Open Letter Defending Sarah Palin Against Opinionist Eugene Robinson

Here is my response to Eugene Robinson’s “The Cynicism Express” (http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/09/01/AR2008090101716.html), which appeared in the Washington Post.  Please let me know what you think of Sarah Palin and my argument.

Mr. Robinson:
   Your article misses the key points of the Sarah Palin nomination.  Your mis-guided analysis also misses why so many people are excited about Sarah Palin.  I direct your attention to a recent Zogby poll as confirmation of the excitement generated by Governor Palin’s nomination, http://www.zogby.com/news/ReadNews1547.html
   Do you know who Lucius Quinctius Cincinnatus is?  For one thing, he was the hero of George Washington.   The Society of Cincinnati still exists as a testament to the influence of Cincinnatus on our founding and continued prosperity.  The point I draw from Cincinnatus is that sitting on a bureaucratic foreign affairs committee in Congress does not equate to the heroism needed to guide a free people in the face of barbarian enemy invaders.  We are not facing Aequians, but Islamists are just as intent on our destruction as the Aequians were intent on destroying Rome. 
  Have you ever watched Mr. Smith Goes To Washington?  That movie is a perennial favorite because an average citizen with minimal experience goes to Washington and fights for average citizens.  Sarah Palin is an elected official fighting for the average, hard-working, tax-paying citizen.  I wonder if it is because of her ability to connect with the American citizen that hard-core liberals like you have such a problem with her.  She seems to offend all that you hold dear as a bourgeois liberal.  Have you or your object of affection, Mr. Barack Hussein Obama, ever worked on a commercial fishing boat?  Have either of you served as an executive of a city, company, or state?  I may be wrong, but I highly doubt your experience.
   The fact more sad than your article is that you represent the corrupt, liberal media culture.  Things have changed all-right, changed for the worse since George Washington sought to emulate Lucius Quinctius Cincinnatus.  Rather than point out Sarah Palin for the hero she is and encourage young women to emulate her virtue you grasp at straws and seek for anything to smear her fantastic record.  Shame on you and your through-and-through anti-American, liberal colleagues.

  1. For a minute there, I thought you were talking about “OUR” Eugene Robinson. I didn’t think he could string two words together, much less a full article. But this Eugene Robinson, while a bit more literate, isn’t as passionate. His hate-filled diatribe doesn’t mention that we still don’t know who Barrack Obama is, even after the DNC convention. We are still left with the images of Rev. Wright and the terrorist William Ayers, who Obama still considers a friend. No, the Obama he’s trying to shield is the Obama who favors the Marxists ideals of wealth re-distribution and the Obama who will destroy our great country. That’s the Obama they want to keep hidden but more and more people will respond to the appeals by good and genuine people like McCain and Palin.

  2. I doubt if Robinson and his liberal friends even listened to Mrs. Palin last night. What I like about her is she seems to be a listener and not just a good speaker. There are too few listeners in Washington. Thank you John (not Jon) for that great catch! She’s from Alaska, so you don’t have to throw her back. In New Jersey, tax-paying sport fishermen have to throw the 17″ flounder back while big fisheries are able to keep anything that swims into their nets. Sort of like NJ politics, don’t you think?
