DIRTY TOOLS (MoveOn offers $5000 bounty for dirt on Palin's husband)
American Spectator ^ | Washington Prowler

DIRTY TOOLS

As Obama operatives scour records in Alaska for dirt on Gov. Sarah Palin, they are also seeking embarrassing materials about her husband. And it isn't just the Obama campaign. Several left-wing groups with ties to MoveOn.org have used their network to offer as to $5,000 for damaging employment or personal information about him.

Meanwhile, the Obama campaign has asked the DNC to coordinate surrogates that appear on camera to attack Gov. Palin. "Last Friday, the Democrat women they put all looked old and tired, nothing like what folks were seeing from Palin," says an Obama media adviser. "It was like, 'we don't have any good-looking younger representatives to put up?'"

GLOVES OFF
Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney may be putting on a brave face for the cameras after losing out to Gov. Sarah Palin for the veepship, but his ever-loyal cadre of aides and consultants and conservative media types continue to work for him.

Almost every critical remark made about Palin on a recent briefing call about her selection came from political consultants with ties to Romney. Those comments were planted, says one, because they knew that reporters would be on the call.

PRACTICE AND POLISH
Sen. Barack Obama’s pitch perfect response regarding the announcement of an impending birth in the Palin family (”my mother had me when she was 18”) was not without a series of edits and rehearsals, according to some Obama insiders.

“For tough questions we know he will get to questions we plant with reporters that we want asked, [senior campaign staff] will rehearse [Obama’s] answer with him.”

The goal: to get his inflection and tone, as well as the content, just right.

“After he flubbed the hypothetical question about his own daughter’s pregnancy, the campaign has worked with him to avoid what appear to be insensitive or unthoughtful answers,” says an Obama Senate staffer.

This is ALL coming about because the Radical leftists KNOW that McCain-Palin is an unbeatable combination that:

1) UNITES Republicans behind a ticket most can support.

2) Is attractive to a LARGE BLOC of Democrat voters that The Obama fanatics have told to go f__k themselves.

3) has the potential to be a SIXTEEN YEAR winning combination, that destroys any hopes the radical left has of regaining power, IN THIER LIFETIMES...

Let’s send the story of how she knew her baby had Down-syndrome and still decided to not kill him. The Libs will definitely not like that one and will use that story in an off beat commercial.

I’m serious! Easy way to cash out on Moveon.org Libs.

For crying out loud. This goes to show you how vain the Left really is. I have to admit Governor Palin is a "looker" (don't tell my wife I said that) but what happened to putting someone up that actually represents the "people"?

As one of rock-and-roll bands that are my "guilty pleasures" would
term this sort of "investigation"...

Dirty Deeds...and they're done dirt cheap!

I'm suprised that the "sophisticates" of MoveOn.Org aren't
offering a 5,000 EUROs reward!

Maybe MoveOn.Org are just a bunch of nationalistic chauvanists
that prefer the US Dollar as their tool for buying the destruction
of that evil country...The United States of America.

For all their cries of how greedy Republicans are, am I the only to notice everything about these moonbats involves money?

The attacks against the Palin family are unprecedented in my lifetime.

I know we have freedoms in this country, but aren’t they taking it a bit too far?

It could be great if people in Alaska could flood them with false “tips” easily refuted.... discredit the MoveOn.puke leftists once and for all..... but OTOH that would be dangerous b/c the MSM would run with the false items and never correct or minutely correct their misinformation..... and the first impression is the strongest in the public mind.

What a coincidence. George Soros gave $350,000 to the American Library Association to supposedly advance the interests of public library patron "privacy." Yet Governor Palin's privacy may have gone by the wayside when a library director (no connection to the ALA known to me) hinted Palin was interested in censorship during a private conversation.

I remember once seeing an album titled “Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap.” And speaking of music I googled the lyrics to “Head Games” the other night, thinking about the Demobama gang. The good news is, he won’t have a lot of really smart people working for him. Too insecure...

***”For tough questions we know he will get to questions we plant with reporters that we want asked, [senior campaign staff] will rehearse [Obama’s] answer with him.”***

Shades of Hitlery’s “listening tour” when she was running for U.S. senator. You couldn’t ask a question unless you pre-submitted it and it was OK’d.

And Obama Hussein obviously can’t handle the questions w/o coaching from his campaign staff. What would he do if, as president, he had one-on-one talks with the heads of foreign governments?

Well, they’ve been doing odious stuff going back 200 years. But this also demonstrates why so many of our best citizens that might consider public service don’t bother anymore, especially when they do a media anal probe not just of you, but a gynecological probe of your teenage daughters.

Shame on the Mitt Bots ( plants from the DNC ) for trying to smear Sarah, and trying to get this sleazy creep ( Mitt Romney ) elected.
Mitt Bots are a bunch of sleazy bigoted hypocrites.... you could not fool us with your lies and phony conservative candidate...

A list of hope and change offered by the left.

Feeling hope that Hurricane Gustav would do more damage to ruin the RNC convention.

Changing the topic from the political candidates and instead focusing on attacking their teenage daughter and disabled son.

Of course, back in the 19th century, you could still challenge gentlemen to duels... IF they were gentlemen. Most rodents today aren’t, and a proper thrashing with a gutta-percha cane, reserved exclusively for the low-class trash that they are, would be well-deserved.

I remember once seeing an album titled “Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap.”

Interesting sidebar:
Last week there was an article in The Wall Street Journal about
some major bands NOT signing up with "iTunes" as they weren't
making much money from royalties from iTune downloads.

The article had a chart of how some major bands have done in this
"brave new world" of music distribution

At the head of the chart were The Beatles as the band that sold
the most "album equivalents" during 2006-2008.
Even though they've never made a deal with iTunes.

Number Two? (and never has inked a deal with iTunes)
AC/DC.
The article said that AC/DC reliably sells about a MILLION albums YEAR after YEAR.

I have to admit I wasn't totally suprised by this...as there has
been a rumor that the lead guitarist has made a killing over the
years playing the markets.
So it's not so suprising that AC/DC has never allowed themselves
to sign with iTunes and lessen their yearly profit.

You should read this ... some interesting stuff about the mudslinging of the 1800's.

19th Century Political Campaigns

1828

Opponents of Andrew Jackson, for example, accused him of murder, while Old Hickory's men whispered that his rival John Quincy Adams had been, while U.S. minister to Russia, a pimp for the tsar.

1876

Democrats focused on the scandals of the outgoing Grant administration, painting all Republicans as crooks and calling Grant "the Mephistopheles [devil] of American politics."

FoxNews ran some limited analysis. Soros’ money and bribes are notoriously hard to trace.

Convicted swindler Soros recently bought $811 million worth of Petrobras (the Brazilian Oil Company) which is busy developing and drilling in newly discovered petroleum reserves. At the same time, the democrats on Soros’ payroll are sabotaging US drilling and energy production.

Thanks!

During the nation's first contested presidential election in 1796, supporters of Vice President John Adams charged his challenger, Secretary of State Thomas Jefferson, with atheism, sexual improprieties, and dangerous revolutionary intentions. For their part, Jefferson backers accused Adams of plotting to establish a monarchy, crown himself king, and ally the country with its foe, Great Britain.

LOL! What a start!
