Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin has recently come under increased attacks from the elitist media over her religious and personal beliefs. This assault is being lead by MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann, whom I call the Grand Poobah of elitism, and his leftist lesbian sidekick, Rachel Maddow. The perennially-wrong Hollywood harebrains, like the atheist nutcase Bill Maher, have now piled on.
If they want the Democrats to win in November, they would be advised to stay out of Gov. Palin’s private matters. If they continue, all they are going to do is stir up sympathy for her from mainstream America. Even though they may not agree with her on everything, average Americans can more closely identify with Palin than they can with the Hollywood and media elite. I’m not a big proponent of Palin myself, but this merciless savaging of her character is making me angry.
What do these snarky secularists think they’re going to accomplish by belittling and lampooning Palin’s religion? All that’s going to do is make their lack of religious faith that much more obvious. And it’ll make the Democratic Party look like the enemy of religion. Is that what they really want?
And why are Palin’s positions on life, creationism, marriage, and abstinence education such horrible things to them? What exactly are they afraid of? I haven’t researched this, but I’ll lay odds that at least 50% of the U.S. voting public holds a view similar to Palin on one or more of those issues. All this disparagement of Palin is going to highlight just how out of touch her critics really are. But they’re probably too dumb to realize it. So go ahead, pompous punks, make John McCain’s and Sarah Palin’s day!
