What Sarah Palin Really Is: In Short, Fact Based Paragraphs, The Fraud Is Revealed. My first
Edited on Sun Apr-24-11 06:32 PM by louslobbs
Credit: People For Real Change

Palin post, the ugly, factual truth about an American woman from Alaska: a fake, phony, and one of the biggest frauds to have entered American politics, ever. There's a lot of (R)Scott Walker (WI) in this woman and in many of the Republican polititcians in positions of power, in this new, corporate, millionaire, billionaire ruled America.

Sarah Palin actually has a LOT of political experience -- a dozen years in office. And during all of that time, she has consistently abused her power, feathered her own nest, lied, flirted with a radical secessionist group, and used government to reward her friends and punish her enemies.

One thing she is NOT is a regular Joe (or Jane) Sixpack. Palin majored in Broadcast Journalism, worked in TV, and was trained by Newt Gingrich's GOPAC political action committee over a decade ago, which is why she's so good at political debates, delivering speeches and not answering questions.

"I'm still proud of Sarah, but she scares the bejeebers out of me." - Laura Chase, her 1996 campaign manager

"She's the world's worst multi-tasker. She'll have a cell phone in one hand, the BlackBerry in the other while she is reading two position papers. You have to tell her prior to the debate, 'Put that down, breathe deep.' They are not going to know that." - a former aide

1. What Sarah Palin is, is irrelevant.

8. So, she is still relevant regardless of your predictions. You believe she is irrelevant and on a
ship that has sailed, that is your story, and you are entitled to it. Many believe the opposite of what you say, and they are entitled to their beliefs. That's the beauty of this "disagreement" thing, we can agree to disagree. Neither of us is right or wrong.

She will have a lingering effect on all those who are left in the race.

107. Isn't it interesting that evil "has a lingering effect", but a GOOD, like Edwards pushing on poverty
left NO effect whatsoever.

:cry:

And, no, that is NOT an invitation to bash Edwards... it is the grief of a poor person who was needing a champion... a spokesperson. THAT is what needs to be related to.

6. I think even the GOP realizes that she's a joke and a lightweight.
Although I will concede that, to that extremely racist tea party candidate, she is the "fantasy wife" to "Millions of American men".

7. This is not how you win a nomination:
Edited on Sun Apr-24-11 02:38 PM by Davis_X_Machina
From Salon:

The NBC News/Wall Street Journal survey found the former Alaska governor's popularity at all-time low, with just 25 percent of Americans expressing a positive opinion of her -- and 53 percent a negative one. This was the worst score for any of the American politicians measured... and represented an 18-point spike since last September in Palin's negative rating

12. I agree, it's not, but just because she won't be President, doesn't mean she can't do damage to our
country with a following of vicious, hateful lunatics who believe everything she says, factual or not, mostly not.

10. Agreed, but further than that, she is a desperate liar with a rabid following, until she has no hand
in politics anywhere in this country, I will beware the danger of her and of people like her. I believe the GOP realizes that she is a joke, but I believe she is still somewhat of a danger to our democracy. I will be watchful of her actions, as long as they have any impact on this country, whether she's in a position of power or not.

but I certainly concur about keeping an eye on what she's up to.

13. I def agree with you, but now that she has millions, the next step is to get more power to get more
millions, that's how the pubes generally work. More power, more corporate contacts, more political contacts and lots of damage can be done behind the scenes.

94. I get your point though and know you were just using that phrase to show how she effects you
she effects many people that way, including myself. There was one point, when the media was relentlessly reporting on her.......what she said, what she did, what her hair looked like, who wrote her books for her, where she was going, why she was relevant, why she was unpopular and on and on and on, I had some momentary thoughts of my own. Thanks for your post.

95. What is it with these whiny Muffies???
I saw the lady that does the voice of Lois Griffin on Family Guy.
She was on Keith Olbermann's show demonstrating the voice.
I watched her. You have to be nasal, clench your teeth, because you're always stressed out, and somehow swallow your voice at the same time.

Watching her, I can do a decent "Petah! Petah Griffin! What do yuh think you're doing?"
I'm not sure how much of it is tense Muffy and how much is New England accent.

:rofl:

However, Caribou Barbie could drive some people to murder. In a short time.

minutes of her shrilling at high volume, and all the beans would be spilled.

97. They're pretty much out of their minds, they do have their facts down though, you know, the FOX/GOP
lies, their birther crap, their crap about taxes, the bullshit about the separation of church and state and all of the other nutty hateful and racist shit they spew from their mouth spouts. I've actually had dreams of a large group of about 100,000 standing together in their hateful solidarity, the power of the universe gives me the power to cast a spell on all of them, so I say, everyone here who has a huvaround, gets medicare and medicaid, gets social security, gets disability, hates Obama, hates black people, hates mexicans, hates gays, hates jews, has a hat on, is way overweight, can't read or write the english language, has a gun, has a bible, owns a sweaty tank top, picks their toe nails, didn't finish 8th grade, has false teeth, is wearing the same underware as yesterday, is not wearing a bra, didn't shower this morn, has yellowed corn like teeth, has greasy hair, has a full beard, is wearing sunglasses and just got off of a Koch sponsored bus.......may you all be turned to dust.........and poof, all of that ugliness disappears. I've had this dream several times and I always wake up refreshed.

22. Sara Palin is a convenient distraction. When ready Rove will bring her down in a heartbeat.
I imagine he has a lot on her.

She was put on the ticket in 2008 as a joke by our corporate overlords along with sadsack McCain. The overlords decided that the best way to shut up the American public that was sick of Bush was to let them have their Obama. Then make them sorry. The Republicans in Congress are working to that script. Because Pres Obama hasnt done them too much damage they may wait until 2016 to bring out Jeb "the smart son" Bush. At that time Karl will make minced-meat of the clowns pretenders to the crown.

I agree that Palin is relevant to the tea-bagger gullibles. But they will follow whoever the overlords tell them too.
The Republicans (those in power not the gullibles) arent going to elect a female, especially one as uppity as Palin. They will keep her around until she isnt needed then kiss her goodbye.

16. Just look at how a large portion of the American public vote, that should tell us all about the
intelligence level of Americans. Why else would so many, continue to vote against their best interests, and elect those who try to force through policy that will only make their lives more difficult and painful? We live in an America where there are fewer and fewer critical thinkers and people who believe falsehoods and lies over fact.

where people could read all about who and what she is, in one place. This is my first post about her and will be my last. She is relevant to the extent that she has many followers and many of those are as dangerous as her.

21. Best line:
' But very few will flat-out lie to your face, when it's easy to prove that they are lying, and keep doing it even after they have been caught. Sarah Palin is that kind of liar.'

38. I Know! I've seen others, from other angles, but this one
you can really hear the kind of panic in her voice, as she tries to act like it doesn't bother her. Ha Ha!!

I don't know if she's irrelevant or not, I remember way back in the 70s when SNL first started and Ronald Reagan was a punchline.

It may just be that collectively watching her crash and burn will be an important cautionary tale for America.

39. I agree, you can hear the panic, it was nice to hear, she should fear the awakening of the real
grassroots rather than the Koch sponsored astroturf groups who lap up everything she says. All of those Union members surrounding the baggers must have shocked her since she's used to speaking to the sheep. Also, with the internet, it's easy to expose a person for who they really are and we didn't have that luxury when Regan was starting to be taken seriously. I look forward however, to her crash and burn, but will watch closely until the final embers have burned out.

43. I'm curious about one thing
you say at the beginning that there were "lot of wild or unproven rumors thrown around about Palin when she was first announced, notably that baby Trig was actually her daughter's (clearly not true)" then go on to talk about what a big liar, phony and crook she is. I've never seen anything to prove that the rumors about Trig are "clearly not true". In fact there are a lot of anomalies with that pregnancy and delivery, none of which have ever been explained or even acknowledged by her and there is still a lot of doubt about who the child's mother really is.

Other than that and if you had left out the (clearly not true) bit, its a very good read.

67. I beg to differ with you......
One thing she is NOT is a regular Joe (or Jane) Sixpack. Palin majored in Broadcast Journalism, worked in TV, and was trained by Newt Gingrich's GOPAC political action committee over a decade ago, which is why she's so good at political debates, delivering speeches and not answering questions.

She isn't good at political debates. Any moron can talk to morons and make morons believe in lies. Palin is a ignorant bitch with horns same as her sister Bachman. No one has come forward to challenge either of them one on one to prove what a bitch really is like. Devils wives

86. I've never considered her a viable candidate ever on any level, my post just gave information about
Palin, I'm an independant, have never voted Republicon and now, because of their craziness, would never, ever consider one. They lie, cheat, manipulate and are total hypocrites. Most of what comes out of her mouth and the mouths of most thugs are lies, more lies and half truths (which are very rare). My point was, she's good a political speeches and "not answering questions". In retrospect, she is only good at spewing red meat to her base and she does not give "good" political speeches. I have never thought of her as a credible candidate for the Presidency, but her politics do work with those followers who share her warped vision of America. Thanks for the comment Butchie boy.

101. Where, may I see some examples? You seem to have an anger problem and you want to create battles
that don't exist. You are creating your own story in your head, to satisfy your need to be right and make someone else wrong. Anyone who has not agreed with me, has been treated with nothing but respect and If they thought they weren't, I certainly don't think they want an angry big mouth like you fighting their battles. Your type creates more problems then you solve, you don't diffuse a situation, you try to throw gasoline on the fire you start. Sorry "Honey", go sell your anger and crazy somewhere else, I'm not buying. You're time has expired. And yes, this time, the "Honey" was exactly what it was, happy now, you're right and someone else is wrong. Now, take a sedative and relax.

103. Anyone here on DU who has ever read my interactions with others here knows that I show nothing but
respect to those I share with. I always say thank you and I usually answer everyone who comments directly. Even in this post, you can see all of the replies, no snark and no name calling and no nefarious comments whatever. I have asked Texasgal, to give me examples of her unfounded claims, but she is having a difficult time, because it's hard to find what it not there. I'm sorry for her, maybe she's having a bad day, maybe she created the upset for herself because that's just what she does. I just want everyone to know, I have nothing but respect for all of you here, we may not always agree, but we are civil and for the most part respect each other. I have no idea why Texasgal has chosen to create and take on a battle that does not exist, but most of you know me and know the truth about my behavior on DU. Thanks for reading this. And please notice, Texasgal still has not shown one item to back up her accusation and that's because she has none.

111. I don't think you realize, that your posts come across as unhinged, you come across as angry, as
your exclamation points in the post, suggest a person out of control and screaming. I'm sorry you are having a bad day, but you should really choose your battles more wisely, for instance, make sure first and foremost that they involve you, the only reason you are involved here, is because you created it. If Butch had a problem with me, he would have said so and if I offended him in any way, I would have apologized. The only one who took offense to anything, was you. I don't think your a bad person, you're just not having a good day, we all have those days. I have no ill will toward you, I have great empathy for those who are suffering in the moment. So take a deep breath, and know, I'm on your side, not against you.

104. Oh, she's definitely a piece of work.
You've just scratched the surface.

What is really alarming to me is the way she was able to dupe the good citizens of Alaska into giving her an 85% approval rating at one time. She was so clever at controlling the message that we had no idea until the Republican Convention that she was such a b****.

I blame Wasilla for turning her loose on the world. People out there knew what she was all about but they were either complicit or too afraid to say anything.
