Or one man’s view below ground level from fly-over land of Tea and Liberty
by Doug Cook
No matter what your view, Sarah Palin is one of a hell of an emotional subject where ever it pops up.
Talk about divisive, or maybe derisive, depending on ones political perspective. The range of emotionally charged pros and cons surrounding Mrs. Palin’s credentials, her unknown future endeavors and misunderstood past achievements, is stunning.
One aspect is most remarkable concerning outright hate and bigotry on display directed towards Mrs. Palin. I have been thinking how this comes about. It is a mystery how Mrs. Palin can be so highly despised and derided. Or to be precise, the cause of underlying visceral outrage and anger, and reason to doubt the sanity of those who voice it.
Governor Palin is certainly an emotional issue for many. Governor Palin by most factual accounts is very intelligent and has a hard working dedicated approach to most aspects of her life.
Certainly these are commendable characteristic in any person.
Reading of her accomplishments during her career in civil service to Alaska, her well articulated and seemingly brilliant insights of democracy, freedoms, capitalism, liberty and its people in her speech to world and business leaders in Asia earlier this year speaks volumes as to her knowledge and abilities.
In regards to the range of opinion (both pro and con) which people and those in politics have, and how it is expressed, it boils down to fundamentals. Mrs. Palin has orchestrated a brilliant and unique strategy of placing herself in a position to be beholden only to her beliefs and goals. In the current public forum this is a singularly unseen occurrence. By her very own druthers and will of character she has taken her own road. I see this as an act of one who resides in the realm of We the People. This singularity known as Sarah Palin smacks of self-determination.
There are countless accounts of rationale as to why she does this or that. Her every view and statement is dissected-down, molecule by molecule, to the last atom in the search for some evil or an underlying ulterior motive to her persona or an agenda. As a person Mrs. Palin is derided or discounted as ineffectual by almost every sort of power broker and potentate imaginable. The mainstream networks with but one exception have instituted a campaign of Singular destruction of her character and dignity.
This all speaks volumes to the character of her detractors and her inherent ability and intent to connect with just good old-fashioned everyday people.
No matter what anyone says about this person, in the realm of We the People and Sarah Palin, it doesn’t amount to a bucket of warm piss how she is viewed. The things that do matter transcend conventional politics and business as usual.
You see the mystery of hate and bigotry directed towards Mrs. Palin is the very crux of her popularity and admiration.
That being what it is, those nasty items of human nature just do not matter. This concept is a terrible and frightful bogeyman, the ogre of loss of power and control by the elite and privileged, this is what is rightfully feared. Mrs. Palin and We the People are the worst sort of enemy, the ultimate enemy, and a foe with the true potential to be fearless once unleashed.
For so many, in the heart of Sarah Palin there reside the hopes and ideals of the common folk. She has become a beacon and a beautiful shining light to an increasingly disenfranchised and un-represented electorate who reside in the desolation of fly-over land.
