Countdown to Truth – Sarah Proclaims Own Innocence! Real Report Due Out Tomorrow.

9 10 2008

More developments in the Troopergate story.

Palin has become very fond of the preemptive strike.  Once again, in a less than shocking pre-emptive power play, Governor Palin’s Personnel Board has concluded Palin’s investigation of herself.  That’s right, she decided to just jump right in there and investigate herself, because the bipartisan Legislative investigation just couldn’t be impartial.  Like her.

So, drumroll please……Palin has declared herself INNOCENT!  She’s done nothing wrong!  Boy that was a nail-biter. 

But now, we leave Sarah’s Fantasy Land and come back to reality.  After overcoming every hurdle, every stonewalling tactic and every flimsy legal challenge imaginable, the report is in the hands of Legislators.   Tomorrow, the Alaska Legislative Council will decide what to do with the results of the real investigation – the one that John McCain and Sarah Palin would rather you not see.  For weeks now, Special Investigator Stephen Branchflower has been investigating Palin’s firing of the Commissioner of Public Safety, Walt Monegan to see if she abused her power as governor to fire him because he, in turn, would not fire her ex-brother in law because of a family squabble.  Questions were also asked about the Palins’ role in what appears to be interference in a workers compensation claim filed by the ex-brother-in-law, Trooper Michael Wooten.

But before the report is released, the Legislative Council must vote to do so.  There is EXTREME pressure coming from very high in the Republican Party to keep this report from coming out.  If this report is released to the public tomorrow, it will be because of the principled bravery of a majority of members of the Legislative Council, particularly the Republicans who will have had to stand up to their own party.  And that’s where we stand.

Meanwhile, on a lighter note…

This brings us to our final installment of the Countdown to Truth, and the Top 10 Reasons the report should be released:

10: Maybe once the report comes out people will stop naming their pitbulls “Sarah” and making them wear lipstick.  Because that is just all kinds of wrong.

 

 

9: It will give Meg Stapleton the opportunity to stop lying about Walt Monegan and Troopergate, and to start lying about why Sarah Palin got her ass handed to her in the debate.

 

8: If it doesn’t come out then what will Alaska Progressive bloggers write about all weekend?

 

7: This investigation has cost Alaskans $100,000. The last time Alaskans spent that kind of money with nothing to show for it, was on exotic dancers and cocaine back in the oil drenched 1980’s.

 

6: Because the McCain campaign does not want the report to be made public, and when was the last time ANYBODY told Alaskans not to do something and we listened?

 

5: Once this report is finally out we can all stop pretending to like Dan Fagan.

 

4: The report will undoubtedly convince the Palins that they need to return home where surely they will be inspired to add yet another offspring to their brood, perhaps this one to be named “Phlegm Wingnut Palin”?

 

3: It will allow Alaskans to stop focusing on this distraction and get back to watching for Russians trying to come over the border so that we can shoo them back to where they belong.

 

2: Once it is released perhaps it can be given as reading material to poor little Bristol Palin who apparently is secreted, along with Cathy Baldwin-Johnson and hockey stud Levi Johnston, in a secret vault deep under the White House, or in a bear cache in the wilds of Wasilla, until her mother’s doomed run for Vice President comes to an end.

 

1: It will clear the name of Walt Monegan and make his mother, possibly the sweetest woman in Alaska , very happy.

 So this is the last day to send your emails urging that the report be released.  The Legislative Council will meet tomorrow at 9:00am Alaska time (1:00pm EST, 10:00am PST).  At this point it really could go either way.  Great forces are at work here, and we’ll have to just wait and see.  Thanks to all who have been helping from near and far.

Email addresses are in the comments.

Am I the only person who thinks that it was just plain stupid to proclaim your innocence BEFORE the report was issued, that the issuing of the report then becomes a moot point. Why would they not release the report if it’s already been declared by some other investigators (and yes, I use that term loosely) that she’s innocent?

And does that not give the media yet another thing to jump all over her about? Could there possibly be anything more ridiculous?

It really does make both of the Failens look silly to jump into the fire before she even sees what the Legislature is going to do. She must know something we don’t and be really afraid of what is going to come out that she does not want to have exposed. Why else would she not let her Repub friends just stall on releasing the report tomorrow, and for the rest of the month.

My money is on the tampering with the workmen’s comp files. That’s a pretty big no-no and gets lots of “I’m to big for my britches” so “I have the right to see anything in anyones file” into deep do-do. Those wonderful American workers she’ssuppose to be so concerned about are not going to be happy knowing she has been snooping in private medical records. Also the states contract with the Workmen’s Comp insurance carrier could easily have some hidden malfeasonous. Lot’s of employers especially states manipulate insurance to benifit the employer at the expense of the workers, so once again she might have some explaining to do.

I’ve been pretty silent on this one until now, because I’d like to see this be exposed by the report, not from a blog leak. That will give it much more meaning to all those state “workers” and therefore to the rest of the country.

If the reports are true that Palin’s husband was behind the firing without her knowledge (which is dubious) isn’t that just about as unethical as her pushing the firing directly? I mean the unelected spouse of the governor was meddling in state affairs:

“Palin’s husband and top aides said in affidavits provided to The Associated Press that the governor remained in the dark while Todd Palin repeatedly asked top state officials to help get his former brother-in-law kicked off the state police force.”

http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2008/10/09/politics/main4511568.shtml

If they run with this lame “ignorance” line doesn’t it just point up her incompetence?

You know what I am worried about? I keep thinking she released her own ‘report’ because she is very very sure the solons will not release B-flowers’ tommorow.
I have this horrible vision of “personal” phone calls being made to Alaska by Cheney in the wee, cold hours.

AKM posted it’s about 50/50 they release it.

I almost feel like the republic hangs in the balance. Because Palin elected would be a disaster, and nothing is for sure yet.

The chameleon: who is the real Sarah Palin?

FWIW the story of the Troopergate report is all over the British media. This article from the Guardian puts the story in context. It works well as a sober analysis of SP’s motivation and ambition as well as a summary of events leading up to the report.

For me, this sort of article works much better than an obvious rant. The unadorned facts speak for themselves, don’t they?

10 10 2008
Michael

Well, I hope they do publish it, otherwise those ‘outsiders’ from Texas who have come up to Alaska to muck up the politics and waste the courts time will have won. Alaskans and the rest of us deserve better.

I think both those who have felt the wrath of the Palin machine and those who have seen others feel it will take this opportunity to end her career now. Since it’s now pretty obvious that she’s not going to Washington, if they don’t finish this job and not only publish, but prosecute Troopergate and all the other unethical and in some cases illegal activities; they best get the heck out of town themselves, because surely as the darkness of winter falls, Palin will be back in town, and retribution is a real bitch (lipstick not required).

It’s a litany of arrogant abuse of power, mis-use of state funds (travel budget to fly her family around?), absence from office (316 per Diem days in 18 months?), use of outside email accounts (Yahoo!) for state business with obvious intent to hide records from scrutiny (yes it was hacked, but the information is REAL!!).
Sounds like time for a special prosecutor and a recall campaign. Troopergate is just the tip of the iceberg.

On the way out, you can thank her for being audacious enough to accept McCain’s VP offer. The press would have never shined such a bright light on these issues without it.

It’s especially hard to believe that she was unaware of Todd’s calls, since he probably made them from her office.

Make that plural– more than one worried heart in San Francisco for whom your website has been a soothing balm in the midst of this depressing debacle. I know that we here in the Bay Area live in a cozy bubble of progressive thinking society, but it is quite daunting and depressing to be reminded of just how stuck so many parts of the country — mostly rural — are in this contrived, fear-induced paranoia of reactionary, rightest politics. I know that the only thing that can possibly save us from this human miasma is evolution and the dying off of the extremists — with the hope that their offspring are less beholden to the outdated and useless paradigms. Your site is definitely a reassuring light amidst the swath of blind conservatism. Thank you for your insights, honesty, reporting, and most of all sense of humor about the how the predicaments of Alaskan politics has roped in and tied the rest of the country to its immediate outcomes. Thanks, thanks, thanks a bunch! I’m not religious, but this is where I go back to praying for the best possible outcomes, for November 5th, but also for justice to be served to all parties, the people of Alaska, and indeed the rest of us who suddenly find ourselves with the honor of experiencing your Governor’s inappropriate, dishonorable, unprofessional, and vindictive behavior.

I mean, this is not going to be one of their “controlled environments” where they hand pick the crowd and make sure it is going to be a love-fest for their candidate.

What if Palin comes out and gets mercilessly booed by the 15,000 fans ?

Dear Alaskans:

I have been waiting with great interest for the release of the legislative report covering this sordid chapter in Alaska’s political history. A history which, I might add, appears to have had its share of ups and downs over the years.

I have an interest in knowing what the options would be in the event that it is determined that the governor did in fact abuse her power by acting illegally. I am assuming that there is a legal violation here but, that too is an open question. Is an ethical of this sort a violation of law in the state of Alaska?

Other questions:
Could the governor be reprimanded, disciplined, censured, impeached, or
prosecured?

When does her term expire?

Do the residents of Alaska have what it takes to proceed to the fullest extent
of the law. Same question regarding the legislature?

Lastly, although I certainly don’t have enough information to make such an important judgement regarding this Walt Monegan, I do have what appears to be a rather interesting suggestion. He seems to have a wealth of public service experience (35 years); He certainly know how the governance of all levels of state goverment works; He also appears to know the “players” throughout Alaska; and, MOST IMPORTANTLY, he has shown himself to be beyond reproach as a person of the highest moral and ethical character.

Question based upon the above. Would Walt Monegan represent a good candidate to serve as Alaska’s NEXT GOVERNOR???? There is no doubt that he has at least one solid vote already…. HIS MOM.

I would surely appreciate any responses to my questions as well as any comments that you may have. Thank you.

Biden: Palin Was in 6th Grade the Last Time McCain Had a New Idea

ABC News’ Matthew Jaffe reports: At a Thursday afternoon rally at William Jewell College in Liberty, Mo., Democratic vice presidential nominee Joe Biden fired back at his Republican counterpart Gov. Sarah Palin for a comment she made two weeks ago about his age.

“Sarah Palin says, you know, ‘I was in second grade when Joe Biden was elected to the United States Senate at age 29.’ That’s true, but she was in sixth grade the last time John had a new idea.”

New Poll Shows Obama Leads North Carolina by 6%

Concerns about efforts to suppress voter turnout now mounting

A Public Policy Polling survey of North Carolina voters gives Sen. Barack Obama a 6% point lead over Sen. John McCain, in a state no Democrat has carried since 1976. Reports suggest that new voter registration favors Democrats 6 to 1, and some have expressed concern that Republican party operatives may try to stop first-time voters from casting votes, challenging their registration or misdirecting them to incorrect polling places.

HEY AKM, some good news – not the Personnel Board at all

In an effort to head off the report, McCain campaign spokesman Taylor Griffin released the campaign’s own version of events. That report, which Griffin said was written by campaign staffers, says the Legislature has taken a legitimate policy dispute between a governor and one of her commissioners, and portrayed it as something inappropriate.

Something interesting to read while you’re waiting for you-know-what ;)

Obama’s Voter Registration Explosion

Over the past few weeks of traveling with Barack Obama, it’s striking to see how the campaign prioritizes practical organizing at his events. Local operatives are ferried to the stage, so they can make “asks” for goals they know far better than the traveling campaign staff. Those asks range from registration deadlines to early vote programs to joining the text message network, if it’s considered effective in a given region. (I definitely never saw field organizers empowered like that when I worked on the Kerry campaign.) That field outreach is supported, of course, by a sophisticated mobilization online.

So in an article for next week’s Nation, I tried to explore how these efforts reinforce each other. Here are some excerpts:

Sarah Palin’s public speaches analyzed as poetry:

“her newest work sounds more like the free-flowing stream-of-consciousness of Frank O’Hara. O’Hara’s influence can also be seen in direct, concrete references, like “the New York Times” and “Barack Obama.” But this new directness does not mean she has abandoned her commitment to abstraction. Indeed, the hazy syntactical relationship between her words and any kind of referent is just as present here. Like Emily Dickinson, she uses pronouns like “It” and “they” without a clear antecedent so as to elide any reduction of her work to a single interpretation. She prefers that the reader get lost in the twists and turns of her mysterious, snaking sentences. If there is a connection between all these orphaned clauses, she doesn’t want to impose a meaning on it. The very idea of meaning becomes obsolete; reason and logic are abandoned. She aims for, and achieves, an emotional effect that transcends thinking. She is a poet who captures the confusion of our times. Language, she seems to suggest, cannot begin to capture the experience, only suggest, or gesture toward it. ”

I’m an Canadian Eastcoaster, Nova Scotian to be exact, and we tend to be, like, get in your face people, when we are serious about an issue. Canada is the United States of America’s brother and sisters and we will stand by our family and friends always,when they need us. So, to all 14 members of the Alaskan State Legislative Council, I am not going away till you do the right thing for Alaskans and all Americans. You think my emails were annoying, better get use to hearing my annoying voice also.

Given that Sarah Palin appears to have declared herself innocent via the Personnel Board (how do you spell conflict of interest??), I do not see how the Judicial Committee can come to any conclusion other than accepting and releasing the Branchflower report.

There’d have to be something really messed up with the report if the JC does not release it.

Or, a non-release could be an indication not only that certain members have no self-respect or integrity, but also that Alaskan politics are as stunk up as in any of the Lower 48.

This is a comment that’s just about my own personal preference, but I wish people would get off the “palin baby question.” It’s way too Area 51/Triple bullet Theory for me and makes the people who question Palin’s suitability for any elected office appear to be conspiracy nuts.

She’s got plenty of sustainable negatives. Let’s stick to discussing those.

My money is on the tampering with the workmen’s comp files. That’s a pretty big no-no and gets lots of “I’m too big for my britches” so “I have the right to see anything in anyones file” into deep do-do. Those wonderful American workers she’ssuppose to be so concerned about are not going to be happy knowing she has been snooping in private medical records. Also the states contract with the Workmen’s Comp insurance carrier could easily have some hidden malfeasonous.

All I want for Christmas is the impeachment of Sarah Palin.

Ok, for Halloween. Or Thanksgiving. Or New Years.

Just gitterdun.

Wouldn’t the words, “President-Elect Barack Obama” be the most wonderful Christmas/Hanukkah/Kwaanza/New Year’s gift to America?

Aside from that, I see Alaska as a little like my home state of Minnesota. They have an independent streak, and don’t try to tell them what to do, or they will elect a professional wrestler as their governor! (And they just may elect a comedian to the Senate…at least I hope they do!) I think that Alaskans will INSIST upon the report being released.

And I agree it was an idiotic move to release a “statement of innocence” BEFORE the report is released. It’s like having the police show up at your door and you saying, “I had nothing to do with that robbery! And Bubba fired the gun!” even though the police hadn’t said anything.

Clearing the Ayers

By GAIL COLLINS

“…The McCain folks have been obsessed with William Ayers, a neighbor of Obama’s who is a professor at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Back in the 1960s, Ayers and his wife, Bernardine Dohrn, were leaders of the Weather Underground, an antiwar group whose penchant for violence was exceeded only by its haplessness. Ayers has since become an education expert and was named Chicago’s Citizen of the Year in 1997. He gave Obama a house party when Obama was running for the State Senate.

In my experience, most State Senate hopefuls are so thrilled at any sign of interest that they would happily attend a reception given by a homeless couple in their cardboard box…”

AKM – Thank you for your courage and diligence in reporting on the mess that is Alaska politics– the toxic spill that has now spread to the entire country.

Whether the Branchflower report comes out today or not, Sarah Palin is damned either way. There should be no weeping and wailing if it is suppressed, because eventually it will come out, and the damage has already been done. Beyond the hard core that supports her no matter what, serious questions have been raised about her integrity as a public servant. It is clear that she and her husband have abused the power of the office of Governor.

As far as the election goes? We were bamboozled in 2000 and in 2004. Both elections were stolen by illegal Republican voter fraud, a dubious Supreme Court decision, and irregularities in the voting mechanism (Diebold). But we’re paying attention now. The world has changed. And with an economy in freefall, we don’t have anything to lose by demanding accountability and truth from our elected officials.

I was a little too young to take to the streets in the 60’s. But I’m just the right age now. And I want my democracy back.

sauerkraut @4:58, yeah, I agree. There will probably be more than a few Republican/McCain/Palin lovers who will stauhchly try to claim that her investigation was the legit one, and the one from the JC was “rigged”, but that has no leg to stand on when the committee deciding is 10-4 Republican! If a majority of the committee vote to accept Branchflower’s report, it can hardly be called partisan, or laid at the feet of these apparently mythical Alaskan Obama “operatives”.

But we will still have much work to do, mudpuppies, in the next few weeks to try to counter the claims of ignorance with the claims of reason. I know that some of the people who write comments on blogs and news stories are lost causes, but it’s those undecideds. those fence-sitting folks, who need to hear what we know, why we know it to be true, and why we think having McCain/Palin at the helm of the Good Ship America would be worse (some might even say a far worse) than Captain Obama and First Mate Biden.

I am also hopeful of the JC voting to accept the Branchflower report and having whatever part of it (if not all of it) be made available to the public as allowed by law. Not to do so would put the AK JC under the microscope, and I’m sure most of the members would rather not have to have that situation – not that I think they neccessarily have anything to hide. In fact, if the McCain campaign ever tried to inluence the Republican members of the JC to vote AGAINST release of the Branchflower report, that would make things look even worse. Shovel, meet hole.

Still, I’d rather not go there. No good for either side, really. Let’s all pray, send good thoughts and/or encouraging e-mails, whatever, that today 14 Alaskans will stand strong for what’s right.

And for those who vote “yea”, we need to buy them a fruit basket or something.

Four years ago, we bought a Border Collie from a private “prison dog” rescue. Later that year, the owner of the rescue, Toby Young, helped a prisoner escape using the van owned by the rescue. They went from Kansas to Tennessee and had two weeks of…freedom.

Now, Toby Young is serving time for the escape, and will be doing Federal time for allowing her lover to have a gun.

So, according to Sarah Palin, I am guilty because I gave her money (for the dog) which *could* have later been used to assist in the escape of a felon. I never looked at it that way before!

My thought is that McPalin must be in major dire straits to send First Dud out on the campaign trail? What’s he going to do at Saturday’s barbecue being held at the Moosehead Trail Trading Post in Palmyra in Maine– be a puppet for McPalin and spout the same old crap we’ve been hearing for days? I guess it’s about the same as bringing in Cindy Richbags to fight his fight earlier this week…creepy and desperado-mode.

By the way, if they don’t come up with something new and more “enlightening”, (’cause God forbid they talk about real issues like economy, housing, how people are losing their jobs left and right)…I think I’m going to have to throw up the next time I hear them speak!

And, shoot me now if McCain does another ‘he he he’…sounds as if he is dying…we actually were on the floor laughing the other night listening — that could be part of a drinking game, too!! :-)

Seriously though, I was watching Rachel Maddow and she said, “just in from the Associated Press, here’s a report that is claiming Sarah is innocent…” I honestly thought “wow, what happened there, they already finalized it all?”…but come to find out, uh, no that was just Gotcha’Palin proclaiming her own innocence…I honestly couldn’t believe it — sick, sick, and more sick. It actually devalues her that much more in my eyes anyway (don’t know if she was any less devalued already!) and glad to see that in most here on this site as well!

#1 reason is great! And very sweet and true.

McC Campaign can declare their nominated Veep’s innocence all they want, but this is a matter — and has been a matter — that began in Alaska, conducted by Alaskans, supported by the Alaskan Supreme Court on appeal. Doesn’t the legislative council issue it? If the local lawmakers want to hold onto a shred of credibility, they will release it.

If the report is not publically released, it’ll be leaked.

If the report is not released and Palin is not guilty and charged, she is another OJ Simpson situation in my opinion. It took almost 13 years for OJ to be convicted of a crime, but Palin is different. She actually makes decisions for towns, cities, and possibly America. A LARGE percentage of people do NOT believe this woman is innocent and we deserve all the facts and a say.

Iffen Palin can have one of her own publicity hacks regurgitate her words and declare her as being innocent (pure as the new-driven snow, no less), then the Vatican is going to have to lay off their beatification department and rethink the whole process.

Will the doctrine of Papal Infallibility have to be rewritten to include an automatic elevation to sainthood immediately after the puffs of white smoke shoot out of the Sistine Chapel’s chimney?

I think if there is enough evidence for a criminal referral, possibly related to the worker’s comp stuff, they will have no choice but to release it or risk an impeachment of Palin if she is elected to the White House. If they choose not to release it, it probably indicates it was pretty minor, petty (but nevertheless, inappropriate) stuff. One concern is about the legislator who is already publicly making a point about only addressing the firing of Monegen and not looking at anything else in the report because Branchflower was not authorized to do so (can’t remember the guy’s name–it’s on ABC.com). He’s claiming that this stand to supposedly “protect the integrity of the legislative process.” First of all, it’s a bit of stretch to say that info regarding Todd’s behavior and the possible tampering with a worker’s comp claim are not related to the Monegen inquiry. The Palin’s pattern of behavior re: Wooten goes directly to her motivation to fire Monegen. Secondly, if in the course of an investigation you discover evidence of criminal behavior, officers of the court, which Branchflower is, are obligated to disclose that information. I think, though, that from this legislator’s comments, we have a pretty good idea of what at least some of these guys are thinking and how they will try to interfere with release to the public. Pretty scary.

If they choose not to release the report, is there any legal recourse? I’m guessing not, based on the Alaskan court’s principled stand on respecting the authority of the legislative branch in the two court challenges the Repubs brought up.

Elections officials deny illegally purging voters

A newspaper report Thursday said tens of thousands of eligible voters have been removed from rolls or blocked from registering in at least six swing states. Election officials lined up to defend their registration procedures and said they had done nothing wrong.

The New York Times based its findings on reviews of state records and Social Security data, and said it had identified apparent problems in Colorado, Indiana, Ohio, Michigan, Nevada and North Carolina.

Anyone want to bet that the election officials in those states are Republicans? And do you know how/why they purged them? They went directly to Social Security records (that’s where they are supposed to go last) and if there was any discrepancy, they purged the voter. Now discrepancies were things like the name is not a perfect match (i.e. on Social Security you included your middle initial, but on your voter registration you didn’t). I read somewhere that a group of legislators looking into the matter found that most of them would have been purged under the criteria those registrars used. Something needs to be done NOW to make sure that these people can vote. I would be murderously angry if I was told that I couldn’t vote because some clerk made a mistake!

I think they have to release the report. If they don’t, the AK legislature draws a whole lot of negative attention to themselves. Also be not releasing it they force the media to draw their own conclusions which really can’t help anyone, especially Sarah Palin.

Although if they don’t release it, I think it is only logical to conclude that the report is very damaging to Sarah Palin. At least that is what I personally will conclude!

Those of us who live outside of Alaska’s borders don’t count for much in the eyes of State Legislators. Maybe we should be e-mailing the Republican National Committee and McCain headquarters in our most grownup and rational tones to ask them to encourage the release of the report. Our theory, of course, is our worry that if the report is not release we and everybody else we know will most certainly assume the worst… And what we imagine will certainly be worse than reality.

I can find reference to Mr. Biden’s wife, Jill, (and daughter) going around door to door in the town where she grew up, but Joe’s wife still works as a teacher, and she seemingly does her campaigning in the late afternoon/evening after putting in her regular hours at school (http://cbs3.com/local/Biden.Joe.Obama.2.822116.html ).

And there is mention of her being in Tallahasee in September with Obama’s wife.

Maybe it’s the moose hunting in Maine which has attracted Todd (or the cranberries in the moose droppings. Perhaps they’re trying to brighten up the mooseberry jewellery line)?

Now, I have a confession to make. I’ve not said this to anyone but I knew if I shared this with you guys, I would be understood.

“I DREAMED about John McCain last night”. I dreamed I told him off
I told him he was no hero. He was not honorable. I told him I did not give a damn about him being a POW. That him inciting this type of racial and religous divide was beyond ridiculous.

I told him to his face in front of thousands of people. Man this thing is getting to me. I have been emailed CNN’s Campbell Brown asking her
to get them to STOP.

My next step is emailing the editors of all the news papers in my area.

I am really concerned when the election is over, there will be riots and/or other violent acts, especially if its Obama.

The early show talked about the expected release of the report today, they even have someone in Anchorage waiting for the release. Kind of think they are going to release it, look at the flack the AG took for trying to keep the investigation from going forward. If they vote not to release it I think the sh*t will hit the fan, and they will end up looking like a bunch of John McCains puppets. At this point it appears McCain cannot win the election so his power to control things is greatly diminished.
For Kittyonice:
Actually most of the hard line republicans in rural areas here in the west have moved here from other places, a goodly number of them from California cities, LA, Sacramento, and Redding to be specific. ( i put myself through two years of college delivering mail so I know this for a fact) The rural west has always tended to be progressive because we know that “no man is an island” we must take care of our own on a local level, and by extension on a national one. The old adage “The chain is only as strong as its weakest link ” is our town mantra and has been for all of my 47 years.
We certainly have racisits here but they have come from some city where the threat to life and limb usually comes from another person, here the major threat comes from the elements people if they have good character and are willing to contribute in some positive way to our town have always been welcome, nothing beyond that matters much. The vast majority of us are very intelligent, many are well educated and those that are not have plenty of life experience that is often better than formal education. Please do not just assume that being rural equals stupid, racist morons. It does not.

Halcrow – re Palin stumping in Maine.

He’s up in the northern part of the state. Presque Isle is full of Canadian-stock Catholics who don’t much care for the anti-Catholic crap coming from Palin’s church or his mouth.

Palmyra, however, is fertile ground for him for it’s full of incendiary demi-evangelicals who raid each others churches and preach anti-catholicism. Guns are a big part of a boy growing up and there’s plenty of pregnant jr. high and high school girls who get hitched via shotgun. Funny thing is, when I look at that picture of Palin from the Boston Herald, I am reminded of a local child molester who looks alot like him.

3. With regrets McCain accepts her resignation.
4. McCain asks his friend, Joe Lieberman, to join the ticket as VP.
5. Polls go up for the Republican ticket in swing states.
6. With Joe’s help, McCain wins Florida.
7. McCain-Leiberman win the election.

Bill.. If Palin goes, McGrumpy is dead. He will never recover from replacing his VP. His flawed judgement will come into play, since he supposedly KNEW about troopergate before selecting her and he still did. So, his base won’t even trust him if he knowingly picked a flawed person for VP.

I’d think Lieberman is too poisonous anyway. He’d most likely pick Mitt Romney.. But whatever he does, it will be too late to alter the election. I don’t think anyone who replaced their VP choice mid-stream has ever won.

Personally, i am so sick of McCrumpy, i want to puke everytime I hear his high pitched whiny voice. I’ve tried emulating NBC’s Heros and tried to channel the power to make things explode via TV, but so far, he’s still there.

Is it just me, but does he look pastier and paler each day? I’m sorta wondering if the formadahyde is leaking. Weekend at Bernies anyone?

Ok, so looking at the new last night I realise that the McFailin’ camp has its supporters all riled up. I listened to supporters vent that their concerns and anger is not about the ‘economy”(huh), it’s about socialists taking over the White House…and by the way who exactly paid that black fellow to stand up and beg poor Macky to dig deep into Obama to find something to drag him through muddy waters with. It was so obvious why he would be placed in the front row, and was one of the few to take the microphone and plead. It was all well calculated, so that the accusations of racism against the McFailin’ camp could be dismissed. Trust me we black folks over here ain’t buying it. We have his sort of character right amongst us. Black folks who would allow themselves to be used for a price. And I must point out that for us in these parts, this election is not about race. We have white American living amongst us who we love dearly, and I was lucky to come across some who are Democrats who I can share my views with. It is about the way the Republicans have put the US economy in a mess. It is about our relatives who are American citizens who have been deployed to Iraq time and time again. As I have said before, because we rely so heavily on trade with the US, whenever America sneezes, we catch a cold. WE HAD ENOUGH OF THE REPUBCLICANS, BUSH AND THE BUSH DOCTRINE (even I knew what the Bush doctrine was, Sarah could have asked me…LOL)

caligrl Hussein wolves eat Palin

Has anyone checked out Andrew Halro’s blog? Its very interesting so far. On Nov. 19 of ’07…he writes of Mat. Maid dairy farm-
Havemeister, whose father in law is one of the few remaining dairy farmers who is currently making money off of the state dairy and who was appointed to her position this summer with little or no qualifications, goes on to write in her memo:

“In addition, I would like to remind staff that no one may disclose confidential information. Nor may staff disclose information gained in the course of ones official duties that could any way result in a benefit to the staff member or his or her family.”

The red flags and hypocrisy are endless with this memo which was copied to both Commissioner Tom Irwin and Deputy Commissioner Richard LeFebvre.

First, Matanuska Maid is a public asset but the Palin administration has been running it like it was their own private corporation. Already, under the existing administration, they’ve spent an inordinate amount of board time in executive sessions that are already confidential.

The reason for the gag order is clear: The more Palin’s folks running the dairy skirt the law, the more employees speak out.

Over the last week alone, press reports have stated that Mat Maid might end up in the red. With losses mounting every month and payables continuing to grow, the state will have to pony up for losses incurred by the mismanagement of Palin’s handpicked board.

Also, just two days ago the media reported that former Mat Maid CEO Joe Van Treek has filed a lawsuit against the Creamery Corporation for failing to make good on his employment contract. Van Treek becomes the second former executive to file suit against the state as Terry Clark already has filed suit for $500,000 for the same reasons.

In both cases the state is severely exposed.

In Clark’s case he was told repeatedly during an exit interview that he was being laid off. In fact it was Board Chair Kristen Cole who instructed Van Treek to go out to Palmer with a state employee and lay Clark off due to cost cutting. During the meeting at the Palmer plant that Clark managed, he was told more than once by both Van Treek and Joe Austerman of the Division of Agriculture that he was being laid off due to cost cutting and would get his pension.

A few weeks later Clark received a letter in the mail from the Creamery Board’s new lawyer saying he would not get his pension because he was fired not laid off as he was told.

Van Treek’s claims also appear to be open and shut case. Sources have told me that a long string of emails exist between Van Treek and the board confirming the terms of his departure that clearly spell out the Creamery Board’s pension obligations.

It’s becoming quite clear that the governor’s hand picked board of her friends have left a long paper trail since they took over the dairy in June that will prove gross mismanagement and a pattern of misleading the public.
Hmmmm! Its shaping up that there are quite a few things to investigate Palin for! :)

Johnny McOld simply has nothing to offer, so he makes it about Hussein, he makes it about Ayers, he makes it about anything OTHER than what problems America is currently having.

And I would think if the world could vote, it would be a huge landslide in favor of young, progessive and presidential. Obama epitomizes what people think of when they think of a classic President. JFK anyone?

There’s nothing in McCain’s soul. He is cold, his soul is dead. He wants to win so badly, he’s sold his soul to the devil, which was probably a bad deal for the devil. He’s been soulless for so long. He brings in young, cute Barbie to ratchet up the testosterone, yet, all she proved to be was a vacuous, empty vessel of body parts, but no heart. A mom who’s willing to expose her less than perfect family to the media, and chooses fame over motherhood is unexplainable.

There is always a final judgement, and for them, I’d not want to take bets they get passing grades.

fixthebroken, hopefully it will cost McPalin votes–as did the late breaking release of GW Bush’s DUI in 2000. However, like 2000, it is not a guarantee. Imagine McCain doesn’t make it through inaugral parade and we endure 4 states of the nation [totally down the toilet don't cha know] speeches beginning with “Guys . . . and Gals.”

Aussie Puck Mule Hussein, Thanks but Forewarned is forearmed. The venom from McHaters’ rallies is becoming hysterical.

May be we need to organize rallies around the country asking McHaters to stop pouring gasoline on their fires of hate—before someone is hurt. Are you really following what is being said in these rallies? Aren’t you concerned? How best can we focus attention on the venom that is coming from McHaters’ rallies?

These haters are talking of terrorist & communist taking over the White House. Do you know what the crazy Right (including the Religious Right) was saying just before Rev MLK was killed?

All I am trying to say is that we need to be proactive & do something that is more visible before someone is hurt!

I think your post is right on.. We’re not voting for a person’s skin color, we’re voting for the right ideology, the right decisions and whats best for America. Barack Obama is clearly that choice.

If you ever hear someone say they won’t vote for Obama because he is black, ask them “Ok, let’s say you have your dream job with great benefits, then you find out your new boss is black. Would you quit your job?”

If they say “of course not”, ask them “What’s the difference between having a black boss and having a black President of the United States”?

On the campus of WVU today there are protestors holding up HUGE signs saying Obama is for abortion. They also have huge pictures of aborted fetuses. Some of the signs tell in detail how an abortion is done. Just another day of work for Repugs!

So, we don’t tell our children about birth control because we don’t want them to know about such things, but it’s ok to have disturbing pictures of aborted fetuses on the street for them to see.

Does that make any sense to you?

Obviously the McCain campaign thinks it will have an affect on the Presidential race, otherwise they would not be working feverishly to contain the possible damage.

The affect I think it will have will be to push more Independents off the fence onto Obama’s side.

Who paid him is probably the same person who paid the black guys who protested at an Obama rally. When asked after the rally why he was protesting Obama, one of the guys clearly said, “because they paid me to do it”. He never did say who paid him, but it’s pretty obvious it was a McCain operative.

If people are curious, here are two websites that are collecting information about Sarah’s other ethical issue, the issue of who are Trig Palin’s parents:

http://www.palinbabyquestion.com

The one question I would like to have answered is what happened to all the pictures that were taken of Sarah Palin at the convention in Texas the day before she supposedly gave birth to Trig? I find it inconceivable that no one took Sarah’s picture when she was a guest speaker. One picture from that convention showing her 8 months pregnant would put all the rumors to rest. So, where are they!

Sarah Palin’s Alaskan Wasteland
The New Republic: A Look At Governor Palin’s Environmental Record

The New Republic) This column was written by Sheila Kaplan and Marilyn Berlin Snell.
…Unfortunately, as governor of a state with a birth-defect rate that’s twice the national average, and which has the gloomy status as repository of toxic chemicals from around the world, Palin has pursued environmental policies that seem perfectly crafted to swell the ranks of special-needs kids. It’s true that Alaska’s top leaders have placed industry wishes over environmental protection for years. But, instead of correcting this problem, she’s compounded it. Peer into her environmental record, and Palin ends up looking a lot like George W. Bush…

Halcrow — that is a great article and yet, not surprising really since she’s already on record several times saying “we can’t look to the past” and has never wanted to address “how’s of what caused the issues” — she ‘s made that real clear — that it doesn’t actually matter!!! Not the smartest in the pack now is she? She keeps saying we need to address these issues — and WHAT has SHE done? I just see it being relevant when it is relevant for her, but otherwise, I don’t think she gives a hoot (in her terms) either way, unless it is for political gain.

I mean she uses her baby for political movement — as if she would have been an advocate for mom’s with children with special needs if it weren’t for Trig…give me a break!

Basically, all I see her and the McPalin campaign doing is hitting different issues when it suits them but never providing true answers or taking accountability for what they caused or believe in — just spouting hate and anger to a people that don’t need any of it!

I told him he was no hero. He was not honorable. I told him I did not give a damn about him being a POW. That him inciting this type of racial and religous divide was beyond ridiculous.]]]]

Okay, dream confession here, too. When Bush Jr was running for the presidency in the 2000 election, I dreamed I was dating him. TWICE I dreamed I was dating him.

I think he reminded me of the sons of wealthy people in Montecito. These son were spoiled, indulged, didn’t have to work for anything, and never had to take responsibility for their actions.

Then, about age 26, the parents decided it was time for their son to be responsible, make a career, take over the family estates, whatever. And, when the sons couldn’t or didn’t, the parents would often kick them out on the street.

In my dream I felt so sorry for Bush Jr.

I believe the McCain campaign are funding the registration deceiption in the swing states.

My theory is: It is brought to light ACORN is fraudgently registering voters “ghost”. The fraud has been exposed, so it gives the swing states excuses to purge real voters, as well as the fraud voters. Just so we will think there are not that many new registered voters, giving the Repubs the opportunity to steal the election without raising questions or doubt.

I bet you those ACORN employees who did this, are not for Obama. The trail will lead to John McCain’s campaign!

This report that cleared LaPalina is only a “McCain” report in that it is made up of three persons on the AK state personnel board that were appointed to their positions by LaPalina. The three are state of AK employees, but since they have been appointed to their positions by her they could reasonably be considered to be more than biased and subject to pressure by M/P.

McCain can’t seem to make up his mind about Obama lol

McCain gets a little straight talk from supporters
Email|Link|Comments (0) Posted by Sasha Issenberg October 10, 2008 06:17 PM

LAKEVILLE, Minn.– Republican rage against Barack Obama claimed a new victim today: John McCain.

McCain was booed at a town-hall meeting here when he rebuked a man who said he was “scared…to bring a child up” under an Obama presidency. “I have to tell you he is a decent person and a person that you do not have to be scared of as president of the United States,” McCain said to audible disapproval.

The man was one of nine who appealed to McCain to confront Obama more forcefully, several of them raising specific controversies dominating news, including Obama’s relationships with Bill Ayers and the group ACORN. McCain seized the microphone from the hands of a woman who called Obama “an Arab,” and scolded her.

“He’s a decent family man that I happen to have disagreements with on fundamental issues,” McCain said, to scant approval. In fact, the most rousing applause of the afternoon was saved not for McCain, but for a man who begged him to “fight” in next week’s debate.

“There’s a difference between rhetoric and record, but you can still be respectful,” McCain said to one questioner. “I will point out his record and I will do it with respect.”

That was frequent refrain from McCain earlier in the year, but one rarely heard as his campaign has aggressively shifted its attention to questions about Obama’s character. For the first time, McCain attempted to distance himself from scattered reports of rally attendees making violent threats against Obama and calling him a “terrorist” and “bum.”

“Ninety-nine and 44/100ths of every person who has come to my town-hall meetings has been respectful,” McCain said.

At times, the appeals were so desperate for McCain to be tougher on Obama that he felt convinced to assure one voter that he cared as much about the election’s outcome as they did.

“Believe me, I am motivated,” McCain said.
