Sarah Palin: Fiscal Conservative?

17 10 2008

Here’s another great installment from The Wasilla Project. Remember back when everyone was saying “Sarah Who?” and reading an email that went completely viral from a woman who lives in Wasilla? Her name was Anne Kilkenny, and she is featured prominently in this clip. You’ll also see some of those famous Wasilla landmarks I photographed on my photo safari through Wasilla all those weeks ago. Also featured is the quickly-becoming-infamous sports complex that was built just down the road from the Palin home at the exact same time that Todd was building the Palin house with the help of a couple contractor “buddies”.

Palin’s fiscal conservatism is still being touted by the Republican Party as one of her “selling points”. Hats off to the Wasilla Project for their outstanding work in showing once again that the Empress has no clothes.

And if it took Sarah Palin $50,000 to redecorate the mayor’s office in Wasilla, I shudder to think how much it would take to redo the “undisclosed location” where Cheney’s been hanging out?  I’d have to take that place down to the studs.

$50,000. just doesn’t go as far as it used to, apparently.

I wish I could blow 50K of other people’s money to redecorate… perhaps I need to be a dirty politician, too.

The last “fiscally conservative” republican was Ike.

According to HuPo, Palin’s “handlers” have taken away her TV privileges lest she catch a glimpse of ‘the News’ and become discouraged. Considering that after attending 5 colleges over 6 years (TAKE THAT ELITISTS!) she still believes that Adam&Eve were hanging out with dinosaurs 5000 yrs. ago, I think that they are underestimating her “resoluteness”…..no?

Thanks, AKM. MJC posted this on the overnight thread.

In all fairness, SWWNBN would not be in a position of power should– God forbid–the world fall apart and McC were to be elected. Presidents and Vice Presidents do not GENERALLY set budgets (whew!).

But the fact remains clear: anyone who lacks a basic understanding of fiscal matters, ethical matters and legal matters has not place in government.

Wasilla should have never been placed in a position of having to wage a lawsuit in order to get title to the Ice rink land. That was simply negligence or outright disregard for law. Either way, it renders Sarah Palin unfit for office.

She was bragging in a speech she made earlier today (heard on XM POTUS) that she and John will balance the federal budget just like families have to balance theirs and just like governors and mayors have to be fiscally responsible…and that as mayor blah, blah, blah and as governor she got out that red veto pen…luckliy for me my XM reception faded out for a bit after that. It was all I could staqnd anyway. I do remember she called Wasilla a bustling, lively little town or something like that.

I still don’t understand how she has not been called out on this wasteful spending, they parade her around as standing up to this and it appears that she is guiltier than most??
Democrats need to stand up to the Religious Right Wing Nuts like her, look what happened in the Last 2 Elections, have they not learned anything??
Dems are Not PRO-Abortion
God will ultimately judge those who get abortions, it is not for the Republicans to Judge, and by the way how will John and Cindy be Judged for their affair, isn’t “Thou shall not CHEAT on and Then Abandon Your Wife” one of The 10 Commandments ??
Why is this Not A Character Judgment??, Tells a little more about the character than serving on a School board with Ayers.

Just a thought

Guess this means about half the population of Alaska is “un-patriotic” ( Unless Sarah considers Anchorage a “small town”). You can’t make this stuff up.

Here’s another nail in Plumber Joe’s coffin. Please click the link; there is more.

Eric Zorn

If `Joe the Plumber’ is like my plumber, he can go pound sand

There’s a great screenplay idea behind the ludicrously over-the-top presence of “Joe the Plumber” in last night’s debate:

Blue collar guy chats up a presidential candidate on the stump, finds himself referred to numerous times in the subsequent debate and becomes a national insta-celebrity for his rough-hewn, ornery yet charming nature and overall what-the-hell attitude.

He supports the candidate trailing badly in the polls, so that candidate, to inject life into his sagging campaign, persuades his running mate to step down “to spend more time with her family.” Replaces her with Joe the Plumber.

A charmed and ultimately frivolous nation comes around, elects this team, and Joe goes to Washington. The president-elect hits his head getting out of the limo on inauguration day and is incapacitated. Much hilarity and many plumbing jokes ensue. Finally, he detects a suspicious trickle from a faucet during a UN visit and, using his ever-handy tools, foils a plumbing based-plot to take over the world…

Whoa…If you are right about that, that could become more “fundie fraud ammo.” Well, let’s face it: fundie fraud is what got Palin into the ticket into the first place. If she hadn’t been a fundie, she wouldn’t be on the GOP ticket. So they have lied about her governing record, the AIP ties, Wooten, etc., to cover up.

Why does everyone keep complaining that the mainstream media is ignoring all the good stuff about John/Palin/Cindy/Todd/Joe, at al?

The mainstream media is in the business of selling ad space, by attracting viewers, by creating a buzz.

Airing stories that would cut off the knees of a trailing candidate would, effectively, turn the campaign into a one horse race; which is boring.

Therefore they will do what they can to push the narrative of an exciting contest because that is what they sell; that is their product.

I would think information about Palin would be good for ratings – since she is kept away from them, folks would be eager to know

each day that goes by I get more and more worried that she could some how end up in the white house

Did you notice Palin’s stupid remark today – she loves visiting the Pro-America parts of our country – (when they tired to spin it, she said the small towns and pockets of what I call the real America) — so like the rest of us are un-American ???

So the sports complex cost $50 million…..seems like a lot of money for a small town of 10,000 or so people (less I understand when Palin was mayor). So, we take, say, 1% of this amount and build a home for Palin, you end up with a $500,000 house and no one is the wiser. Diverting 1% of the costs on a project of this size is so easy anyone could do it. Just process a few change orders or inflate the original bid a little teensy bit and you have it. Heck, the GC could cover 1% as an overhead expense: the cost of doing business in Wasilla!

A Nana from Alaska

From the “Show Me” state:
Sunday editorial: Barack Obama for president

By: Editorial Board
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch
Nine Days before the Feb. 5 presidential primaries in Missouri and Illinois, this
editorial page endorsed Barack Obama and John McCain in their respective races…

Over the past nine months, Mr. Obama, the junior senator from Illinois, has emerged as the only truly transformative candidate in the race. In the crucible that is a presidential campaign, his intellect, his temperament and equanimity under pressure consistently have been impressive. He has surrounded himself with smart, capable advisers who have helped him refine thorough, nuanced policy positions.

In a word, Mr. Obama has been presidential.

Meanwhile, Mr. McCain, the senior senator from Arizona, became the incredible shrinking man. He shrank from his principled stands in favor of a humane immigration policy. He shrank from his universal condemnation of torture and his condemnation of the politics of smear.

He even shrank from his own campaign slogan, “Country First,” by selecting the least qualified running mate since the Swedenborgian shipbuilder Arthur Sewall ran as William Jennings Bryan’s No. 2 in 1896….

Very early on, Mr. Obama reached out to his impressive corps of economic advisers and developed a comprehensive set of recommendations for addressing the problems. He set them forth calmly and explained them carefully….

We have little doubt that Mr. Obama’s appointees would bring a level of competence, compassion and intellectual achievement to the executive branch that hasn’t been seen since the New Frontier. He has energized a new generation of Americans who would put the concept of service back in “public service.

Consider that while Mr. McCain selected as his running mate Gov. Sarah Palin of Alaska, a callow and shrill partisan, Mr. Obama selected Sen. Joe Biden of Delaware. Mr. Biden’s 35-year Senate career has given him encyclopedic expertise on legislative and judicial issues, as well as foreign affairs.

The idea that 3,000 bright, dedicated and accomplished Americans would be joining the Obama administration to serve the public — as opposed to padding their resumÈs or shilling for the corporate interests they’re sworn to oversee — is reassuring. That they would be serving a president who actually would listen to them is staggering.

And the fact that Mr. Obama can explain his thoughts and policies in language that can instruct and inspire is exciting. Eloquence isn’t everything in a president, but it is not nothing, either…

He sees the complicated world as it is today, not as a binary division between us and them, but as a kaleidoscope of shifting alliances and interests. As he often notes, he is the son of a Kenyan father and a mother from Kansas, an internationalist who yet acknowledges that America is the only nation in the world in which someone of his distinctly modest background could rise as far as his talent, intellect and hard work would take him.

Given the damage that has been done to America’s moral standing in the world in the last eight years — by a preemptory war, a unilateralist foreign policy and by policies that have treated both the Geneva Conventions and our own Bill of Rights as optional — Mr. Obama’s election would help America reclaim the moral high ground.

It also must be said that Mr. Obama is right on the issues. He was right on the war in Iraq. He is right that all Americans deserve access to health care and right in his pragmatic approach to meeting that goal. He is right on tax policy, infrastructure investment, energy policy and environmental issues. He is right on American ideals.

He was right when he said in his remarkable speech in March in Philadelphia that “In the end, then, what is called for is nothing more, and nothing less, than what all the world’s great religions demand: that we do unto others as we would have them do unto us. Let us be our brother’s keeper, Scripture tells us. Let us be our sister’s keeper. Let us find that common stake we all have in one another, and let our politics reflect that spirit as well.”…

Finally, only at this late point do we note that Barack Obama is an African-American. Because of who he is and how he has run his campaign, that fact has become almost incidental to most Americans. Instead, his countrymen are weighing his talents, his values and his beliefs, judging him not by the color of his skin, but the content of his character.

That says something profound and good — about him as a candidate and about us as a nation.

David Shuster just did a good job of hammering an ignorant McCain spokeswoman on the Ayers-Annenberg-McCain connection.
And can you believe that McCain has the nerve to blame Obama for the media attention that Joe the (fake) plumber is receiving? His campaign is truly operating in some alternate universe.

From the “Show Me” state:
Sunday editorial: Barack Obama for president

By: Editorial Board

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch

…Over the past nine months, Mr. Obama, the junior senator from Illinois, has emerged as the only truly transformative candidate in the race. In the crucible that is a presidential campaign, his intellect, his temperament and equanimity under pressure consistently have been impressive. He has surrounded himself with smart, capable advisers who have helped him refine thorough, nuanced policy positions.

In a word, Mr. Obama has been presidential.

Meanwhile, Mr. McCain, the senior senator from Arizona, became the incredible shrinking man. He shrank from his principled stands in favor of a humane immigration policy. He shrank from his universal condemnation of torture and his condemnation of the politics of smear.

He even shrank from his own campaign slogan, “Country First,” by selecting the least qualified running mate since the Swedenborgian shipbuilder Arthur Sewall ran as William Jennings Bryan’s No. 2 in 1896….

Very early on, Mr. Obama reached out to his impressive corps of economic advisers and developed a comprehensive set of recommendations for addressing the problems. He set them forth calmly and explained them carefully…

We have little doubt that Mr. Obama’s appointees would bring a level of competence, compassion and intellectual achievement to the executive branch that hasn’t been seen since the New Frontier. He has energized a new generation of Americans who would put the concept of service back in “public service.”

Consider that while Mr. McCain selected as his running mate Gov. Sarah Palin of Alaska, a callow and shrill partisan, Mr. Obama selected Sen. Joe Biden of Delaware. Mr. Biden’s 35-year Senate career has given him encyclopedic expertise on legislative and judicial issues, as well as foreign affairs…

What is making you worry? There is very little chance that Obama won’t win. I personally don’t even think they will try to steal it because the numbers are just too overwhelming. They might try to steal a couple of senate seats, though, so we need to pay close attention there.

I just ordered some buttons, magnets and a black Obama/Biden sweatshirt (they have my size now!) from the Barack Obama online store. I can’t wait to get them! I will be proud to sport them in style.

@katiebegood, I agree that the internet has been transformative for this election, in a large part because it has really gotten the younger voters excited. I was out a couple nights ago, and I heard a bunch of high school kids talking about Barack Obama. I couldn’t hear what they were saying, but the fact that they were talking about him was very encouraging to me.

I think print/television media better be careful because they are pounding themselves into oblivion. I mean, why should I turn on network news or read a paper when I can get updated news by the second online? In fact, I can find ten different angles of the same story so I can make a more informed decision as to the truthfulness of a news item (as oppose to the truthiness of it). I do think there is a place for traditional media, but they need to update themselves if they want to not be considered marginal at best.

@Lady Rose and katiebegood, I worry, too. I don’t trust poll numbers, and I don’t trust that this won’t collapse somehow. Remember, Gore had a double-digit lead in October, and look what happened to him. I don’t think we can underestimate how far some Republicans (Rove, et. al), will go to make sure “That One” doesn’t become President. We need to be vigilant, and we each need to do what we can to ensure that Obama makes it to the White House.

I followed a 20something young lady around the grocery store the other day and she was talking about Obama, on her cellphone, with someone who obviously was not a fan. Boy, she sure did a good job of convincing the person on the other end of the conversation that they would be stupid if they didn’t vote for Obama. She had all her facts straight and wasn’t in the least shy about setting the other person straight when she heard an untruth. I ended up in tapping her on the shoulder and giving her a “thumbs up”. She grinned at me and went on with her conversation.

Hmmmmm

Costs.

My understanding is that the Sportsplex cost $15 mil. I work for a park agency and this is not out of line. We want to bulid an indoor track and sportsplex and the estimates range from $20 to $40 mill. We don’t have the money to pay for it and our County is over 1 million people. I sure as heck don’t know how Wsilla is paying for that thing.

$50k for the office remodel sounds high, but gov. projects have an unfortunate habit of costing too much. Again a small town like Wasilla should have been able to do something for less.

In all fairness, SWWNBN would not be in a position of power should– God forbid–the world fall apart and McC were to be elected. Presidents and Vice Presidents do not GENERALLY set budgets (whew!).

But the fact remains clear: anyone who lacks a basic understanding of fiscal matters, ethical matters and legal matters has not place in government.

hope I did the html right.

My fave quote from Ms. SWWNBN came from when she was called on the carpet for spending that $50,000 WITHOUT PERMISSION and from funds NOT earmarked for that purpose. She said …

I’m the mayor. I can do whatever I want until the courts tell me otherwise.

Michelle Bachmann is Minnesota’s answer to SP (our own rabid ignoramus cross to bear). How the 6th district (not mine) could have elected her is way beyond my ken. She’s the one who planted the big kiss on GW after the state of the union and has been nothing but an embarrassment to good Minnesotans since she was elected. The good news is, the RNC has abandoned all its other races in the state to bail out her sinking boat — which until recently they believed was waterproof. The better news is, in some polls, her opponent has tied and is pulling ahead. If you have any spare change… send it to Elwyn Tinklenberg, MN congressional district 6.
Yuk she is as nausea producing as SP. I need to go throw up now…

Why do they keep beating the Ayers thing. Obama made it very clear about his position. Also, McCain being connected to the Keating 5. That is alot worse. I think the media should harp on that for awhile and also the ties with McCain and G. Gordon Liddy. Also, McCain spoke and has had a really big involvement with ACORN. Then there is Sarah Palin, who does not even know what the Hell she is talking about. Let alone being able to think for herself. I’m sorry Alaska, I know you people have to be really great. I really feel for you having her as your governor. I just wish the news media would develop some Balls and let Sarah Palin and John McCain know when they are out and out lying instead of letting them get by with it.

Chris Mathews is the first person that I’ve heard that stood up to the statement about Ayers saying he wished he had bombed more. That’s not what he said and he himself blogged about the statement being misrepresented. He wished they had done more to end the war.
I’m also so glad that Chris and Katrina finally called Pat Buchanan on equating the KKK and the Weathermen. It’s easy to see where all this crap started. It was during Nixon when Pat and his buddies were stirring up the politics of hate and division. He’s still stuck back in that time.

If we can jump forward to Nov 4.. I think when MSNBC, who else?? announces Barack Hussein Obama will be the next president of the United States, i think we should all have a bottle of champagne and open it at the same time.

And for the Alaskans, why not have a good riddance party in from of the Govenors house. I just think this crap will end and every day, McAsshole manages to stoop lower and lower..

I think when Obama has the chance, he shoulda stuck a shiv into McGrumpy at that dinner last night.. He can say he was just returning the favor for all the times McGrumpy’s stabbed him in the back.. Seems fair..

Ripley AKA Copper Hussein Catfish P.

coupla things:

Let’sGetReal for “That One” (12:29:26) : I saw how Obama mentioned Annenberg in his debate. That was clearly referenced so that people would do his work by getting the McLiar/Annenberg connection in the MSM. He’s good like that, going through the back door.

Powell: If he endorses Obama, game over. If he endorses McCancer, he’ll simply be referred to as a Republican endorsing his party. No harm, no foul.

Michelle Bachmann: Hateful. However, recall that the general public is getting tired of negative attacks on Obama. The more that negative shit hits the fan, the more people turn away. I thought the worst thing that happened within the past 24 hours was that people saw McYellow laughing, being flip and having a good time with Obama…. that is far more dangerous to the cause, if you ask me. Not that you did…but his poll numbers went up a little with that display of humanness. Ick.

Otherwise: don’t throw your tv. You need to save that money to donate to Obama/Biden! I like to think of Joe as “Joe the Biden”.

Trini-I just put my work down and started reading the comments. Thanks for the link about the reporter getting kicked at a GOP rally. What the McCain/Palin group is doing is extremely dangerous. Anyone that has studied the mentality of a mob knows that when a group is emotionally charged up, as at a political rally, one spark can ignite a forest fire in seconds and many people can get hurt. I am not a lawyer but I imagine that the McCain/Palin group might be liable for damages if someone was hurt bad enough or if someone wanted to press it. Even the GOP Party might be liable to some extent. McCain wouldn’t stand even a remote chance of being elected if 20 or 30 innocent people were hurt or killed in a riot.

@Ripley—

I agree that Ms. Ghengis Kahn Bachmann’s negativity is falling largely on deaf ears. The local channels aired a debate last night between her repugnance and Elwyn Tinklenberg. She was hideous. The upside is…everyone they interviewed afterwards thought so. Tinklenberg was the clear winner.

@nebraska native—So proud of MN and all you are doing! (Then there’s Bachman– what the hell happened there? That whole thing went right under my radar.)

I think a lot has flown by all of us “under the radar” in the last 8 years. but no more. and never again. mudpuppies across the country (real ones and those we don’t know yet) are wide awake now. Obama’s done that. And the repugs haven’t even seen the tip of this iceberg.

The subjects she covered, and the tone she used have outraged people from all across the country.
I won’t tell you what she said, I want you to see for yourself. This is what we are up against. It’s sad when our politics has come to this.

THIS ARTICLE FROM THE COURIER JOURNAL IN LOUISVILLE TODAY ~

Voters may sport campaign gear at polls

By Sheldon S. Shafer
sshafer@courier-journal.com

Don’t worry, it’s OK to wear your Obama T-shirt or McCain button when you cast your ballot on Election Day.

That’s the message from Kentucky election officials, who fear that voters wearing campaign paraphernalia might wrongly be turned away.

The Kentucky Board of Elections has sent a memo to all county boards of election and county attorneys’ offices reminding officials that people must be allowed to vote — even if they show up at the polls wearing a T-shirt, button or hat that promotes a candidate.

State board members have “received reports that there are e-mails circulating stating that voters wearing T-shirts, lapel pins, or hats, etc., with campaign materials will be removed from the polling place before being allowed to cast a ballot,” according to a September memo from Sarah Ball Johnson, executive director of the state election board.

Kentucky law prohibits electioneering within 300 feet of a building where people are voting on Election Day. That includes: “the displaying of signs, the distribution of any campaign literature, cards or handbills, the soliciting of signatures to any petition or the solicitation of votes.”

But a 1992 attorney general’s opinion said the First Amendment’s right to freedom of speech allows voters to wear campaign slogans when they vote.

Raoul Cunningham, president of the Louisville NAACP chapter, said he was glad that state election officials clarified the issue. NAACP officials saw many e-mails that wrongly stated that voters could be turned away if they wore T-shirts or buttons promoting a candidate.

“There was a lot of confusion” about what one could wear to vote, Cunningham said, adding that no federal law covers the issue. “We got plenty of e-mails” with wrong information, he said.

Hey, Mudpuppies, here’s somebody’s comment on Huffpo about Michelle Bachman. She really is a hateful person. Christian, my a$$!
——-
How did McCain find Palin? Answer: Michelle Bachmann!

SOURCE: Michelle Bachmann, was a fish cleaner at her uncle’s resort in Alaska while being financially independent at age 13. She and her husband oppose the U.S. Supreme Court ruling in Roe v. Wade as does Palin. She is an extremist in demonstrating against abortion rights! A view also held by Palin. She attended a now defunct law school arm of the “right-wing Oral Roberts University,” who define themselves as “founded in the fires of evangelism and upon the unchanging precepts of the Bible.”

She was involved with a charter school and “conflicts arose when many parents and the school district questioned if money from public tax dollars was going towards injecting Christianity into the curriculum.” Parents charged Bachmann with trying to set up classes on Creationism and advocating “something called ’12 Christian principles’ be taught, very much like the 10 Commandments.” All using Public Funds. Bachmann and the board of directors also refused to allow the in-school screening of the Disney film Aladdin, feeling that it endorsed magic/witchcraft and promoted paganism. Her orientation toward education was “criticized for focusing on attitudes, values and beliefs of students, rather than on transmitting knowledge” and children could graduate from high schools with 6th grade knowledge in Math and Science.

Bachmann headed a drive to have intelligent design be given equal time with evolution in Science classes. It seems clear she does not see that “CHURCH and STATE” need to have separation and has fought for funding of schools with STRONG RELIGIOUS TEACHINGS such as “Creationism”. She calls it as many right-wing groups do “Intelligent Design” but a federal court ruled that “Intelligent Design” is “a religious view, a mere re-labeling of creationism, and not a scientific theory” and was therefore unsuitable for inclusion in a public school science curriculum.

Palin fit perfectly into Bachmann”s Philosophy and being a underling of McCain was instrumental in the Pick of Palin.

I’m still thinking about the $50K for re-decorating the office. Isn’t her office in that tiny building that used to be something else?
There’s no way it cost $50K for flocked wallpaper and some furniture.
I’m thinking she inflated the price to cover some building materials for the new house.
Oddly, I came across something that I think runs in the lines of creative accounting:
Contributions from Sarah Palin TO Sarah Palin (???) and they’re “Non-Monetary?”

https://webapp.state.ak.us/apoc/contributions.jsp?name=PALIN%2C+SARAH&pagesize=20

Does anyone know an explanation for this?
How does one give oneself approx $1500 non-monetary?

Then, there’s this other odd thing,..a $35k refund to Sarah from the Palin/Parnell campaign?

And yet I still talk to people who are so “afraid” to vote for Obama because they are worried he is going to raise their taxes. They would rather believe McCain and especially Palin tell them lies to their face, than take a risk to change. I could never figure it out. But, then I think it IS fear. So many people will keep the status quo and not budge an inch because it is their comfort level. This is translated into their daily lives. It is who they are. It is too scarey to take a chance on something new eventhough they do not like what they are living. It is like being in a bad marriage with no guts to get out.

Even Joe Biden has shown beautiful restraint with the crapolla coming out of McCain/Palin camp EXCEPT when Obama is unjustly attacked, then Joe turns into his well-known role as an effective scrapper. He definitely has Barack’s back, and he seems to totally enjoys it and lights on fire.

So most of us are deep-sixing anger (we lose focus) and responding to evil with action positive to Obama/Biden or by contributions. MSM picks up on amount of donations coming from the American People. What better slam to opponents than to continue turning this country Blue with panache?

I sent my first donation to OBama August 29 after McLame annouced Falin as his running mate. I made my second donation, I think mid September and I received my magnetic Obama/Biden sign and my tshirt this week. I donated again today, hoping to get my second tshirt for my husband prior to election day.

Today was a great day. My husband and I voted early today, and in our small town we had to wait in line. One of our republican friends told us as we came out from voting that she would be voting with us this year. We went for lunch and our waitress told us that she would be voting for OBama as well. We happen to live in the most red part of Tennessee, so I hope this is an omen of better things to come.

As soon as I get through with this post, I will be going to the Tinklenberg site to make a donation. I truly despise Michell, the idiot, Bachmann. Maybe I will go throw up first.

Mudpuppies: I just dontated to Tinklenberg’s campaign…”up your’s Bachmann!” and I feel like I responed for Obama/Biden.

Remember, the day after Palin’s RNC horror show, Obama/Biden campaign brought in over $10 million. I can contribute, but if you are unable, writing to media and others, clogging robocalls lines, etc. like others on this blog suggest, is excellent grassroots action!

I just visited the website for the wasilla project at http://wasillaproject.typepad.com/
Wow. These people have done a tremendous job and, I’m sure, at great risk to their own reputations in such a small town. There is a donate button on the left. I gave them what little I could and I hope all of us here can do a little something to help them get this message out. If we all do, then it will really add up. Thank you, Wasillaproject. Thank you very much.

The reason Cindys tax return doesn’t show more is because they have one of those offshore mailbox address that Obama talks about. one house has either 1600 or 16,000 companys to the same house!

“Deb (16:29:05) :
well…only thing I’ve seen so far about cindy’s tax return is that she declared $4.2 million”

See Deb it’s under $5 million – so she’s really middle class, at least according to her husband.

I just donated to Tinklenberg’s campaign. Here’s his official website: http://www.tinklenberg08.com/. Huffpost bloggers are saying that he’s raised $17,000 in the last three hours since Bachmann opened her mouth on Hardball.

Or better yet start their own blog to rant on and see how many people are interested in what they are giving away.

Way to go mudpuppies (and mudpuppy wannabees)! In the 3 hours since Ms Bachmann gave her Joe McCarthy speech on MNSBC, Elwyn Tinklenberg (her opponent) has received $30,000.00 in contributions from outraged Americans. Hoo hoo!!!

All this birthday talk. Funny, mine is a week before the election. It will be the 14th annual 30th birthday. A few weeks ago I decided to take a leap of faith and postpone my birthday to November 4th. Lana I hope you don’t mind sharing.
I am climbing up the mountain and leaning into the void…I have faith my country will catch me.

I could redecorate my entire house for $50k, and make it look real nice. What on earth did she buy that would cost that much? To me “office” implies ONE room.

Good video from the Wasilla Project. The best thing SP has done is to make folks very aware of her lousy job as Mayor, thanks to the good folks who put the video together.

$50,000 to decorate an office? (spits out coffee) what”s it got in it – a Viking Range?

Calikid-I can see it now if they had invited Palin:

McCain-”This Iraq thing is going good; we’re winning.

Obama-”Senator McCain, that’s not the way I see it. We are not winning.”

Palin-”Nuke them godless Arabs. Drop nukes on them right now.”

McCain-”Sarah, our troops are there. We would kill our own troops.”

Palin-”Tell them to stand to the side for a few minutes.”

McCain-”Senator Obama you were saying…”

Palin-Wait a minute! How come First Dude can’t come in. He knows all about nukes. He sees those Russkie bombers flying over our house every day.”

McCain-”Sarah Todd’s membership in the AIP makes him a security risk. He can’t come into the White House.”

Plain-”Security my foot! I’m going to be President…oohs, I mean Vice-President…I can do what I want.”

McCain-”What were we talking about?”

Palin-Why are you doing all of the talking. I thought that was what the VP did…talk. If I can’t talk what am I supposed to do all day?”

OMG, that is HILARIOUS!!!! Priceless, on-the-dot, love it!!

Sorry, Off Subject

McCain/Palin are a disgrace and about as Un-American as I have ever seen they are Running a Sickening Campaign and are Dividing this Great Land with their hints at Racism and should both lose their ability to hold a Government office.

I used to Respect the “OLD” John McCain, He has Turned into Smegal in his quest for Ultimate Power, May God Forgive Him.

From Factcheck.org

“Pal Around”

The first to begin using the new line of attack against Obama was McCain’s running mate, Gov. Sarah Palin, after a lengthy article appeared Oct. 3 in the New York Times about Obama and Ayers:

Palin, Oct. 5: Our opponents see America as imperfect enough to pal around with terrorists who would bomb their own country.

She’s repeated the charge again and again at different campaign stops since then, citing the Times. What the Times article actually says, however, is this: “[T]he two men do not appear to have been close. Nor has Mr. Obama ever expressed sympathy for the radical views and actions of Mr. Ayers.” The Times says its review of documents and interviews with key players “suggest” that Obama “has played down his contacts with Ayers,” but describes their paths as having crossed “sporadically” since their first meeting in 1995.

Obama addressed Palin’s claim on Oct. 8, when questioned by ABC News’ Charlie Gibson:

Obama, Oct. 8: This is a guy who engaged in some despicable acts 40 years ago when I was eight years old. By the time I met him, 10 or 15 years ago, he was a college professor of education at the University of Illinois. … And the notion that somehow he has been involved in my campaign, that he is an adviser of mine, that … I’ve ‘palled around with a terrorist’, all these statements are made simply to try to score cheap political points.

come on, she lowered her sallary from $58,000 to $54,000… that’s 6.89% of the initial sallary… not even 7%… and she still afforded a full-option toyota prius per month…

We need to write to congress and DEMAND the fairness doctrin be brought back in. This is crucial so the likes of hate tv and radio will not divide us further. Americans are getting educated with Rush L. as their teacher, pretty scary.
This doctrine grew out of concern that because of the large number of applications for radio station being submitted and the limited number of frequencies available, broadcasters should make sure they did not use their stations simply as advocates with a singular perspective. Rather, they must allow all points of view. That requirement was to be enforced by FCC mandate
For citizens who value media democracy and the public interest, broadcast regulation of our publicly owned airwaves has reached a low-water mark. In his new book, Crimes Against Nature, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. probes the failure of broadcasters to cover the environment, writing, “The FCC’s pro-industry, anti-regulatory philosophy has effectively ended the right of access to broadcast television by any but the moneyed interests.”

Cindy McCain released her tax returns for 2006 & 2007. She made a little over 4 million in 2007. That is down from her 6 million in 2006. Now I understand why McCain wants to lower the taxes on the rich.

Ira2-I’m glad you like my little attempt at humor.

Why is the MSM not discussing these issues? For those who support Palin, the cry is that she is just like us, yet all that I read implies she is not like the average middle class person at all. Anyway great blog!

A bit OT but I love this video! It showed me what I needed to see..AND for good measure, a VERY good shot of the Wasilla Sports complex!

Of all the dumb stuff Sarah Palin may or may have done or not done, this is the one that is potentially the most damaging and
coul lead to an actual criminal charge.
Look at the windows of the Palin house and the sports complex:

At approx 2:41 into the video there is a great shot of the front of the complex.
Compare the windows there to pics of the house..

More windows pics from the complex:



VERY similar. the trim is a bit different but I bet the sizes match exactly!
Feel free to mix and match!
Someone PLEASE help connect the dots on this.
It is very Ted Stevens-esque, the timeline is perfect and it smells like a rotten salmon.
No offense to the salmon.
