Just in on CNN's Political Ticker is a report of her stump appearance in St. Clairsvile, her targeted words meant to paint Barack Obama as one of them, as one of the BAD GUYS. She rallied the crowd to put her and John McCain in the White House because, in her words, “we know who the bad guys are.” The inference is CLEAR, the bad guys are (as Bush has said) anyone that does not agree with us, anyone that is different that us, anyone that happens to be black and has a name like Barack Hussein Obama.
I can hear Sarah Palin now, a highschool cheerleader exciting the crowd before the big game, whipping their emotions into a frenzy:
“Help me, Ohio, to help put John McCain in the White House,” she said. “He understands. He understands you. We understand how important it is that this team be elected. For one thing, we know who the bad guys are, OK?”
The gathered crowd takes the bait, her red meat sending them into a frenzy as some of them start shouting back at her, "Obama, Obama, Obama". She continues on, pressing her advantages, smiling to herself:
“We know that in the war, it’s terrorists, terrorists who hate America and her allies and would seek to destroy us, and the bad guys are those who would support and sympathize with the terrorists,” she said. “They do not like America because of what we stand for. Liberty. Freedom. Equal rights. Those who sympathize and support those terrorists who would seek to destroy all that it is that we value, those are the bad guys, OK?”
“greedy and corrupt and arrogant”
These are simple people, some might even say oppressed. They do not have the opportunities that some Americans have, their schools most times even more ill equipped than some of our worst inner city schools, living in counties where sometimes half of the population is recieving some kind of federal assistance just to survive.
"mavens of Wall Street and Washington who have pushed the nation’s economy to the brink."
You can see the Pep Rally construcion of her words!
“We know who the good guys are, and it is you, and we will fight for you, and we will put government on your side,”
You can almost see the local high school football team about to burst through the hand painted banner, ready to rush on too the field.
“We will end the arrogant and the selfish practices of Washington and of Wall Street because your United States government is to be of the people, by the people, for the people.”
She is ready, it is time to pull the trigger, release the now ANGRY hordes, send them forth to fight for VICTORY, send them off to fight for God and Country, send them off to elect John McCain as our next president to save America from the BAD GUYS, to save the United States from Barack Hussein Obama!
