Palin and the Crack in the Door.

12 11 2008

door

Alaska, bar the door! Here’s the latest little gem from Governor Sarah Palin. For six weeks we couldn’t get her to talk, and now we can’t get her to stop!

“You know, I have — faith is a very big part of my life. And putting my life in my creator’s hands — this is what I always do. I’m like, OK, God, if there is an open door for me somewhere, this is what I always pray, I’m like, don’t let me miss the open door. Show me where the open door is. Even if it’s cracked up a little bit, maybe I’ll plow right on through that and maybe prematurely plow through it, but don’t let me miss an open door. And if there is an open door in ’12 or four years later, and if it is something that is going to be good for my family, for my state, for my nation, an opportunity for me, then I’ll plow through that door.”

Can somebody out there help me shove this huge heavy dresser over there in front of that door? EErrrrrgggghhhh.

For more thoughts on Palin’s crack in the door, the Alaska vote, and the future of convicted Senator Ted Stevens, check out Rachel Maddow and her guest, fellow Alaskan blogger and radio journalist Shannyn Moore! Here’s the LINK.

I think if God wants her to enter through the door, HE would OPEN it WIDE – like he did for Presdient-elect Obama. There would be no need to ‘PLOW THROUGH” the door. Btw, did God let Obama win? Or did the devil take over? Afraid to ask for her crazy explanation. Can she just shut up already?

This woman is really and truly painful.

It’s been over a week now, Sarah, time to go take all your money out of the bank and go buy yourself an effing clue. It’s over. You lose. Obama win. Done. In four years you’ll be wrinkly or stretchy looking, your Downs Syndrome baby will be nearing 5 and needing lots of attention (you remember giving attention to your kids and making them a priority, right, Sarah?). And the Romneys and Gingrichs of this world will be salivating at the prospect of trouncing you, which either of them can easily do.

Take a chill pill, go on vacation, pour yourself a nice glass of single malt scotch, and brace yourself for matters far closer to home, like ongoing investigations. There is no door. It’s an illusion. We’re sick to death of you.

Seems to me she just can’t recognize that God slammed the door in her face.

Really, what is best for my family is the first in the list? I find that very hard to believe if you track her vp bid and then all of the interview footage. Family seems to be last.

Let her talk at least we have more footage ala Tim Russert style to hang her with later.

Letter writing to Palin vs letter writing to Alaskan newspapers and keeping the heat on her through the media. Or both.

I really think the MSM are just letting her show her stupidity even further! She is actually hanging herself, and we all find it amusing.

I mean who could really take her serious? She is absolutely an idiot! I don’t understand how she even became a Governor!

Even I have start to tolerate her now, just because I think she is a JOKE, and I know she is going to make a fool of herself! Like when Matt asked her about her son in eye-rack. She said as long as Obama surrounds himself around other folks who know yada yada yada…and then Matt called her on that statement, like she will only trust Obama if he surrounds himself with other people she trust. She then changed her answer. What a freakin IDIOT!!!

In the district that I taught in for 36 years, if a child had missed as many days as poor Piper did at the beginning of the school year, that child would be repeating that grade level the following year. And all those days that were over the maximum of 10 (for educational) purposes, would be subject to a fine. And did Piper carry that baby upstairs wearing those ridiculous high heeled shoes? She’s only 8 and she is constantly toting that baby around.

If Palin is going to be plowing through doors (prematurely or otherwise)
maybe her new name should be GODSILLSA?

I really do believe that women are capable of working outside the home and still raising a family properly. That having been said, she has a special needs baby, not only learning problems, but serious health issues go hand in hand with Downs syndrome And dragging Piper along for 2 months is not being a good parent.

How is it that Palin critized Hillary Clinton for ‘whining’ about the press and yet most of her over-exposure ad nauseum interviews seem to have the recurring them of ‘the press was too hard on me’? Methinks the lady has a memory recall problem or she should at least keep her talking points straight.

Interesting that now she is everywhere and anywhere – please make her go away – but was kept from the media throughout the campaign. By the way, I think Katie Couric deserves a special award for exposing this nitwit – and thank goodness she did!

Great graphic, AKM! You always seem to say so many words with the pictures that go with your posts.

It is so troubling to me that a certain Alaskan governor really thinks that her creator cares about her advancing herself in politics. She’ll keep on looking for the next door to plow through, and if she sees an opening anywhere, it will be there because her creator showed it to her. And she’ll take it to mean that she should, by any means possible, carry out her creator-given mandates.

When the door got slammed in her face, she didn’t interpret that as a sign to go away. It was just a sign that her time was not yet right. She must believe that her creator has great things in store for her. She has no plans to change how she does things. She’ll keep plowing. Her ambition is insatiable. I fail to see how that sort of personality would benefit anyone outside her bubble of delusion.

I just wish instead of plowing through doors, she’d just quietly shut the door of her home and take better care of her kids. Seems like all they eat is moose stews, chilis, burgers, etc.

I really don’t want to hear anymore from Palin about plowing her crack. Ick.

Sarah’s narcissism is rearing its head. She will not accept the fact that McCain lost votes because of her. Her two oldest kids are high school drop-outs, and for this she will not accept blame. She is nothing but a coat-tail-riding-opportunistic-vulture.

I just read a story in Vogue magazine entitled “All the Vice-Presidents Women” There is a photograph of all the Biden women. They are classy, intelligent and profoundly beautiful women. Michelle Obama and her family exude the same class and style. The merging of these two families as the nation’s First and Second families just feels right. Seeing all of them on stage when President-elect Obama made his acceptance speech, was a breathtaking and symbolic moment. It was harmonic.

Picture McCain and Palin’s dysfunctional families merging on stage. That merger would not have had the same visual harmony as the Obama/Biden clan. No, It would have felt like a screeching trainwreck grinding to a halt.

If Sarah continues to open her mouth and spout off inane comments, even the Conservatives will want her gone within a year or two.

Did anyone else catch the portion of Greta’s interview when that annoying kid Piper showed up? She asked her questions about finally go to school since her return to Alaska…Piper said it was hard…hard to catch up after missing so much time…and good ol’ mom jumped in and made excuses and put words in the kid’s mouth…..disgusting. She’s a control freak at this point…she ought to just go away and quit subjecting the world to her cover-ups and excuses for everything…and how the hell makes moose hotdogs in a designer suit? Was that to show just how folksy she is? Also, I noticed Bristol slither down a staircase and rapidly disappear from the camera’s view….

Lucky us, two more interviews today…on CNN.

Thank you for this great remark and observation from the last thread!

I was horrified when I saw Piper drag that poor baby Trig upstairs like a sack of potatoes! I was waiting for her to drop him. Doesn’t anybody in that “family” care?

Hope SP’s fingers get slammed in the door before it hits her in the ass (on her way out)!

She’s a little girl playacting, and one that hasn’t had her lying drive her friends away yet. It’ll happen, probably over something small and silly.

Piper, a 7 year old, in higher heels than I’ve ever worn.

Sarah’s opened the door even wider for us, and all kinds of truth is just plowing out.

And did Piper carry that baby upstairs wearing those ridiculous high heeled shoes? She’s only 8 and she is constantly toting that baby around.

I think Piper is only 7. I fear for that child. Can you imagine what it would do to her psyche if she dropped her brother on his head and seriously injured him? Thrusting a downs baby into the arms of a child in high heels is an accident waiting to happen.

If you haven’t seen it, check out the picture of Piper in 4″ heels having Trig thrust into her arms by the First Dude who was obviously tired of holding him.

As someone who cares… I’ve taken care of the door problem..

First, I replaced the door with a steel fire door, with double key deadbolts.
Second, I installed a Sloman Shield alarm system in case she gets in.
Third, I installed a laser that will instantly vaporize anyone managing to get in.
Fourth, if the laser should fail, 4 very hungry pitbulls, with lipstick are waiting for a meal to enter that door.
Fifth, a Predator drone with 2 hellfire missles will hover overhead.
And finally, if all else fails, AKM will be positioned to trounce if Barbie Grifter still gets in.

If SP believes that God informs or directs her movements then she HAS to understand that God’s message this last time was not to open any cracks in the door- but that he was slamming the door in her face…. what part about THAT message isn’t clear???

I don’t get this mind set… if they believe God speaks to them- how could the miss the message? OBAMA WON! ergo Obama must be God’s choice. End of story.

“plow right through”, “and, also, too”……..

Call me brain dead from overexposure to Wasilla-zilla. She stomps through the MSM, who can’t seem to ask a decent follow up question to save their behinds, leaving those of us who just want to ease back into normal post election life nauseous. Can’t we just enjoy this brief moment of post-victory glow without her non-styled hair getting in the way?

Between the commercial grade appliances and the municipal building stairway railings, the passive voice commentary, the repetition of lies, and the adoption of an offensive stance regarding all things sleazy, I’ve just had enough……and yet I can’t look away. What is wrong with me?

In NYTIMES this morning:

“Ms. Palin could be turning to television to restore her tarnished image, jumpstart a 2012 presidential bid, or both. But so far, viewers have mostly witnessed some of the very traits — disarming candor and staggering presumption — that drove some McCain campaign aides to leak damaging accusations about her.”

Start swatting those mosquitoes SP, they are a swarming.

If she can spin the public, like she is the top conservative republican speaker, maybe the press will leave her alone about trooper-gate and such.

Like Peter Lorre did to Vincent Price (and an unremembered actress and an unfortuante kitty) in “The Black Cat”: chain her to the wall and brick ‘er up! (Okay, this dates me…but this image is SO delightful)! Now if we could just get Larry King to STOP it!

By the way, did you notice Sarah would first consider the effect of a future run (for anything) on: First, her family; Second her state; and third, her COUNTRY?! I have no problem with people considering the effects of serious public office on family members, but the COUNTRY comes in a *distinct* third here…..so will her campaign motto be “Country Last”? I’ll make up the bumper stickers!

Has anyone read “Sarah: How a Hockey Mom Turned the Political Establishment Upside Down”?

Last night I was talking to a friend from northern CA who voted for “Sarah”. After all our conversations, she decided to vote for her because of this book and her “friend” from Alaska who is convinced that Sarah is the saint that Alaska is looking for. Obviously, I wasn’t too convincing before the election to get her to switch her vote.

I asked her if she knows about the ethics conviction, possible fraud charges (trips, house, clothes, etc…), and the anti-American AIP. The only thing she heard about lately is Joe the Plumber (she wasn’t watching the news, I guess). I said “What does this have to do, really, with Sarah Palin?” Geeeeesh! I suspect that my “friend” is being dishonest. She voted for Sarah because she is Pro-Life. That’s all. I said, if she cares so much about children why weren’t her children in school instead of being hauled around the country?

My big point in all of this is that “YES, people will probably support Sarah Palin as Senator or as a frontrunner in 2012.” So, we need to be ready.

One more thing. I guess Sarah’s relationship with God is not my business. If she feels she is doing God’s will……fine. But, I personally suspect it is SARAH’S WILL that takes priority over God’s will. Didn’t Jesus say…. You will know them by their acts? Her actions have not been very Godly during this election and before.

I am SO SO tired of Sarah Palin! I am hoping that in about a week, nobody in the media will care about her anymore and she will go away! They are just jumping all over her now because she didn’t give interviews during the election. The woman is starting to look more nuts than ever – she obviously LOVES attention and can’t get enough! Will she shut up soon???? AND PLEASE would ONE journalist ask her a tough question!!! Watching Palin cook in her kitchen in an expensive black outfit, FULL over done make up and high heels ?? What a joke. Is she trying to show she is an all American mom?? No all American mom would drag her kids all over like that and remove them from school!
Please MSM, enough of Sarah Palin Stop feeding her narcissism and warped image of herself!

I just can’t believe that there are people out there that can take her seriously as a presidential hopeful for 2012. Someone with her belief systems should never be allowed to lead a military force. I hope that the republicans go through that civil war, where we have the right fringe separate from the fiscal conservatives.

Here’s a great comment that I found in response to Maureen Dowd’s column of today:

“Are you there, God? It’s me, Jennifer. If you are listening, and I know you are, could you please close the door in Sarah Palin’s face — and lock it — and get the media to stop covering her so she will just go away. Please? If you do, I promise not to say mean things about Republicans for a whole week. Thank you. Amen.”

I’m seriously behind on Mudflats threads this week, but…

My thought, when I heard those words come out of Sarah Palin’s mouth, or read them, or whatever (I know I didn’t dream it, ’cause you’re all talking about it!)
was that she really described what she’s does perfectly – PLOWING through the door. Without looking, or thinking.

Go ahead and open the door. Just make sure there’s a really big fall on the other side of it. (That first step is a doozy!)

Nice cartoon, but knowing that Alaskans are familiar with snow, the image that arose when she said “*plow* through the door” was of a large Alaskan snowplow, like thisor even this railroad plow crashing through the house, knocking it down.

A mere chainsaw is more like a “surgical strike”that would leave the house and doorframe intact, which doesn’t seem to capture the more likely effects🙂

IF SP comes down here I am ready with my duct tape and plastic sheeting to seal my doors and windows….no cracks here!
As for plowing, can one use snow machines for such things? Maybe one of their 26 vehicles can do the plowing job for her.
And, where in the world is Bristol? Don’t we get to see the ever expanding baby belly? SP shows off all the rest of those poor misbegotten children. Myabe they are negotiating with one of those medical reality cable channels for exclusive rights to film the birth. That could bring in some cash to help ‘crack the door’.
I am hoping she will fade away as soon as all the TV stations have had a “crack” at her.

Here is my big complaint with Sarah Palin.
—-
Dear Sarh,

Okay, Sarah, I’ll bite that God himself thinks you are so very, very special and that is why he cracks doors for you to plow through. And I’m sure God doesn’t mind that in order to squeeze through those doors you need to deal with shady oil company lobbyists or violate ethics policies or make sweetheart deals to reward your political cronies and donors and personal friends. Heck, what is God for if he can’t reward those he speak directly to?

But Sarah, here is what I really don’t get. Why the heck did God pick you? WHAT EXACTLY DO YOU BRING TO THE TABLE?????? What agenda is God picking you to fulfill?
—-

This is what I never hear Sarah Palin tell us. What ideology does she represent? What is her world view? How can she help this country? Heck, we know it isn’t through any deep knowlege of important issues, simple geography or even a basic understanding of how the government works.

I personally am tired of hearing Sarah Palin is the new face of anything. SHE REPRESENTS NOTHING BUT HERSELF! She has never expressed her ideology, her world view or her stance on any issue at all.

If her world view is dictated by this very personal relationship with God, then I think I’m not the only one who want details on what exactly this view is.

What I really believe is that her world view besides being shockingly uneducated, overly simplistic and completely ill-formed is also quite radical and would probably shock even some of her most fervent base.

Let Sarah keep talking, but please, could someone please just ask her even one question that tells us something about her? Please?????

You realize everything we really know about how Sarah Palin thinks or feels about important issues we never heard from her.

She can’t go away until she has buried herself completely once and for all. We can’t look away until she does that–in part because this has been traumatic and we need some kind of resolution.

As for her voice from God: don’t you see? Obama won so that she could run in 2012, because if she had been 1st on the ticket she would’ve won, of course. This is how a narcissistic sociopath gets divine guidance–mold and shape reality to suit your basest desires.

I’ve been unfortunate enough to know a Sarah in my past. Trust me, protecting the door isn’t enough. Seal the window, keep a fire lit at all times in the grate lest she comes down the chimney, and even then she’ll turn into a noxious miasma and penetrate the very walls themselves. She must be stopped. She will be stopped but it won’t be quick or easy.

She’s not a barracuda, nor a pit bull. She’s a succubus.

From time to time, her name is mentioned in an interview, but nothing…and I did check the GOP website, just out of curiousity I wanted to see what they think, I did that a few days ago, there was one thing mentiong SP as a speaker for the upcomding gov. convention, then there was nothing there at all, and there was a small message to congratulate Obama and BIden.

As for the door, I think only for entertainment purposes, but the people arent amused anymore it seems to be only in disgust.

As for Alaska, I think it really puts us on the map as a place where our leaders dont know anything, even in SP’s interview with Matt Lauer (spelling?) she didnt say ANYTHING, she didnt even mention one thing about a publication or magazine or news media she reads. All she told him was “Katie Couric ” annoyed me. But still …no mention about an answer to the question, what do you read. All she said was, of course I read. I was so irritated that she dodged the question, when it happened and said, you know Alaska isnt some foreign… place or.. some place way out there we are a part of the US. (not her exact words) but im guessing, using broken incomplete sentences.

In all the media I have followed the election, I have heard no follow up stories. I read the NY times, and the one thing i noticed about the media in Anchorage (because I did check) is that they were more credible down here, the NY times, and CNN and yahoo news even… explained the story TRUTHFULLY, when SP was found to not have violated ethics code, but they also mentioned IT CONTRADICTS the first investigation and this second one is appointed by SP, and one source says, it was appointed by the Gov. I think she didnt like that at all.

The whole troopergate story, brought out several things, the most important comment is, if this lady is a step away from being president , I dont feel comfortable knowing her husband has access to her office. So, they lost alot of votes…. there were a handful of women who “considered” voting for them, till these stories came out.

Just so you all will know. I was worried though when they published the map of the white house. hmmmm

As for Gods will, and the crack. OY,

do you think this is her real calling?

Palin’s sense of entitlement knows no bounds. Please fill me in, Alaskans: what is the precedent for an Alaskan governor to have their main office in Anchorage? I thought the capital of AK was Juneau . . . and I’m trying to figure out why there isn’t outrage that she isn’t living in a permanent home in Juneau right now.

Also, did anyone else catch the comment she made in (I think) the ADN interview at her home? She was asked about the possibility that she might be offered a job at Fox news, and would she be interested in that? She smiled, and then said, “Oh, but that would mean that I would have to leave Alaska . . . ” HOLD THE PHONE!!! When John McCain asked her to be his running mate

A large percentage of the voting public indicated they did not think you were prepared for the role of Vice President, or if need be, President. Do you think this is just a perception problem, or do you take seriously the notion that you need to advance your education and understanding about a wide variety of issues? In either case, what specific plans do you have now to help voters feel more comfortable about you, should you have the opportunity to seek a national political position in the future?

Another thing, Im Democrat and I am Pro life. But, I also dont believe we should make this an issue. I support Obamas take on this issue, he explained it so well.

When I was a republican LONG AGO, I used to get involved and I can honestly say I think we were brainwashed.

Changing my views and switching parties… Im still able to go to church, and have my belief’s but they arent so narrow minded like this and sadly there are so many who are like this,,who will vote on this issue alone. They need to hear what is important. What I dont get is all the ethics issues is this what their church wants us to accept? Talk about a narrow mind if you cant even read on the other issues.

As for the book, I wouldnt even spend one thin penny on that! I never voted and will NEVER vote for her or buy her books.

Biden looks like he has a good book out Promises to keep and Im already reading the Audicity of hope by Obama.

About the pro-life movement…

Someone upthread said she suspecter her friend voted for Sarah strictly because she was pro-life. But in 4 years, it is very likely that Obama will have replaced at LEAST two Supreme Court justices. This is going to put the reversal of Roe v Wade out of the question for at least 20 years or so (depending on how many Obama replaces and their ages.) So electing a Pro-life President will be virtually meaningless. I read that they were going to increase picketing clinics and “grassroots” efforts. But Roe v Wade will be safe for awhile, so I can’t imagine that abortion will be a huge issue in 12 or even 16.

A TRUE STORY

I just opened my mail at work. I am a life long Democrat. Imagine my surprise to get a letter with the seal of Alaska and the return address of “Office of the Governor of Alaska.” Inside is a cheery letter “signed with warm regards by “Sarah” and a card for me to return if I want a FREE guide to Alaska. There is even a picture of Governor Palin included.

The odd think about the chatty letter from “Sarah” is that she talks about “…camping, fishing, clamming, hunting, hiking” Shouldn’t it be spelled “…campin, fishin, clammin, huntin, hikin” ?

Actually, there is a great idea. I should take a week off of work and fly many time zones north and west to go clammin in the mudflats of Alaska. Hmmm, works for me. I am sold. I am flying my wife and kids with me to go clammin in the mudflats over the Christmas holidays.

Also, she signed it “With Warm Regards” Who is she kidding. Alaska is the first place that comes to my mind when I think of freezing my a*s off. Nothing warm about that.

No, it will not be quick or easy – not with someone so narcissistic. Don’t forget, in the end their behavior is really a survival mechanism – which means there is an enormous amount of raw power behind it.

Here in Europe, the expert advice when you happen to have a boss with these kind of disorders is simply: find another job! Should you try to fight them, chances are very high it will only backfire to yourself. Yes, justice exists – but in these cases only in the very end. Research shows that in companies, they usually do a lot of damage before they finally are being stopped.

Talk about a missed opportunity for even a semi-smart governor. What if she had blown back into Alaska a week ago with all her new lower 48 “glamour” and actually set about bein’ the reformer she sez she is — if she had got off the campaign plane and right away looked into all those camera and said “I’m rollin’ up my sleeves in a new spirit of bipartisan back-to-basics, starting with lightin’ a fire under the Alaska Board of Elections to get the vote counted in a timely way, fer heaven’s sakes.” “If I can’t do it in Washington, you betcha we’re gonna do it here.”
That you could respect, That’s a new leader for the GOP. It doesn’t matter if she could actually DO anything — it was a moment to walk the talk. But all she’s done since she’s been back is identify the Pipedream to Nowhere as the gubernatorial priority, and whip up moose hot dogs for every sorry media outlet that can find their way to her Todd-built kitchen while she whines about giving god another chance to anoint her once she plows thru some metaphorical door.

One of the things that is so stomach churning and spine chilling about people who have the I am chosen, I am destined, I am with God and God is with me attitude is that you virtually never hear them acknowledge that if those statements are accurate for them, that they are accurate for others as well, even others that they don’t personally like or want to be given goodies by “their” God.

You don’t hear Palin, or Bush acknowledging that God has chosen other people to receive certain gifts or opportunities and praising God for a gimmie, that they wanted for themselves, but God chose to give else where. Or that God just bared their entrance to something they really wanted. God didn’t just not open the door to McCain and Palin, he picked them up by the scruff of their necks and threw them out the barroom doors into the street and a pile of warmed over horse pucky.
Assuming Palin’s premise, God opened wide the doors to Obama and Biden, so she should be praising God and hallelujahing all over the place for them.

Incidently I assume that Palin is getting paid for all these appearances, in at least 5 and 6 figure amounts. She’s certainly rushing through those doors.

Do not misunderestimate our gal. Remember her goal: she just needs to get 1/2 of the independents on her side. For 2012 her handlers will build a web-based army on the Obama model that will engage her base deeply and mobilize their ground game.

Pat, Washingonton state

When I was looking through some of the Palin family photos from early in her announcement as VP, and there is one of Bristol holding Trig with Levi sitting next to them, and kissing Trig on the forhead. It’s the kind of love a family shows an infant, but as others have said, it’s not something you ever see from Todd or Sarah. They know how to have babies, they just don’t know how to raise children.

I also caught the way Sarah jumped in when Piper was saying how hard it was to be away from her friends and to make up the school work she had missed. I really gave the Palins too much credit. I assumed, apparently wrongly, that they would have had a tutor along with them so Piper could keep up with her school work. And yes, in most schools, missing that much school would automatically mean that a child would need to repeat the grade. There must have been someone in Wasilla that would have taken Piper in for the duration of the campaign so she could stay in school. And what about Willow?

Oh, one more thing about Piper in those heels. Aren’t those the ones that Sarah wore when she returned to Alaska that AKM pointed out as being so inappropriate for the weather? Well, at least they are getting some honest use as dress-up shoes, but Piper, honey – take them off before you carry around your brother.

They have never dragged the daughters or granddaughters around like props.

My husband was so struck by Michelle the other day, as we watched the Obama’s get out of their car and join the Bushes at the White House.

I think someone asked above if you could use a snowmachine/ snowmobile for plowing. The answer is that it wouldn’t be a great idea, because the treads need snow to turn on. And if you’re pushing all the snow out of the way, then there’s nothing for the treads to grip. If you run them on bare ground/ pavement, they wear out pretty quickly. That said, I guess you could probably rig some kind of hanging-off-the-side-plow, if you really wanted to. But why would you want to?

I can’t believe this long-time lurker is coming out of the woodwork on this topic…after all that’s gone down. Anyway –

Am I the only one who has the sneaking dread that SP is trying to somehow rid herself of Trig? Her behavior as she neared delivery was irresponsible and certainly not indicative of someone who wanted a positive outcome to the pregnancy. Someone mentioned earlier about the possibility of Piper dropping the baby, since she’s so small herself (and teetering around on high heels). Maybe that’s part of the plan. Maybe it’s not even a conscious decision. Maybe Sarah and the Dud – down deep in their twisted psyches – want the worst to happen.

A blogger from Pitts just posted that they received a letter:

Office of the Governor of Alaska.” Inside is a cheery letter “signed with warm regards by “Sarah” and a card for me to return if I want a FREE guide to Alaska. There is even a picture of Governor Palin included.

OH BOY………….LOOKS LIKE SHE’S STARTING HER NATIONAL CAMPAIGN ON THE ALASKA TAXPAYERS $$$$$$$. WHAT A CON ARTIST!!!!!!!!

I think there is something in the ethics act about using your position to solicit votes, etc., but sending out Hiya come on up to AK packets can’t be considered pandering for votes, right? But the Division of Tourism better have a BIG budget for the next few years for all the new people Sarah will be contacting personally. I think this whole thing STINKS!!! She’s obviously trying to keep her face out there and using state money to do it. B.S.!!!

Here in Europe, the expert advice when you happen to have a boss with these kind of disorders is simply: find another job!

****************************************

I only got rid of my “Sarah” when I moved to the other side of the country. I was totally up front with this woman from the get-go. I told her I didn’t like her; I didn’t want to have anything to do with her; nothing fazed her or kept her away.

I just saw the video last night–I don’t remember which interview it was–when Sarah butted in and called Piper “sister”. I have read opinions on the use of “sister”, but it struck me that the manner in which it was said it sounded like a “be quiet and agree with me or else” code word. Piper’s immediate capitulation seemed to back up my gut feeling.

Whether it was the word “sister,” or the tone in Sarah’s voice or something else, Piper capitulated and knew she could no longer voice her own opinions. She must be pretty cowed. Neither of my kids would have put up with those long campaign speeches. They would have made too much trouble for me to have along on something like that–on purpose to get out of it. My kids had minds of their own and both would have known that school was more important and friends more fun and stood up for it.

My suggestion for the junk mail is to send “thanks but no thanks” messages multiple times for each one she sends. Or even multiple requests for literature. clog up the email accounts and servers, and have the dept of tourism sending out loads and loads of brochures.

I submitted this email to the Larry King show:

Sarah Palin seems to have a sense of entitlement where her family is concerned. Because she’s a wife, mother…woman…does that entitle her to bill Alaskans and the RNC as a package deal for all her family’s expenses? Does she plan on paying back any of the money that she billed the taxpayers for frivoulous airfares and exquisite lodging for her children?

She recently commented that the elite media didn’t bother to find out who the mother of Trig really is…and claimed she released her medical records. She released a two-page doctor’s note at the eleventh hour…..hours before the polls opened. Why? If she really wanted to dispel the rumors of the child’s birth she would have released them early on.

Please ask followup questions when her stories just don’t make sense…so far no one but Katie and Charlie have had the b*lls to press her for clarification. She keeps getting away with her assinine explanations.

Jesus says “Knock and it shall be opened”

There are as many ways to interpret the bible as there are people so I am as likely wrong in my interpretation as I am likely to be close to correct.

My take on that is that if you knock on God’s door he will open it. In other words God will take you to him if you just ask. You don’t have to kill dragons, or climb snow capped mounts or swim croc infested waters. All you have to do is want God and he will open the door to righteousness for you.

But Palin sounds like she believes God will give her earthly goodies if she knocks.

Either way neither Palin nor Bush effects me the same way as a person who is truly imbued with peace and grace. I am sure all of you have known someone who is like that.
That kind of person, one who is truly at peace, doesn’t have to keep telling other people how much they relate to God, they don’t have to. To me that is where the concept of the halo came from. Some people glow, they are radiant.

She says if she were egotisitcal she could name herself to Stevens seat…but she’s not…unless it is acknowledged ‘up there’ that she could be useful in that seat….she doesn’t want to close any doors….if you Alaskans think you need her in a different capacity..what a dance she’s doing…LOL

SP is killing my “BUZZ” …

Bear with me on my ramblings here. I would like to know if others feel likewise.

Twice now, Sarah has entered into my life at a most inopportune time.
1. Right after the Obama convention speech and
2, Right after the Obama presidential win.

No time to savor the experience.

Now don’t get me wrong, when she was announced, I told some friends that I thought she was fresh, appealing (to many), and a real roll of the dice that would upset the apple cart in many ways. Someone that *could* appeal to *some* women and a lot of men. (Sadly, not everyone looks as closely at skills as the audience here does)

I feared her appeal the most the day she was announced.

Unfortunately at some level I was correct and she sucked out much of the oxygen associated with the wonderful closing event of the Democratic Convention. And for that, I was bummed out.

Now, “… there she goes again …”. After the Obama/Biden win, we don’t get even a week to relish the progress it implies or to celebrate the “victory” in preparation to move forward, without her once again “sucking out much of the oxygen” of the moment.

Of course much of this is the “fault” of the media. I cannot fully blame her for “taking advantage of” the “opportunity. No matter what I think of her politics or “readiness”.

Is it just me or is anyone else feeling this way.

Re: Atwater

I watched most of the PBS Atwater program last night. I really wanted to stay to the end because I really wanted to see him sick and dying, but I just couldn’t stand it.

One observation, though: he and Bush Jr (who seemed to be very special friends, indeed) were defintely on cocaine or meth. At some points when Atwater was performing on stage, playing guitar, he looked like Dennis Hopper in “Blue Velvet.” And Bush Jr had that white-all-around-the-pupil stare of being under the influcene of some sort of an upper.

It was gratifying to see that Atwater turned on Rollins and stabbed him in the back. Rollins played big role in empowering Atwater. Since he was so willing to aid the plague called Atwater, it’s nice to see that Rollins suffered the effects.

[[[I believe that CNN should be put on alert for airing this interview…..this is the same talk that the Secret Service warned us increased treats against Obama. As a matter fact, SP should be arrested for putting our future President in DANGER!!!!!]]]

IMPORTANT: If you truly believe that her statements might incite violence against the president elect, call the Secret Service’s local office, right now. The number for your local field office should be under “Government Listings” “United States Government” or similar headings.

During the 2000 election and post-election debacle in Florida, there were so many violent posts on freerepublic.com boards that a small group of us, on shifts, would read the posts.

There was a lot of impotent chest-pounding buffoonery, of course, but I found two series of posts that I found worrisome enough to call the SS and report it. I had to walk them through finding the posts, but in both instances, before the poster was kicked off the site, they posted that the SS had contacted them.

So they do take it seriously, and we should, too.

When I get home I will watch the program and, if it is inciting violence against Obama, I will be on the phone to the SS in 2 seconds flat.

When you call them, give them specific quotes, stick to that particular interview and its contents, with mention of her previous pattern of such comments. In other words, stay foused and realize that if you sound like you are out to get Palin, it won’t help anybody but perhaps Palin.

I think we all need to calm down and put SP in the box where she belongs. There is still a bit of a frenzy/fallout from this recent election with the Repugs scurring to save face and find the “fresh voice” in their failing party. Who do they have to showcase at the moment? Jendal? Not too many up and coming young voices in their party worth listening to – and unfortunately, SP is one of the few.

Since SP is virtually all that the Repugs have to hold up their party for the moment – let ’em have at it. She will spin herself out of favor soon enough with her double speak and acrid tone. She will soon be pissing in the wind and she will be the one that’s all wet.

There have been many comments on this earlier but I feel the need to comment on this as well.

Growing up in a family where the elders and the youth “looked after” the toddlers, I can relate to the younger siblings being close to the new baby.

BUT … two things bother me.

1. The amount of time that Piper is the sibling handling Trig(?)
2. The way SP holds this child.

Of course it is none of my business but it seems that the 7 year old is spending more time taking care of the child that probably needs EXTRA parental care at this stage than one might expect. This is not a comment about either child but about BOTH parents! If the elder daughter was the one we saw more of then I would not have such a feeling.

And how a child is held does not mean how much a child is cared about or how much the child is loved, BUT … something just does not feel right. Others here have made the “sack of potatoes” comment and I had a similar thought. Maybe it is an Alaskan thing and I just don’t understand. (I doubt it)

Again, I am not one to try to guess how much either parent loves their child. It is just that I get a “not so good” feeling when I see it. It is only perception and is really not my business but I felt I could air this here. Again to me it is a reflection of something about the parents. Hmmm …

I will probably regret that I posted these thoughts but decided I had held them long enough.

I’ve been listening to Sarah on Wolf Blitzer’s show on CNN and am now exhausted. Trying to sort through all the miscellansous words to make sense out what she says is a lot of work. I want to take a nap now. I think I sill skip the Larry King Interview tonight.

But, she is very, very misleading. she claims that she will not be so egotistical (her words) to appoint herself senator if Stevens is kicked out because of his “4” (her words) felonies. She knows damn well that there would have to be a special election. She alluded to that, but did not make that clear to Wolf. Does this woman ever say a straightforward truthful statement?

JC, I share your feelings and your concern.

I’ve looked at an awful lot of pictures over the last few months, pictures of SP’s family and OB’s family and JM’s family and JB’s family. I am a mother of three, and I can see, in the faces, of OB and JB, something very real and very loving and very compassionate. But I don’t see that at all in the pictures of the families of the other two…

And as a mother myself, I am appalled at the absence of family love/emotion in the Palin clan. The elder son was disconnected. The eldest daughter is half-embarrassed and half-dizzy, but disconnected. The middle daughter is rebellious and disconnected. The youngest daughter is scared and disconnected. The baby has no chance to achieve even his limited potential, given the way he is passed around to anyone whose arms are not currently tired of holding him. The husband is interested in only 2 things: winning snow machine races, and sharing whatever office his wife waltzes into.

Sad, so very very sad to see this…

Palin acts as if her kids are a duty and a burden. Maybe she truly feels that they’re a gift from God, but it isn’t a gift she cherishes. What she wants is the power, and these gifts get in the way. Perhaps she needs to remind herself where Christians say all power resides.
The reason she had to parade her kids around on stage was to convince people she is a good parent and loves her kids (convince herself, too.) If she really loved them, like the Obamas do, then it would be evident to anybody looking at the candid photos and she wouldn’t have to do the mommy act. It’s really sad when someone feels that way about their kids.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

–Look at my fellow conservatives! There they go, glumly shuffling along, depressed by the election aftermath. Not me. I’m virtually euphoric. Don’t get me wrong. I’m not thrilled with America ‘s flirtation with neo socialism. But there’s a massive silver lining in those magical clouds that lofted Barak Obama to the Presidency. For today, without a shred of intellectually legitimate opposition, I can loudly proclaim to America : The Era of White Guilt is over.

This seemingly impossible event occurred because the vast majority of white Americans didn’t give a fluff about skin color, and enthusiastically pulled the voting lever for a black man. Not just any black man. A very liberal black man who spent his early career race-hustling banks, praying in a racist church for 20 years, and actively worked with America-hating domestic terrorists. Wow! Some resume! Yet they made Barak Obama their leader. Therefore, as of Nov 4th, 2008, white guilt is dead.

For over a century, the millstone of white guilt hung around our necks, retribution for slave-owning predecessors. In the 60s, American liberals began yanking that millstone while sticking a fork in the eye of black Americans, exacerbating the racial divide to extort a socialist solution. But if a black man can become President, exactly what significant barrier is left? The election of Barak Obama absolutely destroys the entire validation of liberal white guilt. The dragon is hereby slain.

So today, I’m feeling a little “uppity,” if you will. >From this day forward, my tolerance level for having my skin color hustled is now exactly ZERO. And it’s time to clean house. No more Reverend Wright’s “God Damn America ,” Al Sharpton’s Church of Perpetual Victimization , or Jesse Jackson’s rainbow racism. Cornell West? You’re a fraud. Go home. All those “black studies” programs that taught kids to hate whitey? You must now thank Whitey. And I want that on the final.

Congressional Black Caucus? Irrelevant. Maxine Waters? Shut up. ACORN? Outlawed. Black Panthers? Go home and pet your kitty. Black separatists? Find another nation that offers better dreams. Go ahead. I’m waiting.

Gangsta rappers? Start praising America . Begin with the Pledge of Allegiance. And please…no more ebonics. Speak English, and who knows where you might end up? Oh, yeah…pull up your pants. Your underwear is showing. You look stupid.

To those Eurosnots who forged entire careers hating America ? I’m still waiting for the first black French President.

And let me offer an equal opportunity whupping. I’ve always despised lazy white people. Now, I can talk smack about lazy black people. You’re poor because you quit school, did drugs, had three kids with three different fathers, and refuse to work. So when you plop your Colt 45-swilling, Oprah watchin’ butt on the couch and complain “Da Man is keepin’ me down,” allow me to inform you: Da Man is now black. You have no excuses.

No more quotas. No more handouts. No more stealing my money because someone’s great-great-great-great grandparents suffered actual pain and misery at the hands of people I have no relation to, and personally revile.

It’s time to toss that massive, obsolete race-hustle machine upon the heap of the other stupid 60s ideas. Drag it over there, by wife swapping, next to dope-smoking. Plenty of room right between free love and cop-killing. Careful…don’t trip on streaking. There ya go, don’t be gentle. Just dump it. Wash your hands. It’s filthy.

In fact, Obama’s ascension created a gargantuan irony. How can you sell class envy and American unfairness when you and your black wife went to Ivy League schools, got high-paying jobs, became millionaires, bought a mansion, and got elected President? How unfair is that??? Now, Like a delicious O’Henry tale, Obama’s spread-the-wealth campaign rendered itself moot by it’s own victory! America is officially a meritocracy. Obama’s election has validated American conservatism!

So, listen carefully…Wham!!!

That’s the sound of my foot kicking the door shut on the era of white guilt. The rites have been muttered, the carcass lowered, dirt shoveled, and tombstone erected. White guilt is dead and buried.

However, despite my glee, there’s apparently one small, rabid bastion of American racism remaining. Black Americans voted 96% for Barak Obama. Hmmm. In a color-blind world, shouldn’t that be 50-50? Tonight, every black person should ask forgiveness for their apparent racism and prejudice towards white people. Maybe it’s time to start spreading the guilt around.

Every time we click on a link with her name on it, we give those who count those things reason to want to hear more of her nonsense. Every hit counts in this new world of counting who stands out in the MNM. She wouldn’t be getting any coverage if her numbers weren’t still high and rising. When we stop thinking of her, listening to her and watching others watch her, she will begin to fade away. If she stays high in those numbers of people watching, we’ll continue to see her showing up behind that door…pushing her way into our heads….that’s the only place she can hurts us and only if we let her.

Yeah, they still have other things like gay marriage and war mongering (with my kid, not theirs!) to worry about, but their main purpose in life will have been achieved.

I wish Blitzer would have had some comebacks to Palin’s answers. He asks a good question, she gives a stupid answer, sometimes not even an answer and he asks another question.
That’s why I’d love to see Rachel interview Pain I mean Palin. I think Rachel would not allow all the BS to go on and on and on.

Call me crazy but …

It is not Sarah that I worry about in 2012 or 2016.

Remember, she was **hand picked** by McCain and a few “associates” this time around. Next time she would have to make it through the wringer like Clinton and Obama. There are so many quality candidates out there that will steamroll her long before that time gets here. She is getting airtime now but later, her message will be seen as weak compared to an anticipated much sharper Republican message.

Yet, I hope she stays on the air dividing up the airtime that might be there for someone who might be a stronger candidate.

If she is on a ticket, she is not likely to pull NEW voters. Many of the Republican votes this time around were for the McCain of old and he probably won’t be on the future ticket.

Now, I just wish the media would take a few minutes to ask questions of another person that was on the VP side of the ticket … our man Joe!

p.s. Sorry about my earlier post that was really a repeat of what was said many times by others. I had not had time to “catch up” and it was bugging me.🙂

Silly Sarah is dense, Greta asked her about the $1200 check and she babbles on about the permanent fund check $2000. She doesn’t listen to questions,just likes to hear herself talk, she couldn’t say the $1200 was an energy check was from big oil profits and she was spreading the wealth around!!! Don’t blink Silly Sarah, just keep talking, it makes you look more ignorant every time you open your mouth. An hour after that Greta interview she probably didn’t even know what she said!!! Thats probably what happened with Katy C. and every interview shes had, blah blah blah!!!

Try to think of one politician on the national stage who has self-destructed and made it back whole.

Ted Kennedy kind of did. It took him most of his adult life and his party never put him up for President, and I doublt he would have won had he gotten the nomination. He just has too much negative baggage. And of course his family is stinking rich and politically powerful. (but we won’t mention that part)

I am not worried about the crack in the door, I am worried about the door she has not shut over Ayers.
She mentioned it today with Wolf Blitzer on Cnn and here is Obama ready to be President and she is still going on about his associations with terrorists.
I feel that is still something dangerous to be vomiting with those who wish Obama harm.

Way back when – in August or early September – seems so long ago- I read in a couple of places – like probably in Mudflats – that the judge in the divorce thing admonished both parents (Wooten and ex) and families (Palins) to stop bad mouthing each other it could harm the children.

Talking trash and making up lies so she can talk more trash is a Sarah Palin thing. She is what, when I lived in the South, we in the South call White Trash.
That pejorative is applicable regardless of income level. Trash is Trash.

If she keeps it up, the SS might just go and have a little chat with Mz Palin. They could start the monolog with “Sister, we want a word with you …..” Question is if they do, since her mouth is not connected to her brain, can she find a cork big enough to plug it, and what will happen to the build up of toxic gasses behind it.

Damn….she’s only got two modes…ATTACK…SUCK….ATTACK…SUCK….ATTACK…SUCK!

How nice of her to offer to “help” Obama with energy and special needs children in his administration (should he need her.) I’m in disbelief – did she not get the memo that she didn’t get the VP job?

As a mother of a 6 & 7 year old who commutes 2-3 hours per day, I struggle with constant guilt that I’m not there enough for my kids even though I pick them up by 6 and assist with homework. Does she not think she owes any responsibility to helping those kids be all that they can be? Egads…I feel sorry for those children especially the youngest.

Took a break but still lurking daily to check the election up there. I just had to add that my eight-year-old daughter commented to me that she doesn’t think SP holds her baby right. This is not something we really mentioned in front of her with so many other more pressing things to talk about in the news, but it sure says a lot that a child noticed and did not approve. Sarah, are you smarter than a third grader? SP wants to be on TV, she could have a game show. I just keep covering my ears and chanting “make her go away”. Love the chainsaw AKM!

I know I’m going goofy, but Sarah with her drive and ambition and self-righteousness scares me. She’s dangerous and want power.

Can you envision a half hour show with an intelligent woman, Rachel or who ever, interviewing Palin and just re-asking the same question over and over until Sarah answered it. It could run out the whole thirty minutes and make the Guinness Book of World Records for longest recorded drivel in human history.

On the other hand a converstaion over coffee with her and Michelle discussing their kids and their hubbies work could be very amusing.

Palin leaves door open for possible Senate Run (god help us)….

The following from the Huffington Post:

“Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin said Wednesday she would consider serving in the Senate if God gave her the opportunity and Alaskans wanted her to take the job. The state’s senior senator, Republican Ted Stevens, held a dwindling lead as the count resumed in his re-election bid…………

……..Palin, who was the GOP vice presidential nominee, has two years left on her term as governor. She told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer on Wednesday that she wants to serve her constituents the best she can. “At this point it is as governor,” she said.

“Now if something shifted dramatically and if it were, if it were acknowledged up there that I could be put to better use for my state in the U.S. Senate, I would certainly consider that but that would take a special election and everything else,” she said. “I am not one to appoint myself or a member of my family to take the place of any vacancy.”

Pressed in a separate interview with CNN’s Larry King about whether she would serve out her term as governor, Palin said, “I will do what the people of Alaska want me to do.”

She added, however, “if they call an audible on me, and if they say they want me in another position, I’m going to do it. … My life is in God’s hands. If he’s got doors open for me, that I believe are in our state’s best interest, the nation’s best interest, I’m going to go through those doors.”

While she was on the GOP ticket, Palin put aside questions about Stevens’ Senate seat.”

Could we brick over that door? My cousin is a brick layer, I’m sure he’d be happy to come up and brick it up!

Funny, any door God has ever opened for me always seemed to have been thrown WIDE open – so far open that I couldn’t miss it! Maybe Palin needs to reconsider her interpretation of what God offers as an open door and what her own desires and greed are directing her to do.

Anyone ever notice that everything that she says reads like a 13 year-old girl’s Myspace Blog? Not that I’m trying to disrespect 13 year-old girls, but I’ve noticed this with just about everything that your trophy governor says as well as from some of the writers–Katheryn Lopez in particular–at once respectable publications like National Review.

Pat Buchanan once wrote that Mayor Berry’s repeated election, even after his coke busts, was proof that Washington, D.C. wasn’t fit for democracy. Looking at Mrs. Palin and the possible majority that voted for a convicted felon, one is almost tempted to ask how much of Alaska is fit for democracy.

You have to booby-trap the door, no bricks or heavy dresser is strong enough. lol At any rate, keep up the good work here.

Last post, I swear… But a simple request:
Andrew Sullivan has been documenting “The Odd Lies of Sarah Palin”, something like 1-30 or whatever she’s up to now. Could you maybe make a central repository for stuff like this so that when Mrs. Palin tries to foist herself on us again some years from now, we’ll have a resource at the ready?

In re the sack of potatoes thing.
Bare with me a bit. I’ll try to be as short as I can.

In the early 80’s or late 70’s there was a study of the development of babies and mothers. It filmed from overhead, mothers changing their baby’s diaper. Watching the same “couples” over and over they realized that there was a quite complicated pax de deux between psychologically healthy mothers and their babies. Arm, hands and for babies leg movements were actually coordinated, not random, head movements, eye contact, facial expressions of the baby and vocalization between the two were as well. This coordination of movements and reactions began developing in early infancy.
It did not develop between schizophrenic mothers and their babies, movements never became coordinated between the two, there was no dance.

Combine this with the comments in Mudflats from a special needs child’s mother that DS babies do not have the muscle coordination of normal babies (one of many reasons for the Palins to stay home and learn to take care of their child). A developmentally challenged child will also not learn to “dance” with their parent, like the babies did with their mothers in the study, as that part of the brain is absent or slow to develop.
And obviously a 7 year old can’t hold a baby like an adult and shouldn’t be carrying the child around anyway.

Your instincts are right that it just doesn’t look right when they carry Trig. You are used to recognizing a very subtle but meaningful communication/coordination between adult and infant. That lack, with the Palins, is probably a combination of their failure to learn how to best care for Trig and the result of his own genetic damage, both in that his muscle control is retarded and that he has less ability to read the parent and develop the dance with them.

My personal opinion, the Palins will ignore Trig’s special needs until it is too late in the early development of his brain to really be able to impact his development in a positive way.

SP reminds me of a babydoll I had as a child one with a string in the back that you pulled to make it repeat about 5 phrases. I being so fascinated that it spoke, I would pull the string over and over and over again — until an adult would take soon it away from me.

>>What’s up with calling your 8 year old sister?<<

My ex-sister-in-law, (who became quite the evangelical religious fanatic as she got older), used to call my niece (her daughter) “sister”. Especially when she got angry with her. It always made me uncomfortable…the menacing tone she used, and the scared look on my niece’s face whenever her mother snapped, ‘you’d better mind your manners, sister.’

Could be why my niece flew the coop as soon as she turned 18, and why that woman is my EX-sister -in-law.

Sarah Palin reminds me of her, albeit not as harpy-like. As for that door she wants to “plow through”?

Electrify it.

You know, watching the very scary Stepford Governor on the news shows, I see that she is a megalomaniac. She is completely unbowed by anything that does not serve her agenda. She blithely ignores a Legislative inquiry that concludes the violate the states’ ethics laws. She doggedly insists that the taxpayers are going to continue to pay to fly her kids to watch her man race snowmobiles. She is going to go right on cadging invitations for her kids to go to events that have no public need for her children to be in attendance and to let the taxpayers pay for it. She has done nothing wrong. She is fearless. If god opens a door, even a crack, she will plow right through it.

She is absolutely fearless.

I think she is the perfect heir to George W. Bush. Watch the Repugs drain Obama’s presidentcy like they did Clinton’s, watch them gear up for 2012 and beyond.

I don’t think McCain ever had a serious shot at winning this year. I think the dark forces behind the Repugs knew that. I think she forced McCain to run with Palin so get her launch started. Nobody thought McCain would win. . .

Sarah is the perfect Manchurian Candidate for the dark side.

Did anyone notice in the Greta interview that when Greta referred to an “anonymous source” that insisted the stories about Palin were NOT true, that she was an absolute angel, she was not a diva, and all she ever asked for was a diet soda – – Palin had no objections to responding to that “anonymous source” – where was her defensive stance from a few days before where she was saying she would not respond to “anonymous sources”, that they were “mean-spirited cowards” spreading lies about her.

If she refuses to comment on anonymous sources, shouldn’t that be across the board? Shouldn’t she have told Greta that she does not respond if the person does not give their name?

Not if the “anonymous source” is saying nice things about her, I guess.

Now, here is a woman who really sticks to her guns, huh?

[…] Also from Sarah Palin: “You know, I have — faith is a very big part of my life. And putting my life in my creator’s hands — this is what I always do. I’m like, OK, God, if there is an open door for me somewhere, this is what I always pray, I’m like, don’t let me miss the open door. Show me where the open door is. Even if it’s cracked up a little bit, maybe I’ll plow right on through that and maybe prematurely plow through it, but don’t let me miss an open door. And if there is an open door in ‘12 or four years later, and if it is something that is going to be good for my family, for my state, for my nation, an opportunity for me, then I’ll plow through that door.” (Source) […]

Why is she still in the news cycle? Go home Sarah YOU LOST. Why these wingnuts are now pushing for her to run in ’12? A lot can happen in 4 years.

Could she get a Masters in public Policy in 4 years? Sure, but that’s doubtful she will.

though to be fair there was a movement to draft Gore.

All I can say is the only abuse of power our Gov did was dip his wick. He was caught and he did the honorable thing. Sarah’s been dipping hers in oil and so many ‘gates it would make a fencemaker jealous and yet you still have not recalled her. Seriously, get the boots on the ground and toss her ass back to Idaho!!!!!

I hate to say this but this is what happens when you let stupid people vote. They pick stupid people to represent them. And as Beelzebub my former prof in Religious Studies said “You will never find a born again in the Harvard Prof list.” The theory of Democracy is great but you need to think what it really means. Stupid People can vote.

As for Sarah, if she like ever gets past the like cycle going on in her own like head perhaps we like could let her play with the Barbie Make-up Case. It’s like a pretty pink. And for Gawd sake will someone give her a Speech 101 class… Like she needs it.

That woman is a good representation of what gives the gender bad names. And my sister would vote for her… Of course I do need to point out that my sister was kicked by the cow when she was 4 years old. She verified it herself as did my Mother so that explains a lot in her case.

Sarah? There is no excuse for that. She reminds me every day why Atheism is good.
