  • Palin's worst critics have no decency

    The Washington Examiner ^ | September 18, 2011 | Gregory Kane
    Desperate. That's what critics and detractors of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin are getting, and she hasn't even announced she's running for president yet. Can you believe these people are playing, of all things, the Glen Rice card? Here's how this bit of non-news got started. Author Joe McGinniss wrote a book entitled "The Rogue: Searching for the Real Sarah Palin." It's supposed to be an expose of the former Alaska governor and 2008 Republican vice presidential candidate. In the book, McGinniss claims that Palin had an affair with one of her husband's business partners. According to various news reports,...
  • Anyone but Bachmann

    Legal Insurrection ^ | August 14, 2011 | William Jacobson
    Michelle Bachmann and/or her senior staff have decided that the path to short-term success is to insult Palin and to present Bachmann as the only viable alternative to establishment Republicans. First it was Ed Rollins publicly insulting Palin almost at the very moment Bachmann announced her run; at the time I left open the possibility that Rollins had gone rogue, but Bachmann herself never made it right and Rollins still is the brains behind her campaign. Next was this report of what is going on in the run up to the Iowa straw poll: ”I like Sarah Palin a lot,”...
  • Palin-Bachmann Rancor Heats Up Below the Surface (Bachmann aides spread false rumors about Palin)

    DES MOINES, Iowa -- “I like Sarah Palin a lot,” Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann said at Thursday’s night’s Republican presidential debate. “We are very good friends.” Bachmann’s charitable words were the latest in a long line of glowing public comments that the two potential Republican rivals have showered upon each other since 2008. But a personal relationship between the conservative female leaders has, in fact, been nonexistent for the past 16 months, as aides from Bachmann’s camps have privately -- and sometimes publicly -- disparaged Palin to an extent that has caused growing exasperation in Palin world. That behind-the-scenes rancor...

    It’s common these days to hear media talking heads refer to Michele Bachmann as the “Tea Party favorite” in the upcoming 2012 GOP primary race. Unlike Governor Palin who has always stated that the Tea Party doesn’t need one specific leader, Bachmann has tried to cast herself into such a role. She created a “Tea Party Caucus” in congress and gave the “Tea Party response” following Obama’s State of the Union Address last January. The Tea Party is comprised mainly of independent-minded small government activists who are sick and tired of the way Washington is operating. These are people who...
  • The View - Bristol Palin (7-07-11)

    07/08/2011 12:56:22 PM PDT · by CondoleezzaProtege · 196 replies
    WHY THIS MATTERS POLITICALLY. There are two games Governor Palin is fighting: one is the battle to take control of her political narrative, the other is taking control of her PERSONAL narrative--and this includes everything surrounding her FAMILY. Having Bristol go on The View is BRILLIANT, and does more for raising Governor Palin's political profile and stature than one may think! With Bristol giving the whole scoop about the details surrounding her pregnancy, she takes the narrative of the "dirty details" and "dirty secrets" away from the mouths of Levi Johnston and rumor-makers in the press, who would try to...
  • Sarah Palin: Media Making Things Up: “Tears” and “Rages” During “The Undefeated”? Really?

    Face Book ^ | 7/6/11 | Sarah Palin
    Obviously we’ve seen our share of media lies, but the latest fabrications circulated take a big slice of the cake. The UK Daily Mail reports that I was “in tears” as Todd “rages over Hollywood stars ripping” me in the new film “The Undefeated.” Huh? Really? The beautiful town of Pella, Iowa, was flooded with an army of media covering the premiere of this film. You’d think someone would have caught those tears and rages on tape, right? Well, here’s a video of the remarks I made at the Pella Opera House right after viewing the film. The emotion clearly...
  • In Seeking Pardon For Swindler, Bachmann Convicts Herself of Illiteracy

    Michele Bachmann's efforts in 2007-8 to have Drug Dealer and Money Launderer Frank Vennes pardoned for his 1987 convictions have begun to receive some light scrutiny in the media. Some embarrassing details have emerged, including the fact that, while Bachmann was lobbying hard to secure a pardon for him from President Bush, Vennes himself was engaged in a brand new, massive $3.65 billion ponzi scheme, for which he was recently indicted by a Federal Grand Jury. Worse yet, Vennes and his family had donated money to Bachmann--a lot of money--in the 2006 and 2008 campaign cycles, $27,400 to be exact,...
  • Wonkette Ad Boycott Takes On Ad Server Network

    Brand Channel's Web Watch ^ | April 21, 2011 | Abe Sauer
    On Monday, the editor of left-leaning political satire site Wonkette wrote a piece titled "Greatest Living American: A Children’s Treasury of Trig Crap On His Birthday." The piece lampooned what's known as the "cult of Trig," the rabid fans of Sarah Palin's Down Syndrome youngest child, and accused Palin of using her now three-year-old son as a prop. Needless to say, many readers were offended by Jack Stuef's post and an online movement started to defund Wonkette by targeting its advertisers. The problem is that Wonkette has a lot of contextual ads, creating a headache for brands targeted in the...

    Conservatives 4 Palin ^ | April 21, 2011 | Stacy Drake
    As you all are probably aware by now, the leftist publication known as Wonkette attacked Trig Palin on his birthday. They didn’t stop there… They attacked Governor Palin, Todd Palin, and other members of the family by the end of the day. The “editor” released what he called an “apology,” but anyone with half a brain knows that it wasn’t. We’ll have full coverage tomorrow but for now, the governor sent this message to all of the people who stood up on Twitter today, in defense of the special needs community and basic human decency:

    This post is written in response to the piece written today by Nicole Coulter at UNFINISHED BUSINESS: WHY GOVERNOR PALIN WILL MOP THE FLOOR WITH THE GOP, THEN WAX OBAMA Nicole, whenever I think of the possibility of "regime change", I watch a documentary or movie on Adolf Hitler, and I especially focus on his mesmerizing speeches and speaking ability, the impact his demagoguery had in seducing the masses and how his words and views came to eventually represent the Zeitgeist of the German nation. And if anything, it has always brought home to me how difficult it...
  • Bill O’Reilly Cranky That Governor Palin Ended His Interruptions (Ted Baxter bruised ego)

    Conservatives 4 Palin ^ | Saturday March 12, 2011 | Stacy Drake
    This evening, Bill O’Reilly took a shot at Governor Palin on his show regarding the last interview he conducted with her. If you recall, the governor rightly put an end to O’Reilly’s annoying habit of interruption, by reminding him that he was indeed interrupting her. As you can imagine, Bill’s ego suffered a bit of a bruising from the governor’s action. On tonight’s episode of The O’Reilly Factor, Bill spoke with Chis Wallace to make himself feel better about it all. He compared his behavior as a media personality, with that of Chris Wallace, stating that it is mandatory for...
  • Palin vs. Christie: GOP rock-star feud

    The Hill ^ | 9 MAR 11 | Christian Heinze
    Republican Party favorites Chris Christie and Sarah Palin are engaged in a feud of rock-star proportions. The New Jersey governor and former Alaska governor are two of the best-known figures in the GOP, and both have been mentioned as possible 2012 presidential candidates. But neither seems to like the other very much. Their feud appears to date back to Christie’s 2009 gubernatorial campaign, when he declined to have Palin, a popular figure with the conservative Tea Party movement, campaign

    Kathy Griffin has never been one to shy away from controversy, especially controversy that involves Sarah Palin, even going as far as making weight jokes about Palin’s daughter, Bristol. It was also recently announced that Griffin would be playing a “a middle-aged ‘recent Tea Party candidate and home-schooler — a Sarah Palin type” on the hit show “Glee.” One can imagine that all this might be wearing on Palin and in an interview with Fox News’ Jeanine Pirro, Palin let lose saying: “You know Kathy Griffin can do anything to me or say about me, because you know, she’s kind...

    In front of an Alaskan backdrop of mountains and a lake, Sarah Palin had a busy, busy night on television Friday. She found time to tweak a fellow Republican, dismiss the president, and scold a top rated Fox News talk show host. Palin opened by questioning New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie's toughness and attacking President Barack Obama for naivete. After that, she preached about cutting various government programs to Bill O'Reilly before telling him not to interrupt her. All in a night's work. On America's Nightly Scoreboard, host David Asman informed Palin that Christie had told Fox Business News that...
