I got an email (along with about a couple of dozen other people on the same list) from a friend of mine. It was a cut and paste that has been floating around the Net from a so-called Alaskan that went to college at Bryn Mawr trashing Sarah Palin and the fact that she is not Hillary. I won’t grace my blog site with the letter but if you want to Google it use these key words: Bryn Mawr Sarah Palin.
What I find interesting though is how the Democrats are using the Internet to trash a choice that they are sooo jealous of. They had one of their many copywriters come up with a “letter” that will backfire on them. As they deserve it to. Their Party of inclusion is letting the country become aware they are one that “rednecks” are not allowed to be a part of.
So let’s see the definition of “redneck” from the Merriam-Webster Dictionary:
1sometimes disparaging : a white member of the Southern rural laboring class
Hmm…so the Democrats apparently have no interest in those voters. They just love forwarding this “letter” around their blogs and encouraging people to email it to others. I guess Barack and his running mate are so confident in their campaign they are willing to give up those voters. That’s fine. Their party doesn’t need them, it appears. “Rednecks” come in both the Republican and Democratic versions. We’ll take them all. And Oprah? You think your rejection of Sarah Palin will hurt their campaign? The opposite will happen. It will backfire on you, I guarantee it. But then maybe you want them to win. Is that your strategy?
I wrote a reponse to all of those people on the list. An edited version is posted here.
(Susan is a woman on the list that also responded)
A response to Susan:
I am a small town Republican Councilwoman in NNJ that is voting for McCain and Palin. I am anti-war. I have a Nephew going to Iraq next month. I spent my formative high school and college years in Western PA where venison is part of the diet, especially during Fall hunting season. Did I hunt it? No. But my cousins and uncles did and we were very grateful as a family financially struggling for free meat.
I look at Sarah and I see a typical American family. I see a woman who represents all of us in many ways. We don’t have to agree with all of her beliefs but we certainly can respect the choices she has made for herself and her family. I know I have. She is smart, down-to-earth, savvy and knows how to run a state government. In regard to the incident with her older daughter, I look at it as “there but the grace of God go I”. You can raise great teenagers but all it takes is one late night and an ‘oops’. It did open a conversation with my teenager and allowed me to impress upon him again our family beliefs but then again he is 16 and “knows everything”.
Oh and BTW? If I hear one more thing about how Hillary was “cheated” out of the nomination, I will scream! Her qualifications for Senator? She was the WIFE of a President who almost got himself impeached due to his inability to keep it in his pants? Yeah, that is a solid credential for Senator. Her so-called “health program”? Tanked. But she had the money and support of her HUSBAND’S cronies and they got her in. Then she runs a presidential campaign and allows it to get $20 million dollars in DEBT!!! And that campaign? She allowed her husband to sabotage it. Maybe if he had kept his mouth shut…And then she cried HELP and had to ask her OPPONENT and the American public to bail her out from her DEBT?? She wanted to run the country but couldn’t manage her own campaign finances??? Unreal!!!
And to the Democratic campaign copywriter/”Bryn Mawr College” writer, can we say lolol. How about “buyers remorse”?
The bottom line is, as Susan stated:Vote for whom ever you want but vote!
