I have to agree with Bill Hobbs, when he says…
Pat Buchanan isn’t someone I quote often, but his column today on why the Left hates Sarah Palin is on target from start to end.
Actually, I can rarely listen to or read Pat Buchanan’s commentary. But, he did make valid points in his piece over at Real Clear Politics:
One wonders: What did Sarah Palin ever do to inspire the rage and bile that exploded on her selection by John McCain? What is there either in this woman’s record or resume to elicit such feline ferocity?
What did we know of her when she was introduced?
That she was a mother of five who had brought into this world a baby boy with Down syndrome, thus living her Christian beliefs. That she was a small-town conservative who had risen from mayor of Wasilla (Pop. 9,700) to be governor of a state twice the size of Texas.That she was a reformer who had dethroned an Old Boys’ Network by dumping a sitting Republican governor. That she had taken on Big Oil, taxed the companies and returned the money in $1,200 checks to every citizen of Alaska. And that she had cut a deal with Canada to build a pipeline to bring natural gas to her fellow Americans.
And, oh, yes. She was “Sarah Barracuda” — a fierce high school athlete, a runner-up in the Miss Alaska pageant, a Feminist for Life and lifetime member of the NRA…
Or, maybe Mona Charen is has a point in wondering if Gov. Palin’s youngest son, Trig, is the catalyst for the Left’s and the Media’s reaction to the Republican V.P. nominee.
