Flashback: Sarah Palin interesting "nuggets" from article 10/24/2006
ADN ^ | April 17, 2010

Posted on 04/17/2010 9:49:49 PM PDT by Bigtigermike

In 2003, she made a dramatic break with the party leadership, including Gov. Frank Murkowski, over ethics issues. The turn could have left Palin an exile from politics. Instead, it propelled her to a landslide victory over Murkowski. Now, as the Republican nominee up against "old guards" from both parties, Palin is again pitching "fresh ideas."

The main product Palin is selling this year, is Palin herself.

-snip-

It was a sharp contrast to her attitude toward the Daily News expressed in a 1993 letter, in which a seething young Wasilla city councilwoman called the paper "dangerously biased" for its coverage of Sen. George Jacko.

"How can you justify your restraint in slamming the Clintons, Kennedys, Marion Barrys and other philandering, chauvinistic left-wingers of the world?" Palin wrote at the time. "Your yellow, liberal rag is so obvious. I pray we will someday have a choice in newspapers again."

In early 2004, Palin announced she was weighing a challenge of Lisa Murkowski for the U.S. Senate. In the end, she announced she was endorsing Murkowski's Republican opponent. She said at the time that her then-14-year-old son had asked her not to run.None of these maverick positions were taken with the goal of setting up a run for governor, she says. When she appeared in ads, she said, she still didn't know whether she might run for lieutenant governor in 2006 or make a run for governor She said publicly that powers inside her own party wanted her "crucified." Her independence captured an insurgent public mood, and by summer she was leading in the polls.

-snip-

Still, no national consultants have been brought in to hone Palin's message

"It's the most remarkable campaign I've ever seen," said Babcock. "She's just running as Sarah Palin and talking about what comes up."

You want the support of the Republican party, you pay your dues, including supporting the one who brought you to national prominence, along with the current head of the RNC.

It's not difficult to understand, and although I don't personally like the fact she supports either, the only other way would be to split off from the Republican party and start a third party. Since that would result in several cycles of having the commies remain in power, I grudgingly support those two decisions.

Considering this, there is still no other viable candidate that I would consider supporting at this point in time for the 2012 race, but we are still two years out and she may not even decide to run.

I will also decline to support anyone who does not share her beliefs and standards as a whole.

LOL, she sounded like one of us, I am really glad that she worked on refining her style to win larger elections, she seems more Reagan like now.

“You want the support of the Republican party, you pay your dues, including supporting the one who brought you to national prominence, along with the current head of the RNC.”

I would have been both surprised and disappointed had she done anything differently than she has, from leaving office through today. And if she doesn’t run, I would support whoever she backed. Instead of squandering her career, she reloaded, instead of turning her back on a rabbi, she didn’t. She is taking a Reaganesque path to prominence and I applaud her. There has never been a more heavily scrutinized person in all of American politics, I think, and there is not one iota of betrayal to Conservatism anywhere in her, in thought, action or belief. Not of which I am aware and if there were, we would all know about it. Consider her backing McCain to be that proof, if you will, but I view it in the same light I did Trent Lott’s kindnesses to his mentor...plain old allegiance without thought or regard of consequence.

I guess she's become a bit more tactful in her rise to state and national prominence, but I love that she was writing this in a letter to the ADN back in 1993:

"How can you justify your restraint in slamming the Clintons, Kennedys, Marion Barrys and other philandering, chauvinistic left-wingers of the world?" Palin wrote at the time. "Your yellow, liberal rag is so obvious. I pray we will someday have a choice in newspapers again."

Behind closed doors, I think that Sarah and Todd Palin and even her parents, are all more conservative than we see, and I like it that way.

I want a conservative that can speak to the four corners of the nation’s voting masses, and win 51% of their vote.

Our best Presidents - and you fill in the blank - were great because of who they were, not because of how many facts they could regurgitate. Character, good instincts, guts, charisma, the ability to inspire and bring out the best in others - these are the qualities we need in our next President, and Sarah Palin has them all.

I love how she just let it all loose and told off those bastards. I absolutely HATE the ADN..its such a pathetic sack of garbage paper. I had no clue who they were til Sarah was announced as McCain’s VP nominee, so I went online to try to find some info on her, to find out what she is all about, I typed in “Alaska news” and here pops the ADN, so I go there, thinking “Well, she has huge support in Alaska, let’s check out this site” and the ADN was just so full of hate about her and I was like damn, what kind of crap site is this..never went there again

Her independence captured an insurgent public mood, and by summer she was leading in the polls.

Having lived through both Bushes and a part of the Obama monstrosity, I can't tell you just how refreshing an independent would be about now. By cutting ties with all things RINO, Sarah's ship would sail unmatched and unbeaten.

Al Gore and John Kerry, had they won, would have taken America to new lows without a doubt. They'd have dismantled her piece by piece.

Mr. Obama, cool as an iceberg, rips into the hull of America and we're not supposed to care? In my opinion these communists should have been more patient. 70-80 years may not have been long enough to spring Obama on us. I gotta ask, "What's the hurry?"

Could Mr. Cool have in store for us what lay ahead for passengers of the Titanic? 50% survival may sound like good odds to some, but explain that to the other 50%. And, just how like Lincoln might this president (cough,cough) be?

This tells you about why she do things that may scratch the heads, the “conventional wisdom” of pundits and analysis....of course she is going to upgrade to a larger scale if she runs for the President but very interesting indeed.

You just said it best. The part about 'inspiring to bring out the best in others' carries so much weight it defies those weak of mind. This quality alone puts Sarah far ahead of the competition and in direct oppostition to the current White House occupant- it should scare some people.

I get goosebumps when I think of the shivers she sends up the spines of those who plot to destroy America. Who ever succeeds Hobama will have the very difficult task of re-building a country in very bad shape given the reckless and rapid deployment of his agenda. Charisma will be a necessity to say the least.

Palin’s greatest strength (to her supporters) and her greatest weakness (to her detractors) is that she doggedly and tenaciously insists on being Sarah Palin from Wasilla, Alaska.

That’s good enough for me.

It’s not good enough for others, and I’m OK with that, too.

I recall a saying I often heard in my younger days, and don’t hear very much any more: “It’s a free country.”

Are we? Are we still a free country? Are we, really?

We’ve got one last chance to save the Republic: November, 2010. Are you doing enough? Can you do more?

I'm not joking about Palin either. I've watched her since early 90's; honest & high class.

There's so much that goes on behind the scenes in politics. When you start hearing the stories and then watch how Palin deals with what is going on; you can't help but thinking: "Hey you can trust Palin, and I want her running the show, she's making the right decisions". That's the reason why so many Alaskans liked her and why her ratings were off the chart.

Palin accomplished way more here in Ak than the last few governors even attempted; she addressed issues that most politicals wouldn't touch with a 10 foot pole, and went against the Repubs when they were wrong. The kind of problem solver we need to turn our country around.

Then you see other sides of Palin too. Last Spring at Ice out, we had a big flood. Washed away 1/3 of the community, road, tele poles, ect. Palin flew up, no film crew taking pictures for election campaign; walked around the place talking to everybody. Then she rode a 4 wheeler out this mud bog trail (our road was washed out) to see the Indians out the village. Now I once saw old Phony Tony Knowles heli into an Indian village for 1/2 hour after a 7.9 shaker. Took pictures with his Arm around Grandma, never walked 50 feet from where he landed. Palin is the only Gov I have ever seen on an ATV up here.

I just wish she was still our Governor.

All I know is what I’ve read about her, and the speeches she’s given, both on TV and one (a Right To Life event), in person.

I love her. Period. Does she have some points that we’d disagree with? Yup. But I love this woman. Love the spunk, love the attitude. Love the family. Wish I had half their work ethic.

She seems like Real People. While I sympathize with your wish to still have her as governor. would you consider sharing her with the rest of the U.S.? Say, in 2012 or 2016? We’d only want her for 8 years or so…

Thanks for the ping, Onyx. I really enjoyed the article and the comments by Eska. (I must say that I wish she had taken out Lisa Murkowski in 2004, then beaten her old man in 2006; That way she could have appointed a conservative successor and retired the Murkowskis from politics.)

SP is an insurgent. She doesn’t need the Establishment nor does she want them. I saw an article in Politico touting (don’t laugh) Haley Barbour, and Fred Malek, the genius whom managed the 37% 1992 Bush debacle and who opined that SP is not doing the right things to prepare to run (whatever that means), said Barbour would be at the head of the pack. I really can’t wait for 2012, because I want to watch them weep and scurry around and then come looking for jobs in the Palin administration. I hope she boots the lot of them into the Potomac.

Ya know, I honestly wonder if any of the other Repub candidates have the guts to make the hard choices our Country is facing; once they get in.

I have watched Palin in action and no joke; she will make those hard political decisions; probably what I like the best about her and also her down to earth common sense approach to problem solving.

Boy it grates me to no end to see what the press & left has tried to do to her. I hold some solace in the fact that America is still seeing the truth.

If you don’t mind, I am going to start pinging you to several articles about her, because your first person knowledge can only be called a blessing. I don’t want you to feel obligated to reply to every ping, or even to half of them, -— just when you feel like it. I treasure your comments and I know that all of Sarah’s supporters will too.

I share your outrage at the lame stream media and the democrats for their unconscionable treatment of her and both continue the assualt becuase they know she’s the greatest threat to the Marxist-in-Chief. I pray for our Sarah, her family and for her safety.

I take solace knowing that she attracts crowds like no other and in cities throughout the nation. On Friday for example, she spoke to 17,000 in Lousiville, Kentucky and the photos showed the crowd was primarily women! Of course, the lying news media keeps telling us that women don’t like her. In Minnesota, she and Michele Bachman had crowds of 11,000 in the afternoon (women) and the same number later in the evening when Sean Hannity hosted his TV show before a live audience.

Barbour is establishment to the core. There is no way he would make the choices that must be made to restore this country. He is in no sense her equal. In fact, none of them are.

I think that it is her destiny to be President. God raised up Reagan, John Paul II and Lech Walesa (at precisely the right time) to overturn the Evil Empire, and He created the conditions in which it could happen.

In a very similar way, I believe that Sarah Palin is destined for great things as well, things as much spiritual as temporal. Esther is the Old Testament prefigurement for Sarah Palin. There are New Testament and modern historical and mystical salients as well that suggest why she is going to win.

I love Sarah because she is a fighter. Most people would be institutionalized if they had to endure the smears and attacks that she has endured. Yet the harder they try to attack her the stronger she pushes back with the truth. I Know where she stands on all the issues and I agree with her on almost everything. Plus she is the most vetted candidate we have ever produced. I don't like that she is helping McCain, but I understand her reasons.

The 2012 election might seem far away, but we need anyone who is thinking of running to come forward soon and throw their hat in the ring. They will also need to be vetted as thoroughly as Sarah, because they are going to be attacked like she was unless they are a mushy rino. It takes a hell of a lot more than a few lame state run media debates to figure out what the candidates stand for. In fact I would like to see the GOP set up their own debates and leave the SRM out of the loop.

I will not vote for any of the 2008 GOP candidates. They were awful, and about as exciting as Alan Greenspan. Sarah was the only bright light that came out of the debacle.

Right, and in Boston she had a great line about obama’s administration being ‘all Alinsky all of the time’ - I don’t have the exact quote.

""How can you justify your restraint in slamming the Clintons, Kennedys, Marion Barrys and other philandering, chauvinistic left-wingers of the world?" Palin wrote at the time. "Your yellow, liberal rag is so obvious. I pray we will someday have a choice in newspapers again."

Gawdddddd I love that woman.
