Liberal Alaskan Laws Smear Sarah Palin

  troopergate

So what’s the deal, is this gal a rotten crook? Will the Obama wolves throw her in the slammer with her corrupt robber friends? Lil’ impeachment action? We don’t know, you’ll have to ask Jeffrey Toobin or his rich lawyer commentator friends. The point: in 25 days, she’ll return to governing a state where everyone hates her slimy guts.

    There is nothing anyone can say that would change my mind about Sarah.
    She is beautiful, intelligent,and moral all the things that I am not.
    If I had her as my VP I could rule the World.
    Dam she is AWESOME!

  2. rocktonsammy

    I was expecting it to be written in crayon or whale blubber, First Dud, fire up the hellocopter, we’re a goin huntin.

  3. grendel

    Schadenfreude needs an official dance. Srsly… best day ever… McCain has to defend Obama from nutjobs and Palin is declared a crook. I’m giddy…

  4. President Beeblebrox

    Well, we *hope* she’ll be returning to Alaska, anyway. Diebold may see it differently.

  5. Rush

    Editors, please remimd us each year of who she was and what fun we had with her. Her 15 minutes is nearing a close.

  6. Beans

    OMG!!!! I am so shocked. Sarah Palin misused her power? And First Dude–You misused power that wasn’t even yours!

    I am stunned that the snowbillies acted like a pair of bullies.

    But then–She didn’t abort her retard baby, did she? What more do you people want?

  7. astroprofeddie

    Alaska is in the tank for Obama…wait no it isn’t…. so much for the talking points memo
    blank is in the tank…..

  8. SayItWithWookies

    Well, a maverick wouldn’t violate ethics rules. So any silly government report saying she did is obviously biased.

  9. BobLoblawLawBlog

    No, really, what does this mean? I saw that there will be no criminal investigation. So then, what? Do they lash her a few times with a wet noodle? Cause if they sell that video, this economic crisis might be ovah.

  10. chascates

    10 Republicans & 4 Democrats on the committee unanimously voted to release the report. Hard to spin it a witch hunt. Especially since Wasilla Barbie has been ‘protected’ against witchcraft!

  11. Beans

    WTF–Everyone is in the tank everywhere. Is the tank full of anything narcotic? alcoholic? hallucinogenic? Should I be in the tank with everyone else? Is everyone high but me? What do the in-the-tankers know that I don’t, except the fact that Republicans have made it the most overused cliche of the WTF campaign year.

    I think the Alaskan punishment for this violation is either a public Booting from Trooper Wooten or Sarah has to sit on top a flag pole for the entire month of February. I just cant remember.

  14. Terry

    Wow, so pretty much everything about Sarah’s initial image was wrong, except that we believe her to still be genetically female.

    Right away, its not difficult to imagine this is the stuff of a Jerry Springer episode.

  20. TeddyS

    The Republicans on the committee did their job by delaying the report past the evening news deadlines on Friday. Hard to hide this one though. Tomorrow wil be the spin cycle, followed by the Sunday talkies. Monday morning, the game goes back to the economy, which is in the tank for the Dems. Three days off message at this point of the campaign is a big deal. But Obama is still a terrorist freakzoid Arab Muslin.

  21. sailingthestyx

    [re=130417]Terry[/re]: but that may be up for review…hate to have her pissed at me; kind of the like the gal/alien from Species…

  23. President Beeblebrox

    [re=130435]TeddyS[/re]: Right! And not only is Obama a half-breed Muslin, but it’s also *his* half-breed Muslin fault that the Palin rallies are starting to sound like they’re in Nuremburg:

    http://firstread.msnbc.msn.com/archive/2008/10/10/1529529.aspx

    “Barack Obama’s assault on our supporters is insulting and unsurprising. These are the same people obama called ‘bitter’ and attacked for ‘clinging to guns’ and faith. He fails to understand that people are angry at corrupt practices in Washington and Wall Street and he fails to understand that America’s working families are not ‘clinging’ to anything other than the sincere hope that Washington will be reformed from top to bottom.”

  24. SayItWithWookies

    What’s really disappointing is how small time this is. I mean, after reading that her top priority as governor was getting her ex brother-in-law fired, I can’t imagine Sarah Palin torturing people and goading pathological liars into providing a pretext for invading another country. As VP, she’d probably have the FBI investigating the Wasilla dry cleaner that lost a button on her favorite suit.

  25. ghardcastle

    God, way to be in the tank Alaska! Haven’t you heard? The McCane camp released their own report YESTERDAY okay? and it cleared her of everything. Isn’t that enough?

    And why has no one come up with a suitable acronym for her name?

  31. j6n

    She only violated an ethics law. Everyone knows ethics laws aren’t real laws. Moose poaching – now that’s a crime.

  32. larz

    How long will it take her to blame Obama, Biden, Bill Ayers, Rev Wright and “those guys in Washington”?

    I think Obama’s new slogan should be “McCain – Palin – Thanks, but No Thanks”

  33. gliberal

    Her biggest crime IMHO are the new dimensions of her ass. Too much room service, Trixie. Her butt is roughly the size of Denali National Park. In fact four race-baiters hiking across her ass disappeared on a little used logging trail earlier this week.

    If everything goes our way on Nov. 4th, will Palin be remembered as the most bizarre/failtastic VP choice in history, hands down? Will she live on in the American political lexicon, her very name becoming shorthand for “a fuckup of epic proportions”?

    August, 2040: “Well, Li’l Tim, Chelsea is clearly the front runner going into the fall, but will her decision to choose her mother as her running mate become her Palin moment?”

    Will Palin and McCain be inextricably linked forever, branded into the memories of political pundits and campaign managers as the ultimate object lesson?

    Somewhere on the SAT they have this idea of time running in one direction. Why the fuck would the Obama campaign give a ptarmigan’s ass about this little civil service investigation when it was started before John Herbert McHoover tapped her to be snowbilly in waiting? And then the Legislative Council, dominated by Rs, sez it’s ok to release this…how is this part of a sweeping conspiracy?

    Her press flacks are even dumber than Palin–and we now know how dumb that is.

  49. ThePuckStopsHere

    “…Sen. Gene Therriault, R-North Pole, said the report is flawed because…”

    Whenever Santa™ needs the skids of government greased, this is who he bleeping calls. How cool is that?

  50. obfuscator

    Fox pundit Michael Barone sez that McCain still has a chance* because Barry’s GOTV operation is maybe not as strong as it’s supposed to be. He actually compares the Obama ground game to Dean’s 2004 Iowa volunteer network. I guess the 2008 Iowa caucuses never happened Barone’s universe.

    [re=130403]Beans[/re]: She didn’t abort a retard baby because she would have done it by proxy, since it was not hers to abort. When it dawned on her in the seventh month of her imaginary pregnancy that she really didn’t show like most pregnant women – or like she used to show when she was actually carrying the next generation of wolf-hating Palins – she started stuffing memory foam inserts in her flannel shirts so people would think she was toting another one of Super Todd’s spawn.

    [re=130461]Blue Line[/re]:

    The GOP has nearly completed its wholesale transformation into a cult. This is especially true this year, when the number of GOP supporters has dwindled. Now, the natural reaction for cult members is to interpret every setback for their leader as part of some grand conspiracy by “the enemy” and circle the wagons in defense (consider, for instance, Ted Stevens, who’s running ahead of his Senatorial rival, even though he’s a corrupt and sleazy criminal). That’s why this news will only make Palin more popular with the GOP base.

  61. obfuscator

    [re=130512]President Beeblebrox[/re]: That’s actually where I read the Barone story. Does anyone, even the most devoted conservative, read Barone’s ball of desperation and actually buy it? Does Barone even buy it? I guess it goes with the official McCain campaign narrative of the last two months, though. McCain’s gone without one single positive news cycle for about a month now. He got a bounce from the Palin selection, but everything since then has been a moose carcass full of sad for them.

    Wonder if that lady who said that Barry was an Arab has ever owned a designer anything? She had some serious bed head goin’ on, and I imagined she looked just like Phyllis Diller. Also, don’tcha know that she backed down quickly when John said Obama wasn’t an Arab. She just paused, and asked, “No?” I think she was a plant.

    [re=130601]Worlds End[/re]: Looks like they got a quick quote on Troopergate from her as she left her hotel this morning. From http://www.cnn.com/2008/POLITICS/10/11/palin.investigation/index.html

    “If you read the report, you will see that there was nothing unlawful,” Palin said as she emerged from her hotel in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

    The very next line is priceless:

    Palin violated state ethics law by trying to get her former brother-in-law fired from the state police, a state investigator’s report for the bipartisan Legislative Council concluded Friday.

    Hee, hee. Just because the firing was legal doesn’t mean you didn’t violate laws.

    [re=130601]Worlds End[/re]: She couldn’t comprehend something as sophisticated as how the surge ACTUALLY worked (i.e. paying off local heavies and targeting the sources of the bombs themselves; nothing to do with extra troops).

  106. iolanthe

    [re=130403]Beans[/re]: In some kind of fairness, I’d have trouble aborting a baby just because of Downs, too. My Downs cousin Simon is a joy, even in adulthood. Of course, he’s fortunate in his situation. He lives on the family farm. He’s better at handling the cows than his Dad and brothers, and is a whiz with the milking. He can even read some.

    But he’s going to have to live his life always in the bosom of family. If the family ever quits the dairy business, I’m not sure he could acquire another skill set. The outside world would eat him alive, and he’s smart enough to really suffer from that. He doesn’t understand unfriendly or mean or sneaky people at all.

    So I really can’t fault someone for making the hard decision to abort someone who will always need that level of special protection.

    Just saying it’s not the only right or decent decision. Downs folks can surprise you.

    Besides — there are so many other better reasons to hate Sarah Palin! I’ll start with her “word salad”.

  107. Cogito Ergo Bibo

    Ooo. This is really good. From Time Magazine article entitled “What the Troopergate Report Really Says”: http://www.time.com/time/politics/article/0,8599,1849399,00.html?xid=site-cnn-partner

    The result is not a mortal wound to Palin, nor does it put her at much risk of being forced to leave the ticket her presence succeeded in energizing.

    But the Branchflower report still makes for good reading, if only because it convincingly answers a question nobody had even thought to ask: Is the Palin administration shockingly amateurish? Yes, it is. Disturbingly so.

    The 263 pages of the report show a co-ordinated application of pressure on Monegan so transparent and ham-handed that it was almost certain to end in public embarrassment for the governor.

    Harsh! But soooo karmalicious.

  108. smellyal8r

    So this is John “some of my best friends are black” McCain? Crazy. I still think yesterday was a total legacy maneuver so he can get back on Daily Show and Letterman (well, maybe not Letterman) when he loses. Then, he’ll be all Mavericky and everyone will say, “Where was this guy?” Well, doing anything to win, that’s where. Inciting riots in Minnesota (quick, get Garrison Kellior on the phone), attaching himself to some crazy redneck momma from Alaska for crissakes and trying to keep Cindy on/off the Vicodin. What a country.

  109. Gopherit v2.0

    “No, and if you read the report you’ll see that there was nothing unlawful or unethical about replacing a cabinet member. You gotta read the report”

  112. Texas2Step

    [re=130403]Beans[/re]: I hate to say this, but I think she was hoping the cross-country plane trip while in labor would do it for her.

    Too harsh….?

  113. Texas2Step

    [re=130468]gliberal[/re]: Two words: Stress Eating. If she felt confident, her behind her wouldn’t be so far out behind her.

  116. tednugentslover

    Teams of Mavericks “The McCain/Palin ticket is the first in American history in which both candidates were found to have violated ethics standards before a national election.”

    Nice.

  117. Hooray For Anything

    Let’s admit it…. we’re all going to miss Sarah Palin when this election is over….

    [re=130609]Worlds End[/re]: I saw that Daily Show segment too. It’s like Fox is off their meds these days.

  118. DoctorCulturae

    [re=130640]obfuscator[/re]: Thanks for posting this. Melber rocks. The point here is that Freire fumbled his appearance because Melber was solid as a rock to any inanity, comparable to Gibbs vs Hannity. They need to keep putting him up against Repubmuts.

    [re=130628]Gopherit v2.0[/re]: In Arizona, we get rid of our crooked governors: Ev Mecham and Fife Symington

    And the ethics violations committed by Palin are worse than those Mecham committed. But, since this sort behavior is standard in Alaska, nothing will happen to her beyond a slap on the wrist.

  121. 2druk2phluq

    [re=130660]Bob Hopeless[/re]: I would have been just fine without seeing that. Have you seen the a href=”http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=itEucdhf4Us”>sidewalk to nowhere? “ACORN and Barama ruined these economy.” “Barama is an AyRab.”

    [re=130664]azw88[/re]: Oh, I’m sure Fox News is already dangling a contract for her as we speak. Between her fake populism, perky personality, hazy relationship with the truth, meanspiritidness, and illegal activities, she’d be perfect on Fox. Well, except for the fact she’s not a blonde but she could always change that.

  134. PentagonBookkeeper

    [re=130545]CooterMarie[/re]: I love that gurney-head image, and you’re probably right! Poor ole lady, those Republicans have certainly opened up the qualifications for their Manchurian Candidate Dept. The more I think about it, I think all of these people who take the mic now at these rallies to say scary things about Obama, are all covert, opposition players. Cain is obviously filled with hatred toward that one who must be defeated at any cost. From the beginning, Barry has always referred to the old man with honor, and praised him for his sacrifice to this country. Conversely, since the old guy can’t sincerely just weave some calming words into his opening speachifying at his beloved town halls, he has to take the low road – get these hypnotized racists to say this crap, keep the camera in tight on McCain to see his righteous reaction, and to hear his bogus rehearsed lines. It makes me sick!

  135. Wagamuffin

    [re=130544]gurukalehuru[/re]: Yes, cream puff of a question is the exact phrase. Explaining your economic platform at this point should be a rote exercise. Which is why,
    [re=130565]Dreamer[/re]: your bluster about Dion’s performance rings hollow. Any question about economic performance for any candidate at this point should be a slam dunk—in both official languages. As for CTV airing the bung-ups, well, I consider it fair game. He was telling the journalist “Hey, I don’t understand the question!” then seguing off into this ridiculous rant about “are you talking about 2 years ago, now, tomorrow?”. And then losing his shit with the reporter?? Especially since he wasn’t even challenged and such a question certainly couldn’ be considered provacative. Any Grade 10 debater could have fielded a more palatable answer.

    Sorry Dreamer, I have been a lifelong Liberal supporter, but I know bullshit and a piss poor performance when I see it, whomever the candidate…

    New favorite quote. From the Princeton Election Consortium:

    Whatever your personal preference may be, a Democratic sweep is coming. The storm is about to make landfall, and we know where.

    Also, Sarah dropped the puck, brought her kids, thinking that would cause the Flyer fans to be polite. They were not. Booed like crazy, then they turned the music up so loud it drowned out 18,500 people.

    [re=130694]irisheyes[/re]: I thought the low-brow hockey fans would love Bible Spice. It warms the cockles of my heart that she got booed … by white people because I don’t know any AAs who would go to a hockey game.

    [re=130696]Texan Bulldoggette[/re]: Oh- there are no AA’s at a Flyers game; but the crowd is not low- brow; those tix are crazy expensive. Mostly whiteys from the suburbs.

    On a lower note- the Palin curse has now allowed the rangers to take the lead 4-0. Failin is watching in the crowd holding the baby. Gonna be interviewed in between periods- I’ll be watching ANYTHING else.

    Dear Friend:

    Are you ready yet for the November 4th Elections? How about your friends, family, and neighbors?
    More Americans are expected to vote this year than ever before in history, so don’t be left out! Be sure to ask everyone you know the following questions:
    • Are you registered to vote? If you moved recently, have you updated your voter registration?
    • Did you apply for an Absentee Ballot? Do you know your state may not require any reason?
    • Can you find your local Polling Place? Do you know it may have changed from last time?
    The answers to these questions — and all your voting needs — can be found at http://www.StateDemocracy.org
