Reverend Amy takes on the Palin rumors and says:
A few days ago, I printed an email Move On sent out with a number of “dangerous” positions Gov. Palin allegedly holds or actions in which she engaged. A number of them were flat out wrong. It is exactly this kind of “Swiftboating” we all decried when it happened to Kerry. I am all for disagreeing with another’s political position, but it needs to be REALITY based, and not conjecture, rumor, or innuendo. Below are some of the main ones Move On mentioned, and the truth:
She then goes on to debunk some of the more “popular” rumors about Sarah Palin, quotes an article on what governing Alaska really entails, and then:
And here’s a good one. This just goes to show what strange bedfellows Politics makes. It turns out that the reports of Gov. Palin moving to ban a bunch of books is bogus – yet another rumor concocted to demean her. We cannot stoop to these kinds of Swiftboat levels. So, I am being FORCED to use sources like Michelle Malkin. What the hell is the world coming to?!? But, even a broken clock is right twice a day.
Reverend Amy concludes:
There seems to be no care for the damage these falsehoods will do the organizations’ own reputation in their haste to discredit this woman. It is remarkable. And remarkably stupid. It makes people like me question how in the world I was ever even a MEMBER of Move On. It lowers the level of discourse to ducking mud slinging all around. We can do better than that. I’d like to think we are BETTER than that. So, come out with the facts – let’s take a look, form our opinions, and have some honest discussion, not this constant smearing with any crackpot rumor that comes down the pike. Just a thought.
Yep, while we are wasting our time on this stuff, the left just sounds “unhinged.” Really, like Amy, I, too, “would like to think we are BETTER than that.”
Worse, and I repeat myself, I know: The left ignores the appeal that Sarah Palin has at their peril. You want to win the White House? You want to win more seats in the House and the Senate? Answer the damn clue phone and quit acting like the idiots you decried the right of being.
