Who Said This?

“The soul of the Tea Party is the people who belong to it — everyday Americans who grow our food, run our small businesses, teach our children how to read, serve the less fortunate and fight our wars. They’re folks in small towns and cities across this nation who saw what was happening to our country and decided to get involved. Thank God for them. Many of these good Americans had never been involved in their government before, but now they attend town hall meetings and participate in online forums. They write letters to the editor. They sign up to be precinct leaders and run for local office and support other independent patriots. They have the courage to stand up and speak out.”

Of course, Sarah Palin wrote this in her USA Op-Ed this week.  This lady has absolutely stunned the opposition with the path she has chosen.  The opposition hate her, no they loath her very existence, simply because she has become their most prominent threat.  They’ve thrown everything at her to minimize her effect.  Through all of that she has grown in popularity immensely.  I’m watching her objectively.  With the awareness of the necessary requirement that a candidate is partially judged by how he/she comes across on video, I sometimes cringe at some of her responses.  It’s never the content that makes me wince; its the sometimes quirky nature of her demeanor and voice.   However, I’ve come to believe that she will be a major factor in America’s political landscape.  During the next year the public will decide her fate as to whether she will run for major public office.  I think she’ll need to made all of the right moves to make that happen.
