Video: The obligatory “Rockwell moment from Palin’s speech” clip

posted at 10:40 am on September 4, 2008 by Allahpundit

By popular request. The questions emerging at this hour: Given that she’s appearing at a political event, isn’t it only fair to let the media tear Piper Palin to pieces? And more importantly, could Piper be the secret mother of baby Trig? Stay tuned to the Daily Dish for more on these developing issues.

Absolutely adorable!

My 14 yr old daughter and I saw that last night all she could saw was, Awwwww!.

Such an adorable child, and a beautiful baby.

Piper is a cutie pie. My wife and I get a real kick out of her antics at these events. She’s hilarious!

Woody on September 4, 2008 at 1:56 PM

Hasn’t it always been the job of the dinosaur media to vilify, defame and punish anyone who has too many attractive children? It has gotten so it’s one of the few things they have much competence at.

Piper really is something! Not afraid one bit of the cameras or crowd!

Since Trig wasn’t your typical fussy crying baby either in the audience or on-stage, he was drugged.

LOL! Read it in their comment section under this exact YouTube. Arianna Huffington must be out of her mind to put cute Republican kids on her site.

I was wondering when someone on the demented left would say this about baby Trig.

4shoes on September 4, 2008 at 2:00 PM

I was driving my husband crazy during the speech because I couln’t stop shouting how much I LOVED that child!! I didn’t even see the hair licking until recaps this morning! All I could think of was- I HAVE TO SEE THIS CHILD, AND ALL THESE OTHER BEAUTIFUL CHILDREN GROW UP IN OUR WHITEHOUSE! I HAVE TO! –(oops, sorry about the caps- it was a typo, but I’m keeping it) What a genuine, beautiful, family!

I just dotes on that there kid. She embodies the America I grew up in. Sorta reminds me of Scout from To Kill A Mockingbird.

Coronagold on September 4, 2008 at 2:10 PM

Right…sorry Chuck, I think Grue is right.

I’m just a little jumpy this morning, just back from the KOS and HufPo sites and I feel so dirty you know.

Over.

Sorry… yes I was kidding. I thought it was so over the top I didnt need the /sarc

Stop reading that crap, you’ll live longer!

So when are we going to see Piper Palin/Barack Obama lineups at Rasmussen?

Ha…you’re probably right about that, but it’s the old warrior in me.

“Know your Foe”, it makes your stronger.

Over.

Piper was absolutely adorable! What a cute, confident kid! And to sit there so well-behaved through all of the speechifying, very nice! I’m not sure my kids would have been that good!

I liked Megan McCain’s pictures and video of her on her blog too. She reminds me of Shirley Temple.

And little Trig is adorable too. The late hour was probably to their advantage. For babies, when it’s bedtime, it’s bedtime. My kids could sleep through anything. And I loved how they all kept passing him around, including Cindy McCain. Quite the picture of a real, loving American family.

Common Sense on September 4, 2008 at 2:49 PM

We have a four-month old little girl and we loved seeing Trig. We know how much we love our baby and it’s exactly how that family feels about their baby boy.

That anyone could think of a baby as “punishment” or as a “mistake”, or as something that can be discarded in a utility closet, like Barack Obama does . . .

I really can’t imagine how that man’s mind works. There is obviously something wrong with Obama’s brain.

NoDonkey on September 4, 2008 at 3:11 PM

I maintain that my nieces and nephew are the cutest kids ever, but that was pretty damn cute!

No worries :) And thanks. :D

Now that you put it that way, yeah I can see it. I loved that book, too.

*eats*

Grue in the Attic on September 4, 2008 at 3:17 PM

Not as cute as my own kids (I’ll admit my bias), but I was just eating that little girl up last night. And Trig is beautiful too. Hell, the whole family is good-looking.

Her eagerness while waving on stage made my heart warm. I’ll bet she’s a fierce little bugger when she’s upset too.

Anna on September 4, 2008 at 3:34 PM

Liberals can’t for the life of them imagine how a mother of five can possibly do anything worthwile with her life – especially if she doesn’t have a full-time staff of illegal immigrants, or full-time government-sponsored daycare.

That’s because these freaks don’t even understand the concept of a man and a woman raising a child together – let alone an entire FAMILY working to take care of each other.

The liberals were utterly flabbergasted to see not just Sarah, but her whole family, up on that stage happily ignoring the most vile stream of propoganda ever leveled at any Americans.

Those sad, pathetic creatures who call themselves “progressives” have absolutely no idea how someone can survive without the media’s virtual substitute for love.

As Ann Coulter is fond of saying: “Have these liberals ever even MET a normal person?”

The liberals will never understand, but every real person in the country saw the truth that night. We saw why the Palins are not just strong, but invulnerable…

It’s because they have each other.

And I loved how they all kept passing him around, including Cindy McCain. Quite the picture of a real, loving American family.

Just how classy is Cindy McCain? Every time they showed her during Palin’s speech, she looked like she was going to burst with pride, and a couple of times she looked like she was going to tear up. She could easily be jealous and catty toward Palin; instead, it’s like they’re all family.

Compare that to Michelle “this doesn’t help my kids” Obama.

Jezla on September 4, 2008 at 4:11 PM

I would have sat through a night of boring speeches just to see that. (Fortunately I didn’t have to)
Cute-cute!

Lucy Pevensie from the land of “Spare Oom?”

Very cute.

Black Adam on September 4, 2008 at 4:57 PM

I saw this in real time last night too. Seems Trig won’t need a big brother to look after him like I had. Ha ha the old spidoo, I was wearing a spidoo in my fourth grade class pic. Just a little to paste down an unrully cowlick.

sonnyspats1 on September 4, 2008 at 5:12 PM

I’ve seen pics of Piper doing funny faces, she’s just adorable.

ebrawer on September 4, 2008 at 6:13 PM

This was a moment that made my stomack turn for the obvious reasons as well as I don’t think a seven year-old should be holding an infant in such a situation. But I knew Hot Air would eat it up.

Aslans Girl on September 4, 2008 at 6:56 PM

Was that shown on the screen to the audience, or just to the TV audience. I didn’t notice it at the time, but now to me it sounds like the audience laughed. I had assumed just the TV viewers saw it.

tikvah on September 4, 2008 at 7:01 PM

There is no doubt where Piper gets it from, no?

It’s not as if she was walking around with him.

Nurturing starts at a very young age. We know this. Seems the Liberals/Left think that nurturing is best left to nanny’s.

Asians Girl, exactly how many children have you raised from infancy?

coldwarrior on September 4, 2008 at 7:31 PM

Coronagold on September 4, 2008 at 2:10 PM

You nailed it, I have been thinking there is something about that lil girl that seems familiar and I think you called it perfectly.
