Piper Palin-America’s New Sweetheart, How Can Romney Etc. Compete With The Palin Double Team?

Posted by M.Joseph Sheppard At Palin4President2016 on June 2, 2011

Piper Palin, is innocently, which is the very best of all, of course, building on her awwww introduction at the 2008 GOP convention when she slicked back Trig’s hair to steal the show from Mom from time to time on the Palin family bus tour.

This little girl is almost impossible to resist in her charm and protectiveness of her mother. It is hard enough for the competitor candidates to have to compete with Sarah but to have to compete with this double team of Palins seems an impossible task.

Even an old stager like Jeanne Moos can only find nice things to say in this charming report.

National Poll: Sarah Palin Crushes Mitt Romney Among GOP Base Voters

Posted by Gary P Jackson on June 2, 2011

By Gary P Jackson

In the latest polling from PPP, the Daily Kos’ official pollster, Sarah Palin is tied with Mitt Romney for the Republican nomination. Both capture 16% of a very crowded field. Sarah leads the field considerably among Conservatives though. Between those who describe themselves as “somewhat Conservative” and “very Conservative” it’s Sarah Palin 35% Mitt Romney 30%.

This is bad news for Romney as the base of the Republican Party is Conservative. So is most of the nation according to decades worth of polling.

PPP also proclaims the only way Romney [or Pawlenty] can win is if the Rapture actually occurs. And they have the poll numbers to back this up!

The poll also shows that it doesn’t matter if Michele Bachmann runs or not, the Republican nomination is Sarah Palin’s to lose.

It also shows, as does every other poll, that Newt Gingrich’s campaign is D.O.A.. Whatever support he may have once has has collapsed.

PPP’s first national poll looking at the Republican Presidential race since Mike Huckabee and Donald Trump announced they wouldn’t run finds Mitt Romney and Sarah Palin in a tie at the top with 16% each. Tim Pawlenty at 13% and Herman Cain at 12% are also in double digits with Michele Bachmann, Newt Gingrich, and Ron Paul each at 9%, and Jon Huntsman at 4% rounding out the field.

Romney’s support is built on moderate and center right Republicans, while Palin’s winning the most conservative faction of the party. With moderates Romney’s at 26% with only Pawlenty at 15% also reaching double digits and Palin in third at 8%. With ‘somewhat conservative‘ voters Romney likewise leads with 19% to 15% each for Pawlenty and Palin. But with voters identifying as ‘very conservative‘ Romney finds himself well back in 5th place at 11% with Palin leading the way at 20%, followed by Cain at 15%, Bachmann at 13%, and Pawlenty at 12%.

If Palin doesn’t run Romney leads with 20% to 13% each for Gingrich, Bachmann, and Pawlenty, 12% for Cain, and 11% for Paul. It may seem surprising that Palin not running would take Romney from a tie to a 7 point lead. But that’s because most of Palin’s support goes to people who poll at only single digits when she’s in the picture. 22% of Palin voters say they would go for Bachmann, 17% to Gingrich, and 15% each to Romney and Paul. Cain and Pawlenty, already in double digits even with Palin in the field, each pick up only 2% of her supporters so Romney gains ground on them with her out of the picture.

This poll provides more evidence for the collapse of Newt Gingrich. In addition to having just single digit support more primary voters (44%) now express an unfavorable opinion of him than have a positive one (39%).

One game changer that could help Romney and Pawlenty’s prospects for the nomination? The Rapture. 18% of GOP primary voters believe it will occur in their lifetimes and 31% of them support Palin to 15% for Romney, 11% for Cain and Gingrich, and 10% for Pawlenty. Let’s say that Harold Camping’s revised projection of October for the event comes true and that all the Republicans who think it’s coming go up. With those voters taken out of the equation Romney leads with 16% while Pawlenty moves into second at 14%, and Palin and Cain tie for 3rd at 13% each.

Sarah Palin also has, by far, the highest favorability rating among the bunch at 61%.

Q1 Do you have a favorable or unfavorable opinionof Newt Gingrich?

Favorable……………………………………………….. 39%

Unfavorable ……………………………………………. 44%

Not sure …………………………………………………. 18%

Q2 Do you have a favorable or unfavorable opinion
of Sarah Palin?

Favorable……………………………………………….. 61%

Unfavorable ……………………………………………. 30%

Not sure …………………………………………………. 9%

Q3 Do you have a favorable or unfavorable opinion
of Mitt Romney?

Favorable……………………………………………….. 54%

Unfavorable ……………………………………………. 30%

Not sure …………………………………………………. 16%

PPP also asked respondents if the Rapture occurred, would Sarah Palin or Barack Obama go to heaven. Most think Sarah would. Most think Obama would not.

Can Governor Palin rewrite the political playbook?

Posted by joshpainter on June 2, 2011

– by Josh Painter
*
Sarah Palin’s One Nation bus tour of the American northeast seems to have met or exceeded her expectations, so much so that she and her team will try out the innovative concept to the Midwest and the South. Associated Content contributor Mark Whittington opines that if she decides to run, expect more innovation in the form of her campaign structure:

Clearly Palin is conducting a test run of what may be the most unusual presidential campaign in recent American history. She means to bypass the Republican Party establishment, including the cadre of precinct chairman whom political candidates usually cater to, and take her case directly to the voters. Many pundits regard this as a mistake and even a sign Palin has no intention of running. The party apparatus is considered crucial for creating on the ground organization that a candidate needs to get out the vote.

Palin may be thinking of a different model, one that seems to have worked in the past two or so years to shake the political foundations of the United States: the Tea Party movement.

The Tea Party has not been a hierarchical organization in the classic sense. It is one example of what law professor and Instapundit Glenn Reynolds calls an “Army of Davids,” in which individuals band together, self-organize, and go forth to effect change. The Tea Party has been wildly successful in this, putting hundreds of thousands of people in the streets and organizing voters for the 2010 election.

It could be that Palin is thinking along these lines if she pulls the trigger on a presidential run in 2012. Activists, bound together by social media, would band together and work cooperatively to elect Palin, just as the Tea Party worked together to oppose President Obama and get more conservatives elected in 2010.

[More]

There are, of course, naysayers in the chattering class who doubt that the political ground can be broken with with a campaign organized using such a cutting edge model. But if Gov. Palin were to get herself elected president in this fashion, she will have rewritten the political playbook.

Boston Herald: GOP Megastar Sarah Palin Turns The Freedom Trail Into A Street Party

Posted by Gary P Jackson on June 2, 2011

By Gary P Jackson

Everywhere Sarah Palin and her family go on their One Nation Tour she is mobbed by supporters. This is significant because she’s been doing this in deep blue states. Sarah Palin is the type of person who loves to mingle with the crowds. She’s always been one of the best at retail politics. She’s a people person, and connects one on one very well.

Thursday morning Sarah and her family toured the historic sites in Boston. They were well received. As the Boston Herald points out, not everyone is happy though. The Republican establishment is in high dudgeon because Sarah’s trip to Boston, and her clambake tonight in New Hampshire, is completely overshadowing Mitt Romney’s presidential announcement.

Boo-frickin’-hoo.

GOP megastar Sarah Palin turned the Freedom Trail into a street party this morning as she toured Boston’s historic sites with her family in her latest stop in a headline-grabbing East Coast trip.

She first stopped by the Old North Church and gift shop where she posed for photos and handed out copies of the Constitution to kids.

The throng of supporters then followed her to Paul Revere’s House where a worker at the gift shop gave Palin a T-shirt with the famous saying, “Don’t Tread on Me.”

I feel at home,” Palin said to her dad, Chuck Heath, who was next to her inside the gift shop. “This is good. This is so nice.

Her dad told the Herald after that his daughter is from a “normal family” and they are all enjoying the trip. “We support her in whatever she does. She’s very honest.”

On Bunker Hill, Palin did a little politicking criticizing Mitt Romney, who announced his candidacy for president today, saying his health care mandate for Massachusetts could hurt him.

In my opinion, any mandate coming from government is not a good thing,” Palin told reporters.

Palin is driving straight into a Republican Party furor as her headline-grabbing One Nation tour threatened to overshadow today’s presidential announcement by Romney, a party front-runner in most polls.

She will certainly be in New Hampshire to rain on Mitt’s parade,” wrote Massachusetts GOP spokesman Tim Buckley in an e-mail obtained by the Herald. Bay State GOP officials confirmed yesterday that Buckley wrote the e-mail, but said it was a private exchange and not an official communication.

I guess she blew in with the storm,” sniffed state House minority leader Bradley H. Jones (R-North Reading) yesterday, a longtime Romney supporter. “She may generate a lot of attention, but given the choice between seeing Sarah Palin and Mitt Romney, I’d much rather see Romney.”

But Palin fans, who breathlessly tracked her bus trip from New York to Boston’s Long Wharf Marriott yesterday via Twitter, gloated that Romney’s noon 2012 presidential announcement in Stratham, N.H., is doomed to obscurity.

Mitt Romney will be talking to himself,” said Judson Phillips, leader of Tea Party Nation. “It’s stupid for him to announce in the middle of her tour. He’ll just get buried in the noise. He’ll be an afterthought.

Romney is expected to return to the Bay State for a big-bucks fund-raiser at the Four Seasons tonight hosted by former Republican gubernatorial candidate Charlie Baker. Neither Romney nor Palin’s spokespeople returned requests for comment.

Palin launched her tour on Sunday, and has passed through Washington, D.C., Maryland, Virginia and Pennsylvania. Yesterday, she made stops at Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty in New York City before heading to Boston where, Palin said, she planned to visit the Freedom Trail.

On the jaunt, the former Alaska governor has played coy with reporters, who have been reduced to tracking her movements via Web and street rumor in a media scavenger hunt. Palin has told reporters she is still considering running for the Oval Office but hasn’t made up her mind, and has declined to notify local Republican officials of her itinerary in any of her East Coast stops.

Handing out copies of the Constitution to kids and visiting locals in such a historic city. Looks like Sarah is spreading the message of Liberty and Freedom, just as she promised she would.

George Will Makes The Comparisons Between Sarah Palin and Ronald Reagan Complete

Posted by Gary P Jackson on June 2, 2011

By Gary P Jackson

The comparison’s between Sarah Palin and Ronald Reagan are quite natural. Sarah herself is a great student of Reagan, quotes him often, and has the same common sense approach to governing. Like Reagan she’s a no-nonsense leader who gets things done. It’s her adherence to solid conservative principles that has earned her the admiration of supporters from coast to coast.

Of course, while it’s gratifying to look at all of the valid comparisons of the two great leaders, one must also look at how both were portrayed by the corrupt media, the democrats, and establishment Republicans. Here is where you find the comparisons absolutely stunning.

Both Ronald Reagan and Sarah Palin started out as sportscasters. Reagan did radio, Sarah did TV. In fact, she wanted to work for ESPN. The elites trashed Reagan as a “B-movie” actor who once co-starred with a chimp. Never mind Reagan also played one of Hollywood’s most iconic and enduring characters, “ George Gipp” in the 1940 classic “Knute Rockne All American.” No matter, being an actor, was a sure sign Reagan wasn’t fit to be President. Might as well forget his decades of political activism on behalf of Conservatism, or his time as Governor of California. Doesn’t matter, he was an actor thus “unserious

The elites have used the same tact against Governor Palin, a woman with 20 years of public service that includes city councilwoman, Mayor, Chairman of Alaska’s oil and gas regulatory commission, and Governor. All of this is negated because she starred in, and was executive producer of, a nature-travel-adventure series on The Learning Channel [TLC] and her oldest daughter was a contestant on ABC’s Dancing With The Stars, at least according to the left, the media [but I repeat myself] and the GOP elite.

Sarah Palin, like Ronald Reagan, isn’t “serious” because she, like Ronnie, is talented and good on camera. OK. Such is the logic of the “smart” people.

Clark Clifford, former Secretary of Defense for LBJ called Reagan an “amiable dunce.” In the 21st century, such civility is dead, so our “betters” just call Sarah Palin “stupid“! Even among the hoity-toity, the level of discourse has fallen greatly. At least in the old days, someone would insult you with a little style and flair!

The media along with the Republican elites all cringed and made fun of Ronald Reagan when he referred to the Soviet Union as an “Evil Empire” and even his own staffers lost their minds when he said these world changing words:”Mr Gorbachev, tear down this wall!” Former Carter and Mondale staffer [and faux conservative] Charles Krauthammer said Sarah Palin should “leave the room” after she coined the term “death panels” to describe government health care rationing, and the board of unelected government drones who would determine who should live and die.

Sarah Palin used the term “death panels” in a lengthy policy piece, where she called out Obama’s health care adviser Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, who has written extensively about the need to ration care, giving priority to those who were deemed “productive to society.” She has been proven 100% correct on the facts. My personal guess is Krauthammer was just miffed because he wrote thousands of pretty words trying to make a similar point, and no one noticed.

The way he continually attacks her and proclaims she isn’t “smart,” makes me think Krauthammer, the former Carter adviser and Mondale speech writer, is miffed that a housewife from Wasilla is better at turning a phrase than he is. Of course, Chuck is a genius, he chose to work on the losing team against Reagan …. TWICE.

The media also laughed at Sarah when she inadvertently created the new word “refudiate.” They had a cow when she playfully tweeted that Shakespeare created new words too. Funny thing happened though. British MEP Daniel Hannan, a political superstar in his own right, and a self proclaimed “Shakespearean obsessive” wrote at the time:

Sarah Palin, never misunderestimate Shakespeare

I am thoroughly taken with Sarah Palin’s neologism. People often incorrectly use the word “refute” to mean something like “deny” or “reject“, only stronger. We could do with a new word to fill this gap and, since both “refute” and “repudiate” are already occupied with their actual meanings, neither can be pressed into service. “Refudiate” occupies the space perfectly, and deserves to become part of every politician’s vocabulary.

The handsome Alaskan politician is quite right to say that Shakespeare came up with countless new-fangled words – including “countless” and “new-fangled“. Among his coinages, as far as we can tell, are accommodation, assassinate, denote, dislocate, equivocal, eventful, hobnob, inauspicious, lacklustre, laughable, perplex, raw-boned, submerge, time-honoured, unmitigated and zany.

Read more here.

Oh, and the New Oxford American Dictionary named “refudiate” it’s “word of the year” saying:

From a strictly lexical interpretation of the different contexts in which Palin has used ‘refudiate,’ we have concluded that neither ‘refute‘ nor ‘repudiate‘ seems consistently precise, and that ‘refudiate‘ more or less stands on its own, suggesting a general sense of ‘reject.’ “

I wonder how many words our “betters” in the media and the GOP establishment can say they’ve created a new word, let alone say it was recognized as word of the year in a major dictionary?

This brings us to George Will, a sincerely pompous ass, who once wrote an entire column in the Washington Post called “Demon Denim” bemoaning the fact Americans love to wear blue jeans and how it has destroyed the world, …. or something.

This “ man of the people” is a real piece of work. The typical Beltway elitist hack. Will passes himself off as a “conservative” but nothing could be further from the truth.

Mark Levin recently said this of George Will and Charles Krauthammer:

George Will missed the Reagan Revolution not only in 1976 but as late as 1980. In the 1979 Republican Presidential Primary, his first choice was Howard Baker, his second choice was George H. W. Bush, and his third choice was Reagan.

Not until days before the 1980 general election did he write on November 3, 1980 that Reagan deserved election.

For all his wonderful columns, the Republican electorate better understood the needs of the nation and the excellence of a potential Reagan presidency than Will. It is hard to believe he was so wrong about a matter of such great import, despite Reagan’s presence on the national scene for many years.

Charles Krauthammer was not only wrong about Reagan, as late as 1980 he was a speech-writer for Vice President Walter Mondale. Krauthammer, like Will, not only missed the significance of the Reagan candidacy, but was putting words in the mouth of a terribly flawed politician from a philosophical perspective.

So much for either’s ability to pick winners or know what the hell they are talking about when it comes to politics.

On Memorial Sunday Will, perched in all of his pomposity over at ABC, went on yet another crying jag and upped the ante by proclaiming we should be very worried about a President Sarah Palin, because, you know, she’ll have the nuclear codes and might just blow us all up! Whitney Pitcher talks about the jackass and his nutty statement here.

This is nothing new for fear mongers among America’s Ruling Class. In 1964 LBJ’s team ran the now infamous “Daisy” ad with the young girl picking a daisy apart as a sinister voice counted down to a nuclear launch. The ad proclaimed Barry Goldwater would destroy the world with nukes. America was so outraged, the ad only ran once.

Now I can’t find examples of George Will saying it, but plenty of GOP hacks were saying that not only would it be a disaster to let Ronald Reagan have the nuclear codes, the more insane were claiming Reagan would have us in a nuclear war with the Soviet Union within days of taking office!

Folks, this is called desperation. They threw everything they had at Reagan and couldn’t stop him. They are throwing everything they have at Sarah Palin, and not only can they not stop her, hell, she’s getting stronger!

We’ve talked about A.B. Culvahouse here before. Long time readers will remember Culvahouse was a Reagan adviser and chairs one of Washington’s most prestigious law firms. We first talked about Culvahouse after everyone was falsely claiming the McCain campaign never vetted Sarah. Just picked her and went with it. Such is the pathetic laziness of the media, and those who read and believe that sort of nonsense.

Of course the facts were quite different. She was highly vetted by Culvahouse and his team. Culvahouse and Sarah have a history too, His firm represented Exxon-Mobil, and Palin had been on the opposing side. He knew first hand how tough she was.

In April of 2009 Culvahouse spoke at the National Press Club. Mark Silva wrote at the time: [emphasis mine]

Arthur “A.B.” Culvahouse, a prominent Washington attorney who served as White House counsel to President Ronald Reagan during the president’s final two years and led Sen. John McCain’s search for a running mate – a search that included a “long list” of 26 candidates – told the tale today of picking Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.

After the vetting of all the candidates, and paring them to a short list, McCain asked Culvahouse for the “bottom line” on Palin.

“”I said, ‘John, high risk, high reward,”’ Culvahouse said today. “His response – ‘You shouldn’t have told me that. I’ve been a risk-taker all of my life.”’

Culvahouse was addressing the Republican National Lawyers Association today at the National Press Club, and C-SPAN was running a camera.

There were three rules,” Culvahouse said of himself and McCain. “He was the decider. There was no one between him and me…. There was no one who was going to say, ‘This one is on the list, this one is off the list’… Third… he could not pick anyone that I had not vetted.

[ …. ]

They considered many.

We had 26 people on the long list. It was a blind basis… They did not know they were on the list,” said Culvahouse, who had a staff of 30 lawyers helping him who wrote 50-page reports on the candidates.

Gov. Palin told us everything – everything except the pregnancy (of) her daughter was on the written questionnaire,” he said of Palin, who discussed teenage daughter Bristol’s pregnancy privately. “She told me there was one issue she wanted to talk about. We knew everything going in.

Palin “has lots of presence. She fills up a room,” said Culvahouse, noting that some of his most cynical colleagues also were impressed with her.

Culvahouse, commenting on the later, damaging interviews that Palin gave to CBS News anchor Katie Couric, suggested that the wrong impression had come from those sessions – such as the idea that Palin was not familiar with Supreme Court rulings.

She clearly did… My law firm represents Exxon in the Valdez matters,” he noted. “Until she became governor, Gov. Palin was a plaintiff in that case...”

They asked her why she wanted to be vice president — “the question Judge Bork was not prepared to answer — why he wanted to be on the Supreme Court,” said Culvahouse, who also handled Bork on the Hill.

They asked her if she is prepared to use nuclear weapons in the defense of the American homeland, he said, and they asked her if, say Osama bin Laden should be spotted, but taking him out would result in many other casualties, would she take the shot?

She knocked those three questions out of the park,” he said.

“She would have been a great vice president… She wouldn’t have been ready on Jan. 20,” he allowed, but then most people wouldn’t, save for Dick Cheney when he joined George W. Bush’s ticket in 2000.

“Qualifications in this town meant someone with a great resume,” Culvahouse said today. “As John… directed me, it was someone who had the capacity to be president.”

.

Here’s video of Culvahouse at the National Press Club:

So you guys tell me. Who’s opinion would you trust: A guy who missed Reagan’s brilliance not once, but twice, or someone who professionally vets candidates for Vice President of the United States, and handles Supreme Court Appointees?

I will give Georgie some credit though. With the fear mongering over nuclear weapons, the comparisons between Ronald Reagan and Sarah Palin are pretty much complete!

I bet Ronnie and Maggie would agree [that George Will is the “amiable dunce“]!

Sarah Palin Dines With Donald Trump

Posted by Gary P Jackson on June 2, 2011

By Gary P Jackson

Sarah Palin is having a blast pointing out the nation’s history, what makes this the greatest nation on earth, while she she tours historical sites on her One Nation Tour

She’s also having incredible fun tweaking the press, who weren’t invited, but have decided to tag along. [and bitch the entire time]

Tuesday night found the Palin’s in New York City. They plan to visit the Statue of Liberty and other sites on Wednesday. While in town, Sarah and her family had a standing invitation to visit Donald Trump, so they stopped by.

The whole crew went to a pizza parlor in Times Square.

The Washington Post had this to report: [emphasis mine]

On day three of Sarah Palin’s unconventional bus tour came the most surprising moment by far. The former Alaska governor and her daughter Piper dined tonight with media mogul Donald Trump and his wife Melania at a pizza place in Times Square. Palin met Trump at his apartment in Trump Tower, near Rockefeller Center; they rode from there in his limo to the restaurant, part of a New York City chain.

Asked on her way into the restaurant about Trump’s past political donations, Palin responded, “I think I’ll go change his mind and make sure he’s contributing to constitutional conservatives.’’

She didn’t ask me [to run with her] but I’ll tell you, she’s a terrific woman,” Trump said as they walked in. Trump’s special counsel, Michael Cohen, told reporters that the pair had talked in the past about meeting up whenever Palin found herself in New York.

The group shared pepperoni, sausage, and meatball pizzas.

Palin is staying in Jersey City, where she arrived via bus this afternoon after a short trip to Philadelphia. Tomorrow, she is expected to take an early morning boat from there to Ellis Island, before the crowds of tourists arrive. Then she will greet the first ferry of visitors before taking her boat back and hitting the road.

From there, Palin’s plans are something of a mystery, although she is expected to head for New Hampshire. Details of her week-long tour of historic Northeast sites have remained secret at every step. Reporters have been scrambling to trail her at each stop.

[ …. ]

Every time you go to New York, you’ve got to see Donald Trump,” Palin said on her way out. “I approve of his independence.” She did an interview inside the restaurant with television reporters. Trump refused to comment as he left, saying only that he thought Palin was “good” and that they talked about “different things.

Two members of the U.S. Navy, Daniel Delgado and Daniel Johnston in for Fleet Week and hanging out at a friend’s bar down the street, ended up being enlisted by both parties’ bodyguards to perform impromptu crowd control as the stars walked out.

The first person who approached Palin outside the restaurant was Diane Barone, a union activist from Youngstown, Ohio in town for IUE-CWA contract negotiations. She shook Palin’s hand and would not let go, telling the former governor she disagreed with her positions on unions. Palin responded calmly that her father had been a union member and that making things better for working people “is something on which we can agree.” She said afterwards that she doubted she could change Palin’s mind, but you never know: “I thought she would ignore me and she did not, she shook my hand.

The Miami Herald adds:

NEW YORK — Sarah Palin and Donald Trump exchanged words of admiration Tuesday after a brief meeting at the real estate magnate’s penthouse in a Manhattan skyscraper bearing his name.

Palin, the former Republican vice presidential nominee, said she and Trump shared similar ideas for improving the U.S. economy, while Trump called Palin a “terrific woman and a terrific friend” who he hoped would seek the GOP presidential nomination.

[ … ]

What do we have in common? Our love for this country, a desire to see our economy put back on the right track,” Palin told reporters after a 15-minute meeting with Trump outside the Trump Tower, where he owns a three-floor penthouse.

To have a balanced trade arrangement with other countries across this world so Americans can have our jobs, our industries, our manufacturing again. And exploiting responsibly our natural resources. We can do that again if we make good decisions,” Palin said.

Trump demurred when asked if he would support a Palin presidential candidacy.

She didn’t ask me for that. She came up as friends,” Trump said. “She’s a great woman, a terrific woman and a terrific friend. I’d love her to run.

Palin added, “We both agree that competition is good and the more folks in that primary, the better.

After the meeting, Trump and his wife, Melania, rode in a stretch limousine with Palin, her parents and youngest daughter, Piper, to have dinner at a pizza restaurant in Times Square. The Palins planned to visit Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty Wednesday morning.

Interesting how two different media outlets report the same event, huh?

We’ll have a lot more on the tour and the media later in the week when the dust settles. Suffice it to say, watching the media this week, and listening to their caterwauling, is entertainment better than you can buy at price.

Here are some more photos of the Trumps, The Palins and the Heaths dining:

Shushannah Walshe posted a photo on her site here.

The lamestream media waiting on the Palins to show up at Trump Tower:

BTW, if you’ve never watched a member of the lamestream media have a nervous breakdown in real time, I highly recommend following Shushannah Walshe on Twitter. She’s a fine example of how wee-wee’d up the media is over Sarah Palin’s One Nation Tour!

More to come ….

Preview of 2012 GOP Ticket? Sarah Palin and Allen West at Rolling Thunder

Posted by Gary P Jackson on June 2, 2011

By Gary P Jackson

Sarah Palin and Congressman Allen West met up on Sunday and Rolling Thunder. Sarah talks about meeting him here.  Of course, she was one of the very first to endorse the Lt Colonel for Congress.

When asked, if they had a say, many, if not most would chose Lt Colonel West to be Sarah’s running mate, myself included!

Below West talks with Todd and meets Piper.

A Great Polling Day For Palin. Huge Lead in “Hot Air” Poll And In 1st place Tie In PPP Poll

Posted by M.Joseph Sheppard At Palin4President2016 on June 2, 2011

The Hot Air poll for June has Palin not only well out in front of the pack on just under 35% but, significantly, the mere mention by her that Governor Perry would be a suitable candidate saw him vault from nowhere to second place.


This shows that the endorsement power she has, which was on display in the 2010 elections to such an impressive degree, is undiminished. No wonder too that Romney tip toed around her criticism of his health care policies today.


Significantly too, her polling in the Hot Air  review is in an ascending mode, and that only part reflects the massive media coverage she is now getting. No doubt as more GOP voters conclude she is running they will give her an even higher level of support as her bus tour continues through the vital primary states.



The Hot Air Poll mirrors the new ascendancy of Palin in the nationwide PPP (D) Poll which has her now tied for the lead amongst Republican voters with Romney.

Freedom Trail

Posted by Ron Devito on June 2, 2011

It’s a sunny day in Boston but our thoughts are still with those affected by yesterday’s storm, which ripped through the western part of the state.

There’s so much history here. It’s amazing how much of our nation’s history can be found in just two and a half miles on the Freedom Trail.

We visited some of the cradles of American freedom today – Old North Church, Paul Revere’s home, Bunker Hill – and met many patriots young and old. We met Augie Parziale and his family who took us through the family business. Their bakery has been in business for more than 100 years and going strong because of hard work and determination to fight through the government’s sea of red tape.
