Sarah Palin and Ted Nugent Campaign for John Raese in Charleston WVA

Posted by Dr. Fay on October 30, 2010

Governor Palin and Ted Nugent campaigned for John Raese in Charleston, West Virginia today.  Raese is running against Democrat Governor Manchin to fill the last two years of the Senate seat left by Senator Robert Byrd when he died at age 92 in June.

Gil McClanahan of local 13WOWK  reported on the event and included several photos of the event which can be found here.

More than 2,700 people came to Haddad Riverfront Park in Charleston to see a former Republican Vice-Presidential candidate and a rock legend.

Sarah Palin and Ted Nugent campaigned for Republican senatorial candidate John Raese Saturday afternoon.

Palin took the stage first and told the crowd Raese’s opponent, Gov. Joe Manchin is now trying to distance himself from President Barack Obama. She says Raese would work for West Virginia.

Nugent then told the crowd that he wanted to rid Washington of all the pests. He also praised Raese, calling him his blood brother.

Both spoke for about an hour.

The Associated Press reported:

Sarah Palin says Democrat Joe Manchin is a good governor – but she says West Virginia voters should keep him in the governor’s mansion and out of the U.S. Senate.

Palin, the former governor of Alaska and one-time vice presidential candidate, was in Charleston on Saturday to support Republican John Raese (RAY’-see)’s Senate bid. She drew cheers when she said Manchin was a better fit as governor.

Rocker Ted Nugent also was on hand, entertaining the crowd of several hundred with an electric guitar solo of the national anthem. He told the crowd that democracy is a participatory sport and they can’t afford to stand on the sidelines.

Sarah Palin Robocalls Blanket the Nation Before Mid-Terms

Posted by Dr. Fay on October 30, 2010

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Politico has reported that Governor Palin’s robocall for the Faith and Freedom Coalition is reaching millions of people just before the mid-term elections next week.

Ralph Reed’s Faith & Freedom Coalition is sending a Sarah Palin GOTV robo call to 8.5 million social conservative households this weekend across 56 congressional districts and in 14 states with competitive Senate and gubernatorial races, POLITICO has learned.  The largest call universes are in battleground states Ohio, Pennsylvania, Colorado, Florida, Illinois, Washington, Nevada and Wisconsin. 

It’s the same message across the country, but is tailored to each state.

“Hellooo Pennsylvania, this is Sarah Palin urging you to go to the polls on Tuesday or, even better, vote early,” she says in the recording.  “We have some simple choices this year. America needs a return to conservative, common sense and time-tested truths. We need leaders who believe in smaller government, lower taxes, stronger families and a robust, unapologetic national defense.

“The momentum is on our side, but it isn’t over until the polls close, so please go to the polls and vote for the candidates who share your values. Urge your friends and family to vote, too.

“Thank you and God bless you.” 

The third-party outfits doing TV ads have gotten significant attention, but Reed’s group is doing a massive voter-turnout operation that will include millions of mail pieces and voter guides aimed at social conservatives.

Sarah Palin: Beltway Thuggery Is Ruining Our Country

Posted by Dr. Fay on October 30, 2010

From Governor Palin’s Facebook Note:

Lisa, are you going to shut down my Facebook page for writing this?

by Sarah Palin on Saturday, October 30, 2010 at 12:20am

Yesterday, Lisa Murkowski’s hired guns threatened radio host Dan Fagan, and more importantly, the station that airs Fagan’s show, with legal action for allegedly illegal “electioneering.” The station, unlike Murkowski, who is flush with millions of dollars from vested corporate interests, does not have a budget for a legal defense. So it did what any small market station would do when threatened by Beltway lawyers charging $500 to $1000 an hour – they pulled Dan Fagan off the air. 

Does all this sound heavy handed? It is. It is an interference with Dan Fagan’s constitutional right to free speech. It is also a shocking indictment against Lisa Murkowski. How low will she go to hold onto power? First, she gets the Division of Elections to change its write-in process – a process that Judge Pfiffner correctly determined had been in place without change for 50 years. She is accepting financial support from federal contractors, an act that is highly questionable and now pending before the FEC. And today, she played her last card. She made it clear that if you disagree with her and encourage others to exercise their civic rights, she’ll take you off the air.  

The concept of “electioneering” involves several issues, but typically refers to campaigning at the polls, which is appropriately banned. Under federal law, it can also mean paying for advertising on broadcast media during a federal election cycle, and it requires disclosures if done by groups and corporations. Fagan used satire to mock Murkowski’s write-in efforts and encouraged Alaskans to run as write-in candidates. That is not illegal. That is free speech.

Individuals like Dan Fagan have a fundamental right to speak their minds without threats from the incumbent Senator from Alaska. It is hard to find a constitutional right Americans cherish more than the right to free speech. This was a right Joe Miller, as a decorated combat veteran – a tank commander tested in battle, was willing to die to defend. Dan Fagan has not always agreed with me, but I will gladly defend his right to speak freely on his radio show, which he has often used to criticize me. In fact, Fagan has actually used his radio show to attack and insult me, my husband, my children, and my family in just about every way possible. He was especially insulting to my son, who left for a war zone to defend Fagan’s right to attack our family. But when I was his governor, I never would have dreamed of threatening his right to free speech. I support him in this fight because this D.C. Beltway thuggery, as exemplified by Lisa Murkowski’s latest threat, is ruining our country. The powers that be want ordinary Americans to sit down and shut up and let the ruling class ride us right off the debt cliff we’re heading towards with Obama, Pelosi, and Reid steering the nation’s car. We can’t let them. Now is the time to put aside our past differences and stand up to the establishment powers.

This whole episode confirms again why we need to elect Joe Miller. Lisa, you can sue me if you want (you won’t be the first). But I will not be intimidated from speaking my mind. Your intimidation just empowered us liberty-loving Alaskans. Are you really that out of touch?
