The Mystique of Sarah Palin
Love her or hate her, Sarah Palin cannot be ignored. From the moment she was asked to become a part of the John McCain campaign for the presidency in 2008, Sarah Palin has not been out of the spotlight for a moment. She has been mocked for her relaxed "ordinary person" manner of speech and way of life. Her education, which is fairly typical of many Americans, is a particularly sore point. It is a subject of sneers and condescension. She has been snidely ridiculed for her choice to give birth to a baby with Down Syndrome, as well as her daughter's teenage pregnancy.
Sarah Palin and Facebook
In spite of these difficulties, her comments in a social media (Facebook) rock the world and even the President of the United States, Barack Obama, appears unable to restrain himself from getting into the mix. She coined the term "death panels" that inspired a revolution in the activist movement among the ordinary people of this country. Sarah Palin is a fearless, determined woman who has been severely underestimated by the talking heads in the media
Palin's Education Compared to Former Presidents
After a review of the education of former presidents, we find that Sarah Palin has more education than George Washington, Andrew Jackson, Zachary Taylor, Millard Fillmore, Abraham Lincoln, Andrew Johnson, and Grover Cleveland. All these were American presidents who did not benefit from a college education. George Washington had a surveyors certificate from William and Mary College. I am not certain how much help the surveyors certificate gave Washington during the Revolutionary War or during his two terms as president. Washington and Lincoln felt the lack of their formal education but as a result they were life long learners. This lack in formal education contributed to their understanding of the world and gave them a hunger for knowledge that aided in their rise to the heights of greatness.
The McCain Campaign
Sarah Palin came into the McCain campaign as the underdog. She is not a millionaire and for this alone the snobs would never like her! It was open season on a woman who could never compete in the world the media insiders and elites live. And still these people underestimated her appeal to the ordinary people of the world. Sarah Palin appeals to ordinary people because she is someone you can trust. Americans are sick and tired of politicians and leaders who talk out of both sides of their mouths. Most of these same politicians on both sides of the aisle have no idea that an underground revolution is taking root among the American people. The same people who put all of them in office can and will fire them if changes are not forthcoming.
Sarah Palin is a lodestone for regular people who are worried and afraid of the direction our country is taking. The change so widely touted during the presidential campaign is not the change most of the people thought would be forthcoming.
Sarah Palin Breaks Into The American Psyche
At the moment the release of her book, Going Rogue, is a tool to set the record straight and get a lot of things off of her chest. Her popularity is so great that a mirror image book detailing her failures and missteps called Going Rouge has been published in the wake of her own book.
The book tour will give her a little town bronze and accustom her to thinking on her feet. The interviews will tighten her presentation and give her a sharp cutting edge to her image. In spite of popular opinion, Sara Palin is a quick study and she in working in a learning curve right now. Her determination will take her wherever she decides to go.
She will raise the funds she needs to pay off her legal fees incurred by bogus ethics violation complaints that impeded her ability to serve out her term as Alaska's governor. When she makes her decision about her political future, Sarah Palin will make that decision on her own terms. Although, she has her many detractors, the Sarah Watchers are going to have an interesting few years!
