Hillary Lets Down Supporters, Country

Thanks to the tens of thousands of people who visited this site. Managing this blog has been a fascinating experience. In the end, Hillary Clinton let down her Supporters -- and her Nation. She valued her career and her party over her nation. Bummer!

Apparently, in the election, as many as four million Hillary Supprters cast their ballots for McCain-Palin. That's a great start.

I hope you'll visit my ongoing sites, such as: http://draftpalin2012.blogspot.com and http://stevemaloneygop.blogspot.com.

My main effort over the next four years will be to ensure the election as POTUS of Gov. Sarah Heath Palin of Alaska. I hope you'll join me in that effort.

Sarah Palin and Hillary Clinton

Barack H. Obama will be our 44th President. Let's make sure our 45th is the woman below.




This particular blog will come to its "natural death" at the end of this week. Before that, however, I will write some more about a six-month-long experiment I had working with Hillary Supporters for McCain. Obviously, not enough of them voted for John McCain and Sarah Palin. However, at least 20% of the famous "18 million" DID in fact vote for McCain-Palin. That's a hefty number. Apparently, most of the Hillary Supporters for McCain recognize that "reform" of the Democratic Party is a fantasy. Millions of them now think of themselves as Independents, or even -- horror of horrors -- as Republicans. Good for them.

I'll write more on this subject later, but for now, I invite Hillary Supporters -- and everyone else -- to come to my new site: http://draftpalin2012.blogspot.com/. If you want to support Sarah in a 2012 race against Obama, please send me an e-mail with your first name, last name (or initial), state, and location. Send it to: TalkTop65@aol.com.

What do I think of Hillary Rodham Clinton? I believe she put career and Party ahead of Country. Her behavior since June 3 has been disgraceful. As Shakespeare's Falstaff put it, "Nothing lost save honor." She's a woman who lacks character and courage. Aside from that . . .

Sarah is Strong, Hillary Weak

"America, your deepest identity and truest character as a nation is revealed in the position you take towards the human person. The ultimate test of your greatness in the way you treat every human being, but especially the weakest and most defenseless ones." (Pope John Paul II)

This woman below, Gov. Sarah Palin, is strong in critical areas where Hillary Rodham Clinton is weak -- particularly ones related to character, integrity, and respect for human life. Thanks to Penny of Cincinnati for the superb photograph. See more of Penny's fine work at: http://draftpalin2012.blogspot.com.

Is Palin the Next V-P?

Sarah Palin: Is this the face of America's next Vice President? (Note: Please visit -- and bookmark -- my new site by clicking on the following: http://draftpalin2012.blogspot.com/.)

I expect Barack Obama to win the popular vote by perhaps three million ballots. However, that doesn't mean John McCain has no chance to win the presidency. How could that happen? (Obama apparently will win California by two million votes; he will win NY by almost one million. That will make the rest of the country roughly even. McCain is not competing in CA or NY.)

To emerge with a victory on Nov. 4, McCain needs to win Ohio, FL, PA, MN, NC, and VA. Other than that, we're in great shape. :-)

However, we have a chance of winning those five states. If we lose one, I prefer it to be VA. McCain has a narrow window, but narrow is better than a brick wall. If McCain pulls off a big upset in a state, please God, let it be CO!

Critical point: If you hear a lot Tuesday night about the "Wilder Effect," you are allowed to cheer and have a couple of drinks. That refers to the time when Doug Wilder, of marginal African-American descent, was ahead in the polls by 9 points for Gov. of VA. In fact, he ended up winning by just under ONE percent. People fib to pollsters for much the same reason they hang up on telemarketers.

I have a hunch Obama will get about 3-4% fewer votes (and McCain about 2-3% more) in battleground states than the polls suggest. If that doesn't happen, the Obaminable One probably wins. :-

When I need sources of optimism, I look back to the Dem. Primaries, where Obama was supposed to win NH big (and he lost rather badly) and come close in PA (where he lost b y almost 10 points). Must have been "the Wilder Effect," right?

Elect Sarah Palin President 2012

The Palin Family aims high, as Piper demonstrates in this photo.

In about a week, this election-specific blog basically will cease to exist . . . in that there will be no more posts. John McCain will either have won Pennsylvania (and the presidency), or he won't. Starting today. I will be blogging basically at two sites: http://stevemaloneygop.blogspot.com/ and http://draftpalin2012.blogspot.com/. I urge you to visit both sites and bookmark them.

I also ask you, if you're a blogger, to join the ReadMyLipstickNetwork, which I've already done. The purpose of that network -- and the purpose of my blogs -- will be to ensure that Gov. Palin occupies the White House as soon as 2012. For that to happen, we're going to need a million-plus activists and organizers, and I certainly hope you're one of them. I'll have some other activities, which you'll hear about soon.

I very much appreciate the tens of thousands of people who've visited this blog. I especially appreciate the tens of millions of Americans who are going to cast their ballots for John McCain and Sarah Palin.

In the meantime, please contact friends, neighbors, and family members to ask them to vote for John and Sarah, two outstanding Americans.

Volunteers Urgently Needed for Philadelphia!

Elizabeth Hasselbeck of "The View" and Gov. Sarah Palin make a dynamic duo on the campaign trail!

Andrea Snell sent me the following; it's is a great opportunity for NYC and northeastern volunteers...

----
** Anyone who is interested in this please email snellthewise@yahoo.com, tell her Jean referred you. Trip is THIS Saturday; it's now or never!! **

Hey Jean, We have a bus ready to go to NE Philly on Saturday and need people to fill it! PA is the make or break it state & the Philadelphia office has been needing more people for awhile. There are a large number of McCain supporters and we need to make sure to maximize turnout. (I went out & phonebanked yesterday and had an all Democrat call sheet- 3/4 of the people I spoke to are voting McCain)We have had a lot of volunteers going out but they have tended to go to other areas.


The campaign will be sending us to targeted voters (Soft Republican or Moderate Dem) that are likely to vote McCain but may need a little push- so we will not be wasting time going to hard core liberals.Will you post to your boards and contact your Princeton connections please?? (I know you must be swamped)We will be leaving at 8:30am from 34th St & 10th Ave, NYC (though an earlier NJ pick up could probably be arranged) and getting back at 8p. Have people contact me to confirm.EVERYone is saying PA is much closer than public polls suggest.

Important Study Needs Your Participation

I received the following request from Benjamin Cross, a psychology professor at NYU. I believe this is an important undertaking, and I'm going to participate. I hope you will also.

"I am writing you on behalf of a research team from the Psychology Department at New York University, in the hopes that you might be able to help us with our timely and important research about the cognitive bases of electoral decision-making. We would be very grateful to you if you could possibly help us recruit politically inclined respondents to our survey by posting to your blog the link to the online survey we are conducting as part of this research. We began data collection in September, after the Vice-Presidential candidates were announced, but we are particularly interested in how people respond to the candidates when Election Day is around the corner."

Sarah Palin: First Woman President

"Will Sarah Palin's time come next week? I don't know. But her time will come." (Elaine Lafferty, feminist and campaign adviser to Gov. Palin)

http://www.thedailybeast.com/blogs-and-stories/2008-10-27/sarah-palins-a-brainiac/1/


Sarah Palin's a Brainiac, By Elaine Lafferty

Elaine Lafferty is a former staff correspondent at Time magazine and the Irish Times of Dublin, features editor at MORE magazine, editor in chief of Ms magazine. She has covered everything from the OJ Simpson trial to the Unabomber case, natural disasters in Central America, and conflicts in Kosovo, the Middle East, Pakistan and Afghanistan. The recipient of numerous journalism awards, she co-authored My Turn At the Bully Pulpit with Greta Van Susteren.X Close The former editor in chief of Ms. magazine (and a Democrat) on what she learned on a campaign plane with the would-be VP.


It's difficult not to froth when one reads, as I did again and again this week, doubts about Sarah Palin's “intelligence,” coming especially from women such as PBS's Bonnie Erbe, who, as near as I recall, has not herself heretofore been burdened with the Susan Sontag of Journalism moniker. As Fred Barnes—God help me, I'm agreeing with Fred Barnes—suggests in the Weekly Standard, these high toned and authoritative dismissals come from people who have never met or spoken with Sarah Palin. Those who know her, love her or hate her, offer no such criticism. They know what I know, and I learned it from spending just a little time traveling on the cramped campaign plane this week: Sarah Palin is very smart.

I'm a Democrat, but I've worked as a consultant with the McCain campaign since shortly after Palin's nomination. Last week, there was the thought that as a former editor-in-chief of Ms. magazine as well as a feminist activist in my pre-journalism days, I might be helpful in contributing to a speech that Palin had long wanted to give on women's rights.What is often called her “confidence” is actually a rarity in national politics: I saw a woman who knows exactly who she is.

Now by “smart,” I don't refer to a person who is wily or calculating or nimble in the way of certain talented athletes who we admire but suspect don't really have serious brains in their skulls. I mean, instead, a mind that is thoughtful, curious, with a discernable pattern of associative thinking and insight. Palin asks questions, and probes linkages and logic that bring to mind a quirky law professor I once had. Palin is more than a “quick study”; I'd heard rumors around the campaign of her photographic memory and, frankly, I watched it in action. She sees. She processes. She questions, and only then, she acts. What is often called her “confidence” is actually a rarity in national politics: I saw a woman who knows exactly who she is.

For all those old enough to remember Senator Sam Ervin, the brilliant strict constitutional constructionist and chairman of the Senate Watergate Committee whose patois included “I'm just a country lawyer"...Yup, Palin is that smart.

So no simple task then, this speech on women's rights. For the sin of being a Christian personally opposed to abortion, Palin is being pilloried by the inside-the-Beltway Democrat feminist establishment. (Yes, she is anti-abortion. And yes, instead of buying organic New Zealand lamb at Whole Foods, she joins other Alaskans in hunting for food. That's it. She is not a right-wing nut, and all the rest of the Internet drivel—the book banning at the Library, the rape kits decision—is nonsense. I digress.) Palin's role in this campaign was to energize “the Republican base,” which she has inarguably done. She also was expected to reach out to Hillary Clinton “moderates.” (Right. Only a woman would get both those jobs in either party.)

Look, I am obviously personally pro-choice, and I disagree with McCain and Palin on that and a few other issues. But like many other Democrats, including Lynn Rothschild, I'm tired of the Democratic Party taking women for granted. I also happen to believe Sarah Palin supports women's rights, deeply and passionately.

Many of those—not all—who decried the sexist media treatment of Hillary Clinton have been silent as Palin has been skewered in the old ways that female public figures are skewered, as well as a host of sexualized new ways as well. Some feminists have weighed in; “Even the reportedly clear glasses she wears to play down her beauty queen credential and enhance her gravitas can't make up for experience,” writes my heroine Suzanne Braun Levine, former editor of Ms. Oppose her on policy? Fine. But how sad for feminist leaders to sink this low, especially when Palin has worn glasses since she was 10 years old.

Last month a prominent feminist blogger, echoing that sensibility, declared that the media was wrongly buying into the false idea that Palin was a feminist. Why? Well, just because she said she was a feminist, because she supported women's rights and opportunities, equal pay, Title IV—that was just “empty rhetoric,” they said. At least the blogger didn't go as far as NOW's Kim Gandy and declare that Palin was not a woman. Bottom line: you are not a feminist until we say you are. And there you have the formula for diminishing what was once a great and important mass social change movement to an exclusionary club that rejects women who sincerely want to join and, God forbid, grow to lead.

But here is the good news: women, citizens of America's high and low culture, the Economist and People magazine readers, will get it. They got it with Hillary even when feminist leaders were not supporting her or doing so half-heartedly. Yes, Palin is a harder sell, she looks and sounds different, and one can rightfully oppose her based on abortion policies. If you only vote on how a person personally feels about abortion, you will never want her to darken your door. If you care about anything else, she will continue to intrigue you. As Time's Nancy Gibbs noted a few weeks ago, quoting bioethicist Tom Murray, “Sympathy and subtlety are seasonings rarely applied to political red meat.”

Will Palin's time come next week? I don't know. But her time will come.

Hillary Clinton: No Sarah Palin

I was honored to be at Sarah Palin's Rally, which drew a huge crowd, in Beaver County, PA. She was splendid. She compared "Joe the Plumber" with "Barack, the Wealth Distributor."





The following is an e-mail to many hundreds of my political allies -- some of them closer allies than others.


Right now, the election boils down to this: If John McCain prevails in Florida, Ohio, AND Pennsylvania, he has a fighting chance to win the election. If he doesn't, he won't. That means we need tens of thousands of people to go to JohnMcCain.com, use the Online Phone Bank, and call into those three states.


After Nov. 5, no matter what happens the day before, I intend to work with kindred spirits, particulary the people at http://moderconservative.com/ to build a huge organization of activists who will win federal elections in 2010, 2012, and beyond.


After Nov. 4, "NoBama Mission Bloggers" will cease to exist. There will be another organization with a new name, but (I hope) with a lot of the same players.


In this election year, I focused on Hillary Supporters who would consider voting for John McCain, and later for McCain-Palin. Frankly, I thought there would be more of them than turned out to be the case. I believed -- and was partially correct -- that John McCain's status as a military hero, a reformer, and independent spirit would have great appeal.


Some people receiving this note believed that it would be possible to "reform" the DNC and the Democratic Party. Honestly, I thought (and now I know) they were engaged in a fantasy. Who exactly was going to reform the Party? Barack Obama? Howard Dean? Jay Rockefeller? Bob Casey? John Kerry? John Edwards? Ted Kennedy? Hillary Clinton?


Those people apparently are quite happy with the Party as it is. They have all enthusiastically endorsed Barack Obama, a man having no accomplishments in the past and showing little promise of any in the future.


My low point in dealing with Hillaryites came when I highly praised John McCain's naming of a strong woman as his vice presidential choice. One woman told me that by saluting Gov. Palin so highly I had made Hillary Clinton look bad by comparison.


Actually, I made no comparison, but if I had, my critic would have been right: HRC is NO Sarah Palin, not even close. Unlike Hillary, Sarah cannot be intimidated, cannot be made to toe the Party line, cannot be dismissed as someone who ever rode her spouse's coattails. She has the courage, compassion, and candor we should require in political candidates. "Country first" is the right motto for such an admirable woman and her remarkable family.


Gov. Palin has said that her goals for America are a society that promotes "freedom, tolerance/fairness, and opportunity." I don't know of any Democratic elected officials who share those goals. I know some individual Democrats do -- generally people in transition toward becoming either Independents or Republicans.


I believe Barack Obama (and Joe Biden) are the fulfillment of what Lyndon Johnson called "The Great Society." What that "Great" aim led to was a society in moral and cultural disarray, one where half the people are dependent on the other half. In that kind of society, concepts like freedom, tolerance/fairness, and opportunity become mere words.


In the future, I'll be dealing mainly with moderates and conservatives, almost all of whom will be either Republicans or Independents. In terms of candidates, I'll be looking for people of uncommon honesty and courage. Candidates who are poll-driven cynics and careerists will be the enemy, because they are so destructive of our country.


I wish John McCain and Sarah Palin all the best on election day. I will continue to work hard for them, and I hope all of you will do so also.


For some of you, this is a good-bye message. For others, it is a pledge to work with you to build a stronger America. But God bless to all.

Hillary Clinton: No Sarah Palin

Mistakes made, lessons learned in the 2008 Campaign . . .

Karen [a friend]: At one point in the JustSayNoDeal atmosphere I gave a ringing endorsement to Sarah Palin. I was told by a Hillaryite that by praising Sarah Palin so highly I had upset her because, by comparison, I'd made HRC look bad. Actually, I said nothing about Hillary Clinton, whom I admit I don't believe is in the same league as Sarah Palin.

Let me be frank: HRC is obviously a Party first person. Sarah Palin is country first.

Your comment about the "maverick" (i.e., naive) political participants is accurate. Frankly, the hundreds of thousands of hours spent on "Denver" and on wild flailing at Obama were a gigantic waste of time and money. The time expended on Denver should have been spent organizing -- and raising money -- to defeat Obama.

Sen. Clinton and her husband, both labelled racists (and worse) by Obama, have been out campaigning for their tormentor. The excuse given is that Sen. Clinton "has to do what she has to do." I compare that to Dosteoevsky's comment that, "If God is dead, everything is permitted." As long as someone like HRC is held to no standards, she "lives up" to that just fine.

One reason I like Sarah Palin so much is that she is not -- and will never become -- a Washington insider. She is incorruptible and totally fearless. The Hillary Supporters who have faced up to reality (and it is horrifying to say the least) will be great allies. The ones who remain in fantasy land would be no help to us.

You raise a point that Chris, Katie, and I have not discussed; the crying need for political training -- basically, to acquaint people with what works and what doesn't. Also, we need to inform people about how to build small organizations into large ones.

As for bloggers, they can be great assets. At times, however, we sounded like the second coming of the Tower of Babel. At our worst, we were all trying to produce a "knockout" (one more juicy expose) but generally didn't lay a glove on BHO. The birth-certificate non-issue was a classic case. I doubt 1% of the voters can identify the name "Raila Odinga." Michelle Obama's Princeton thesis is of interest to almost no one.

What are Americans interested in? And of even more importance, what are they NOT interested in? I asked people many time to be brutally realistic with themselves, but that message didn't get across to many.

We also need to coalesce around a specific candidate. I've said I hope that will be Sarah Palin, but I'm open to other names (if there are some).

McCain-Palin Can Still Win

A Hillary Supporter wrote asking if I had "given up" on winning this year's election; the following is my response.

I have NOT given up on the election at all. I've worked so hard for so many months that I have something approaching Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Hell, I'm still trying to win Pennsylvania, which I believe we just might do. I've predicted (guessed?) that McCain may take the national lead by the end of October. We shall see.

However, I realize that after an election -- win or lose -- a whole lot of people tend to disappear. Then, two years or four years later, everybody starts re-inventing the same wheel that they already "invented" previously. It's impossible to win modern elections that way.

Thanks for your continuing support of McCain-Palin, a ticket of two honorable people.

As you already know, I do not believe the Democratic Party is going to "reformed." Who on earth would reform it? I have scrupulously supported such "reform" efforts for many months now, but at this point I regard them as folly and fantasy.

Democrats -- like the Clintons -- who should be leading the reform movement are running around drooling over Obama. His despicable campaign will be the "model" for all future Democratic Party efforts.

Crunch Time for McCain-Palin

I hope everyone will tune in to our Clintons4McCain Blog Talk Radio show on Saturday. We'll have to outstanding African-American guests, who will explain why they're opposing Barack H. Obama.

If you're not already making calls in support of John and Sarah, well, what are you waiting for? I received the following today from the McCain Campaign, and I can't say it any better than they did:

Team -

John McCain and Sarah Palin were hard at work on the campaign trail this week, visiting with voters in battleground states and working day and night to reach out to undecided voters and energize supporters in the remaining days of the campaign. John McCain came off a great win in his final debate with Senator Obama and the polls are beginning to tighten as we head into the final stretch.

Yesterday, our campaign released a new TV ad highlighting this called, "Fight." John McCain and Sarah Palin are a team of reformers and fighters with a bold plan to make the next four years better for all Americans. Take a minute today to watch our latest ad by following this link.

Our country's economic troubles won't be solved by higher taxes and Senators Obama and Biden have laid out plans they say will "spread the wealth" around - taking more money from hard working Americans in the form of "patriotic" tax hikes.

If we're going to elect John McCain and Sarah Palin, we need your help. In the final days of the race, we need you to to pitch in and sign up to volunteer through our online phone bank. It's easy to use; you choose the state where you'd like to make calls and we provide the names, numbers and phone scripts. Please take a few minutes this evening or tomorrow to follow this link and make 20 calls for our campaign.

Our entire team, from our candidates to staff and volunteers, appreciates your support and dedication. Please get involved in the final days of the campaign. Your help can put us over the top on Election Day.

African-Americans Against Barack Obama

This morning (Thursday), I had my first confrontation with an (African-American) Obama Supporter. It was a confrontation that I won, and I'll write about it this weekend.

On this Saturday's Clintons4McCain program on Blog Talk Radio, there will be two African-Americans now campaigning ferociously against Obama. They will be Lloyd Marcus, a songwriter from Illinois, and Tanya Crews, a political activist and businesswoman from the Scranton, PA area.

I urge you to tune in to listen to Lloyd and Tanya, two courageous young people. Tanya,
We are looking forward to having you on the Clintons4McCain BlogTalkRadio, which you can link to here: http://blogtalkradio/clintons4mccain.

The show will be from 5-6 p.m. Eastern Time. I'll be one of the hosts, and the other will be Anne Franklin from Texas. Our lines will be open for live callers. The number will be: (347) 633-9273.

Last week's guest was "Moms4McCain" activist Jean Avery from Seattle, Washington. The progrma was excellent, and you can listen to it on the Clintons4McCain archive.

New Yorker? Come to Scranton!

Rosa in New York (RSVP152@aol.com) sent the following urgent message about New Yorkers -- many of them Demoocrats -- coming to Scranton and other places to canvass neighbors for John McCain and Sarah Palin. The people are angry at the thoroughly corrupt process Obama/Axelrod used to steal the Primary Election Process from Sen. Clinton.

The NYC Area Democrats For McCain had a very successful canvassing effort in Scranton, Pennsylvania over this past weekend. And people of color were well-represented in the crew.

Our conclusion is that there are many Democrats in Scranton who could be persuaded to vote for John McCain.

Barack Obama must be defeated now, rather than later. And, we will not be able to defeat Obama by just hoping that others will do the job, by hanging out mainly in the blogosphere talking to other NObama folks, by just giving up... Here are three recommended actions that you should do over the next three weeks to ensure that Obama is defeated now, rather than later.

ACTIONS YOU MUST DO TO DEFEAT OBAMA...

Hillary Clinton's Actions: Disgraceful, Despicable

Let's see: during the Democratic Primaries, Obama branded both Clintons as racists -- and added that Mrs. Clinton was a warmonger and a liar. So, both of them are now wildly campaigning for their tormentor -- the man Mrs. Clinton labeled as no more than "a speech he gave in 2002." Yes, Barack Obama is an empty suit, but, well, he's also a Democrat.

I sent the following to one of "Hillary's" staunchest supporters -- a woman who, unlike her political "heroine" -- is now campaigning for McCain-Palin.

I would like to say that I think it's time you and other former Hillary Supporters step up to the plate and label her actions on behalf of Obama for what they are: disgraceful, despicable, and immoral. I realize Hillary's Supporters demand almost nothing from her, and she certainly lives down to their expectations.

If this is the real Hillary, she would make a terrible President. She's a weak person, easily intimidated and totally focused on her absurd "career." It is a career based totally on riding on the coattails of men with no respect for her -- Bill Clinton and Barack Obama.

John McCain and Sarah Palin have been completely respectful of her. In return, she's joined Barack Hussein Obama, Chicago politician, heaping garbage on them.

Clearly, she values Party over County, and that's not exactly a quality we want in a person that might occupy the White House.

Obama Campaign: Band of Thugs

Michael BaroneSaturday, October 11, 2008

"I need you to go out and talk to your friends and talk to your neighbors," Barack Obama told a crowd in Elko, Nev. "I want you to talk to them whether they are independent or whether they are Republican. I want you to argue with them and get in their face." Actually, Obama supporters are doing a lot more than getting into people's faces. They seem determined to shut people up.

That's what Obama supporters, alerted by campaign emails, did when conservative Stanley Kurtz appeared on Milt Rosenberg's WGN radio program in Chicago. Kurtz had been researching Obama's relationship with unrepentant Weather Underground terrorist William Ayers in Chicago Annenberg Challenge papers in the Richard J. Daley Library in Chicago -- papers that were closed off to him for some days, apparently at the behest of Obama supporters.

Obama fans jammed WGN's phone lines and sent in hundreds of protest emails. The message was clear to anyone who would follow Rosenberg's example. We will make trouble for you if you let anyone make the case against The One.

Other Obama supporters have threatened critics with criminal prosecution. In September, St. Louis County Circuit Attorney Bob McCulloch and St. Louis City Circuit Attorney Jennifer Joyce warned citizens that they would bring criminal libel prosecutions against anyone who made statements against Obama that were "false." I had been under the impression that the Alien and Sedition Acts had gone out of existence in 1801-02. Not so, apparently, in metropolitan St. Louis. Similarly, the Obama campaign called for a criminal investigation of the American Issues Project when it ran ads highlighting Obama's ties to Ayers.

These attempts to shut down political speech have become routine for liberals.

Congressional Democrats sought to reimpose the "fairness doctrine" on broadcasters, which until it was repealed in the 1980s required equal time for different points of view. The motive was plain: to shut down the one conservative-leaning communications medium, talk radio. Liberal talk-show hosts have mostly failed to draw audiences, and many liberals can't abide having citizens hear contrary views.

To their credit, some liberal old-timers -- like House Appropriations Chairman David Obey -- voted against the "fairness doctrine," in line with their longstanding support of free speech. But you can expect the "fairness doctrine" to get another vote if Barack Obama wins and Democrats increase their congressional majorities.

Corporate liberals have done their share in shutting down anti-liberal speech, too. "Saturday Night Live" ran a spoof of the financial crisis that skewered Democrats like House Financial Services Chairman Barney Frank and liberal contributors Herbert and Marion Sandler, who sold toxic-waste-filled Golden West to Wachovia Bank for $24 billion. Kind of surprising, but not for long. The tape of the broadcast disappeared from NBC's Website and was replaced with another that omitted the references to Frank and the Sandlers. Evidently NBC and its parent, General Electric, don't want people to hear speech that attacks liberals.

Then there's the Democrats' "card check" legislation, which would abolish secret ballot elections in determining whether employees are represented by unions. The unions' strategy is obvious: Send a few thugs over to employees' homes -- we know where you live -- and get them to sign cards that will trigger a union victory without giving employers a chance to be heard.

Once upon a time, liberals prided themselves, with considerable reason, as the staunchest defenders of free speech. Union organizers in the 1930s and 1940s made the case that they should have access to employees to speak freely to them, and union leaders like George Meany and Walter Reuther were ardent defenders of the First Amendment.

Today's liberals seem to be taking their marching orders from other quarters. Specifically, from the college and university campuses where administrators, armed with speech codes, have for years been disciplining and subjecting to sensitivity training any students who dare to utter thoughts that liberals find offensive. The campuses that used to pride themselves as zones of free expression are now the least free part of our society.

Obama supporters who found the campuses congenial and Obama himself, who has chosen to live all his adult life in university communities, seem to find it entirely natural to suppress speech that they don't like and seem utterly oblivious to claims that this violates the letter and spirit of the First Amendment. In this campaign, we have seen the coming of the Obama thugocracy, suppressing free speech, and we may see its flourishing in the four or eight years ahead.

Sarah Palin: Emerging American Heroine




Sarah Palin is everything Obama is not . . .

"The choice of Sarah Palin as John McCain’s running mate has been devastating for the Obama campaign precisely because she is everything Obama is not. Palin is not ashamed of her culture or country. She is not embarrassed by being an American, but naively embraces her birthright. Unassisted by affirmative action, Palin has risen to national prominence on the basis of her character, intelligence and natural gifts. In a word, she has guts. This is a woman who is proud of her country, not because it has granted her personal success, but because she respects what America stands for: freedom, opportunity, and individualism."

Obama dumps a load of dung on Hillary Clinton. She responds by endorsing him.


For the past several months, since the end of the Democratic primaries, I've been watching Hillary Clinton -- a heroine to some -- with a mixture of dismay and disgust. She has been enthusiastically endorsing the man, Barack Obama, who branded her as a warmonger, a liar, and a racist.

It's really shameful. But it's also the continuation of a pattern. For 30-years plus she's been in a marriage of convenience with a man who's a chronic adulterer. Frankly, that is a form of abuse and a source of continuing humuliation. I'm not a psychiatrist, but somehow Mrs. Clinton seems to feel that humiliation by men is her due. Some people won't like my saying that, but in fact it's rather obviously true.

Mrs. Clinton endorses Obama for much the same reason that she stayed with Bill Clinton, her permanent abuser. In some part of her being, she expects powerful men to mistreat her, and in that regard, they don't let her down.

If she had divorced Bill, that would ended her chances for the presidency -- and probably even for the Senate. She hangs around to get ahead. She's become a professional rider of Bill's coattails, a woman who seems to have no life of her own.

Hillary is one of those sad political cases who believes "there's no life outside the Beltway." For her, that absurd belief just may be true, if we can call what she has "a life."

A friend of mine -- a good friend -- from Texas has tried to explain Hillary's behavior this way: "They [Obama? his minions? the Chicago boys?] threatened her. They threatened her daughter [Chelsea]. They even threatened her mother!"

I don't buy it. How does anyone threaten former First Lady, one under constant Secret Service protection? When HRC takes a shower, there's someone outside the bathroom, listening to make sure she doesn't fall. I don't believe for a minute that anyone threatened her. I believe she does what she does because she's a weak human being.

She obviously values her Party over her Country. She obviously values her career over any character she may once have had. She's a sad spectacle. She doesn't deserve to be President. She doesn't even deserve to be a U.S. Senator.

Palin: "My Cold, Dead Lips"


Sarah Palin, Amrican icon, plays many roles in her life . . .


The rapid rise of Gov. Palin of Alaska has generated a number of sites focused mainly on "Sarah," who in the space of four weeks has become an American icon. One of the best of these sites is: http://sarahpalinrocks.blogspot.com/. The following article appeared on that site:


"from my cold, dead lips"...


By Jim Popkin, NBC News Senior Investigative Producer

When federal judges in San Francisco ruled in 2002 that reciting the Pledge of Allegiance in public schools was unconstitutional because it included the phrase "under God," Sarah Palin was not amused. Palin, who at the time was Mayor of Wasilla, Alaska, quickly drafted a terse letter to the editor of a San Francisco newspaper.

“Dear Editor,” Palin wrote in 2002. “San Francisco judges forbidding our Pledge of Allegiance? They will take the phrase ‘under God’ away from me when my cold, dead lips can no longer utter those words,” Palin wrote. “God Bless America,” she concluded.

America's Economy? Basically, It's Fine

thanks to Mike Devine ("Gamecock" on Red State for acquainting me with the material below.) Recently, John McCain said America's economic "fundamentals are good." Of course, Barack Obama and his horde of know-nothings immediately rushed out with a commercial indicating that McCain must be clueless because he was not presenting the kind of hysterical message we were hearing on CNN and MSNBC.

As the article by Max Boot (an excerpt below) shows, what McCain said was factually (key word) correct. Of course, in the world of BHO and David Axelrod, little matters like truth count for nothing -- and demagoguery counts for everything.

Here's the link to Boot's profoundly important essay that appeared in the LA Times.http://www.latimes.com/news/opinion/la-oe-boot24-2008sep24,0,96527.storyThe following is an excerpt from the article:

"What the pessimists ignore is that the fundamentals of the U.S. economy remain strong. Indeed, the World Economic Forum has ranked the United States as the world's most competitive economy for the last two years. (The new survey comes out next month.) Its statistics show that per-capita gross domestic product in the U.S. consistently has grown faster than in other developed economies since 1980.

Looking deeper at the causes of American competitiveness shows that we score especially strongly not only in domestic market size (No. 1 in the world) but also in such areas as time required to start a business (No. 3), venture capital availability (No. 1), the cost of firing an employee (No. 1), ownership of personal computers (No. 2), university/industry research collaboration (No. 1) and quality of scientific research institutions (No. 2).

"The availability of venture capital might be affected temporarily by the market turmoil, and we should worry if Democrats gain control of both ends of Pennsylvania Avenue in November because they might exacerbate what the survey found to be the two most "problematic" issues for doing business in the U.S. -- high tax rates and cumbersome tax regulations. [Note: Of course Obama wants to raise taxes and increase regulation.]

"But whatever happens in the next few months, most of the other advantages that have been powering the U.S. economy forward for decades will remain unchanged.

"So too will another vital statistic: population growth. According to federal statistics, the fertility rate in the U.S., where each woman has on average 2.1 children, is now the highest among major industrialized economies. We are above replacement level while Europe, Japan and other industrialized economies have long been beneath it.

That means that, even as our major competitors have to cope with graying populations, declining productivity and increasing pension costs, our population will remain relatively youthful and vibrant, notwithstanding the retirement of the baby boomers. This advantage is enhanced by our ability to attract and integrate hardworking immigrants from around the world."

Barack Obama, meet Max Boot.

Obama Damaging Women's Health

Governor Sarah Palin and her family have been under relentless attack by Barack Obama, David Axelrod, and their media stooges.
The following letter from "RB" is right on target regarding the sexism and misogyny of the Obama Campaign and its minions in the media. As usual, it's a story the MSM is refusing to discuss. The following letter meanders slightly, but it is a cry-from-the-heart about the devastating effects Obama has had on our society and its politics.

Dear Liz – I do hope you are doing better and your hip is healing. Knowing you, while you were cutting that branch you were stewing like me over all this negativity around women…………..

I don't know if you realize just what this election is doing to women. When I read the problems your friends are having and knowing other women Hillary supporters who are having medical issues, I see nothing but confusion, anger, depression, families fighting within themselves, friends fighting.
It all makes me feel like what have I really achieved……… in this election? Basically, one man -- Obama -- destroyed Hillary, playing the race card over and over.
I am reading such horrible comments on the websites (“whitey will wax our shoes”…… and other terrible comments about women), and I just feel like I don’t matter and other women like do not matter.
For the first time I am afraid to put a bumper sticker on my car for fear of violence. Look at how they protested in front of McCain’s house. People do not realize that this is serious stuff when you make promises, as Obama has, that you cannot keep.
There is just plain thuggery out there – all niceties and values are out the window. Nancy Pelosi apparently became a woman who broke through barriers, but now I realize that there are no barriers for women of the upper class. And when I heard Sally Quinn say of Sarah Palin, “she is not of the establishment”…….. what is that supposed to mean??
Look at how stupidly Congress is trying to add pork to a bill our COUNTRY needs for the economic crisis. The DNC blame the RNC, but THEY the Dems were at the wheel for nearly 3 years now. Did not Christopher Dodd see this, Barney Frank, and even Obama (as well as Ted Kennedy, Joe Biden, Harry Reid, and others)?? You cannot blame Bush for everything – you have to take responsibility and be accountable, and they the Dems have failed to do so.
I was so against the war when all those solders were dead or badly injured, but with the surge I felt optimistic and more so now. But I do agree that this was not a war we should have had. But you cannot put back the milk once its split. What do you think?

Women were told that if you are an achiever and a mother you can "go places" – but does that mean going down only??? Hillary has been round the block, though even she must be depressed and confused with all this.
But Sarah Palin – what did she do? She rose from the ranks of the PTA, had children and one special needs child, and this is the abuse she is getting for achieving, pulling herself to reach the sky? I just cannot believe the venom and hatred spewing out of the mouths of women. The Feminist Movement is DEAD. All they have done for women is burn bras, and the rest is NADA.
I always thought that this is what the movement wanted – a woman who pulled herself up (did not whine), had a family and was successful. Boy was I wrong!!! I felt s honored to know about Gloria Steinam and told my kids all about her……….. now I wish I had not met her because she is not for women’s rights, just for one issue “pro choice” and is a true Elitist……….

Now, we have to keep on hearing all these remarks about women and this poor woman who is so far removed from Washington being picked on daily…… I know all the adage it comes with the territory, but this is not the territory – it is sheer madness and sheer vulgarity.
Look at The View, an icon of America. Barbara Walters is really down in the gutter with the company she keeps. I admired her as she had achieved so much, but she is just a shrill machine for ratings, and is really down in the gutters.

I really feel so down with this election, and I think we not just as women, but as a nation get McCain elected. I wish I did not have medical needs and was a few years younger. Believe me I would travel down to PA.

Am I the only one feeling down and depressed, or have you heard from others? What recourse do we have to this ………. From the emails of today I feel that nothing is going to help. The Empty Suit will probably give us 4 more years of hell.

Anyway, I could not sleep and just wanted to share my thoughts with you knowing your background.

Take care, my friend.

Democrat at Republican Convention

Cindy and John McCain with Gov. Sarah Heath Palin


A Democrat likes the Republican Convention much than her own. This is the kind of commentary you should be reading or hearing in the MSM -- but won't.

It's by Marnie Delano of the Hudson Valley area in New York. She attended BOTH conventions, the Democrats' as a protester and the Republicans' as an invited guest. She was at the GOP event there in support of Gov. Palin.

Marnie is a lifelong Democrat, but she's doing important work in backing McCain-Palin. She blogs often and well at: http://truthisgold.blogspot.com/. She's hoping to come to Pennsylvania to campaign -- although her own state has gotten very close!


A TALE OF TWO CONVENTIONS


by Marnie Delano


Upon hearing the news that Sarah Palin had been chosen as John McCain's running mate and learning of the spate of vicious sexist attacks upon her, Thelma, Louise and Princess Laia veered suddenly left and north to head to the Republican Convention in Minneapolis. In our last episode, we had arrived safely thereon and were making plans to be interviewed and attend Governor Palin's speech scheduled for Wednesday, September 3.


Today finds us mulling over the events of last night, and all the permutations therein. It was a first for this writer: attending a Republican convention was the last thing I ever thought I would be doing.


Amidst frantic phone calls from family asking whether I had lost my mind, I marched forth with my stalwart sisters to make our stand for feminism, women's rights, and human rights.


Irrespective of candidates' ideologies, it is our position that sexist smears, comments and accusations cannot be tolerated, at any time or any place. To continue to allow this kind of thing to perpetuate is to keep all people enslaved. As Hillary [Clinton] says, "Women's Rights Are Human Rights."


We were met at the skybox most graciously by two lovely RNC officials and were immediately struck by the contrast between the two conventions. Just having come from Denver, we had experienced and witnessed a great deal of unpleasantness--delegate intimidation, aggressive Obamabots, hostile and arrogant DNC officials were the rule rather than the exception, and at times the only friends we felt present were the Denver police, the foreign press and the residents, all of whom were terrific.


On the other hand, the officials and attendees here in St. Paul have been nothing but open, welcoming and enthusiastic about our presence. Regardless of whether one agrees with Sarah Palin's policies, one has to respect her right to voice them without fear of her family or herself being maligned.


The utter disrespect and sexism that has emerged, once again, toward a woman running for office in the United States is unacceptable.


When Joe Biden lost a wife and child in a car crash years ago, no one suggested to him that he quit his job to stay home and take care of his children; no one has suggested that he is a poor parent because his daughter was arrested for obstructing justice--in fact, no one even REPORTED the incident, which occurred years ago, until NOW!


And so it goes. It will not stop until we MAKE it stop. Call us what you will--we will not stop until equality is a reality, not just something Democrats feel they can apply only to themselves or those of whom they approve.


Equality is for EVERYone...all races, religions, creeds, genders, and yes...even political parties. Even Republicans have the right to be free from sexist, personal assaults upon themselves and their families. If one is maligned, we are all vulnerable.


The author of the above piece, Marnie Delano of the Hudson Valley, New York, is a member of the NoBama Mission Leadership Group dedicated to the election of John McCain and Sarah Palin. I'm also a member of that group.

Bill Clinton Praises Sarah Palin

Sarah doing the "Habitat for Humanity" duties


Recently, in an interview with CNBC's Maria Bartiromo, Bill Cliton gave his initial opinion of Sarah Palin. And it's glowing.

CLOSING BELL WITH MARIA BARTIROMO

Clinton said, "She’s an instinctively effective candidate. And with a compelling story. And she grew up, came up in a political culture, a religious culture that is probably well to the right of the American center. But she didn’t basically define herself in those terms.

"She basically said: 'Look, this is where I come from. I’m not going to impose this on you. This is what I want to do and I think we can all be a part of.' So she handled herself very well."

Thus, according to Bill, Sarah has a record of placing the needs of the electorate above her personal beliefs. Someone I can trust to put the needs of our country above the needs of her party. A refreshingly accurate portrayal for a change.
And her abilities as a leader? Need I say more? Bill is impressed.
He says, "But I get why she’s done so well. It’s a mistake to underestimate her. Her intuitive skills are significant."

Obama Not Black? Plus Palins

Tomorrow I'll write about "Is Barack Obama Really Black?" The answer will surprise you. If he's elected, he will NOT be our "first Black President," much as he'd like you to think otherwise. Below, see how you can help Sarah and the Palin Family.

"We cling to our God . . . and our Children." Sarah, Todd, and Trig Palin
Note: It's absolutely critical that all of us reach out to as many people as possible to indicate our support for John McCain and Sarah Palin. Here's how you can do so: Make Phone Calls from Home. . . Reaching out to undecided voters in your state. That's vital to spreading the word that John McCain and Governor Palin are the right choice for voters all across America. That's why we're asking you to take a few minutes or even a free evening to make calls for John McCain and Governor Sarah Palin. You can call your local McCain or GOP office and volunteer, or you can phone from home in your spare time. Visit www.JohnMcCain.com/PhoneBank to get started today.
If you'll scroll down to the prvious columns, you'll see why Bill Clinton has his fingers crossed -- and probably his toes -- when he says he supports Obama, the man whose campaign labeled the former President a racist.

BILL CLINTON CAN'T ENDORSE OBAMA

Can Bill Clinton support Obama? He certainly can PRETEND to do so. But he's cant -- in good conscience -- support a man who although with his surrogates and media toadies labeled his wife a warmonger, a liar, and a racist. He especially can't endorse a man who, along with his top advisers, branded Bill Clinton himself a racist. Seemingly, just about anything is possible in politics, but some things that are possible are not plausible -- such as forgiving a former opponent for despicable conduct.

The following CNN story suggests why you should take with a grain of salt any suggestion of an endorsement of Obama by the Clintons. A man who plays the worst form of racial politics, Obama, should not be a serious candidate for President.

Bill Clinton: Obama camp 'played the race card on me'Posted: 10:27 AM ET
From CNN Political Producer Alexander Marquardt, CNN's Chris Welch

Former president Clinton campaigned for his wife in Pennsylvania recently.

(CNN) — On the eve of Tuesday’s critical Pennsylvania primary, former President Bill Clinton accused Barack Obama’s campaign of playing the race card against him.

After the phone interview with Delaware radio station WHYY Monday night, a stray comment of his on the issue was also recorded before he hung up: “I don’t think I should take any s*** from anybody on that, do you?”The former president had been asked whether his remarks comparing Obama’s strong showing in South Carolina to that of Jesse Jackson in 1988 had been a mistake given their impact on his wife Hillary Clinton’s campaign.

No, I think that they played the race card on me,” said Clinton, “and we now know from memos from the campaign and everything that they planned to do it all along.”

We were talking about South Carolina political history and this was used out of context and twisted for political purposes by the Obama campaign to try to breed resentment elsewhere. And you know, do I regret saying it? No. Do I regret that it was used that way? I certainly do. But you really got to go some to try to portray me as a racist.”

He added that the way Obama’s campaign had reacted was “disrespectful to Jesse Jackson” and that the former presidential candidate had told him he was not offended, and that “we all know what’s going on."

UPDATE: At a Pittsburgh press availability,

Obama was asked about Clinton's charge that his campaign had drawn up plans to use 'the race card.'“Hold on a second,’’ he said. “So former President Clinton dismissed my victory in South Carolina as being similar to Jesse Jackson and he is suggesting that somehow I had something to do with it? You better ask him what he meant by that. I have no idea what he meant. These were words that came out of his mouth. Not words that came out of mine.’

Bill Clinton, Obama: Dark Hearts

Gov. Sarah Palin in red outline addresses huge crowd at Colorado Springs Airport.


Sarah Palin, Hillary, and Biden
On the meeting between Bill Clinton and Barack Obama: Are we really to believe that the substance of the two men's discussion was Bill's advice that Barack use the same Mud Machine on Sarah Palin previously employed successfully against Hillary Clinton. That would be too cynical even for Beltway politics -- wouldn't it? Joseph Conrad wrote a novel about people's descent into evil -- "The Heart of Darkness" -- and both men should read it.

If you want to click above on "Sarah Palin, Hillary, and Biden" you can read more about the real possibility that Hillary Clinton will replace Joe Biden on the Democratic ticket. To use a mixed metaphor, check the tea leaves carefully (Biden's recent statements) -- and then see if something doesn't smell very fishy.

Shocker: Hillary to Replace Biden

Sarah Palin, America's most lovable "pit bull" -- lipstick no additional cost

The column below (yesterday's) about Hillary Clinton replacing Joe Biden on the Democratic ticket is accurate. The column below (yesterday's) about Hillary Clinton replacing Joe Biden on the Democratic ticket is accurate. The information is coming from very knowledgable and patriotic Americans -- who are very fearful what damage an Obama presidency would do to their country.

If Mrs. Clinton accepts the V-P offer -- and it appears she will -- the damage to our nation's political system would be enormous. On a lesser plane, it could destroy her reputation.

In regard to the "Hillary V-P story," I've heard from several HUNDRED people, including some in the national media. In fact, I have nothing additional to say to them. As time goes on, however, I'll have plenty more to say to you -- and to individuals in the media who do not spend all their waking moments being cheerleaders for a deeply flawed candidate, Barack H. Obama.

How are the "PUMAs" reacting? Most of them are horrified -- and outraged. They have moved on from the Democrats' soap-opera. They believe they're being manipulated. Most of them love Gov. Palin and strongly support McCain-Palin. They don't want Hillary Clinton to commit the biggest mistake of her political career. They are no longer inclined to engage in endless rationalizations for her behavior -- and that of her husband.

Many still revere the Clintons, but they fear they've lost their minds.

We (Clintons4McCain, NoBama Mission, and other coaltion groups) know (as opposed to "believe") that the campaign of rumor, innuendo, and hatred directed against Gov. Sarah Heath Palin is orchestrated by Barack H. Obama and his minion David Axelrod. It's carried on by various extremist groups, including Moveon.org and Daily Kos. The Obama Campaign tells them what falsehoods and innuendoes to print, and they do it. All of these groups are paid -- directly or indirectly -- by Obama, Inc.


What on earth is going on in America? Please understand that far-left Obama Democrats truly believe "there is no life beyond the Beltway." That is of course ridiculous, but they do indeed accept it as an article of faith.

Many of them have huge personal fortunes (Kerry, Pelosi, Kennedy, Kohl, Lautenberg, Rockefeller, Feinstein, Clinton, and Edwards in his day), and they're willing to spend whatever it takes to retain their places in Congress.

The Obama Democrats have as their role model Sen. Robert Byrd of WV, a nine-term Senator, one with 50-plus years of so-called "service." You ask, service toward whom? And the sad answer is "service to himself and his Party." Sen. Byrd, now wearing adult diapers, doddering about the Senate floor, and frequently breaking into tears, is the ideal. He's expected to run for re-election.

His epitaph might read, "He outlasted everyone else." What did he do for his country? Not much. .

Obama Dumps Biden, Chooses Hillary

The lady, Sarah Palin, who has scared the Dems into casting aside Biden and choosing Hillary as V-P. Are they desperate or are they desperate?

Obama to name Hillary as V-P candidate as Biden gets unceremoniously dumped . . .
"I have a lifetime of experience. Sen. McCain has a lifetime of experience. Senator Obama has a speech he delivered in 2002." (Hillary Rodham Clinton)

We have received information from sources high in the Democratic Party that, in a cynical, desperation move, Hillary Rodham Clinton will replace the hapless Joe Biden as V-P candidate on the floundering Obama ticket. I will send out more information on this within the next hour. Hillary Clinton has said that Barack H. Obama is not qualified to be Commander-in-Chief. He hasn't grown any more qualified presumably in the past few weeks. As the saying now goes, "It took a Republican woman [Sarah Palin] to have the Obama Dems name a woman to the ticket."

"Stand up! Stand up! And fight for what's right" (John McCain)

Much more information to follow later . . . On my blogs, I first broke the news that John McCain would name Sarah Palin as his running mate (scroll down to the columns two weeks ago today).

People Who Hate Sarah Palin

Who hates Sarah? The liberals and the Democratic Party hacks trying desperately to dig up dired on her . . .

People who "don't like" Sarah Palin are those who don't like the fact that America is an extremely diverse country. They can't stand people who aren't . . . just like them. The goal of government in America is to empower people so as to help make them (us) stronger and better off -- more capable of assuming responsibility for our lives. The government doesn't do it -- how on earth would it? The people do it, or they don't. Some of your friends like Barack H. Obama because he promises to pay them off (with what?) for their votes. The people Sarah represents are ones who would not starve to death if the local Whole Foods closed. They're the ones who produce the foods available in Whole Foods. When the vast majority of people can't basically take care of themselves, they sure as hell can't take care of others. Barack forgot that little detail. Sarah didn't . . . and won't. She is tough, and they are weak. She will win, and they will lose.

Trig Palin: The Stolen Pacifier

The following piece is about the Obama's Campaign never-ending attempt to dig up dirt in order to destroy Gov. Sarah Heath Palin. Since the attacks come exclusively from the Democratic Party, those who participate in any way in that Party's activities are in fact enablers of evil.

The following is humorous -- in a rueful way. It has gone viral, and I appreciate the many positive comments I've received.

Led by the "Chosen One," the Obama Campaign tends to get WAY off message, with long clouds of hot air being used to answer questions no one has asked. But it will get better at that. The ads and the smears will grow increasingly hateful -- and bizarre.

The current attack message is that Gov. Palin is a (shudder) Christian. Imagine that! What an outrage to the well -heeled liberal ladies of the Upper West Side and the desiccated secularists of "The View."

The New York Times will do a carefully crafted editorial on how any candidate who not an agnostic or athiest is truly fit to serve. MSNBC will launch an expose on something-or-other.

In general, the modern Democratic Party is anti-Christian and anti-women. People like Obama and Biden list their "religious affiliation" with about as much conviction as they note their membership in the Kiwanis Club. I wish that were not true, because one would hope both Parties were responsible and committed enough to run the country.

The campaign to destroy Gov. Palin is going to fail. It is as pathetic as it is malicious and mendacious.

We will hear endless charges that when she was 7 years-old Sarah took an extra cupcake at school. Presumably, some mentally disturbed person at her OLD church will make bizarre theological statements that will then be attributed (absurdly) to the Governor. We will also hear that Bristol Palin was not well-liked by three girls in junior high.

I wish I were exaggerating, but I fear that I'm not. We'll certainly hear unfriendly comments from some of the political crooks Sarah helped put in jail. Piper Palin will be questioned intensely on how many Black friends she has.


We will learn some truly shocking news: that Sarah once borrowed a cup of sugar -- and did not return it. A psychologist associated with "Entertainment Tonight" will analyze the underlying significance of the sugar theft. Theologians from the University of Chicago will be consulted to determine exactly which commandment Sarah broke.

Reporters will thoroughly examine Sarah's trash. It will reveal a rich lode of evidence: coffee grounds, used bread wrappers, spinach Piper refused to eat, and an extremely provocative empty bottle of olive oil -- Extra Virgin!

Does that bottle contain hidden significance? Is it a veiled plea for chastity before marriage? Is it a hidden rebuke to Bristol? There are now more lawyers (all from Chicago apparently) and media dirt hunters in Wasilla than there are permanent residents.

The National Enquirer has a half-dozen people there (the entire Chicago bureau?), presumably looking for evildoing related in some arcane way to John Edwards mistress, Rielle Hunter, and Todd Palin.

Trust, me, Sarah's boyfriend when she was age 15 will receive constant media attention. Someone may find a copy of her secret diary composed during the ages 11 to 13! It will be examined closely for links to her current political philosophy.

Attempts will be made to steal Trig's pacifier. If the heist is successful, look for it on eBay -- opening bid at $10,000. Then, look for the Palins to buy a new one for $1.98 -- "film at 11."

A reference or photo in (Bristol-fiance) "Levi's" MySpace will receive eight hours analysis by Matthews and Olberman. Track Palin will be accused of cross-checking a rival in a hockey 2004 match. Todd Palin's snow-machine racer will be subjected to forensic analysis.

So, how do we win this election? If everyone who now favors McCain-Palin will recruit one new supporter -- or shore up one who's wavering, we will indeed prevail.

And, by the way, whatever happened to the "lovely" Michelle Obama? Did he ("the Chosen One") dump her without our knowledge? Perhaps she's relocated to friendlier climes, such as Kenya? Was Barack seen -- or was he not -- in the company of Rielle Hunter.

Actually, I believe Michelle is under the same bus where Barack tossed grandma. And where oh where is Rev. Jeremiah Wright when we most need him?

Sarah Palin: Lipstick, Pit-Bull

Sarah Palin is dominating the print and electronic media, and McCain-Palin bloggers (500 strong) are beginning to dominate the Web.

Sarah Palin: "You know the difference between a pit bull and a hockey mom? Lipstick!"

[If you ever wondered (but why?) what I look like (hint: NOT Brad Pitt) and sound like (more like BHO than Sarah Palin), the link following is me appearing on KDKA Web TV in Pittsburgh. I am debating two women liberals regarding Gov. Palin. At one point I say, "I think I'm the only one here who takes women seriously." I also suggested they were watching entirely too much "Nick at Night." http://kdka.com/video/?id=45870@kdka.dayport.com Note: I have five daughters, four of whom voted for Hillary Clinton -- along with my wife -- in the Democratic Primaries but all of whom are now backing McCain-Palin.]
Thanks to the 140,000-plus people who have visitied my blogs in the past eight days. My main blog is: http://camp2008victorya.blogspot.com/. I also have a very popular blog established in April that appeals mainly to people who supported Hillary Clinton and are now behind McCain-Palin: http://hillarysupportersformccain.blogspot.com/. Finally, there's my Pennsylvania-specific blog: http://pennsylvaniaforjohnmccain.blogspot.com/. I hope you'll visit all of them frequently.
I was the blogger who broke the story that McCain would choose Sarah Palin as his running -- at 2:30 a.m. two Fridays ago.
Bulletin: Cristi Adkins, a media star in her own right, provided me the following first-hand report of today's (Wednesday's) McCain-Palin rally in Fairfax, Virginia:
"Went to a Sarah Palin and John McCain rally today in Fairfax. It was excellent work, and a crowd of at '20,000' reported by the volunteer there. The energy was spectacular.The crowd went wild when Cindy McCan came on stage -- and even wilder when they announced John McCain's name."
"What happened when they announced Gov. Palin? You could hear the cheering for MILES, and I do not exaggerate.
There was no more room at the event, and people were literally listening to her in the street, sidewalk and on the corners of parking lots.This was incredibly energizing and inspiring. To see someone so brutally attacked and humiliated go right back out there and fight again . . . "
