  • WaPo's Colbert King: Obama is a better father than Sarah Palin is

    The Charleston Daily Mail ^ | June 20, 2010 | Don Surber
    From Colbert King of the Washington Post: “Family, marriage and the contribution of fathers come together as topics for reflection on Fathers Day. So I’d like to know why Barack Obama, a husband and a father in a family structure that encompasses bonds deemed essential to our society, is constantly and savagely attacked by conservative leaders whose personal circumstances undermine the family values they espouse?” 1. His support of late-term abortion. 2. Being part of a church that preached racial division and a contempt for America. The Reverend Jeremiah Wright: “The government gives them the drugs, builds bigger prisons, passes...

    What does Tea Party rabble-rouser Sarah Palin have in common with actor Neil Patrick Harris and "CSI" creator Jerry Bruckheimer? The three are key figures on TV Guide Magazine's first-ever "Power List." A diverse rundown of TV icons who prompted the biggest water cooler convos, heartiest laughs or just out-and-out tugged at the fabric of American culture in 2010. Palin got a nod through making major noise on TV with her turn as a Fox News Channel contributor and star of TLC's upcoming series "Sarah Palin's Alaska." When asked if she will commit to a full-time TV role if she...

    Sarah Palin 2012? The pragmatic Palin picks show political acumen on her part and have raised questions about her commitment to the Tea Party movement, whether she’s moving toward the political establishment and whether she’s planning a run for the presidency in 2012. I’ve always said, don’t underestimate Palin Power. Read about it below and see photos and a video. The Super-Tuesday primaries were last Tuesday and the winner was …. Sarah Palin. It seems that the power of a Palin endorsement was front and center regardless of who won in any individual campaign. Her endorsements brought controversy within her...

    If there is any politician in America who has the “Reaganisque” charisma, it is undoubtedly Sarah Palin. In the American political landscape of the current decade, there is no other politician who has the same appeal as Ronald Reagan; there is no other politician who agrees in principle with Ronald Reagan much more than Sarah Palin does. Conservatives in America are hailing Sarah Palin as the “Reagan in a skirt”. Conservatives in America voice it day and night that it took a weak and incompetent President like Jimmy Carter to create the most popular Conservative hero Ronald Reagan. And they...

    Photoshop is a nifty little tool. With the click of a mouse you can retouch a blemish or saw off a good chunk of someone’s hip bone. For the cover of their June 21 issue, the design team at Newsweek booted up the program to stick a shiny gold halo around Sarah Palin’s head. Below the heavenly photo of the former Governor, just underneath her prayer-clasped hands, sits a message scrawled across the page in Old English font: “Saint Sarah.” The cover image is just the gimmicky precursor to an accompanying feature that goes even further with the Christian allusion,...

    The Jamestown Sun ^ | June 12, 2010 | Steven and Cokie Roberts,
    PAWLEYS ISLAND, S.C. — Is this the year of the Mama Grizzlies? The answer is a clear, resounding maybe. Sarah Palin coined the phrase to describe an “emerging, conservative feminist identity” among Republican women running for higher office. Several female candidates who received her endorsement — or fit her definition — scored impressive victories in primary elections last Tuesday. Other Mama Grizzlies won tough primaries earlier this year or are running well in states that have yet to vote. Without a doubt, Republican women are more energized and enthusiastic than their Democratic counterparts this year, and Palin has a lot...

    When Sarah Palin, in a rambling lakeside announcement last July in Wasilla, said she was quitting as governor of Alaska because of the abuse she and her family were taking from petty politicians and a feral press, she was written off as dead by the pundits. "A quitter, can't take the heat," was the Beltway consensus. Yet, it seems that was no more the end of Sarah than it was the end of Richard Nixon when, after losing to Gov. Pat Brown in California in 1962, he spat at the press: "Just think how much you're going to be missing....

    Sarah Palin had a good night Tuesday, with three of the four candidates she had endorsed – including California’s Carly Fiorina and South Carolina’s Nikki Haley – either winning their primaries or making a runoff. But the effectiveness of such endorsements is up for debate. The endorsement game is in full swing, and politicians are happy to receive credit when someone they publicly back goes on to win – especially if that person can be useful, say, in a future presidential campaign. Former Alaska Governor Palin’s late endorsement of Terry Branstad for governor of Iowa puts her in his good...

    Sarah Palin had a pretty good Super Tuesday. Three of the four candidates she endorsed won, bringing her record in tightly contested races to 8-3 overall this midterm election year. Earlier in the day, TIME asked Palin how she makes her endorsement decisions. "Oftentimes I'm looking at the candidate who shares the circumstances in which I've been: underfunded, up against the machine, no big endorsements, running a grassroots campaign with the help of volunteer friends and family," Palin told TIME. "When I see that, and can feel the momentum they can create with their passion in spite of greater challenges...

    Sarah Palin's effort to shape the 2010 political landscape got a boost Tuesday when three candidates she supported prevailed in their contested primaries. But the former Alaska governor's impact on races remains a matter for debate. "I think any credit given to me is way overblown because no one individual can tip it one way or another for a candidate," Ms. Palin told Fox News on Wednesday, when asked if her nod helped tip the scales in favor of women on the ballot Tuesday, Carly Fiorina in California and Nikki Haley in South Carolina. She also endorsed Terry Branstad, who...

    Carly Fiorina wasn't the first choice among many conservatives. She is not as conservative as DeVore and if Campbell hadn't been in the race, then supporting DeVore would have been a no-brainer. I respect DeVore and his service. I never attacked him personally, (unlike those who attacked Carly and ridiculed her as a "dyke" even though she just had breast cancer and lost her hair) and I wish him the best of luck in his future endeavors. He now has name recognition and a platform of support to challenge Diane Feinstein in 2012, for example, and if he does he'll...

    Sarah Palin's still got it. After a few strikeouts during the campaign season, the former Alaska governor saw three of the four candidates she endorsed sail to victory -- or move on to a runoff -- in Tuesday's primary elections. While one of them was the frontrunner well before Palin got involved, two of those candidates were trailing far behind until she stepped to their side. Palin downplayed her impact on Wednesday, telling Fox News that "any credit given to me is way overblown." She credited the "message" of the candidates, particularly the women she calls the "mama grizzlies." "Perhaps...

    Newsweek ^ | June 9, 2010 | Various
    Tuesday saw the largest primary yet of the 2010 election cycle, with voters going to the polls in closely watched races across the country. Among the big hits: GOP primaries for governor and Senate in California, the Senate in Nevada, and governor in South Carolina; and the Democratic runoff for the Senate in Arkansas. Did the elections support the anti-incumbent theme some pundits have pushed, or is there a different message? Gung-Ho Victories by Carly Fiorina (U.S. Senate seat from California), Meg Whitman (California governor), and Nikki Haley (South Carolina governor—she led opponents, but still faces a runoff) show the...

    Those who believe that Sarah Palin has quit politics or does not have a future in elective office have some 'splaining to do. If she's irrelevant, why the following statements from last night: "Her decision to get - and stay - involved in the race here in South Carolina was a huge boon to our campaign, because it caused a lot of South Carolinians to take a second look at a rising in the polls but once-little known state legislator who was fighting to give them back their government,” Haley spokesman Tim Pearson said of Palin. ... “Governor Palin’s endorsement...

    Left-wing, hack writer Joe McGinniss is showing signs of instability. Like a wife beater, he's now blaming Sarah Palin for being alarmed and upset that he -- well known as her literary stalker -- has suddenly appeared as her new next door neighbor. McGinnis has, wife-beater-like, been quoted by the Washington Post that HE is the one "offended" by Palin's portrayal of HIM. McGinniss told the Post that Palin should have "offered him a plate of cookies" when he moved in to stalk her instead of scoffing about him on her FaceBook account. He says that he was "deeply offended"...

    Joe McGinniss' alleged plagiarism -- The author's ''The Last Brother'' is stirring controversy for it's blend of fact and fiction as an unauthorized ''biography'' of Senator Edward Kennedy. The first of the controversies swirling around the unauthorized ''biography'' concerns a weird disclaimer that appeared in a 123-page advance excerpt distributed at the American Booksellers Association meeting this May. ''Some thoughts and dialogue attributed to people in this narrative,'' the statement read, ''were created by the author.'' The disclaimer later was dropped, reportedly at McGinniss' insistence, but coming hard on the heels of the much-publicized lawsuit over quotes allegedly fabricated by...

  • Letters To (WaPost) Editor: A lamestream Analysis of Sarah Palin

    Regarding Ruth Marcus's May 26 column, "Sarah Palin's lamestream thinking": I heard Ms. Palin's comments about President Obama and "Big Oil" and drew an entirely different conclusion. I do not think Ms. Palin meant to imply that Obama is in the pocket of Big Oil; I think she meant to imply that the mainstream (lamestream) media have been incredibly reluctant to investigate the remote possibility that Obama may have been influenced by his energy industry contributions. By contrast, she implied that if George W. Bush were still president, the equally remote possibility that he may have been influenced by oil...
