Hell has officially frozen over!! Ultra leftist Ed Schultz has given Sarah Palin the "Eddy" Award for 2009!
Welcome to the Twilight Zone! I'm not disagreeing with Ed Schultz at all in him giving Sarah Palin his "Eddy Award" for 2009, because he's actually right for once. I just never thought he would give credit to his and other liberal's most sworn enemy since George W Bush times two. I'm going to break this down to what it really means. The left has tried to label Sarah Palin as being the dumbest most clueless woman to ever step onto the national political stage. It all started last year and has just snowballed out of control ever since. What Ed Schultz said is very realizing, and he unknowingly contradicted the claims of his fellow Palin hating liberals. The day after the election, I stated that Sarah Palin wants to run for president in 2012. I stated the biggest obstacle to her running would be her serving out her first term as the governor of Alaska. For those of you who don't know why Palin serving out her first term would be a problem for a presidential run, here's the reason why. If Sarah Palin would have served out her first term to completion and not decide to run for a second term, she would have left office January 22 2011. The Iowa Caucus is I believe January 3rd 2012. Sarah would have had less then a year to organize a national campaign basically from scratch as well as set up a support staff in Iowa and other states. When fringe kook Alaskan Palin haters filed 19 frivolous ethic violation complaints against Palin, I believe it provided Sarah a way out of being governor in order to focus on a presidential run without being obvious to that reason. The legal expenses to Sarah were more then real don't misunderstand, but it actually played into her favor. In other words, liberals actually did Sarah Palin a favor by filling their ethic complaints. I believe Ed knows that as well. This woman from Alaska isn't as dumb as the left desperately wants to portray her as. If anything, Sarah Palin is a politically calculating fox with lipstick and a smile. This year alone, Sarah Palin revolutionized social networking in regards to her getting her message out to her supporters and bypassing the venom of the media. She has had a major foothold in the national debate this year on several keys issues just by typing on a computer. No political figure can lay claim to that. Her book tour was a record breaking success. Isn't it just a little bit odd that her book tour took Sarah to states that are presidential battle ground states? It's not odd at all. That was nothing more then Palin's political savviness at work. On her book tour, one of her stops was in Western Iowa. Western Iowa just happens to be the conservatives stronghold of Iowa. Ed Schultz might be a liberal kook, but he's not completely dumb, and he knows what any self professed politically astute person knows. Take emotion pro or con out of the equation when it comes to Sarah Palin. Her book tour allowed her to plant the seeds for a presidential run. In several polls, Sarah Palin is practically tied with Barack Obama. She has managed to repair the damage in her likability among independent voters that the media helped to cause last year. She has solidified her base as Ed factually stated. Her Political Action Committee is racking in money left and right. Palin even promoted Sarah PAC on her tour bus. Tell me again this woman is stupid. So actually she accomplished five key objectives on her bus tour.
1. She connected with her base "rallying the troops".
2. She sold a ton of books " made a lot of money".
3. She repair her image among Independent voters "key to winning a
4. She raised money for her Political Action Committee, which is "needed to
finance a presidential campaign".
5. She visited the states she would have to win in order to win the Republican
nomination and to win the presidency. "planting the seeds"
I haven't even talked about next year. I have a feeling that Sarah just isn't going to campaign for any politician who claims to support her values. I bet she will campaign mainly for politicians running in key battle ground and red states. I'll save that for another time though. I'm sure as the new year approaches, Ed Schultz will bring out the knives yet again against Palin. One thing is certain. As liberals, political pundits and the media are figuring out, they might hate Sarah Palin's guts, but they know they aren't dealing with a some clueless "Caribou Barbie" as they wish they were.
