There are few people in American politics inspire more passion either pro or con than Sarah Palin. There is a myth about Sarah Palin.
The myth of Sarah Palin is that Palin is an idiot.
Is Palin an idiot?
HBO’s Movie “Game Change” would have you think so. That film could be considered an in-kind contribution to the Democrat party and they sure want people to believe , Palin is raving lunatic.
The Republican establishment is jumping on that bandwagon too. They would like everyone to believe she’s as dump as a box of rocks.
However, the myth of Sarah Palin being an idiot is just that, a myth.
So much so, that Sarah Palin just challenged Barack Obama to a debate. On her Facebook page, Palin said:
“Exhibit A in these diversionary tactics is an absurd new attack ad President Obama has released taking my comments out of context. I’m not running for any office, but I’m more than happy to accept the dubious honor of being Barack Obama’s “enemy of the week” if that includes the opportunity to debate him on the issues Americans are actually concerned about.”
Wow. Obama was just thrown a hanging curve ball, but don’t expect him to swing at it.
If Palin were really the idiot that the left believes she is, Obama would have jumped all over that offer. Think about this for a second. This would have been a great opportunity for Obama to boost himself and go after a major conservative figure. If Sarah Palin were really stupid, it would be a no brainer for him to take her up on her offer.
Palin’s offer to debate the issues would be great for Obama. It takes all of the attention away from the Republicans who are actually running for President.
So why doesn’t Obama take the bait?
It is very simple. Obama knows Sarah Palin is pretty smart and he also knows he is not the debater that a lot of people want to say that he is.
That is the great secret here. Unfortunately the media is never going to report this. The drive by media wants to continue the narrative that Palin is dumb.
I, for one, would pay good money to see Sarah Palin debate Barack Obama. It would be great entertainment and it would be fun to watch the myth of Barrack Obama’s “genius” destroyed on primetime TV by the smart and politically savvy former Governor of Alaska.
Game change? How about, “Game on!”
Great post Michael. You are right on all fronts.
Her first question should be, "Here is my birth certificate and voter registration card and Social Security card..my I see yours, Mr. Sotero??? When were you living in Connecticut???
Michael, good one!
Her second action should be to file a Federal Law requirement that Obama show and tell.
