There you go again, LSM

Governor Palin today posted on Facebook:

While filming the Alaska documentary in Homer, I had a brief discussion with a local lady who, in typical Alaska style, decided to give me her two cents worth about my political leanings, American politics in general, and much else besides. It’s what makes our politics so uniquely democratic: two people discussing the things they care about, even though they respectfully disagree about just about everything (you can watch a brief video of the encounter here).

The LSM has now decided to use this brief encounter for another one of their spin operations. They claim I – wait for it – “appear to roll my eyes” when the lady tells me she’s a teacher. Yes, it’s come to this: the media is now trying to turn my eyebrow movements into story lines. (Maybe that’s why Botox is all the rage – if you can’t move your eyebrows, your “eye rolling” can’t be misinterpreted!) If they had checked their facts first, they would have known that I come from a family of teachers; my grandparents were teachers, my father was a teacher, my brother is a teacher, my sister works in Special Needs classrooms, my aunt is a school nurse, my mom worked as a school secretary for much of her professional life, we all volunteer in classrooms, etc., etc., etc. Given that family history, how likely is it that I would “roll my eyes” at someone telling me that they too work in that honorable profession? Stay classy, LSM.

One good thing to come out of this little episode, though, is that it helps to remind people once again that Alaska is a great state full of independent-minded people. I look forward to introducing you to some of them in the forthcoming documentary series on life in Alaska! The show will remind you to get outdoors, breathe in God’s creation, and taste the freedom!

Gov. Palin: Grace, Leadership, Smile Under Pressure

Note: Video Title Chosen by Leftist in Failed Attempt to Discredit Gov. Palin

Gov. Palin: Grace, Leadership, Dignity

In this video, Governor Palin exercised grace under pressure, sound judgment, dignity, and presidential leadership in her conversation with a protester who hung a large, hand-made "Worst Governor Ever" sign. Gov. Palin was friendly, smiled, properly explained her position, and wished her enemy well upon parting.

The protester was spouting the meme that Gov. Palin had resigned to "cash in" and was only focused on her celebrity. Gov. Palin explained that she is helping Reagan conservative candidates get elected. Throughout the exchange, Gov. Palin was upbeat, positive, and kept a smile, despite the protester's negativity. When they parted, despite their disagreement, Gov. Palin wished the protester well. The protester's heart seemed to warm to her.

Purposeful Distortion by Alaska Mafia and Leftist Media

The published accounts of this exchange tell a completely different story. The leftist media and Alaskan leftist bloggers as usual continue to blare outright lies about Gov. Palin's actions, in this case characterizing the event as her "confronting" the protester. By reading the headline, one would think Gov. Palin was involved in a brawl - the intent of using that language. The poster of the video - possibly Shannyn Moore, since the YouTube account belongs to "MooreUpNorth" - titled it as a "Homer Simpson D'OH" moment. This was no "D'OH". Gov. Palin handled the incident perfectly, as "MooreUpNorth's own footage shows.
"Smooth seas do not make skillful sailors."
