  • Sarah Palin 'willing' to run for office again

    Washington Post ^ | 11/16/2015 | By Elise Viebeck
    Watch out, world: Sarah Palin said she's open to running for political office again. The former Alaska governor touched on a possible return to politics during a wide-ranging interview on CBS's "Sunday Morning." "This will always be home," she said of Wasilla, Ala. "I would know that I could always come back here." "You're willing to run again?" the interviewer asked. "I'd be willing. That's a good way to put it," Palin said. The former Republican vice presidential nominee left the political scene after the GOP's White House defeat in 2008. Apart from endorsements here and there, her primary political...

    Business Insider ^ | 10/26/2015 | William M. Daley
    When The Post's front page declares: "Republicans are on the verge of ceasing to function as a national party," it's time to ask: How did this come to pass? You can choose from a litany of insurrections, government shutdowns and other self-inflicted wounds. But this year's carnival-like GOP presidential primary makes one event, in retrospect, stand out as a crucial turning point on the road to upheaval: the 2008 embrace of then-Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin to be a heartbeat from the presidency. Palin's blatant lack of competence and preparedness needs no belaboring. What's critical is that substantive, serious Republican leaders...

    Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin shared the stage at yesterdayís anti-Iran nuclear rally in Washington, D.C., but apparently the one-time allies no longer see eye to eye. During his post-mortem radio broadcast about the event, Beck had this to say about Palinís speech: ďIím going to say it. I donít care what Sarah Palin says any more. Sarah Palin has become a clown.

    The Fresno Bee ^ | November 9, 2014 | David Brooks, New York Times columnist
    Every party in opposition goes a little crazy. For Republicans in the early Obama era, insanity took the form of the Sarah Palin spasm. Veteran politicos took the former Alaska governor seriously as a national figure. Republican primary voters nominated the likes of Todd Akin, Christine O'Donnell and Sharron Angle. Glenn Beck seemed important enough to hold a big rally at the Lincoln Memorial. Fortunately, serious parties eventually pull back from the fever swamps. Thatís whatís happening to the Republican Party. It has re-established itself as the nationís dominant governing party. Republicans now control 69 of 99 state legislative bodies....

    <p>If you havenít already seen, Sarah Palin†has endorsed†Bill Walker and Byron Mallottís Independent-Democrat ďUnityĒ ticket in the Alaska gubernatorial race over Republican incumbent Sean Parnell. She endorses the Independent-Democrat ticket over the man who was her own lieutenant governor.</p> <p>Because of this, as far as Republican politics are concerned, Iím finished with Sarah Palin. I have nothing but respect for her has a wife, mother, and grandmother. I pray that, should I ever be faced with the prospect of having to raise a child with Down Syndrome or any other disability, I would have the wisdom to make the kind of decision she made with Trig and that I could bear that cross so gracefully. I must also add, in light of recent events, that I find the mediaís treatment of the family brawl despicable, and†unlike Carroll Costello, I find assault no laughing matter.</p>

    The villains were the jerks who pushed Bristol Palin and the members of the media, like Carol Costello, who wear their liberal bias as a badge of honor Since she burst on the national scene in 2008, the national media has enjoyed poking fun and mischaracterizing former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin and her family. The main reason for their obsession is that Palin is an unabashed conservative who is articulate and popular with millions of Americans. From the reporting about her supposed shopping spree during the 2008 race for Vice President to the continuing rumors about her marriage, the media...

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)CNNís Carol Costello apologized on Thursday for joking about a police recording of Bristol Palin. "Over the past few days I have been roundly criticized for joking about a brawl involving the Palin family. In retrospect, I deserve such criticism and would like to apologize," Costello said in a statement to POLITICO. On Wednesday, before playing a tape in which Bristol Palin describes an alleged altercation at a party in Wasilla, Alaska, Costello said, ďThis is quite possibly the best minute and a half of audio weíve ever come across. Well, come across in a long time anyway.Ē In the...

    No liberally-biased media, of course. I guess the concern over violence against women from those on the left doesn't happen when you're a Palin. Rothman at Hot Air: The overwhelming sense of superiority some in the press feel toward the Palins simply clouds their better judgment. Costello would surely see the error of her ways if she were to read her disparate reactions to these two strikingly similar events, but, in the heat of the moment, she did not see Sarah Palinís daughter as a women who had endured a physical assault; she saw her as a caricature worthy...

    Klingenmeyer told police he was considering filing charges and was "angry that the Palins had showed up and were causing problems," according to the report. He told police he had asked Bristol to leave and she responded, "Who the f*** are you?" Klingemeyer told her he owned the home and Bristol said she didn't believe him and "she will kick his a**," the police report states. Klingenmeyer said that's when Bristol first punched him and he then said he told her to hit "him again if it makes her feel better and she does," according to the document. After five...
