Palin's Field of Dreams: Build it and They will Come

The 2010 midterm elections are not too far off and Palin's national stature has grown to just about one million dollars and is growing.

I previously posted the thread Palin's Forte for 2010: The Field of Dreams in Politics

In that thread I quoted the scene in the movie where Terrence Mann talks of a misplaced past. It is worth quoting again.

They'll pass over the money without even thinking about it: for it is money they have and peace they lack. And they'll walk out to the bleachers; sit in shirtsleeves on a perfect afternoon. They'll find they have reserved seats somewhere along one of the baselines, where they sat when they were children and cheered their heroes. And they'll watch the game and it'll be as if they dipped themselves in magic waters. The memories will be so thick they'll have to brush them away from their faces. People will come Ray. The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh... people will come Ray. People will most definitely come.

Sarah built SarahPac and those people who want to be reminded of what once was good in politics will "pass over the money without thinking about it: for it is money they have and peace they lack."

Sarah Palin will talk about the issue on her time and Palin's Op-ed in the Washington Post on cap and trade is just the begining.

It was during the Republican primaries in Alaska, in which I am reminded now, of the first time I saw Sarah Palin speak at the Anchorage Republican Women's luncheon and how she spoke of the conservative ideals found in the Republican platform.

I knew then, she would grow into following the ideals that she felt comfortable talking about. She is still growing into wearing and speaking of those ideals.

As I said before, the road that Sarah has traveled since her nomination for V.P. has been a road of potholes and ditches, but in the end the people will travel that road with her, knowing that in the end, they will find what was once good in politics.
