The Media's Message About Palin

I have been watching and reading what the MSM have been saying about Sarah since her resignation on 7.3.09 and the message that their masters have given them to spew forth over and over again in a new mantra of attack is this; Palin has no experience, an almost transparent resume, she is leaving the only job that would give her experience, and therefore, her message cannot possible be correct because it is not based on anything.

Here is just one example of the numerous I have read over the last few days,  and the blinding omission of the obvious; Barack Obama has even less experience.   This snake oil salesman and frontman for the shadow chess players was a “community organizer” and served only 143 days in the Illinois Senate before starting his alexandrian campaign for the White House.

I found this story over at CQ Politics and it was written by David Corn about Time Magazine.

Time Goes Gaga for Palin

In a classic example of newsmagazine overthink, Time profiles Sarah Palin with a cover story that practically celebrates her thin résumé and essentially makes the case that know-nothingism could be good for America. Seriously:

“Palin’s unconventional step speaks to an ingrained frontier skepticism of authority — even one’s own. Given the plunging credibility of institutions and élites, that’s a mood that fits the Palin brand. Résumés ain’t what they used to be; they count only with people who trust credentials — a dwindling breed. The mathematics Ph.D.s who dreamed up economy-killing derivatives have pretty impressive résumés. The leaders of congressional committees and executive agencies have decades of experience — at wallowing in red ink, mismanaging economic bubbles and botching covert intelligence.”

If ever there has been a time to gamble on a flimsy résumé, ever a time for the ultimate outsider, this might be it. “We have so little trust in the character of the people we elected that most of us wouldn’t invite them into our homes for dinner, let alone leave our children alone in their care,” writes talk-show host Glenn Beck in his book Glenn Beck’s Common Sense, a pox-on-all-their-houses fusillade at Washington. Dashed off in a fever of disillusionment with those in power, Beck’s book is selling like vampire lit, with more than 1 million copies in print.

Citing Glenn Beck as proof that many Americans are eager to turn to a pol with little expertise in national policy? But didn’t the country just have an election? And didn’t a significant majority vote for the guy with two Ivy League degrees who talked about bringing professionalism, science, and expertise back to policymaking in Washington? (Anyone remember Palin’s climate change denialism? Not the Time people.)

Didn’t 69 Million incredibly gullible people buy the MSM marketing of a candidate that has no experience and even more questionable judgement?  It is no wonder we are in this mess when Americans are voting with their emotions instead of their cranial faculties.

You may or may not like Sarah or agree with her; that’s not the point of this post.  The point is to watch what the Media is stating about her and see the reverse marketing approach that they are making in hopes of slowing down her message by discrediting her personally and professionally.

I personally am glad that with all that is happening in the beltway, we at least have one adult speaking the truth above the heads of the crack-smokin’ congress and the hormonally challenged teenagers in the White House.

    I agree with Alex Jones. This was a stroke of genius on Palin’s part. She had run up half a million in lawyers bills defending herself from the relentless attacks, and there was no sign they would let up any time soon. By doing what she did, she will be free to make the lecture circuit, make some money to pay off this debt, endear herself more to all she talks to, and for the most part, the MSM and the Democratic “kill” machine will leave her alone because they will think that she is irrelevant. She still will get my vote (not that it counts anyway- but I still do it out of habit).

  3. PM,

    Republican strategist Mary Matalin said basically the same thing (much to the chagrin of CNN). Personally, I think Karl Rove is ranting about it so much because he didn’t think of it!

    Diamond,

    You are correct – this is classic Allinsky. Discredit your opponent as a person so no one listens to their actual positions on the issues.
