“We are now standing in the face of the greatest historical confrontation humanity has gone through. I do not think that wide circles of the American society or wide circles of the Christian community realize this fully. We are now facing the final confrontation between the Church and the anti-Church, of the Gospel and the anti-Gospel. This confrontation lies within the plans of divine providence. It is a trial which the whole Church… must take up.” Karol Cardinal Wotyla (Sept. 1976)

Why is Sarah Palin Hated So Much?

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.

The U.S. Senate and U.S. House of Representatives are national offices; women hold those posts and have for a while. But let's just say it -- she could become the first woman PRESIDENT, and that's what scares liberals and their agenda. It has nothing to do with women or race but with politics. And yes, their future existence. Kind of fun to watch them squirm!

I can't imagine what American politics would look like without the two major parties. Then again, I can't imagine what American politics would look like with any sort of bipartisanship, either, but I'm told that it wasn't too many decades ago that things weren't so hostile between the parties.

I've discussed with friends my question of what the parties would look like if abortion was illegal, marriage was either 1) defined as between one man and one woman or 2) taken out of state hands completely... would the main issues be the war and immigration? Or would those two issues no longer be at hand because the issues of abortion and marriage will take so long to resolve?

Would it come down to the oil issue and economy? Healthcare? And what else would be "hot topics"? Would there be a better chance for bipartisanship?

Your thoughts?

They hate her because she is the antithesis of all Things Left Wing Liberal.

And do note that in hating Gov Palin, they're revealing how they feel about us--not to mention that in embracing her, we're revealing how we've always felt about them.

The leftists don't just despise HER: remember that.
