From American Thinker on Sarah Palin “Achiever of the year 2014”:
It would be the height of churlishness for even the most inveterate leftist to deny the import of someone who made Time magazine’s “100 Most Influential People” list, and then the Smithsonian Institution’s “100 Most Significant Americans Of All Time” list. Both affirmations were earned by former Alaska governor and vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin.
To then accept Governor Palin as “American Achiever of the Year 2014″ would be for most, if not all on the left (and to be fair, many in the GOP) no doubt a bridge too far. However, such partisanship should not stand in the way of a general acknowledgement of what was a remarkable year for Palin.
Governor Palin endorsed 22 candidates for various offices during the midterm finals, including senators, governors, lieutenant governors, congressmen, and attorneys general. Of those so endorsed, an incredible 20 were elected – contrasted with, for example, Hillary Clinton’s record of 8 wins out 24 endorsed candidates
For all her detractors’ cries of “irrelevance” and “she’s just a reality show entertainer” (those two being among the nicer epithets), Palin goes on, election cycle after election cycle, populating Congress with her endorsed candidates in a cost-effective manner, and in such numbers that the likes of Karl Rove with his 1% success rate can surely view only with hidden admiration, if not downright envy.
In 2014, Governor Palin is deservedly the “Achiever of The Year.”
Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin said Feb 15 on Eric Bolling’s final show on Fox Business that if the GOP primary/caucus season ended in a brokered convention and she were summoned to serve, she would answer the call.
She has been working tirelessly for a brokered convention ever since she spoke well of Santorum before Iowa, stayed out of New Hampshire, spoke well of Newt Gingrich before South Carolina, stayed out of Florida and let Mitt and Newt destroy themselves in negative ads and comments, then admonishing them to be positive and encourage Santorum again in the caucuses, putting in a good word for Ron Paul every now and then.
She is running all right. As she prophetically said “This is going to be a campaign the likes of which we have never seen before” or words to that effect.
She has only four things to overcome: The republican establishment, the Media, the Democrat opposition and the career central bureaucrats. All she has in her corner is the people.
