SEARCH BLOG: PALIN
The "politics of Palin" are not that much different from other conservatives. While liberals may not agree with her politics or other conservatives, liberals reserve special venom for Sarah Palin... much like they did [and still do] for George Bush. Again, why?
John McCain did not receive such antipathy, so why was so much directed at Palin?
And why can conservative Mitt Romney get a personal pass from liberals when Sarah Palin cannot? Many of you will have your own favorite reason, but I think the liberal reaction is not intellectual... I believe it is visceral. Liberals cannot help themselves. Sarah Palin ... and George Bush ... "talk funny." The liberals from the Northeast and West Coast simply hate the way Sarah Palin sounds. To them, she sounds uneducated. George Bush was called a buffoon ... not because he was stupid or because of his political views, but because of the way he talked... his Texas accent... and his tendency to use the wrong word because he did not use a teleprompter.
Think about it... who was the most hated Democrat by liberals... Lyndon Johnson. His down-home Texas drawl was more than the Bostonian ears could tolerate.
A few seconds of silence before this begins.
Maybe the problem is not with Palin.
Y'all thank 'bout it.
