Time Magazine: The Brilliance of Sarah Palin

The liberal Joe Klein, of Time Magazine, actualy has an interesting theory on the appeal and the sagacious Sarah Palin.  I only posted the non-ignorant theory which compares her appeal and political instincts to that of Bill Clinton:  It's Her Party: The Brilliance of Sarah Palin
"How's that hopey-changey stuff workin' out for ya?" Sarah Palin asked the anti-élitist Tea Party élites — those who could pay $549 for a ticket (liberal lies -tickets were actually $349 to see Palin) gathered in suffocating self-righteousness at the Opryland Hotel on the first weekend of February. It was classic Palin, a brilliant line, brilliantly delivered: she does folksy far better than George W. Bush or any of the other Republican focus-group populists ever did. It was the signature line of her speech, which rocked the joint — and then, slowly, began to rock the national political community. The speech was inspired drivel, a series of distortions and oversimplifications, totally bereft of nourishing policy proposals — the sort of thing calculated, carefully calculated, to drive lamestream media types like me frothing to their keyboards. Palin is a big fat target, eminently available for derision. But I will not deride. Because brilliance must be respected, especially when it involves marketing in an era when image almost always passes for substance.
I have a theory about Bill Clinton: his philandering worked in his favor politically, especially with a demographic chunk that usually shies away from liberalism: American working guys. […]
Palin hits the same mystic chords as Clinton. A woman who goes to war against the 19-year-old boy who knocked up her daughter and then posed for Playgirl is far more comprehensible to most Americans than deficit spending is. In her Fox interview with Chris Wallace the day after her Nashville speech, Palin said she'd been focusing more on "current events" since she quit as governor of Alaska. She quickly corrected herself and said "national issues," but she probably shouldn't have: current events is American for "policy." It is the high school term of art for the hour each week when students are forced to study the state of the world. Palin's great strength is that the vernacular, rather than focus-group language, is her default position. At the end of the interview, Wallace asked what role she wanted to play in the country's future. "Well, first and foremost, I want to be a good mom," she replied. And then, in closing, Wallace asked, "Can I get a 'You betcha' out of you?" […]
But is Sarah Palin the favorite to win the Republican presidential nomination and therefore someone to be taken absolutely seriously? You betcha.

  1. Klein articulates this by shifting her politically, as more of a populist like Bill Clinton, whose persona was the focus of his electability. This is where Klein’s credibility is zero. No different than what LSM with willing blindness showed the public when it came to Obama in 2008, in 1992 Joe Klein knew who Bill Clinton was. Klein more than any single investigative reporter could have spared this nation the degradation and depravity of our modern politics. The Clinton’s have given us the War Room, Spin, and politics of personal destruction. Klein was witness to the philandering, the arrogance, and use of manipulating the truth to destroy ones enemy, even the obvious violence that surrounded the Clinton’s circle. Instead of informing the general public the truth about this less than honorable couple, he decided to give us the truth by writing a book of fiction ‘Primary Colors’ and resigned himself to be anonymous. The obfuscation of who the Clintons truly are continues today. Any attempt of Klein trying to define Conservatives or anything on the Right of the political spectrum lacks credibility. His political positioning as so many of the LSM are, sees all things LEFT as Good, and all things Right as bad.

    Klein and his LEFT counterparts have tried to “Dan Quayle” Palin, but they know only too well this contrived scheme to debase her has failed. She is simply too gifted and too savvy to be packaged and deleted. They know regardless of how successful they appear to be to discredit her, Sarah Palin has a foundation in which she has governed in a pragmatic bi-partisan manner, with success that not a single politician across the country could hope to gain her once lofty popularity ratings. Palin fence sitters have this concrete truth to which to jump and land their support. The LEFT has dealt her near fatal blows, but Sarah will always have in her back pocket that she left the city of Wasilla and the State of Alaska, better places than which she came.

    Curious Joe, there appears to be an obvious investigation to be conducted. Enemies of Obama have had the hardest of times since he took office. Gov. Blagoidavich after objecting to Obama calling his shot to pick his own Senator finds himself INDICTED. Sarah Palin since taking her shots at Obama during the campaign has had her personal finances challenged leading her to resign as governor. Now David Patterson who has ignored direct orders from Obama to not run for reelection, has found himself blindsided by anonymous sources being front page news in New York’s paper of Record, followed by LSM reporting of his soon to be resigning, without a letter of fact. It appears Rahm Emanuel’s version of the War Room has been up and running. So Joe, since you are always in the know, will we know more, or is another anonymous book of fiction is in the plans.
