What’s next for Bristol?

Posted by Denise Spencer on November 29, 2010

After 10 weeks on Dancing with the Stars and gaining over 30,000 Facebook fans in 61 days, the sky is the limit for one Bristol Palin! She may no longer be on America’s TV sets every Monday and Tuesday night, but Bristol showed that she could capture people’s hearts no matter their political persuasion. I believe that Bristol showed us once again that the underdog with spirit is truly the one who wins in the end. To me, Bristol stands for: B = beautiful, R = resilient, I = inspiration, S = spiritual; T = tenacious, O = outstanding, L = loving… When criticized, always remember to DANCE! Thank you for reminding us all of that Bristol! Can’t wait to see what the world holds for you.

UPDATED: Fans Wait in Line Up to 16 Hours for Sarah Palin’s Autograph in Houston

Posted by Dr. Fay on November 29, 2010

Several hundred people showed up in Houston for Governor Palin’s America by Heart book signing.   Some waited in line overnight to get their wristbands for the event.

Sonia Azad  at abc13 wrote this report:

They’ve waited all night, some even camping out for the chance to meet Sarah Palin. The former Governor of Alaska is in Houston right now as part of her nationwide tour for her new book “America by Heart.”

The Borders book store on Kirby and Alabama started letting people at 9am and security was very tight. No bags, no jackets, no cell phones and no cameras were allowed. Everything had to be left in your car or at security. Palin was positioned at a table upstairs and she started signing books at 11am.

It was a long wait for people like Trina Roberson, who was first in line, getting to the Borders book store yesterday at 5pm.

“I don’t stand in line for 16 hours for anything,” said Roberson. “But this is worth it.”

Some have spent hours in the rain, waiting for wristbands and the chance to see the former vice presidential candidate. One of the most controversial political figures in America, Palin is promoting her new book, “America by Heart.” It’s said to celebrate American values, with a focus on Middle America.

Dwayne Roecker started reading the book this morning.

“I like the ideas that she is putting forth. I certainly believe in a lot of the things that she does, so I like the book so far,” he said.

The former beauty queen turned Alaska Governor turned best-selling author and political commentator is adding a new line to her resume — reality TV star. Her show debuted last week. Her fans say it’s only added to her stardom, which they hope catapults her into the 2012 race for president.

“I hope she’s our future president in 2012,” said Palin supporter Elisha Sultzer. “I think she’s awesome! I think she’s All-American.”

“Because she’s not like the other politicians, you just don’t believe them, trust them,” said Palin fan Steven Townley. “She seems like a genuine person. She just seems normal, you know?”

This is Palin’s second book tour. Last year she traveled by bus to 35 cities to promote her memoirs. This time her tour is smaller, and she’s playing her strength targeting key Republican states. A sign of what’s to come? It’s possible.

“There’s two kinds of books, political books — ones written by former presidents who kind of recap their lives and key decisions — and there are books of the future, which are written by people that either may want to seek the presidency or want to stay out in the political foreground for whatever the reason it may be,” said KTRK political consultant Peter Roussel. “So I guess the latter would be the case here this morning.”

You have to have a copy of her book that was purchased at a Borders book store. There is a limit of two books per person. You have to have a wristband to get in. The book store handed out 500 wristbands at 9am.

There was not one single protester gathered today. She will wrap up her book tour in her home state of Alaska.

UPDATE:

The signing was scheduled to begin at 11 a.m. Monday at the store, located at Kirby and W. Alabama, but die-hard fans were lined up as early as 5 p.m. Sunday.

[…]

The publisher, HarperCollins, said the book is “framed by her strong belief in the importance of family, faith and patriotism” and covers everything from American history and culture to current affairs.

HarperCollins said the book will also feature selections from classic and contemporary readings that have moved Palin, including the nation’s founding documents, great speeches and sermons, literature and even some of her favorite songs and movies.

Even those fans who spent the night outside the store said getting the chance to meet Palin was well worth the wait.

“She’s not only gorgeous, she’s awesome. She’s smart, she’s articulate … I mean, she’s that idol that every woman wishes they could be,” Palin fan Elizabeth Lyman said.

Palin Is Appalled at Obama Administration’s Delay in Dealing with Wikileaks Fiasco

Serious Questions about the Obama Administration’s Incompetence in the Wikileaks Fiasco

by Sarah Palin on Monday, November 29, 2010 at 3:17pm

We all applaud the successful thwarting of the Christmas-Tree Bomber and hope our government continues to do all it can to keep us safe. However, the latest round of publications of leaked classified U.S. documents through the shady organization called Wikileaks raises serious questions about the Obama administration’s incompetent handling of this whole fiasco.

First and foremost, what steps were taken to stop Wikileaks director Julian Assange from distributing this highly sensitive classified material especially after he had already published material not once but twice in the previous months? Assange is not a “journalist,” any more than the “editor” of al Qaeda’s new English-language magazine Inspire is a “journalist.” He is an anti-American operative with blood on his hands. His past posting of classified documents revealed the identity of more than 100 Afghan sources to the Taliban. Why was he not pursued with the same urgency we pursue al Qaeda and Taliban leaders?

What if any diplomatic pressure was brought to bear on NATO, EU, and other allies to disrupt Wikileaks’ technical infrastructure? Did we use all the cyber tools at our disposal to permanently dismantle Wikileaks? Were individuals working for Wikileaks on these document leaks investigated? Shouldn’t they at least have had their financial assets frozen just as we do to individuals who provide material support for terrorist organizations?

Most importantly, serious questions must also be asked of the U.S. intelligence system. How was it possible that a 22-year-old Private First Class could get unrestricted access to so much highly sensitive information? And how was it possible that he could copy and distribute these files without anyone noticing that security was compromised?

The White House has now issued orders to federal departments and agencies asking them to take immediate steps to ensure that no more leaks like this happen again. It’s of course important that we do all we can to prevent similar massive document leaks in the future. But why did the White House not publish these orders after the first leak back in July? What explains this strange lack of urgency on their part?

We are at war. American soldiers are in Afghanistan fighting to protect our freedoms. They are serious about keeping America safe. It would be great if they could count on their government being equally serious about that vital task.

Benyamin Korn: Sarah Palin Gaining in Support from ‘Educated Jews’

Posted by Dr. Fay on November 29, 2010

Excellent article by Benyamin Korn, founder and director of  Jewish Americans for Sarah Palin and Jews for Sarah.com:

Sarah Palin Gaining in Support from ‘Educated Jews’

Monday, November 29, 2010

Benyamin Korn
Special to the Jewish Week

In recent weeks, a number of prominent Jewish intellectuals have been publicly praising Sarah Palin. This despite a recent poll, reported by veteran analyst James Besser (Nov. 26), that well-educated Jews appear to be overwhelmingly opposed to Palin. How do we explain this discrepancy?

Besser focuses on a recent poll showing Palin with stronger support among voters in general who are “less educated” and “less affluent.” That poll made no reference to Jewish voters, but Besser argues that since Jews are “more educated than the population at large and more affluent,” therefore one may safely assume they oppose Palin too.

Let’s recall that pundits made similar assumptions about Ronald Reagan when he was a candidate for the Republican presidential nomination in 1980. Reagan also had considerable appeal among the less educated and the less affluent; surely educated and affluent Jews would support President Jimmy Carter – or so the pundits reasoned. But on election day, the majority of American Jews repaid Carter’s disdain for Israel, his impotence in rescuing the Americans held hostage in Iran, and his mismanagement of the American economy, by abandoning him for Ronald Reagan, the most conservative Presidential candidate of the post-Vietnam era. Reagan received the largest share of the Jewish vote of any Republican presidential nominee in U.S. history.

While it is certainly too early to assume that 1980 will repeat itself in 2012, there are signs of growing respect for Gov. Palin’s policies and positions – especially among some of the Jewish intellectuals whom Besser presumes now oppose her.Just two days after the Nov. 2nd elections, Palin authored a 1500-word manifesto, published in the pages of National Review, detailing her strategy to “renew, revive, and restore” America according to free-market economics, energy independence, a strong national security policy and traditional moral values.

John Podhoretz, editor in chief of Commentary magazine, immediately hailed the Palin Plan as “brilliant.” It is perhaps no coincidence that his father and predecessor at Commentary’s helm, Norman Podhoretz, had endorsed Palin in the Wall Street Journal in March of this year, and was an early supporter of Ronald Reagan’s presidential ambitions at a time when many of his colleagues also questioned Reagan’s intellectual bonafides.

Then hear the views of Seth Lipsky, founder and editor emeritus of the English-language edition of The Forward, now editing at The New York Sun. For Lipsky, a serious student of the Constitution and author of the recent book The Citizen’s Constitution: An Annotated Guide, the genius of Palin’s platform is in her advocacy of “Constitutional conservatism.”

According to Lipsky, Palin insists on adhering “to the original intent [of the Constitution], the principles of the Founders,” a determination “to wrestle with what they were actually talking about,” not what contemporary policy wonks wish they had been saying. “This is an idea for our times, if there ever was one,” Lipsky concludes, because unlike other contemporary conservative strains, “every American has a relationship to the Constitution.”

Palin’s Constitutional conservatism, in Lipsky’s view, “is unifying, uplifting, and inclusive.”

Or consider William Kristol, a Fox News contributor, founding editor of one of America’s most important journals, The Weekly Standard, and son of renowned Jewish intellectual Irving Kristol. Bill Kristol was one of Palin’s earliest supporters, and remains so.

Even U.S. Senator Joseph Lieberman, I-CT, certainly no knee-jerk conservative, recognizes that Palin’s effectively address wide-spread concerns: “Sarah Palin for a lot of people has become a spokesperson. People worried that government has forgotten them, has grown too big, that the deficit is growing too large, and in some sense that we’re not being as strong as we should be in the world — Governor Palin has spoken to those concerns as much as anyone.”

Lieberman, Kristol, Lipsky, and the Podhoretzs are sophisticated, educated, thinking Jews who appreciate Palin’s heartfelt support for Israel, her forceful and informed advocacy for energy independence, her strong stance on national security, and her fealty to traditional moral values (sometimes we forget these are Jewish values, too!)  All are bellwethers of the increasing respect for Sarah Palin amongst us – the educated and affluent American Jews.

Benyamin Korn, former executive editor of the Jewish Exponent, is director of Jewish Americans for Sarah Palin and JewsForSarah.com. He hosts “Jewish Independent Talk” every Sunday from 5 to 6 PM on WNTP News-Talk 990 AM in Philadelphia.

Andrew Malcolm: More good news for Sarah Palin

Posted by joshpainter on November 29, 2010

Things have been going Gov. Palin’s way lately, and Andrew Malcolm sees even more good news for the possible presidential candidate:

Fans are lining up in the cold 24 hours in advance to buy her new book during the 16-city promotion tour for “America by Heart.” “This lady will be the next president of the United States of America,” said an enthused Brian Roper in Tulsa.

She’s got a hit cable TV show. Polls of Republicans show the former Alaska governor is currently a most popular candidate for the party’s 2012 presidential nomination.

And now, believe it or not, even President Obama has an encouraging word for her. The Democrat tells ABC’s Barbara Walters that he’s not paying attention to his possible White House competitor.

[…]

That would be repeating the same mistake some of Obama’s Democrat competitors made back in 2006-07.

They thought that an inexperienced elected state official who’d quit that job to run for higher office, who could give a real good speech but had zero foreign policy experience and who had only written a couple of best-selling books, could not possibly present a serious political challenge to established Washington veterans.

And we all know now how accurate that thinking was.

More at Top of the Ticket.

Sarah Palin’s Alaska gives us a reason to aim higher

Posted by loricalabrese on November 29, 2010

Whether you love her or hate her, you have to admit one thing-Sarah Palin is one tough cookie. As we experienced the third episode of “Sarah Palin’s Alaska” on TLC, we were privy to venture into the Last Frontier where Alaskans still hunt and catch their own food, warm their houses with the wood they’ve chopped and love the beauty and the wildlife of Alaska. A point Palin makes in her new book, America By Heart, is how we forget how much the frontier is a part of our national character and the lifestyle we’ve been witnessing each week on Palin’s show is one that has gone out of style in much of the rest of the country. I have to admit, I can’t relate to donning rubber fishing pants, beating a halibut with a club, scrubbing the deck of a boat, filleting fish, and scrubbing bloody fish guts off a table. But I find myself glued to the television, wanting more…
