Will Rubio Get "Palinized"? You Bet 'cha!

  When Sarah Palin came into the public eye in 2008, she was a breath of fresh air. Even though she was a two-term Governor of Alaska, being north of the lower 48 gave her some insulation from the dysfunctional circus that is the mainstream media. But as soon as someone took a long hard look, well, something had to be done about this! A two-term Governor who had taken on cronyism in her own State Party, attractive, smart, likable, happy marriage, nice family, and related well to ordinary people. She maybe was not the most articulate person ever, but she said what she believed and lived her values.
  No sooner had she been announced as John McCain's Vice Presidential pick, the goons in the mainstream media made a beeline to Wasilla Alaska to go through the Palin's trashcans. Quite a feat actually when you think about it. After all, how many of the Manhattan Elite media could even spell Wasilla, much less find it on a map and go there.
  They did their very best to surgically tear her apart. They used everything they could to make her look stupid, incompetent, a hayseed, a hick, a rube. Charlie Gibson and Katie Couric did their part to make it look like Palin was illiterate. If she did not read Time or Newsweek, how could she possibly be "informed"?
  Enter Florida Senator Marco Rubio. Rubio gave the Response to the State of the Union address on Tuesday night. He is every Liberal Democrat's worst nightmare. He is young, good-looking, smart, a family man. He has an American Dream story that is hard to top. The son of Cuban immigrants who came to America to escape Fidel Castro. His father worked as a bartender, his mother a maid. They knew America would offer their children unlimited possibilities. He articulates Conservative principles in a way that has not been seen in quite a while. And the scariest part for Liberals, he connects with people. He can look into a camera in a way that Joe Six-pack knows he is speaking to him personally. When he reached for a bottle of water while giving the response Tuesday night, Liberals knew that this was their chance. If they could make Rubio look foolish in any way, and spark national outrage over a simple case of dry mouth, well, they had better jump on it.
  Rubio is a rising star in the GOP. He is not going away any time soon. He is already being talked about as a possible Presidential candidate in 2016. That means, by next week, there will be a swarm of no-name reporters descending on West Miami to dig through the Rubio household refuse. They will hunt down old girlfriends, college roommates, and old political foes. All in an effort to discredit him, and make him appear incompetent and unfit for any other elected office.
  Luckily, for Marco Rubio, and any other Conservative contemplating a run for office, they had a front row seat to the media's attempted destruction of Sarah Palin. They know what is coming. They know what to expect. Think they are prepared?
  You bet 'cha.

  1. Hi Becky -- bit of a tangent but you must've seen this. The Pantheacon crowd is wearing the berserkr so I bet you have an opinion:
