Sarah will Triumph over Media's Negative Images

-She is destined to triumph over the negative image that the mainstream media has plastered over her.

Sarah Palin’s Star Will Continue To Shine

Monday, November 10, 2008 11:44 AM

Thanks to media rogues and back-stabbing colleagues, many in the punditocracy are underestimating the future possibilities for Sarah Palin.


“A poll said like 80 percent of Republicans want her to, you know, become a leader in their party,” Paul Begala said on HBO’s “Real Time.” “And my answer was, and 100 percent of Democrats.”


Careful what you wish for may be the apt admonition for the liberal political consultant and his friends.


Hollywood agents, studio execs, and PR firms alike often muse about the elusive quality of “star power.”


As we saw during this election cycle, D.C. officially has become Hollywood East.


Political stars have all the glitz, glamour, and fame, as do top box-office draws. Like movie idols, they ooze charisma, command stages, induce lightheadedness and uncontrollable weeping among adoring fans, create endless fascination, grace magazine covers, shape opinion, set trends, and provide otherwise ordinary lives with excitement.


Of course, President-elect Obama fits this profile to a T. But so, too, does Governor Palin, or Sarah, as she is now affectionately known; first-name star recognition like Cher, Jen, and Angelina.


Evidence of Sarah’s enduring star power can be seen in the interview requests that continue to pour in from the likes of Barbara Walters, Oprah Winfrey, and Larry King. Even as I write, proposals from the biggest agents in Hollywood are being drafted by the droves.


Sarah’s emergence at the Republican National Convention would leave an indelible impression of an awesomely inspiring female leader, yet one so approachable. The public would swoon over the hockey mom with a baby on her hip who would ascend to the highest office of her state and beyond to become the veep nominee. Pure gold.


She would go on to draw consistently larger crowds than the man at the top of the ticket. And in that same vein, she is destined to triumph over the negative image that the mainstream media has plastered over her.


The conservative base, vital during the primary process, is in love with Sarah. According to a recent Rasmussen poll, 64 percent of Republicans pick her for the party's next presidential nomination, and 69 percent of GOP-ers believe that she helped rather than hurt McCain in the election.


After the hard-fought campaign, Sarah returned to Alaska. As she emerged from her plane, the crowd chanted, “2012! 2012!”


In his gracious concession speech, McCain praised his running mate as “one of the best campaigners I have ever seen, and an impressive new voice in our party for reform and the principles that have always been our greatest strength.”


The party’s new voice has left the door open for a run. When asked about a possible 2012 candidacy, Sarah told the press, “Plans for 2012 are to enroll Trig in kindergarten and see where the kids are at that time in their lives. They're going to come first.”


She added, dramatically: “We'll see what happens then.”

"Exorcist Fr. Ripperger is asking everyone to say this Prayer until the Election is Resolved"

A good friend of the Catholic Monitor got this from a group message. She said "exorcist Fr. Chad Ripperger is asking everyone to say this prayer until the election is resolved": Prayer of Command In His Name and by the power of His Cross and Blood, I ask Jesus to bind any evil spirits, forces and powers of the earth, air, fire, or water, of the netherworld and the satanic forces of nature.  By the power of the Holy Spirit and by His authority, I ask Jesus Christ to break any curses, hexes, or spells and send them back to where they came from, if it be His Holy Will.  I beseech Thee Lord Jesus to protect us by pouring Thy Precious Blood on us (my family, etc.), which Thou hast shed for us and I ask Thee to command that any departing spirits leave quietly, without disturbance, and go straight to Thy Cross to dispose of as Thou sees fit.  I ask Thee to bind any demonic interaction, interplay, or communications.  I place N. (Person, place or thing) under the protectio

High-profile Lawyer Barnes: Amy Coney Barrett would be a Disaster

High-profile trial lawyer Robert Barnes who deals in civil, criminal and constitutional law reported on Twitter that Amy Coney Barrett would be a disaster. The Barnes Twitter report shows that Coney Barrett has " sid[ed] with the government on the lockdowns, on uncompensated takings, on excusing First Amendment infringements & Fourth Amendment violations...

If Kamala Harris' Father is part White & part Jamaican African and her Mother is Asian-Indian then is she really Black?

  Is Joe Biden's running mate really Black? If Kamala Harris' father is part white and part Jamaican African and her mother is Asian-Indian then is she really Black? Reason.com tries to figure it out: Kamala Harris, Joe Biden's pick to be the Democratic Party's vice-presidential nominee, is the daughter of an Indian immigrant mother and a Jamaican immigrant father. Her father, as I understand it, has ancestors of both European and African origin. [Welcome new Volokh readers. FYI, I've been working on a book on the American Law of Race, with this forthcoming article the first relevant output. My own opinion is that Ms. Harris should be deemed American, period, but there is no such box on government forms, and if you decline to state your race, someone will decide for you… First things first. There is no multiracial or mixed-race category in American law in any jurisdiction. Nor is there an Indian category. So Harris cannot be legally Indian, nor can she b
