  • 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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Joe McGinniss is wrong to move next door to Sarah Palin in Alaska in order to gather material for his book on her due out in 2011. McGinniss is well known for pushing the envelope when it comes to his subjects. His 1983 book on the Jeffrey MacDonald murder trial result ended in a lawsuit by MacDonald alleging he had been set up by McGinniss. There was an out of court settlement. His next book on the Kennedy's brought similar reaction from that clan who felt that McGinniss had greatly altered the key facts. Now Palin is his subject and...

    Sarah Palin sure is dropping the f-bomb a lot lately. In a widely noted speech this month to the Susan B. Anthony List, an anti-abortion-rights group, Palin invoked the words "feminism" and "feminist" no less than a dozen times. She called for a "pro-woman sisterhood" and addressed the "sisters" in the audience. If it weren't for the regular references to gun rights, you might have thought you were listening to Gloria Steinem. If this rhetoric seems uncharacteristic of the former governor of Alaska, that's because it is. When running for vice president in 2008, Palin flip-flopped on the feminist question,...

So she knew McGinniss was writing the book and found him and offered him the house.” Bam!

    Sarah Palin’s post-gubernatorial career has been shaped, and misshaped, by a media strategy heavy on knee-jerk combativeness, with a not insignificant dose of victim’s complex thrown in. Her ceaseless campaign against the perceived distortions of the mainstream media routinely crosses from defensiveness into confrontation, and even paranoia. Her recent defenses of Rand Paul and Nikki Haley — two conservatives facing starkly different political challenges — were remarkably similar boilerplate condemnations of “gotcha politics” and “media corruption” that managed to reduce the pair’s trials to her own persecution. Palin’s prickliness has received a good deal of media attention, which makes sense....

Just The Facts, Ma'am.If you have seen this man in the residential area of Sarah Palin's neighborhood in Wasilla, Alaska, please, report if he is found to be peeking or peeping into Piper's bedroom from a house that resembles this. Ultra Palin-Hater, and author with peccable ethics, Joe McGinnis is attempting to outdo some of his previous sleeze journalism after moving next door and inhabiting a house 15 feet from Sarah Palin's household of children and grandchildren. Evidently, he was lured by a Palin hatin' neighbor....

    Passing The Buck Doesn’t “Plug the D#*! Hole” Nearly 40 days in, our President finally addressed the American people’s growing concerns about the Gulf Coast oil spill. Listening to today’s press conference, you’d think the administration has been working with single-minded focus on the Gulf gusher since the start of the disaster. In reality, their focus has been anything but singular to help solve this monumental problem. If the President really was fully focused on this issue from day one, why did it take nine whole days before the administration asked the Department of Defense for help in deploying equipment...

In reality, their focus has been anything but singular to help solve this monumental problem.

  • Palin Endorses Tim James For Governor Of Alabama

    Sarah Palin’s father and brother, Chuck Heath Sr. and Chuck Heath Jr., have endorsed Republican gubernatorial candidate Tim James for governor of Alabama. Chuck Heath, Sr. says, “I’m all for him. He’s my kind of guy. I’m very impressed with him.” Heath met with Tim James earlier in the year at the Rainy Day Patriots’ TEA Party rally on Tax Day, April 15, in the Birmingham area. While there was some political conversation, the majority of the time was spent by the two men talking about their mutual love of hunting and the outdoors. James said upon hearing the news,...

    Creepy author Joe McGinniss, who is writing a book about Palin, bought a house next door to Sarah Palin. When a reporter tried to talk to him about it, he got this response: ABC News reporter Neal Karlinsky goes to the house McGinniss is living in and tries to talk to him. McGinniss tells Karlinsky to “get off my property,” and threatens to call the Wasilla police! He has now even posted “No Trespassing” Signs on the property! Video is here.

    BOISE -- The biggest Idaho primary voter turn out in a decade may have been strongly steeped by an energized Tea Party movement, says Secretary of State Ben Ysursa. About 27 percent of registered voters cast ballots Tuesday. Ysursa had been projecting 26 percent turnout. That amounts to some 202,700 voters, an unofficial figure but probably the most since 2000 when about 210,000 primary voters cast ballots. Tea Party favorite Raul Labrador certainly benefited, upsetting opponent Vaughn Ward in the GOP first congressional district race. Ward outspent Labrador six to one and brought in political star Sarah Palin, a Tea...

    <p>The Palins’ new neighbor, it turns out, is author Joe McGinniss. Coincidence? I think not. McGinniss wrote an unflattering profile of Palin for Portfolio magazine last year, and he’s now writing a book about the former Alaska governor. So he’s moved in next door.</p>

    Today is just another day, which means another day for the media to lie, spin, and distort anything Sarah Palin does or says. Our shinning example for the day would be by Washington Post Columnist, Ruth Marcus in an article she wrote titled “Sarah Palin’s fact-free commentary on Paul and BP.” Ruth claims that an interview Governor Palin gave to Chris Wallace on FOX last Sunday “pushed” her “over the edge.” I certainly hope she can recover from that… Marcus had a good cranky rant about Rand Paul, which I’m not going to get in to here. Rachel Maddow’s “gotcha’...

    Joe McGinniss' Book, Slated for 2011 Release, Is Being Written in Wasilla, Alaska, next door to Sarah Palin's home! The former Alaska governor has a new neighbor and it's not someone she is happy about. Author and investigative reporter Joe McGinniss , who has written critically of Palin in the past, rented the house next to the former GOP vice presidential candidate so he can write a book about her. The Palins , whose ever-expanding compound is bustling with construction, are putting up a new fence that they hope will block McGinniss' view. Palin took to Facebook Wednesday to complain...

    Basically, the writer is saying, Wesley Donahue who worked for Romney in the past, was involved heavily in pushing the Rumor all last year according to the email provided by Will Forks....Now considering that Romney did endorse Nikki, some are wondering why would Donahue push this story now, if he did at all? The speculations is speculation but does make sense in a way: Many expect Palin to run for President and win the Iowa caucuses (she has strong support there) even stronger if Huckabee isn't running); many expect Mitt to do very well in the New Hampshire Primary The...
