Palin Reacts to Ross Smackdown.

And here is the official word from the governor on the rejection of Wayne Anthony Ross.    Dateline Indiana:

“In an unprecedented move, the 26th Alaska Legislature today rejected Governor Sarah Palin’s nomination for attorney general. Lawmakers failed to confirm Wayne Anthony Ross by a vote of 23 to 35.

“I believed I knew what Alaskans wanted when I selected an individual who is a strong backer of 2nd Amendment rights, a staunch supporter of the state Constitution and a defender of life,” Governor Palin said. “Wayne Anthony Ross supports responsible, ethical development of Alaska’s rich resources. I’m surprised that legislators in this case really did not seem to represent their constituents and allowed themselves to be swayed by side issues. Mr. Ross is a fine Alaskan. He is held in high esteem by many Alaskans. I appreciate his willingness to serve the public.”

Side issues? Like being concerned if you’re a lawmaker who might be breaking the LAW?

    Soooo… Sarah Palin says she considered abortion. Why are ya’alls believing her? When was the last time she told the truth?

    As for what c4pee thinks of all this… who cares? They are as irrelevant as is Mad Wayne Anthony. Who, btw, is probably really mad today!

  2. Homer@Homer says:

    Poor S, she can’t read or write or talk well herself, but couldn’t she PLEASE find someone to write press releases who can think and write? I’ve worked for people I disagreed with in government and elsewhere, but never have I seen such incompetence… well, mostly not, anyway.

    Good luck with the sadsack life, family, political, governmental, poor girly S….

    At the Indiana event, Palin said she considered an abortion when she found out Trig had ds after an amnoicentisis at 13 weeks (moms and medical folks, is that routine?) . A new approach to the hard-line right-to-lifers?
    **************
    Wow, if she said that, she should have been ripped to shreds by that group. What’s going on, it’s okay if she thinks about it? It’s okay if Bristol was pregnant w/o being married?

    What is going wrong? Why are the conservatives endorsing such a lame piece of crap? She’s not walking any walk, she’s pandering.

  4. MadCityKaren says:

    IMO, a ‘hardcore’ right-to-lifer wouldn’t have bothered with an “amniocentesis” as an abortion would not be a consideration under any circumstance. The argument may be made that she and the First Dud wanted to be ‘prepared’ for any potential genetic defects, but again, I don’t envision the hardcore crowd would normally be concerned by such things anyway as they don’t make allowances for abortion to begin with.

    I suspect that GINO had the amnio (or a CVS; chorionic villi sampling) after markers showed up for Down syndrome (DS) during a common scan at around 11 weeks of gestation — the nuchal translucency (NT) scan, which measures an area/fold at the fetus’ neck as there is a correlation with this measurement and an increased risk for DS. The NT scan is often done with some blood work (a triple screen or quad screen) in which certain hormones are analyzed in ratio to one another. As these markers (both the NT and the triple/quad screens) tend to have a number of false positive results, to know with certainty, a CVS or amnio is then done.

    I admit that I’m a little surprised to hear that GINO had considered abortion at all, considering what we’ve all heard her preach … (but I’ve not yet had a chance to see her speech in IN myself either).

  5. duct idaho palin says:

    I agree that many couples do face that decision. The difference for me is that, as far as I know, none of THOSE couples went around for a year declaring that they know what’s best for the country as far as not allowing kids to get sex education or access to birth control.

    On this you have to give her credit, at least she admitted that she considered an abortion as I am sure many couples do when faced with knowing they having a child with special needs/ birth defect. Even hard core right-to-lifers.

    Regarding censorship at ADN, I am never posting there again. I guess that is what they want. Milk toast discussion, not real discussion. I never used a swear word there and never said anything nasty, just expressed negative viewpoints about Palin which were very valid. They are creating forums with discussions that don’t reflect reality. I have no desire to read there either for that reason.

    A snippet from the ADN …..

    Wagoner said Ross got involved in his contentious election race against former Sen. Jerry Ward, sending out a mailer to National Rifle Association members in his district falsely suggesting the NRA was endorsing Ward.

    “It took us a lot of time, a lot of money and a lot of work to take the truth to the electorate in my district,” Wagoner told other lawmakers.

    “Yes We Can”…….a little perspective while we’re basking in the glow of WAR’s defeat, especially for those Mudpups who were somewhat bummed by the Day of the Jackals (aka Tea-Baggers) yesterday:

    FiveThirtyEight.com has non-partisan estimates that the attendance at the Tea-baggers’ shindigs was approximately 311,000 throughout the country.
    http://www.fivethirtyeight.com/2009/04/tea-party-nonpartisan-attendance.html

    But…Remember that an estimated 2 million were present on the Washington Mall alone on Jan.20, 2009 for Obama’s inauguration with millions and millions more at other gatherings throughout this country and the world!

    It’s a free country with free speech to air our grievances ( a nod to the Baggers) but progress is being made in small steps (WAR) and large steps (President Obama) in our nation.

    In response to post #509…

    “We know the battle ahead will be long, but always remember that no matter what obstacles stand in our way, nothing can stand in the way of the power of millions of voices calling for change.

    We have been told we cannot do this by a chorus of cynics…they will only grow louder and more dissonant ……….. We’ve been asked to pause for a reality check. We’ve been warned against offering the people of this nation false hope.

    But in the unlikely story that is America, there has never been anything false about hope.

    Now the hopes of the little girl who goes to a crumbling school in Dillon are the same as the dreams of the boy who learns on the streets of LA; we will remember that there is something happening in America; that we are not as divided as our politics suggests; that we are one people; we are one nation; and together, we will begin the next great chapter in the American story with three words that will ring from coast to coast; from sea to shining sea —

    Yes. We. Can.”

  17. Aussie Blue Sky says:

    A snippet from the ADN …..

    Legislators debated Ross for more than an hour in a joint session of the House and Senate before the vote. Ross’ Democratic opponents in the Legislature said their first sign he was truly going down came when Kenai Republican Sen. Tom Wagoner surprised them by standing up during the debate and saying that he was a no vote.

    Wagoner said Ross got involved in his contentious election race against former Sen. Jerry Ward, sending out a mailer to National Rifle Association members in his district falsely suggesting the NRA was endorsing Ward.

    “It took us a lot of time, a lot of money and a lot of work to take the truth to the electorate in my district,” Wagoner told other lawmakers.

    ……. nothing says “Attorney-General” quite like that, does it?

    Thank you for contacting my office to express your opinion on Governor Palin’s nomination of Wayne Anthony Ross for the office of Alaska Attorney General.

    Approximately 1 hour ago, the joint session of the Alaska Legislature rejected Mr. Ross by a vote of 23 yeas to 35 nays.

    I intend to work with Governor Palin over the interim and next legislative session in vetting a new attorney general candidate.

    Thank you again for your input in the public process.

    Sincerely,

    I would really like it if some smart person could put the emails of those Leg and Sen. who voted against WAR so we could thank them? I went through each email by hand and sent them email and I simply can’t do it again. Does anyone have the emails of who voted against WAR? Although Sen Therriault voted for WAR I wanted to respond to him b/c of his very nice email to me.

    Adoption was not good enough for Bristol. She’s a teen mommy raising a baby without an education.

    Good question. How MANY has Sarah adopted? I’ve adopted 8. I’m 51 and my youngest is 4. If she truly walked the walk, she would have encouaged her daughter to give up the baby to a MARRIED mother and father, who had JOBS and maybe even an education to raise that little one. While were at it, I think Trig could also benefit from a real family, and not a photo op.
    —————————————————
    The thing about her hypocrisy is she keeps on telling folks (in various twisted language) that she considered having a termination. And then she talks about having amniocentesis which everyone knows can cause miscarriage. And then there is the story of the Wild Ride, putting her baby directly at risk that way.

    She has no Right to Life credentials, in my opinion – none at all.

    Congrats to everyone! Today was a good day. Some random thoughts…

    The AG is supposed to represent ALL constituents of a state. What I heard from the legislators who voted nay is that they understood this. Those legislators voted against him because he was incapable of representing ALL Alaskans. The yea votes were generally “buddy votes.” He’s a great friend, neighbor, godfather… What a narrow focus. Those folks didn’t appear (IMHO) to have ALL Alaskans in their thoughts. The real win here is that 60% of the legislators voted with 100% of the population in mind. That’s a 100% win. (Bear with me because it’s 1:00am here and I should be asleep!) If the results had been reversed, my really deep-thinking math says it wouldn’t have been a 100% win. More like 60% voting on behalf of 60%….making it less than a 40% win for Alaskans. Clear as mud?

    Also. Too. Saw the drama queen Zeigler arrest video. He is all ass. He was on private property (where are the private property rights people when you need them?) and doesn’t have the journalistic gravitas of a reporter from TV Guide. STFU. You. (with Archie Bunker finger motions)

    Gee. WAR turns 65 and they give him a nice speech (probably written by WAR or his best buddies). I’ll bet if they had had public testimony last year about his colorful history, it may not have been such a pretty endorsement. How many legislators knew his “who ya gonna rape” stance?

    Bless you all who watched the Palin speech. I hate listening to her voice and watching her mouth when she talks. She has this repulsive snarky thing going on. I can’t watch.

    And God love those who you can stomach c4p. Blech!

    Goodnight. Pray for strength to see us through the next round of hooey.

    lynnrockets, oh, I love the Wild!, but I would drop them in a heartbeat to have the North Stars back.

    I don’t have cable so I don’t get to watch the NHL tournament until the finals. Go Bruins!

  63. BooBooBear says:

    I want to thank AKM for her tireless efforts to help this happen today. You rallied the troops to write to our Legislators and voice our opinions and we did by the thousands. Just as you did in your effort to feed the folks in the Western villages. There is strength in numbers…..and those numbers are growing! Let’s stay strong and work on a recall now. We can make it happen…I have not spoken with a single person who still likes Palin.

  64. Just a thought says:

    Adoption was not good enough for Bristol. She’s a teen mommy raising a baby without an education.

    Good question. How MANY has Sarah adopted? I’ve adopted 8. I’m 51 and my youngest is 4. If she truly walked the walk, she would have encouaged her daughter to give up the baby to a MARRIED mother and father, who had JOBS and maybe even an education to raise that little one. While were at it, I think Trig could also benefit from a real family, and not a photo op.

    THE WASSILLA HILLBILLIES
    (sung to the theme of the “Beverly Hillbillies”)

    Come and listen to a story bout a gal named Palin
    A poor Alaskan mayor, who’s economy was failin’,
    Then one day while she was drillin’ for some crude
    She was elected governor and brought along the First Dude.

    Todd that is, Snowmachines, G.E.D.

    Well the first thing ya know in a beehive was her hair,
    Next some business ‘bout some “bridge to nowhere”
    She said, “Ya know D.C. is the place we ought to be”
    So she called John McCain and they both went “mavericky”

    Preggo teens that is, Neiman Marcus, Goin’ Rogue.

    Well now its time to say good-bye to Sarah and her kin.
    The election didn’t go so well, it was an ass kickin’
    You’re all invited back again in 4 more years or so,
    She really yearns for D.C. just because she hates the snow.

    Alaskan that is. Set a spell, Take your muckluks off.

    Y’all come back now, y’hear?

  67. lynnrockets says:

    @ asiangrrrlMN: Does the Wild not suit your fancy? Who next for coach and GM now that that Montreal tandem is gone? Speaking of Montreal, how about the pasting the Habs took from my Bruins tonight?

  68. nswfm CA says:

    Dragonlady
    Can not watch her nor listen to her. It has to be a transcript from a reliable source. I used to watch her body language during the failed campaign by watching online without the volume. Now I can’t even watch. She is lying when her lips move. Thank you to all the people here who have saved me from listening to this whackjob. Especially you, AKM.

    Did anybody else catch this little quote under the Bristol story on HuffPo..?

    “Palin family spokeswoman Meghan Stapleton responded in an e-mail to the AP by saying, “Bristol is focused on college, advocating abstinence and raising Tripp.”

    Question for Meg..? How does she “focus on college ” … IF she hasn’t focused on that H.S. diploma… Yet.? Here Meg…see if this shoe fits in your mouth.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    b/c its all spin/lies/spin! Bristol is going to Wasilla high school to help with a swim class/teacher(new BF?) Bristol is working as barista, but I haven’t heard one person, not one say “Wow, Bristol palin made me a White skinny latte” Meg staplemouth et al are hoping all the spin will confuse people and cloud the issue. Yes Bristol did work as a barista, now was that in 2007(yes as evidenced on GINO taxes) or 2008 WHEN SHE WAS PREGNANT?(again)
    They tell so many lies its hard to keep up. Nowadays even Jr. colleges are very competitive and hard to get into. How is someone without a HS diploma going to get in for vocational school? Oh she went from not going to school in Jan 08 to getting her HS and doing a SAT for college? I don’t think so. And how many college in Ak anyway?
    Well now Levi has “lawyered up” heh, heh, and already chuckie boy has denied what he said about Levi. Well, Well, Well, this could get very interesting.

    Sarah the Red State bimbo
    Had a very strange hairstyle
    And she had a way of speaking
    That reminded one of Gomer Pyle

    All of the other guv’nors
    Used to laugh and call her names
    Because her stupid glasses
    Were all lens but had no frames

    Then one balmy summer day
    John McCain enquired
    Sarah, you’re so “mavericky”
    Won’t you please be my V.P.?

    Then all the dumb red staters
    Wondered who the hell was she
    They never heard of Sarah

    lynnrocketsAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! Another Norm that I hate! Norm Green took our beloved North Stars and moved them to Dallas.

    Anyhoo, I am fine with the partnership as long as I can be George Harrison. Either place works for me. I was just in Boston recently because I was seeing someone there. Went to a Red Sox game. GREAT seafood!

    @ nswfm CA: I’m somewhat of a technophobe. I don’t even know what a forum is. Inasmuch as I’m 46 years of age, I’m not quite ready to “step into the 90’s” just yet. I’m embarrassed to admit that I don’t know what a forum is, but any help would be appreciated.

  75. Dragon Lady says:

    OMG – just saw the whole thing. (My You Tube link is missing some parts and the C4P is out of sync). I made it and I want a shot of hard liquor.

    What a blatant campaign speech – drilling, the stimulus, North Korea, missile defense. Particularly nice was “being enslaved to foreign nations.” Be afraid. Worked God into everything she could.

    What a manipulator. I see now just how she got elected. She’s been doing it her entire life.

    And what a little actress she is with the near-tears, hesitation, little jerky intake of breath: “when he was born; my heart overflowed with joy.” (Insert that little gasp at the semi-colon.) And then she miraculously recovers and plunges ahead with her speech.

    There is nothing sacred to her that she will not use for shameless self-promotion. She got her mojo back and that was the real purpose of the trip.

  76. lynnrockets says:

    @ asiangrrlMN: Nice work. Maybe we can team up like McCartney/Lennon, what do you think? Will it be Minneapolis or Boston? I’m fond of MN. I had a cup of tea with the North Stars many years ago. You’re probably too young to remember them though.

    @EyeOnYou, that’s what I heard, she did say 8 wks premature. No, your not going crazy. LOL

    …who heard 8 weeks instead of 5 weeks…

    Well, Canadian Neighbor is right. SP DID say Trig was 5 weeks premature — not 8.

    I just listened to the pertinent part of the video of her speech over at C4P just now, and to me, it’s quite plain and clear that SP says 5 weeks.

    I gotta go over to Palin’s Deceptions and put out any fires that are erupting… 🙂

  81. Martha Unalaska Yard Sign says:

    @ karen marie

    “…do you really want meth heads, for instance, with military grade weapons?”

    Alaskans love their guns, as a general rule. But it’s not the meth heads I’m worried about! It’s the “f#ck the feds” ones I worry about gettin’ whacky – which is why it is a huge relief to dump that blowhard wannabe AG who was as opinionated and self centered as they come. He had no problem putting a gun to a German tourist’s head when the guy freaked out in a plane – if he’s such a good lawyer & talker – why did he use a gun? He felt justified and quite proud of himself it seemed.

  82. lynnrockets says:

    @ Martha: Thanks for the support. My answer to your question is, “I really don’t know.” Seems to come naturally. I’m Irish so maybe it’s just the “gift of gab.”
    By the way, do any of you know what Irish Alzheimers disease is?
    Answer: That’s when you forget everything but a grudge. (baboom)

    @ nswfm CA: I’m all ears (really, you should see me). What are the 3 ways? As for the LA thing, I don’t know if I could do that what with the Celtics-Lakers rivalry and all. Also, you folks deprive us Bay Staters of a lot of talent. Jay Leno, Conan O’Brien, Dennis Leary. Need I go on?

    lynnrockets

    When the moon hits the sky
    Like a bullet in my thigh (from a semiautomatic machine gun)
    That’s amore!

    When a big case of wine
    Can’t hide the taste of swine
    That’s amore!

    Palin will snivel, drivel drivel drivel, drivel
    She’s a whiner
    We’ll all scream, drama queen drama queen
    Until we try her.

    When the legislature says no
    Pushes back ROSS to that ho
    That’s amore!

    When you have a big grin
    At the thought of Sarah Palin
    You know it’s not love

    When you snicker in her face
    As she suffers her disgrace, compadre
    Scuzza me, but you see
    We are so sick of thee

    THAT’S AMOOOOOOOORE!

    See, now you got me doing it!

    I am impressed by the AK ‘flatters. In MN, we tend to vote Democratic for POTUS and Republican for governor. This time, I am going to dedicate myself to the Democratic candidate for governor because Ratface Pawlenty HAS to go. I will look to the ‘flats for inspiration.

  84. nabrum says:

    What’s scary is the reception she got in Indiana today. Frenzied Palinistas who really don’t know, and don’t want to know, what’s going on in AK. She is still held on a pedestal by many.

    And of course on Great van Suckup tonight, she was asking FOX reporter Cameron how the Ak’ians like her, and he said they love her, including the Legislature. Never even mentioned WAR going down in flames. No wonder the rest of the country doesn’t know what is going on.

    It will make the Rep Primary campaign interesting, as they will have to go for the jugular and call her out on her governorship and lack of leadership, otherwise they’ll get swept away by the Palinistas. Thanks, McCain.

  85. Martha Unalaska Yard Sign says:

    You ARE hereby an honorary Alaskan, lynnrockets!

  86. lynnrockets says:

    Am I sensing a Moose Pucky-asiangrrlMN romance in the making? Or is the back and forth banter just playful flirting?

    On a more serious note, folks. Congratulations to the Mudflats site and all of you bloggers (posters?) for the wonderful job of spreading the word about Lil’ Miss Sunshine and Alaska issues. I’m certain that your efforts were quite instrumental in persuading some of the legs to change their vote regarding WAR. Your’s was a true grassroots effort that culminated in actual tangible results, unlike the ReichWing Tea-Bagging parties.

    As a lifelong political wonk, I commend your efforts and envy you because I do not feel it necessary very often to engage myself in these matters in my own Commonwealth of Massachusetts. You see, virtually every pol here is a Democrat at both the state and federal level and I am proud to say that they represent my interests quite well. We do, on occasion elect a Republican Governor every once in a while just to keep some semblance of checks and balances. Nonetheless, i am proud to say that in the 389 year history of the Bay State, we have never had a full 2 term Republican Governor.

    But I digress. The point I’m trying to make is that I envy your participation because you folks can actually effect change for the better. I have become a student of Alaska politics now and would love to be an honorary citizen if you’ll have me.

    Plus, I kind of like this song gig better than my day job.

    Bravo, to all of you.

    Heh, heh …… CRYSTALWOLF, THIS ONE’S JUST FOR YOU! DOW took out special advertising in Evansville today.

    (in today’s online Evansville Indiana rag — sorry, I forgot to get the link)
    Anti-Palin advertising campaign greets Alaska governor
    By Thomas B. Langhorne (Contact)
    Originally published 04:29 p.m., April 16, 2009

    A Washington, D.C.-based political group made a one-day media buy on television stations in the Evansville media market and bought a full-page ad in today’s Courier & Press welcoming Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin to town.

    But it isn’t the sort of welcome Palin would enjoy.

    The ads, running today only, are paid for by Defenders of Wildlife Action Fund, which decries what it calls Palin’s “anti-wolf, anti-wildlife agenda.” The group accuses Palin of promoting the shooting of wolves from airplanes, as well as gassing wolf pups in their dens.
    ———–
    Yukonbushgrma! Thank you! I just saw on ceefourpee that all those widdle peeps were just horrified to see such awfulness! That Sar-rah was coming to right to life and they were trying to discredit her, and some children have pets and don’t know what’s going on in Alaska anyway!!!!
    RIGHT ON! WHEN SHE WAS TALKING HER “INNOCENT LIVES, I SAID WHAT ABOUT THE WOLVES”????
    DoW also, too…said it was “tracking” her whereabouts…
    Good thing DOW show these people what Sarah considers pro-life! She is a killer. She almost admitted she could of had a abortion!!!! And that no one would of known except her. She must of thought of it! Wolf killing B*tch!!!

  88. nswfm CA says:

    Lynnerockets, you type them in faster than I can keep up with the comments. I am begging you to copyright them. You never know when they might come in handy. I can think of at least 3 ways to use them, and you deserve money for this intellectual property from these and other uses. Very creative. And I am sure you could make money in LA or other cities from this work. There are over 400 comments here alone.

  89. SystemBucker says:

    I just listened to the KTUU interview. She really does sound crazy. I don’t think she answered any of the questions. I love how the crazy lady avoided answering the question about how she is being viewed. Oh yeah, and how many times can you state that Ross got a citation…so what! Doesn’t the State hand out about 400 of them per year. Didn’t Ross get his on his 65th birthday for basiclly turning 65…or something like that.

    Crazy, crazy, crazy.

  90. honestyinGov says:

    Somebody should tell Levi’s Lawyer to make a statement to the Press about something. (Like the Mag article..?) GINO would go into such a rant at this point. There would be no way she could keep her mouth shut…. it’s not her style.

    And the last time she spoke out everybody believed Levi by 80% +.
    Total meltdown would ensue. Plus the GrandPa Heath comments show up in the magazine tomorrow and ALREADY today he is denying. GINO and Dad have the same MO. Runs in the Family.

  91. Martha Unalaska Yard Sign says:

    lynnrockets – please share – how do you do that so quickly? And HOW do you remember all these TV show and cartoon songs? I’m flabbergasted and entertained to no end!

  92. Martha Unalaska Yard Sign says:

    I posted this earlier, but I just have to say it again:

    I HEART our Alaska blue bloggers (and Halcro, too on this one) for all of the hard work in this tremendous public involvement movement to deny Ross this confirmation! I am SO PROUD of all of you, and so thankful for all of you!

    Hey, even my hubby wrote a letter to the Legislature about WAR when he first came on the scene, and he’s now moved on to writing to the President. This is a BIG deal. And thanks to all of the non Alaskans who wrote, too – all of your emails helped counter those from the crazy side of the fence.

  93. asiangrrlMN says:

    karen marie, the fishery vote went ‘our’ way, and the guns vote went ‘the crazy way’. And so it goes.

  94. karen marie says:

    if you think it’s fun laughing at la palin now, wait until after her next attempt to make the legislature her b!tch fails.

    she seems to be working the victim angle but the group of people willing to buy into that become smaller and smaller.

    i was not surprised to hear that palin’s entire talk tonight was about herself rather than highlighting what’s going on, other people working hard, something that might give the audience the impression she has a working knowledge of the subject du jour.

    my prediction is that she will never make appearances except before ones like tonight’s — where she will be perfectly safe from anyone asking her a question that reveals her total lack of intellectual and organizational abilities.

    i am so pleased for alaska that it’s legislature did the right thing today.

    i hope that you are as successful with the fisheries exemption in the hydro bill and the firearms business. i mean, it’s one thing to have guns to hunt for food but you all should be very afraid if the the current wording is passed.

    do you really want meth heads, for instance, with military grade weapons?

  95. asiangrrlMN says:

    And if you can take it – her 9 minute telephone interview after WAR lost. She is quite glib. No one ever asks her follow up questions. (Oh, follow up questions are considered gotcha.)

    She mentions that with Ross there was “a new sheriff in town” that the lege feared him “cleaning house.” She is also on record here stating that She Appoints; the 1987 ruling calls for open votes and she intends to follow the state constitution. I think she is headed for a new mavericky battle here also.

    Heh, heh …… CRYSTALWOLF, THIS ONE’S JUST FOR YOU! DOW took out special advertising in Evansville today.

    (in today’s online Evansville Indiana rag — sorry, I forgot to get the link)
    Anti-Palin advertising campaign greets Alaska governor
    By Thomas B. Langhorne (Contact)
    Originally published 04:29 p.m., April 16, 2009

    A Washington, D.C.-based political group made a one-day media buy on television stations in the Evansville media market and bought a full-page ad in today’s Courier & Press welcoming Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin to town.

    But it isn’t the sort of welcome Palin would enjoy.

    The ads, running today only, are paid for by Defenders of Wildlife Action Fund, which decries what it calls Palin’s “anti-wolf, anti-wildlife agenda.” The group accuses Palin of promoting the shooting of wolves from airplanes, as well as gassing wolf pups in their dens.

    From ADN:

    “JUNEAU — On the same day they rejected an attorney general designee who is a board member of the National Rifle Association, members of the state House on Thursday approved a bill exempting guns and ammunition manufactured and kept within Alaska from federal firearms regulation….

    Rep. Les Gara, D-Anchorage, said Alaska does not have firearm regulations in place and the bill proposes to exempt Alaskans from federal law that bans missiles with incendiary charges, bombs and grenades….”

    @ Dragon Lady, she called them “borrowed clothes”, made a funny about it and the audiance laughed and applauded. She, at the beginning, sounded like she was campaigning.

    Sarah just can’t get over herself can she? It’s always about her.
    There is not way in the world for her to ever function as a leader or statesman or even a community organizer until she can create a bigger universe than her. She’s totally selflimited to her self.

    If she can’t get begond the clothes thing in her own mind, how can she “progress” anything?
    Yes, her detractors are going to bring it up, but why is she still living there?

    She reminds me of a old joke of a yogi who contemplated his navel so ardently he got his head sucked into it one day and couldn’t get it out again. So he became self consuming.
    It awfully difficult to progress, or be forward looking from that position.

  128. Spaz says:

    Enough about the development of resources!!! If an attorney general won’t RESPECT and protect the civil rights of the state’s citizens, he does not belong in the post. Very nice to have seen that at least some Republicans voted against the appointment. Congrats Alaska.

    SARAH P.
    (sung to the theme of “Daniel Boone”)

    Sarah P. was a guv.
    She was a lame guv.
    But McCain was even lamer,
    so should we really blame her, golly gee

    Sarah P. was a guv.
    She was a dumb guv.
    But the First Dude was dumber,
    so she summoned “Joe the Plumber” to the scene.

    From the beehive do on the top of her head
    To the spike of her high heel shoes;
    Like a zombie from “Night of the Living Dead”,
    She looked so damn confused.

    Sarah P. was a guv.
    She was a slick guv.
    In an attempt to win her hicks back;
    Her speeches addressed “Joe Sixpack’ all the time.

    Drivin’ witches out with prayer!
    A one-time Wasilla mayor, was she!

    Sarah P. was a guv.
    She was a big guv.
    But the legislature’s bigger;
    With a lot more vim and vigor than she.

    Sarah P. was a guv.
    She was a gun guv.
    She loved aerial shootin’;
    And would love to blast Mike Wooten form a tree!

    She said, “Thanks But No Thanks” and “Drill Baby Drill”
    But beyond that had nothin’ to say;
    During interviews, she just should have sat still,
    Was upstaged by Tina Fey

    Sarah P. was a guv.
    Was a fine guv.
    But Murkowski is finer;
    And not nearly such a whiner is she!

    Anyone know, who was the guy supporting WAR who said Ross was like T.R. and Judge Roy Bean. He laid it on with a Trowel. He would flip between Ross being “just a plainspoken guy” and then compare him to famous “characters.”

    From the postings do NOT tell me she is still talking about the clothes! (During the campaign they told her to Drop It; things have a 24 hour news cycle. It blew her hockey mom image and she knows it. Also a blow to her vanity.)

    Sounds as if she was campaigning if she mentioned being enslaved to China, has her eye on North Korea. Did she really say these things?

    Did she really tear up? My Favorite Photo is of her on election night, just on the verge of tears. I call it Brave Barbie. A real beauty pageant moment. So close to that crown.

    the GOP-dominated Alaska Legislature rejected Gov. Sarah Palin’s nominee to replace her disgraced Attorney General. Although Alaska’s mainstream media failed to see this Palin defeat coming, several Alaska blogs and civil rights activists combined efforts to educate the public and get them to write to legislators. Some predicted this outcome as early as last weekend.

    This just in… Here is the full transcript of Sarah P.’s Indiana speech which campaign officials say will be her standard stump speech in her bid for POTUS 2012:

    SARAH’S WAY
    (sung to Frank Sinatra’s “My Way”)

    And now, the end is near;
    To all of you, I’m glad I met ya’
    Alaskans, let’s make it clear,
    Did I fool you?, Oh yeah, “ya betcha!”

    You’ve met Todd, the “First Dude”,
    His snowmachine is in the driveway.
    Is he drunk? My God, he’s blitzed,
    The D.U.I. way.

    Regrets, I’ve had a few;
    More than most, I will remember.
    My lipstick and my hair-do
    But most of all, 4th of November.

    Each day since then has been
    Another never-ending whine and cry day,
    And I’ve been told by Newt Gingrich,
    To hit the high-way.

    Yes, there were times, that now you know
    I failed to declare “per diem” dough.
    What’s this about “stimulus funds”?
    Let’s just cling to, our God and guns.
    Oh, I just winked and then I blinked;
    And did it my way.

    Nicknames, I’ve had a few
    There’s “Caribou” and “Barracuda”
    Now I’m known as “Sarah Who?”
    Cuz Tina Fey is so much cuter.

    To think I’m a has been;
    And I can’t see – beyond next Friday
    Woe, oh woe is me,
    I won’t have my day.

    For what is a gal, what has she got?
    When her career, has gone to pot.
    How to appear on nightly news;
    When she’s inept at interviews.
    She’s still exposed despite those clothes –
    See – You – Next – Tuesday!

  199. Canadian Neighbour says:

    EyeOnYou,
    CNN might have a vid on their site maybe tomorrow of her speech.

    I know when she was talking about early date, she was talking too about just letting people know a month before that I think that she was preg.

  200. austintx says:

    Janeane is layin’ it OUT on KO. I’ll post it in the am when it’s available. She perfectly explains the mindset of people that blindly follow the far right.

  201. Dragon Lady says:

    where is it besides CNN?

  202. Blue Idaho says:

    So now Palin thought it was ok to take two plane rides and a two hour car ride with as a 45 year old woman with a risky pregnancy who’s water broke 8 weeks before her due date. I have not seem this interview. Did she really say she was 8 weeks premature?

  203. pvazwindy says:

    I muscled up and listened to the shout out. Not sure what she said, hard to recognize the dialect. But be forewarned, she’s coming back with a recharged engine, and a hockey stick, to whup a$$. Did I hear her say Alaska witnessed a 1700 ft. high tidal wave? Mentioned the school districts but failed to mention the 40% dropout rate. She has invitations to travel the world, but settled on Evansville. It was the donuts and chocolate that won her heart. That poor guy from Pakistan must be thinking what will it take to get her to visit me. We don’t have chocolate in islamabad.

    SARAH and THE BIG O
    (sung to the theme of “Chico and the Man”)

    Sarah, don’t be discouraged,
    The Big O, he ain’t so hard to understand.
    Sarah, you and Bristol,
    Could both have had pregnancies that were planned.

    Also, it’s good to finish school,
    Dropping out is just not cool.
    Six colleges also will not fly.

    But Sarah , things will be better
    If you listen and take notes from the Big O,
    If you listen and take notes from the Big O.

    ____________________________________________

    I thought it was 8? Could I have misheard it? I hit the eight on my keyboard as soon as she said it… they don’t even sound alike…I hope someone gets a transcript or a copy so I can double check, because I don’t want to make the statement if I misheard it.

  209. antiAnti says:

    @here_in_PA Says: -April 16th, 2009 at 6:35 PM

    I don’t follow all the details on Palin baby dates. I was just connecting up a 6lb plus baby with the 8 week premature comment and saying “does not compute”. I’m afflicted with a brain that calculates whether I want it to or not.

  210. honestyinGov says:

    The KTUU audio interview after she was informed about the WAR NO Vote was very bizarre. She even said WAR’s explanation about seating someone whether it was ‘legal or not legal… just do it ‘ was the OPPOSITE of what he said..?????????

    Bristol and the rest of Her kids are going to be soooooo screwed up when they get older. There is no guidance there at all.
    What role models do they have as well… Grandpa Heath..?

  211. Dragon Lady says:

    I tried CNN live and it lists Sarah but when I click it I get some story about jazz in South Africa.

    The Evansville site just goes to a tv screen with nothing on it.

    I feel like I am sitting in the school cafeteria alone eating my stale sandwich.

    HELP.

  212. nswfm CA says:

    193 the norwegian blue
    from the article:
    One can’t help but get the impression that Palin is a clownish, vindictive amateur.

    Now, for example, Palin is raising hackles for naming colorful crackpot Wayne Anthony Ross to be Alaska’s attorney general. It turns out that Palin may have consulted with Ross over a state senate appointment, a move that would have been against state law. As a general matter, state law is something you might want your AG to be on top of.

    What I’m wondering is: Has Sarah Palin undergone some kind of secret lobotomy?

    Reihan Salam is a fellow at The America Foundation and the co-author of Grand New Party.

    ooooh, the comments after that! She’s toast!

  213. here_in_PA says:

    What is the difference from what was said before? Is 8 wks preemie differing from another statement she made a while back? I don’t follow deceptions blog very closely.

  214. austintx says:

    Well – KO is about to have Janeane Garafalo on……….talk about polar ends of the spectrum. That will unscramble my brain.

  215. Lainey says:

    THANK GOD!!!! for all Alaskans.
    Too bad you’re still left with that crazy BIT*H !!!!!!!!! I cannot believe she had that ludacris response. Oh wait, yes I can…it’s palin, after all.

  216. Aussie Blue Sky says:

    So she’s an honorary citizen of a State that voted for Obama?

  217. Canadian Neighbour says:

    EyeOnYou Says:

    antiAnti Says:

    Eight (8) weeks premature? Are you sure she said 8?

    That is what she said. It was the first thing I got down from that part of the speech.

    =====I thought she said five

  218. mmboucher Florida says:

    She looked and sounded terrible! Why did she even question wheather or not to have Trig before she even knew he was a special needs? She said she was thinking about it and even Todd wouldn’t have known! She is a piece of work.

  219. Canadian Neighbour says:

    According the the Lt. Gov of Indiana, Palin’s fav movies is Hoosiers and Palin has now been declared an honorary Hoosier. That will now bring up some new names for her.

    CNN feed went off my computer. Whether it was on just to cover up to and including Palin — don’t know

  220. libby says:

    AntiAnti: the folks at the Palindeception will have a field day with that little tidbit.

    Maybe she did say something new.

    Man, that was painful!!

  226. here_in_PA says:

    They are only feeding her ego Just made her an honorary hoosier

  227. EyeOnYou says:

    Oh they made her an honorary Hosier. How lovely for her!

  228. zyggy says:

    she’s crying because she didn’t get her way in Juneau, and doesn’t want to go home and face everyone.

    I’m just a Governor………….The F^*K she is !!

  235. here_in_PA says:

    Giving thanks for invitation, only one out of thousands she chose to come to. HHMMMM, was it the only one?

  236. Fish Hawk Road Jody says:

    Excuse me, but how many kids has Sarah adopted? Neither she nor these right to life groups care about the child after it’s born. Then it’s you’re on your own, see ya.

    As a Vet she disgusts me when she pulls this praise the veterans nonsense.

    She needs to drop the proud to be Americans crap too. Oh wait…she’s still campaigning against President Obama. Is she wearing clown shoes?

    Now there were 3 divergent subjects she floated in about 3 minutes…arghhhh. lol

  237. deist says:

    I think today should be a State Holiday– we could call it Capitulation Day– the day Alaskans bailed from Palin.

    Dear Palin– Best wishes on your job pursuits in the “Lower 48”– apparently you don’t have a future in Alaska– you’ve been booted. Hope you can find a job down South.

  238. EyeOnYou says:

    Thank you for speaking up for something special here in Indiana..god’s blessing. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

  239. antiAnti says:

    Eight (8) weeks premature? Are you sure she said 8? Pretty hard to believe that a 6lb something baby was 8 weeks early…. at full term he would have been a great big OUCH.

  240. libby says:

    Whew, it is OVER.

    She said NOTHING new.

  241. here_in_PA says:

    How many times will she say, “I’m the governor”?

  242. penny says:

    ah lordy i thought she was sincere there a moment talking about Trig (for a whole 3-4 min?) and then how we should speak up against bad Obama.. lost all credibility

    Wasn’t sure I had in my heart what he would need so I prayed.

    Crying….my heart overflowed when he was born.
    He is amazing…nothing else matters when I hold him.

    I want other women to expeirence this,
    Please consider adoption

    Can look at a scared teen who is afraid to give up a child..
    Or those who are looking to adopt…
    you are doing the right thing in planting the seeds…

    The culture of life affects all aspects of our lives
    we must speak up
    don’t be afraid to speak up

    it isn’t above my paygrade to speak up
    remind everyone that we are proud to be americans

    Maybe some one can explain this, but I’m not too hopeful, as just about every one is not well versed in Sarah-speak.

    You, SP, are invited to address an anti-abortion group. So…why is she doing nothing but telling everyone how great she is?

    Normal folks would tend to address the group’s topic at end, not the stimulus, not the campaign, not China…

    Oh…never mind…I got it now: us “normal folks” get it, SP is not normal….

    #115 Sauerkraut said:

    “Well played, ladies and gentlemen of the legislature. Way to stand up for your constituents! Rejecting mediocrity is always a good thing.”

    I join your congratulations, Sauerkraut, but do you think WAR rose to the level of mediocre? Maybe his lawyering skills were mediocre, but that flamboyant, self-aggrandizing, confrontational personality made him a very poor pick for AG — way below “C” level — wholly apart from his relationship with Palin. If she had offered a merely mediocre nominee who quietly shared most of her opinions without WAR’s in-your-face attitude, there would have been no fuss. (Her gratuitous insults to the legislature didn’t help, either.) I guess we should be grateful for her poor political skills.

  252. Fish Hawk Road Jody says:

    Whaaaaaaaaat? Now she compares herself to Sarah in the Bible? Ahahahahahahaha…whoa she’s bizarre. ” I do understand what these women with these girls go through”<<<—ok, what the heck was that word salad?

  257. EyeOnYou says:

    Trig was 8 weeks premature
    Found out at 13 weeks he was downs
    Was I gonna walk the walk or talk the talk…had to ask myself.
    Found out I was pregnant at an Oil & Gas Meeting.
    For a fleeting moment I considered….no one knows me here…
    Then I found out from the amnio….
    Could understand the idea of changing the circumstances

    Only the doc knew…not even Todd knew at that time.
    Considered everything…less than ideal circumstances…
    Had just enough faith to understand I can’t change the circumstances…

    I came to believe that Trig’s prenatal test was a test for me to walk the walk and do what I had already preached.

    Blaming society for influencing people to have abortion…

    LOL, I thought she had a 10 min. window. How long will this be?

  262. Nan says:

    There’s a joke in our house about someone who watched a tv show from the hall instead of in the easy chair. Sort of an unconscious wanting to be distanced rom the really awful acting that was on whatever show it was.

    I wish I could read the rest of this from the hall, not the comfy couch…

  263. Fish Hawk Road Jody says:

    I’m not sure what people she knows but most I know have no issue with pregnant women working. I think the Neanderthals are in her slice of the political pie.

    Well, THIS is telling… KTUU TV just aired an interview w/ Wayne Anthony Ross that they did today. His statement to all of Alaska on camera was this:

    “I think we have a great Governor. I really wanted to represent HER. And I think she made a great choice in nominating me”.

    His second sentence reveals that he is just as big a Narcissist as Sarah Palin (quite an accomplishment, even for this blowhard). But even more disturbingly, he obviously JUST DOESN’T GET IT. Hey, “WAR”, read my lips: The job of the Attorney General of the State is to uphold state law AS IT IS WRITTEN, and to represent the PEOPLE OF THE STATE, not the Governor who appointed you, or anyone else with an agenda. That’s what the realm of “law” is all about. I just can’t believe this guy actually made it through law school (or even TO it!)

    Great news. The winds of change are really blowing up there. BTW, when something like this happens the usual rhetoric is that you nominated someone who supports the rule of law – not that you singled out their being a “strong supporter of the 2nd Amendment” and ” defender of life.” A little nuance goes a long way Governor.

    And like sports scores, blood pressure readings, bad odds and a host of other numeric listings, you never give the vote backwards: 23-35. I would hate to be the person in her office who is keeping the replacement lists. They’re in for a world of hurt.

    Heath was quoted in an earlier published report lambasting Johnston’s recent TV appearances saying: “I don’t agree with what he’s doing right now. It’s not right. He’s broke, so he’s trying to capitalize on this. I wish he’d take some of this money he’s making and buy some diapers with it.” Johnston has publicly complained that the Palins are limiting his access to his baby Tripp with the governor’s daughter.

    Now Heath says he never made those remarks and even defends the unemployed teenager. “I didn’t say most of that stuff—that’s a bunch of garbage. I don’t know how they came up with that. The only thing I said—and that was said jokingly, that was kind of in jest about the diapers,” Heath explained to RadarOnline. As for his feelings on Johnston hitting the media circuit, Heath cuts the teenager some slack. “It’s up to him. He’s a kid. I have no bone to pick with Levi, he’s a good kid.”

    “The hypocrisy there is quite glaring. I believe they need to be called out on that,” Palin said.

    If Palin tried to have Ross continue, she’d open herself up to certain legal challenge.

    Since, in the long run it is to the Repblicans advantage, also, to continue the time honored way of filling a vacated seat –
    What if the Leg. Dems and Republicans had a open vote from the floor for Eagan? Sarah would have a hard time rejecting that choice since they will have done it the way she wanted it.

    Sarah could still might not accept their vote but she would be rejecting the Republicans, and would have gotten the open two party vote she said wanted.
    Next time the Leg. can go back to the way they have been filling the seat. I haven’t seen a single criticism of how that process has worked for 20 years, except that a real election would be preferable.

    It is my understanding that WAR will continue as the intrim AG until an official AG is approved by the next Leg. Hopefully this slap down will keep him on a short leash. And hopefully if he pulls anymore bull patty quasi,according-to-WAR legaleze, he will get slapped down quick.

Somehow, I don’t think there was the same outrage when the REAL journalists from Democracy Now were zip-tied at the Republican Convention (yes, in MN, I’m ashamed to say) and had their credentials ripped from their necks.

    Ok. I watched one minute of the Ziegler video, and I have to give the cop props for showing admirable restraint. I would have punched Ziegler. “You are breaking all KINDS of CONSTITUTIONAL laws!” Sez Ziegler. “I am NOT moving.”

There are getting to be increased amounts of Alaskans who are realizing just what a total “CON” AND “WACK JOB” she has been.

    What a nutjob.

    He’s smiling and laughing the entire time. He’s constantly challenging the police with “tell me why” etc.

    Apparently the guy was NOT recognized media, was NOT in the designated media area and was accosting people entering the Walter Conkrite Media Awards. They don’t know what he was asking them but I did hear something about “she” being there. Would that be…..a blogger? Getting an award.

    The cameraman made a point to zero in on one of the cop’s jackets to get his name. Also after Ziegler was arrested, he resisted and would not move, fell down, was eventually moved to a fence (continuing to smile and laugh) and when the police asked the cameraman to turn the camera off, they didn’t. They just lowered it continuing the sound and pictures of feet. When Ziegler finally agreed to leave, the cops physically turned the camera off, but they continue to roll sound. Off campus, they took pictures of Ziegler’s poor, poor hurt wrists. Which wouldn’t have hurt if he hadn’t resisted arrest.

    What a fruitcake. Typical right wing whacko.

    Those exact words need to be crammed up her ass – sideways.

  422. Marnie says:

    Is the legislature’s rejection really unprecedented? Has a governor’s nominee never been rejected before? (Not counting yesterday. Of course.)
    It not a biggy, issue wise, but sounds a little over draymatic.

    One of the characteristics of “representing a constituency’ is that, generally the further down the pyramid you go the better the local representation is.

    I do not doubt that Sarah believes what Sarah believes, but believing doesn’t make it true.

    Maybe Sarah has an idee fixe about Jiminy Cricket.

  423. Martha Unalaska Yard Sign says:

    Nah, not Stevens – he’s too feisty and doesn’t play well with others, too also. That would REALLY make Alaska’s politics look like a TV reality show, a very bad one. That’s another reason Rick Svobodny would never be appointed – he’s no Sarah’s pocket kind of guy.

    There are many qualified attorneys in Alaska, we have more than our fair share of lawyers ! Not that she’ll find a good one – her parameters are guns, sovereignty, drilling & mining everything in sight, and a disdain for native Alaskans. Her rural advisor, native himself, has turned out to be a huge dud – kind of like the main DUD.

    I don’t think she cares much about running for gov in 2010 so she’s just going to continue to be bi*chy and impossible to get along with. As many pundits have said “once you go national, what you did as gov doesn’t really matter – esp. AK because it’s so far away”. Heard it again on C Matthews today, heard it before. That doesn’t say a lot for the integrity of national politics, does it?

  424. va_soccer_mom says:

What’s so funny now is that her zealot whack bots think she should now NOT run for Gov since Alaska is so inhospitable to her AND the Legislature nothing but a kangaroo court (and don’t forget the RINO traitor republicans here) so she should just get out and just go “national”.

    Congratulation, Alaska! As many in the lower 48 have done since your Guv got within a heartbeat of the presidency, I read everyday Mudflats and Alaskan news sites, keeping a wary eye lest she raise her head. I’ve grown fond and impressed with the spirit and intelligence of Alaskans, and so sad at the disaster governing you. Today your legislature did you proud, and the roar of pleasure for you is sounding all the way through the lower 48. We’re with you in spirit.

    Way to go Alaska Leg!! There is hope for you yet.
    I am still astonished at the number of votes WAR did get, really a sad state of affairs.

    This makes strike 3 for GINO (this week alone) but we still don’t hear any Umps calling YOU’RE OUT! What’s up with that?
    How many strikes does this WACKO get before someone finally takes her out of the game?

    How far does she have to push before Alaska pushes back and she gets knocked off her stage and onto her @ss?

    I wonder what names she’ll offer up next for AG and Senate…

    I can see her thought processes in action….”I’ll just keep pushing my picks and sooner or later they will have to confirm one. I can outlast any of those law abiding legislatures, they’ll just be too tired to keep rejecting everyone. ”

    HOLD ON!
    STAND YOUR GROUND!!
    DON”T LET HER WEAR YOU DOWN!!!

  431. UK Lady says:

    This was just posted as a phone call between Gino and ADN

    Palin said the legislators who voted no didn’t make themselves look good by rejecting an attorney general who strongly supports the issues important to Alaskans – gun rights, constitutional rights and developing the state’s resources.

    “I think there was a lot of politics of personal destruction involved in this and that’s a shame. …I am surprised that, for what I believe is some personal petty political reasons, some lawmakers chose not to support a candidate who fit that bill,” she said in a telephone interview.

    Palin said the “hypocrisy” is that the state House last year unanimously passed a citation praising Ross as a distinguished Alaskan and vocal proponent of free speech whose career has been dedicated to defending individual rights.

    “The hypocrisy there is quite glaring. I believe they need to be called out on that,” Palin said.

    In Juneau- Thanks for being positive- this is a time for celebration and confidence in our Legislature. But as for the stimulus monies for education and social services, doesn’t Palin have to direct her departments to request it?

    SARAH (YOU’RE A FINE GIRL)
    (sung to the Looking Glass song “Brandy (You’re a Fine Girl)”)

    (doo da in doo da da), (doo da in doo da da)

    There’s a town not far from Bristol Bay
    With strip malls, both near and far away
    Lonely oil guys go the Wasilla way
    And live in motor homes

    And there’s a girl in this forlorn town
    One time, she wore a pageant crown
    They say “Sarah, please put that gun down”
    She knows she’s just a punch-line

    The oil guys say “Sarah, you’re a fine girl” (you’re a fine girl)
    “What a good Prez you would be” (such a fine girl)
    “Not here, but maybe somewhere overseas”
    (doo da in doo da da), (doo da in doo da da)

    Sarah, sports a beehive mane
    And some rimless glasses but she has no brain
    A locket that bears the name
    Of the man that Sarah loves

    He came on a winter’s day
    On board his gas-powered sleigh
    What he saw in her, Todd couldn’t say
    Cuz he was drunk since he left home

    The First Dude said “Sarah, you’re a fine girl” (you’re a fine girl)
    “What a good wife you would be” (such a fine girl)
    But it’s booze, snow-machining and pornos for me
    (doo da in doo da da), (doo da in doo da da)

    But Sarah looked into his eyes
    And she took an inventory
    She could feel something on him rise
    Then she saw his morning glory
    She said “To hell with abstinence!”, lord, she jumped on that sad-sack
    And before she could say “Stop!”, she had Track.
    (doo da in doo da da), (doo da in doo da da)

    Todd, had a loaded pistol
    Sarah gave birth to a daughter, Bristol
    She too had an ac-ci-den-tal
    And now you hear her say…

    You hear her say “Mama, you’re a fine girl” (you’re a fine girl)
    “Two peas in a pod aren’t we” (such a fine girl)
    “But Ya Betcha we have a screwed-up family”
    (doo da in doo da da), (doo da in doo da da)

    “Sarah, you’re a fine girl” (you’re a fine girl)
    [FADE]

    “What a good Prez you would be” (such a fine girl)
    “No not here, but maybe somewhere overseas”

    “Palin Circus Update

    Just one more day in the bizarre politics of Alaska. There’s a fight over who to appoint to an open state Senate seat. Well, let’s just let Mudflats tell the rest:…”

    Just caught the last of Hardball w/ chris mathews (who has a hard-on for GINO BTW!)anyway, a woman was talking about how she is blowing it “having a fight in a sandbox with a 19 yr old kid” and burning bridges in Alaska, and the other guys there says “So what? If she runs for prez what does she care about Alaska?”
    I was speechless! This guys is not Alaskan, but Everyone can see she is throwing Alaska under the bus, big time. I don’t know why the Leg. doesn’t start impeachment against her. As Levi said, “she changed, after she lost”.

    #19 Ratfish Says: April 16th, 2009 at 2:40 PM

    First time in Alaska history that a cabinet nominee was rejected.

    First time an Alaskan governor was AWOL during the last 3 days of a legislative session.

    Are the two related?

    Yes, wise words indeed. Thank you.

    I had similar deep thoughts in mind when I wrote my OWN Senator and Rep today to thank them by name for their No vote (yay!). Then I wrote another message to all the rest of the legislators, praising the courage of those who said no (and by omission, hopefully shaming the rest).

  439. Clearly, she has no clue. And really, side issues? Does she really consider his stance on rape and gender bias to be side issues that no one cares about? Oh, good grief.

    One thing is certain – she just keeps digging the hole deeper and deeper. Here’s hoping it caves in on her before she does any more damage. (And I do mean that as it applies to politics, not literally.)

    We are witnessing SP Gino materialize into little more than a Lame Duck leader of her own making. She wasn’t fit to run Wasilla. She isn’t fit to run Alaska.
    ___________________

    More and more, she’s like a point guard who cannot dribble. She really misplayed this opportunity. I can feel a shift in the political momentum. Time to send the under-performing point guard back to the bench. She’s not fit to play the game.

  443. AlaskaGuy says:

    She believed she knew, when clearly she doesn’t. But will she learn? Nope.

  444. sauerkraut says:

    She believed she knew….

    I know there’s a joke in there somewhere. Ah well… too bad she didn’t say something like “I thought I knew. …” Then I’d really be able to make fun of her.

    Well played, ladies and gentlemen of the legislature. Way to stand up for your constituents! Rejecting mediocrity is always a good thing.

  445. austintx says:

    Any politician worth a s^*t that thought for a second that their nominee was in trouble would have been down at the Leg. lobbying and twisting arms like a mofo. On top of not doing that , sarah left the state !! Lame – lame – lame………..

  446. InJuneau says:

    doug–well the good thing about her vetoing $ is that the Legislature can always (with a 2/3 yes vote of each house) call themselves into a special session and vote to override those vetoes!

  447. Sue says:

    SP: “I believed I knew what Alaskans wanted. . .”

    Sarah obviously doesn’t know what Alaskans want…not that she cares. Sarah does what Sarah wants; to heck with everybody else.

  448. mlaiuppa says:

    OR

    It could be that the people’s elected representatives know what their constituents want more than the Governor does. And acted accordingly.

    Now on to getting Juneau a representative.

  449. doug says:

    The downside is she is so stupid and vindictive that payback is imminent. We’re going to see her veto pen, you betcha, to punish the non-compliant legislators, so Alaska will lose a good share of the stimulus monies and they will see line-item cuts in their districts. She’s surely not done messing with Juneau’s empty Senate seat, either. Maybe her predictable reactions will finally get voters to recognize how small-minded and incompetent she is and recall her.

  450. michigander says:

    So pleased that enough of the legislature DID listen to their constituents. Alaskans should be proud, you made your voices heard. Keep it up, you CAN and DID make a difference.

    Good idea to email thanks to the nay voters.

    Guns and abortion are the only issues Palin is concerned with. That is what she said in her response. Her brain can’t handle more than that. That is her platform and where we can expect to find her.

  457. eastcoast says:

    Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.

    Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.

    But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate — we can not consecrate — we can not hallow — this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us — that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion — that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain — that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom — and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.

    She really does not like to be told what to do and she must be in control. I could not figure out why her and McCain were bragging they were Mavericks.

Do you really want someone who will not listen to other ideas besides their own? Must be not too many people have told her no in her life, and if they did I bet they paid big time.

  473. austintx says:

    Remember sarah said she learned everything from sports ?? It brought the following to mind :

    “Turn out the lights. The party’s over”
    “The Party’s Over” is a 1967 song from music legend Willie Nelson. Former SMU and Dallas Cowboys quarterback and former Monday Night Football announcer “Dandy” Don Meredith would sing “Turn out the lights, the party’s over…” near the end of every Monday night game. If one team was getting crushed, the song would come out well before the end of regulation time. It was Meredith’s way of saying “stick a fork in him—he’s done.”

  474. Mattie in IA says:

    I am so proud of you Alaskans today. I could not believe you would actually confirm that nut case. And I noticed she had to get that life remark in there.

    …snip…

    “Now, for example, Palin is raising hackles for naming colorful crackpot Wayne Anthony Ross to be Alaska’s attorney general. It turns out that Palin may have consulted with Ross over a state senate appointment, a move that would have been against state law. As a general matter, state law is something you might want your AG to be on top of.”

    I’m so thankful that there are still some reasonable Republicans out there. Sadly, our representitives from the Mat-Su are behind her all the way. The silly thing is they are probably afraid they’d be getting a call from Todd if they ever went against her.

  504. regina says:

    GINO is like a broken record:

    “Wayne Anthony Ross supports responsible, ethical development of Alaska’s rich resources.”

    “Tim Grussendorf supports responsible, ethical development of Alaska’s rich resources.”

    “Joe Nelson supports responsible, ethical development of Alaska’s rich resources.”

    She’s stuck on this soundbite. Please somebody give her a good shove!

  505. Sharon Alexander says:

    I noticed Doodoo was on the side of the Angels in this instance. That doesn’t excuse him outing AKM, but maybe there is hope for him, yet.

    He is usually on the right side of the issues, imho. That’s why the rest of him is so disappointing. AKM

  507. AlaskaDisasta says:

    The little woman should have studied basic arithmetic in school. With over 1/3 rejecting the bigot and less than 1/4 supporting the bigot, and presuming they are indeed doing their jobs reflecting the wishes of their constituents, then it would appear that her recent choices are actually NOT WHAT ALASKANS WANT! Her choices just reflect WHAT SHE WANTS. LIttle Miss Pageant Girl should have stuck to what she does best – snowing dumb men and like women.

    Congratulations Alaska.
    Maybe there is some truth in the old saying.

    LOL

  509. Writing from Alaska says:

    Her comments are a clear indication of the obvious – that she considers Native issues (among all the other things) to be ‘side issues’. Couldn’t be more blatant.

  510. Tealwomin says:

    1. “I believed I knew what Alaskans wanted when I selected…”

    2. “I’m surprised that legislators in this case really did not seem to represent their constituents and allowed themselves to be swayed by side issues.”

    We know who DID NOT represent their constituents & who did…

    I believed I knew
    I’m surprised

    Thank the universe! Some of the same ppl who voted & help to elect her Gov, TODAY voted against her ‘beliefs’

    REAL WORLD, meet GiNO

    Side issues like human rights. You know, stupid things. He may be held in high esteem by many Alaskans, but it looks like he’s held in contempt by even more.

    Sarah, may I call you Sarah? I have a little heartfelt advice for you: STFU. Also.

    Definition of Attorney General (Wiki)

    In most common law jurisdictions the attorney general is the main legal advisor to the government- additionally he or she may have executive responsibility for law enforcement or responsibility for public prosecutions.

    Where in this does it say the AG has anything to do with natural resources?
    And has Roe v Wade been dismissed in Alaska? Also, has the second Amendment been discarded and only WAR and Sarah know about it?

    Sarah needs to stop. Really. I mean it . . . .

  516. Moose Pucky says:

    What a nice target list of “yea” votes for the next election cycle!

  517. Basheert from Arizona says:

    Thanks Martha – wasn’t sure what you were referring to.

    I still think she’s highly dangerous right now – she has anger issues anyway. Let’s hope she blows her speech tonite.

    What a fruitcake she turned out to be!

  519. Janet in Texas says:

    Looks like SarahSugarbritches is done just like her buddy Rick Perry here in Texas. Bye Bye to both of you and GOOD RIDDANCE !

    Now I’m back to lovin Alaska again. Once Palin is gone for good, I will revisit my dream to move from Texas to Alaska.

  520. Sharon Alexander says:

    GINO Sarah Palin is “TWITTERPATED”!!!

    I suggest, as an interested observer, that she be given one more chance to get it right and pick a Senator from the list she was given by the Democrats. If she fails to fulfill her obligation under Alaskan law to appoint someone from that list, then IMPEACH or RECALL her. The woman is as mad as a March Hare and needs serious help.

    May I also say that Alaskans should be proud that they called her bluff today. You know what good government should be, and you showed the world that you won’t settle for anything less.

  521. Martha Unalaska Yard Sign says:

    @ Basheert from Arizona

    This is ONE of the comments I’ve come across:

    “Just another example of why Gov. Palin should NOT run for a second term. Get a good team around you and go national. The time is now.”

  529. wellfleet guy says:

    Watching from afar, I’m very, very pleased to see this announcement. The Alaska Legislature is getting a work out this season and so far as I can tell, voting the will of their constituents — bravo. Seems incredible that Mrs. Palin can’t grasp it … but she obviously acknowledges (which surprised me) that she is out of tune with Alaskans. For her to not see this coming, and stating her surprise, does support a division between how she sees the state being governed and how the people see the state being governed. That’s quite an admission.

    Congratulations to everyone who fought so hard to make WAR history.

  530. Alaskan Sisu says:

    Yeah, I’ll be thanking all of the Legislators that had on their “listening ears” and saw the red flags attaching themselves to this biggot. He put Archie Bunker to shame yaknow? This was indeed a very timely message to send to the governor. Her wing nuts turned to scare tactics in support of WAR, i.e. you are going to lose your hunting and fishing rights and you are going to lose your guns, so the pressure was on. Believe me, the Governor offered a full court behind the scenes press to have him confirmed.

  531. Basheert from Arizona says:

    Martha Unalaska Yard Sign: Could you pls define “go national”??? Aside from POTUS (where she’s going to truly be a laughing stock), and it’s a bit early for that – where should she go? (and yes I know we all have some good suggestions).

    People are right when they say that the right wing wackos are loud but small. In order to actually WIN a national office, you must have crossover votes.

    This defeat will drive her to something not very pleasant – she is in a really bad way right now. Think…of a badly wounded animal – a big nasty mad hurt animal…got it? That’s your Governor.

    She’s going to try and take some revenge.
    The legislators definitely need thanks from everyone. I know those of us from the Lower 48 would express our support, but they don’t work for us so we don’t count.

    We’ve got your back friends!

  532. katiebegood says:

    First time in Alaska history that a cabinet nominee was rejected.

    Wow, I guess it was unprecedented. That also says something really loud that Ms. Palin needs to hear. I doubt she will, though.

  533. pacos_gal says:

    She didn’t and doesn’t know what Alaskans want and she didn’t and doesn’t know what the rest of the United States want either.

  534. BigPete says:

    Hey Palin!

    Here’s a little something to cheer you up. I believe.

  535. katiebegood says:

    Side issues? Like being concerned if you’re a lawmaker who might be breaking the LAW?

    I’m thinking that was the “straw that broke the camel’s back” for some of the Republican legislators.

  536. Blooper says:

    “Wayne Anthony Ross supports responsible, ethical development of Alaska’s rich resources.”

    NEWS FLASH FOR PALIN: The AG is not in charge of resource development! Someone needs to sit down with her, get out the ol’ family dictionary, and read to her (since she can’t seem to be able to read herself) the definition of Attorney General. And while they’re at it, they should refresh her on the “what it is exactly” that a VP and Governor does as well.

  537. katiebegood says:

    How is it an “unprecedented move”. Has the legislature never before denied an AG nomination?

    And I got news for you GINO, these legislators were representing their constituents because they got an earful and figured out that their constituents didn’t want this man anywhere near the AG position.

  538. Martha Unalaska Yard Sign says:

    She lies and twists, as usual, so easy to recognize and pick apart…however, I noticed this isn’t SP in full snarky regalia. Either it will get worse as she embellishes and makes up more lies about what Alaskans want, or else she’s a bit tired. I think her feet hurt from stomping, and her scalp, too from pulling her hair out, there too also. Her mouth is ready to freeze in the WAAAAAH! position.

    Oh well, a day breather and a good day it is! What’s so funny now is that her zealot whack bots think she should now NOT run for Gov since Alaska is so inhospitable to her AND the Legislature nothing but a kangaroo court (and don’t forget the RINO traitor republicans here) so she should just get out and just go “national”. In other words, they are realizing that with any proximity to the twit, she comes undone and all the veneer just peels off. Better to whisk her off to a stage somewhere, away from reporters and office staff who might talk – so they can still pretend she stands for something but they can cover up all of her personality traits that are so damning.

    I say GOOD LUCK! She won’t be able to separate her snarkiness from her politics – it’s who she is. Rather, it’s WHAT she is! Go Sarah – you just keep up those vendettas, the personal nasty blogging on your state website, your snarkiness to the Legislature, your hatred of the press – it’s all doing you NO good but it’s helping our cause tremendously, I applaud the whack job gov for being so consistently twisted!

  539. Ratfish says:

    First time in Alaska history that a cabinet nominee was rejected.

    First time an Alaskan governor was AWOL during the last 3 days of a legislative session.

    Are the two related?

  540. Fosbury Gold says:

    I really think Sarah is starting to crack up.

    She may be in need of an exorcism. Stay tuned.

  541. Professor Geezer says:

    Here’s why it really hurts SP. It comes a day after the great nat’l “tea-bagging” event. If anything, you would think her wingnuttery would have some momentum, right? But no!
    WAR couldn’t win even after that Fox News sponsored event (see Jon Stewart/Daily Show for more on how FOX sponsored Teabagging!)

    So she has totally lost cachet at both the national and state level. I agree with tspey: Palin is a Lame Duck gov. now.

  542. Aussie Blue Sky says:

    I’m sure the legislators will feel the love, when their constituents who’ve been calling and emailing them thank them for a job well done.

    And Alaskans should also too write Mrs Palin and tell her what Alaskans want, since she admits she has no idea.

  543. Fish Hawk Road Jody says:

    Hey Sarah, how many constituents do you have in Indiana??!! She’s one to talk about representing Alaskans when her narrow behind is elsewhere. Boooo to Palin and Yayyyy for the Alaskan legs that told her NO!

  544. Lori in Los Angeles says:

    Judging from her statement, GINO seems to believe that the good people of Alaska care only about guns, anti-abortion and more development. She does not comprehend the hearts and minds of the people, even those in her home State. This is exactly why her political career will never go National – that anti-abortion, gun-toting base is just not big enough. They are loud, but they are way in the minority.

  545. Irishgirl says:

    Having reread her statement, it appears to me that she doesn’t even know what an AG’s responsibilites are!!

  546. Nebraska Native says:

    Goodness, she lives in an alternate universe doesn’t she? Ah, but tonight, Alaska celebrates and Sarah? Too bad you aren’t there to join them 🙂 Also.

  547. CrabbyPatty says:

    Ah, vintage Palin. Complain about the outcome and blame others, i.e. “side issues.” And what about that opening line “an unprecidented move ….” c’mon after failing with the Juneau situation, she should be used to being shut down.

  548. Leota2 says:

    Jeez . . . .
    Wasn’t this man supposed to be the Attorney General?! What would he have had to do with Alaska’s natural resources except to try to legally exploit them for Sarah and deny Native Alaskans access.
    Palin is a NUTCASE and doesn’t really know humans at all . . . .
    Ditch this boil . . . .

  549. WakeUpAmerica says:

    ” I’m surprised that legislators in this case really did not seem to represent their constituents ” SP

    Uhhh, I think that may be a description of Ms. Palin, SWMBO (She Who Must Be Obeyed)

  550. Blooper says:

    Ahem, “defender of life”? That’s not exactly something I would call someone who slaughters animals for sport.

  551. Irishgirl says:

    “I’m surprised that legislators in this case really did not seem to represent their constituents”
    ————————————————-

    Oh but they did Gov!!! They listened to their constituents…did you not hear them talking about all the emails they received?

  552. tspey says:

    We are witnessing SP Gino materialize into little more than a Lame Duck leader of her own making. She wasn’t fit to run Wasilla. She isn’t fit to run Alaska.

  553. austintx says:

    HEY sarah :

  554. Basheert from Arizona says:

    Love it – your legislators were “swayed by side issues”? Translation: bad boys didn’t do what Mama said so Mama’s gonna spank you”.

    Has she ever made sense in her life?

  555. zyggy says:

    obviously, she doesn’t know Alaskans like she should. Bravo Alaskans, you did the right thing.

    Palin is a sore loser, but I don’t care right now, I’m just to damn happy for all of you.

  556. Basheert from Arizona says:

    …AND???

  557. DonnaInMichigan says:

    Did not seem to represent their constituents?

    Oh Sarah…I believe that is EXACTLY what they did.
