How to get over the GOP’s obsession with Sarah Palin’s hair
The House Freedom Caucus, the GOP establishment’s primary faction, is aghast at the fact that Sarah Palin has become a national celebrity.
They’ve been making this case for months: The former Alaska governor’s hair is a symbol of her conservative bona fides and a powerful symbol of the Republican Party’s conservative identity.
But for those who aren’t familiar with Palin’s political history, she has spent decades pushing the idea that she’s a liberal, a social conservative, and a womanizer.
She’s even become a symbol for conservatives in the media, who, in a series of attacks on her, claim that she “panders to the worst impulses of misogynists” and that her hair is “the most unattractive thing about her.”
As far as Palin is concerned, these criticisms are just an attempt to shut down her speech, and she doesn’t care what conservatives think about it.
“It’s just a smear campaign,” she told MSNBC’s Chris Hayes last week.
Palin has made it clear that she doesn’t have any intention of backing down.
She insists that she and her supporters will continue to speak out against any attempts to discredit her and her conservative beliefs, and that she will continue pushing for women to have the right to vote, despite the attacks on their right to choose.
“If you have to choose between a woman and a man, I can’t choose between the two,” she said in an interview with CBS this past August.
But if that’s the case, then why has Palin become so popular with Republicans?
Why have her fans embraced her as an icon?
I asked several leading GOP figures, who all spoke on the condition of anonymity, for their take on why they love her.
Sarah Palin: the conservative icon Republican strategist Sarah Lacy-Jones told me that the Palin era has been a boon to conservatives because she’s been able to bring them together and forge a united front against the growing number of political outsiders, particularly the Democrats.
Sarah Lacey-Jones, a former Republican National Committee communications director, said that Palin’s popularity with the party’s rank and file has been “the best part of the job.”
“It was her personality, her presence, and her energy,” Lacy Jones said.
“I think people are now looking at Sarah Palin as a credible voice for their party, and they’re willing to take a stand.
She can bring a sense of realism to the party.
And that’s a very important thing, because she was very pragmatic in her politics.
Sarah Huckabee Sanders, a 2016 GOP vice presidential nominee, said Palin is “a voice that’s heard on a lot of these issues. “
There was a real sense of unity,” she added.
Sarah Huckabee Sanders, a 2016 GOP vice presidential nominee, said Palin is “a voice that’s heard on a lot of these issues.
I think she’s the voice of the people.”
She explained that, in her time as a congressman, she was able “to do a lot with the GOP to help people and get things done.”
But, she added, “She was a voice of people who had a very conservative vision of the country and were very, very passionate about that.
People respect her as a person. “
She has a very strong personality.
People respect her as a person.
And, I think that people appreciate that she has a real vision for what they want to see.”
So why is it that so many conservatives love her?
Lacey Jones said that the primary reason Palin’s fans love her is that she is “unique.”
“Her voice, her personality and her voice is very, just very different,” she explained.
“The people who really have been a part of her life are her husband, and all the people who have known her are her family.”
Palin’s former husband, Rick Santorum, who was elected governor of Pennsylvania in 2010, called her “one of the most accomplished, most influential and most courageous public servants in American history.”
She is also the first woman to hold the position of governor of the United States.
Palin is the daughter of two immigrants from Ireland, and is also of Irish descent.
But her parents were not only successful businessmen; they were also deeply religious.
“They were very conservative.
They were extremely Christian,” Lacey said.
The conservative Christian roots of Sarah Palin have also been evident in her support of abortion rights.
In 2014, as part of a push to defund Planned Parenthood, Palin called the organization a “cancerous, destructive and deadly entity” that should be “immediately defunded.”
As governor, Palin signed a law that made it illegal for public universities to discriminate against students based on their religious affiliation, and in the years since, she’s gone on record saying that she believes that “people of all faiths are equal under the law.”
Palin is also a vocal supporter of the Second Amendment, and on a recent radio show, she said that she supports the right of people to own guns “to protect themselves from tyranny.”
Lacey argued that Palin is a “great role
