken. She's conservative in a populist sort of way. She's one of us. But, unfortunately, she's a sideshow waiting to happen. If she runs for President I'm afraid the media will eat her alive. She'll be Christine ("I am not a witch.") O'Donnell writ large.

    I hope Ms. Palin continues to stir the pot on the sidelines and does not run for President. The last thing conservatives need in 2012 is a sideshow that distracts from the serious issues we face.

    I thought the most true and poignant part of the episode in question was the camera catching Palin's husband Todd off salmon fishing by himself, away from the ginned up spectacle of his wife's harping on the mystical wonders of family-camping in the rain.

    I guess, as 2012 approaches, I'm sympathizing more and more with poor old Todd.

    Well Sherman, as a blog surfer who just happened to glance at the comment thread after this gentle conversation-starting post by Kathleen (who endured quite a a beat-down from us Palinistas several weeks ago) I've reflected a bit myself and…I'll say to you: good riddance! We have had enough of phonies like you.

    "She's smart. She's gutsy. She's outspoken. She's conservative in a populist sort of way. She's one of us. But, unfortunately, she's a sideshow waiting to happen. If she runs for President I'm afraid the media will eat her alive."

    Now there's a smarmy summary worthy of a round on one of CNN's Palin Can't Win panels. Did Ed Rollins write that for 'ya? Hey, don't go spending all of Slick Eddie's Walkin' Around Money in one beltway bar.

    I guess, as 2012 approaches, I'm sympathizing more and more with your poor wife, who must endure watching your true and poignant trolling of Palin posts, trying to gin up doubts using the tired and discredited memes of 2008.
