About Sarah Palin. I’m Sorry to Have to Break the News…

23 11 2008

palin-celeb

I’m sorry.  I don’t know how to break it to all of you in the lower 49, and the rest of the world…  We here in Alaska have known from Day 2 (on Day 1 we were too much in shock to think), that Sarah Palin was never going to go away for us.  Win or lose, we would be branded with a big “SP” on our flank for all time.  No longer would people hear we were from Alaska, and react with, “Wow.  Is it cold?  Is it dark 6 months out of the year?  What do you do up there in the winter?  Do you need a passport?  Is crab cheap?”  We knew from the beginning we’d be forced to answer questions about Sarah Palin for the rest of our lives.

But you….you outsiders didn’t know.  And we didn’t know either, that despite losing the race for Vice President….and in spite of actually causing the loss for the Republican ticket, that you would have to live with her too.  No, people won’t be asking you if you know her, or what Wasilla is really like, or if you see her in the grocery store.  But she will be in your life for a long time to come, like it or not.  (patting you on the back).

Agents from the William Morris Agency and elsewhere, have come knocking. There even has been an offer to host a TV show.

“Tomorrow, Governor Palin could do an interview with any news media on the planet,” said her spokesman, Bill McAllister. “Tomorrow, she could probably sign any one of a dozen book deals. She could start talking to people about a documentary or a movie on her life. That’s the level we are at here.”

Barbara Walters called me. George Stephanopoulos called me,” McAllister said. “I’ve had multiple conversations with producers for Oprah, Letterman, Leno and ‘The Daily Show.'”

Asked whether Winfrey was pursuing Palin for a sit-down, Michelle McIntyre, a spokeswoman for Winfrey’s Chicago-based Harpo Productions Inc., said she was “unable to confirm any future plans” for the show.

John McCain plucked Palin out of relative obscurity in late August and put her on the national GOP ticket. Now, she has to decide how and where to spend her time, which could have implications for her political future and her bank account, with possible land mines of legal and ethical rules.

Ethics shmethics.  That’s never stopped her before!  Is that a crack in the door? (running start, slamming shoulder into door…)  OOPH!  (rubs shoulder and tries again)  ….OOOPH! (rolls up sleeves backs up and gives it one more try) ~~~~~~AAAAAAAAAA!!!!  OOOOOPH!  (Door splinters and comes off hinge.  She kicks it in with her shiny red pump and straightens her jacket.  Steps over threshold, brushing off palms.)  “I knew it was God’s plan!”

Palin is considering about 800 requests for appearances from December through 2009, with 75 percent coming from out of state. A year ago, just a sprinkle of requests came from beyond Alaska’s borders. They range from invitations to speak at The Chief Executives’ Club of Boston to attend a 5-year-old’s birthday party, from a prayer breakfast in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, to a business conference in Britain.

And the rest of the country may be seeing more of her than we will.  We’ve been sans Governor for a while now, and there is a great deal of pressure for her to actually….I don’t know…..govern.  But the siren song of the spotlight might just be too tempting for our newest and biggest celebrity.  Her advisors may want her to stick around and work, but she’s been known to go “rogue” before.

While books and movie deals could be worth millions of dollars, it’s not clear if Palin would be able to legally earn it. State rules say she cannot accept outside employment for compensation. But there appears to be little in the way of precedent left by former governors to judge if book deals or lucrative speaking appearances amount to “employment.”

OK. (slaps a $20 bill on the table)  Anybody want to bet me that she’s going to suddenly decide that she would be breaking ethics guidelines by accepting a multi-million dollar book deal, and a movie about her life? Anybody?……………….Anybody?

Since the day she appeared, and esp. after her GOP convention speech, it’s been clear that we’ll have her around forever.

The day after the GOP conv. speech, I bet a friend $100 that she’d be the 2012 GOP nominee. Nothing since then has disabused me of the thought I’m going to easily win that bet.

She’s not stupid. Just ignorant. And deeply motivated. She loved the taste of power. Her reactions as she savored the pleasure of whipping up a crowd with smiling attacks on Barack the “terrorist” was fairly S&M.

The woman absolutely makes my flesh crawl. I can’t recall the last time I saw a more self-aggrandizing, ethically challenged, hopelessly inarticulate, and downright ignorant individual pretending to be a national political leader.

I won’t say she’s stupid: she possesses the low cunning of a true grifter. But I wish she’d give up pretending that she’s a national political leader: her entire persona is Entertainment Tonight stuff, which is just about what we’d expect from an ex “beauty queen.”

John McCain has earned my eternal enmity for opening Pandora’s Box so that this vapid harpie could flitter around the national stage, never to leave, apparently.

Do you think so? She hasn’t seemed to be that concerned for the last few months…

The Devine Miss P will have to decide between the job she was elected to (the electorate is getting surly) or go for the money. I have a feeling there are do-gooders lurking in the woods, waiting to file another complaint. If she resigns, she can kiss a higher office good-bye; hard to sell her as a good candidate if she quits for talk shows-

Employment. hmmm Well there are lots of ways to make money, and employment is just one of them.
I think she’ll find a loophole. She won’t actually write a book for cash.
(Awww big disappointment to you literary fans. )
She’ll donate her time to a ghost writer. She’ll sell the rights to her story.
She could even speak for free, but her agent Todd charges one hefty booking fee.

Nope she’ll skate on this one, until the FBI comes knocking, maybe, someday …

I’ve been sorta lurking here through the GE, and this was the first time I figured I had to post… Well, ok beg!

Please, please, can’t any of you like wrestle her down while she’s at the grocery store in her new digs, break off her stiletto heals and just like hold her hostage in a basement or somewhere for about a year or three? Please? From the lower 49, I’m sincerely begging here! I was SO glad to think for a while there that we were going to be rid of her, until I heard she wanted to give her own speech at McCain’s concession speech.

Anyways, you guys have really interesting politics. So I pop on here a couple times a week to see what’s going on… I can’t believe I missed the Turkey Gate! Ah well, please think about the begging thing, we’d be forever grateful down here 🙂

Glad you de-lurked! We’re doing our best… And don’t worry about missing turkey-gate. I have a feeling it will live forever… AKM

Actually, I think(??) I hope she just keeps at it. Other than for her core supporters, everyone else is way tired of her and I think the harder she runs this early, she will continue to wear out her welcome.

It also shows me she continues to lack the introspection to realize that what she REALLY needs ( as many have said ) is to get out of the spotlight and do some serious reading and study. This would allow her to actually improve her weaknesses and become a much more formidable candidate. I hope she does NOT do that. And seeing her eagerness to continue to be just Sarah I see little indication that she will come back any more informed 4 years from now. That’s good news for anyone who opposes her.

If she plans to make a lot of money from a book, she better hurry and make up her mind. The tell all books from the staff will be hitting the stands soon. Then her book will just be about the gotcha media and the gotcha staff and gotcha guys like Colin Powell. Meghan Mc Cain wrote a children’s book about her Dad -maybe she’s ready to write one for the grown-ups!

Well, bless her heart, bring it on, Sarah. I don’t think her coming here is gonna help Saxby. He’s got a subpoena problem himself with the Imperial Sugar thing. In addition, he has the worst environmental record and a lot of folks are finally figuring out he’s been busy lining his pockets at our expense.

Voter turnout is way up in this runoff, which, to me, doesn’t look good for him.

Catwoman — thanks for link to the ‘get yours now’ Sarah Palin 2009 wall calender. Did you notice the photographer’s credentials ? She was the Vice Mayor of Wasilla during Sarah’s administration ?

What the hell is a Vice Mayor and why would Wasilla need one ? Didn’t Sarah hire a City Administrator to take care of all the business she didn’t want to ?

Heads up about this woman because ‘what you see and what you know are two different things’ as my reptilian bloodline husband informed me once upon a time . . . back when I was young and innocent of the dark
underbelly of this realm . . . Sarah is fast becoming an iconic archetype. . .

Finally ,Sarah’s 15 minutes is up. Sen Clinton has emerged as the new narcissistic darling of the media. Bloggers are having a hey-day and for once, hardly a mention of Sarah. We all knew that Hillary could never be out of the spotlight (esp for the likes of Sarah) and is now stealing her headlines. Hopefully Oprah and ilk will rethink their positions and pass on this. Sarah was good for a laugh but it’s getting stale. When you recall and/or convict her,that will be news. Poor Hillary…SOS or senate…what should I do..more drama than Sarah and for sure a better read.

Lance the Boil aka Crust Scramble

Tate has subpoenaed Chambliss to testify in his civil lawsuit against the refinery’s management, but the senator has resisted the subpoena, saying he is protected from testifying by the Constitution’s speech or debate clause. Tate said Chambliss is resisting the subpoena because he knows that if voters view him as “a hack for foreign corporations against Georgia residents and citizens in the worst industrial disaster in our history, they’ll throw him out.”

Seems like we’re always harking back to the legality of subpoenas. Well, the way I see it, if they’re good enough for me, they’re good enough for them. Where’s the bench warrant?

oooh…I’m not a bettin’ Mudpuppy, but thanks for the warning, AKM. So I can get rid of the vision of future Palin horror, I’m going back to my Stephen King novel.

I still believe there is a chance she’ll flame out (fingers crossed) like Joe the Pooper is right now. His book is a joke. But, it will be interesting to hear what numbers end up buying her future book (we know she can’t write, so someone else is penning it I’m sure) and how many view her creepy show appearances.

Here’s hopping Palin fizzles. Ethics and Palin (coughs…sputters) not

There was a time when I thought that this fine, informative blog would soon fade away after the election and how disappointing that prospect would be for the dedicated regulars and the host.

However, I underestimated the staying star power of Ms. Palin; she is pure fool’s gold. I do not understand her appeal to my Republican family members or other Republicans, because I am a longtime registered Republican and I loathe the broad.

AKM, if Palin’s Northern Star ever fades, dims, or burns out, or perhaps before that, you should consider a career in politics. From your prose and reasoning alone, you are much more qualified than Ms. Palin at any level of Alaskan politics. I do mean that as a genuine compliment.

What I can’t understand is how Palin became anything, my daughter has a friend that is brain dead like Palin and I sit and think She could be another Palin. Yet I know it’s impossible. I’ve been wondering, is Palin just a front. Is someone else the power and she’s the puppet, first Dude don’t seem to intelligent, so it’s not him. Someone is being Governor and it sure isn’t her.
There is a Shadow Governor and it’s not the Dude and it sure isn’t Sarah.

National GOP Groups Accuse Crime Victim Of Being Soft On Crime In Georgia
By Eric Kleefeld – November 22, 2008, 9:01PM
Now this is really something. The NRSC and Freedom’s Watch are now airing ads in the Georgia Senate runoff accusing Democratic candidate Jim Martin of being against cracking down on people who abuse and prey on children.

The problem: Martin’s own daughter was abducted when she was eight years old. Fortunately, she was returned safely. When asked for comment by Election Central, the NRSC declined to comment on this little wrinkle in the story

Kinda remind anyone of Dole or Bachmann shananigans (sp)

Maybe you should start selling “Where’s Sarah?” buttons & tshirts in the Mudflats Gear shop? I’d buy one!

I keep waiting for Palin’s star to wane, but she seems to have her shiny red pump firmly planted in the zeitgeist. So much so that when I started my fledgling blog (Six Characters in Search of a Blogger) 2 weeks ago, my first post was about the Governor: “Sarah Palin Goes to Disney World!” And she has been popping up in obscure references ever since. The woman is like a bad song that I can’t get out of my head.

The link is http://www.sixcharactersblog.com/

If things keep going this way, maybe she’ll end up with her own theme park in Wasilla–where you can put lipstick on a pig, dress up in expensive clothes and have your pictures taken, shoot virtual wolves from a helicopter, field dress a moose…oh, the possibilities are endless.

I can’t imagine that Oprah would have anything to do with her. SP stands for everything that Oprah is against: fear, anger, hatred, racism. Also, Oprah’s guests usually have something interesting to say; that leaves SP out. Naw, Oprah won’t have her.

Could Cheney just invite her to go hunting already? Jeeeez, if Gray Davis could be recalled in CA, couldn’t Alaska just nail her for all the BS from her 2 years in office?

If she weren’t “young and pretty” with help from 150K worth of clothes and 22K worth of makeup application, no one would be talking with her. Ever.

It’s like fingernails on the chalkboard, ALL THE TIME! It’s driving me crazy, and I don’t even live there.

But, as AKMuckraker said in an earlier post, I do have a lot to be thankful for her screwups that helped us get a great, new, competent leader who speaks English in complete, cogent sentences.

Hmm-mmm… Choices. Sarah Palin’s choices….

Delayed vs. Instant Gratification
Long Range Goals vs. Short Term Gain
The Opportunity to Serve this Great Nation [i.e., taking the straight and narrow high road (Sh-hh! Stop laughing!) by actually working to remake herself into one worthy of the Office to which she aspires]
vs. Instant Stardom (and its accompanying fame, a**kissers, $$$ and wardrobe)

AKM, put away your money. Sarah’s gonna do what Sarah’s ALWAYS done. She gonna do whatever she wants, ’til the courts tell her she can’t (and then she’ll look you right in the eye and swear they acquitted her!)

She’ll stay Governor, because that 7 mountain thingy wants her to rise to power. She’ll be shadowed by a new outsider ‘aide’ who’ll do nothing but scribble furiously in a series of notebooks, until the mumbling and suspicious eyeing of shrubbery begins. (I predict a minimum of 3 of these aides. The 2nd one will begin drinking heavily. The 3rd will be scary beyond belief.) Tina Fey will move to France. Sarah will personally write the first screenplay, and fire the first 4 directors. Then she’ll hire Todd to direct instead, since all those left-wing liberal directors just up and quit on her, also too.

When filming begins (because, hey! That movie-makin’ industry is a great source of income for the great state of ALASka!) she’ll….

Oh, jeeze…. do I REALLY need to go on? Sarah will be Sarah. Now I must go and soothe myself with maybe just a lil’ bit of Ben and Jerry. (*sigh*)

Im putting my two cents on Sarah Palin dissing the state of Alaska like a bad habit. Look at her record, she has paid someone to do her duties as Mayor and as Governor. Taking those positions were only attractive because they put her in the spotlight, not because she was looking out for the best interest of the Alaskan people. Now that she has had a taste of the “world’s center stage”, you think she is not going to go back to the anonymity of “Governor”. No, she is ambitious, full of greed and a seeker of the spotlight. She feels like Midas and that everything she touches will turn into gold and that along the way she will be a star in the eyes of the world. This egotistcal woman is going to drop Alaska in a flash and go for door number 3. So, it would behoove us to stop this woman in her tracks and help put her behind the prison door that will be cracked open for her after we get her convicted of all of her “Gates” and she can plow right on through that door where she belongs.

I simply CANNOT understand how she can justify this continued politically-based travel outside of Alaska…..or even video interviews that are clearly self-promoting and partisan. Going to campaign in Georgia for Chambliss?–you’ve got to be kidding me! Is that “Guv work” for the state of Alaska? Is helping to elect a Repug in GA promoting the best interests of the people of Alaska?

This has to stop. If she’s allowed to continue with these trips, interviews, books, etc., she’ll just keep pushing the envelope until someone calls her on it. She needs to be called on it now. As someone said before – dereliction of duty.

Alaska to the rest of the U.S. (not).

AKM – I can live with whatever. I can always turn off the tv.

I can NOT read a book.

What I am most Thankful for this week — is that come January, she and her family will NOT be moving into Blair House.

Having her as Vice President of the United States, I could not TURN OFF.

Having her on the boob tube seems appropriate.

People who watch Sarah Palin — for any reason — are the same people who slow down to rubberneck a wreck on the freeway. Morbid curiousity.

10 Republicans who should go away
2. Sarah Palin
Former Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin is the poster child of vacuous Republican imagery – hollow, loud and crass with no discernable talents other than an ability to attract stupid middle American house wives. Palin exploded onto the scene as John McCain’s campaign started to wither, only for the ‘Hockey Mom’ to be exposed as a know nothing fraud. Claiming that Russia’s visibility to Alaskans gave her foreign policy credentials and using sentences that even ‘Dubya’ would cringe at sealed her fate, plummeting McCain’s campaign into the unelectable abyss. Unfortunately, Palin is doing the rounds on the media circuit, pumping her stardom for all its worth and priming herself for a run in 2012. The last thing America needs is another Bush style Republican, and Palin would represent that, but much, much worse.

If you don’t see your favorite on the website, just read the comments.

Another weird thing about Saxby Chabbliss’s tv ads is that in trying to portray Miller as voting for tax hikes (one, they say as much as 150%), they show a picture of Obama in the background, so at first it actually looks like an ad for the Democrats!

Honestly, I still don’t think there’s anybody too smart or savvy behind Palin; I think it’s still just the Palins and their high school friends.

All of her PR is quite amateurish and I don’t think it’s deliberately so (e.g. to appeal to the unwashed masses). I Look, even with the big bucks (and the RNC fashionistas & stylistas) behind her, she still seemed like “Wasilla hillbilly” to most of us. And the turkey pardon footage just proved it again.

I’m amazed that you hate Palin so much. Of course she is a neo con lackey, but I mean, hey! You’re blog probably went from no hits to an ungodly amount over night just because of her.

Did Palin cost the GOP the ticket? Of course not, that’s obivously wrong across the board. What cost the GOP the ticket was an economic turndown caused by Carter and Clinton’s damnable Community Reinvestment Act. Add to that 8 years of Bush and a lackluster ticket (John McCain…really? That’s like Obama-lite) and you have a recipe that brings one inexperienced, supreme statist to the office of dictator-in-chief.

The One, indeed.

Well first, I do not hate Sarah Palin. I disagree with her most of the time, and I think she is not qualified to govern my state, nevermind the nation. I think her ethics are fuzzy, her world view is non-existent, and her judgment is poor.

Second, I did not start this blog to “get lots of hits”. I would much prefer to have typed my one post a day in obscurity, than have needed to address these issues. I love my readers, but in the grand scheme of things, I wish that Palin had remained unknown to national politics. The popularity of this blog since August 29, was the result of people needing to find out information about Sarah Palin because John McCain never vetted her. His horrifying choice and complete lack of judgment showed his true colors. I know many Republicans who did not vote for him because of Palin – her obvious lack of qualifications, her fanatical religious views, her fiscal irresponsibility, and more. 45% of Republicans who did not vote for McCain sited Palin as the reason….because they saw through him.

Country First, indeed.

I just keep thinking of that oriental guy from American Idol that everyone knew could not sing but he put out a CD anyway. Now, Palin might be a book deal if someone writes it for her. And she might get an ad campaign if the sponsors want to loose buyers like McCain lost vote. But…who…in their right solid mind… would ask that woman to be a talk show host? Just proves again that fact is funnier than fiction. It is really just a product of a Paris Hilton country. I am not terribly sure what she does either!! ~~Dee

Now, I know this will sound heretical, but what’s the big deal about her signing a book deal or appearing on a talk show or two? Despite her dullard’s stupidity and her position as governor, she still has 1st Amendment rights. The problem, as I see it, is that if she goes galivanting off to too many far away places too often, that her position as governor becomes essentially an illegal no-show job.

Besides, who is going to do her um tell all? Kitty Kelly? How soon before the Jon Stewart version comes out?

I, too, hope she stays in Alaska. And, for those of us in the lower 48, I truly hope she is nothing more than a side show, occasional talk show guest, and butt of Letterman/Leno monologs.

I also wrote about her potential candidacy in 2012. That’s another scary spectre. But, if the party is stupid enough to put her forth as their candidate, the result will be much the same as 2008.

What constitutes “compensation”? I’ve often wondered.

Who is watching the costs associated, and who is paying? I just don’t trust the SHE GUV, nor her minions to keep things straight.

I personally feel that Sarah Palin has been a vital proponent to the Conservative movement, and to the American political scene in general. Why? Because, like Obama, she has the ability to connect with people in a way that few in Washington can, and this helps engage them in what is going on in our country. A democracy is only as good as those who participate in it, so the more people who can be rallied to make themselves heard, the better the counry will be in the end. Is Sarah Palin inexperienced? Perhaps. Are her religious and political leanings somewhat radical? Maybe so. But the same can be said for Obama in one respect or another.

So many will NOT miss what Ms.Palin presented to the US public no matter what happens in this world. She does not represent the Americans who were disgusted by her rousing the prejudiced and potentially violent without care, raking in the masses with the highly addictive crossroads of instant celebrity and power and righteousness. You and I and many Americans watched and witnessed her separate and isolate the crowds of adoring fans who lived in the “real” part of America, blatantly spread fear among the ignorant with gossip and rumor, and ignore the anger and pure hatred she helped to plant and water and lovingly watch grow in strength in her attempt to reach and grow HER base. She lowered herself and never came back up. I lost any respect I could have had for her as a person while you and I and many Americans witnessed her gather her army of the faithful with these appallingly juvenile tactics of rumor mill and high school gossip used again and again. The crowd at a Roman gladiator pit was easily visualized watching some of these rallies across the US, videos easily seen and accessed all over the internet. I don’t need someone in the highest office of my country ruthlessly setting up impenetrable barbed wired lines of division and prejudism than already sadly exist here.

McCain lost the vote for the Republican ticket; not Palin. McCain lost the vote because he’s not a true conservative; he’s a moderate at best with no conviction to stand up for what he believes other than this country (which is a good quality trait, yes, but not a strong enough to stand on its own). As an independent who carefully studies both sides of the spectrum, Palin is far from dumb. If you think she won’t be at least a nominee for the ticket in 2012, you are too far removed from Political Science.

And that old saying, the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree isn’t always true. Sometimes there’s a really strong wind that blows that apple away…and in Texas, you know what they say. If a flagpole is being torn from the earth, then it’s just a light breeze.

What I’d said is that perhaps a few of those who wanted Palin to keep on in the political arena are fellow liberals who see her as destructive to the conservative cause. I certainly do think she’s one of the factors that cost McCain the election. Although I probably wouldn’t have voted for him, he plunged in my opinion after selecting her as his running mate.

OH, horrors! She is campaigning for Chambliss on the eve of the runoff! I sure hope Barack goes down there on the same day- it would be a runoff o a different kind and one that I am sure he would win!

Please make calls, give money, do whatever you can to make sure that Jim Marting gets elected!

I think if justice had only done their job right in convicting Palin of abusing her power in the troopergate case instead of allowing her to get away with it she wouldn’t even have a future to stardom. We wouldn’t even have to hear about this woman for a very long time after both her and McCain lost the election. But because justice failed to do their job right and let corrupt pple like her and Steven to get away with abusing power they end up sticking around for a very long time.

Besides, the news media shouldn’t even give this woman the center of attention to start up her political career. I really don’t think she deserves to be in the political spotlight at all especially when there are far more experience pple out there who’s much better than she is and at least has a brain to think.
