2008 Vice Presidential Campaign
Back in 2008, following Obama’s less than compelling reaction on the campaign trail to Russia invading neighboring Georgia, Sarah Palin remarked that Ukraine could be next. The left attacked her, mocked her, called her comments “strange” and “far-fetched”.
Today, the scenario is very real. Russia’s puppet parliament just voted unanimously to approve military action against Ukraine. This after paramilitary forces, likely of Russian origin and backing, have already seized government buildings and airports within the Crimean region of Ukraine.
Which means, all those fawning, sycophantic, Obama-protecting liberals… all those self-righteous, self-described “experts” on foreign policy… all those talking heads on the television were WRONG.
Sarah Palin was right, folks.
I wonder which of those supposed experts has the guts to admit it.
I highly encourage all of you to seek out Stephen Bannon’s excellent documentary of Governor Sarah Palin, “The Undefeated”, wherever it is playing near you while it is still in theaters. Watching the film with strangers, hearing their reactions to the Governor’s speeches and personal history, and having this chance to connect with other Palin supporters on the ground is a terrific experience — and a great chance to network with new friends you may just spend a lot of time with on the campaign trail next year.
The film’s official site is here, with an always-updated list of theaters where it’s playing.
After the documentary leaves theaters, it will apparently be shown on DirectTV and Pay-Per-View and will presumably be available in various formats at different Palin events or through SarahPAC itself.
For those of you who would love to see the film today, if it was within driving distance of you, but can’t for whatever reason, I’ve taken the time to put together this detailed synopsis — that is of course chock full of “spoilers”. Which, to be honest, aren’t spoilers at all for anyone who’s been paying attention to politics for the last few years. You know Governor Palin’s story if you’ve been a supporter of hers, so the film might not teach you much you don’t already know…but I think it’s a great chance to see favorite lines from the Governor’s speeches, remember the key moments of her political career, and feel inspired by the Governor’s decades-long battle against the Cocktail Party GOP establishment and the Left it enables.
My boyfriend Justin and I drove up to Milwaukee to see “The Undefeated” on Wednesday.
It’s hard to get Justin to anything politically-related because he bores very easily, especially if charts and graphs pop up and someone starts talking about energy resource development or the minutia of legislative maneuvers in various states. Justin likes playing World of Warcraft, listening to music on his iPhone, and screwing around on Facebook.
But, Justin supports Governor Sarah Palin very much, though he knows shockingly little about her or her time as Governor of Alaska. I had to trick him into seeing “The Undefeated”, however, because the movie’s not playing in Chicago and the closest theater showing it was at a mall in Waukesha, about two hours away from us. There is, however, a spy-themed restaurant in downtown Milwaukee that requires a secret password to get in and has waitstaff who role-play like it’s a Cold War safe house…so getting Justin psyched for a road trip to eat there easily included a stop at the Mayfield Mall to see “The Undefeated”, since of course I timed our trip to get us to Wisconsin while the Safe House was closed between lunch and dinner shifts.
Here’s a great piece over at American Thinker today, called “NOW Goes Shark-Jumping” by Betsy M. Galliher, dealing with the fact that many people affiliated with NOW seem to have a real and chronic problem with strong women, if they themselves are not the strong women being praised.
NOW is for the most part a collection of Mean Girls.
In 2008, these were the women who stabbed Hillary Clinton in the back and helped to derail the presidential campaign of the first female candidate who had a real shot at the White House. Many at NOW decided they wanted to have a biracial black male president instead, because that was better for their Leftist bona fides.
After they helped stop Hillary, they turned their attention to defeating the first female vice presidential candidate on the Republican ticket, because that too helped a biracial male who identifies as black.
Do you see a pattern here?
When presented with an opportunity — any opportunity — to rally around a woman who has it all (career, family, ability to hold her own and thrive in a male dominated field) NOW largely joins those pulling her down, out of what appears to be a basic and petty jealousy amongst the highest ranking members of the organization.
Read Galliher’s article, and really think about that, because it happens to more women than just Hillary and Palin.
