Sarah Palin Goes 'Full Grizzly' On Sen. Mark Begich
MSNBC ^ | 1:35 PM on 07/11/2013 | Emma Margolin

Posted on 07/11/2013 6:29:15 PM PDT by drewh

It goes without saying that you shouldn’t cross a grizzly. Sen. Mark Begich just learned that the hard way.

Sarah Palin—former Alaska governor, failed vice presidential candidate, and America’s most famous Mama Grizzly—launched a bit of cyberwarfare against Begich, the Democratic senator from her home state, in a series of vitriolic Facebook posts on Thursday.

The wrath of Palin was likely incurred Wednesday when Begich told Politico that the former governor had “quit on Alaska” when she resigned before completing her term. He also questioned whether she was still a resident of the state.

Palin said Tuesday that she was considering a run for Senate in 2014 in an effort to unseat Begich. And if the recent war of words between the hypothetical challengers is any indication, this matchup is bound to get ugly.

Typical MSNBUllshit responses from the few turds that watch. I thought that the kids in my High School had better retorts than these liberal twats. They comment on Sarah’s voice and looks? I bet they have wet dreams Of Pelosi, so obviously they are defficient.

I’m not going to MSNBC either to give them a single hit.

But, if Sarah runs for the Senate I’ll be one of her first contributors. Once in the primary timeframe followed again in the general.

Go Sarah-—you are a true American patriot!

Still can’t understand why Palin did not finish her term. Unfortunately it hurt her politically in Alaska. Very unfortunate since she is on the right side of virtually every issue and would be a tigress in the Senate. 2014 should be a good year for Republicans and may be her best chance to get elected.

she was spending almost her entire day fending off bs lawsuits from nutjobs. something like 24 different suits. she left office so the people weren’t paying for something they weren’t getting

financially it would have been better to stay in office... and no one would have said anything if she spent her day dealing with lawsuits.

which speaks volumes for her personal integrity

Because the Democrats were using the system to spend Alaskan taxpayer money to keep Palin under constant mortar fire to prevent her from doing her job, and to punish her for daring to be the UnPelosi.

How effective would you be at your job if someone who didn't like you got to use your company's funds to disrupt your workday and the company's operations?

The reasons are well known. It is way beyond a pity that she was forced by a pack of DNC directed and funded bastards to choose between bankrupting her family and remaining governor but I for one find it hard to say I'd not have done the same thing in that position.

Remember the 2010 midterm election landslide? That's why. Palin didn't "quit" anything. She changed the battleground from being trapped in a governor's house to the freedom to cover the entire country. Be glad she did what she did. It was brilliant.

Let me try to flesh it out more for you. Under Alaska law, a private citizen is allowed to make an ethics complaint against a public official. The public official then must use their own money to hire lawyers/investigators to defend themselves against the ethics charges. Once Palin became prominent, the bastard Democrats began filing frivolous ethics charges against, causing Palin to (a) incur a ton of legal fees and (b) have to spend a lot of time gathering documents and otherwise defending herself.

It's really quite a shame. If McCain hadn't selected her as his V.P. candidate, Palin could have worked away under the radar and no doubt built up an impressive record. After winning re-election in 2010, she could have started to lay a foundation for a campaign, and - key here - spent the proper amount of time necessary to become knowledgeable on federal/national issues. Under this scenario, she would/could have been our Reagan in 2012 and swept Obama out of office. Very sad.

Thank you for a clear explanation. Hope she does run and she is able through surrogates to explain that rational. Also it would serve her well politically if she can directly link the harassment to Democratic Party activists in Alaska and put them on the defensive.

In other words, the one thing that McCain did right...actually ended up screwing conservatives over.

Figures...

Pointing out his voting record is considered “vitriolic” at MSDNC.

Whatever...

“In Alaska, Palin just doesn’t enjoy the same popularity she once did. A February Public Policy Polling poll showed Palin at 59 percent disapproval and a mere 34 percent approval rate among Alaska voters. That same poll found that Begich would beat Palin by 16 points in a heads-up race. Republican internal polls this spring found similar favorable/unfavorable numbers among Republican voters in the state.”

There are two possibilities:

(1) You can't or won't read, or you can't understand the arithmetic involved, or,
(2) You are being dishonest.

Stupid or evil; one or the other.

I started watching your link, but I’m not sure what it has to do with the matters at hand. My point was that Palin is so unpopular in her home state, that rather than running for the Senate in what is certain to be an unsuccessful outcome, maybe she should not run and give someone with an actual chance the opportunity. Sorry if I didn’t understand you point, but I just couldn’t get through your link. Maybe you could summarize it for me instead. Thanks in advance :)

I’ve lived in Alaska over 20 years. Palin was the best Governor I’ve seen anywhere in my life. People remember how Palin cleaned things up, sent the crooked Repubs packing or off to the Big House. Alaskans remember when they were proud of state government and long for those days back in any area of Government, especially the Federal Government. I know all kinds of Alaskans that want Palin to run against Begich. Begich’s claim to fame was photo radar, and they passed a state law forever outlawing his big idear up here. Palin was ultra successful as Governor. Don’t be foolish enough to believe the media or polls; Palin is Gold in Alaska, no joke. Begich might be a good guy, never vote for gun control or UN control; but deep inside he is a lefty and is unelectable in Alaska today, after Obama. For some reason, Alaskans think Begich ain’t the brightest light bulb, he could never hang with Donny Young.

Pretty sure the state law allowing the governor to be sued personally doesn’t apply to federal Senators.

Ethics complaints. Not lawsuits.

Alaska had a law (ISTR Palin signed it when Gov) to allow citizens to file ethics complaints v.s. govt officials; said law passed in reaction to the very corruption Palin had rooted out as Gov.

One of the many frivolous complaints was filed in the name of a British soap opera character. The law was THAT easy to abuse. Several frivolous complaints were filed by one lefty blogger (can’t remember the name offhand) who looked like a cross between a warty-toad and the ugliest feminist you can imagine. She was a HUGE 0bowelmovement supporter.

There was no checks built in to the ethics complaint system so the left used it against Palin with impunity — all in the name of their jug-eared messiah.

Money to SarahPAC is used to fund various races around the country. Using it for a presidential run wouldn't have been allowed. Your money was well spent, witness Senator Cruz's victory for one.
