Here is Sarah Palin’s speech last week at the National Quartet Convention in Louisville.

Beyond being an outstanding public speaker, the reasons Sarah Palin poses such a threat to the left and the elitists are her authenticity and her clarity of expression on religion, morality and political philosophy. It is almost an hour time commitment to watch the entire appearance but it is worth it if you want to understand her current appeal.

Sarah is Everywoman. She can talk about her faith without a hint of contrivance, and she tells the stories of the remarkable events in her life in terms that resonate with all of us. The real Sarah Palin is very hard not to like. That is why they are so afraid of her.
