The Left are? Why else are they dishing the dirt in such a frenzy, even if the Daily Kos cleary got its facts wrong over the parentage of Palin's youngest child. UK blogger Iain Dale notes the abuse of Palin from the left, claming they are 'desperate' to kill her. Those who comment on Palin's 'lack of experience' should note Obama has none, and neither did Tony Blair or even Margaret Thatcher! who faced similar prejudice as a woman from humble origins in her rise to power. Indeed, there are those who see Palin's humble origins as a strength, particularly as nearly half of Americans are from small towns. Well, the CVs can be compared, both in written and video format.
For those wanting to know more, there is also the Sarah Palin Gallery, the Wall Street Journal recording Palin's reform cedentials ; and how for US Conservatives, The Times of London says she is the 'girl of their deams'. Investor's Business Daily notes many Palin attributes that make her selection 'brilliant,' which leads the Copius Dissent Blogger to note how Palin is 'destroying' the Democrats and the leftist media. She does not fit the Republican template. She is a strong woman who has managed to balance family life, run her own small business, and actually has a record of accomplishments. She did not come from money, and she calls herself a "hockey mom." The Democrats have been saying over and over that the Republicans do not understand what it means to be a middleclass American. Well, we have one now on the ticket. Copius Dissent continues: I also would like to point out that most of the supposed feminists on the Left are showing their true colors. They have trashed Palin continuously for simply being a woman, demonstrated by the fact they ignore her resume far superior to Obama's. Then also trashed her for having a family and wanting to know if she will be able to balance the job....... Essentially, all the Leftists have come out of the closet to prove that if one wants to be black or a woman in politics, one better make sure to be a Democrat. Copius Dissent concludes: John McCain's choice of Sarah Palin was the biggest curveball ever thrown in this history of American politics. Best of all, the Democrats and the liberal media are one swing away from striking out. Indeed, and rather than compare himself to Barack Obama, I might add John Key is more like Sarah Palin, and might find better inspiration from her. He too is from a humble bakground, and has made good, with business success. Key also represents small town New Zealand, from Helensville, and is more in tune with middle New Zealand than his urban-based opponent. We also see how the left and their media allies also demonise John Key, just as they have with Palin in America. Such demonising is not a failure of the candidates but proof of how the left and their media allies fear them!
