Sarah Palin Rocks The Tonight Show

Posted by Gary P Jackson on December 11, 2009

This is simply delicious. Sarah Palin makes a surprise visit to the Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien. So secret was her visit that the NBC audience was ushered out during rehersal. As you will see, Sarah rocked the joint, or should I say….. she left ’em jazzed!

Going Rogue: USA Today’s #1 for Week #3

Posted by Adrienne Ross on December 11, 2009

By Adrienne Ross – http://www.motivationtruth.com

Governor Palin’s Going Rogue is #1 on the USA Today Bestsellers List for the third consecutive week.

The Governor is headed home to Alaska after an incredible book tour here in the Lower 48, but Going Rogue indeed is still going strong. She continues her tour on Sunday with stops at Elmendorf and Eielson Air Force Bases in her home state.

Sarah Palin comes “home” to Minnesota

Posted by northstarliberty on December 11, 2009


Going Rogue by the numbers (source: Mall of America):

2500: Number of copies of Going Rogue signed by Sarah Palin at her Barnes & Noble Mall of America appearance on December 7. The previous mall record for books signed was held by Twilight author Stephanie Meyer (850 books).

1700: Approximate number of persons who came to Mall of America to see Sarah Palin

4: Number of hours that Palin signed books on December 7

2: Number of international press covering the event (Der Spiegel and Al Jazeera)

1: Palin event ranking for the number of media organizations covering a Mall of America event in the mall’s seventeen-year history

1: Current rank of Going Rogue on the New York Times Best Sellers list for hardcover nonfiction

0: Number of tomatoes thrown at Sarah Palin that actually hit her

It was Fred Barnes from the Weekly Standard who first introduced me to former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin back in July 2007, in his column “The Most Popular Governor:”

The wipeout in the 2006 election left Republicans in such a state of dejection that they’ve overlooked the one shining victory in which a Republican star was born. The triumph came in Alaska where Sarah Palin, a politician of eye-popping integrity, was elected governor. She is now the most popular governor in America, with an approval rating in the 90s, and probably the most popular public official in any state.

Her rise is a great (and rare) story of how adherence to principle–especially to transparency and accountability in government–can produce political success.

I became an immediate fan of Palin, read occasional articles about her, and enjoyed passing through her Mat-Su Valley hometown of Wasilla on vacation in July 2008. Imagine my thrill after attending a local Republican fundraiser, the night Barack Obama accepted the Democrat nomination for President — as we heard through the grapevine that network news helicopters, broadcast satellite trucks, and other media had encircled the home of Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty — that John McCain had chosen Governor Palin as his running mate.

The rest is history, including Palin’s dazzling acceptance speech at the Republican National Convention in Saint Paul in September of 2008 (in Palin’s book, a photo of the convention floor at Saint Paul’s Xcel Energy Center is misidentified as being in Minneapolis), and the disappointing defeat of the McCain-Palin ticket in November.

It is fitting that Governor Palin returns to the Twin Cities, to a place called Mall of America. A shopping mall is, after all, a shrine to free enterprise and consumerism, a reflection of the highest standard of living in the history of the world. MOA is really big, like Alaska. And “An American Story” is what Palin is all about.

The gov we love alluded to her Minnesota connections in these Twitter posts sent from her Blackberry on December 7:

In Minnesota,event @ Mall of America,look frwrd 2 seeing Alaska friends’ relatives here (a lot of MN transplants in AK!);lot in common w MN

Privileged 2 now meet w MN folks w families n Alaska;1 realizes how intimate r nation is as we travel&hear of connections all Americans have

Palin’s book and national tour are laying a strong and wide foundation of trust, loyalty, and affection for the governor and her family, amongst the hoi polloi in the small towns of America she claimed as her own in that acceptance speech last year:

A writer observed: “We grow good people in our small towns, with honesty, sincerity, and dignity.” I know just the kind of people that writer had in mind when he praised Harry Truman.

I grew up with those people.

They are the ones who do some of the hardest work in America, who grow our food, run our factories and fight our wars.

They love their country, in good times and bad, and they’re always proud of America.

The Racism Game – We’re Not Playing

Posted by Adrienne Ross on December 11, 2009

By Adrienne Ross – http://www.motivationtruth.com

This morning Joshua, my Conservatives4Palin colleague, blew a hole in the stupid suggestion that Governor Palin left Hawaii after just one semester because there were too many Asians there. Here the Left goes again, trying to depict the Governor as a racist in order to do what the Left always does: play the race card. The tactic is old, tired, and played out. It only shows how utterly desperate and despicable the anklebiters are, possessing no better game plan than to smear a patriot who has shown nothing but complete love and devotion to her country and its citizens–all of them.

To the Huffington Post, in response to your asinine question, “Did Sarah Palin leave Hawaii because there were too many Asians?” I have a couple questions for you:

1. Did you read the Governor’s book? In it she tells why she left Hawaii. Pick up the bestseller and enjoy the read. It’ll spare you the embarrassment of asking your agenda-laden question.

2. Are you so foolish as to think that the Governor was shocked when she got to Hawaii and found Asians there? Common sense should tell you that she knew when she left Alaska for Hawaii that she was going to…well, Hawaii. She knew, therefore, Asians resided there. That didn’t stop her from going, so why would it drive her away? It didn’t.

This Hawaii nonsense is just the newest in a long history of “Sarah Palin is a racist” schtick. This is the first one I heard involving Asians, however. I guess the haters are strengthening their approach. Normally, it’s the racism-against-Blacks smear that gets the attention. It’s become a movement, albeit one without a shred of substance. But how could there be? Chris Matthews is its leader, and he doesn’t have any substance either. Time and again, he has raised the issue of race when it comes to the Governor. Is Sarah Palin the poster girl for racism? Were there any Black people at the book signing?

He’s so very concerned about Black people, isn’t he? His concern would be heart-warming for me, a Black woman, if I thought there was a shred of sincerity in it.

Instead, he’s making a mockery of those, like Dr. King, who truly stood up for racial equality and wanted people to be judged by the content of their character, not the color of their skin. Although I imagine Dr. King would have enjoyed her memoir, I find it extremely hard to believe he would have been asking how many Black people showed up at Governor Palin’s book signing. I think he was deeper than that. Surely he, a worthy Nobel Peace Prize recipient, did not dedicate his life to justice and peace so some hater could count off how many Black people showed up at an event. Somehow I just know he believed all Americans worthy of better than that–and would never have used people to promote his political agenda, counting people like sheep, and masking it in concern.

I suppose Huff Po and Chris Matthews would be satisfied if Governor Palin had driven around the streets in her Going Rogue tour bus, picking up stray people and busing them to the book signing so she could have a nice photo-op and the racebaiters could be happy.

No, the Governor treats people as people. She loves her country–and this country is made up of all different kinds of people. She espouses a message of common sense conservatism, and that message is one that benefits all Americans. Lower taxes, love for our troops, less government intrusion, and respect for human life don’t have race attached to them. Contrary to what the Chris Matthewses of the world would lead people to believe, those principles do not discriminate. They don’t segregate whites from non-whites. They don’t appeal simply to the white people of the world, which seems to be what some on the Left would have us believe. I like them just fine, and the last time I checked I was not white. The Governor doesn’t have one message for Blacks, one for Asians, and one for Caucasians. There’s one America, and that’s the America she sees and loves.

What qualifies me to speak so authoritatively on the issue? Why should my word be taken over Chris Matthews, the Huffington Post, or others who smear Governor Palin?

I’m a firm believer of the quote, “A person with an experience is never at the mercy of a person with an argument.” My experience with the Governor shows me what kind of person she is. I have been in her presence several times now, both in New York a couple times and in Alaska. Not one time has she treated me any differently than anyone else. I have been in the presence of her family members. I have talked more to Todd Palin than I have his wife. He, too, has been nothing but friendly and welcoming. I have talked extensively with the Governor’s parents, and I consider them friends. Never has there been a hint of standoffishness or a tinge of racism from any of these people. When I saw the Governor in Rochester a couple weeks ago, she hugged me warmly and spoke as she would to someone she respected.

So the racism nonsense is just that: Nonsense with a captital N. Neither the Huffington Post, MSNBC, or any other racebaiter will convince me that the Governor is anything other than an upstanding citizen who is so totally free from racial bias that it doesn’t play a factor in how she governed in Alaska, how she relates to people now, or the principles she holds dear.

I say again, a person with an experience is never at the mercy of a person with an argument.

America, questions about whether or not the Governor left college because she was a racist and questions about how many Black people showed up at a particular book signing are framed to insult your intelligence and play on your emotions. The truth is these foolish souls don’t believe you’re wise enough to catch on to the racebaiting. It’s the game they try to lure you into. Let them know you’re not playing.
