At the ironically named Gaylord resort in Nashville Tennessee, Sarah Palin on Saturday night addressed a portion of the Tea Party movement at their “convention”. Viewers saw a smart woman who has been under unfair attacks for well over a year now.
Sarah Palin has been attacked and her children and husband have been attacked. Andrew Sullivan questioned whether Sarah Palin was the mother of her Down Syndrome child, Trig. DailyKooks and LeftTalkers giggled at the ugly charge. The “creative clueless” went so far as to charge that Sarah Palin’s husband had incestuously fathered Trig with his own daughter. Sarah Palin has been denounced as a dope who does not know Alaska from Arugula. Every ugly class based argument of Sarah as some sort of hillbilly from Dogpatch has been marshaled against her. Last night Sarah Palin demonstrated she is sharper than Barack Obama.
Many of the arguments darted at Palin are familiar to Hillary Clinton supporters. Bill and Hillary Clinton too were portrayed by the “creative clueless” fingerbowl set of Washington D.C. and Big Media as Lil Abner types from Dogpatch Arkansas. The sexist and misogynistic arguments arrayed against Hillary Clinton have been recycled in even cruder form against Sarah Palin. We thought of Geraldine Ferraro and the Obama apologist Rachel Maddow and an interview on the Today Show:
Rachel Maddow was besotted with her golden calf Obama from her then perch at the defunct Hillary hating Air America. Geraldine Ferraro however had the historical knowledge which allowed her to see what doe-eyed lovestruck Maddow was too callow or too base to acknowledge. Now Republicans, will have to step up and take over from where Ferraro left off. Sexists and misogynists on the right will have to be confronted from the right as we confronted our fellow Democrats on the Left.
Jeri Thompson is an example of what will have to happen if Sarah Palin is not to be subjected to further sexist and misogynistic attacks:
Jeri Thompson blasted Fox News host Chris Wallace on the Fred Thompson show today, calling his joke that he hoped Sarah Palin would sit on his lap during an interview with him “inappropriate” and “insipid,” and demanding “action from Fox.
Thompson, the wife of the former senator and presidential candidate, told POLITICO’s Jonathan Martin that the remark, to Fox Business’s Don Imus, amounted to misogyny, and that she was tired of seeing it from “these dirty old men” on Fox, a network that she said ought to be respectful of conservative women.
Jeri Thompson must amend her remarks to include all women, like Hillary Clinton, in her campaign against sexism and misogyny.
“Sarah Palin is now part of the Fox family,” Thompson said on the show. “She deserves you all watching her back — and I do not mean it literally.”
Wallace, she said, “owes her an apology.”
“Not only is she a national figure – she deserves the respect that any other man would get in that situation,” Thompson said, saying that her inbox was full of complaints from conservative women over the segment, and that the Palin group Team Sarah, as well as the anti-abortion Susan B. Anthony List, were dismayed by the segment.
“I hope that Fox does something about this, and they actually take this on, because it is not funny,” Thompson said.
The “creative clueless” of the Dimocratic Left we have taken on and denounced. It is good to hear conservatives take on conservatives on behalf of women and womens’ rights.
Jeri Thompson was correct when she said the segment on “nappy-headed hos” Imus show, was not funny. The hypocrites on the Dimocratic Left latched on to the Fox News misogyny but they were silent as Hillary was attacked. Now the hypocrites attack Fox News for what the Democratic Left also did during their season of mute:
WALLACE: We’re going to be down in Nashville with her at the National Tea Party Convention, and I’m excited. First of all, I’m excited to finally meet and interview Sarah Palin. We’ve been chasing her like Captain Ahab and the great white whale for the last year and a half. […]
IMUS: When you interview her, will she be sitting on your lap? (LAUGHTER)
WALLACE: One can only hope. (LAUGHTER)
In September, Wallace went on Mike Gallagher’s radio show and mentioned his upcoming interview with right-wing activist James O’Keefe and said that he wished he was also going to have his partner Hannah Giles — who played the prostitute in the ACORN scheme — on the show because “she’s pretty cute.”
The Democratic Left was complicit in the establishment attacks on Hillary Clinton which utilized sexism and misogyny. Unlike Hillary Clinton, Sarah Palin will have allies in Big Media in her fight against sexism and misogyny but the “dirty old men” even at Fox News cannot be relied on. The “dirty old men” of the Democratic Left includes lesbian Maddow and “Tingles” Matthewson MSNBC who employ the sexually charged “teabaggers” epithets, as well as the giggling boys on Big Blogs – who will throw every class based prejudice at Sarah Palin.
We cannot wait for the day when sexists and misogynist on the Democratic Left and the Republican Right, and even in the Tea Party movement, witness the great meeting when girl talk becomes Woman Power. That day is not far off.
The ideal situation, which will cause the sexists and misogynist to die or be killed, would be a Hillary Clinton versus Sarah Palin presidential battle in 2012. The sexists and misogynist will pleasure themselves with dreams of a “catfight” between two strong women. But for an America in desperate need of a philosophical battle, not an orgy of veiled and not so veiled sexual assaults such as Barack Obama waged in 2008, a Hillary Clinton versus Sarah Palin contest will illuminate. First Barack Obama must be forced off the political stage and back to the filth of Lake Michigan where he can extract new sums of money from the Chicago mob. On that first point Hillary Clinton supporters and Sarah Palin supporters can all agree – we have interests which coincide.
While we Hillary supporters prepare in Winter quarters, Sarah Palin supporters take heart from their choice for president.

While Hillary Clinton has to flee to other countries, for fear of breaking out into her trademark riotous laughter, every time she witnesses the TelePrompTer take Obama out for a spin – Sarah Palin is beating Obama like a rented mule who has not learned anything from the years ago attack on the USS Cole through to the first and then eventually successful attacks on the World Trade Center as well as the “shoe bomber” attempt.
The “dirty old men” at MSNBC on Saturday had to abandon the “teabagger” mockery:
Sarah Palin had some pointed advice to President Barack Obama on Saturday night: “Stop lecturing and start listening.”
In her keynote address to the inaugural national “tea party” convention, Palin declared that “America is ready for another revolution” and repeatedly assailed Obama before adoring activists, a seemingly natural constituency should she run for president.
“This movement is about the people,” the 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee said as the crowd roared. “Government is supposed to be working for the people.”
Noting Democrats’ recent electoral losses just a year after Obama was elected on promises of hope and change, she asked: “How’s that hope-y, change-y stuff workin’ out for you?“
The “dirty old men” will return no doubt with their “teabaggery” condescension and Obama apologias on Monday all the way through to election night in November.
While narcissism reigns supreme and Obama brags about himself and an unnamed supporter who wants to be buried in an Obama T
ea-Shirt, this past week, Palin last night poured hot words at the Tea Party.
Sarah Palin energized her supporters. Big Media continued the attacks on Sarah Palin. Associated Press led their coverage with a tooth gnashing, fingernail clawed Sarah Palin (Hillary supporters will recall Obama in 2008 attacking Hillary with the not-so-veiled “the claws come out” to play to his misogynist supporters.) Politico led its coverage with this sexist introduction: “After flirting coyly for months, Sarah Palin this weekend launches an aggressive play…”
The Big Blog Boys of the Obama fellating Left, wept when they heard the Tea Party would not run third party candidates in 2010. Third Party candidates were the last HOPE for the Dimocratic Left at Nothing Left in fear of November’s elections.
Organizers say they “absolutely do not support a third party.”
Well, that’s that. Any hopes that Democrats will preserve their large congressional majorities in 2010 through a wave of tea party candidates who splinter conservative votes should be dashed.
Sarah Palin praised the Tea Party movement last night. Ronald Reagan came in for cheers, as did her abused by the kooks, son Trig. Those of us who support Hillary Clinton will give Sarah Palin her due and reject and confront those from the Dimocratic Left who attack her on the basis of sexism and misogyny. We have seen enough of that in 2008.
