Palin Thinks Natural Gas Will Help With Global Warming

In a move that vindicates my view that when it comes to policy positions Sarah Palin is substantively little more than a McCain clone she declared today that we need to reduce green house gases. Sure her attitude and focus are certainly different but when you boil it down they have always been twins on policy… well at least since the election started. You see back before she was picked to be McCain’s running mate Palin was wishy washy on the global warming hysteria at one point she fought against the Bush administration’s idiotic plan to put polar bears on

Sad News: Palin Didn’t snub Oprah According to Aid

Despite the whiny insinuations of Oprah an aid of Alaska Governor Sarah Palin has denied that she is purposely snubbing the crybaby day time host. From CNN: Sarah Palin’s camp is denying claims she’s is snubbing talk show host Oprah Winfrey, telling CNN Monday the decision was “nothing personal” — the Alaska governor has just been flooded with so many media requests she simply hasn’t had the time to sit down with the daytime talk show icon. “The governor was invited to appear. She was also invited to appear on Letterman, Leno, Stephanopoulos, The Daily Show. She passed on a

Oprah: Palin Snubbed Me

In an interview with “Extra” Oprah stated the following: “I said I would be happy to talk to Sarah Palin when the election was over… I went and tried to talk to Sarah Palin and instead she talked to Greta [Van Susteren]. She talked to Matt [Lauer]. She talked to Larry [King]. But she didn’t talk to me.” Gosh I hope Oprah’s little whinny insinuation is true. I really really hope that Sarah Palin did purposely snub her. I guess the golden rule still rings true huh Oprah? Do unto others as you would have done unto you.

Palin Staying in the Spotlight, Back on the Campaign Trail

Sarah Palin will be campaigning for Saxby Chambliss on Sunday and throughout next week in Georgia. Sarah’s massive popularity in Georgia should give Chambliss’ run-off campaign an energy boost. And while Palin isn’t the only big name Republican to turn out for Chambliss, others include Huckabee, Romney, and McCain, she is most certainly the brightest star at this point. With a close race against Democrat Jim Martin on his hands Chambliss can certainly use all the support he can get. Hopefully this, coupled with the lack of Obama voters for Martin, will put Chambliss over the top. We shall see…

Sarah Palin did not misstate what a VP does

Here’s the answer that Sarah Palin gave to a third grader who asked what it is that the Vice President does: Embedded video from <a href=”http://www.cnn.com/video” mce_href=”http://www.cnn.com/video”>CNN Video</a> And Here’s the specific part CNN was interested in: “They’re in charge of the United States Senate. So, if they want to, they can really get in there with the senators and make a lot of good policy changes.” Here’s the title of the CNN story (as it appears on CNN.com) regarding her comments: “Palin misstates VP role” Now, I’m no constitutional law expert but luckily for me the constitution is written

Video from Sarah Palin on SNL

Here it is in all its mediocre glory: Personally I think it was decently funny, the Mark Wahlberg cameo was actually the funniest part in my mind, but it could have been much better. They easily could have done a skit where Palin spoofs Fey and it would have been far funnier. I mean they had Palin there and they barely had her involved in anything… it was a below average night for SNL, something that is more and more common these days. Here is the other Mark Wahlberg skit that was far more hilarious than either of the Sarah

Obama wants to “spread the wealth around”

So, yea, I’m sure everybody already figured that out but I’m just as sure that nobody expected him to just outright say it… Here’s the story. This won’t be good for Obama because it is a short soundbite friendly gaffe. I don’t know how far this story will go but at least its a plus McCain-Palin. (Reaction from Malkin and Hotair) FINALLY UPDATE: A spreadable butter based ideology (Hat tip: Malkin) THE PLUMBER IS NOT HAPPY UPDATE: Just to echo Allah, Joe Wurzelbacher needs to be in a McCain ad NOW. JOE WURZELBACHER FOR PRESIDENT? UPDATE: Malkin seems to think

Obama Youth take two

This time it’s more militant: httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rUEQz5dltmI As if the last one wasn’t Hitler-youth-y enough… (Ed Morrissey disagrees) Here’s some food for thought: “He alone, who owns the youth, gains the future” -Adolf Hitler HOLY CRAP UPDATE: You know… it’s one thing for miss guided supporters to start pawning off their kids to Obama but it’s something entirely different for a presidential campaign to actively try and recruit kids as campaign tools. But honestly this Kids for Obama initiative goes beyond that to pure indoctrination on a level that terrifies me. Read the latest on Kids for Obama

Don’t they get that image is… well, everything?

Seriously. What was one of Sarah Palin’s aides thinking when they described her two day trip to Arizona in order to prepare for her upcoming showdown with Joe Biden as “Debate Camp”. The same genius also referred to Sarah Palin as “SP”, I mean come on… what is this aide thinking? Are they trying to make her look less ready to lead? When you have a candidate whose biggest criticisms are that they are too young and inexperienced how can you refer to them in such an informal way when talking to the media? If you want to refute those
