The liberals are in full attack mode to discredit Sarah Palin as a person. Do not focus on the attack mode so much that you lose sight of why the Dems are in destruction mode. They are not attacking because they believe Sarah Palin is a recognizably lousy candidate for VP, vulnerable, easily damaged and easily dispensed. Rather, liberals are in a fit of panic, knowing her personhood is not easily destroyed, that she is a strong candidate and makes John McCain stronger.
They are scared stiff of her because she is an authentic person with whom voters will connect. Her values are their values. The libs know Sarah Palin will deal the liberal cause a serious blow.
Ultimately, the Dems are not all that concerned about her use of guns. Nor are they concerned about her propensity to clean up political scum. They aren’t one bit concerned whether she can raise a family and be VP at the same time. They don’t care her husband had a DWI 20 years ago or that she was fined for fishing without a license. They think it’s great that a teenager can exercise her freedom to be sexually active.
The liberals are panic struck because of two things Sarah Palin believes. She is a threat to Mother Earth and Prepartum Death. Liberals view her as a threat to holy ground ANWR and a threat to the sacred cow, abortion.
The latter is more serious. Palin is a woman who walks the talk and walks the walk, not only herself, but with her daughter. Abortion is off the table for her pregnant daughter and was not an option for her own pregnancy with a Down syndrome child.
The Leftists are in a panic that Sarah Palin might become VP and ultimately president, appointing conservative judges to the Supreme Court who might overturn Roe v. Wade. Not a whole lot more matters to them than this government bestowed right because what government grants, government can also take away.
The liberal attack dogs will be vicious, but it will demonstrate one thing—the Donkey party is in a full-blown panic.
