  • Ugh: Greta and Sarah Palin rally behind Tea Party poser Orrin Hatch

    I just read a very bizarre blog post about entrenched incumbent Utah Sen. Orrin Hatch by Fox News anchor Greta van Susteren and then watched an equally distressing interview van Susteren conducted last night with Sarah Palin regarding Hatch. First, the title of van Susteren’s blog post: “Is someone trying to manipulate the UTAH Tea Party vote unfairly away from Senator Orrin Hatch?” Van Susteren absurdly suggests that dark, sinister, unnamed, and uninformed forces in Utah with outside backing are somehow trying to take away Hatch’s seat through nefarious means. She’s clearly talking about D.C.-based fiscal conservative groups like FreedomWorks...

    Palin: “Could I Support Somebody Like Mitt Romney? Yeah”…DES MOINES, Iowa — 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin said Friday that she still hasn’t decided if she’s going to run for president. Palin is also undecided about whom she would endorse if she ultimately decided against entering the race. Swarmed by media and supporters at the Iowa State Fair, the former governor of Alaska told The Daily Caller that she’s not concerned that Mitt Romney is considered the frontrunner at this time. “No, nothing worries me at this point,” Palin told TheDC. “Could I support somebody like Mitt Romney?...

    Sarah Palin and Rick Perry Ready to Challenge Michele Bachmann and Mitt Romney? By Thomas Costello July 12, 2011 12:01 PM GMT Rick Perry could be close to announcing his candidacy for GOP presidential nomination just hours after it was revealed that Sarah Palin could also be ready to announce her nomination for the presidential nomination. The decision from Rick Perry comes off the back of a report that suggests Republican donors are not willing to back Michele Bachmann or Mitt Romney and they want both Sarah Palin and Rick Perry to stand to give the Republican party the greatest...

    July 3, 2011 2 Republicans Open Door to Increases in Revenue By JOHN M. BRODER WASHINGTON — Two senior Republicans said Sunday that they might be open to raising new government revenue as part of a deal to resolve the dispute over the federal debt ceiling, but they warned that there was little time to enact a comprehensive deal. One of the senators, John Cornyn of Texas, said he would consider eliminating some tax breaks and corporate subsidies in the context of changes in the tax code, provided there was not an overall increase in taxes. “I think it’s clear...

    You spent three years trying to hide this, Sarah. You failed. The email account of Aug. 29, 2008, the day John McCain announced Palin as his running mate, tells a tale of jubilant shock and amazement from Palin devotees… “Wow governor! Just watched you on TV!” wrote budget director Karen Rehfeld. “You knocked their socks off!” “Can you believe it!” Palin replied. “He told me yesterday — it moved fast! Pray! I love you.” Vice President Dick Cheney called the governor’s office requesting a call back. “Talked to him. Thank you – you rock – i love you!!!” Palin wrote...

    The Wall Street Journal ^ | June 3, 2011 | Kimberley A. Strassel
    Sarah Palin's bus tour dominated this week's news, raising to a fever pitch the question of whether she will, or will not, run for president. The better question: Does she have what it takes to become president? Doing that sort of straight analysis is almost impossible today, given the violent emotion Mrs. Palin inspires from critics and supporters. The former Alaska governor is no longer a mere politician; she is a symbol. Her fans have come to view her as the living antithesis of everything they find offensive—the mainstream media, cultural elites, out-of-touch Washington. She so embodies this role that...

    Trump: Palin wants me to run By Laura Donovan - The Daily Caller While catching up over pizza slices in Times Square, former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin advised billionaire Donald Trump to “get back” in the presidential races, according to the “Celebrity Apprentice” host. During a Wednesday “Fox and Friends” interview, Trump told host Gretchen Carlson that he and Palin discussed a myriad of topics. “Did she try to encourage you to get back in the race because you were, in fact, a couple weeks ago saying you were sticking with Celebrity Apprentice, instead?” asked Carlson. “Well, she’d love...

    Sarah Palin came out swinging tonight, saying that Newt should stand behind his words and not apologize no matter what the media says about it. She even noted that he wouldn’t have apologized if the media hadn’t gotten in a huff about what he said. Also, she indicated that she is still seriously considering a run in 2012, but she is still looking at the field. What I liked about her comments was that she noted that her running for President would be about fighting the left and fighting for the country, not being in the limelight for the punditry...

    I will go to hell and back for Sarah Palin, literally. Why? Because this woman loves America as much as I do. She wakes up everyday, works hard, and does her best to do what is right for America and her family. She is truly an eloquent, inspirational person that conveys the greatness of America and displays dutiful American exceptionalism. Though extraneous, the Liberal mainstream media despises Palin because she isn’t afraid to speak out and express her concerns with the direction this country is taking. She has the efficacy, the influence, and a spine that’s built of steel. Even...

    Our good friends over at Conservatives4Palin have come up with a good solid list of 47 reasons Gov. Sarah Palin is qualified to be President, all in honor of her 47th birthday. Here are just a few: 1) She won’t perjure herself by taking the Presidential oath of office like many of her potential opponents. 2) She has 9 years of executive experience, more than 3 times as much as the current President. As Governor, she held the 2nd most powerful gubernatorial office in the country. 3)She knows how to budget. In her years as Governor, she reduced the state...

    At a reception and dinner attended by fifty conservative movers and shakers, Sarah Palin implicitly compared herself to President Ronald Reagan. At the same time she suggested that she is mulling a Presidential run in 2012. According to Politico: "Speaking to a group of well-connected Republicans at a private dinner in Florida this week, Sarah Palin implicitly addressed questions about her own electability by noting that critics also said Ronald Reagan couldn't win in 1980, three attendees told POLITICO. "Palin, at an event organized by the conservative magazine Newsmax, told the right-wing crowd that those who don't have the same...

    The Hill runs a report crediting Sarah Palin for her many Republic primary victories. Before conservatives take too much pleasure in such news, read how she is credited with helping sweep John McCain to victory. Palin traveled to Arizona and made numerous campaign appearances with McCain, bringing him the Tea Party creds he so desperately needed to undercut the fact that he is a nearly three-decades-long, left-leaning Washington insider. That Palin chose to conveniently back McCain over conservative former U.S. Rep. J.D. Hayworth is a truth that should not soon be forgotten. Her help, McCain’s falsely running to the right,...

    I wish my fellow conservatives would wake up to the charade being peddled by Sarah Palin. Many of the same people who (rightly) derided the Republican presidential candidacy of John McCain are rallying behind Palin, despite the fact that she identified herself with McCain in 2008 and continues to defend his re-election bid against more conservative Tea Party challengers. (snip) Actions speak louder than words. Palin is not opposing the establishment; she’s endorsing people who she thinks will win so she can make herself look good and recruit allies for personal gain. This type of crony big government Republicanism is...

    Remember four months ago when she was demanding that they remove her name from an RNC fundraising invitation to donors? Some pol-watchers at the time took that as a sign that she was trying to distance herself from the Republican brand. (“Who wouldn’t want to be sort of seen as more of an outsider and that’s how she’s positioned herself.”) Fast-forward to today and suddenly she’s signing letters on their behalf. What gives? Two theories. One: She’s turned out to be such a good soldier and is so favorably disposed to Michael Steele that she’s willing to do a fundraising...

    It is good to criticize fanaticism, esp. BLIND fanaticism, but be equally weary of the fanatical Palin haters that parade around this site. Regardless of how some mask their true wishes for Palin in "constructive critic" guise, there are plenty of writers and thinkers out there who offer honest critique of Palin while having her and our country's best interests in mind and therefore want her to come out WINNING. Most of the FR trolls who post the latest Palin hit-piece of the day could care less for Palin and take joy everytime she supposedly "falls." To these types, Palin...
  • Piling On With Palin: Tea Party Express Backs Murkowski Rival

    CNN reports that Tea Party Express is joining Sarah Palin in backing the longshot who wants to unseat Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski in the Republican primary. Though lawyer Joe Miller, shown at left, has far less name identity in the state, Tea Party Express will pour in people and money to try to "level the playing field," reports CNN's Shannon Travis. It will be interesting to see whether Republicans in Alaska view the endorsement as verification of Miller's conservative credentials or just a continuation of a family feud that started when Palin booted the senator's father, ex-senator and ex-Gov. Frank...

    The Washington Post's The Fix ^ | June 4, 2010 | Chris Cillizza
    After a stretch in which an endorsement from Sarah Palin was considered a rarity, the former Alaska governor has become something of an endorsement machine as of late. In the past week alone, she has endorsed four candidates, ranging from a tea party contender for Senate in her home state of Alaska to the GOP establishment favorite for Iowa governor. Palin has backed both clear winners and decided long-shots; she's weighed in on behalf of "mama grizzlies," but an extra X chromosome doesn't necessarily mean an automatic endorsement (see Hutchison, Kay Bailey). Some candidates (such as former Redskins tight end...
