Yeah, She’s Running And Ready To Rumble!

Published by at 9:12 am under Sarah Palin

I pretty well nailed Governor Palin’s strategy when she announced. Today there is little doubt to what she intends to do:

“I am now looking ahead and how we can advance this country together with our values of less government intervention, greater energy independence, stronger national security, and much-needed fiscal restraint,” the former Republican vice presidential candidate wrote in a posting on her Facebook page. Palin’s spokeswoman, Meghan Stapleton, confirmed Palin wrote the entry.

One thing I did forget to mention in the previous post which is clear today – Palin is going to shove as much crow down as many arrogant, mouthy throats in the Political Industrial Complex as she can. And America will be cheering her on for the next decade as she does so. And she began today:

“To the extent several websites, most notably liberal Alaska blogger Shannyn Moore, are now claiming as ‘fact’ that Governor Palin resigned because she is ‘under federal investigation’ for embezzlement or other criminal wrongdoing, we will be exploring legal options this week to address such defamation,” Van Flein said in a statement. “This is to provide notice to Ms. Moore, and those who re-publish the defamation, such as Huffington Post, MSNBC, the New York Times and The Washington Post, that the Palins will not allow them to propagate defamatory material without answering to this in a court of law.”

The FBI reiterated that claim Saturday, telling the Los Angeles Times for a story Sunday that the Federal Bureau of Investigation was not investigating Palin’s activities as governor, a former mayor or in any other capacity.

“There is absolutely no truth to those rumors that we’re investigating her or getting ready to indict her,” Special Agent Eric Gonzalez, the bureau’s Alaska spokesman, said.

You go Sarah. The center will rise up and ride a wave of disgust and anger, and clean out the political industrial complex. After the parties have yacked and yacked about taking back American, Palin can ride a grass roots wave to make it happen.

Update: This guy nails it much better than I did.

To the Beltway-Big Apple pundit elites, the idea that anyone would (or could, or should) live a life not centered on the government-Ivy League-media capital corridor is simply an idea that is not on their radar.  That Palin did not have such a life, and was not interested in such a life, was by definition a disqualification in their minds. That she was not willing to do anything to curry their favor was simply not forgiveable. The only possible reason was that she must be too stupid to realize that all wisdom worth having is contained within this rather closed circle of geographies, people and philosophies.

Its called an “echo chamber”.

    Listening to the talking heads this morning, it is clear that they haven’t a clue what middle America is thinking, feeling and wants from their political leaders. So they miss the point of why Sarah Palin is a voice, a rational voice for middle America. They think we are a circus out here, certainly with no sophistication, and I’m thinking little intelligence, or political acumen. American’s in the heartland a sick and tired of being pushed around by the pay to play politicians now in Washington who will sacrifice us for a spot on MSM.

    I don’t know if she is running but I do think think she is ready to rumble. Thank God.

    kathie, I just shot off email to FOX. I can tolerate their liberals unless they come at me like Shep Smith after Katrina or what I am seeing on my screen this morning. Furious. Have you ever seen so many turncoat Republican talking heads in your life?

    Shut up you backstabbing Pug elites. McCain was bad enough when he could not bother to defend Palin from HIS crew or HIS reg MSM stops, but he could defend The Won against all comers.

    Who are these people who claim conservative values? Do they never learn any lessons from what they are watching?

    This comment was posted on lucianne yesterday by Tall Oak.

    “Before Sarah was tapped by McCain whe did and said what she believed in, during the campaign she had to speak the weak stance of McCain, then back to Alaska with all the political assassins in tow.

    I for one, take her at her word. She is saving Alaska millions in frivolous legal costs and becoming a politically active citizen. It reminds me of the sherriff in the old west that takes his badge off to finally settle the score with the bad guy.

    What I don’t understand is why our side is not harrassing the daylights out of the lib politicians in the courts instead of carping that the GOP isn’t fighting back. Picket Owl Gore’s house, think of lawsuits against Letterman, block the streets in front of the slimes, and do everything based on the truth. If banker;s homes can be the site of a protest, so can Punch’s.

    Just like the Revolutionary War, the battlefield has changed from lines of soldiers firing volleys into the surprise skirmish that takes an accumulating toll on the enemy. We’re the one’s stuck in the old battle lines and we’re losing.”

    Why do we not have politically active lawyers? Why can’t our elected Voices at least get out of that old, old, old battle line and make their Voices heard? Are they ALL tone deaf from firing those ineffective volleys?

    It really is discouraging. It will interesting to see how much further these liberal bloggers push the “Federal Indictment” meme. I would like to ask how many of you think she could pull it off in 2012? Could a strategy of appearing for house and senate candidates work while she bones up for a run in 2016? I am merely posing the question for discussion sake. I asked on another thread at another blog and pretty much was YELLED at because the perceived I was anti-Sarah – which I am not. I am just not sure 2012 is the right time. Obama is still powerful -

    I have not even listened to them. I am so tired of them all. They will do their best to ruin this woman, no doubt about it.

    But what they forget is that a lot of people out here identify with the Palins, so much so that when that family is denigrated as uneducated, unsophisticated little commoners it is an insult to a lot of the rest us as well.

    I have seen it on both sides of the aisle, but much more so on the left. This is about culture as much as politics.

    I like Krauthammer most of the time, but he has been a snob about Palin. In fact a lot of the reaction to her reminds me of the reaction to Harriet Miers.

    I am not sure why Palin left the Governor’s office and I am sure a lot of people will have a problem with her not finishing her term and not all of them are Palin haters either. However, I don’t blame her. I think she and her family had to take way too much crap. I am surprised she put up with it as long as she did.

    So, I have just kind of turned off the talking heads. Let them chatter to each other. I am not interested.

    The two party system is a joke. progressives from both parties are taking this country down the road to a socialist cesspool with out of control spending, excessive govt intervention and now outright takeover of private enterprise.

    The current crop of professional politicians, are mostly corrupt, pandering elitists and crooks who have so rigged the system that they virtually can’t be voted out of office. They are aided and abetted by a liberal lazy leftwing media.

    The solution is Term Limits for all three branches of government so that no incumbant professional polls can ever so consolidate their power that they are not afraid of we the people .

    Take the politicians off their lofty perches and put them on the same benefit, retirement, and pay scale as the US Military. The are certainly not worth more nor do they do any more important work, nor are they nearly as honorable!

    They must not be unacountable kings and queens but public servants with real life experience so that they may appreciate the trials and tribulations of real men , not isolated elitists listening only to themselves and other like minded tyrannts.

    In short we need reformers who will kick out the clowns, panderers, pimps and crooks from both parties. WE NEED 1000 SARAHS!

    I hope she runs as an independent and destroys the two party Corruptocrat system that is in the process of destroying this formerly great country!

    Look around and listen. Aren’t people fed up with the political elitists and their mainstrem media choirboys?

    Isn’t Sarah saying the things that make sense? Energy independence, self sufficiency, limited government, God, Country, Guns?

    Isn’t she the only politician able to outdraw Obama when speaking?

    Now that she has shed the shackles of McCain and company and of the Governorship she is free to fight, fight, fight and I truely believe she will bring it, to all concerned.

    Only the liberal abortion upon demand folks would tolerate the merciless attacks that have come to her and her family and now they are free to fight back! The American people need to decide who they want running their country a hardworking self made mother or a Chicago street thug and his handlers in their big city Ivy League towers.

    A Christian woman or Hollywierd perverts, leftist slanderers and Liars. The left is deathly afraid as are progressives on the Right. Thus they seek to destroy by any means necesary and their incessant need to destroy will consume them now that the gloves have come off and Sarah is free to fight back.

    Read Glenn Becks book and it is evident that Sarah Palin is exactly what we need and as this country degenerates into a horrible mess, as all Dem Big cities and States have, she will be uniquely postioned to REFORM the system and drag us out of the sewer the corruptocrats have drug us into.

    It’s a darn shame we are reduced to putting all this pressure on one woman. That’s a heavy load. Ask Bush. Hundreds of elected Overseers per one, with nary a Voice being heard these days.

    owl:

    I stopped watching most of the talking heads awhile ago. Every now and then I will watch Special Report, but on Sunday…no news unless something blows up.

    Those people only have influence because people watch and listen. Don’t and they won’t.

    lacegrl:

    I am not sure 2012 is right for Sarah Palin either. In fact I am not sure if she intends to run or if she has something else in mind.

  10. owl says:

    Sorry Terrye, but I disagree with all about the ‘not watching’. If we do not keep an eye on them, who will? I understand it gives some support but the tradeoff is unacceptable.

    I watched MSNBC back when it was the first stop after the NYT to implement the Dems plots. That is why I was aware that Matthews was the crux of Libby’s complaint. That is why I saw Andrea Mitchell do her grunting and nodding that was never documented and wiped clean. That is how I was aware that Tim Russert (someone I thought was above them) lied. He lied to protect his crew that backed him into a corner. After they were
    exposed, I moved on and never have turned the channel back on.

    I moved to ABC as the unidentified offender. Yep. Proof showed in the Oval Infomercial. But we keep one TV tuned to FOX because it is the only channel that even pretends to be balanced. Even they have moved so far off in the last 2 years that it is unbelievable. That is my beef and I want them to be aware someone IS watching. If they go, you can kiss ole Rosie goodbye.

    Someone else is watching, listening and reading. Sarah Palin. She gets it. She gets it to such an extent that she had her lawyer threaten them.

    MSM is this country’s #1 enemy because they are the ENABLERS. Nothing happens without them. They are the foot soldiers. I have been shouting for someone in power to get in their faces. Sarah just got in their face. After a good trashing, they will once again, attack her with The Silence. That’s okay. She can go over, under and around. She has the power.
