Really, if Sarah Palin was such a bad pick for VP, if she's so inept, inexperienced and unvetted, than why aren't liberals elated at their prospects of Barack Obama winning the presidency now? Maybe it's because they're really kind of scared:
Democrats will launch one patronizing strike after another on Sarah Palin in the coming weeks, but make no mistake: Liberals are—and should be—terrified of the GOP veep pick, William Kristol writes in the Weekly Standard. Palin is “a compelling and mold-breaking example for lots of Americans,” with hard-core conservative values and a gripping story that could win the election for John McCain—if his campaign lets her be herself.Never have I seen or heard such a collectively ignorant and repugnant show towards a Vice-President pick. Indeed, the scum in the leftwing blogosphere are even going after 17yo Bristol Palin, after they spread rumors that Sarah Palin's 5th child was actually borne by her daughter. The smearing of Palin's daughter continues despite Barack Obama himself releasing a statement that politician's family members are "off limits" regarding political debate. But they don't care what BO says, it's all about preserving their immoral agenda at any costs. After all, they weren't prepared at all for Sarah Palin, a better (i.e. "safer", "easier to pick on", "clearer paper trail") choice in their view would've been Mitt Romney or Joe Lieberman as a staunch conservative like Palin represents everything they are against. Any wonder why the idea that one day she could be a "heartbeat" away from the presidency has the lunatic wing literally shaking in their boots?
“McCain's choice of Palin was McCain being McCain,” Kristol writes. “Now his campaign will have to let Palin be Palin.” Sure, old gaffes will be unearthed, and some Democrats are already predicting a bloodbath at the debate with Joe Biden, but “Sarah Barracuda” can handle it. “The left senses this,” writes Kristol, “which is why they want to discredit her quickly.”
