A Palin cult is just as bad as an Obama one

to paraphrase my favorite president Grover Cleveland. Camp of the Saints rightly points out that if we treat Sarah the way the media treated President Obama during the last election, we will not only be wrong but we will be doing ourselves and her no favors:

Friendly advice should be taken as such. And conservatives should never fall for a cult of personality. Sarah Palin is an admirable lady. She is not a savior. ‘Nuff said.


Mindless idolatry
is no way to pick a candidate. Remember the line from the movie The Buccaneer

British Captain: I may have been misinformed. I understood that Mr. LaFitte was in command.

Lafitte: If your offer is good it will stand up under fire.

Do we have so little faith in Palin’s ability to stand up under fire or to recover from a mistake? If our candidate and our positions are good, then they can stand criticism.. If not then not only will we lose, we will deserve to. For Reference see Coakley, Martha.

    I like Gov. Palin a lot, but this is not the first, or even the second or third time that she has made plans, changed plans, backed out of an event, etc. this particular aspect of her image/time management needs big improvement, or it will really hurt her credibility.
