Sarah’s media smack-down

Posted by Richard on July 28, 2009

Here's a great couple of minutes from Sarah Palin's farewell speech in Fairbanks on Sunday, delivering a double smack-down to some ("only some") members of the media:

If you've got 20 minutes to spare, watch the whole speech in these two 10-minute clips: [Part 1] [Part 2] (If you've only got 10 minutes, watch part 2.)

Here are a few quotes I liked: 

Be wary of accepting government largess. It doesn't come free and often, accepting it takes away everything that is free, melting into Washington's powerful "care-taking" arms will just suck incentive to work hard and chart our own course right out of us, and that not only contributes to an unstable economy and dizzying national debt, but it does make us less free.

We don't have to feel that we must beg an allowance from Washington, except to beg the allowance to be self-determined.

We're no longer a frontier outpost on the periphery of the world's greatest nation. Now, as a contributor and a securer of America, we can attain our destiny in the promise of our motto "North to the Future." See, the pressing issue of our time, it's energy independence, because there is an inherent link between energy and security, and energy and prosperity. Alaska will lead with energy, we will prove you can be both pro-development and pro-environment, because no one loves their clean air and their land and their wildlife and their water more than an Alaskan. We will protect it.

The entire transcript is here.

The critics in the elite media (Republican and Democrat), the Eastern intelligentsia (Republican and Democrat), urban sophisticates everywhere (Republican and Democrat), and the Hollywood hip (Democrat and left-of-Democrat) continue to demean and dismiss this woman — in much the same way that the same groups scoffed at Ronald Reagan 30 years ago. History does have a way of repeating itself…
