A GOODBYE Ode To Sarah Palin!

On August 29, 2008 in Dayton, Ohio, then Republican presidential candidate John McCain announced that he had chosen Sarah Louise Palin as his running mate to possibly become Vice President of the United States.

Approximately 330 days after John McCain’s announcement Sarah Louise Palin resigned as Governor on July 26, 2009, two and a half years into her four-year term.

It was fun Sarah; by golly we’ll miss ya!  Good bye Sarah, goodbye!

Here is an “Ode to Sarah”. Enjoy the lyrical stylings with complex stanza forms using You Tube.

These clips sums up the intelligence of Sarah Louise Palin’s last 330 days:

Wed., 11/26: Barbara Walters Interviews President-elect Obama Tonight At 10pm EST. Obama to Meet Sarah Palin.

Obama Economy President-elect Obama really, really wants to keep his BlackBerry.

The President-elect tells Barbara Walters in an interview airing Wednesday night that he’s trying to talk the Secret Service and others into letting him keep his wireless device.

Authorities fear hackers could break into his inbox and harvest data that’s potentially damaging to national security.

Obama Walters “This is a problem,” Obama said with a laugh in the interview which will broadcast on ABC at 10pm EST tonight.  Obama believes that keeping his BlackBerry at hand will allow him to keep a better handle on his job because he will be ‘in-touch’ and not isolated from the ‘pulse’ of the nation.

“I’m negotiating to figure out how can I get information from outside of the 10 or 12 people who surround my office in the White House. Because one of the worst things I think that could happen to a President is losing touch with what people are going through day to day,” he told Walters.

In other news, Obama will come face-to-face with the Energizer Alaskan Governor who just won’t quit.   Obama’s team announced yesterday that he would meet in Philadelphia next Tuesday, December 2 with Democratic and Republican governors to bring them up to speed on his plans to reverse the financial meltdown.

“We’re going to be working very closely with governors,” Obama said yesterday. “This economic recovery plan will require their input, their participation.”

Sarah Palin’s Turkeygate: Who’s The Real Turkey?

Sarah Palin is back in Alaska and has resumed her hectic schedule filled with meetings talking about the country of Africa while watching Russians from her front porch. 

Palin took time out of her demanding schedule to drive to Wasilla in order to pardon a local turkey for Thanksgiving.

After Palin pardoned the Wasilla turkey she decided to give an interview to a local TV station. What makes this bizarre is that while Palin was chatting away about  missing the limelight, the ‘hecticness’ and her great appreciation of the lower 48, turkeys were squawking behind her protesting their own slaughter.  It seems that Palin did not hear their urgent squawks for help as she aimlessly chewed the fat.

Seeing is believing! Watch the video below.  The video is grisly so be warned!

Anchorage, Alaska: Palin’s Hometown Newspaper Endorses Obama

Anchorage Daily News – Obama for president!

Palin’s rise captivates us but nation needs a steady hand

Alaska enters its 50th-anniversary year in the glow of an improbable and highly memorable event: the nomination of Gov. Sarah Palin as the Republican vice presidential candidate. For the first time ever, an Alaskan is making a serious bid for national office, and in doing so she brings broad attention and recognition not only to herself, but also to the state she leads.

Alaska’s founders were optimistic people, but even the most farsighted might have been stretched to imagine this scenario. No matter the outcome in November, this election will mark a signal moment in the history of the 49th state. Many Alaskans are proud to see their governor, and their state, so prominent on the national stage.

Gov. Palin’s nomination clearly alters the landscape for Alaskans as we survey this race for the presidency — but it does not overwhelm all other judgment. The election, after all is said and done, is not about Sarah Palin, and our sober view is that her running mate, Sen. John McCain, is the wrong choice for president at this critical time for our nation.

Sen. Barack Obama, the Democratic nominee, brings far more promise to the office. In a time of grave economic crisis, he displays thoughtful analysis, enlists wise counsel and operates with a cool, steady hand. The same cannot be said of Sen. McCain.

Since his early acknowledgement that economic policy is not his strong suit, Sen. McCain has stumbled and fumbled badly in dealing with the accelerating crisis as it emerged. He declared that “the fundamentals of our economy are strong” at 9 a.m. one day and by 11 a.m. was describing an economy in crisis. He is both a longtime advocate of less market regulation and a supporter of the huge taxpayer-funded Wall Street bailout. His behavior in this crisis — erratic is a kind description — shows him to be ill-equipped to lead the essential effort of reining in a runaway financial system and setting an anxious nation on course to economic recovery.

Sen. Obama warned regulators and the nation 19 months ago that the subprime lending crisis was a disaster in the making. Sen. McCain backed tighter rules for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, but didn’t do much to advance that legislation. Of the two candidates, Sen. Obama better understands the mortgage meltdown’s root causes and has the judgment and intelligence to shape a solution, as well as the leadership to rally the country behind it. It is easy to look at Sen. Obama and see a return to the smart, bipartisan economic policies of the last Democratic administration in Washington, which left the country with the momentum of growth and a budget surplus that President George Bush has squandered.

On the most important issue of the day, Sen. Obama is a clear choice.

Obama’s Soles Shows His Real Soul…

 Hockey Mom and so called ‘Wal-Mart’ Mom Sarah Palin pays $4,000 for a haircut, spends $13,200 in seven weeks for someone to do her make-up, and spends $150,000 in seven weeks on a shopping sprees for clothing and accessories (Average of $21,400 each week!!!).

Go ahead, make a list of the things you could do with $150,000 that would change your life forever!

Each day Palin stands in front of Average Joes and Joans but when she’s off the stage she’s shopping like she’s a movie star from Hollywood!  This kind of spending is selfish and hypocritical while MILLIONS of Americans are losing their homes to foreclosures, MILLIONS are losing their savings and retirement income, almost ONE MILLION have lost their jobs in 2008 and MILLIONS of Americans cannot put food on their table! SHAMEFUL!!!

John McCain owns 8 houses.  Has 13 cars. Wears $520 Italian shoes. And Cindy McCain wears $300,000 dollar outfits.

Obama wears his shoes until there are holes in his shoes and then gets them re-soled – but Obama’s an elitist???

This shows me that Obama is more interested in solving Americans problems than in himself or material things.

Who do you think better understands spending money responsibly?  There’s only one honest answer – Barack Obama.

Sarah Palin Strikes Out Again! “VP In Charge of Senate”?!

On Monday Palin granted an interview to an NBC affiliate in Colorado. 3rdgrader (9 year old) Brandon Garcia from a local elementary school sent in a question asking Palin, “What does the Vice President do?”

Sarah Palin AGAIN wrongly answered that the Vice President is ‘in charge of the United States Senate’.  Sorry Sarah, while the Vice President presides over the Senate, he or she is not in charge of it. The VP is not a senator and does not have any legislative authority. This is the third time Palin got this SAME question wrong – obviously Sarah Palin is NOT a quick learner!

Palin’s answer: “That’s something that Piper would ask me also! They’re in charge of the U.S. Senate so if they want to they can really get in there with the senators and make a lot of good policy changes that will make life better for Brandon and his family and his classroom.

Palin herself asked this very question in July – she still hasn’t learned the correct answer.

Article I of the United States Constitution establishes an exceptionally limited role for the Vice President — giving the office holder a vote only when the Senate is “equally divided”:

The Vice President of the United States shall be President of the Senate, but shall have no vote, unless they be equally divided.

In addition the U.S. Senate website explains that the modern role of Vice Presidents has been to preside over the Senate only on ceremonial occasions.”

My question is, ‘What has Sarah Palin learned while on the campaign trail for 7 weeks.

My answer, absolutely nothing! Betcha she thinks she can still see Russia from her front yard.

Lord help us all!

Pimping The First Dude Todd Palin For $15 Million

 It must be nice to be Sarah Palin.  The Associate Press requested copies of emails sent to and from Todd Palin to Alaskan officials.  Governor Palin quickly said yes to the request but added a stipulation – cough up $15 million dollars!

Governor Palin’s office said it would take up to six hours of a programmer’s time to assemble the e-mail of just a single state employee, then another two hours for “security” checks, and finally five hours to search the e-mail for whatever word or topic the requestor is seeking. At $73.87 an hour, that’s $960.31 for a single e-mail account. And there are 16,000 full-time state employees.

Governor Palin’s office told the AP that if they send a check for $15,364,960.00 Governor Palin will gladly hand over the First Dude’s emails that showed that his wife gave him access to Alaskan state business that he should not have had access to.

 In addition, the governor’s office says it can provide copies of the emails but AFTER November 4 and on paper only, not electronically. Why? Because lawyers need printouts so they can black out, or “redact,” private or exempted information. That task is more difficult because Palin and her senior staff have used government e-mail accounts for some personal correspondence, and personal e-mail accounts for much of their government correspondence. The photocopies of those printouts will be a relative bargain, only 10 cents a page. 

This is such predictable delay tactics.

Vote Obama/Biden 08!
