What does Palin's 'Mama Grizzlies' video mean?

Looks like Sarah is on the campaign trail again, and is still using undefined terms, vague platitudes, and fear talk about unidentified threats to our grand American way of life.

:yawn:

This year will be remembered as the year when common-sense conservative women get things done for our country. All across this country, women are standing up and speaking out for common-sense solutions.
What common-sense conservative women is she talking about? What "things" are they getting done (besides standing and talking)? Why will this year be remembered that way? Have conservative women never gotten things done before? Are men standing up and speaking out for common-sense solutions as well, or is it only women?

These policies coming out of D.C. right now, this fundamental transformation of America: A lot of women who are very concerned about their kids' futures say, 'We don't like this fundamental transformation, and we're going to do something about it.' It seems like it's kind of a mom awakening in the last year and a half, where women are rising up and saying, 'no, we've had enough already.' Because moms kinda just know when something's wrong.
What fundamental transformation is she referring to? Have we gone anarchist? Buddhist? Reverted to agrarianism? Banned clothing? What? Do dads also kinda just know when something is wrong, or is this sense restricted solely to women? How about people who don't have kids?

Here in Alaska, I always think of the mama grizzly bears that rise up on their hind legs when somebody's coming to attack their cubs, to do something adverse toward their cubs.
Grizzlies stand on their hind legs to get a better look around, not to defend cubs/attack.

You thought pit bulls were tough, well you don't wanna mess with the mama grizzlies ...
So far, she sees herself as a barracuda, a pit bull, and now a grizzly. All dangerous, aggressive, and extremely untrustworthy creatures. Quite a little zoo she's building, there.

Look out, Washington, because there's a whole stampede of pink elephants crossin' the line and the ETA -- stampeding through -- is November 2nd, 2010. Lotta women, comin' together."
I guess we can add stampeding elephant to Sarah's zoo. (Although, pink elephants could simply be a reference to alcoholic hallucinations. Can't really tell.)


Ok, so I get it that this woman is running for office again, and her ad is very nicely produced, but what exactly is she saying? What issues is she taking a position on? Where's the beef? And why is everyone in the ad WHITE?

It seems to me that Sarah is putting other Republicans on notice; she thinks she and her tea party friends are going to take over. I just don't see any of that happening this year, or two years down the line (or ever). Although, should she somehow be elected, we'll have definitive proof that the Mayan 2012 "end of the world as we know it" prediction was right. :mrgreen:

Palin isn't running for office, she's a fundraiser/vote-whipper.

But you're right that she doesn't really say anything of substance. She never does.

Which fact makes your and others continual sniping at her and her remarks all the more pointless.

If she comes out and says nothing of substance and ignorant people eat it up, why shouldn't people snipe at her. Sniping at her is a public service.

And it makes Palin all the more interesting to people. They then want to see more of her to try and figure out why she is hated so much. When they can't figure it out, they probably turn into fans of hers.

This is probably true. I've decided to call it "Cancerous Idiocy". It's the sort of idiocy that works its way around all the sensible barriers put up in its path, and grows despite people's best efforts.

The video means, strong, conservative women are here to save the country for their children. Look out progressive salmon, the grizzlies are hungry.

And if you go to SarahPac.com - it's just hitting you up for money . . . no information or details on anything other than that.

So, yeah, she's just a campaign driver - not really getting people to change their minds on ideology.

I think it may be just a continual reminder to ourselves and everyone else that before we collectively woke up and decided to look past skin color, we very, very nearly put this dangerously deluded moron into a position to assume the most powerful role in the world.
As second-in-line to a sick, elderly president, she could very well have been President of the United States before 2012, if America hadn't said, "Enough. Yeah, many of us may not be 'ready' for a black president, but we haven't been left with any reasonable alternative; let's do this thang."

what about the strong conservative women that don't have any children, what are they saving the country for? for the grizzly bear cubs perhaps?
