Lloyd Marcus On How The Liberal Media Tries To Brand Palin

Funny how the media are quite selective when filtering news items about Governor Palin. Not much was made last week about her latest GOP Gallup Poll figures or the India trip but recent remarks by Governors Christie and Haley are bounced around the media like shreds of lettuce in a tossed salad. Acting like the witches in Macbeth the pundits stand over their cauldron watching every bubble and cackling their solemn incantations predicting the Governor’s fate, spinning enmity and disdain out of unremarkable utterances.

Notice how nobody is interested if these figures are ready to endorse Romney or Huckabee or even Homer Simpson. Instead the media are obsessed with Governor Palin – they need their Palin buzz almost as much as an addict needs his next fix…..not that I am suggesting that any media figure puts white powder up their nose….perish the thought…..

Lloyd Marcus thinks he knows why.

The Left launched their “Sarah Palin is Stupid” campaign the next day after her incredible VP nomination acceptance speech. A woman, pretty, smart, witty, confident and bold with an ability to inspire and fire up the conservative base, Sarah Palin was the Left’s worst nightmare. They were livid. The only thing which could have made it worse would have been if Palin was black. The Left would have surely lost their minds.
The clarion call went out, “Palin MUST be destroyed!”

Now this would not be unexpected if that was the clarion call just from the left. However Marcus points out how often this message seems to resonate with elements within or claiming to be aligned with the GOP.

While the liberal media’s ability to shape public opinion is in severe decline, they remain relentless. They still believe they set the rules of engagement, defining what behavior and comments are deemed racist and uncivil. They even think they can select our candidates; dictating who is and who is not electable.
Some on our side still crave to be accepted by the liberal media. They are embarrassed to be named among those “crazy tea party people”. Thus, they pander to the Left saying things like, “They’re right, Palin is a joke. And yes, we conservatives should be willing to work with liberal democrats”. Unfortunately, willing to work with always means compromising our values, not theirs. Thank God, most of us get it. We realize the left simply must be defeated.

It’s bad enough when the enemy is outside, trying to scale the walls – but even worse when some of their dupes are doing their best to open the gates from within.
