"Going Rogue": Sarah Palin trashes Katie Couric on 8 full pages - and has something nice to say about Steve Schmidt! - UPDATE!

scarah palin


What an exciting day we had yesterday! The unexpected email from Christopher Goff, Senior Vice President at Harper Collins, made our day. Many things happened as a result: We made lots of new and important friends, received a large amount of new visitors and the blogsphere showed its muscles and closed ranks in solidarity (many thanks again to Andrew Sullivan, Wonkette and Buzzflash for linking to us). With the new attention we used the unexpected opportunity to get one of our most important messages across to a greatly enlarged audience: That Sarah Palin faked her pregnancy with Trig (it's a FACT, in case you didn't know yet).

Christopher Goff, can we get more emails from you, please?

Palingates and Linda Kellen Biegel's blog "Celtic Diva" were singled out by Harper Collins- why? Other blogs and websites also published extensive excerpts of Sarah Palin's "Book of Lies" - but did they receive a letter by our new friend Christopher Goff? Noooooooooo!

The investigative bloggers are "the" thorn in Sarah Palin's side. We are not afraid of the Quitter Queen, and we are ready to expose her many lies - after all, the MSM has failed on many levels and has for example conveniently overlooked the fact that from an objective point of view, the facts regarding her pregnancy with Trig DO NOT ADD UP. They never have. Believe me: I would not be so stupid to write here as a FACT in public that Sarah Palin had faked her pregancy if I didn't know with 100% certainty that it is indeed a FACT.

Mr Van Flein, do you hear me?

Today I thought it would be a good idea to leave the babygate stuff for now and have some change - there will be many more opportunities to examine her inventions and distortions about her "pregnancy" with Trig in "Going Insane"....pardon, "Going Rogue" in the future.

So I thought: Why not take a closer look at what Sarah Palin has dictated her ghostwriter about Steve Schmidt and Katie Couric!

Let's start with a surprise: Sarah Palin DOES actually have some "good things" to say about McCain's campaign manager Steve Schmidt! Read this:

Davis made the introductions. First, Steve Schmidt, veteran campaign manager, an imposing, gruff-voiced guy who wore sunglasses atop his bald head in the middle of the night. Schmidt, aka "the Bullet", told me he'd managed Arnold Schwarzenegger's gubernational campaign, handled press relations for Dick Cheney, and worked on George W. Bush's 2004 reelection campaign. I knew instantly that Schmidt was business-to-the-bone. I respect that in person, as I'm not one for a lot of chitchat either, and we were very comfortable with each other right off the bat. As a public relations troubleshooter, Schmidt specialized in shaping public opinion. His peers told me he has a laserlike ability to spot chinks in an opponents's armour. He is a guy who inspires loyalty: in spite of his steely exterior, people who work for him really want to please him.

(pages 212, 213)


Haha, I guess Steve Schmidt "the bullet" is firing in the wrong direction now!

Also on page 213, there is a funny quote which she attributes to Steve Schmidt, when Sarah talks about his achievements during the 2004 Bush campaign:

He (Schmidt) was looking for the advantage, and he thought he had found it in Kerry's assertion during the debate that the United States of America needed to pass a "global test" before choosing to act militarily. While the press and the Kerry team were picking apart Bush's performance, Schmidt had found a single, unspent shell he would use to make war. "He told one staffer", "We're going to ram 'global test' right up John Kerry's ass."

Well, I wonder what Steve Schmidt will ram up somebody else's ass after he has read "Going Rogue" in full! ;-)

About ABC's Charlie Gibson, Sarah says that during the "Bush doctrine" interview, he

...peered sceptically at me over his bifocals like a high school principal. (page 271)

Now comes Katie Couric - more than 8 full pages just talking about Katie Couric!

It would probably be difficult to find another person who Sarah Palin ever has hated more in her life. Consequently, the first sentence is:

As for Katie Couric - where do I begin?

(p. 271)


Sarah goes on to say:

If all you know of me comes from that interview, then you don't know me. Needless to say, I have had better interviews. Out of the many, many hours of tape, I had bad moments just like everyone else. I choked on a couple of responses, and in the harried pace of the campaign, I mistakenly let myself become annoyed and frustrated with many of her repetitive, biased questions. What I didn't know was that those few moments would come to define the interviews; they were repeated and mocked so often that everything else has seemingly been forgotten. And that is unfortunate. (p. 271)

Sarah then explains that she believed that there would only be one interview with Katie Couric, and about that one she says:

The first stop was a segment at a hotel near the United Nations, which then turned into a walk-and-talk in front of the UN itself. It didn't go well. I readily admit I did what no politician should ever do - let her annoyance show. I was anxious to get this interview over with and cou could tell, which was my mistake. (p. 272)

Now it comes - poor little Sarah is getting screwed over by CBS and her staffers - as "partners in crime", so to speak...

Ironically, as all this was going through my head, when the walk-and-talk ended and the cameras clicked off, one of the CBS producers, a nice New Yorker with a big presence and a loud voice, walked up to me and started singing my praises. "You did great, Governor, just great! I mean, you just got better and better as you went!"

The Nicolle (Wallace, P.) walked over. "That was great! Now, for tomorrow we're going to---"

"There's going to be a 'tomorrow'?", I asked?

"Yeah, there's another segment - you were really good today."

I thought, Dear Lord, if that's what you call a good interview, then I don't know what a bad one is.

As I walked away, I glanced back and saw Nicolle and Katie share a friendly hug. Then they posed for pictures.

(p. 272)

Then Sarah goes on over great length on more then three pages to explain how her CBS interviews with Katie Couric were unfairly edited! It is simply unbelievable. Funnily, "unbelievable" is also the very last word Sarah uses at the end of the "Katie Couric chapter" (although the sub-chapters have no titles).

Here is a part of what Sarah has to say:

Katie and her producers decided on which fraction America would see - and let's just say the emphasis was on my worst moments. Editing footage is nothing new, of course; I created video packages when I worked as a sports reporter. But responsible editing means you keep substance and context, and trim out fat. When I saw the final cut, it was clear that CBS had sought out the bad moments, and systematically sliced out material that would accurately convey my message. The sin of omission was glaring. (p. 272)

Sarah Palin then gives a few examples of what CBS according to her edited out, and then adds:

I knew the media would distort my responses on social issues. But I thought surely they couldn't distort my economics and energy-related responses, because they would have to stick with the facts. I was mistaken. Though Katie edited out substantive answers, she dutifully kept in the moments where I wore my annoyance on my sleeve. For instance, when she asked me how living in Alaska informed my foreign policy experience, I began by trying to frame the geographical context. Lower 48ers grow up seeing our state tucked with Hawaii in a little square off the coast of Mexico on the nightly news weather map. So I began by trying to squeeze a geographical primer into a ten-second sound bite, explaining that only a narrow maritime border separates Alaska from Russia, that we're very near the Pacific Rim countries, and that we're bordered by Canada. But Katie interrupted and I did not complete my answer. I wish now I had stopped her and said, "Here's the geographical context. Now may I answer your question?" (p. 274)

Then Sarah explaines on another full page why her famous "we can see Russia from Alaska" answer wasn't that bad, and how she could have easily expanded her answer and could have said so many more clever things - the only problem is: She didn't. That's a fact. But did Sarah Palin ever care about facts? Certainly not in her conclusion:

But Katie's purpose - shared by most media types - seemed to be to frame a "gotcha" moment. And it worked. Instead of my scoring points for John McCain, I knew that I had let the team down. (p. 275)

Oh, my God, then comes the next Katie Couric interview, and 3 1/2 more pages about it. Katie Couric truly is Sarah Palin's nemesis. A bit like the personified devil, I guess. Sarah writes:

But when I finished (...) Bexie opened the curtain to let me backstage, there was Katie. Again. With a microphone in hand. I tried really hard to smile, but wondered again about a media strategy that involved ignoring objective journalists and continuing with a reporter who clearly had a partisan agenda. In a situation like this, I's have thought expert political strategists would realize that you don't drown by falling in the water; you drown by staying there. But that's what we did. (p. 276)

Bad bad Katie doesn't stop to harrass poor Sarah:

On the bus, the topic turned to social issues. Katie asked me if I thought it was possible to "pray away gay" - to convert homosexuals to heterosexuality through prayer. Hmmm, I thought. Odd question. I don't think she really wanted to hear my answer because she interrupted me five times as I tried to give it. The badgering had begun. This is really annoying me, I thought. The she asked me about abortion and the morning-after pill twelve times. Twelve different times. I answered as graciously and as patiently as I could. Each time, I reiterated my pro-life, pro-woman, pro-adoption position. But no matter how many ways I tried to say it, Katie responded by asking her question again in a slightly different way. I began to feel like I was in the movie Groundhog Day. (p. 277)


Ok, enough Katie Couric and "Going Rogue" for now. I have to say: Sarah Palin's book is highly entertaining. It is a must-read, because never before was one able to witness so much insanity by a politician written down in a book.

Christopher Goff, I personally would like to thank you for this fascinating reading experience and for the fact that you published Sarah's book. A world without "Going Rogue" is already unimaginable. Never before has a politician exposed herself in such an embarassing way in front of a world-wide audience. What an achievement! Thanks, Harper Collins, for NOT fact-checking the book. I get the impression that you actually didn't like Sarah Palin too much - because you tell a "real friend" if he/she got something wrong, in order to help him/her. It's clear that you had no intention of helping Sarah and correcting her lies before they were going to be published.

Christopher Goff, have you ever dared to question Sarah Palin about her "pregnancy" with Trig? I think you should.

+++

UPDATE:

It looks that Harper Collins will soon have much more serious problems than a few citizen-bloggers discussing excerpts from "Going Rogue".

The Alaskan Republican politician and blogger Andrew Halcro (who is held in the highest regard by several of my sources in Alaska) today has posted an ominous "Monday comment" which Christopher Goff and his colleagues should not overlook.

Andrew Halcro writes:

According to the brief excerpts I've heard, the book seems like it's less about her and more about blaming everybody around her for all of her short comings. From her lack of intelligence to her pregnant daughter, no matter what the problem or criticism, it's always somebody elses fault and never hers.

However, once the book is on the street beginnig Monday, those throughout Palin's 413 page pity party that suffer the wild blows of her imagination will come forward with guns blazing to refute the revisionist history Palin has penned.

From the brief passages that Palin has written about me in her book, the terms unmitigated lies, narcissistic delusions and libel came to mind first.

Obviously she never learned the timely Confucius warning:

"Before you embark on a journey of revenge, dig two graves."

Beginning Monday...the people whom Palin has attacked in her book will start reaching for their own shovels.


From all that I have heard about Andrew Halcro so far, he is a man who means business.

For all the people who have not heard about Andrew Halcro yet or don't know him very well, you can watch Andrew Halcro in this clip, taken during the campaign for the Alaskan Governship in 2006, where Andrew Halcro ran as an Independent. In the clip, Andrew Halcro discusses with Sarah Palin what they would do if their daughters were raped and found that they were pregnant as a result of it. Please take an educated guess what Sarah Palin's answer was...

Furthermore, Andrew Halcro recently announced that he will challenge U.S. Rep. Don Young in the 2010 Republican primary.

EDIT: I have now chosen also to embedd the video clip with Andrew Halcro and Sarah Palin, because it's a very important discussion.

@ THe Smoke

I agree, they were pretty easy questions. But even if they were hard--about complex issues that require more than just a knee-jerk, Conservative-scripted response--that wouldn't have been out of line to ask of someone who thinks she is qualified to run for VP (with a good chance of having to step in as Pres). She should have been asked harder questions right from the start. She still is not asked to answer any hard questions even now. I hope that's about to change.

Some very nice comments on wonkette about how reading palingates re-shaped their opinions or at least re-thinking some things. Several people specifically mention the wite-out as a game changer.

If the same proportion of all last night's visitors got the same view of wite-out, then the numbers are in the thousands at least.

Anonymous said...

Once again she's making excuses for her own failures/inadequacies. If she's going to blame it on anyone, she should blame it on God, because at one point in the book she says that God has total control of her.

CR46 said...

Thank You for challenging Sarah and Van Flea with the FACT her supposed pregnancy with Trig was fake.
And poor Sarh STILL whining about a "softball" interview with Katie Couric, she is a whiner to the very core. Gosh, she whines more about the "media" asking what newspapers she reads than others in the media stating that her pregnancy with Trig was FAKE. LOL!! Does anyone see something here? I do she cannot prove that Trig is her biological son or there would be a court battle. While I have nothing against adoption, my son was adopted at age six, I do have an issue with people who hide adoptions from their children..it can be emotionally damaging later. Best to be open from day one and be an advocate for adoption.
And who else thinks that the reason that Trig is NOT on the book tour with his (fake) mother and sisters is that now w/hearing aides and glasses he's not as cute or as quiet a stage prop anymore( personally I think little kiddos are ALL cute no matter what)

ArmchairJane said...

Just because Sarah is ignorant of geography doesn't mean everybody else is! She apparently thinks most people learn about U.S. geography by looking at nightly news weather maps. Well, maybe HER fans think Alaska is located somewhere off the coast of Mexico, considering they seem to think Hawaii is in Africa...

Again, she protests too much regarding Katie. I have noticed that in some Oprah and Barbara Walters interview clips that have already aired, Palin seems to answer questions using language that is very nearly word for word the same as in her book. This reminds me of how she never fails to describe energy policy without using that phrase about Alaska energy resources "flowing to hungry markets". I suspect Couric asked some of the questions repeatedly because Palin was not actually answering the question that was being asked, but instead was diverting to one of her memorized policy phrases.

Anonymous said...

Hey, Sarah, I've got some more excuses for you: my ghostwriter, Lynn Vincent is a hack; Harper Collins was so hellbent on making a buck that they skipped the fact checking.

CC said...

I was just reading the comments at Wonkette, too. I Loooooove that they came over to read more about the Quitter, especially the WhiteOut abortion/miscarriage comments they picked up and ran with.

As I mentioned on the previous post ... I still believe the abortion is what will bring her down a few notches with her crowd. They are delusional enough to defend babygate ... but not abortion. IMO

Keep up the great work, Patrick et al.

I am soooo loving this.

Great work, Patrick and Regina. Katie Couric is the nicest of the anchors and had the most in common with Sarah Palin - an attractive working mother in a powerful high profile position. Palin is too dumb to know that Katie was her sympathetic interviewer.

But Sarah only likes to flirt with men, so Katie was her Waterloo.

Sarah Palin is jealous of any attractive woman smarter than she is. Or maybe just any woman smarter than she is. And guess what, Sarah? Most of us are.

Thank you, Jesse, for helping to expose Sarah Palin's lies to the world. Good work, son.

But reading these excerpts has been more than entertaining.

I now admit I've reserved a copy of Going Rogue at our local library for the best laugh I'll have all year.

MarvinM said...

Exactly, Armchair Jane@15.50. She doesn't listen to the question asked and projects her... whatever .... onto it. Just like the "what do you read" question, she claims (in Zeiglers MediaMalpractice" that she thought the question was condescending to Alaskans, because what she heard was "So, what do you undereducated people up there in Alaska read ? Do you in fact have any newspapers or magazines up there?". But that was not the question Couric asked. Fail for SP.

And yes, it is very condescending to think that the American public does not know where Alaska is in proximity to Canada and Russia. So once again, SP fails because she did not simply answer the question that was asked.

So yes, I can imagine that Couric had to ask her questions over and over, because Sarah was simply not answering them.

I'm all for Katie Couric releasing what else she's got on tape of that interview. I'm not making a point to watch Oprah or the Barbara Walters, but I would watch the uncut SP interviews.

TheSmoke, welcome indeed! Hopefully more people will realize that even though Sarah herself is a ditz, and therefore would seem harmless, it is the puppet masters pushing her ignorant rhetoric that are the ones to watch with a very wary eye. Those would be the same people who got cutsey boy George W. Bush into office, and kept him there for 8 years, so they could pillage our economy with their policies to line their own pockets.

These puppet masters use religion as their tool. They got the idea from the televangelists who successfully sucked the life savings out of the “faithful” because Jesus told them. (rolling eyes)

To Jesse Cornish,

Cause I know you will show up here sometime today.

Stop worrying about these guys here. They have never been able to prove anything. They like to think they know what is the truth, but they dont.

There is no proof out there. It either doesn't exist or has been destroyed. And only a handful of people who will never tell really know what happended in that room.

Palin knows it, that is why she is so comfortable writing what she did in her book, on the record for all to see. She knows no matter how much fun the bloggers have with disecting her book, they will never be able to prove babygate. Never.

She is not worried about it and niether should you be. You will not convince these people, its futile to try. Just leve them to their nonsense. It makes them happy and fills thier days with something that makes them feel like they have a purpose. Why would want to take that from them. They will have it until the day they die, because they will never get what they seek.

Babygate will never be exposed no matter how many times they tease that it will. Let me repeat, they do not have proof or evidence at all. Hearsay and anonymous "sources" will not cut it. The people that know will never never never tell them.

So leave them alone, it keeps them busy with something useless, so they dont put their energy towards something that will actually produce a result.

Rest easy Jesse, and dont get your panties in wad. Babygate is never going to come out. Let them pretend they know what they are doing

When you dance with Palin, libel lawsuits will always be in your future. CBJ-- this means you, too, sweetie.

By the way, I agree that Palin wited-out her bill for an abortion, hid it from Todd, as he was gone during the time she got pregnant by Brad (though she claims that affair was never consummated -- but I think we all know how good her word is).

I think Todd still believes her and he may be in for a rather rude new reason not to trust his wife. But then, she can't trust him, either, can she?

They deserve each other, frankly. Both of them aren't capable of being faithful or truthful.

I hope and encourage CBS to release all of the interviews with Palin. Go with it.

Also, I will be at one of her book signings, Columbus Ohio, Wash PA, or Rochester, NY. Don't want to say which one. Surprise!

I will bring many copies of the page 56 reference to the medical record and white out. Just a hint to have everyone besure to read that page.

Interesting schedule: Friday in Columbus Ohio. Evening interview. Sat am in Wash PA to 6 pm in Rochester.

It's about 2 hours from Columbus, OH to Wash PA and a good 6 hrs at least to Rochester. I bet she will shorten Wash PA or skip it to make Rochester.

I suggest if anyone else is near another book signing to takecopies of this page and othersto the signing and pass it out.

Thank you so much for the continued pursuit of truth. I can see the pieces fitting together now, much more clearly. She had an abortion, lied to Todd. Then so there would never be question she adopts a special needs baby. Nobody would accuse her of an abortion if she goes ahead with a pregnancy of a special needs baby. Except we know he was an adoption, and now we know why!! I can't tell you the relief that I feel today. The pieces are starting to fit together. Crazy as they are, they make sense in her mind, I am sure. Thanks again for all your hard work. You can fool some of the people some of the time, BUT you guys are the BEST!! Stay with it.

Piper's Halloween costume!!! This was discussed on Oprah!!! Why did this not end up on cutting room floor? Oprah, what a waste of valuable time. Why didn't you use your time asking difficult questions! Now I know why this interview was scheduled so early in the tour: it was to get in and out of interviews with perceived "Librul Media" types before they could adequately digest the contents (and implications) of what is written in that book. Methinks Oprah did (or her staff) did not have enought time to read or check blogs like this before the interview. Same with BW interview.

What infuriates me is how EASY Katie was on her, and she's complaining? Katie didn't ask her questions that she would have asked ANYONE else. Why? Because Katie was so obviously easing Palin into the world of national media.

I work as a TV interviewer, and I can tell you that Katie was trying to get Palin to unwind, show herself to the people, answer the question in a real way instead of the canned answers that made no sense.

She was TRYING to help her.

Sweet Jesus. This is how Palin repays her? Just who's fault was it that Palin dropped the ball on the SOFTBALL Question of what do you read?

That was a giveaway question, meant to help her ease into things! For god's sake, what leader of the free world would find that a hard question to answer?

Crickets!

The woman had clearly JUST memorized the names of several world leaders, and was pronouncing them incorrectly or carefully. It was painfully obvious that she wasn't ready to have a REAL talk, so Katie softballed her, and what does she get for it?

They typical narcissistic response of throwing the helper under the bus because the narcissist can't own up to their own failings.

Dd ya see this yet Patrick? She may have left Levi out of the book but looks like she attempts her high school girl revenge on Oprah.


Palin attacks Levi
So much for the high road.

This is a recognizable Palin move: She knows what she's supposed to say, says it, then dives into the fray anyway:

Asked by Oprah about Levi Johnston, Palin, R-Alaska, responded: "I don't think a national television show is the place to discuss some of things he'd been doing and saying."

She continued: "By the way, I don't know if we call him Levi -- I hear he goes by the name Ricky Hollywood now, so, if that's the case, we don't want to mess up this gig he's got going…. Kind of this aspiring, aspiring porn -- the things that he's doing. It's kind of heartbreaking."

Oprah clarified that Palin was referencing Johnston's decision to pose for "Playgirl."

Said Palin: "I call that porn, yes. So it's a bit heartbreaking to see the road that he's on right now."

The Ricky Hollywood thing, by the way, is a piece of Levi esoterica she seems to have picked up from a Daily Beast write who went shopping with him.

If Sarah did not choose to prepare for her interview with Katy, then the poor showing is Sarah's fault and no one else's. If she was so easily annoyed with a few questions about reading and geography, imagine how well Sarah would have handled the vice presidency.

I suggest that we all write to CBS and have them release the full interview, perhaps as part of Sixty Minutes this Sunday. Would serve as a good response to eight pages of unwarranted Katy bashing, and I am sure that they want to protect their image as professionals.

For Sarah to still be fighting that battle more than a year later shows how petty and immature she is. And, I hope that anyone who feels that the insults reach the level of libel take legal action against both Sarah (for writing it) and Harper Collins (for publishing it without legal vetting). They deserve everything thing that they get.

I just remembered the "porn" quote and was about to mention it here when I see 17:57 brought it up. Yes - that was another memorable zinger from Palin. I sure hope she will be consistent and call out her friend Carrie for the same thing. At least Levi was just posing with a hockey stick.

Another thing about criticism of Oprah playing "softball" - well - Piper and Willow were sitting there in the front row (when not on the couch) - Palin made sure Oprah couldn't get too tough, what with her prop children sitting there.

Isn't Oprah the same woman that referred to being locked out of some fancy purse shop in Britain (because they had already closed) "the worst thing that's ever happened to her" or something like that. She wasn't able to purchase a $15k purse after hours and somehow that takes precedence over the boo hoo story she wants us to believe about her childhood?

I just wanted to say something about why women dispise Ms. Palin. It is not jealousy. It is the fact that here is a mean, uninformed person portraying herself as a sweet, intelligent, do-it-all gal. That hurts. We who know her know that is as far from reality as it gets. Those of us that really are kind and struggling to get further up the ladder feel sold out and trampled on by this woman who is using the rest of us as rungs to get up that ladder. And the goal for her is popularity and to be the envy of all. The goal for us that work our butt's off in school and work to better ourselves, is to prove that it is about what you accomplish, not how you look. We are slipping back into a second class position again, and it is infuriating to see people worshipping this example of "today's woman". We've come a long way baby.

Having resigned from her post as governor in July, Palin was asked by Winfrey what prompted her decision to leave office and whether it was a move calculated to pave the way for the 2012 presidential election.

"I resigned as governor of Alaska because I wasn't going to run for a second term," Palin said.

Asked why she didn't "finish what she started," Palin said, "Alaska was being hampered by my presence there."

Wite-Out and Sarah Palin are synonymous. The word does not only represent this one incident. It is what she does with most everything. You can add Dr."Wite-Out" Baldwin-Johnson since she stands by the worst letter in American history to survive the wrath of true historians.

Anonymous said...

I was not allowed to whine, even as a 2 year old. Sarah Palin's incessant whining is too much. I just read that ABC thing and I mean really....

is she not responsible for ANYTHING?

Lilybart, I know what you mean; my job is in the spotlight a bit, as well, and I was a professional model. The difference is that my parents taught me from day 1 that it was my character that determined my true beauty, and that I would not be allowed to get anything less than A's from school, because your brain is with you long after your exterior fades.

I abhor SP for how she has turned women into sexual objects who are worth nothing but a wink and librarian porn glasses.

With nothing to back up the attention she gets, she makes us all look like manipulative users, like her.

Some of us refused to skate on the gifts god gave us, and instead would like very much to be taken seriously as human beings with equal rights.

In fact, the right's obsession with her looks and the accusation that we're jealous is so sexist it proves my entire point.

I've never been jealous of a beautiful, smart woman. I have tons of friends who are drop dead gorgeous, smart as whips, and kind, honest souls. I admire them and am proud to be their friends.

They have never winked at me or my husband, and have never traded on their looks for substance. Nor have they lied about doing it all -- setting up an impossible and anti-feminist message. Nor do they let their husbands rule their jobs. Nor do they try to take away other women's rights.

See, for some of us, it's really about what we said it was about.

I wouldn't want anything of Sarah Palin's and her life as a third runner up in a state beauty contest is one I would find embarrassing, if I had not done anything else to be proud of.

The one thing I have to give her is her socialist agenda. She really did stick it to the oil companies with the tax and give it to the people. I find that hysterical.

If only she hadn't done that to win a popularity contest.

As far as her physical appearance, she's gotten a lot of help recently -- but before, she was a middle aged woman with a descending face and an ugly heart. I have no problem with the descending face- but the ugly heart colors her every move. Not very attractive.

They blow up journalists, don't they? McCain's "family" sure does.
I think the man's name was Bolles. His death was attributed to Murder Inc. Cindy's Daddy went to prison for the organization and they set him up in the distributing business.

Hey everyone,

Please consider writing to a few people and thanking them etc. I wrote Katie Couric and gave her support. I told her I had always been a fan of hers ( I do think she is so nice!) and asked her to please air any other Palin interviews. I also wrote Andrew Halcro and email and thanked him for speaking up about Sarah Palin and wished him luck in his senate race. I asked him to encourage other Alaskan Republicans and politicians to speak out. I asked him why don't they speak out about her. I told him why Sarah bothered me so much. To me, she represents everything wrong right now in our country The negativity, the anti - government rhetoric, the angry comments about President Obama. Even if she doesn't agree with him, there isn't one ounce of respect coming from her. You guys know!
David Frum also wrote a great article and I wrote and thanked him.

I know some of you are doing this too. I just wanted to let others know I think people appreciate it or I hope they do!

CNN is kind of roasting her now on TV. They are calling her book "gossipy" and new polls show only 28% of Americans think she is qualified to be president. 67% think Hilary Clinton is. My question is what is wrong with this 28%? It is very frightening to me. They are picking a candidate based on lies really. They think she is religious and anti-choice like them. Frightening. Are we afraid of her? YES, because she is not competent and she lies and she is not a leader!

I want to believe you are right on about the former staffers, or may they never work again plus lose all medical and benefits. I detest that loathsome idiot McCain after seeing him in Senate videos where he did his temper freak out on a woman who wanted to know about her POW loved one. He turned on his own MIA/POW brothers. What a creep. He treats women like old bags. Calling #2 wife a "c*nt." I was sick to see Nancy Reagan give into her party loyalty and support his farce. She hated him for how he treated #1 wife and children. She must detest him more for bringing us the Palin that says Ronald Reagan every other breath. Not that I mind Reagan getting the Palin curse. The only good to come from McCain's life is that he is a major part of exposing the GOP for what they have become. When his true to life legacy is written he will be special to making the Republicans as impotent as he is. They need a health care bill with Viagra for all but they cut women's rights. No choice for women, just old white dude rules. They can't sell their own bull so they use a first class liar and protect her no matter what. They feed and thrive on lies and screwing up the world for future generations.

Former staffers of GOP losers, GO BALLS AHEAD. Save you names and give us the truth. End your lives as lying scum and co-conspirators.

Anonymous said...

There's just no way she will run for the GOP nomination. She couldn't handle the pressure of trying to run this state with only a half million people in it. Many of which receive no newspapers or television broadcasts and many that receive them don't bother to read or watch. She was virtually unknown to most up here outside of Wasilla before the VP nod.

In July I started walking around with my "Dude where's my Governor" tshirt on up here, and for weeks people were asking me what that was about. They had no idea she had resigned.

When MSNBC went out to Diomede, to set up a live TV feed from the only spot on Alaskan soil you can actually see (another island) Russian soil, the Mayor wanted to know why they were there. He had to be informed by the reporter that SP had been tapped for VP.

I hate to say it, but I think it's pretty clear Alaska has the largest percentage of what they call "low information voters" and people who just plain don't give a damn of anywhere in the country. I experience this incredible lack of interest and lack of knowledge towards anything political from a large majority of Alaskans daily.

That won't be the case if she tries to spew her BS on a national level. The statement she made to Andrew Halcro on the campaign trail about how impressed she was that he knew all sorts of facts and figures, but none of that really matters, proves she believes everyone is really stupid. She used that to her advantage but that BS won't play on a national scale where people pay attention.

Stop worrying about these guys here. They have never been able to prove anything. They like to think they know what is the truth, but they dont.

There is no proof out there. It either doesn't exist or has been destroyed. And only a handful of people who will never tell really know what happended in that room.

Palin knows it, that is why she is so comfortable writing what she did in her book, on the record for all to see. She knows no matter how much fun the bloggers have with disecting her book, they will never be able to prove babygate. Never.

She is not worried about it and niether should you be. You will not convince these people, its futile to try. Just leve them to their nonsense. It makes them happy and fills thier days with something that makes them feel like they have a purpose. Why would want to take that from them. They will have it until the day they die, because they will never get what they seek.

Babygate will never be exposed no matter how many times they tease that it will. Let me repeat, they do not have proof or evidence at all. Hearsay and anonymous "sources" will not cut it. The people that know will never never never tell them.

So leave them alone, it keeps them busy with something useless, so they dont put their energy towards something that will actually produce a result.

Rest easy Jesse, and dont get your panties in wad. Babygate is never going to come out. Let them pretend they know what they are doing."""

Little ole' Katie Couric dominates her book... she still gets twitchy about it.. woooh! What a lady! She's my hero! She should be the person representing the U.S.

geeshas lewisas..
EVEN if her version is true

Once again, Palin manages to look pathetic no matter which way the story is spun

NOOO the real reason she didn't like the Katie interview was she thought she would get to ramble (with Katie in awe) about being a working mother.

Katie was interviewing a potential VP so could careless how Palin "mothers" and "works" at the same time

Palin couldn't resort to licking her slimy lips and showing a little pointy knee action to regain control of things

She was not in control of this interview.. SHE was the one suffering from low self esteem..

She is the epitome of why women have not been able to hold places in power for so long.. because they crumble and are too emotional.

I find Hillary a bit snarky for my tastes but at least the woman has some sort of backbone and sense of self confidence

Palin is a joke.. bring 'er down already! :D let all the many shoes in her skeleton filled closet drop already! :D
God help us all....

wv: redden :D .. Palin will be "red in the face" soon, I hope!

wv = my word verification for those that keep asking (took me forever to figure it out so don't feel bad)

"personally, I would choose life."

and you would FORCE others to "choose life" if you had the ability to do so.

how sick is it to force a woman to look at a child every day of her life and see her rapist? what a sick, sick woman.

anon @ 17:35 -

I agree. katie was very easy on her and it did seem that she was trying to help her. it infuriated me at the time, of course, because it was bs on katies part to be so "easy" with someone who could have potentially been the vp or p of the us. I was really pissed that katie wasn't asking her some tough questions.

amazing that sarah can't even see how easy katie was on her. she's so f-ing twisted.

"I really doubt his former staffers give a rat's patoot what their shriveled up old loser of an ex-candidate wants. He is the blight on their resume and his disastrous Veep pick is trying to make them look even worse."

what you say makes good sense - but politics is not about good sense.

when I first heard about palin slamming the mccain camp, I thought "great! now these people are going to tell what they know." but the more I thought about it, the more I realized that they won't. because it makes THEM look just as bad for trying to get this fraud elected. I think they will speak up in cases where there are emails to contradict what she's saying, but I don't think they will go beyond that. I hope I am wrong - they all need to play their hands right now, imo.

"My question is what is wrong with this 28%? It is very frightening to me. "

accept it; it will make things easier for you if you don't allow yourself to get frustrated about it. I say this as someone who used to make a living as an activist, and would get very depressed about the state of affairs here. 30% of the people in this country are worthless. it's scary, but just be grateful the number isn't higher.

yeah how's that for jaded? it helps me survive.

"Do not presume to know my true intentions. My reasons for being here are my own. And that time is coming to a close."

lemme guess.

researching a book? gonna fill it with all kinds of bs like sarah did? yeah I can just see that. won't be much "out-of-context-gotcha" there, huh? pffft.

jesse's book forward:

"I am writing this book because I believe that a pregnant woman's water can break, she can then get on a plane and fly from one end of the country to another, then drive another 1.5 hours before she gives birth. I know it's possible that after all this, she can deliver her 5th baby - 29.5 hours after her water breaks. and I don't like it when people claim that it can't be done."

bwaaaahhahaa, look forward to the leeching exhibition - I mean book!

re: Katie Couric Interviews
If all the things Spalin says about Katie were true, why did she have to come back 2-3 days later on FoxHole News with these pap, spoon-fed answers to softball questions that she easily could have given to Katie initially. The reason she couldn't was not because she was "flippant", but because she was vacuous and then vain.
She is a fraud and a quitter.

I'm thinking, if there ARE missing pages, and they ARE about Levi, somebody at Harper COllins has got themselves a nice little 401K plan there!

How much would THOSE be worth??
