  1. @ yamit82:
    If you google Palin’s Iowa speech you will find an avalanche of articles all trashing the speech. All writers use in the title adjectives designed to denigrate her or her the speech. Its like they are all echoing the same line. Adjectives like denigrating, rambling, incoherent, self parody ad nauseum. I listened to the speech twice and none of these adjectives came to mind. I thought it was an OK speech but not her best. She is being trashed by people who want to snuff her out before she declares. It reminds me how the world’s media gangs up on Israel, all repeating the same mantra.
    She was subsequently interviewed by Hannity and she gave her best interview ever. You must watch it to see why I say so.

    Why is everyone ganging up on her. Let her run like anybody else and let the cards fall where they may.
    I follow the blogs which support Palin and they all reject the orchestrated herd mentality dedicated to decapitate her before she runs.
    I too don’t accept the media take that the speech was horrible, not in the slightest.
    If everyone would stop ganging up on her I wouldn’t have to come to her defense. I would simply watch from the sidelines as the future unfolds.

  2. Conservative commentators catching up to sanity re: Palin.

    After the Iowa incoherent Ramblings by Plain Finally the recognition is settling into the conservative right.

    I predict she is in the last throws of being in the public limelight. By election time except for a small loyalist base nobody will be paying attention to her and fewer will want to be identified with her. Seems her intentions all along were to parley her brand to make money from speeches, books and reality shows. Those days seem to have come to an end as do most pop idols.

    Sarah Palin Slips into Self-Parody
    Her recent performance in Iowa should disqualify her from any role in the GOP going forward.
    By Charles C. W. Cooke

    In the Washington Examiner, Byron York treated those who missed the address to a brutal dissection. First, he recorded, Palin subjected the crowd to an “extended stream-of-consciousness complaint about media coverage of her decision to run in a half-marathon race in Storm Lake, Iowa.” Next, she offered up some self-righteous “grumbling about coverage of a recent photo of her with a supporter” and a litany of “objections about the social media ruckus over a picture of her six-year-old son Trig.” And, finally, she embarked upon a “free-association ramble on Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, the energy industry, her daughter Bristol, Margaret Thatcher, middle-class economics . . . women in politics, and much more.” All in all, York proposed, this did her no favors at all. Rather, the “long, rambling, and at times barely coherent speech, left some wondering what role she should play in Republican politics as the 2016 race begins.”

    Palin Family Values???

    Consider Andrew Sullivan’s reaction to the news that Palin’s family was recently involved in a brawl. This, per Palin’s daughter Bristol, is what happened:

    “I walk back up. ‘Did you push my sister?’ And some guy gets up, pushes me down on the grass, drags me across the grass. ‘You slut, you f***ing c***, you f***ing this.’ I get back up, he pushes me down on the grass again. And I have my five year old, they took my $300 sunglasses, they took my f***ing shoes, and I’m just left here? A guy comes out of nowhere and pushes me on the ground, takes me by my feet, in my dress — in my thong dress, in front of everybody — ‘Come on you c***, get the f*** out of here, come on you slut, get the f*** out of here.’ I don’t know this guy.”

    And this was Sullivan’s reaction:

    At this point, of course, this is just an outtake from the old Jerry Springer show. And there really is nothing to add.

  3. Sarah is a populist reformer. As such neither she neither belongs with the Dems nor the GOP and though the GOP tried to use her ,she is more of a threat to them.
    The GOP especially is the voice of the elite American economic Neo-Stalinists, their job being to advance the interests of the wealthy elite, suppress reform and oppress Americans … so they really have very limited use for Sarah.
    If we combined some of the domestic economic reforms of Obama with some of the aggressive foreign polices of the GOP we might have a political party that could represent the interests of the majority of Americans and save North America.
    Sigh…. that is not to be, the system is too powerful – it is a macabre circus that the people are both in forced attendance and servitude.
    Ownership is the key and only a very few Americans have ownership in or of America.

  4. @ Ted Belman: You may find Silverman’s analysis of interest even though you may not agree I believe What Sarah Palin And Chris Christie Have In Common

    Sarah Palin is a more conservative version of Chris Christie — at least as far as the 2016 Republican nomination contest is concerned.

    After the revelation that she was thinking about running for president, and after her much-panned speech at the Iowa Freedom Summit, Palin has re-entered the presidential spotlight. But if she were to run, she would almost certainly go nowhere.

    I say this on the basis of her net favorable rating (favorable minus unfavorable rating) among Republicans: It’s not very good. Although no live interview polls have tested Palin’s popularity in the past year and a half, surveys in 2013 found that Palin was almost universally known (average name recognition of 89 percent) but not universally beloved (net favorable rating of just +24.3 percentage points) among Republicans and Republican-leaning independents.

  5. She is good at rallying the base and what the left calls ‘speaking truth to power’, but I don’t see her as a contender. She will also be a useful force in keeping RINOs in their place.

  6. @ Ted Belman:

    I have seen the speech three times and what I see is a rambling speech at best and very odd in spots. Her speech was not well received by the conservatives in Iowa, in general.
