Tweet Follow me Man, enough is enough.  I applaud the Draft Palin movement for their work, but a little more vetting was in order.  She’s got the VP role wrong , yet again.  On Fox News, which gave her a pass because it doesn’t want a smart Black President Obama over a not so with it White President or VP (or maybe they don’t know themselves), she said this :   “Well, they’ve got to be exclusively, of course, concentrating on the administrative side of governance...

Tweet Follow me If you regularly check out my blogs or videos, you may remember my interview with Steve Stoll, who was presented in a Salon website article on “Sarah Palin’s Right Wing Mentors ” as a member of the John Birch Society. Well, when I created a blog post with the Salon article as a base , Stoll saw it on Google and — having pretty much had it with this Salon article getting repeated all over the place online (just Google “Steve Stoll palin “) —...

Tweet Follow me Watch Alaska Governor Sarah Palin get booed at the Philly Flyers’ opener.   This was a total mistake, having her drop the first puck.  But the Philly Flyers’ owner had this wild and stupid idea, and apparently no one talked him out of it.   ...

Tweet Follow me French movie star bombshell Brigette Bardot lowered the PR boom on Alaska Governor Sarah Palin.  The screen legend said that Palin..  was a disgrace to women. “I hope you lose these elections because that would be a victory for the world,” Bardot wrote in an open letter to Republican John McCain’s running mate in the November vote. “By denying the responsibility of man in global warming, by advocating gun rights and making statements that are disconcertingly stupid,...

Tweet Follow me The growing perception that Alaska Governor and GOP VP hopeful Sarah Palin has her own ethics problems is fed by stories like this one. According to the Washington Post, Palin is being sued by a Republican Alaska activist Andree McLeod for her use of private email accounts for public business. Here’s the detail: In a lawsuit filed in Alaska Superior Court, a Republican activist seeks to force Gov. Sarah Palin to produce copies of official correspondence she sent and received on private e-mail...

Tweet Follow me Newsweek has an excellent article on “The Palin Problem” which the mag sees as that in representing “Joe Six Pack” is it good or right for the person seeking high public office to be “like average Americans.?” The other problem I have is that I view Joe Six Pack as racist. More on that, later. ...

Tweet Follow me Let’s try a little hypothetical situation: You’re standing on a riverbank and you see more and more people who appear to be trying to get out of the river, but they’re tired and can’t swim to shore so they’re being swept on out to sea. Do you go upstream and figure out why they’re all in the river, or blame the policies of the Bush~Cheney Administration, or ignore the cause and hope sound-bites on the 6:00 news will make it clear that you’re not pointing...

Tweet Follow me Senator and Democratic VP Candidate Joe Biden basically ate Governor and GOP VP Candidate Sarah Palin alive at the “first and only” Vice Presidential Debate. I had the pleasure of watching the debate at a special event held by The Bay Area Democrats at the offices of McKinsey and Company in the Bank of America building in San Francisco. I will share video of the impressions of viewers, but my firs take is that Palin came in with well presented canned lines that more often than not did...

Tweet Follow me Did Governor Palin’s performance change the outcome of the election? Almost certainly not, though she probably did succeed in getting the attention back on Senator McCain. Her answers were obviously much less spontaneous, and accordingly less substantive, less revealing, and generally less related to the questions Gwen Ifill posed. In fact, the debate may have been overshadowed by the revelation that the McCain campaign has written off Michigan, and will even continue running ads there. Both...

Tweet Follow me You’ve just got to see this video to get the idea that Governor Sarah Palin sometimes doesn’t think about what she’s saying. If we make it out of this election in one piece, Palin will become a permanent Saturday Night Live skit ...

Tweet Follow me This new article by Kathleen Parker is getting some traction around the web.  She — a conservative writer and commentator — openly calls for Alaska Governor Sarah Palin to step down. She gives the call, and her reasons for it, in this blistering collection of paragraphs: As we’ve seen and heard more from John McCain’s running mate, it is increasingly clear that Palin is a problem. Quick study or not, she doesn’t know enough about economics and foreign policy to make Americans...

Tweet Follow me And now we’re bracing for the newest NBC News / Wall Street Journal poll to come out at 3:30 PM PST, which according to Andrew Sullivan , will show that while 40 percent think Gov. Sarah Palin is qualified to be vice president, 49 percent don’t think so. ...

Tweet Follow me Well, so much for the ridiculous spin about the Alaska Air National Guard being foreign policy experience for Gov. Sarah Palin because First Lady Laura Bush just laid that to rest with this statement :  “Of course she doesn’t have that. You know, that’s not been her role,” she continued, “But I think she is a very quick study, and fortunately John McCain does have that sort of experience.” That flies in the face of the McCain campaign’s...

Tweet Follow me The whiners that the McCain staff is comprised of got a wish from their grossing and hand-wringing over the upcoming debate GOP Vice Presidential Candidate Gov. Sarah Palin has with Democratic VP Candidate Senator Joe Biden. Concerned that a “free-wheeling” debate format would allow the far more experienced Joe Biden to chew the very inexperienced Palin, the McCain staffers whined for and got an easier format for her. ...

Tweet Follow me Last Tuesday I issued a video which broke a promise I made that I would not cover Governor Palin’s family. But “Kevin”, who claimed to be the real father of Bristol Palin’s still unborn child, had a story I felt should see the light of day, even if it was proved wrong. Kevin wrote to me and others that he had evidence to support his claim and that he would present it on September 11th. Well, he did not. Instead Kevin created a video on that Friday which essentially said it...

Tweet Follow me That slogan “McCain/Palin – Unstable and Unable” came from this sign at the Anchorage, Alaska rally of women against Sarah Palin as Vice President; an event that drew over 1,400 people. ...

Tweet Follow me In a stunning move that points to the number of political enemies Alaska’s Governor Sarah Palin may have created for herself in her less-than-two-years as Governor of that state, the Alaska Legislature voted to Subpoena her husband Todd in the ongoing investigation of her possible abuse of power in the firing of the public safety director of the State of Alaska. The event was not without its colorful events: Sen. Charlie Huggins, a Republican from Palin’s hometown of Wasilla,...

Tweet Follow me Palin Charged Rape Victims For Tests As Mayor of Wasilla, Alaska This Frontiersman article written while Alaska Governor Sarah Palin was Mayor of Wasilla has to be read to be believed: Published on Monday, May 22, 2000 9:00 PM  ANCHORAGE – Gov. Tony Knowles recently signed legislation protecting victims of sexual assault from being billed for tests to collect evidence of the crime, but one local police chief said the new law will further burden taxpayers. The governor signed House...

Tweet Follow me Folks, the lies and tall tales told by Alaska Governor and GOP VP Candidate Sarah Palin have grown bigger and bigger.  But this one’s huge.  And I mean to the tune of nearly one billion dollars. According to the Associated Press, Palin has requested $750 million in earmarks during her short terms as Alaska’s Governor.  For just 670,000 people in that state, that comes to $1,119 for each Alaska Resident. Earlier, I looked at this from a “per-day” perspective and...

Tweet Follow me I love this. It’s as if John McCain really did get BarackRoll’d at the Republican National Convention. It stands to reason that Sarah Palin’s next. ...
