Vanity Fair article on Sarah Palin - August 2009 issue
In light of my recent posts (on Palin and the George Tiller murder)...
This link is to an article which opens with Sarah Palin speaking at a anti-abortion banquet in Evansville, Indiana.
From the article:
"It is the story of a political novice with an intuitive feel for the temper of her times, a woman who saw her opportunities and coolly seized them. In every job, she surrounded herself with an insular coterie of trusted friends, took disagreements personally, discarded people who were no longer useful, and swiftly dealt vengeance on enemies, real or perceived."
An interesting thing the Vanity Fair article outlines is how many people were once enamoured of Palin, supported her advancement professionally, and then found themselves bitterly disillusioned.
Oh, the power of the Neptunian special Kool-Aid! It'll glaze your eyes over with adoration and oneness and glamour...until you realize that you've been hoodwinked. It sucks you in and gets you feeling the love and the promise and the "larger purpose." It gives you a sultry "we're all on the same team here" wink. This is how the fervour gets its legs.
And when you pass over the details of reality in favour of the promise being sold to you of what could be, it'll screw you.
I can see exactly how this could go on with Palin's Chiron in Pisces opposite Pluto-Uranus in Virgo/Neptune in Scorpio combo.
