Today Sarah Palin answered a question that most of the potential 2012 GOP candidates will try to sidestep at all cost.

Sarah Palin was a guest on the Rush Limbaugh show today. All in all, I have to say it was a good interview. Her interview with Limbaugh wasn't a typical tabloid type interview like Sarah had with Oprah and Barbara Walters. Sarah had a chance to tell Rush's audience where she stands on certain poltical issues. There was one question Rush asked that many within the Republican Party today and most of the top tier 2008 GOP candidates avoided answering like the plague. Rush asked Sarah as his last question of the interview how she felt about illegal immigration. Most Republican candidates try desperately to side step that question. Sarah on the other hand tackled it straight on. She said that the word illegal had meaning for a reason. Her answer was very very important. Last year during the Republican primaries, the top three Republican candidates within the top tier didn't come out and address their position on illegal immigration. MItt Romney, Mike Huckabee and John McCain gave very vague answers. Fred Thompson was the only top tier candidate that come out in support of a strong border policy. Duncan Hunter and Tom Tancredo were two other candidates that shared the position on a strong border policy, but they never made it out of the second tier level of candidates. People seem to forget that John McCain openly supported and worked hand and hand with George Bush back in 2005 to push for an amnesty bill. It was McCain, Lindsey Graham and George Bush who called grass root conservatives "nativists" for merely wanting them to secure the border. I've said on many occasions that a lot of conservatives stayed home on election day, because they still remembered John McCain pushing for the amnesty bill. It was the act of McCain, Graham, Bush and others that helped Democrats to win control of congress just one year later. Sarah Palin answered directly and without double talk the most taboo question that a Republican In Name Only would run for the hills if asked. Palin's interview with Rush is going to go a long way in solidifying her support among grass root conservatives, it may even sway independent voters her way. Since Sarah was John McCain's running mate last year, her positions pretty much had to mirror McCain's. As people hear Sarah Palin in her own words talk about how she feels about certain issues and what her solutions are to those issues, the anti Palin media won't be able to use their typical bag of attack, discredit and smear tactics as they are using now.

Go Sarah!Just keep smiling!
For the Americans who care:
The Progressive Left and the Islamo-fascist have a truce. First destroy Western society then they can fight each other for supreme control of the slaves, err people.

The one thing both hate is Freedom of Speech. Islam 5:101,2

I will never back down and neither should anyone.

I hope Sarah will run for President, and stop the attack on Free Speech. One of my teachers, a man who risks his life every day trying to alert people of the Islamic threat was attacked last night in NYU.

Is this opinion in spite of or because of the fact that she falsely suggested to El Rushbo that Americans could "face jail time as punishment" if they don't buy insurance.

She is either too stupid for grown-up politics, or she simply is a LIAR.

Either way, she's a mess.
