Sarah Palin's speech in Houston at the "Heroic Media" event: Abortion is an "essential issue" - Palingates had boots on the ground! - UPDATE


Exciting news every day. How do we keep up? Yesterday, Jeanne Devon from Mudflats had a great scoop and published an email exchange which spread across the media like wildfire. These events give me hope, because they prove that the media is actually willing to report critically "en masse" about Sarah, including some right-wing blogs, provided you hand them a piece of paper with the evidence written on it. I guess we need some more of those pieces of paper... ;-)

A noteworthy commentary about "emailgate" was written for example by Allahpundit on the right-wing blog "Hot Air." These kind of posts are a sign that some of the right-wing blogs are more and more willing to view the events surrounding Sarah Palin from a "factual" and "objective" perspective.

Allahpundit wrote:

"The big media takeaway, obviously, is Todd Palin allegedly demanding an endorsement from Joe Miller, which supposedly points to a Palin presidential run. The way the e-mail reads to me, though, is more as an accusation of ingratitude, not an expectation of official support. If you watch the clip below from September 19 (skip ahead to 8:45), all Wallace asked him is whether Palin’s qualified, not whether he’d support her. Miller’s response was to duck the question on grounds that he’s focused on the Senate race; he never says “I don’t know if she is” as claimed in the e-mail, but yeah, it’s odd that he wouldn’t respond with the perfunctory “sure, she’s qualified.”
Maybe that’s because he’s worried about alienating Palin-hating centrist Republicans whom he needs to peel away from Murkowski. Or maybe it’s because, as R.S. McCain suggests, there are pro-Huckabee staffers on Miller’s team whom he doesn’t want to antagonize.
Miller forwarded the alleged e-mail from Todd to a number of people (their addresses are blacked out), but it looks like they’re members of his staff — and presumably one of them is either the leaker or forwarded the e-mail on to someone who leaked it to the anti-Palin blogger. The question is … why? Even if there are Huckabee loyalists involved in the campaign who want to trip Palin up, why create a headache for Miller by doing this now? Wait until after election day."

So the old "circling the wagons - nothing to see here" strategy of the Palinbots, which C4P still executes on a daily basis, doesn't seem to work any more with some of the other right-wing blogs.

Maybe some of the other blogs have noticed that Sarah Palin never ever produces any positive news - but only one well deserved disaster after the other.

Why are Todd, Joe etc. writing such "incriminating" emails in the first place? Don't they know by now, after so many "email embarrassments" in the past, that this is not really a safe form of communication? Oops, what have I said? Todd, Sarah, please forget it immediately. Forgot it? Good.

It boggles the mind. These people are so unbelievably stupid that they deserve to be embarrassed.

And they most definitely have no place in the White House. Unless you really want the ""

My conclusion:

And now for something completely different.

Yesterday Sarah spoke at yet another anti-abortion event sponsored by Heroic Media in Houston, Texas.

We have already reported in great detail about Heroic Media, an organization which was founded by "swift-boater" Brian Follett.

Politico reported the following about the event yesterday in Houston:

Abortion is an "essential" issue for midterm election voters, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin declared Tuesday.

Addressing an anti-abortion rights group in Houston, Palin said that President Barack Obama has overseen "the biggest advance of the abortion industry in America" thanks to the health reform law, CNN reports.

"That's why it's essential that we use the 2010 midterms to elect a Congress that will make undoing the damage of Obamacare its first priority," Palin said.

Yep, holier-than-thou Sarah Palin is on the anti-abortion trail again. The "biggest advance of the abortion industry in America?" If you say so, Sarah...(yawn).

Anyway, we have something far more exciting.

Yesterday evening, our valued reader austintxx was surprised to find himself just a few minutes away from Sarah Palin's event in Houston. He had to collect his nephew in the evening at 8.00, but until then had some time to spare. In best Palingates tradition, he took the initiative and visited the gathering of the anti-abortion fans. Luckily for us, he afterwards presented a terrific report which would make Wonkette proud. Please don't take this report too seriously and complain about the language. The report by austintxx is a piece of "rough art" and should be viewed as such. ;-)

I have included some pictures in austintxx's report to illustrate some key points (please note that there are no actual pictures from the event in Texas).

Here is the report by austintxx:

Show me your nails, Mylady! this time nephew needs to be picked up.......I estimate there were only 200...maybe 250 people there. I left shaking my head laughing....she seemed jittery and it was the same old shit."


THANK YOU, austintxx!

By the way, CNN said that there were "more than 2500 people!" Who did the counting there, I wonder?

In contrast, Fox reported the number of 1200 people in the audience. According to Fox, this figure came from the organizer.

Another publication from Texas estimated that were about 1000 people in the audience (see the detailed report about the event.)

So what the heck is going on with CNN there? Their number is completely distorted!

Our own observer counted much less people than Fox and CNN, as mentioned above.

Fox published a video from this event:

Well, after so much fun, here is something else, unrelated - Joy Behar answers Christine O'Donnell:



Today on Hannity, Palin talked briefly about the leaked emails - clueless as always. Apparently, the publication of the emails was a "desperate" act to attack Joe Miller.

I don't even know where to start. Sarah, it was mainly about you and Todd, not about Joe. I am not a psychologist, but I know that something is seriously wrong with this woman. No ability for self-reflection, not even a touch of an intelligent, thoughtful answer. Always the same: THE EVILDOERS WANT TO ATTACK US - THAT'S WHAT IT'S ALL ABOUT.
