Palin: 'Keep the faith'

← return to Water Cooler

Among the many New Year’s Day messages comes this from Sarah Palin:

“Constitutional commonsense conservatives must stay engaged and hold our ‘leaders’ accountable to the voice of average everyday hard working Americans or we will very soon become an enslaved, bankrupt former nation of greatness,” she says. “So, please keep the faith heading into this new year.”

Though gleeful press reports continue to suggest her waning influence, Mrs. Palin, a former Alaska governor and the 2008 Republican vice presidential candidate, still came in fifth on Gallup’s recent list of “most admired” women, besting Queen Elizabeth II and Margaret Thatcher. Mrs. Palin also was included in Yahoo’s top-five political searches in the past 12 months.

“And for now, remember to be grateful for the blessings and opportunities God has given us as independent individuals, as caring members of families, as honorable businesses and communities, and as countrymen who understand this most exceptional nation’s foundations of strength,” Mrs. Palin says, adding: “May you resolve to stay engaged and optimistic. May you pick your battles wisely. And may you live life vibrantly.”
