"When she walks in a room, folks just explode"

These would be the words of newly re-elected Saxby Chambliss (R-Ga.) when speaking of Sarah Palin. It is no secret how the conservative base feels about Sarah Palin. It is also no secret that she injected what little life John McCain's campaign had into it. Myself, an Arizonian, who had never and would never pull a lever for John McCain sheepishly carted myself to the polls last November 4th and with much enthusiasm filled in the little circle next to her name, wishing his name were absent.

Now, now we have a senior Whitehouse official (surmised to be Axelrod by HotAir) claiming a 2-0 victory against Sarah Palin. You just can not make this stuff up. Is there any precedent for this? Has there ever been a sitting POTUS at war with not only an entire news organization, half the country AND his defeated Vice Presidential candidate while solidly frozen in a state of inaction when faced with decisions to be made in real, live shooting wars? I have to guess not and that this is unchartered territory. Can you imagine Karen Hughes coming out the days after 9-11 and railing on about how Bush is 2-0 against Joe Lieberman?

State schooled, redneck Sarah scares the pants off of them. And she is free to do it 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, thanks to the short-sighted and not so forward thinking Democrats making it impossible for her to do her job in Alaska.

The beauty of Palin is she is young and has many years to gain experience and credibility. In the meantime, she is a highly effective force when it comes to energizing conservatives, focusing the light on Obama and the Democrat misdeeds, clearing out the RINOs, bringing in the bacon and showing the Democrats for what they are.

We do not know who the candidate will be in 2012. My hunch is it will not be Sarah Palin. Not yet. Until then, we still get to savor her effectiveness and sleep well knowing that lil' ol' Sarah and her Facebook account holds as much or more political influence than that of the POTUS. I can see their defeat from my house and Sarah Palin is instrumental to making it happen.


  1. I have to agree I think Sarah Palin is definitly a force to be reackoned with. It is very very obvious that she scares the buhjeezus out of this admin.
    I say Palin 2012!!

  2. I go back and could be her time. We will see...
