Big Government’s John Nolte provides his take on Governor Palin’s barnburner today in Madison.
If Sarah Palin’s not running for president, what a terrible waste that would be of the single best stump speech I’ve heard since, well, Palin’s ’08 convention speech, which just happened to be the single most electrifying political moment of my adult life. A thrill didn’t just run up my leg that night, it ran up everything in me that’s American, and today in Madison, WI, it happened again. Surrounded by an obnoxiously hostile, astro-turfed, pro-union crowd that tried and failed to drown out her message with obnoxiously hostile astro-turfed noise, the former Alaskan Governor took the fight directly to the growing pile of Obama’s failures in the most effective way we’ve heard yet from a potential GOP challenger.
Who knows how the MSM will try to spin this speech into a negative, but we all know they will. However, that’s the beauty of the Internet age. Today the corrupt media has no say in the matter. We as citizen journalists and activists can spread the word unfiltered through Facebook, Twitter and other forms of social media. Please do.
For my money, what Palin really accomplished here was grabbing hold of and making her own what has made Donald Trump such a breath of fresh air and boosted his poll numbers. What we want first and foremost in our GOP standard-bearer is someone unafraid of the MSM, and who takes the fight directly to Obama. We also want them calling out our friends in DC when they — to paraphrase the Governor — rearrange the deck chairs on the Titanic after they’ve promised to stop Obama from hitting icebergs.
On this day, Tea Party tax-day, Sarah Palin walked into the heart of this nation’s battle, stared down a gallery of Leftist union goons with poise and grace, and articulated our message as well as anyone ever could. Let’s hope this is just the beginning.
