The Party of Palin
The editors at the American Conservative thinks Sarah Palin will rescue us from the party of John McCain and George W Bush,
Congratulations on being chosen as John McCainâ€™s running mate. Itâ€™s an honor, if a dubious one. As you know, conservatives have reservations about McCain. To your credit, they have few such concerns about you.
Youâ€™ve given new life to a party whose brand was bankrupt. Youâ€™ve energized a campaign that was embarrassing its own partisans. Across America, crowds flock to see youâ€”not that old man who barely wheezed his way through the primaries. If John McCain wins, he will owe you, as the guy in the undisclosed location says, â€œBig time.â€
Wonder why Middle America finds you irresistible? Maybe theyâ€™re big Tina Fey fans. More likely, you remind them of the conservative values they feared lost: faith, family, independence. This impression owes more to who you are than what youâ€™ve done. But at least you keep Obama from cornering the market on hope. Conservatives have faith in you. Donâ€™t fail them as George W. Bush has.
That’s funny, because most of the conservatives I know think that John McCain will rescue us from the party of Sarah Palin and George W Bush,
You surely see that the Bush policies have come to a dead end. If the millions poised to vote for you wanted four more years, the presidentâ€™s approval rating wouldnâ€™t be 25 percent. This isnâ€™t because Republicans dislike Bush personally or disagree with his positions on energy and taxes. Itâ€™s because they know that his main legacyâ€”the Iraq Warâ€”is a disaster.
Thankfully, they donâ€™t think youâ€™re like him. They see in you someone like themselvesâ€”a patriot and a mother. The Middle Americans waiting hours to hear you speak donâ€™t want the United States to be defeated, and they donâ€™t want Iraq to be a haven for al-Qaedaâ€”something it never was before the invasion. They are pleased that the surge has made it more possible to leave because they donâ€™t want to send their boys back for a third or fourth tour. They want America to come homeâ€”not because sheâ€™s weak but because sheâ€™s wise. They hope that you are, too.
These people are very, very scary.
