Here Comes The Barracuda!

Published by at 7:18 pm under All General Discussions

Think the rock band Heart: “Barra, Barracuda!”

If the real thing dont do the trick
No, you better make up something quick
You gonna burn burn burn burn it to the wick
Ooooooohhhh, barra barracuda.

Fox just released one of the quotes from Palin’s speech and it is clear The Barracuda is coming out tonight.

Update: Here is the actual quote:

“I had the privilege of living most of my life in a small town. I was just your average hockey mom, and signed up for the PTA because I wanted to make my kids’ public education better. When I ran for city council, I didn’t need focus groups and voter profiles because I knew those voters, and knew their families, too. Before I became governor of the great state of Alaska, I was mayor of my hometown. And since our opponents in this presidential election seem to look down on that experience, let me explain to them what the job involves. I guess a small-town mayor is sort of like a ‘community organizer,’ except that you have actual responsibilities.” 


“I’m not a member of the permanent political establishment. And I’ve learned quickly, these past few days, that if you’re not a member in good standing of the Washington elite, then some in the media consider a candidate unqualified for that reason alone. But here’s a little news flash for all those reporters and commentators: I’m not going to Washington to seek their good opinion – I’m going to Washington to serve the people of this country.” 

– end update

I don’t have the exact quote, but here it is paraphrased for now.

“I joined the PTA to help my kids education. … I was mayor of my home town, but I did need polls or focus groups to make decisions, I knew the people. I guess you could say it was like being a community organizer, except you had to take responsibility for real decisions”.

If this is a taste of what’s to come tonight, then Palin “The Barracuda” is going to land some serious blows on Obidenama and the media. As Rudy Guiliani noted today, if the Presidential candidate is locked in battle with the opposing VP candidate, that is a clear sign that the Presidential candidate is sinking in quicksand.

Barra, Barracuda!

    I think it’s going to be a good speech. Drudge is parts of it.

    People in MSM are wondering her thoughts on foreign policy. I guess you would think her thoughts are the same as McCain, as she is running for VP. I wonder has anybody asked Biden what his views on Foreign policy are. We know they are very different then Obama’s. I have to wonder who will be leading it? Is it really smart to choose a VP who voted for the war and against the surge. Obama and the media haven’t talked much about it.

    Barack Obama was born on 8/4/61.
    That means his mother, Ann Dunham, got pregnant on or around 11/4/60.

    Ann Dunham was born on 11/29/42.
    She turned 18 on 11/29/60.

    This means that Obama’s mother was 17 when she got pregnant!!!

    The Barracuda is going to feed…

    The media thinks they are needed by McCain/Palin to get their message out.

    The media doesn’t know just how delectable they will be…

    They are wiggling in the water…

    Uuuuummmm, Tasty!!!

    Chris Mathews got it. He felt it. You could see it in him.

    Kieth Oberman, The Idiot, doesn’t.
    Palin’s husband will ride his a$$ in the next Idiotarod.

  7. WWS says:

    ugh, you actually look at msnbc?

    But this was awesome. Love to know what the viewership numbers for that speech were. Of course it will be on youtube.

    Sarah was awesome! Obviously the best pick McCain could have made.

    Someone has to keep tabs on the fools. Otherwise, they will be on welfare and everybody will have to dig into their pockets to provide them with arugula salads!

    P.S. Wolfson is gushing over her. Clinton’s communications advisor is absolutely gushing over her.

  9. Boghie says:

    The Idiot (Oberman) gets it now.

    Biden is toast.

    His legalistic arguments will be destroyed. The culture and the world has changed. Biden is circa ’72 baby.

    But, Kieth…

    Biden is Biden. He is an old codger who believes in the values of the past saeculum. He is an Artist. He will loose in a knife fight with a GenXer.

    Sarah was great – she put a knife in Obama’s back …she sliced and diced – but she did it with a smile on her face.

    As a woman and a former soccer Mom myself I was proud…very proud!!!

  11. Redteam says:

    Just watched Giuliani and Palin speeches and to quote that illustrious commentator peggy Noonan. It’s over. For obama that is. the far lefties were expecting her to drop out, boy were they surprised.

  12. Toes192 says:

    Aj… You are sooo wrong on this one… Our Sarah showed her Miss Congeniality side tonight… Sarah the Barracuda will be making an appearance on Oct. 2 when she debates Slow Joe.

    Jim lehrer of PBS is moderating… I hope he doesn’t get hurt.

  13. browngreengold says:

    I predict fires of fury and desperation today from the fever swamps after last night’s butt stompin.’

    I stepped outside after Sarah finished speaking and all over town you could the heads asplodin.

  14. Terrye says:

    I watched Governor Palin’s speech and I think it was one of the best I have ever heard. And the best the critics can come up with it, she did not write it. My God, how stupid is that? Do they think the Messiah does not have a speech writer?


    Sarah was Wonderful.

  15. lurker9876 says:

    Not only did I hear about the comments that Sarah did not write this speech, I am hearing comments that Obama writes all of his speeches.

    Good grief. People actually believe all that crap and lies the media spews about her and to read that the viewers still believe them.

    One ridiculous thing that I heard tonight was that her church had a video of her preacher, showing how almost bad her preacher is compared to Wright. Then the video was yanked off the air.

    The media and liberals are going to go after her fundamental background as if there is no grey between black and white.
