Jedediah Bila finds herself at an Upper East Side cocktail party, rubbing elbows with the liberals that inhabit Manhattan. As she writes, this happened on the same day it was announced Sarah Palin was headed to Iowa in September for the Restoring America rally.
This is fascinating stuff:
Last week I attended a cocktail party on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. It’s an unfortunate part of life every now and then for this prefer-a-basketball-game-and-soft-pretzel New Yorker. With that being said, any opportunity to mingle with members of New York City’s left-wing elite serves to provide both a wealth of amusement and—quite often—column-worthy entertainment.
This particular party happened to occur the same day it was revealed that Sarah Palin will be keynoting a tea party rally in Iowa on September 3. So, Palin came up quite a bit. What did some of Manhattan’s finest lefties have to say about her?
Here are the top five sentiments that were expressed throughout the two hours I lasted (special thanks to the veggies and dip for keeping me there long enough to overhear this fun):
5. SHE’S SCARY BECAUSE SHE’LL ACTUALLY DO WHAT SHE SAYS. That’s right, folks. They know she’s the real deal. They know that if she says it, she means it. And that scares the living daylights out of them.
4. SHE’S WAY TOO LIKABLE. They admittedly fell in love with Barack Obama’s charisma, and they know darn well that the only person in the GOP field who can match that—or, dare I say, surpass it—is Palin. P.S.—When someone brought up Mitt Romney, many found that awfully funny.
3. SHE’S NOT AFRAID TO SPEAK HER MIND. Palin’s fearlessness is what unnerves them the most. This group was all too excited for a "more subdued," "less nervy" 2012 Republican alternative.
2 SHE’S "ANNOYINGLY REGULAR" AND PEOPLE LOVE IT. The fact that Palin would never fit in at their cocktail parties is a plus, and they know it.
1. SHE CAN WIN. "What do you think would’ve happened if Palin had been calling the shots in 2008?" I asked. One poor gentleman looked like he’d seen a ghost. "I think we could very well have had a President Palin," he replied.

We all know the left-wing talking points about Sarah, and we also know the left will show who you who they really fear, by who they attack and who they let slide. You notice there is no "Stop Mitt Romney [or Michele Bachmann] or we'll all die!" campaign out there.
The attacks on Sarah Palin have been the worst in modern political history. The fear of a President Palin, and the prospect of losing power forever, drives the Ruling Class [in both parties] insane.
The establishment knows Sarah Palin's real record as the Chief Executive in Alaska. They know she is capable of rallying the entire nation to fundamentally restore our government to a Constitutional Republic.
They know how she has fought corruption at every level, and how she got the run-away Alaska government under control in short order. They know she accomplished more in her three years as Governor than most will in a lifetime, and they know those are positive accomplishments.
The liberals at Jedediah's party just showed their hand. Now it's up to us to make their worst fears come true, and elect Sarah Palin in 2012!
