    Good morning all.

    How the Palin emails backfired on the media.
    —————-

    ‘Sarah Palin email witch hunt backfires – squeaky clean good governor!’

    From the article:

    "The release of Sarah Palin’s emails backfires, as not only does she come off as squeaky clean, she looks like a very hard working governor by the looks of these communications. According to NPR, nothing of any concern was found among the thousands of Palin emails released."

    ‘American Way: Sarah Palin email frenzy backfires on her media antagonists’

    Form the article:

    "The trove of more than 13,000 emails detailing almost every aspect of Sarah Palin’s governorship of Alaska, released late on Friday, paints a picture of her as an idealistic, conscientious, humorous and humane woman slightly bemused by the world of politics.

    One can only assume that the Left-leaning editors who dispatched teams of reporters to remote Juneau, the Alaskan capital, to pore over the emails in the hope of digging up a scandal are now viewing the result as a rather poor return on their considerable investment.

    If anything, Mrs Palin seems likely to emerge from the scrutiny of the 24,000 pages, contained in six boxes and weighing 275 pounds, with her reputation considerably enhanced. As a blogger at Powerline noted, the whole saga might come to be viewed as “an embarrassment for legacy media”.

    ‘Operation Backfire: E-Mails Prove Sarah Palin Was A Great Governor’

    From the article:

    "Governor Palin conducted the business of her state in a transparent, bi-partisan, and responsible manner. She worked long, hard hours and treated everyone with respect. America is finding out that Palin is a smart, effective, fiscally responsible leader whose goal has always been to serve the people she represents.

    She knows how to prioritize, delegate, and choose the most qualified and competent people to serve with her. America is learning that even in the face of death threats from crazed liberals, Gov. Palin just kept working and putting Alaska and Alaskans first."

    ‘The Sarah Palin email mania backfires on the media’

    From the article:

    "As 13,000 emails of the former Governor of Alaska, Sarah Palin, were released on Friday, the Liberal main-stream media scurried down to Juneau, Alaska to collect 24,000 pages of what they thought could be a damning story.

    Dozens of major news publications released the 24,000 pages online to find something to smear the possible 2012 Republican contender, but their search came out dry.

    Instead, what they found was a hard-at-work governor leading the great state of Alaska.

    In detail, the emails display her down-to-earth tenure as governor and the policies she put in place while serving the 49th state."

    Palin: the emails, the Paul Revere flap, and the foolish media

    From the article:

    "Similarly, the mainstream media stands with egg dripping all over its face, yet again. Nothing in the emails contains the slightest hint that Palin was anything other than a hard-working Governor, a caring mother and wife, and an all-around good-natured human being…not exactly what the death squads of WaPo, the NYT, and other mainstream outlets had in mind.

    This shockingly laughable scenario is in sharp contrast to the manner in which the media handled Barack Obama, whom it woefully failed to properly investigate in 2007-08. Where were all of the reporters who should have been camped outside the door of domestic terrorist William Ayers, who launched Obama’s political career from his living room?"

    Rush on Palin’s emails: What a spectacular backfire!

    From the article:

    "Rush started his show today noting what a spectacular backfire on the media it was that Sarah Palin withstood the media looking for dirt in every syllable of her 24,000 emails. He wonders who else could have withstood such an analysis.

    http://www.therightscoop.com/rush-on-palins-emails-what-a-spectacular-backfire/

    Gov. Palin has been microscopically analyzed on an unprecedented level and she still comes up clean. I doubt anyone else could have withstood the intense scrutiny that she has undergone.

      Politico: Emails Bolster the Message in ‘The Undefeated’  (June 11 2011)

      Form the article:

      "It says something when even the Politico, not exactly known for their unbiased Palin coverage, is conceding that this surreal “colonoscopy” by the cartoonish mainstream media is backfiring.  And that’s exactly what it’s doing.  Much to the media’s chagrin, the emails show a serious and highly effective executive who was in full control of her administration. As Tim Crawford indicated yesterday, everyone should read the emails."

        The Washington Post: Palin a “Definite Renegade” on Big Oil;Updated  ( June 12 2011)

        From the article:

        "As the MSM and their readers continue to search through Governor Palin’s emails searching for non-existent bombshells, let me be one of the first to welcome the Washington Post to 2008.

        As Ian mentioned earlier, the Washington Post recognized that Governor Palin’s emails showed that she budgeted frugally and was opposed to pork barrel spending. Now, the Washington Post recognizes that Governor Palin did not have a buddy-buddy relationship with Big Oil. Both of these supposedly new revelations are not new at all to Palin supporters who have followed her political rise after Senator McCain chose her as his VP nominee or even prior to that."

          #Palinemails Show that the Center-Left Superintendent of the Anchorage School District Praised Palin for “Her Vision [and] Leadership”  (June 17 2011)

          From the article:

          "If you don’t believe what we say about Governor Palin’s leadership, here’s what the center-left superintendent of the Anchorage School District said about Palin:

              "Thank you so much for your vision, leadership, and support for our public schools this week. I cannot tell you how much all of us want to celebrate with you. The idea that we could actually plan ahead, really focus on student achievement,connecting with parents and families, and really digging into the serious issues of low graduation rates and high drop out rates excites me very much. We spend too much time trying to justify our collective needs, when we should be focused on teaching and learning.

              You and your staff are to be commended for honoring the work of the Joint Funding Task Force and for honoring your commitments made during the election for early and forward funding."

            So much for the ‘shoots wolves from helicopters’ myth (June 11, 2011)

            From the article:

            "Some left wing bloggers may be starting to realize that the Palin emails they fought relentlessly to have released are not the silver bullets they had hoped for to use to destroy the object of their hatred. Information contained in the documents, in fact, provides contradictory evidence to one of the many myths they have perpetuated about Sarah Palin.

            The emails shatter the mythological image of a bloodthirsty Sarah Palin, assault rifle in hand, maniacally pursing Alaskan wolves from the skid of a black helicopter, fiendishly laughing as she slaughters the poor creatures. Lefty bloggers have been pushing that one for years. But, according to the liberal Washington Post, the emails prove otherwise.

            Another email demonstrates Gov. Palin’s opposition to hunting bears in the McNeil River Bear Sanctuary.

            Governor Palin did indeed strongly support predator control, and she clearly favored paying hunters a bounty to keep the wolf population in check, but the image of her personally shooting the predators from aircraft has finally been shot down. The emails also show that her motivation for keeping the wolf population at manageable levels was her concern for the welfare of Alaska’s rural families who depend so heavily on caribou and moose, the wolves’ prey, for food and warm clothing."

      Leftist Jews continue to adore Soros.  Why?  Why do American Jews support a Muslim president who is the most hostile towards Israel than any previous president.  Those centrifuges keep spinning in Iran.  Iran is supplying Hamas with long range rockets to bomb Israel. 

      • Guest

         Why do you think they tried to get Lt. Col. Allen West redistricted out of Fl-22? The Jews in Boca had fund drives for him. They voted for him. Soros needed to shut him up. West was scoring points with Jews in Boca who were fed up with Dumb-Ø’s BS.

    The balance of power has not changed in Washington after the November elections — Democrats control the White House and Senate, while Republicans continue to control the House.  However, the LSM is busy spinning the narrative that Democrats now have a clear mandate to implement their socialist policies. They do not, as the last elections does not change the balance of power.   If conservative media does not challenge this false mandate narrative, congress and Obama will behave as if Democrats really have a mandate to turn hard left.  The Republican leadership in Congress may even start to believe the narrative and buckle. 
    Conservative media and pundits, do your job — dispel the mandate narrative.

    MARK LEVIN: TEA PARTY ONLY THING THAT STANDS ‘BETWEEN LIBERTY AND TYRANNY’

    http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2012/11/16/Mark-Levin-Tea-Party-Only-Thing-That-Stands-Between-Liberty-And-Tyranny

    Excerpt:
    “We cannot get through Obama and the left until we get through the Republican Establishment,” Levin said, railing against establishment consultants who attack the base and politicians who know nothing of “Burkean reform” because they have spent their whole careers “clawing their way to the top.”

    In a talk at the Heritage Foundation on Wednesday with his mentor, former Reagan Attorney General Ed Meese, for whom Levin served as Chief of Staff, Levin said the Republican Party is, “devouring the conservative movement,” and the old bulls need to step aside in favor of a new generation of conservatives who are fluent in conservatism.

    “It’s time for the old bulls to get out of the way and for the fresh faces who believe in conservatism and liberty and originalist principles to step up,” Levin said, criticizing those like House Speaker John Boehner for “yielding territory” to the left in negotiations.

    When discussing the future of conservatism, Levin highlighted in particular Texas Senator-elect Ted Cruz and former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, among others.

    “I love Sarah Palin,” Levin said.

    “You see how intelligent she is?,” Levin asked, noting that Palin is nothing like the caricature of her on the left and in the mainstream media.

    Levin said Palin should be given credit for effectively and enthusiastically articulating the conservative cause, even though she has been attacked by the mainstream media and the Republican establishment.

    "Yet, she still rallies the base a hundred times more than these people telling us what we are supposed to do,” Levin said.

    After reading Brianaus post’s of the last two days and following the path of Ronald Reagan with an update for the challenges we face now it is still possible for Governor Palin to win in 40+ states in 2016  including  CA& NY

       We will have that army if she actually declares her candidacy.  Many of us will not go through what we did in 2011.  I spent 6 months making friends with every conservative activist in west central IA, contacting the press, attending fund raisers and county fairs and rallies.  The day she declares I will be ready to hit the ground running – I still have those contacts.  But she has to tell us she is running first.

    ZH00,
    Thank you so much for all your great posts.  You should have your own link on this site where all your links are in available in 1 place.

    Gotta love the Palin haters.  The great irony is the GOP did exactly what the haters wanted.. ignored Sarah…  and guess what, they lost….    IF there was any good to Romney losing, it was that, once again (like with Dole, Bush Sr, and McCain) the "moderate"  we are so often told we need to back…..lost.  

    The funny thing about the Sarah haters is if they just had given her a chance and actually read about her record (instead of bashing her based on 1 interview and media lies), they would have learned about a politican who was un-afraid to take on her own party’s establishment and work for bi-partisan reform.   The left clearly hates BIG business…  But when they get in power, most of them (including Obama) suck up to Wall Street for their $$$.   Big oil owns AK politics…  Sarah didn’t care, she took them on and won.  

    Only Sarah knows what she will be doing in 2016, but I will be there for her if she decides to give it another go…  with my time and my money…

    I love Jindal, but I can’t wait to (hopefully) see Sarah outperform him and Rubio (the GOPe Obama) in the next couple years.

    Also something just occurred to me that being the potential field is so young, Sarah may finally appear to casual viewers as the most experienced candidate simply because she’s older than some of the guys being thrown out right now.

    Of course she IS the most experienced, but not everyone knows that.

          I think he is a good governor but that does not necessarily transfers over to the national scene. Back in 2009 (if I remember correctly) he was chosen to give the Republican response to Obama’s State of the Union speech. He bombed. He was out of his element.

  • technopeasant

    Watching a movie on AMC now called Broken Lance where Robert Wagner plays the younger son of a wealthy cattle baron who is offered up as a sacrificial lamb or scapegoat to save his father from going to jail and then treated with disdain after he is released from jail. Although his brothers and others know he did nothing wrong himself, they treat him as if he were a real despicable criminal and not the good, decent man that he is.

    Another aspect of revisionist history. Ascribing negative features to someone due to the environment he has been forced to inhabit.

    And let me bring this theme back to Tim Tebow.

    Let’s trace this back to the beginning. Tim Tebow helped his team win 2 national college championships, he won a Heismann trophy as the best college player in the nation and performed at such a high level he is considered one of the greatest college players ever.

    So Tebow is drafted #25 by the Denver Broncos against the advice of a greater majority of football pundits. But instead of really lashing into the Broncos for drafting him so high or the head coach Josh McDaniels for making the decision to do so on a continual basis, the pundits have focused lo these many years on creating a narrative it was Tebow’s fault he was drafted so high.

    Revisionist history: Blaming the victim not the perpetrator.

    Then after McDaniels was fired, Tebow was demoted to 4th string in training camp. Kyle Orton, the starting QB kept losing games. By the time he was replaced by Tebow his win-loss record for the last 18 games was 4-14.

    At the time Tebow started the 6th game of the Broncos season last year, oddsmakers gave the 1-4 Broncos a 2% chance of making the playoffs. But revisionist historians try to imply that Tebow was not qualified to take over the Broncos at this time or that the Broncos were ill-advised to make the change at QB. For those of you who don’t know football or math Orton had won less than 25% of the games under his watch in 2010 and the first 5 games in 2011 and that is absolutely awful or pitiful. It’s not like Orton was setting the world on fire. Many pundits were speculating before Tebow took over that the Broncos would be drafting Andrew Luck as the #1 overall draft choice.

    Tebow proceeded to win the next 7 of 8 regular season games before losing the last three games of the season. But despite the latter, Tebow and the Broncos made the playoffs. But did most of the sports pundits focus on Tebow literally lifting the Broncos from the ashes like a phoenix? No. They have instead heavily focused on the last three games of the regular season where Tebow and the Broncos lost and the narrative that the Broncos would not have made the playoffs if the San Diego Chargers had not beaten the Oakland Raiders in the last game of the season. The narrative continues to this day that what Tebow did was a fluke. What they refuse to acknowledge is regardless of how the Broncos finished the season, the Broncos still registered 8 wins and that winning 7 of 8 games at anytime is really out of this world and finally this is a fact which is never brought up: The Broncos had not made the playoffs since 2005, And that the Broncos before Tebow took over were then regarded as one of the laughingstocks of the league.

    So the playoffs begin and the majority of pundits claim the Pittsburgh Steelers even with an injured Ben Rothlisberger will have no problem beating the Broncos. So what happens: Tim Tebow sets a NFL playoff passing record in that game in which he threw the most completed 50 yard passes in a playoff game (3), by posting the highest yard per completion ever (31.6 yards per completion), and by throwing the longest pass in overtime to win an overtime game.

    And you guessed it: The narrative to this very day is Tebow can’t pass. By the way his passer rating was 125.6. Also in that playoff game he ran for 1 touchdown and ran for 50 yards overall.

    And Tebow did this against the #1 defense of the NFL. And in 2012 the Steelers are still the #1 defense of the NFL.

    Revisionist history: The big lie. As Hitler put it, most people will not believe a tepid lie but many of them are so clued out that they will believe an outrageous lie, the big lie, because they just can’t imagine that a big lie to be untrue.

    So what is the narrative? Another aspect of revisionist history. They claim that Tim Tebow went 1-4 in his last four games with the Broncos, making it sound that the one win is insignificant rather than the playoff win. And of course they completely discount the playoff win was against the vaunted Steelers.

    And the focus is more on the loss to the NE Patriots the following week acting like the Broncos were some huge favorite going into Boston and that somehow the Pats upset the Broncos and that it was all Tebow’s fault they were blown out rather than Tim Brady picking apart the woeful Broncos defense.

    So coming off last season, GM John Elway claims Tebow is now the starting QB for the 2012 season. But meanwhile Peyton Manning becomes a free agent and eventually signs with the Broncos which in the opinion of Elway makes Tebow dispensable. But the question no one ever asks, would Manning have chosen to sign with the Broncos had Tebow not taken the Broncos to the playoffs and helped to put the spotlight on the Broncos and its impressive offensive line, running game and the potential that lie within the team. Manning would have seen the rise of pass receiver Demerious Thomas from total obscurity because of Tebow. Sure Manning is a pro QB but ask yourself would he really have signed with a 3-13 or a 4-12 team (assuming Orton was still the Broncos QB) given that the Broncos were the laughingstock of the league next to the Buffalo Bills who hadn’t made the playoffs since 1999? I think that is a moot point.

    In that light the pundits in 2012 with Manning at the helm are trying to make out that the Broncos are a perennial superpower and if you listen to national talk radio and local Denver talk radio, they virtually all ignore the Broncos’ futiility between 2006 and 2010 and the role Tebow had in lifting the team from the abyss and imply that the Broncos were always good.

    So Techno what are you saying? What I am saying is that by Tebow lifting the Broncos up into a playoff team he was unwittingly cutting his own throat, as Sarah Palin was unwittingly cutting her own throat by orchestrating the overwhelming 2010 midterm victory.

    Manning resurrects his career with a team that Tebow put on the map, while Tim Tebow is treated worse than dogs*it in New York City and with the NY Jets, while languishing as the backup QB to Mark Sanchez, who over his last 12 games is 3-9, has thrown 15 TD passes to 16 interceptions and posted a 68.73 passer rating. Folks that is among the worse in the league and pathetic given the NFL is a "passing league".

    Tebow is blamed by some of the NY media for the Jets demise and even this past week his own players in the locker room take their potshots at him as "anonymous sources". They imply he is to blame for the Jets demise and not Mark Sanchez or the rest of the team. Of course they never admit Tebow hardly hits the field in each game he has played with the Jets (at most 7 plays a game) and has virtually no influence over the Jets winning or losing.

    Again we have another aspect to revisionist history. The ultimate scapegoat. Everything that goes wrong is to be blamed on Tebow. As everything that goes wrong with the Republican party is to be blamed on Sarah Palin. 

    And believe me after the season Tebow will get the full blame for the Jets freefall. Tebow will be set free but he will be stained with this Jets debacle for the rest of his career. There is talk Tebow will be blackballed from the NFL because he is "too much trouble" and teams don’t want the "circus" to come to their town.

    And I expect eventually Sarah Palin will be the scapegoat for the Romney debacle.

    So while Manning and the Broncos are ascending to greatness, Tim Tebow who arguably brought it all about is consigned to obscurity and the outhouse, the ultimate sacrificial lamb and scapegoat, who is ostracized from the NFL because he is "different" or not their cup of tea.

    And while someone like Rubio is being boosted by the GOP establishment and conservatives to the heights of glory, Sarah Palin is sent to Canossa and treated like the ultimate pariah. At least that is the desire of a hell of a lot of political pundits and Palin’s political enemies.It is this iconoclast’s pledge to do his utmost to not let this happen.
     
    And you wonder why I love iconoclasts and I am one myself.  

    I am a simple man. I just want Tebow and Palin to rise to the level they deserve  The best of America is found in these two people. And the worst in America is brought out by their enemies.

        LOL. Just when they were getting over the 2nd term celebration. 

    • n4cerinc

      Wow. And I love that pic. I have already tweeted this article. The author makes a great case and we need to keep making this case for a Palin 2016.

      • Quiet_Righty

         Super-pretty.

        • gilamonster8

          HOT!

    • Polarbearpapa

       I looked up the author of this article and she also posts for The Weekly Standard occasionally…She is a conservative that writes for LA Times…. 

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/Ory-Hebert/1583287180 Ory Hebert

        Yea, the bottom of the article says that she writes a lot about feminism…real feminism I suppose.

    • Guest

       Thanks for the heads up. That certainly will make many obsessive, regressive, oppressive heads explode in LA!

      • Quiet_Righty

        I have the topic "Sarah Palin" as a custom news section in my personalized Google News page. That’s how I found it.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Ory-Hebert/1583287180 Ory Hebert

      Wow!  One of the least snarky positive Palin articles I’ve ever read.  Very well done.

      She hit on all the right points to explain how Sarah gets popular culture, and what’s even better is that she’s a policy wonk to boot.

    • gilamonster8

      Wow thanks for the heads up. I passed it on.

    • colint

      Excellent article but ALL reader comments were the usual anti Palin nonsens.

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/Ory-Hebert/1583287180 Ory Hebert

        I’ll take that as a good sign.  The day everyone on the internet loves Sarah Palin is when I’ll start to be concerned.

         Not all….read again

    • section9

      I cannot believe that this was published in the LAT.

      Jaw, meet floor.

    • senator20526

       Most of the comments were positive and the poll at the top of the page…should Palin run in 2016…….61% yes

    • John B. Hefmier

      Don’t forget to take the survey at the beginning of the article.

  • Jon Kelly

    Hello–No surprise!!!! When you have real values–97.5% of the time you’re right. Think about it. Isn’t that  why you like and admire SARAH PALIN…

    Come on someone please make a cartoon of this.

    In a Dilbert-esque faux pax, a Taliban spokesperson sent out a routine email last week with one notable difference.He publicly CC’d the names of everyone on his mailing list.
