"I can see Russia from my house!" – Sarah Palin
Possibly the earliest attack of the ongoing media character assassination of Sarah Palin; it was comedian Tina Fey - impersonating Ms. Palin on Saturday Night Live - who actually uttered this line that is now widely attributed to the former Alaska governor.
The basis for this line comes from a September 2008 interview with ABC News's Charles Gibson, who asked Palin what insights she had from her state being so close to Russia. She responded: "They're our next-door neighbors, and you can actually see Russia from land here in Alaska, from an island in Alaska."
This is true; you can actually see Russian soil while standing in Alaska.
On a clear day, those on the Alaskan island of Little Diomede can see the Russian island of Big Diomede, located across the International Date Line some two and a half miles away.
They Attack Her Because They Fear Her.
If Sarah Palin was the dunce they seek to portray her as, they would stand back and let her keep talking. The fact of the matter is that the American people are overwhelmingly Conservative, and Obama's left-wing agenda has been repudiated and rejected; the extraordinary results of the November 2010 elections speak of this. Right now any true Conservative the Republicans put out there will beat Obama knockdown, drag out, and Sarah Palin speaks a message of pure Conservatism.
The Obama Whitehouse is a sinking ship - dead in the water - and the inner circle of the the Obama Administration is in full panic mode at the poll numbers. Shaking off the media hyperbole, Republicans are finally beginning to awaken to the obvious; that Obama is beatable, and leading Democrats are now beginning to openly speak of this:
Howard Dean warns Democrats Sarah Palin could beat Obama in 2012
"Obammunism is a poison unleashed upon our land,
and Sarah Palin is the Antidote."
That's a direct quote from me - Sean Linnane - and you can share it & spread it far and wide. As I've stated upon numerous occasions I do not like to get political here in Blog STORMBRINGER but I see the effects of Obama's extreme Liberal agenda as increasingly dangerous to national security. STORMBRINGER is not a political blog but is also not an ivory tower; I simply will not sit back and say nothing as the most radical left-wing politician ever to make it to the Whitehouse wreaks havoc upon the greatest nation on Earth, the greatest hope for freedom in the history of Mankind.
