“They are business executives. Political movers and shakers. Sports icons. Media moguls. They’re the most prominent women who are redefining womanhood in 21st-century America…From Sarah Pali to Oprah Winfrey to Kathy Ireland to Suzy Welch to Ivanka Trump, these women share several traits: They’re smart, independent, successful, and they’re shaping feminism today — even if it means being a mom and raising kids!” — Newsmax article,  “Sarah Palin and the Leaders of the Newer Feminism”

In case the writers of that article missed it, the real women leaders of America today, with the exception of Sarah Palin are not in the list Newsmax has hyped.  The real feminist leaders “redefining womanhood in 21st-century America” are the women busy organizing and supporting the efforts of the tea parties to keep safe our country.  These are the women who have not forgotten what happened to Hillary Clinton and Sarah Palin during the 2008 presidential election, where in the real world the forgotten man turned out to be a woman.  

America’s mainstream feminists are not going to forget how the LSM treated Hillary Clinton, nor are not going to forget how the LSM savaged Sarah Palin and her children.  And they are not going to forget how the LSM ridiculed Carrie Prejean, pounding her with its anti-mainstay family agenda, while many women today struggle to hold their families together in an economic climate made up of hopeful strawpaper.  NopeWe will not forget what the media did to political hopefuls who happened to be women, and the ruin of our economy by socialist Democrats out to run this nation into the ground.

So here’s an invitation to the sewer rats of the LSM that work for Soros, the Girls of Alaska, and the DNC drones who have littered the Internet with miles and miles of nasty remarks about Palin:  meet the millions of women of the tea parties who are organizing to get out the vote, and who will be rallying round our flag and our country during the elections of 2010.  Because when momma ain’t happy, ain’t nobody happy.

And last I checked, women have been business executives, political movers, sports and media leaders — since forever!  Nope, the “feminism shaping” today is not about burning our underwear, walking around topless, or buying into NOW’s latest out-of-touch vision of what we are supposed to be at all.  It’s about realizing that women have been quietly contributing without fanfare to the needs of their families, their country and their jobs every day.  And if we need some feminist organization or media hype artist defining our heroines, or our new place in today’s society, we’ll let you know. 

God Bless America!

McCain Palin Campaign of 2008Today, on Big Government, Joe ‘the Plumber” Wurzelbacher retraced a few remarks he had made that were eagerly picked up by the media, and clarified some of the dissing he had handed out to John McCain and Sarah Palin:

“For those who missed it, I questioned whether Sarah Palin should have supported John McCain in his Arizona Senate race. I said it because I can’t help but think that this honest-to- goodness, true blue American hero has been changed by Washington, D.C. and not for the better. I said that instead of him “making me,” as a reporter asserted, he “ruined my life.” Truthfully I wish I hadn’t said that last part or at least had the chance to fully explain it because it’s not at all the “rest of the story.”

So let me set the record straight: I broke Ronald Reagan’s “11th commandment” not to criticize fellow conservatives in public and the liberal mainstream media has had a field day with it. I regret that. I wish I had said it to his face and privately. I do honestly believe that John McCain’s service to our country as a courageous naval aviator and POW rightfully earned him nothing but respect. He has represented the epitome of honor, duty and unimaginable sacrifice. And for the record, he didn’t ruin my life. He and Barrack Obama sent me down a far different path than the one I was happily on–a new path that made me famous, notorious, sought after and vilified. I have learned that all those good and bad things happen when you are thrust into the public eye. Like almost anyone else, I have loved the good and hated the bad.

Also for the record, I like Sarah Palin because although she has served as an elected official as Governor of Alaska, she still acts and speaks like any real person you meet who is worried about the country, the kids and our future. It has always seemed to me that she has a lot of good things to add to our national discussion and that her value does not have to come down to–as the liberal media has tried–whether she should be our next President. Is that the new test of a person’s worth and whether they can add important views on patriotism, faith and family and the role of the citizen? She might make a very good President but that is not the test of her worth. That false test, the subject of various recent polls, is designed by the elitists who have almost ruined our country to chase people off what they believe is their territory.” […]

Thank you, Joe.  For a moment there I thought we’d lost your much needed voice of grassroots, tell-it-like-it-is patriotism in America.

If there is one thing I have learned in the last year and half, after having been ‘introduced’ to Sarah Palin via her speech at the RNC in September, 2008, is that they don’t call her the Arctic Fox for nothing.  Having returned from a little (I wonder if this can is too dented?) light grocery shopping today from a local downtown that looks and feels like a palpably deep recession, I checked my favorite blog spot for my daily news dose of our Sarah.  I immediately discovered that the former Governor of Alaska had signed a contract with the Fox News Channel as a guest correspondent!  My heart took an immediate nose dive and my ‘consistent other’ had to nose me with a ‘get a grip, it’s all for the good!‘  I thought, ‘oh no!’, they’ll marginalize her!’  And then I thought, but then they would take their liberal sights off her just long enough

In the end, I realized she will now, not only be able to beat her nightstick on the sidewalk for every treasonous move the Democrats make, but whack ’em one on their head.   She can say what she likes, showcase her knowledge of the issues, and keep drawing much-needed attention to the litany of misdeeds that characterize Washington these days.  Misdeeds that amount to an overflow of constitutional treason.  She can  help further the growth of the Tea Party Resistance movement through her speeches, and go on to build her war chest for 2012.  And now, not only through her book “Going Rogue”, and her very effective FaceBook postings, she will be helping her political credentials through the medium of television (to include Web video).  ‘And she’ll get paid too’, my consistent one seemed to remind me.

Through further reading, I then learned that it was Roger Aisles, now the President of Fox News who was the genius TV producer who helped erase Richard Nixon’s flaws through the medium of television.  Could this be another Palin coup?  This is not a marginal moment, such as a Tonight Show kind of TV gig, but as a contributor to a cable news program.  Newt Gingrich, Karl Rove, Dick Morris, et al, are also contributors.  This is big business, particularly on a news channel viewed by millions.   Therfore, fear not my fellow Resistance patriots.  After slogging past the comments left by Leftist trolls as their head’s explode with the news, I suddenly realized, ‘Oh my, it’s a good thing’.

Hidden in the comments of every good post (like this one from Hot Air), are gems like this one: 

“…Sarah is following the Reagan playbook to the letter and as another poster mentioned earlier IS NOT trying to reinvent the wheel. She knows what she is doing and is confident of what she is planning to do because as you say gary4205 it has worked in the past. And she is student of past success.

People often comment that Reagan’s advantage of being in the wilderness was that he was already a two-term governor and he was much older and more experienced than Palin. But what Reagan did not have was the complete assurance that his “wilderness” strategy would work and he was operating under late 1970’s communications and technology.

What Sarah has going for her is again a proven blueprint but even as important the use of 21st c technology (Internet, Facebook, Twitter, e-mail, blackberries etc) that she can use to get her message out without having to rely on the MSM who frankly hate her guts because she is a Reagan conservative and a definite future threat to the Messiah in 2010 and 2012.

And being younger than Reagan she may not be as “experienced” but she does have his memoirs and books written about Reagan to fall back on and unlike Reagan in her mid-forties has a boundless amount of energy to “do what she must do”. Yes Reagan in his late 60’s also had a lot of energy but you cannot compare the energy of a senior citizen with that of someone who has not reached 50 yet and runs every day. Where Reagan would have tired more often, Sarah will not. This is an advantage that few talk of now but I know will pay dividends for Sarah down the road.

There is no substitute for youth but when you combine youth and superstardom it is a combination that few can compete with. Tiger Woods has been a dominant force in golf since 1999 when he was 23; no other golfer has even approached his greatness; and with Sarah I think it will be the same as the next couple of years unfold.

The response by gary4205 on September 26, 2009 at 3:10 PM is fabulous:

“Well said, as usual!

Sarah has an X factor that few will ever have. Frankly, Obama seemed to have it to. Of course, he had the entire media pushing him to messiah status. Now the bloom is off the rose, and we see her really didn’t have anything at all.

In my 50 years, I’ve never seen someone so savaged as Sarah Palin. The left have thrown absolutely everything they have at her, to absolutely no effect. Sarah just shrugs it off and keeps coming. THAT is what makes her a superstar.

I still go back to her championship winning basketball game, where she broke her foot, and still played, eventually scoring the game winning points.

Then I go to the time she was fishing and two of the boats collided, and pinned her hand between them, breaking it. She went and got that looked at, and went right back to work.

That sort of stuff says a hell of a lot about who Sarah Palin is.

And yeah, her energy level is high. She is said to be a consummate multi-tasker. Her high energy level, that lust for life, will take her places that no other candidate can go.

Like Reagan, Sarah sees America as GOOD. We all know Obama and the rest of his communist hoard see America as basically evil, flawed beyond help. It’s why they want to destroy the country and “rebuild it” in their likeness.robertfrost

The American people see America the way Sarah sees America, and frankly, Sarah is the only one of the current “front runners” on our side that sounds the way she sounds. Sarah, like Reagan in his day, is optimistic. She makes you feel optimistic as well.

Right now, with Obama in office, we are facing some of Anmerica’s darkest days, her most troubling times. But when Sarah speaks of American exceptionalism, you just know we’ll get through this.

As Dr Zero wrote Sarah Plain is the Leader of the Free World.
