PALIN FLASHBACK: Palin ‘grateful’ for top spot

Posted by Sarah Palin Web Brigade on February 23, 2011

This article by Andy Barr at Politico describes how Going Rogue became a best-seller only two days after the announcement of its release date.

Palin ‘grateful’ for top spot

By ANDY BARR | 9/30/09 8:03 PM EDT

Two days after the release date of Sarah Palin’s book was announced, it’s already become the top seller at both Amazon.com and BarnesandNoble.com.  

Palin’s publisher announced Monday that the former governor of Alaska and Republican vice presidential candidate had finished her memoir, “Going Rogue: An American Life,” early and was moving the release date up from the spring to November 17.  

A Palin source told POLITICO that she “is very grateful” for the strong early sales.

“This book has taken off like a rocket,” the source said.  

HarperCollins will print 1.5 million copies for the book’s first run, the same number that was printed for late Sen. Ted Kennedy’s memoir “True Compass.”  

Kennedy’s book, published earlier this month, currently stands at number six on the Amazon list.

A publishing industry source told POLITICO that they “cannot remember a non-fiction book taking off like this in the pre-order market. It became number one only a couple of hours after nothing more than a date announcement. It is truly unprecedented.”  

Much of the 400-page book is based on journals Palin kept during her vice-presidential run.

Palin collaborated on the book with Lynn Vincent, a San Diego-based writer who has co-written several books and was previously a features writer for World magazine, a conservative Christian publication.  

HarperCollins is co-publishing the book with Zondervan, a company that publishes evangelical books, and whose mission statement is “To be the leader in Christian communications meeting the needs of people with resources that glorify Jesus Christ and promote biblical principles.”

Palin: Here’s to Libya’s freedom

Posted by loricalabrese on February 23, 2011

As protests in the Middle East continue and Moammar Gadhafi’s hold on Libya weakens, Sarah Palin once again questioned the reaction from the White House on Tuesday in a Facebook post titled, “Here’s to Libya’s Freedom.”

“It’s a little perplexing looking at the White House today,” Palin said. “There was a statement on the horrible earthquake in New Zealand, and certainly our hearts go out to all those affected by this horrible natural disaster. But nothing on the slaughter in Libya?”

On Tuesday, Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi vowed to fight the growing anti-government protesters rebelling against his 42-year-old rule until “his last drop of blood.”

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton responded, “We believe that the government of Libya bears responsibility for what is occurring and must take actions to end the violence.” However, Sarah Palin sees the issue in Libya differently than the other protests taking place in the Middle East.

Palin added, “For four decades, this tyrant has held power. Gaddafi was Osama before Osama hit the scene. He ordered the bombing of a disco in Germany to kill Americans. When he paid the price for that – after President Reagan rightly ordered retaliation – he directed his agents to blow up Pan Am Flight 103. They did, and more than 250 innocent people died. Gaddafi tried to come in from the cold in 2003 – scared by the demonstration effect of Iraq. But we should have no illusions. Gaddafi is a brutal killer and Libya – not to mention the world – would be better off if he were out of power. Now is the time to speak out. Speak out for the long-suffering Libyan people. Speak out for the victims of Gaddafi’s terror.”

Palin stressed that NATO and our allies should look at establishing a no-fly zone so Libyan air forces cannot continue slaughtering the Libyan people.

“We should not be afraid of freedom, especially when it comes to people suffering under a brutal enemy of America,’ Palin said. “Here’s to freedom from Gaddafi for the people of Libya.”

Palin responds to Facebook account speculation

Posted by loricalabrese on February 23, 2011

Headlines on Tuesday and Wednesday read, “Sketchy, Sketchy! Sarah Palin Uses Secret Facebook Account to Praise Herself,” and “Sarah Palin Has a Fake Facebook Account.”

So what’s this new Palin controversy all about?

The headlines stem from a leaked manuscript by a former aide, Frank Bailey, who is looking to publish a tell-all book about his time working for the former Governor of Alaska. The manuscript, entitled “Blind Allegiance To Sarah Palin: A Memoir Of Our Tumultuous Years,” was first leaked by the Anchorage Daily News last Friday and is based on more than 60,000 emails that Bailey sent and received while working for the former vice presidential nominee. In the leaked manuscript, the aide provides Palin’s personal gmail address.

As a result, the blog Wonkette decided to run a Facebook search on that address, and they found what many are declaring a secret Palin account under the name “Lou Sarah.”

There’s been plenty of speculation since Louise is Palin’s middle name and the profile “likes” both Sarah and Bristol Palin.

However, Sarah Palin responded Tuesday night to the accusations on her official Facebook page while addressing the Iron Dog race…

“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.”

Which version of Sarah Palin are you going to believe?

Posted by reagantman on February 23, 2011

If you didn’t know it, you’d think there are two Sarah Palins. The first one is a vindictive dumbbell who doesn’t know that Africa is a continent. The other Sarah Palin, the real Sarah Palin, is a self made woman who is happily married, has raised five children, has been a mayor, an oil commissioner and a governor, has written two best selling books and is a millionaire. One is a caricature drawn from the minds of the Palin deranged. The other is uncut and unfiltered. Which one are you going to believe?

Desperate liberals see the writing on the wall. They see public employee unions being stopped dead in their tracks – the days of fattening themselves on taxpayer dollars drying up as quickly as the money. They see Americans embracing conservative values again. They see the real Sarah Palin and it scares them to death. That’s why they can’t let the rest of us see her. That’s why it is imperative that they get the voters to see their version of Sarah Palin.

The media and the Alaska bloggers have been wasting their time and resources trying to dig up dirt on the fake Sarah Palin, which they present to the American people in place of the real Sarah Palin. It’s dog chases tail syndrome. In their obsession to destroy her, they have filed dozens of frivolous ethics complaints, written thousands of hit pieces and alleged all kinds of wrong-doing. After all that, they have nothing but a caricature.

The Sarah Palin caricature they have been selling us is the one getting her butt kicked in the polls.

Asked about her low poll numbers — a recent Gallup poll showed that over half of Americans viewed her unfavorably — Palin audibly sighed. “Yeah,” she said, later adding, “I get my butt kicked.”

“I look at those poll numbers and I say well, if I’m going to do this, then obviously I got to get out there and let people know who I am, what I stand for, and what my record is. I can’t rely on a liberal-leaning press,” she said.

This is because the real Sarah Palin has not yet re-introduced herself to the American people. The Left trembles in fear as they await the moment when the brakes lock and they skid helplessly as she announces her candidacy for president and millions of her supporters pour out of the woodwork. They will become their own caricatures, alien creatures grabbing their heads, screaming out like a cartoon character in Pink Floyd’s “The Wall.”

The media frenzy will begin. The major newspapers, networks and websites will light up with Palin-mania. Twitter and Facebook will be stretched to capacity as the chatter begins in earnest.

Then, they will try to sell us on the first Sarah Palin again and again. They will be selling us the fake Sarah Palin all the way through her second presidential term if they have to. They will not give up their Sisypheian efforts to stop her. But resistance may be futile once the real Sarah Palin hits the debate stages, the streets and the diners that make up the presidential campaign trail.

Frank Bailey’s and Jeanne Devon’s manuscript suggests without evidence that Sarah Palin broke some kind of campaign finance law and contradicted her Troopergate testimony, or something like that. I don’t know. Maybe she knocked off a liquor store, too (but they decided not to use that one in this manuscript). As Ian Lazaran at Conservatives4Palin points out:

Nobody in the media has conceded that Bailey has failed to produce even one e-mail that the Governor allegedly wrote that would implicate her in any wrongdoing when it comes to the RGA ad or would directly contradict any statement that she made under oath in the Troopergate saga. The media is shamelessly allowing Bailey and an extremist like Jeanne Devon to get away with claiming that they have thousands of e-mails from Governor Palin without also noting that none of the e-mails prove that she ever engaged in any improper or illegal activity.

The media has also failed to note that all of the e-mails that Bailey claims to have received from Governor Palin have yet to be authenticated. Remember that Bailey admits to having access to her e-mail account and knew the password that she used to get into her account.

Because he doesn’t have any e-mails that prove the Governor engaged in unethical conduct, Bailey resorts to using e-mails that she allegedly wrote to slam her character, intelligence, and competence.

They have tried everything they possibly could to destroy the real Sarah Palin. Yes, alleging what they are alleging, they are telling us that they have exhausted all means available to stifle Palin’s political speech and now all they got left are false criminal allegations. It’s called totalitarianism, folks. They want to railroad her.

Don’t sweat it, though. Although the fake Sarah Palin is still taking the hits in the polls and in the liberal media, the real Sarah Palin always trumps. When the real Sarah Palin spoke directly to business owners on Long Island, they liked her. Check out these video clips. One attendee said (at the 1:40 mark):

Nobody took their eye off of her. They listened to her every word. They were appreciative about a lot of the things she said. And they connected. And she connected.

The moderator, Kenneth Law, a Democrat, said “I think the Long Island business community walked away probably feeling better about her than before they walked in the door.” (2:00 mark of the ABC video. )

When the real Sarah Palin walked past the fake one on Saturday Night live in 2008, the ratings went up. When the real Sarah Palin debated Joe Biden, she beat him. The real Sarah Palin got 5 million people to watch the premiere Episode of “Sarah Palin’s Alaska.” The real Sarah Palin electrified the crowd at the 2008 Republican National Convention. In fact, that was why they invented the fake Palin in the first place.

At some point, even those who dislike Sarah Palin are going to get sick of the lying Left. It’s one thing to preach to the choir and feed them red meat. It’s another to lie to the choir and feed them bad meat.

There is only one real Sarah Palin. You either agree with her or disagree with her. Everything else is BS.

Patrick Roberts: Palin takes another important step toward 2012

Posted by joshpainter on February 23, 2011

– by Josh Painter
*
In his “People and Politics” column at Irish Central, Patrick Roberts notes that Gov. Palin’s Q&A in Long Island last week marks “a new phase in her campaign for president.” The large crowd at the Long Island Association event was composed of business people from both sides of the political aisle, Roberts notes, and our Sarah “won them over– big”:

She took questions on all topics and displayed what ‘ Newsday’ called an impressive knowledge on a range of subjects.

This is the real Sarah Palin, the one you can hardly find behind the media image and the sneering stuff of late night comedians.

Given how undistinguished this Republican presidential field is, Palin looks more and more like an option for the GOP.

Instead of pining for Chris Christie they may want to look North to Alaska for their best hope.

She brings excitement, commitment and a sense of something new to a very staid political party.

[More]

Roberts has consistently pointed out that Sarah Palin is being underestimated by the punditocracy and the Beltway elite: “As she proved in Long Island she’s as smart as a whip, looks great, is confident and has a plan whether you like it or not.” His prediction that she will be the Republican nominee is on the record, and Roberts says he has no reason to alter that forecast.

Sarah Palin: Here’s to Libya’s Freedom

Governor Palin’s Facebook Note:

Here’s to Libya’s Freedom

by Sarah Palin on Tuesday, February 22, 2011 at 6:59pm

It’s a little perplexing looking at the White House today. There was a statement on the horrible earthquake in New Zealand, and certainly our hearts go out to all those affected by this horrible natural disaster. But nothing on the slaughter in Libya? The protests in many places in the Middle East affect regimes that have cooperated with the U.S. on issues from peace with Israel, fighting al Qaeda, hosting our military forces, or cooperating against Iran’s nuclear ambitions. Gaddafi’s Libya is different. For four decades, this tyrant has held power. Gaddafi was Osama before Osama hit the scene. He ordered the bombing of a disco in Germany to kill Americans. When he paid the price for that – after President Reagan rightly ordered retaliation – he directed his agents to blow up Pan Am Flight 103. They did, and more than 250 innocent people died. Gaddafi tried to come in from the cold in 2003 – scared by the demonstration effect of Iraq. But we should have no illusions. Gaddafi is a brutal killer and Libya – not to mention the world – would be better off if he were out of power. Now is the time to speak out. Speak out for the long-suffering Libyan people. Speak out for the victims of Gaddafi’s terror. NATO and our allies should look at establishing a no-fly zone so Libyan air forces cannot continue slaughtering the Libyan people. We should not be afraid of freedom, especially when it comes to people suffering under a brutal enemy of America. Here’s to freedom from Gaddafi for the people of Libya.
