Again, Sarah Palin’s political wisdom serves her well

Posted by joshpainter on June 19, 2011

Gov. Palin’s political wisdom, as it has done so many times in the past, served her well this weekend. By choosing not to attend the Republican Leadership Conference in New Orleans she avoided the embarrassment of being associated with the farce the event turned out to be.

Most any political event which has a straw poll and sells credentials for attendees risks having the poll results skewed in favor of the highest bidder. As he has a history of doing at these dog and pony shows, Congressman Ron Paul purchased, according to the buzz going around the convention, a block of 600 tickets to the event for his faithful and enthusiastic followers, and as if by coincidence, received 612 votes to win the RLC straw poll going away. The implication is that in addition to the 600 “Ronulans” Rep. Paul had bused in to News Orleans, there were a dozen people at the conference who voted for him. Straw poll runner up Amb. Jon Huntsman evidently couldn’t fly in 600 supporters to flood the zone, but the former Obama employee still managed to get 382 Huntsmaniste to the Crescent City to vote for him.

As easily manipulated as these straw polls are, conservative media nevertheless give them plenty of coverage, without any mention of how the straw polls are almost always rigged. That speaks to the power of sponsorship and advertising. Though not as corrupt as their lamestream media counterparts, such conservative media stalwarts as The American Spectator, by reporting the flawed poll results as news, demonstrated that you can’t believe everything you read in the conservative media. Shame on you, James Antle. Even Investors Business Daily got caught with its integrity down by simply reprinting a press release from Ron Paul’s Presidential Campaign instead of fairly reporting on the straw poll. That’s hardly what we would call “news and analysis,” IBD, as it fails to satisfy the definition of either.

If the straw poll wasn’t enough to make a bad joke out of RLC, the appearance of Reggie Brown, a “comedian” and Obama impersonator, moved it into the Total Farce category. After suffering though an eighteen minute salvo of mostly racial jokes with a few shots at gays thrown in for bad measure, RLC President and CEO Charlie Davis finally decided that he had just about heard enough and pulled the plug on the over-the-top comic. Brown’s rude routine was rudely interrupted and mercifully truncated when a man went to the podium, told the comedian to leave and escorted him off the stage. Though NewsBuster Noel Sheppard questions the real reason why Brown was yanked, in our view that is a matter which is beside the point.

The point is that before Brown was sent packing, the comic had provided the left with a veritable armory full of ammunition to shoot back at conservatives. The Atlantic, Politico and the usual retinue of leftist blogs seized on Brown’s bad jokes as further “evidence” that the right is raaaacist, just like the left has been claiming since day one. The Republican Party has earned its appellation of “The Stupid Party” for its tendency to not always act in its own best interests, and sadly, its kissing kicking cousin, the conservative establishment, is quickly becoming “The Stupid Movement.” Most all of us are familiar with Ronald Regan’s Eleventh Commandment, “Thou shalt not speak ill of another Republican.” If Reagan would have had a Twelfth Commandment, we like to think it would be something to the effect of, “Thou shalt not give the left political ammunition to use against conservatives or conservatism.”

Which brings us back to Sarah Palin. Every time a “conservative” mocks or criticizes the governor, the left jumps on the opportunity just handed them to further demean her. “See,” they breathlessly exclaim, “even conservatives don’t take her seriously!” Never mind that serial centrist Palin-bashers such as David Frum, Peggy Noonan and the rest of their ilk are no more “conservative” than Zell Miller is a “progressive,” ammo is ammo, and it rips the reputation of conservatives and tears the fabric of their ideas, no matter where it comes from. Anyone right of dead center, even if just slightly so, knows full well in advance of making disparaging remarks about Sarah Palin that by doing so they are giving aid and comfort to the left. We submit that a true conservative, if he or she differs with another conservative on issues and ideas, should be free to argue the points. But attacks by those on the right against the character, intellect, physical appearance, or family of a good Reagan conservative should be considered a treasonous act by all conservatives of conscience, and they should publicly shun those who are guilty of engaging in such behavior. In the end, these attacks do as much to damage the cause of conservatism as they do to politically wound any individual conservative.

Getting back to New Orleans, Sarah Palin has once again offered convincing evidence that not only are her political instincts right as rain, the decision making process she employed to evaluate what she instinctively knew to be likely — an intellectual exercise — proved to be beyond reproach. She knew ahead of this event that the straw poll would be stacked against her and rightly judged that there was no win for her in lending her presence to this sham of a conference. Just like CPAC, the corruption spreading through the conservative establishment is tainting all its public events. Sarah knows that she and the grassroots conservative movement are better served by her participation in Tea Party rallies and other events organized by those who put plenty of distance between themselves and the (once upon a time) conservative establishment. She’s smarter than your average grizzly bear.

Sarah Palin To Headline 2010 International Bowling Expo

Posted by Gary P Jackson on December 2, 2009

Here’s a little tidbit for you. One thing we know for sure, Sarah Palin is probably a lot better bowler than you know who!

Via the BPAA:

Sarah Palin Strikes New Ground as Keynote Speaker at International Bowl Expo 2010

Bowling Proprietors’ Association of America (BPAA) Welcomes Palin as Featured Guest at Bowling Industry’s Premier International Convention

ARLINGTON, TX–(Marketwire – December 2, 2009) – The Bowling Proprietors’ Association of America (BPAA), the bowling industry’s leading trade association, announced today that the bowling industry rolled a strike, securing Sarah Palin as the keynote speaker at this summer’s International Bowl Expo 2010.

“Sarah Palin is a great friend to the bowling industry and we’re so proud and honored to welcome her as our keynote speaker at International Bowl Expo 2010,” said Steven Johnson, executive director of the BPAA. “Regardless of your political affiliation, Ms. Palin is a force in American politics and culture. Her presence underscores the impact and importance of bowling, one of our country’s leading national pastimes and a growing $10 billion industry.”

The International Bowl Expo 2010 is to be held from June 27 to July 1 at the Las Vegas Hilton and Las Vegas Convention Center. Ms. Palin’s keynote speech is to take place during the general session on the morning of June 30 at the Las Vegas Hilton.

About Sarah Palin

Sarah Palin first made history on December 4, 2006 when she was sworn in as the first female governor of Alaska. In August 2008, Senator John McCain tapped Palin to serve as his vice-presidential running mate in his presidential campaign, making her the first woman to run on the Republican Party’s presidential ticket.

In Alaska, her top priorities included fiscal restraint, limiting the size of government, resource development, education, equitable oil valuation as well as transportation and infrastructure development. Palin fought for ethics reform and transparency in government.

Palin has a long record of achievement and experience in public office. Prior to her election as Governor, Palin served two terms on the Wasilla City Council and two terms as the mayor of Wasilla. During her tenure, she reduced property tax levels while increasing services and made Wasilla a business-friendly environment, drawing in new industry.

Under her leadership as Governor, Alaska invested $5 billion in state savings, overhauled education funding and protected Alaska’s natural resources. She created Alaska’s Petroleum Systems Integrity Office to provide oversight and maintenance of oil and gas equipment, facilities and infrastructure and the Climate Change Subcabinet to prepare a climate change strategy for Alaska.

During Governor Palin’s first year in office, three of her administration’s major proposed pieces of legislation passed included an overhaul of the state’s ethics laws, a competitive process to construct a natural gas pipeline and a restructuring of Alaska’s oil valuation formula.

Palin is past chair of the Interstate Oil and Gas Compact Commission, a multistate government agency that promotes the conservation and efficient recovery of domestic oil and natural gas resources while protecting health, safety and the environment. She also served as chair of the National Governors Association (NGA) Natural Resources Committee, which was charged with pursuing legislation to ensure state needs are considered as federal policy is formulated in the areas of agriculture, energy, environmental protection and natural resource management.

Sarah Heath Palin arrived in Alaska with her family in 1964, when her parents came to teach school in Skagway. She received a Bachelor of Science Degree in Communications-Journalism from the University of Idaho in 1987.

She is married to Todd Palin, who is a lifelong Alaskan, worked as a production operator on the North Slope and is a four-time champion of the Iron Dog, the world’s longest snow machine race. They have five children. She is the author of “Going Rogue: An American Life,” which was released in November 2009.

About BPAA

Headquartered in Arlington, Texas, the 77-year-old Bowling Proprietors’ Association of America is a trade association representing the business interests of bowling center owners worldwide. BPAA’s mission is to enhance the profitability of its member bowling centers.

As a former Governor, and a small business owner, Sarah is obviously a great choice to headline this event. Bowling is a very popular sport worldwide and Sarah’s vast business experience as well as her love for all sports should be a great fit with this group.

Sarah Palin Event Calendars

Posted by Sarah Palin Web Brigade on November 12, 2009

As information has become available about Governor Sarah Palin’s book tour and upcoming speaking engagements, several blogs have posted unofficial calendars of these events.

On November 4, Josh Painter posted SARAH PALIN GOING ROGUE BOOK TOUR SCHEDULE on Texas4Palin. This book tour calendar contains links to his sources of information and is being updated as more information becomes available.

On November 9, Sarah Palin – Our New Cornerstone  posted GOING ROGUE ON TOUR, which is a book tour calendar that includes the addresses of the book tour stops. This calendar is also being updated as additional information becomes available.

In a collaborative effort between Governor Sarah Palin’s Accomplishments , The Palination Texas4PalinThe Book of Sarah Sarah’s Web Brigade , and Sarah Palin Information Blog, a Google calendar of book tour events and speaking engagements was launched on November 8. This calendar, entitled GOVERNOR PALIN’S UN-OFFICIAL EVENTS CALENDAR, is being updated continuously as additional information becomes available.

Upinak, editor and publisher of The Palination, had the original idea for a calendar of Governor Palin’s events. Using information from collaborating blogs, Ron Devito developed the calendar on Google and launched it first from a blog on Governor Sarah Palin’s Accomplishments. Copies of the calendar are also embedded on the Texas4Palin blog and the Book of Sarah blog. Josh Painter is making a major contribution toward updating the calendar.

The calendar contains this disclaimer:

The blog sites and the calendar are not endorsed, authorized or operated by Governor Palin, her staff, or any other candidate or committee. This calendar is not an official schedule of Governor Palin’s events. Our confirmations are done on a best-effort basis.

Links to Governor Palin’s Un-Official Events Calendar can be found in the sidebars of participating blogs. There is also a SARAH PALIN EVENTS CALENDARS page on the Sarah Palin Information Blog, which contains links to all the calendars listed above as well as links to official information released by Governor Sarah Palin and/or her representatives. As of now, the official information is limited to Governor Palin’s Facebook posts, GOING ROGUE BOOK TOUR DATES THROUGH THANKSGIVING and OPRAH ON NOVEMBER 16TH.
