Hatred, fear of Sarah Palin is irrational Recently, longtime White House reporter Carl Cannon publicly confessed that the media "took sides, straight and simple" against Gov. Sarah Palin in the 2008 vice presidential race. My reaction to this revelation can be summed up in two words: Well, duh. Did Mr. Cannon actually think this would surprise anyone? Here's the scoop: Gov. Palin accepted an invitation to run for vice president. She campaigned, she lost and she went home. End of story, right? Wrong. The liberal media has become Sarah Palin's stalker. They hate her. Hatred stems from fear, and fear stems from threat recognition. Liberals recognize Gov. Palin as a threat, which is why they must do whatever they can to destroy her. There is no other reasonable explanation. Palin-bashing is also very profitable. Post a nasty blog about her and you'll get thousands of hits. Write an anti-Palin article and your magazine will fly off the shelves. Make perverted jokes about her offspring and your ratings will soar past Conan O'Brien's! Someone told me, "Well, I hate Sarah Palin because she's stupid." Hating someone because he or she is "stupid" is a stupid reason to hate someone. If Gov. Palin is so "stupid," why waste time on her at all? Don't they have anything better to do? Regarding Sarah Palin's future plans: Who knows? Who cares? It's nobody's business but hers. She is quitting her job and getting on with her life. And those of us who are not infected with Palin Derangement Syndrome might suggest that all of her detractors get over her, get their own life and get on with it. Sound like a good plan? Doggone it, you betcha. Hatred, fear of Sarah Palin is irrational 072509 - The Augusta Chronicle ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Sarah Palin ......brings out the lack of ehics with the liberals. Sarah Palin.......Is loved by the people and they know that she alone can beat Obama and make him look like the dumb a$$ that he is. The Democrats and State-run media are the same - they pay attention to the bigger threat and Sarah Palin is their worst nightmare - because she is a common-sense, down-to-earth, effective communicator. Sarah Palin ......Angers the feminists (they're angry female dogs anyway) because she has done what they dream of achieving but don't have the balls (fortitude) to accomplish half the things she has. They keep thmeselves tied to their self made leashes.....and stand their only barking. Sarah Palin......Makes the liberals look in the mirror and show them that killing babies is evil and they are in full support!! BECAUSE OF THE FACT THAT LIBERALS HATE AND FEAR SARAH PALIN IS A GREAT REASON THAT SHE IS WHAT AMERICA NEEDS! HOW'S THAT HOPE AND CHANGE WORKING FOR YOU ....LIBERAL MAGGOTS?
