It is nothing short of astonishing that just the mention of Sarah Palin's name can cause the left to go absolutely crazy. The leftist Palin hate site Huffington Post, which seems to have a surfeit of Mommy basement bloggers, ran an article relating Sarah and Todd Palin's support of Chick-Fil-A;
Sarah Palin On Chick-Fil-A: Republican Shows Support Amid Gay Rights Debate
and the leftist response was a volcano of filth and hate-11,000 comments and counting. AT THIS LINK
On the one hand these people say Palin is "irrelevant". Yet, at the simple mention of her name, the Huffpost article only quoted a few words, and worse for them the image of an obvious happy married couple, they go berserk.
When has the VP candidate from a losing team ever have such massive media attention and hatred from the left four years later? Actually never. Dick Cheney gets his share of condemnation but in nothing like the incredible volume that Palin gets.
I am at a loss for the explanation of this unique phenomenon. I originally put it down to sexual frustration being an integral aspect of leftism but that alone doesn't explain this volume of hate.
The only other contributing factors might be that Palin, in her very being contradicts the leftist world-view. That is they can't believe that a woman can be pro-life, to the ultimate degree as Palin has illustrated.That a woman can be an activist and not be a leftist which contradicts the leftist view that conservative men want their women to be in the kitchen etc.
That the Palin's are obviously mutually supportive, are in love, happily married and have a loving supportive family might also be part of their hate-especially for the divorced,ugly leftist women.
Also part of this incredible hatred must be that she is seen as a threat to the Obama administration and Democratic candidates in general. they keep saying she is irrelevant, yet she keeps backing candidate after candidate who win and she was instrumental in helping the Tea Party bring a crushing defeat on the Dem's in 2010.
These are some of the reasons for the incredible Palin hatred, but there must be more to have such an outpouring of hate as seen at the Huffpost site. What is your opinion?
