  • Sarah Palin's PAC spent $1.4 million in 2015, gave just $23,500 to campaigns

    Ex-Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin launched her political action fund, Sarah PAC, in 2009 with the stated purpose "to help elect principled conservative leaders" across the country. But the latest Federal Election Commission filing indicates that money raised in small contributions by Sarah PAC is going to consultants, speech-writing services, direct-mail appeals, as well as stays by Palin in fancy hotels. Sarah PAC raised $950,000 in 2015, spent a total of $1.4 million, and donated just 23,500 to 45 campaigns. It also...

Then she went to a Trump rally the day of the election with tons of undecided voters and started attacking Congressman Steve King,...

    A group calling itself Anonymous Conservative hacked the 2016 Iowa Caucus website Monday, posting a manifesto on its front page. The cyberattack was in response to former Alaska governor and 2008 Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin's endorsement of GOP front-runner Donald Trump last week. "The recent endorsement of Donald Trump by Sarah Palin is the final straw for our organization, The Anonymous Conservative," read an announcement posted to the Iowa caucus website. "Every good Conservative knows that Sarah Palin is a national embarrassment and she represents everything that is wrong with America," read the statement, allegedly from the hacktivist...

    Four years ago, I called the GOP the Thelma and Louise Party because its primary voters were determined to nominate a presidential candidate who could not possibly win the general election. The weirdest thing about Romney’s doomed candidacy was the support he received from people like Ann Coulter, who had spent years vehemently denouncing such transparent RINOs. This year, Coulter supports another RINO who cannot win: Donald Trump. Now, Sarah Palin has endorsed this sure loser. Coulter and Palin have thus become the Thelma and Louise of the Republican Party. Will GOP voters let them drive their party off the...

Track spent a year in Iraq with the Army, and Palin says his problems with domestic violence exemplify what happens to soldiers who come back home with PTSD. And who does she blame for this? Yep, Obama. "My son, like so many others, they come back a bit different, they come back hardened," Palin said at a rally where she was supporting Donald Trump. She went on to whine...

The former Alaska governor touched on a possible return to politics during a wide-ranging interview on CBS's "Sunday Morning." "This will always be home," she said of Wasilla, Ala. "I would know that I could always come back here." "You're willing to run again?" the interviewer asked. "I'd be willing. That's a good way to put it," Palin said. The former Republican vice presidential nominee left the political scene after the GOP's White House defeat in 2008. Apart from endorsements here and there, her primary political...

    When The Post's front page declares: "Republicans are on the verge of ceasing to function as a national party," it's time to ask: How did this come to pass? You can choose from a litany of insurrections, government shutdowns and other self-inflicted wounds. But this year's carnival-like GOP presidential primary makes one event, in retrospect, stand out as a crucial turning point on the road to upheaval: the 2008 embrace of then-Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin to be a heartbeat from the presidency. Palin's blatant lack of competence and preparedness needs no belaboring. What's critical is that substantive, serious Republican leaders...

That moment for Sarah Palin was her Katie Couric interview in 2008 -- the hockey-mom-has-no-clothes revealing from which she, and the McCain campaign, never recovered. In Donald Trump's candidacy -- which The Huffington Post is appropriately covering in our Entertainment section -- the equivalent moment might have just happened.

The problem with this kind of rhetoric is that it corresponds to no crisis. There hasn't been any documented tendency for native-born Americans to be uncomfortable in English. Those born here to non-English speaking parents speak their...

She continues to tease about running, just as she has almost since the day she was defeated as the 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee.

Since late February, she’s stayed away from the eight other forums, events held almost weekly. And she’s not on the roster for the next meeting, Florida Gov.

They hate her more than any other conservative in this country, including George W. Bush and Limbaugh. Watching liberals fall to pieces over...

Right off the bat, they are accused of disliking America or Alaska or conservatives or mothers or the working class or even women in general and then they are informed that their hatred is showing. Next, their motives are questioned and their supposedly secret agenda is exposed for the world to see, for no right-thinking person could dislike Palin on the merits, natch. I hope you enjoy your elite cocktail parties, the apologists will...

    Sarah Palin saying “Of course” she's interested regarding running for the presidency in 2016 has people buzzing. During that interview, Palin said we need a candidate who is ready for Hillary. I agree. Romney would be Mr. Nice Guy/gentleman unwilling to attack the girl. As for Palin running, a woman wrote: “I have never given up on her (Sarah Palin). I am sooooooo hoping that she will be our spokesperson. My husband says the press and Obama have tainted her so much that it would be impossible for her to run. I say that 'with God, all things are...

Wallace had been asked to comment on conservative columnist Byron York's panning of Palin's speech as "long, rambling, and at times barely coherent." York's column also passed along criticism of the speech by a number of Iowa Republicans. Wallace said that it was interesting to see York come "full circle," since back in 2008 he had been a staunch...

    The dog-eating reference is a dig at the current inhabitant of the Oval Office, via his memoir "Dreams From My Father", notes Politico, in which President Obama discusses eating dog meat in Indonesia. Palin asks, "Did you go crazy when your heroic Man-of-Your-Lifetime, Barack Obama, revealed he actually enjoyed eating dog meat?"

    When I asked her for an example, she replied, Every morning, we hold a meeting about how to build that evenings broadcast. Weve been doing this for decades. Everybody talks about which stories were going to air, what the line-up looks like, and which reporters well have live in the field and which ones will be filing taped pieces. In the past, the left-wing bias was always left unspoken. People just got it, because they all thought the same. Once Obama pulled ahead of Hillary and certainly once he became president, she said, the bias came out of the closet....
  • David Brooks: Its Palin spasm over, GOP is a responsible party again

    The Fresno Bee ^ | November 9, 2014 | David Brooks, New York Times columnist
    Every party in opposition goes a little crazy. For Republicans in the early Obama era, insanity took the form of the Sarah Palin spasm. Veteran politicos took the former Alaska governor seriously as a national figure. Republican primary voters nominated the likes of Todd Akin, Christine O'Donnell and Sharron Angle. Glenn Beck seemed important enough to hold a big rally at the Lincoln Memorial. Fortunately, serious parties eventually pull back from the fever swamps. Thats whats happening to the Republican Party. It has re-established itself as the nations dominant governing party. Republicans now control 69 of 99 state legislative bodies....

    <p>If you havent already seen, Sarah Palinhas endorsedBill Walker and Byron Mallotts Independent-Democrat Unity ticket in the Alaska gubernatorial race over Republican incumbent Sean Parnell. She endorses the Independent-Democrat ticket over the man who was her own lieutenant governor.</p> <p>Because of this, as far as Republican politics are concerned, Im finished with Sarah Palin. I have nothing but respect for her has a wife, mother, and grandmother. I pray that, should I ever be faced with the prospect of having to raise a child with Down Syndrome or any other disability, I would have the wisdom to make the kind of decision she made with Trig and that I could bear that cross so gracefully. I must also add, in light of recent events, that I find the medias treatment of the family brawl despicable, andunlike Carroll Costello, I find assault no laughing matter.</p>
