Star Power: Palin Takes Hollywood … And the Culture

Posted by Dr. Gina Loudon on December 27, 2010

By Dr. Gina Loudon and featured on Big Hollywood

The liberal media relentlessly criticizes Sarah Palin for her ubiquitous media appearances from hard news punditry to pop culture appearances. The Fox News analyst is “going Hollywood” with her latest stint in reality TV, attendance at Bristol’s Dancing with the Stars events. Palin is everywhere. More than any other political figure in modern history, the ever-present Palin has shown a phenomenal ability to remain relevant. Her savvy has left her progressives hand-wringing, potential presidential opponents sniping, and everyone else in America abuzz over what she will and should do next.

Depending on your point of view, she is either a genius or opportunist. Should a politician go anywhere near reality TV? If you are a crusty, wing tip wearing beltway boy, the answer is obvious. If you are in Hollywood, you are jealously wondering which agent she engaged. If you are in flyover land, you are withholding jjudgment.

What is clear is that Palin has tapped a connection with “real America” in a Reaganesque manner that makes any politician jealous. She understands the culture, and she knows what it takes to keep ones name at the center of conversations. She engenders just the right amount of criticism to keep her fans rabidly defensive. Her detractors wind up looking like yipping, hysterical Chihuahuas with pink, spiky collars in pathetic attempts to appear menacing. Meanwhile, poli-star wannabe’s from Michael Moore to Meghan McCain are salivating as their pathetic attempts to pedal their way to relevance falls far short of what only comes naturally to Sarah Palin—Poli Super Stardom.

She has it. They want it. They can’t get it. It is that simple.

The “It” is the Hollywood and new media age super stardom that tees up political success. Reagan started the tactic. Schwarzenegger leveraged it before he dropped the baby (California) on its head. But only Sarah Palin has perfected it.

When liberals hate her, conservatives become more intrigued. When they call her names, conservatives jump in the ring to defend her. When they call for her murder, conservatives turn all guns on her protection, her promotion, and yes, her presidency.

This has Hollywood scratching their heads. Who is her agent? How could she do all of this without proper media training? Why no voice coach, they wonder. Surely she needs some polishing that only folks in the business can provide if ever she is to make something of herself.

Politicians are watching too, wondering as they comb their hair in the rear view mirror why they aren’t the fairest of them all. The reason? They might be dynamic, good looking, smart, savvy, but they represent none of the cultural change that Sarah Palin embodies for conservatives. They think that their smart wonkishness, or their strong soundbites will win the hearts of conservatives, but it won’t. Conservatives intuitively know that politics is merely one front in the war on our culture. Hollywood is another. Palin has shrewdly tapped both and in so doing has unprecedented ability to leverage the media to move the culture, or vice versa. Politicians might not like the fact that Sarah Palin is the only one who gets it, but it is an undeniable truth they cannot overcome.

Those who would oppose her should be very afraid.

Palin knows that culture is predictive of politics and Hollywood moves culture. Therefore, as the country revolted against Obama Progressives and shifted dramatically rightward, the one remaining liberal stronghold standing in the way of a pure conservative revolution is the puppet master of culture — Hollywood. Sarah brought scissors to the theatre and she is challenging the master. Snip, snip, snip and it is done. Palin just took a leading place on the stage, reaching both red and blue state America with her unpretentious authenticity on her way to reclaiming our culture. The culture will be restored and the socialist folly will be buried in the tombs of bad scripts where it belongs. John Wayne style Hollywood is resurging, and America is poised to once again be Reagan’s “Shining City on the Hill”—a beacon for the rest of the world.

So that is why the liberals are so concerned that Sarah is taking Hollywood. It is not President Palin they fear, but a God-fearing, family oriented, crackerjack smart, female “Puppet Master Palin” that has them trembling. If she and her conservative, apple pie eating, patriotic cohorts held the strings, libs could no longer rule the world stage from the rafters.

Somebody get Sarah some sunglasses!

Happy Second Birthday, Tripp!

Posted by Dr. Fay on December 27, 2010

What a year it has been for Tripp Easton Mitchell Johnston!  He’s travelled with his Mom, Bristol Palin, to Los Angeles while she rehearsed for and danced on  Dancing with the Stars, and he’s also been a regular on “Sarah Palin’s Alaska.”    He’s also appeared on magazine covers with his famous Mom. 

On behalf of our authors at the Sarah Palin Information Blog,  I want to wish Tripp a very happy second birthday and many more to come!  May the Lord’s blessings always be with you, Tripp, and may your years be full of happiness and success.

Bristol’s House In Arizona Is The Perfect Base For Palin’s 2012 Run

Posted by M.Joseph Sheppard At Palin4President2016 on December 26, 2010

Speculation abounds as to why Bristol Palin has bought a 5-bedroom house in Maricopa, Arizona. Whether or not Bristol moves to Arizona to go to ASU is a sidelight to a possible overarching reason, i.e., Arizona ia the perfect base for Sarah Palin to conduct her 2012 presidential campaign from.

It is hardly a coincidence that one of her key staffers – her lawyer, Thomas Van Flein – is moving to Washington to work for newly elected Arizona Congressman Paul Gosar, whom Palin endorsed. Also, that Todd Palin had a long looksee at the area with the Deputy Mayor of Maricopa before Bristol bought the house (whose 5 bedrooms would seem excessive for Bristol and her baby).

Sarah Palin clearly found that McCain’s 2008 home base was ideal as a hub, and the electoral map for 2012 clearly dictates the same reasoning would apply. Obviously, given the enormous distances involved, Alaska would be too challenging, timewise at least, to run a campaign from.

Then, why Arizona?

An examination of the electoral map (below) route to victory for Palin makes everything clear. If on election night Florida goes for Obama, then Republican supporters might as well turn off the television, as there is no combination of states, subsequent to the loss of Florida, which can give the Republicans the 270 electoral votes needed for victory.

This suggests that a good VP choice for Palin would be a Catholic with experience credentials such as Rudy Giuliani, or an Hispanic Catholic from Florida, i.e., Marco Rubio. Both would appeal to the Hispanic voting block in Florida and in the vital southwest states. (Rubio would the obvious choice, based purely on pragmatism.)

Assuming Florida goes for the G.O.P.,  then North Carolina and Indiana should come back into the fold. Virginia is crucial, as 270 EV’s can’t be reached without it unless the Hispanic vote in Nevada or New Mexico can be won over to some degree. Given this scenario, the absolute key states start to unfold.

Ohio and Iowa are battleground states, each with its own peculiarities. Arizona, Colorado, Texas, New Mexico, and Nevada are states where the Hispanic/Catholic vote will be crucial. Having a base in Arizona would allow Palin substantial time to make as many visits to these states as would be necessary.

Palin has many allies who can take up the cudgels on her behalf too, which is a legacy of her brilliant endorsement program.   These include McCain, Gospar, Brewer, new Governor Terry Branstad in Iowa, and, of course, Governor Perry in Texas.

It is obvious that minimal time and resources will need to  be spent in the Eastern or Western states or in the safe states of the South and Mid-West. This is an excellent situation, as it allows for the maximum spend in time, advertising, and supporters’ energy where it is needed most.

Once again, Palin confounds her critics, who are dumbfounded as to why Bristol has purchased a house in Arizona. Let them continue to write her off as having no electoral skills – they will be utterly undone in November 2012.

Episode 7: The Palins Visit a Logging Camp

Posted by Dr. Fay on December 26, 2010

Vodpod videos no longer available.

On “Sarah Palin’s Alaska” tonight at 9 PM EST on TLC, Sarah, Todd, and Willow will visit a logging camp, where Sarah gets to operate a chain saw and viewers learn about what a career in logging entails.

Danielle Johnsen at the FishHook Road blog on SPAlaska.com writes:

Tonight on Sarah Palin’s Alaska, (9/8c on TLC), you’ll meet the hardworking folks of the Evergreen Logging Company. Sarah and her family will get to see what it’s like to be an Alaskan lumberjack and logger, which is probably one of the hardest jobs we have showcased on the show. Sarah and Todd get a chance to handle a chainsaw and the other scary accessories that come with the logging gig.

David Murray on the Broadsheet blog on SPAlaska.com  writes:

In this Sunday’s episode of Sarah Palin’s Alaska (airing 9/8c on TLC, of course), Sarah goes to check out Evergreen Logging Company’s operations, and gets to see what it’s like to be an Alaskan lumberjack for a day. In this sneak preview clip of Sunday’s episode [above], you’ll get to see her working with some heavy machinery, including a chainsaw and some sort of complicated (and awesome) logging crane. We’re sure we won’t be the only ones jealous that she got to use all that heavy metal tech, because it really looks like a lot of fun.

The summary for tonight’s show at the TLC series schedule reads:

Sarah along with her husband, Todd, and daughter, Willow, go to a remote logging camp on Alaska’s Afognak Island to get a taste of the Alaskan logging industry. Sarah cuts down Sitka Spruce trees and operates dangerous logging equipment on the island.

According to the TLC “Sarah Palin’s Alaska” series schedule, Episode 5 will air at 7 PM EST, and Episode 6 will air at 8 PM EST.   Episode 7 will air at 9 PM EST and again at 11 PM EST.  Episode 6 will air at 1 PM EST tomorrow morning,  and Episode 5  at 2 AM EST.  See the complete schedule here for reruns through January 7.  The final episode will air on January 8 instead of January 2.

A heartwarming anecdotal report by Larry Johnson at No Quarter  illustrates how popular “Sarah Palin’s Alaska” has been:

Among the more than 50 people crowded into our house were a small group of teenagers, boys and girls. I have a pool table in my basement alongside a nice 50 inch flat panel TV. Playing eight ball and watching some tube. Life is good. It is a sort of man cave environment. Three of the teenage boys were eager to play billiards and I obliged them. A fourteen and fifteen year old tandem of Irish twins played me and a ten year old boy.

[…]

When the billiards match concluded (yes, I beat up on the 14 and 15 year old boys) the boys decided to sit down and watch some tube. It is not your normal system and the remote is not easy to figure out so I offered to get them the channel they wanted. Imagine my shock when all three–the ten year old boy, the fourteen and the fifteen year old–requested SARAH PALIN’S ALASKA. I have HBO, Showtime, Encore and NFL Network.

[…]

Yet, despite all of those options, the boys wanted to watch Sarah Palin’s show. Hell, I did not even realize it was on. These guys knew where and when the show was on. That tells me something about the Sarah phenomena. She is resonating with a segment of society I never imagined would have a clue about her.

One of the boys did confess that he found Sarah’s daughter, and I’m quoting here, “HOT.” I found that reassuring in that one would expect teenage boys to be thinking about girls.

Democrats beware. All of your attacks on Sarah Palin and your attempts to demonize her or demean her intellect are likely to backfire. You know Sarah is a genuine phenomena when you are confronted with the fact that three boys with a chance to watch anything on TV choose to watch Sarah.

Happy Christmas to all

Posted by ehvogel on December 24, 2010

‘Twas the night before Christmas and all through D.C.,
not a pundit was stirring (at least not on TV).

All deadlines were met as the office did clear,
their latest opinions flung hither and near.

The editors all trudged to their favorite pubsite,
where eggnog and whiskey were poured through the night.

With Michelle in her Snuggie and Bam in his briefs,
they both hunkered down for a night without chiefs.

When up on the laptop arose such a clatter,
Sarah Palin had tweeted a new subject matter!

Away to the laptop Bam flew in a dash,
her new post would surely appear a flash!

As the screensaver crawled with The President’s Seal,
Bam swiped the touchpad to see what he’d reveal.

When what to his horrified eyes should appear,
but a new Facebook post Sarah’s fans would hold dear.

“Praise be to God on this wonderful day,
when He gave us His son to help light our way.

Though tucked in a manger with swaddling clothes
He’d grow to inspire with all that He knows.

As all Christians among us, The Founders would dwell,
on the strength and the wisdom His message did tell.

The message is clear to all who will hear it
our country is strong when we live in His spirit.”

Aghast and bewildered, Bam fell back to bed
with visions of Sarah still spinning his head.

“What could this all mean?” Bam muttered in shock,
“I’ve given them hope but my re-election’s no lock!”

“What message could ever be stronger than mine?
What hope can be offered for a free-market decline?”

To all that can listen, the message is clear,
we don’t want Marxism, it’s God we want near.

His message enlightens us all in our dreams,
The Founders knew more than political schemes.

They prayed to the heavens and asked for insight
to help stop a future destruction or plight.

It’s all there for anyone willing to see,
founding docs and their history is all that need be.

They’re anchored in praise to the God we all trust,
they’re honest and simple and follow we must.

Forget the last Congress and for all that it stood,
we must say again, no Marxists for good!

For all of life’s choices that bring good or ill,
it’s the freedom of choice that gives liberty still.

I’d much rather choose between what’s right or not,
than let D.C. do it for the pain that is wrought.

My holiday wish is to end all the mystery
that Bam and his cronies would do to our history.

We’ve struggled before and we’ve managed to mend,
we’ll make sure that liberty does not ever end.

So be strong in convictions that guide us tonight
and every day hence as we further the fight.

I leave you to ponder the truth of His might,
Happy Christmas to all and to all a good night.
