Sarah Palin Still Rocks Our World Two Years Later

Posted by Ron Devito on August 29, 2010

Two years ago today, Governor Palin rocked our world when John McCain announced that she would be his running mate. For over an hour after her announcement, much of the World Wide Web was inaccessible, inundated with traffic all pointing to Wasilla as the world wanted to know, “who is this woman? Who is this Sarah Palin?”

Where Were You When…

Some folks such as Adam Brickley knew Gov. Palin and established websites seeking to have her nominated for the VP slot. For most of us, this moment was the first time we ever heard of her. In my case, I caught her speech on the radio just as it had begun, so I only heard her voice and her words. I did not know her name. I did not know what she looked like or where she came from. I would not find out any of those things for over an hour. There is a certain magic to Guglielmo Marconi’s invention in that it allowed me – the listener – to hear her words and her message without pre-conceived notions associated with looks, or even names. The radio stripped that all away.

Welcome Back Dad

What I heard had me transfixed within two blocks. I had to pull over to the side of the road. In Gov. Palin’s words, in her voice, in her message, I felt as if I was bearing witness to the resurrection of Ronald Reagan. When I finally did see Gov. Palin’s picture and read her biography in a foreign news site, and pieced together with her Reagan-esque message, I literally fell out of the chair to the floor in my tech support office, gasping “holy (two of the most common expletives)”!


Rocking Our World

“The world shook, the world trembled,” this RNC bio video declared quite truthfully. Her sonic boom certainly rocked my world; she stole my heart, and she divided my calendar. “Sarah may not be six feet tall, but she is a self-made giant.” Today, we celebrate the woman who to her supporters stands 10 feet tall and whose vertical climb is limitless.

06-4122 / AK (cn 4122) Air Force Capt. Jammie Jamieson going into the vertical. She serves with the 525th Fighter Squadron at Elmendorf Air Force Base in Alaska, and is the first combat-ready woman fighter pilot to qualify to fly the F-22A Raptor.

A woman based out of Elmendorf Air Force Base entering a vertical climb: there could not be a better, more providential homage to a little girl who tried to fly. Today Gov. Palin’s sonic booms make the earth shake and tremble. Her biggest one is still yet to come – in 874 days.

    Beautiful tribute, Ron – my sentiments perzactly!! I actually HAD heard of her – her name – in a very casual, off-hand way once or twice before when reading something about the GOP (I used to be much more active with the Party thru the Rep Women’s Federated organization) – much as I had heard the name, “Linda Lingle,” Gov. of Hawaii (and now forever tainted as the keeper of the lock to Obowow’s birth certificate – although it was also she, Lingle, who introduced Palin at the GOP Convention). In other words, nothing special and nothing approaching her status as a TRUE Conservative!! But, apparently, others had met her when they were either on a Nat’l Review or Weekly Standard cruise to Alaska – and the organizers had arranged for the (Conservative) GOP Governor to greet them at one of their “land” events.

    But – and this must be “the test” of all true believers – just as you had to pull the car over and confirm that what you thought you had heard on the radio was indeed true, I was instantly transfixed when I heard her first informal speech “out of the gate” as McCain introduced her. We, of that wonderful “Right Wing” cult, knew instantly that she MUST be the real thing to speak as she did – seemingly from the heart and with no political guile to inform those words.

    Yes, it will ALWAYS be that way with her unwavering supporters – UNTIL and UNLESS she gives us reason NOT to believe; but, as with Reagan, even in the most difficult times, we felt that he was being honest with the American people and was doing his damnest to lead the nation to be stronger and better.
