March Is “Dana Milbank Free Month” Following His “Palin Free Month”

Posted by M.Joseph Sheppard At Palin4President2016 on February 22, 2011

 Not that it matters a tinkers cuss what Dana Milbank thinks or does or who he boycott’s.

 However, since he got a huge amount of publicity for his column with his “Mea culpa” about his obsessive Palin mentioning, why should those on the right give him another round of undeserved publicity when he triumphantly announces on March 1st that he has gone “Palin free” for a whole month? 

 Not that it matters to anyone except the Kos Kids and the like, and in fact it would be better if he, and the rest of the Lame Stream Media shut up altogether about Palin, as they can only find things to criticize her about-or make things up about and then criticise her.

 I hereby pledge, and I ask the entire right blogosphere and media to do so to, that I will not mention Dana Millbank for the entire month of March and, since it will take next to no effort, I will not mention him again- ever.

Todd Palin sheds dress slacks for Iron Dog race

Posted by loricalabrese on February 22, 2011

Todd Palin shed the dress slacks on Sunday for some of the most remote and rugged terrain in Alaska during the world’s longest snowmobile race, the Iron Dog. Call him the First Dude, or whatever you’d like, but make sure you include tough.

Now I’m not from Alaska, so it’s hard for me to even fathom what this race entails. Today’s Iron Dog course distance is over 2,000 miles, starting in Big Lake with a halfway stop in Nome and finishing in Fairbanks. Participants cover some of Alaska’s most remote and rugged terrain while confronting some the harshest winter conditions.  Races are typically run in temperatures well below freezing, and -20°F (-30°C) to -50°F (-45°C) air temperatures are common without taking wind chill into effect. To avoid frostbite, some drivers even apply duct tape to their faces! Survival skills are essential, making it the World’s toughest snowmobile race, which is why all teams in race classes are a team of two persons and two snowmobiles for safety.

As Sports Illustrated wrote in 2009, “Todd Palin grew up in rural Alaska, fishing in slime-­spattered rain pants, and for most of the past two decades he’s worked in a British Petroleum plant on the frigid North Slope, monitoring turbines and pumps with a tool belt slung from his hip. Nothing else could have prepared him better for the rigors of the Dog — the -60 degree cold snaps, the darkness, the mechanical breakdowns, the wipeouts at 95 mph.”

I guess nothing else could have prepared him better as he’s a four-time champion of the Iron Dog. Palin has competed in the race every year since 1993. In 2008, 400 miles (640 km) from defending his championship, he was injured and broke his arm when he was thrown 70 feet from his machine. He was sent to the hospital, but managed to finish in fourth place.

This year, Todd is partnered with Eric Quam as team #11. On Sunday, Sarah sent Todd off with a kiss and as he heads into day 3, Palin and Quam lead the pro-class as others have been forced to leave the race. For instance, shortly after leaving Big Lake onto the Iron Dog trail, competitor,Todd Minnick hit a large chunk of ice and was thrown from his snowmobile at high speed. The landing was hard enough to cause severe pain and hematoma (leg or hip) that made it near impossible for him to even get up or walk. His partner Nick Olstad was immediately off of his sled rendering aid by lifting Todd from overflow then carrying him back to the lake to find a ride to the hospital.

I find it quite comical that ever since the debut of Sarah Palin’s Alaska, critics have taken shots at Palin’s hunting skills, and tried to dispute the Palin image as independent, tough, and self-sufficient. Well, as Todd continues his odyssey over the course of the Dog that’s so destructive to snow machines that, of the 600 or so teams that have started the race since 1984, only about 40 percent have finished, I’d like to see somebody dispute that.

It’s a shame that Sarah Palin’s Alaska has ended because coverage of the Iron Dog Race would have been a ratings machine. However, for the first time in its 28 year history, the Iron Dog Race will be broadcasting live and streaming live online. You can watch the live coverage here. You can also follow the Iron Dog Race on twitter.

Iron Dogs Roarin’

by Sarah Palin on Tuesday, February 22, 2011 at 4:21pm

It’s no secret I’m cheering for Team #11 in this year’s Iron Dog race! Todd and his racing partner Eric Quam are doing very well and helping lead the pack as they’ll soon be near the 1000-mile half-way point in Nome. They’ve been breaking trail through three feet of new snow! All these athletes are rugged and tough. Please keep all the racers in your prayers.

On a side note, there’s always buzz about fake Sarah Palin Facebook and Twitter accounts. Please know that this is my only authentic Facebook account and SarahPalinUSA is my only authentic Twitter account. Pay no attention to the fake accounts and their fake messages.

 News: Governor Sarah Palin Visits Task Force Arctic Eagle Soldiers in Kosovo 

69th Public Affairs Detachment  

Story by Sgt. 1st Class Paul Wade

Governor Sarah Palin Visits Task Force Arctic Eagle Soldiers in KosovoSoldiers from the ‘Land of the Midnight Sun’ got a huge morale boost when Alaska’s governor, Sarah Palin, and the state’s adjutant general, Maj. Gen. Craig Campbell, trekked the approximately 5,000 miles to see their National Guard troops from the 49th state and to show their support for the service members of the Multi-National Task Force-East KFOR 11 mission.

“Our Soldiers are America’s heroes and I want to do whatever I can do to show them support and take the time to do so, to travel and to see them,” said Palin, who became Alaska’s 11th governor in November 2006 and the first female to be elected.

The 130 troops, assigned to 1st Battalion, 207th Aviation Regiment, who wear the patch depicting the stars of the Big Dipper and the North Star, form the bulk of Task Force Arctic Eagle, who’s main contribution to keeping the peace in the Kosovo region is commanding the skies with their UH-60 Black Hawks.

“I truly appreciate you from the bottom of my heart. I have such a sincere, great appreciation for all that you are doing to serve your state and your country,” said Palin.

Camp Bondsteel Soldiers welcomed with smiles, flash bulbs and a whirlwind tour. That evening she met with senior leadership hosted by the commanding general of MNTF-E, Brig. Gen. Keith Jones, and was briefed on the current situation in the eastern sector. The next morning Palin was treated to a unique breakfast of pancakes and smoked salmon by her fellow Alaskans and to hear what the rank and file had on their minds.

“[The governor] is real down-to-earth and as a mother of a teenager, she is someone I can relate to,” said 1st Lt. Sarah Payeur, Task Force Arctic Eagle, aviation liaison officer, 1-207th Avn. Regt. “With her son in the Army, serving in Iraq, she completely understands what we are going through and to me that is important when it comes to knowing what family support is all about,” said the Eagle River, Alaska native.

Following a meet-and-greet opportunity, interested service members at the CBS theater, Gov. Palin and the Alaskan delegation were whisked away to visit a Task Force Artic Eagle adopt-a-school program in the nearby town of Ferizaj/Urosevac.

“I think it is great what our troops are doing in helping these students learn English,” said Palin, who took a sidewalk tour of the town with one of the students, Albana Mani, who explained what the program is all about. The teenagers learned more about her during an exercise that involved reading and answering questions about her biography.

“We are very proud of our program and to show it off to the governor was an honor. It was important to let her see how we interact with the local community, to let her know the impact we are having with these students,” said Spc. Robert Sapp, a chaplain’s assistant with the 1-207th Avn. Regt., from Anchorage.

The tour of her short visit wound down when she returned to the flight line of CBS and took part in the pinning of newly promoted Soldiers and awarding achievements.

“The characteristics that you all embody; your self-determination and self-sufficiency, combined with teamwork that is needed in order to get the job done. You embody that. You have that discipline and tenacity and that patriotism that I pray our younger generation will adopt. Our country will be better off if we have more of you out there serving something greater than self,” concluded Palin.

“It was an honor to host Gov. Palin for her visit to Camp Bondsteel. The Soldiers were elated to see her and appreciated that she made the long trip from Alaska to show her appreciation for their service,” said Maj. Matthew Schell, the 1-207th’s acting battalion commander.

Media Makes Themselves Look Even More Silly With Their “Anyone But Palin” Campaign

Posted by M.Joseph Sheppard At Palin4President2016 on February 22, 2011

They are dogged, the media, and you have to give them credit for digging in with blindfolds on.

 In their “anyone but Palin” obsession, which level it surely is at, the media are absolutely determined to ignore what the person in the street is actually saying, as these are the hoi polloi and they don’t know what is good for themselves.

You would search high and low to find any media reports whatsoever regarding the poll results which support Palin because they don’t meet with the plan the media has. In spite of poll after poll of grass roots Republicans and thousands of conservative blog readers who responded to such polls, who chose Palin/Huckabee overwhelmingly-up to 40% of the vote, well above double Romney’s and daylight between their result and the media darlings such as Thune/Pawlenty/Daniels/Christie and the 26 ‘candidates’ they have managed to push at one point or another.

 Their plan is, of course, to foist on the party the candidate acceptable to the Beltway, East/West Coast cabal. ”A Bob Dole type is what is needed” they advise. What they are determined about on the other hand is that, in the view from Olympus where the elite mind resides, Palin has committed the unpardonable sin of not sucking up to them and is therefore to be discarded.

Who to choose to be their sacrificial lamb for Obama? Nothing is more certain that, as with McCain in 2008, once they have settled on “their” nominee and he is safely nominated, they will turn on him with a vengeance as part two of their plans going forward . Heaven help the candidate whose past will be worked through with the finest of fine tooth combs for every bit of scandal they can dig up or invent. Palin of course is fireproof as they have done everything possible to destroy and have failed So far they have touted Romney as “the next in line-which schedule the GOP always follows”.

Needless to say the GOP does not always follow the next in line program and anyway surely the Vice-presidential candidate is more “next in line’ than the one who finished in third place for the nomination. Even Blind Bob can see that Romney is going nowhere and the rank and file will not support him outside of New Hampshire.

This is a terrible disappointment to the media as Romney would be the ideal “Bob Dole” losing candidate they could chew up and spit out-or more likely ignore as they carry Obama majestically in a sedan chair to the finish line.

 Next they turned to Chris Christie .Outspoken but in a favorite Uncle sort of way. From an Eastern state, laughs with the boys, liberal in his social attitudes and-best of all-attacked Palin. Tragically for them, and as hard as they try to ignore his statements, he is absolutely committed to not running. But that doesn’t stop the headlines encouraging him “Christie Lights a Fuse Under GOP Lawmakers” What to do?

Thune looks like he is not running, Pawlenty has not traction-but just when things look gloomy and some media types seem actually reconciled to Palin they discover Mitch Daniels as their new hero. Article after article sings his praises “It’s Mitch Daniels Moment” the man who is “many moves ahead on the chess board” Best of all his calling for “a truce on social issues” is seen as a clever move which, instead of alienating the base is so clever that the “truce” is not a “surrender” rather it will only last until he wins the nomination and becomes president.

These media people have their heads so far up their backsides, in their anyone but Palin PDS, they have lost all sense if they think the rank and file will swallow that nonsense. Perhaps in sensing they are on a hiding to nothing with the latest Christie/Daniels bandwagon, the media is creating the brand new GOP nominee, Wisconsin’s embattled Governor Scott Walker. “If Walker wins the battle he could be the GOP’s 2012 nominee” they trumpet “Run Walker Run”.

To reinforce their new position-Chris Christie gets thrown under the bus “Walker actually does what Christie says he would” That is actually a good read because it illustrates exactly what will happen to any nominee besides Palin-they will get ripped to shreds, yes even Christie for all his bellicosity-in fact what they show as his strongest asset will be torn apart in the name of “civility”

They are so transparent it is all rather sad. At the end of the day it will be the GOP delegates who chose the nominee-not the media and the elite talking heads like Krauthammer and Rove, and right now the polls say it is Palin they want.
