Writing for The Hill Bernie Quigley states the obvious:
Sarah Palin, Tea Party save America
This morning from The Washington Post’s Kathleen Parker: “Breaking news: Conservative organizations suddenly have found common cause with one of their favorite objects of contempt — the benighted Mainstream Media … Or as the tea party queen and former Alaska governor likes to put it, the ‘lamestream media.’ In a twist of irony, the two groups have coalesced around a common enemy: the U.S. government.”
The Tea Party queen here is, of course, Sarah Palin. Interesting, because Parker was among the first to announce, when Palin first arrived on the scene, that Palin was “out of her league.”
Many will remember that Parker, a liberal Republican, once bragged that she “Didn’t take part in the assassination of Sarah Palin-she led it!” Parker, a failed talk show host [along with Client Number 9] isn’t exactly someone with an ounce of credibility, or dignity, for that matter.
“The league” is what we commonly call the “establishment” today. This definition of the word “establishment,” which was popularized in the ’60s, popped up again (here, I think) to juxtapose and enhance the Tea Party. It contains lamestream press, the two political parties, and the families of influence from Eastern money and Northeastern states, the Kennedy and the Bush apparatuses primarily (Obama proudly walks his Kennedy doggie) and now the Clintons and their generation.
The establishment has flipped. America today has done what needs to be done and it could not have been done without the Tea Party. But truth be told, there would be no Tea Party today had there not been a Sarah Palin to egg it on and advance it.
Reports now are everywhere that “DC turns on Obama,” a headline today at Politico.
We saw it coming when just last month the venerable TV veteran Tom Brokaw condemned the White House correspondents’ annual fete, calling it “Versailles.”
Something in our nature makes it true when an old soldier, a “Gray Champion,” says it, steps in front of the parade and says “no more.” But we have been hearing this from Palin for several years now. Next year it will be different.
What has happened in America these past eight years is that the states have awakened as if from a slumber since 1865. A sea change has occurred between Hamilton’s American vision and Jefferson’s. The Tea Party and Palin have awakened Jefferson. It is a door that opened that will not be closed. The mainstream media has not exactly joined in, but it will. That is the next step.
Quigley goes on to compare the Correspondents Dinner to Frank Rizzo, the corrupt former Mayor of Philadelphia, who used to provide free lunches to reporters covering him.
Worth reading more here.
Sarah Palin would be the last one to take credit for the Tea Party, but she is absolutely the reason why the Tea Party has become so strong, and thrived, despite a most egregious assault from the Obama regime. Sarah has been out front taking on anyone who dare disparage the Tea Party in any way. She’s been out there fighting for Liberty and Freedom.
Sarah Palin is a force of nature, and frankly, so is the Tea Party. All of us working together can save America, and will!
