Arrogant, Elitist Left Wingers get it wrong AGAIN!

I was recently reading the online Newsweek article entitled "Saint Sarah
To white evangelical women, Sarah Palin is a modern-day prophet, preaching God, flag, and family—while remaking the religious right in her own image."

I liked how Kelsey (Uffda) over at C4P put it "Newsweek, bless its little money-bleeding heart, is trying desperately to make a buck by putting Sarah Palin on its cover."

I knew when I started reading the piece I would likely disagree with every point in it. One particular point the writer Lisa Miller tries to make is "...but a certain kind of conservative, Bible-believing woman worships her." There they go again...putting down people of faith and belittling believers.

I think back to the Head Elitist Barack Obama's statement: "They cling to guns or religion.”

Obama was wrong in 2008, and Ms. Miller is wrong in 2010. I know many pro-Sarah ladies who are also believers in Christ, and they certainly do not worship Governor Palin. That is such a ludicrous statement on so many levels. Not all of Governor Palin's avid supporters are white women, and being an avid supporter does not mean you worship her. True Christians and devout Jews know what the First Commandment is.

Not all of Governor Palin's supporters are Christians either. Not all are from "the back woods" and rednecks. We are doctors, lawyers, school teachers, accountants, construction workers, students, and everything in between. We are young and old. We are Jewish, Christian or any number of the various religions out there, and people with no religion at all. We are Black and White, Native American, Indian, Hispanic, Oriental and again, everything in between. We are straight and gay. Does that mean we all agree on everything? Certainly not, but one thing we do agree on is our support of Governor Palin. Does that mean we agree with Governor Palin 100% of the time? No, we don't. I may not like all of the Governor's endorsements, but that does not change my support for her one bit. Our 2012 Draft Sarah Committee Media Rep Adrienne Ross and others were interviewed by Scott Conroy of CBS, and he wrote, "Ross and other prominent members of what might best be described as the ‘Sarah Palin community’ reject the notion that they are blind followers in a political cult of personality. They are clearly sensitive to being painted with a label that they instead attribute to President Obama's biggest fans." He was correct in his assessment of what I like to call the Palin Coalition.

So you Arrogant, Elitist Left Wingers, stop trying to tear down Governor Palin by trying to paint people of faith as knuckle-dragging Neanderthals. We will continue to cling to our Bibles, guns, and yes, Sarah Palin. She speaks for us, she is our standard-bearer, so get over it!

Super Tuesday results show that the "establishment" Republicans better start taking notice of Governor Palin

Super Tuesday show that the "establishment" Republicans better start taking notice of Governor Palin and her powerful voice in influencing the Republican Electorate. Governor Palin's endorsements of Carly Fiorina, Nikki Haley and Terry Branstad helped them win their primary or move into a run off .

I saw this interview (linked below) over at one of my favorite sites, PalinTV.com. It shows Governor Palin to be humble and trying not make a lot out of her endorsement. Clearly those endorsements made the biggest difference in these races but Governor Palin humility prevents her from being a glory hound. How refreshing is that?

Watch the interview: Governor Palin On Hannity Reacts To Super Tuesday Results

I also read this article "Palin's backing pays off for pals" at POLITICO, that shows Governor Palin's endorsements paid off. The best thing in this whole process is the endorsed candidates know what put them over the top and don't mind giving credit where credit is due.
From the above article;
"Her decision to get - and stay - involved in the race here in South Carolina was a huge boon to our campaign, because it caused a lot of South Carolinians to take a second look at a rising in the polls but once-little known state legislator who was fighting to give them back their government,” Haley spokesman Tim Pearson said of Palin.

And this as well;
“Governor Palin’s endorsement was integral to the success of our campaign,” Fiorina spokeswoman Julie Soderlund told POLITICO. “She provides the ‘good housekeeping seal of approval’ for conservative, outsider candidates. After earning her endorsement we saw an immediate spike in support for Carly amongst conservatives, who represent the vast majority of Republican primary voters.”

Earlier I mentioned PalinTV. Well here is a clip I saw over there of Nikki Haley talking about the Governor endorsement.

SO Republican Establishment take notice and give credit where credit is due. I won't even ask the lefties to give credit where due because their hatred of the Governor is too deep for them to see the light. Former Governor Sarah Palin is the new voice of Conservatism!

Sounds like a stalker to me...

By Randy Highsmith, Chairman
2012 Draft Sarah Committee

Many of you have likely read or at least heard about the Palin's new neighbor, Joe McGinniss. Who is Joe McGinniss? Well he calls himself a journalist and author of true crime and non-fiction novels, but I and many other Palin supporters call him a stalker. At first I thought he was just an overbearing lefty trying to dig up something on the Former Governor and her family for his book until I read this:

UPDATE: (via Politico's Ben Smith): I haven't been able to reach McGinniss, but did send an errant email to his son, the novelist Joe McGinniss Jr., who replied, "Sadly, she's right. We tried our best to intervene, but alas, the heart wants what it wants. We can only pray for him now. He's convinced that Todd will step aside and when the time is right, he'll be there, right next door, to pick up the pieces."

Wow, talk about creepy! That certainly meets the standard if you ask me. The publisher of his book is Random House, I wonder why they support such actions.

There are so many excellent Palin supporters and writers out there that write so much better than I. I thought I would share some of them with you. Check out a little bit of what they are saying on the subject of Mr. McGinniss by clicking on the links below.

    From Governor Sarah Palin's FB Notes:

    Spring has sprung in Alaska, and with this beautiful season comes the news today that the Palins have a new neighbor! Welcome, Joe McGinniss!

    Yes, that Joe McGinniss. Here he is – about 15 feet away on the neighbor’s rented deck overlooking my children’s play area and my kitchen window. Maybe we’ll welcome him with a homemade blueberry pie tomorrow so he’ll know how friendly Alaskans are.

    We found out the good news today. Upon my family’s return this morning from endorsement rallies and speeches in the Lower 48 states, I finally got the chance to tackle my garden and lawn this evening! So, putting on the shorts and tank top to catch that too-brief northern summer sun and placing a giddy Trig in his toddler backpack for a lawn-mowing adventure, I looked up in surprise to see a “new neighbor” overlooking my property just a stone’s throw away. Needless to say, our outdoor adventure ended quickly after Todd went to introduce himself to the stranger who was peering in...

    Joe announced to Todd that he’s moved in right next door to us. He’s rented the place for the next five months or so. He moved up all the way from Massachusetts to live right next to us – while he writes a book about me. Knowing of his many other scathing pieces of “journalism” (including the bizarre anti-Palin administration oil development pieces that resulted in my Department of Natural Resources announcing that his work is the most twisted energy-related yellow journalism they’d ever encountered), we’re sure to have a doozey to look forward to with this treasure he’s penning. Wonder what kind of material he’ll gather while overlooking Piper’s bedroom, my little garden, and the family’s swimming hole?

    Welcome, Joe! It’ll be a great summer – come borrow a cup of sugar if ever you need some sweetener. And you know what they say about “fences make for good neighbors”? Well, we’ll get started on that tall fence tomorrow, and I’ll try to keep Trig’s squeals down to a quiet giggle so we don’t disturb your peaceful summer. Enjoy!

    - Sarah Palin

    Hi, Neighbor! May I Call You “Joe”?

    Just Words, Just Speeches...

    2012 Draft Sarah Committee

    Just Words, Just Speeches,...

    During the 2008 campaign Candidate Obama made a
    speech where he stated, that with he and his campaign,
    words meant something and he promised a change in
    how things were done in Washington.

    A friend of mine sent me the video below this morning
    from Breitbart, http://www.breitbart.tv/ that serves as
    yet ANOTHER reminder that with President Obama
    and his allies in Congress it was Just Words, Just
    In this video he promised he would not
    use Executive Orders to circumvent the laws that came
    out of Congress. Yet with his promise to issue an executive
    order designed to appease a handful of Pro-Life Democrats
    who have held up health care reform in an effort to restrict
    Federal funding of abortions, he shows us he is not what he
    told us he was during the campaign. One way or the other
    this is more of the same... "Just Words, Just Speeches".

    The truth is that this President promised change in
    Washington, yet shows what he said to get elected is
    not how he governs. So yes it was "Just Words,
    Just Speeches
    ". I can promise you one thing, in
    November we will not forget. A couple days ago
    Governor Palin shared a link to a petition on her
    Facebook Notes, that serves as a reminder to Congress
    of that fact, we will not forget in November. I suggest
    you drop by and add your name to the over 300,000
    Outraged Freedom Loving Americans that say
    ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! You can read Governor
    Palin's full post HERE.

    I also suggest you read her latest Facebook note where
    she reminds us that elections have consequences and
    how out of touch Washington DC is. Read that
    note HERE.

    Keep Fighting The Good Fight,

    Randy Highsmith, Chairman
    2012 Draft Sarah Committee

    Connect with us on one of these Social
    Networking Sites:


    Be Sure to Add YOUR NAME to this petition urging Governor
    Palin to run for President in 2012. This is just one way we
    intend to show Governor Palin she has a large base of support.

    Setting the Record Straight

    It amazes me how often the media seems to purposely misreport events as they relate to Governor Palin. Yesterday I ran across a story online with the headline: "Palin loads up on freebies at Oscar gifting suite". I reeived a copy of this release below from Meliss Lemer Co-Owner of The Silver Spoon that sets the record straight.

    The "mainstream" media has been called the Lamestream media by many, THIS kind of reporting is a perfect example of why they are called that. Whatever happened to reporting the facts?

    Come on media do your job! Report the WHO, WHAT, WHEN and WHERE and stop the spin and personal attacks.

    Randy Highsmith, Chairman
    2012 Draft Sarah Committee

    Release from The Silver Spoon:

    Untruthful Articles Re: Palins taking free stuff in LA.

    The Silver Spoon, a company owned and operated by women and established with a firm belief in supporting women in business and leadership, invited Governor Sarah Palin and her family to participate in a charitable function sponsored by The Silver Spoon and the Red Cross to support the Red Cross’ disaster relief efforts in Haiti. Governor Palin graciously accepted since it was in support of such a worthy and timely cause. The governor arrived with a small group about 15 minutes prior to our store’s official opening; and upon arrival, she and her entire group gave generous donations to the cause. We offered to open early to accommodate her schedule; she did not ask us to open early. The other venders routinely set up an hour before the event opens, so they were already there when the governor arrived. No one was asked to come in early. When Governor Palin arrived, she and her guests made generous donations. I escorted her around and introduced her to every vendor, and they talked to her about their products and gifted her with samples. She never asked for anything but politely accepted the products. The governor and her family and guests were very gracious and respectful to everyone. We asked and the governor happily agreed to take a photo with the American Red Cross staff and the staff of The Silver Spoon. The governor stayed for a total of about 35 minutes, thanked everyone, made an additional generous personal donation pledge to the Red Cross, and then departed.

    The stories currently circulating about Governor Palin’s attendance at our event are total fabrications. Just one example of the many falsehoods is the ridiculous idea that Governor Palin walked away with 40 AIAIAI headphones. In reality, she was given two pairs of AIAIAI headphones – one for herself and one for her daughter Bristol who could not attend the event. The idea that she took 40 pairs is an outrageous falsehood. It would have been impossible because the vendors only bring around 100 items for the entire two day event. They would have run out of product after an hour of opening yesterday.

    Just to clarify things, the entire point of giving someone a swag bag is to have them take your product and hopefully purchase more. The whole point of giving away products is to “give them away.” That’s why we call this type of event style a “gifting suite.”We would like an immediate retraction and an apology to The Silver Spoon, its vendors, and especially to Governor Sarah Palin.

    Facebook Page "Americans for Sarah Palin" Are they really!?

    "Americans for Sarah Palin" Are they really!?

    There are many good Facebook pages out there supporting Governor Palin. A few out there seem to be all about trashing Governor Palin. One in particular that saddens me is "Americans for Sarah Palin". Seems like most of the comments there are nothing but anti Sarah Palin trash. I wrote their "Admins" on a couple occasions and have not heard back. I think this group actually started out as a Pro Sarah group but it sure does not seem that way now. They have nearly 145,000 members who I bet, thought they were joining a Pro Sarah group. I can no longer post on the page so I assume they have banned me. I had posted a comment asking where the Admins are and why do they allow such trash... I guess they did not like that. If you are a member of that page why don't you ask them why do they seem to come across as a Pro Sarah group but really are all about making Governor Palin look bad?

    I am constantly trying to grow our 2012 DRAFT SARAH COMMITTEE Facebook Page so if you are on Facebook please feel free to join us.

    Why SRLC Over CPAC?

    When Governor Palin first announced that she would attend the Southern Republican Leadership Conference (SRLC), rather than the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), quite a bit of talk ensued. Last month, the 2012 Draft Sarah Committee sent out an Alert announcing our support of her decision. CPAC 2010 began last Thursday, and the conversations about her decision not to attend began again.

    Now that CPAC has ended, we turn our attention to the upcoming SRLC. SRLC is considered to be “the real proving ground for gauging A POTUS Run,” as Ron Devito, 2012DSC supporter, points out in his article, “Why Gov Palin Chose SRLC Over CPAC.” He cites Politico and CNN. Both point out why SRLC is an essential place for potential presidential candidates to appear. Devito also highlights many of the issues that factored into Governor Palin’s decision to choose SRLC over CPAC.

    Inasmuch as this committee’s goal is to encourage the governor to run for president in 2012, we very much look forward to her attending SRLC in April and learning the results of that particular straw poll. In fact, what would be even better is for many of her supporters to go to New Orleans and participate in the poll.

    Read Ron Devito’s article here.
