With former Alaska governor Sarah Palin’s op ed piece appearing in yesterday’s Wall Street Journal, the Occulata palingenia haterus moonbats are out for blood.

In this article in The Atlantic by Marc Ambinder, it is posited that Sarah Palin is should not be seriously considered as a voice for the conservatives when there are other Republican’s such as Newt Gingrich who are more “serious”.

Media Challenge: Will They Take The Palin Bait?

Sep 8 2009, by Marc Ambinder

Sarah Palin, the former Republican vice presidential candidate, has every right to submit an opinion piece on health care to the Wall Street Journal’s op-ed page, and they’ve got every right to print it.

But Palin’s existence in this debate does not (a) lend her voice any credibility and, beyond that, even if you believe that her experience as a state governor does give her at least a modicum of credibility, it does not follow that, because her voice is credible, it ought to be influential. Newt Gingrich is influential by rights; he’s done the work, come up with original ideas, and been in the trenches. (Replacing Medicare with vouchers…not new or remotely plausible, even if GOPers do well in the next two elections. Quoting Ronald Reagan talking about that type of proposal…not new. Etc.)

The media — by which I mean the cable news networks, primarily — will determine whether Palin’s view on health care becomes influential. There are many Republican, conservative health care spokespeople who have earned the right to speak for their party’s principals, and, truth be told, can recite the talking points (complete with Ronald Reagan quote) better than Palin and her writer can.  They’re the ones who should be offended if Palin’s op-ed becomes the voice of the opposition tomorrow, because Palin isn’t seen by most Americans as a particularly trenchent analyst of policy. Indeed, the reason why Palin’s team wants to get her pieces in publications like the Washington Post and the Wall Street Journal is that, in this next phase of her political career, Mrs. Palin has to burnish her policy skills.  And the Journal is all too willing to lend some space to this project, because plenty of people will see the piece.

Sarah Palin novel 2

The Atlantic piece is being very presumptuous. Again the mainstream media assumes that anyone actually gives a damn about their opinion. According to them we should not listen to anything that Sarah Palin has to say or write about health care reform because she knows nothing about the issue despite being the governor of Alaska and a mother of five children. If having five children is not credited as “being in the trenches”, I don’t know what is.  And what of President Barack Obama’s times in the trenches on health care reform or any other important political issue? Ah, but this is addressed, the article continues:


Sarah Palin Novel 3…So here’s a challenge to the media: if you want to do justice to conservative ideas and find some balance in your coverage tomorrow, book serious Republicans with original ideas on your programs. If you don’t, Palin is giving herself a voice at your expense and through little effort of her own.

By implying, incidentally, that Palin gets help from a speechwriter, I mean to make an observation. Barack Obama didn’t draft his op-ed, either. But, reading Obama, it’s not a leap to believe that the ideas are truly his. Palin has no chops and no experience talking about health care and isn’t participating in this debate; the content of her op-ed piece isn’t original, and the points are points that Republicans make every day.

This is the reality. Palin has policy credibility problems. Big ones. A few op-eds aren’t going to help her. But if the media treats her as as a legitimate and influential voice today, she won’t need to do the hard work that will result in her learning more about policy and actually becoming conversant in the issues that she, as a potential presidential candidate, will deal with…

Sarah-Palin-Female-Force-001

To summarize, Sarah Palin is accused of being unlike Barack Obama because she does not have any ideas of her own about health care reform.

And what is it exactly, that makes us so sure that Barack Obama has any ideas of his own about health care? Is it because his mother and grandmother both died of disease related illnesses? Or is it because he actually authored a piece of legislation on health care during his time as an Illinois state senator?

He did not you know.Obama never authored one piece of legislation as a senator. He voted “present” during much of his term and campaigned for the rest of it.

A crucial aspect of this scathing critique on Sarah Palin ability to influence conservative masses points to her lack of experience. However the sexist revisionist historians at The Atlantic seemed to have developed a case of collective amnesia when it comes to President Barack Obama’s lack of real in the trenches experience. Anyone who can recall Obama’s last prime time press conference on health care reform may vividly remember Obama’s droll dead pan teleprompter reading expression. It was obvious that what he was reading from the screen did not originate from dear leader’s mind. I was not certain that he wanted to be there. Did he read the bill that he allowed congress to write?

Can you remember that the only time Barack Obama showed any inclination that a single thought was his own was when he race baited the Cambridge Police Department? He actually smiled because that was the most comfortable moment for him during the entire press conference. See, this guy does have ideas of his own. What the ideas are about is the troubling issue. We will see tonight if Obama gives us more insight into his time in the trenches.

    The liberals attack Sarah Palin with imposters, apostrophes and anything else they can throw at her. http://stopthepresses2.blogspot.com/search/label/Palin

    • They attack her chiefly (I believe) because of a immature “this is our clubhouse; icky girls not allowed” mentality that flourishes among the limousine liberal left and is only slightly less egregious on the right.

  2. bob Says:

    All these opinion meisters can say what they want. The fact is the people really like Sarah Palin, she comes across as refreshing, as a straight shooter, honest and sincere in her convictions. Her bringing up the idea of death panels changed the discussion. The old people love her, and the youngsters are joyous in her presence. Go, Sarah!

    2:15 PM ET: TELEPROMPTER ARRIVES ON HILL…

    Drudge is reporting the teleprompter has arrived on the hill!!

    The President should be arriving a little later.

    Experts believe fossilised bones unearthed at the medieval village of Dmanisi in the foothills of the Caucuses, and dated to about 1.8 million years ago, are the oldest indisputable remains of humans discovered outside of Africa……..One of the five skulls is of a person who lost all his or her teeth during their lifetime but had still survived for many years despite being completely toothless. This suggests some kind of social organisation based on mutual care, Professor Lordkipanidze said.

    “We don’t need no steenking death panels.”

    I saw Sarah Palin on the TV for the first time when I was visiting the USA recently. I do believe that the MSM have been very vicious about her. She came across to me as one very credible lady. Perhaps that is why the liberal left are so afraid of her.

    For a very long time the liberal left have believed that only they are the voice for women, blacks and the “downtrodden”, yet the reality happens to be that it is not so. Many of us identify with a more conservative point of view. We are detested by the liberal left because we do not go along with their ideas.

    Sarah was being attacked in Alaska by a bunch of loonies with connections to someone in the White House. The fact that the attacks had not stopped shows that these loonies are either being paid to write stuff or at the very least encouraged to write lies about Sarah. Their attack on Trigg has been horrendous, and ditto the nonsense that Sarah did not give birth to him. These people are so deranged that they will not accept a photograph that shows Sarah Palin as heavily pregnant. One woman by the name of Mary who has a severe case of SPDS (Sarah Palin Deranged Syndrome) goes as far as claiming that Sarah had padding just like in the movies!!

    I have been reading some of Sarah’s recent pieces and she is right on target with her comments. The use of the phrase “death panels” has the loonies up in arms. These paid astroturfers come on places like the Facebook polls ranting about the non-existence of death panels, even though the Senate gave Sarah credibility when the clauses were in fact removed from the proposal before the Senate.

    You go girl… you rock with your comments.

    Folks, if you’re concerned about the costs of this new health care reform proposal, and particularily if you’re a little older, just remember, always, the very cheapest patient is a stone cold dead patient.

  7. Anna Puma Says:

    Marc Ambinder, as is the wont of those who disparage Sarah Palin, has committed intellectual dishonesty. He dismisses what Sarah Palin says because they are old ideas that have been spoken of by others. If we apply the same yardstick to Barack Hussein Obama, he is disqualified because all he parrots is taken from the likes of Marx, Engels, and Alinsky.

  8. johninca Says:

    Last year Gov. Palin was a huge threat to the liberal establishment, but now she is damaged goods. Fortunately, so is Obama, seen increasingly by progressives as a corporate sellout. Some of his former enthusiasts are even calling for a figurative storming of the Bastille.

    • afrocity Says:

      I do not agree that Srah Palin is damaged goods especially when so many male politicians have remained on the scene after being unfaithful, banging interns, running prostitution rings from their homes…

  9. bob Says:

    Damaged goods? How so, she was the only thing that kept the McCain candidacy from expiring on the table. The crowds turned out for her, not McCain. And still do.

    I think she’s on the way up.

  10. I think the “damaged goods” idea comes from her quitting her post as Governor. Many see her as a quitter as a result. I happen to like her. Sure, I don’t agree with her on everything, but, I have never agreed with someone on everything.

    Who knows? maybe she will take Afrocity Moose hunting!

  11. Peter Says:

    I shot a moose once, back in my middle teens. Lordamighty, by the time we finally ate all that I was so sick of moose that I never went moose hunting again and I’m now in my sixties. I hope you have a LOT of friends and relatives if you ever scrag a mose.
