It’s the language, stupid. Compare Sarah Palin’s full-blooded, All-American word choices with Barack Obama’s bloodless euphemisms. The Ruling Class powers that be — of both parties — recoil at the “gun-and-Bible-clinging” imagery of Palin’s prose. It energizes us Country Class, Tea Party types.

“I LOVE what JedediahBila & HeyTammyBruce are saying about THE SARAH NOBODY KNOWS” (on the Laura Ingraham Show, where Tammy is subbing), we just twittered: “Once people get beyond the MSM meme, watch out, fuddy duddies.” Jedediah nails it:
She ruffles a lot of feathers because she plays by her own rules.
As “Saturday Night Live” Executive Producer Lorne Michaels acknowledged in an unguarded moment way back in October of 2008 before the Palin-is-Stupid narrative had fully set in:
It’s taken longer than we expected, but even as her resentful Ruling-Class “betters” flail and try to push her off the stage, the real Sarah Palin has been hiding in plain sight, disintermediating the lamestream media‘s flaccid memes by “shooting to where it’s going, not to where it’s been” — as she coached reluctant daughter Bristol trying to get the hang of shooting clay pigeons in a “Sarah Palin’s Alaska” episode last fall. Jedediah pulled it all altogether in her heroic Human Events column yesterday, “Setting the Palin Record Straight“:
It’s truly astonishing the lengths that some will go to in order to try to discredit Sarah Palin. Sure, the left-wing media loons are a given, but what about the folks on the Right who relentlessly brand her as unelectable, unintelligent, unpresidential, and/or unqualified? What is their basis for those assessments? And if she is so darn unelectable — why the need to consistently, near-obsessively attempt to tear her down?
“I sort of like to shock people. It’s one of my hobbies,” Jedediah told Tammy. Her compilation of Sarah’s considerable accomplishments and intellectually rigorous strategic shots to “where it’s going, not to where it’s been” since that day in August of 2008 when John McCain pushed her center stage — while establishment sages like Charles Krauthhammer were counseling a “safe” pick — will be a shocker for members of the opinionator community who have been listening to their own voices for too long. We agree with Tammy’s assessment:
The Republicans are going to fail. The CONSERVATIVES will prevail.
