Palin’s “Travelgate” Swings Open – Let the Fallout Begin!

29 10 2008

You know at the DMV, or the deli, when you have to pull one of those little ticket things off the roll, so you know where you are in line? They need to install one of those at the Department of Law in Alaska.

There is so much we never knew about our Governor. Nothing like being under the national magnifying glass, accompanied by a mass influx of some of the best investigative journalists in the world, to properly vet a candidate.

It feels like we were just hanging out at home, minding our business, and all of a sudden several hundred FBI agents descended on our house with fine-toothed combs, and electronic devices, and fingerprint gathering tools. We find out we may have been the victim of a crime and we didn’t even know it! Go figure.

Well, those metaphorical FBI agents (aka journalists) did a really good job. They even looked under the bed, and in the back of the sock drawer. They looked in the freezer, and they found that secret cubbyhole under the floorboards. They may not have found everything, but they sure made us think about all those other places we might look, now that we know.

Now that all these little Sarah Palin scandals have been excavated by the national press, there they lie. Right there on our dining room table with little color-coded evidence tags. They just sit, waiting for someone to come along, pick one up, examine it and say, “Heeeey. I didn’t vote for this!”

We were all promised “open, honest and transparent” government from Sarah Palin, and we find, to our amazement that what we actually got was a big steaming pile of just the opposite. Time to start taking numbers.

The first one to pull his ticket off the roll is Frank Gwartney, a retired lineman who lives in here in Anchorage. Let’s call him “Frank the Retired Lineman”. It makes him sound like one of those people Palin says she’s accountable to. He is “tired of the hypocrisy that exists in Government,” and thinks, “people need to know the truth.” This reminds us of that famous pre-VP quote that defined Sarah Palin’s rise to Governorship, “Hold me accountable.” Apparently, Frank was listening.

The complaint against Governor Palin, alleges Misuse of Official Position: “Gov. Palin attempted to and in fact did use her official position for personal gain by securing unwarranted benefits for her daughters…” All the allegations contained in the complaint are related to state reimbursed travel.

In Alaska, ethics complaints filed against the Governor are confidential. “We can neither confirm nor refute that a complaint has been filed against Governor Sarah Palin. Any complaint remains confidential unless the person being charged waives confidentiality or if the complaint progresses to the state of probable cause,” Assistant District Attorney, Dave Jones told CBS News.

Bristol, Piper and Willow, Palin’s daughters, accrued $32,629 in travel expenses while Palin’s husband Todd raked up $22,174 – all billed to the state for a total of $54,803.00.

“The Governor’s office has expended $54,803.00 in Alaska state dollars for family travel since December 2006,” according to the Governor’s Administrative Services Director, Linda Perez. “The documentation related to family travel has changed and you have to keep in mind that the governor and her family are very popular,” added Perez.

Sharon Leighow, Deputy Communications Director, said “Governor Palin followed state policy allowing governors to charge for their children’s travel and there’s also the expectation that the first family participate in community activities across the state.”

We all know the drill. Here’s what happens next. Attorney General Talis Colberg will refer the complaint to…..The Personnel Board. Those guys are busy these days! Still wrestling with the second incarnation of the Troopergate investigation, they now have another item on their expanding “To Do” list. Then the board decides if the conduct would violate the ethics ace if it were found to be true. If it would, then they go through the process of hiring an independent investigator. Much happens out of the spotlight, but after interviews, and evidence gathering, and when the board reaches a decision, they make recommendations to impose penalties, and/or disciplinary action. The process may take several weeks, or several months.

Governor Palin would be advised to get used to this. Grassroots discontent can be a formidable thing. You never know who will show up to pull the next ticket. Frank Gwartney? Who’s that guy?  The answer is:  The first guy in line.

Anyone worried that Alaska political junkies will have nothing to talk about after this election can rest easy.

Sarah Palin is now saying that she will absolutely continue her political career as a national figure should McCain lose. She announced her plans to run for president in 2012 … and the current presidential campaign is not even over yet.

This lady is truly whacked! What does she think is going to happen over the next 4 years?

Does she think she can do more next time to suppress the votes of women and minority groups because we know all the “socialist,” “marxist,” “traitor,” “terrorist” accusations did not work.

Or, does she think she will actually grow a brain over the next 4 years and be able to rise above the mudslinging and actually be able to address policy issues?

Or, does she think with a little prayer all the liberals can be de-witched and become born-again Republicans?

I was just watching CNN when they told about her plans via an interview with ABC. Wolf asked the CNN reporter traveling with McCain camp how they felt and she said she called a senior advisor and read Palin’s exact quote and the result was dead silence and then a loud whoosh sound…..WOW!

In reviewing the Palins tax returns that were disclosed there was a business deduction for the snowmobile racing business, which includes the Iron Dog race. I recall one of the questionable perdiem vouchers was for the Gov. and family to be at the race in an official capacity. Based on this I would venture to guess the same expense is deducted on their tax return, which is Tax Fraud, as well as filing a false public voucher, you can’t have it both ways.
This angle shuld be looked at in the investigation.

Try this:

“I don’t believe she’s qualified. The first judgment a potential President makes is who their
running mate is – and I don’t think John made a very good selection. To try to make the excuse
that she looks out her window and sees Russia – and that she’s commander of the Alaska National

If Palin wants to ‘lead’ the Republican Party, she is going to have to stay in the spotlight. I think she is going to get her wish. Tom Delay was on Hardball today, also trying to remain in the spotlight. Delay might want to caution Palin about having her wishes fulfilled.

Here’s what she said about her past in a 2006 ADN article:

“Let me help you out if you’re looking for skeletons in my closet,” she said. “I got a D in a macro-econ course 24 years ago in college (and) hollered at the wrong kid this morning for not taking out the garbage.”

HA!

“One of her most influential backers is former Gov. Wally Hickel, another Republican maverick who won his second gubernatorial term as the Alaskan Independence Party candidate.”

Florida today—-McCain Rally——
After viewing /reading about this rally today (www.fivethirtyeight.com )
I have decided they need to change the name from Republican to KKK. Now
I am wondering if I should go shopping, wearing my Obama T shirt. I have received a lot of dirty looks, but also some smiles. The dirty looks don’t bother me, as I just give them a smile. However, I do worry about being attacked, since I am an elderly woman. I must say that I am proud of Iowa, as Obama won 1st in the Iowa caucus , and we are 98% white. I also feel that Iowa will be a good judge when looking at what the cat (McCain) dragged in, when it is time to vote. I am looking forward to working as a poll watcher on Tues. I Pray that Obama will get to the finish line and we can all take a deep breath and a sigh of relief.

Evening folks! Just had to stop in here to see how you all were reacting to your Governor telling ABC that she doesn’t plan to go back to Alaska if (when) they lose, saying “I’m not in this for naught”.

As I have learned reading this wonderful blog, Sarah has crapped on everyone who has given her a hand up. Of course McNasty would have known this had he bothered to vet her. But, alas, she’s shown her true colors and thrown Grampy under the bus.

How do the people of Alaska feel about a Governor who doesn’t want to come back to her home state and do her job?

After the election, I don’t think Frank the Lineman will have to stand alone. I predict he’ll have plenty of behind-the-scenes help from the RNC. The Wall Streeters and other corporatists who own the national Republican Party are not going to allow control of their investment to pass to a “rogue-diva/whack-job” from Wasilla. No way, no how.

Didn’t anyone teach Miss Palin good, old-fashioned manners?

I just watched the Tom Delay interview on Hardball. What a HUGE tool! I loved Debbie Wasserman Schultz though. After Delay came on and did the the usual Barack is a socialists/communist/radical/scrariest-guy-in-the-whole-wide-world smear, Debbie Wasserman comes and says,

With all due respect consider the source. She went on to point out that Delay was tossed out of Congress in disgrace and that he had presided over the most corrupt Congress in recent history!

Chris Matthews just cracked up with the her saying ‘with all due respect’ and then slamming him.

She is really cute and so damn smart!

The list of Scahagates is getting so long I can barely keep up.

I just got home from doing my 3 hrs of volunteering at the Demo Office, calling to remind people to vote on Tuesday. It was so much fun, and I enjoyed all the other volunteers. I am a bit hearing and sight challenged so being in a room full of people all talking at once, while fun and exciting did give me more of a challenge than I expected. What to do? What to do? I talked the headman into letting me talk the program home so I can call from the quite of my own little office, with my big wide flat screen and my hearing enhanced phone. So, if any of you Mudpuppies are in ID you may be hearing from me in the next 5 days. I’ll just be asking if you are going to vote, if you know where your polling place is, and if you need a ride to the polls.

Vote 11/4 Obama/Biden

I haven’t seen but two MSM sites so far this evening (EDT), then came quickly to the real news sites, but if Palin has actually announced – then you might wonder that the timing was planned to distract news coverage from Obama’s ad tonight.

Kind of like McCain panicking when Obama got such a big crowd at his acceptance speech and announced Palin to take some of the post convention coverage away. I hope the present “political” move works as well as that one –
And we see Sarah tank as more Repugs jump a ship that she is trying to hijack.
My suggestion, to Republicans – chain her and McCainRoveChaneyBush to the masts and the last decent Republican off the Reocon ship of Fools gets to scuttle the ship.

Who does she think she is, God? She can just waltz in unprepared, largely unwanted, and take over anyway?

The McCain campaign has literally been calling Obama the anti-Christ. Wouldn’t that scenario work better for Palin? Lucifer disguised in Neiman Markus clothing, red spike heels over cloven hoofs, little horns under what ever that pile of hair is called, claiming to be a Christian until she has lead the world into the self immolation of multiple simultaneous World Wars and environmental destruction??

Consider the lilies of the field – that are now extinct.

Does God’s gift of human life on earth end when we have destroyed his handiwork, one day’s worth (the sky, seas, polar bears, plants etc.) at a time?

The sheer arrogance of this woman is just absolutely mind-boggling.

Here is her quote:

I think that if I were to give up and wave a white flag of surrender, I think that some of the political shots that we’ve taken – that that would bring this whole – and I’m not doing this for naught.” </blockquote?

What exactly is she doing?????? What has this woman done. She has been on the national political scene for LESS THAN TWO MONTHS! She has given ZERO press conferences. She has made blunder after blunder after gaffe after gaffe. She has proved herself to be embarrasingly IGNORANT on just about everything from foreign affairs to the economy or anything at all that doesn’t involve calling Obama a terrorist! She has the worst VP ratings in the history of poll-taking. She has single-handedly cost McCain whatever chance he had to win this election. She is the reason almost every intelligent Conservative has fled the party.

She has more baggage than Paris Hilton arriving at LAX from London and she has a new scandal pop up about once a day.

And she thinks this is hard work? What has she done besides dress up in really expensive clothes, had her hair and makeup done by Hollywood professionals, read from cue cards and called Barack Obama names?

She is truly a certifiable whack job! The only thing more shocking then her unbridled UGLY naked ambition is her pathological, clincially, delusional mental illness that has her believe that she has even the slightest qualification to be President of the United States?

She got where she is ON HER LOOKS and the fact she is a right-wing nutcase! PERIOD!!!!!

It’s 50k for redecorating the Mayor’s office. If she ALSO redecorated the Gov.’s mansion that’ll really tick me off. She never even stays there! She spends all her time either at home in Wasilla, while charging us a per diem, or flying around the country. The Gov.’s mansion sits empty. (It was nice when Tony was in town. He lived in the mansion and made himself a part of the Juneau community.)

Newsflash!

Sarah Palin has been admitted to a local hospital in Jeffersonville, Indiana for “observation.” She was admitted by her handlers after a group of protestors outside of her scheduled evening political rally questioned her love of Christ. According to eyewitnesses, Palin took off her Neiman Marcus heels and threw the shoes at the protestors yelling, “I am full of God’s love. I am full of Christ’s love.” Then, Palin had a meltdown burying her head in her hands sobbing, “I am Hilary Faye. I AM Hilary Faye.” A close friend of Palin’s told the local media that Sarah Palin has often thought of herself as the character Hilary Faye played by movie star Mandy Moore in the religious satire film Saved!

About Palin’s hospitalization, john mccain himself commented saying, “it’s a fine line between a maverick and a wack job!”

Also saw that CNN is not acknowleging Palin’s statement from the ABC interview that it is in regard to 2012, until they see the full transcript or interview. They jump on everything else like ACORN and run rabid with it, so why should this be any different.

Unfortunately for me, in Canada where I am, CNN is the only US news station we get. I don’t get Fox, MSNBC and whatever others there are. Depend on computer for those. I usually turn the station when Lou Dobbs is on or I will break my TV. I have bought marshmallows to throw at it just in case!!!!

OK, like enjay I have something that may have been posted before, but I only saw it once, posted by “untomcat” on Oct-26.

It ‘s a little story.

A woman in a hot air balloon (let’s call her Sarah) realized she was lost. She lowered her altitude and spotted a man in a boat below. She shouted to him: “Excuse me, can you help me? I promised a friend I would meet him an hour ago, but I don’t know where I am.” The man consulted his portable GPS and replied, “You’re traveling by hot air ballon, approximately 30 feet above a ground elevation of 2346 feet above sea level. You are at 31 degrees, 14.97 minutes north latitude and 100 degrees, 49.09 minutes west longitude.” She rolled her eyes and said, “You must be a democrat.” “I am,” replied the man, “how did you know?” “Well, answered the balloonist, “everything you told me is technically correct, but I have no idea what to do with your information, and I’m still lost. Frankly, you’ve not been much help to me.” The man smiled and responded, “You must be a republican.” “I am, replied the balloonist. “How did you know?” “Well,” said the man, “You don’t know where you are or where you are going. You’ve risen to where you are, due to a large quantity of hot air. You made a promise that you have no idea how to keep, and you expect me to solve your problem. You’re in exactly the same position you were in before we met, but, somehow, now it’s my fault.”

I am getting suspicious that there is something about Palin’s mental health in her records. Here’s why: 1) Looking at her performance in this campaign only, she is very strange, illogical and frankly, crazy. 2) The McCain camp leaked that she is a “whack job.” 3) Why else would they let her be the only candidate in the race who has not released health records?

@OC Liberal, I LOVE what you wrote about Palin saying what she said today for revenge, since the McCain campaign called her a “whack job.” You are brilliant! Great observation.

InJuneau aka Wrangler Tractor That One Hussein

In all fairness to the current Alaskan administration, the Governor’s House (the one in Juneau, not “her” house in Wasilla) is very old and has been in need of a lot of work in the past few years. Nancy Murkowski started a committee to take over dealing with maintenance of the House and start dealing with some of the serious issues. It was built in 1935, I think, so it wasn’t up to any current codes for much of anything. There have been significant window leaks and other structural problems, as well as seriously outdated plumbing and electrical systems that need/needed updating (notwithstanding the issue of updating the 1930s electrical system so that it could handle a tanning bed! LOL). While I don’t think it’s appropriate IF the First Dud’s friends did the work, I know that it’s the “job” of the First Spouse to oversee the maintenance of the house and the House Committee, so it’s not like he was out of line in taking on that task. From the reports I read recently on some website, I think that ~$50,000 was spent on repairs, not $900,000, but I may have missed some articles.

I have no such insightful comments on the other Housegate, however.

Todd Palin featured in ads and mailers to rural Maine and elsewhere.
“Will this be your last winter snowmobiling in a national park?…This election will decide.”

———————————————————————

What is the world was the reason why this was sent out? What is the issue behind it?

I moved to Downeast, Maine a couple of years ago from Texas. Snowmobiling and moose gutting are big deals here too. But the state is increasing the milies of snowmobile paths by buying up old railroad lines and converting them.
I’ve been walking on one that is still being worked on.
No RV’s permitted but snowmobiles will be.
There apparently are speed limits and other restrictions for snowmobiles and RV’s in the more heavily populated parts of Maine where there are many more pedistrians using the same paths as the RV’s and snowmibiles. So maybe that is what the first dud is talking about.
Or maybe its just Repocon BS. Or maybe the dud thinks it is OK to run over and injure pedestrians.

The beautiful fall foliage just got whipped off the trees in the last two days but all ya’ll southerners come see our trees and eat our lobsters next year. Ya’ll heah.

I liked it very much, but as I posted on the MF forum, I wish he’d concentrated a bit more onthe military, how he plans to end the war in Iraq, maybe some response to the “invasion” of Syria, etc. He only had one high profile military official singing his praises and I’m worried the GOP may pounce on that.

Other than that, I love the man to death and think he is the last great hope for our country. Don’t get me wrong. 😉

NEWS FLASH

Rally and March to be held November 1, 2008.

The people of Arizona have decided to divorce John McCain. Arizona’s “favorite” son has lost his luster. As his campaign implodes across the country and Barack Obama continues to poll convincing numbers in battleground states, McCain faces the real possibly of losing even in his home state. Yes, the separation is already underway.

Led by the Phoenix-based End The War Coalition, several progressive organizations, including Progressive Democrats of America, are planning a major rally and march on Saturday, November 1st. The “Arizona Divorces McCain” rally kicks off at 11:00 a.m. at Madison #1 School parking lot, 5525 N. 16th Street, Phoenix. Following the rally, organizers plan to march to McCain’s Arizona campaign headquarters and deliver the divorce decree.

I will be there.

109-year-old Bastrop woman casts her vote by mail.

Amanda Jones, a delicate, thin woman wearing golden-rimmed glasses, giggled as the family discussed this year’s presidential election. She is too weak to go the polls, so two of her 10 children — Eloise Baker, 75, and Joyce Jones — helped her fill out a mail-in ballot for Barack Obama, Baker said. “I feel good about voting for him,” Amanda Jones said.

Ok. I am going to be a tiny drop of, um, not negativity, but..um, I wasn’t overwhelmed by Obama’s program. I tried to watch it from the prospective of an undecided voter (Rachel just reported that three percent of the early voters (people who VOTED) didn’t know for whom they were voting), and I found mysef wishing he would have gone more in-depth about one or two issues rather than lightly touch all of them.

In addition, I would have loved it if Dick Luger had appeared. All in all, it was nicely done, but too overly-polished for my taste.

Sorry! I will now duck and hide.

Seems to me that the most appropriate place to file these types of complaints and the department most appropriately equipped legally to handle these types of complaints is the federal DOJ’s Public Corruption Unit.

Taking public money when one is not entitled to that public money is a criminal act. Palin’s Personnel Board, as your spineless AG knows, has no authority to investigate or otherwise handle criminal matters.

Sarah Palin can better believe that if she runs for President in 2012, that the Republican opposition research will find mudflats. She’d be well advised to high tail it back to the house Todd built for her with his “construction buddies.”

She needs to read the writing on the wall… if Stevens is convicted as he was, what makes her think she’s going to escape that same type of scrutiny? Yes, there are scads of women out there who really, really really, want a woman for President.

But most of those same women do not want a woman president who has the stench of public corruption following her around like a wet, smelly fart.

I don’t think anybody who is still undecided will watch the Obama special and say, “Yup, he answered my questions” because, quite frankly, if they haven’t decided by now, they really shouldn’t be voting, anyway. Anything either candidate comes up with now is purely spin.

i would rather have watched an entire Obama speech.

I’d like to ask the bloggers on this site to go to the Anchorage Daily News site and send a letter to the editor, here is the site:
http://www.adn.com/help/letters/
Here is a copy of the letter I sent:
“We down here in the lower 48 will in part rely on the media in Alaska to tell us the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth about Governor Sarah Palin as we head to the polls to vote for the next leader of the free world and their running mate. We were let down by an intimidated mainstream media in the lower 48 the past 8 years when they did not investigate the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth about George W. Bush and his team. For that we now have an economic meltdown, 2 wars, an energy crisis not to mention the deteriorated state of our education system, our unfavorable standing in the world and pending environmental issues. I hope the Alaska Daily News has the courage and foresight to not be intimidated by a label of “liberal media bias” in presenting the whole truth on Governor Sarah Palin. ”
It’s time “we the people” started asking for some truth and accountability from the media. Thanks.

Worth repeating, except that I think it’s an IRS matter. Anyone out there in mudflat land want to drop a dime?

Randy (14:28:23) :

In reviewing the Palins tax returns that were disclosed there was a business deduction for the snowmobile racing business, which includes the Iron Dog race. I recall one of the questionable perdiem vouchers was for the Gov. and family to be at the race in an official capacity. Based on this I would venture to guess the same expense is deducted on their tax return, which is Tax Fraud, as well as filing a false public voucher, you can’t have it both ways.
This angle shuld be looked at in the investigation.

@Scotsgirl (17:57:12) : Don’t mean to be cryptic or anything, but I don’t think anyone wants to dredge up rumors… But on Friday there was a post on this site about a Palin ‘story’ http://cajunboyinthecity.blogspot.com/2008/10/something-to-keep-eye-out-for-this.html

If you click on it, you can read it and all the comments. At the very end, someone earlier posted a letter to the editor of the ADN & asked readers to follow up if we feel that’s who is holding on to the story.

I have long been advocating that something come out of a more ‘personal’ nature because I feel that if anything is truly there it must be shown and dealt with on the national stage. Mommy Dearest’s behavior in the ‘family room’ has everything to do with her judgment, her blind ambition, etc… That is, IF there is anything substantive that is being withheld…..

So, Scotsgirl, click on the link & some others, and you decide. Another blogger, Gryphen, (Alaska’s The Immoral Minority) is also a good source.

hi fellow mudflatters! I am just back from a LONG 5 days in texas (went to visit my mother in the very RED texas panhandle)….if it weren’t for my 89 year old mother who (as a lifelong republican) is voting for obama, I would have been clawing the walls. My mother has only basic cable (fox news was the only NATIONAL news channel evidently on basic cable in the texas panhandle) I did end up at the library the past 3 afternoons, to get some REALITY check….but given my mother’s relatively LIMITED exposure to anything but FOX news ….I must say, I was most impressed with her ability to come out STILL in favor of Obama (she actually gets rather emotional when talking about him)
I did catch a CSPAN program last nite…with two progressive pundits talking about obama’s campaign and how we can expect a president who understands and will take advantage of 21st century technology! (they gave his campaign great raves about use of youtube and the internet
Anyway…I am so glad to be back in the land of the INFORMATION!!!

Ship is where Palin spoke yesterday afternoon between her Hershey and PSU appearances. Ship is Shippensburg University in south central pennsyltucky; in fact, not far from me. I have one of those Ship Happens t-shirts.

Dickinson is a small college north of Shippensburg in Carlisle; some sport there has a t-shirt which says Run Hard Big Dick. Yet, it’s considered a conservative school. Go figure.

Brian aka Snooker Hinge Palin (14:46:11) :,

I think there’s a couple of things going on with her. First, she has some sort of personality disorder that allows her to compartmentalize her idealized view of herself and protect that self-evaluation from reality and second, her extreme religious beliefs (bordering on religious hysteria–a recognized mental illness) allow her to rationalize that everything she does is okay because she is God’s chosen one. This pattern has manifested itself throughout history–in some of the most vile and destructive tyrants the world has known. All I can say is if she should get elected, YIKES!

Marnie (16:36:43) : Todd Palin featured in ads and mailers to rural Maine and elsewhere. “Will this be your last winter snowmobiling in a national park?…This election will decide.”

——————
What is the world was the reason why this was sent out? What is the issue behind it?
________________
I moved to Downeast, Maine a couple of years ago from Texas. Snowmobiling and moose gutting are big deals here too. But the state is increasing the milies of snowmobile paths by buying up old railroad lines and converting them. I’ve been walking on one that is still being worked on.
_____________________

Marnie points out an important distinction that is way beyond First Dud’s comprehension. The STATE, not the National Pak, is converting rails to trails in Maine. Also, snowmobiling is allowed in certain STATE parks. I am not sure if snowmobiling is done at Acadia National Park – in part due to rules and in part due to practicality of it, ie, snow doesnt stick on the ground deep enough along coastal areas to allow for snowmobiling.

As with Sarah not understanding the constitutional limitations on the VP’s duties, the First Dud simply does not understand that there is a difference between federal and state.

Breaking News!

Unable to manufacture a tie between O.J. Simpson and Barack Obama which would have put Obama at the murder scene of Simpson’s wife, the RNC has decided to label Obama a canibal.

How do they plan to sell this canibal allegation to the public?

The RNC claims to have a video of Obama in Mike Tyson’s corner during his 1997 heavyweight championship boxing match against Evander Hollyfield oft-labeled “The Bite Fight of the Century.” According to a McCain spokesman, it was Obama that shouted the corner instructions to Tyson to “bite his ear, Mike. bite his ear and chew on it. it is a good source of protein. it will give you a protein boost so you can win this fight. do it! bite that ear!!”

If you need to be motivated to vote, or know someone who is thinking Obama is so far ahead that one vote won’t count, then check this out. A San Francisco based radio host has collected links to show the current voter suppression, purging, vote flipping, absentee ballot mischief, and other efforts underway to suppress the vote.

@ Anon:
“I already tried asking someone in AK about the ADN, her response was that if the ADN had something on Palin, she’s pretty certain they’d be running it.”

I would think that too, except that the ADN just endorsed Obama, and I can understand why they would not want to follow that so soon with this kind story. Doing them back to back would make it too easy to question the credibility of either. Unfortunately, if that is what is going on, I highly doubt that they will run the story before the election because it is just getting too close.

But I’m keeping my fingers crossed, whoever has it.”

So…. *sigh*, if getting a story on her true character out there in any way would mess up the Dems’ momentum, then I will certainly wait it out…. But man, oh man, it had better get out there before that Madwoman gets any other ideas about doing anything other than high tailing it into the hinterlands come Nov. 5th…

I think that’s because to many in Alaska the state IS the country? “First Family” and all? It’s kind of like to many in the U.S. the country is the world. As in, the world reaches from West Coast to East Coast. It doesn’t have to make sense, it’s just how it is.

If you or your state or your country are basically cut off from the bigger world out there, be it geographically or mentally or traditionally, where you live your life IS your world – or your country, whatever.
It doesn’t have to make sense… on a personal level, I’ve learned that this kind of thing goes with the general non-elitist American assumption that all Germans are blond and somehow way behind the times (Old Country = people walking around in quaint clothing and whittling things like odd clocks, maybe), which in the mind of the non-elitist American is not at all at odds with the parallel knowledge that Mercedes-Benz and Porsche are German-made cars.

It’s simply the kind of perspective that grows from living where and how they do. Though I would really, REALLY expect wanna-be top politicians to have broken out of the small world of their own before they meddle in the big world.

I thought the Obama-mercial was fantastic ! Especially how they seemlessly switched from the taped portion to the conclusion of the Florida rally. His closing remarks had shivers running up my spine.

I probably won’t sleep much on Monday, November 3;

You know how little kids can’t sleep on Christmas Eve, with the anticipation of waking up the next morning and running downstairs to see what Santa left under the tree —

Well, that will be me, but with the anticipation of waking up the next morning and rushing to the polls at 6:00 AM before work and pulling that lever for Obama !

And I’ve already scheduled a vacation day for Tuesday, January 20, to watch Obama’s swearing in and all the inauguration festivities.

eyes wide open in pittsburgh:

mccain is really a moron. he’s not just playing one on tv.

During the 1990s, while he served as chairman of the International Republican Institute (IRI), McCain distributed several grants to the Palestinian research center co-founded by Khalidi, including one worth half a million dollars.

A 1998 tax filing for the McCain-led group shows a $448,873 grant to Khalidi’s Center for Palestine Research and Studies for work in the West Bank. (See grant number 5180, “West Bank: CPRS” on page 14 of this PDF.)

The relationship extends back as far as 1993, when John McCain joined IRI as chairman in January. Foreign Affairs noted in September of that year that IRI had helped fund several extensive studies in Palestine run by Khalidi’s group, including over 30 public opinion polls and a study of “sociopolitical attitudes.”

http://www.washingtonmonthly.com/

the only people who are going to listen to mccain’s nonsense at this point are people who are functionally illiterate.

Regarding Obama and Rashid Khalidi, why does Sarah Palin think it is so dangerous to have friends who have a different opinion? Is there no room for intellectual discourse?

In reviewing the Palins tax returns that were disclosed there was a business deduction for the snowmobile racing business, which includes the Iron Dog race. I recall one of the questionable perdiem vouchers was for the Gov. and family to be at the race in an official capacity. Based on this I would venture to guess the same expense is deducted on their tax return, which is Tax Fraud, as well as filing a false public voucher, you can’t have it both ways.
This angle shuld be looked at in the investigation.

Marty -AZ – this morning, with the chase being featured, it reminded me of what we are going to be back to on stations like MSNBC and CNN. Car chases, planes trying to land without their full gear. Boring stuff they have to pick up on because they are on 24 hours a day and need filler! I keep MSNBC on a TV by my computer (work from home, day and night) and I have really ODed on cable news for a while.

Bill was awesome – totally hit it out of the park. (and way to go phillies!) two huge crowds in Florida in one night – Wow! And after his very cool 30minute show.

Apparently when McCain pointed one finger at Obama for Kahlid he forgot that 4 were pointing back at him. When he was on some Committee it gave $500,000 to Kahlid’s Palestinian group. Hah!! HAh!! What an A$$!! Oops ;0

Glad to see Mark Begich is up in the polls!!

I referred you to a link that’s TOTALLY IN GERMAN. Yikes! I’m sorry. As I tried to link it but could not, I would suggest that anyone who REALLY wants to read the interview google “Chomsky” and “Spiegel” – I tried it and it will get you to the interview.

Chomsky: The American society has become more civilized, largely as a result of the activism of the 1960s. Our society, and also Europe’s, became freer, more open, more democratic, and for many quite scary. This generation was condemned for that. But it had an effect.

SPIEGEL: Professor Chomsky, we thank you for this interview.

While I am a supporter of Barack, I respect Chomsky and want to read more of his books. I really hope that Barack is more of a “dove” than a “hawk”. One thing that has impressed me about Barack is that he wants to withdraw from Iraq.

I listened to the Alex Jones radio show today (www.info-wars.com) and all Alex did was sh*t talk Barack to my bf’s delight. I do not agree with Alex Jones and my bf knows it. He is pissed that I donate money to Barack and read and sometimes make comments (usually incendiary, so I apologize to anyone who’s offended) on Mudflats, HuffPo, etc.

Anyway, point being, are there any other Mudflatters who derive extra joy from knowing their spouse/partner/family is pissed that you read/comment on, Obama-supportive blogs? Just wondering.

Only the airport, to change planes. I tried a few years ago to talk my two older kids into a trip to tour the University of Chicago when they were looking at colleges, but they were looking at Eastern schools. One ended up at Yale and another at Cornell. I still have a 12 year old at home. I am hoping that when she is college age it will be lawful by then for me to sell my body parts on ebay. Educating the first two wiped us out. What could I sell a kidney for? Anyone know? But I digress. I do want to plan a week in Chicago sometime.

The 2012 story is running on CNN, MSNBC, and Huffington Post, to name a few (if you already know because I am late to the party, sorry). The Travelgate and Mansiongate stories are on CNN and regular channels- tsk, tsk; not polite for a current VP candidate to diss those who brought her to the dance. At the same time, John McCain is talking to Larry King Live and praising his running mate, how she is so ready to be President, he has complete confidence- very happy with their relationship.

It drives my bf so crazy that I won’t play XBox with him now but rather spend hours on my computer reading Mudflats for example. Strike one. Second, we listen to Alex Jones broadcasts together and while I agree with some things (9-11 was a controlled demolition, etc.), I really think Alex Jones and his ilk are paranoid and deluded. I voice my opinion. Strike Two. I donate to the Obama campaign. Strike Three. It’s sweet that we have such a good relationship that the good outweighs the so-called bad. He doesn’t tell me what to do or think, same with me about him. Maybe that’s why our relationship is strong? My bf is a “truther” or “conspiracy theorist” – better than a Repug I suppose.

I hope Alaskans will keep her honest when she goes home on November 5. You folks do not deserve the skimming of your taxpayer money by the Palin family.

Why $50,000 to replace stained carpet in a stairwell? $10,000 to replace a perfectly ordinary looking pocket door? $30,000 for a rail on the front steps?

Had to take a break for our little Obama group in Cecily.

The snowmobile thing is both a lie and non-issue as far as Obama is concerned. Obama has never taken a position on snowmobiling one way or the other as far as I know.

It’s like the NRA saying Obama is going to take away your guns. It’s a lie–Obama supports the right to bear arms.

Todd is saying–Obama is going to take away your snowmobile fun. It doesn’t have to be true. It doesn’t have to be a real issue. It’s just another smear campaign to create fear among the base the Palins know and cater to all too well.

Palin is trying to demonstrate that she knows how to stir up the base–whether there is a real issue or not, whether there is truth involved or not. The message is–See Republicans. We know how to mobilize the base–because McCain doesn’t. So pick me to be your leader next time.

Ask them to publish any information on Sarah Palin that they may have so voters can make a fully informed choice when they go to the polls.

While my husband is a Democrat, he’s the only one in his family who is. I’m afraid that I don’t try very hard to change their minds, which are not very open.

I have no doubt he will continue to do his very best as President to have an open and transparent government, to work hard for all people and their dignity, for their “right” to health care, for jobs, for diplomacy, for peace, for women’s rights, for the health of the planet.

It appears that Stevens will still be allowed to vote dispite his conviction:

Ted Stevens (R-Alaska) will be allowed to vote in next week’s election despite being found guilty of committing seven felonies, an Alaskan agency ruled Wednesday evening.
In order to be disqualified from voting in Alaska, a citizen must have committed a felony involving “moral turpitude” and the guilty verdict must meet the legal definition of a conviction.

Stevens’s crime does amount to a felony of moral turpitude, but since the court case is not officially concluded, he has not technically been convicted, according to a memo from the Alaska Department of Law.

“Accordingly, we think that Sen. Stevens should not be barred from voting…until a final judgment and sentence has been entered by the federal court in the case,” Michael Barnhill, senior assistant attorney general for Labor and State Affairs told Gail Fenumiai, director of the Division of Elections, in a memo.

Bet that legal opinion on Stevens came down straight from Talus Colberg. Must be true then. Talus Colberg for Attorney General. No one in government will ever have to respond to a supoena. Executive privilege reigns. There are felons and then there are felons. The legal system has yet to run its course. Only gifts that are wanted and asked for and held in one’s residence for more than fifteen years are really gifts and must be reported.

Maybe with Stevens conviction, the law will change to be more compassionate so that felons who have served their time will find a path back to citizenship and their right to vote.

Can this be for real? Seems unlikely, but nothing surprises me these days:

Simpson to reveal names of 30 Palin ex-lovers
WEBWIRE – Wednesday, October 29, 2008

NEW YORK, NY (October 29, 2008) Jessica Simpson, one of America’s most popular singers and actresses, says she will reveal the names of 30 men who are former lovers of Alaska Governor Sarah Palin – and according to sources, one of them is a married television station executive and one is a former police chief.

Simpson has achieved seven Billboard Top 40 hits, and has three gold and two multi-platinum RIAA-certified albums. Simpson rose to fame when she starred with her then-husband Nick Lachey in the MTV reality show “Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica.” She has also begun working as an actress, and is the older sister of Ashlee Simpson, an internationally successful pop rock singer and actress.

According to sources, six of the Palin’s lovers are from the state of Hawaii, five are from Idaho, one is from England and the rest are Alaskan. The list of names will be revealed “by the end of the week.”

“There should be no surprises on the list,” says a source.

Says Simpson: “Governor Palin is a woman of my own age and generation and success level and attractiveness who is rightfully being held up as a role model to young women nationwide. Given that she has thrust herself into the public eye, it is not just her political accomplishments should be held up to young woman as an example, but her sexual record as well.”

Simpson’s new country album, entitled “Do You Know,” debuted #1 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart this fall in both the US and Canada, led by the popularity of the single, “Come On Over.”

Simpson says Palin –- frequently ridiculed on the David Letterman Show as having the look of a “Lenscrafters spokesmodel” — is far from a cold lifeless idol placed upon a pedestal, but is in reality “a living, breathing, very sensual and sexually active woman who has accomplished a lot — and done it on her own political and sexual terms.”

The popular singer says she is releasing the list of names, apparently compiled by her celebrity security firm, to refute the double standard that cheers when men “play the field” before marriage but chastises women such as Palin and herself who do the same thing.

I enjoyed the awsomemercial…infomercial seems to demean a well produced half hour most would be proud of, even though Obama used it himself on the daily show — but really enjoyed his and Clinton’s speeches. It had been a while since I listened to his full stump speech and it just reinforced everything I like about him. He sees the gray in everything and understands that there is a middle ground to be had across the board. That’s what I like about him and thats why I proudly voted for him today.

Oh, thanks for the heads up on the The Devil in the White City. It was actually recommended to me by a docent at the Field Museum when I was visiting. I tried to find it at the library but had the name wrong. Now I can go find it. I love this site.

Its like that “priceless” commercial with the three kids going back to school: backpack – $20, being with people who understand you – Priceless. Y’all are my homies doing the funk down the hallway with me. I just love that commercial. Only good thing about the recession is that Mastercard brought it back to save on advertising.

Oh – yeah – Diane! Regan is from Dixon – went to little Eureka College (where my husband went for 2 years). My husband and I had a discussion of this the other day. I guess the tradition is for the president to be claimed by the state where they started their political career. So Cali can have Reagan, and we get Lincoln and Obama! (Lincoln born in Kentucky of course). But we will certainly share a portion with Hawaii! And a dab for Kansas.

The Cat Show–I just made up the name, but some fancy-schmancy breeders group started a cat show like the Best in Show dog show thing. It’s on the game network (don’t know why). I didn’t watch, but I read about it online

I know that the Obama program was to reassure the undecideds and, as Matthews said, white voters that Obama is not scary and a terrorist. It was well done, delivered on that point, and just a bit emotionally hollow for me. Again, I seem to be the only one, but I can live with it if it swings voters Obama’s way.

The Obama program is also on his website.

Lori W., I don’t think it’s true, but I could be wrong. Jessica Simpson is ten to fifteen years younger than Palin, so they aren’t really of the same generation. I wouldn’t blink if Palin had that many lovers, but I wouldn’t care, either.

Parting thoughts — great quote on HuffPo by Bill Cesca:

There are a lot of things to ridicule about Sarah Palin’s incomprehensible speaking style and backwards, simplistic views on the issues. But it’s her politics of fear and division that must be wholly rejected on Tuesday because it’s practically too terrible to imagine waking up one week from today in an America that rewards the awfulness and fear she and her allies rely upon. So before we arrive at the end of the Bush dark ride, let’s make sure the Palin dark ride comes to a complete stop on Tuesday.

As polls tighten, Democrats redouble efforts in Georgia

WASHINGTON — Just more than a month ago, Democratic presidential hopeful Barack Obama’s campaign pulled a number of field staffers out of Georgia and sent them to such emerging battleground states as North Carolina.

But that was before Georgia’s early voting showed record-high Democratic turnout, especially among African-Americans, and polls found a narrowing margin between the major presidential candidates.

That was also before Republican Sen. Saxby Chambliss found himself fighting for his political life against Democratic challenger and former state Rep. Jim Martin, who’s benefited from the Obama campaign’s voter-registration and get-out-the-vote efforts and from increased funding from the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee.

Copied this off of Cajun Boy’s blog — it sums up everything that is wrong about Bible Spice, everything that the good Christians here understand, and so many other Christian’s just don’t seem to get.

Warning: Cajun Boy uses some strong language (which doesn’t bother me a bit), but if that doesn’t bother you then it is a very entertaining place to go. I’m immune to bad language, so I go there daily…

So, here’s the excerpt from his blog titled “Who Would Jesus Vote For?”:

But the poster-child for the Republican assault on intelligence is the once honorable John McCain’s running mate, who, by the way is also an affront to Christians. While professing Christianity, Sarah Palin has shown a penchant for lying whenever she opens her mouth. Whether she’s making up the story that the Alaska legislature fully exonerated her of abuse-of-power charges, proclaiming that Obama is an anti-American terrorist sympathizer, calling Obama a socialist (and now, a communist) who will raise all our taxes and “redistribute wealth”, or reveling in the hatred and rage she incites at her rallies, Palin has proven herself to be a lying, vengeful, slanderous hypocrite who uses Christianity as a resume booster.

Marnie,
ATVs are a category of RVs in my book. So are snowmobiles. If its a vehicle used for recreation, then it’s an RV. If you are more likely to use them for fun than to commute to work, that makes it an RV in my book. No offence intended to those in the far north who actually do use their snowmobiles to commute. But we don’t do that in Maine or New Brunswick.

I found this last night.
Unfortunately I did not put the link on my copy and paste.
I am pretty sure it was Alternet.

“While driving this evening, I heard a portion of the Mike Malloy show on Sirius Left. Mike had some interesting information about the redistribution of wealth concept. First, he pointed out that the quotation originated with Louis Blanc, in his book, “The Organization of Work”, written in 1840.
More interesting, however, are a couple of passages from Acts of the Apostles. First, Acts 2:44-45:
“And all that believed were together, and had all things common;
And sold their possessions and goods, and parted them to all men, as every man had need.”

Next, there is this from Acts 4:32-35:
“Now the whole group of those who believed were of one heart and soul, and no one claimed private ownership of any possessions, but everything they owned was held in common. With great power the apostles gave their testimony to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, and great grace was upon them all. There was not a needy person among them, for as many as owned lands or houses sold them and brought the proceeds of what was sold. They laid it at the apostles’ feet, and it was distributed to each as any had need.”
That sounds pretty socialist/Marxist to me.
Why do Sarah Palin and John McCain hate the Apostles?”

Also.
I really enjoyed all the “Wow” responses to the Obama speach last night. I only have a low power FM pick up for internet and am lucky to have that, no TV no radio. So I was not able to see the speech, but had a lot of fun reading all your reactions as you loged back in. And really that’s one of the biggest differences that Obama is trying to make. Being a lover of the Constitution et al. has been so grim for the last 8 years. And he has returned “Wow” to American politics. So I am content.

Ethics Complaint Filed Against Sarah Palin For Using Taxpayer Funds To Travel Daughters on Private Plane | Prose Before Hos

[…] So Sarah Palin is the economically conservative and responsible maverick, but she has no problem spending $150,000 on her wardrobe, giving her kids thousand dollar handbags, or using tax payer money to fly her kids around the US? […]

“maryjblog (17:48:53) :

ooh, I can’t wait for Sarah to return home after the election so i can tune in to “As the Moose Turns – Back to Wasilla”

What do you Alaskans think – will Stevens be re-elected, will he step down, will Sarah seek to horn in on his job?”

OOOOh. Veeeery Interesting. (Spoken with German accent.)
If Stevens wins and has to step down. Who get to name his successor? Probably the governor. (Isn’t that how Senator Muckowski (sp?) got in? So Palin apoints her self to the US Senate. Is a special election required in Alaska?

Got the link to “Why do Sara Palin and John McCain Hate Jesus’ Apostles.”

It has the two quotes from Acts referring to the apostels communal sharing or property, and sharing based on need.
All those years of Bible Belt Sunday school, going to church, singing in the choirs, MYF. OMG I’ve been worshiping Marksist Communist!

So does Palin try to snag Steven’s seat? Has her “brand” been destroyed by these scandals and the botched McCain campaign? She obviously has higher ambitions; how much longer before we see her back on the national stage?

Hussein Canuck for Choice (22:15:48) : What do you all think SP will do once she’s “done like dinner” – kicked to the curb (of politics)?- “lay low” and wait for the godbothering Religious Right to “REAR THEIR HEAD” re: 2012?-go to jail?
-be convicted but just pay a huge fine?
Any thoughts?

Why doesn’t she care for her baby the way a Downs’ Syndrome child needs to be cared for? Early intervention and early nurturing are everything in achieving the highest potential with these children. When the opportunity is gone, it’s gone forever.

The campaign trail cannot be good for him either. Late hours, lights and noise, strangers, no stable place to sleep, no peace… it’s child abuse. It would be child abuse even for a normal child. Today he’s on stage in an elephant Halloween costume, for God’s sake. Who is running for VP – she or her entire family?

Jackie Kennedy said, if you bungle the job of mother, nothing else you do really matters very much.
