Flashback:Olbermann & Matthews Review Governor Palin's Address To The 2008 Convention

Visit NBCNews.com for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

Keith Olbermann remarked that, "People who like this sort of thing will find this the sort of thing they like." Olbermann added that there was a "lot of sarcasm," "condescension towards Obama." Chris Matthews noted that Palin and Hillary Clinton "have nothing in common" and that her being chosen has "nothing to do with Hillary Clinton. " Instead, Matthews said, "She is a torpedo aimed directly at the ship of Barack and Michelle Obama." "This is a cultural alternative to Obama. A very direct cultural shot," he added.

The Last Post-Ceasing To Blog.

This will be the last post for this site and my broader commentary site: 
  M.JosephSheppard's A Point Of View


After 6 years of activism for the conservative point of view, and especially having had the honor of discussing Governor Palin I am retiring. I have had a lifetime of political activity at various levels, an have been a published author on political economy, a president of a political party I well know that there comes a time when the field should be left to those who are younger.

I don't regret a moment of my spirited support for Governor Palin and in another age, and  in a young mind and body, my support for George McGovern! I was right then and am right now as history showed and will show. These six year shave been amongst the most creative, productive and interesting of my life-I've made countless happy interactive connections and heard views that have added to my store of knowledge and insight-I'd do it all over without hesitation.What has been a profound revelation was to see that so many people get up in the morning with the intention to hate someone they have never met-one can't help but to reflect with pity.

I am dedicating my time to promoting my wife's new book; "The Shining Hours"    


and am undertaking a work of my own which experience has shown has to have full dedication. As for Governor Palin, I made it clear that this site was always about promoting her as the GOP nominee but, if circumstances or her own decision precluded that, the title of the blog could just as well be "Palin in The Presidency 2016" as it is her ideas and ideals that are at the core of my support which ideals transcend the person. I set this out some time ago in a post reproduced below.

 I will leave the two sites up as I note that many people search for and read the older articles, and there are some university studies that show Governor Palin was a plus for the McCain campaign which can be of value to rebut critics.

To the +700,000 people of goodwill who viewed the two sites my sincere thanks and to those, and of course to Governor Palin and her family I extend my best wishes and regards

Palin-ism In the Presidency

Subsequent to the Los Angeles Times major article proposing Sarah Palin as "the Cure" for the GOP and it's suggestion that Palin may be an ideal candidate for 2016
there have been howls of derision from the left.

That is to be expected in Los Angeles of course, the unexpected however was the article itself. Amongst the huge number of leftist criticisms was a recurring theme that has been running for two years now. It has numerous variants, but in sum if runs along these lines "Palin is an egotist/She will drag out the "will she won't she" run game for four years whilst getting suckers to send her money" and suchlike.


Leaving aside that the decision to run for president is a momentous one, not only for a candidate but for their family.

As Palin knows, probably more than anyone. A merciless and unfair blowtorch is immediately focused on the candidate and anyone associated with them. Thus if Palin takes a long time to come to a decision, only a poltroon would condemn her for that.

The arrogance of the left is such that they consider that anyone who supports Sarahpac financially is a dumb sucker.

Obviously Palin supporters are well aware she may not run when they send money to Sarahpac. They do know that the money will go towards supporting candidates for office that Palin approves of. They also know it will not go towards "supporting Palin's extravagant lifestyle" and other such childish leftist idiocies.

Those who support Palin obviously would like her to run, but we obviously know that she may not.When we support her, in the media, or financially, or on the ground when her chosen candidates run we are supporting Palin-ism. Obviously we would like to see Palin-ism put in to effect by Palin herself, but if that is not to be, then seeing it effected by people she supports will also do. For us it is money and time well spent.


The leftist cynics can simply go to hell.


I addressed this matter before the Los Angeles Times article and reproduce it below as a supplement to the new commentary above.



This site is not absolutely about Sarah Palin regardless of the Blog title. Of course I, and I am sure a massive number of others, judging by her Facebook followers being over 3 million, would wish her to run in 2016.


But Palin is only one person, and a person with massive family commitments, especially with Trig of course. It may be that she has developed a taste for the freedom from financial constraints and from media criticism worries, and is happy to enjoy the rest of her life in comfort and ease.

If so, good for her. Surely nobody else in public life has endured the slings and arrows of outrageous leftism over the last four years and would be entitled to such a respite as her skills and endurance has gained for her.

There are of course many options for public involvement open to her. She will be in demand as public speaker for some time yet as an historic figure at least.

The currently Dem. held Alaskan senate seat is up for election in 2016, and of course she can continue endorsing and campaigning for candidates she considers it important to do so. Her influence as an endorser is undiminished as e.g Ted Cruz in Texas will testify.

But even if none of these options appeal to her (which I doubt) this blog would change from Palin4President2016 to "Palinism In The Presidency 2016". No matter how great or influential and correct a person's political, social and economic  ideas and ideals are, they will outlive their originator if they have lasting value.

The "common sense conservatism" policies that Sarah Palin espouses and exemplifies, are lasting if not timeless and will be her legacy no matter what her personal future holds. An outline of  what she, and this site stands for are
AT THIS LINK

In the meantime, unless or until Palin herself  advises she will cease any activism which might lead her to make a run for office, the blog title will stay as it is. Should she decide to leave the political scene then a simple change of emphasis from the person to the policies the person espoused will suffice.

Governor Palin Reaches 4,000,000 Facebook "Likes"

From US4Palin
And from me; Palin4President 2016 hits 325,00 page views too :-)
sarah-palin-4m
Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin today reached 4 million likes on her Facebook public figure page.
Sarah Palin established the page on August 29, 2008 when she was still a sitting governor in her home state of Alaska and she became John McCain’s running mate for that year’s Presidential election. Her first post after the campaign was to announce the formation of SarahPAC. Most significantly she predicted the existence of death panels in ObamaCare. Whether it was the BP gusherFast and FuriousNSA spyingBenghazi, endorsing candidates such as Lt. Col. Allen West,Ted Cruz, and Paul Gosar; or providing simple glimpses into her personal and family life, Sarah Palin’s Facebook page has been a principal means by which she brings her message to the mass market. The page has also served as a vehicle of communication between Gov. Palin and her supporters for the past five years.

Gov.Palin's New Endorsement Expressed In Powerful Forceful Words "The Content Of her Character" On Display

Texas, it starts with you!

2014 is here. The choices are becoming clearer, and the battle lines are being drawn. The GOP Beltway crowd has convinced itself that the way to maintain or retake the majority is through compromise and capitulation on important issues like amnesty, Obamacare, and the ever-increasing federal debt. They think that by making deals with a deeply unpopular and divisive incumbent president on issues that Americans oppose, they’ll somehow endear themselves to voters.

Enough is enough. The permanent political class in D.C. won’t listen. So, let’s start putting our efforts behind good new candidates who will go to Washington 
not to line their own pockets, but to help restore our country. It’s time to put inspiration, ingenuity, and integrity over incumbency in the GOP.

Let’s start in Texas. The lines couldn’t be clearer. Katrina Pierson is an emerging leader and important voice for the future of the grassroots conservative movement. Her life’s story is full of hardships she has fought to overcome, which taught her firsthand the importance of self-reliance, hard work, and the blessings of liberty.

A feisty fighter for freedom, Katrina is taking on a powerful incumbent who has so lost touch with the people of his district that he’s not even bothering to spend much time in Texas anymore. It’s not only his district he’s lost touch with, but also the issues important to the voters there. He used his powerful position to oppose the movement to defund Obamacare, has voted to raise the debt ceiling, and has been an advocate for the NSA intrusion into our freedoms. 

When asked about Katrina’s primary challenge, he said, “these things happen.” Yes, they do. We all know what happens when we come together to support a good candidate like Katrina – the permanent political class loses and We the People win! We win by electing a fighter we can depend on like Katrina Pierson. Ted Cruz calls Katrina “an utterly fearless principled conservative.” He should know. Katrina was among the conservative grassroots warriors in Texas who worked tirelessly to elect Senator Cruz.

Early voting started yesterday, Texas. Get out now and vote for Katrina. Send a message to the GOP elites on behalf of Katrina, just like you did for Ted Cruz in 2012.

And while you are out there voting for Katrina, check the box for another good conservative – Greg Abbott for Governor of Texas. Like Katrina, Greg has overcome many personal obstacles and challenges, which have made him a believer in the power of liberty and the need to defend our freedoms from the overreach of an out-of-control federal government. If he is good enough for Ted Nugent, he is good enough for me! 

You can learn more about Katrina Pierson at: www.katrinaforcongress.com
and more about Greg Abbott at: www.gregabbott.com

God bless you and God bless America.

Four Academic And Polling Company Reports All Conclude Palin Helped McCain 2008

The left, and, sadly some on the supposed right keep pushing the story that "Palin cost McCain the election in 2008." The weight of academic study from university political science departments and from polling companies and respected political sites all utterly refute this allegation-or rather blatant lie as the case may be.

Rather than detailing the salient points from all of these studies I link them below.Anyone with the slightest leaning to a non-biased point of view-no matter how leftist they were would have to admit this independent, academic analysis makes it very clear what the truth is.

This graph makes it clear as day what the "Palin effect"
was for McCain's campaign and exactly when his chances ended after being ahead. Just after Lehman Brothers collapse you can clearly see Obama go from being behind to zooming straight up in Electoral College votes.

Biden Destroys Left Meme That "Palin Cost McCain The Election" With Honest Reference To Economic Collapse & Inferred Palin Momentum

- Vice President Joe Biden said Friday that if not for the economic collapse surrounding the 2008 presidential race, Sen. John McCain might have beat President Barack Obama.
"The truth of the matter is, Barack knows it, I know, had the economy not collapsed around your ears, John, in the middle of literally, as things were moving, I think you probably would have won," Biden said during the annual Sedona forum at the McCain Institute for International Leadership at Arizona State University.

Redux;Enthusiastic Comments From Republicans Who Said They Would Vote For McCain When He Chose Palin-Harbinger For 2016

NB;IF COMMENTS DON'T APPEAR BELOW THEY CAN BE FOUND:    AT THIS LINK
****************************************************************

Foremost amongst the leftists attacks on Governor Palin are the "Palin cost McCain the election" calumnies. That academic study after study LINK has shown either the opposite to be the case or Palin to have had a neutral effect on the 2008 McCain campaign is irrelevant to the left's Alinskyite/Goebell's tactic of repeating a lie over and over.

The linked studies HERE and HERE  post election polls HERE show that Palin made a significant contribution to lifting the then moribund McCain campaign after her selection was announced, massively so after her convention speech and she put the McCain campaign back on track after  the economic collapse with her debate performance against Biden.


What the comments below show is the instant reaction from people who were not going to vote Republican but, immediately on hearing the new of Governor Palin's selection, enthusiastically changing their minds. This is the again dormant support,which was reflected in the millions of conservatives who stayed home on election day when Romney ran which can be galvanized if  Palin is the 2016 Nominee.


Here, from the famous Adam Brickley site that played such a major part in Governor Palin's selection are the hundreds of excited enthusiastic comments from the day Palin was confirmed-including from people who were going to vote for Obama! I would expect nothing less in the way of similar excitement and enthusiasm in 2016 if she were the nominee.

Can Wolfson support McCain/Palin any more without coming out and saying it?! I'm loving this! And I believe Hillary is done working for Obama. She wants the nod in four. Why help him? She had to do the convention speech. She doesn't have to do anything else.

Lee Strong said...
The Obama Fan Club pundits at MSNBC are probably choking right now and furiously digging for any dirt they can about Palin (Let's see, she got a B+ in economics in the second quarter in her senior year in high school ....)

I feel excited about this choice. Congratulations.
TrueRedHead said...
MSNBC is absolutely choking on this news. Andrea Mitchell sounds like she's just lost her best friend. And they are spinning, spinning, spinning to the negative. One of their bullet points, of course is "Under Investigation." They are SO obvious.

Okay, back to Fox for the big announcement.

Anyone here tear up when it was becoming evident that palin was the veep pick? I can't believe I did, I just didn't think McCain had it in him....
jack-of-all-thumbs said...
As an Obama supporter I'm not a happy camper right now. Because I agree with you that she was a very savvy pick; THE pick that I was really hoping that McCain wouldn't make.
Ricky said...
This seals the deal for me with McCain. Congrats on a great pick. Somethign that is desperately needed in the Republican party.
Joseph said...
Adam, good call. Somewhat prophetic, eh? If we can get the skeptics to embrace Gov. Palin, then I think that this will be a victory for the GOP. What a wonderful day for this frightful political season!!

Wonder if she comes out to the song we picked for her. That would be icing on the already heavily iced cake.

Listen to that crowd!!

This has me giddy. The BEST news. As a mom from the liberal state of Washington who wants to see REAL change - this is it! I've been reading up on Sarah Palin ever since a Rush caller mentioned her name a few months ago, and I would have never believed this day would actually arrive. It did. I'm amazed. Where can I get my McCain*Palin bumper sticker?
JJ said...
Congratulations!

I know! A lot of people don't seem engaged at all. Come on, people! This is historic! There is a WOMAN on the Republican ticket!!!!!!! We're gonna beat the Democrats at their own game!

Leslie---I want a McCain/Palin bumper sticker, too! I also want a yard sign, a hat, a T-shirt, etc! I have never been so excited about a ticket in my life!
Mountain Mama said...
WOW! Did you see the blonde Jewish reporter on MSNBC (or was it CNN? I think it was CNN) tell OFF the male sexist reporter who was dissing Palin for having a baby with Downs: "Don't Downs babies need extra care? Shouldn't she be spending her time with her baby?"

MAN-----that blond reporter just SNAPPED right back at him: "NO one would be saying a WORD like that to a MALE politician with a new baby! WHY are you saying this about HER!?"

He then shut up......

GO McCain-Palin!!!!!!!!!!

How do I get my hands on McCain/Palin signs, stickers, t-shirts??

Also, who can I send my resume to??
loki said...
I admit I did not think McCain would go with Palin. I'm thankful that he did.

She sounded great in her speech. At the beginning she seemed a little nervous...but as she spoke further she seemed to be hitting her stride. So now she has her first and probably one the most improtant speeches out of the way.

I believe first impressions are everything. I think she proved herself and made people want to know her more. She made people feel comfortable with her. Her first speech, she did what she needed to do...and more.

I am beyond happy.

I find it interesting that Obama the candidate for change chooses a VP like Biden, how is that change? Apparently he is all talk, but can't walk the walk. And early on the Obama campaign continues their disrespect of women.. from Hilary to Sarah by belittling her experience.

McCain may not be a great and stirring orator like Obama, but he is a man of substance & bravery. The Maverick speaks softly, and DELIVERS CHANGE, with his pick of Sarah Palin.

McCain/Palin!

I hope you all enjoyed the frenzy last night. I was asked to comment on this blog by the McCain campaign last night to reveal information and stir up controversy about Sarah Palin as the VP pick. The leak originated here. That was no accident.

I would like to thank all those who were involved. This blog has been a major source for John McCain's interest in Sarah Palin.

On behalf of the McCain campaign, thank you and God bless.

I am so proud. This is definitely the righ pick for McCain. She must be very special and a strong leader. Just what America needs. STRONG, DOWN TO EARTH LEADERS TO LEAD AMERICA!!!!
CognitiveDissonance said...
As a PUMA and democrat in exile, this pick made me cry with joy! I've long felt that if McCain were bold enough to pick Palin, it would be a grand slam that Obama would never recover from - particularly since he didn't pick Hillary as his VP. I live on the West Coast, am very familiar with Sarah Palin's record, and love her! I couldn't be happier. John McCain just earned my vote and he will get it in November.

Thank YOU, Drew. We are all beyond excited!!!

The campaign handled this absolutely masterfully. It's so much fun to watch the media scrambling to get on board.
Darlene said...
I write for sciencecheerleader.com Folks are asking me to report on Palin's position on teaching creationism vs. evolution in the schools. Anyone have any insight? Thanks, Darlene
Tricia said...
I was not a big McCain fan, but now I am behind him 100%! Go Palin!

Congratulations from a Huck-supporter! I've been hoping that McCain would pick Governor Huckabee as his running mate, but I want everyone here to know that Governor Sarah Palin has always been one of my top 3 favorite VP choices!


CONGRATULATIONS TO GOVERNOR PALIN - THE NEXT VICE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES!
TrueRedHead said...
Obviously this blog is THE place to be today. Adam, all us "long-time" Palin supporters are proud to say we knew you when :-D
Jill said...
Earlier I clicked on her bio on amazon (I read it already) to check the sales and just now saw it go from 280 thousand something in rank to a current 2,294. It'll go higher fast. It was pretty good and had some good photos, but so much more could have been written. It was a fast read. It's called Sarah: How a Small Town Mom Turned Alaska's Political Establishment on Its Ear. Maybe they should write another one about how she's turning AMERICA'S political establishment on its ear. Also, on a separate note, if you want to say thanks to McCain, you may think about contributing to the campaign if you can do it, and putting Sarah's name in as the friend who referred you!
Mrs. P said...

*kisses Drew on the lips--again* *wipes tears*

Thank you Drew! You were so awesome last night, and while we couldn't completely accept you without proof, please know that we all wanted you to be right. Your news about McCain's interest in this blog must be so gratifying to Adam. Kudos to you for reaching out to this passionate portion of the constituency. I trust that time will prove how good a decision this has been.
Slyde said...
well, color me surprised.

this pick for VP certainly makes the race alot more interesting that it even already was...
Vinny said...
I'm waiting for some McCain Palin gear to appear on the McCain website.

There is some McCain/Palin stuff on Cafepress if anyone is interested.
Bill said...
What an exciting pick! McCain's pick of Palin and Obama's giving Hillary a speaking role without even vetting her speaks to the deepest issue of "style versus substance" of this campaign! I just blogged again about this pick on my site:

www.cityonahillpolitics.blogspot.com

Congrats gang! We did it!
CountUsOut.wordpress.com said...
PUMA here (Party Unity My A**). We are THRILLED with McCain's choice of Governor Palin. We will be honoured to have her as our country's Vice President! Outstanding choice!! WOWOWOW!!

I'VE BLOGGED ON MYSPACE. NOW WHERE DO WE GET BUMPER STICKERS, SIGNS, YOU NAME ITS?
Mountain Mama said...
THANKS, Drew, for leaking to us FIRST last night re. Palin as McCain's VP pick! I apologize for being skeptical about your veracity/motives!
* SMOOCH! *

Thanks, too, Gary, for noticing the plane from Alaska: good job hunting for the scoop! Wasn't that a HOOT last night! We knew it HAD to be her, didn't we Ted, Erin, Night Owl!

Now the onslaught by the drive-by media begins..... They are all so, bottom line, JEALOUS!!!!!!!

Yea, McCain, for being BRAVE!

(Boo! Hiss! to the WIMP Obama, who made a "safe" and DUMB choice: a Washington insider! SHAME!)
AskMieke said...
GENIUS just GENIUS!!!!!
I've only found you today, after the announcement. I was soft on my support for McCain, but this choice gives me confidence that the Republican Party may be reformed on a national level...// I couldn't be more thrilled.
wk4christ said...
Re: Now the onslaught by the drive-by media begins

Yep! The liberal media has already begun attacking her. They are so lame. Her opponents developed that "scandal" in Alaska to try to discredit her and prevent her from becoming VP. How pathetic!

They're already questioning her experience. She's a GOVERNOR, for crying out loud! She has been working to root out corruption. We don't need someone from the establishment, like Biden We need Palin!!!!!

By the way, I sent an email to all the McCain offices, thanking McCain and the campaign for choosing Palin. I'd suggest we all do the same; let them know how excited and appreciative we are!!!!!
Jonathan said...
Fantastic! Check out the comments on HillaryClintonForum.net. True Hillary supporters are thrilled. Congratulations to Adam and all who helped get the word out about Gov. Palin. Now, let's get her elected!
apolytongp said...
I was going to vote for Barr, but now I may come back to Repuublicans. Never heard of the lady til now. But she is great. There will be a real citizen versus politician slant to this campaign now. And a real anti corruption slant. If anything it excites me about aspects of McCain. Helps take the bad taste out of last 8 years of being taken for granted by bush/Cheney/Rove.
Kristin said...
I'm a long-time Republican woman who is SO proud of her party right now! Palin is a brilliant choice...she has ALL the right things in her background: mother, child in the military, gun handy, stands up for what's right rather than what is popular or down the party line, chose life for a child with Down's...it goes ON and ON.

Definitely the kind of woman I want in my party. Definitely the kind of VP I can get behind. What a breath of fresh air.

As for those who talk about inexperience, you have no legs to stand on. Not only is Obama very inexperienced, so was Bill Clinton. Ah, what a short memory the Dems have.

She brings the right kinds of strengths to the ticket. McCain, I wasn't all that hip on you, but you just completely sold me now. This proves to me that you are what you say you are.

Go McCain/Palin!
Yomi Mizuhara said...
There are 4 people to thank here:

1) Adam - For the forum and for the space to really kick ass.

2) Drew - Leaking here was a BRILLIANT move.

3) Marc Ambinder - Without your work on the flight charts, we wouldn't have the early morning buzz.

4) Everyone here - Y'all kept the faith and you guys kicked the ass and took the names!

Sarah Palin - A woman I can believe in. Change that is real. Style and Class in a league of her own.
wk4christ said...
Re: True Hillary supporters are thrilled

And that makes all this even more exciting! Get the Hillary people into the camp! And there were 18 million people that voted for her....that's a lot of potential votes!

Palin is going to bring so many people together! I am soooo thrilled!
Mountain Mama said...
ALSO----Kudos to good ole Bill Kristol, for promoting Palin months ago!
Matthew said...
Adam, do you have any media types calling you, now? Any chance we'll be hearing you on the radio, today?
Catherine said...
I didn't expect this one--but I'm sure glad Palin is the picked! What a great day for conservative women and family values! McCain-Palin '08!
The B said...
Perfect pick and perfect timing. I was hoping for either her or Bobby Jindal for a while.
I am a happy conservative this day.
Eaglemaniac said...
Absolutely AWESOME!!! Maybe this could get my vote to count for something in this DEM abyss of California! I'm hopeful that this could potentially lead to a real chance for a McCain/Palin victory in California!
Stacy said...
Congratulations Adam. Thanks to everyone here who posted with me last night. This blog and it's bloggers found that plane four hours before the news media. Adam....I'm having a drink on your behalf.

Our new task, should we choose to accept it (--ahh, who am I kidding--of course we will): defending Sarah Palin.

And not just against the Dems and their media lapdogs, either. Anyone checked out PowerLine?
Gary said...
It is ironic that some female libs are posting on here about the fact that she is JUST A WOMAN!! That is so funny!
SHE IS A STRONG WOMAN WHO HAS ACTUALLY RUN A GOVERNMENT, UNLIKE HILARY! SHE IS STRONG AND CAN SHOOT A GUN, AND SHE MORE THAN LIKELY WOULD HAVE CAPPED HER HUSBAND IN REAR IF SHE EVER CAUGHT HIM FOOLING AROUND!!
I APPEARS THAT THERE IS NO REASON FOR TODD TO EVER LOOK AT ANOTHER WOMAN!
He a VERY attractive wife, mom, Governor, and FUTURE VICE PRESIDENT!!
It is so funny that leftist women do not a strong female LEADER like SARAH OR CONDI!!
It is an oxymoron!!
WE WILL SEE SARAH AND TODD A LOT IN OHIO!!!!!!
flapper said...
Hey guys. I've been off the site for a couple of days. Did I miss anything?

Wow this is wonderful news and I am now filled with hope for this election!

I need to know if anyone is interested in starting a blog or webpage to further this campaign. I have secured MccainPalinnews.com and MccainPalin08buttons.com.
The buttons are to get them out for our candidates.
I am not in this for money, but rather to get the word out for them....any thoughts?

Hey, we caught the plane heading into Middletown last night!
I have been campaigning for SARAH for 3 Months!!
I have sent her videos to relatives and church friends all over!!
TrueRedHead said...
Watching Anita Dunn, Obama campaign rep on FOX right now. She looks like she's swallowed a lemon. Of course, the line is "At the end of the day, Sarah Palin has still been a big suuporter of the disastrous Bush/Cheney policies."

Boy, do they hate this. boy do I LOVE it!
AJ said...
Congradulations Sarah...

from the beautiful state of Colorado.

You have now entered the fold of Wolves in lambs clothing. I pray for wisdom and strength for you and your family in this worthy cause.
Mountain Mama said...
Dunn was so very LAME! I kept yelling, "FOX! Get her OFF the screen!"

President Bush, via Dana P., just congratulated McCain for picking Palin, a true reformer. GREAT!
mommy zabs said...
Love her!
uppitywoman08 said...
Congratulations! A boatload of Democratic women are about to help her win too!
TrueRedHead said...
You can ALMOST feel sorry for the O campaign spokespersons. Trying so hard to make this a non-issue and failing miserably. They keep inserting foot in mouth with the "part-time mayor of a city of less than 10,000". Rave on, dem-folks. You're not helping your cause at all.
Night Owl said...
Do we know when exactly she was told?
Susan said...
Congratulations, O Faithful Ones!! We who were clueless thank you for your passionate championing of this fabulous lady...I had heard a little bit about her but didn't think she had a chance in hell....but the Lord works in mysterious ways! As a disillusioned California MCClintock Republican, I had given up on having a ticket I could support, let alone have any enthusiasm about. But ol' Johnny pulled my vote out of the trash today, and turned it into the magic Golden Ticket! I will have to call all my Alaskan relatives (in Kodiak, Homer, & Kenai)to congratulate them. And yes, America, they ARE called SNOW MACHINES. !!!!! Keep up the good work!!!
Jonathan said...
As Rush has said this morning "Babies, Guns, and Jesus!"
Go McCain / Palin!
Mike said...
This is great!
I've never heard of her before, but I'm so excited there's someone who I can support and trust, she's the antithesis of Biden. someone who has real values, and more importantly...stands by them.
TKD Momma said...
Hey everyone, go over to townhall.com and you'll see Adam enjoying his 15 minutes of fame.
UGottaBKidding said...
I feel the need to first rush to the nearest toilet, and then to find a Friday-nigh stand-up club where I can laugh my butt off while all the political satirists rip this duo to shreds! I've been reading the blog comments all over the internet -- even the people in Alaska can't stand her. Mel Baker said, "I predict a landslide for McCain/Palin!!!" Me, too -- right off the side of a very steep cliff and directly to the bottom of the ocean! More Republicans running (or, rather, ruining) this country? God help us all!!!
Susan said...
Uhhh...when I said "O Faithful Ones", I was NOT referring to the Empty Suit guy...I promise never to use the letter O in a sentence again, lest I am mistaken for a D Troll...!!!!

And congrats again, all of you with the foresight and vision and chutzpah to call it right from waay back when.

Now THIS gives ME HOPE!!

(Never thought I'd be a McCain fan, but actually, I'll be a PALIN Fan from now on!!!)
George said...
Is this the best candidate we can offer our citizens? A moose hunter with a degree in journalism who was mayor of a town of 5,000 and governor of a state of 700,000?
Mikelo22 said...
Ugottabekidding,

Yes, it is perfectly obvious that everyone in Alaska hates her...with her 80-90% approval rating and all.

Tell me, what is the Democratic-controlled Congress' approval rating?

18%. That's right, 18%.

Go spew your liberal propaganda elsewhere.
George said...
I am so disappointed. We go from an republican administration bereft of an intellectual to a slate of similarly challenged candidates.

Is a moose hunter with a degree in journalism who was mayor of a town of 5,000 and governor of a state of 700,000 the best we can do?
Joe said...
George, keep ripping on small town folks like you are doing. You and the rest of the liberal elite will play right into the hands of the McCain/Palin ticket.
Byron Harvey said...
Thank you for introducing me, a few months ago, to a woman of whom I'd never heard, Sarah Palin. Initially skeptical, I came out for her in early June, and I'm ecstatic right now. Go, Sarah, go!
Mountain Mama said...
Oh, George.....c'mon, write elsewhere. We're busy celebrating, and you're busy being a jerk.
sundowniest said...
Bravo! Ask Mrs. Palin to keep wearing her glasses! She's NORMAL.

From a conservative (former Upstate New Yorker) is who_n_ tired of lib-dems..
Sean Peck said...
Obama campaign will find her a difficult target and will look like a bully as they already do after their first weak attack. She will crush Biden in the debates they wont see her coming. everyone is fired up, no Obama speach coverage or review. Excellent strategy. She just has to go into attack mode now.
Health Freak said...
Democrats are attacking her lack of experience. How stupid can they be. They realize that Palin has more experience than Obama. don't they? I heard a nice tid bit of info. Someone said that as a governor they made more decisions in 1 month than they did as a senator in two years. While Plain was a mayor, Obama was a community organizer...PLEASE..The Dems are desperate.
TrueRedHead said...
How cool is this? Slate gives Adam full credit for Sarah's nomination.

Thank you John McCain for making the BEST choice in running mate!

How awesome that McCain staff have been reading this blog all along!!
jri111 said...
Wow! what a great day!

I love how the left is making the "experience" argument, do they really want to there?! Obama has less experience then Plain, AND Obama is the top of the ticket!


I gotta tell you though, it was a long night of waiting. Coffee is going to be my best friend today!
DPCPastor said...
Everyone go to all the news comment pages and do not let them get away with the no expereince crap. Keep selling Palin just like we have been. She has as much expereince in elected office as Oboma and her's is as an executive. We have won a major battle but the war continues till November!
Craig said...
I tried to contribute on johnmccain.com but the server has crashed.
TrueRedHead said...
It was just mentioned (By Liz Trotta) on FOX, how McCain is going to be a "target" for the MSM now. They are OT happy about being bamboozled by this masterful move.
Craig said...
Little noticed but included in the McCain press release is that Gov. Palin is already a Commander In Chief: As governor she is the head of the Alaska National Guard. The ANG is on the front lines 50 miles from an angry Bear that just invaded the small country of Georgia. Combined, in their entire careers, Obama and Biden have probably commanded a total of 100 office workers. I'd say that makes her a lot more qualified on day one than either Obama or Biden.
God is prolife said...
God, Babies, Family Values & Class!! Go McCain/Palin!!
Jenny said...
Who do you think is going to take care of baby Trig, who has special needs, now that his mother will be so busy????
Mountain Mama said...
Oh, for heaven's sake!
Palin has been taking Trig to the office with her now all the time!
Joe said...
I would bet that Palin will be making more than one serious swing through Pennsylvania, and will be highly popular, likely winning the state for McCain.

When doing so, I seriously hope she will consider taking a bit of time to make some campaign stops in Upstate New York, where there are Alaskan connections (William Seward's house in Auburn), and the Seneca Falls Women's Rights hall of fame.

Hillary Clinton is highly popular upstate, and yet this area is really at its core conservative. I am confident that she could make a serious dent in Obama's lead in this state, by attracting Hillary voters. If nothing else this would create the need for Obama to spend valuable resources here.
TrueRedHead said...
Oh Jenny, would you have said that if a MALE candidate had a special needs child? NOT a good idea to go there!
Charles said...
Sarah Palin is a great leader. She has cleaned house in the last 2 years as our governor and has given us hope for our furture. I think she will make a great VP. I was hanging on who to vote for until this decision was made. Go McCain and Palin!!!!!!!!!
Scholar said...
"For the first time in years, I am proud of my party."
Erin said...
Okay, just had a chat with a friend who is so liberal, she would vote Green if she thought they would win. She LOVES the pick, and while she's not going to change her vote from BO, she said it's the first time in years that she won't be gutted if Republicans take it.

GREAT NEWS!!! Palin is reaching across so many barriers. She COMPLETELY stole BO's thunder from his speech, and now she's making one of the most liberal people I know give the party a second look (Jenn's exact words).

I'm still in shock over the pick, and I still can't stop praising Adam's vision and courage to keep this going. I agree; without him and faithful bloggers like him, this wouldn't have happened. The leak started here with Drew because of what has been accomplished by this site.

This is an excellent choice and for the first time in this campaign, I'm extremely excited about McCain and especially Palin. In fact, I now intend to donate.

What was great about seeing McCain introduce Palin this morning was that he really BELIEVES what he is saying about her being a reformer, stands up to special interests and corruption, etc. He did not just pick her for Hillary voters. She brings so much more to the table than just being a woman.

Gov. Palin:

As a Cook County Commissioner and Republican Committeeman in Orland Township, Illinois, and a woman with a similar background to your own, I want to congratulate you on being named the Vice Presidential running mate for John McCain.

I had the opportunity to meet Sen. McCain in Chicago as various function through his Illinois Coordinator and Chairman of the Illinois Delegation to the Nominating Convention, Jim Durkin.

Sen. McCain is an impressive and highly qualified candidate for President of the United States and now we have an impressive and highly qualified candidate for Vice President of the United States.

As a Republican Committeeman and the only Republican elected official in Cook County, Illinois, I will do everything possible to support and work for the team of McCain/Palin and make sure you are our next Vice President of the United States.

Today is a proud day for Republicans, for woman and for the United States of America and I am exceedingly proud of our ticket.

Congratulations and Good luck.
UGottaBKidding said...
Aw, c'mon ... all this blather about "more experience" - "less experience." What it boils down to is that it takes more than one person or "dynamic duo" to run the country, and everyone knows that the figureheads are just that. So, do you want more of the ridiculous right-wingers who don't have a clue in their heads about how horrible everything has become over the last 8 years, who've dragged this country's reputation through the mud and then blind-eyed everything that happened, who make those of us who have brains question where the sanity has gone? WAKE UP, YOU IDIOTS! Go ahead, try to convince me that the Bush administration has done good things and that this country is better off now! Take a good, hard look at where we were, where we are, and where you want us to go. I'm not jumping on THIS turnip truck! You're all loco!!!!
Andrea said...
I don't know if you have heard, but Bush is not running for President this year. John McCain is running. A different guy.
Messiah Truth said...
McCain has done a great service to America by choosing Sarah Palin. Sarah is America's Margaret Thatcher. Even Maggie Thatcher did not have experience to lead Great Britain. A woman who is a great mother, sporty, who loves Jesus, who loves America etc.,. The Hussein campaign is terrified by this - I am sure.

You sure did. I think she will put us over the top.

I'm sorry. I've read your posts and comments over the past week and a half and I'm a little confused. I have a serious question for all of you out there in la-la land. Think about it before you respond: Do you guys REALLY believe that this person has what it takes to run this country in the event something happens to a President McCain? I mean, seriously, one of the strongest points on her resume is that she was runner-up Miss Alaska. This would of course mean that if the actual Miss Alaska was unable to complete her term as Miss Alaska, Sarah would have taken over. Thank God nothing happened to the crowned Queen, but it leaves us wondering whether Ms Palin could actually have stepped in and performed her duties.

I actually have a second question, kind of a follow-up: What in the world are you smoking? I want some.

Obama supporters - you only look even more sexist when you belittle Palin's accomplishments. P.S. She is governer of Alaska, right now. I love how all the Obama talking points refer to her as aformer mayor, former beauty queen, etc. SHE HAS A PRETTY BIG CURRENT JOB.

The question stands: CAN SHE RUN THIS COUNTRY? I don't care if she is the governor of a state (for less than 2 years),the president of a major corporation, an attorney, a sanitation engineer or a stay-home parent, DOES SHE HAVE THE QUALIFICATIONS TO LEAD THIS COUNTRY? And there is nothing "sexist" in that question. It is a legitimate concern that those of us NOT in la-la land have.
