The Liberals are having a grand old time belittling Sarah Palin for having a some notes written on her hand during the first National Tea Party Convention in Nashville, TN. They’ve been spewing a lot of vitriol and various personal insults at her over this throughout the last few days.
In this particular case my suggestion is to just let them jabber, howl, and gibber.
While it goes directly against the grain of all right-thinking Americans to allow a woman to bear the brunt of such attacks, Mrs. Palin has willingly chosen to face such attacks and is far more than capable enough to handle them. She really doesn’t need us to jump to her defense – especially when doing so would be playing into the hands of the enemy by letting them choose the argument and, therefor, the terms of battle.
Sarah Palin’s Crib Notes
Turnabout, while almost always unpleasant, can be fair. In cases where it is actually not a manufactured corollary and is truly applying the same standards, turnabout is fair. This is sadly one of those cases.
Just let it slide by unheeded and unresponded to, as it deserves to be.
We Americans have rightfully lambasted President Obama, the TOTUS, more than once over his inability to speak without a teleprompter or other such aids. It has never sat well with Americans that the person who got elected largely on his charisma and carefully scripted rhetoric is a fraud, a charlatan, and a grifter.
But the door has now been swung wide for the Liberals to make this same claim about Palin.
Palin did, in fact have notes jotted on her palm. There’s no way of getting around that, just as there’s no way of getting the fact that there’s a strong corollary between such notes and Obama’s ever present teleprompter. The only real, substantive differences are the respectively level of intrusiveness of the two speaking aids and their tech levels.
And please don’t get fixated on the difference between President Obama needing a teleprompter to provide him an ongoing transcript for his speeches and Mrs. Palin having a few notes written on her palm. The contexts of their uses were quite different.
Sarah Palin’s crib notes, from all reports, were for use during the Q & A time that followed her speech. Fixating on that is just going to give the Liberals a perfect opportunity to claim that this shows that Palin had shills planted in the audience to feed her preplanned questions.
This is also something that Americans have complained about President Obama doing both during his campaign and after his election. Engaging the Liberals on this issue is just going to give them the chance to rant, “She did it too!’ or claim that you’re a hypocrite for supporting Palin while attacking Obama.
This whole thing is an inconsequential issue. Do not let the Liberals suck you into an argument of their creation over it. Turnabout is, after all, fair play and this is close enough to true to fall into that category.
