Some Palin Love

Because we haven't had any for awhile here.

John Ziegler writes about his experiences meeting with Sarah Palin:

One of the things you quickly learn when you visit the Palins is that the legend that has been created around who they are and how they live is no myth. It appears to be absolutely real and everything about them seems 100% sincere. From the stuffed hunting trophies on the wall, to the Track’s military photo by the TV set, to Piper’s crayon school projects on the kitchen cabinets, everything is exactly as you imagine it might be.
What was particularly valuable about the perspective I had was that, I am not Charlie Gibson, Matt Lauer or Greta Van Susteren (who I understand now gets her mail delivered to the Palin home); the conductors of the three most prominent interviews done in the Wasilla house on the frozen lake at the end of the drive that has the sign “Palins” posted on a tree at the entrance. Unlike them, I am virtually unknown nationally and there was absolutely no reason for anything to be done differently as a “show” for us. We saw the genuine Sarah Palin and it is patently obvious that this is the only one that exists. She is the real deal.

As a former TV sportscaster and radio talk show host, I have interviewed a lot big-time “celebrities,” and I can honestly say that, even though you could argue that Sarah Palin was the most prominent I have ever spoken to one-on-one, she was also by far the nicest, most sincere and, seemingly, honest subject that I have ever questioned.

Palin brought in the crowds because of her honesty and sincerity. She is everything the media and the left hate. She is faith filled, smart, sincere, conservative, and charismatic. Oh, and we can't forget beautiful.

I think I will always remember the election of 2008 as the year the media finally completely gave up the ghost. There was no objectivity, no fairness, and no integrity. The media painted a shining picture of Obama, fawning over him like a lovestruck teenager. With Palin they lied, smeared, mis-reported, and did everything possible to discredit her. But she stood strong.

I truly haven't admired a politician like this since Ronald Reagan.
