Palin. Breitbart. Nightstick. Boom.

Sarah Palin took to the electronic pages of, both to pay tribute to the late Andrew Breitbart and to support Breitbart’s last mission: to “vet the Prez.” In it, she not only praises her friend, but also lambastes the corrupt media he so despised for doing anything but vetting Obama. It’s Palin at her best:

Barack Obama and I both served in political office in states with a serious corruption problem. Though there is a big difference between serving as the CEO of a city, then a state, and regulating domestic energy resources, and being a liberal Community Organizer, bear with me on the comparison. The difference between my record and Barack Obama’s is that I fought the corrupt political machine my entire career (and I have twenty years of scars to prove it) on the local, state, and national level. But Obama didn’t fight the corruption he encountered. He went along with it to advance his career. Graft, cronyism, and quid pro quo are the methods of the Chicago political machine from which he emerged.

You would think the media – those watchdogs of the public trust – would be interested in this. But they refused to vet Barack Obama. With tingles up their legs, they shielded him.

If the media had done their job of vetting him, we wouldn’t have been shocked that within days after Obama’s election, his close political associate Rod Blagojevich was caught trying to sell Obama’s vacant Senate seat.

If the media had done their job of vetting him, we wouldn’t be astonished to see all the billion dollar green energy kickbacks going to his campaign cronies as the nation heads towards bankruptcy.

If the media had done their job of vetting him, we wouldn’t be surprised that Obama brought these same Chicago “pay-to-play” practices to the White House.

This corruption was entirely predictable. But the mainstream media, who work under our Constitutional right of freedom of the press which our sons and daughters fight in war zones today to protect, dropped the ball and failed America by refusing to vet their chosen candidate.

So, as Breitbart declared in his last CPAC speech, we – the everyday patriotic citizens of the United States – will do the vetting the media refused to do.

Be sure to read the whole thing.

    Great speech by a great woman about a great man.

    Once Duh-1 is vetted, then what? Does anyone expect anyone in the LSM to shout from the rooftops about associations? Or kickbacks? Or attempted-murderers as business/political/education allies? Or apparently sleeping through twenty straight years of “God damn America!” sermons? (Heck, even grandpa woke up occasionally!) Or years of “Open your hearts and minds to this man”?

    They’ve already had years to correct their incredible lack of vetting, and I can pretty well guarantee ya it ain’t gonna change now – they have way too much of their souls invested in boogerman to change now.

    Besides, when he declares martial law, they want to be in line for the plum reporting jobs – you know, the jobs where all dissidents are reported so they can be shipped off to re-education camps.

    Carlos, your words ring true. You and I and people like us across this great land look at what is happening and we are just amazed. Most of the time, I look at what I see happening and I simply can’t believe it. Nonetheless, there it is. It is indeed happening. At the hands of fellow Americans, we are fast becoming a Communist nation. I would like to think there is still time to stem the tide and turn things around. That’s what I would like to think.
    What I observe around me tells me otherwise. This country has never been in so much trouble as it is right now. God help us.

  4. Carlos says:

    Yes it has, Mitch, but what comes to mind is the War of 1812, when men were willing to defend this nation, what it was and what they knew to be true.

    Now, not so much, especially with both the jackasses and elephants trying as hard as they can to buy votes with our money, those of us willing to work for it and pay taxes.

    People like Dear Leader see taxes as THEIR money, forgetting that it is OUR money, and they were elected to protect that with which they were entrusted.

    It’s amazing how much easier it is to spend someone else’ money when one knows there won’t be any thoughts of theft levied against them.

    This is the same media that, on the eve of invading Iraq, was more concerned with the salacious details of the Kobe Bryant sex scandal.

  6. Mitch says:

    It is amazing Carlos, that the future of our country has come down to money. Just money. It’s not a Democratic disease, nor a Republican disease. It’s just a disease that is upon us. Upon the American people. Can you imagine even for a moment, Jefferson or Hamilton or Adams, spending several million dollars to get elected President? For what purpose? Any intelligent person has to believe there is something else on the other end of that equation. Our Founders believed the right men would come forward to lead their country when their service was needed. After doing so, they were expected to return to their private affairs. Little did they know what was to come. In that same line of thought, they believed the Supreme Court, the Judicial in our triumvirate form of Government would watch over us and protect our belief in our Constitution. Something we believed to be Sacrosanct. Little did we know that the Judicial would eventually be absorbed by the Executive, thereby eliminating the separation of powers the Founders tried to install to protect us. Where we go from here is anybody’s guess. My guess is, we are fast becoming a Communist nation, if we haven’t already achieved that dubious distinction.

    Anyone who points this out to the rest of the community is of course, branded as a radical. You know, I used to resent that term. Lately, I am beginning to like it. If it means saving this country from the Communist Obama and his minions, I can get used to being called a, “radical.”
    I’ve been called worse.

  7. Mitch says:

    Drew, you make a good point. The leftist media is selective in what they promote. A good reason why I don’t watch television or read newspapers.

  8. Steph says:

    All of you are spot-on! I don’t watch TV news or read LSM newspapers. Even our weekly rag here in town is full of lies and distortions. We really need to start vetting right where we live, folks, then keep the pressure on all the way to the top. I fear for our nation if things don’t change soon in the right way – going back to the Constitution! What a radical concept, eh?
