Our friend, M. Joseph Sheppard has penned a great piece over at American Thinker where he chronicles some of Governor Palin’s great achievements of 2014.
It would be the height of churlishness for even the most inveterate leftist to deny the import of someone who made Time magazine’s "100 Most Influential People" list, and then theSmithsonian Institution’s "100 Most Significant Americans Of All Time" list. Both affirmations were earned by former Alaska governor and vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin.
To then accept Governor Palin as "American Achiever of the Year 2014″ would be for most, if not all on the left (and to be fair, many in the GOP) no doubt a bridge too far. However, such partisanship should not stand in the way of a general acknowledgement of what was a remarkable year for Palin.
Governor Palin endorsed 22 candidates for various offices during the midterm finals, including senators, governors, lieutenant governors, congressmen, and attorneys general. Of those so endorsed, an incredible 20 were elected – contrasted with, for example, Hillary Clinton’s record of 8 wins out 24 endorsed candidates
For all her detractors’ cries of "irrelevance" and "she’s just a reality show entertainer" (those two being among the nicer epithets), Palin goes on, election cycle after election cycle, populating Congress with her endorsed candidates in a cost-effective manner, and in such numbers that the likes of Karl Rove with his 1% success rate can surely view only with hidden admiration, if not downright envy.
In 2014, Governor Palin is deservedly the "Achiever of The Year."
