Thank You, Sarah

It must be terrible, the lies, the slurs, the smears, the breaches of privacy, the relentless attacks, I can't imagine how you stand it much less push forward with that ever-present luminous smile. Just thinking about your travails brings tears to my eyes.

But not to yours. That's astounding in itself.

With each new day, with each new attempt to demean you, Sarah, you become a greater and greater example of what's right with America. You're not just a role model for women, you're a role model for the country. And what you've already done for your country makes you worthy of our highest acclaim.

When we saw what sort of man it was who mentored Barack Obama, it was easy enough for some to dismiss him as incidental. When we looked at the Church Barack Obama attended for twenty years, it could still be said that he was not like them. Even when we see the vicious attacks on a disabled war hero, it can be said it's by a relative, if depraved, few. It took you, Sarah, to lay bare the vast liberal hate machine and put it on full view for all of America to see. The choice of any other person to be John McCain's running mate would not have exposed the ubiquity of it. It pervades our institutions and our media, It's eating up America. And thanks to you, they can't keep a lid on it. They can't conceal it. It's now as if the entire left has Tourette's.

I knew all along what liberals were really like, but to America, maybe they were just angry – George Bush "stole" an election, we started an "illegal" war, the Patriot Act has robbed them, if not us, of their civil rights, women, minorities and laborers are the victims of horrible discrimination. Why, any decent, rational person should be outraged.

But liberals aren't expressing true outrage. If they were, they'd be outraged at all injustice. They wouldn't tolerate lies and smears against anyone. I know, because I don't. I'm outraged whenever a false charge is leveled at a person or group, or when someone is the victim of a cheap shot. That's the American way. What liberals are attempting to do to Sarah Palin isn't because of any prior grievance. She's an American success story. Actually, she's THE American success story. She's the living embodiment of a self-help book.

Liberals hate that. She makes victims everywhere look badly. What liberals try to pass off as outrage is really hate and fear manifested in and by an endless temper tantrum. In a way, you can't blame them. They have no idea how to combat you, Sarah, and what you stand for. They had been doing such a good job of corrupting America, and now THIS? What if others start emulating you, Sarah, your sunny disposition, your positive attitude, your can do spirit… your determination to reverse America's slide into socialism, obscurity, and beyond?

If everybody started taking a page from the Palin book, they might assume responsibility for their own lives and they wouldn't need liberals anymore. Then liberals, being what they are, would scream all the louder, make up even bigger lies, pull out all the stops. Which means that with forty-odd days until the election, and with all we've seen to this point, we likely ain't seen nothin' yet.

Irreparable damage could be done to their ideology if liberals lose this election. Not so with conservatives. Feminism has already been exposed for the fraud it is, and liberalism itself could very well suffer the same fate.. People are already seeing that things liberals pretend to stand for – equality, free speech, even diversity… it's all a sham., and now they know in no uncertain terms how liberals feel about religion, guns, and small-town America, which by the way, isn't just people who came from small towns, it includes anyone who's been through one and appreciates what they represent.

I don't believe conservatives could have ever done as good a job at exposing liberals as they've done themselves. Conservatives are passive and weak. I think it's because they believe people are decent by nature. Fortunately for me, that's one of a number of conservative traits I don't share with them. I'm not religious, I do believe the rich probably pay relatively little in taxes, and if you dissected my entire vocabulary, you'd scarcely find a word that's favorable toward George Bush. And I believe that when you declare war on people who are trying to destroy you, you do whatever it takes to win – you return to a civilized state only after you've obtained their unconditional surrender.

Needless to say, most Americans, and virtually all conservatives, don't think as I do… which brings us back to Sarah Palin. She may make all-out war with liberals unnecessary. She's so endearing and so charismatic, and so genuine that Americans just might realize on their own that they were being led down the wrong path. If she succeeds, she won't just be our first woman President, she'll take her place alongside the Founding Fathers, Abraham Lincoln, and Ronald Reagan as people who guided America through its darkest days and emerged victorious.

Although after 9/11, I also said that George Bush might possibly occupy a space atop Mount Rushmore.

Then again, Sarah Palin is no George Bush, even if they do both pronounce it "nucular!"

I mean, can 60,000 Floridians be wrong?


I was about halfway through writing this when I came upon this commentary by Ralph Peters. I mention this because A) I want  you to take my word for it that Col. Peters didn't influence me, B) you need to read his commentary because it's immensely better than mine, and C) I felt reassured that I was on the right track after reading the opinion of a truly great American.

About tedwest

A longtime veteran of comedy and political forums, I decided that I needed a more restful venue because... well... I finally hate everybody. Except my wife that is... and my ex-wife.. and... no, that's about it. I lead about as simple a life as one can, preferring activities that include anything that doesn't involve going out and seeing YOU! And I particularly enjoy what I call "Get the Bitch" movies on Lifetime. You know the ones where the intended victim finally does something so incredibly stupid that she forfeits her right to live, and from that moment on you're rooting for the stalker. Of course, it rarely works out the way you want, but when it does, the feeling you get is... well, there's nothing else like it, other than, maybe, eating chocolate chip cookies. Oh, and I'm proudly anti-wildlife, both foreign and domestic, and anti-environment - especially foreign environments. I think Howard Stern put it best when he said, "If fifty percent of the population died tomorrow, I can live with that." And I feel the same about the other fifty percent, so together, we've pretty much got it all covered.

    I found this interesting, and I want to say that yours truly wrote Ms. Klinghoffer some time back, taking her to task for what I considered to be too many misspellings and grammatical errors.
    She was kind enough to respond… and apoligize… for English being her second language…
    Well shut my mouth. Lesson learned… find out their nationality before ridiculing them!?!
    I replied, begging her forgiveness. She graciously accommodated me. Now I mostly reserve my ridicule for WorldNetDaily where I can't go wrong.

  2. Jordan says:

    Ted, Great tribute to Palin from you and Mr. Ralph Peters.I am amazed at the garbage being hurled at Sarah Palin, but not at her attitude and taking it in stride.The secret is her faith in God. She is a living testimony of God's power in a human being who confides in Him and not the latest polls or the recognition of man.To put God's first in one's life means to let go of all that humanly speaking we consider earning the favor of man. Then, she also finds favor with man, because the more she is despised by the "intellectuals and educated" the greater inroads she makes with commonplace people.She is truly an example to women and people of faith all over the globe.

  3. TedWest says:

    As I've said a number of times, I am not religious. However, unlike most others who share views similar to mine, I have great respect for those who find comfort and strength in their beliefs. In my experience, most religious people mean well and most non-religious people don't. In fact, their main aim is often to try their best to bring believers down.
    What's truly shocking about the treatment of Sarah Palin is how bold and how low her detractors are. As cynical as I was about liberals, I was not prepared for this. They seem to think they can be as ugly as they want because they assume most people share their views and because the media has often assisted them and furthered their attacks and their lies. We won't know until the election where the American people are really at.
    But if Obama should somehow win, I will never regard him as my President, and I promise to give him far less respect than I do now. He's redefined "rotten" down, and it's too late to atone.

  4. Jordan says:

    Ted,I am not religious either. I am a born-again Christian. Religiousity deceives man to believe he can earn God's favor by human accomplishments, never-ending prostration, self-denial or hermitism. God is not interested in our "good works," because aside from Jesus Christ there are not good works. God is interested in a personal relationship with human beings.That, I offer, is at the core of Sarah Palin's inner strength and confidence.As for her detractors, they would not thrive had we a reporting media, in place of one predisposed to lie, cheat and destroy just to arrive at its goal.In Matt. 12:35 we read: "A good man out of the good treasure of the heart brings forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth evil things."What we are witnessing sounds a lot like Proverbs16:27"An ungodly man digs up evil. and in his lips there is burning fire." Sooner or later, people's sins catch up with them.Prov. !6:32,33 puts it in perspective for those who have trusted in Jesus." He that is slow to anger is better than the mighty; and he that rules his spirit that the one who takes a city.The lot is cast into the lap; but its every decision is from the Lord."

  5. TedWest says:

    You and I have a somewhat different idea of what it means to be "not religious." šŸ˜‰ But I must tell you, in the short time you've been here, you've enriched virtually every day for me.
    VOX is possibly the least trafficked service I've been involved with, but amazingly, it has far and away the best people I've encountered on the Net. I don't want to name names for fear I'll leave someone out, but you and they are the reason I've stayed on here. It seems that each time I feel it's too much effort, someone else comes along who makes it worthwhile again.
    So to all of you, please, STOP IT already!

  6. Jordan says:

    Thank you Ted. I had actually grown tired of online discussions as it was either the same old same, or full of displaced, inexplicable animosity, just for expressing one's opinion.Communication is always easier among like-minded individuals, but I admit it's not easy to find those who share similar interests, let alone express their views in a coherent fashion.This blog and another have been than venue of expression to voice my opinions and beliefs, therefore, I am glad the reception has been worth it.Further, I had no desire to have my own blog, for I do not have a lot of time to dedicate to it.On the other hand, VOX makes it so easy when you first sign in, that I decided it might come in handy when wanting to share my own thoughts or material, so here I am.To completely be on same page, let me add that you and I also have a divers meme as to what is the official rendition of "to be religious."

  7. JudgeBob says:

    I always appreciate honesty whatever the source of moral authority. Whether we agree or disagree, at least we know where we stand with one another. This is in response to the discussion between you and Jordan. Being like minded and having a discussion on a controversial issue is what the Dems are guilty of, known as living in a ideological bubble. I appreciate diverse viewpoints on the controversial issues, but I have to insist on honesty in the discussion else, what's the point? No room for drawing helpful conclusions there, only a venue of abusive communication.VOX's simplicity is what keeps me here, but their short name included in the address is what drew me here. Easy to explain to others how to find my blog. Having the conservative neighborhood makes it more fun but I'm really here to get the message of self reliance and self discipline out to the younger generation. As I publish here, I'm working on developing other blogsites where I can crosspost what I've done here.

  8. Darcy says:

    I will have to chime in and agree with you all. I have enjoyed the "company" of all of you on this thread. I don't think any of us have common interests except perhaps common decency. I know you all are not interested in the things I put on my blog, yet you all do come by to visit now and then. It is all appreciated.

  9. TedWest says:

    LOL! Your dad might be able to say the same thing!!?!
    Thanks to you all. I really appreciate the comments here. This might be a good time to say again that I don't comment a lot on others' blogs for what I feel are two good reasons: 1) I have little tolerance for idiots whom I invariably run into in the comments section, and 2) because of 1) I tend to be disruptive.
    So I try to practice the discipline Bob mentioned, but I've had mixed success.

  10. Darcy says:

    That's perfectly O.K. as Jordan said once, my blog is like being at the office. It's my work, and I need to stay professional and away from controversial subjects. But I do have opinions and feel the need to voice them now and again. I'm like you and not a religious person, but I enjoy those who are. I find them to be good and decent people.

  11. Lexann says:

    Loved the commentary by Ralph Peters!

  12. salaryman says:

    'With each new day, with each new attempt to demean you, Sarah, you become a greater and greater example of what's right with America. You're not just a role model for women, you're a role model for the country. And what you've already done for your country makes you worthy of our highest acclaim.'
    ((sniggers )) – liberally

  13. Darcy says:

    You've just proven Ted's point.

  14. TedWest says:

    They can't help it. Just like they can't help making bigoted remarks about McCain's age. I knew liberals were crumbs, but this election has shown us what we never knew- that not only do they have do decency, they don't even believe in the things they espouse themselves – inclusion, diversity, tolerance…
    They are truly rotten people, and Obama represents them well.
