To Speak Any Shade of Ill About Sarah Palin is Tatamount to Slamming a Saint

Posted on September 26, 2011


What is it about the tried and true followers of Sarah Palin?  Make even the mildest criticism of her and it is as if you have slammed a saint.  You are called not only unreasonable but out of the loop.  Mental doors shut and you know this or that person will never again take what you have to say seriously.

Let’s be  honest about her good points and her not so good.  To her credit is her stand on energy in the US.  We need to responsibly develop it.  Not to do anything is a form of suicide and she has seen this first hand in Alaska.

She has kept the faith in all other matters to do with conservatism in finance and in the role of government in the lives of the people.   But Sarah Palin is only human and it was her more than human side that led her to go “rogue” and leave the governorship of Alaska prematurely

She has gone rogue as she has said. But most recently her rogue nature has caused her to shadow the current campaign rather than joining in. I am not sure many voters will appreciate her watching this spectacle and then jumping in.

So those of us who admire her good qualities but are of the opinion that her political misdeeds will come to haunt her incur the wrath of the Palin preachers.  They preach and they preach and before long you find yourself looking for a confessional even if you are not part of the church at Rome.

One  hopes the faithful will eventually see that an opinion is neither a put-down nor an act of war and that is is possible for loyal Republicans and patriots to respectfully disagree.  As for SamHenry, the bottom line is:

This above all: to thine own self be true,
And it must follow, as the night the day,
Thou canst not then be false to any man.  Hamlet Act I, scene 3, 78-82

Can America afford a rogue President?  It seems we have one now.

To be or not to be 2012.
