That’s why the left wants you to think that Sarah Palin is a flash in the pan; a political star who has nothing more to add to our national conversation even though millions of American still admire her.
We’ve got news for the left: Sarah Palin is still a political force to reckon with. She still packs the house wherever she speaks, she still gets standing ovations and she is still sought after by candidates hoping to get her endorsement.
The editor of ConservativeHQ, the highly regarded conservative news source, said in an interview on Sarah Palin Radio that Gov. Palin is as electric now as she was when she was the Republican vice president nominee. The editor, George Rasley, ought to know because he was there alongside Gov. Palin during the 2008 campaign as one of her lead advance men.
“Gov. Palin still draws large and enthusiastic crowds,” he said. “Just look at her last two CPAC speeches. She nailed it with those audiences. Working with her in 2008 was a once-in-a-lifetime experience. You get an adrenaline high that is hard to match.”
“After her spell-binding speech at the Republican National Convention,” Rasley added, “we knew she was going to be big, but nobody realized just how big she would become.”
Which might explain the malicious treatment she has endured not only from the left but the establishment on the right as well. Palin supporters call it “Palin Derangement Syndrome.”
“The Republican establishment doesn’t know what to do with Gov. Palin,” Rasley said and “they don’t know how to connect with her constituency. Republicans will continue to lose until the establishment stops denigrating and ignoring conservatives.”
The leader of the inside-the-beltway pack, Karl Rove, is just the latest to suffer from the “Palin Derangement Syndrome.” He has done everything he can to besmirch Gov. Palin including mocking her on national TV.
Rasley had enough of Rove’s thuggish tactics and wrote a scathing letter to Rove demanding him to cease and desist with his attacks against Gov. Palin and included thousands of signatures on a petition.
Rasley said in the interview that the letter and petition has been delivered to Rove and more signatures will be forthcoming. He could only fit 5,000 signatures into one, large envelope. “Basically, the petition is an outlet for people to express their outrage over how Gov. Palin is treated,” Rasley said. The petition is prominently featured at ConservativeHQ.com.
“People are looking for leaders and leadership comes in a lot of different packages. Gov. Palin jumps out as one of those leaders, Rasley said. “If Republicans want to win the White House, it’s going to have to come from the grassroots.”
