Sarah Palin tells Iditarod musher she eats organic but has to shoot it first

Posted by Dr. Fay on April 4, 2014

Sportsman Channel news release posted at KVNU Radio:

Sarah Palin Talks About Killing Her Own Dinner


The Sportsman Channel(WASHINGTON) — Former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin served up some down-home Alaska charm — and a platter of moose hot dogs and bear-meat chili — on her new reality TV show, Amazing America.

Hosting a television show is nothing new for the former governor, who began her career as a sportscaster for an Anchorage-area TV station and later hosted Sarah Palin’s Alaska on TLC.

She promises the new show, which premiered Thursday, will be “unscripted, uncensored, unchained.”

“I tell my kids, ‘Yes, we eat organic, we just have to go shoot it first,’” she told her first guest, DeeDee Jonrowe, a veteran Iditarod musher.

“Our meals happen to be wrapped in fur, not cellophane,” Palin said, noting she didn’t realize people actually bought meat until she attended college out-of-state.


In Thursday’s double-episode premiere, the conservative politician-turned-reality-show-host hit the trail with Jonrowe and her dogs.

“I love my life!” Palin screamed as she sped across the snow.

But Palin also made sure to slip in a reference to her political celebrity. “When I do some kind of hit on national television, and people see the background, they think it’s fake — it’s not!” she said.

Palin to Hannity: No Senate bid this year; Paul Ryan’s budget increases spending

Posted by Dr. Fay on April 4, 2014

Retrieved from iizthatiiz.

Governor Palin recorded a Hannity segment from Naples, Florida yesterday at the site where she was campaigning for Lizbeth Benacquisto .

FOX Nation posted a video and transcript:

HANNITY: All right, joining us now is former Alaska governor Sarah Palin. That is — how did that come about?

PALIN: Oh, man, you shouldn’t have shown me that! That was flippin’ funny. It’s the first time that I’ve seen it having aired. That was funny.

You know, in the neighborhood, just stopping by. Jimmy Fallon — I have great respect for him. He’s a comic genius, and I knew that he would do right by the mission that we’re on, and that is telling Putin, you know, Get your troops out of Ukraine, and America is going to be strong and we will see peace through strength. So it was fun to get to participate with Jimmy.

HANNITY: You know, I thought about you. It was just announced a couple hours ago that your old buddy, David Letterman, is retiring. And I was a — I’m a Leno guy, and I like Jimmy Fallon a lot. What is your reaction to Letterman getting out after he was so vicious to your family?

PALIN: Well, it’s cool! You know, out with the old, in with the new. Maybe he’ll start a trend when we talk about politics, too, politicians who, you know, have maybe been there in Washington, D.C., a bit too long, allow some new blood in there, some new energy, new ideas to get the country back on the right track, like Elizabeth down here in Florida, district 19, where I am, supporting the candidate who is running for the right reasons.

Maybe Letterman’s going to kind of start that trend. Out with the old, in with the new.

HANNITY: Well, any — a lot of people still want you to run. You don’t show any inclination yet that you’re interested in running for anything?

PALIN: Not for Senate this go-around, no. But in the meantime, I’m going to be out and about across the country getting, hopefully, the right people at least on the map, perhaps some underdogs, some unknowns, those who are, as I say, running for the right reasons, understanding government’s role in our lives.

Government’s role is to be as irrelevant in our lives as possible so that the individual can make decisions for themselves, their families, their businesses, and succeed and prosper, making sure that candidates who have that within them and want to allow that and those opportunities across the nation…


PALIN: Get them elected.

HANNITY: You know, I had Paul Ryan on my radio show today. And I brought up your criticism, and I read it to him, about the Ryan budget. He was adamant that if he had a chance to explain his budget to you — you had supported a previous budget of his — that he would convince you this is going to balance the budget in 10 years, it’s going to reform Medicaid, Medicare. It’s going to get rid of, you know, all sorts of spending, green energy, slush funds, and corporate welfare and workfare would…

PALIN: No. No. Well, no. Bless his heart, he probably has more faith in politicians than I do because I’ve been in this political arena on the local, state and now national level for a long time, and I don’t trust to future legislative bodies to adhere to today’s legislative body wishing that from 10 years from now, they will cut some budget.

What Paul Ryan’s budget does is, ultimately, it increases spending over 10 years $1.116 trillion. That’s trillion with a “T,” and that stands for trouble, trouble for our nation because it’s still — it still is involving deficit spending, increasing debt, and we can’t afford that because as I say, future — future congressmen and women don’t have to obey what today’s congressmen and women wish for in terms of budget cuts…

HANNITY: No, they’re not obligated.

PALIN: … that may happen in 10 years.

HANNITY: You know, I — look, I…

PALIN: No, they’re not obligated…

HANNITY: I wish we’d freeze spending…

PALIN: … and that’s why I don’t have that faith in politicians today.

HANNITY: I wish we’d freeze spending, cut one penny out of every dollar for six years, budget balanced, penny plan.

PALIN: Yes. Yes.

HANNITY: All right, Governor…

PALIN: That and we also need a balanced budget amendment.

HANNITY: That, too.

HANNITY: We need to elect those future officials who will support a budget that would be balanced.


PALIN: I mean, that’s common sense. We do that on the state level. Let’s do it on the national level.

HANNITY: All right, Governor, good to see you. Looks like you’re having fun down in Florida. Appreciate you being with us.

PALIN: On (ph) out (ph). It’s really good down here. Thank you.

HANNITY: All right, my home away from home.

Gov. Palin campaigns for Karen Handel in Georgia Senate race

Liked · 8 hrs


Great to be back in Georgia today! Thank you, South Fulton County Women’s GOP, for your sweet southern hospitality as we swung in to your beautiful state to campaign for U.S. Senate candidate Karen Handel. She’s a superb commonsense conservative who’s willing and able to serve for all the right reasons! Tomorrow I’ll post Karen’s speech from today’s luncheon which should inspire you to get enthusiastically involved and fight hard for her and other selfless Americans offering to work for us in public office. We should be so thankful she’s willing to go to Washington to shake up the status quo. Please click the link below and help send Karen to fight for all of us as the next U.S. Senator from the great state of Georgia!

Here is a video from the event:

Sarah Palin campaigns for Karen Handel in Georgia Senate race

UNION CITY | The hotly contested Senate race in Georgia was all about the political power of women Thursday, with Sarah Palin defending GOP hopeful Karen Handel against dismissive remarks by a male rival and Handel arguing that she’d nullify any Republican war-on-women talk by Democrats in the high-stakes November election.

“I would really love to see (Democratic hopeful) Michelle Nunn drop the ‘war on women’ on me,” Handel said to big applause at a luncheon with Palin for a county Republican women’s group. Handel gained notoriety as the former Susan G. Komen for the Cure executive at the center of a public outcry over the breast cancer charity’s decision, later reversed, to cut off funding for Planned Parenthood.

But Nunn, the likely Democratic nominee, has so far steered clear of the theme that proved effective for Democrats in 2012. In her first ad, released Thursday, Nunn instead appealed to Georgia’s independent voters by touting her leadership in the nonprofit Points of Light Foundation and mentioned its inspiration, President George H. W. Bush, by name.

Palin and Handel saved more of their ire for Republican rival David Perdue, a top candidate in the crowded GOP field who apparently put down Handel’s qualifications during remarks captured on video.

In the footage, the former Dollar General CEO discusses the economy and the federal deficit and notes Handel’s lack of a college degree. “There’s a high school graduate in this race, OK?” he says. “I’m sorry, but these issues are so much broader, so complex.”

Palin, the 2008 vice presidential nominee, former Alaska governor and GOP star, leapt to Handel’s defense.

“She pulled herself up. Nothing was handed to her on a platter, fed to her on a silver spoon,” Palin said of Handel during a campaign event Thursday. “For those who would criticize and mock that, it really makes me question their judgment.”

Handel, a former secretary of state, has said she left an abusive home as a teen and has used a message of overcoming obstacles as a key element of her campaigns. With Palin looking on, Handel took issue with Perdue’s comments.

“Some in this race think the problems in Washington are a little too complex for a gal like me,” Handel said. “I’m here to tell you that solving the problems in Washington is going to take guts and resolve.”

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution first reported the video in which Perdue appears to dismiss Handel’s education. His campaign spokesman said Thursday, “David was simply making the case that, based on experience, he is the best person in this race to help get our economy back on track so that we can start paying down the massive federal debt.”

The Georgia primary scramble for both parties isn’t until May 20. Seven Republicans and four Democrats are seeking their parties’ nominations.

Thursday’s early maneuvering reflects the political clout of women in Georgia and across the nation.

Female voters are always a key demographic and will remain so in the 2014 midterm elections. Every House seat and 36 in the Senate will be on the ballots and Republicans need gain only six seats in the Senate to win the majority.

Georgia’s open Senate seat is among the country’s most fiercely competitive, with female voters playing a key role.

According to the Georgia secretary of state, far more women voted in the last two elections than men. In 2012, 2.1 million women voted compared with 1.6 million men, and in 2010, 1.4 million women voted compared with 1.1 million men.

[…]But Handel has struggled to raise money to compete with the other GOP candidates. Her campaign said Thursday it had raised $100,000 since Palin announced the endorsement last week.

Perdue, cousin of former Gov. Sonny Perdue, and Kingston have been the money leaders while Gingrey has substantial funds from his prior congressional campaigns. Broun has been drawing support from conservative organizations, but he also trails in fundraising. Both Perdue and Kingston have been airing TV ads, and Perdue appears to be gaining momentum based on early polls.

Perdue launched another TV ad Thursday, emphasizing his “outside perspective” and “over 40 years of experience in the real world.”

Republicans Art Gardner and Derrick Grayson are also running. On the Democratic side, Nunn is competing against Democrats Steen Miles, Branko “Rad” Radulovacki and Todd Anthony Robinson.

Gov. Palin campaigns for Lizbeth Benacquisto in Florida

Posted by Dr. Fay on April 4, 2014

Governor Palin campaigned for Congressional candidate Lizbeth Benacquisto at a barbecue in East Naples yesterday afternoon.  Jacob Carpenter at writes:

Sarah Palin campaigns for fellow ‘mama grizzly’ Lizbeth Benacquisto

Scott McIntyre/Staff  State Senator Lizbeth Benacquisto, left, and former Alaska governor Sarah Palin joke with guests while they serve barbecue at a private fundraiser for Benacquisto's congressional campaign in East Naples on Thursday April 3, 2014.

Calling her a “mama grizzly” who will protect Southwest Florida, Republican political power Sarah Palin backed congressional candidate Lizbeth Benacquisto on Thursday, breezing through Southwest Florida for a private fundraiser.

Palin, the former governor of Alaska, 2008 vice presidential nominee and Republican firebrand, served up barbecue and a side of support for Benacquisto, one of four GOP candidates running in the April 22 special election for a vacated U.S. House of Representatives seat. The pair were joined by about 100 people in an East Naples backyard, listening as Benacquisto’s most high-profile endorser rallied her troops.

“It’s time to get a good character in there that we can respect and that we know will do well for the future of our country,” Palin said, alluding to disgraced former congressman Trey Radel. “She’s a mama grizzly. She’s one of those who will stand up to protect the next generation.”

For Benacquisto, still serving as a Fort Myers state senator and the Senate majority leader, the appearance was a calculated move to bolster support — and fundraising totals — with less than three weeks until the primary.

She skipped a Senate vote, hopped on a charter plane and arrived at about 6 p.m. for the $500 per plate fundraiser — though not all in attendance paid the full amount, Benacquisto said. She also missed a Sanibel Island forum attended by other three Republican candidates Thursday, choosing the Palin fundraising bump over the island event.

“To have Gov. Palin come into the district and share her thoughts and inspiration on the days leading up to Election Day, to have her here on behalf of my campaign, is just overwhelming,” Benacquisto said. “We’re just thrilled she’s here.”
