Palin Returns to Alaska to Vote. Democrats Will Greet Her!

3 11 2008

Calling all Mat-Su Valley Progressives, and early birds within driving distance from Wasilla!

In the wee hours of the night, Sarah Palin will fly in to Alaska to vote first thing Tuesday morning at her home polling place in Wasilla, then she will fly back out immediately afterward to be with John McCain for Election Day.

Those irrepressible Mat-Su Democrats have put out the call to join them for a sign waving event between 7am and 8am by Wasilla Lake! Bring your best signs, and join in! This is the best chance you’ll get to make an “in your face” election day statement.

So set that alarm clock (you’re not used to that extra hour of sleep anyway, right?), grab a thermos of coffee, hit the road, and join the rest of the intrepid souls that will be using all that great election day energy on the side of the road in a town that never knew it would be famous.

Anyone going, please send pictures ASAP and I’ll get them out there to a wider audience.

I will be passing through Wasilla around 5 am, taking my camera! Probably too early to see anyone, but you never know. For the mayors race there were lots of folks out putting up signs that early. For sure there will be sign wavers on my way home at 2:30, and will stop and take pic’s all the way if I have to stop at every business on the downtown strip.

Posted this on the last thread and hope you don’t mind my moving it over.

Very sad news about Obama’s grandmother. How great that he got to go back and see her last week.

And how typical that the Repubicans called it a cheap ploy, a waste of jet fuel, and a secret plan to alter his birth certificate in Hawaii. Shame is clearly a foreign concept for them.

Just want to add that Dick Durbin’s daughter died on Saturday. Rough time for both our Senators.

I was on the staff of his first Senate campaign and he’s a friend. Hadn’t seen any plans but I was expecting that he’d introduce Barak tomorrow night. He was one of a small, handful of people who helped him work through the decision to run and is a valued friend and mentor.

Dick still may do that, but as we watch, know that both men take that stage with heavy hearts. There’s a lesson here. It’s just hard to find it right now.

I would SO be there if I didn’t live 5,000 miles away. Please wave a sign for me saying “This isn’t the Wasilla you thought you knew!”

Stay warm, stay safe, may she learn that her days of pretending are over. Thank you in advance to everyone who will go welcome her. 🙂 Damn, wish I could be there!

Yeah, I’d be there too if I didn’t live 700 miles away… or 600 or whatever the distance is she claims to live away from her Duty Station… Would love to reuse my signs from the local rally…

If I could be there, my sign would say:

Gov. P,
Why are you hiding your med records?

Snarky, I know.

Apparently 3.2 million people have donated to the Obama campaign! Way to go! GOTV!

You will be representing ALL of us; I know I will be there in spirit! Wish to hell I could be freezing my A** off out there and holding a witty, yet (barely) tasteful sign to “welcome” the Saracuda back to Alaska.
You guys have all the fun.
Still, I’ll be getting up at 5 am and heading to the polls, because it opens at 7 and I really have to be to work by 8 (especially since all the honchos have seen my Obama bumpersticker) Wouldn’t do to be late; I’m one of the most recent hires!
Just think, a little bit over 24 hours from now, we will probably have a good idea who the next President will be!
And I’ve got my sparklers ready–it’s out into the street to light them and run around for a few minutes, howling at the moon!

So she can charge the state for travel fees for her kids, of course.

If anyone is going to yell “Boo” could you yell one for me too please? “Shame, shame” is good too!

Yes, so sad about Barack’s grandma. I was hoping she could hang on just a little longer. Enough to see him win the election at least. Our sincerest condolences to Sen. Obama and his family.

kate aka chin duststrap

Since I have come to adore Alaska over the past 8 weeks, I know you won’t let me down and you will give her a terrific welcome home. Tell her how much you want her back, not in DC!
and then when she gets back, vote her out as soon as you can. And don’t vote for her again!

You Mudflatters captured my heart in late September when – while scouring the web looking for clues about Ms. Palin because I just *knew* she wasn’t genuine – I happened upon the blogs Progressive Alaska, Alaskans for Truth, Celtic Diva, Shannymoore and – you lot🙂

I’ve got you all bookmarked and yours are the first sites I check every morning when I wake up and the last ones I check at night before going to bed. I’m so afraid of the McCain/Palin Combo I can’t even describe it. And I haven’t been this afraid of an election since Goldwater was on the ticket, with hand poised over the launch buttons.

So know that your Ozzie mates are all counting on you Alaskans to keep our countries safe from a McCain/Palin administration – and if we can do anything from our corner of the globe in the coming months to help – just say G’day!

So glad Sarah Palin will be returning to Alaska and not to Washington DC on January 20, 2009. She’s a sarcastic fascist liar. I don’t feel sorry for you folks, as you folks seem to be overwhelmingly in the tank for McCain/Palin.
I guess you really like her politics.

Can someone ask her why she still hasn’t released her medical records?

mwTHATONE40yrsAnchorage

Just checked the temp……it is 20 degrees ~ a bit cool. Guess I better go see if I can find my longjohns. It will be a chilly morning outside, but with Starbucks’ free coffee and mudpups around we will stay warm.

go, Blue….

3 11 2008

For those of you who live in Anchorage who can’t make it out to the Valley to show your support for Obama, there is a sign-waving event on the corner of the Seward Hwy and Benson from 7-9 am. There’s more information on the Obama website.

So, Alaskans…when do you recall her? Can you?

3 11 2008

If Palin is flying home to vote can a law suit be filed against her like the GOP filed against Barack for flying to Hawaii to visit his ill Grandmother? Yes, the Calif. GOP TODAY filed a law suit on the day his Grandmother passed on. The suit is against Barack for flying to Hawaii to visit his ill Grandmother. I can’t believe it! As bad as Palin laughing at BIden when he lost his Mother in Law. What kind of people are these People. Do they eat their young or what?

I Soooooo wish I could be there! Have fun, send photos (I look forward to seeing this set of signs!)… and give Sarah the “welcome” home she deserves.

Nice carbon footprint, Ms. Palin. Thanks (said very sarcastically).

I also would like to extend my condolences to Dick Durbin and family, whose daughter died over the weekend (I think it was late Saturday).
