Purple Team – Palin
Sometimes, I think it’s a public service to sit through some of this garbage so that you don’t have to.
The Today Show calls Joe McGuinness “longtime political author” — but I can think of a few better descriptive words more apt for a man who moved next door to the Palin family to stalk them and peep into the windows of young girls, the way McGuinness did last summer. “Longtime political author” is not the word I’d use to accurately convey the disgust his behavior generates.
I have no idea what this woman’s name is (the new Today Show talking head whose head is talking in the clip above), but she’s the latest mimeographed Today Show female host, succeeding Meredith Viera, who herself replaced “the perky one” Katie Couric, who was the pale replacement for Jane Pauley (ignoring Deborah Norville completely, as everyone should). These hosts seem to get more generic and less competent as they continue to be churned out of “journalism school”.
Whatever her name is (I think it might be “Savannah Smiles”, honestly, which wouldn’t surprise me in the least if it was true) sat down with Joe McGinniss in his cluttered, ramshackle home and kept calling his book “a bombshell” and “a takedown of Sarah Palin”.
Othertimes, he was distracted and seemingly looking about in corners or on the ceilings for the trolls, nymphs, and brownies he believes live or are baked there.
McGinniss has a creepy, whispering, fey voice and reminds me of a lonely old man in the neighborhood well-informed mothers would insist their kids avoid come trick-or-treating time. I don’t think McGinniss would put razor blades in the candy or anything, but I also wouldn’t trust him to not do anything inappropriate around children when unsupervised either. He’s just creepy. If your frisbee lands in his yard, kids, let him keep it. I don’t think it would be hygienic to ever want back anything that had been in his possession when the doors are closed.
Savannah Smiles goes on to say McGinniss spent four months in Wasilla, Alaska, but forgets to mention he was stalking the Palin family at that time. She makes it sound like his car brokedown or his plane was diverted there, in the middle of nowhere, and he looked up and said, “Oh, Wasilla. I can either write about the Iditarod or I can stalk Sarah Palin. Let me toss this coin and see how I’ll spend my life”.
Apparently, he walked up and down the various streets in town and ended up speaking to 200 people who had heard of Sarah Palin in order to write his book. I suspect some of his “interviews” were with various woodland creatures and ghosts or other things he may have made up, since most of his “interview” subjects are anonymous in the book.
McGinniss lies in the interview and says it was just “happenstance” that he moved next door to the Palin family and started peeping in their windows; he claims the woman who owned the house practically forced him to move there and rent it, and it was never his idea.
Then he claims that he didn’t include in the book anything he learned about the Palin family from living next door. What really happened, that The Today Show doesn’t tell you, is that the Palin family filmed the Sarah Palin’s Alaska TV show during this time and were away for most of McGinniss’ peeping expedition, so all of the minors in the family were well-protected at a safe distance from this man when he was holed up next door, doing whatever it was he did all day, with binoculars.
McGinniss makes a point of repeatedly calling the Governor “Sarah”, as if he personally knows her. Stalkers always do this, because in his imagination he probably has a manufactured fantasy relationship with the Governor. It would not surprise me in the least if he dressed up as her “for Halloween” and had arguments with himself in the mirror about whether or not the Governor is being a good friend to him.
Another clue to McGinniss’ mental health is how mad he gets when telling Savannah Smiles about Todd Palin “tromping” through the yard to tell him to behave himself and stop peeping on the Palin’s minor children.
Savannah reads part of a statement from Todd describing how the Palin family feels about McGinniss’ creepiness and his obsession with the Governor.
McGinnis sits there, listening proudly, like he’s receiving a commendation.
Then McGinniss accuses the Governor of being a bad mother and of using cocaine. Savannah asks him how he knows these things, and McGinniss blushes and says, essentially, “I just know”. He makes a point of saying he’s not accusing the Governor of doing anything like this now, probably because he doesn’t want to be sued for defamation.
The next weird bit reveals what a racist McGinniss must be, because he tells Savannah Smiles it’s a big scandal that Governor Palin allegedly dated a black basketball player before she married Todd — which is a scandal only to the agenda-driven media and hypocrite Leftists like McGinniss because even if the Governor had indeed dated this man, an unmarried woman dating a black man is not a scandal.
Except, of course, to the hypocrite racists in the agenda-driven media who would invent a scandal over that.
McGinniss then says the Governor is not going to run for President because she’s just interested in easy money.
Which is interesting because the Governor turned down about $10 million to film another season of “Sarah Palin’s Alaska” for TLC, which would have gone into production this summer and aired next year, but she clearly didn’t take that easy money. $10 million is a lot of money to turn down for what would essentially be an all-expenses-paid summer long vacation with her family that would then be aired as a TV series promoting herself — if all she was interested in was easy money and attention as McGinniss claims.
Todd Palin is right: McGinniss is creepy, and many people who came in contact with him while he was in Wasilla agreed with the depiction of him as an obsessed and disingenuous man with an ax to grind.
I have a friend who works at bookstore who is allowed to borrow books for free, and she’s going to lend me McGinniss’ book for a few days so that I can read it, do a write-up on every accusation he makes in it, and then return it. This way, people can know what lies McGinniss has told without them ever having to read this tripe for themselves. It will be worth staying up all night reading this garbage myself so that other people don’t have to, and so they don’t send any royalties McGinniss’ way from buying his work for use as anything other than toilet paper.
Honestly, McGinniss is one of those people who make you want to take a shower after having watched and listened to him.
Sarah Palin on “The Bob & Mark Show” in Alaska at 930am PST 9/16/11? UPDATE: Bob & Mark Show just playing games, Palin never intended to be on the show
UPDATE 130pm CST 9/16/11: The Bob & Mark Show and station KWHL were just playing games with this. On the show today, Bob and Mark admitted people were calling the station as early as yesterday afternoon, asking if the Governor would be on. The station deliberately played coy, telling people they’d just have to listen to find out. The way the person at the switchboard said this led people to believe there would indeed be an appearance by Governor Palin on the show today. This was picked up by Simon Conway in Iowa, another morning radio host, who blasted it out on his Facebook that Governor Palin would make an announcement today. People then used FreeRepublic.com to propagate links to that Facebook posting. I heard about all this at around 240am and put up this posting to investigate whether this was true or not. It sure sounded plausible the Governor would appear on the radio show, since she’s done that several times before. But, as you can read below, I questioned how an entry into the race today would fit with the announced GOP presidential debate schedule.
The Governor will announce when she wants to announce, in keeping with her strategy — which at some point in the future I’m sure you will look back on and see why she’s done everything she’s done. The Governor knows what she’s doing.
Bob and Mark, however, are just playing games and KWHL should know better than to enable them. I don’t know why Simon Conway did what he did, either, but it did lend some excitement to the morning listening in to see if the announcement would be made.
There is no other Republican who generates this sort of excitement, or whose potential appearance on a radio show could make people who never listen to the radio tune in on the off-chance she’ll appear.
Just imagine the explosion of excitement that will occur when she does indeed announce.
ORIGINAL POST 245am CST 9/16/11:
“The Bob & Mark Show” broadcasts out of Anchorage, Alaska, with hosts Bob and Mark on KWHL. [Click here for a link to their site, where you can listen to the broadcast LIVE! ] In the final episode of “Sarah Palin’s Alaska” on TLC — which Governor Palin herself produced and had complete creative control over — the Governor promised to let Bob and Mark know, on the air, when she decides to run for president. Since the Governor personally chose to have that bit included in the episode, there has to be a reason for this. “The Bob and Mark Show” broadcasts Monday through Friday.
Though tomorrow is Constitution Day, today’s when Constitution Day is observed in most of the country. It’s also a day when “The Bob and Mark Show” broadcasts. Many believe the Governor will announce her presidential bid on the show today — since she appears to indeed be scheduled as a guest at 930am PST…which is 1130am CST and 1230pm EST.
I have no idea what will happen on the show, but I’m going to tune in just in case. If you hear anything else pertaining to this, please share the info in this thread. It sure is interesting the Governor is booked on this show, today of all days, since restoring respect for the Constitution is one of the main planks in what’s presumed to be the Governor’s presidential platform.
Tune into “The Bob & Mark Show” to see what happens!
PS: I’ve been trying for a few weeks now to determine if Governor Palin has any public events scheduled for Constitution Day (observed today, or tomorrow 9/17/11). I have not been able to turn up anything, which is intriguing in itself. We don’t know what this means yet — if anything — but I’m sure going to listen to “The Bob & Mark Show” to see if she’s really going to be on, and to listen to what the Governor says if she does in fact appear on the show.
UPDATE: It looks like the source of this rumor is Simon Conway, who is a drive time radio host in Iowa, who said on Facebook that he saw something posted at a Palin supporting group about the Bob & Mark appearance before it was taken down. Conway seems like he wanted to be the first to say she was going to announce today, so he would get the attention that would come with that. Looking at the GOP schedule of debates, though, I don’t know what to think to be honest. Rick Perry loses more steam every debate, and the next debate is not until September 22nd. It sure keeps with Governor Palin’s past announcements to declare her candidacy on a symbolic day like Constitution Day…but it also seems like part of her strategy to keep allowing Perry to further implode before she joins the race. We all know the moment Governor Palin announces, she’ll be the sole focus, and guys like Perry won’t get the vetting and media attention they need as her opponents. The debate after the 22nd is in October, on a day when the Governor is scheduled to give a speech on economics in Korea.
Technically, she could fly back in time to participate in the debate, since she’d make up time on the 14 hour flight back to the States, though I don’t know if she’d be inclined to do this. It seems odd for her to participate in the September 22nd debate, but then skip the one on October 18th, and then rejoin the group a debate after that…unless her intention is to begin participating in the debates after the 18th. That would give her opponents two appearances on the stage without her to attack her, and I don’t see her allowing that to happen though.
I think even the Governor’s detractors need to admit she’s a masterful strategist who keeps everyone guessing. She really brings great excitement to American politics. Honestly, my boyfriend Justin asked what I was typing so late and I told him, and now he’s too excited to sleep and has actually woken his mother up in Arkansas to tell her to listen to this radio show. I told him not to do this, but he’s excited at the mere prospect of Governor Palin announcing today. I don’t think even Mittens Romneycare’s own family are excited by anything he does. Let alone complete strangers.
Can you imagine someone like Justin calling his mother long distance in the middle of the night, waking her up, just to tell her there’s a chance Mitt Romney could be on an obscure radio show in Alaska later that morning — and that she would be excited and happy he did this?
UPDATE: 1130am CST Trying to listen to Bob & Mark, but the little radio feature of their site won’t work. Maybe too many people are listening in. If you know of an alternate means of listening, please share. Is this station picked up on any other internet site people can listen in to?
UPDATE: 1145am CST I finally got the streaming to work, but Bob & Mark are talking about an event being held at the Anchorage Wal-Mart to benefit the Fisher House, which helps soldiers coming back from war recover and readjust to being home. There’s a raffle that’s helping the cause. It’s really nice they’re spending so much time on this cause…I give them a lot of credit because it seems like they’re big supporters of our troops. They’re taking calls now from people….and someone just called and asked if Sarah Palin is going to be on. Chris from Ohio is on now. She asked them if they’re going to have the Governor on, but they say she’s not scheduled. Todd apparently is moose hunting and they called him yesterday and he had no idea about the Governor being on. Bob & Mark is actually a very fun show…much better than morning radio here in Chicago…but I’m going to stop listening now because it’s clear the Governor will not be on.
UPDATE 1153am CST: So, there you have it. Simon Conway of Iowa drive time radio started this rumor yesterday on his Facebook page, and we investigated it, but it turns out Simon was wrong and the Governor did not in fact announce on the Bob & Mark Show 9/16/11. Tomorrow is actually Constitution Day, so perhaps something will happen then, but it’s not happening on the Bob & Mark Show today, contrary to what Simon Conway said.
UPDATE: 1210pm CST Looks like Bob & Mark are now saying Governor Palin will be calling in within the next hour. In the meantime, they’re playing some really great music, if you have nothing to listen to at work. It’s actually fun. And exciting wondering what the Governor will say when she calls in.
UPDATE: 1215pm Before they went to commercial, they said “Sarah, up next”
UPDATE: 1221pm – they’re promoting a comedy show now, and giving the menu to a restaurant, where they have different sandwiches for $9.95. You get free onion rings and fries by mentioning the Bob & Mark Show. Don’t tell Michelle Antoinette Obama though! Sarah Palin is supposed to call in any minute now.
UPDATE: 1225 while they are waiting for her call, they are playing comedy calling-in bits
UPDATE: 1227pm Now they’re saying to someone named April Weatherwood that Governor Palin will not be on the show. [ I think this was recorded earlier though ]. April also said that she called the station’s switchboard yesterday and they said for her to listen in at 1030am CST.
UPDATE: 1230pm CST, where I’m from in Cleveland, the morning radio show people played games all the time…so I honestly have no idea what’s going on or if the Governor really is calling in. They might just be trying to keep people listening as much as possible, as I bet they’re getting great ratings numbers off this.
UPDATE: 1232pm Now they are playing some kind of hockey song about being a badass in the wild, wild west.
UPDATE: They say that in just a matter of moments Governor Palin is calling in.
UPDATE: 1234pm CST — they have a man pretending to be Sarah Palin, talking about doing a 5 mile run. Then they start playing the 80s song “Sarah”. And then they start playing some kind of country music song about a guy divorcing his wife, the song is “I Pray For You”.
UPDATE: 1238pm They’re taking a break again…and not mentioning Governor Palin again…it’s very strange how they are going back and forth like this. I think they are just playing games. Now they’re talking about Toyota trucks at some dealership.
UPDATE: 1242pm CST It’s fun listening to the Alaskan commercials, but I think Bob & Mark are playing games.
UPDATE: 1247pm a young girl in North Carolina said she called into the station yesterday and asked if Governor Palin was going to call in today, and the station wouldn’t tell her either way. Bob & Mark then said that when Governor Palin DOES announce, she will do it on their show, but now they are implying she won’t call in today.
UPDATE: 100pm CST The Bob & Mark Show was just playing games. Governor Palin had never agreed to be on. This was just morning show radio “hijinks”.
Does anyone have knowledge of where Governor Sarah Palin will be on Friday 9/16/11 and Saturday 9/17/11?
9/16/11 = Constitution Day, observed
9/17/11 = actual Constitution Day
Nicole Coulter over at C4P calls Governor Palin’s motor coach “the DaVinci Bus” because of clues she finds pointing to a presidential run, woven into the bus’s decorations.
Will Governor Palin choose a date with Constitution-related meaning for her announcement…or will it come on a day when she just wants to drive Obama and the Left the craziest (ie, right before he makes a big speech or attends some event he wants attention devoted to).
The next GOP presidential debate is on September 22nd, 2011.
I wonder if Governor Palin will choose to announce just after this upcoming debate, which would have then forced the media to spend three debates grilling the other candidates, before Governor Palin becomes their sole target.
Is there any historic date you can think of between September 23rd and the beginning of October?
If the Governor does not announce before September 22nd, it means Rick Perry will be diminished by yet another poor debate performance, which seems to be Governor Palin’s plan in all of this.
But, I do wonder if she has any events booked this Friday and Saturday.
Does anyone know?
After last night’s GOP presidential debate on CNN (sponsored by the Tea Party, live from Tampa, Florida), Governor Sarah Palin appeared on Greta van Susteran’s “On the Record” with her commentary on the declared candidates. Though the Governor’s supporters have known she’s running for president for some time (and, has in fact been running since 2008, the media will eventually see in retrospect), there were 5 clear clues in her FOX appearance last night that the Governor’s soon to announce her candidacy, though on her own timetable.
TAKE ACTION: What are the most common attacks on Governor Palin you hear lately? We need to identify and then refudiate them
Please help with an ongoing project to give people an idea of how to refudiate the consistent attacks made on Governor Palin by the Left, the GOP Cocktail Party establishment, and the agenda-driven media.
Can you name an attack you hear people make on the Governor, most often without any sort of evidence to back it up, or real explanation from the attacker why he feels this way?
Example: “She’s a quitter!”
Example: “She’s too polarizing!”
Example: “She’s unelectable!”
This afternoon, Justin’s helping me design some Debate Prep Cards I want to make that will tackle every one of these attacks you can list for me. I’ll take the time to make these as bullet points so that people can save them, print them out, and maybe cut them into slips they can keep in a recipe box to start preparing them to be surrogate speakers for the Governor after she officially announces her campaign.
I’ve have more information in an essay for each one, but I figure the cards would be a nice study aid just like I used all throughout school for most of my classes. You can keep little cards like this in your bag or in your purse, and whenever you have some time to kill, you can flip through them and start formulating your own “elevator speeches” for how you would convey these focused bursts of information to strangers in the few minutes you might have in front of them responding to one of the attacks on the Governor in person.
Things like this are hard work to put together, but with your help we can hopefully start stealing the Left’s thunder by neutralizing the attacks before they have a real chance to stick.
Can you think of a common attack you notice being repeated often and list a response you have found effective in refudiating it?
As always, be creative, so we can win one for the Saracuda with this!
UPDATE: My friend CJK write in with the following additional request for good, solid Palin-related information:
Saw your latest thread asking for help with refudiating (repudiating?) common barbs heard against Gov. Palin as a potential candidate. I’ve read Going Rogue and America By Heart, but have never seen a truly factual, objective short bio of Gov. Palin from which an individual might glean sufficient facts to develop the two-minute “elevator pitches” needed to respond to the standard clap-trap objections to Gov. Palin. During a quick scan of bios on the internet (Googled “Sarah Palin Bio”) it became apparent that most of these attempt, in some subtle and some not-so-subtle ways, to make Gov. Palin look bad. That includes the one on Wikipedia, which is one of the places where many of the less-informed appear to go to get their info on many subjects. It occurs to me that we really need to find (or draft up) a factual, objective short bio of Gov. Palin for use during the 2012 campaign, and as a source for the two-minute “elevator pitches.” Do you know whether any such short bios exist, or whether any are being written? Thanks again for all you do!
Love and prayers,
Do you know of an excellent, short bio of the Governor? If not what should be included and I will write one that can be told in an elevator speech.
TAKE ACTION: American Artemis Project, Round Two – creating images of Sarah Palin as a skilled and fearless huntress
The mental image I have of Governor Sarah Palin is as an American Artemis — a formidable and fearless huntress encamped in the pristine north, pursuing her prey with stealth and determination.
I’m asking all artists and creative types to help develop some campaign images of Governor Palin depicting her as such, surrounded by Alaskan animals that represent aspects of her presidential platform.
The idea is this:
* to show Governor Palin as an Artemis-like figure in the middle of the Alaskan woods, with Mount Denali or other mighty wonders in the background.
* The Governor has a bow raised, with arrow drawn, pointing towards Washington. Since guns are so easy for the Left to exploit emotionally and mock, I want the hunting images of the Governor to use the bow and arrow since the general public does not associate this with crime and violence, just hunting and skilled marksmanship.
* The picture used for the Governor’s head is the one above…a great shot of her full of vigor and spirit, looking forward, and in command
* I like the stance of the Artemis illustration in the center, but the Governor would need to be shown in modern gear that flatters her, and not a Grecian toga (which would look Halloween-y).
* I also like the animals around the Artemis in that shot.
It would be great to have a burst of Alaskan animals at the Governor’s command ready to head to Washington with her, as if she’s inspiring them to help the country too.
In her recent speeches, the Governor has been using a lot of “R” words like “Rebuild”, “Restore”, “Renew”, “Return”, “Replace”, etc.
I wonder if we could work up an Alaskan animal to match each of these themes:
Bald Eagle = Restore American pioneer spirit, since you can get more symbolic of the American spirit than the bald eagle
Grizzly Bear = Rebuild the economy, like a Mamma Grizzly ferociously providing for her cubs by taking on all threats to their food sources and survival. Don’t mess with that grizzly, and don’t get in the way of Governor Palin when she’s focused on getting the country back on track
Wolves = Return to a respect for federalism, which is reminiscent of a pack of wolves being comprised of strong, individual members who work together for the good of the pack, but are still separate entities the way our federal and state governments cooperate, but Washington should not control the state Governors like zombie puppets or slaves
Moose =Replace Obama and force the Left out of power, much like a big bull moose that comes into a territory and forces whatever was standing there out of its way
Caribou = Renew development of natural resources, just like the caribou are such a valuable and well-managed food resource in Alaska
Polar Bear = to combat the notion that the Governor is “too polarizing” to be President, which is a pejorative aimed at her by both the Left and the GOP Cocktail Party establishment
What other animals would you include in the above?
What other “R” words have you gleaned from Governor Palin’s recent speeches we could represent with animals from Alaska?
I do, of course, realize that public schools stopped teaching mythology a while ago, since the focus is just getting those poor children in these classrooms to pass ridiculous proficiency tests, so the kids no longer learn much history or have any sense of culture. I am aware that the concept of the Grecian Artemis, the goddess of the hunt, is alien to a lot of people as a result. But, not everything in a campaign has to cater to the lowest common denominator. Not everything can or should be a creepy, tri-colored, poster with a single word on it like “Hope” or “Change”.
I’d like to see Governor Palin’s supporters raise the bar of political art with something really interesting and creative that takes the words and themes of her speeches and brings them to life through artistic representations of Alaskan wildlife and scenery.
Maybe it’s not something the official campaign will ever promote…but it’s a good theme for the Governor’s supporters to run with if we want to connect with that portion of the population that enjoyed watching the Governor hunt on “Sarah Palin’s Alaska” and know just how connected she is to strategically bringing down prey…both to fill her freezer and feed her family, as well as to take down her opponents in the political wilderness as well.
Here’s the address(es) I found online for Governor Palin (please correct me in comments if you know of any better ones, but these seem to be the most often cited mailing addresses for her permanent office…they are NOT her home addresses or seemingly private in any way):
The Office of Sarah Palin
1140 W. Parks Hwy
Wasilla, Alaska 99687
— or —
Governor Sarah Palin
PO Box 871235
Wasilla, Alaska 99687
You can read the full letter for a detailed account of why I think Governor Palin’s being called to duty when the country needs her most, in much the way retired General George Washington was asked to return to a leadership position when he was the best choice to lead the country in a crisis.
History is being made all around us, folks. The 2012 election is not just about defeating Obama and the Left, but it’s also about taking on the permanent political class that’s comprised of BOTH parties (the Cocktail GOP establishment I write often about and the fools at the DNC who’ve allowed the Left to take over the country).
Governor Sarah Palin is the only person I can see, short of Congressman Allen West and a handful of other fearless patriots, who has the fortitude and strategic determination to do what needs to be done and face down the Left, the Cocktail Party GOP establishment, and everything the agenda-driven media will do to secure Barack Obama a second term.
I’d like to see Allen West as Governor Palin’s running mate next year, because with President Palin in the Oval Office and Vice President West traveling the country clobbering the Left and permanent political class in his own way, Americans would at last have an executive team that intends to GET STUFF DONE.
I want to ask you on a very personal level to write to Governor Palin today and ask her to run for President.
Give her a reason you want her to run and tell her briefly what it would mean to her.
Write down one thing you are personally willing to do to help her campaign if she’d agree to answer this clarion call.
I pledge to write essays and “TAKE ACTION! items” like this one giving people every idea I can think of to help defeat the Left and encourage everyone who reads my work to do all they can to defeat Obama, the Left, and all those that enable them.
What can you do to use your own talents for this cause?
Think about it. Pray on it a little. Then get out a postcard and tell Governor Palin about it.
You can write a full letter if you like, but a postcard works best, I think. Justin created the HB postcard pictured above just for this purpose and I printed it out and sent it to Governor Palin today (so, technically, she’s getting both a letter AND a postcard from a supporter here in Boystown, but you can do either, or, or both as well if you like).
I think it would be especially fun for you to send the Governor postcards depicting your home towns, the states you live in, or other things that mean something to you.
Write the Governor, ask her to run for president to rescue this country and restore the pioneer spirit that will make American strong again.
Think about this: if you write her, maybe she’ll never read it, maybe she’ll decide not to run anyway, but you’ll never have to regret NOT taking an opportunity to reach out to her and ask her to serve the country.
If you want her to run, you need to ask her to do so. She’d be putting her life on hold and committing her entire family to great stress and challenges with a presidential run.
If you really want her to put herself through this, take a few moments out of your day to put a postcard into the mail to ask her to run for the presidency.
Chime in below with the text of postcards or letters you are sending or offer advice to people who don’t know what they should say. I put both my letter and my postcard to the Governor in this post so that you can see what I did, but I would love to hear what YOU wrote too.
Don’t forget to let the Governor know what you are going to do to help her campaign as well!
Next time someone says Governor Palin is polarizing…tell him, no, she’s the POLAR OPPOSITE OF OBAMA.
It just occurred to me today that the next time someone tells you “Sarah Palin can’t win because she’s too polarizing!” you should look that person in the eyes, wink, and say, “No, Sarah Palin is the POLAR OPPOSITE OF OBAMA and that’s exactly why she’ll win, you betcha!”.
The “you betcha” always rattles these people, and it’s so fun to say.
But, in all seriousness, the Governor is indeed the polar opposite of Obama.
And, as I’ve been writing about for three and a half years now on this site, “polarizing” is a codeword for “bitch” that the Left uses to malign, berate, and ostracize female politicians who won’t shut up and go away when told.
“Bitch”, in my world, is not a pejorative in this context — it’s a prerequisite for ever getting anything done in politics, which is dominated by the old-boys-network of the permanent political class on both sides of the aisle.
I love the designs over at Essex & Orange that celebrate being “polarizing” Alaska-style, where polls indeed start rising when voters believe a candidate for office will actually do what she says, not back down, and be the POLAR OPPOSITE of the arrogant and incompetent people who got us into the nation’s financial mess to begin with.
“You say bitch like it’s a bad thing”.
“You say I’m polarizing, well I must be doing something right then”.
“You want to see polls a-rising? Keep being the Polar Opposite of Obama and you’ll do just fine!”
Three Reasons Hillary Clinton Will Never Be Barack Obama’s VP in 2012 — and an Implication for President Palin in 2016
HillBuzz.org was originally conceived as a Hillary Clinton 2008 presidential campaign supporters’ site. Though our focus has shifted since then, and everyone involved with HB has left the Democrat Party for good at this point, HillBuzz Founder and Editor-in-Chief Kevin DuJan still follows Hillary Clinton’s career with great interest and appreciates her serving the country as the sole grown up in the entire Obama administration. Here’s Kevin’s Top Three Reasons Hillary Clinton Will Never Be Barack Obama’s VP in 2012 (So Stop Fantasizing About It):
When I think of Governor Palin, I picture her most as a huntress.
Strong, independent, resourceful, determined, brave, bold, and forever vigilant.
I see her set against a backdrop of pristine nature and frontier wonder — a champion who’ll protect these resources while harvesting their bounty.
She’s an American Artemis, called at a time of crisis to the Herculean labors required to set all that’s gone wrong with the Left’s “Lightbringer” and False Pharaoh at the helm.
I would love to create an image of Governor Palin that conjures this American Artemis spirit in one graphic — or use images of the Governor that depict these themes visually.
* The abundant natural wonders of Alaskan wildlife around her
* The fortitude and strength she exudes
* The way the Governor holds her ground and stares down her foes
Please chime in on this thread with your thoughts on this American Artemis theme. This is a brainstorming session, so I want your opinions creatively on what could really work as an image to run for her during the campaign. This is a subtle branding effort on our part to reveal all the things we know about the Governor that perhaps casual political observers miss.
The Left, and its agenda-driven media propagandists, have aggressively fostered an unflattering image of the Governor that we can indeed effectively counter by encapsulating her strengths into one solid line of character branding visuals.
I see the need, but lack the artistic and creative eye to make this reality.
Can you offer your input and ideas to percolate this American Artemis theme a little further?
