  • Poll: Romney tops Palin in Alaska

    Even after watching her preferred candidate surprisingly triumph in Alaska’s Senate race, Sarah Palin’s home state is no sure thing for the former governor as she trails former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney in a hypothetical 2012 matchup, according to a new poll. Only 17 percent of the 805 Alaska Republicans surveyed by Public Policy Polling said they would back Palin in a 2012 GOP primary, the same percentage who voiced support for former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee. Romney led the field, garnering 20 percent. “Fortunately for Sarah Palin, Alaska decides few convention delegates, and coming more than a month after...
  • Vanity Fair On Sarah Palin: She Has A Terrible Temper, Is A Bad Tipper

    Two years after entering the nation’s klieg lights Sarah Palin is the subject of a detailed and sometimes scathing profile in next month’s Vanity Fair. The portrait that emerges is one of a willful, often-paranoid, sometimes vengeful woman with a terrible temper and a knack for folksy soundbites, who knows her strengths, saw her moment in the spotlight and has grabbed onto it with both hands. Or as Vanity Fair’s Michael Joseph Gross puts it “anywhere you peel back the skin of Sarah Palin’s life, a sad and moldering strangeness lies beneath.”

  • Jacksonville Journal: Sluggish ticket sales move Palin event to smaller theater (ROFL)

    Jacksonville Times Union ^ | 8/18/10 | staff
    Slow ticket sales have bumped Sarah Palin's appearance next week in Jacksonville to a smaller venue. "An Evening of Hope with Sarah Palin" was moved from the 2,936-seat Moran Theater to the 609-seat Terry Theater. Both are part of the Times-Union Center for the Performing Arts. The event is a fundraiser for Heroic Media, a faith-based nonprofit group that helps women facing unexpected pregnancy. It is scheduled to start at 6 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 26. Mark Nelson, Florida director for Heroic Media, said the event was moved to the Terry Theatre because there weren't enough tickets sold to hold it...
  • Palin's hot streak goes cold

    Politico ^ | 8/11/10 | Andy Barr
    For a time, it seemed that Sarah Palin was on a hot streak. Her Republican primary endorsements were generally winners as she racked up favors, praise and credit for the results in across the country. There's still no doubt that a Palin endorsement raises a candidate's profile, significantly. But now, after a string of defeats for Palin endorsees, the question has to be asked: Was Palin’s brand really so strong that she was swinging primaries in her favor? “I have said pretty consistently that these endorsements are fairly meaningless,” said Republican strategist John Feehery. “They were meaningless when Palin was...
  • Jack Kingston: Sarah Palin should ‘butt out’ of state races

    On “America’s Morning News” – a web-based talk show sponsored by Human Events – U.S. Rep. Jack Kingston was drawn into a discussion of Georgia’s Republican runoff for governor. Would you have preferred that Sarah Palin butt out of it, Kingston was asked? “I wish she will,” Kingston said. But never mind the grammar – it was live radio. He continued: “Because what’s she’s doing is dividing the Republican party at a time when we don’t need to be divided. “Because in a case like this, really what people were saying – ‘Well, she’s endorsing Karen Handel because she’s a...

    Variety ^ | 8/9/10 | Mike Schneider
    Levi Johnston is setting his sights on the dysfunctional family business. Johnston will run for mayor of Wasilla, Alaska -- yes, the same job that propelled Sarah Palin to governor of Alaska (and later, the vice presidential nomination) -- in a new reality project being pitched by Stone and Co. "Loving Levi: The Road to the Mayor's Office" will center on Johnston's newfound fame as the baby daddy to Palin's grandson Tripp. Johnston will trade on that notoriety to make his run for the Wasilla City Hall -- when he's not pursuing a career in Hollywood, of course. Stone and...

    Will Kate Gosselin hurt Sarah Palin's political career when the two moms appear together on Palin's new TLC show in November? Slideshows: Palin's Changing Looks | Two Years Of Kate’s Changing Looks As silly as that sounds, the pundits are starting to talk after TLC announced late Friday that Gosselin would appear on "Sarah Palin's Alaska" sometime in November, after the fall general elections. Palin is a presumptive presidential candidate for 2012 and has already released one video that appears to be a campaign advertisement. In the time before the 2012 election, Palin is writing books, doing the TLC series...
  • Hmmm: Palin sends out fundraising letter … for the RNC

    Hot Air ^ | 8/6/10 | allahpundit
    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...

    Hey, all, do you remember Sarah Palin? I know it’s been awhile, but think back. Palin was John McCain’s running mate in 2008. Ah, now you remember. Well, as we all know, after the election, Palin vanished from public view which was too bad because she really seemed like an interesting character. Fortunately, TLC has announced that the famously spotlight-shunning former governor’s new TV show, Sarah Palin’s Alaska, will premiere this November. Finally we’ll get some Palin back in our lives! For those of you who haven’t been following the progress of the program, it’s “a new eight-part documentary series...

    In a surprising move given her reputation as a political outsider, Sarah Palin is helping the Republican National Committee raise money ahead of November's elections. Palin has attached her name to a letter and survey being mailed to RNC donors soliciting contributions for the committee's Victory 2010 program, a nationwide get-out-the-vote effort. "Millions of Americans are expressing their frustration with the state of our government. I join them and seek to return our country to greatness," reads the letter, obtained by CNN Friday.

    First it was the blogger, then it was the lobbyist … could a South Carolina lawmaker be the next Palmetto politico accused of amorous activity with GOP gubernatorial nominee Nikki Haley? That’s the story numerous lobbyists are relating to FITS – a narrative that includes allegations of at least one specific encounter between Haley and S.C. Rep. Thad Viers (R-Myrtle Beach) at a 2006 legislative conference in San Francisco, California. Both Viers and Haley attended the conference – which was sponsored by the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) – and both were married at the time. Haley is still married,...
  • Sarah Palin is not 'committed to running' for president in 2012, White House bid not her 'focus'

    Sarah Palin may be a popular pick for Republicans in 2012, but the former Alaska Gov. is staying cagey on her presidential plans. "I've never committed to running for president," Palin said on Fox News Sunday. "That's not where my focus is." Instead, Palin says she is devoting her attention to getting Republicans back in office this fall.
  • Sarah Palin Supports Arizona SB1070 - But Still Supports Amnesty For Illegal Aliens [OLD INTERVIEW]

    Digger's Realm ^ | April 2010 | staff
    Sarah Palin went on the Sean Hannity show last night and did an interview where she states that she supports the Arizona law that will question suspected illegal aliens for their legal status papers if they are stopped for a crime. There was one little tidbit that Palin let slip though that I am sure many people missed. Referring to illegal aliens Palin said "many of them want to come over here to find that Pathway to Citizenship they want". Huh? Did I just miss something? I could have swore that in October 1998 Sarah Palin told Univision she was...

    Daily Caller ^ | 7/26/10 | John Schlimm
    Reports surfaced recently that Kate Gosselin and her brood of eight (is enough already!) were seen with film crews in tow heading into the Alaskan wilderness to go camping with Sarah Palin. HUH?! Now I’m having a really tough time trying to figure out this one. To be exact, I cannot for the life of me pinpoint who is using who here. What I am fairly certain of is if TLC, which serves as home base to both the Gosselin Empire and the forthcoming guaranteed blockbuster Sarah Palin’s Alaska, is bringing these two power chicks together; then someone is undoubtedly...

  • After Palin Endorsement, N.H. Voters Sour On Ayotte For Senate

    CQ ^ | 7/27/10 | staff
    Expect to see a lot of analysis about what's going on in New Hampshire after this poll. Public Policy Polling looked at the Senate race and found a striking change since Republican Kelly Ayotte scored an endorsement from Sarah Palin. As a former attorney general, Ayotte has already run statewide and voters considering who they want to succeed retiring Sen. Judd Gregg ought to be at least somewhat familiar with her. But the Mama Grizzly seal of approval seems to have raised some doubts about Ayotte with the biggest bloc of voters in the state. Ayotte's lead over Rep. Paul...

    At 85, Phyllis Schlafly has still got game. The anti-feminist founder of the conservative Eagle Forum -- who counts Barry Goldwater's 1964 White House run and the 1982 death of the Equal Rights Amendment as exquisite victories and the "internationalist" presidencies of George Bush 41 and 43 as "not helpful to the Republican party" -- hasn't mellowed one whit. That she made abundantly clear Thursday afternoon at the Conservative Political Action Committee conference in Washington. Lord knows she still looks great, the poufy blonde hair perfectly lacquered, the fitted tweed jacket tricked out with her signature golden eagle brooch and...
