Prophecy, or plain common sense…

6 09 2009

In politics words often sound like just so much rhetoric when first spoken, just so much talk, and often we take them with a grain of salt. But hindsight, they say, is 20/20. Some people are criticized for they opinions when they speak, but we should be careful when we do so, for the room we leave at the end of the story for a “I told you so!” is more than plenty.

Her words were often laughed at as the words of a naive outsider, but as many tried to point out, sometimes you see better looking at things from a perspective removed from the status quo. Many back then scoffed at her, but now we know, as is said,  the rest of the story…

“But when the cloud of rhetoric has passed … when the roar of the crowd fades away … when the stadium lights go out, and those Styrofoam Greek columns are hauled back to some studio lot – what exactly is our opponent’s plan? What does he actually seek to accomplish, after he’s done turning back the waters and healing the planet?

The answer is to make government bigger … take more of your money … give you more orders from Washington … and to reduce the strength of America in a dangerous world. America needs more energy … our opponent is against producing it. Victory in Iraq is finally in sight … he wants to forfeit. Terrorist states are seeking nuclear weapons without delay … he wants to meet them without preconditions. Al Qaeda terrorists still plot to inflict catastrophic harm on America … he’s worried that someone won’t read them their rights? Government is too big … he wants to grow it. Congress spends too much … he promises more. Taxes are too high … he wants to raise them.” — Sarah Palin

Palin sure looks like a prophet, that is, as you noted, if you disregard common sense, which she has a lot of. Thanks for the reminder of what Sarah said.
