Mrs Palin Goes To Washington

THINK LEGALLY BLONDE….THINK MR SMITH GOES TO WASHINGTON….THINK PRIVATE BENJAMIN….THINK SOUND OF MUSIC….

What an incredible week…6 days actually…a movie in the making…a cast of characters …from Northern Exposure to Sex In The City….with a little Wag The Dog …… Broadcast news…and One Flew Over The Cukoos Nest thrown in for good measure……

I’m thinking of Maria and the Von Trapp family…coming down off the snowy mountain….to give that warm fuzzy feeling…the harmony without the breaking into song….leaving that for those who watched….

That wonderful “insider” inclusive feeling one gets when watching …great verbage fly from the screen…as a Nicholson or Streisand can provide….( even if they are the other party)….coming fast and furious from Sarah and her lead-up guys…Romney…Huckabee….and Giuliani….making the audience lean in to make sure not to miss the next barb ……..pun intended…

She had it all….a check-list….for both the opponents and the voters….Hockey Moms…or any child activities traveling parent….special needs families….no attempt to hide that baby…offering a glimpse of who would look after the little guy….everyone…including the youngest sister who held him tenderly…stroked his head …licking her hand to flatten in down his baby fine hair…..(priceless)…. http://www.stoptheaclu.com/archives/2008/09/04/sarah-palins-adorable-daughter-spit-comb-video/

she made the media look as bad as we on the sidelines knew they had been…. gave the jabs to Obama…Biden and their ilk…..making the Hollywood produced “theatrics” of their retro ” Camelot change” message…look like an intensified bad review…making those not fully immersed….snap out of it…to see what is behind the subliminal messages….she was a natural!….

The speech….

SEE NO EVIL…HEAR NO EVIL….SPEAK NO EVIL….

More fun was found in the aftermath….no sound needed….MSNBC…..after the speech…did not return to the commentators for what seemed like an eternity…what was going on?…Finally…still no sound …but the camera said it all…a flash at Chris Matthews…he looked like he ate something bad…Keith Obermann…his mouth furled…his shoulders uncharacteristically slumped….David Gregory….again no grin…just a look of grasping for straws…to say something…anything….stuck commenting first….

For this kind of response…coming from her harshest cable channel critics…those who thought she was irrelevant…not vetted…properly…because… as they so cavalierly announced…for months there was no mention of her…not allowing for them to vet her first..it was a thing of beauty…no matter what your politics…

A UNITY OF FEIGNED IGNORANCE?….

On CNN…Larry King…the Democratic women pundits…including a Florida Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz…..asked about attacks on Sarah Palin’s motherhood…child care issues…front and center …endlessly… for days….all feigned ignorance…saying they had not heard any such thing….a unity of disingenuous partisanship at its worst….looking as bad as it sounded….too bad…

SARAH AIN’T NO SIDESHOW…..

What is it with women…..why are we our harshest critics…..why are we so bitchy?…..Our dirty little secret…women do it all for other women…our hair…our clothes…our body image…it’s all for the approval of our sisterhood….really!…..Success…like this night…still brings out the claws…. include…a dig…that the center of attention…Sarah Palin….was a “sideshow”…come on!…..

Included in the NYTimes story…by the two women reporters….

“But the nomination was a sideshow to the evening’s main event, the speech by the little-known Ms. Palin, who was seeking to wrest back the narrative of her life and redefine herself to the American public after a rocky start that has put Mr. McCain’s closest aides on edge. Ms. Palin’s appearance electrified a convention that has been consumed by questions of whether she was up to the job, as she launched slashing attacks on Mr. Obama’s claims of experience.”

spokesman/

Today …..the pundits seem to have toned it down….they met their match..they are re-grouping….they know they have totally been had!

This is fun….this is exciting….this really is a race….

Sarah is something to be reckoned with….the culture wars….are back….big time……and the “bubble” of Obama…has been burst!….

More to come…………
