We know now that the Palin phenomenon is for real. We can tell because our lefty friends have come up with a new pejorative: “Caribou Barbie.” It joins “neoconservative,” invented in the 1960s to describe New York Jewish intellectuals who had been mugged by reality, and “neo-con,” invented in the 2000s to account for the sons of the neoconservatives of the 1960s, men who believed in reality even before they were mugged. And who can forget Dorothy Parker on Calvin Coolidge: “weaned on a pickle,” or Clark Clifford’s “amiable dunce” who won the Cold War.
There is no escaping the truth. No real conservative can hope to succeed in national politics without first earning a sneering pejorative from the Progressive Order of Angry Lefties. Gov. Palin must be the real thing.
Hello everyone there in Delta ! Governor Palin came to visit Alaska National Guard soldiers here in Kuwait today. She had a town hall like meeting with all the soldiers. It was very nice to ask the governor straight forward questions and get straight forward answers that haven't been washed through 3 or 4 people to only get half the truth!
Many conservatives were angry, in the last week, as our liberal friends descended upon Gov. Sarah Palin with a ferocity that was startling even to William Kristol. But this was not bad. This was good.
Rush Limbaugh is always saying that liberals cannot admit to the American people who they really are. They have to dissemble in order to get elected. That’s why Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL) is going around talking about his “faith,” trying to talk evangelical lingo to the God and guns set.
But last week, after the Palin breakout and the ensuing disorder in the front lines of the culture war, many liberal formations were running around leaderless, and they didn’t have their talking points from brigade HQ at The New York Times and National Public Radio yet.
Without the proper talking points they told us rather more about themselves than they should have. They let us see who they really are.
And they showed Americans how liberals really are different from conservative and heartland Americans.
