Addressing Coulter about Sarah Palin, the Great One, had this to say in defense of our First Lady.
|Beck was the architect of this Sept '10 rally, but|
Palin played a significant role. It is not known if
Coulter or Ingraham attended.

the Tea Party, there.
I had great hopes for Sarah Louise Palin and her conservative credentials from the moment it was clear that she was resigning. So much so, that within two hours of her resignation, I had post my opinion as to "what would happen next," following Sarah's forced departure from the governorship . . . . . . . . . and it did not involve quitting. In my first "Palin post," I predicted that she was quitting as governor to join the very new TEA Party movement. The opening salvo of the Movements national protest took place on April 15th of 2009 and involved hundred of thousands of Americans. Jim DeMint, Michele Bachmann, Dick Army and others were players in the beginnings of this movement and that Tax Day protest.
Sarah resigned her state office 10 weeks later (July 3rd, 2009), to begin the rest of her life as a TEA party patriot. The next day, July 4, a second TEA party demonstration was held and, suddenly, the national Marxist Media realized that they had an opposition movement on their hands. Fourteen months later, Sept. 12 of 2010, Palin played a key role in Beck's Honoring America. She had written her first book, selling some 3 million copies making it the #1 non-fiction book for the year 2010. An October 2010 Washington Post canvass of 647 local Tea Party organizers asked "which national figure best represents your groups?" and got the following responses: no one 34% (it is, after all, a true grassroots movement), Sarah Palin 14%, Glenn Beck 7%, Jim DeMint 6%, Ron Paul 6%, Michele Bachmann 4%. Polsters Rasmussen and Schoen (2010) conclude that "She is the symbolic leader of the movement, and more than anyone else has helped to shape it" (Scott Rasmussen and Doug Schoen Mad As Hell (2010) pp. 154).
By contrast, what has Laura Ingrham and Ann Coulter done, and I say "by contrast." Ingraham does talk, and Coulter does harsh satire, and we enjoy the contributions of each, but Sarah Palin is the giant in their dressing rooms and Levine has set the record straight.
