Steele says he would be happy with Gov. Palin as GOP nominee in 2012

Posted by joshpainter on November 1, 2010

RNC Chairman Michael Steele defended his party’s 2008 vice presidential candidate against recent attacks, telling CNN this morning that Sarah Palin’s critics in the GOP establishment need to “shut up”:

“These Republican leaders who don’t put their names in print but make comments in shadows need to shut up,” Steele told American Morning’s John Roberts Monday. “We’re focused on winning elections tomorrow night. We’re not focused on 2012.”

Steele’s comments were in reference to a Politico article out Monday in which a string of unnamed Republicans, feeling Palin could not be a viable presidential contender, said it will be the party’s goal to prevent her from running in 2012.

Other establishment Republicans have also gone on the record to criticize the former Alaska governor – most recently Karl Rove, who last week said Palin lacks the gravitas to sit in the oval office.

But Steele disagreed, saying he would be pleased with Gov. Palin as the party’s presidential nominee in 2012:

“If she goes through the process and the Republican primary voters vote for her, absolutely I would be happy,” said Steele. “Why wouldn’t I be?”

Anonymous GOP Sources: ‘Stop Sarah Palin’

Posted by Adrienne Ross on November 1, 2010

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

Politico put out a Palin piece highlighting more…you guessed it…anonymous sources speaking negatively about Governor Palin. This time the comments are attributed to the establishment Republicans and 2012 hopefuls who supposedly are committed to one cause: “Stop Sarah Palin.”

Politico reports (emphasis added):

Top Republicans in Washington and in the national GOP establishment say the 2010 campaign highlighted an urgent task that they will begin in earnest as soon as the elections are over: Stop Sarah Palin.

Interviews with advisers to the main 2012 presidential contenders and with other veteran Republican operatives make clear they see themselves on a common, if uncoordinated, mission of halting the momentum and credibility Palin gained with conservative activists by plunging so aggressively into this year’s midterm campaigns.

[…]

“There is a determined, focused establishment effort … to find a candidate we can coalesce around who can beat Sarah Palin,” said one prominent and longtime Washington Republican. “We believe she could get the nomination, but Barack Obama would crush her.”

This sentiment was a nearly constant refrain in POLITICO interviews with top advisers to the candidates most frequently mentioned as running in 2012 and a diverse assortment of other top GOP officials.

[…]

Top Republicans, from presidential hopefuls Mitt Romney and Tim Pawlenty to highly influential advisers such as Karl Rove and Ed Gillespie, are said to be concerned she will run, and could win, according to the officials.

A Palin adviser declined to comment.

Shortly after the article was posted, Palin went on Fox News, where she is a paid commentator, to criticize POLITICO and any unnamed critics.

“[T]hese are the brave people who want to lead the nation and run the world. But they’re not brave enough to put their name in an article,” she told Greta Van Susteren. “I learned back in the day that who, what, when, where, why of journalism. You report that facts; you let other people decide what their opinion is going to be. So having unnamed sources in an article like this is very, very, disappointing, you know. And it doesn’t do anybody any good. It doesn’t educate anybody. … I’m getting used to it though.”

Read the full article here.

I agree with the Governor. These are the same people who want to run the country and tackle national security, yet they hide their identities out of fear. Pitiful!

Nearly all of these interviewees insisted on keeping their views on background, fearing the wrath of conservative grass-roots activists who are enthralled with the former Alaska governor and who have made plain that the establishment’s disdain for Palin and her devotees is mutually reciprocated.

The truth is they’re scared to death that Governor Palin will do what she did in Alaska throughout her political career: destroy the good old boys network, expose their corruption, and whip their tails in elections. This all just goes to show that the “anonymous sources” who think they, not she, are ready to lead the nation, clearly are not. As common sense people have been saying since November of 2008: “Run, Sarah, Run.”

Politico’s piece proves what Palin has been saying all along

A recent Politico piece reports, “Top Republicans in Washington and in the national GOP establishment say the 2010 campaign highlighted an urgent task that they will begin in earnest as soon as the elections are over: Stop Sarah Palin.”

Politico says, “Interviews with advisers to the main 2012 presidential contenders and with other veteran Republican operatives make clear they see themselves on a common, if uncoordinated, mission of halting the momentum and credibility Palin gained with conservative activists by plunging so aggressively into this year’s midterm campaigns.”

The article has been called your typical Palin ‘hit’ piece and another attempt to create inhouse fighting within the Republican party. The fact that nobody was willing to go on the record and be quoted, attacking the GOP’s lead kingmaker, is a sure sign that the article should be questioned. Sarah Palin addressed that fact on ‘On the Record with Greta Van Susteren’…

“These are the brave people who want to lead the nation and run the world, but they’re not brave enough to put their name in an article,” she told Greta Van Susteren. “I learned back in the day that who, what, when, where, why of journalism. You report that facts; you let other people decide what their opinion is going to be. So having unnamed sources in an article like this is very, very, disappointing, you know. And it doesn’t do anybody any good. It doesn’t educate anybody. … I’m getting used to it though.”

Another statement in the article seemed to surprise many…

“Still, she has never faced serious criticism in public in a campaign setting, and it’s impossible to anticipate how she would react to it…”

When Greta Van Susteren asked Palin about this statement, she arched her eyebrows and replied, “Holy Jeez. Where have they been the last couple of years?”

“Maybe in the end I can pull a Sharron Angle,” Palin added. “I can send them flowers and say thank you for what it is that they did in this piece because I think it will draw attention to what I’ve been trying to draw attention to and that is the sad state of affairs in the world of journalism today. It is unfair to Americans to not be able to trust what should be a cornerstone of our democracy–a free press, a fair press. When you can’t trust what it is they are reporting, and of course you can’t trust something if it’s only citing unnamed, anonymous sources. You can’t trust them, then where we are in the state of journalism is a scary, sad place to be.”

Rush Limbaugh on the Politico anti-Palin hit piece

Posted by joshpainter on November 1, 2010

Rush had Politico’s Allen-Van DeHei hit piece on Gov. Palin pegged before it ever hit the web or the wires. On his Friday show, the king of the talk show hosts called it:

“Now, folks, I want to tell you something here. I saw that… Where did I see this? Oh! Oh! I didn’t have a chance to reply to it. I got an e-mail from Mike Allen of The Politico last night. They’re working on a story; they may have already run it.”

“Some Republican leader has told them that the Republican leadership is right now as we speak coalescing to find somebody to oppose Sarah Palin. They didn’t identify whoever this ‘Republican leader is,’ so I can’t tell you who it is, but they say that there’s a Republican talking to them at Politico that they are trying to find somebody to beat back Palin, from the Republican establishment, because they are convinced that if Palin is the nominee, the party loses. That’s, at least, what they say. It could also be they’re scared to death that Palin wins it’s the end of them: The Republican establishment.”

“Mike Allen wanted to take my reply, and I got his e-mail in the midst of a whole bunch other stuff. I just now remembered it so I haven’t had a chance to reply. But let’s see. This kind of thing, I think the reason I didn’t drop everything and reply is ’cause the little antenna go up. It could be a disinformation campaign before the election. Why write a story right now about Palin in 2012? What’s the point of running a story like that right now if not then to sow dissension in the ranks?”

Emphasis ours.

Bristol and Mark Will Dance the Viennese Waltz on Week 7 DWTS

Posted by Dr. Fay on November 1, 2010

Since last week, Bristol and Mark have been rehearsing the Viennese waltz as well as a group dance for Week 7 DWTS competition.  As with the rock ‘n roll marathon, the dancing couples will get a combined score from their individual dance and their group dance.  Mark  writes in his DWTS Journal on USAToday (h/tp DanceBristolDance):

And now for the big reveal: This week we have the Viennese Waltz! I had a suspicion that the VW would be our dance step this week.After the group rehearsal Tuesday night, we spent six hours on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday getting the routine down. And because Bristol is doing well with it, I feel confident we’ll get the intricacies nailed down this weekend. All she needs is some polish on her toe-pointing, arm movements and head position, which is exactly where she was last week. If you pay attention to her feet and steps, she really is fantastic in that area and in fact, I’m willing to say her footwork is the best in the competition. Take that, competitors!

Speaking of group rehearsal, let’s just say that it’s good to see my old pal Kristi (Yamaguchi). I may or may not be on her team for the group routine, so you’ll have to tune in to see. Group routines typically are not difficult; they’re just quite time consuming. They are such a hurdle because it takes time away from our regular dance routine, which really puts a lot of pressure on Bris to get it all down and remember. We had the first high-intensive group rehearsal Tuesday night, as you know, and our next on is on Saturday.

This week’s show will be the 200th episode of Dancing with the Stars, and 50 contestants from past shows will be there.  We’re looking forward to another stellar performance by Bristol and Mark.  Be sure to tune in and vote, vote, vote for Bristol and Mark!  (See the voting information at the bottom of this post.)

On Thursday,  Bristol and Mark taught Marco Rubio some dance moves during an interview with Extra (h/tp DanceBristolDance).  CelebMagnet.com reported:

The super-happy power duo showed up at The Grove today for an interview with Mario Lopez of Extra.

I have to say Bristol is even super cuter in person and has a glow about her smile. And Mark may be the nicest celebrity in Hollywood and is one of the most talented dancers ever on DWTS

A fan asked Team Ballin’ if the two were dating because she said they look cute together and seem to have great chemistry. Mark responded, “We are keeping it pro, we’re keeping it pro! Of course dancing requires great chemistry between partners, so, if that is what you’re feeling between Bristol and me, then, I am doing my job right. Thank you.”

Kit Hoover of Access Hollywood Live  interviewed Bristol and Mark at rehearsals last week (h/tp DanceBristolDance) and asked Bristol if she wanted her Mom to run for President and what she thought of her nickname “Bristol the Pistol.”

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Maria Menounos, also of Access Hollywood, interviewed Bristol and Mark last week also.  She asked Bristol what she thought of Tina Fey’s impression of her mother.  Maria also asked them the question their viewers e-mailed the most:  “Are you dating?”  Both Bristol and Mark said, “Nope,”  but they left a little tease at the end.

Bristol reached a total of 10,000 followers on her Facebook page this weekend and posted this comment:

Yay!! 10,000 likes :) thank you all for your support!
