Am I the only Palin Supporter who didn’t…

…have a problem with this video?

Context is everything here. You are dealing with a pair of apparently superficial people who can’t get along. They are smug, they are smarky and they think they know it all…

THEN they need protection and they find themselves needing that woman with the shotgun to keep them alive. The “Oh my God it’s Sarah Palin” clip is exactly the reaction a pair of liberals might have, but they know that they need a Sarah Palin to keep them alive. When put in a different world they can’t cope.

I think it’s a perfect illustration of the reality.

When we whine about this kind of stuff we look not very much like the acolytes of the One. If that doesn’t scare you, it should.

Unlike some others guys like Professor Banbridge or Allahpundit are allies to be eventually persuaded and given time Sarah Palin’s performance will do so.

I’ve always maintained the right thing is usually the smart thing. The treating professor Bainbridge as “unclean” is not only wrong; it’s stupid.

A leader is known not only by who they are but by who follows them, to wit:

If we take our cues from the cult of Obama then our candidate will not only lose but it will be our fault, not hers.

(And yes this is in the free speech category. If a conservative is not allowed to disagree with Sarah Palin, I’d call that a free speech issue)

Update: This is exactly what I’m talking about:

You would think that any effort to reform our health care system would include tort reform, especially if the stated purpose for Obama’s plan to nationalize our health care industry is the current high costs.

So I have new questions for the president: Why no legal reform? Why continue to encourage defensive medicine that wastes billions of dollars and does nothing for the patients? Do you want health care reform to benefit trial attorneys or patients?

Many states, including my own state of Alaska, have enacted caps on lawsuit awards against health care providers. Texas enacted caps and found that one county’s medical malpractice claims dropped 41 percent, and another study found a “55 percent decline” after reform measures were passed. [4] That’s one step in health care reform. Limiting lawyer contingency fees, as is done under the Federal Tort Claims Act, is another step. The State of Alaska pioneered the “loser pays” rule in the United States, which deters frivolous civil law suits by making the loser partially pay the winner’s legal bills. Preventing quack doctors from giving “expert” testimony in court against real doctors is another reform.

The most effective advocate for Sarah Palin is her own good sense.
