Yesterday I did a very brave thing

I logged onto the Sea of Pee website and spammed them!

This is what I wrote (about 18 times according to a bot over there):

Sarah is full of crap.  Don't you idoits know she is just grifting you?  She doesn't want to be president.  She wants you to want her to be president.  Just like that Cheap Trick song, "I Want You To Want Me".  And Cheap Trick suits her well.

And this was the idiot's responses:

AZZwipe, troll, you fear Sarah this much you have posted the same crap 18 FREAKIN times. Are you deranged enough to think we look at you as anything other than a bedwetter who fears you. In honor of you cow dung, I'm going to donate $5 to sarahpac.com for every one of you posts. For your 1 year old brain that's $90.. I'll keep giving $5 for every other post you make. Your fear tells me that Sarah is winning. By the way, Sarah thanks you for the $90. donation.
  
Mods, please ban this POS troll. I can almost smell it's reek coming through my monitor. 

Things must really be going well for Governor Palin! 

You can tell school's out for the kiddies are bored and want to play grownup but lack the aptitude and maturity to hang here. Come back when you hit high school and your voice changes, in the mean time go clean up your basement bedroom.


Yeah, she does suck all of the oxygen out of the room. You, on the contrary, just suck. See the difference. 

Yes spamming is wrong but it's fun!  And I might do it again.

Not many people showed up for Bristol and Sarah's book signing

Bristol is going to be signing her fake book today at the Mall of America

From the Mall of America in Bloomington MN

And guess who is going to be there to hold Bristol's hand?  Her mommy Sarah!  Geesh can't Bristol do anything without her mother horning in?  Or maybe Bristol knows she won't get many fans or people coming to protest so she is using mommy as a human shield.  Oh well.

I would love to drive up to Bloomington and protest myself, but I have an actual job unlike the two grifters. So Bristol and Sarah consider yourself lucky there.  Oh and here is a recent pic of Bristol.  She still hasn't lot the pregnancy weight from her 2nd or 3rd child.


And the chin still looks like hell.

On Monday Bristol went on GMA with Robin Roberts and did the only thing she knows how to do, trash Levi and anyone who isn't a Palin or Heath and lie.

I'm ashamed Michele Bachmann is from my birth state AND current home state


Michele you are from Waterloo, you should have known John Wayne Gacy was from there.  Bet you don't know the Sullivan Brothers are from Waterloo.  I'm ashamed of you.  We were both born in Iowa and now live in Minnesota.

I really feel bad for Piper Palin

Piper is dragged by her mother to all her speeches and campaign stops, is never in school, and her vacation got ruined.  But the name that Sarah and Todd gave her has to be the cruelest of all things done to her.

PIPER

INDY 

GRACE

 Piper's first three initials spell PIG.  That's right.  PIG.  Lipstick on a PIG.

Nick Broomfield produces a rebuttal to Sarah's new movie

From UK Mail Online

Sarah Palin will be looking forward to one new documentary coming out next week that’s expected to paint a positive picture of her.

But the ex-Alaska Governor will surely be worried about controversial British film-maker Nick Broomfield’s own film to unveil the ‘real’ Palin.

Mr Broomfield has been speaking to her relatives, friends and disgruntled ex-colleagues to dig up some dirt on her rise to international fame.

Pro-Palin movie ‘Undefeated’ is out Wednesday. But Mr Broomfield will shop his own film in Los Angeles next week, reported Radar Online.

The film to document the politician’s rise from obscurity could even make its première in Canada at the Toronto Film Festival this September.

You can watch the preview here

Damn I can't wait to watch this!  Wish Oliver Stone would make a movie about her.

Reason #73 not to vote for Sarah Palin for anything

While governor of Alaska she tried to control the media.

From Poynter.org

When Sarah Palin was asked in a 2008 CBS interview what newspapers she regularly read, the Vice Presidential candidate famously was unable to name any.

But last week’s release of Palin’s emails from her partial term as Alaska’s governor suggests she was highly aware of what was being written about her — at least in her own state’s newspapers and in local blogs.
Her messages show that Palin sought to influence media coverage, counter negative stories, and — on at least one occasion — investigate a blogger who criticized her.

“She was pretty well tuned in to what was in the paper or on the website that related to her interest,” Anchorage Daily News Executive Editor Patrick Dougherty said in a phone interview this week. “I don’t know if that was because people were calling her attention to things or she was finding them on her own.”

Dougherty recalled that Palin came into office in 2006 with a “great attitude” and made a strong impression in her first meeting with the Daily News editorial board. But by the end of her two and a half years in office, Dougherty said Palin changed significantly, as she became nationally prominent and faced increased scrutiny over her record.

“Whatever impulse she had toward being open and honest was overtaken by her desire to avoid or deflect or rebut criticism,” Dougherty said.

The newly-revealed messages show that the Daily News – Alaska’s largest newspaper — was a particular irritant to Palin and her staff.

For instance, in April 2008, the paper reported that Palin’s office harvested email addresses from a state database to contact more than 22,000 business owners and urge them to support part of Palin’s legislative agenda. A story by Daily News writer Wesley Loy quoted several legislators criticizing Palin’s “political” use of the database.

That prompted a strong response from Palin’s press secretary, Rosanne Hughes. In an email to Palin, Hughes called Loy “an unprofessional, ignorant reporter,” and she recommended that the Governor stop granting him interviews.

“I’m used to working with mean, nasty, ugly, unpleasant journalists before on Capitol Hill (esp. the New York Times) but at least I could respect them professionally,” wrote Hughes, who had previously worked for Republican members of Congress. “At least they were good journalists. This guy, sorry, I can’t say that about him.”

Palin answered with just two words: “Amen sista!

Loy – now a freelance journalist and blogger — said this week he remembered a disagreement with Hughes about the 2008 story. But he didn’t know the article caused such a stir among the governor’s staff until an acquaintance told him about Hughes’ email a few days ago.

I laughed out loud when I saw it,” Loy told me.  “That’s part of the job.”

Concerns about bloggers and reader comments

Of course, it’s not unusual for politicians to tussle with journalists who cover them. The candid correspondence of many officeholders is likely filled with similar invective toward the press.

But Palin’s emails show that she also was conscious of what was being written about her in new media platforms such as blogs.

In a January 2008 exchange with some of her aides, she fretted about an anonymous blogger who seemed to have access to her administration’s press releases and was using them to criticize her policies.

“Makes me sick to my stomach,” Palin wrote. “How would this blogger have received the emailed presser unless he’s a valid media person (and why would a legit media person bother to be a regular blogger?), or one of our folks sent it to him?”

Palin aide Frank Bailey informed her that it would be easy for a “mole” to get on her press release distribution list. “They probably just emailed and asked to get on it,” Bailey wrote. (It’s not clear from the emails if the Administration ever learned the blogger’s identity.)

Later in 2008 – less than two months before she was named John McCain’s running mate — Palin expressed outrage about a reader who frequently posted in the “comments” section of the Anchorage Daily News website. Among the posts that the Governor called “hateful and hurtful” was one that alleged she had an affair with her husband’s best friend.

“Ok dokay (sic) – enough is enough,” Palin wrote to Hughes and other aides. “It’s flippin unbelievable that the ADN allows lies like this to be posted. I’m calling.”

Governor, do you know how loved you are?” Hughes responded. “It hurts my heart to hear these horrible people are bringing you down. We forgive them, Lord. Help these people come to know You.”

Dougherty – the Daily News executive editor – confirmed that Palin called him about the questionable posts and he immediately deleted them.

Palin later asked her staff to have her “security guys check into” the person who posted the comments — Sherry Whitstine of Wasilla. (Whitstine told the New York Times in 2008 that one of Palin’s aides called her and demanded she “stop blogging right now.”)

While Palin and her staff may have been repulsed by some of the coverage and comments they received from the Daily News, they also worked to make sure their own point of view was expressed in the paper and on its website.

During a controversial special legislative session in April 2008, Hughes noted that Palin was “getting pounded” on the blogs, and she urged her fellow staff members to mobilize the Governor’s grassroots supporters.

We need to get them out there FLOODING that Anchorage Daily News Alaska politics blog. I mean FLOODING,” Hughes wrote.

On a somewhat less weighty issue, Palin took matters into her own hands, writing her own rebuttal to a July 2008 Daily News letter-to-the-editor that criticized her for skipping that year’s Miss Alaska pageant.
But she asked her staff to find somebody else to sign her response.
“I’m looking for someone to correct the letter writer’s goofy comments, but don’t want the letter to ADN in response to come from me,” Palin wrote. (The newspaper published the response with Hughes’ signature.)

“A pretty darn good relationship”

In contrast to Palin’s current image as an adversary of what she calls the “lamestream media,” her emails suggest that she often granted press requests as governor. Her schedules show she sometimes did several interviews a week with local reporters, as well as occasional interviews with national media organizations such as NBC, Forbes magazine, and Bloomberg News.

Even Wesley Loy — the former Anchorage Daily News reporter who inspired such strong criticism from Rosanne Hughes — said he found Palin to be accessible and accommodating during her years in Juneau.

“I don’t remember her having anything but a pretty darn good relationship with reporters at the time that she was Governor,” Loy said, adding that he noticed no difference in the way she treated him even after Hughes suggested Palin stop granting him interviews.  “She always gave me all the access I asked for.”

Palin eagerly jumped at a chance to appear on Anderson Cooper’s CNN program in December 2007 (An aide assured her it would be “a great opportunity.”), while in June 2008, she made the rounds of several cable talk shows to discuss oil and gas drilling.

A member of her administration suggested she’d especially enjoy appearing on Glenn Beck’s show, because, “He loves to make fun of everyone and is incredibly good natured.  You should laugh a lot with him.”

And then there was this 2007 request from a producer at “The Big Wild Radio Show,” a syndicated program about outdoor recreation:
“We would like to interview Sarah in regards to her fishing experiences,” wrote producer Jon Schoepke.

“The Big Wild has been in syndication for five years and we pride ourselves in being total screw ups! Unlike most outdoors shows we are NOT experts, we laugh at our shortcomings.”

Palin responded quickly from her Blackberry: “This sounds fun! I’d do it.”

Is she really that paranoid of what people think of her?  Just imagine if she were in the WH and banned every media outlet except for FOX, National Review, WSJ, Newsmax, and News Busters.

Reason #72 not to vote for Sarah Palin for anything

She cancels appearances and trips way too often.

Recently she canceled a trip to Sudan she was supposed to take with Franklin Graham and Greta Van Stusteren.   Which is actually a blessing in disguise for the poor people of Sudan.  Who wants to hear Screechah and her BFFs anyway?

But this isn't the first nor will it be the last time she flakes out on something.  Here is an example.  And another.  Google Sarah Palin cancels speech and you will get over 7 million hits.  If she is this unreliable, how is she fit for the White House?  Or any other office for that matter.

Alaska Dispatch debunks Sarahs claim about jury duty

From the Alaska Dispatch

The first day of the Sarah Palin jury watch passed with this simple recorded message to those called for jury duty: "Your services will not be needed on Friday, June 24.''

Those in the Palmer jury pool, which Palin has indicated include her, are to call back Friday night to find out about "possible service on Monday, June 27.

The former governor lives just up the road from Palmer in the small town of Wasilla, where she was once mayor. Local legal cases, however, are tried at the courthouse in Palmer.

The jury procedure in Alaska is to send jury duty notices to a small army of people. They are given a pool number. If there pool number is called, they are to report to the court house to await possible selection to a jury.

It is rare to get picked, and a half-dozen attorneys queried by Alaska Dispatch said that they would immediately move to waive Palin if she was actually called to sit on a jury.

As one of them put it, no one would want to bring to the courtroom the circus that seems to follow in the wake of the former Alaska governor these days.

Palin, however, has said she's putting all her plans on hold for the moment awaiting the jury call. On Facebook -- her favorite means of communication -- she posted that "the coming weeks are tight because civic duty calls (like most everyone else, even former governors get called up for jury duty) and I look forward to doing my part just like every other Alaskan."

Bwahahahahahahaha!  Me thinks the real reason she bailed out is because of this.  The shit is really gonna hit the fan!

Rex Butler gives a half assed attempt to defend Levi

From the Alaska Dispatch

Bristol Palin is not telling the truth when she claims in a new book that her virginity was "stolen'' by boyfriend Levi Johnston, Johnston's attorney said Thursday.

In the just released book, "Not Afraid of Life: My Journey So Far,'' Palin -- the daughter of former Gov. Sarah Palin -- claims she drank so many wine coolers on the night in question that she has no recollection of events, and that she woke the next morning with "something obviously askew'' only to be told by a girlfriend that "you definitely had sex with Levi."

Johnston attorney Rex Butler disagreed with the part of the story that has Bristol so drunk she didn't know what was happening.

"That's obviously not true,'' he said.

Several websites have already raised the question of whether Johnston raped Bristol.

Alaska laws says that "an offender commits the crime of sexual assault in the first degree if...the offender engages in sexual penetration with a person who the offender knows is unaware that a sexual act is being committed."

Sexual assault in the first degree is what is commonly known as rape.

Bristol's book clearly paints her as being "unaware that a sexual act'' was being committed on the night she lost her virginity.

As she tells the story, the last thing she remembers is sitting by a campfire laughing with friends after consuming a lot of wine coolers. The next thing she remembers is waking up in a tent with Levi's empty sleeping bag next to hers and the sound of friends "outside the tent laughing,'' according to the book. She then texts a female friend, who comes to Bristol's tent to inform her she is no longer a virgin.

Butler, one of Alaska's better known criminal attorneys, admitted that if true the story sounds a lot like rape, but he said the story isn't true. And he seemed a little perplexed that Bristol, who had a child with Johnston, would be telling it.

"That's not a good thing for her son to digest on down the road,'' Butler said.

What Bristol's mother, Sarah, thinks of all this is unclear. So far she has only Tweeted, as is her style. Sarah's Twitter message said this:

"Bristol's Book: Shocking; Refreshing; Honest; INSPIRING! Perfect. Plus 'Not Afraid of Life' gives insight into how media can drive false narrative. Spot on! (& she's courageous to write what she wrote, warning about decisions/consequences in encouraging way, esp for teens!)"

It is unclear as what "shocking" references, or whether Sarah thinks Bristol's suggestion that losing ones virginity while being passed out drunk (or at least so drunk you've forgotten the evening) is part of a "warning about decisions/consequences in encouraging way, esp. for teens!"

Butler said that although Bristol lied about her sexual encounter with Levi, he doubts his client has much legal recourse. Johnston, who was injected into the Palin whirlwind after Sara decided to run for vice-president, is now a public figure, Butler said. As such, he couldn't win a defamation suit unless he could prove his ex-girlfriend's statements are malicious.

"I don't think anyone would buy that,'' Butler said. The legal bar there is a high one. To prove Bristol's statement malicious, Butler would have to demonstrate she is telling a story she knows to be false. All Bristol would need to demonstrate is that she is telling a story that is true to the best of her recollection.

On the other, if her story is documentable  -- if there are witnesses who can support the story as her book indicates -- Johnston could find himself the subject of a rape investigation. Alaska Gov. Sean Parnell, Palin's successor, has been a staunch advocate of a state crackdown on men who take advantage of women who are incapacitated. He this year advocated, according to the governor's website, that sentences for sex offenses be increased when there were "'aggravating factors,” including the defendant's knowledge that the victim had consumed drugs or alcohol, or a previous dating relationship with the victim."

The story Bristol is now telling about the loss of her virginity has never been told before. In previous interviews, she has at least hinted that she might have been a willing sexual partner, saying that abstinence from sex is "not realistic at all" for teenagers.

Bristol's premarital, teenage sex first became news during Sarah's run for vice-president alongside Arizona's John McCain. The McCain-Palin campaign at the time disclosed Bristol's pregnancy and portrayed her and Levi as two teenagers in love who were making plans to get married. Levi told the Associated Press that he and Bristol had been planning on getting married for a long time.

There was even talk of a possible White House wedding, but things did not go so well and by 2009, Levi and Bristol had split.

A year later, however, they announced in US Magazine that they once again planned to get married. This time over the objections of Sarah and her husband, Todd.

But that second engagement went bust, too. Since then, they have been on unfriendly terms. Levi is now writing his own book.

Levi you need to ditch Rex and get a better attorney.  If I was living in AK and an attorney I would represent you pro bono.   I seriously think Rex is on the Palin payroll being paid with Sarah Pac funds.  

Bristol was not raped.  If she was why didn't she report it to the police?   You also don't black out on drinking too many wine coolers.  Unless he slipped her a roofie, then yes he did rape her.  Bristol has no credibility at all so I will call bullshit on the rape claim.

Is Sarah Palin a murderer?

Curtis Menard was a school mate and friend of Sarah and Todd's.  Sarah had a big crush on him back in Jr. High when he first moved to town.  Curtis ended up asking another girl to go steady.   However Sarah's crush on him never wavered.  She even wrote about him in Going Rogue:

“For nearly four decades our two families’ lives intertwined like flourishing vines, so much that Curtis Jr. even grew up to be my firstborn’s godfather". (p.24)

“Just before Track was born, Todd and I moved to a small apartment in Wasilla, next door to our good friend Curtis Menard, Jr., who by now was a dentist like his dad. Curtis was like a brother to me. We asked him to be Track’s godfather. Todd and I shared one car, and we loved our little life together, though with the Slope and fishing schedule we still didn’t see each other very much. I wanted another baby right away, so I was excited when I learned I was pregnant again.” (page 55)

In ""Trailblazer" Lorenzo Benet writes about a very heated argument Sarah and Curtis had one day about her parenting skills in 2001.  Shortly after Curtis died in a plane crash, which was caused by water contamination found in his gas tank at his home.  Lorenzo writes about the crash in great detail in his book.

Before Sarah finished her term as mayor, she named the famous hockey complex after Curtis.

There has been speculation that Curtis is the biological father of Track, Sarah's oldest son. Curtis lived in an apartment next door to Sarah and Todd and Todd would be gone for weeks at a time with his North Slope job and the fishing business...enough time for Sarah and Curtis to have a little hanky-panky.

Todd and Sarah married August 29,1988, Track was born April 20, 1989. (ironically Hitler's 100th birthday). So that means Track was conceived in July 1989 and Todd was gone most of that month. Track was a full term baby.

I wonder if Curtis threatened to blow the whistle on Track's paternity during that argument he and Sarah had, and Sarah did something to his gas tanks so his plane would crash.

Then there is Dar Miller.  Dar was a hospice nurse at Mat-Su Regional Care.  She died in a house fire in 2009.   

Dar was from Wasilla and attended the same church as the Palins.  It has been speculated that Dar knew about Trig's real birth and parentage.  A month before the church Dar and the Palins attend also burned in a mysterious fire.  This same church also handles private adoptions.  And Sarah Palin has said she does not believe in coincidences.

Sarah quits her bus tour? SHOCKING!

From Real Clear Politics

Less than a month after she appeared poised to shake up the Republican presidential campaign, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin has once again receded from the 2012 limelight.

When Palin launched her "One Nation" bus tour on Memorial Day amid a swirl of media attention and excitement from her fervent fan base, many political observers who had once dismissed her were reminded of the jolt that her candidacy could provide to what has thus far been a relatively sleepy GOP nominating fight.

As Palin toured historical sites along the East Coast, she was clearly reveling in the tangible excitement she'd ginned up: She even eagerly answered questions -- from the denizens of the "lamestream" media -- ranging from matters of political process to an array of issues facing the nation.

In an apparent repudiation to those who dismissed her trip as a mere publicity stunt, Palin's openness with reporters about her intentions to visit Iowa and South Carolina -- in addition to her highly scrutinized stop in the first-in-the-nation primary state of New Hampshire -- lent credence to her repeated assertions that she was indeed seriously considering a White House bid.

Though Palin and her staff never announced a timeline for the remaining legs of her trip, aides had drafted preliminary itineraries that would have taken her through the Midwest and Southeast at some point this month. But those travel blueprints are now in limbo, RCP has learned, as Palin and her family have reverted to the friendly confines of summertime Alaska, where the skies are currently alight for over 19 hours a day and the Bristol Bay salmon fishing season is nearing its peak.

As Palin enjoys her sojourn to the 49th state, she has not reconnected with key early-state figures like Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad and South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley, and she may have jeopardized whatever political momentum she gained from her recent reemergence in the 2012 discussion. Her political action committee's website still greets visitors with a stale banner, announcing the nationwide bus tour beginning "[t]his Sunday, May 29th."

More than a few of Palin's core supporters have grown impatient and confused about her strategy, venting their frustration on Internet fan sites.

The former governor herself has consented to only one interview since her East Coast jaunt ended early this month, and her lack of recent public activity has generated a host of rumors about what her next step might be. Last week, the American Spectator, citing a single and unnamed Republican source, claimed that her presidential decision was imminent. Palin shot this speculation down immediately, but she didn't counter it with anything definitive.

And earlier this week, some of her staunchest supporters grew concerned about gossip suggesting that she had reached out to Texas Gov. Rick Perry about lending her support to his potential presidential run. But two Perry aides told RCP that they were not aware of any recent contact between Palin and the Texas governor.

Palin's extended hiatus could mean that in spite of her readily apparent "fire in the belly," her family has persuaded her not to further pursue the presidency. Alternatively, it could indicate just the opposite -- that she is plotting her next move and wants to ensure that it is well thought-out -- and that she retains the element of surprise. Indeed, the problem with assessing how Palin's movements figure into her 2012 calculus is that she remains one of the most unpredictable political figures in America -- even to her most trusted aides.

There may be a logical hook for Palin to reassert herself onto the presidential stage: A documentary extolling her record in Alaska, "The Undefeated," is set to premiere in Iowa and other early voting states before its July 15 nationwide release.

And in an indication that Palin's team may be on the verge of more actively associating herself with the film, the pro-Palin website Conservatives4Palin.com reported that SarahPAC Treasurer Tim Crawford recently mailed out a solicitation to Palin supporters that offered an early-release DVD of the film in return for a donation of $100 or more to SarahPAC.

"It is absolutely critical that as many Americans as possible see this film -- and soon," Crawford wrote in the letter. "And it's time for patriots like you and me to stop letting the Palin haters and the national news media distort Sarah's record, especially now as America looks ahead to new leadership in 2012."

During the initial stage of her bus tour three weeks ago, Palin said that it would still be weeks before she would make her presidential decision, and her husband, Todd, concurred that the final verdict was "a long ways away."

The realities inherent in conducting the necessary legwork to mount a viable presidential campaign, even for a candidate as unconventional as Palin, may compel her to move closer to a decision sooner than she might have liked. But for the time being, she appears to be in no rush to either enter the 2012 fray -- or to distance herself from it.

Something fishy here.  I gotta feeling Babygate is about to be exposed so she has to get her shit together to defend herself.

Today is Father's Day and Bristol trashes her baby daddy-Update

From New York Daily News

A cheeky Bristol Palin writes in her new book, due out next week, that her romance with ex-beau Levi Johnston - he of Playgirl fame - was one of "deception and disappointment."

He "cheated on me about as frequently as he sharpened his hockey skates," Palin penned of the bad boy for whom she first fell in seventh grade.

The "Dancing with the Stars" vet goes on to denigrate her former flame as "the gnat named Levi Johnston," in the teenage tell-all, entitled "Not Afraid of Life: My Journey So Far."

Johnston, for his part, has promised to offer his own version of the affair in a rebuttal book: "Deer in the Headlights: My Life in Sarah Palin's Crosshairs."

For now, readers must make do with the comely 20-year-old brunette's account of their sometimes sordid and failed romance.

The tawdry tome includes prurient details of how Johnston deflowered Palin during a camping trip on which she got tanked for the first time.

A pitiful Palin recounts how she awoke, alone, in her tent with no memory of what had transpired, while a joyful Johnston boasted of the conquest on his cell phone to friends.

Palin had previously vowed to wait until marriage, she writes.

In time, Johnston knocked up Palin, who added in the book she was initially so incredulous of positive home pregnancy kits, it took eight tests to convince her she was with child.

The couple eventually had a son named Tripp, born in late 2008.

But soon after, Palin writes she found a text on Johnston's cell phone revealing he once again had strayed.

Johnston later confessed and left the Palin home, persona-non-grata.

The narrative, published by William Morrow, co-written by author Nancy French and obtained on Friday by The Associated Press, also touches on life with the barnstorming ex-Alaska gov.

I smell bullshit on this one.  According to Mercede Bristol and Levi were trying to get pregnant.  Bristol has admitted that abstinence does not work.  And Levi has said Bristol knows that.


In their custody agreement Levi and Bristol are not supposed to trash each other, so this book is living proof that Bristol broke the custody agreement.


And unfortunately thanks to skanky slutty Bristol her son Tripp will not have the pleasure of spending it with his daddy, Levi Keith Johnston.  Thanks Bristol you cunt!  But then again maybe Levi isn't the real father Bristol?


UPDATE-Levi isn't the only one who gets burned in this fiction novel.

From Gawker

Finally, the political-daughter-turned-memoirist smackdown we've been waiting for: Bristol Palin is taking on Meghan McCain.
While promoting memoir Dirty Sexy Politics, Meghan lamented Bristol's effect on her "self-esteem", slammed Bristol's family, and dissed reality TV. Now Bristol's promoting her memoir, and she's striking back. ABC News reports that America's most successful unsuccessful abstinence advocate thinks Meghan McCain is a high-maintenance, backstabbing brat:
Palin writes that the first time she met the 26-year-old daughter of Sen. John McCain, she "ignored us during the entire visit." This was just before Senator McCain introduced Sarah Palin as his running mate. Palin adds that she "had a sneaking suspicion I might need to watch my back."
"Every time we saw Meghan, she seemed to be constantly checking us out, comparing my family to hers and complaining," she writes. "Oh the complaining."
"I'd never seen people with so much Louis Vuitton luggage, so many cell phones, and so many constant helpers to do hair and makeup," Palin writes.
Bristol has kinder words for Cindy McCain, describing her "like a queen" and "like royalty." But she got confused when Cindy offered to be the godmother of her unborn child: "I had just met her and I wondered why she wanted any type of guardianship over my child." Maybe Cindy was trying to rescue a needy infant from a lifetime of squalor? She has a reputation for charity.

Anyway, Meghan has yet to tweet about Bristol. Maybe she's saving her outrage for an opinion column? She can't not respond—flying off the handle at every slight is Meghan's greatest talent. Which, come to think of it, is downright Palinesque.

Geesh Bristol!  Cindy was just offering spiritual guidance to you and the baby.  God knows you could use some.  It's also pretty shitty of you to slam the McCains considering John pulled your mother out of obscurity.  If it wasn't for him you wouldn't be on DWTS, writing fiction books, preaching abstinence, and being on reality shows.  You would still be in Wasilla working at the local Starbucks as a Barista.

Meghan's response to Bristol is right here  Very classy and I don't even like Meghan, even though she is not chickenshit to go on Rachel Maddow's show.

Elizabeth Edwards, Sandra Bullock, and Elin Woods had every reason to trash their hubbies on public but they didn't. Why? Because they have class and care about their kids.

Also Bristol said she and Levi were using condoms but she switched to the pill even though she suspected he was straying. Duh! Didn't she know that the pill does not prevent STD's? That's abstinence only education for ya.



And Bristol goes after her ex-uncle Mike Wooten:

From the Daily Beast

Bristol’s Uncle Mike, a burly state trooper standing six foot four and weighing in at 250 pounds, was the cause of some early drama in her life. First, back in 2003, Bristol witnessed Uncle Mike shoot a Taser gun at her cousin, Payton. As Payton was recovering from the shock, Uncle Mike looked over at Bristol and said, “Bristol, you’re next.” (Pg. 25) Bristol screams, and tells her mother about the incident. Later, it’s revealed that there were a bunch of citizen complaints against Mike, ranging from boozing in his patrol car to people claiming they witnessed him illegally kill an animal on a hunting trip. Later on, Uncle Mike carries out a very public affair with the mother of Bristol’s friend Jenna. The affair results in Bristol’s Aunt Molly divorcing Uncle Mike, Jenna’s mom getting kicked out of the Mormon church, and Bristol losing all her friends, as kids at school chose sides between Bristol’s family and Jenna’s, a la “Team Jolie or Team Aniston.” (Pg. 39) Bristol also thought, “It was the first time—but not the last—that I realized how someone’s sexual sin could rock everyone around him or her.” (Pg. 40) Later, Mike confronts Bristol in the hallway of her high school—where he is an assistant coach—and calls her a “fucking bitch” under his breath. (Pg. 43)

Geoffrey Dunn clears up Troopergate in his book.

She also talks about the alleged threat of gang rape while she was in Juneau.

They began by threatening Bristol and telling her to stay away from their boyfriends, and then, things got serious when some of Bristol’s classmates posted an Internet threat against Willow. “An eight-grade girl told twelve-year-old Willow that her Samoan brothers were going to gang-rape her,” said Bristol. (Pg. 67) Later, a boy posted on MySpace: “Bristol’s a slut when she’s drunk and a slut when she’s sober.” Bristol says these early bullying incidents helped her develop a tough exterior and handle all of the gossip about her family.

BS on that one too.  Sarah never reported the threats to police and didn't increase security for Bristol.  Why?  Cuz you can't report on something that never happened and you would have to justify why you are increasing security for your daughter.

LIAR LIAR PANTS ON FIRE!

Bristol is renting her house out

From Hollywood Gossip

Just six months after dropping $172,000 in cash for a home in Arizona, and just weeks after Sarah Palin reportedly bought her own house in Arizona to keep tabs on her, Bristol Palin is peacing out of the Grand Canyon State.

Bristol's Maricopa, Az., pad is now for rent at $1,400/month if you're interested.

"Yes, it is for rent, but I have no further comment," Bristol Palin tells E! News.

Sarah's eldest daughter will be starring in a new reality show focusing on her making the move to L.A., where she and son Tripp will cohabitate with brothers Kyle and Christopher Massey and work at a charity.

Bristol is reportedly dating Kyle Massey and Sarah Palin is reportedly livid.
The five-bedroom, 3,900-SF pad she purchased back in December went on the market this week, said Nate Martinez of RE/MAX Professionals.

Like the mind of Sarah, it sounds like it's been empty for some time.

"She was living in it, I don't know how long, I didn't sell it to her," Martinez tells E! News. "When I listed the home it was already vacated."

Well, well, well!
Wonder if the money pipeline is drying up.   She's done with Candie's, other than her "reality show" with the Massey brothers and her book which I heard sales have been slow, makes me think she's running out of money.

The most bizarre e-mail ever

Subject Baby

To the Sisters, Brother. Grandparents, Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, and Friends of Trig Paxson Van Palin (or whatever you end up naming him!):

I am blessing you with this surprise baby because I only want the best for you. I've heard your prayers that this baby will be happy and healthy, and I've answered them because I only want the best for you!

I heard your heart when you hinted that another boy would fit best in the Palin family, to round it out and complete that starting five line-up. Though another girl would be so nice, you didn't think you could ask for what you REALLY wanted, but I knew, so I gave you a boy because I only want the best for you!

Then, I put the idea in your hearts that his name should be "Trig", because it's so fitting, with two Norse meanings: *True' and "Brave Victory'. You also have a Bristol Bay relative with that name, so I knew it would be best for you!

Then, I let Trig's mom have an exceptionally comfortable pregnancy so she could enjoy every minute of it, and I even seemed to rush it along so she could wait until near the end to surprise you with the news - that way Piper wouldn't have so long to wait and count down so many days - just like Christmastime when you have to wait, impatiently, for that special day to finally open your gift? (Or the way the Palins look forward to birthday celebrations that go on for three, four day.. you all really like cake.) I know you, I knew you'd be better off with just a short time to wait!

Then, finally, I let Trig's mom and dad find out before he was born that this little boy will truly be a GIFT. They were told in early tests that Trig may provide more challenges, and more joy, than what they ever may have imagined or ever asked for. At first the news seemed unreal and sad and confusing. But I gave Trig's mom and dad lots of time to think about it because they needed lots of time to understand that everything will be OK, in fact, everything will be great, because I only want the best for you!

I've given Trig's mom and dad peace and joy as they wait to meet their new son. I gave them a happy anticipation because they asked me for that. I'll give all of you the same happy anticipation and strength to deal with Trig's challenges, but I won't impose on you.. I just need to know you want to receive my offer to be with all of you and help you everyday to make Trig's life a great one.

This new person in your life can help everyone put things in perspective and bind us together and get everyone focused on what really matters. The baby will expand your world and let you see and feel things you haven't experienced yet. He'll show you what 'true, brave victory" really means as those who love him will think less about self and focus less on what the world tells you is 'normal' or "perfect'. You will grow and be blessed with greater understanding that will be born along with Trig.

Trig will be his dad's little buddy and he'll wear Carhartts while he learns to tinker in the garage. He'll love to be read to, he'll want to play goalie, and he'll steal his mom's heart just like Track, Bristol, Willow and Piper did, And Trig will be the cuddly, innocent, mischievous, dependent little brother that his siblings have been waiting for..in fact Trig will - in some diagnostic ways - always be a mischievous, dependent little brother, because I created him a bit different than a lot of babies born into this world today .

Every child is created special, with awesome purpose and amazing potential. Children are the most precious and promising ingredient in this mixed up world you live in down there on earth. Trig is no different, except he has one extra chromosome. Doctors call it "Down's and Downs kids have challenges, but can bring you much delight and more love than you can ever imaginel Just wait and see, let me prove this, because I only want the best for you!

Some of the rest of the world may not want him, but take comfort in that because the world will not compete for him. Take care of him and he will always be yours! Trig's mom and dad don't want people to focus on the baby's extra chromosome. They're human, so they haven't known how to explain this to people who are so caring and are interested in this new little Alaskan. Sarah and Todd want people to share in the joy of this gift I'm giving to the Palin family, and the greater Alaska family. Many people won't understand..and I understand that. Some will think Trig should not he allowed to be born because they fear a Downs child won't be considered "perfect" in your world. (But tell me, what do you earthlings consider "perfect" or even "normal" anyway? Have you peeked down any grocery store isle, or school hallway, or into your office lunchroom lately? Or considered the odd celebrities you celebrate as "perfect" on Have you noticed I make 'em all shapes and sizes? Believe me, there is no 'perfect"!)

Many people will express sympathy, but you don't want or need that, because Trig will be a joy. You will have to trust me on this. I know it will take time to grasp this and come to accept that I only Want the best for you, and I only give my best. Remember though: "My ways are not your ways, my thoughts are not your for as the heavens are higher than the earth, my ways are higher than yours!"

I wrote that all down for you in the Good Book! Look it up! You claim that you believe me - now it's time to live out that belief!

Please look to me as this new challenge and chapter of life unfolds in front of you. I promise to equip you. I won't give you anything you can't handle. I am answering your prayers. Trig can't wait to meet you. I'm giving you ONLY THE BEST!

Love,
Trig's Creator, Your Heavenly Father

Why hasn't Sarah opened her piehole over Weinergate sooner?

Anthony Weiner has been under scrutiny for sending lewd pictures from his Twitter account.  All Republicans and many Democrats are calling for him to resign, which he has not. 

Personally I feel he should resign, since he used his official Twitter account to send those pictures, but I digress.  However I find it very interesting that Miss Family Values Sarah Palin has been mum about Weinergate until last night when Judge Napolitano interviewed her on FOX.  Why is that?

Is it because she was too preoccupied with the e-mail release?

Too busy planning her trip to Sudan?

Too busy trying to get Margaret Thatcher to grant a visit?

Or....

Maybe it's because she also has a philandering husband like Mrs. Weiner does and any comment will bring us bloggers out in force and shine the spotlight on her marriage.  But she certainly slammed Arnold Schwarzenegger, but then he refused to endorse her.  But Anthony would never endorse Sarah, so the silence is deafening.  BTW the charges against Shailey were dropped and she is free to spill her guts


Another thing...

No tweets from her in the past several days.  How refeshing.

Here she is on FOX.

Were the Palins victims of mortgage fraud?

From NECN.com

In the three years since the U.S. real-estate bubble burst, something we've learned is what a mess investment banks and mega-banks made as they took millions of shoddily documented mortgages and sliced and diced them into arcane Wall Street mortgage-backed securities in the 2000s.

Among the millions now apparently caught in the fallout: Republican icon Sarah Palin, the former Alaska governor and 2008 vice-presidential candidate turned media celebrity.

"The worst thing that could happen to Sarah Palin is she has a cloud on her title. She's going to have to go out, retain an attorney, and try to clean up the mess that the banks caused,'' John L. O'Brien Jr., the Salem-based Register of Deeds for Southern Essex County, sand in an interview with NECN Thursday. In a worst-case scenario, a prior owner could challenge whether Palin now legally holds title to the property -- or Palin could be stuck with a legal headache trying to resell the house years down the road.

Working with forensic investigator Marie McDonnell, president of McDonnell Property Analytics Inc. www.mcdonnellanalytics.com, O'Brien has found abundant evidence that the home a Palin trust bought in Scottsdale, Ariz., suffers from the same wretched Wall Street paper trail as millions of other U.S. homes where mortgages were converted into collateralized debt obligations and sold worldwide.

As Wells Fargo and JPMorgan Chase processed the mortgages, foreclosed on a previous lender, and resold the house to an investor who sold it to the Palin family, McDonnell said, at least two critical documents didn't get signed and three did get signed by "robo-signers" -- people apparently using fake names who churned out thousands of purported affidavits every day vouching for the bank that all the realty and mortgage paperwork was in order.

Two names that showed up on several documents connected to the Palin Arizona home were "Linda Green" and "Deborah Brignac," names used by multiple robo-signers purporting to be officials at multiple bank subsidiaries or business partners at Wells and Chase, O'Brien and McDonnell said. In the case of Brignac signatures on Chase documents, "This is a shell game where Brignac purports to be vice president of three different entities so that she can manufacture the paperwork necessary for JPMorgan Chase Bank to hijack the mortgage and then foreclose on the property,'' McDonnell said.

"Linda Green," meanwhile, is a name O'Brien said he has found on over 6,000 documents in his registry signed in what appear to be at least 22 different hands, almost all of them easily recognizable by an average person as clearly forgeries.

O'Brien said, "If fundamental property principles still matter in this country, Sarah Palin may have legal issues that could affect the ownership of her home. Through no fault of her own, Sarah Palin has become a victim like thousands of others across the country that have the same problem with their chain of title.  I feel bad for Governor Palin and all the homeowners who have been victimized by this scheme, it just goes to show you that no one is immune from this type of fraud and irresponsible behavior that these banks participated in."

"These banks have participated in a national epidemic of fraud that has clouded or damaged the chain of title of hundreds of thousands of American homeowners all across the country. Sadly, Sarah Palin's misfortune will however, hopefully shine the national spotlight on this issue. Given her position in the country, I am sure that she will use her influence to stand up for homeowners and their property rights".

JPMorgan spokesman Mike Fusco said the bank would decline to comment. Wells Fargo didn't respond to requests for comment. Wells and several other banks have faced lawsuits from people facing foreclosure who argue the banks can't solidly prove they held legal possession to a mortgage when the bank moved to seize the home from delinquent borrowers.

The big point O'Brien is trying to make is that while Sarah Palin may be among the biggest-name victims of shoddy bank paperwork, there are thousands -- if not tens of thousands -- of other people around New England facing the exact same problem as the former Alaska governor proving legal ownership of their homes. "She's experiencing the same problem that thousands of homeowners in my district are,'' O'Brien said of Palin.

Meanwhile, as of this week O'Brien has begun refusing to record documents from banks with "the names of notorious robo signers" like Linda Green. "When I see something that I know is fraudulent, I am no longer recording it,'' O'Brien said, and he hopes more deeds officials around the country will follow suit and crank up pressure on banks -- and prosecutors -- to finally clean out hundreds of thousands of bogus realty documents infecting the nation's real-estate industry.

Thursday afternoon, I couldn't reach an aide to Palin to see if she wanted to comment on this situation, or if she even knew about it. What's important to make perfectly clear: She hasn't done anything wrong or been accused of doing anything wrong with the Scottsdale home purchase. She's just bought a house that -- like all too many U.S. homes in 2011 -- official say has a very messed-up legal paper trail, thanks to a pair of the nation's very biggest banks and their Wall Street partners.

Serves ya right you fucking bitch!

Gabby Giffords is home now

All charges against Shailey Tripp dropped

From Shailey's blog

Alot happens so quickly. Last week I had my sinus surgery and this week I had my court date.
I was blessed today. My court date went great. The charges were dismissed and that was amazing news for  my life.

But now I am free to talk about Todd Palin. What was so special about me and him? Why was my name  put with his?

To put it simply Todd Palin along with other people recruit and groom men and women to be prostitutes. These prostitutes are eventually given positions inside a company and used to secure business deals. These business deals often involve obtaining military and government contracts. The people who use the prositution services are usually in positions of power.

I have witnessed this first hand and am speaking from my own personal experiences.

You may choose to believe me or choose not to.I simply do not care at this point. I used to think Sarah Palin knew nothing of these kinds of things but I've had a year to think it over very carefully, and I am now convinced Sarah Palin not only knew of these actions but went through great lengths to cover it up. I even go so far as to say I would bet the men involved around Sarah Palin's politcal career were offered to be treated to these kinds of prostitution services. I would love to have a private chat with Frank Bailey someday.

Why would I say this? Because it is wrong, it is horrible, and the people that are getting paid for sex services are groomed for these positions and stuck with it for a long long time. They are even made to think it is a great life and their idea to do it. It is very hard to get out of and scary to stand up to the people providing the clients and gicing you the money. The way this is done is clever and very very hard to prosecute in a court of law. Phones, disposable numbers, computers, and databases are kept of clients needs, sexual preferences, lengths of sessions, contact info and any personal info they may disclose during a session.Sometimes sessions are even taped. Sometimes the buildings of where these sessions are offered are also taped and i don;t mean by law enforcement. Federal employees and military employees know of these services and often use them in sealing a deal. These prostitutes are recruited from all over the U.S. and taken overseas or brought in on planes around the country.

This has to stop. The people doing this are very powerful. I know this sounds very hokey and it is part of the reason people in it do not speak up and fear for the people they love to be hurt if they do speak up. This has been going on for a very long time and has become very sophisticated with new technologies.

I am hoping by me coming forward, that more people will gain the strength and courage to speak up. I hope and dream and pray that people offered these services will speak out; I hope that former clients who know it is wrong will speak out,  I hope that the prostitutes themselves will start to speak out. The main problem is who do they tell?? I couldn't tell anyone because the local police, and FBI were in on this wonderful secret, as well as many employees of MAJOR corporations, and members of the clergy. Who the hell would I speak up to??? And no, not every single person was corrupt and yes there were some amazing police officers in Alaska.

Yes I had sex with Todd Palin, yes he paid me for those services. But there was so much more to it.
That is why this story has been buried and why MSM will not touch it. No one wants to accuse Todd Palin of criminal activity. Well I am and I am telling all of you who read this he was involved and I hope it will stop.

HOLY SHIT!

So Todd was involved in a prostitution ring to help Sarah get good business deals as governor?  Shailey if you are reading this you need to get to the MSM now!  Take all evidence you have that the cops did not destroy, make about four extra copies, give to friends and put a copy in your safe deposit box in case something happens to you.

A post everyone must read

An anonynmous poster on Immoral Minority wrote a timeline about what happens in the delivery and recovery room after a woman gives birth.  It proves that Sarah could not have sent e-mails two hours after she give birth to Trig, which means she DID NOT GIVE BIRTH TO HIM.  The link is right here.

I myself have given birth four times- once to twins. So I feel I can be fairly accurate with the following estimations. I've had one homebirth, two vaginal deliveries- one with epidural and one without, and one c-section. So I am taking all my experience into account, along with many secondhand experiences as a doula and birth coach.

They say Trig was born at 6:30am, so...


Immediately after the baby was delivered, the cord would be clamped and he would be taken over to the warmer. The would suction his airways, do his first APGAR, put a security bracelet on his ankle or wrist, clean him up, do a closer umbilical clip, put his first diaper on, and swaddle him up. Now due to Trig's medical issues there certainly would have been an exam done by a pediatrician as well as a pediatric cardiologist. I estimate these measures would have taken approximately 18 to 25 minutes. It seems quick because it is- they do these things bam-bam-bam.

So the time is now approximately 6:50.

Now, while they are clearing the baby's airways and cleaning them up, etc, they are watching mom to make sure the placenta is delivering properly, they'll sometimes press on mom's tummy to jumpstart things is they are stalled...one thing that plays a very large part of this scenario is the fact that Palin claimed to have had to be "induced". Pitocin is a nasty, nasty thing...it forces the body into the most wretched, soul-consuming contractions possible.

The pitocin has to be pulled back for the afterbirth because of the risk concerning uterine prolapse. So we can safely estimate that Palin was starting to expel the afterbirth just as Trig would have been swaddled up and possibly held by dad.

Assuming Palin took the least amount of time possible to expel her afterbirth and that she did not have any tearing (which she likely would have as such a petite woman having a pitocin induced labor) then we can add another 15-20 minutes.

The time is now approximately 7:10.

Palin's own narrative says the children came in "minutes after" the birth. Assuming she didn't make the children watch her afterbirthing...the children come in around 7:15. Supposedly Bristol, Willow, Piper, and of course Levi were there. And Track was on the phone. Even if we allot only 5-7 minutes per child to meet, hold, coo over, etc the new baby, that takes up around 25 minutes.

At some point, Trig will have had his second APGAR scoring. His glucose will be checked and his footprints will be taken. These things will add around 15-20 minutes.

So with kids visiting and holding/meeting the baby (and remember we know from Sarah's own telling to People magazine that each child held Trig right after birth- this is when Willow supposedly says he looks like he has DS- preposterous) and the additional tests and procedures Trig went through...we add about 40 minutes.

The time is now approximately 7:45.

DS babies are notorious for difficult feeding. Sarah herself has mentioned she breastfed Trig. With a DS baby there would have been a nurse or lactation consultant to help with Trig's first feed. In a healthy baby without DS, the first feed averages 40 minutes. It likely took closer to an hour but in the name of playing devil's advocate, we'll say 40 minutes.

The time is now approximately 8:25.

So allowing absolutely NO TIME whatsoever for Sarah to hold and cuddle her new baby nor change her blood and amniotic soaked bed linens...yes, she COULD have been sending emails at 8:30.

But truly- who among us believes that Sarah Palin, governor of Alaska, lay in a bed soaked with blood, feces, fluid, mucous...and chose to send nondescript, unimportant emails...before changing her bed linens, using the restroom carefully, with a wash bottle and then putting on a chux pad...and again, not taking any time to just BE with her new baby...?

I can't believe I took the time to type all this out just so I could say once MORE...WHAT AN IDIOT.

Who would believe this??!

A BIG THANKS to the anonymous poster who wrote this.

Reason #70 not to vote for Sarah Palin for anything

She can only write at the 8th grade level.

From AOL Weird News

The huge cache of Sarah Palin's emails released Friday offered not only a chance to see what she was writing about during her uncompleted term as Alaska's governor, but also an opportunity to see how well she writes.

AOL Weird News brought samples to two writing analysts who independently evaluated 24,000 pages of the former governor's emails. They came back in agreement that Palin composed her messages at an eighth-grade level, an excellent score for a chief executive, they said.

"I'm a centrist Democrat, and would have loved to support my hunch that Ms. Palin is illiterate," said 2tor Chief Executive Officer John Katzman.  "However, the emails say something else. Ms. Palin writes emails on her Blackberry at a grade level of 8.5.

"If she were a student and showing me her work, I'd say 'It's fine, clear writing,'" he said, admitting that emails he wrote scored lower than Palin's on the widely used Flesch-Kincaid readability test.

"She came in as a solid communicator," said Paul J.J. Payack, president of the Global Language Monitor. The emails registered as an 8.2 on his version of the test. "That's typical for a corporate executive."

An example of Palin's strongest writing came on Jul. 17, 2007 in an email to Lieutenant Governor Sean Parnell about the controversial Gravina Island Bridge, infamously called the "Bridge to Nowhere."
"We cant afford it, the Feds won't pay for it, the general populace isn't placing it as a high priority … can you diplomatically express that?! Of course we want infrastructure -- and this is NOT a "bridge to nowhere" (that is so offensive), but as it stands today with the highest-cost bridge design selected by the Ketchikan community, we need to find a lower-cost alternative [if] a bridge will be built."
"She's very concise. She gives clear orders. Her sentences and punctuations are logical," Payack said. "She has much more of a disciplined mind than she's given credit for."

Although it's like comparing apples to oranges, Payack said that famous speeches like Abraham Lincoln's Gettysburg Address was a 9.1 and Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" oration rated a 8.8 on the scale.

The Palin emails offer a rare opportunity to see the digital internal communication of a public official. One of the few comparable scenarios was the release of the relatively slim 928-page assortment of former FEMA chief Michael Brown's emails from the days around the Hurricane Katrina catastrophe.

Payack and Katzman restricted their analysis to 60 randomly chosen messages that were at least one paragraph long. They were just 60 among the avalanche of documents released in response to freedom of information requests lodged when Palin was the relatively unknown running mate of Sen. John McCain in the 2008 presidential campaign.

Incoming messages to Palin's gov.sarah@yahoo.com account made up the bulk of the correspondence between December 2006 and September 2008, while the majority of notes Palin penned were too brief to use in the grade-level tests, the analysts said.

Many messages were conjured on her Blackberry, where Palin shortened words in a manner familiar to people who conduct business with their thumbs on a minuscule keypad.

"I'll ck w/Nizich on letter and fwd your ideas," she wrote to Parnell in September 2008 about a conversation he had with Mike Nizich, a former chief of staff to Palin.

Her characteristic down-home manner as the self-proclaimed "Mama Grizzly" that has endeared her to her base and been the subject of ridicule by her opponents shined through in an email from Jan. 2, 2007, soon after she moved into the governor's mansion.

"I am a hunter. I grew up hunting - some of my best memories growing up are of hunting with my dad to help feel [sic] our freezer," she wrote to aides on a bear hunting issue under debate.

But this was a rare example where Palin's writing style matched with the public persona of the rugged frontierswoman that Americans recognize from her recurring appearances on television.

"Given her portrayal of herself as very much an Alaskan I had expected to find a lot of 'Alaskanisms' in her emails," said University of Alaska, Anchorage English Professor David Bowie. "But there were actually very few."

The one regionalism Bowie noticed that popped up was Palin's use of the word "outside" for things beyond Alaska's borders.

[Editor's Note: In the interest of fairness, the writer submitted his own work for scrutiny. His recent piece, on a New York man trying to row across the Atlantic Ocean is on the 8.8 grade level, Payack said.]

While 8th grade level maybe fine for some people, I expect better.  She was a journalism major in college so her writing and communicating skills should be at least the college level.  The Palinbots think 8th grade level is great.  Not surprising considering they can only read and write at the 2nd grade level.  Wasilla High and the University of Idaho should ask for their diplomas back.

Some of the e-mails are pretty damning-Update

Like this one.

Jeremy Morlock wrote Sarah asking if she could get him a Compassionate Reassignment.  His mother was having problems after the death of her husband.  Sarah ignored it.  Jeremy is responsible for murdering that Afghan boy, but if Sarah had helped him he may not have snapped.  Damn you Sarah!

This e-mail confirms that Bristol was attending Anchorage West High School in Feb 2008.  Just means she was over her "mono" by then.

The e-mails also confirm what Frank Bailey said in his book, that they ghost wrote letters to the editor and had their friends sign them.

And Sarah really really hates Lyda Green.

Update-And here is an e-mail of interest:

"From: "PARNELL, S (GOV sponsored)"

Date: Fri, 09 Nov 2007 17:49:46

To:gov.sarah®yahoo.com

Subject: OCS-infant

Governor,

Karleen Jackson called with an extremely urgent situation involving OCS. When you get the opportunity, please call me at You'll want to be in a quiet place where you can think and talk for a few minutes, if you haven't already been contacted.

Sean"

Wonder what this means.  Is this where she got Trig?

Gabby Giffords making progress

Gabby's staff just released this photo of her:




She is doing better than she was five months ago but still has a long recovery.

From ABC News


Rep Gabriele Giffords , bright eyes peering out from behind blue wire-framed glasses, looks radiant in a recently released Facebook photo. But experts say her half-tilt smile suggests her recovery from a gunshot wound to the head will be complex.

The Arizona congresswoman has astounded all her doctors, climbing stairs recently to board a plane for Florida to watch her husband, astronaut Mark E. Kelly, at the launch of the shuttle Endeavour and responding to her family and caregivers.

Now, as Giffords prepares to leave TIRR Memorial Hermann Hospital in Houston, Texas, to begin her long-term rehabilitation, brain injury experts say public hopes for a return to the House may be unrealistic.

"If I had to guess, I would expect her to have some deficiencies for the rest of her life," said Dr. Anand Germanwala, chief of cerebral vascular and skull-based neurosurgery at the University of North Carolina Medical School. "The brain is a very unforgiving organ.

"I certainly wish her all the best and hope she has complete recovery -- it is possible," he said. "But realistically thinking, this is a young lady in a high profile job, well-educated and eloquent. That requires a lot of brain tasks to successfully execute the job. To expect that now, it's not fair."

Her husband, who has been the most consistent optimist, admits the road back is "months not weeks away."

Gabby is certainly in my thoughts and prayers.  I hope she can make a complete recovery for herself and the nation.  I hope she will be well enough to defend her Congressional seat or perhaps runs for Jon Kyl's Senate seat when he retires.  Now wouldn't that be a stick in Sarah and Jared Loughner's craw?

Sarah Palin e-mails are being released today-Update

As you already know Sarah Palin's e-mails are being released by MSNBC at 1 pm Eastern time today (9 am Alaska time).  Unfortunately I will not be at the computer when they are released so I will post some of them tomorrow.

Update-Sylvia Wood and Bill Dedman from MSNBC lived blogged their findings.  Here is the link to the e-mails.  Happy reading!

Reason #69 not to vote for Sarah Palin for anything

She associates with Ted Nugent, a pedophile and a disgusting person.

Arizona Wildfires

The wildfires in Arizona have now covered 600 square miles.  It makes me wonder if God is punishing AZ for the Giffords shooting and Sarah buying a home there.  Also it is home to Jan Brewer and Joe Arpaio.  Just a thought.

Reason #68 not to vote for Sarah Palin for anything

She tried to ban books from the city library and fired the city librarian Anne Kilkenny.

Anne's letter that made the rounds on the internet:


I am a resident of Wasilla, Alaska. I have known Sarah since 1992. Everyone here knows Sarah, so it is nothing special to say we are on a first-name basis. Our children have attended the same schools. Her father was my child’s favorite substitute teacher. I also am on a first name basis with her parents and mother-in-law. I attended more City Council meetings during her administration than about 99% of the residents of the city.
She is enormously popular; in every way she’s like the most popular girl in middle school. Even men who think she is a poor choice and won’t vote for her can’t quit smiling when talking about her because she is a “babe”.

It is astonishing and almost scary how well she can keep a secret. She kept her most recent pregnancy a secret from her children and parents for seven months. She is “pro-life”. She recently gave birth to a Down’s syndrome baby. There is no cover-up involved, here; Trig is her baby. She is energetic and hardworking. She regularly worked out at the gym.

She is savvy. She doesn’t take positions; she just “puts things out there” and if they prove to be popular, then she takes credit. Her husband works a union job on the North Slope for BP and is a champion snowmobile racer. Todd Palin’s kind of job is highly sought-after because of the schedule and high pay. He arranges his work schedule so he can fish for salmon in Bristol Bay for a month or so in summer, but by no stretch of the imagination is fishing their major source of income. Nor has her life-style ever been anything like that of native Alaskans. Sarah and her whole family are avid hunters. She’s smart.

Her experience is as mayor of a city with a population of about 5,000 (at the time), and less than 2 years as governor of a state with about 670,000 residents. During her mayoral administration most of the actual work of running this small city was turned over to an administrator. She had been pushed to hire this administrator by party power-brokers after she had gotten herself into some trouble over precipitous firings which had given rise to a recall campaign.

Sarah campaigned in Wasilla as a “fiscal conservative”. During her 6 years as Mayor, she increased general government expenditures by over 33%. During those same 6 years the amount of taxes collected by the City increased by 38%. This was during a period of low inflation (1996-2002). She reduced progressive property taxes and increased a regressive sales tax which taxed even food. The tax cuts that she promoted benefited large corporate property owners way more than they benefited residents.

The huge increases in tax revenues during her mayoral administration weren’t enough to fund everything on her wish list though, borrowed money was needed, too. She inherited a city with zero debt, but left it with indebtedness of over $22 million. What did Mayor Palin encourage the voters to borrow money for? Was it the infrastructure that she said she supported? The sewage treatment plant that the city lacked? or a new library? No. $1m for a park. $15m-plus for construction of a multi-use sports complex which she rushed through to build on a piece of property that the City didn’t even have clear title to, that was still in litigation 7 yrs later–to the delight of the lawyers involved! The sports complex itself is a nice addition to the community but a huge money pit, not the profit-generator she claimed it would be. She also supported bonds for $5.5m for road projects that could have been done in 5-7 yrs without any borrowing.

While Mayor, City Hall was extensively remodeled and her office redecorated more than once. These are small numbers, but Wasilla is a very small city. As an oil producer, the high price of oil has created a budget surplus in Alaska. Rather than invest this surplus in technology that will make us energy independent and increase efficiency, as Governor she proposed distribution of this surplus to every individual in the state.
In this time of record state revenues and budget surpluses, she recommended that the state borrow/bond for road projects, even while she proposed distribution of surplus state revenues: spend today’s surplus, borrow for needs.

She’s not very tolerant of divergent opinions or open to outside ideasor compromise. As Mayor, she fought ideas that weren’t generated by her or her staff. Ideas weren’t evaluated on their merits, but on the basis of who proposed them.

While Sarah was Mayor of Wasilla she tried to fire our highly respected City Librarian because the Librarian refused to consider removing from the library some books that Sarah wanted removed. City residents rallied to the defense of the City Librarian and against Palin’s attempt at out-and-out censorship, so Palin backed down and withdrew her termination letter. People who fought her attempt to oust the Librarian are on her enemies list to this day.

Sarah complained about the “old boy’s club” when she first ran for Mayor, so what did she bring Wasilla? A new set of “old boys”. Palin fired most of the experienced staff she inherited. At the City and as Governor she hired or elevated new, inexperienced, obscure people, creating a staff totally dependent on her for their jobs and eternally grateful and fiercely loyal–loyal to the point of abusing their power to further her personal agenda, as she has acknowledged happened in the case of pressuring the State’s top cop (see below).

As Mayor, Sarah fired Wasilla’s Police Chief because he “intimidated” her, she told the press. As Governor, her recent firing of Alaska’s top cop has the ring of familiarity about it. He served at her pleasure and she had every legal right to fire him, but it’s pretty clear that an important factor in her decision to fire him was because he wouldn’t fire her sister’s ex-husband, a State Trooper. Under investigation for abuse of power, she has had to admit that more than 2 dozen contacts were made between her staff and family to the person that she later fired, pressuring him to fire her ex-brother-in-law. She tried to replace the man she fired with a man who she knew had been reprimanded for sexual harassment; when this caused a public furor, she withdrew her support.

She has bitten the hand of every person who extended theirs to her in help. The City Council person who personally escorted her around town introducing her to voters when she first ran for Wasilla City Council became one of her first targets when she was later elected Mayor. She abruptly fired her loyal City Administrator; even people who didn’t like the guy were stunned by this ruthlessness.

Fear of retribution has kept all of these people from saying anything publicly about her.

When then-Governor Murkowski was handing out political plums, Sarah got the best, Chair of the Alaska Oil and Gas Conservation Commission: one of the few jobs not in Juneau and one of the best paid. She had no background in oil & gas issues. Within months of scoring this great job which paid $122,400/yr, she was complaining in the press about the high salary. I was told that she hated that job: the commute, the structured hours, the work. Sarah became aware that a member of this Commission (who was also the State Chair of the Republican Party) engaged in unethical behavior on the job.
I
n a gutsy move which some undoubtedly cautioned her could be political suicide, Sarah solved all her problems in one fell swoop: got out of the job she hated and garnered gobs of media attention as the patron saint of ethics and as a gutsy fighter against the “old boys’ club” when she dramatically quit, exposing this man’s ethics violations (for which he was fined).

As Mayor, she had her hand stuck out as far as anyone for pork from Senator Ted Stevens. Lately, she has castigated his pork-barrel politics and publicly humiliated him. She only opposed the “bridge to nowhere” after it became clear that it would be unwise not to.

As Governor, she gave the Legislature no direction and budget guidelines, then made a big grandstand display of line-item vetoing projects, calling them pork. Public outcry and further legislative action restored most of these projects–which had been vetoed simply because she was not aware of their importance–but with the unobservant she had gained a reputation as “anti-pork”.

She is solidly Republican: no political maverick. The State party leaders hate her because she has bit them in the back and humiliated them. Other members of the party object to her self-description as a fiscal conservative.

Around Wasilla there are people who went to high school with Sarah.

They call her “Sarah Barracuda” because of her unbridled ambition and predatory ruthlessness. Before she became so powerful, very ugly stories circulated around town about shenanigans she pulled to be made point guard on the high school basketball team. When Sarah’s mother-in-law, a highly respected member of the community and experienced manager, ran for Mayor, Sarah refused to endorse her.

As Governor, she stepped outside of the box and put together of package of legislation known as “AGIA” that forced the oil companies to march to the beat of her drum.

Like most Alaskans, she favors drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. She has questioned if the loss of sea ice is linked toglobal warming. She campaigned “as a private citizen” against a state initiaitive that would have either a) protected salmon streams from pollution from mines, or b) tied up in the courts all mining in the state (depending on who you listen to). She has pushed the State’s lawsuit against the Dept. of the Interior’s decision to list polar bears as threatened species.

McCain is the oldest person to ever run for President; Sarah will be a heartbeat away from being President. There has to be literally millions of Americans who are more knowledgeable and experienced than she. However, there’s a lot of people who have underestimated her and are regretting it.

WHY AM I WRITING THIS?
First, I have long believed in the importance of being an informed voter. I am a voter registrar. For 10 years I put on student voting programs in the schools. If you google my name (Anne Kilkenny + Alaska), you will find references to my participation in local government, education, and PTA/parent organizations.

Secondly, I’ve always operated in the belief that “Bad things happen when good people stay silent”. Few people know as much as I do because few have gone to as many City Council meetings.

Third, I am just a housewife. I don’t have a job she can bump me out of. I don’t belong to any organization that she can hurt. But, I am no fool; she is immensely popular here, and it is likely that this will cost me somehow in the future: that’s life.

 Fourth, she has hated me since back in 1996, when I was one of the 100 or so people who rallied to support the City Librarian against Sarah’s attempt at censorship.

Fifth, I looked around and realized that everybody else was afraid to say anything because they were somehow vulnerable.

CAVEATS

I am not a statistician. I developed the numbers for the increase in spending & taxation 2 years ago (when Palin was running for Governor) from information supplied to me by the Finance Director of the City of Wasilla, and I can’t recall exactly what I adjusted for: did I adjust for inflation? for population increases? Right now, it is impossible for a private person to get any info out of City Hall–they are swamped. So I can’t verify my numbers.

You may have noticed that there are various numbers circulating for the population of Wasilla, ranging from my “about 5,000″, up to 9,000. The day Palin’s selection was announced a city official told me that the current population is about 7,000. The official 2000 census count was 5,460. I have used about 5,000 because Palin was Mayor from 1996 to 2002, and the city was growing rapidly in the mid-90’s.
