It’s a Small World for Spanish-Speaking Supporters of Sarah Palin Channel!

Our post got a mention from the Spanish blogger who has referred to us as “mis amigos” (his friends) at A Time for Choosing.  He says that what I wrote about the Spanish media’s mocking of the Spanish Palin Channel is true, emphasizing in particular that the channel has been mocked because of the $9.95 subscription (that is in reference to the media’s snide remarks about paying the monthly fee for her (Sarah’s) patriotism. He adds that it is also true that where he is from, Spain, no one save for the readers of his Blog, Going Rogue Going Palin, would even know a word about it.  Nothing new under the sun, “querida (dear) Isabel”, he adds. “I’m happy with the subscription rate which is reasonable and I’m loving being a user.” If you want to play you have to pay, he says, and SPC is no exception. So, to the “Rojos” (the Reds):  “It’s been TO HECK with you long ago! I’m all in on Sarah Palin’s latest!” (That is the gist of what was written below):

A vueltas con esto de su nuevo canal de noticias, el “Sarah Palin Channel”, me hago eco de una noticia que me envían mis amigos del blog A Time For Choosing sobre la repercusión que ha tenido entre los medios de comunicación hispanohablantes este lanzamiento. Por descontado, ha sido nulo o, como mucho, se burlan porque hay que abonar una cuota de suscripción, dando a entender que no es más que una treta de los Palin para hacer dinero. Por mi parte, tengo que lamentar que en España, salvo los que leen “Going Rogue, Going Palin”, nadie sepa ni una palabra. Pero eso ya era de suponer, teniendo en cuenta cómo andan las cosas por aquí. Así que, querida Isabel, nada nuevo bajo la capa del sol. Por cierto, sobre lo de la cuota de abono: a mí me parece muy lógico, me parece muy barata y estoy encantado de abonarme. Quien algo quiere, algo le cuesta y el Canal Sarah tiene un coste, evidentemente. Así que, rojos, idos a la mierda; yo me voy a ver lo último que ha colgado Sarah.

[I just want to reiterate that by these posts I am not personally committing to doing versions of the Channel in Spanish on a regular basis. It is experimental. If there is a desire for it.. or a need, it would be enjoyable but it is time-consuming.  Let’s see what happens is what I live by.  No promises. Thanks as always. Isabel]

    Thank you from a non Spanish speaking Sarah Palin supporter who loves the Latin culture. As a matter of fact I am a huge Selena Quintanilla Perez fan and it doesn’t matter that I don’t know what she is saying because it sounds so beautiful. Viva la USA and GOD bless Sarah Palin.

      Thank you so very much. That is the type of inspiration needed to continue working in this effort. I humbly appreciate your kind words. There isn’t anything in my capabilities I wouldn’t do for this country.
