Palin Haters Continue Assault, But Why?

M. Catharine Evans
Sarah Palin continues to be a repository for the Left's paranoia. Ever since her arrival in St. Paul,Minnesota  the self-motivated, good-looking, charismatic, conservative  Governor has been subjected to all-consuming assaults coming from both genders and both parties. The carnivalistic orgy of insults and torrent of false accusations have not abated, despite the general consensus that she is "unelectable."

While Palin's gender automatically makes her vulnerable in the race for the White House, (no female has ever been elected President or Vice-President), there's some deeper unknown that turned normal curiosity about an unknown candidate in 2008 into full-blown rage.

Hardball's
Chris Matthews, along with his tribe of liberal commentators, verbally pummeled Palin again this past week. Cynthia Tucker, journalist and MSNBC pundit, when discussing whether the former governor will run in 2012 said "she's damaged goods." Tucker also repeated the ubiquitous  argument against the mother of five:

"I love the fact that this woman is so confident in her ignorance."

Matthews piled
on comparing Palin to a murderous dictator:

She's just like Mummar Qaddifi, she just doesn't know the world around her....If she shows up with an umbrella and says 'I'm here, not here.'

I don't think this carnival act will sell.
Just like blaming white people or Jews or Christians for all the evil in the world, engaging in hate speech targeted at public figures incites a collective hatred. In Palin's case the drumbeat of "she's stupid" has risen to such a crescendo that the word itself has instigated all kinds of malicious gestures and mockery.

Matthews has elevated his own "carnival act" against Palin to an art form, one effective enough to sow the seeds of doubt in otherwise supportive voters.

But Tucker who refers to an accomplished politician and a fellow female as "damaged goods," not only reveals misogynistic tendencies but hints at the source of the opposition's obsession with such a stupid woman.  The sexually charged term suggests that Tucker, like all good liberals, projects her own human foibles on to the enemy.

The truth is Palin likes herself and it shows. She's an oddity for sure.  Her undeniable zest for life in a culture of death makes her especially dangerous and foreign to the cultivators of cynicism and political power. Palin, as a palpable symbol of American exceptionalism, comes on to the world stage at precisely the time America's greatness is being challenged from all sides. Along with the millions of real conservatives that have rallied around her message, Sarah Palin's mere existence portends a major shift away from covert and corrupt politics toward a restored vision of real hope.
