Skip to comments.Breaking! Palin Power: Fresh Face Now More Popular Than Obama, McCain
Posted on 09/05/2008 8:14:14 AM PDT by ETL
A week ago, most Americans had never heard of Alaska Governor Sarah Palin. Now, following a Vice Presidential acceptance speech viewed live by more than 40 million people, Palin is viewed favorably by 58% of American voters. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 37% hold an unfavorable view of the self-described hockey mom.
The figures include 40% with a Very Favorable opinion of Palin and 18% with a Very Unfavorable view (full demographic crosstabs are available for Premium Members). Before her acceptance speech, Palin was viewed favorably by 52%. A week ago, 67% had never heard of her.
The new data also shows significant increases in the number who say McCain made the right choice and the number who say Palin is ready to be President. Generally, John McCains choice of Palin earns slightly better reviews than Barack Obamas choice of Joe Biden.
Perhaps most stunning is the fact that Palins favorable ratings are now a point higher than either man at the top of the Presidential tickets this year. As of Friday morning, Obama and McCain are each viewed favorably by 57% of voters. Biden is viewed favorably by 48%.
"By the mid-1970s the male band members were eligible to be drafted to Vietnam, so the band relocated to Vancouver, Canada.[No one was "drafted to Viet Nam". In fact not everyone drafted was drafted into the Army. And not everyone who was drafted went to Viet Nam. And not everyone who was drafted then went to Viet Nam saw combat.
Wiki just changed it again! I give up.
That 37% consists of people who see their own lives and beliefs being condemned by Sarah’s example.
Look up John 3:20.
Write to wiki and help them straighten this out. Apparently some others are doing it right now. It's changed several times in the past hour or so.
They have been around before Jesus and after Jesus.
Agreed, HOT is not a bad thing at all. Especially for a 44 yr. old CLASSY, SMART, HOT MAMA. She’s got the total package. ;) Just like me, LOL

The only thiings Obama had going for him was his good looks and oratorical ability.
Biden was a Senator when she was 8 years old!
---The very Obama definition of "Irrelevant"!
It works now, but goes to a different location that the original one. I believe someone corrected it. When I tried earlier, I got to Rasmussen, but to an error page. I then went to Drudge and got there. The link here was originally bad. It is awfully hard to just click on a link and have a problem between the3 keyboard and the chair.
I'm the resident expert on the ending of the draft since I was the last guy drafted in my hometown. I unenthusiastically entered the Army as a left-leaning anti-war but somewhat loyal citizen December 1st, 1971. Nixon suspended the draft on Dec 7th ("a day that will live in infamy," I thought). The draft was reactivated at the beginning of 1972, but very few numbers were called. Vietnam ground comabat ended in April 1972, and the draft was shelved that same month. Trained as a medic (I was a I-A-O objector and not required to bear arms), by the time I got out of Medics training, everybody was being sent to Germany, where forces had grown thin. Two years later, half the Army was painting rocks just to keep everybody busy and we were all offered early drops for the thinnest of excuses.
OWE! Thatll leave a mark. He must love you a lot if he accepts that wise crack.
Would it be too audacious for Sarah to challenge Obam to a head-to-head debate?
10,000?!?! That's amazing -- an astounding reaction.
George Stepanfetchitnopulous an unbiased ABC news reader just announced that Senator Biden was more popular and held in hirer esteem than Sara Palin.
Bob Beckel on Fox is warning that Palin has made a mistake attacking a media that was just trying to do their job.
Bob stated it was the medias right to know everything about Palin.
Get ready for the biased liberal media onslaught against Palin.
This could probably be broken down as:
You’re correct...but I have noticed that every single reporter/anchorman/woman on TV uses that term.
Solved it! (i think?)
Wiki's current article: "By the mid-1970s, some of the male band members who had been eligible to be drafted to Vietnam were avoiding living in the U.S., so the band relocated to Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada."
From Wiki's referenced source (jam.canoe): "With Nancy Wilson's addition following completion of College in 1974, the band was re-christened Heart and moved to Vancouver, British Columbia after manager Mike Fisher [or 'Flicker'?] found out he was to be drafted by the United States Army."
***Mike 'whoever' (Fisher or Flicker) apparently fled to Vancouver in 1971! Not "mid-seventies"...
***"After relocating to Vancouver, British Columbia in 1971, Mike designed and built Mushroom Studios, the premiere state-of-the-art studio in western Canada."
"There is a theory, but as yet no supporting evidence, that after brothers Mike and Roger Fisher and Steve Fossen formed 'The Army' in 1963 in Seattle, Mike Fisher moved to L.A. and changed his name to Mike Flicker. As the Zoo album is dated 1967, Fisher would have been aged 15 or younger when he did this."
"The Wilson sisters grew up in Southern California and Taiwan before their Marine Corps father retired to the Seattle suburbs. After attending college, they returned to Seattle with Nancy working as a folk singer and Ann joining a hitherto-all-male local group in 1970. This group had been formed in 1963 by Steve Fossen and Roger and Mike Fisher as 'Army'. They later changed their name to 'Heart' briefly, then became 'White Heart' (or perhaps 'White Hart'). When Ann joined, she became Mike Fisher's girlfriend. The group went under the name 'Hocus Pocus' in the early 70's before going back to 'White Heart', and then shortening that to "Heart" by the time Nancy joined in 1974. Nancy soon became involved with Fisher's brother, lead guitarist Roger. In 1974 the Heart lineup consisted of Ann, Nancy, Roger Fisher, Steve Fossen (bass), John Hannah (keyboards) and Brian Johnstone (drums).
The original band was called 'Army', (without the 'The'), and they played for several years in and around the Bothell, Washington area (north and east of Seattle)." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mike_Flicker#Early_career
Any volunteers to take up the fact searching on this?? I've got a freakin headache!
You can lump BLT in with your #2, "Hardcore Marxists".
The Real Story Behind Rev. Wright's Controversial Black Liberation Theology Doctrine
Monday , May 5, 2008
[special Friday night edition--original airdate May 2, 2008]
(some key excerpts)
["(Jose) Diaz-Balart is the son of Rafael Diaz-Balart y Guitierrez (a former Cuban politician). He has three bothers, Rafael Diaz-Balart (a banker), Mario Diaz-Balart (a US Congressman) and Lincoln Diaz-Balart (also a US Congressman). His aunt, Mirta Diaz-Balart, was Fidel Castro's first wife."
JOSE DIAZ-BALART, TELEMUNDO NETWORK: "Liberation theology in Nicaragua in the mid-1980's was a pro-Sandinista, pro-Marxist, anti-U.S., anti-Catholic Church movement. That's it. No ifs, ands, or buts. His church apparently supported, in the mid-'80s in Nicaragua, groups that supported the Sandinista dictatorships and that were opposed to the Contras whose reason for being was calling for elections. That's all I know. I was there.
I saw the churches in Nicaragua that he spoke of, and the churches were churches that talked about the need for violent revolution and I remember clearly one of the major churches in Managua where the Jesus Christ on the altar was not Jesus Christ, he was a Sandinista soldier, and the priests talked about the corruption of the West, talked about the need for revolution everywhere, and talked about 'the evil empire' which was the United States of America."
REV. BOB SCHENCK, NATIONAL CLERGY COUNCIL: "it's based in Marxism. At the core of his [Wright's] theology is really an anti-Christian understanding of God, and as part of a long history of individuals who actually advocate using violence in overthrowing those they perceive to be oppressing them, even acts of murder have been defended by followers of liberation theology. That's very, very dangerous."
SCHENCK: "I was actually the only person escorted to Dr. Wright. He asked to see me, and I simply welcomed him to Washington, and then I said Dr. Wright, I want to bring you a warning: your embrace of Marxist liberation theology. It is contrary to the Gospel, and you need, sir, to abandon it. And at that he dropped the handshake and made it clear that he was not in the mood to dialogue on that point."

Obama's Church: Gospel of Hate
Kathy Shaidle, FrontPageMag.com
Monday, April 07, 2008
In March of 2007, FOX News host Sean Hannity had engaged Obamas pastor in a heated interview about his Churchs teachings. For many viewers, the ensuing shouting match was their first exposure to "Black Liberation Theology"...
Like the pro-communist Liberation Theology that swept Central America in the 1980s and was repeatedly condemned by Pope John Paul II, Black Liberation Theology combines warmed-over 1960s vintage Marxism with carefully distorted biblical passages. However, in contrast to traditional Marxism, it emphasizes race rather than class. The Christian notion of "salvation" in the afterlife is superseded by "liberation" on earth, courtesy of the establishment of a socialist utopia.
From "45 Communist Goals":
#27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with "social" religion.
Catholics for Marx
By Fr. Robert Sirico
FrontPageMagazine.com | Thursday, June 03, 2004
In the days when the Superpowers were locked in a Cold War, Latin America seethed with revolution, and millions lived behind an iron curtain, a group of theologians concocted a novel idea within the history of Christianity. They proposed to combine the teachings of Jesus with the teachings of Marx as a way of justifying violent revolution to overthrow the economics of capitalism.
The Gospels were re-rendered not as doctrine impacting on the human soul but rather as windows into the historical dialectic of class struggle. These "liberation theologians" saw every biblical criticism of the rich as a mandate to expropriate the expropriating owners of capital, and every expression of compassion for the poor as a call for an uprising by the proletarian class of peasants and workers.
“Please, Please, Please! It is the Democrat party. NOT the democratic party. Democratic is an adjective that bears no relationship to the scoundrels in that political organ.”
I should have included this in my post. Democratic party is correct.
Obama 48% (49% on 9/04)
McCain 44% (42% on 9/04)
Ping to post #74.
McCain and the GOP better not overextend here
TWO months till the election play it cool
"We're gonna be like two little Fonzies here."
Excellent and scary breakdown of Ratbots.
“OWE! Thatll leave a mark. He must love you a lot if he accepts that wise crack.”
Actually, I feel the same way. And we’re both Goldwater and Reagan people. He jokes that he was probably the only school teacher on Long Island that voted for Goldwater and Reagan.
Wonder if there’s a story behind that photo...what was the photographer doing meanwhile? Besides getting that great shot.
LONG ISLAND!!! Isn’t that hostile/enemy territory??
Very brave people.
Reagan Independents, too!
Yes, there was. It turned out that that was actually Al Gore dressed up in a polar bear suit. He was trying to scare that guy in the SUV out of there so that he could fly away in his jumbo jet without anyone seeing him. However, unknown to Gore, there was a photographer with a long telephoto lens some distance away who capture the whole event.
“LONG ISLAND!!! Isnt that hostile/enemy territory??
Very brave people.”
Yes, it was. But he’s been in Florida more than 25 years now and is more Southern than Gen. Robert E. Lee and is a Confederate re-enactor.
Damn! Now I wish I had a subscription so that I could cancel it!

“Damn! Now I wish I had a subscription so that I could cancel it!”
LOL! Me too!
There’s a thread up telling everyone to go to your supermarket magazine rack, take the subscription cards out of the magazine (postage paid), fill them out...send them in then cancel.
Hee hee-—in Megyn’s interview, the editor sure stumbled on his words trying to explain the “lies.”
Here it is, in print:
Us Weekly Defends Controversial Cover
Oh, that is a great ideal...I’ll do that tonite! Lol!
lets hope that number goes to 50,000...but 10,000 will do in this economy......a 10,000 drop is very significant.
There are many reports of Palin gear flying off the shelves. I have heard two reports of eyeglass suppliers who cannot keep up with the demand for Palin style glasses. That is a true gauge of her popularity. I remember when JFK was elected, men quit using Brylcream, Vitalis and other hair oil “junk.” JFK went to the inauguration bear headed and the hat undustry tanked.
Obama is in deep doo-doo and he knows it.
With both conventions now over, who are you voting for?
A local paper printed the story and indentified her - the "public right to know." They were bankrupt within days - infuriated subscribers canceled by the hundreds.
