Never mind the cobwebs — the rent can’t be beat.

Salon’s Joan Walsh just can’t get enough of Sarah Palin impersonator Sarah Palin.

Sarah, Sarah, Sarah!”

But guys, she’s just keepin’ up with the crazy!

Was that a dig or an admission?

Heh.

Flashback to last month:

Indeed.

      Makes you wonder how may ethics charges Sean Parnell the current Governor of Alaska got when Sarah got one for something as small as wearing Todd’s jacket with a logo on it. As we have not heard any, it is for sure used as a way to bully her out of office. As Gov Parnell is not a threat on the national scale he has none yet.

    • trixiewoobeans

            HA! … the answer is NOBODY

            btw Mike

            Sarah Palin served 32 out of 48 months the same percentage that Obama served of his Senate term (not including the two-year break he spent campaigning) and accomplished everything she set out to do in that time.

            After Sarah Palin accepted John McCain’s offer to run for vice president and became the left’s (media) most attacked and vilified person she returned to Alaska to find a never-ending assault of frivolous ethics complaints paralyzing her ability to govern the state.

            She resigned because she recognized the cost that the frivolous ethics complaints were having on her state , and she saw how much of her staff’s time and her own time were forced to deal with those issues.

            That entire campaign of BS lawsuits was meant to do nothing but hamstring the governor’s office and bankrupt Sarah Palin.

            She saw that if she stayed on as Governor it would continue to cost the state millions of dollars in wasted time and resources to defend against false and maliciously ethics complaints and doom it to gridlock.

            Those frivolous lawsuits had already cost the state of AK close to $2 million; Sarah Palin had over $500,000 dollars in legal fees.

            http://articles.ktuu.com/2009-

            These lawsuits were filed by activists whose goal was to bog down her administration with lawsuits and paperworks & to bankrupt her middle class family. Sarah Palin was responsible for her own legal fees due to the ethic laws at the time. She & her staff were spending 80% of their time defending lawsuits & dealing with FOIA requests. No sooner would one lawsuit go away then another was filed.

            Sarah Palin knew that for the sake of her state it would be best if she stepped aside from the governorship. She resigned so the state could move forward.

            In an article Sarah Palin said:

            “I said, ‘Enough. Political adversaries and their political friends in the media will not destroy my State, my administration, nor my family. Enough.’ I knew if I didn’t play their game any longer, they could not win. I would not retreat, I would instead reload, and I would fight for what is right from a different plane.”

            She promised to keep the frivolous anti-Palin law suits away from the Alaskan people and to be more effective on the stump ( supporting candidates , fundraising, etc)

            Sarah Palin was truthful on both accounts.

            She was the catalyst for the takeover of the House , twice as many Governships and lopsided Gop Statehouses with her endorsements and rallies all over the country during the 2010 election.

            Sarah Palin also had a very strong hand in the party’s few successes during the 2012 election.

  • Elaine

    BS! She quit because the liberal left was inundating her with phony law suits that were taking all her time and money to defend. (All tossed or proven wrong, BTW) She did what was right. I know that’s a tough one for all who love to just BLOW our tax dollars. She could have stayed and campaigned on our dime like BO has done since he HIT THE POLITCAL scene, seemingly out of nowhere?
    Being a community organizer in not a big deal at all. BO had ZERO experience and he has still not learned how to do anything but CAMPAIGN with his trusty tellley-prompter!

    • Jefferson Tea Party

      Exactly right Elaine!

    • M_Baker

      And what about all the tax dollars she waisted in Alaska?
      Are you not able to defend Palin in what I wrote. Like I said, half of the amount needed to defend Palin was from her own complaint against her and you had not counter defense for that.

      She may have claimed that was the reason why she quit, but one of co-workers also stated that she wrote in e-mails that she “hated” her job. Believe what you will but when the cost to defend herself is because of a complaint she filled against herself is no excuse for quitting, especially when she can make the kind of money she could make at Fox.

      Obama hit the political scene and won the Presidency, what’s wrong with that? Also watch Palin also use the tele Prompter. she even once had to use her palm for prearranged questions after one of her speeches.

      I’ve already mentioned where Palin misused her state tax dollar and you have yet to defend it. All you write is your opinion, not responding in what I wrote.

      You said noting that defended Palin from what I wrote. That should tell you something, at least it does for me.

      • Timbet

        “And what about all the tax dollars she waisted in Alaska?”
        —————–
        Sarah Palin saved, reformed, and prioritized like a good fiscal manager. She invested $5 billion in state savings, overhauled education funding, paid down debt, invested $2.6 billion in an education fund for the future, and funded a Senior Benefits Program to provide support for low-income Alaskan seniors.

        In stark contrast to President Obama and other governors whose fiscal records are dogged by credit downgrades, Palin left Alaska with an improved credit rating during and following her tenure as governor.

        Standard & Poor’s raised Alaska’s credit rating from AA to AA+ in April 2008.

        Then in 2010, both Moody’s and Standard & Poor’s upgraded Alaska to AAA for the first time in the state’s history due to policies enacted by Palin that made the state’s finances more than solvent.”

        Sarah Palin succeeded to a remarkable extent in settling what had seemed insoluble problems, in the process putting Alaska on a trajectory to financial well-being.

        This is strong financial management.

        • M_Baker

          Alaska is lucky, unlike any other of the states in has oil to help finance the state. Because of the income the oil provides, the State doesn’t need to tax the income of the residents and has lowered their property tax. But, the current governor, a past oil lobbyist, has been working on lowering the taxes on the oil companies. It also doesn’t look as if the legislature is fighting hard to keep it where it is now.

          It’s only because of the oil taxes that the Standard & Poors and Moody have rated Alaska so high. Palin is also not responsible for the rating. Their rating was just as high before she became governor.

          • mike_in_kosovo

            It’s only because of the oil taxes that the Standard & Poors and Moody have rated Alaska so high.

            The Alaska Permanent Fund has been in existence since 1976, so why did S&P / Moody wait 32 years to raise the rating, if that were the case?

        That is a gossip from Palin hater Baily; and not a fact.

        Bailey is a disgruntled former employee; Sarah Palin suspended Bailey and refused to hire Bailey when he sought a position on her vice presidential campaign staff and later with SarahPAC.
        Mr. Bailey has an axe to grind and abandoned truth in his book…The book belongs on fiction shelves.

        Bailey chose an anti-Palin writer and a “critic” of Sarah Palin to help pen the text.

        A man by the name of Ken Morris, is a known leftist who has a history of pulling obsessive stunts directed towards Sarah Palin, and that the other writer, Jeanne Devon, is a legend in the Alaskan left-wing blogoshpere for her unhinged, freakish behavior aimed at hurting Sarah Palin.

        These aren’t just people who disagree with her politics. These are people who have spent a lot of time, money, and integrity trying to damage Sarah Palin.

        • M_Baker

          Bailey was there, everyday in Palin’s office. Just because he said something not favorable to Palin doesn’t make him a hater as you seem to want to believe. He is also pretty happy he didn’t joint her campaign or he would have been out of a job afterwards.

          Bailey also did her and Todd a big favor by calling the Troopers headquarters trying to get them to fire Palin’s ex-brother-in-law.

          Jeanne Devon has a high reputation for what she writes in her blog, even though it’s not necessarily favorable to Palin. Both co-writers wrote primarily what Bailey gave them, which again is no reason to proclaim her as being “unhinged, freakish behavior” simply because they don’t write what you believe they should write.
          Basically, your opinion isn’t worth anything unless you can back it up with solid evidence to back what you wrote and you did not. I have also read some of her posts in the past and I don’t agree with you.

          • Timbet

            Bailey’s rantings are a figment of his imagination.He is a disgruntled former employee.

            Sarah Palin suspended Bailey and refused to hire Bailey when he sought a position on her vice presidential campaign staff and later with SarahPAC.

            By the way, Bailey was fined ( $11,900) for stealing state emails.

            When Bailey stole these emails, he handed them over to a known far-left blogger so that she could twist the emails into her own deranged version of events, and sell them to Palin haters in the form of a book.

            There were no smoking-guns in the emails themselves, but that didn’t stop the blogger from making up a bunch of lies to place in between the lines of mundane messages.

      • Timbet

        “I’ve already mentioned where Palin misused her state tax dollar”
        ————–
        The media went through pages and pages of Palin Emails (24,000+ pages of emails from Palin’s term as governor), looking for damning information that could wipe Sarah Palin from America’s political scene.

        What they found was the inner workings of an efficient, informed and very involved governor that mounted an unprecedented 80 plus approval rating while in office…..not exactly what the death squads of WaPo, the NYT, and other mainstream outlets had in mind.

        The Palin Emails (24,000+ pages of emails) show that Sarah Palin conducted the business of her state in a transparent, bi-partisan, and responsible manner. She worked long, hard hours and treated everyone with respect.

        There were no sex scandals, no lewd twitter photos, no misuse of taxpayer dollars, and no malicious behavior, whatsoever. Just a governor doing her job.

        This scenario is in sharp contrast to the manner in which the media handled Barack Obama, whom it woefully failed to properly investigate in 2007-08.

        The media , Hollywood and the REP establishment have done everything they can to vilify Sarah Palin and her family but despite a massive effort to destroy her, she is still on her feet and making a difference in the political world.

    • M_Baker

      I’ve already address what you wrote and you haven’t responded with any kind of valid defense. Like I said, she violated at least two clear violations which also points to her dishonesty.

      You have not given anything wrong with what Obama has done. Like I said, all politicians running for higher office turn over their current duties to someone else so their constituency is properly represented. Obama won the majority of the votes which is why he is in office today and not McCain/Palin. Get use to it because he was also elected to a second term and you seem to have a problem understanding you in the minority, not the majority. What will you do or say if Hillary wins the Presidency if she decides to run. If you’re going try using the same old excuses you are now, your in for a long period of disappointment and misery.

      • Judy B

      • Timbet

        There were many “ethics” complaints filed against Sarah Palin. All complaints ,but two ,dismissed as lacking any merit.

        The other two were settlements where Sarah Palin was cleared of any wrongdoing.

        To cut a long story short Sarah Palin was exonerated from blame in all cases without exception.

      • Timbet

        If she had stayed in office what do you think it would have cost the state in time and money. Plus, how much actual governing would she have been able to accomplish?

        No sooner would one lawsuit go away then another was filed.
        The ethics complaint investigations had cost Alaskans $2+ million At that rate, these systematic complaints would have cost Alaskans $8 million by the end of her term.

        • M_Baker

          If she would have behaved in a responsible manner, it wouldn’t cost the state any more than what she had already accumulated. But doing such things as wearing a Ski-Doo snow machine outfit was just asking for an ethics complaint being filed against her. She should have thought about what others would think before she even put it on. It’s obvious gives off the impression she’s could be wearing it because she was paid to promote the company no matter if they sponsored Todd or not. In fact, we really have no proof she might have.

          I can’t remember any other ethic complaints that were filed against her, but as I recall none of them were so outrageously stupid that they shouldn’t at least be given some thought to. Palin just acted as if she was special and seemed to go out and try to prove it.

          • Timbet

            The ethic complaints were filed in order to bog down her administration with lawsuits and paperworks & to bankrupt her middle class family. (Sarah Palin was responsible for her own legal fees due to the ethic laws at the time. )

            When she resigned as Governor, she was labeled a quitter. I assure you that if she hadn’t resigned, she would have been painted by many as a self-centered hypocrite who didn’t care about Alaska.

            They would have argued that she prioritized the preservation of her political future over the fact that frivolous ethics charges against her were draining the resources of the governor’s office.

            Which one of your comments was intelligent?

      • Timbet

        Sarah Palin & her staff were spending 80% of their time defending lawsuits & dealing with FOIA requests… that take an enormous amount of time to process… instead of doing the job she was elected to do.

        No sooner would one lawsuit go away then another was filed. She resigned so the state could move forward.

        In an article Sarah Palin said:

        “I said, ‘Enough. Political adversaries and their political friends in the media will not destroy my State, my administration, nor my family. Enough.’ I knew if I didn’t play their game any longer, they could not win. I would not retreat, I would instead reload, and I would fight for what is right from a different plane.”

        She promised to keep the frivolous anti-Palin law suits away from the Alaskan people and to be more effective on the stump ( supporting candidates , fundraising, etc)

        Sarah Palin was truthful on both accounts.

        She was the catalyst for the takeover of the House , twice as many Governships and lopsided Gop Statehouses with her endorsements and rallies all over the country during the 2010 election.

        Sarah Palin also had a very strong hand in the party’s few successes during the 2012 election.

        Well, it would have been WALKER if the Unions had not provoked the entire country into coming to his aid!

      • Exodus2011

        hey Ma!

        with the political landscape shifting against the CORRUPT Ruling Class, Palin’s resigning to fight back on a different front will be understood and agreed with

        as info about the Big Govt corruption and abuse continues to spread, Americans will be searching more and more for a Leader they can trust

        someone who VALUES keeping their word

        someone who has a record of fighting corruption successfully

        someone whose Admin emails are in the Public domain

        someone who didn’t feel the need to destroy their hard-drives

        someone who is not reluctant to present personal documentation or all Tax Returns

        someone who is transparent in all dealings

        and America will see the Leader they need, waiting in the wings …

      In your dreams! He did what he should have done if he wanted his constituency properly represented. That idea that he quit the Senate to campaign for President is simply a bogus argument from someone who doesn’t have anything better to find fault.

        It’s a shame you don’t apply due diligence to your own people. They’ve got you so distracted, busy sniffing after Conservatives, you haven’t got a clue what’s going on in your own backyard, and your leaders are laughing their asses off at you, while they’re busy enriching themselves on your, and the public’s, backs.

        Hey Ma! **__**

        when you come across a Leader such as this woman, Gov Sarah Palin, you REALISE for the FIRST TIME, that you can actually SHELVE YOUR CYNICISM!

        I could hardly believe it when I investigated her history and accomplishments … I have had ZERO interest in politics … up until Aug 29, 2008

        that is not the case now – I am ENERGISED … basically 100% of my discretionary time is devoted to getting the truth about her out to the masses

  • JD Olson

    Joan, get the news not just the scum from your cesspool. BO quit being president long ago but stays in office to suck the US treasury dry for himself and his cronies. Sarah cared about Alaskan too much to drain their treasury fighting Lefty spurious ethics charges.

  • Timbet

    Sarah Palin served 32 out of 48 months the same percentage that Obama served of his Senate term (not including the two-year break he spent campaigning) and accomplished everything she set out to do in that time.

    After Sarah Palin accepted John McCain’s offer to run for vice president and became the left’s (media) most attacked and vilified person she returned to Alaska to find a never-ending assault of frivolous ethics complaints paralyzing her ability to govern the state.

    She resigned because she recognized the cost that the frivolous ethics complaints were having on her state , and she saw how much of her staff’s time and her own time were forced to deal with those issues.

    That entire campaign of BS lawsuits was meant to do nothing but hamstring the governor’s office and bankrupt Sarah Palin.

    She saw that if she stayed on as Governor it would continue to cost the state millions of dollars in wasted time and resources to defend against false and maliciously ethics complaints and doom it to gridlock.

    Those frivolous lawsuits had already cost the state of AK close to $2 million; Sarah Palin had over $500,000 dollars in legal fees.

    http://articles.ktuu.com/2009-07-09/ethics-complaints_24126005

    These lawsuits were filed by activists whose goal was to bog down her administration with lawsuits and paperworks & to bankrupt her middle class family. Sarah Palin was responsible for her own legal fees due to the ethic laws at the time. She & her staff were spending 80% of their time defending lawsuits & dealing with FOIA requests. No sooner would one lawsuit go away then another was filed.

    Sarah Palin knew that for the sake of her state it would be best if she stepped aside from the governorship. She resigned so the state could move forward.

    In an article Sarah Palin said:

    “I said, ‘Enough. Political adversaries and their political friends in the media will not destroy my State, my administration, nor my family. Enough.’ I knew if I didn’t play their game any longer, they could not win. I would not retreat, I would instead reload, and I would fight for what is right from a different plane.”

      • Exodus2011

        Hey Ma!

        DEO GRATIAS for the rugged Palin family who do not cower when the Leftist Bullies unleash. There are so many things about Gov Sarah Palin that trigger their irrational hatred … in fact, you would have to say that EVERYTHING about her drives them nearly crazy with anger, hatred ……. and FEAR

        It is a little known fact but Gov Palin’s appearance on the National Stage on Sep 3rd 2008, (she and her family, including her younger son Trig introduced to > 40M Americans) had a profound impact on the key cultural issue of abortion.

        If you track the bimonthly Gallup Poll numbers for pro-life/pro-choice through 2008, and look what happened at the sep/oct mark, then the trend since, you will see that the pro-life numbers exceeded pro-choice in America for the FIRST time, I think since Gallup has begun polling the issue.

        IMV, THIS statistic is at the root of the Leftists’ FEAR of Gov Sarah Palin and is why they respond with PDS whenever she becomes prominent in the Media. If the Palin family were to live at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave, would American Culture continue to move in the current direction of degradation, or is there a chance there would be a cultural swing toward more traditional American values?

  • Timbet

    “Being governor of a state with a population equivalent to the population of Columbus’
    ———–
    SarahPalin was the first female and youngest governor to be elected in Alaska, which is tied for the second most powerful governorship in the United States.

    • M_Baker

      And…….. What does that prove? BTW, Alaska is not the second most powerful governor in the country.

      • Timbet

        In Alaska, the Governor has line-item veto power over the budget and can only be overridden by a three-quarters majority of the Legislature. In 1992, the year Arkansas Governor Bill Clinton was elected President, his state budget was $2 billion and among the smallest in the country. Compared to that, Sarah Palin is an executive giant.

        For more than two decades Thad Beyle, a political scientist at the University of North Carolina, has maintained an index of “institutional powers” in state offices. He rates governorships on potential length of service, budgetary and appointment authority, veto power and other factors. Mr. Beyle’s findings for 2008 rate Alaska at 4.1 on a scale of 5. The national average is 3.5.

        Only four other states — Maryland, New Jersey, New York and West Virginia — concentrate as much power in the Governor’s office as Alaska does, and only one state (Massachusetts) concentrates more.

        • thetreyman

          M Baker comes to twitchy,
          gets smacked down for being bitchy
          With comments full of smear and lie,
          his hate for Palin is old and dry
          Now that timbet has him on the rope,
          his talking points have no hope
          The moving target that it his words,
          all seems to us to be absurd
          Though m baker will not relent,
          his hate for Palin has him bent
          Under the bridge now this troll must go,
          to lick his wounds and wine and crow.
          But he’ll return some other time
          to spew his poisonous venom slime.

      • Exodus2011

        hey Ma!

        Sarah Palin has many years (successful) executive management experience at local, regional and state levels including command of the Alaska National Guard and has a history of being a reformer and taking on powerful interests for the benefit of ordinary people.

        She has always been a tough-as-nails executive who understood her role as a servant for the people during her time as Mayor of Wasilla and as Governor; she took on the Republican establishment, big oil, corruption, ethics reform, and tax reform.

        In Alaska, Sarah Palin’s top priorities included fiscal restraint, limiting the size of government, resource development, education, equitable oil valuation as well as transportation and infrastructure development. Sarah Palin fought for ethics reform and transparency in government.

        She has cut spending, forward-funded education, and paved the way for job growth in her hometown.
        Sarah Palin has fought to reduce spending and to enforce fiscal discipline as governor of Alaska. She has drastically reduced the growth of the state budget, which has helped to produce a record budget surplus.

        She cut spending and vetoed hundreds of millions of dollars in spending, not because times were tough, but because she wanted to keep government small and solvent.
        She reformed Alaska’s pension system and used surplus dollars to help pay down underfunded pensions, which reduced Alaska’s liabilities by 34.6 % to help provide analysts at Moody’s with enough confidence to later upgrade Alaska’s credit rating to AAA.
        She also reduced earmark requests for the state of Alaska by 80% during her administration.

        Sarah Palin succeeded to a remarkable extent in settling what had seemed insoluble problems, in the process putting Alaska on a trajectory to financial well-being.

        This is strong financial management.

        Under her leadership, Alaska has invested $5 billion in state savings, reformed education funding, and implemented the Senior Benefits Program, which provides support for low-income Alaskan seniors. She’s also established Alaska’s Petroleum Systems Integrity Office to provide oversight and maintenance of oil and gas equipment, facilities, and infrastructure.

        Sarah Palin’s “business experience” comes with the negotiations and dealings she has had with one of the most powerful industries in the world: the energy industry. Sarah Palin has successfully negotiated new tax structures, lease deals and other issues that arise in the Alaska energy industry.
        At the end of the day, Sarah Palin negotiated billion dollar deals with one of the toughest industries in the world.

        Taking on corruption and crony capitalism has always been a cornerstone of Sarah Palin’s agenda; in Alaska she did take on the old-boy network — the oil companies and her own party .
        As oil and gas commissioner, Sarah Palin called out the unethical practices of members of her own party.
        As Governor, she sought to end the back room deals and improper relationships between oil companies and politicians.

        Sarah Palin is past chair of the Interstate Oil and Gas Compact Commission, a multistate government agency that promotes the conservation and efficient recovery of domestic oil and natural gas resources while protecting health, safety and the environment.

        She also served as chair of the National Governors Association (NGA) Natural Resources Committee, which was charged with pursuing legislation to ensure state needs are considered as federal policy is formulated in the areas of agriculture, energy, environmental protection and natural resource management.

        After poring over thousands of emails (24,000+ pages of emails) from Palin’s term as governor, even the mainstream media has been forced to concede that Palin was a conscientious, transparent, and effective public servant.

  • Timbet

    Joan, when Sarah Palin resigned as Governor, she was labeled a quitter.

    I assure you that if she hadn’t resigned, she would have been painted by many as a self-centered hypocrite who didn’t care about Alaska.

    They would have argued that she prioritized the preservation of her political future over the fact that frivolous ethics charges against her were draining the resources of the governor’s office.

    Sarah Palin resigned to get the countless frivolous complaints against her out of the governor’s office, and the money they cost the state, away from the burden of taxpayers.

    Sarah Palin served 32 out of 48 months the same percentage that Obama served of his Senate term (not including the two-year break he spent campaigning) and accomplished everything she set out to do in that time.

    After Sarah Palin accepted John McCain’s offer to run for vice president and became the left’s (media) most attacked and vilified person she returned to Alaska to find a never-ending assault of frivolous ethics complaints paralyzing her ability to govern the state.

    She saw that if she stayed on as Governor it would continue to cost the state millions of dollars in wasted time and resources to defend against false and maliciously ethics complaints and doom it to gridlock.

    Those frivolous lawsuits had already cost the state of AK close to $2 million; Sarah Palin had over $500,000 dollars in legal fees. (Palin was responsible for her own legal fees ).

    There are plenty of Joan Walsh’s but there is only 1 Sarah Palin! Palin calls them as she sees them something Walsh and her ilk cannot bring themselves to do if it means calling out one of their own. Walsh and the other love, peace and togetherness crowd are irrelevant.

    Walsh’s tweet is just bizarre. Why tweet about this? If Palin is irrelevant, or not ready for prime time, or whatever, then why would you take precious time that could be used to do laundry and instead celebrate the anniversary of Palin becoming a civilian? Did anyone ever celebrate the anniversary of Dan Quayle leaving the political life? Does anyone ever celebrate the anniversary of a ridiculous TV show being cancelled, or a terrible movie failing at the box office? No, they don’t. Does anyone ever celebrate the anniversary of ANYONE quitting (or even being fired)? No — who does that? Why would anyone mark the date on their calendar and then say “happy anniversary” four years later? Hell, leftists partied as if America’s Berlin Wall had come down and the seas had parted and the slaves had been freed all over again on the day when the hated “Chimpy McBushitler” left office, but if anyone specifically celebrated the four-year anniversary of Bush leaving office (as opposed to Obama being elected), I missed it.

    The only explanation that makes sense is that Palin does indeed “live rent-free” in Walsh’s head, so she felt the need to broadcast a silly taunt. “Nyah nyah, you quit four years ago, you quitting quitter!” Yeah, I’m sure that gets under Palin’s skin. Not.

    America needs this Corruptocrat FIGHTER, Gov Sarah Palin, in the Oval Office – look at her record in AK ! She dismantled the *Corrupt B*stards Club* up there ….

    now, does America have a Corrupt B*stards’ Club in DC, operating on STEROIDS???

    Send her to DC and watch the RATS squeal as they try to RUN and HIDE!

    Also, I think it would be best if this NOT4SALE Proven Reformer is directing things from the WH as the IMPLOSION hits America in the future (we are ticking over toward 120% of GDP in debt = Greece territory)

    she is a born Exec Officer/Manager with > 20 years of experience, her most VITAL trait being, she is NOT4SALE

    that quality ALONE is the single most important one if the US Govt is to be successfully reformed and Constitutional America rescued

    imagine what a POTUS could do, if they were beholden to NOBODY, no Lobbyists, no special interest groups, no big donors … a POTUS with a SINGLE ENTRY on her IOU list = “The American People”!

    at the same time she is the most experienced Leader wrt Energy Issues and will also manage the EXPLOSION of American energy development

    both the IMPLOSION/Reform of Govt and the EXPLOSION of American energy development must kick in at exactly the same time, if Constitutional America is
    to survive and thrive again

    GET HER INTO THE OVAL OFFICE, AMERICA

  • Aitch748

    I just noticed:

    So what’s the implication of that supposed to be? That stepping down from a political position is unpatriotic, so Palin is being hypocritical for celebrating Independence Day???

    Why yes, come to think of it, that does sound like a position that a leftist like Joan Walsh would take.

    I guess celebrating July 4 is another one of those things that would irritate a leftist into tweeting some snark.

    • Guest

      I just wanted to again point out that we should all be grateful Sarah Palin wasn’t elected.

      After all, she might have gotten us into two more wars , increased national debt more in 5 years than Bush did in 8, expanded warrantless wiretapping, caused the country’s first-ever credit downgrade, nearly doubled the average unemployment of the Bush years, used the IRS to attack political enemies, gotten our Ambassador killed in Benghazi, used the DOJ to attack political enemies, lied about the Benghazi incident, funnelled billions to cronies in countless “green energy” scams, given Ambassadorships to child molesters and covered up their activities, harassed whistleblowers and Inspector Generals, used the EPA to attack political enemies, increased spending from $2.9T in 2008 to a mere $3.8T today, blamed the other party for own sequester, continued to torture detainees under AFM and rendition to countries for more torture, and used the NSA to monitor political enemies.

      And just think of how she might have embarassed the country — calling P/E/ ratios “profits and earning ratios,” giving the British DVDs of own speeches in the wrong format for Britain, talking about the “intercontinental railroad,” claiming Texas has always been Republican, walking into White House windows, claiming bridges were collapsing during maintenance due to lack of maintenance, visiting “all 57 states,” getting an umbrella stuck in a gate, making the Marines hold umbrellas during speeches, calling our soldiers “corpse-men,” congratulating a deceased Medal of Honor winner for being a living MOH winner, serving a South Korean premier Japanese food, calling Nazi death camps “Polish death camps” and cancelling the Polish missile shield rollout on the anniversary of their invasion by the Soviets, giving the Russians a cheesy “reset button” that actually says “overcharge”… can you imagine?

    • dabhidh

      The post so nice, you made it twice! Guess Sarah has a rent-free pad in your noggin as well!
