    The Christain Science Monitor ^ | January 26, 2013 | Brad Knickerbocker
    When the history of US politics in the early 21st century is written, two figures will stand out: Barack Obama and Sarah Palin. The election of Mr. Obama to the highest elective office – the first African-American to win the presidency – did not necessarily signal a new era of post-racial politics. But coming just a generation after federal troops in the South (and a federal judge in Boston) were necessary to desegregate public schools, it was a huge milestone. Sarah Palin was not the first woman to win a major political party’s vice presidential nomination; that was US Rep....

    *snip* The PAC also paid $4,500 to reserve space at Channelside Bay Mall in Tampa, Fla., near the site of the Republican National Convention, suggesting that Palin plans to have an independent presence at the event separate from the formal proceedings.
  • Ann Coulter’s “Novelty Candidate” Swipe at Sarah Palin

    Mitt Romney supporter Ann Coulter appeared on the ABC News Sunday show, “This Week,” hosted by former Clintonite George Stephanopoulos. Asked about Romney’s potential vice presidential picks, she said this (while seated at a table with former green jobs czar Van Jones, who served under the Biggest Novelty Candidate of Them All, Barack Obama): Ann Coulter: “You can’t have a novelty candidate, I think. That would ring too much like Sarah Palin. I agree with George Will that it be good to have little tea party excitement, and the odds-on favorite, I mean, certainly the betting is on Marco Rubio,...

    If Sarah is flirting, I was seduced a long time ago! For everyone who doesn't want Romney, this is huge! It's only in the modern era that Presidential nominations have been locked up before most American voters even tuned in. So this year, for the nation, the Republican Primary is kind of a return to older times, when all Americans counted, not just the few power brokers. The race has been a very rich blue blood from New England ( where he would not carry one state in the general election ) and a group of three, Newt, Rick and...

    Dear Sarah, I hope you are enjoying this year's fight for the Republican Presidential nomination. However, many of us out here are not pleased with the trashing, backed by Big Money, that Romney and his minions have heaped on Gingrich - mostly based on falsehoods. Romney and his backers in the MSM and the Old Guard of the Republican Party (Rove, McCain, Dole, et al) are trying their hardest to once again hoodwink the party base. In order to upset the establishment and to garner favor among those of us who are Tea-Partying conservatives, I would encourage you to send...

    (Stubborn Palin supporting vanity)
    Today I read several intriguing stories Palin had floated the idea that it's not too late for someone to enter the GOP race. Read one on Drudge, and saw a couple right here. Suddenly I felt that old optimism return. And would like to mention something as an open suggestion, I did not hear in the speculation and obligatory "she's not running" comments:
  • Pro-Palin group to run ads in Iowa

    (CNN) - A pro-Sarah Palin group will start airing TV ads Wednesday in Iowa, urging the former Alaska governor to reconsider her decision against running for president. Palin announced she wouldn't launch a White House bid in early October, ending years of speculation that the 2008 GOP vice presidential running mate might seek the Republican nomination in 2012. Conservatives4Palin, a large online group, made the ad buy for $6,500. The group said the ad will air for a week in Sioux City, with spots during ABC's "Good Morning America" and "Dr. Oz," as well as during local news programs in...

    The absolutely incredible and historic opportunity presented to you has now been squandered. Governor, what was the point? You accomplished great things (for which I thank you) after resigning but keep in mind that the reason for the support was that people believed you were going to run for President yourself. Do you honestly believe that people and supporters surfaced for any other reason? You allowed the 'illusion' to continue knowing full well you were not going to run.. Some people uprooted their lives and some, spent their savings because of the belief they had in you. You would have...

    Is Door Closed on Palin? Seth Mandel August 10, 2011 In April, Human Events published a column offering ten reasons Sarah Palin will run for president. Last month, Fox News host Greta Van Susteren blogged about the seven reasons Palin will run for president. Then last week, Henry D’Andrea, writing in the Washington Times, offered three reasons he believes Palin will run for president.Though I’ve been skeptical all along that Palin would run, I would imagine the entrance of Rick Perry into the race will give Palin one very good reason not to. Perry’s candidacy has, as many others have...

    Governor Palin Retweets Article from Whitney Pitcher and PA4Palin That Notes How Rick Perry Almost Tripled Texas’ Total Debt This re-tweet from Governor Palin should pretty much put an end to the outrageous rumors that she’ll endorse Rick Perry. The great article from Whitney and PA4Palin re-tweeted by the Governor directly contrasts Governor Palin’s stellar record on debt and liabilities with the futile records of Mitt “peacetime” Romney and Rick Perry. If Palin is endorsing Perry, why is she re-tweeting an article that slams his inability to control what Governor Palin has described as the “foundation of destruction?” It’s also...

    I'm at risk of exceeding the vanity quotient at FR but here goes. I'm baling hay tonight with my Fred Flintone model 70AD baler, things are going reasonably well since it's just under 100* and the hay, though heavy is quite dry. My wife is working cleaning a house in town 'till 8 or so for extra money and my junior/senior boy who is working with some carpenter friends of mine sheeting a roof was mowing the yard (without complaint for a change) before he showers and goes to the nearby small town to spend time with friends for the...

    Former Alaska governor Sarah Palin has issued a stern warning to House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) as Boehner sits down with President Obama Sunday night to negotiate a raising of the debt ceiling: don't do it. Palin, in an interview appearing in Newsweek, “made it clear that she’s against any deal that raises the debt ceiling and would hold House Speaker John Boehner’s feet to the fire if he agreed to one” according to the magazine. “No, we have to cut spending. It is imperative, and I will be very, very disappointed if Boehner and the leaders of the Republican...
  • Does Michele Bachmann 'Walk the Talk?'

    It’s common these days to hear media talking heads refer to Michele Bachmann as the “Tea Party favorite” in the upcoming 2012 GOP primary race. Unlike Governor Palin who has always stated that the Tea Party doesn’t need one specific leader, Bachmann has tried to cast herself into such a role. She created a “Tea Party Caucus” in congress and gave the “Tea Party response” following Obama’s State of the Union Address last January. The Tea Party is comprised mainly of independent-minded small government activists who are sick and tired of the way Washington is operating. These are people who...

    It is one of those things that people see but do not see. Gov Palin has not been seen on Fox News now for 34 days. From news reports Gov Palin is one of their most high paid commenters and yet they have chosen to not have her on air for an entire month plus. Her last appearance on Fox News was on June 5th 2011 where she appeared on Fox News Sunday. That appearance was one in which the anchor Chris Wallace called her performance "boffo" and remarked that for the first time he saw Gov Palin as a...

    The Minnesota Independent ^ | July 8, 2011 | Jon Collins
    Minnesota congresswoman and Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann has been rocketing up polls in early primary and caucus states of Iowa and New Hampshire. Some grassroots activists, as the Iowa Independent reported, are convinced that former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin will jump into the race. How would that affect Bachmann’s shot at the nomination in these early-voting states? On the surface, Palin and Bachmann have much in common, including their support of the tea party movement. But the entry of Palin into the race wouldn’t necessarily hurt Bachmann more than most other candidates, University of Iowa Political Science Professor Tim...
  • The View - Bristol Palin (7-07-11)

    07/08/2011 12:56:22 PM PDT · by CondoleezzaProtege · 196 replies
    WHY THIS MATTERS POLITICALLY. There are two games Governor Palin is fighting: one is the battle to take control of her political narrative, the other is taking control of her PERSONAL narrative--and this includes everything surrounding her FAMILY. Having Bristol go on The View is BRILLIANT, and does more for raising Governor Palin's political profile and stature than one may think! With Bristol giving the whole scoop about the details surrounding her pregnancy, she takes the narrative of the "dirty details" and "dirty secrets" away from the mouths of Levi Johnston and rumor-makers in the press, who would try to...

    An open letter to Governor Sarah Palin: Dear Mrs. Palin, I'm writing this open letter to make the case for you to seriously consider a run for the Presidency in 2012. I believe that our nation is at a critical juncture, and the need for a strong, noble leader is desperate. Times like these are when great leaders often emerge. Winston Churchill in 1940, Ronald Reagan in 1980. Now, it's time for the great leader of the next decade, and I think you are the one we're looking to. We need the GOP to win the presidency next year, but...
  • Bachmann's husband got $137,000 in Medicaid funds

    While Rep. Michele Bachmann has forcefully denounced the Medicaid program for swelling the "welfare rolls," the mental health clinic run by her husband has been collecting annual Medicaid payments totaling over $137,000 for the treatment of patients since 2005, according to new figures obtained by NBC News. The previously unreported payments are on top of the $24,000 in federal and state funds that Bachmann & Associates, the clinic founded by Marcus Bachmann, a clinical therapist, received in recent years under a state grant to train its employees, state records show. The figures were provided to NBC News in response to...

    Barack Obama’s reelection is of primary importance to the Hollywood Left , therefore things of major Leftist import are on a bit of a hold. Firey visionaries of The Progressive New World Order are scheduled for casting their Hollywood scripts post-election lest the unthinkable happen and Sarah Palin become the 45th President of the United States. It is actually an infuriating time for Hollywood because of the “Wait” and “The Hold”. Since massive amounts of money are involved, the second stage of the Obama Nation really can’t explode until The Man is back in office. Educating Americans can be so...

    Michele Bachmann's efforts in 2007-8 to have Drug Dealer and Money Launderer Frank Vennes pardoned for his 1987 convictions have begun to receive some light scrutiny in the media. Some embarrassing details have emerged, including the fact that, while Bachmann was lobbying hard to secure a pardon for him from President Bush, Vennes himself was engaged in a brand new, massive $3.65 billion ponzi scheme, for which he was recently indicted by a Federal Grand Jury. Worse yet, Vennes and his family had donated money to Bachmann--a lot of money--in the 2006 and 2008 campaign cycles, $27,400 to be exact,...
