Pray for Palin; Her Victory Means Even Worse Lies, Smears, E-mail Hacks and Dirty Tricks

I met some good friends at the Olive Garden for dinner tonight and admitted to them that I had felt very uptight all day today because I had this feeling that the future of my country was at stake tonight in the Palin-Biden debate. I have made no secret about how dangerous I believe this demagogue, Obama, is, and I desperately wanted Sarah to do well. Please don't tell me that the campaign to destroy Sarah Palin is not being coordinated out of Barack Obama's office; we all know what Chicago politics are like, and what happened to his opponents both for the Illinois Senate and for his run for the U.S. Senate.

I needn’t have worried. Sarah Palin did amazingly well, and the unfairly edited videos by CBS’s Couric (supposedly 60% of the interview was not shown) and ABC’s Gibson can go on the trash heap where they belong. Why do we even listen to network anchors whose motivation is to destroy Republicans and not to provide honest information?

Some thoughts from Michelle Malkin:

“Sarah Palin is the real deal. Five weeks on the campaign trail, thrust onto the national stage, she rocked tonight’s debate.

She was warm, fresh, funny, confident, energetic, personable, relentless, and on message. She roasted Obama’s flip-flops on the surge and tea-with-dictators declarations, dinged Biden’s bash-Bush rhetoric, challenged the blame-America defeatism of the Left, and exuded the sunny optimism that energized the base in the first place.

McCain has not done many things right. But Sarah Palin proved tonight that the VP risk he took was worth it.

Her performance also underscored the underhandedness of the hatchet job editors at ABC News and CBS News, which failed to capture her solid competence on the whole array of foreign and domestic policy issues on the debate table tonight. (I didn’t care for all the “greed” rhetoric, but I understand they are trying to appeal to independents and Dems. They’re trying to win the election.)

Pause to reflect on this: She matched — and trumped several times — a man who has spent his entire adult life on the political stage, run for president twice, and as he mentioned several times, chairs the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Sarah Palin looked presidential.

Joe Biden looked tired.

Sarah made history.

Biden is history.

Prediction: Watch for a whole new, severe strain of Palin Derangement Syndrome to begin tonight.

They hated her before tonight. They are going to pour on more unfathomable hate at a level we have never seem before.

Sarah, we’re praying for you."

She will be adding grace to the White House, as well as knowledge for drilling. We could get away from being dependant on foreign oil, and the left-wing illuminati could take notes from her.
