Stapleton, This Town Ain’t Big Enough…

12 10 2008

A lonely tumbleweed blows down 4th Avenue in a little frontier town known as Anchorage.  The sun is cold, and yeller, and low in the sky.  A pair of bat-wing doors swings open.  A man in a white hat.   It’s the Marshall.  He’s cool and he’s tough, and he don’t take no guff from nobody.  The black hat waits outside, and in the street a crowd gathers.  They know what’s coming, and it ain’t gonna be pretty.  The Marshall has his prey in sight, and this town ain’t big enough for the both of them.  His eyes squint as he approaches the varmit.  There is no sound but the clink clink clink of spurs. Their eyes lock, as the crowd presses in. There’s fixin’ to be a fight.

Marshall (Representative) Les Gara doesn’t like how varmit (Palin mouthpiece) Meg Stapleton has been talking about some of the respected townsfolk, like (former Commissioner of Public Safety) Walt Monegan, (Rep.) Hollis French, (Independent Investigator) Steve Branchflower, and (Rep.) Bill Weilechowski. No, he doesn’t like it at all. *squint*

The dust blows…. He confronts Stapleton head on. He wants one thing, and one thing only. *spits tobacco* An apology…

Intermission. Get popcorn.

Stapleton, you no account sidewinder…you’ve crossed the good people of this town for the last time.  You got ’til sundown to get out.

Her loyalties are not to the state of alaska, that much is clear.
She’s way too personally involved in this stuff. Who pays her?
The state, right? She’s made a nice mess of this…

We need more Garas down here in Cali. He’s great, at least here (sorry I don’t know his record or reputation) in getting her more off onto her campaign spiel…this cookie’s performance here pretty much guarantees another level of a look at Gov Palin’s shenanigans. She’s not that smooth; she should have kept on walking when she saw Gara or managed to avoid this in front of cammies. Not that hard. She created more evidence.

Have only seen part 1 and as a retired PR exec, I’ve gotta say this broad is having a major meltdown.

Earlier I suggested that after Palin is impeached, Monagan should run for governor. I don’t know beans about AK politics but a Gara/Monegan ticket might motivate me to move!

I’m glad this is on YouTube, now – I can stop sending all my friends to KTUU’s site and use a direct link, instead.

The Other Human and I have been wondering for weeks, now, what Meg is going to do for work after this campaign closes – will anyone up here trust her again? If the unscientific sampling of my conservative acquaintances holds, she’s alienating people who were willing to give the governor the benefit of the doubt.

To get the word out quickly and hope this goes viral takes everybody posting links to this on other blogs. “Harpoons” it’s called…with a neat understandable couple of sentences about why this important *to the lower 48*–AK and her army of muddies need to weigh in with some copy content ideas…tied to national “need to know” and for one thing it seems that *Obama* ops had nothing to do with nothing…branchflower is a repub…that’s what hit me…but I’m not in the swim of this as well as many of you all…

Wow. Meg Stapleton has bugged the heck out of me ever since she joined the Truthiness Squad, and this was a triple dose of unpleasantness. If there’s anyone more dislikeable in this whole mess than Palin, it’s Stapleton.

Watching those strangely mesmerizing yet repellent hand gestures, I wonder if she majored in drama, not journalism? I used to think she was just parroting whatever the McCainites fed her. Now I think she might believe her own crap. When Palin comes back, it will be The O’Callaghan and Stapleton Show that will keep reminding us of her sins in absentia.

I do wish we could see how this little encounter ended. Did she slink away or crawl back into the gutter?

Gotta love Les Gara. How thrilling to see someone finally talk back to one of these chumps.

Taupe Armageddon Palin

Slightly off-topic but illustrative of the damage McCain/Palin and the Repub’s are doing in the lower 48 — a new poll out tonight in North Dakota shows Obama ahead 45-43. Obama pulled his staff from ND several weeks ago, ND’s repub governor is the most popular in the nation (contrary to Palin’s claim), and ND’s congressional delegation is all Democratic. This same poll says 17% of the “strong Republicans” plan to vote … for Obama! WooHoo!!!

The only conclusion I can draw is that the good people of my home state have had it with the vitriol coming from the GOP. We’re smarter than they give us credit for.

One more news flash — Todd Palin is coming to the Fargo/Moorhead area on Friday. I’m so excited to actually have the opportunity to protest. My first one ever. Any suggestions for my sign??

It’s a great day here in Minnesota/North Dakota … take that you witch!

Les Gara rocks!!!! He was right to keep insisting on whether she would give an apology. Stapleton (this was my first glimpse of her) comes across as a very insincere person. I’ll call her a LIAR. She also needs help with grammatical sentence structure (much like Sarah Palin). Does everyone in Alaska talk like that? I’m guessing they do not as evidenced by your blog. I kept rewinding the video because I was trying to understand Stapleton when she said that “he differentiated with her”. Huh? This woman is a spokesperson?

@ LaNon – Meg Stapleton used to be a reporter for the local NBC affiliate (KTUU, THE news station for most of the people I know), then disappeared from public view briefly while she worked for the local telephone utility. Palin appointed Stapleton press secretary and Communications Director; when the McCain camp moved into town, Stapleton joined the Truthiness Squad.

I actually liked her a lot when she worked for KTUU. Of course, I had a high opinion of Dan Fagan when he was a news reporter, too. Meh.

Meg used to be the local Alaska anchorwoman. She was the face of the evening news.

This is what makes her ten times more vile than you see her. People trusted her! When she started showing up on CNN as Palin’s spokeswoman, I thought she was appearing as an actual journalist! I’m sure I’m not alone in making this mistake.

Imagine if Katie Couric took a job as Obama’s spokeswoman, and the national news turned to Couric to ask questions about an Obama scandal? Most people would take her spin as the truth!

It’s beyond disgusting what Meg has done to her reputation AND to journalism. She should be deeply ashamed!

Meg Stapleton reminds me of Nicole Kidman’s character in “To Die For”.

My friends and I watching this video were so impressed by Les Gara, thanks AKM. LES GARA IS AWESOME. I love how he kept his cool and was polite.

On a side note (not relevant, but strange) is that I’ve never seen Meg Stapleton Palinbot before, except an image of her on a protest sign at an Alaskans for Truth rally on The Mudflats. When we watched this video, my friends exclaimed that I’m the spitting image of Meg Stapleton, a younger version of her. The resemblance is uncanny, I agree. Like how Tina Fey looks like SP, I look like Meg. Maybe I should change my Halloween costume idea and go as Meg Stapleton? I’m thinking post-it notes with some of SP’s lies stuck to me? I must consult Pastor Muthee to “make a way” for guidance on my Halloween costume decision.

InJuneau aka Wrangler Tractor That One Hussein

@LaNon (21:37:29) :

She came to AK to be a news anchor at KTUU from PA, where she was a reporter at an Allentown TV station. She left KTUU a few years ago and was SWWNBN’s press secretary for a while until she had a baby sometime in the past year or so (maybe just over a year ago). Then she went to work for a local phone company as a VP of something (OH, THAT’S why she’s qualified to speak for a VP candidate…). And then the JM/SWWNBN campaign hired her to be the spokesmouth for the “Truth Squad” or whatever it is they call themselves.

BTW, Spouse says it’s ironic that most organizations that have the word “truth” in their name have such a hard time practicing the speaking of it… (Alaskans for Truth CERTAINLY excepted!)…

I think Meg is trying to measure up to the standards set by that paragon of Republican PR flacks, Nixon’s press secretary, Ron Zeigler

“One writer, Christopher Lasch, noted in ”The Culture of Narcissism”: ”Many commentators assumed Ziegler was groping for a euphemistic way of saying that he had lied. What he meant, however, was that his earlier statements were no longer believable. Not their falsity but their inability to command assent rendered them ‘inoperative.’ The question of whether they were true or not was beside the point.”

Still would like more info. Is Meg an Alaska native or a PA native? How long has she been in AK? Is she still the Governor’s spokesperson, on a state salary? Who is paying her to be so foul? How do Alaskans in general feel about what she said and did these past few weeks?

Believe she was born in Washington State, and has been in Alaska for 8 or 9 years. She’s working for the McCain campaign. The Alaskans I know feel completely betrayed and disgusted with her behavior. Posts higher in the thread from Alaskans corroborate this. She was a “trusted” news figure, and has sold her integrity to the national ticket. AKM

She’s consulting to the campaign thru the Gov office job?

The best part is that Meggy, as young as she is, is probably unemployable after this campaign. Palin won’t be able to use her in Alaska because she’s poisoned the well there, there won’t be a job in Washington because there will be damn few Republicans left there, no legit news room will have such a poisonous and ineffective person even reading the local news, and Fox will have enough unemployed RedRightRadical hacks to choose from that they won’t get deep enough into the castoff barrel to get to her.

Given that she is the spokesperson for the Alaska office for the McCain-Palin ticket, I would surmise that McCain or the GOP is paying her way. I highly doubt it’s Palin. I wonder if she realizes that Palin will turn on her if/when it’s politically expedient.

Enjay aka Turbine Yukon

Ok – about to head to bed here but a theory came to mind ~~
a scary Scarah theory

We all know that Todd was furious that Wooten kept his job

We all know that Todd used Governors office and staff to “push Monegan” to fire Wooten

We know that Monegan let ppl know that “they” could be in trouble for pursuing this tactic (including Sarah)

At “some point” Sarah apparently told Todd to not talk about it anymore
right ?

Suppose he (Todd) didn’t stop talking,
couldn’t quit pursuing Monegan to get rid of Wooten –
(his personal mission to make Wooten’s life hell)

And Sarah – not having “control of Todd” – made the executive decision to reassign Monegan to get him out – because she could “control” that.

So the whole “reassignment” was relocate Monegan out of Todd’s cross-hairs

I know – it’s late and brain is on overload ……. Any thoughts ? Besides get the butt to bed ?

@Ennealogic aka PumpBustHussein (22:05:23) :

She moved to AK about 8 years ago or so. I know she came here directly from her TV job in PA but don’t know if that’s her birthstate. I believe this job is a campaign paid job, rather than the Gov’s office. She fed at that trough for just over a year or so as the Press Secretary (see my earlier comment). I think her husband owns some business there in Anchorage, so she’s not likely to be going anywhere any time soon, except maybe back to the phone company. My bet is she was angling for a D.C. job with SWWNBN, but I doubt that’s coming through any time soon!

Another Conservative comes out for Obama.
http://www.capitolhillblue.com/cont/node/11549

This election has gotten so crazy, that many start thinking that all Republicans must be ignorant. Especially when people gush over Palin, and how her MILF factor makes her a good choice for VP.

But the fact is, the Hannity group forgot that not all Republicans are stupid. In fact, some very smart folks. They simply have different political views.

And it seems many are waking up from their stupor, and seeing the Emperor is stark nekkid.

Each time a Conservative comes out for Obama, an angel gets his wings.

Thank you, Rep. Gara, for confronting this narcissistic/evil woman. Sarah Palin and Meg Stapleton both are in denial and are pathological liars. They complement each other well. Palin lies and Stapleton spins Palin’s lies. As the Legislative Council report states that “Governor Sarah Palin abused her power by violating Alaska Statute 39.52.110(a) of the Alaska Executive Branch Ethics Act. Alaska Statute 39.52.110(a) provides”, so it’s incomprehensible how anyone with the right mind could keep denying and spin the truth in this manner. According to CNN, Ms. Stapleton called the investigation “a partisan-led inquiry”, but how could she say that, especially when the Legislative Council was made up of 14 members, dominated by 10 Republicans (from her own party) and 4 Democrats?

Check this out from Newsweek today. The Personnel Board that Palin wanted to convene to handle this? They hired a spitfire Democrat lawyer to investigate for them! Sounds as if we may have two reports? (See quote fom Newsweek below)

BTW, Les Gara! What a mensch! Stapleton…unreal! Repeats the same exact lines just like her boss-‘bot. Can’t they figure out a way to give these ladies more than one way to express their spin?

McCain campaign spokeswoman Meg Stapleton dismissed the report as the product of “a partisan-led inquiry run by Obama supporters.” But there could be more land mines ahead. Some weeks ago, the McCain team devised a plan to have Palin file an ethics complaint against herself with the State Personnel Board, arguing that it alone was capable of conducting a fair, nonpartisan inquiry into whether she fired Monegan because he refused to fire Wooten, who had been involved in a messy custody battle with her sister. Some

Democrats ridiculed the move, noting that the personnel board answered to Palin. But the board ended up hiring an aggressive Anchorage trial lawyer, Timothy Petumenos, as an independent counsel. McCain aides were chagrined to discover that Petumenos was a Democrat who had contributed to Palin’s 2006 opponent for governor, Tony Knowles. Palin is now scheduled to be questioned next week, and the counsel’s report could be released soon after. “We took a gamble when we went to the personnel board,” said a McCain aide who asked not to be identified discussing strategy. While the McCain camp still insists Palin “has nothing to hide,” it acknowledges a critical finding by Petumenos would be even harder to dismiss.

Correct me if I’m wrong, but,…isn’t one of SP’s claims of “experience” the notion that she is commander-in-chief of the Alaska National Guard?
Yes?

Then, she’ s pretty lousy at it.

http://hosted.ap.org/dynamic/stories/A/AK_ALASKA_GUARD_DEPLOYMENT_AKOL-?SITE=AKWTF&SECTION=HOME&TEMPLATE=DEFAULT

A report by a nonpartisan veterans group is slamming the ongoing deployments of the Alaska National Guard to Iraq and Afghanistan.

Washington, D.C.-based Veterans For America released the report after a weeklong trip to Alaska.

The report says the Guard was deployed without the proper programs in place to care for returning troops. It primarily blames “inadequate leadership.”

It notes that guardsmen in major cities have limited access to Veterans Affairs benefits. It also says about one-quarter live in rural areas and must spend more than $1,000 to travel to Anchorage.

“The families of Guard deployed from rural Alaska were hit very hard,” the report states. “For instance, those on public assistance lost their food stamps and Medicare eligibility when their husbands were deployed because their household income temporarily increased.”

Let’s see Meg call these guys liars, too.

I did not read the article completely, the first few lines were enough for me. NOBOBY should have the right to judge a veteran unless we were there…and I understand the veteran being interviewed was there, but I (we) were not!
If you question McCain’s support of veterans go to Iraq Afganistan Veterans of America’s website…they grade all congressional members. (He got a D). Judge him on anything; but not this story…unless you were there and actually know!
Iraq/Afiganistan cannot be likened to “Nam; but still no soldier’s committment to duty should be casually tossed out for civilians to judge. Please!

Oddly enough, if this was happening in the lower ’48, well, it wouldn’t be happening,…that’s all. There would be no spin machine taking over offices or allowing other people to answer for a candidate who is clearly lying!
O’Callaghan would not have taken over a State Dept. of Law, nor would any AG have counseled citizens to ignore a subpoena.
Why?
Because they’d all be chastised, and those who could be recalled,…would be.

I believe the difference lies in there being no contiguous states to have cross/inter-state verifiability.Nobody is next-door (except Canada) to say what is and is not going on. No one is on the outlying rural areas with enough clout to tell it like it is and take these losers on.
I am so glad the Veterans have spoken up.
It’s on CBS, now. And while the State may claim that the allegations are unfounded, the proof is already out there.
The complaint has been made. She has a new answer to spin.
Palin’s ONLY executive experience is a failure. Her previous experience, that of managing those 5,500 Wasilla citizens was too much for her, and she had to hire an administrator, which one would assume then, that she is not capable of running a high school.
She claims to have delegated so much responsibility in the Governor position, and it appears she did,..since she couldn’t even handle the National Guard properly. (Maybe that was one of Todd’s jobs)
It’s about time somebody stopped her free ride.

Thank you, veterans!

If stealing Obama election signs was a sport, Republican operatives would certainly be in a league all by themselves, but it would still only be a Bush league.

The total number of signs now missing from front yards around Lancaster County shows a concerted effort on the part of some dishonorable campaign strategists (insert your own laughter here) to somehow influence the independent drive-by electorate to vote for their Joe Sixpack maverick.

There really isn’t a true relationship between willingness to purloin an opponent’s signs and influencing the election in your favor. But I empathize with your obvious exasperation; desperation is not a desirable atmosphere in which to make any decision. When it’s all you’ve got, it makes you a little crazy, doesn’t it?

At stealing signs, you win. At stealing this election this time, you lose.

KENOVA, W.Va. — Republican Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin made a pit stop in West Virginia en route to battleground Ohio, riling up some of Democrat Barack Obama’s Mountain State supporters in the process.

The Alaska governor and family members spent about 25 minutes at Tri-State Airport in Kenova after arriving Sunday. She made no remarks before her campaign motorcade headed into Ohio.

About a dozen supporters greeted Palin as she left the aircraft holding her infant son, Trig. A small group of protesters also was on hand.

Palin’s stop in West Virginia, her first since becoming John McCain’s running mate, spurred several impromptu weekend Obama rallies. One drew about 100 people Sunday outside the United Mine Workers’ Charleston district office.

Andrew Halcro’s blog has some good analysis:

http://www.andrewhalcro.com/rebranding_troopergate_a_seinfeld_moment

There’s a lot of good info in this post, but here’s what I found important:

‘The real story…

The pursuit of Wooten wasn’t about a fear for the safety of the first family, it was an attempt to get him fired so he couldn’t pay spousal support and Sarah’s sister (Molly) would get custody of the children.

During the custody battle, Molly had asked for 55/45 custody and Mike asked for 50/50. Judge Suddock ruled that Molly was under employed and he didn’t see the fairness in making Mike pay for Molly’s refusal to work a full time job.

According to Branchflower’s report, Judge Suddock was forced to comment on the ongoing situation where the Palins were trying to get Wooten fired.

He went on to say that the Palins relentless attacks on Wooten should cease and they should remember Aesop’s fable about slaying the golden goose. “For whatever reason, people are trying to slay the golden goose here and it tends to diminish his earning capacity.”

At the end of the day, Judge Sudduck granted 50/50 custody much to the displeasure of Molly.

We know that both Governor Palin and Todd had an obsession with getting Wooten fired to get even while benefiting her sister. This wasn’t about an effort based on concerns for their own safety or the safety of their family, that much we know for sure now.’

They had also interviewed Monegan’s replacement, Kopp, before the firing and mentioned Wooten during that process. Kopp was hired in short order.

So it comes down to getting someone fired so their job prospects would be diminished or ended and therefore that would change the balance in the custody battle.

What were the ‘policy and budgetary differences’ with Monegan that Meg Stapleton kept mentioning? Did anyone ever list those or what was the statement when Monegan was fired? And maybe this was covered before but how was Monegan going behind the governor’s back?

Is there a timeline somewhere of all of these actions?

The whole report will not be released because much of it is confiential personnel material…I wish we could see it, though. Think how much better a report it would be if all of the involved people had testified or given statements. Will Branchflower re-release when all of those folks who agreed to testify last week actually do?

As for out-of-state staff, what about all of the McCain folks from Liberty University (Texas)?

Les Gara’s backbone was on full display…awesome.

They will hope it was just a bad dream that they abandoned their colleagues for their self-interest. They will shudder to think what might come next for their personal ambition agendas. They are going to give it that good college try to snap back to the good old days with their colleagues. . . their “friends.”

And I hope the great people of Alaska reminds them it was not a dream and now it’s payback time.

I have a question for all you GREAT Alaskans.

HAS ANYONE BEEN ENCOURAGED TO FILE A LAW SUIT AGAINST SP??

It really doesn’t matter what type of law suit it is or who files it. What does matter is that there be a current law suit (maybe even 2) hanging over the head of the candidate for V.P. of the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. The implications of that on the campaign would, I believe, be very significant. I can’t even imagine ANY voter in America possibly voting for a candidate who is under the cloud of litigation that could result in impeachment, a large civil penality, or even further criminal charges.

If I was an Alaskan, I’d be at the courthouse at 9 AM on Tuesday morning (that’s only because Monday is Columbus Day) filing as many law suits as I possibly could. COME ON FOLKS!!!!! THIS IS IMPORTANT!!!!

Besides, it will be most interesting to see how Sen. McCain, the McCain campaign, the RNC, and the Conserative Base of the party reacts to their V.P. candidate having been charged with serious crimes in a court of law. Especially 3 weeks before election day.

Is there anyone reading this who is going to take the ball and run with it????? This is a one in a lifetime opportunity to settle this matter once and for ALL.

PLEASE, DO IT!!!!!!!!!!!

The Obama experiment

FALLS CHURCH, Va. — Lukas McGowan was sitting in an old barber’s chair, a cell phone pressed to his ear, as he contemplated a critical assignment for the closing chapter of the presidential campaign: the ground game.

The most pressing matter inside this field office for Sen. Barack Obama was not the next debate, but getting every possible voter to the polls. As McGowan surveyed an assembly line of activity, he wondered: Have all the spots been filled in the 6 to 8 p.m. shift for walking neighborhood precincts?

“When we identify sporadic voters, we want to go back to their house until they can’t stand us anymore,” said McGowan, 23, who oversees Virginia’s largest Obama operation, in Fairfax County. With a smile, he added, “As long as we’re kind and respectful.”

Having lived in Dallas for 15 years (no longer), I had to hunt for fellow Democrats. There were only two in my neighborhood. That Wick Allison, Editor in Chief of D Magazine, a confirmed and thoughtful conservative, declared his support for Obama is both heartening and, frankly, amazing.

From Allison’s perspective, Obama is not his ideal candidate but is the ideal candidate for this time in America’s history. His reasons for coming to this conclusion are intelligent, cogently argued, and indicative of a man who thinks for himself. A maverick, perhaps? –in the best sense of the word.

Who is the Real Sarah Palin?

Late in a campaign, one thing any presidential candidate does NOT want to see is the name of his VP choice in an official government report that confirms a violation of a state law with the word “ethics” in its title. Especially in Alaska where the Republican Party leadership is notoriously corrupt and cut from the same cloth as Jack Abramoff. In fact, one of the reasons Sarah Palin was catapulted to the governor’s office so quickly in the first place was because she was the last woman standing after the Republican leadership in Alaska imploded under multiple, overlapping corruption scandals. Now, with the commission’s report, even the “maverick reformer” is tainted.

Rasmussen and Zogby are the two most conservative polls and they consistently have higher numbers for the Republicans than other polls do. They were rarely right in the primaries.

Besides, even if the polls showed the race was tightening, the polls still can’t account for all the newly registered voters, cell phone users, and the fact that Democrats outvoted Republicans 3-1 in the primaries.

Here a guy with 30+ years of public service has the nerve to disagree an admitted professional hockey Mom who has also served as Governor for almost two full years. She also served as the Mayor of Wasilla where she handled the budgets in an exemplary fashion so she knows budgets. The huge deficit when she left office was someone else’s fault. Every town of 7000 people needs a huge sports complex and strip malls. If the other town officials had done their job they would have found out that the town didn’t have clear title to the land. The Mayor has too much on her plate to devote her time to problems that eventually cost the town 1.4 million dollars. Back to Walt Monegan. It is strange that Walt Monegan didn’t learn anything in 30+ years of public safety work. The Mayor of Alaska (mayor for almost two years) had to straighten him out on the needs of the Alaska State Police. Her vast experience in public safety work allowed her to take control of the situation and she had to relieve Walt Monegan for the good of Alaska. Now people are distorting the truth (if you want the truth Sarah Palin will give it to you) and she has had to send Meg Stapleton out to straighten the people out. Meg Stapleton does not owe Walt Monegan an apology. She did not slander Monegan she just told a “political truth.” “Political truths are not lies they are facts rearranged for clarity.

I hope everyone realizes that this is tongue-in-cheek.

I was curious about that Stapleton/Gara interview. Obviously she had her talking points memorized ala Palin but besides completely ignoring the fact that the nonpartisan committee found Palin guilty of an ethics violation, what struck me was her broken record insistence that Monegan was ‘reassigned’ due to budgetary differences with the governor. But then later ‘insubordination’ was also added into the mix because Monegan had the nerve to take a trip to Washington that was approved by the Governor’s office.

So what’s the real story?

I dug back into the archives and found AKM’s blog on the matter which linked directly to Andrew Halcro’s blog posted on 7/17/2008 regarding the Monegan firing.

Walt Monegan got fired for all of the wrong reasons. Walt Monegan got fired because he had the audacity to tell Governor Palin no, when apparently nobody is allowed to say no to Governor Palin.

Monegan said no, he couldn’t cut his budget because his State Troopers were already being stretched to the limit and public safety suffering. He said no, he couldn’t cut his budget because fuel costs for planes, boats and patrol vehicles soaring, while crime in rural Alaska was putting more demands on the Troopers transportation system.

Nothing about insubordination.

But clearly the Palin firing of Monegan is pure Palin. A good man serving Alaska and looking out the best interests of Alaska gets caught in a the personal crosshairs of a Palin-pique attack. I personally think the reason she GIVES for firing Monegan is more outrageous than if she just admitted he wouldn’t fire Wooten!

According to HER she fired him because he had the audicity to ask for more money to fund the underfunded Alaska State Troopers.

This woman is soooo dangerous. Alaskans need to open their eyes and see that her policy of personal issues before the good of the people is hurting Alaska in ways that they may never recover.

Gara could have really nailed Stapleton is he had her explain exactly what those ‘budgetary’ differences were.

I think Palin probably also pissed off the Philly crowd by not wearing a jersey which is tradition for the person dropping the ceremonial puck. Another thing she forced on her child. Plus she was too busy winking and kissing Scotty Gomez and barely even acknowledged the woman who won the hockey mom contest. So much for Sarah relatin’ to the regular folk!

Palin has on a white shirt (trying to look like Obama??) and on the right shoulder area is a white polar bear! It blends in with the white shirt – but it is there.

McCain just mentioned how he will fight for our country from his first day in office until his last. I need to rewind – but I thought I saw a little glint in Scarah’s eye when he mentioned the “last” day! ha ha

I can tell you as a fellow Arizonian that if you drive by the Democratic volunteer offices that people are there from morning until very late at night working. But, if you drive by the Republican offices, the lights are out no later than 5 pm. The Dems are working 7 days a week here in AZ to give the win to Obama in a state that is typically red.

Slightly off-topic, but WHERE is Talis Colberg in all of this? Is he still “on vacation in Kansas”? Seems as though his legal advice to the governor and her cronies has been bad all down the line, aren’t the people of Alaska outraged? In NY the Attorney General represents the people of the State of NY, and does a darn good job (Andrew Cuomo at the moment) — Alaskans are entitled to the same respect and competence! Can’t believe he still HAS a job.

I just had a fantasy about Sarah Palin -no, not that kind of fantasy! Dah.

Here is my fantasy: Sarah Palin appears on Saturday Night Live later this month assuming that she will be in a comedy routine. Now here is the good part. The curtain opens behind her and there are a dozen well informed Mudflatters sitting in chairs. The next 90 minutes is an impromtu town hall meeting with real questions. What could she do other than answer the questions? Run away?

By the way, Michael Carey wrote an interesting commentary published on the 8th of Oct regarding Alaska’s 50th anniversary of statehood. This is the site:

http://www.adn.com/opinion/comment/story/550263.html

It’s an interesting reflection of what the State has become: U.S. Senator on trial, U.S. Representative under investigation, lots of other political corruption around the state, current gov running for U.S. VP, and “and every Alaskan is receiving a $3,269 check from the state just for being an Alaskan”

Not me, though…..as an expat I don’t get to eat at the trough.
I still get to vote, though. And have already sent my absentee ballot state-side. One more vote for Obama/Biden.

Polls are saying that Nevada is a toss-up state. But, either my wife and I are at our regional campaign headquarters every other day in Las Vegas and it is humming. On the weekends, the place is so jammed with volunteers we can’t all fit in the building. The McCain camp can not get volunteers. They only have paid staffers (one of which they let go because of a racist statement she made). A ton of volunteers make the drive from Southern California to Las Vegas every weekend to canvass our neighborhoods. They are AWESOME! And, from what I hear a ton of Nor Cal volunteers travel to Reno every weekend to convass. I don’t see how McCain wins Nevada without troops on the ground. Sure, Nevada has its bigots “that won’t vote for a black man.” But, the overwhelming majority of Nevadans “get it.” They understand we need change. Geez, Las Vegas is the foreclosure capital of the Nation (if not the world). Obama wins Nevada…you can take that to the bank (if your bank still exists).

WAY OT here:

I just received this oh so “wonderful” e-mail from my Aunt.

ONE MINUTE EACH NIGHT….

This is the scariest election we as Christians have ever faced. From the
looks of the polls, the Christians aren’t voting Christian values. We all need
to be on our knees. Do you believe we can take God at His word? Call upon His name, then stand back and watch His wonders to behold. His scripture gives us, as Christians, ownership of this land and the ability to call upon God to heal it. I challenge you to do so. We have never been more desperate than now for God to heal our land.

2 Chronicles 7:14 :

If my people, which are called by my name shall humble themselves, and pray,
and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

During WWII, there was an advisor to Churchill who organized a group of people who dropped what they were doing every night a t a prescribed hour for one minute to collectively pray for the safety of England , its people and peace. This had an amazing effect as bombing stopped.

There is now a group of people organizing the same thing here in America .
The United States of America and our citizens need prayer more than ever!

If you would like to participate: each evening at 9:00 PM Eastern Time, 8:00
PM Central, 7:00 PM Mountain, 6:00 PM Pacific, stop whatever you are doing and spend one minute praying for the safety of the United States, our troops, our citizens, for peace in the world, for wisdom and courage for our leaders, the up-coming election, and that the Bible will remain the basis for the laws
governing our land and that Christianity will grow in the U.S.

If you know anyone who would like to participate, please pass this along.
Someone said if people really understood the full extent of the power we have available through prayer, we might be speechless. Our prayers are the most powerful asset we have.
Thank You

Please pass this onto anyone who you think will want to join us. God Bless
You!!!

So my rant for the day is thus:

Therefore due to the selected scripture I am wicked and sinning for voting for Obama. I am so tired of being called unpatriotic, un-christian, wicked, sinner for believing that Obama is better for this country then the McCalins. Then to top it off they are PRAYING for our country to be led by the Bible as a basis for laws in this country! So which version of the bible do they want this country to be ruled by…the Old Testament which is full of antiquated stories which would only take us back to the Dark Ages or the New Testament? And whatever happened to the separation of state & religion?? Are we going to be led to a religious war in these United States by those who blindly follow “Christian” values and believe that all who don’t follow these said values are morally corrupt wicked sinners?

I am heartsick because my entire family falls into the blindly following the “Christian values.” There is no amount of conversation with them about this that could ever make them change their mind. It’s a very lonely feeling to know that when these troubled times call for the comfort of one’s family that one can’t go to said family for comfort. If my views of this election were known to them I would be disowned. Now how’s that for Christian values.
AARRGGHHHH…I need some talking down today. Thank God..yes I said it..Thank GOD that Mudflats is here to give us a place to come for comfort, for humor, for a respite from the craziness this election has stirred up. Another layer of innocence peeled away today. And I know deep in my heart that I believe in God..but I certainly don’t believe in a God that thinks I’m wicked and a sinner for voting for Obama. Now, I will go light my Obama candle and pray for his safety, his families safety and for Joe Biden and his families safety. AMEN

” stop whatever you are doing and spend one minute praying for the safety of the United States, our troops, our citizens, for peace in the world, for wisdom and courage for our leaders, the up-coming election,”
—————————-
Sounds like they’re praying for an Obama win to me.

I consider myself a Christian (and an Obama supporter) but this country was founded on “In God We Trust”, not in “Christ We Trust).

Many well-meaning Christians argue that the United States was founded by Christian men on Christian principles. Although well-intentioned, such sentiment is unfounded. The men who lead the United States in its revolution against England, who wrote the Declaration of Independence and put together the Constitution were not Christians by any stretch of the imagination.

//www.theology.edu/journal/volume2/ushistor.htm

And on Deists:

Certainly it is generally the case that these people believed in God, but it was not the God of Christianity. Deism began in the eighteenth century and was very popular in America. According to the dictionary, it was “a system of thought advocating natural religion based on human reason rather than revelation.” Jefferson wrote that the religious doctrines of Jesus that he accepted, and which he regarded as consistent with his deistic perspective were three:

1. that there is one God, and he all-perfect:
2. that there is a future state of rewards and punishments
3. that to love God with all thy heart, and thy neighbor as thyself, is the sum of religion.

Hang in there, we’re with you. Landslide to Obama!

if she has a speech on a teleprompter, she’s decent at inciting hatred. But the moment a reporter tries asking the most basic questions, she’s at a complete and total loss.

Palin will stay segregated right up to their loss on Nov 4.. She’ll go home and claim it was a wonderful victory and the libs and media stole the election and she’ll be prepared to serve on jan 20. Then she’ll go crawl into a corner, curl up in a fetal position and cry. Her chance at taking over the world defeated.

In Kristol’s editorial:

“And let McCain go back to what he’s been good at in the past — running as a cheerful, open and accessible candidate. Palin should follow suit. The two of them are attractive and competent politicians. They’re happy warriors and good campaigners. Set them free.

Provide total media accessibility on their campaign planes and buses.”

Hi, Ds55. I wrote a short paragraph on that two days ago as it was debunked on Daily Kos quite well. I will try to find the exact link. Basically, that was not even a real party; it was a fringe hard left element of the Democratic Party, so that’s just something the GOP is trying to smear with. Obama ran unopposed at that time and was endorsed by EVERYONE in Chicago (1996, I believe).

Johnston speaks on Bristol Palin, Obama and baby

an insert from the article:

“They’re not telling me anything right now,” Johnston said as he checked his Blackberry. “It’s pretty chill.”

Not surprisingly, Johnston was a little shocked when he learned about Bristol’s pregnancy, but he says he quickly embraced the prospects of fatherhood. The baby is due Dec. 18. Johnston has dropped out of high school to take a job on the North Slope oil fields as an apprentice electrician.

13 10 2008
sauerkraut aka Palin Pity Party

der Dunkel – you have to understand that certain politicians do not allow ethics, or a code of ethics, to ever stand in their way of political gain; therefore, in her tiny brain, Sarah Palin does not view any determination of an ethical violation as something about which she should be concerned. She only considers ethics a problem when someone, say Ruedrich, engages in it. Then it’s an opportunity to move up the political ladder.

Sound familiar?

Thought I would pass this on from WAPO’s political discussion today …

“Henly, Texas : I’m sure I’m among a tiny number of people who read most of the Palin investigator’s actual report. I was struck not by the criminality (or lack thereof) of her actions, but by what a small person she seems to be. After all, carrying on a grudge solely for the sake of personal retribution for years after a divorce is much more “Jerry Springer” than “Meet the Press.” Doesn’t the report raise more of a character question than a legal question about Palin and her fitness for the second-highest office in the land?

washingtonpost.com: The Trail: Palin Talks to Alaska Reporters about Troopergate (washingtonpost.com, Oct. 12)

Shailagh Murray: But it’s perfect fodder for the HBO series or Coen Bros. movie that will surely arise from all this. “

Hick Town in W PA

and another

Chantilly, Va.: Why on earth would any politician voluntarily show up for a sports event in Philadelphia? I know Gov. Palin is big on hockey, but she picked a city that is infamous for booing Santa Claus and their own superstars (not to mention throwing a few batteries). Wouldn’t Pittsburgh have been a wiser option for wooing Pennsylvanians?

Shailagh Murray: I could not agree more. That one was a total mystery.

13 10 2008

What I’m thinking, HickTown, is that Sarah Palin’s 15 minutes of fame are soon to be over. On November 5, she can go back to being that same small person. Except all those good Alaskans are going to thank her real nice with a vote for whomever runs against her the next time around.

Here are a couple of article about the educational percentages of Democrats verses Republicans.

As evidence, Mr. Wolfe points to a new poll by Washington Post/ABC News that found that white people without a college degree favor John McCain, the Republican candidate, by 17 percentage points, while those with a college degree prefer Barack Obama, the Democratic candidate, by 9 percentage points.

That split could have broad implications for higher-education policy, Mr. Wolfe argues. “A divide such as this suggests that Democrats will continue to expand access to higher education while Republicans will oppose it,” he said.

http://chronicle.com/blogs/election/2468/education-level-linked-to-party-affiliation-poll-suggests

http://www.nytimes.com/2008/10/10/opinion/10brooks.html

Proof of this theory seems to be in the Republicans that accept Sarah Palin as a viable VP candidate and the lies she promotes on the campaign trail as truth.

Cynthia, TX (07:25:48) :

John McCain really stuck his foot into it this time by not vetting her better. The crazies think that her nomination, despite having no commensurate qualifications, is proof that she is anointed by God, rather than proof that McCain is desperate and senile. She appears to be convinced of her own entitlement, which is proof of her narcissism, not her anointing. His sloppiness just fed this ridiculous beast of extremism. She’s already feeling her oats and suggesting that McCain’s strategy is wrong and is going to cost her the VP spot. I keep telling myself that we survived (barely) 8 years of deceit and abuse of power in the current administration, so we could survive a few more if these two get elected. I am not managing to convince myself, though.

Blumenthal’s report on Salon also goes more in-depth on her ties to the secessionist group, AIP. It is truly frightening. They have a declared strategy of getting their people into powerful positions by having them pretend to be typical Dems or Repubs. The fact that they consider Sarah to be “good for their side” should be alarming to everyone, including the folks at the Secret Service and Dept of Homeland Security.

Shooting a Moose apparently has all the challenge of shooting a parked car
so sheep are probably a step up to the Great White Hunter
_____________

With sheep and mountain goats, the killers just have to climb above them and shoot down. It’s one of the lowest froms of ‘hunting’. The goat meat is not edible as it is quite often parasitic, few eat bear. Deer, moose, caribou, elk are eaten. Goat, sheep, bears, cougars, etc are for the trophy killers – those weekend warriors with tiny feet who have to prove to themselves that they are indeed men (they’re not). I’ve always found that those who get thrills out of killing animals (not those who do kill and use the entire animal for food because they can’t afford to buy meat), tend to have low opinions of women as equals. The supposed ‘trophy’ killers are the worst scum of all – usually leaving the headless body of the animal behind – these creeps have a major problem with their adequacy.

Just read a long article about power and politics in Iran and this sounded so much like our Sarah, I just had to quote it.

“Early this year, when Ahmadinejad dismissed reformist politicians as being “ill qualified” to run in the upcoming parliamentary elections, Mohsen Armin, a prominent reformist, shot back: “If ill-qualified people are being advised to desist from registering as candidates so that they don’t inflict a cost on the country, Ahmadinejad is undoubtedly the first person who should be banned from standing in elections.” Pointing to “inflation growing by the day and the people suffering hardship in various ways,” Tajzadeh, the former deputy interior minister, has charged Ahmadinejad with being “incompetent on executive and economic affairs.” Sayyid Mohammad Sadr, deputy foreign minister in Khatami’s government, has written that the defining features of Ahmadinejad’s foreign policy are “his inexpert and delusory outlook,” “a sense of self-adoration,” and “profound ignorance.” Sadr continues: “He doesn’t know that he doesn’t know, so he doesn’t ask anyone. . . . Ahmadinejad needs to travel a bit.” Such attacks had no parallel during Khatami’s presidency. Khatami and his fellow reformists were often accused of being irreligious and anti-Islamic. Ahmadinejad is charged with subscribing to “superstitious religiosity,” magic, and the occult. Some people have even called him crazy. “

I just read the news articles about Levi, and how he dropped out of school. It does trouble me the message that dropping out sends to other children. This McCain-Palin group does not seem to care about education.

They seem to be embracing under-education and muting the importance of literacy (as is demonstrated by the praise for Palin’s folksy lingo).

If a parent does not take steps to teach a child birth control, and goes with philosophy of “just say no”, then a parent must ALSO face the consequences of that policy if the child becomes pregnant and decides to keep the child.

Both Bristol and Levi should be IN school, finishing their education. Their parents should be helping financially, until the child-parents are able to stand on their own, propped up with greater job opportunities gained from education.

Obama’s speech in Toledo was excellent. The first time he mentioned McCain, people booed. Obama made a point of saying no we’re not going to do that, then he said instead we need to vote.

Image if McCain had done that when he first heard that “terrorist” comment. You can watch him react on the video. McCain just does that caught in the headlights reaction which he seems to do when anything is not scripted the way he thinks it should go.

Wonder which “Palin” friend she forced to give Levi a job?

This video brought tears to my eyes – coming from both laughter & pain. Please write to Mr. Gara if you have a few minutes, even if it’s just a line or two! My letter:

Dear Mr. Gara,

This long time Alaskan is very proud of you for your questioning of Meg Stapleton last Friday regarding her horrific lies, and for asking for an apology for her creepy smears of Walt Monegan and Steve Branchflower. I will refrain from stating my opinion of the silly spinner but am happy to say that my opinion of you is fantastic! You showed tenacity, courtesy and unwavering resolve in asking for an apology. The video of your conversation has been a gift of great value to those who are truly searching for the truth in this tangled mess, both in our state and for many in the Lower 48.

I can’t thank you enough for standing up for good Alaskans – so just know that you are my hero, in company with many other Alaskans who are braving this political storm of lies and hatred. Yes, hatred is a strong word in describing our governor’s agenda, but it’s quite clear from the report that she is abusing her power and our trust in a manner none of us quite imagined could be spawned from within our beloved state. Ms. Palin is no longer MY governor in any way shape or form.

You have my deepest respect and best wishes to you from me and my family.

Obama’s speech today was sooooo good. His command of words that inspire is just excellent. I loved it when he said, “when I am President, I will….”

McCain on the other hand today is say again, “My friends, if I am elected President….” That’s a very big if, with a very little chance of coming true.

Did anyone notice that near the end of the second Gara/Stapleton clip there’s a sign on a building behind Stapleton that says GASLIGHT? Very appropriate, since that is what the (Mc)Cain/Palyin’ ticket is trying to do to all of us.

Thanks for posting the video. I shot it and appreciate the extra hits, and love reading the responses to it on here.

For those who wanted to see the rest of the conversation, that was basically all of it. I walked up with the camera on as soon as it started, the only line I missed at the start was Les asking, “So are you going to apologize to Walt Monnegan now?” and at the end, I ran out of tape. He said, “So you’re not going to apologize” or something to that effect and she turned around and started an interview with a print reporter. Les hung around for a few minutes and talked to the media little bit, then went into his office.

So 99.9% of the conversation between the two of them is on there. Thanks again to Mudflats for posting it, and if you ever see anything else you like on either of my youtube pages (AKTruthSquad and Liberalaska , although there’s not much on either right now) please pass them around.

Les Gara and Walt Monegan are fantastic individuals serving their State and their Country well. I wish there were more people with this much integrity in government.

I hope that one of them runs against Palin if (and WHEN) she returns to Alaska.

Stapleton is insufferably arrogant and profoundly dishonest, and Les Gara should be Governor of Alaska.

If Alaska doesn’t want him, he should come to California and we’ll give him a hand getting elected here.

…Well it says he’s dropping out to take an apprenticeship as an electrician, which is a good thing.
—————————————————————
I have to disagree. He needs fo finish school. The apprenticeship would be there waiting for him. What employer in his right mind would think this is a good idea?
===========

I meant having a career goal is a good thing, not the dropping out obviously.

Isn’t a high school diploma required for apprenticeships? Or is Alaska more flexible about on-the-job learning?

As for what employer, obviously someone who owes Sarah/Todd/The Party a big favour, lol.

Bella The Bunny Girl-I went through the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers apprenticeship and worked as an electrician before I got my degree and went into construction management. I had two years of college before I went into the apprenticeship. Now days there is no way you are going to get into that apprenticeship unless you have some college; some even have a 4 year degree before starting. The field is getting too technical for a high-school dropout.

“Why on earth would any politician voluntarily show up for a sports event in Philadelphia?”

Good question! The only reason she was invited was because the team owner is a HUGE contributor to the GOP and actually accompanied Palin around town during her previous visit to Philadelphia. Now why she would actually accept the invitation knowing our infamous reputation for booing, well, I have no idea. Maybe it says a little bit about her – like how could an arena full of hockey people possibly boo the ultimate hockey mom! Golly gee!

Is there some kind of CLASS in dirty politics that these people take that indoctrinates them into the kind of convoluted thinking and illogical nonsense that we are exposed to? Or do they attend brain-washing classes sponsored by the radical right? Zealots! Or maybe they are aliens or walk-ins from a galaxy far far away? Clingons? I am scratching my head….. just thinking…. ?

I yearn for the days when I could listen to my president give a speech(thank you, Bill Clinton). I actually listened to ALL of his State of the Union speeches. For the last 8 years, I have been unable to listen to the sound of the current president’s voice.I swear, I have a petite mal seizure or something when I hear him speak. I am anxiously and eagerly awaiting Barack Obama’s inaugural speech.To have a man of intellect back in the White House is going to be great!!

Why should Levi stay in school? His role models don’t hold education in high esteem. Palin flunked out of at least one college and skipped around to finally finish her degree. McCain graduated near the bottom in military school. Yikes! These are the type of people who yell for more accountablity among teachers who are some of the most highly educated people in the world, force No Child Left Behind on them and then do not give them the funds to achieve it. These are the people who call Obama elitist for graduating from Harvard and Columbia. Obama is the one who is the maverick, not McCain. Obama is the one who has his priorities straight with his own life goals, family, and principles. I wish people could just see things for what they are.

re: Katie
Yes, that’s what I mean about a YouTube election, which some people obviously understand, and some clearly don’t. This follows the progression of newspapers, +radio, +TV, +Web, but the widespread capture of video beyond that done by professionals, and easy access is new.

It puts a new premium on attributes like:

– Thinking out positions beforehand
– Not shooting from hip and having to change too quickly
– Being calm and disciplined
– Not giving glib answers that don’t stand up
– Sometimes saying “I don’t know, but I will get back to you” and then *doing* it.
[Some politicians actually do this, from firsthand experience. Our Rep, Anna Eshoo, did a town meeting where she answered audience questions for 90 minutes. My wife asked one she couldn’t answer, then got email from Anna within a week.]
– Being happy that anything you say publicly and how you say it:
+ might be posted within 10 minutes ..
+ and easily available to everybody for years thereafter

Watching this YouTube clip again, I can see how great Les Gara is for staying calm, to the point, and talking Stapleton down. Not that many people can do this with these Republican robots. We have seen what it is like on FOX news when someone challenges Hannity or O’Reilly. This is no different. McCain’s campaign and Stapleton included could have handled this entire matter with more dignity. I am really glad that the people on the Legislative Council and the other government officials involved took a stand and did not back down. It is so gratifying to see government work for what is RIGHT.

Remember those old NY posters that show NYC in the foreground and nothing else until you see SF waaay off in the distance? Well, here’s Palin’s map:

Wasilla in the foreground with state capitol star, Anchorage a dot on the side–East Wasilla. Juneau–West Wasilla–right next to Russia, labeled Putinville.Shoo.
Canada–East Alaska. Lower 48–South Alaska. Hawaii–Left off the map.
Great Britain–Old Alaska. Australia–Southern Hemisphere Alaska. New Zealand–Southern Hemisphere Alaska Annex.
Africa and Europe–labeled Places with unChristian foreign languages. Useful only because they have airstrips for refueling and I can then claim to have visited these Heathen Lands.
Asia–off with Hawaii somewhere
Antarctica–Alaskan Ice. Note–send polar bears here. Don’t need them up north.

galwhohashadenoughhussienpalin! (08:02:52) :

In the interest of talking you down: the e-mail your aunt received does NOT mention McCain/Palin. Instead, it says that Christians are not voting Christian values. It could certainly be read as an indictment of all those “Christians” who are supporting McCain/Palin. I’d say this is one open to interpretation. And Christians are likely going to pray for whichever candidate they support anyway. I’m pretty sure the Christians on this site are praying for Obama/Biden! Being a non-believer, I don’t think it will make any difference either way, other than perhaps to make the pray-ers feel better about their lives.

In any event, at least it doesn’t smear anyone outright, which is more than can be said for a lot of the e-mails out there.

Probably most would agree that sending Sarah Palin to Philadelphia — a city which booed Santa Claus — to drop the puck at a Philadelphia Flyers hockey game might be risky.

Yep. That idea blew up. Here’s a link to the video. Thankfully there was no snow. Santa appeared at an Eagles game and was greeted by hostile snowballs.

But she’s a hockey mom. What went wrong? Wardrobe malfunction.

She doesn’t even know her own game!

So, here I am, in CA where people say “hockey? Ice hocky? Hockey’s played on a field. But I know better than this. Anyone who actually knows anything AT ALL about hockey knows you don’t wear a Rangers shirt in Philadelphia and think you’ll get out without making a claim against your health insurance (which would probably be denied–for your stupidity)

A Forbes blogger writes that Palin brought some of this on herself. Apparently, a week earlier while in Philadelphia she tried – unsuccessfully – to go out for a jog in a New York Rangers hockey jersey.

No hockey fan in their right mind would show up in Philadelphia wearing a jersey of a New York team, or vice-versa, without expecting some sort of fight to ensue.

Yeah, maybe that was a bad decision to go. At least she didn’t turn the Stanley Cup upside down.”

Shove Maggot “That One” Hussein aka the problem child:

I know it doesn’t mention a candidates name. However, I know my family. They are staunch died through the wool Republicans. My Uncle at lunch recently even made a bigotry veiled statement about Obama. I had to bite my tongue to keep from responding to it. But, I know the source (Aunt/Uncle) from where it came and that was what had me so upset. I am the black sheep of this very conservative Christian family. I don’t believe the way they do and it seems this election just makes it be more in the fore front then usual. It seems I have become much more sensitive to all of this since the Palin nomination.

Just want to say “Thanks” to all who have responded to my rant today. As always I knew I could count on my dear Mudflatters to keep me sane and smiling.

Her and Palin are exactly alike. Creating their own version of the story. The thing they don’t realize is people are much more forgiving if you own your mistakes, not deny your mistakes.

I think most on this blog have an underlying anxiety of the direction of this country. We are all feeling the same thing. We can understand the bigotry and hate that is coming from the other side. We understand that ignorance and intolerance ultimately does not solve problems but only creates division. We get it. We struggle daily wishing November 4 would get here. We live with our anxiety not knowing if the McCain/Palin/Stapletons of this country will continue to have the most powerful position in this country. We are struggling to keep our sanity. We can’t take it anymore. 8 years was enough.

I’m tired of all the negative energy so I take a walk down memory lane when Obama’s words were just a whisper to renew my energy and give me the audacity to hope.

In the first video, she claims the only reason Monegan was fired was budgetary reasons, but it was Palin herself that listed multiple other reasons like insabordination, taking an unapproved trip to DC, and not handling alcohol issues in the state. A

Hello,

Just curious… presuming that election fraud can be minimized, and Obama/Biden win, what is the political future of Sarah Palin up there in Alaska? When is her term up?

I’m presuming that even the local Republican Party will distance themselves as all these “gates” start to come to full fruition. In other words, is she going to write a book and then come on tour down here in the lower 48? We’ve got enough problems of our own that we’re just getting turned around – don’t need, or want, SP around.

Hey Meg’s Great! If I ever commit a crime like abuse of power, I want her out there taking care of the character assassinations and smear campaign to covery my a$$! Facts schmacks! Accountability? Who needs it! Talk fast, repeat yourself over and over, and you can be just like Meg!

But what if she and the so-called Truth Squad had been able to stop the investigation? What about the careers of the men she was smearing? She should be held liable for her part in the cover-up. Defamation of character lawsuits for everybody!

What a snake.

Problem for Meg is that she now may be party to a lawsuit.

PR102: do not get your ass mixed up in a lawsuit involving someone that reporters find interesting, or, an elected official.

(I worked for a high profile state-level political person in CA a while back as campaign press sec and i NEVER let her take care of a parking ticket, having that knack from time to time of thinking of possible future consequences. My client was colorful. If one does not CYAss it will be grass in that cesspool…)

The village voice in Nyc decided to check on the house The Palins built in Wassila and have published this story about Sarah Palin. She might have been better off talking to the media.
http://www.villagevoice.com/2008-10-08/news/the-book-of-sarah/
Cnn did a story on Troopergate too.
Earlier I asked for help with the media being one sided, turns out there are laws already there for it. The Fcc has them and all political parties must get equal time, they must also be true. So on msnbc, Sunday they suddenly found out that Palin was indeed found guilty of abuse of her power. Cnn found out about Palins abuse of power on Monday! I think we should wait until palin goes to work for fox noise before threatening to report them to the FCC.
Since Monday, the bottom appears to have fallen out of the McCain campaign!
Obama leads McCain. 53 to 39 in a national poll.
