The Problem with David Frum: A Post by Conservative Girl with a Voice

Posted by conservativegirlwithavoice on March 25, 2011

Palin’s trip to Israel was well received by the majority of Israel and a necessary trip for those considering a run for president. Many individuals are praising Palin for visiting one of the United States’ most trusted friend and ally.  Conservative Radio Host Mark Levin praised Palin for her visit to Israel. In his most recent note posted on Facebook, Levin commends Palin and takes aim at liberal Republican Commentator David Frum, describing him as a “disgraceful, petty, Palin-obsessed Washington-insider” and criticizing him for his recent disappointment in the fact that Palin booked her trip through a Christian tour group and did not take the Washington insider route and use the Republican Jewish Coalition (RJC) to book her trip.

Frum really does not get it, and Levin is right to call him out for his lame attempt to criticize the former Alaska governor and vice presidential candidate just because she did not go conventional route. Who cares which group Palin booked her tour through? It is clear that Frum is once again barking up the wrong tree in his awful attempt to pretend he does not care what Palin does or says, when it is clear he is obsessed with all things @SarahPalinUSA. It is not as if he paid for her trip to Israel. Then again, with his disapproval of her not picking the RJC, is he offering to pay for her next trip? After all, Palin said she cannot wait to return to the holy land. But I am not holding my breath that Frum would fork up much of anything other than ridiculous criticism.  Levin sheds light on Frum’s obsession with Palin picking a Christian tour group over the RJC:

But that’s not good enough for Frum. According to him, she didn’t use the RJC, of which he is a Board member, to handle the event.  As an American, Jew, and conservative, I consider Frum an embarrassment.  With rising anti-Semitism throughout the world and support for Israel weakening in the West, including among young people in the United States, he should be praising her visit and her commitment to Israel.  He should encourage more such trips and meetings by more opinion-makers and politicians, regardless of the group that handles these events.  Instead, Frum focuses on nonsense.  This is why Frum is neither taken seriously nor should be by a growing number of thinking conservatives.

Frum has never hidden his dislike of Palin, but it is his latest comments that are the most surprising considering the fact that Frum is Jewish.  Frum is yet another example of those obsessed individuals who say they do not care about what Palin says or does, yet whenever she does say or do something, they have to find something about it to criticize. This, my friends, is the number one symptom of Palin Derangement syndrome.  Mr. Frum, if you are serious about wanting to be taken seriously, then, I suggest you find something of high intellectual value to complain about. Until you do, I suggest you refrain from stirring up complete and utter nonsense and looking like a fool in the process! That…is…all.

Ronald Reagan’s Legacy Lives On: A Post by Conservative Girl with a Voice

Posted by conservativegirlwithavoice on February 5, 2011

UPDATE: Please visit this website to sign the petition to name the San Diego-Coronado Bay Bridge after Ronald Reagan. We only have until tomorrow, and we have nearly 300 signatures to go. Please the spread the word! Signing the petition is really simple and takes less than a minute out of your day!!! THANKS!!!

I miss President Ronald Reagan. As we quickly approach this coming weekend, Sunday marks what would have been President Reagan’s 100th birthday. As a young conservative and a self-described “Reagan baby,” I am always eager to hear stories about this dear man, father, president and all-around amazing American Patriot. Ronald Reagan will be remembered for many things- everything from how he managed to bring the country together during hard and difficult times, his conviction as held strong to his beliefs, the way in which he had an amazing sense of humor, and the everlasting love he and his wife, Nancy, shared. Everyone has their own favorite memory of this man and his legacy. For me, it is the way in which he valued the people and did everything in his power to put their best interests first. The Reagan Library is a great resource for those who want to learn more about President Reagan’s legacy. I have never had the honor of visiting the library, but it is on my bucket list of things to do this year. Until then, I will continue to read about his legacy and the important impact that he had on the country as a whole. There is a great write up I recently found on the Reagan Library Website that describes Reagan’s belief in “a more perfect union.” In light of this coming Sunday, I have decided to include it below as it is a classic example of just what made Ronald Reagan that “classic” brand of compassion, genuineness, integrity, and character mixed with that no-nonsense toughness that makes a successful president a great leader:

Given the dire state of the economy facing Ronald Reagan when he assumed the Presidency, it would have been understandable had he focused exclusively on those challenges. But he came to office with a broad agenda, and there were many important problems to solve. One that was of particular importance to the President was the how well the government served the people. He firmly believed that the government should work for the people, not the other way around. Governor and then President Reagan thought of the people as his boss, who, by electing him, had hired him to do the job. Throughout his career, Ronald Reagan was fond of telling true stories about the illogical and often mind-boggling – not to mention exasperating – inefficiency of the Federal bureaucracy. Although he did so with a smile, underlying the story-telling was a deep frustration. He vowed that if he ever had an opportunity to do something about it, he would. And he did. Not only did his Administration reduce the burden of excessive, redundant and unnecessary paperwork on businesses working with the government, it made changes that affected real people on a daily basis. When President Reagan took office, it took seven weeks to get a Social Security card and 43 days to get a passport. By the time he left, either one – or both – could be had in just 10 days.

As much as he used his own passport over the years, and as exotic and exciting as some of his foreign trips were, Ronald Reagan always looked forward to coming home. He genuinely loved America. From his beloved California to the New York Island, he was in awe of our country’s sheer beauty. Spacious skies, amber waves of grain, purple mountains’ majesties, oceans white with foam were not just words to him. It was how he saw America. He believed he had a special responsibility to protect the country’s environment and to preserve its natural beauty. President Reagan did more than just talk about it. The Reagan Administration was the first to establish a special unit at the Department of Justice to prosecute criminal polluters.
Polluters were not the only criminals who President Reagan intended to put out of business. Keeping people safe was always a top-of-agenda item for the Reagan Administration. It took a while, but in 1984, Congress passed the President’s Comprehensive Crime Control Act, which kept dangerous people behind bars, restricted the use of the insanity defense, reviewed Federal sentencing guidelines and toughened penalties for drug dealers and others. That same year, the President signed another very significant piece of legislation which made child pornography a separate criminal offense. The effect of the President’s work to prevent crime and put criminals where they belonged was dramatic. Nearly 2 million fewer households were hit by crime in 1987 than in 1980.

Preventing crime and locking up bad guys was only part of what President Reagan did to ensure justice for all. Another key component of his program was the appointment of judges who would faithfully interpret the Constitution rather than legislate from the bench. Of all the judicial appointments made by the President, none was more historically significant than Sandra Day O’Connor in 1981. When Ronald Reagan became the first President to nominate a woman to serve on the United States Supreme Court, he shattered a glass ceiling that had been in place since the founding of the country, forever changing not only the judiciary, but the role of women in our society. Little girls everywhere could now aspire to heights previously unavailable to them.

In many ways, President Reagan’s nomination of Sandra Day O’Connor was emblematic of how he viewed people – without an iota of prejudice. Gender, race ethnicity and religion just did not matter to him in the slightest. They were never factors in his decision making, other than when people were being discriminated against. When that happened, President Reagan was a tenacious fighter for equal rights. Under his leadership, the Federal government equaled or surpassed the number of civil rights cases filed by any previous Administration in virtually every enforcement category. Principal civil rights organizations received almost 18% more in funding.
President Reagan never forgot what it was like to grow up in a household with very limited financial means. He knew its impact on quality of life and helping the poor escape poverty was something he cared about deeply. Under his leadership, Federal spending for basic low-income assistance programs rose by 40%. The President also knew that a good education was the ticket out of poverty, and when his National Commission on Excellence in Education termed the U.S “A Nation at Risk” because of declining educational quality, he called for a variety of remedies including overall higher standards and accountability, parental choice and merit pay for teachers and principals.

Ronald Reagan was the first President to address the issue of HIV and AIDS. He established a Presidential Commission and consulted with Government agencies and private groups, after which a broad plan to fight the disease was implemented. Billions of dollars were committed for research, regulations making it difficult to get drugs to patients were eliminated and educational programs were developed, all of which were underpinned by a message of empathy for those infected. In a speech to the American Foundation for AIDS Research in May, 1987 he said:

“What our citizens must know is this: America faces a disease that is fatal and spreading. And this calls for urgency, not panic. It calls for compassion, not blame. And it calls for understanding, not ignorance. It’s also important that America not reject those who have the disease, but care for them with dignity and kindness.”

There was not a day during his eight years in the White House that Ronald Reagan did not work to ensure the domestic tranquility written about in the very first sentence of the Constitution. Forming a more perfect union was why he sought the Presidency in the first place, and was his “north star.”

Thank you, President Reagan, for instilling in us the value of character, integrity and the importance of aiming for that “north star.” The more I study you, the more I am reminded just how great a country I live in. Your dream for a better, stronger America lives on, and it is my hope that Americans will realize the importance of your legacy and the way in which you restored the American dream.

I leave you with the insight from Americans, who like me, continue to be inspired by this great man:

What an amazing political leader and role model!!! He once said that the American people see themselves in him… and that we feel as if he is one of us, how true is that? He was a type of father figure to so many of us. He is definitely missed!

-Reanna

I loved Reagan because he was always positive in the face of doubt and sadness. He loved this country more than most people and would not get mad. He used humor and commonsense to win a argument.

-Brad

President Reagan was the epitome of class, of skill and of true leadership. He did not side with the special interests or the lobbyists, but rather he stood up for every man, woman and child; both the born and unborn.

As someone from outside of the United States, I’m glad to think back a few years and of course not only think of President Reagan but of Margaret Thatcher too. They really were two peas of the same pod. Strong, fearless and determined. Through everything, President Reagan and America were there with their hand out ready to help us, and the same of course went for Great Britain. We were two nations joined under the magnificent leadership of two great leaders. So not only to President Reagan, but to the USA: Thank you! Thank you for always having our backs.

People often wonder what there is left to act as a testament to President Reagan and all he stood for. I say look around! The fact that there is still freedom in the world is down to many people. And one of those people is Ronald Reagan.

-Daniel from the UK

In 1986, I was outside with my friends shooting off fireworks. As a young twenty-something, we were just having a great time. I went into my house to go to the bathroom and didn’t come back out until about 45 minutes later. I watched that speech, glued to the couch with my parents, knowing that my friends were outside waiting for me. I didn’t care. I was stuck to the set, watching the speech. Once they started shooting off the fireworks in New York, I went back outside. When my friend Ed asked where I was, I told him about the speech. He asked why I didn’t come and get him. I told him, I couldn’t move from the TV. (Watch the speech here.)

-Patrick

President Reagan, thanks for the memories!!! I would like to close this post by sharing what a friend recently told me. He said that we could really use another Ronald Reagan. Yes… yes we could!!!

If Sarah Palin is Snooki, Does this Make President Obama the Situation? A Post by Conservative Girl with a Voice

Posted by conservativegirlwithavoice on January 19, 2011

As I was getting ready for work this morning, I happened to flip the channel to one of the most fair and balanced news networks in all of television news, good ol’ MSNBC (wink, wink). I had not been listening for a total of two minutes before Sarah Palin’s name came up. Liberal think-tank Donny Deutsch appeared on the Morning Joe panel and had this to say:

Why the fascination (with Sarah Palin)? It’s very simple, and I’m not going to be glib here. She is Snooki. It’s the same math. A younger generation– they want to watch this character with big character, with big hair who’s funny; you don’t know she’s going to say. It’s no different, but for a higher demographic! We watch her, she’s interesting looking… what’s she going to say? She’s campy, she’s kitschy, it’s telegenic, its television, its entertaining that’s the fascination. Beginning, middle and end of story, she’s Snooki.

Really, Donny, Snooki??? When you did not think the liberal left’s fascination could not get anymore creepy or delusional, it does. This clearly is because Sarah Palin is a political rock star whom the liberal left cannot help, but talk about constantly throughout each news cycle While objectively reporting the facts is one thing, making asinine comments is another. After Deutsch’s comments, Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski seemed to cowardly distance themselves by quickly moving on to their next topic, sweeping his comments under the rug, which caused me to believe even they believed his comments were both tacky and way off base.
What Deutsch does not seem to understand is that when he compares a woman like Sarah to a star of childish reality show, he is doing a huge disservice to both politics and women. By comparing Sarah to this reality starlet, Mr. Deutsch is basically saying Sarah Palin is only talked about for sheer entertainment value, not the intellectual. Would he compare President Obama to Snooki’s co-star, the Situation? I know this is a very extreme comparison, but it is no different than the comparison Deutsch made this morning. After all, then-candidate Obama based his whole presidential campaign around his charisma and picture-perfect family instead of his voting record and time as a member of the Senate. During the 2008 campaign, people were hanging on then-candidate Obama’s every word, fainting along the campaign trail at the mere sight of him. I wonder if Mr. Deutsch remembers this. Perhaps Mr. Deutsch should stay off the reality trip and stick to reporting on business issues, unless, of course, he is looking to be hired by an entertainment news agency. But then again, I do not think he would last a day with his ridiculous comparisons and utter disregard for reporting the facts and the truth.

Latest ADN PDS Rant an Epic Fail: A Post by Conservative Girl with a Voice

Posted by conservativegirlwithavoice on November 28, 2010

The PDS, liberal infested Anchorage Daily News is at it again. While trashing Sarah Palin is a regular occurrence over at this liberal news rag, they have set their sick, twisted sights on attacking her 20-year-old daughter, Bristol. The ADN has published a piece by Paul Jenkins, editor of the Anchorage Daily Planet. Jenkins has written a hate-filled piece criticizing Bristol for having the nerve to defend her mother and herself against the “haters” during her time as a contestant on ABC‘s Dancing with the Stars. Get this: It seems as if Jenkins’ main beef with Bristol stems from the fact that Bristol called out those who have attacked her and her mom. Oh, how scandalous:

In the Palins’ strange world, haters lurk always just in the shadows, enemies of all that is decent. They are out to sink Bristol’s boat, to make her mother’s struggling television show even more boring than it is — the high point so far was Bristol’s aggravated battery on a halibut — and to sideline mom’s political aspirations, and not necessarily in that order. (As a matter of full disclosure, I have a “Haters” T-shirt and am wearing it as I write this, but I know haters, and I’m no hater. It takes too much energy. I’m more of a cranky disliker.)
It is clear that the only delusional person here is the author of this ridiculous piece. Last I checked, DWTS had its highest ratings ever AND Sarah Palin’s Alaska was the most-watched series premiere in TLC‘s history.I guess Jenkins thinks outdoor lovers like the Palins are just a boring bunch of losers. I’d hate to think how he would describe himself. After all, what kind of a person would admit to wearing a “Haters” t-shirt? That’s almost as bad as someone waking around with the word “loser” on his forehead, but I am not putting it past someone of Jenkins’ caliber to do something like that either.

It is apparent that Jenkins needs to get a life. Did it ever occur to him that the Palin family are loved and adored by many? I find it ironic that as the mainstream, lamestream media find their readership numbers on the verge of nonexistent, the more the Palin family is finding continued success. This illustrates just how powerful this family is. It is apparent that Jenkins is jealous as is the case with so many Palin-family haters. Instead of writing about something newsworthy, Jenkins wasted perfectly good newspaper space to attack a young woman who never so much as looked in his direction. Yet, this how the typical PDS-infected folks seem to lead their lives now-a-days. Jenkins continues his rant:
Palin’s persistent use of the term now has been embraced by her daughter. For Bristol, one can only hope such insanity will pass; that she will see her life should be more than hating haters; that sometimes our worst enemies can be our best friends; that not all critics deserve “a big middle finger.” But for the lovely Sarah P., a woman toying with the notion of being president of the United States, it may be too late.

Her world is very black and very white. I just hate that.

If Mr. Jenkins had any class whatsoever, he would have realized a long time ago that the Palins don’t give a darn about the media and what they think. Bristol Palin is a strong, fierce, determined young woman who will do great things during her lifetime- no doubt about it. I think it is time for Mr. Jenkins and his PDS-deranged friends to find a better way to spend their time. After all, last time I checked, it is Christmastime, a time for giving. I suggest Mr. Jenkins repay the crappy ADN for publishing his piece by going out there and getting them a few more readers. Good luck finding those readers. Note to the ADN subscriber department: I have a feeling people will be too busy watching Sarah Palin’s Alaska to answer the door or pick up the phone.

It’s Monday Night, Which Means it’s Bristol Palin’s Night to Shine!!! A Post by Conservative Girl with a Voice

Posted by conservativegirlwithavoice on November 15, 2010

I hope you all had a great weekend and had fun watching Sarah Palin’s Alaska last night on TLC. What a great show; I know I speak for many of you when I admit that I cannot wait until next week. Make sure to tune in next Sunday night at 6 pacific/9 eastern on TLC to catch the second episode of the eight-part series.

Now, on to the business of the day…

Bristol Palin has “WOWED” America with her consistent improvement and her just-dance attitude during her time on Dancing with the Stars. Bristol needs our help again TONIGHT as she prepares to dance two dances in an all-out effort to make it into the finals. It is no secret that Bristol is the most-improved dancer left. It is also common knowledge that Bristol is the only contestant left who has no acting OR dancing experience. As the fabulous Kelly Osbourne recently said, “I love Bristol. I think she’s what the show is all about. She puts her heart into what she’s doing; there’s such vulnerability in her, and she gets up there every week by herself and does it.” Kelly is so right, Bristol IS what DWTS is all about. When I interviewed her for my blog, I found her to be so down-to-earth and genuine. There is not a diva bone in her entire body. In becoming a cast member on DWTS, she chose put herself out there, which illustrates her bravery and willingness to just let her hair down and have some fun. Sarah Palin recently tweeted some words of wisdom that Bristol shared with her when she first became a contestant: “No matter what I do, they’re going to criticize, so I might as well dance.” Well said, Bristol, well said. You just get out there and have some fun, and we will be there to support you and vote like crazy!!!

Remember, it is up to all of you out there!!! YOU can help her get through to next week. Make sure you watch the show and VOTE, VOTE, VOTE!!! While it is vital that you call 1-800-868-3407 with as many phones as you have, voting multiple times, it is just as vital that you vote online at <a href=”http://www.abc.com”>abc.com </a>and if <span style=”font-style:italic;”>AT&T </span>is your cellular carrier, text your votes to 3407.

“Hi, Rachelle. This is Sarah Palin” : A Personal Phone Call from Sarah Palin- A Post by Conservative Girl with a Voice

Posted by conservativegirlwithavoice on October 27, 2010

(I posted this post on my blog a little over a week ago, but wanted to share it here as well. Enjoy!!!)

When my good friend, Eddie Burke, was invited by the Tea Party Express to address the crowds as part of the group’s across-the-country bus tour, I was so excited for him. Eddie is a great public speaker who doesn’t pull any punches. I first had the honor and opportunity of getting to know Eddie when I was a frequent guest on his popular Alaska radio show. When he asked me if I could be a correspondent, covering Sarah Palin and national issues, I was so excited and jumped at the chance!!! I always tell everyone it was Eddie who gave me my first, big break. That is why is was an honor to serve under him as his press secretary when he decided to run for lieutenant governor of Alaska this past Spring. Although Eddie did not win the primary, he fought hard to the end, and I could not have been prouder of him. He truly is the voice of Alaska, and I know God has big plans for him. As the spokesperson for the newly formed Anchorage Tea Party, Eddie has made a huge impact and the popularity of this group is undeniable. Eddie’s work on behalf of the tea party movement makes him a perfect fit as a speaker for the Tea Party Express. I am excited that Eddie and the Tea Party Express are coming to San Diego this Thursday. It will be fun to get to see him again and to introduce him to my family!!!

When Eddie told me he would be addressing the Tea Party Express crowd, I was so stoked for him. He also told me Sarah Palin, a fellow Alaskan and friend, would be addressing the crowd as well. I told him that he would have a blast and to keep me updated about his exciting experience. I jokingly told him that when he spoke with Sarah that I’d love to talk to her. Little did I know that this little joke would become a reality. While at work yesterday, I received a text from Eddie letting me know that Sarah may be calling me before her speech, I was speechless. This helps to illustrate just how much of a real deal and cool person Eddie Burke is!!! Those of my readers who have the pleasure of knowing him know exactly what I mean. Here is a guy who is about to address thousands of people, and he was thinking about his friend. This is just who Eddie Burke is!!!

When I saw my phone light up about 45 minutes after Eddie’s text, I quietly slipped out of the room, as I was at work, and said “hello.” I was so ecstatic to hear a familiar voice on the other end: “Hi, Rachelle. This is Sarah Palin.” WOW, WOW, WOW!!! I mean, how cool is that??? You, regular readers of my blog, know how much I admire and look up to Sarah Palin. She is the reason why I began this blog and hold the political aspirations that I do. No words could express how much she inspires me. Although I have had the opportunity of meeting her before at her Reno book signing (I was covering the event for Eddie’s show), getting this call from her made my day. It was TOTAL AWESOMENESS, as I like to say and definitely one of the BEST… DAYS… EVER!!! Sarah was so thoughtful and genuine. I will never forget her words of wisdom and the complement she gave me regarding my recent blog interview with her daughter, Bristol. I thanked her for all she has done and all she will continue to do in the name of common-sense conservatism. She is simply THE BEST and THE REAL DEAL, that’s for sure!!!

I walked away from our conversation so proud of Sarah and so in awe of her character. Here is a woman, a modern-day political rock star who, just before she was to address a HUGE crowd, took the time to call this average girl- a conservative blogger, this Conservative Girl with a Voice. WOW!!! How ironic that I met her for the first time in Reno, Nevada, and she called me from Reno, Nevada…. I believe that everything happens for a reason, and God is using Sarah for His purpose. Her calling me yesterday illustrates just the kind of individual she is. Her genuine, kind and caring nature are three traits that all too often are forgotten in politics. We could use more individuals like Sarah Palin in the political arena!!! Thank you, Sarah, for making this conservative girl’s day and for all you do for America!!!

SEE YA THURSDAY, EB!!!

Talking with a Star: My One-on-One Interview with Miss Bristol Palin- A Post by Conservative Girl with a Voice

Posted by conservativegirlwithavoice on October 4, 2010

Yesterday, I had the honor of speaking with the amazing and inspiring Bristol Palin. As a single mom, public speaker and advocate for abstinence and the pro-life cause, as well as a contestant on ABC’s hit show Dancing with the Stars (DWTS), Bristol is a super-busy young woman, but was kind enough to speak with me about her appearance on DWTS, her advocacy campaign and what she sees for her and Tripp in the future. It was a blast to talk with Bristol, and I thank her again for taking the time to speak with me. Bristol is both charming and witty, and it was fun to share some laughs and light-hearted conversation with her. While so many well-known young people are caught up living the fast-paced Hollywood lifestyle, it is refreshing to have a young woman of Bristol’s caliber taking a stand and making a difference. I hope you enjoy reading this Q&A profile piece as much as I did writing it. Click here to visit my blog and read the entire piece.

The liberal mainstream media continue their quest to discredit Sarah Palin and her supporters, with so-called journalist Eleanor Clift becoming the latest journalist to take the plunge. Just this week, Clift wrote a piece for Politics Daily entitled The ‘Palin Effect’: Not all Young Republican Women are Buying it. In the piece, Clift goes to great lengths to argue that many young, Republican women do not view Sarah as a role model for their generation. As a young, Conservative Republican woman myself, I had to laugh at this notion. While it is no secret that Sarah Palin has a fair share of those who dislike her and her politics, I find it hard to believe that Clift knows anything about the powerful impact Sarah has had on so many young women of my generation. Before Sarah entered the forefront, I did not care too much about politics as a whole. While I always have made it a point to vote and keep up to date on the happenings going on in the country, I did not have an activist streak in me. Sarah changed all of this for me. When she became the VP nominee, I, along with the rest of America, was introduced to a woman who seemed to have it all: a great career, an awesome husband and family and a deep faith- all while leading a normal life in the last frontier. She reminded me of a modern-day Annie Oakley or Margaret Thatcher.

While Clift argues that a large number of young, Republican women do not feel inspired by Sarah, I find it odd that she is only able to cite one young woman who feels this way. Senior Leanna Cannafax, President of the Samford Young Republican’s Club, had this to say when asked about Sarah:

It’s hard for me to relate to her even though she’s Republican and conservative. As a young woman, I have to be open-minded to things I don’t agree with, and I feel she doesn’t even listen.

Hmmm, Leanna, I have to wonder if you are listening to a word Sarah says. After all, while governor of Alaska, Sarah was one of the few Republican governors who was widely known for reaching out across the aisle, listening to Democrats and Republicans. She was never a quote on quote “rubber stamp” to any set political party. I have to wonder if Leanna knows what Conservatives even stand for. While is a good thing to be open minded and unbiased, it is also important to stick to your convictions and fight for what you believe in. This is exactly what Sarah does day in and day out.

Perhaps the most ridiculous part of the article is Clift’s sad excuse for a conclusion:

I don’t pretend to have taken a scientific poll, but getting outside the Beltway and inside a small Southern campus made me wonder if Palin’s biggest constituency is the media, not voters, and whether she makes a better story than she does role model.

So Clift’s trip outside the Beltway suddenly classifies her as a scientist??? If you ask me, she needs to do her research and gather a few more sources before she even begins to attempt to try to understand young, Republican women of my generation. Maybe if she actually did her homework, she would she why women like myself look up to Sarah with such high regard. It’s called fact checking- plain and simple. Ever heard of it, Ms. Clift???

While Clift was only able to quote a single source for her biased piece, I can name a large number of young women who, like me, connect with Sarah and view her as a role model for our generation. For me, Sarah is a modern-day feminist. She is a fierce force to reckon with, and those who try to bring her down usually fail. As a great wife and mom, Sarah is able to balance motherhood with her career, all doing so while wearing a phenomenal pair of, excuse my language, “kick-ass heels.” Thank you Sarah, for being the mama grizzly you are, and for teaching this grizzly girl and thousands like me how important it is to stand up and speak out on behalf of the commonsense conservative movement. I’m not the only grizzly girl who feels this way. In closing, I leave you with some great insight from a couple of fellow grizzly girls:

For me, Sarah Palin embodies everything I love about conservatism and feminism. She is a self-made woman, works arduously for the sake of her family and her country, she does not shy away from her principles, she scares the establishment of both parties, she is unafraid of pointing out the fallacies of the liberal agenda, and always has a smile on her face when doing so.

Her message inspires women of all stripes to participate in politics and not relent. Mama and sister grizzlies (as well as those papa bears) are uniting for the common cause of returning our country to the common sense conservatism we crave and need. She is one of the many reasons I love to engage in political discourse on my blog. Thank you to the Mama Grizzly herself for being one of the leaders of this new movement of real change!

Governor Palin is inspiring to many women – myself included – in ways that transcend her political views. One can agree with her, or not, in that regard. But, really, her appeal lies in the courage and perseverance she shows in the face of very challenging situations. There’s something comforting about seeing a woman ‘just like me’ take all of the experiences of life in stride and continue making her own way forward. I think that’s a character trait any honest person should be able to appreciate.
