The Left unfairly and dishonestly attacks Palin again.

One of our commenters commented that Sarah Palin made a stupid mistake again when she referred to N Korea as our friend. Any fair commentor who heard the interview in which she said it would agree that it was a slip of the tongue as she had referred to them correctly both before and after. The MSM preferred to ignore that and pile on. Really despicable.

I find another things very dissappointing. Why aren’t her fellow Republicans coming to her defense. I am talking about the Republican elite and Presidential hopefuls.

Here’s Palin’s reply with both guns blazing.

A Thanksgiving Message to All 57 States

by Sarah Palin on Friday, November 26, 2010 at 2:35am

My fellow Americans in all 57 states, the time has changed for come. With our country founded more than 20 centuries ago, we have much to celebrate – from the FBI’s 100 days to the reforms that bring greater inefficiencies to our health care system. We know that countries like Europe are willing to stand with us in our fight to halt the rise of privacy, and Israel is a strong friend of Israel’s. And let’s face it, everybody knows that it makes no sense that you send a kid to the emergency room for a treatable illness like asthma and they end up taking up a hospital bed. It costs, when, if you, they just gave, you gave them treatment early, and they got some treatment, and ah, a breathalyzer, or an inhalator. I mean, not a breathalyzer, ah, I don’t know what the term is in Austrian for that…

Of course, the paragraph above is based on a series of misstatements and verbal gaffes made by Barack Obama (I didn’t have enough time to do one for Joe Biden). YouTube links are provided just in case you doubt the accuracy of these all too human slips-of-the-tongue. If you can’t remember hearing about them, that’s because for the most part the media didn’t consider them newsworthy. I have no complaint about that. Everybody makes the occasional verbal gaffe – even news anchors.

Obviously, I would have been even more impressed if the media showed some consistency on this issue. Unfortunately, it seems they couldn’t resist the temptation to turn a simple one word slip-of-the-tongue of mine into a major political headline. The one word slip occurred yesterday during one of my seven back-to-back interviews wherein I was privileged to speak to the American public about the important, world-changing issues before us.

If the media had bothered to actually listen to all of my remarks on Glenn Beck’s radio show, they would have noticed that I refer to South Korea as our ally throughout, that I corrected myself seconds after my slip-of-the-tongue, and that I made it abundantly clear that pressure should be put on China to restrict energy exports to the North Korean regime. The media could even have done due diligence and checked my previous statements on the subject, which have always been consistent, and in fact even ahead of the curve. But why let the facts get in the way of a good story? (And for that matter, why not just make up stories out of thin air – like the totally false hard news story which has run for three days now reporting that I lobbied the producers of “Dancing with the Stars” to cast a former Senate candidate on their show. That lie is further clear proof that the media completely makes things up without doing even rudimentary fact-checking.)

“Hope springs eternal” as the poet says. Let’s hope that perhaps, just maybe, they might get it right next time. When we the people are effective in holding America’s free press accountable for responsible and truthful reporting, then we shall all have even more to be thankful for!

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

  1. Palin is not backed by mainstream Republicans and many others, because she is too attractive [how can anyone so beautiful have brains?]and because she is too folksy. The current climate favors elite college graduates [without experience, unfortunately]. He other drawback [main one] is that she is so conservative. If she were a little more to the center, her other “sins” would be forgiven. She does have CHARISMA and with time, may become more centrist. I wish her luck. As matters stand, I don’t see her as a viable candidate. But then, who ever heard of Obama? And now he is president! Only time will tell…

  2. Why aren’t her fellow Republicans coming to her defense.

    Laura because it’s politics and not a groupie fan club or a personality cult. Most politicians have their own ambitions and political debts, some even may run for president. That said all will in the end back a winner when that candidate proves that they are a winner and capable of winning the top spot. For most politicians they will wait to see which way the wind is blowing before the endorse or even defend not just Palin but any other of their illustrious and not so illustrious colleagues. Wait for the primaries. They will or should be most entertaining and educational.

    I never say I told you so, but I could have.

  3. You are onto something when you say the don’t care about facts. Build it into your narrative going forward. Frame the left wing as people who don’t care about the facts. Ground zero mosque example: intervier from fox asks “have you read the book of this imam? Do you know his views? “. Answer by left wing politician “no, and I don’t need to……..”. Q: “Do you know where the donations are coming from to build this mosque?”. A: “No.It’snot important. All I know is that we support freedom of religion in this country and they have a right to build a mosque anywhere they want”. I think this was on Bill O’Reilly. He also recently interviewed Whoopi Goldbberg on something she had strong opinions about, and when he asked her if she knew about ……, she said no. The liberals are big on opinions even in the absence of facts. This is a goldmine politically. Another is George Soros on Glenn Beck. Glenn Beck has done extensive research and asked people to not take his word for it, research yourself. Glenn Beck has barely scratched the surface.

  4. At least she didn’t misspell potato; her career would be over. The fact that the left is left grasping at such things only shows how shallow and how empty of answers they are. This is just one more episode that says more about them than Palin.

  5. Why aren’t her fellow Republicans coming to her defense.

    Because they are envious assholes who would rather lose the next presidential election than support Sarah.
