Like Sarah Palin said last night, mayors have Actual Responsibilities, unlike community organizers who just help poor people stay alive after their steel plant jobs are outsourced. And Sarah Palin’s responsibilities included funding “the meth capitol of Alaska,” as Alaskan State Troopers call the Wasilla region: “When authorities surrounded a converted bus housing a meth operation in Big Lake in January, a 13-year-old boy who answered the door bragged that his mom cooked the best meth in the valley, according to the troopers.” See? In Alaska, “Hockey Mom” is code for “Arctic Meth Princess.” [Andrew Sullivan]

    oh, now, how often does a 13 year old compliment his mother? We should celebrate this close mother-son bond. They clearly spend quality time together.

  • NoWireHangers

    Well, if Palin makes it to Washington, this could really turn around the economy in the district and get crack off the streets once and for all

  • shoeho

    I was wondering when the media was going to get around to reporting on Wasilla’s relationship with BigPharma.

  • Vanity Smurf

    I’m going to re-watch “Pink Flamingos” tonight while McNasty tries not to have a stroke on stage. It really does crystalize everything about this ticket.

    So that’s why she was messing with the State Troopers… they were interfering with business.

  • Cape Clod

    Why is this not in the least concievable way, suprising?

    Why are you unable to see the accomplishment of making Wasilla one of the premier meth addiction sites in the nation?

    Maybe she is ready to step up to the big leagues. If she doesn’t pan out as VP, I hear that Detroit could use a mayor.

    To be totally fair, I’m not sure that Alaska State Troopers are the most unbiased source of Sarah Palin news right now…

    …which is totally why Our Wonkette needs to fly up there and interview them right now! Let’s see some undercover video of the Palin Memorial Meth Kitchen and Bible Study Group in action!

  • Godless Liberal *

    I’ll just throw this out there:

    Bristol Palin is not pregnant. She is smuggling ten pounds of pure Alaska Moose into Minnestoa, in her uterus.

  • NoWireHangers

    [re=84377]Cogito Ergo Bibo[/re]: That video is pretty cute. It’s great because you can see that the little girl will be prepared for her own child at the age of 13.

  • stew

    Drugs, teen sex–gonna buy me a plain ticket fast!

  • Neilist

    Well, the meth thing DOES explain why Sarah was able to keep her figure after whelping the four (or five? or six?) pups that she did.

    And all that “energy” she reportedly has?


  • tunamelt

    Whatever, what is the being the meth capital of Alaska compared to the 909 in California. WHATEVER!

    There is probably more meth in one garage in Riverside than in all of Wasilla.

    And Arizona is the #1 meth state in America. Again, soulmates.

  • S.Luggo

    [re=84369]Vanity Smurf[/re]: Is “stroke” code for “a hit of meth”. I don’t get it. No, seriously.

  • grendel

    [re=84388]tunamelt[/re]: You are being totally patronizing and sexist… Can’t you see the executive leadership needed to make Wasilla the meth capital of Alaska?

  • grendel

    [re=84390]Canmon (the Inadequate)[/re]: No, because community organizers don’t have, you know, responsibilities

  • Miller

    The meth capitol of Alaska, so what’s that, like one guy doing meth? I knew that cheery demeanor wasn’t natural. Someone check if those teeth are real.

  • Uncle Al

    Somebody better keep an eye on Cindy. She’s got one o’ them addictive personalities, and she’s awful skinny. But she isn’t using Sarah as a meth mule, as far as I know….

    Georgia Republican Rep. Lynn Westmoreland used the racially-tinged term “uppity” to describe Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama Thursday.

    Westmoreland was discussing vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin’s speech with reporters outside the House chamber and was asked to compare her with Michelle Obama.

    “Just from what little I’ve seen of her and Mr. Obama, Sen. Obama, they’re a member of an elitist-class individual that thinks that they’re uppity,” Westmoreland said.

    Asked to clarify that he used the word “uppity,” Westmoreland said, “Uppity, yeah.”

  • ReverendGreen

  • Cogito Ergo Bibo

    [re=84400]grendel[/re]: One of the bloggies had an awesome quote found among contributor emails, this morning. It went something along the line of, “Lest we forget, Jesus was a community organizer; Pontius Pilate was a mayor.”

  • PrairiePossum

    [re=84390]Canmon (the Inadequate)[/re]:

    Curious to know if Mayor Sarah had a “just say no to drugs” policy similiar to her “just say no to sex” policy. If so, it explains alot.

  • 4tehlulz

    [re=84416]Cogito Ergo Bibo[/re]: Best counter ever.

    [re=84412]4tehlulz[/re]: And we from the south know what other word goes w/uppity. Yup, cretins still get elected here.

  • S.Luggo

    So, Alaska has a least two types of snow: coke AND meth.

    BTW: The converted bus qualified for an SBA loan, a USTA mileage waiver, HUD earmarked repair funds, and federal landmark status under Mayoress Palin. (It’s also where Bristol got knocked up.] That’s executive experience we can count on.

  • tunamelt

    [re=84416]Cogito Ergo Bibo[/re]: I’m emailing that to my dad. He can’t vote, but still, I just want him to shut up.

  • villageatrois

    Wasilla has 9,700 primate residents, with 42 meth labs, that are known by State Police. The Dreadful Maths have some horrible tales to tell: There is a meth lab for each 230 people. When Alaska sends out the $1200 “energy rebate”, $11.6 mm will go to Wasilla, including $8,400 to the Palin family. Walmart will have Sudafed on back-order. Dentists will go out of business, reducing healthcare costs. State Troopers will impregnate children under threat of tasering. What master-strokes of economic development!

  • accidental_tourist

    I don’t know where else to put this comment, so will tack it on here.

    Doesn’t Obama go on Bill O’Reilly tonight after McCain’s speech? Last night O’Reilly and Dennis Miller were laughing about it and LITERALLY salivating (I have Hi-Def TV) over all the questions they could trip him up with to make him look like a stuttering fool. Then O’Reilly admonished Miller to be quiet, they didn’t want the Obama camp to know what kind of questions lay in store for them.

    I don’t know what else to say except just *sigh*

    Wasilla Crystal Meth is sought after by the Crank connoisseur because it is made with pure ephedrine found in Chinese medicine so it gives a potent, longer lasting and yet delicate high.

    “Just from what little I’ve seen of her and Mr. Obama, Sen. Obama, they’re a member of an elitist-class individual that thinks that they’re uppity,” Westmoreland said.

    Can a congressman be impeached for raping the english language? Jesus Rock ‘n’ Roll Christ.

    So… the Obamas are “a member of an… individual that thinks they’re uppity”?? What the fuck?? I want to see the legislation this fuckboot came up with. It’s probably written feces on construction paper. When will the grammatically charged divide between our plurals and our singulars be healed?

    And while we’re on the subject of law & order the Anchorage Daily News has a daily bear sighting section! Yes, bears are all over Alaska’s largest city, going through garbage cans, standing on the street corners panhandling for spare change, etc. How can Miss ‘Commander-in-Chief’ stand up to the mighty Russian ‘bear’ when she can’t take care of the bears in her own backyard?

Sorry to disappoint you all, but McCain and Palin are going to win. Try not to cry yourselves to sleep.
