A good couple of articles on the Sarah Palin Hillary Clinton comparison.-
Goldberg points out that Ms. Clinton doesn’t really have any accomplishments to point to during her long career, as lawyer, first lady, senator, and secretary of state. She hasn’t actually said anything of interest, except perhaps the ghoulish dismissal of the murder of four American public servants, “What difference does it make?”
Contrast that rather thin record with that of Sarah Palin, whose partial term as governor was largely successful, featuring budget cuts, measures against official corruption, and approval of a gas pipeline. She was an immensely popular governor before the Democratic attack machine used the very ethics laws she caused to be passed to drive her out of office with frivolous lawsuits, using a loophole in the law that required public officials so charged to pay for their own defense. Palin, who was at the time not at all wealthy, was obliged to either resign as governor or else be driven into bankruptcy.
Before her resignation, she was a candidate for vice president in 2008 and providing the one element of hope and excitement in an otherwise lackluster campaign by the candidate on the top of the ticket, John McCain.
Palin went on to be the driving force in the political tsunami that elected hordes of Republicans in 2010. Even in 2012, a bad year in general for Republicans, Palin managed to make a difference, helping to elect GOP candidates like Ted Cruz, now a senator from Texas who has become an affliction to the overly comfortable political establishment.
Palin’s speeches and other public performance are always memorable. Whether it is decrying “death panels” that are a part of Obamacare or mocking New York Mayor Bloomberg with the visual aid of a large capacity soft drink cup, Palin never fails to delight her fans and enrage her enemies.
