From the fringe left Daily Kos to mainstream media outlets such as CNN and MSNBC learned a tough lesson on Thursday as they awoke to find Sarah Palin's Autobiography
Going Rogue: An American Life atop the pre-order best sellers lists and daily sales boards for Amazon, Barnes and Noble and nearly every other book retailer websites. The announcement of Palin's release date on Wednesday caused an outbreak of attacks on the former Vice Presidential candidate that would lead you to believe that she had announced a Presidential campaign rather than a book release.
Thousands of Internet and print articles attacking Palin flew into circulation while unrepentant liberal networks such as MSNBC filled every available minute of airtime with their obsession over the Palin. The magnitude of the attacks was ridiculously overwhelming, especially in light of the nations current economic and national security woes. Adding to the ridiculous nature of these attacks were the reality that the book will not even be released until mid-November.
So the question comes to rest, Why? Is a hatred of the values and political beliefs of Palin or a deeper rooted fear that a silent majority of the nation shares those same conservative values? Most likely, its a combination of both. Any reasonable person would have to respect Palin after the political smack-down she has experienced in the past year. After a year of constant personal attacks directed at at herself and her family with no correlation to her political positions, she still refuses to leave the national political scene.
Unlike her political opponents, Palin has not resorted to the blame game or launched retaliatory attacks upon her protractors. As a result, the utter hypocrisy of liberal establishment has been exposed. If Republicans or conservatives were to ever launch personal attacks upon a female Democrat, the cries of misogyny would echo throughout every media outlet. Groups such as NOW would launch an all out assault upon the individual in an effort to discredit them. The hypocrisy in regards to Palin isn't much different than the hypocrisy displayed between Joe Wilson calling the President a liar and Alan Grayson telling Americans that Republicans wanted them to die and were engaged in an American Holocaust.
The liberal derangement directed at Palin is aimed at discrediting her to a point that she may no longer pose a threat in 2012. Although this obsessive derangement may ultimately derail Palin's chances it may also lead to the emergence of a more threatening candidate, a relatively soft-spoken, well-spoken, intelligent and increasing statesmen-like former Speaker of the House.
Regardless, Wednesday provided a solid victory for Palin as the deranged attacks upon her backfired and she accomplished the feat of unseating the Internet sales ranking of two newly released best-sellers. The increasing silence of the liberal media on Thursday was a direct result of the phenomenal sales that their attacks led too. But rest assured, when mid-November arrives the lessons learned this week by the liberal community will be forgotten as they once again fall victim to Palin Derangement Syndrome.
