Governor Palin: I’m obviously still thinking about running for national office

Posted by Dr. Fay on October 14, 2012

Governor Palin talked to Shannon Bream on FOX News HQ today and answered a number of questions tweeted to the show by Twitter followers.  First, Shannon asked her what she thought of Thursday night’s VP debate.  Governor Palin responded that after you wade through the odd style of Biden’s performance and get to the substance of the debate, that it was a given that Paul Ryan won that debate.

The first Twitter question was about what Gov. Palin’s advice to Romney would be for his next debate with Obama.  She said that he should focus on the issue of  getting the government out of the way of job creators and should not engage with Obama when he tries to claim nonexistent tax increases under a Romney administration  in January.

Asked if she would ever accept a Secretary of State position in a conservative administration, Governor Palin responded that she would do anything she could to help a conservative administration.  She said that America needs to get tough with our enemies and befriend our allies.

A Tweeter with the handle of Republican Soldier asked if Gov. Palin would go hunting with him.  She said that they were in the middle of hunting season right now, filling their freezer.  She said thank you to the soldier and told him that “we love you” and “you are America’s finest.”

Asked about how Trig is doing, Governor Palin replied that he is doing “absolutely wonderful,” and that they are going to bring him with them to Bristol’s next performance on DWTS All Stars.  She said that Trig is a healthy, rowdy, 4-year-old and ‘the light of our lives.”

Her advice on energy policy was that we have wonderful opportunities for energy independence, with  untold  numbers – millions of billions of gallons  – of domestic crude under our lands and that government regulation and environmentalists are preventing us from using them.  She said they would rather outsource to other countries who do not safeguard the environment or their workforce.  Gov. Palin said we are on the  wrong road with energy policies under Obama and that that is unacceptable.

In response to Shannon’s question about the news of Arlen Specter’s death, Governor Palin said she was very sad for his loved ones.  She said that it takes guts and fortitude to serve in public office and that she appreciated his years of service in public office.

One Twitter follower asked if she planned to run for office in 2016 if Romney loses or in 2020, and if she would consider Condi Rice as her vice presidential candidate.  Governor Palin responded, “Wouldn’t that be cool – an all-female ticket!”  She said that she was obviously still thinking about running for public office in the future, that she had a good track record at state and local levels.  She indicated an interest in running at the national level and said that “we will see what the future holds.”

Mark Ballas: Our rehearsals have been a million times better since that first-ever argument with Bristol

Posted by Dr. Fay on October 14, 2012


From Mark Ballas’  DWTS blog at USA Today:

All in all, I think it was a successful week, jumping up 4.5 points from last week. Even though we’re still at the bottom of the leaderboard, I was happy with that.

Monday’s episode showed the first-ever argument between Bristol and myself. It’s really hard to capture the full breadth of a 45-minute conversation in a 90-second recap.

CATCH UP: Read Mark’s previous post

A lot of people have been asking why I “missed a rehearsal.” I had a family matter involving my mom that morning, and I did everything a cast member is supposed to regarding a rehearsal cancellation or a time change. I called production and told them I wouldn’t make it and that we should reschedule for that evening. We did make up the lost rehearsal time that night. And thankfully, my mom is doing much better.

On the upside, our rehearsals since then have been a million times better. We are much stronger as a team, and ready to push forward. I love what I do and love doing it for the fans. I always give 100% and am proud to be a member of this cast.

This week’s theme is “Rock ‘n’ Roll,” which is one of my favorite styles and favorite genres of music. In terms of dance style, it calls for a mix of the Lindy Hop, jitterbug and the like. Bristol, however, is finding the speed and over-the-top personality of the dance challenging.

I had to completely change the creative approach and choreography, which is hard because this season is “All-Stars” and the bar has been raised that much higher. I just hope we can push through and make this routine as great as it should be.

Chuck Heath Sr.: “There’s been a lot of hanky panky written about Sarah,” and Our Sarah will set the record straight

Posted by Dr. Fay on October 14, 2012

Governor Palin’s father and brother talked to Alisyn  Camerota on FOX and Friends about their book Our Sarah.  When asked why they wrote the book, Chuck Heath Sr. said, “We wanted to set a lot of records straight.  There’s been a lot of hanky panky written about Sarah.”   He said that they used 46 of her classmates as well as her pastors  and coaches as resources, and that “they tell the real story of Sarah.”  (Unlike the anonymous sources used by many of her detractors.)

Chuck Heath Jr. said there has been so much garbage written about her that a lot of people are beginning to confuse the caricatures of her, like Tina Fey’s portrayals, with the real Sarah Palin.   He said that Governor Palin was the hardest-working person he has ever known and that she has an incredibly clear sense of right and wrong and has the guts to stand up and say something when she sees things out of line.

Asked what he thought of Tina Fey’s SNL performance, Chuck Heath Sr. said he thought she did a good job, but that he didn’t agree with everything she said.  He said Sarah never said that she could see Russia from her house.  However, he said,  you can see Russia from several places in Alaska.  He especially disapproved of what David Letterman and Bill Maher did.  He said that attacks on the grandkids really get under his skin.

When asked what his favorite story in the book is, Chuck Jr. said there are a lot of favorite stories – adventure stories, life and death adventures, hunting and gold mining stories, stories about avalanches and bears.  He said these things helped form Gov. Palin’s character and make her who she is today.

He and Chuck Sr. talked about how down-to-earth Gov. Palin is and about her work ethics.  Chuck Sr. told of how he and and Gov. Palin worked for 3 days and 2 nights without sleep one time during a commercial fishing season.  He told of how she did commercial fishing, which is very hard work, for  a day and a half once with 3 broken fingers.   He said that Gov. Palin’s work ethic started when she was a child, especially in athletics,  and that she habitually works 18 to 20-hour days.

Chuck Jr. described how the Palin children hunted and fished and chopped wood during their childhood and how when they watched the Brady Bunch that they were in awe that people actually lived like that.   Alyson remarked that their childhood pictures were “cute,” and that they looked like the “wilderness Brady Bunch.”
