Palin as "ready" as Truman was
By Michael Moriarty
Humphrey Bogart, in the film Casablanca, when asked by a Nazi where he came from, says "New York" and then the great star suggests that there are parts of New York City that Nazis shouldn't venture into.
Racial supremacism and its growing American equivalent, Progressive Intellectual Supremacism that endorses abortion, an elitism shared among both the Democratic and the Republican pundits -- racism and intellectual supremacism are interrelated phenomena -- both equally antithetical to "all men are created equal".
The inventor of Joseph Stalin's "Molotov Cocktail" – Vyacheslav Molotov, when he was first confronted by FDR's replacement, Harry Truman, was unmistakably insulted by the new President. Molotov expressed dismay over Truman who basically told the Red terrorist to cut the cow litter and wipe off the mask of good intentions. Harry knew all along how evil both Molotov and Stalin were.
Sarah Palin knows exactly how evil and threatening Vladimir Putin's neo-Soviet Russia is and, rather like the corn-fed, Midwestern, middle-class Truman, Sarah called a snake a snake … and did so rather deftly in her interview with Katie Couric.
"As Putin raises his head", is how she put it.
Harry knew that Molotov was a snake and Sarah knows that Putin is a snake. Both Putin and Molotov are now known as deadly reptiles.
You can take a man out of the KGB, but you can't take the KGB out of Vladimir Putin.
Harry Truman only lasted one full term as elected President. He was ejected from the Oval Office for having fired Douglas MacArthur, having not freed North Korea and for having lost China to the Communists and Mao Tse Tung. Such eventualities, under the "enlightened" leadership of an increasingly Progressive Democratic Administration (despite the firing of previous and publicly admitted Progressive Vice-President Henry A. Wallace), these "Progressive Concessions" -- they proved to be anathema to the central meaning of America and the American people … then!
With Sarah Palin as a possible Truman -- and without the Progressive agendas of the FDR appeasement policies of Dean Acheson and Averell Harriman, the McCain Presidency cannot only face Red Islam of Communist-backed Muslim extremists, but also have a Harry Truman in Sarah Palin to finish the job. In short, a great American woman can defeat a Communist-backed Islamic male any day.
Who would be best to chat with a Vladimir Putin when he "raises his head?" A master of Progressive "Change" such as Obama or a female Harry Truman that is devoid of the "Progressive suggestions" from the likes of Dean Acheson and Averell Harriman?
The McCain Presidency cannot only face the Red Islam of Communist-backed Muslim extremists, but also have a Harry Truman in Sarah Palin to finish the job.
In conclusion, CNN's and Newsweek's Fareed Zakaria and his Charlie Gibson-like, down-his-own-nose examination and estimation of Sarah Palin is intended to be the justifiable "coup de grace", the death blow so well prepared for by Progressive contract-hitters like Maureen Dowd and Judith Warner … not to mention the recent, in-house Republican dismissals of Palin.
The Progressive 1-2-3 punch of Zakaria, Dowd and Warner, the shared political harmony between the New York Times and Newsweek, effectively confirms these publications' preference for Obama as the re-instatement of Rooseveltian appeasement policies toward Vladimir Putin's neo-Soviet Russia. Because of that, Iran's nuclear ambitions will be tacitly condoned, along with the renewed, nuclear efforts of North Korea.
Zakaria, however, was forced to admit that Sarah Palin is a "feisty, charismatic politician who has done some good".
Sounds like a description of early Harry Truman to me … and what major foreign policy credentials did Harry Truman have before America entered World War II? He certainly knew how to cut corruption in the military-industrial complex.
Harry now sounds like a Palin-maverick to me.
In the end, perhaps the 2008 primaries and election were just a rehearsal for both Sarah Palin and Hillary Clinton. By 2012, they will be facing off in that presidential election.
I think the female Harry Truman's experiences as mayor, governor and VP candidate will have sunk into the American mentality far enough for them to realize that Sarah Palin did it mainly by herself … without any help from Bill Clinton.
In addition, should Palin become President, she would … unlike Harry Truman … govern without the likes of Henry A. Wallace Progressives surrounding her.
Finally, judging from the recent Vice-Presidential debate, Joe Biden is no Harry Truman. Harry would have known the difference between Hezbollah and Syria.
"Give ‘em hell, Sarah!"
