Palin Won’t Follow a Losing Script
Yeah. You know, this is probably a good way to put this. The media, for two years has been trying to Palinize Palin — they’ve been trying to destroy her — and what’s happening here is she’s turning the tables on them and she’s Palinizing them, and the Republican Ruling Class is furious. The Republican Ruling Class is furious that Palin, going to all these states on her bus tour, is not coordinating with local Republican organizations, and there’s saying, “This ain’t cool! This is not cool, because if she turns out to be running she doesn’t need to be making enemies out of all these people.” But there’s another way to look at that, and that is: She’s not following a losing script.
It’s fascinating to watch this Palin stuff. They hate her, they despise her, they are frustrated that they haven’t destroyed her. They can’t believe she’s still smiling. They can’t believe she’s still drawing crowds. They can’t believe that she’s enjoying life. They can’t believe her family is still together. They can’t believe her husband hasn’t walked out on her. They can’t believe any of this. Folks, you know this as well as I do: When they set out to destroy you, they mean just that — and Palin’s not playing along with the script. She’s not acting destroyed. She’s not asking for forgiveness. She’s not begging them to leave her alone. She’s not changing in order to make them lighten up or anything. She’s just looking at ’em and smiling.
“Oh, you want some more of it? Here it is,” and they’re beside themselves. They are literally beside themselves. Now, there are two kinds of people in the world: Those who understand Sarah Palin and those who pretend they don’t. Ah, yes! (interruption) Yes, Snerdley. I say what I mean; I mean what I say; I love hearing myself say it. I’ll be happy to explain this. I’ll be ecstatically happy to explain this. There are two kinds of people in the world: Those who understand Palin and those who pretend that they don’t — and by the way, they pretend that they don’t understand her for all kinds of reasons (none of them good). I’ll explain here in just a second.
