Are you an intellectual snob, and turn your nose up and close your mind and ears when it comes to Sarah Palin?

Do you think that we, us Democrats and Liberals, should not give her the time of day, because that somehow justifies her existence?

She’s had her five minutes of fame, you say, and don’t give her credence by continually talking about her and making her relevant.


Sarah Palin is relevant, with her thousands of followers lining up and even spending the night for her arrival at bookstores or Costco’s for her book signings.

Democrats and Liberals, and yes, even Republicans laugh at her, but she has thousands of followers and believers and we should not brush her off as fluff.

Yes, she is fluff, but not to her followers, and her followers are the teabaggers.

Teabaggers are folks, young and mainly old, that are disenfranchised by the system that gives our money to Wall Street instead of Main Street.

Teabaggers are the gun toting, right-to-lifers, but more, they are regular, middle class Americans that are angry.

Aren’t we all angry?

Is it fair for the entitled, the elite to reap such benefits from the government, while the rest of us suffer and struggle?

Yes, Sarah is one of them, but like Ronald Reagan, she has folks fooled in thinking that she is a maverick, and more in line with common Americans that are just trying to get by when it comes to our government.

She portrays the anti-thesis of our elected officials and Supreme Court that are on the side of the rich and corporations.

Are we so much different than the teabaggers when it comes to everyday life?

Yes, they are racists, or so the media makes it appear.

Yes, they are anti-choice, or so the media makes it appear.

Yes, they hate homosexuals, or so the media makes it appear.

Yes, they are against powerful women, yet they support Sarah Palin, who is a wife and mother and powerful in her own right.

We’re not that far apart when it comes to the things Sarah Palin appears to stand for when it comes to her followers.

We have more in common than differences, and that’s a hard pill to swallow.

We Democrats and Liberals do have an elitist attitude, whereby we shun those who follow and admire Sarah, and urge Sarah to ‘Run, Sarah, Run.’

But when it comes down to the basics, we have more in common with her followers than we like to admit.

Oh, yes, she’s a liar, and has her followers fooled, but we should listen to those who follow her, not for their love of Sarah, but for what they are saying.

We all agree that the rich among us are getting the government handouts, while we pay.

We, the working class, have seen our wages stagnate, while corporations have never seen such profits.

We, the working class, see our benefits fly out the window due to greed, while we struggle to pay for health insurance.

We, the working class, see our country’s deficits grow for wars, while we slave away to make ends meet.

We really have no differences of opinion when it comes to the teabaggers and Sarah Palin followers.

That’s what people are angry about – it’s the disconnect between Washington DC and we the people.

We, who are Democrats and Liberals and we know the MSM sucks big time and favors the corporations, but we are not as smart as we think.

They are playing us, too, with the divisiveness, in leading us Democrats and Liberals to believe it’s all about race or a woman’s choice, or gay marriage.

We are all being played.

Stop and take a minute to listen to the people.

We are not as divided as the government or the MSM makes us out to be.

We have more in common with the teabaggers than is portrayed, and it’s time for us all to unite and stand against the corporations.
