  • Could $5-Per-Gallon Gas Be What Palin Needs?

    As gasoline prices shot up for the 13th straight day on Monday to a new national average topping $3.50 and oil prices rose to over $106 a barrel, the cost of energy seemed poised once again to rise to the forefront of the political discourse just as the 2012 presidential campaign generates steam. Of all the prospective Republican candidates, none may have a better opportunity to benefit politically from a nominating cycle in which gas prices take center stage than former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin. Marginalized by critics in 2008 over her perceived parochialism and lack of foreign policy experience,...

    Former Alaska governor Sarah Palin came out strongly in favor of continued U.S. foreign aid to Israel in a Sunday interview with Judge Jeanine Pirro on Foxnews. "You know I'm sure that there's some waste and fraud in our foreign aid we need to find efficiencies and not give to any regime that would seek to harm Americans in any sense of the word 'harm,'" Palin said, "I don't support that kind of foreign aid at all. but when it comes to Israel - NO... I stand strong with Israel and unapologetically I say that America should keep this strong...

    Sarah Palin on Tuesday called the Obama administration’s decision not to defend the Defense of Marriage Act in court “appalling.” “I have always believed that marriage is between one man and one woman,” Palin said in a statement provided to Maggie Gallagher, the head of the National Organization for Marriage. “Like the majority of Americans, I support the Defense of Marriage Act and find it appalling that the Obama administration decided not to defend this federal law which was enacted with broad bipartisan support and signed into law by a Democrat president,” Palin said...

    Rove represents the worst of the elitist GOP establishment. Via NY Mag…One week before the 2010 midterm elections, Rove took aim at Sarah Palin, questioning the wisdom of her appearance on a reality show, Sarah Palin’s Alaska, if she really wanted to be taken seriously as a presidential candidate. Palin lacked the “gravitas” to be president, went a subhead in the U.K.’s Daily Telegraph. Rove later tried wriggling out of his comments, as well as observations he made in a German magazine that tea-partiers weren’t “sophisticated,” being unfamiliar, as Rove was, with intellectuals like the economist Friedrich August von Hayek....

    The Times of India ^ | February 28, 2011 | Chidanand Rajghatta
    America's political theater is spewing snickers and sarcasm over Sarah Palin's proposed trip to India next month amid uncertainty over whether she will run for the White House in 2012. While state governors bidding for Presidency typically make overseas trips to shore up their foreign policy credentials, Palin, ex-governor of Alaska and former vice-presidential candidate, is famously shy of foreign travel. She got a passport only in 2006, and before signing up with John McCain for the Republican ticket in 2008, she had travelled overseas only once, to visit US troops in the Middle East. Since then, she has gone...

    Let me start off by saying, I have no political power or have ever been in a position of the people. However, I am an American who can elect people into that power. And the greatest election of them all is the office of the President of the United States. So what do all voters ask themselves before voting for a Presidential candidate? Are they qualified to do the job. Now the main point I want to talk about is the upcoming 2012 presidential election. And specifically Sarah Palin. This election has already been widely publicized by the media. There’s...

    New York Magazine ^ | February 22, 2011
    There are a lot of interesting tidbits to be found in the tell-all penned by Frank Bailey, an aide to Sarah Palin while she was governor of Alaska, which draws on Bailey's firsthand experiences and Palin's own e-mails. Much of it confirms what we already know about Palin — namely, that she's obsessed with her portrayal in the media, with gossip about her family, and with slights from her enemies. But of all the book's revelations, one that might actually be relevant/entertaining going forward, if Palin runs for president, is the nasty e-mail she wrote about Newt Gingrich. Here's what...

    The Politico ^ | February 22, 2011 | Andy Barr
    Sarah Palin used to pronounce Mitt Romney's name "M-I-L-T." In one of the many embarrassing anecdotes about the former Alaska governor, former aide Frank Bailey writes in a leaked manuscript that Palin actually argued with some of her staffers about how to correctly pronounce Romney's name. During her own 2006 campaign for governor, when Romney was chairman of the Republican Governors Association, Bailey writes that Palin didn't seem to know much about the then-Massachusetts governor. “During the campaign for governor, when Romney was in the background of our Republican Governors’ mess, Sarah didn’t even have a clear idea who he...

    Dear Sarah, You and I first crossed paths on a fairly pleasant day in Ketchikan, Alaska, during the lonely part of your effort to unseat the deplorable Governor Frank Murkowski in 2006. Like you, I had a booth at the Ketchikan Blueberry Festival - and neither of us were very busy. You were the “outsider” tracking down the hometown boy, Murkowski, and I was the “radical” environmentalist undermining his work. The conservative town on Revillagigedo Island didn’t care much for either you or me at the time. I approached you on your stroll of solitude around the festival, and you...

    The author of the new book, "The Sarah Palin Rogue Revolution, Taking America By Storm", believes he has the answer. The book, which explores Palin's 2012 aspirations, debuted in the best sellers in Kindle Political and Elections categories. Tony Reynolds, the author, originally wrote the book specifically to be included in the Kindle singles program. A Kindle Single is a short book between 30 and 90 pages written about a specific subject and is very concise and to the point. "Kindle sent a call for authors to submit their work," Reynolds said. "I submitted this and even though it did...

    Leftists are generally happy to get a hold of so-called conservatives who are willing to bash the Right, but their favorite mouthpieces are the relatives of high-profile Republicans who are willing to go against the grain. A couple weeks ago, they paraded Ron Reagan Jr. around to suggest his father’s Alzheimer’s began in the Oval Office, and one of the Gipper’s other left-wing kids, Patti Davis, recently sat down for an interview with The Daily Beast’s Lloyd Grove, in which she tried to argue that Reagan wouldn’t be much of a Sarah Palin fan if he were alive today: "When...

    The Christian Science Monitor ^ | February 3, 2011 | Walter Rodgers
    Sarah Palin is like a good movie that you don’t want to end. To tea party supporters and millions of Republicans, she epitomizes Frank Capra’s drama “Mr. Smith Goes to Washington” – in which the Washington elite shun the hero, whose straight talk and rogue style win the hearts of ordinary Americans. To others, she calls to mind the 1963 comedy “It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World” – in which a pack of comedians pursue an elusive treasure that makes fools of them all. Not presidential material The mere mention of her name can trigger hysteria in polite company....

    When Sarah Palin gave her electrifying speech at the RNC convention in 2008, she stole the spotlight from Barack Obama, John McCain surged ahead in the polls and Team Obama panicked! The Democrat attack machine met behind closed doors and concluded that McCain wasn't their problem. It was Sarah Palin they must destroy. With the aid of the liberal media, they orchestrated the most vicious, unwarranted attack ever against a public servant. This current administration's relentless drive to socialism has driven our cherished republic to the brink of fiscal and moral bankruptcy. A free and prosperous future is under attack...

    The Tri-State Defender ^ | January 20, 2011 | George E. Hardin
    Managing the message you present and controlling your image is crucial for a person in politics. Sarah Palin is a sterling example of someone who is raising that strategy to unparalleled heights. She restricts her statements largely to social media and self-produced video clips. She has learned what Marshall McLuhan said—“the medium is the message”—and has mounted an approach that could wreak havoc on both the Democratic Party and President Barack Obama. Obama, by contrast, gracious as he is, seems to spend more time trying to cooperate with his opponents and win their support than promoting his own accomplishments. That...

    On Wednesday, controversial former Rep. Alan Grayson (D-Fla.) mocked former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, outlined death threats he and other Members received last year and detailed inflammatory rhetoric, asking his supporters to “stand against it.” “[T]here has been a stream of violence and threats of violence by the right wing against Democrats. [Rep. Gabrielle Giffords] warned against it, and then became a terrible victim of it. Palin has instigated it, and then tried to pretend that it doesn’t exist,” Grayson wrote in an e-mail to supporters. Grayson said it was Palin’s appearance on “The Sean Hannity Show,” where she complained...

    The Gloucester Times ^ | January 17, 2011 | Stuart Diamond
    Thinking there will be a moderation in the tone of political rhetoric in America after the tragedy in Arizona is wishful thinking. Instead, I believe there is about to be a huge intensification — like when a hurricane goes from Category 1 to Category 4 status on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale. Hurricanes strengthen as they pass over bodies of warm water. The swirling left-right word-war metastasizing into every hamlet, town and city across the USA is about to pass over a body of cold land — which will strengthen it to the 49th power. That's because I believe someone...

    Sarah announced on last night’s episode of Sarah Palin’s Alaska that she will make her decision to run — or not to run — for U.S. President on small-town Alaskan radio station WKHL! It’s no surprise Sarah Palin would want to make such a controversial announcement as to whether or not she’ll be running for president to the people in her home town of Wasilla, AK first. They are, after all, some of her biggest supporters! Plus, the politician and reality star has devoted a lot of time and energy to convincing the American public that she’s just a down-home...

    Yesterday, the Oregonian featured an editorial and excellent hit piece called, “ A prediction for 2012: Sarah Palin will toss her hat into the ring.” The article written by featured columnist, Todd Huffman, a Eugene, Oregon pediatrician was entertaining to say the least. Sadly for Dr. Huffman, virtually everything he wrote about Governor Palin cannot be factually proven. Huffman is quite the dilettante writing on a plethora of topics. When he veers to his obsession, the need to assassinate the character, background and education of Sara Palin perhaps his time would be better spent in his office taking care of...

    This year has been a banner year for Sarah Palin -- if her goal was to become rich and famous. The cash comes courtesy of a break-out reality show, "Sarah Palin's Alaska" (just try to turn it off), a best-selling book, a TV news gig, and a stage-mother cameo on "Dancing with the Stars."No wonder that for the third time in as many years, the Alaskan dynamo made it onto Barbara Walters' list of the year's most fascinating people. But if Palin wants to be not just rich and famous, but also president of the United States, 2010 might turn...
