Analysis: Gov. Palin Growing 10X Faster Than Rivals on Social Media

Posted by joshpainter on May 2, 2011

by Josh Painter
*
Mark Malseed and Alex Salta at OhMyGov! want to know, “Can anyone or anything stop the social media juggernaut that is Sarah Palin?”

An analysis by OhMyGov of social media activity during the early stages of the 2012 campaign reveals that Palin can do no wrong when it comes to Facebook and Twitter. Palin’s social media fan growth so far in 2011 outshines that of any other GOP contender, declared or rumored, in many cases by a factor of 10. And she doesn’t need to be part of the day’s big story to experience continued rapid growth.

The former Alaska governor has gained momentum in a number of unexpected situations. Palin attracted more news coverage than both Mitt Romney and Tim Pawlenty in the days following their announcements of presidential exploratory committees, as OhMyGov reported yesterday, even as her own presidential intentions remain unclear. Palin also drew more new social media followers than Rep. Gabrielle Giffords in the aftermath of the assassination attempt in Tucson that left Giffords critically wounded. And Palin saw her biggest spike in new Facebook fans — or “Likes” of her page — around the time of President Obama’s State of the Union speech, which she provocatively criticized as being full of “WTF moments.”

Anytime Palin becomes part of a news story, whether deliberately or unwittingly, our analysis shows, she benefits handsomely on social media. With a commanding advantage in Facebook fans over all her potential GOP primary opponents — and a strong showing on Twitter as well — Palin wields a lot of influence in the campaign whether she enters the race or not.

[…]

After keeping a respectful silence in the first days following the Tucson attacks, Palin made her first public statement via a video message released on January 12, resulting in a slew of traditional media coverage and social media activity.

In the 24 hours after accusing the mainstream media of “blood libel” in her video statement, Palin picked up another 3,021 Twitter followers and a staggering 15,068 new Facebook fans. Within a week of her remarks Palin netted roughly 9,000 new Twitter followers, proving once again that in politics there is no such thing as bad publicity.

[More]

Gov. Palin’s social media presence is remarkably strong, the authors note, pointing out that the 150,000 Facebook fans Gov. Palin picked up during just the weeks of the State of the Union and her India trip are more than most politicians, government agencies and many in the GOP presidential field can claim in total fans.

Sarah Palin: The Truth Behind the White House’s Budget Spin

Posted by joshpainter on February 14, 2011

Gov. Palin returned to Facebook after a two-week hiatus Monday with a critique of the Obama Administration’s proposed budget, which will double the national debt over the next decade :

The Truth Behind the White House’s Budget Spin

Today the White House finally produced its proposal for the 2012 budget. Beware of the left’s attempt to sell this as “getting tough on the deficit,” because as an analysis from Americans for Tax Reform shows, the White House’s plans are more about raising taxes and growing more government than reducing budget shortfalls.

The fine print reveals a White House proposal to increase taxes by at least $1.5 trillion over the next decade. If you want to know how minuscule their proposed $775 million-a-year budget “cuts” really are, please look at this chart. The proposed cuts are so insignificant – less than 1/10 of 1% of this year’s $1.65 trillion budget deficit – that they are essentially invisible on the pie chart. That speaks volumes about today’s budget.

Sarah Palin Flashback: ‘We know violence isn’t the answer’

Posted by joshpainter on January 11, 2011

A reminder at Big Government that this is not the first time the Democrat/Media Complex has shamelessly tried to use Sarah Palin’s “Take Back The 20” map to demonize her. Just three days after the map was posted on her Facebook page, campaigning for John McCain (ironically in Arizona), the left’s demonization of her had reached a fever pitch. Gov. Palin made it crystal clear in her speech that day that she and other conservatives were not inciting violence, but intended to use their votes to send a message to the Democrats that the public did not want any part of the unpopular ObamaCare measure that they had rammed through Congress:

Gov. Palin: “Hearing the news reports lately, this kinda ginned up controversy about us common sense conservatives ‘inciting violence’ because we happen to oppose some of the things in the Obama administration. 

Man in Audience: “We do it with our vote!”

Gov. Palin: “Amen, brother! That’s what you do it with, with your vote! You got it right. We know violence isn’t the answer. When we take up our arms, we’re talking about our vote. We’re talking about being involved in a contested primary like this, and picking the right candidate…”

“But this B.S. coming from the lamestream media lately about this, about us inciting violence. Don’t let the conversation be diverted. Don’t’ let a distraction like that get you off track. Keep fighting hard for these candidates who are all about the common sense conservative solutions that we need.”

Top ten Sarah Palin Facebook notes

Posted by loricalabrese on August 2, 2010

Sarah Palin reached a milestone last Thursday when her Facebook page surpassed two million followers. Although many politicians are becoming more web savvy, Palin has cornered the market, leveraging her brand and voicing her opinion through Facebook. Whenever a Facebook post by Palin appears, it’s certain to receive national media attention, shake up a political race, draw thousands of comments and spark criticism.

To celebrate Palin’s milestone, let’s take a look back at some of the former Governor of Alaska’s most memorable and controversial Facebook notes:

10. Israeli Flotilla: Don’t Take Mainstream Media Coverage at Face Value
Via Facebook, Palin weighed in on the Israeli Flotilla incident and slammed lamestream media for its coverage. Palin, not afraid to speak of the event, cut to the chase and described what the so-called Gaza Flotilla was really about. . .

Palin said, “As far too many in the media, and in various governments, rush to condemn Israel, we must put the recent events off Israel’s coast into the right perspective. This “relief” convoy was not about humanitarian aid, as the liberal mainstream media keeps reporting. The whole operation was designed to provoke Israel, not to provide supplies to Palestinians held hostage by Hamas terrorists in Gaza. Anyone who sees the video of Israeli commandos being attacked as they land on that ship knows the people aboard were vicious thugs, not “peace activists.” The media insults our intelligence with their outright mischaracterization of who these enemies are.”

9.  Extreme Enviros: Drill, Baby, Drill in ANWR–Now Do You Get It?
Sarah Palin took to the social network to make the case that it’s time to drill in the Alaska National Wildlife Reserve and that environmentalists who oppose offshore or onshore drilling are locking up safer drilling areas. This was just one of several comments about the oil spill Palin made that caused quite a stir.

Palin said, “Radical environmentalists: you are damaging the planet with your efforts to lock up safer drilling areas. There’s nothing clean and green about your misguided, nonsensical radicalism, and Americans are on to you as we question your true motives.”

8. Sarah Palin: Mr. President, do your job. Secure our border
Palin appealed to the American spirit of unity in asking for national support for Arizona as it looks to secure its southern border with Mexico, something she believes the federal government — led by President Barack Obama — has failed to do.

Palin said, “Erasing U.S. borders will destroy our country as we become less safe – and this national security issue is what Arizona and other border states are addressing with reinforcement of federal immigration laws. They have to do it because the feds aren’t doing it.”

7. Less Talkin’, More Kickin’
Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin said President Barack Obama’s acknowledgment that he hasn’t directly spoken to BP’s chief executive shows it “bodes well to have some sort of executive experience before occupying the Oval Office.”

Palin went on to outline her experience and she urged Obama to contact experts, including those in Alaska, who have held oil companies accountable.

“Give them a call,” she wrote. “Or, what the heck, give me a call.”

6. Mr. President: Boycott Copenhagen: Investigate your Climate Change ‘Experts’
Sarah Palin said President Barack Obama should reverse plans to attend the Copenhagen climate summit in light of hacked e-mails among climate scientists recently made public.

Palin attacked what she called “junk science and doomsday scare tactics pushed by an environmental priesthood that capitalizes on the public’s worry and makes them feel that owning an SUV is a ‘sin’ against the planet.”

This post sparked criticism from Arnold Schwarzenegger and Al Gore who labeled her call for a boycott, “Nonsense talk.”

5.  An Intolerable Mistake on Hallowed Ground
Sarah Palin plunged into the raging debate over a proposed Islamic community center and mosque two blocks from Ground Zero in lower Manhattan,

Palin said, “Many Americans, myself included, feel it would be an intolerable and tragic mistake to allow such a project sponsored by such an individual to go forward on such hallowed ground. This is nothing close to “religious intolerance,” it’s just common decency.”

The controversial post made national news, sparked debate with Mayor Bloomberg, and made news days later when it disappeared off Facebook, who apologized for the mistake. That shouldn’t have happened, Facebook officials said, giving this explanation: “The note in question did not violate our content standards but was removed by an automated system. We’re always working to improve our processes and we apologize for any inconvenience this caused.”

4. Are You Capable of Decency, Rahm Emanuel?
Sarah Palin launched an unusual, personal attack on the chief of staff, Rahm Emanuel, in response to a report that he’d dismissed progressives’ attempts to pressure Senate centrists as “retarded.”

Palin said, “This isn’t about politics; it’s about decency. I am not speaking as a political figure but as a parent and as an everyday American wanting my child to grow up in a country free from mindless prejudice and discrimination, free from gratuitous insults of people who are ostensibly smart enough to know better… Have you no sense of decency, sir? Mr. President, you can do better, and our country deserves better.”

3. Don’t Get Demoralized! Get Organized! Take Back the 20
The former Alaska governor rallied the base on her Facebook page in a pitch to raise money to oust Democrats from 20 House seats across the nation. Sarah Palin posted a map, showing cross hairs over the districts of Democrats who voted for health care reform in districts that Republicans carried.

“With the President signing this unwanted and ‘transformative’ government takeover of our health care system with promises impossible to keep, let’s not get discouraged,” she wrote. “Don’t get demoralized,” her statement said. “Get organized!”

Amidst the heightened tensions and threats of security against members of Congress that followed the passing of health care, Palin’s post to take back the 20 had some pundits targeting Sarah Palin as an example of irresponsible fan flaming.

2. Just When Ya’ Think It Can’t Get Any More “Interesting”–Welcome, Neighbor
Many journalists choose to cover the ever-evolving celebrity of Sarah Palin, but only one man — author Joe McGinniss — has gone so far as to actually rent the house next door to the Palin’s residence in Wasilla, Alaska. But leave it to Palin to take to her Facebook page and publicly welcome her new neighbor.

“We’re sure to have a doozey to look forward to with this treasure he’s penning. Wonder what kind of material he’ll gather while overlooking Piper’s bedroom, my little garden, and the family’s swimming hole?”

1. Statement on the Current Health Care Debate
Sarah Palin unleashed an attack on the Obama admnistration’s health care plan, calling it “downright evil.”

Palin said, “The America I know and love is not one in which my parents or my baby with Down Syndrome will have to stand in front of Obama’s “death panel” so his bureaucrats can decide, based on a subjective judgment of their “level of productivity in society,” whether they are worthy of health care. Such a system is downright evil.”

Sarah Palin Endorses “Straight Shooter” Rita Meyer for Governor of Wyoming

Posted by Dr. Fay on July 30, 2010

Complete transcript of Governor Palin’s Facebook Note:

Rita Meyer for Wyoming

Today at 12:40am

I am proud to endorse a straight shooter for Governor of Wyoming. Rita Meyer is ready to put her years of valuable public service to good use in the state’s beautiful capitol.

Before serving Wyoming with distinction as State Auditor, Rita served our nation as a combat veteran of both Desert Storm and Operation Enduring Freedom who achieved the rank of Colonel during her 23 years of service in the Wyoming Air National Guard.

Wyoming is a beautiful, resource-rich, independent state that is ready for Rita. She may not have millions of dollars to campaign with, but she has enough volunteer human resources and is running her campaign the old fashion way – grassroots and gritty! Voters know that Rita has a unique blend of steel magnolia and mama grizzly. Her true grit has not escaped the eye of other Americans who know that at every level of political office we all benefit with commonsense constitutional conservatives in service.

Please join me in supporting Rita by visiting her website at www.ritameyer.com and following her on Facebook and Twitter.

Sarah Palin: Gomez and Grimm for the Empire State

Posted by Dr. Fay on July 28, 2010

___________________________________

Complete Transcript of Governor Palin’s Facebook Note:

Gomez and Grimm for the Empire State

Wednesday, July 28, 2010

I’m happy to endorse two more Commonsense Conservatives running for Congress from the great state of New York.

John Gomez, a native Long Islander, is running in New York’s 2nd Congressional District. As a successful business owner, John understands how to incentivize job creation to get our economy moving again. He’s dedicated to reining in the reckless spending in DC and returning us to our core principles of limited government and fiscal responsibility. Please join me in supporting John by visiting his website at www.gomez2010.com and following him on Facebook and Twitter.

Michael Grimm, a former Deputy U.S. Marshall and FBI Special Agent, is running in New York’s 13th Congressional District. This decorated Marine and Persian Gulf War veteran took on organized crime and Wall Street corruption as an undercover agent. As a current small business owner, Michael understands that real economic growth comes from the private sector, not government. He’ll represent New Yorkers with just as much integrity and courage as he defended them in the FBI and the Marine Corps. Please join me in supporting Michael by visiting his website at www.grimmforcongress.com and following him on Facebook and Twitter.

Death by Facebook for Sarah Palin

Posted by Karen Allen on June 7, 2010

Cross-posted from Palintwibe.com:

About a week ago, I posted here samples of hate filled and violent threat tweets toward Governor Sarah Palin. It was not a pleasurable thing to do, but people need to be made aware, especially since Governor Palin has been accused of being hate inciting. The “love everyone and let’s just get along” crowd of the left feels warm and accepting toward every critter and human alive, minus a few select outspoken conservatives, with the main target of their hate being Sarah Palin.

It’s truly astonishing how such people that would consider themselves sane and loving can spew such vitrolic acid from their fingertips and mouths. Just what has Governor Palin and her family done to them personally? How can they wish death and give clear cut methods of achieving it with no remorse or second thought?

Does not Governor Palin have freedom of speech guaranteed to all citizens of the United States of America? Yet, I have never heard or seen anything said or written by her that called for anyone she disagreed with in the world of politics to be killed. And like it or not, I cannot call the cries for her dead body to be tortured and screwed into the oil spill as a plug “free speech” by any sane American.

What? You didn’t hear about that? I found out because TIME magazine’s online news feed page had a story on it. Check out this Facebook page and see for yourself. It calls for “two birds to be killed with one stone” on the information page. At the time of this writing, the group numbers 119,656, fans of the page 1,000,000 People Who Want to Plug the BP Oil Spill with Sarah Palin.

Sound ha, ha, funny? Not if you read the info and wall comments. I certainly hope that the Facebook community reports and flags this page enough to pull it. Facebook itself would do well to avoid any kind of liability or reputation issues by shutting it down quickly. Copycat pages are already popping up like here and here. They should all be eradicated, along with any other FB pages that suggest any person be used in that manner, not just Governor Palin.

If this particular site is gone before you get there to do your good duty of reporting it, take a gander at some screenshots. I call this the WALL OF SHAME. And to any of the fans of that page that may chance to stop by here:  Your mama should wash your mouths out with Lava Soap and send you to military school.

Was that too violent? I was taught not to say some things.

Oh, and one more thing….it’s all about the money, baby. The page’s creator has a Cafe Press store too. Yeah, they even sell stuff for the kiddies. Sick.

Warning: Language Advisory









There are plenty more examples, but you get the gist. Please report and flag this page and similar ones. It is people like these that are making our country a dangerous and divided place. May God help us all.

Be sure to tweet the Gov at @SarahPalinUSA with a Hi-5!

“The Pine Trees Know When It’s Easter”

Posted by Dr. Fay on April 3, 2010

It was in the mid-1970’s when someone first pointed out the pine tree “Easter crosses” to me.   A few days ago, I looked unsuccessfully for them in one group of pine trees.  But today I saw them at the top of nearby pine trees.  So I went to the Internet to see if others had described them.  And I found a beautiful story that has been repeated many times.  It can be found at this website, where it is accompanied by my favorite song.

Here is an excerpt from the story from this website

After a few minutes, I looked over at my husband and noticed a tear running down his cheek. I asked him what was wrong. This time he told me, “I was just thinking about Pop and a story he had once told me.” Of course, because it had to do with his Pop, I wanted to know the story, so I asked him to share it with me.

He said, “When I was about 8 years old, Pop and I were out fishing and that’s when he told me that the Pine trees know when it is Easter.”

I had no idea what he meant by that, so I pressed him for more information.

He continued on… “The Pine trees start their new growth in the weeks before Easter… If you look at the tops of the Pine trees two weeks before, you will see the yellow shoots. As the days get closer to Easter Sunday, the tallest shoot will branch off and form a cross. By the time Easter Sunday comes around, you will see that most of the Pine trees will have small yellow crosses on all of the tallest shoots.”

I turned to look out the window and I couldn’t believe my eyes. It was a week before Easter, and you could see all of the trees with the tall yellow shoots stretching to Heaven.

The tallest ones shone in the sunlight like rows of tiny golden crosses.

Many people are familiar with the legend of the dogwood tree that arose because of the appearance of its blossom:

Another fascinating legend is one that was told to me by a minister friend in Alabama who is a storyteller for the Cherokee.  It centers around the staurolite crosses that are found in greatest abundance in a 50-acre tract at the top of Bull Mountain in Virginia.

Cherokee legend has it that the tears of the Cherokee when they heard about the crucifixion of Christ were turned into these small stone crosses.  I don’t know whether their legend originated before or after the introduction of Christianity to North America.  However, the very existence of these little staurolite crosses makes one wonder if they are yet another message about the redemptive work of Jesus Christ.

It brings to mind Jesus’s words on what is now celebrated as Palm Sunday:

Luke 19:37-40 (King James Version)

 37And when he was come nigh, even now at the descent of the mount of Olives, the whole multitude of the disciples began to rejoice and praise God with a loud voice for all the mighty works that they had seen;

 38Saying, Blessed be the King that cometh in the name of the Lord: peace in heaven, and glory in the highest.

 39And some of the Pharisees from among the multitude said unto him, Master, rebuke thy disciples.

 40And he answered and said unto them, I tell you that, if these should hold their peace, the stones would immediately cry out.

But after the cross came the resurrection.  Governor Palin eloquently expressed the hope that these two events brought to the world:

Some may wonder why we merrily celebrate at a time when we’re remembering Christ’s crucifixion on the cross. And there is something to that. Good Friday is, after all, about God who became Man, dying on the cross for our sins. And yet we celebrate Easter Sunday, and we are right to do so.

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life” (John 3:16). This one verse sums up the miracle that is the Easter season and helps explain the celebration. Yes, Christ died for us, but in the end Easter isn’t a season of sadness. Ultimately, the story of Christ’s rising from the dead three days after the crucifixion is the story of the triumph of hope over despair.

Sarah Palin: American Heroes Ready and Willing to Serve in Congress

Posted by Dr. Fay on March 29, 2010

Complete Transcript of Governor Palin’s Facebook Note:

American Heroes Ready and Willing to Serve in Congress

 Today at 1:29pm

America, if you love your freedom, thank a vet! And if you’re looking for leaders who believe in integrity, service, and country first, look to our veterans.

Last week I campaigned for a true American hero, John McCain, and this week I’d ask you to join me in supporting a new generation of heroes who are heeding their country’s call for leadership in Washington.

There are a number of great veteran candidates running for office this year, and there are some excellent organizations dedicated to helping them, including: Iraq Vets for Congress and Combat Veterans for Congress (please click on the links to visit their websites).

There are three veterans in particular I’ll be supporting this week.

The first is Major Vaughn Ward, a fourth-generation Idaho native who grew up on his family’s farm in Shoshone and is running in Idaho’s 1st Congressional District. Coming from a family with a proud military tradition, Vaughn joined the Marine Corps after college and was finishing up his service when the September 11th attacks occurred. He put his life on hold and heeded his country’s call – serving first as a CIA Operations Officer and later volunteering with the Marine Corps for a combat tour in Iraq, during which he was awarded the Bronze Star with Combat V. After returning from Iraq, Vaughn went to work for the McCain/Palin campaign. I was grateful for his support then, and I’m happy to support him now because I know that he believes in the same commonsense conservative ideals that we cherish. Vaughn knows that real job growth comes from the private sector, not government. He believes in free market reforms, tax relief for families and small businesses, and a return to a constitutionally limited government that lives within its means. He’ll carry the conservative banner to Washington and will rein in the reckless growth of government to get it back on our side. And remember, a vote for Vaughn is a vote to remove the gavel from Nancy Pelosi’s grip. Please visit Vaughn’s website here to make a donation to his campaign, and follow him on Facebook and Twitter.

The second veteran is Captain Adam Kinzinger, a decorated special-operations pilot who flew combat missions in Iraq and Afghanistan. Adam is running for Illinois’ 11th Congressional District against a freshman incumbent congresswoman who seemed to pull a bait and switch on voters to get elected. She sounded like a blue dog on the campaign trail, but didn’t vote like one in Washington. Instead, she voted in lockstep with the Pelosi agenda – on Obamacare, the stimulus, cap-and-tax – and the list goes on. She’s part of the reason for Congress’ 11% approval rating. Adam is a strong fiscal conservative with a proven track record as a reformer from his years serving on his local county board. Adam started out in local office, and, like many of us, believes in making government more accountable to the people. When you serve in local office, your constituents truly are your neighbors. Adam understands this, and I know that he will listen to his constituents and work for us, not against us, in Washington. Please visit Adam’s website here to make a donation to his campaign, and follow him on Facebook and Twitter.

The third veteran is Lieutenant Colonel Allen West, a decorated war hero who’s served with distinction in combat zones in Iraq and Afghanistan. Many of you may have heard of Allen from a speech he gave last year that became a viral video on YouTube with over 2 million viewers. Allen’s personal story is a testament to the commonsense conservative belief that our nation’s greatness is rooted in freedom, because with freedom comes equal opportunity, and that, coupled with hard work, leads to success. Allen is a small government fiscal conservative running against a leftwing ideologue who’s marched to the beat of Nancy Pelosi on every issue from cap-and-tax to the stimulus, TARP, and, of course, Obamacare. It’s time to send Allen to Washington in his place. Please visit Allen’s website here to donate to his campaign, and follow him on Facebook and Twitter.

I believe that these great veterans will fight for us in D.C. to uphold and defend our constitution as courageously in the halls of Congress as they did on the field of battle. I’m so honored to offer my support to these American heroes, and I hope you’ll join me in helping them so that they can serve us all in Washington.

– Sarah Palin
