By now most all of the United States knows who Sarah Palin is. A strongest of women beholden to nobody, yet bound to scrupulous attention from everyone. She is a woman of such awesome conservative character, and of which has garnered powerful loyalty by her followers, it’s no wonder the mainstream media liberals hold Sarah Palin accountable to unprecedented levels. So much so that her recently published memoir, “Going Rogue: An American Life,” is held to the highest of standards in Associated Press history.
Treatment of Palin’s book is something new for the AP, having assigned eleven people to fact check all 432 pages, line-by-line, with nothing but the strictest of critique. In all fairness, as Fox News pointed out, the AP is an organization with more than 4,000 employees, and earned 49 Pulitzer Prizes for asking the toughest questions on major news stories – as well reviewing the occasional book here and there. The organization opted not to review for accuracy any of the books written by Barack Obama, such as Dreams From My Father (allegedly written by Bill Ayers), nor had they bothered to analyze the books written by the late Sen. Ted Kennedy, or then-Sen. Joe Biden, or the autobiographies by Bill or Hillary Clinton. And there’s a reason for it, too.
Despite the AP dedicating eleven reporters and monetary resources to tear apart the book—they found just six “errors,” which are meager at best. Four-hundred-thirty-two pages, eleven critiquing reporters, and six errors; the AP claims Palin misstated her record with regard to travel expenses and taxpayer-funded bailouts, and in a typical leftist fashion they were speculating into Palin’s motives for writing “Going Rogue,” stating this that and the other.
In defense of the AP’s overzealously critical analysis of a book written by the beautiful conservative Republican, the former vice presidential candidate and former Alaska governor, the one to help rejuvenate conservatism—Sarah Palin. Fox News pointed out, in a fair and balanced news article, “The attraction to Palin doesn't appear to be partisan, since AP didn't fact-check recent political tomes by Republicans Rudy Giuliani or Newt Gingrich.”
Oh, perfect. So what is it about Sarah Palin that makes all liberals skin crawl? The left-wing media has proven that they cannot, under any circumstance, allow her to be seen as the awesome, amazingly strong woman that she is.
Let’s ask President Barack Obama—what are your thoughts?
OBAMA: “You know, you can put lipstick on a pig.” He pauses to chuckle; the liberal crowd roars with laughter. “It’s still a pig.”
This apparently isn’t the first Obama slur. According to the New York Times, President Obama used a crude sexual term to insult conservatives at his pep talk to Democratic members of Congress before the health care bill vote on November 7, 2009.
Speaking of which, point being, I suppose when you have a conservative public figure who’s also a vibrant, strongly pro-life, belonging, in fact, to Feminists for Life—Sarah Palin—what you get in return from the liberal MSM is an obsession with trying to discredit her. They make fun of everything about her on a personal level; making fun of her gorgeous accent, commenting about her looks from a sexist point of view, all because she’s a conservative woman. What the liberal media offers is a hysterical spewage of stories focusing on the irrelevant, taken out-of-context approach that is now grossly expected of from the liberals and shows just how low one can go to attack a great individual.
Here’s another kicker—we've all seen the sexist Newsweek photo (used completely out of context)—originally published in the August 2009 issue of Runners World. Well, as it turns out, the photo was illegally sold by the photographer to Newsweek for their cover.
Yep, the photographer breached a contract by selling the Palin photo to Newsweek. Did Newsweek know their cover photo was illegally obtained?
I hope Sarah Palin runs for president in 2012—she’s got my vote. She is the image of the America I want to see, in all its glory and of which represents the same values that I hold closely. She is real change in the United States of America.
