Waiting for Governor Palin

Posted by Sheya on April 6, 2011

Will she or won’t she? Is she in or is she out? Day in and day out there are different articles and reports by people trying to convince us that they know the answer to this question or are in the know regarding Governor Palin’s political future. Analysts look for signals and make assumptions about what it is that Governor Palin is up to. The truth is that those who talk don’t know, and those who know don’t talk.

Most often, the conclusions are that Governor Palin will not throw her hat into the ring and that the only reason she’s allowing her name to be out there is so that she remains relevant and can make money. Recently on Hannity, Ann Coulter suggested that Newt Gingrich advised Governor Palin that the longer she keeps her name out there, the more money she would make.

The reasons offered by those who assume Governor Palin isn’t running are that “she isn’t doing anything” and that “there are no signals that she will in fact enter the race.”  These assertions however contradict the notion that Governor Palin is only dragging this thing out to remain relevant or to make money. If that were the Governor’s intention, her camp wouldn’t go out of its way to debunk every story that might suggest that she is in fact running.  On the contrary, she would do everything possible to make people believe she’s in, such as taking fake trips to Iowa, or leaking false rumors. She would do the things fake potential candidates do to remain in the news.

The mere fact that there are no leaks and that we’re not hearing much from Governor Palin suggests that she is running and is quietly organizing and putting everything in place in preparation for an announcement.

Which brings me to my next point:

Recently my neighbor knocked on my door asking me if I could do her a favor. She wanted me to run to the grocery store two blocks away and see if her daughter Emily was still there. She sent Emily over to buy some groceries, it had been almost 45 minutes, and she should have been back. My neighbor, who just had a newborn, couldn’t run over herself and was in such panic that she was about to call the police and file a missing persons report.

Of course I quickly ran over, and there was Emily calmly standing in the long line at the checkout patiently waiting her turn. I didn’t have to ask her the reason for her delay. Of the usual three checkout counters, only one was open and there were still many people in front of her with fully loaded trolleys. I stayed there with Emily until she was done and walked her home.

As we turned into our block, Emily’s mother came running over and hugged and kissed her daughter as if she met a long lost child. “Emily, I am so glad you’re okay, what happened? Where were you?” Emily of course thought her mother had totally lost it and she didn’t know what her mom was talking about. She explained how the store was overcrowded with shoppers, there was only one checkout open, and she had to wait in line. “Why didn’t you call me? I was so worried,” her mom interrupted. Emily, now totally confused, responded; “Call you, why? Nothing was out of the ordinary, I didn’t know I had to call every time there is a long line at the checkout.”

The situation can be explained in one sentence: Emily’s mom did not know what was going on and instinctively began to panic. Emily, for her part, was just doing her thing and didn’t even realize that there was a problem or that someone was worried.

We’ve all been there, whether it’s at the airport, on a plane, in a doctor’s office, or just waiting for a bus. Whatever the circumstances, the scenarios are identical. When our flight is delayed, 10 minutes can seem like an hour. When you doctor steps out to check some test results, those worrisome 5 minutes can be the longest five minutes of your life.

You board a plane, find your seat, pack your bags in the overhead compartment. You sit down, make yourself comfortable, and buckle up your seat belt expecting your flight to take off within the next 15 minutes or so. All the passengers have boarded, the doors have been closed, the cabin crew have made their final checks and you’re about to take off. Suddenly a voice comes over the public service announcement “Ladies and gentlemen, this is your captain, we’re running slightly behind schedule and should begin our departure shortly.” You look at your watch and, well, it’s only 5 minutes past the scheduled time, so you’re not too concerned.

Some time elapses, the plane still hasn’t moved, and after what appears to be an eternity since the last time you checked your watch, you have a look again and another full 5 minutes has passed.

Waiting can be a terrible thing, especially when you’re not in the know. But the waiting is only bad for you. For the captain, the doctor or the bus driver who are in the know, the time goes by much faster because they know what’s going on. For them, the situation may well be reversed, so under pressure to get the situation sorted, the hour is just not long enough.

We’re all sitting around waiting for an announcement by Governor Palin. Days seem like weeks, weeks seem like months, and months seem like years. Frustration builds up and emotions run high. Everyone is telling you that it appears that Governor Palin isn’t doing anything. All you need is a signal, “Governor can you please call us.”

But while you may not be hearing anything, Governor Palin who is in the know, is working hard to get all her ducks in a row. Time is relative. What’s a long time for you can be very short for someone else. While waiting for an announcement may seem like an eternity, just remember that it is Governor Palin who is preparing for the toughest race of a lifetime and, for her, there just doesn’t seem to be enough hours in the day.

Judge Pirro’s Disservice To Governor Palin

Posted by Sheya on March 7, 2011

On Saturday, Judge Jeanine Pirro interviewed Governor Palin. The interview covered a wide range of topics: the budget, the deficit, energy, Israel, Libya, Mexico, the Obama administration’s incompetence, terrorism, the war on terror, and unions. Basically, the Governor talked about all of the important issues facing the country and the world today.


It was a great interview for both sides. The Judge asked great questions and Governor Palin responded in kind.

That is until the judge’s urge for a soundbite led her to throw in a stupid question about the whack job Kathy Griffin.

Really Judge? With all the issues facing the country and the world, was that really necessary? I’ll forgive you for the question about the shoes – you’re a woman, you liked the shoes – but Griffin?

Ms. Pirro did Governor Palin a great disservice by asking her this question. Governor Palin had no choice but to respond. Now, out of a 15 minute policy-based interview, not a single media outlet, including Foxnews’s own Fox Nation, is covering anything other than that 44 second soundbite.  By asking that question the Judge just helped to advance the false narrative that Governor Palin never discusses issues of substance.

Of course Ms. Pirro will justify herself by saying that Governor Palin didn’t have to respond had she not wanted to. She could have easily answered “Come on Judge, we’ve just spent 15 minutes talking about far greater problems, are we really going to discuss the the casting of TV shows?

That’s what people don’t get about Governor Palin. She speaks her mind. Governor Palin doesn’t play games and doesn’t spin. So when she’s asked a question, she responds and the media know that. I’m sure Governor Palin would have loved to respond to those questions by saying:  “With all due respect, we’ve just covered many important topics; the economy, energy, national security and foreign policy. Now you’re asking me this question simply because you want a soundbite that will take away the attention of my substance. Well I’m not giving it to you, it’s about time people get to hear what I have to say and not the headline you want to push to use me to get traffic.” But dare her do that and you have these headlines Sarah Palin to Bill O’Reilly: Don’t interrupt! or Sarah Palin doesn’t take kindly to … That is why they pull those stunts.

One can easily conclude that the judge felt the interview was going really well for the Governor. She was very good at discussing a wide range of issues and Pirro realized that this may help her politically, so she decided to deliberately sabotage the interview.

The conservative blogosphere is not an innocent party either as some found it amusing to cherry pick just the Griffin part of the interview. Many in the conservative blogosphere portray themselves as supporters of Governor Palin but do they really support her? It’s pretty clear that, like many on the right, they are not interested in actually helping Governor Palin; they just want to use her as a sledgehammer and wedge to slam liberals that they dislike.

Over the weekend Governor Palin had three interviews, totalling 29 minutes of substance, covering every issue currently in the national debate. Yet, apparently no one in the mainstream or conservative media found anything other than three 30 second soundbites that were completely irrelevant to the substance of the interviews, to report on.

The same thing happened with her Long Island Association Q&A. The Governor took questions on every issue from a pro-abortion, pro-gun control Democrat for over an hour before an audience of socially liberal Democrats and Republicans in an area where the Democrat Party is strong, yet no one found anything to report on other than some made up controversy about breast milk.

If I’m wrong, can someone explain it to me why we see very little coverage of any substantive comments Governor Palin makes, but almost daily coverage of how some dumb liberal attacked her?

Sure some in the conservative blogosphere will hide under the cover of “we’re defending her”, and they will on some occasions throw a bone to keep up the appearance that they are helping her. But the facts point to them using her and it’s about time someone called them out.

Partners In Blood

Posted by Sheya on January 13, 2011

As many of our readers know, I am an observant Jew. I observe the Sabbath and all the Jewish Holidays. I went to Jewish schools and so do my kids. Not only do I live by all the rules, I am part of the Jewish culture and I even look the part.

Ever since I was two years old, I was told stories of Jewish persecution and blood libels. I was told how the Jews were accused for using the blood of Christian children to bake matzoh bread. I was told the stories of how whenever there was a murder in town the Jews were blamed for it. Whatever the scenario, the chain of events were the same. The Jews were accused of a murder, followed by calls for their deaths, followed by riots and then killings of all the Jews. Then, when the Jews spoke up and defended themselves, they were told to sit down and shut up and further killings took place for that reason alone.

After the horrific killings in Tucson this Saturday and the finger-pointing at Governor Palin begun, I was mad and I was angry. Not that I’m not used to seeing irrational  criticism thrown at Governor Palin, I’m used to seeing that by now and frankly I have come to expect it. But this time it was different; this time it felt as if all those stories I was told as a kid were coming to life. A heartless murderer shot and killed innocent victims. Governor Palin, who is hated just because she exists, was blamed, and that was followed by a flood of calls for her death on Twitter and Facebook. If this isn’t a blood libel than nothing is.

I have just spoken to many of my Jewish friends. Neither myself nor any other Jew I know is offended by Governor Palin’s comments. On the contrary, based on what we know and were taught about blood libels, this is exactly what this was: a blood libel.

The term blood libel wasn’t invented to define what happened to the Jews; it’s just that what happened to Jews were blood libels, and this term fits perfectly to what happened to Governor Palin.

The left and the media attacking Governor Palin are outraged at her for her using the term. Of course, why wouldn’t they be? The chain of events is following the direction blood libels always follow, and they are just mad that they are being called out.

Make no mistake: had Governor Palin not used the term they would have found something else to complain about. As far as they are concerned Governor Palin can do nothing right. This time they picked the wrong thing to nitpick, and the outcries will be an epic fail.

To all my Jewish counterparts in the media: Being Jewish doesn’t automatically qualify you to speak on behalf of all the Jews unless you actually observe at least part of the Torah’s Mitzvot.

I am a proud observant Jew, and I am always proud to stand with Governor Palin, but today we are also partners in blood.

Politicizing An Horrific Tragedy

Posted by Sheya on January 9, 2011

Arizona Rep. Gabrielle Giffords is in intensive care unit following surgery for a gunshot wound in the head at close range by a liberal lone heartless gunman.

While the shooter was a lone criminal, liberals are coming out of the woodworks to pin the shooting on no other than Governor Palin for targeting 20 house democrates during the 2010 mid-term elections. Daily Kos founder Markos Moulitsas Tweeted, “Mission accomplished, Sarah Palin.”  Matt Lewis notes:

If your first response to such an event is to think of Sarah Palin, something is wrong.

It is a sad state of affairs when a tragedy gets politicized, unfortunately some on the left have no shame in doing so and as a result we are left with no alternative but to correct the record.

It is ironic that it’s no other than the far left Daily Kos who are pushing this blame Palin narrative when it was just 2 days ago when the Daily Kos indirectly called for the death of congreswomen Giffords.

On January 6th the Daily Kos had an article titled My CongressWOMAN voted against Nancy Pelosi! And is now DEAD to me. The post has now been removed.

The targeting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords by the Daily Kos goes back to June 2008 when they placed a Bullseye on Rep Giffords:

In 2004 the Democrats had a “Targeting Map” of their own, as it turns out Arizona just so happens to be one of their targets.

Reports are still coming in but from information already available the shooter is a 22-year-old white male named Jared Loughner a nut who on his YouTube channel lists Mein Kampf and Communist Manifesto as his favourite books.

User @caitieparker on twitter claims to know the shooter, according to her, Loughner is a redical liberal, following are some of her latest tweets:

Unlike the Daily Kos, we are not trying to blame anyone for the shooting, it is obvious that the gunman is a crazy nut who didn’t need any encouragement to carry out this senseless and unconscionable act. Rep Giffords is Jewish and this may well turn out to be racially motivated, but people need to take a step back and stop using a tragic event to advance their political agendas. Our message to the Dialy Kos: People in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones

Governor Palin’s “America By Heart” Book Tour Schedule

Posted by Sheya on November 11, 2010

Via The Associated Press

For her next book tour, Sarah Palin will again skip some of the nation’s biggest cities.

But no traveling by bus this time. It’s airplanes all the way.

HarperCollins announced Wednesday that the former Republican vice presidential candidate and Alaska governor will be on the road from Nov. 23 to Dec. 3, with a break for Thanksgiving, to promote “American by Heart,” subtitled “Reflections on Family, Faith, and Flag.” The book, coming out Nov. 23, is her first since the million-selling memoir “Going Rogue.”

Palin, 46, will be joined by her husband, Todd, and other family members. As with “Going Rogue,” she will not make appearances in New York, Los Angeles, Seattle, San Francisco or other cities where Democrats are more in favor. She will spend little time on either coast, sticking mostly to the South, Southwest and Midwest.

The tour begins at a Barnes & Noble in Phoenix, in the home state of her 2008 running mate, Sen. John McCain. Other stops include Dillons Marketplace in Andover, Kan.; a Sam’s Club in Little Rock, Ark.; and a Costco in Brentwood, Tenn. Palin will finish at a Books-A-Million in Columbia, S.C.

Politico Reports

Sarah Palin — accompanied at times by family members — later this month will launch a nine-day, 16-stop signing tour for her new book, “America by Heart: Reflections on Family, Faith, and Flag.”

Among the destinations sure to get buzz: Des Moines and Spirit Lake, Iowa.

Palin’s strategic schedule includes a stop in Tulsa, Okla., on “Black Friday” — the day after Thanksgiving — and then four more stops during that big shopping weekend.

The tour has more of a heartland concentration than the 35-city tour for her memoir “Going Rogue” (the best-selling nonfiction book of 2009) and adds such markets as Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, South Carolina and Tennessee.

The venues include the giant book chains — Borders, Barnes & Noble and Books-a-Million. But the former Alaska governor will also sign books at all-American locations like Walmart, Sam’s Club, Costco and Kroger.

Her publisher, HarperCollins, released this description of “America by Heart”: “Framed by her strong belief in the importance of family, faith and patriotism, the book ranges widely over American history, culture and current affairs … America By Heart will include selections from classic and contemporary readings that have moved her — from the nation’s founding documents to great speeches, sermons, letters, literature and poetry, biography and even some of her favorite songs and movies.”
Here’s the list of stops:

Nov. 23: Phoenix
Nov. 26: Tulsa, Okla.
Nov. 27: Norfolk, Neb.
Nov. 27: Des Moines
Nov. 28: Andover, Kan.
Nov. 28: Dallas
Nov. 29: Houston
Nov. 29: New Orleans
Nov. 30: Baton Rouge, La.
Nov. 30: Little Rock, Ark.
Dec. 1: Brentwood, Tenn.
Dec. 1: Lexington, Ky.
Dec. 2: Spirit Lake, Iowa
Dec. 2. Carmel, Ind.
Dec. 3: Cincinnati
Dec. 3: Columbia, S.C.

Note: This has not yet been confirmed by the Governor

The Palin Effect

Posted by Sheya on October 20, 2010

Last week we posted Matthew Continetti’s op-ed titled “Five Myths About Sarah Palin. If you haven’t read it yet, it’s worth your time. You may not agree with everything he writes but In general he busts all those myths. Mr Continetti was on Fox & Friends today to discuss his piece:

I have another myth I want to debunk.

Most Americans think Palin is unqualified to be President.

Not True! Yes, we’ve seen the polls, read the reports, and heard the analysis. First, most people don’t go behind the numbers to tell you why the numbers are what they are. I’ve already written about it in The Polarization of Sarah Palin. That too is a good read.
There is another thing going on here: The Palin Effect. The Palin effect is the reverse of the Bradley Effect. For those who are unaware of the Bradley Effect, this is how Wikipedia summarizes it:

The Bradley effect, less commonly called the Wilder effect is a theory proposed to explain observed discrepancies between voter opinion polls and election outcomes in some US government elections where a white candidate and a non-white candidate run against each other Instead of ascribing the results to flawed methodology on the part of the pollster, the theory proposes that some voters tend to tell pollsters that they are undecided or likely to vote for a black candidate, and yet, on election day, vote for the white opponent. It was named after Los Angeles Mayor Tom Bradley, an African-American who lost the 1982 California governor’s race despite being ahead in voter polls going into the elections.

Let’s take that paragraph and adapt it to The Palin Effect:

The Palin Effect, is a theory proposed to explain observed discrepancies between voter opinion polls and election outcomes in some US government elections. Where some voters, for fear of being considered stupid or uneducated, or a belief that answering in the negative makes them look cool, tend to tell pollsters that they have an unfavourable opinion, yet privately they have a favourable opinion of the candidate. The Palin Effect also applies where voters will tell a pollster that the candidate in question is unqualified are that they are undecided or likely not to vote for them and yet, on Election Day, they do. It was named after 2008 Republican Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin, the Former Alaska Governor who won the 2012 US presidential election despite being behind in all the polls for two years prior.

In my quest to get a hold of new and older videos for this site, I get in touch with many network producers, journalists and reporters. In most cases when I explain my request, they will go out of their way to try to help me. “I Love Governor Palin” or “She’s an amazing Women” and “I truly admire her” are the most common terms I hear, usually followed by “but don’t tell anyone I could lose my job” or “My friends would never forgive me if they knew that”.

The following story happened to me a couple of weeks ago:

I walked into a camera store, standing behind the counter was a guy reading the paper, he was reading an article about Governor Palin. Unable to resist the temptation I said “Ah, Governor Palin”. The guy looked up at me and said “yeh, she’s stupid”. I kind of expected that, but I do like a challenge so I asked “why is she stupid?” the conversation proceeded as follows:

Clerk: Well, she quit
Me: No she didn’t, she resigned
Clerk: Same thing
Me: No, Quitting a job is when you just give up and don’t want to do it anymore. Resigning is where one would have loved to continue doing their job but circumstances arise where this is no longer possible and for the best interest of the organization the person decides it’s best to leave.
Clerk: But she’s stupid
Me: Why, can you name one thing that makes her stupid?
Clerk: Wait, do you SUPPORT Sarah Palin?
Me: Of course I do, history will judge her as one of the best US Presidents
Clerk: I think so too.
Me: Excuse me?
Clerk: Yeah, I love her, she’s amazing, I really hope she runs.
Me: I’m not sure I follow
Clerk: Look, I wasn’t sure whether you support her or not, I didn’t want to come out of the closet until I was sure.
Me: Why not, what are you afraid of?
Clerk: Unfortunately if you support Governor Palin, you’re labeled as stupid or uneducated or just a racist. It’s a complicated environment when it comes to Governor Palin
Me: I understand what you are saying, the irony is that if all those who actually support her would “come out of the closest” and say so, it won’t be us that are considered stupid.
Clerk: How about you? Are you open about it?
Me: Of course, I wear it on my sleeve. I would walk down Times Square and shout loudly “I support Sarah Palin”. And you know what; I would bet that within minutes I’d have the square filled with 1000’s of people saying the same thing.

I ended up spending an hour chatting with the guy, pointing him in the right direction on how to respond to the Palin critique. We are now good friends and I get 10% discount on my camera equipment.

The next time you see a poll that tells you that the majority of Americans believe Governor Palin is unqualified to be president, just put the paper down and say out loud “The Palin Effect”.

Governor Palin Fires Up Missoula Crowd

Posted by Sheya on September 12, 2010

The Missoulian reports:

Praising God and America, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin brought an adoring crowd to its feet with her message of faith, family and the power of prayer during a Sunday fundraising event to support a Christ-centered Missoula women’s residential center.

“God and family and country – take a stand in that order and things fall into place,” Palin told a sold-out crowd of 1,600 at the Hilton Garden Inn during her 40-minute talk at the “Raise the Roof” capital campaign for Teen Challenge.

“Taking a stand for God is not always easy … but it is always right and worthwhile,” Palin said.

God and prayer help people find their true calling and innate talents, she said, and in God’s “cosmic calculus” for each of us he provides the lessons we each must learn in our individual journeys.

Teen Challenge, she said, is an example of God’s work in action. Each day, the national program helps alcoholics become sober, drug addicts come clean and helps scared unwed teen mothers turn that hardship into life’s great blessing.

There are no perfect families, Palin said – and family isn’t just who you are born into, but who you choose to be around.

In the inevitable troubled times, it is faith in God – and prayer – that see people through.


To the roar of her appreciative crowd, Palin fired off several one-liners over the course of her talk.

“Why is it called the far right when it is just common sense?” she asked. “The government that governs least governs best.”

Robust applause erupted when Palin boldly laid out her no-holds-barred opinion about the way the country is currently being governed.

“The things they are doing in Washington, D.C., are absolutely whacked,” she said. “They are upside-down.”

When the crowd quieted, Palin continued with her thoughts on the current state of affairs in America and on leadership.

Not wanting to get “too political,” Palin shared, but touched lightly on her beliefs.

“I love my country and I love our system, but government can’t fix the problems – government is the problem,” she said. “Government can’t dry a tear or lend a shoulder or put back together a family, or country or state.”

The missoulian tweeted

Sarah Palin signs a T-shirt for Teen Challenge, which auctions it off for $3,500. Palin says she’ll add another $3,500 of her own.

Governor Palin’s Robocall for Karen Handel

Posted by Sheya on July 15, 2010

Governor Palin recorded a Robocall for Karen Handel:


Hi, This is Governor Sarah Palin and I am calling you today to ask you to support my friend Karen Handel in the Republican primary for Governor this Tuesday.

The primary is really close. So Karen’s opponents are kind of saying those kind of crazy things about her. Please just get the truth for yourself. Karen is a pro-life, pro-family constitutionalist, a Republican who’s going to fight for what is right.”

Because she is taking on the status quo, well, Karen’s opponents aren’t always telling the truth about her views on those issues that we hold dear.

Please join me, Sarah palin, in support of Karen Handel this Tuesday vote Karen Handel in the Republican primary for Governor.

Thank You

Another Liberal Opens His Mouth and Goes Off in The Wind

Posted by Sheya on June 21, 2010

Here we go again. Some liberal goes on television, doesn’t bother doing even minimal homework, starts up with the usual drivel, complains when he’s interrupted, and doesn’t have the courtesy to admit a mistake. Let’s go to the video first shall we.


Mr Klink begins with his so called admiration for the Governor. He says she’s a “nice lady” and he even “loves her positions”. Then he goes on to say she’s wrong. Imagine my confusion. Which is it…does he like her positions or doesn’t he? Next:

I love the fact that, you know, she is the one who talked about death panels in the health care bill when they didn’t exist.

Well, Mr Klink seems to have missed the fact that Peter Orszag, Director of Obama’s Office of Management and Budget (OMB), has already vindicated Governor Palin on the issue of Death Panels.

She’s the one who could see Russia from her back yard

The left have been pushing this ludicrous narrative about the Governor so much that they now either actually believe it or they are just plain stupid (I opt for the latter). When Ms Bream was courteous enough to correct him, pointing out that Tina Fey said this in a SNL comedy skit, not Governor Palin, he has the stupidity to say “yes she did”.

I like the fact that she quit her first elected position half way through to go make 12 million dollars

Mr Klink talks about “facts”, here’s a fact for you: Governor Palin served two terms (1992- 1996) as a member of the Wasilla, Alaska City Council. She then served two full terms (1996-2002) as mayor of Wasilla. Her position as governor wasn’t exactly her first elected position, it was her fifth elected position. Trust the left to make things up as they go along.

As Governor Palin’s influence is taking shape and her endorsements are having a real impact, the “quitter” meme is being dug up again, both from the left and the right. For the benefit of those who didn’t understand it the other gazillion times this has been addressed, I’ll try it again, in plain English so even a 6 year old can understand it.

When Governor Palin returned to Alaska after the 2008 election, the left unanimously decided that this women must be taken out, they unleashed a herd of wolfs who began throwing at her one frivolous ethic complaint after another (24 to date, all of which have been dismissed). Their plan was to personally bankrupt her. Besides personally costing the Governor over a half a million dollars, it ended up costing the state over $2 million in money and thousands of hours in state time. Fighting off those complaints compromised her position as governor and effectively rendered her position useless; the mere fact that she was Governor brought Alaska’s state government to a standstill.

When the legislature refused to pass a simple bill that would have fixed the abuse of the ethics complaint process, Governor Palin knew that her last year and a half in office would be nothing more than a complete waste of time and money. She wanted better for Alaska than that.

Governor Palin had two choices, either hang on, waste even more state time and money, taking down the state with her, or, she could uphold her oath to protect and defend Alaska, remove the obstacle that was holding up the development of the state, and resign. She would pass the baton to her lieutenant Governor who would take over and put the state back on track, essentially following her policies. Governor Palin opted to do the right thing; she got out of the way and allowed the state to progress without her being a distraction. Ever since Governor Parnell took over the state has been moving forward, and I’m guessing that the majority of Americans today couldn’t name the Alaska Governor. I’m also guessing Alaskans are happier that way.

If Governor Palin hadn’t resigned, the ethic complaints would have continued, hundreds of thousands of hours would have continued to be wasted, and the state would have continued wasting millions of dollars. There would have been an outcry from the left and the right calling for her to do the right thing and resign. “How can Governor Palin stand around and see that happen”, “she needs to do the right thing and resign for the good of the state”, “Governor Palin is only thinking about herself, all she wants is to further her national ambitions” Can anyone truly argue that this wouldn’t have been the case?

What bothers them is that she did it but on her own terms. Now that she’s making money, the left just can’t handle it. The plan was to destroy her, render her absolutely ineffective, demand her resignation and take her down. But the plan backfired. She resigned, is serving her country, and her state better elsewhere. She’s doing exactly what the anklebiters feared: she broke free of their chains so she could influence the national scene. They accomplished the opposite of their goal, and they made her rich in the process. She’s keeping her promise to campaign for candidates who share her values and they are wining. Thanks, anklebiters.

When Ben Ferguson challenges him by pointing out that Obama quit his senate seat to run for president, Mr Klink responds by saying that Obama stayed in elected office. Apparently Obama’s self-aggrandizement is more noble in Mr. Klink’s mind than Governor Palin’s self-less move to allow her state to progress. Governor Palin has always said she doesn’t need a title to make a difference. In the year since Governor Palin resigned she has affected more change out of office and without accepting a paycheck from the taxpayer, than the community organizer has achieved in office – other than bankrupting the nation and speeding America toward a financial cliff.

Let’s move on:

Klink argues that it’s a legitimate question to ask whether the candidates Governor Palin has endorsed will follow her lead and also “quit” half way through their term.

What Klink is suggesting is that every time a candidate receives an endorsement it is legitimate to ask: Will the candidate feel obligated to do everything the endorser ever did or something. Mitt Romney endorsed Nikki Haley. Does that mean Nikki Haley will try to pass a version of RomneyCare in South Carolina? You can see what a non-sequiter this argument is. But if Klink thinks otherwise, I have some “legitimate” questions of my own regarding those candidates President Obama endorses and campaigns for:

Will they bankrupt their states?

Will they also ignore the will of the people and push through bills over half their constituents are against?

Will they engage in Chicago-style backroom deals?

Will they bow to foreign leaders?

Will they go around apologizing for America?

Will they go golfing and have parties every time there is a national crisis?

Whose A** do they plan to kick?

How many terrorist friends do they have?

How much community organizing have they done?

Do they have zero executive experience?

Do they have no history of accomplishing anything?

Will they think the best way to clean up an oil spill is to build more windmills?

Mr Klink also asks how Drill baby Drill is working out. Good question, how IS IT working out for you? If the Obama administration would just listen to Governor Palin and “drill baby drill on land (ANWR, for example) and in shallow waters, we may not have had the problem we have now. Governor Palin still advocates drilling here and now, but she also advocates doing it ethically and responsibly.

Klink does make one good point though, when people start listening to Sarah Palin’s OWN words and to her OWN positions – rather than listening to what people like Klink try to convince us to believe what they think she said or believes – and when people really look to her to solve problems, they will find out that there is real hope for America. In the meantime you can rest assured that whenever a liberal like Klink opens his mouth, the BS will pile up so fast we’ll need wings to stay above it.

Plug the BP Oil Spill with President Obama

Posted by Sheya on June 7, 2010

We have been presented with the opportunity to not only plug the worst oil spill in U.S. history, but also the opportunity to finally find a purpose for [President Obama].

That’s an edited version of a paragraph Time Magazine extracted from a new facebook group that suggests the Gulf oil leak ought to be plugged with none other than Governor Palin.

Usually I would ignore those “harebrained schemes” as Time appropriately brands it, but seeing that a prominent national magazine like Time actually decided to report on it, a thought crossed my mind.

Had a pro-Palin group created the same “harebrained scheme” suggesting we take the president, who unlike Governor Palin is actually responsible to make sure we plug the hole, drop him one mile down the ocean and plug the hole with him, all hell would have broken loose. The LSM, including Time, would have gone totally berserk claiming that we were inciting violence and hatred.

Of course, as civilised citizens, as much as we disagree with the President, we would never suggest anything that would even remotely cause the president personal harm. All we want is for the president to do the job he was elected to do. But of course when it comes to attacking Governor Palin nothing is off limits. I look forward to Time reporting on this headline.

Update: Karen Allen has more on this here
