Charlie Gibson’s Boner

Gibson Aims At Palin: Shoots Himself In Face. Shoot-out at the ABC corral and another media big-wig bites the dust. How did the Alaska hockey-mom manage to turn the tables on yet another so much smarter east-coast big-shot? Easy: by asking sensible questions, followed with succinct measures of straight-talk.

Attacking Alaska Governor Sarah Palin established the opposite of what Obama bots in the media had been hoping to accomplish: by confirming male media’s anti-Palin-McCain bias (again): and that Gov. Palin is exactly the sort of Vice-President America needs in the White House.

Sarah heard Gibson out, focused on the target, and squeezed the trigger: delivering the only fact that matters to 99% of Americans:”if there is legitimate and enough intelligence that tells us that a strike is imminent against American people, we have every right to defend our country. In fact, the president has the obligation, the duty to defend.” Next question.

Dems whining about an effective ‘elevator speech’ on national security could learn a lot from Palin’s remarks: straight at the target with every shot in the black. Clear statements nobody can mistake, friend and foe alike.

Dems fire blanks on questions of national security. Dems can’t even get a bead on a ‘foreign policy’ sitting-duck like Palin, a hockey-mom who just found out she’s slated to become the first female Vice-President in American history. And this isn’t the first time Dems have missed.

We can thank Dems for letting the least popular and most ineffective President in US history destroy America’s stature in the world, terrified Republicans might call them names. George Bush is still sitting in the White House, largely because all the Dems together couldn’t or wouldn’t lay a glove on this feckless narcissist. Dems simply nominated one of their own.

McCain made a wise choice. Palin’s message: defend America and demand exacting analysis from subordinates and area experts. Gibson and the rest of McCain’s critics can’t seem to look past Gov. Palin’s chest. If they could they’d see what many average Americans already see so clearly: a strong passionate heart that sings true for the red, white and blue.

Sarah Palin is precisely the kind of home-cooked apple-pie spiced with black-powder wisdom America needs to recover from Dem capitulation during the last eight years. Not a dish Dems are likely to savor, but a banquet for Americans starved for change and working for a bright American century.

  1. And to all the good folks who provide one of the last places on the web where folks are actually allowed to disagree.

    A special shout-out to buhdy for all his hard work.

  2. … it’s a funny title.

    Reads like something I would write if someone was holding a gun to the head of a really adorable little kitten and told me to do a positive write up McCain … or else

    But “Charlie Gibson” sure is a funny way to spell “John McCain”…

    “Isn’t this the most marvelous running mate in the history of the nation?” McCain asked the Wisconsinites Friday morning one the Republican ticket’s first day of barnstorming after the convention. “Sarah Palin — she’s magnificent.”


  3. I don’t like because I did play hockey and so did all my cousins. She was the one who screamed at her kid to take some player on the other team out and then whines when her own kid gets is nailed with a clean check. Sorry. Me no buy the line.

    You really need to apply for a job at the Onion, ks.

    reached right down into the base and pulled up one of the base’s own.  she is what the rightwingers i know are.  there is no nuance, what wingers see in Sarah is what they see in themselves and/or their spouses or their mothers.  mccain’s choice was smack on.  sorta like Bruce in his “Dancing in the Dark” video, Courtney Cox was supposed to be “the” Jersey Girl of that moment.

    but no difference between McCain and Obama?  please, i’m a veteran of the Gore v Bush wars.  doesn’t wash so i ain’t buying.  😉  

  5. …quite painful.  One needs to purge one’s system after experiencing same.

    Drink lots of water, take chinese herbs, grapefruit, and lots of bed rest.
