Standing Up For Sarah Palin

The new sport in Washington these days is not watching the President Elect, no. The new sport is how to destroy Sarah Palin while keeping the Republican Party on life support.

This unedifying display is the worst case of political cannibalism I have seen in decades. Hannibal Lector himself would fair better than Governor Sarah Palin at the moment.

Why are members of John McCains campaign 'team' now bent on destroying this remarkable woman? Why are many Republicans silent including John McCain himself?

Because they fear her.

Sarah Palin is a polarizing force who promises to bring change to Washington. The problem is noone wants this change including the GOP. They also have vested interests and they know that Governor Palin is made of stern stuff who will not follow in their wake but lead them to a new landscape.

A landscape where they will no longer be serving themselves but serving their country. Where vested interests will be bypassed for the best interests of the majority of American citizens.

Sarah Palin promises change but both Republican Party & the Democrats want to stay the same.

This woman galvanized a people who were longing for change and for straight talk. With Sarah Palin one didn't need to read past the 'spin' this is a woman of remarkable character who says it how it is and the majority of Americans loved it.

Sarah Palin is as polarizing as Barack Obama but unlike the President Elect, Governor Palin has substance and credibility. Sarah also has charisma and an ability to reach out and connect with ordinary Americans.

This is why many fat cat politicians fear her, including her own Party.

President Elect Obama is all talk when it comes to 'change' but with Governor Palin she meant real change and not the small change which President Obama will bring.

In the words of Machiavelli:

"A return to first principles in a republic is sometimes caused by the simple virtues of one man. His good example has such an influence that the good men strive to imitate him, and the wicked are ashamed to lead a life so contrary to his example."

Sarah Palin is a power to be reckoned with, and her enemies know this, hence their need to destroy her, she represents to them everything they lack and is a reminder of their own inner corruption.

But a warning for those who voted for Barack Obama...

"Men are so simple and so much inclined to obey immediate needs that a deceiver will never lack victims for his deceptions." Niccolo Machiavelli

If Sarah Palin is ever elected President then Washington will never be the same again, and that will be a good thing.

What do YOU think about the attacks on Sarah Palin?
