Default Palin Rumors

since some of you folks love to post 'em i thought i'd put this guy's site up for y'all too see.

Palin Rumors

Cripes, this has gotten ridiculous. Folks, look, let’s just run through a list here. (Updated.)

No, the Downs baby (Trig) isn’t Bristol’s kid, and no, the kid wasn’t born with Downs because (a) Palin flew on an airplane (b) went home to have the baby after an amniotic leak (c) because he was the result of incest between Todd Palin and Bristol.

No, Track (the kid who is leaving for Iraq) didn’t join the NG because he was a drug addict. He may have joined the NG because he was tired of people saying his Mom was getting him into the good hockey leagues. (Yes, that one was original reporting. I’ve got sources in Wasilla.)

No, she’s never been in any porn as far as anyone can find (and God knows I get enough google hits on those very topics.)

No, no one seems to be able to even find swimsuit pictures of her from her beauty queen days; God knows I looked. The bikini pictures that are around are photoshopped, just like the Vogue cover I have up.

No she wasn’t a member of the (wild-eyed libertarian) Alaska independence Party, although her husband once was

No, neither the (Canadian) National Post, nor Marc Armbinder at the Atlantic have troubled themselves to issue a correction. Yes, the New York Times did finally correct their story of September 1 — on September 5. This was after Elizabeth Bumiller was quoted by Howard Kurtz as saying she was “completely confident about the story.” Yes, that was after the New York Times’s source retracted the story. Yes, this should embarrass the Times, Bumiller, and Howard Kurtz. No, there have been no signs of embarrassment.

No, she was never a Pat Buchanan supporter; even when Buchanan claims she was, she was on the board of Steve Forbes’a campaign in Alaska.

No, she’s not anti-semitic. In fact, she has an Israeli flag in her office. (Contrary to popular belief, the usual Evangelical thinks Israel has a right to exist, granted by God.)

No, she’s doesn’t believe that the Iraq War was directed by God. Yes, she did pray that proceeding with the war was God’s will. (Ever hear the phrase “Not my will, but Thine, be done”?)

No, Buchanan doesn’t support her now; in fact he’s supporting Obama. (Buchanan did think her speech was amazing, but then so do 80 percent of the people who saw it.)

yes, she was pregnant when she got married

No, so far there’s no confirmation she had an affair while she was married, and they’ve denied it pretty strongly. No, she wouldn’t be the first Christian woman who got a little on the side, if it were true.

No, she wasn’t named as a co-respondent in a divorce; there’s no evidence she had an affair with her husbands’ business partner. The partner tried to have his divorce records sealed because he was being harrassed by journalists who used them to get his phone number.

Yes, barring immaculate conception, Bristol appears to have had sex with her fiancee. No, Bristol didn’t receive only “abstinence-only” sex ed.

Yes, I have it on reliable report that Sarah Levi’s mom has been heard screaming “Way to go Levi!” at her future son-in-law son. No, it doesn’t appear to have been when Bristol broke the news to her family.
Note: I originally understood this story to be about Sarah, not Levi’s mom, in the context of hockey games. As such, it’s shouldn’t be in a Sarah Palin Rumors story, but I like the story too much to delete it.

yes, her 17 year old daughter is pregnant; no, the baby’s father is not an eighth grader; no, having sex at 16 is not statutory rape in Alaska

yes, she did fire the public safety guy — but he said in the Anchorage paper that, for the record, she never, and no one else in her administration ever, tried to make him fire her ex-brother-in-law

and yes, the state trooper (her sister’s ex-husband) she was worried about did: tase her 10 year old nephew; drive his state patrol car while drinking or drunk; did threaten to “bring her down”; and did threaten to murder her father and sister if they dared to get an attorney to help with the divorce.

yes, the state trooper was suspended when he was put under a court protective order

no, the trooper wasn’t fired

yes, she did fire the Wasilla Chief of Police as Mayor; yes, it was because he was lying to the City Council.

Yes, she did try to cut her own salary as Mayor by $4000 a year; yes, she had voted against the $4000 a year raise while on the City Council.

No, she didn’t cut funding for unwed mothers; yes, she did increase it by “only” 354 percent instead of 454 percent, as part of a multi-year capital expenditures program. No, the Washington Post doesn’t appear to have corrected their story. Even after this was pointed out in the comments on the story.

No, she didn’t cut special needs student funding; yes, she did raise it by “only” 175 percent.

yes, she did try, clearly unsuccessfully, to get Bristol married off to her fiancee before the story came out

yes, she did ask the librarian if some books could be withdrawn because of being offensive; no, they couldn’t; yes she did threaten to fire the librarian a month later; no, that wasn’t over the books thing but instead over administrative issues; no, the librarian wasn’t fired either; yes, the librarian was a big supporter of one of her political opponents; yes, the librarian was also the girlfriend of the Chief of police mentioned above; no, this is not the first time in the history of civilization that someone has been threatened with being fired over a political dispute

No the list of books she wanted to ban that’s being passed around isn’t real; among other things, it includes a number of books published after her time in office there.

No, that hasn’t actually deterred people from claiming it really is true even if the list isn’t correct. For example:
“This list might not in fact reflect the books Sarah Palin wanted banned. As more than one person in Comments has pointed out, some of them were not published when Palin was in office. It is my hope that the mainstream media will not let this story drop and that at some point an actual list will surface. The very thought of having someone who once advocated book-banning possibly occupying one of the highest offices of our land fills me with profound dread. It should fill you with dread too.”

No, I don’t understand why a fake list is supposed to fill me with dread, either.

no, it wasn’t a shotgun wedding; Bristol and Levi been engaged for a good while according to his mother. It was either an accident or just an unconventional order.

yes, she’s an Assembly of God Holy Roller.

yes, she apparently believes in some variant of Intelligent Design
no, she didn’t try to force the schools to teach it; she said if someone brought it up, it was an appropriate subject for debate.

yes, she kills animals and eats them, and wears their skins

yes, she was a beauty contest contestant

yes, she was once a sportscaster

yes, she has a college degree in Journalism, but I won’t hold that against her, as she seems to have found honest work as well

yes, she sometimes wears her hair up; no that’s not a “beehive”

yes, her husband is Not A White Person (he’s a Yup’ik; an Eskimo but not an Inuit as my Inuit cousins have taken some pains to explain)

yes, she has on occasion tried to get money from the federal government.

yes, she did finally turn down the money for the bridge. Yes, that meant changing her mind about it.

yes, she was vetted extensively, not just in three days — I’ve got links to press reports about people coming to Wassila on 29 May, and we had her on our Veepstakes at PJM from the first day we ran it.

yes, she want to a bunch of colleges before getting a degree. No, that’s not illegal. Yes, she seems to have made something of herself anyway.

no, they didn’t talk to a lot of the R’s power structure during the vetting; that probably has to do with the fact that she beat them in elections and sent a bunch of them to jail.

Yes, Sarah Palin’s acceptance speech was written by a speechwriter. Duh.

No, none of Obama’s, McCain’s, nor Biden’s speeches were impromptu off the cuff things either.

Yes, she did put the Governors plane on eBay. No, that’s not how it was finally sold. Yes, McCain did say it wrong. Bad McCain.

Anyone who sees a new rumor, leave it in a comment.

That list is total crap and a great deal of it already proven. such as 'yes, she did finally turn down the money for the bridge'. No, she didn't. She didn't build one of the two bridges she still supports, but she never returned any money.

Try to get a list from someone who isn't biased.


Quote:
Alaskans Speak (In A Frightened Whisper): Palin Is “Racist, Sexist, Vindictive, And Mean”

“So Sambo beat the bitch!”

This is how Republican Vice Presidential nominee Sarah Palin described Barack Obama’s win over Hillary Clinton to political colleagues in a restaurant a few days after Obama locked up the Democratic Party presidential nomination.

According to Lucille, the waitress serving her table at the time and who asked that her last name not be used, Gov. Palin was eating lunch with five or six people when the subject of the Democrat’s primary battle came up. The governor, seemingly not caring that people at nearby tables would likely hear her, uttered the slur and then laughed loudly as her meal mates joined in appreciatively.

“It was kind of disgusting,” Lucille, who is part Aboriginal, said in a phone interview after admitting that she is frightened of being discovered telling folks in the “lower 48” about life near the North Pole.

Then, almost with a sigh, she added, “But that’s just Alaska.”

Racial and ethnic slurs may be “just Alaska” and, clearly, they are common, everyday chatter for Palin.

Besides insulting Obama with a Step-N’-Fetch-It, “darkie musical” swipe, people who know her say she refers regularly to Alaska’s Aboriginal people as “Arctic Arabs” – how efficient, lumping two apparently undesirable groups into one ugly description – as well as the more colourful “mukluks” along with the totally unimaginative “f**king Eskimo’s,” according to a number of Alaskans and Wasillians interviewed for this article.

Quote:
Exploiting 9/11?

Sarah Palin on Wednesday:

Quote:
Our son Track is 19. And one week from tomorrow - September 11th - he'll deploy to Iraq with the Army infantry in the service of his country.
It's a touching story of patriotism inspired by the 9/11 attacks, except according the New York Daily News, it turns out not to be entirely true -- her son is actually deploying on September 12, not September 11.

Quote:
Palin was expected to break from the trail to return to Alaska and see off her oldest son, Track, 19, who is deploying to Iraq with his Army unit on Sept. 12.
Of course, there is no need to embellish her son's honorable decision to serve this country, and nothing that Sarah Palin can say can cheapen that. But if the Daily News story is accurate, it says something pathetic about her character.

Are people not sick of the crassness? The pandering? The lies?

Does the GOP have anything else?

maybe i should get a list from Elisabeth Bumiller, the "unbiased" reporter you leaned on for your AIP rant. the source retracts her statement, yet Bumiller is "completely confident about the story". is she taking reporting lessons from Dan Rather?

http://www.johnmccain.com/mccainrepo...c-e7b083e2bc2d

Quote:
Bumiller Stands By Her Story...After Paper Retracts

Yesterday the New York Times ran a front-page story by Elisabeth Bumiller that was riddled with factual errors. Among them was the assertion by Bumiller that Governor Palin "was a member for two years in the 1990s of the Alaska Independence Party." There was no evidence offered to support this statement, and as this campaign pointed out, it is untrue. Now the Times reports:
The information in the Times article was based on a statement issued Monday night by Lynette Clark, the party’s chairwoman, who said that Ms. Palin joined the party in 1994 and in 1996 changed her registration to Republican.

On Tuesday night, Ms. Clark said that her initial statement was incorrect and had been based on erroneous information provided by another member of the party whom she declined to identify.
Just to be clear, Bumiller asserted as fact what turns out to have been an "incorrect" statement by a single, unidentified source. Given that the story appeared on the front-page of this country's 'paper of record,' we might be forgiven for expecting a slightly more rigorous standard of reporting, yet Bumiller makes no apologies. Howard Kurtz reports in today's Washington Post:
Elisabeth Bumiller, the lead author of the Times report, said she is "completely confident about the story." As for the campaign's criticism, she said: "This is what they do. It's part of their operation."
She is completely confident in the word of a single source who has since retracted her claims? What kind of operation are the editors at the Times running?

Oh aye, because attending the convention several times over the years and addressing your support of them, while your husband is a member, doesn't mean you agree with them.

But had Michelle Obama attended so much as one pro-'Black Panther' or pro-'Communism' group in College then the Republicans would be on it like stink on shit and calling Barack Obama a Black Militant.

Contrast how the Republicans cast Rev Wright on Obama for the things he said while Obama wasn't there to how they ignore what Palin's reverend said while she was there. Stark difference.

Anatomy of a Smear - Who are Dick and Sharon Price?

Quote:
Two members of Barack of Obama’s campaign, Dick and Sharon Price, created a post today on their “LA Progressive” blog that accuses Sarah Palin of using the name “Sambo” to describe Barack Obama.

Aside from the fact that this constitutes slander, for there is absolutely no evidence - sources, etc, there is more to the story about “Dick and Sharon”. First, their blog only came into being on 10 March 2008 according to whois records.

This is about the time that several satellite Pro-Obama blogs began to appear around the internet, several of which were found to be funded by the Obama campaign. Most likely this rag is funded by the Obama campaign as well.

Secondly, according to sources they are bona-fide Democrat political operatives that are known for planting such slanderous stories about opposition candidate going back for a while now.

The source called them “assassins”.

The fact that the story wasn’t designed to do anything but get the story into Google search engines tells you much of the type of characters these two are - bottom feeders and just what kind of people support Barack Obama.

UPDATE: To note how bad this lie is, the Daily Kos which linked to it earlier deleted the link.

If it is then it is, and that's fine. But until someone tracks down this 'Lucille' and finds out, we'll not actually know.

I don't mind her not being racist, she's too many other things, proven things, for me to be concerned that she looks down on people of color: she looks down on everyone.

My turn:

THE Obama's really are full of them selves, never had any job other than Govm't paid ones (one way or another).

Comes from Chicago, the most corrupt city in the union. Sucked up to every black pol in the area in order to even get a chance. Stabbed his opponent in the back to get ahead and lost.. Got lucky stabbing the second one and got voted in. Refuses to vote if it MIGHT put his ass on the line. Present is the best he can do (AKA chicken shit).

Talks a good line, but that's all it is, talk

The big problem is his hat size.

His brain is too fuc'n small.
(however his big ears seem to be able to listen to the polls )

Let's see...

Quote:
Following high school, Obama moved to Los Angeles, where he studied at Occidental College for two years. He then transferred to Columbia University in New York City, where he majored in political science with a specialization in international relations. Obama graduated with a B.A. from Columbia in 1983, then worked for a year at the Business International Corporation and then at the New York Public Interest Research Group.

Obama entered Harvard Law School in late 1988 and at the end of his first year was selected as an editor of the Harvard Law Review based on his grades and a writing competition. In his second year he was elected president of the Law Review, a full-time volunteer position functioning as editor-in-chief and supervising the law review's staff of 80 editors. Obama's election in February 1990 as the first black president of the Harvard Law Review was widely reported and followed by several long, detailed profiles. He graduated with a Juris Doctor (J.D.) magna cum laude from Harvard in 1991
And then there's...

Quote:
McCain attended Episcopal High School, a private preparatory boarding school in Alexandria. In high school, he excelled at wrestling and graduated in 1954.

Following in the footsteps of his father and grandfather, McCain entered the United States Naval Academy at Annapolis. There, he was a friend and informal leader for many of his classmates, and sometimes stood up for people who were being bullied. He also became a lightweight boxer. McCain came into conflict with higher-ranking personnel, he did not always obey the rules, and that contributed to a low class rank (894 of 899) despite a strong intelligence. He did well in academic subjects that interested him, such as literature and history, but studied only enough to pass subjects he struggled with, such as mathematics. McCain graduated in 1958.

I can honestly say you're as smart as John McCain. Congrats.

"I gave a direction to all my commissioners if they were ever in their house, whether it was Juneau or elsewhere, they were not to get a per diem because, clearly, it is and it looks like a scam -- you pay yourself to live at home."

Palin Billed State for Nights Spent at Home

Taxpayers Also Funded Family's Travel
James V. Grimaldi and Karl Vick

ANCHORAGE, Sept. 8 -- Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin has billed taxpayers for 312 nights spent in her own home during her first 19 months in office, charging a "per diem" allowance intended to cover meals and incidental expenses while traveling on state business.

The governor also has charged the state for travel expenses to take her children on official out-of-town missions. And her husband, Todd, has billed the state for expenses and a daily allowance for trips he makes on official business for his wife.

Palin, who earns $125,000 a year, claimed and received $16,951 as her allowance, which officials say was permitted because her official "duty station" is Juneau, according to an analysis of her travel documents by The Washington Post.

The governor's daughters and husband charged the state $43,490 to travel, and many of the trips were between their house in Wasilla and Juneau, the capital city 600 miles away, the documents show.

Quote:
"The policy was not to reimburse for family travel on commercial airlines, because there is no direct public benefit to schlepping kids around the state," Knowles said. The rules were articulated by Mike Nizich, then director of administrative services in the governor's office, said Knowles and an aide to another former governor, Walter Hickel.

She's such a mavericky reformer! And smart too! Well, smarter than McCain, seeing as she attended 5 colleges to get her BS degree..

Quote:
Palin spent her first college semester at Hawaii Pacific College, transferring in 1983 to North Idaho College and then to the University of Idaho. She attended Matanuska-Susitna College in Alaska for one term, returning to the University of Idaho to complete her Bachelor of Science degree in communications-journalism
And she's had nothing but BS ever since. Gotta love those mavericks..

The governor also has charged the state for travel expenses to take her children on official out-of-town missions. And her husband, Todd, has billed the state for expenses and a daily allowance for trips he makes on official business for his wife.

Palin, who earns $125,000 a year, claimed and received $16,951 as her allowance, which officials say was permitted because her official "duty station" is Juneau, according to an analysis of her travel documents by The Washington Post.

The governor's daughters and husband charged the state $43,490 to travel, and many of the trips were between their house in Wasilla and Juneau, the capital city 600 miles away, the documents show.

what a great post jack. show the first few paragraphs of the story and then cherrypick a comment from a former Democratic governor.

allow me to post a few quotes from the same article that you "neglected".

Quote:
Gubernatorial spokeswoman Sharon Leighow said Monday that Palin's expenses are not unusual and that, under state policy, the first family could have claimed per diem expenses for each child taken on official business but has not done so.
Quote:
The state finance director, Kim Garnero, said Alaska law exempts the governor's office from elaborate travel regulations. Said Leighow: "The governor is entitled to a per diem, and she claims it."
Quote:
Leighow noted that under state policy, all of the governor's children are entitled to per diem expenses, even her infant son. "The first family declined the per diem [for] the children," Leighow said. "The amount that they had declined was $4,461, as of August 5."
Quote:
Gov. Palin has spent far less on her personal travel than her predecessor: $93,000 on airfare in 2007, compared with $463,000 spent the year before by her predecessor, Frank Murkowski
i wonder what Governor Knowles' expenses were.

typical trash by the "respected" Washington Post ........front page article with a bold headline inferring that she did something wrong. yet all one has to do is to read the entire article to find that she in fact did nothing wrong.

i expect something like this every day until the elction.

never said she broke the law dd, as a matter of fact the 3rd paragraph of my post quotes a current official as saying it was "permitted." so enough w/the cherrypicking stuff.

if alaska pols voted themselves the privledge of fleecing their constituents it doesn't make it right, especially for self described reformers. if all you've got is she didn't violate some toothless laws you've got nothing.

maverick reformer?

nope.

more of the same?

yep.

expect to see the real palin begin emerging very quickly. trust me, it ain't gonna smell like the fish she peddled to the rubes at the convention.
