Left Media Calling For Palin’s Arizona Statement So They Can Jeer She’s Taking Advantage of It

Posted by M.Joseph Sheppard At Palin4President2016 on January 11, 2011

As Kathryn Jean Lopez at The Corner puts it:

“Call me naive, but maybe there is no grand political strategy here. Maybe Sarah Palin just realizes this is not about her — and she’s not going to take the bait from a media that insists otherwise. No doubt she’ll talk about it more after funerals and after Rep. Giffords is not in danger. But it would be hubris to walk onto Hannity a night or two after a shooting and buy into the idea that the political world somehow revolves around her. I don’t get the impression she thinks that way. I get the impression MSNBC and others are desperate for it to be that way.”

And as if to agree with that statement (and the Morning Joe crew insisting that Palin come out with a public statement), here is MSNBC’s “First Read”:

“Palin’s silence:

By the way, the silence from Sarah Palin — besides her offer of condolences on Saturday and her e-mail to Glenn Beck — has been deafening. As Republican David Frum said in Andrea Mitchell’s “TODAY” piece this morning, “You can hunker down, and you say, ‘It’s not my fault.” And, of course, she’s right — it’s not her fault. Or you can be bigger than that. You can go out and … you can be the leader that Americans want to see.” In many ways, this moment is a presidential test, and she’s chosen to ignore it so far.”

The New York Times comments that: “Palin, amid criticism, stays in electronic comfort zone” and adds criticism of her from the ubiquitous and always helpful unnamed “some Republicans”.

Whilst Jeremy P. Jacobs at the National Journal calls the Arizona tragedy “A significant PR disaster” for Palin-that’s the media showing all heart,  isn’t it,  and showing what they think is the real takeaway from the tragedy.

Lets get real here. If Palin had not maintained the dignified silence she has so far and had made any statement, apart from the truly saddened one she did on Facebook, there would have been howls of rage from the left. She would have been accused of “feasting on tragedy,” using someone’s death “which she caused’ for her own rotten ends- “has this woman no shame” – and, well you can write these insanities yourself.

Even the personal e-mail Palin sent to Glen Beck, which was an exercise in caring dignity, and may or may not have been intended for wider dissemination has come under fire. When the time is right, which this particularly sensitive woman will feel, Palin will make a statement commensurate with the dignity of the situation.

There is no doubt whatsoever that the rabid left will parse every word and find something to criticize-she is, frankly, damned if she does and damned if she doesn’t in their eyes.

The final judges on this will be the wider public, and I remain confident that all the smears and attacks against her will be seen for what they are by a public who is not fooled by this campaign of hate.

    Palin is just not playing it by the Looney Left’s playbook! As always, she’s “doing” what she intends to do in her way and in her good time. And can’t you just see that now that, while the first volleys have been sent from stern to starboard and Rush has responded with appropriate & welcome bombast, Palin is taking this “time out” to do what she has to do and will return to the public arena at an appropriate – and productive – time. No unnecssary steps, no missteps and no faltering steps for this sharp cookie.

    She is SO above and away from the leftist riff-raff that she continues to leave the rest of the pack way in the back of the field! Some, in fact, have never left the starting gate (not that anyone is paying any attention to anyone but her!!).

    By the time she returns to her FOX commentary role (or, perhaps, a speech to a pro-life group – wouldn’t THAT just cook their goose?!?), the sound and the fury will have mostly been spent – and the world will return to other matters. Palin will only have missed a bunch of brickbats, lib[redacted] shoes and foul-mouthed profanities from the mental midgets among the so-called (but totally misnamed!) “ellites!”

    Run, Sarah, run!!
