Palin

My Fellow Americats,

Palin broke a law but didn't break a law.

We have sunk to a new low in disinformation.

Today a special investigator's report from Alaska accuses Palin of abusing power to have her ex brother-in-law fired.


Bull hockey.



A quote from the report:

"The Branchflower report states Todd Palin used his wife's office and its resources to press for Wooten's removal, and the governor "failed to act" to stop it. But because Todd Palin is not a state employee, the report makes no finding regarding his conduct."


So the issue is whether Todd Palin (not Sarah ) tried to get his brother in law fired. And apparently Sarah failed to act. Since when does a wife control her husband?

In addition the report says this:

"About 1,000 more pages of documents compiled during the inquiry will remain confidential because they involve private personnel matters, according to the council's chairman, state Sen. Kim Elton.

"I believe that these findings may help people come to a conclusion on how they should vote" in the presidential election, Elton said."

Senator Kim Elton is a DEMOCRAT.

What is Kim hiding in those 1000 pages of documents?????????????????? And who is she to tell me how to vote???

Let's get down to the real issue, which I am well known for.


The issue is this: Cattiness. Pure and Simple.

Personally I have been shocked at the catty behaviour of liberal women ever since Palin was selected as a VP candidate. Democratic women have been looking down their noses at Palin, and it's embarassing to me as a girl cat.

The SNL skit with actresses portraying both Palin and Hillary was hilarious, but also brilliant for capturing the viciousness of the wars between red and blue women.

Why can't a woman be conservative? This conservative candidate fielded many catty comments yesterday from her opponant, Chey, a very liberal democat. Stick to the issues!

Tonight I saw a piece on CNN about African American Republicans. Like those actually exist???Wow. I never knew. Bro, I'm so sorry to have mislabled you.

It's the issues, it's the platforms.

Luv,

Skittles, The Huntress

I am not into politics at all, but I know how Mis informed the American people are with their newscasts..
the biggest example WOMD... the rest of the world new what was goingon.. but anyways...
I have no idea of the accuracy of what was reported on our Tv but that was said.. (as you reported) and also the main one was that she then fired the guy that her husband tried to bully into firing the brother in law...
In other words... " You did not sack him so you are sacked"
But apparently she is saying that it was to do with downgrading...
Who knows..As you say it is good to have ALL the facts :)

Well, I think that it is important to look at what it means when a committee, who was formed by 11 Republicans, concludes that a Governor of a state has in fact abused her power. We can always spin on what it does not say, but here is what it does stay.

Palin was elected as an official to represent her state. To conclude that she abused her power while in office means that she misused her position for political purposes. To me, this conclusion is indeed serious, and raises issues about her character as an elected official. This is not some tenious link, or association, but says something ACTUALLY about the person herself.

I was not going to comment here, but to stay silent be irresponsible, I think.

I know you and I disagree on this election, on what is being represented, but as you can see from my blog, I question all the incitment and hate bateing that has been surfacing lately. Sean Hannity was himself a victim of his own spin, when someone asked him if he was anti-semitic. He immediately said no, but once spined, it was guilt by association. Here is the exchange:

For those too lazy to watch the video, here is a transcript, where Hannity is called an anti-semite, for his association with an anti-semite:

ROBERT GIBBS, OBAMA CAMPAIGN COMMUNICATIONS DIRECTOR: Are you anti-Semitic?

SEAN HANNITY, CO-HOST, FOX NEWS CHANNEL'S "HANNITY & COLMES": Not at all.

GIBBS: OK. On your show on Sunday, you-the show that's named after you, the show where the centerpiece of that show was a guy named Andy Martin.

HANNITY: I know you're reading your talking points.

GIBBS: No, no.

HANNITY: When I interviewed-hang on a second. Answer the question. When I interviewed Malik Shabazz, when I interviewed Al Sharpton, when I interviewed all these controversial figures-you see, on FOX, we actually interview people of all points of view, whether we agree or disagree. The statement you're about to read I-I...

GIBBS: Andy Martin called a judge "a crooked slimy Jew"...

HANNITY: I totally completely...

GIBBS: ... "who has a history of lying and deceiving, common to members of his race."

HANNITY: Let me ask you...

GIBBS: Martin went on to write that he understand better why-better why the Holocaust took place, given that Jew survivors are acting...

HANNITY: Here's my answer to you. I find those comments despicable.

But wait a minute.

GIBBS: You put him on your show.

HANNITY: We put Malik Shabazz on the show. I put Khalil Mohammed (ph) on my show.

GIBBS: Why am I not to believe that you're anti-Semitic?

HANNITY: Let me-here's the answer.

GIBBS: Why am I not to believe that everybody on the network is anti-Semitic?

HANNITY: Call the American people.

GIBBS: Called the Jews slimy and understands the Holocaust better because of the way...

HANNITY: I'm explaining to you-can I finish first?

ALAN COLMES, CO-HOST, FOX NEWS CHANNEL'S "HANNITY & COLMES": We only have a short time.

HANNITY: I'm explaining to you.

GIBBS: ... if that's the way you view Jews. I can't believe you would give a platform to...

HANNITY: So you don't want me to interview anybody that I disagree with? Only-I can interview only people...

GIBBS: You built your whole show around him, Sean.

HANNITY: Barack Obama...

GIBBS: I had to believe only that you agree with each and everything that Andy Martin says.

HANNITY: Listen, Barack Obama..

We have to look at what people say, what conclusions are made in fact, not in theory or upon speculation. This is my humble opinion, and one I hope more people aspire to embrace in America today.

The report also recommended that no actions be taken, I think.

So something happened, but it's not actionable.

Even had it been a noise violation, you'd get a 50 dollar fine.

Public urination is about 75 dollars plus a surtax.

So whatever "crime" happened, it's less than these "quality of life" crimes since there was no penalty suggested.

It's still kind of murky.

But yes finally I think it's a kind of dogged cattiness, which we should find fishy and not be cowed by it.

I am a liberal girl kitty, and I think the reason Democat women don't like Palin is that she is hypocritical about what she says she stands for, and what she actually does in public.

We could argue about this all day, but what your post is about is that Todd Palin tried to get his ex brother-in-law fired, and Sarah Palin is in trouble for firing the man's supervisor. You said, "Since when does a wife control her husband?" Well, since the wife is the Governor of the state and uses her office to do something unethical because of her husband, that's when! You can't allow a man to be fired, when he is just doing his job, because you are unhappy that he didn't fire the guy that divorced your sister! That's not how we want our politicians to act.

If Palin became Vice President, and maybe even President, would you want her to use the office to solve her personal problems that way?

I agree with Barbara from California. This raises concerns about her professional ethics.

I think Senator Palin is very good at smiling and acting friendly and talking on TV. That doesn't make her a good candidate for Vice President, though!

Skittles, The Huntress said...

Some of my comments were tongue in cheek, like "when does a wife control her husband."

I took the quotes straight from a CNN report.

And Barbara's post over at Women On The Verge of Thinking is an excellent post.

At the same time, I have many very liberal women friends who excoriate Palin in ways that have nothing to do with the issues or her character. I am very saddened by this as a woman.

And, I have fielded many emails, both from conservatives and liberals full of flat out lies about who said what. The worst was one sent by a conservative friend claiming that Andy Rooney had made extremely racist remarks about Obama on 60 minutes. When I sent it back to her telling her to check the 60 minutes website, and that no such thing happened, I got no response from her.

Did you know that Sarah Palin hates cats? My beans told me that. Apparently her best friends were interviewed and that's what they said.

Quasi,

This is incredibly important news. She hates cats???

Bad, bad, bad! THAT says a lot about her character.

One more note to Barbara of California, since I was heading out the door to work this AM.

Barbara wrote this:

See, Barbara, this is the very thing I'm talking about. I visited your blog and left a polite comment.

You came to my blog, disagreed with what I wrote, and delivered a through the back door-backhanded insult.

Flip the coin over and you are calling me irresponsible.

Thanks! Proved the point I was making about women getting catty over this issue of Palin!

here's one for discussion

could you point to an issue and indicate for the audience what is the weakness in the argument any argument from both sides red and blue

i resent the political labelling because my perspective is always poetry first
so a red woman was a woman who could hold her own out in the wild west a do all or do nuthin sort of gal but hell and by god if a jobs needs to be done why she's sure as hell going to get 'er done as it were

but a blue woman to a poet is something else
she's a sad girl wrapped in the hues of a fading aftenoon
inclined to tears
sipping tea
doing everything she can not to give in to listening to sad songs
the rain doesn't help

i think if sarah palin wins we're going to see some cspan shots of sarah in her perch in the senate multitasking for the people shs's going to make it OK for women to use cell phones while working the senate floor...i'm trying to think if i would have hung around with sarah palin if she had gone to my high school...she does sort of remind me of a girl i once knew who became famous in my home state for going into bars and picking fights with boys and basically kicking the shit out of them until someone stopped her...the difference is that sarah palin is more preoccupied with her hair her glasses and her lipstick
