For those who think Palinistas are cultists, here are 10 legitimate non-cultist reasons various Palinistas support her. It’s like going shopping for groceries. If one of these reasons is your cup of tea, you put it in the buggy, if not you walk by it. So be it.

1) As TTC said it a few hours ago, she is the only GOP presidential contender who can beat Obama. Betting on or backing a winning horse does NOT make you a cultist.

* All the polls say she couldn’t come close to beating Obama. Palin’s cultists simply ignore the odds.

2) Because they know her (refers mainly to folks who reside in Alaska). Just because I talk to or intermingle with my neighbor socially or know of her doesn’t mean I am a cultist. That’s called guilt by association. And that’s un-American.

* The majority of Alaskans who “know” her have only contempt for her. Palin’s cultists ignore her sky-high disapproval rating in Alaska.

3) You like the way she performs on the political stage. Just because you appreciate the finer distinctions of her political abilities and prowess doesn’t make you a cultist. What it makes you is a connoisseur.

* Shrill word salad, pornstar platform shoes, and predictable re-hashed talking points aren’t material for connoisseurs; they’re material for Palin’s cultists.

4) Because you are a conservative and Palin is a conservative. Conservatism is an ideology and personal choice and not a passport to coercive brainwashing or mind control.

Invalid argument.

5) Because she stands up to Obama and his radical agenda and is his #1 nemesis. Linked to #1 it goes beyond that in suggesting the Palinista who supports Palin for this reason is politically astute and understands the concept of political matchups.

* Obama ignores her. Only Palin’s cultists would believe they’re politically astute.

6) Because she is young and in her political prime. Sporting aficionados love watching sports’ superstars in the their prime. Was a golf fan a cultist for loving to watch Tiger Woods play golf in his prime? I think not. What they realize though, one is not young forever. Enjoy it while it is here. The time to support Palin is now!

* She’s middle-aged, nipped and tucked mutton dressed up as lamb, and she quit her elected position. Only Palin’s cultists view being “driven from office” as a strength.

7) Palinistas love or respect Palin’s brilliance and intelligence and past accomplishments. When did one ‘s recognition of someone’s success make one a cultist? When a soldier wins the Congressional medal of honor, is the President a cultist for presenting it to him? Palinistas consider it a resume-enhancer, nothing more and nothing less.

* No evidence offered of brilliance nor intelligence. Past accomplishments confined to raising taxes and failed, unbuilt, unwanted pipeline-to-nowhere. Only Palin’s cultists believe those are ‘resume-enhancers’.

8} After seeing The Undefeated. So one sees the light and has a personal revelation to support Sarah Palin after seeing the movie and became spellbound akin to a religious conversion. And later one joins O4P. Does becoming a Palinista under these circumstances make one a cultist? No. Because no one was forcing you to like the movie or unduly influencing you to become a Palinista.

* Spellbound? Religious conversion? Palin’s cultists regularly worship her in exactly those terms.

9) I want my children to have a better life; with Obama and the Leftists at the helm of the ship of state, I am losing hope for them. Sarah Palin will provide them that hope for a better life. So a father or mother wants a better life for their children. For them Palin is a means to an end. Choosing to back a political candidate for that reason does not make one a cultist.

* Under Palin’s failed administration Alaska had the highest school drop-out rate in the country; Palin most certainly did NOT “provide them that hope for a better life”. Palin’s cultists ignore unsavory facts (and Punchumgum doubts the existence of children of lonely old racist white guy technopeasant).

10) Sarah Palin is a devout Christian. 95% of Blacks voted for Obama in 2008. Are they cultists because they identify with Obama’s skin color or had a desire to see the first Black president in office? No. The key word is “identify”. Just because a Christian embraces Sarah Palin at the ballot box does not mean that person sees her as a cult leader. Rather Palin represents an affirmation of their values and that these values will be well represented in the White House.

* Sarah Palin has not attended a church service in years – and admits it. She is devoutly anti-church attendance. Palin’s cultists are disconnected from that nasty little reality (and technopeasant misuses the word “Christian” when referring to his Christianist values).

WHO identifies with Obama's color?
