Sarah Palin IS Woman of the Year – here is why …

Posted on: December 19, 2009

Sarah Palin is by all measures the one person who made a real difference in the country during 2009.

She is undoubtedly the Person of the Year!

She is the most talked about, the most closely followed, and the most sustained leader on issues. Above all, the one public figure who influenced most the discussion of policy issues.

Despite leaving office, she held the imagination of the nation and the world, her speech in Hong Kong was universally reported on, and her book the most eagerly awaited political event of the year.

Throughout the year, for better or worse, Sarah Palin continued to hold the nation and the world in thrall; in or out of office, she spoke, spoke out and spoke her mind clearly.

To paraphrase an old ad slogan,

When Sarah Palin speaks, people listen!

This is all the more remarkable considering how much oxygen is sucked out of the public sphere by our President, a man most famous for oratory, bold moves and new directions, and policy initiatives.

Not only did Sarah Palin occupy the same public space of debate and discussion as the president, but she also out-shone him in polls. Most recently, a double-digit advantage is due to the ex-Governor: while Obama’s ratings sink, Sarah’s hold steady or rise!

Remember, she holds no office, no position of authority; she functioned pretty much as a private citizen.

Without an office or title, Sarah Palin dominated the public arena on the health care debate. She single-handedly altered the debate for ever with a simple Facebook post, and the now legendary phrase ‘death panels.

The ex-Governor weathered severe criticism by all sorts of groups, only to survive, thrive and come up strong.

In terms of a compelling personal story, she remains an equal match to the young occupant of the White House. Not only does she represent something unusual on our political scene, Sarah continues to enthrall her base and following with unabated enthusiasm. In fact, while the base of Obama seems to be weakening, that of Sarah is strengthening.

Palin gives feminists a run for their money. She shakes up the old, liberal-biased presumptions about female politicians and feminism. In the process, Sarah won over a number of the PUMAs, independents and people hitherto uninterested in politics.

She is the one person most responsible for breathing confidence into a GOP that has been dispirited by the results of 2008 election. The conservative votes took heart from her personal strength, easy forbearance, her grace and charm. The typical GOP voter, at least the more conservative ones, and certainly those outside the pale of the RINO, drew courage and inspiration from the way Sarah Palin comported herself.

Amazingly, the number of blogs dedicated to Sarah continue to increase!

‘Going Rogue’ continues to be a best-seller, after being much talked about, and eagerly awaited. Even the most grudging critics have to admit, Sarah had a most sensational book tour!

From the pages of Facebook, Sarah Palin rules the political discourse on the right.

By merely speaking her mind, Sarah Palin commands attention, and activism.

The only way this estimate of her might could change is if it turns out that she demonstrates a more decisive influence the mid-term elections of 2010 – a prospect not that far-fetched!

Oh, yes, by simply being Sarah, Palin is Woman of the Year, 2009!

  • Slaying Salmon July 15, 2014
    Home from commercial fishing grounds in Bristol Bay, and here's Piper helping slay salmon to market! A good season for wild reds on the Nushagak, Piper hopes to make enough to cover, maybe, a cell phone bill. Do you agree, as I’ve said before, we need more girls holding up fish in pics instead of holding up iPhones in selfies?!  It’s always wonderful re […]

  • It Takes a Village... to Slay a Salmon July 3, 2013
    The beauty of catching some of our Alaskan species with fins is the amount of meat harvested with each fish. Rod and reeling red salmon, or, my favorite, a big (or even not so big) halibut ensures you've got a few dinners taken care of even when feeding a bunch of people.We had a blast hauling in halibut in Homer a few days ago, despite the cold rain an […]
  • Commemorating the 150th Anniversary of Gettysburg June 30, 2013
    Today marks the beginning of the week-long ceremonies commemorating the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg. There will be a full re-enactment of the battle, discussions with panels of historians, and of course a re-reading of the Gettysburg Address. But as Lincoln affirmed when he dedicated that hallowed ground, nothing we say or do can “add or de […]
  • #SOTUGottaBKiddingMe February 13, 2013
    If you missed President Obama’s State of the Union address last night, you didn’t miss much – especially if you watched any of his past four State of the Union addresses. We heard the same recycled rhetoric, and we heard his Orwellian declaration that the cornucopia of new federal programs he proposed, as well as his intention to eradicate world poverty, wou […]
  • New Year's Resolution to Keep the Faith! January 1, 2013
    Best wishes to everyone for a happy New Year! In the coming days there will be a great deal of debate about the goings-on in the political arena and the shenanigans in Washington. Constitutional commonsense conservatives must stay engaged and hold our “leaders” accountable to the voice of average everyday hard working Americans or we will very soon become an […]

    Instead of being responsible in this sad dispute concerning the death of Sgt.

Thursday’s CNN Tonight served as one such example, whet […]
