Don’t Pee on My Leg and Tell Me It’s Raining

Don’t pee on my leg and tell me it’s raining. Those words, used as the title of a book authored by Judith Sheindlin of "Judge Judy" fame, seem particularly appropriate of late. Some leftists must think the rest of us are crazy, stupid, or both.

Let’s begin first with their continued and beefed up efforts to convince the American public that they are hoping and praying for Governor Palin to become the 2012 presidential nominee because, they say, it’ll guarantee President Obama’s re-election. They say this, mind you, all while doing everything in their power to destroy her chances, to run her off before she even declares her intentions. But we’re to believe she sparks no fear in them, for they know she could not destroy the President in an election?

If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a hundred times: as a coach, I never spent one moment focusing on a nonessential opposing player, I’ve never devised a game plan around a bench warmer, and I’ve never run a box-and-one defense against an offensive non-threat. It would have been a waste of time, energy, and resources, allowing the real threat to wipe the floor with us as we messed around with a garbage-time player. The PDS sufferers, however, have coordinated a full-blown strategy to take down Governor Palin–to assault her character, distort her record, and attack her family. But they want us to believe she’s a non-factor. Don’t pee on my leg and tell me it’s raining.

Second, President Obama has stated, as have members of his administration, that he doesn’t ever think about Governor Palin. However, he makes a speech to the nation on energy this week and alludes to her drill, baby, drill mantra. If he can do so without thinking about her, he surely is the Messiah the left has made him out to be–and we know that’s not true. The truth is the Governor’s name is almost synonymous with energy expertise. President Obama would have us believe, it seems, that her outspoken advocacy for energy independence and her energy credentials have gone unnoticed by the White House–even while he quotes her during his speech to the nation. Don’t pee on my leg and tell me it’s raining.

Furthermore, what about those looking to portray Governor Palin as a hypocrite because of recent talks about a tax credit for film production in Alaska? Notice how some are gloating over this non-story set straight by the Governor herself. These are some of the self-same people who insist she lacks the intelligence to be leader of the free world, yet they expect her to be smart–and clairvoyant–enough to have known years ago that a show called "Sarah Palin’s Alaska" would hit TLC/Discovery Channel. She addressed this herself:

The accusation hinges on the notion that I signed the legislation into law knowing that it would personally benefit me. That’s totally absurd. It wasn’t even my bill, and obviously I had no intention of benefiting from it when I signed it into law in 2008 because I had no idea I would be involved in a documentary series years later.

So one moment she knows nothing, and the next she’s a prophetic genius. And they want us to believe both scenerios, apparently? Not to mention, they disingenuously twist the facts to suggest that the law proves Governor Palin, the obvious common sense conservative that she is, really is some kind of big government proponent. Again, don’t pee on my leg and tell me it’s raining.

The vast majority of Americans are neither stupid nor crazy. We know that the ceaseless efforts to stop Governor Palin exist because she’s fully capable of stopping President Obama. There’s a reason they’re so viciously targeting her rather than Tim Pawlenty, for example, who has already made it clear he’s running. They insist, however, that they’d quickly join us in a sign-waving "Run, Sarah, Run" rally because it would be like Christmas morning for Democrats if she did. She’s the bench warmer, the weakest link, the insignificant other, they say. And every time they say it, something smells funny, and it sure ain’t rain.

    Yes! Great job once again. And your right of course. The left does fear her and they make that fact known every single day. Please run Sarah!!

  • tomlyn

    Obama, the left , and even some Republicans will do everything they can to stop Sarah and we must do everything we can to get Sarah elected as president in 2012. We can be faint at heart and get discouraged when they attack her as that is their plan and I will be dam if I will ever give up on supporting Sarah all the way to the White House !

  • John B. Hefmier

    Another great article, Adrienne. To those who proverbially urinate on our legs and claim that it is raining might as well also claim that 1+1 = 3,

  • CBDenver

    Sometimes I wish the left wouldn’t focus so much on Gov Palin, just to give her a rest from the relentless assaults. But I guess if you are the Michael Jordan of the political opposition, you have to expect they will try to shut you down any way they can.

  • Republican2679

    Palin for President 2012!!! That’s all I have to say tonight.

  • c4pfan

    Great article!! Don’t forget the North Star reference in his speech.

    • nohype1

      He has also dropped the term "common sense" into some of his speeches. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

  • Sapwolf

    The fear that she runs is not only exhibited via the LSM.

    The fear is evident in Obama’s words and the fact that his campaign guys are focused on trying to use Sarah’s stands on issues.

    It is evident in the other GOP candidates in how they wait for Sarah to lead on issues and on whether to go to a debate and whether to announce their candidacies formally.

    It is evident in the pathetic attempts by NRO, The Weekly Standard and other inside the beltway Rino publications (including Townhall) to marginalize her.


    • blackbird

      "…trying to use Sarah’s stands on issues…" this is so true.

    • tingale12

      Sap, the others are just in tow, behind, and waiting for the leader.She is the first to speak on issues of the day, the others parrots, and paraphrase.

      You know the minute she declares her candidacy, the whole world will spin, the left, an the RINO’s will go beserk. I think 2012 will be a beginning of a much, much bigger event- the world will see America come alive. I could not even imagine what it will be like on that day when she raises her hand to swear and defend the constitution, with her right left hand on the page of her favorite verse on the bible. Not a koran,not some borrowed copy from someone, but her very own.

  • panchita

    i’m so inspired by your post that i’m off to lift my hind leg on one of obama’s greek pillars.

    comforted in the knowledge that the syrofoam will serve as a sponge.

    • panchita

      …….and avoid the unseemly splatter.

  • elkonv

    Yes they are trying to keep Sarah from making the winning basket but she has millions helping lead her down the court. Sarah Palin 2012

    Adrienne, I’d LOVE to know what your coaching record was….or is!! What?? 1000-3 or something close?? Let’s hope that President-elect Palin signs you up for SOMETHING!!!! How about Vice-President!!!??

    • Adrienne Ross

      I wish I could remember my record. I coached for six years. The first two were losing years–horrible. My inexperience as a coach showed, the players were not used to such a disciplinarian as I and the opponents were just too good. My next two years were winning seasons, and I had a wonderful assistant coach, who is also my good friend and youth pastor of my church. Our team was more than respectable. My last two years were amazing. I had another complimentary assistant coach, and we won the first conference championship in the history of the school the second to last year, going undefeated during the regular season in the conference with only one non-conference loss during the regular season. We repeated the championship the next year, which was my last year, going undefeated in and out of the conference and being ranked 3rd, I believe, in the state. We never lost a game until Sectionals semi-finals, which we lost by 2 points, with my star player on the line with a chance to tie. She never missed free throws. Guess what? She missed, but had it not been for her, we wouldn’t have been in that good position to begin with. It was great to be undefeated all year, but it doesn’t prepare you for that one loss. When your only loss is both your first and last loss of the season–the final game of the season (and the final game of my coaching career)–it sure hurts. Thanks for letting me stroll down memory lane. :)

        Adrienne, I’m glad your on our Team!!!!

        • Adrienne Ross

          So am I. No other team but Gov’s team!

  • independents4palin

    Sarah Palin is a threat to this President !! He is using Gov.Palin references while saying he does not think about her. If the left didn’t fear her, they would not be attacking her and sadly her family on a daily basis. He uses her North Star reference in his Libya speech, then uses her drill baby drill in his energy speech, even going off script to do it. I can’t wait until 2012 !! Palin all the way !!

  • royroyo

    The Left and the Republican Establishment are Pissing in the Wind.

    Run Sarah Run

  • VADMCollingwood

    Slightly off topic, but it seems the Obama White House has found a way to vote present on the Libyan uprising:

    “We’ve been conveying a message to the rebels that we will be compelled to defend civilians, whether pro-Qaddafi or pro-opposition,” said a senior Obama administration official. “We are working very hard behind the scenes with the rebels so we don’t confront a situation where we face a decision to strike the rebels to defend civilians.”

    So …. I guess the "Obama Doctrine" is to make random attacks in support of randomly selected insurgents, then, at some randomly selected time, begin bombing the insurgents.

    Anybody know how to say "Bay of Pigs" in Arabic?

    nice post

  • cuttingboardblues

    They are so scared of her it’s almost pathetic. Oh wait it is.

  • Jim R

    As a coach myself, I can say that your coaching anology is spot on. Very nicely done Adrienne.

    • Adrienne Ross

      Jim R, it’s always good to converse with another coach. Thanks!
