TIME Person of the year: Gov. Sarah Palin is the 3rd runner up

Wow! I think it took a lot for TIME's editor to admit that Gov. Sarah Palin is really popular.  But instead of putting her the first runner up ( Sarkozy is the first runner up!!), they put her for 3rd runner up!  

Still congratulations is in order to Gov. Palin, just 6 month ago, she was hardly a national figure. But like it or not she is now.  

But do try to read the article about her in the TIMES and compare it to what they had to read about President elect Obama.  The contrast in the tone, one being so rosy and the other not, is amazing.  But I not surprised any more.

This will be my last post for this blog, thank you for stopping in on daily basis for the last 6 month.  I think we ended the year with a positive note for Gov. Palin. We wish her well and hope she will come back stronger and more dynamic than ever before.  

But if you still want to stay in touch, you can visit me here which is my regular non-political but inspirational blog

Is Palin a kingmaker?

After Chambliss won in Georgia, he credited Gov. Palin for his victory. So, who would Gov. Palin endorse for RNC chair?

Marc Ambinder wonders the same and says:
"Who will Sarah Palin endorse for RNC chair? Who's the Palin candidate? Saxby Chambliss's victory has certified the Palin wing of the party as the center of its gravity -- at least, that's how the GOP seems to be treating things. If Chambliss's words are indicative of GOP thinking, Republican activists and conservatives, then Palin must have a pretty tight grip.
The answer to the question is that Palin hasn't endorsed an RNC candidate, and her political advisers aren't saying whether she will."

Georgia Crowd Came Out For Gov. Palin

Crowds lined the street from the James Brown Arena waiting to get in to see Sarah Palin speak with Sen Saxby Chambliss.

And here is what she had to say: "All of this depends on you tomorrow. Georgia," she told several thousand gathered this morning at the James Brown Areana. "The stakes are so high. America is depending on you."
Mrs. Palin said Republicans need to hold the line in the Senate. She said the party offers checks and balances to stop tax hikes, promote conservative energy polices and see the war on terror end with a successful conclusion.

Gov. Palin Is A Digital Superstar!

Politico Reports:

Palin was the most popular Lycos search from the week she joined the ticket continuously through last Sunday, some two weeks after the election, when she was dethroned by Paris Hilton, the celebutante whom John McCain famously compared to Barack Obama.

The Alaska governor now ranks fourth, just one spot below Obama, on the weekly Lycos 50 list.

Gov. Palin in Georgia to help Rep. ticket.

Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is traveling back down to Georgia next Monday to do four last-minute campaign rallies in one day to help incumbent GOP Sen. Saxby Chambliss.

Chambliss is in an apparently close-fought runoff race there with Democrat Jim Martin and the balloting is the next day, Dec. 2. Big-name Democrats have jumped in to help the party reach for its 60-Senate-seat, filibuster-proof majority by knocking off yet another Republican incumbent.

UPDATE on her trip here.

Pro-Palin ads "thank you" ads hit the airways.

Now everyone is begging Gov. Palin for an interview!

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) -- Oprah wants her, and so do Letterman and Leno. Fresh from her political defeat, Sarah Palin is juggling offers to write books, appear in films and sit on dozens of interview couches at a rate that would be astonishing for most Hollywood stars, let alone a first-term governor.

"Tomorrow, Gov. Palin could do an interview with any news media on the planet," said her spokesman, Bill McAllister. "Tomorrow, she could probably sign any one of a dozen book deals. She could start talking to people about a documentary or a movie on her life. That's the level we are at here."

"Barbara Walters called me. George Stephanopoulos called me," McAllister said. "I've had multiple conversations with producers for Oprah, Letterman, Leno and 'The Daily Show.' "

Continue to read here.

This is just amazing, same people who ridiculed her and played along with all the lies about her, now need Gov.  Palin for their rating and they need HER to make more publicity about their own shows!

I still like Palin, say's liberal/feminist Paglia

Camille Paglia, a liberal, pro choice feminist had this to say about Gov. Palin after election in article:

"I like Sarah Palin, and I've heartily enjoyed her arrival on the national stage. As a career classroom teacher, I can see how smart she is -- and quite frankly, I think the people who don't see it are the stupid ones, wrapped in the fuzzy mummy-gauze of their own worn-out partisan dogma. So she doesn't speak the King's English -- big whoop! There is a powerful clarity of consciousness in her eyes. She uses language with the jumps, breaks and rippling momentum of a be-bop saxophonist. I stand on what I said (as a staunch pro-choice advocate) in my last two columns -- that Palin as a pro-life wife, mother and ambitious professional represents the next big shift in feminism. Pro-life women will save feminism by expanding it, particularly into the more traditional Third World."

"As for the Democrats who sneered and howled that Palin was unprepared to be a vice-presidential nominee -- what navel-gazing hypocrisy! What protests were raised in the party or mainstream media when John Edwards, with vastly less political experience than Palin, got John Kerry's nod for veep four years ago?"

If you watched Sarah Palin's interview with Greta, go her to vote what you thought.

Gov. Sarah Palin's interviews

In her first network interview since the election, Governor Sarah Palin sat down with NBC's Matt Lauer in an extensive interview:

Well, a lot of people think you'd be best serving them in Washington. There was a recent poll of likely Republican voters. And they talked about 2012. And more than 60 of them said maybe you should be the person to have the nomination in that year. And challenge then President Obama.
Well, life is very unpredictable. And that's the excitement of life. You never know...
Have you thought about it?
...what is around the next corner. And I do not know what is around the next corner. I don't know what opportunities will be there. But I know that, today, and tomorrow, I will be in the Governor's office in Anchorage and in Juneau serving the people of Alaska.

Here are some more excerpts from her interview with FOX:
About allegedly not knowing Africa was a continent. Not true. Didn't happen. She'd long been familiar with the continent since, among other things, getting Alaskan investments out of Darfur. Same on allegedly not knowing that NAFTA includes Mexico and next-door Canada, which has considerable trade with Alaska.

On the media: Many of its members often seem eager to believe the worst about her without fully checking, taking at face value online assertions such as she was not the birth mother of Trig or that as mayor she tried to censor books that hadn't been published when she was mayor. And how much longer it seemed to take for the truth to catch up to the initial false reports.

On criticism of her: No problem. It comes with the political territory. Her family is used to it, too, from local and state politics. Well, wait, there was one moment in Philadelphia when her 14-year-old daughter Willow asked about protesters wearing T-shirts calling Palin a crude word for female genitalia.

On the clothes for her and her family: She never ordered any. Never asked for any. They were waiting when the family arrived at the Republican National Convention and belong to the Republican National Committee.

Palin said she's never set foot in a Nieman-Marcus or Saks, kept none of the purchases and prefers her own closet of clothes.

Sarah Palin was ready, but not McCain!

 Bill McGurn writes on Palin: “We are asked to believe that Mrs. Palin was not ready for a national campaign. On what evidence from any part of this election are we to conclude that anyone on the McCain campaign team was ready for a national campaign?”

Who is afraid of Sarah Palin?

Jeffrey Bell on Sarah Palin: “The reason elite opinion makers are set on destroying her is fear. They sense that like Ronald Reagan, and unlike, say, Mitt Romney or Tim Pawlenty, she really, genuinely doesn’t care what they think, and for that reason is willing and able to go over their heads and make a strong, direct appeal to voters.”

Gov. Palin don't give any interviews! please

FOX NEW reports:
ANCHORAGE, Alaska -- Gov. Sarah Palin hadn't been back home in Alaska for a full day and her staff had begun fielding requests Thursday for postelection interviews, including from Barbara Walters, Oprah Winfrey, Larry King and others.
Palin had been expected at her office in Anchorage but later notified her staff that she wouldn't show up after all. She remained at her home in Wasilla, located 40 miles to the north, but was expected in her office on Friday, spokesman Bill McAllister said.
"The intensity of all the interest is amazing. Everyone wants to talk to her," he said.
Palin is coming off a whirlwind nine weeks of almost nonstop travel and campaigning since becoming Republican John McCain's vice presidential running mate in late August. McCain and Palin lost Tuesday's election to Democrats Barack Obama and Joe Biden.

These people are still trying to bring Gov. Palin down. I hope she will not give any interviews. Please call her office and urge her not to give interviews to Oprah and Barbara. They just want to use her for their ratings. Here is the contact information:

Juneau Office, Phone (907) 465-3500, Fax (907) 465-3532

Anchorage Office, Phone (907) 269-7450, Fax (907) 269-7461

The real Sarah Palin

What about this sign?  

I found it in Glenn Beck's website.  He also has an article on Sarah Palin.

Tuesday, November 4, 2008

Goodby Sarah! for now...

Congratulations to Obama for being our first black president. America is truly a great country and no one can tell us that this is a racist country. Not anymore!

However, I will miss seeing Sarah. She lost the election but she inspired many women to be more active and get involved. Because of her, the base got energized and excited. Thank you John McCain for introducing us to Gov. Palin. My wish is that Gov. Palin will be involved on the national stage. She is a talented politician and connects with average people and that's what we need more than ever. We don't need Washington elitist to tell us how to run our country. Let's take it back from them, let's get more involved.

UPDATE: Have a look at the video Ron has put together!  But we need to keep our chin up high..good times will be waiting for us!

The Audacity Of Hope For Palin Fans!!!

It's our turn now, and it looks like we can dare to hope to see a woman VP in the White House. It's getting closer. The new TIPP/Investor's Business Daily Poll is out. And it's got the race tightening:

Obama 46.7% McCain/Palin 44.6% Undecided 8.7%

From the poll:

The race tightened again Sunday as independents who'd been leaning to Obama shifted to McCain to leave that key group a toss-up. McCain also pulled even in the Midwest, moved back into the lead with men, padded his gains among Protestants and Catholics, and is favored for the first time by high school graduates.

Keep your positive energies up and get out to vote, specially if you are in Pennsylvania, Ohio, Florida, Nevada and Missori. Make sure to volunteer!

'I Haven't Always Just Toed the Line'

An excellent Palin interview in WSJ, here is some excerpt, but you need to read the whole article:

All of this, says Mrs. Palin, undermines suggestions by conservative critics that she represents an us-versus-them streak in the party. She bluntly suggests they are missing the point. "I think those who would criticize what I believe I represent -- and that is, everyday, hardworking American families who desire and deserve reform of government -- I think they are out of touch with what the rest of the nation is talking about today. It's a reflection of some elitism that assumes that the best and the brightest of this country are all assembled in Washington, D.C., and I beg to differ. You can walk out in the rally that we are going to attend in a minute, and you talk to anyone there, and I believe you will hear the same thing. Enough of that arrogance. Enough of that assumption that unless you are a part of that Washington elite that you aren't worthy of serving this great country."
She also explains that what distinguishes a new generation of reformers in the party -- people like her, or Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal -- is a willingness to learn from Republican failures or successes of the past, and apply them to current concerns, say health care. "We have the luxury of looking back with 20-20 hindsight." She mentions Ronald Reagan, his ability "to win the Cold War without firing a shot" and his focus on pro-growth policies, as examples of those successes. But she also notes that today's global economy and global threats have combined to demand more from leaders.

Please also visit Hillbuzz blog.  This blog belongs to Hillary supporter that are voting for McCain/Palin ticket.  

Here is what she said today in a rally Erie, Pennsylvania:
"Rousing speeches can fill a stadium, but they cannot keep this country safe. For a season, a man can inspire with his words. But for a lifetime, John McCain has inspired with his deeds."

Palin's A Brainiac

Well, you for sure will not see this headline anywhere in the mainstream media, but I am glad that I will be able to post for you to read:

The former editor in chief of Ms. magazine (and a Democrat) on what she learned on a campaign plane with the would-be VP.  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.

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.

To Know Her Is To Respect Her

Here is the latest article by Fred Barns on Gov. Palin.  Here are just a quick excerpts:

Palin's record is another critical test of her personal skill as a leader. What has she done? A lot more than Kaine or Pawlenty or most governors. She ousted an incumbent governor of her own party, successfully fought corruption in the party, and tore up a deal with oil companies, forcing them to accept a less lucrative agreement on a new natural gas pipeline.

In judging Palin, it comes down to who is more credible. Is it those who've worked with her, or know her, or have at least met and talked with her? Or those who haven't? The answer is a no-brainer. Okay, I may be biased on the subject of Palin, having been impressed after spending nearly two hours with her on one occasion and an hour on another.

My advice is ignore the critics who know far less about Palin than she does about foreign policy. A good example is Ken Adelman, who headed the arms control agency in the Reagan administration. Adelman recently endorsed Obama and said he "would not have hired [Palin] for even a mid-level post in the arms control agency." Well, I know both Palin and Adelman. And Ken, I'm sorry to tell you, but I think there are an awful lot of jobs in Washington that Palin would get before you.

Not So Fast Mr. Obama

Today, Gov. Sarah Palin was at a rally at the Silver Spurs Arena, in Kissimmee and here is what she had to say:
"Barack Obama and I both have spent quite some time on the basketball court," Palin told a raucous crowd of more than 5,000 at the convention center. "But where I come from, you have to win the game before you start cutting down the net."

Gov. Palin, A New Kind Of Feminist

Ideology Aside, This Has Been the Year of the Woman

Palin's candidacy has sent a jolt through traditional liberal women's organizations as she tries to redefine feminism, suggesting that the old movement has become detached from the hockey moms Palin champions. The mother of five and former beauty queen is the antithesis of the bra-burning militant libbers of the '60s, and she is adamantly antiabortion. Yet Palin has grabbed the feminist label vigorously and has been hailed as one by the thousands of supportive women who wave their lipstick tubes at her rallies.

"She is a direct counterpoint to the liberal feminist agenda for America," John McCain declared last weekend.
