Why the far left is so afraid of Sarah Palin

The unprecedented attacks on the personal life of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin by the liberal media goes way beyond its overriding goal of getting Sen. Barack Obama elected president.

Palin is the antithesis of the media and political elite who control this country from Washington, D.C., and New York City.

"The Beltway class is in full-throated rebellion against a nondomesticated conservative who might pose a threat to their coronation of Barack Obama and the return of Camelot-on-the-Potomac," The Wall Street Journal writes in its editorial page today.

From the editorial:
What's really going on here is that the Beltway class can see how popular the Palin pick is with Republicans outside Washington, and especially with middle-class conservatives. As Richard Land, a leader with the Southern Baptist Convention, said Monday, John McCain's selection of Sarah Palin closed the "enthusiasm gap" between the two parties.

There is nothing more dangerous to entrenched Washington power than a populist conservative who looks unlikely to buy into Washington's creature comforts. Take a close look at Governor Palin's record on ethics and energy in Alaska, and it becomes clear what this Beltway outburst is actually about. The irony is that while Senator Obama is running on change, his acceptance speech made explicit that he's promising only more power and money for Washington. Sarah Palin's history of taking on the career politicians of a corrupt Alaskan GOP machine -- her own party -- shows that she's the more authentic change agent.
And here's the clincher:

"If Sarah Palin succeeds as a national candidate, she could help John McCain proceed to a reform Presidency," The Wall Street Journal writes. "Even if he loses while she does well, she could emerge as a major figure in GOP politics for years to come. This is why the media and political classes are so eager to discredit her. They can't let it happen."

Sorry, Tony, this may seem like a bit of a blindside, but I was doing a little googling trying to see if I can find someone who flipped out over Jamie Lynn Spears but is incredibly generous to Bristol Palin.

And well, I found you.

"It's a shame that no one in Jamie Lynn's entourage ever talked to her about birth control."

Do you feel the same about Bristol?

First, The liberals are horrified that their coronation of Obama has possibly been cancelled.

Second, Teenage pregnancies happen in the best of families. That jamie Lynn remark was off topic and uncalled for, the post is about Liberals fearing Palin.

I predict that far many religious conservative families in Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Michigan have found a candidate on the Republican ticket they can relate to. A Working Mom who has 5 kids, ad is facing the same issues theu do, including an unplanned teenage pregnancy.
These people now have someone of interest in the race that they ae not mad at, Sarah Palin.

The More the Libera attack ogs bay at her, the more the conservative base gets motivated to turn out for McCain.For all his faults, this was a master stroke of political tactics by Mccain. get ove it liberals, you just got outfoxed.
