    Butt Book and anti-social media ^ | 4-26-2020 | Self (info question) for FReeper "techies"
    Question to the more savvy internet mavens here on FR: Been seeing several versions of postings and repostings/tweets of "I'm an ICU Nurse....and we're running out of bodybags" and PPE etc...coupled with detailing an element of known to be true modes of operation in dignified,respectful and safe honoring of the passing of nearest kin. Example: Using Zoom for remote "attendance" with loved ones passing (mandated by hospital infectious disease, guidance of CDC?). This is on the usual culprits- "butt" book, tweets from twits anti-social steered media. Is this a thing- have you seen this and can they be traced? These...

    She's got a good family, she's got a good husband, she's got awesome support, she's got God on her side, and I think people are envious of that. They're envious that she carries herself so well, that she's smart. There are lots of vicious people out there. ~ Bristol Palin

    I can’t wait to rush out tomorrow and buy my own DVD of The Undefeated … Meanwhile, Sandra Peppers has some great ideas for hosting viewing parties and more. This is a do-it-yourself effort. Everybody can play a valuable role. As Todd Palin commented on the interview with Steve Bannon last night … he was “blown away” at how much of Governor Palin’s record was covered, and covered well, in just a few short hours. Guest Submission by Sandra Peppers I know a lot of C4P peeps and “Palinistas” are disappointed and unhappy that Governor Palin has not announced her...

    Governor Palin has said many times that you don’t need a title to make a difference. Amen to those words. Our Founding Fathers created a Republic where it was not the people with the titles and the influence who were supposed to matter the most, but rather the individual, the common man. It was “We the People,” those of us without titles, that were meant to have the power to govern our own lives. That is the American way. <snip>I won’t say that she is the only one that can beat President Obama, because that is not true. Many...

    Since Governor Palin’s On the Record appearance Tuesday night, the blogosphere and media outlets have been buzzing with opinions that she’s not running for president in 2012. Her conversation with Greta Van Susteren left some to ponder, perhaps more than ever, if she has decided not to relinquish her freedom–not to be shackled–for the sake of a title. Comments left in various and sundry places revealed that some people were angry, some were confused, some were frustrated, while some remained encouraged. No one was unmoved, however. No one was without some type of reaction. No one was neutral. It was,...

    National Journal ^ | 11/28/2011 | National Journal Staff
    Acknowledging that "decisions have to be made" quickly, Sarah Palin on Tuesday laid out a case for not running for president in 2012. Appearing on Fox News' On the Record, a favorite venue, Palin appeared to be talking herself out of the race in an interview with host Greta Van Susteren. "Is a campaign too shackling?" she mused. As the GOP's 2008 vice presidential nominee, Palin said she felt encumbered by "handlers." Running for office "prohibits the freedom one needs to really make a difference," said the self-described "rogue" politician. Added Palin: "You don't need a title to make a...

    Herman Cain win in the "Presidency 5" straw poll in Florida on Saturday has reset much of the narrative concerning the 2012 Republican presidential contest. Here are some questions being asked. First, was Cain's victory a reflection of the general dissatisfaction Republicans feel toward purported front-runners Mitt Romney and Rick Perry? Second, could another candidate enter the presidential contest? Third, will the Republican primary contest be a battle between the William F. Buckley rule versus the Rush Limbaugh rule? If Republicans are indeed not enthused about Messrs. Perry and Romney, one candidate could be primed to enter the race who...

    It’s been a good few weeks for Sarah Palin. Now, a new national poll shows her trailing President Obama in a head-to-head matchup by just 5 points, 44 to 49 - this, after she had trailed him by more than 20 points for most of the year. That’s better than current GOP frontrunner Rick Perry, who trails the president 41 to 50 in the same poll. According to the survey, Palin’s recent jump in support has come mostly from independents, who have lately been abandoning the president in droves. Still, she remains a controversial figure: 72 percent of Republicans and...

    Political logic and election law suggest that anyone hoping to make a serious run for the White House next year will need to be formally in the race by November. Sarah Palin isn't so sure. ' The former Alaska governor appeared on Sean Hannity’s Fox News show on Tuesday, where she hinted ever so slightly that the current "unconventional" political landscape may allow for a later entry. (At the least, she has already proved that the current landscape has allowed would - be candidates to drag out their decisions much longer than one would expect.) Here was her response to...

    Sarah Palin: I am still considering running for president The State Column | Staff | Wednesday, September 21, 2011 Former Alaska governor Sarah Palin said Wednesday that she remains interested in seeking the 2012 Republican presidential nomination even as a recent poll shows a vast majority of Republican voters oppose her candidacy. “I think people are still going to be coming and going because there is still time, and I’m still one of those still considering,” Ms. Palin said during an appearance on Fox News. “There is still time…And I think on both sides of the aisle, you’re going...

    Watching Palin, you know that when she does something, she only does it at 110% or more. And like most politicians, she doesn’t like to lose (see her 2008 night of the election – yeah, she was angry McCain wouldn’t let her speak, but I’m also sure deep down she was bitter over the fact that the American voters bought the whole “hope and changey” platitudes.) And obviously, she wants to fix that bitter taste from 2008. How she accomplishes that (runs, doesn’t run, etc) has been a matter of debate. The biggest hinderance you hear about Palin running for...

    NY Daily News ^ | September 16, 2011 | Mike Lupica
    Sarah Palin, the darling of a pro-life party that cheers Texas executions at presidential debates, has made an insanely lucrative career out of being famous, a Kardashian sister of American politics. This week she becomes even more famous because of a new book written about her by Joe McGinniss, who became famous for writing a book called "The Selling of the President 1968." One of the stars of that book was Roger Ailes, who runs Fox News, where Palin has been a pinup girl since the last campaign, even if there was never a chance she was going to run...

    WHERE and HOWdo you think Sarah Palin will declare that she is running for President, now that we finally know WHEN she will do it? Within the last week or two,just about EVERYONE who is ANYONE in the pro-Palin community has posted online that Governor Palin will announce that she is running for President on "Constitution Day" --with virtually NONE of the traditional smackdown and/or denials coming from SarahPAC, or from any of the usual "insiders" at Team Sarah --who have generally been VERY GOOD at rumor control. So, if she really **is** getting into the race on Friday...

    I have a strong supporter off Governor Palin since 2009. and I have been attacked for that at times here on FR. It feels like she is leaving us hanging. Those of us who donated money and support to her over the last few years have a right to know where is this going. I used to be angry with the media, but now im somewhat unsure with her as well because she is not fighting back on their side of the 50. She hasn't been on tv debating liberals and getting in the mix. Why isn't she trying to...

    I guess that makes me a Scientologist, because I’ve posted repeatedly that Palin holds a special position because there is no one — not even George W. Bush — who has been the subject of the Democratic, mainstream media and left-blogosphere smear machine to the extent Palin has. So yes, I do take it personally when conservatives lash out at Palin not because of her policy positions or what she’s done or not done in her career, but with personal invective. It’s not religion, its a cold hard understanding of what is to come, and how those who call Palin...

    Polling the Palin factor: Either way, former Alaska governor having impact in Alabama by The Anniston Star Editorial Board Anniston Star Sep 10, 2011 The Capital Survey Research Center, which does polling for the Alabama Education Association, has surveyed Alabamians about President Barack Obama and the candidates seeking the Republican nomination. First, the president. Of the 841 registered voters who were polled, a majority said they did not like Obama and the direction he was taking the country. This comes as no surprise since a majority of those polled (488) said they would vote next year in the Republican primary....

    Perhaps Sarah Palin Is Waiting for Michele Bachmann to Drop Out (ContributorNetwork) September 9, 2011 COMMENTARY | In the aftermath of the GOP presidential debate, Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., may have been shown the exit door. The Washington Post reports a new poll conducted by the media outlet along with ABC News shows Bachmann at a paltry six percent, about half of what she had just one month ago. Despite winning the Iowa Straw Poll, all bets are off for Bachmann’s campaign. CBS News reports top staffers resigned and quit for fear the Minnesota Republican will mess up her own...

    As the presidential election campaign starts to occupy more and more of the airwaves someone should carry a counter and click every time the word ‘folks’ is uttered by a candidate. Even better would be how that final count would compare to the number of times a candidate would use a word like ‘citizens’ (at least citizens in a positive, civic light, not only in comparison to illegal ‘aliens’). In the opening chapter of her very relevant book The Age of American Unreason, Susan Jacoby laments the ever widening usage of the words like ‘folks’ and ‘troops’ in American social...
