Over the past few days I have been thinking about what is at the heart of this extreme hostility, by the Democrats and the liberal-leaning media, towards Sarah Palin, but political strategist Dick Morris in his column for Townhall.com got exactly to the absolute truth before me:
"Basically, it's this: John McCain only endangers Democratic chances of victory this November, but Sarah Palin is an existential threat to the [existence of the] Democratic Party.
...Democrats can't stomach seeing the feminist movement's impetus for greater female political participation and empowerment "hijacked" by a pro-life woman who espouses traditional values. They must obliterate her, lest her popularity eat away at their party's core.
...She may become the first woman in national office - yet the Democrats, feminists and liberals can't control her, and that burns them up.
Elections come and go, but Palin is a far more fundamental threat to the Democratic Party."
You nailed the truth, Mr. Morris.
