Here’s a group that will warm the hearts of those on my side who are sickened to see the garbage Alaska Governor Sarah Palin went through simply for accepting a place on the GOP ticket, including a number of stabs in the back from those supposedly on her side. I’m sure Deborah and her OCDB cohorts took great pleasure in making this announcement yesterday:
The New York Times has reported on their Caucus Blog about an upcoming television ad campaign thanking and defending the honor and character of Governor Sarah Palin. The pro-Palin television ad campaign will air nationwide around the Thanksgiving Day holiday.
The pro-Palin ad campaign is a project of the Our Country Deserves Better Committee, which raised approximately $1.3 million during the general election to support the McCain/Palin ticket and oppose the Obama/Biden ticket.
The Our Country Deserves Better Committee will be filming the ad next Monday and had not planned to announce the new ad campaign until around the time of the film shoot or post-production of the ad. However, a reporter for the New York Times is on the committee’s email list, and when she contacted the organization, we decided to cooperate with the Times.
The ad is being produced specifically to honor, thank and defend Gov. Sarah Palin in the wake of several unfavorable media reports which included criticism from anonymous sources.
The members and supporters of the Our Country Deserves Better Committee have been impressed with Gov. Palin’s honor, candor and dignity during the recent presidential campaign. We applaud the way in which she has generally articulated her conservative viewpoints with an optimistic and hopeful style similar to President Ronald Reagan.
I think that was much of Palin’s appeal, she did come through in a homespun, plain-talking style similar to the Gipper, yet with enough self-confidence to allow Tina Fey to poke fun at her. And OCDB spokesman Joe Wierzbicki is correct in his assessment that this is a bid to allow Palin to have the largest number of options available to her for any future political runs. (I would guess first on Sarah’s agenda is keeping her job in 2010; certainly the Democrats will attempt to find a hardnosed candidate not afraid to sling the mud at her.)
Joe also added:
So now the world is watching — let us show the media and the rest of this nation how many Americans stand in solidarity with Sarah Palin for being a dignified, gracious, kind-hearted, public servant who is not ashamed to express her conservative values with an aura of optimism and hopefulness for America’s future.
Pop culture has devolved to the point where it’s cool to make fun of those who aren’t afraid to express traditional American values. Sarah Palin didn’t come to the Presidential race with the traditional inside-the-Beltway pedigree, and that fact seemed to frighten the punditry once it was figured out that Americans were embracing her rather than the worldview those elites wished to impart on us.
Deborah Johns, recent national tourist for a pro-Palin campaign, also weighed in:
The liberals want to destroy this woman to prevent her from ever having a future as a conservative leader, and it is because Palin is a conservative that they are so vengeful and hateful in their attacks. These attacks first began right after Palin was announced as John McCain’s running mate — remember how they tried to insinuate that Palin lied about the true mother of her son, Trig?
The attacks kept up throughout the campaign, and have intensified ever since election day. (Sarah’s been subjected to) attacks generated by far left radicals from websites such as DailyKos, Democratic Underground, and Huffington Post. (The comments on this ABC News story are just one example – ed.) Friends, if we as conservatives won’t stand in Palin’s defense, then who will? Are we going to sit back and just allow the Left to destroy this incredible, honest, upstanding conservative?
Thank you for your support of Gov. Sarah Palin. Please understand that I feel a special kinship with this outstanding woman, because she’s not just a great American, she’s not just an upstanding conservative, but she’s also a fellow Blue Star Mom who taught her son that to serve in the U.S. military is an honorable, noble cause, just as I taught my Recon Marine son, William.
I’ll be damned if I’m going to sit back and do nothing while the far-Left tries to destroy this woman.
I’m not going to stand for it either; of course, you can bet that I’ll be putting the spot up here once I get a hold of it. The people of Alaska will be the final judge on Sarah Palin in two years and it’s my hope they’ll take a look at what she’s accomplished for their fellow citizens and not focus on the hatred her conservative views seemed to dredge up among the elitists in the lower 48.
As for Our Country Deserves Better, they have done pretty well in a short time to have that kind of e-mail list. Oh no, I have something in common with the New York Times?!? Well, I suspect I started with these fine people first so perhaps the Times is trying to catch up with the curve.
All kidding aside, the fact that a conservative group isn’t hunkering down to wait out the next four years is refreshing to hear. I don’t plan on dropping my offensive either, because my views are nothing to be ashamed of and neither are Sarah’s.
