Nothin’ but net.
Gov. Sarah Palin spoke yesterday in Madison, Wisconsin, at the TEA Party rally held there. Well, actually, she didn’t so much speak, as she flung red,white, and blue darts of truth at a spineless establishment GOP, union-boss thuggery, and the current occupant of America’s White House.
I wish I could have been there. I listened to the live-stream, and then watched the YouTube videos later, for what I missed when the livestream went down. I watched the tweets on Twitter as she was speaking, shared by some in attendance.
If this woman runs, she will win.
No one else, man or woman, that I have heard of, speaks as does this woman. Bold and unafraid. No parsing of words to give cover for later disclaimers. She speaks from her heart, and her words drive straight into the hearts of millions of us who hunger for a true American leader.
Josh, at his Texas For Sarah Palin blog, has a great roundup of the quotes we’re bound to hear more about.
Kunta Evans, a new blogger I just discovered, shares his thoughts on Palin’s speech at his Random Alien Musings blog.
I love this analogy to Shakespeare’s Henry V, and the St. Crispin’s Day speech.
Many folks are saying this was her announcement that she is running for president in 2012. Her closing words do contain a declaration and a challenge:
“The 2012 election begins here. We will take the courage and the integrity that you showed all of America. We will fight for America. And it starts here in Madison, Wisconsin. It starts here. It starts now. Mr. President, game on!”
Game on! Fight Like A Girl!
