Did You See This Garbage Posted On the Anchorage Daily News?

Yeah, I want everyone to see this piece of crap.

I have no problem linking to a hit piece on Sarah Palin because, when people see the negativity and see the garbage, good people will be repulsed by it. Those who feed into it should find another planet inhabited by negative idiots.

Every good hearted and good minded person in America should read this piece of toilet paper because people need to know how low scum really is. You will never get people to understand the truth unless you show them the ugly side. This is the ugly side.

Come on Palin army. Let's show these buttheads at the ADN what we think about them.

This is war. What these cookie eating kool aid drinking [redacted] need is a good rhetorical butt kicking.

Man Up, Joe Scarborough: A Post by Conservative Girl with a Voice

It seems as if the sharks over at MSNBC have finally managed to sink their liberal teeth into Joe Scarborough. In an opinion piece for Politico, Scarborough takes on Sarah Palin and calls for the GOP establishment to publicly confront the former Alaskan governor. Throughout the entire piece, it is hard to decipher if Scarborough is an establishment, RINO Republican or a liberal hack. Scarborough goes to great lengths in an attempt to discredit Palin, calling her a reality star and questioning how she has time to study up on policy when she has her show, book tour and family to raise. I, for one, find Scarborough's arguments not only demeaning, but sexist as well. Would Scarborough make the same accusations about a man? After all, our very own president was viewed as a rock star during the presidential campaign; furthermore, he spent more time campaigning for president than he did actually playing senator. Would it be fair to ask how he managed to spend time with his family and raise his daughters during this time period? While this is a minute segment of his opinion piece, it sheds light on just how how of touch the Washington establishment types are with modern-day Americans like you and me. Scarborough also touches on so-called sources that he has supposedly talked to about Palin's lack of experience and goes on to write:

What man or mouse with a fully functioning human brain and a résumé as thin as Palin’s would flirt with a presidential run? It makes the political biography of Barack Obama look more like Winston Churchill’s, despite the fact that the 44th president breezed into the Oval Office as little more than a glorified state senator.

Oh really Joe...hmmm. Oh how quickly people forget. Remember the whole 2008 presidential campaign? Remember that Sarah Palin was the only candidate in the running that had executive experience? Not only did she have executive experience, but she was the most popular governor in the country who, when tapped for VP, had an approval rating in the 80 percentile. As the governor of the largest state, she tackled the corruption in Alaska head on and helped to put her state on the map. Unlike many of Mr. Scarborough's establishment friends, whose parents left them large trust funds, Sarah started from the ground up, serving in the PTA, on the city council and as a mayor before becoming governor. Click here to read all of Governor Palin's accomplishments. Word to the wise, Mr. Scarborough: Perhaps it would help if you actually do a little research before throwing insults around, acting like you know it all when you clearly do not. There is such a thing as the internet and fact checking. Did they not teach you that over at MSNBC? Well, seeing that you do work for such a highly regarded network (not), this may very well be the case. Although Mr. Scarborough works for MSNBC, he was a member of the House not too many years back. Did you know that he resigned because he wanted to spend more time with his family? Funny how he is able to criticize someone for resigning when he did the very same thing. It sounds a lot like the pot calling the kettle black if you ask me.

Kathy Griffin Booed By Troops for Bristol Palin Joke; Bristol Responds

By Adrienne Ross - www.motivationtruth.com

Kathy Griffin got a lesson in class from the military. I hope she took notes. While hosting "VH1 Divas Salute The Troops," the troops actually booed her when she made a fat joke about Bristol Palin.

Holly McKay reported on FoxNews.com
Kathy Griffin hosted the VH1 Divas salute to the troops this weekend, but her “jokes” about Bristol Palin being “fat” fell flat.

"She's the only contestant in the history of the show to actually gain weight," Griffin said in reference to Bristol's trip to the finals on “Dancing With the Stars.”

Even after the troops' loud booing, Griffin continued the attack.

"No, come on, come on. She gained like 30 pounds a week, I swear to God, it was fantastic,” Griffin said. “She's like the white Precious."


But Palin, 20, isn’t letting 50-year-old Griffin’s digs bring her down.

“The audience's reaction to this ‘comedian’ spoke volumes, and the decent people I know would probably have booed her, too,” Palin told Pop Tarts in an exclusive statement. “I hope people didn't have to pay money to hear her negativity and criticisms.”


“Calling Bristol Palin fat is inappropriate and distasteful, even under the guise of humor,” body image expert and author of “Love Your Body Love Your Life,” Sarah Maria, told Pop Tarts. “The problem is that people, and particularly young people, easily absorb the ideas, beliefs, and attitudes that are presented to them. [It's a problem] when someone makes critical comments about someone else’s body and weight, beliefs such as ‘fat is a horrible thing,’ ‘I am no good unless I am thin.'"


And while Griffin strutted in a bikini in what she called her “starvation body,” the comedienne wasn’t always so willing to flaunt her figure.

Just last year, the “Suddenly Susan” star admitted that she fell prey to some serious body image issues while seeking out her “big break” in Hollywood. Not only did Griffin get a nose job at the age of 26 in an attempt to improve her appearance, in addition to liposuction that she claims almost killed her, she also reportedly exercised obsessively, starved herself during the day and binged at night.

Having experienced the pain and pressure of show business first-hand, might one think Griffin would be a little mores sensitive to such issues?

“It is quite surprising, given her own experience," Maria said. "One would hope that her own difficulties would awaken a sensitivity, understanding, and compassion regarding the difficulties of body weight and image in today’s culture."

Read the full article here.

Of course, this isn't the first swipe Griffin has taken at a Palin. She seems to be a bit obsessed, even stooping so low as to trespass the Palins' property, which she managed to do while palling around with Levi Johnston.

Perhaps with the help of being booed by our men and women in uniform, Kathy Griffin will get the not-so-subtle hint: no one is laughing at her mean-spirited--not to mention incorrect--assessment of Bristol's weight.

Governor Palin Shoots Down Anti-Hunting Hypocrisy

By Adrienne Ross - www.motivationtruth.com

Governor Palin has been tweeting and Facebooking away about tonight's episode of "Sarah Palin's Alaska." Some on the Left never realized, apparently, that an animal had to be killed before eaten, just as they were appalled to learn that the halibut had to be caught and put to rest before we got to enjoy it. If the fish-clubbing episode drove them crazy--and it did--imagine the shape they'll be in after the Governor hunts and shoots tonight. It'll be fun to watch!

Earlier, she tweeted:
Check out this video of Ted Nugent talking about the next episode of "Sarah Palin's Alaska," and tune in to TLC... http://fb.me/wVDOcviU

Here's the video to which she refers:

Governor Palin goes on to tweet about the absurdity of objecting to hunting:

1. "Controversial" Sarah Palin's Alaska hunting episode tonight? Really?

2. Unless you've never worn leather shoes, sat upon a leather couch or eaten a piece of meat, save your condemnation of tonight's episode.

3. I remain proudly intolerant of anti-hunting hypocrisy. :)

4. Tonight's hunting episode of Sarah Palin's Alaska "controversial"? Really? Unless you've never worn leather... http://fb.me/HY3gXBVo

Tune in to "Sarah Palin's Alaska" at 9 p.m. Eastern tonight on TLC.

America By Heart Officially #2 on New York Times Hardcover Nonfiction Best Sellers List

By Adrienne Ross - www.motivationtruth.com

Yesterday I reported that America By Heart, Governor Palin's recently-released book, was already a bestseller. I then received emails from some people--a.k.a. haters--who were truly disturbed by the news of more Palin success. They barely managed to recover from the incredible success of Going Rogue, so this continued fortune has them all wee-wee'd up.

Nonetheless, it's official. America By Heart debuted at #2 on The New York Times hardcover nonfiction Best Sellers list, behind President Bush's Decision Points. And while PDS sufferers tell themselves--so they can sleep at night--that bulk orders are responsible for this feat, not so. Ian Lazaran points out:
As you can see from the rankings, the NY Times did not place a dagger next to the book. What that means is that bookstores did not report receiving bulk orders. The Democrat Party is too stupid to recognize that the books that the Governor purchased for her PAC do not count in the overall sales for the purposes of the NY Times book rankings. Even liberal Taegan Goddard conceded this point. In other words, a politician can buy one million copies of his or her book for his or her PAC and it won't count towards his or her book sales.

That concession Lazaran refers to, made earlier this year, states the following:

Mitt Romney's No Apology tops the New York Times bestseller list this week. However, a "dagger" symbol next to the book signifies that "some bookstores report receiving bulk orders." Romney's book actually has two daggers.

In contrast, Sarah Palin's Going Rogue never received a dagger next to its listing while a top the bestseller list in week 1, week 2, week 3, week 4, week 5 or week 6.

Such is the case with the new book also. So another conspiracy theory bites the dust.

While those who oppose Governor Palin at every turn try to find some shady reasons for her success, I can save them some time. People are actually buying the book because they want to hear from her, because they recognize she has worthwhile experiences to share with this nation, and because, let's just face it, she's a great American.

You can order Governor Palin's book here.

AWR Hawkins: Governor Palin is "Already Running for President"

By Adrienne Ross - www.motivationtruth.com

The first time I heard discussion about a Palin 2012 run for the presidency was November 5, 2008, the day after Barack Obama was elected to be the next President of the United States. The conversation has not since shifted. It has only intensified, it seems, with each passing day.

Like so many Americans, I immediately grabbed onto the idea of President Palin. I became involved in the 2012 Draft Sarah Committee, which is the only draft committee registered with the Federal Elections Commission. Some people gravitated to the Committee, while concerns were raised by others, the most repeated of which were "Do we really know if she wants to run?" and "It's too early to think about 2012."

It's amazing how quickly time flies, though, isn't it? The 2012 race is soon to get underway, and we realize that it wasn't really that far off after all. As for whether Governor Palin wants to run, well, that's been debated every single day since she returned to Alaska to resume her duties as governor and John McCain to Washington to pick up where he left off in the Senate. The subject is not about to change, either.

The conversation has gone back and forth with crazed rapidity. When the Governor resigned from office in July of 2009, some speculated she was going to run, and she was freeing herself up for that run. Others argued that after that controversial decision she couldn't possibly plan to run. Upon releasing Going Rogue, pundits just knew she was taking the opportunity to set her record straight so the road would be clear for a run for the highest office in the land. Other pundits said she wrote the book mainly with the hopes of exposing McCain staffers and media members who had done her wrong.

When she began to travel the nation giving policy speeches and meeting more Americans, some were convinced she was planning to run, that she was voicing a common sense message to which so many can relate and counting on that message to carry her forward. There were those, however, who said, no, she's having too much fun being a voice crying in the wilderness, so why would she put herself through the rigors of another merciless campaign?

She's definitely running, some said, when her PAC began releasing Mama Grizzly and Tea Party videos full of the faces and the fervor of a nation desperately desiring true change. Nonetheless, others maintained she was simply setting up public servants to take leadership roles as her PAC raised record money so conservatives could take back Washington. And with the emergence of "Sarah Palin's Alaska," observers have declared that the Governor is doing more than than just sharing her family and her state with America; she's showing us who she is, the upbringing she's had, and the state resources she is so ready to introduce to the nation at large--as President of this nation. Doubters, like Karl Rove, however, see the "reality show" as evidence that she could not possibly be seriously contemplating a run.

Obviously, the will she or won't she? question has been beaten to death as badly as Governor Palin beat that halibut in the second episode of "Sarah Palin's Alaska," and I'm not sure anyone truly knows the answer, except, as her friends and family in her home state say, "God and Todd." Today, however, AWR Hawkins, writing for Pajamas Media, gives a different take on it. He neither subscribes to the notion that she will run nor the notion that she won't run. His angle is this: she's already running.

Hawkins writes:
Questions about Sarah Palin’s future political plans are ubiquitous. From the left and the right, political pundits wonder aloud if she’s really thinking about running for the office of president in 2012. And depending on the pundit, the questions over whether she will run are usually tied to reasons why she should or shouldn’t.

But missing in all this guesswork over Palin’s intentions and the weighing of the pluses and minuses of her possible candidacy is the simple fact that she’s already running for president, and so far, she’s beating Obama and the mainstream media at every turn.


Counting her time on the national stage as a vice presidential candidate with John McCain, America has had over two years to watch Palin speak from the heart, while listening to Obama speak from a teleprompter. They’ve heard her relentless calls for a strong military, while watching Obama try to appease (instead of destroy) terrorists the world over. They’ve heard her defend the free market, while living with the ramifications of Obama’s stimulus package, nationalization of industry, and takeover of health care.

The American people have even seen a microcosm of a Palin-versus-Obama matchup via the 2010 midterm elections in which 30 of 43 of the House candidates she endorsed won, as did 7 of the 12 Senate candidates she supported. Moreover, those elections proved that while rank-and-file citizens largely support Palin’s worldview, they are rejecting Obama’s.

No wonder CBS News’ Nicolle Wallace said of Palin: “She is one of the shrewdest political figures in our country at this moment. She’s also one of the most electric.”

So while the pundits guess, stabbing blindly into the air in an attempt to come up with proof of whether Palin will or won’t run, the rest of us should just sit back and watch her go, because she’s running for the White House right now.

And if I had to place a bet on who wins in 2012, my money would be on Palin.

Read the full article here.

If AWR Hawkins is right, then as the nation habitually discusses what Governor Palin might do in 2012, she's marveling at the fact that we haven't yet noticed she's already doing it.

That's just one person's perspective, but it's an interesting one, is it not?
