McCain Endorses Obama’s Energy Plan – A Mathematical Proof.

19 10 2008

Yes, I think I can prove this mathematically.  And it’s not that complicated.  Follow along.

If a = b, and b = c, then a = c.

No one is arguing right?  Next step.  Let’s define our variables.

a = John McCain said that “Sarah Palin knows more about energy than probably anyone else in the United States of America.”

b = Palin likes the Obama energy plan, as evidenced by the following press release in the news archives of the State of Alaska’s official website from August 4, 2008, mere weeks before Palin was tapped to be McCain’s running mate.

Palin Pleased with Obama’s Energy Plan
Includes Alaska’s Natural Gas Reserves
August 4, 2008, Fairbanks, Alaska – Governor Sarah Palin today responded to the energy plan put forward by the presumptive Democratic nominee for President, Illinois Senator Barack Obama.

“I am pleased to see Senator Obama acknowledge the huge potential Alaska’s natural gas reserves represent in terms of clean energy and sound jobs,” Governor Palin said. “The steps taken by the Alaska State Legislature this past week demonstrate that we are ready, willing and able to supply the energy our nation needs.”

In a speech given in Lansing, Michigan, Senator Obama called for the completion of the Alaska natural gas pipeline, stating, “Over the next five years, we should also lease more of the National Petroleum Reserve in Alaska for oil and gas production. And we should also tap more of our substantial natural gas reserves and work with the Canadian government to finally build the Alaska natural gas pipeline, delivering clean natural gas and creating good jobs in the process.”

Governor Palin also acknowledged the Senator’s proposal to offer $1,000 rebates to those struggling with the high cost of energy.

“We in Alaska feel that crunch and are taking steps to address it right here at home,” Governor Palin said. “This is a tool that must be on the table to buy us time until our long-term energy plans can be put into place. We have already enjoyed the support of Alaska Senator Ted Stevens, and it is gratifying to see Senator Obama get on board.”

c = Obama’s energy plan.

If McCain (a) chose Palin in part because of her knowledge on energy, and if Palin (b)  is on board with Obama’s energy plan, then McCain (a) must be on board with Obama’s (c) energy plan.

That was easy.  Next!

Sarah Palin and Her Juneau Neighbors Support Obama!

The Governor's Mansion in Juneau, Alaska

An anonymous Mudflatter in Juneau was taking an evening walk past the Governor’s mansion, found the following political sign in the yard, and sent it to Mudflats for all to enjoy!

Presumably, the Governor herself is not an Obama supporter….however, it looks like quite a few of her neighbors are. The following images were passed on by a different Junea Mudflatter. I’ve circled the Obama signs, and pointed with a red arrow at the Governor’s mansion. Looks like Juneau is ready for change!

Saturday, all these Obama supporters in Alaska’s capitol will have an opportunity to make their voices heard! And in a “sensitive climate” where state workers are plentiful, participants are encouraged to wear their best Halloween disguises!





Palin Praises Obama’s Energy Plan!?!

11 09 2008

Unbelievable! Check out this press release from Governor Sarah Palin’s office.

Fairbanks, Alaska – Governor Sarah Palin today responded to the energy plan put forward by the presumptive Democratic nominee for President, Illinois Senator Barack Obama.

“I am pleased to see Senator Obama acknowledge the huge potential Alaska’s natural gas reserves represent in terms of clean energy and sound jobs,” Governor Palin said. “The steps taken by the Alaska State Legislature this past week demonstrate that we are ready, willing and able to supply the energy our nation needs.”

Wow. I am floored. I mean, Palin has been bashing Obama mercilessly. She’s not only belittled him, she’s even mocked community organizers during her snarky finger-pointing stump speeches. And now she’s gratified and pleased at his policy proposals?? Why the turnaround? What could possibly have happened?

Oh…wait.

(palms on face)

I’m sorry everyone. I am SO embarrased. This press release was issued LAST month.
