Republican vice-presidential nominee Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin waves to the crowd after presidential nominee Senator John McCain (R-AZ) delivered his concession speech at their election night rally in Phoenix, November 4, 2008.
They sure put Sarah through the ringer didn't they? Not content to report phony smears about her family or her children, or dig through her private email account the smear merchants are at it again. This time it's coming from unnamed sources in the McCain campaign (we have a pretty good idea who you are, even if you deny it) saying the most outrageous nonsense about Sarah. All of it easily disproved but the headline makes news and the correction gets little attention.
The truth is that Sarah Palin was the brightest star of the entire GOP presidential contest. Whether it was the electrifying speech she delivered at the GOP convention, her commanding debate performance against Joe "gaffe machine" Biden or the authentic American so many voters flocked to see in person it's no surprise that a Rasmussen survey this week showed that an overwhelming majority of Republicans were glad she was on the ticket and want to see more of her in the future.

Here's my contribution:
Dear Governor Palin:We will all miss Sarah, but it's a temporary parting to be sure. While it was a long campaign from beginning to end the last two months felt like a lifetime of their own. This nostalgic bittersweet classic sums up those weeks for me:
Greetings from South Carolina, home of the only GOP conservative presidential primary.
During the early primary process this year many of us weren't really all that excited about the candidates who were running. I can't tell you how many times I or one of my conservative friends expressed a desire to support a bright fresh face who was also an unwavering, unapologetic conservative. When you came onto the scene the connection for me was instant, authentic and lasting.
I'm sorry you were not able to visit South Carolina during the campaign for the general election, so on behalf of my conservative friends in the Palmetto State I want to extend to you know a heartfelt invitation to visit us at your earliest convenience.
When it is cold up in Alaska, you are guaranteed of a warm welcome and not so cold temperatures here on the beaches of Hilton Head Island and across the state.
I'm looking forward to your visit and hope it will be soon.
Hilton Head Island, SC
