Jai Sarah! – Palin in India

Posted on: March 17, 2011

(Note: Jai, a Sanskrit word meaning victory is pronounced with the sound of English letter J, rhymes with rye, and is not related to the Spanish sport of jai alai)

 

Update:

Just alerted by the C4P website that Sarah’s speech will be livestreamed at this site on Saturday at 9 AM EDST.

Update:

She is there!

I am very excited to visit India, she exulted upon landing.

We await the details of the speech.

Sarah Palin, a billion enterprising, freedom-loving, commonsense-laden business savvy Indians are waiting to love you. Go conquer them!

Here is a lusty, cheery, unabashed note of welcome to India.

The New York Sun, in an article by the Indian analyst Pranay Gupte, offers this contrast with Obama visit a few months back:

Mrs. Palin is certain to be well received [snip]

Indians have traditionally looked favorably at Republicans, with the possible exception of Richard Nixon, during whose presidency Washington openly sided with Pakistan as India assisted the former territory of East Pakistan to gain independence from Islamabad and establish itself as Bangladesh.

Two years after George W. Bush retired from the White House, he’s still held in high regard in New Delhi on account of his unflinching support for the deal under which India has been allowed to buy equipment for its civilian nuclear program. [snip]

The other reason that Mrs. Palin will be warmly received is that Indians like women leaders.

Mrs. Palin is bound to be impressed by how many women legislators there are in India’s national parliament, and in the assemblies of the countries (sic) 28 states and seven federal territories. [snip]

And given her personality, Mrs. Palin most definitely will make friends in India, which has already begun souring on President Obama for his perceived failure to follow through on promises made on his state visit. Happily, Mrs. Palin will be a political tourist; she will have no obligation to make any pledges, other than of accelerating her personal friendships in a land known for its warmth and hospitality.

Indians were less than happy that, however subtly, the president sought to underscore that, in Washington’s view at least, there was parity between an economy of $1.4 trillion, and a neighboring one – Pakistan – whose GDP is $167 billion.

Unlike India, whose democracy is loud and messy, and whose economy is on a trajectory of sustained economic growth, Pakistan, also a nuclear power, is clearly a failed state.

Interestingly, the website IndiaReloadedTV notes that all this Palin hoopla may come to naught in view of Indians being pre-occupied with the furor resulting from wikileaks published in The Hindu the other day. The paper lent support to BJP allegations in parliament that the Congress Party won the no-confidence vote in 2008 via bribery.

Now that’s interesting. Since the issue involved the nuclear deal signed by George Bush, a Republican, how convenient that the wikileaks were published just on the eve of the visit of another potential GOP contender?  I mean, first the NYSun publishes a laudatory, optimistic article on Sarah Palin visiting India. And voila, a few days later, among all American media the NYTimes alone highlights The Hindu somehow just timing its publication to suck the oxygen out of the public sphere, and the spotlight off Sarah Palin’s visit, and in the process embarrasses the deal, it’s engineers and the deal makers involved. Makes one go, hmmm..

We certainly hope that Sarah Palin enjoys herself during the visit to India, and then Israel on the way back. We know she will be wearing The pin.

  • 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. La David Johnson, CNN has shown repeatedly (here, here, and here) that it wants to have it both ways in attacking John Kelly for his Thursday remarks but bemoaning criticism of Democratic Congresswoman Frederica Wilson (Fla.). Thursday’s CNN Tonight served as one such example, whet […]

    Michael Bennett has one fervent imagination and a knack for making news.

    On Thursday, MSNBC’s Brian Williams finally mentioned the words “Russia,” “uranium” and “Clinton” in the same segment BUT it was only to dismiss President Donald Trump’s criticism of the media’s failure to cover this week’s new revelations in the growing scandal.
