Whatever Sarah wants… In yet another television interview, former Republican vice presidential hopeful Sarah Palin revealed on Wednesday that while she was focused on her job as Alaska’s governor she was open to the idea of a Senate bid.

Rebirth

11Nov08

Sarah’s got herself in rehab. Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, amid speculation she’ll run for president in four years, blamed Bush administration policies for the defeat last week of the GOP ticket and prayed she wouldn’t miss “an open door” for her next political opportunity. Not drug rehab. Political rehab. She’s redefining herself – trying to […]


Sarah’s Seat?

08Nov08

People are asking whether Sarah Palin will appoint herself to the U.S. Senate if/when Ted Stevens steps down. She may be able to, but according to a law, or laws, passed 4 years ago, a special election must be held within a couple of months. So what exactly are the rules? Nobody can say for […]


Ya Sarah

Sarah calls them jerks. They deserve it. An angry aide characterized the Palins as “Wasilla hillbillies looting Neiman Marcus from coast to coast.”


Dressing Sarah

Sarah moves on. Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin insisted in an interview with the Tribune on Thursday that she did not accept $150,000 worth of designer clothes from the Republican Party and “that is not who we are.” “That whole thing is just, bad!” she said. “Oh, if people only knew how frugal we are. Chris […]


Chump Change

03Nov08

Nearly half of American wage earners pay no federal income taxes. Barack proposes that in order to make that system more fair, those who aren’t paying any taxes should get a rebate paid to them from the taxes from the 5% who pay 50% of the nation’s income tax burden. Do people really believe this? […]


The liberal fear of a woman in the White House yields humorous results.


Sarah, Smile

31Oct08

How in love with Sarah are you? Judy Patrick is a professional photographer. From Alaska. Wasilla, to be exact. Where she once served as deputy mayor. To the actual mayor. Sarah Palin. Over the years Patrick’s accumulated quite a collection of photographs of her friend, including a nice assortment from Palin’s successful 2006 insurgent campaign […]


Even liberals are complaining about the liberal media. In a room full of television industry executives, no one seemed inclined to defend MSNBC on Monday for what some were calling its lopsidedly liberal coverage of the presidential election. The cable news channel is “completely out of control,” said writer-producer Linda Bloodworth–Thomason, a self-proclaimed liberal Democrat. […]


Palin Magic

27Oct08

Sarah is magic on the campaign trail. It may be late in the campaign, but a new catch phrase for John McCain and his presidential quest may have been unveiled today in Leesburg, Va. Sarah Palin, speaking to a characteristically enthusiastic crowd, was reciting her tried-and-true list of criticisms of Barack Obama when she was […]


Sarah Palin is not about $150,000 clothing budgets, as she makes clear in Florida Sunday.


Piling On

26Oct08

Scott Conroy of CBS News writes a blog entry entitled “Palin Stretches Facts In Effort To Paint Obama As Presumptuous.” She’s a politician – isn’t she required to stretch the truth? Following a fiery introduction by “The View” co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck, who accused the media of being “deliberately sexist” in its coverage of Sarah Palin, […]


Barack supporters are irate over suggestions that he is a socialist, or harbors socialist leanings. One has to suspect that this is because they don’t bother reading anything about the guy. Barack says he doesn’t regret his remarks to Joe the Plumber about spreading the wealth. Why should he? There’s a lot of buzz being […]


Sarah Talks

24Oct08

Today is the day. An attorney hired by Alaska’s personnel board to investigate whether Gov. Sarah Palin violated state ethics laws when she fired her public safety commissioner will depose the governor and her husband today. Timothy Petumenos, the attorney hired by the personnel board, will spend about six hours interviewing Palin and her husband, […]


Presidential politics is like making a movie. The candidate is the actor, his job is to deliver the lines written for him by the script writers. Politicians who don’t get this, or have a conscience, don’t do as well. Barack is the first candidate, perhaps, to fully embrace this requirement of the TV era. Everything […]


Compassion

23Oct08

You recall how the media blew things completely out of proportion a couple of weeks ago when the crowds at some McCain events got a little rowdy. It played into the “conservatives are mean” storyline that the liberal media feeds. You’re full of shit, pal. Would you be shocked to learn that liberals also get […]
