Constitution Day Came and Went...No Sarah
Self | 9-17-11 | Self

Posted on 09/17/2011 5:21:28 PM PDT by CincyRichieRich

Constitution Day has come and gone. No sign of Sarah. Frustrated? Yep, I am. Dissappointed? Yep, I am. Do I have a clue what she'll do? Nope. I'm starting to doubt, though, that she'll run. I'm starting to think she's holding out for Perry's VP slot, but pounding on him may not sit well...but Bachman seems to be doing that well herself and deflecting blame. I don't know, I'm flustered a bit. Thanks for listening out there in Freepland. What say or predict you?

Must be time for you to pronounce me as banned or suspended then!

Someday I will learn how to get aholes like you to post my thoughts and pay my monthly bill!

Until then, I’m not done speaking for myself!

When was the last time PA voted for a Republican Presidential candidate? I do believe it was back in the 80s... If PA is going to be in play at all, it’s going to take someone a bit more centric than Palin or even Perry - just too many Democrats and moderates in that state.

He’s my long lost father’s great aunt’s great grandson, second cousin to my nephews niece, but not so close we couldn’t intermarry. I think.

First off, that poll about views is over a year old... How does it look today?

Second off, I think Newt Gingrich and I have a lot of similar views, too - much closer than Obama and me. However, I wouldn’t want Gingrich as President. Just because I hold views closer to him does not mean I think he’s the best person for the job...

Why in the world would she get in now? She saves money, makes money, lets others pound each other and not her, not waste her time with 8 people on stage, let others waste all their money, let things die down on books and movies against her. Let the undefeated come out on dvd. etc...

I wonder how many posters here realize that “The Undefeated” is not available for purchase until October 4. Do you think that fact could have anything at all to do with giving the people the chance to answer the question: Who Is Sarah Palin?

From: Norm Lenhart
Chief Druid, Cult of Palin

Re: Trolling and the futility of repeating ourselves

Fellow Cult members, True Believers and general Palin supporters...

As the end of Sarah Palin’s SELF ANNOUNCED timeframe comes closer, the Trollkind inhabiting Free Republic are coming out of the woodwork. This increases daily and aside from annoying the hell out of everyone, has resulted in a number of personal attacks on posters for the dread crime of supporting our choice of candidate. Allow me to get right to the point...

There is no point typing up book length answers to bring facts into the discussion. They are not interested. They will blow off your carefully researched data and opinions with one liners, diresion and mockery. As such, the only way to win the game is simply not to play.

Below you will find a number of cut and paste replies to most of the standard issue troll posts. Save your self hours of time best used to concentrate on working toward furthering Palin or any other candidate you believe in.

“She can’t win/She’s not running”
Answer - “Prove it” “That’s your opinion and you are welcome to it” “Can you send me the winning lotto numbers too?” “I’ll wait until her stated time-frame ends to decide for myself, thanks.”

“High Negatives”
Answer - “13 months to go. Call me back in about 12.” ‘Reagan and Clinton shared that problem. In both terms.’ “Don’t care what Liberals think”

“Divisive”
Answer - “If you’re a Democrat. Palin is following the Republican platform.”

“Self centered/serving/attention hound”
Answer - “Opinion, nothing more”

“Her supporters are nuts/Cultists/Palinistas and bad for her image”
Answer - “Opinion and nothing more.”

In fact, most troll blather should be answered with “Opinion and nothing more because most of their ‘facts’ are just that.

So Join me in an effort to save Jim’s bandwidth. It’s environmentally conscious and makes trolls ‘green’ as well since they won’t get the attention they crave. Lastly, when you encounter one, take a look at their posting history before you reply. You might just decide to save yourself some otherwise wasted time.

Feel free to copy and distribute to fellow “Cultists”

I'm sure the Lion appreciates your running interference for it, but nobody asked you. Lots of people in PA vote for the GOP candidate every time out. PA never votes 100% Democrat.

When was the last time NY 9th voted in a GOP Representative?

Blow it out your constipated grinkie, ya know-nothing fusslard panktune.

Pennsylvania is no lock to be a Republican win in 2012, just the opposite. Obama won even after he slimed us with no jobs, guns and religion crap. Here in PA we have to teach the GOP that we’re taking down all the RINOs. The GOP chairman, Rob Gleason, is a lifelong business ally of the late John Murtha and he helped a rich RINO beat a good Tea Party candidate and then rolled over for the Democrat heir of Murtha’s seat.
Rino Mike Fitzpatrick lost in 2008 then won in 2010 with Tea Party help. Fitzpatrick has voted for RINO Fred Upton (electrical corporations)to beat conservative Joe Barton (oil) for the Energy Committee. There’s more but the clincher for me was Fitzpatrick called for compromise in the debt-ceiling debate. We voted for Republicans, especially Tea Party candidates, to stop extending the debt ceilings, not allow Obama to use our money to give money to his Democrat friends.
If we play our cards right, we’ll win the Presidency, House and Senate. Sacrifice a few RINOs and tell the GOP we’re not voting for RINOs anymore.

Been reading some of the back and forth, and you are correct, the Trolls are insulting and annoying. Your suggested answers are fine, but don’t forget there is the option of not responding, or just reply ‘yes dear’.

Sarah told us in her book, she is not interested in being VP, it would be absolutely beneath her at this point.

I believe she is getting in absolutely, and it may not be in Sept.

I agree on ‘yes dear’ or with any other mocking reply. As long as ‘someone calls them on their BS every time, the rest of us can sit it out IMO as nothing further will be accomplished. But someone needs to make the point that their BS is Opinion/BS etc.

“Sarah will announce at 12:21pm on Monday, September 26, 2011”


Why that date? That is my birthday & that would be the best present ever. I think that just like Jesus says, only the Father knows the exact hour and time. He will tell Sarah it's time. (ha ha) For those who think we think too highly of Sarah. We know she is not perfect, but I don't know anyone who believes in God, country and following the constitution like Sarah. She cuts through the #@&% and speaks the truth. She's not beholden to anyone but God and country (and her family).

Like McCain, or maybe Romney, or maybe we can bring Bob Dole back from his retirement sleep...that would be a winner for sure!!!

OR, maybe we go with a true conservative,some one who’s views the American people side with by 52 percent versus Obama’s 40 percent...Sarah Palin. By the way, the last Republican to win PA was not a RINO, it was Ronald Reagan. Learn from history or you will forever be on the losing side.

Why in the world would she get in now? She saves money, makes money, lets others pound each other and not her, not waste her time with 8 people on stage, let others waste all their money...

I rather appreciate Theodore Roosevelt's 1913 response to this question:

THE MAN IN THE ARENA

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming...

By your rational any tactic used by the DNC/MSM should be cause for every Republican/Conservative to throw up their hands and surrender. I’m glad I never served under your command! I’ll follow a leader with grit to the Gates of Hell.....and Sarah has it in spades!

I hear the same, but when the subject of Palin comes up people I speak with just shrug their shoulders and say she's not presidential material (paraphrasing). And that includes the wishy-washy "independents" that will very likely make the difference next November.

What part of PA are you from?

Berks County.

If I had to gues I would say Sarah is more at ease with Greta than most anyone else that she lets interview her.

Last time she was on with her, about a week ago,she said that she still has not made up her mind.

That's good enough for me.
