The Crimes of Sarah Palin

Unless you happen to have been jerked out from under a cabbage leaf during the last decade or so, you’ll remember a time when anyone who criticized Hillary Clinton was customarily accused by her admirers of resenting—or even being afraid of—a woman with political power.
*** and ***
Perhaps as important, Palin isn’t some pallid East-coast hotel dweller, accustomed to room service, but a real human being, a real live female who can do all of the things listed in the song “I’m A Woman”—she can handle a rifle, hunt, fish, clean and cut up wild game, make something edible out of it, keep house, raise five kids, keep her husband interested since they were in high school together, plus run a city and run a state—and most of the things any human being should be able to do, according to The Notebooks of Lazarus Long.
In short, she’s a Heinlein woman.
That, I submit, is why she’s hated by those females who are not Heinlein women, and by those Milquetoast males who are desperately afraid of the kind of real woman she is. That’s why she was betrayed by her own party—Mit Romney’s faction—which was the source, as it develops, of many of the most vicious falsehoods that were spread about her. That’s why she’s being blamed for McCain’s pathetic failures, in an attempt to make sure she won’t have a political future.
And that the peasants won’t revolt.
The 2008 election is behind us now, a part of history, and the collectivists who triumphed are going to enjoy it while they can. The observations I’ve made here might be unimportant, except that, owing to the ascension of their god-king, we’re going to be living with these animals for a while. In the end, it may be that the best thing Sarah Palin’s candidacy accomplished is exposing them for what they are.

Yup, no secret I like Sarah. She was a refreshing change from the “template” D’s and R’s.
