Sarah Palin's safety tips and advice on how to clear your name

I finally got the chance to tackle my garden and lawn this evening! So, putting on the shorts and tank top to catch that too-brief northern summer sun and placing a giddy Trig in his toddler backpack for a lawn-mowing adventure, I looked up in surprise to see a “new neighbor” overlooking my property just a stone’s throw away. Needless to say, our outdoor adventure ended quickly after Todd went to introduce himself to the stranger who was peering in...

Sarah Palin's note from last year was packed with little messages:

  • She's sexy in her shorts and tank top.
  • Trig IS her son, he has mowing adventures with mom.
  • The new neighbour is a pervert.

Throwing stones is what they do best. Todd reiterated the lawn mowing performance in his statement, but omitted the bit about Trig in the backpack. I heard that Joe McGinniss confirmed to Gryphen that the mowing adventure did take place. It's quite obvious that the performance was put on for McGinniss's benefit.

Several websites give similar advice:

The power lawn mower is one of the most dangerous tools around the home. Each year, approximately 68,000 persons with injuries caused by power mowers were treated in emergency departments. More than 9,000 of the people hurt were younger than 18 years.

  • Make sure that sturdy shoes (not sandals or sneakers) are worn while mowing.
  • Prevent injuries from flying objects, such as stones or toys, by picking up objects from the lawn before mowing begins. Have anyone who uses a mower wear hearing and eye protection.
  • Make sure that children are indoors or at a safe distance well away from the area that you plan to mow.
  • Do not allow children to ride as passengers on ride-on mowers.

She may not care about her own safety, but...

And this bit made me laugh:

Sarah Palin doesn't like to be told what to do, be it regarding lawn mowing safety, wearing seat belts in a moving vehicle or using a cell phone while driving. Her children's safety is her own darned business and can't be mandated by anybody!

The sad part is that she doesn't have any common sense about the safety of her own children. Safety "mandations" by the government are directed at people like her. Somebody has to protect the children of irresponsible parents...


Another interesting thing about the Palins is that they seem reluctant to clear their names in a court of law. Branding people as perverts seems to be their preferred route. Todd Palin didn't deny any of the revelations in The Rogue or the National Enquirer, he just attacked McGinniss.

A Palin fan came up with this idea for a Todd Palin legal fund: People should send $25 to Sarah Pac so Todd could be bailed out after beating McGinniss to a pulp at one of his book signings.

Violence and innuendo seem to be much easier solutions than a lawsuit for libel, eh?

Perhaps we should wait for a while and see if they sue the author when The Rogue comes out next week. Oh, and let's keep an eye on any lawsuits against the National Enquirer.

During the three years people have been writing about Sarah Palin, they only had their lawyer send threatening letters on two occasions. One was about a looming investigation and the other about a possible impending divorce. Neither needed such strong arm tactics, as time would prove the bloggers in question were wrong.

None of the gates (including Babygate) have been challenged by the Palins in a court of law.

Interesting, n'est-ce pas?
