Today it was Ed and Deb Shapiro’s turn to take a whack at belittling Sarah Palin. Their angle was to quote Buddha and compare that to how they see Palin living her life. The article was full of smarmy comments that were simple foolish. Let’s begin:
At the moment Palin is touring the country to promote her book, which has a very large number of words in it, but not all of them are necessarily either true or kind. Nor were her actions particularly kind when hundreds of eager autograph hunters were turned away, despite standing for hours in the rain and cold. All of us have the capacity to be caring and thoughtful, yet it can be so easy to put our own needs above another’s.
The problem is that Palin has thousands of supporters. At every stop. If she was to not stay on schedule she would never be able to leave. The point of a book tour is to see as many people as possible. There will always be people that will be disappointed. Life is harsh that way. Sometimes despite a person’s best effort they won’t be able to say hello to everyone. We all get turned away from people, places or things.
Going Rogue, the name of Palin’s book and the ideology she professes to adhere to, implies she wants to start a small revolution. Yet, having already ditched the governorship half way through her term, it is difficult to imagine what she wants to revolt against — is it having no governors at all?
Read the book and you will understand why she quit as governor. See, in Alaska if an ethics violation pops up you have to pay for the defense out of your own pocket. She had numerous frivolous ethics charges that she has to fight and pay for. The libtards can dismiss her as a quitter but it was their own doing to try to bog her down in ethics charges that caused her financial hardship and did harm to the State. I wonder what Buddha would say about this? hmmm
It would appear Sarah Palin believes that because she thinks something is right then that makes it right for everyone else as well.
A statement they threw against the wall that they did not back up with facts. I’d like to know what makes these writers believe Palin thinks this.
In the same way, Palin needs to be careful that she is not seduced by the delusion of power that leads to further illusions of grandeur. As this will, in the long run, harm her more than she harms anyone else.
sigh. Palin hasn’t even decided if she wants to run. The libtards continue their attacks and insults that she is not a serious person.
The writers pose the question:
What do you think it would take to make politics kinder and more honest?
I dunno. How about not attacking and insulting someone that you do not agree with. If you have nothing good to say, then keep it to yourself. Buddha might agree with that too.
