I am having second thoughts on whether the media attention on Sarah Palin is a good thing. It is a good thing for one specific reason. Sarah Palin keeps the misinformed segment of the population engaged on her every word. The media gives her undeserving gravitas and a make believe sense that she actually has what it takes to be President.
Just as in the past America, inasmuch as it is a liberal democracy has supported dictatorships across the world to exert maximum control with minimal effort over the populations of said dictatorships. Setting up Sarah Palin as a grandiose leader to her millions of followers will make her discrediting the discrediting of a movement to many. Remember how fast America turned on Bush when the case was made.
Progressives and Liberals must start laying the ground work with concrete actions to peel off those who are not irreversibly indoctrinated. They must be ready with a factual narrative that make the Progressive/Liberal point of view palatable for a group that has been resistant mostly because of all the false information they have on what Liberalism & Progressivism has done to move this country from the dark ages.
If Americans realized that had it not been for a Liberal & Progressive agenda, women would still be unable to vote, blacks would not be able to vote or even necessarily be citizens, social security would not exist, Medicare would not exist, protection to the disabled would be non-existent, Pell grants would not exist, Civil Rights would not exist, and many more middleclass centric policies would not exist. Those on the Right whether they are Republicans or Democrats are on the wrong side of history.
