For all of the allegedly-credible polls released in the past months which tell us Palin should forget about running for President, I am astonished at the rush of special-interest projects ready to hit the market in 2011 that seek to destroy her.
First Huffington Post blogger by the name of Geoffrey Dunn is releasing a book this month called The Lies of Sarah Palin. Back in the day after the release of Going Rogue, Mr. Dunn immediately wrote a scathing attack on Palin which accused her of lying several times. This was thoroughly rebutted by citizen-journalist, Mark Gillar, who had comments deleted from Huffington Post (which has happened to me before as well). To date, Mr. Dunn has not responded.
The next Palin hit piece, scheduled for May 24th release, is Blind Allegiance to Sarah Palin written by Frank Bailey, a campaign administrator for Palin’s primary and general gubernatorial election wins in 2006. He then went on to serve as deputy director of the transition team. What the rest of his bio fails to reveal is the fact that he is a disgruntled employee and little man who was denied senior jobs in her administration and was not part of her vice-presidential campaign in 2008. Two contributing authors to the book are Ken Morris, an anti-Wall Street fanatic and lefty, and Jeanne Devon, yet another blogger for the Huffington Post who has spent a lot of time as part of the Trig Palin “Truther” movement which exists to investigate (along with Andrew Sullivan) Sarah Palin’s decision to fly home to give birth and/or if Trig Palin is even the child of Sarah Palin (I.E. it was really Bristol’s).
Thirdly, we have the creepy next-door peeping-Tom, Joe McGinnis. His book which is titled: The Rogue promises to dive deep into Palin’s connections in Alaska. It is not yet told which sources were used, but I am pretty much assuming it’s going to include some of the people who have written the previous two books.
Needless to say, these pieces of literature (and I use the term lightly) will serve to feed the establishment Republicans Palin refused to scratch backs with along with her liberal-haters over at the Huffington Post much to sink their teeth into. The sad part is, they’ve already accused her of being a liar in the past. They’ve already gotten perspectives on Palin from other Alaskans. None of this will be new. The only person who serves to benefit from all this will be Sarah Palin who knows that this anti-Palin overdrive is conveniently happening just one year before 2012.
One wonders just how blind these authors think American voters are as we listen to them proclaim their confidence in her inability to successfully run for President while they simultaneously crank out the same rhetoric Americans are already used to hearing.
If this is confidence, many are left wondering: what the heck does insecurity look like?
