  • ‘I don’t loathe her as a person’: author of controversial Palin book

    Ever since the National Enquirer leaked salacious details from The Rogue: Searching for the Real Sarah Palin before the book was published, author Joe McGinniss has been embroiled in controversy. First, the tabloid revealed his book’s more lurid accusations against Ms. Palin: An alleged affair with her husband’s business partner, a pre-marital sexual encounter with former NBA player Glen Rice and snorting cocaine. Then The New York Times said Mr. McGinniss used his summer living next door to the Palins in Alaska to “chase caustic, unsubstantiated gossip.”
  • In GOP presidential race, voters have their own timetable

    If political events have proved anything so far this year, it is the need for patience and caution in projecting the future. Voters may have their own ideas. The loose-knit group of strategists, activists, talking heads and others known as the political community has been in a hurry all year to get the Republican presidential race shaped and charted. But that is work reserved to the voters. In due time, voters will clarify and resolve everything, but not this month or next.

    Blogging the Rambler ^ | October 1, 2011 | Charles Trentelman
    Just saw this story in the NYTimes speculating on whether Ms. Governor-of-Alaska-for-a-while Sarah Palin will announce she is running for president. I am fascinated that Utah’s Oct. 15 deadline for a list of potential candidates is the first hint that we’ll see, nation-wide, that she intends to toss her hat (expensive like last time?) into the ring.Other than that, who cares? All the other GOP candidates have flamed out — the latest Great Political Hope (a hint at the old “Great White Hope” construction, but Cain is black) Texas Gov. Perry is in the process of making a ass out...
  • It’s Really God’s Fault that Palin Hasn’t Decided (Buck-toothed Lesbian Blogger hates Sarah)

    Gosh darn it! How long does it take for God to make up his mind whether he wants Sarah to run for President? He’s had plenty of time. Sarah has talked with him often, so he’s had ample opportunity to bring up the subject. What’s wrong with him? Is He scared or intimidated by her? Is he afraid that Todd and his buddies will beat him up?From the minute the election of 2008 was over, God should have been considering all options. What was he thinking? Tim Pawlenty declared his intention to run in March 2011.That should have been a...

    Folks — check out what’s going on at today. Please keep screengrabbing the site throughout the day and send the JPEGs to us at I’m not on a computer that can screengrab right now, and I want to preserve the insanity at for posterity. Every hour, Redstate takes a punch at Palin supporters and I don’t want it disappeared down the memory hole. Erik Erikson, Redstate’s Editor in Chief, has an obsessive hatred of Governor Sarah Palin.  Erikson has become, essentially, the new mouthpiece of the Cocktail Party GOP establishment — what Governor Palin calls “the permanent...

    By Gary P Jackson. I find this truly and absolutely delicious. There have been a lot of presidential straw polls since silly season started, some going all the way back to a year ago this month. I’ve seen all kinds of results, but I’ve never seen such a blow-out victory for any candidate. The website Red State ran an interesting poll in September. They asked readers who their first choice was for the Republican nomination for President, then ask who would be second choice through fifth choice. The results for first choice: Sarah Palin 52.4% Herman Cain 21.4% Ron Paul...

    A Time for Choosing ^ | October 1, 2011 | Gary P Jackson
    By Gary P JacksonThe media and anti-Palin forces [many times one and the same] went nuts on Friday when Sarah Palin didn’t announce her candidacy for President of the United States. As the day went on, it became quite comical. Never mind that Sarah, who appeared Thursday evening on Fox Business News’s Freedom Watch, told the viewers she wouldn’t be announcing on Friday and was holding her cards close to the vest. I’m always amazed that people think Sarah should lay her cards on the table, spell out exactly what she intends to do to win the presidency. Would you...

    Joe McGinnis's new book "The Rogue: Searching for the Real Sarah Palin," hasn't won him any new friends in the Palin camp, and has likely created more than a few enemies among her supporters. The book takes a hard look at Palin and her husband Todd, digging into her upbringing, what he considers her "deep streak" of racism, alleged drug use, rumours of affairs and general all-around bad parenting.

    Is Sarah Palin preparing to declare her candidacy for president?  In what is sure to cause a lot of speculation, she has taken the opportunity in her last two interviews on Fox News to go after some of that network’s tactics and contributors. Sarah Palin expressed major displeasure at what she called a “quasi-reality-show” media game of building up candidates in order to tear them down.Among her examples, Sarah Palin cited the popularity Michele Bachmann experienced with the media immediately after winning the Ames Straw Poll in Iowa.  Bachmann is now down significantly in all the polls, especially since Rick...

    I believe that the ruling class politicians see Palin as a real threat to their status quo, and her postponement of announcing her candidacy as a hindrance to their stopping her. One way to force her hand earlier than she intends is to move up the primaries. Anybody else see a pattern here?

    Joe McGinniss wants to dig up dirt that will bury Palin’s political career. But his book is so full of salacious gossip that he ends up looking like the real creep.Sarah Palin, the Alaskan phenomenon whose nomination as Republican vice-presidential candidate in 2008 propelled her to global fame, has never had any qualms about expressing her distrust of the press, or the ‘lamestream media’, as she puts it. And indeed, as she committed media blunder upon media blunder – from falling for the stunt of a reporter pretending to be French president Nicolas Sarkozy to failing to name the newspapers...

    With all the speculation about possible late entrants into the Republican nomination race, including N.J. Gov. Chris Christie and Fox News analyst Sarah Palin, we've been asked a lot about the deadlines - how long can a potential candidate wait to be a real candidate?First, remember we still don't even know for sure when the primaries will be. There remains the chance that some states could move from February to January, and any filing deadlines for the ballots could conceivably move too. But it's more than just legal deadlines - a campaign apparatus has to be there, too.Late October appears...

    Last night I wrote my thoughts on just what might possibly be going on in the Palin camp (which we know is comprised of Sarah and Todd): Have you watched her interviews over the past few months? The commentary she uses to defer the “BIG question” is either, “still contemplating the huge life-changing decision” or more famously – “do I need a title to make a difference?” It seems to me these statements are more like her “I can’t announce right here and now” rebuttal – and it’s absolutely brilliant. She keeps the world guessing, gives the media the runaround,...

    WASHINGTON - Author Joe McGinniss says some of the people quoted by name in his controversial book on Sarah Palin have been threatened since its release last week."A couple of them have already gotten some blowback," McGinniss said Thursday in a telephone interview from Toronto, where he was in town promoting "The Rogue: Searching For The Real Sarah Palin.""One guy was even told he'd better watch his back because it's going to be a long winter; he might not see the end of it because he has such a big mouth." After months spent fending off similar threats when he...

    In case you were wondering, Sarah Palin has no plans to announce tomorrow whether she’ll run for president . “This is a serious decision, and I’ve engaged in serious deliberations. So within the next 24 hours don’t look for me to make a decision,” she said, according to excerpts of an interview on Fox Business Network set to air tonight.
  • Republicans say 'time is ticking' for Palin

    IOWA CITY -- Shuffling the 2012 Republican presidential primary and caucus calendar could put more pressure on former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin to announce whether she will launch a presidential bid. "Time is ticking," said blogger Shane Vander Hart, who operates the conservative political website Caffeinated Thoughts and braved torrential downpours earlier this month to hear Palin address a crowd of more than 2,000 in Indianola. Palin called September her "drop-dead timeline" during a visit to the Iowa State Fair, one day before the Aug. 13 Ames Straw Poll. That would make Friday the deadline. But she has since walked...

    COMMENTARY | Sarah Palin is threatening to sue Crown Publishing Group (CPG), publishers of Joe McGinniss's book titled "The Rogue: Searching for the Real Sarah Palin." Palin is threatening to sue due to what her lawyer calls "series of lies and rumors presented as fact" and for "knowingly publishing false statements."

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: This is fascinating.  I spoke earlier in the previous busy broadcast hour about Reagan's campaign for governor in California in 1966.  It is instructive because of this battle here between American conservatives and the Republican establishment, and believe me, they're two different things.  Now, George Will says there's no Republican establishment and there hasn't been since, what, 1966.  But there is.  The Republican establishment for all intents and purposes for the sake of our discussion here, is made up of what you would call RINOs.  The Republican establishment is northeastern Republican conservatives.  They're right on the fiscal...
