DLA For Sunday 061211

This one is just fun to watch.

Hey folks,

Ever try to be someone or something you are not. To please someone, impress someone, or because someone told you that you should be a certain way? Many people do. They put on various Personas. People see them at work or school, and they think of them this way or that. Yet at HOME they are nothing like the Persona they use.

There is an old saying, "I made you, I can break you." That is true no matter WHO the I is. If you let the work place, school, friends, or whatever, define you, make you, they can then break you. You give them power over your very Person.

This is why it is so refreshing whenever you meet someone who is who they are, 24-7. They do not change who they are to accommodate, whomever they are involved with. They have this attitude that you either like me or not. I am what and who I am.

This is one of the reasons some HATE Rush Limbaugh. He is who he is. Like him or hate him, it doesn't matter. This is why some people HATE Sarah Palin. She is who she is. But with Palin, it's "like me, be my friend, or get the HELL out of the way." {Smile}

Unlike most Politicians and Celebrities, who rely on the Establishment, who CARE what the Media says about them, who CARE what most people think of them, Palin is different. SHE doesn't NEED the Establishment, the Media, nor Public Praise. She is giving a talk, you want to hear it, come on down. If not, then just simply don't. However, people DO. By the THOUSANDS. She is popular DESPITE all the Media attempts to destroy her, make her look stupid, and even some on her own side. She is Popular and GROWING in popularity more and more AS the Media attempts to destroy her, make her look stupid, and even some on her own side. But even more than that, she is making THEM look stupid.

From forcing them to chase her all over the place by NOT playing along and giving them a schedule, she made them look like a Benny Hill sketch. Or Saturday Night Live for some of the YOUNGER readers. To things like THIS.

"He who warned, uh, the British that they weren’t gonna be takin’ away our arms, uh, by ringing those bells, and um, makin' sure as he’s riding his horse through town to send those warning shots and bells that we were going to be sure and we were going to be free, and we were going to be armed."
Oh they had a FIELD DAY with this one. They were coming out of the wood work. Finally they got something that she ACTUALLY said, that they can use to make her look STUPID. EVERYONE knows that Paul Revere rode through town waring the PEOPLE that the British were coming and he did NOT ring bells. OK. She just said that he warned the British. What a Dummkopf. Oh yeah they were having fun with this. They were laughing, pointing, look at the Stupid Girl. She will never beat Obama.

Problem is though? She is RIGHT! So NPR goes out and gets this Historian to make it official Palin is an Idiot. I bet they wish they hadn't NOW. So Professor Robert Allison The Chair of the History Department at Suffolk University in Boston went on NPR with Host Melissa Block. Melissa is just too exited to get him to denounce Palin. She is like, so tell us how wrong she is. I mean, he didn't warn the British and he did not ring the Bells right? He was a Blacksmith.

Prof. ALLISON: Well, he was - he also was a bell ringer. That is, he rang the bells at Old North Church as a boy. But he, personally, is not getting off his horse and going to ring bells. He's telling other people - and this is their system before Facebook, before Twitter, before NPR - this was the way you get a message out, is by having people ring church bells, and everyone knows there is an emergency.

And by this time, of course, the various town committees of safety, militia knew what the signals were, so they knew something was afoot. So this is no longer a secret operation for the British.
You KNOW she, the Host, is steaming right now. But warning the British? Seriously?

Revere isn't trying to alert the British, but he is trying to warn them. And in April of 1775, no one was talking about independence. We're still part of the British Empire. We're trying to save it. So this is a warning to the British Empire what will happen if you provoke Americans.
{Laughing} But she CAN'T let it go. Palin HAS to be wrong here.

BLOCK: So you think basically, on the whole, Sarah Palin got her history right.

Prof. ALLISON: Well, yeah, she did. And remember, she is a politician. She's not an historian. And God help us when historians start acting like politicians, and I suppose when politicians start writing history.

BLOCK: Are there other historians, Professor, whom you've talked with who say you're being entirely too charitable towards Sarah Palin here, and she really did misread American...
{Laughing, banging hand on Desk} So they go out, get this "Expert" to tell them how stupid Palin is, and he says uh, no. She got it right. Then they call their own Expert Stupid. {Laughing, wiping tear from eye} That IS the Looney Left for ya. Attack that of which the Fear, Palin, and even attack there own if their own does not agree with them.

Trust me folks, Palin is NOT Stupid. She IS great at making her Critics look Stupid though. Look, she is comfortable in her own Skin. She is who she is. She IS what she is. A Smart, Beautiful Independent Woman that has it all. A Husband that loves her. Great looking Kids. A BIGHT Future no matter WHAT she ultimately decides to do. She needs NO ONE. Nor NOTHING. She IS her own self with not only the ability to THINK, but to convey that thought to others.

Congratulations Sarah. Just keep being you. You ARE a breath of fresh air. The Media can not destroy you, because they did not make you. You will not go off into the never, like Cindy Sheehan. When Bush was in office, the Media MADE Cindy Sheehan. They paid her. Paid her travel. She is still out there, but now it's Obama. So NOW she is a kook that they OPENLY admit they wish would just go away. They can not do that to you Mrs. Palin. THAT is what is driving them nuts. Now they even go the Public to help them sort through your Emails looking for Dirt. My guess is they will not find anything. No Weiners here. {Smile} Like I said, just keep doing what you are doing. Just keep being YOU.
Peter
