For the same reason voters flocked to the voting booths for Barack Obama, Tea Party fanatics flock to the feet of Sarah Palin. Forget the fact that she couldn’t even tell Katie Couric what newspaper she reads, that she quit her job as Alaska’s governor, or while she was busy blasting the president for using a teleprompter she was using crib notes.
Here is the basic point, and I don’t mean to offend anyone, even though there may be those who read this next line and will say, “he’s racist,” or “that’s just not true.” A lot, not all people, voted for Barack Obama thanks to his skin color. Think of it, the first black male president.
Sarah Palin supporters want Sarah in the White House for a number of reasons: the Republicans want to make history of their own besides scandal, she good-looking, and she’s, well…not Hillary Clinton.
As a right-wing radio host Matt Walsh found out, you don’t mess with Sarah Palin.
“Seriously, what everybody needs to understand here is that, number one, Republicans are not the answer,” he’d said. “They are not, period. Do not vote for a Republican. Please, I beg you, do not vote for a Republican. What has a Republican done for you? Everyone says, ‘Well, at least they’re not as bad as Democrats.’ Yes they are! They’re all bad!”
“Vote for an independent and please, God almighty, do not vote for Sarah Palin. Please dear God do not vote for Sarah Palin. She has not shown us anything. I know everyone’s very excited about her, she’s probably a very nice woman, but she is not the answer.”
The crowd began to boo.
“You’re going to boo me off?” Walsh asked. “You’re going to boo me off because I’m talking about Sarah Palin? Then you’re the problem.”
“You’re a punk!” a man yelled.
“I’m a punk? Walsh asked. “Because I’m talking about Sarah Palin?”
“She’s more of a man than you are!” another protester cried out.
I don’t think that, that is something to brag about. Ann Coulter all over again.
“Sir, you need to back off and let me have my time up here, okay?” Walsh fired back. “You’re the problem, sir. I’m a punk and you’re an old, senile fart, now back off. … I’m not sure why I can’t point out the fact that Sarah Palin is a Republican and is part of the system. She couldn’t even finish her time as Governor of Alaska! I know that’s because she was being attacked but she’s gonna be attacked ten-fold when she runs for office. I’m advocating that we put real independents in office.”
To make a long story short, Matt Walsh was called an infiltrator because he questioned Queen Palin. A movement that was originated in 2008 for the support of Ron Paul, the Tea Parties have been infiltrated by neoconservatives. http://rawstory.com/2010/02/paul-cautions-neocon-influence-infiltrating-tea-parties/
Sarah Palin has also given speeches at the Tea Parties riddled with inaccuracies. http://rawstory.com/2010/02/palins-national-security-claims-tea-party-speech-debunked/
