There are many of us that voted for John McCain soley because Governor Sarah Palin was on the ticket, and we do not like the way she was treated by the press, the talking heads, and some talk show hosts. Therefore we are going to say a special ‘Thank you’ through a special TV ad. Below is the press release from Our Country Deserves Better.
STATEMENT ON THANKSGIVING
AD CAMPAIGN HONORING
GOV. SARAH PALIN
SACRAMENTO — The New York Times has reported on their Caucus Blog about an upcoming television ad campaign thanking and defending the honor and character of Governor Sarah Palin. The pro-Palin television ad campaign will air nationwide around the Thanksgiving Day holiday. (See the New York Times report here.)
The pro-Palin ad campaign is a project of the Our Country Deserves Better Committee which raised approximately $1.3 million during the general election to support the McCain/Palin ticket and oppose the Obama/Biden ticket.
The Our Country Deserves Better Committee will be filming the ad next Monday and had not planned to announce the new ad campaign until around the time of the film shoot or post-production of the ad. However, a reporter for the New York Times is on the committee’s email list, and when she contacted the organization, we decided to cooperate with the Times.
The ad is being produced specifically to honor, thank and defend Gov. Sarah Palin in the wake of several unfavorable media reports which included criticism from anonymous sources.
The members and supporters of the Our Country Deserves Better Committee have been impressed with Gov. Palin’s honor, candor and dignity during the recent presidential campaign. We applaud the way in which she has generally articulated her conservative viewpoints with an optimistic and hopeful style similar to President Ronald Reagan.
Further news releases and information about the upcoming ad campaign honoring Gov. Sarah Palin will follow in the days to come.
This is in appreciation for all she has endured and because we truly care about her. We want to thank her for everything and encourage her to stay fighting. I’m sure she doesn’t need us to tell her to keep up the good fight, but sometimes it’s nice to hear from someone other than yourself. I want her to run for President in the year 2012!
Sidenote: While I am a member of their mailing list, I did not post all of their ads here because I thought they should have been more on point as to what our message is, rather than to just attack Obama. It makes us look petty and takes away from the message.
After all, we did have a message. Ask anyone what it was, and they cannot tell you. I understand this is McCain’s fault, but we should be more pro-active than negative. Yes, tell the truth that the media does not want to cover. Certainly. But don’t forget why.
May you walk with the LORD always, and when you cannot take another step, may He carry you the rest of the way until you can walk along side Him again.
