Governor Palin pushes for Ted Cruz

Posted by Roderic Deane on July 24, 2012

In a Facebook post from yesterday, Governor Sarah Palin reiterated her support for Ted Cruz, especially since early voting has begun.

Support Ted Cruz

Early voting began yesterday in the run-off election for U.S. Senate in Texas. [It runs through Friday, July 27th.] Texans have a clear choice in this race, and I encourage them to support Ted Cruz, a strong conservative fighter who will protect and defend our Constitution and not just go along to get along with the reckless spending of the permanent political class in D.C. The high-paid consultants of Ted’s well-funded opponent are in full panic mode and have plunged millions of dollars into false personal attacks against Ted meant to dispirit us and break our conviction. We’ve all seen these tactics before, but together we can make sure they don’t succeed. I encourage Texans to get out and vote for Ted Cruz.

– Sarah Palin

P.S.: For those of you outside of Texas looking to support Ted you can do so by visiting his website here.

The run-off election is Tuesday, July 31st. Governor Palin knows how important this is. Do you? Please support Ted Cruz in whatever way you can!

A funny thing happened on the way to 2012

Posted by Roderic Deane on September 21, 2011

If you’re at all like me, you’re starting to get antsy about the 2012 election. The economy seems to be going nowhere, jobs are not being created and our officials in Washington are mindlessly playing cat and mouse games, or, as Rush calls it, “Chess”. The better question is: Who is the cat and who is the mouse? I tend to think that Washington in general seems to think they are the cat and we, their constituents, are the mouse.

Au contraire! (That’s vichy-speak for “on the contrary”.) I see things differently. I see Washington as the mouse and all of us conservative, Tea Party types as the cat. We’re just waiting for the opportunity to pounce, but alas, we have to wait until next year.

Or do we?

What should we make of the current GOP field? What should we make of the spectacle of debate so far? In a word: NOTHING! The current GOP field is wasting its powder in a comical, yet tragic, circular firing squad. They just can’t seem to rise above the politics of the establishment’s nomination process. Further, they just can’t seem to distinguish themselves to the electorate (us) in a meaningful way. How sad….

As we watch this tragedy of the absurd, we hear the pundits in Washington suggest that more fodder is needed for the cannons of mediocrity. If I were a potential candidate thinking of getting into the race, I’d take pause before jumping in right now. Why participate in a circular firing squad? Why not wait until the smoke has cleared and you can see who has survived the month of September?

No, in my book, this is a waiting game. Although it’s always been a game of “last man standing”, it doesn’t have to be. The person who defines the game in his (or her) own terms can win. It just takes a steel spine to believe in your tactics. It also takes an ability to convince your troops to keep their powder dry.

Sarah Palin is playing the most significant cat and mouse game in our collective memory. While extolling her troops to keep their powder dry, she has served up a magnificent feast of issues that resonate across recent history. With her Iowa Tea Party speech, she turned the popular narrative to a discussion about the perils of corporate, crony-capitalism. Those perils are unfolding before our eyes as we learn about Gardasil, Solyndra and, most recently, LightSquared.

Nope, it appears that Sarah Palin has hit the nail on the head. The current field of GOP candidates is well-advised to follow her lead, or, of course, they can continue to blaze away in their current circular firing squad.

This reminds me of a play, only this time, the title should be “A funny thing happened on the way to 2012!”

Meeting Sarah Palin – Live and in the flesh

Posted by Roderic Deane on August 18, 2011

I was referred to this post and just now had a chance to read it. I reprint it for you here, because it’s THAT good.

LOS ANGELES, August 17, 2011

The Earth shook, time stood still, and every other cliche not doing her justice applied itself.

It finally happened. I met former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin.

She may be the loveliest woman on Earth, or at the very least Aphrodite’s better looking cousin.

The morning in 2008 that Sarah Palin was selected to be Vice Presidential nominee, people who thought they knew politics expressed shock. She came out of “nowhere.”

(Which for the media is defined as not New York or Los Angeles)

Those who knew better had a different reaction. I exclaimed “They pulled it off.”

“They” were the devotees of Sarah Palin who sent me emails for an entire year promoting her. Palin right then and there showed she was smart, tenacious, and a figure who commanded a fierce loyalty from people who wanted her on the ticket.

Governor Palin lit up the 2008 GOP Convention. I personally witnessed grown professional women in their forties and fifties crying their eyes out as she spoke. Her convention speech garnered higher ratings than the eventual presidential winner. It was like witnessing the newly discovered child of Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher.

The left needed to destroy her since they despise minority conservatives, especially religious ones to the right on social issues. Yet Sarah Palin did not lose the election for the GOP in 2008. Lehman Brothers burned. She was a jolt of energy to the ticket.

In a very roundabout way, Governor Palin played a small role in my current success. She was supposed to be the keynote speaker at a major Republican Women’s function at the Reagan Library. She was unable to attend, creating a speaking slot. The original emcee became the keynote speaker and I was given 15 minutes. That speech launched my speaking career, since speaking at the Reagan Library captures conservative attention nationwide.

Yet despite speaking all over the country and meeting many politicos, until now I had never met Sarah Palin. She is kept on lockdown due to the many threats she gets from deranged leftists who despise a woman they have never met.

I have never been to Alaska, but thankfully she came to Iowa and I was there.

My trip to Iowa began with plans to attend the debate and the straw poll. I scheduled a few speaking engagements, including some with presidential candidates. The Thursday debate and the Saturday straw poll left a void on Friday. I decided to attend the Iowa State Fair, since Des Moines is only an hour from Ames.

While attending the state fair I heard rumors that Governor Palin was in attendance, but there was no way to even contemplate where she would be. Besides, I was busy cramming deliciously toxic edibles into my belly.

(Fried butter on a stick…yummy…once.)

After taking a bite into a Chicago-style hot dog, I heard a ton of commotion and a crowd of people. Everybody was trying to get close. I asked what it was, but I knew only one person at the Iowa State Fair would have that kind of star power. It had to her. This was quickly confirmed.

My initial reaction was “not now!.” I had just begun this messy hot dog. There was only one thing to do. Rather than savor it, I crammed it into me like I was Joey Chestnut on July 4th, beginning the mad dash to get napkins and make my hands clean.

I worked my way through the crowd (one of the only benefits of being short) quickly. I got within striking distance as security was letting one person through at a time for her protection.

I turned around, and right there was Todd Palin. I exclaimed “You’re the First Dude.” He laughed and shook my hand. I spoke really quickly, due to a combination of nervous excitement and knowing I only had a few seconds.

“Mr. Palin, I am a conservative comedian and I actually tell pro-Palin jokes in my speeches. May I quickly tell you one.”

He gave permission, so I served up my best.

“I like Sarah Palin, but I can’t stand her position on traditional marriage. I think it’s awful. What I mean by that is I can’t stand the fact that she is married to somebody who is not me.”

He laughed, and out of nowhere she turned around. She liked the joke. She gave me a hug and I asked if I may take a picture with her.

She said it was ok, but there was one problem. Due to sheer nerves I have not experienced since junior high school, I totally went brain dead and forgot how to work my cell phone camera. Her security guard tried to be patient, but many people wanted pictures with her.

Finally I just pressed random buttons until one of them showed a camera. The picture was taken. I asked her if I could really quickly give her a gift. I showed it to her security guard, and he saw it was safe. He gave me a magic marker to write my name on the gift. I thought I was going to just give the gift to him to give to her, but Governor Palin accepted it from me personally, saw what it was, and thanked me.

“It was an honor meeting you Governor Palin. You are awesome, a rock star. God bless you always.”

As I walked away, I realized that I had kept the magic marker. I now had to work my way back to the crowd. I called out to the security guy, “Sir, I accidentally stole her Sharpie.”

He told me to keep it. In my obliviousness I did not notice until much later that night that the Sharpie was autographed by Governor Palin. So she had my autograph and I had hers. I suspect I was more impressed.

Later that night I was in the front row for a live taping of Hannity. Governor Palin was the first guest. Sean Hannity tossed out footballs with the show logo on it, and he autographed one for me. Yet just before the show started, Governor Palin came on stage and greeted the crowd.

She saw me and said “Thank you for the (gift)!”

Yes, I was stunned. This woman meets hundreds of people by the minute, and it had been hours since she saw me for one of those minutes. I do have a distinct look with my Hawaiian shirt and 1940s style black fedora, but again, she meets tons of people.

I did observe how she was with other people. She is kind, funny, and so incredibly genuine. There is zero snobbery or prima donna in her. She really is as lovely as she comes across.

She really loves her fellow Mama Grizzlies. When they come up to her with their daughters, her face lights up.

So many women are jealous of her because men want to go out with her and women want to be her. She was superwoman, balancing five children while governing an entire state and running for Vice President. The men admire any woman who hunts what she cooks and eats what she hunts, and can look feminine yet still grasp that ESPN is not the Spanish channel.

She is what feminism should be about.

Yet beyond all of that, I can finally confirm that she and the First Dude are as nice in person as they appear. They really are what they seem.

Governor Palin, it was an honor and a thrill to meet you. My best to you and the First Dude.

As for your thanking me…thank you for all you do. You just rock!

Bloggers R Us!

Posted by Roderic Deane on July 18, 2011

I had a great show yesterday. The Roderic Deane Show is a work in progress, but yesterday’s show set a new standard for me. I had 3 fantastic Sarah Palin bloggers on the show. I first talked to Josh Painter, editor and chief contributor to Texans for Sarah Palin. After I was able to pry the microphone out of Josh’s hand (figuratively speaking, he called in), I segued to Tami, the force behind Moms 4 Sarah Palin. I ended the show with Adrienne Ross, who’s contributions at Motivation Truth, Conservatives4Palin, and this site are legend.

We talked about their motivation for starting to blog, their focus on Sarah Palin and had a great discussion about the Sarah Palin documentary, “The Undefeated“. I would encourage everyone to listen to the show. I had a phenomenally great time and I think Josh, Tami and Adrienne did as well.

Standing front and center, exposed and fearless

Posted by Roderic Deane on July 1, 2011

I saw the documentary of Sarah Palin last night. “The Undefeated” will premiere in 10 markets around the U.S. on July 15th and the timing couldn’t have been better unless, of course, it premiered on July 4th, but I digress. This movie will destroy your preconceived opinions of Sarah Palin. It puts her record as Governor of Alaska front and center and gives a very moving account of her rise in politics. More importantly, it gives the viewer a very studied explanation as to why she resigned as Governor. That segment alone will make you realize that your perceptions of Sarah Palin have been misled by the mainstream media and left-wing blogosphere.

She has done what many of us might want to, but are fearful of for sake of being criticized. That fear has paralyzed the elitist Republicans in Washington as well as members of the Republican “machine” throughout the United States. I was ashamed of myself when I saw the movie and thought back to all the times I acquiesced when faced with criticism of my conservative views. No longer.

This movie will inspire everyone to stand up for your beliefs and to stand true for the things that matter to you. Don’t shy away from criticism, it is the elitist’s way of governance. Changes are only made by going against the grain of those elitist’s opinions. Our current crop of politicians would have been laughed out of the Constitutional Convention in 1787. I can guarantee you that Sarah Palin would have been a welcome voice and active participant, so true are her ideals to those of our Founding Fathers.

Our Founding Fathers risked EVERYTHING in their pursuit of freedom from tyranny. The very ending of the Declaration of Independence states the following:

And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm Reliance on the Protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.

I ask you, who amongst the current crop of announced Presidential candidates would do the same? Who amongst YOU will carry such a devoted commitment into next year’s elections?

Sarah Palin is an example for all of us to follow. She has endured ridicule, scorn and death threats toward both she and her family. Would you be as committed as she in the face of such disdain?

It’s time to be front and center, totally exposed and totally fearless to prove that we can stand with Sarah Palin! We must not let her fall!
