SARAH PALIN BOOK SIGNING - Interviews with Supporters
Source: New Left Media

On November 20, 2009, Sarah Palin visited Columbus, OH as part of her book signing tour for "Going Rogue." When her supporters were asked broad questions about why they why they thought she should be president, the responses were vague: She's "real." She'll "stick up for America."

It has been said comments that you would find similarly talking point-driven, substance-less supporters at an Obama rally, and we agree. But no politician has emerged on the national stage as undefined and unqualified as Sarah Palin, and her public persona--which is anti-intellectual by definition--discourages substance. Instead, we get winking. One could hardly imagine her giving a complex speech about race in America, or speaking eloquently about our country's relations with Islam. Not just because she couldn't write such a speech (Obama has speech-writers, of course) but because she wouldn't--such necessarily academic discussion is antithetical to the persona she's created for herself and that her supporters have come to love.

This NEW LEFT MEDIA film was produced and edited by Chase Whiteside (interviews) and Erick Stoll (camera).

3. Her supports know very little about her, but they want less govt. What does
that mean? Too much spending. It looks good on paper? Wait to they realize that Sarah spent thousands for her children's travel using tax. Boy Sarah don't compromise and pay that back. These people are stuck in an old economy and an old mind set.

There may be some brain stem cells present.
