Deal with it.
Former Alaska Governor and Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin said she hopes to again run for elected office.
In a Tuesday interview on Fox Business with Stuart Varney, Palin gleefully acknowledged that getting back in the political arena will “bug the crap” out of liberals and the mainstream press.
Varney told Palin that the “hatred level directed against you is a disgrace” and asked whether the vitriol has “driven you out of politics and standing for public office for good?”
“No, bless their hearts,” Palin replied. “The more they’re pouring on, the more I’m gonna bug the crap out of them by being out there, with a voice, with a message–hopefully running for office in the future too.”
Palin said the vitriol “invigorates” her to “defend the innocent and “work so hard for justice in this country.”
When Varney asked about CNN host Carol Costello telling viewers to “enjoy” audio of Palin’s daughter Bristol describing how a grown man assaulted her, Palin acknowledged that many families–including those who have loved ones in war zones or battling illnesses–have it a “heckuva lot tougher” than her family.
But she said that liberals who love Saul Alinsky want are “very intolerant of those who hold opposing views” and want to “destroy personally” conservatives.
Varney replied that the so-called “war on women seems like a war on you.”
Nobody has ever exposed the mainstream media for who they truly are, including their double standards and ugly biases, than Palin. In addition, she has also allowed opportunistic and jealous Republicans–especially insecure male losers who may have unresolved issues from their past that they can’t seem to let go–who want nothing more in life than to be patted on the head by the liberal mainstream media members to show their true colors. Too often, those aforementioned Republicans have criticized Palin more viciously than any Democrat, as if they are desperately trying to make up for their deficiencies. For just that alone, she has been invaluable and indispensable.
Palin appeals to hard-core conservatives, working-class Reagan Democrats of all backgrounds, especially those in the exurbs, and Americans on the frontier with a libertarian streak in the mountain time zones. Whether she runs for governor, Senator, or President, nobody on the right will have a higher floor of support to begin with than Palin, whom establishment Republican moneymen have always feared because she can raise enough money to “burn a wet mule,” as Haley Barbour once conceded. Translation: she doesn’t need political power brokers.
While D.C. hacks and pipsqueaks love to talk about process and minutiae–and then wonder whey Americans tune them out–Palin has made it her mission to call out the bipartisan crony capitalism that the permanent political class wants to perpetuate. She viscerally understands that working-class Americans of all backgrounds think the game is rigged and elections don’t matter when establishment Democrats run against establishment Republicans. Working-class Americans know in these elections they will have to choose between the lesser of two evils, if they decide to vote at all, because they know they are being offered a choice between huge government and big government or massive amnesty and amnesty-lite.
The mainstream media hates Palin because she–and her star power–doesn’t need them to get her message out like more milquetoast politicians such as Tim Pawlenty and Martin O’Malley do. The permanent political class–and self-hating Republicans who crave affirmation from the mainstream press–hate Palin because she is not beholden to their racket. And that is why she will always resonate with a public that distrusts the media and the permanent political class at record levels.
