Wow! Palin Paid $14,000 To Decorate A Bus! ABC News and Assorted Media in Frenzy!

The bus in question: A Bargain compared to one dinner for two at the White House - image ABC News Blogs

It isn’t even August (the approximate date given by Sarah Palin for an announcement vis a vis the 2012 GOP Presidential nomination), and yet, one would think that as she has yet to announce, there would be a little less focus on the woman the media loathes to the point of obsession. Case in point, as the FEC candidate, party and PAC filings are available online to one and all: ABC News (blog) has it’s pantyhose in a knot over the fact that Palin's PAC (not Palin herself) paid “almost $14000 to decorate her tour bus”!

Apparently those over at NBC, although working in media, have no clear idea of what it might cost to say, “wrap a bus”, or even “buy commercial air time”. Consider when one “wraps a bus” one must pay for the graphic artist (designer), the production (placing graphics on wrap), the wrap itself and the installation!

Palin appears to have managed to get a bargain.

Go figure, she is, after all, a fiscal conservative.

Simply because, although unannounced, the media is treating Sarah Palin as a direct rival (or threat if you will) to the President (Barack Obama), it is surprising that they did not compare his about to be cancelled: $36,000 per couple birthday dinner he is throwing at the White House! on yes, your guessed it, the taxpayers dime. Therefore, if one is going to compare, Governor Palin’s bus wrap at $14,000 would last at a minimum of 24 months, with perhaps a need for a touch up now and again, while the Presidents Birthday, for one couple alone, at approximately twice the cost will last a fleeting few hours.

It is precisely this type of insanity from the media that has more than a few American’s looking at who would be the best choice for president (assuming that Barack Obama will not make a second term and will be defeated in 2012) - As no serious challenge has come from the left, one can also assume that Obama will be the candidate, this leaves the general public with several GOP alternatives from which to choose – In today’s economic climate, which is not, by the way, improving any, debt ceiling or no, (yet another crisis), more moderates (from all parties) are taking a hard look at the women who would be President, rather than the men – simply because they walk the walk and talk the talk when it comes to spending wisely and cutting costs when it is possible. This may explain Michelle Bachmann’s meteoric rise in the polls against Tax or Fee former Governor’s Tim and Mitt, as well Bachmann’s ability to answer a question, and stand by her convictions, even if it is not the popular stance in Washington or the media (see: Debt Ceiling). Should Palin enter (and it is a likelihood despite the pundits nay saying - which is more like praying) the race, she would, possibly be neck and neck with the Congresswoman, and honestly trump her given her gubernatorial experience, and name recognition.

The hysteria will be such in newsrooms, editorial boards and 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, and the resultant broadcasts or printed word will reflect the aforementioned – when Sarah Palin announces, that it would appear to even the most average of American’s (from an elite perspective), that all of the aforementioned have clearly lost their minds. (Finally the non-compliant light bulb appears).

The question keeps being asked and answered: Can Sarah Palin win the Presidency (or Michelle Bachmann) and there are more nay’s, she’s not running (Palin) than any yeas. Here’s the slogan for those who feel the need to have something silly to say in order to affirm a choice: (speaking clearly about those moderate Democrats) “Yes, she Can!!”
(Borrowed from Deval Patrick and Barack Obama who borrowed it from Deval Patrick (Governor of Massachusetts) Easy to Say, Affirms A Choice, Simple to Memorize, and somehow Meaningless at the same time when applied to anything other than a woman winning the White House.)

A Side Note: Both Sarah Palin (unannounced) and Michelle Bachmann (announced) are seeing an increase of attacks from blogs and the media, which will continue unabated (one can assume) through the primary season. Of course, since the primary is for Conservatives and Unenrolled (or Independents) and those Democrats who have lost complete faith in Obama and are considered moderate, no matter what “bombshell” comes from the media, it is fairly apparent that they will make a decision based upon substance, rather than hysteria, and not take the advice of a media who is obviously hostile to the concept of conservatism in any respect.

To reiterate: $14,000 bus wrap that will last over a year, or $36,000 dinner that will last, at most, several hours.

It will not be the social issues, it will be the spending issues and the ever increasing unemployment (or the unemployment staying the same) and it will not matter if someone sat on a board as a Christian Counselor, or if someone misspoke about this historical date or no (Bachmann), it will depend upon whether or not the individual instills confidence, stands up for themselves without changing their tune fifty times in fifty debates/press conferences/or what-have-you, that the individual can relate to those who vote (rather than those who tell someone how to vote: see Hollywood and the media as well as your professor or high school teacher).

It is beyond time for leadership that has the stamina and self-confidence to make a decision based on fiscal sanity, and who better than a woman? One who would make the necessary cuts in the budget without throwing out the baby with the bathwater? One who is a warrior and a mother? Most importantly one who puts America first, ahead of party, and ahead of politics, as both of these women have shown they are more than capable of doing. Although this blogger is waiting for Sarah Palin, and has endorsed her wholeheartedly, both as a strong candidate (based upon past performance), and as someone who would stand up, not just to our media (most of which, when she is elected, will move to another country along with half of Hollywood (suggesting France), and spend weeks if not months in therapy), but to the nations that stand in direct opposition to American exceptionalism. She will stand not for one party or the other, but for the people.
