Politics Palin's Polar Pounce: Purely Prodigious

The opinions expressed by columnists are their own and do not necessarily represent the views of Townhall.com.

Before Wednesday night, Alaska Governor Sarah Palin already had a reputation as a steely-eyed killer of large, wild beasts. But today is there any doubt that Palin is also a daunting hunter of menacing critics and political corruption? Using disarming good looks and apex-predator skills, Palin cunningly lured the rabid-cutthroat-liberal media straight into a mortifying ambush.

The emboldened mob of Obama’s attack dogs foolishly rushed in to take a bite from what they deemed as Palin’s greatest weakness --inexperience. But to the horror of Obama supporters everywhere, Palin’s misleading “weakness” is actually one of the McCain camp’s calculated strengths.

Palin can now bring up executive experience at every opportunity: “My critics say I am inexperienced, and there may be some truth to that. But at least I am experienced. What executive experience do our opponents have? In fact, let’s talk specifically about my qualifications and achievements versus Barack Obama’s sheer void of any meaningful accomplishment.”

Is it any wonder Democrats would now prefer to avoid this issue?

As the McCain camp’s beautiful strategy continues to unfold, Obama’s mercenaries have realized their blunder too late. They cannot free themselves from the unforgiving jaws of reality. Consequently, the remainder of their marauding pack redirected its sites on much easier prey --namely Palin’s powerless, adolescent daughter.

Scavengers naturally behave this way. They tend to feed on the young and weak. What is most disturbing about these particular jackals is that they would surely be more euphoric if they could take down Palin’s unborn grandchild –targeting completely defenseless prey is the pack’s preferred “choice.”

In Texas, it is not uncommon to see coyote carcasses dangling from fence posts – a sign that the ranchers have had enough of the wretched creatures preying on vulnerable and valuable calves. Last night, Palin metaphorically draped Obama’s surrogates over the White House fences, and today America’s aghast elitists are trying to recover from the awesome display of Palin’s grace and power –this is a mama who can whip Obama and Biden with John McCain tied behind her back!

Since America’s left wing snobs have probably never watched an episode of Wild Kingdom, they failed to understand the effect that watching hyenas rip mouthfuls of flesh from baby animals has on the average viewer. Normal people tend to cheer for the protective mothers who charge in bravely to engage the opportunistic, snarling scoundrels attacking the mothers’ offspring. After Wednesday night, normal people are enthusiastically cheering for Sarah Palin and her impressive show of wit and guts.

Obama’s surviving pack members may continue to rip viciously at Palin’s vulnerable daughter, but the Alaskan mom has made it clear how she will deal with them --expect the White House’s fence posts to fill up quickly.

The deafening shot that Palin fired off last night has sent the Democratic Party into survival mode. The more they attack her inexperience, the more Americans realize that the community organizer’s greatest accomplishments are his own autobiographical memoirs. If they continue to publicly humiliate her teenage daughter, Palin’s personal bravery will inspire the rest of America to fight back, too. If they continue to mock her gender, they can kiss this election goodbye. If they would have the wisdom to concede that her political positions are simply better than their own, then they would truly have change they could believe in.

Palin is an answered prayer. She is exactly what America and John McCain needed. She is a proven leader. And leaders have an obligation to inspire others to do what is in the nation’s best interest.

While the opposing ticket peddles entitlements and more government dependence to those who believe America owes them something, Sarah Palin alone provides courage, inspiration, and progress to the country she seeks to repay for the historic opportunity that only America could have provided.

Was Palin a strategic pick for vice president? Yes. She is single handedly obliterating the opposition, so it is probably more accurate to say that Sarah Palin was a brilliant-strategic pick.
