As opponents of Palin are trying to figure out how to “counter” her growing popularity and the momentum she has given the McCain campaign; I was reading where someone suggested “Swiftboating” her.
(Without going into a lot of details, this refers to getting together people who actually know, worked with and/or socialized with someone to counter their arguments, and most importantly, their image. It comes from the “Swift Boat Veterans for Truth”, (SBVT), and that group’s widely publicized campaign against 2004 Presidential candidate John Kerry).
It won’t work.
Kerry simply didn’t have a large number of Americans who sincerely loved him and identified with him (like is becoming very clear with Palin as she is on the stump).
Someone said attacking Palin for many voters is like attacking a single Mom holding down a Wal-Mart and a Housecleaning job to make ends meet; while caring for five kids (one with special needs); because her cloths are worn and her hair is messy.
The attack will come back to the attacker 100-fold.
Is Palin this protected and “bullet-proof”?
CAN she be “Swiftboated”?
Is Palin BORG?
