    Sarah Palin

    Has anybody read her book Going Rogue an American Life?

    My wife bought me a copy and finished it the other day, I think she's the best shot this country has, and she and Texas Gov Rick Perry would make a hell of a team in the White House if it is still there in 2012.

    She explains alot of what people have been saying or have been assuming since she resigned gov of Alaska.

    And before any of you liberal kool aid drinkers start running your mouths, read the book (if you know haw to read)

    Rick

    I saw where AlGore is making an even bigger ass out of himself, trying to debate her through the media on Global Warming. Amazing. It's like all the Democrat officials arguing with Dick Cheney. Uh, psst! Hey dumbasses - drop your pants and have a public argument with somebody who's not even in government anymore! That's right - get into an argument with a private citizen, and see if you can manage to lose!


    Although she'll never be President, I hope Palin's around a long time to act as a "target drone." She really draws the idiots out. It's like the thing in Kentucky where the DNR put up plastic deer in a field, then arrested hunters as they stopped on the road to shoot at it. All these liberals teeing off on Palin and Cheney are like those hunters - hey, after you fire at them 5 times and they don't go away - don't you dumbasses start to get the idea you've been had?


    (Speaking of idiots - I think I hear one coming now...)

    She should have called it, "When the going got tough, I quit".

    I have been wanting to read this book but I must admit I am a little scared. I love what Sarah stands for (I actually just love her in general) but every time she does an interview I just have to cringe. Even the interview she did with Hannity, she is just not real eloquent. At one point she sat there for a second trying to think of the words she wanted to use and then conceeded and said "and things like that."

    I am not trying to bash SArah I think she is intelligient and is Quite possibly the most beautiful women God has ever created. I simply think she struggles when she tries to get her point across and it makes her look awkward and unintelligent, which I do not think is the case. I will give her book a chance when the library gets it in stock.

    Hmmm, I wonder if she looked like Janet Reno if she would garner all this attention. Never mind I know the answer.

    Buzz-Gun writes "She really draws the idiots out." He's right but she does that from the conservative right as well as the liberal left.

    "She should have called it, "When the going got tough, I quit"."

    I actually read the book. She talks about all of the ethics complaints that drove her from office. There was an ethics complaint filed that stated that female employess of the State of Alaska wore sweaters that were too tight.

    The way Alaska law is set up, the governor is required to pay all legal fees for such things out of pocket. Sarah had to pay a lawyer to defend her of the charges that surrounded "Cleavage Gate"!

    As the topic starter requested, please respond IF you have read the book.

    Go Palin!!

    By the way, I have a lot of admiration for Todd Palin- I don't know how he refrained from wrecking shop on Letterman and people that have attacked his family like they have.

    YSR-RACER You sound just like a Chicago to California liberal head case. You libs just can't stand someone that expects each individual to take responsibility for their lives. The government is not the answer and you need look no further than the state you reside in and the corrupt city you left behind. Maybe you and Charles can get a room together and and do some bonding. It seems you two should get along quite well.

    She really does know what to say to the talking heads, it's too bad she can't because they couldn't stand the truth.

    And I agree her husband has to be tough as hell not to whip the shit out of a bunch of the talking heads that will skew anything she says to make her sound bad.

    "Quite possibly the most beautiful women God has ever created."



    Do you live in a cave on a mountain top with monks BrowningPotato and don't get out very much--or perhaps an eskimo?


    I will admit she's attractive, but hardly one of the most. If her only competition was Miss Hathaway, she'd surely win but there are many I can think of who put her in the above average category. Each to their own though.


    I did hear from reliable sources that she has knarly toes. This is not a problem if you're not a foot man BP.

    What difference does it make what Gov Palin "looks like" for c**ps sake. What matters is that she is intelligent, understands right from wrong, has a good clear conservative understanding of the country, absolutely believes in the Constitution and the limitations of government, and actually believes in simple ideas like freedom and citizens rights. When she speaks it is from the heart, not reading off multiple teleprompters, so I have no problems when the occasional hesitation or "stumble" happens in live speaking. Which of you could speak and answer questions for 30 or 60 minutes without a prepared speech or teleprompter. Or do you really want another Obama? All speech and no substance. The, BTW, is a great read and gives you a lot of insight into what makes Sarah Palin tick.

    Go Palin, I hope she does run for office in 2012 and kick the sh!t out of Obama's backside.

    As for you people who are be-littling Palin, all your doing is showing everyone here how you voted. That is for Obama. With the fact that you did vote for OBAMA just makes you a HYPOCRITE because you have guns and you shoot. I'm also sure that because you voted for OBAMA you have the idea that the anti gun people will not go after your guns. Yeah right. Small minds with small thoughts. Well thats a Dem for you. Rep rule and Dem well you know what I could say.

    Palin 2012 and 2016

    Sara Palin...The ultimate air head...as a Canadian who is about to get shot to hell for stating the obvious...If the rest of the world had a vote in the American elections as many in the world think we should... she would not even be a candidate.

    I am a conservative not a liberal or a socialist, but I have a tendency to call a spade a spade. This women quit as governor of a great state to make money, and lead a small faction of uninformed, radical, non thinking, Glen Beck loving people who are are completely caught up in the FOX NEWS propaganda. You may not like your current President... but he is YOUR president, not some piece of trash.

    Like it or not the guy you elected can and will think circles around Sara, and the American conservative movement must keep in mind that it is a benefit to the whole country to have someone that is THOUGHTFUL in the Whitehouse rather than some moron that makes decisions based on emotion, or what Dick tells him he should say.

    Even Carl Rove has recently acknowledged that your President is representing your interests around the world admirably.

    It is really funny how the critics come out of the woodwork when Sarah Palin's name comes up. They wouldn't be trying to marginalize her if her message was not resonating with the American people.

    Here is what they are afraid of:


    By Dewie Whetsell, Alaskan Fisherman.
    As posted in comments on Greta's article referencing the MOVEON ad
    about Sarah Palin.


    The last 45 of my 66 years I've spent in a commercial fishing town in
    Alaska . I understand Alaska politics but never understood national
    politics well until this last year. Here's the breaking point: Neither
    side of the Palin controversy gets it. It's not about persona, style,
    rhetoric, it's about doing things. Even Palin supporters never mention
    the things that I'm about to mention here.

    1. Democrats forget when Palin was the Darling of the Democrats,
    because as soon as Palin took the Governor's office away from a fellow
    Republican and tough SOB, Frank Murkowski, she tore into the
    Republican's "Corrupt Bastards Club" (CBC) and sent them packing. Many
    of them are now residing in State housing and wearing orange jump suits
    The Democrats reacted by skipping around the yard, throwing confetti
    and singing, "la la la la" (well, you know how they are). Name another
    governor in this country that has ever done anything similar.

    2. Now with the CBC gone, there were fewer Alaskan politicians to
    protect the huge, giant oil companies here. So she constructed and
    enacted a new system of splitting the oil profits called "ACES." Exxon
    (the biggest corporation in the world) protested and Sarah told them,
    "don't let the door hit you in the stern on your way out." They stayed,
    and Alaska residents went from being merely wealthy to being filthy
    rich. Of course, the other huge international oil companies meekly fell
    in line. Again, give me the name of any other governor in the country
    that has done anything similar.

    3. The other thing she did when she walked into the governor's office
    is she got the list of State requests for federal funding for projects,
    known as "pork." She went through the list, took 85% of them and placed
    them in the "when-hell-freezes-over" stack. She let locals know that if
    we need something built, we'll pay for it ourselves. Maybe she figured
    she could use the money she got from selling the previous governor's
    jet because it was extravagant.

    Maybe she could use the money she saved by dismissing the
    governor's cook (remarking that she could cook for her own family),
    giving back the State vehicle issued to her, maintaining that she
    already had a car, and dismissing her State provided security force
    (never mentioning - I imagine - that she's packing heat herself). I'm
    still waiting to hear the names of those other governors.


    4. Now, even with her much-ridiculed "gosh and golly" mannerism, she
    also managed to put together a totally new approach to getting a
    natural gas pipeline built which will be the biggest private
    construction project in the history of North America. No one else could
    do it although they tried. If that doesn't impress you, then you're
    trying too hard to be unimpressed while watching her do things like
    this while baking up a batch of brownies with her other hand.


    5. For 30 years, Exxon held a lease to do exploratory drilling at a
    place called Point Thompson. They made excuses the entire time why they
    couldn't start drilling. In truth they were holding it like an
    investment. No governor for 30 years could make them get started. Then,
    she told them she was revoking their lease and kicking them out. They
    protested and threatened court action. She shrugged and reminded them
    that she knew the way to the court house. Alaska won again.


    6. President Obama wants the nation to be on 25% renewable resources
    for electricity by 2025. Sarah went to the legislature and submitted
    her plan for Alaska to be at 50% renewables by 2025. We are already at
    25%. I can give you more specifics about things done, as opposed to
    style and persona Everybody wants to be cool, sound cool, look cool.
    But that's just a cover-up. I'm still waiting to hear from liberals the
    names of other governors who can match what mine has done in two and a
    half years. I won't be holding my breath.


    By the way, she was content to return to AK after the national election
    and go to work, but the haters wouldn't let her. Now these adolescent
    screechers are obviously not scuba divers. And no one ever told them
    what happens when you continually jab and pester a barracuda. Without
    warning, it will spin around and tear your face off. Shoulda known
    better.


    You have just read the truth about Sarah Palin that sends the media,
    along with the democrat party, into a wild uncontrolled frenzy to
    discredit her. I guess they are only interested in skirt chasers,
    dishonesty, immoral people, liars, womanizers, murderers, and bitter
    ex-presidents' wives.


    So "You go, Girl." I only wish the men in Washington had your guts,
    determination, honesty, and morals. I rest my case. Only FOOLS
    listen to the biased media.

    >> YSR-RACER You sound just like a Chicago to California liberal head case.

    You're close; I'm a Chicago to Phoenix to California ultra right wing conservative republican.

    And as an ultra right wing conservative republican I'm embarrassed that the best my party could do was Sarah Palin and John McCain. Hell, we gave the election to Democrats.

    If we run Palin again, we'll give it to the Dems again.
