Video: Chris Matthews And Left-Wing Panel Ridicule Sarah Palin’s Trip To Israel

A trip to India and Israel is a good first step  for a potential presidential candidate seeking acceptance on the world stage. Sarah Palin gave  a very well received speech in India, and met with the Prime Minister Of Israel. Her trip overseas went very smoothly, and bolstered her foreign policy credentials. The experience should be considered a net positive for her.

But no – the left won’t give Palin that. She can’t even take a trip Israel without them sniping at her, ridiculing her with anti-Christian slurs, and sounding like frantic poor-sports freaking out because a longtime Dem constituency seems to be turning away from them. Everything about her is “weird” and scoff-worthy.

David Corn snidely argues that Evangelicals only like Israel  because Armageddon is supposed to happen there – and… and –it’s not like they actually  like Jews or Israelis…

I’m almost sorry to lay this on you – it’s hard to listen to grown men sounding like this:

Transcript via Newsbusters:

CHRIS MATTHEWS, HOST: This coalition between the Right and Israel, the evangelical right in the United States, is not founded on personal friendships or anything like that, or even values. It’s founded on some sort of weird, rightwing thing where you just high five each other there at the Western Wall and then that’s done, they’re trip.

DAVID CORN, MOTHER JONES: But there is a theological component which Gene was referring to…

MATTHEWS: Explain.

CORN: …Which is there’s a certain brand of evangelical Christians who believe in Revelations, that Armageddon is coming, and that will happen in Israel basically.

MATTHEWS: If they hold the West Bank.

CORN: If they hold, well there’s a lot of different components to that, but that’s why they like Israel. That’s why they want Israel to be strong. It’s not because…

MATTHEWS: It’s not personal.

CORN: Right. It’s not because they like Jews or Israelis.

MATTHEWS: [Laughs]

What insufferable jack-a$$es.

  1. She can’t let go of the fact that someone like Obama beat her in 2008 and she’s trying to get revenge by beating him and making the world, who knows who she lost to, think that Obama is the worst president in history, just like “you know who” wants people to think Obama’s administra¬tion is the most corrupted in history.


  2. Take a big breath, Ms. Roofing, you’re going to pass out if you keep ranting like that. In fact, it appears that your brain already shut off.


  3. Sorry, Roofing. The evident positioning of Obama as “worst president in history” has not a thing to do with Palin. President Present put himself there all by his lonesome.


  4. This is just one more manifestation of fear — the Left’s fear of Sarah Palin. This is what they do to those they fear: attempt to force them out of the public eye with ridicule, slander, demonizations, and threats. And Mrs. Palin has been the target of all four.

    I wonder when they’ll change tracks and go to the “Times-McCain tactic:” praising some obvious RINO loser to the skies? That will probably start soon.


  5. The Left will always, always tell you who the most Conservative candidate is by who they fear. The more they persecute her the stronger she gets. Like Esther in the Purim story (and Jesus come to think of it) she truly is on a God-given mission to destroy the Islamic/Marxist axis of evil led by Imam O-bow-mao. The Leftist Israel govt should stop bowing to terrorists and learn from Gov. Palin that humility is overrated–Palin will never apologize for being American and Exceptional. Righteousness is strength.
