Mark Whittington: They Can’t Stop Hating Sarah Palin

Posted by Dr. Fay on March 10, 2013


Insightful Commentary by Mark Whittington at Yahoo! Voices:

For someone whose political career has been declared dead, former Alaska Gov.Sarah Palin certainly still gets enough slings and arrows to suggest that someone still thinks of her as a threat, as illustrated by two incidents over the past weekend.

First up was Steve Schmidt, the former campaign adviser for the John McCain for president campaign, appearing on Bill Maher’s “Real Time” show. Schmidt, answering a question from a viewer in the overtime segment, suggested that no year, not 2008, not 2012, would have been a “good time” for Palin to be on the national stage,according to the Daily Caller.

Schmidt, who was instrumental in persuadingMcCain to pick Palin as his running mate, has been dumping on her ever since, at first anonymously and more recently openly, according to Hot Air’s AllahpunditAccording to Newsbusters, Schmidt is widely regarded as a source for the scurrilous book “Game Change,” which was later made into an even more scurrilous HBO movie that depicts Palin as some kind of psychobimbo. McCain himself suggested that the book was “completely biased and with unattributed quotes.”

Matthew Dowd, described by the Huffington Post as a former Bush strategist, appeared on ABC’s “This Week” and groused that Palin was “not competent enough” to keep her Fox News contract. He further complained that the Conservative Political Action Conference should not have picked her as a speaker at its annual conference while snubbing New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie.

The Hill suggests, however, that Palin, along with CPAC keynote speaker Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, will provide the greatest excitement that will occur at the 2013 meeting. Palin and Cruz may be disdained by inside-the-beltway chatterers, but they remain more popular with the common folk.

There is an old saying about judging one’s greatness by who one’s enemies are. The fact that more than four years after she brought the only hint of excitement and hope that the 2008 McCain campaign enjoyed, Palin still catching the snark says something. Nonentities and has-beens do not get sniped at on national television. People who are still regarded as a threat are. Once again Palin is proving to have the power to drive a certain kind of man to paroxysms of fury. No matter what happens, the lady will still haunt the dreams of the wicked for some time to come.
