Palin Endorsee Mary Fallin Leading Oklahoma Governor’s Race

Posted by Dr. Fay on July 29, 2010

Chris Cillizza at The Fix reported on a big win for Mary Fallin in the Oklahoma governor’s primary on Tuesday:

Rep. Mary Fallin (R) and Lt. Gov. Jari Askins (D) are headed toward a battle in the fall for the Oklahoma governor’s mansion, setting up a race that will see the Sooner State elect its first woman governor.

Fallin, a two-term congresswoman and former lieutenant governor who has been endorsed by national Republicans including former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, won the GOP nod outright with 55 percent. Her main rival, state Sen. Randy Brogdon, won 39 percent while two other challengers, businessman Robert Hubbard and retired businessman Roger Jackson, were in the low single digits.

Meanwhile, Askins bested state Attorney General Drew Edmondson to clinch the Democratic nod, eking out a 50.3-to-49.7-percent victory that was decided by a margin of about 1,500 votes out of 263,000 cast.

[…}

National Republicans hailed Fallin’s victory. “Mary Fallin brings a proven record and a strong vision for an Oklahoma where taxes are low, government spending is under control, and people are more free to make their own choices for what is best for them and their families,” the Republican Governors Association said in a release.

Palin also issued a celebratory message to Fallin via Twitter. “Well-deserved gubernatorial primary victory today, now on to the general. (We can see November from our house!)” she tweeted.

Meanwhile, the Democratic Governors Association issued a statement praising Askins as “someone who has proven that she can win statewide and proven that she is willing to fight for what matters for working families and families who want to get back to work.”

The race to succeed term-limited Gov. Brad Henry (D) has been viewed by most political handicappers as a prime pickup opportunity for Republicans — Oklahoma was the only state where every county voted for Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) in 2008, giving the Republican presidential nominee 66 percent of the vote.

Local NewsOn6.com further reported today that Fallin is leading Askins by 57-36 in a Rasmussen poll:

Republican Congresswoman Mary Fallin is leading Democratic Lieutenant Governor Jari Askins in the Oklahoma governor’s race, according to a Rasmussen poll released Thursday.

It’s the first look at the governor’s race since Tuesday’s primary.

Fallin had 57 percent of the vote, compared to Askins’ 36 percent.

Fallin defeated State Senator Randy Brogdon and Oklahoma City businessmen Roger L. Jackson and Robert Hubbard in Tuesday’s primary.

It was a much tighter race on the Democratic side. Askins edged out Attorney General Drew Edmondson.

Askins and Fallin will face off in the general election in November.

Governor Palin Hits 2,000,000 on Facebook

Posted by Adrienne Ross on July 29, 2010

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

Governor Palin has just reached two million Facebook friends. Two million! Now, to grasp the enormity of such a feat, let’s digest for a moment exactly how much two million is by looking first at some fun facts. Via True Knowledge:

* There are 20,000 centuries in 2,000,000 years.

* There are about 5,475.8 years in 2,000,000 days.

* There are 83,333 1/3 days in 2,000,000 hours.

* There are 33,333 1/3 hours in 2,000,000 minutes.

* There are 1,136 4/11 miles in 2,000,000 yards.

* There are 666,666 2/3 yards in 2,000,000 feet.

* There are 166,666 2/3 feet in 2,000,000 inches.

It’s hard to wrap one’s mind around that number, yet Governor Palin–a woman who holds no official title anymore–already has over 2,000,000 Facebook friends! How long would it take to count us all? In answer to the question of how long it would take to count even half that amount, Big Site of Amazing Facts states:

Naturally, that depends on how fast you can count.

But if you can count from 1 to 100 in one minute, and you keep counting every minute, without stopping, for eight hours every day (taking time off to eat, sleep, and go to school), you would reach 1,000,000 in 20 days, 6 hours, and 40 minutes, or almost 3 weeks.

If, however, you give up eating, sleeping, and school, and just count every minute of every hour of every day, you would reach 1,000,000 in 6 days, 22 hours, and 40 minutes, almost 1 week.

Being an English teacher and not a mathematician, I would guess it would take more than twice that to arrive at two million, as one would surely slow down during the process of all that counting–not that one would even dare undertake such a tedious task. But I’m celebrating the Governor’s success, so you’ll simply have to excuse me.

On a more serious note now, let’s examine the number of Facebook friends of those whose names get mentioned alongside Governor Palin’s in the ongoing 2012 conversation.

Mitt “Flip-Flop” Romney, whom Bill O’Reilly just divulged to Jay Leno is his 2012 favorite, has a whopping 468,436 Facebook friends.

Mike “They Like Palin Because She’s Cuter than I am” Huckabee has 371,959 friends on Facebook, which is listed near a plea that states, “Help me reach 375,000 likes.” O…kay…

Newt Gingrich, who has recently stated he is seriously considering running in 2012, has a total of 70,311 Facebook friends.

And wouldn’t I be remiss if I left out Ron Paul who boasts hordes of very vocal young and, I would imagine, internet-savvy supporters? This “Ron Paul Revolution,” as they have been called, has fortified him with a 239,427 Facebook total.

Let me state the obvious. Governor Palin’s common sense conservatism has grabbed both the hearts and intellect of women and men who want to see order restored to our government. Two million is a huge number, but it in no way is the sum total of those who support the work she is doing. Many of her supporters don’t do Facebook, just as many don’t do Twitter. But most every one of us can do the Governor and America a huge service: we can donate to SarahPAC so that her influence can not only continue but accelerate.

Is there any other voice out there sounding the alarm for you, your family, your businesses, and your freedoms as is Governor Palin’s? She is traveling the country garnering support for others who are following her lead in taking back our country. She doesn’t cower in fear before putting her name to a candidate’s face or to a controversial issue, even when it earns her the acidic vitriol of the Left–and some on the Right. It takes finances to do the job she’s doing. We’ve already established how big a number two million is, so two million people giving whatever they can will go far distances and reap even far greater rewards. You can read more posts about the SarahPAC money bomb here and here.

Congratulations, Governor Palin, on The Big Two–and thank you to all who helped get her here. Now, let’s BLAST the Money Bomb!

Palin Endorsee Karen Handel’s First TV Ad for Georgia Runoff Election

Posted by Dr. Fay on July 29, 2010

Jim Galloway at the AJC’s Political Insider reports on Karen Handel’s first TV ad for her runoff election in Georgia:

Republican candidate for governor Karen Handel makes use of Sarah Palin’s endorsement in her first TV ad in the Republican runoff for government – which also condemns rival Nathan Deal as “a corrupt relic of Washington D.C.”

“One carries a purse, the other carries baggage,” the 30-second ad begins.

The TV spot follows on the heels of an AJC report of federal grand jury interest in a meeting called by Deal in the hope of preserving his business with the state.

Handel spokesman Dan McLagan says the ad is targeted at metro Atlanta, and describes the airtime buy as “big.”

It’s also the first major use that Handel’s been able to make of the Palin endorsement – which arrived late in the primary, after the former secretary of state’s slim finances had already been committed.

The script:

Male voiceover: One carries a purse. The other carries baggage.

One whom Sarah Palin says has cut government, and is the true conservative.

Or the other, who added trillions to our national debt.

One a conservative reformer. One a corrupt relic of Washington D.C.

Karen Handel is Georgia’s strong conservative. Impeccable integrity. Our thrilling, vibrant future. Karen Handel. Bring it on.

The ad by Fred Davis incorporates the black, white and red tones of Handel’s single “Lipstick” ad in the GOP primary.

Sarah Palin Legal Defense Fund “Flight” in Peoria, IL

Posted by Ron Devito on July 29, 2010

US 4 Palin “Fly Sarah from Wasilla to Washington” Campaign
“Sarah” is now in Peoria, IL

How to “Fly ‘Sarah’ from Wasilla to Washington”

There is no need to email us donation amounts or post them on comments. As long as you donate through an US for Palin graphic or hyperlink to the Sarah Palin Legal Defense Fund, we’ll know about it, whether it’s on the US for Palin site or a venue where its content is syndicated.

Let’s help the Sarah Palin Legal Defense Fund reach new heights and get Gov. Palin to Washington!

The Speech

“Sarah” and Laura had completed their usual pre-flight duties. They got their weather briefing, filed the flight plan and had to wait. This flight would take them to Peoria, IL. There, a motorcade would pick up “Sarah” and take her to Eureka College to give what would be her version of The Speech, which they watched on “Sarah’s” laptop computer.

Having watched the video, it was time to leave. The pair hopped in the plane, Laura did the run-up and got her clearance. A LearJet was sequenced ahead of her. “‘Sarah,’ the next trans-continental trip we do, I’ll take you in that,” Laura said.

After the Lear took off, Laura was cleared for her takeoff. As they departed, “Sarah” bid farewell to Lake Onalaska

The Mighty Mississippi River

Laura had filed for and received a clearance to cruise at 7,000 feet. The mighty Mississippi River came into view off the right wing.

Thunderstorm in Dubuque

Near Dubuque, IA, “Sarah” and Laura spotted a large isolated cumulus cloud. The rain shaft was clearly visible.

Flying through clouds was no mean feat of course for Laura, who is a skilled instrument pilot. Then she saw a flash of light from within the cloud, followed by another. The forked lightning strikes clearly indicated a thunderstorm – which did not come up on the weather briefing – but it came up here. Laura immediately requested a descent to 5,000 feet to stay below the thunder cloud, and permission to deviate toward the southwest, then back so as to go around it.

As Laura went around the cloud, she started planning a possible diversion. If this storm grew or followed the flight, Laura would divert to the nearest airport and land. Yes, “Sarah’s” family was waiting for her in Eureka. Her hair dresser from Wasilla – Jessica Steele – was waiting too, only “Sarah” did not know that. The arrangement was a gift, and Laura had her little hands in that one. But, Laura was a disciplined pilot, and “Sarah” a disciplined passenger. Getting there alive, and with a plane that could be used again was something of a priority. While poor visibility kills pilots without an instrument rating, thunderstorms and icing are the killers for those with the rating. Laura knew that. She carefully watched the storm and saw it was stationary. Soon, the potentially life-threatening monster was left behind. The pair decided to continue the flight.

Quad Cities, Where the Mississippi River Runs East-West

The flight passed Quad Cities. Here the Mississippi River runs east to west rather than north to south. It is the only location in the United States, where the Mississippi River takes this turn.

Laura received her clearance for the approach to Peoria. The instruction was to fly to the southwest of the airport and land on the runway oriented northeast. Laura setup the approach on the GPS.

The plane was buffeted about as the approach began, just like in La Crosse. The pair thought nothing of it. The approach was perfect.

Laura has passed decision height and was ready to land, when a violent wind shear struck. There was no time to check on her passenger. Laura immediately applied full power, raised the flaps one notch at a time and told the controller she was going around.

“Sorry ‘Sarah,’ ” she said. “That landing could not be saved, and” “Sarah” interrupted, “You did the right thing, Laura. It’s all good.”

Laura got setup to re-do the approach. “Sarah” and Laura both saw that some clouds which were over the airport were now south.

The second approach got them in. Laura taxied to General Aviation and tied down. The motorcade pulled in to get “Sarah” and her pilot. “Sarah” had a summons to answer.

Eureka College could be the place where Gov. Palin’s summons to carry the Reagan legacy would be answered.
