Sarah Palin has been named Conservative of the Year by Human Events.
According to Ann Coulter, Palin was bestowed the award because
"Sarah Palin wins HUMAN EVENTS’ prestigious “Conservative of the Year” Award for 2008 for her genius at annoying all the right people. The last woman to get liberals this hot under the collar would have been … let's see now … oh, yeah: Me!"...
...Like most Democrats, both Obama and Biden boasted of their humble beginnings, while having fully adopted the attitudes, pomposity and style of the elites.
Meanwhile, Palin is the sort of genuine American that brings out the worst, most egregious pomposity of liberals. For weeks, Carl Bernstein was showing up on TV to announce: “We still don’t have the date of first issuance of her passport.” Members of the establishment would be astonished to learn that more Americans have guns than passports.
Liberals were angry at Palin because they thought she should look and act like Kay Bailey Hutchinson: Upper crust, prissy and stiff.
Palin had a husband in the Steelworkers Union, a sister and brother-in-law who owned a gas station, and five attractive children -- one headed for Iraq, one a Down’s syndrome baby and one the cutest little girl anyone had ever seen.
In a nutshell, Palin was everything Democrats are always pretending to be, but never are."
I do not agree with Ann Coulter very often, but her observations are almost lock step with my own. Palin is everything the Liberals say they stand for, but secretly despise. Liberals love to tell the working man that they are on their side, but at the same time they make sure the working man thinks that he is powerless without his unions and his special interest groups and democratic politicians on his side.
Women's issues?? Liberal Democrats believe that allowing a woman to choose, is allowing her to make bad decisions for herself and then correct a "mess", instead of teaching a woman how to make better decisions. Choice is so much more than vacuuming out a womb.
Sarah Palin shows women and the common man that special interest groups are not needed. All that is needed in America is a dream and a lot of hard work and you can do whatever your little heart desires.
So weird that this is happening twice in one article but Coulter and I agree on one more thing. Sarah Palin has a lot of potential to be a future leader of the GOP, but she need not rush the process. She should take the time needed to be at the top of her game. 2012 may not be her year, but the GOP shouldn't pluck her until she is right.
"Perhaps Palin’s year is 2012, but I would recommend that she take a little more time to become older and wiser. She ought to spend the next decade being a good governor, tending to her children so none of them turn out like Ron Reagan Jr., and reading everything Phyllis Schlafly, Thomas Sowell, Ronald Reagan and “Publius” have ever written. (She also might keep in mind that HUMAN EVENTS was Ronald Reagan’s favorite newspaper!)
