Amnesty author Mike Pence for president? Dick Armey, Club for Growth, others hype him (UPDATE: he's out) - 01/21/11

... (Newt Gingrich), (Mike Huckabee), Sarah Palin and (Mitt Romney) - these are all old news names and, quite frankly, I don’t think they have much of a chance.” While Jonathan Martin and Kasie Hunt of the Politico try to claim (link) that the appeal to Armey and Chocola is due to the claim that Pence "is viewed as a politician who would actually govern as a social and fiscal conservative" and that...

Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, several others shot; Palin, Tea Party candidate - 01/08/11

... following graphics. The first is from Sarah Palin's website and shows several Congressmen's districts in what appear to be gun crosshairs. Palin has since removed this from her site. In March, Giffords spoke out about a window being broken at her office and various death threats, saying (link): "Sarah Palin has the crosshairs of a gun sight over our district and when people do that, they’ve...

Glenn Beck "Restoring Honor" rally linked to Dick Armey (Koch too?) - 08/28/10

... peekURL.com/vqlzrtm and Part 1 of Sarah Palin's speech is at peekURL.com/vyn3lcr Any response to the borderline lunacy offered by Beck would become novel-length; for the novella version, see the dozens of tea parties posts. A few quick notes: 1. Apparently Beck unveiled or was planning on unveiling something called a "Black-Robed Regiment", a reference to religious leaders prior to the...

McCain trounces JD Hayworth in GOP primary; who's to blame (tea parties, Palin, Scott Brown...) - 08/25/10

... shares part of the blame. 4. Sarah Palin, Grover Norquist, Scott Brown and perhaps tea parties chief leader Dick Armey all supported McCain, thus sharing part of the blame. 5. And, starting over four and a half years ago, I've been trying to get people to go to McCain's events and ask him tough questions. Video of McCain being put on the spot could get hundreds of thousands of views on Youtube...

Sarah Palin goes bogus: "It all comes down to securing the border" - 03/26/10

Sarah Palin has some good qualities, but also bad qualities. And, some of the many latter involves her knowing nothing about immigration, Palin supporting McCain's position on immigration during the campaign, and her just today supporting McCain's worthless posturing on immigration. On the video at [1], Greta van Susteren of Fox News asks John McCain puffball questions that just allow him to...

Sarah Palin, Dick Armey, Grover Norquist, Scott Brown support John McCain; what J.D. Hayworth supporters can do - 02/15/10

Sarah Palin, Dick Armey of Freedomworks (see the update), Grover Norquist, and newly-elected senator Scott Brown are all supporting John McCain in his Senate re-election bid. Meanwhile, Chris Simcox dropped out of the GOP nomination earlier today, and has endorsed McCain's strongest rival, JD Hayworth. The last is running as the True Conservative against the RINO McCain. 1. This is yet another...

Sarah Palin now "Birther"? Certificate is "fair game"; what her supporters must do - 12/03/09

... Humphries show earlier today, Sarah Palin said the following: "I think the public rightfully is still making it an issue... I don't have a problem with that. I don't know if I would have to bother to make it an issue, because I think that members of the electorate still want answers... I think it's a fair question just like I think past associations and past voting records. All of that is fair...

Sarah Palin, Michelle Bachman to appear at Tea Party Nation convention (Nashville, February 2010) - 11/25/09

In February 2010, Sarah Palin will be the keynote speaker for the "First National Tea Party Convention" to be held in Nashville, Tennessee (CNN writeup here; teapartynation.com). Michelle Bachmann will also be speaking. This is yet more not-so-great news since as far as I know Palin had not previously reached out to the tea parties. As discussed at the link, the "parties" are electorally,...

Bill Kristol has hilariously bad advice for Sarah Palin (John McCain) - 11/20/09

William Kristol has some advice for Sarah Palin here, and it's not only hilariously bad but it doesn't serve the national interest. Discussing the fact that John McCain is currently just barely beating JD Hayworth in the 2010 primary, he says: Still, who could help McCain beat back a populist conservative challenger? Sarah Palin. I predict that Palin will come to Arizona next summer to campaign...

Even if Palin is right about "death panels", will her supporters be able to do anything about it? - 08/13/09

... right or not when it says that Sarah Palin wasn't wrong when she wrote the following: The America I know and love is not one in which my parents or my baby with Down Syndrome will have to stand in front of Obama's "death panel" so his bureaucrats can decide, based on a subjective judgment of their "level of productivity in society," whether they are worthy of health care. Such a system is...

McCain campaign - not Palin - came up with "palling around"; Schmidt regrets largely true ad - 07/10/09

... instance, one of the mistakes that Sarah Palin made was to claim that Barack Obama was "palling around" with Bill Ayers. Except, it was Nicolle Wallace of the McCain campaign - and not Palin - that came up with the "palling around" bit. That allowed the mainstream media to mislead about the relationship between the two, dismissing that relationship by pointing out that they weren't close friends...

Mike Murphy ignores GOP incompetence, self-defeating behavior (Sarah Palin) - 07/09/09

... forward, GOP must snap out of its Sarah Palin spell" (link). While his bad advice this time isn't as bad as his horrible immigration advice, he's still on the wrong side: Unfortunately for McCain, the actual swing voters, the independents who do determine the winner of the election, didn't buy into this fantasy at all. After a three-week sniff, most couldn't run away from Palin fast enough. He...

Sarah Palin resigning as Alaskan governor; what supporters can do - 07/03/09

Earlier today, Sarah Palin made the shocking announcement that she will be resigning as governor of Alaska (link). Unlike probably everyone else, I'm not going to bother speculating on her reasons, but instead on what her supporters can do. Assuming, of course, she does want to continue with her political career, one of the best things her supporters could do for her would be to go after those...

"National Council for a New America": new GOP, same old amnesty? (Jeb, McCain, Romney) - 04/29/09

... Pence and Jon Kyl. Per Ben Smith, Sarah Palin was invited and hasn't replied yet; Newt Gingrich and Michael Steele were ruled out due to heading a 527 and a party respectively. UPDATE: The full text of the letter they sent out is below.

The Non-Partisan Case Against Barack Obama - 10/29/08

... is blown out of proportion and Sarah Palin is taken to task for failing to state things in the most exact and legalistic terms. At the same time, Obama is allowed to make false statements and propose plans that have hugely obvious flaws. The press has served as both the source for and amplifier of outrageous smears, especially those targeted at Palin. They've also failed to ask Obama tough...

Alexander Lane, Amy Hollyfield/Politifact spin redistribution for Obama - 10/28/08

... case, they discuss the following Sarah Palin statement: "Senator Obama says that he wants to spread the wealth, which means - you know what that means... It means that government takes your money, (handed) out however a politician sees fit. Barack Obama calls it spreading the wealth, and Joe Biden calls higher taxes patriotic. And yet to Joe the Plumber, he said it sounded like socialism. And...

Great: Sarah Palin immigration stance magically same as McCain's - 10/22/08

Sarah Palin was recently interviewed by Jorge Ramos of Univision [1], and she repeatedly asked him why he - a citizen of Mexico who has no interest in becoming a U.S. citizen - keeps interfering in our internal politics. She repeatedly asked him why he was allowed to take up valuable time during a CNN debate where he wasn't even identified as a foreign citizen. Unfortunately, I'm kidding....

Scott Shane/NYT's pro-BHO spin on Bill Ayers/Barack Obama collaboration - 10/04/08

... a "Fact Check" that discusses Sarah Palin's comment that BHO is "palling around with terrorists" (link). Obviously, Palin should have put it in the correct legalistic format: "in the recent past, Barack Obama has worked with and associated with known and unrepentant terrorists". If she had, CNN wouldn't have been able to pretend that her non-legalistic formation was binding: 'Verdict: False....

Sarah Palin/Joe Biden vice presidential debate live coverage 10/2/08 - 10/02/08

... right country? [SEE UPDATE 4] Sarah Palin says she's always been proud to be an American, and so has McCain (and, by implication, she's referring to Michelle Obama's statements and, well, pretty much everything BHO says...) THE POWER GLUTES HAD A MOOD SWING: 10.23 pm. I'm changing my mind about this debate. Biden is now cleaning up... 10.29 pm. She's just whirring now... 10.30 pm. Biden's...

VP debate moderator Gwen Ifill: in the tank for Barack Obama? (didn't tell CPB, plays race card) - 10/01/08

Unbeknownst to the McCain campaign (link), Gwen Ifill of PBS - host of Thursday's vice presidential debate - has a book due to be released Inauguration Day (link): Gwen Ifill of the Public Broadcasting Service program "Washington Week" is promoting "The Breakthrough: Politics and Race in the Age of Obama," in which she argues the "black political structure" of the civil rights movement is giving...

Horrors: Jake Tapper says Sarah Palin was member of "fringe" party (Alaskan Independence Party) - 09/01/08

... sense - on vice presidential pick Sarah Palin. On the other hand, Jake Tapper's attempt to break news isn't as bad as the "news" recently coming from DailyKos, as he breathlessly lets us know that (link): Officials of the Alaskan Independence Party say that Palin was once so independent, she was once a member of their party, which, since the 1970s, has been pushing for a legal vote for Alaskans...

Todd Palin, husband of Sarah Palin, and I share common, sacred bond - 08/29/08

... McCain's vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin - and I share a common bond. Todd (as I call him) is part native Alaskan, that is, part Eskimo. Distant relations of mine are also part Eskimo. Todd understands the trials and tribulations of those distant relations of mine. I don't know what those trials and tribulations are because I've only seen those relations in photographs, but I'm sure they...

Digg Katie Couric Digging the Conventions - 08/29/08

... has 22 diggs: Was nominating Sarah Palin for the VP position a political move to try and gain more female voters by adding another historical factor to this falls election, or was it purely for her policies? Anyone can guess within a 99% probability of being accurate McCain's answer to that question. I posted about this to FreeRepublic and got the expected result: freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/...
