John Ransom: Holder’s Attack on Palin is More ‘War on Women’ from the Obama Administration

John Ransom at Townhall has an amazing piece up that points out the buffoonery of Eric Holder’s recent attack on Governor Palin:

The worst is judging the not-so-good: That’s what Attorney General Eric Holder would have you believe.

Yes, the worst attorney general in our history contends that Sarah Palin wasn’t a very good vice presidential nominee. Mark one up again for the liberals’ war on women.

“She wasn’t a particularly good vice presidential candidate,” the AG told George Stephanapolous on ABCNews. “She’s an even worse judge of who ought to be impeached and why.”

We’ve known for a while that Holder knows little about the law, now we know that he knows little about politics too.

He’s wrong on the law and he’s wrong the politics as well.

How does he hold his job again?

That Holder’s an impeachment target too, and perhaps a more likely one than Obama, doesn’t help his case.

Ask yourself: How did Al Gore make his money? What did Geraldine Ferraro do after Mondale lost his campaign? When was the last failed vice presidential candidate to have a bestseller? Or a movie made about them?

Sarah Palin was an excellent choice as a running mate.

Liberals and establishment Republicans often ask me: "What was John McCain thinking when he selected Sarah Palin?" To which I reply: "What was anyone thinking when they voted for Obama?"

That an unprepared black man is better than a more qualified woman? Who exactly is waging the war on women?


Like Ronald Reagan did, she knows how to appeal over the heads of the elite and the media, straight to the American people.

In my opinion, that’s one reason she would have made– still could make– an excellent president of the United States.

Far better than Eric Holder, Barack Obama, John McCain, Mitt Romney, Jeb Bush and a host of names which liberals would treat with more seriousness right up until they got the nomination.

Palin also has the advantage of knowing who she is.

That’s an advantage when confronting progressives, who, whatever else you might say, are certainly more committed ideologically than the establishment GOP is.

That Palin is willing to talk about impeachment—Obama or Holder doesn’t matter– is a strength, not a weakness. In the short run it might be seen as pandering to the base, but ultimately, when the history of the Obama administration is written, it will be apparent that Palin, once again, got it right.

There is a lot more than the excerpts provided above and you can read it all here.

      But where are the Republican leaders, especially, those who believe that they should be President?

    One of the most insightful articles I’ve read in a long time, and not simply because I Agree with everything you’ve observed about Sarah Palin but what I’ve gained from studying her life and career over the years, such things as
    >1) common sense
    >2)your observations of her relative qualifications against any other Republican candidate with the needed charisma to rally even the Reagan Democrats. I’ve been hammering away on this for several years hoping for some broader recognition on other sites and articles. But the GOPe doesn’t seem to get it yet.
    >3)But when Liz Cheney disagreed with her father about the rightness or wrongness of Sarah as a political asset, it says more about Dick Cheney tha Liz, who is considered by some TP’ers as thoroughly establishment. Well, that says an awful lot about GOPe wilfull blindness.

      I agree with you and I hope this post gets to him

      Please send your post to him and the hosts at Fox News and ask for a response. For those that do not know just use their last name and add e.g.,, etc

    Gov. Palin is the BEST deal we gonna get.
    Gov. Palin is a TRUE reformer and a REAL leader in America right now.
    What more can the Obama/democrats/liberals and RINOs do to attack
    Gov. Palin?
    Sift over her 41,000 (1st set 24,000, 2nd set 17,000) pages e-mail again?
    They got NOTHING on her!!!

    Obama/democrats/liberals and RINOs always praise
    those they fear LESS and vilify those they fear MOST.

    It was a real pleasure to stroll through the comments over at Town Hall
    quite made my evening read.

    Obama and Holder=Heckle and Jeckle!

    >Thanks for the vote of confidence. I’m thinking over your suggestion and would like to do it. But it’s debatable as to which FOX commentator woud fit…not
    O’Reilly. He doesn’t read any e-mails on the air that don’t apply to him…the old egomaniac. Megyn Kelly, definitely my favorite but I believe Hannity has Sarah tied up in his contract (though she has appeared on O’Reilly once every five years). Megyn might consider it not quite ethical. Hannity????? Well, Hannity is Hannity I’ll figure something out, probably when it’s too late.
