Recently, the socialist rag known as Newsweek asked a question: How do you solve a problem like Sarah ?
Granted, the question should have been: How do you solve a problem like the recession ? Or better yet, How do you solve a problem like no readers ? Instead of doing yet another hit piece on Sarah Palin, the high priest of the Obama cult, Newsweek editor Evan Thomas might have done well to ask those questions in an attempt to actually look like a news magazine.
Ok, Evan, I'll bite. At this point, I almost feel sorry for you.
The real reason why the left hates Sarah Palin has nothing to do with her being a Conservative woman. After all, we've had plenty of those in our history, such as Nancy Reagan and Barbara and Laura Bush. They were mildly attacked, but it was nothing compared to the savaging Palin has gotten from Katie Couric and her ilk. I don't buy the cattiness arguement about women attacking other women, how she's pro life, she's feminine, actually happily married to her husband, lost the baby weight, blah blah blah.
No, the real reason they spit vemon at Sarah Palin is she represents everything the left despises. She represents the common every day folk who have had enough of liberal idiocy and want common sense answers to our country's problems. She isn't particularly partisan nor is she interested in fighting wars of attrition on Capitol Hill. She, as a politician, is a problem solver. (If she ever does become President, she would be our first Libertarian President. Sometimes, she sounds like a refreshing combination of Ron Paul and Ronald Reagan.) Attacking Sarah Palin to them is a round about way of attacking normal folks who want nothing more in life than to cash their paychecks, send their kids to a decent college, buy white plastic shoes and retire to Miami Beach. She's the loudest voice in America that says what we're all thinking: Leave us the hell alone, already!
Sarah Palin is not a problem. She's a solution.
