Sarah Palin without Powder or Makeup

Sarah Palin (2011)

Sarah Palin (born February 11, 1964) has an unchartered, uncharted history of deception, dizziness, and draconian designs that she has imparted to her brood with the blessing of the former First Dude of Alaska.  Her ultimate triumph is her 16-year-old daughter Willow Palin (born 1995) who continues her family’s tawdry tradition of guzzled-down booze bottles, lacing her conversations with profanities and homophobic hysterics, while insisting on hushed-up police investigations of her antics and misdemeanors such as buying marijuana: “18-year-old Lance Nezaticky, a former classmate of Willow’s, told Life & Style magazine how he watched Sarah Palin’s 16-year-old daughter take part in a drug transaction in a deserted Target parking lot in her hometown of Wasilla, Alaska, around 1 a.m. on a December night last year. Imran Chaudhry, now 19, claims he saw Willow swigging from a bottle of liquor at a house party on October 25, 2009.  ‘I saw her drinking from a bottle of Monarch,’ he said. ‘She was chugging it pretty hard’ ” (read: http://www.showbizspy.com/article/219156/willow-palin-in-drugs-and-booze-shocker.html and http://wonkette.com/430772/willow-palin-buys-drugs-in-target-parking-lot and http://ohnotheydidnt.livejournal.com/53754663.html).  

Willow Palin

It is reported by numerous sources that: “Willow Palin and her allegedly no-goodnik [sic] friends allegedly broke into an empty house and partied like it was allegedly 1999, causing more than $20,000 in alleged damage to the house which was allegedly on the market”.  This occurred while Sarah was traipsing around the country mainlining narcissism to feed her junkie’s addiction to attention, and there has never been a word from the former governor of Alaska about the incident nor any record that the Palins paid for the damage of their younger daughter who has created a record of disrespecting the property and personal rights of other people, especially in their home town and state of Alaska (see Anchorage Daily News September 4, 2008 at http://community.adn.com/adn/node/130532).  At the same time, daughter Willow Palin was breaking into and vandalizing houses to host booze and sex parties (http://www.zimbio.com/Willow+Palin/articles/iwTGcU7B7mn/WILLOW+PALIN+DRUGS+BOOZE+SHOCKER+Hot+News).  Willow, like Track, has been a constant fixture and on a regular basis on the police radar in Alaska with notices sent to various communities where the erstwhile daughter and her friends would party with careless abandonment(http://www.newshounds.us/2010/03/30/palins_politics_of_personal_responsibility_in_tatters_daughter_willow_avoids_criminal_charges.php

Bristol Palin and Willow Palin Facebook page

Willow referred to one classmate as “so gay” and “such a faggot.”  Willow’s homophobia is shown here:

Willow Palin's homophobic rants on Facebook

She later demanded that the student “quit talkin [sic] shit about my family” while threading a tart tantrum against another as a “low life loser” and lashed out at multiple others, writing, “Sorry that all you guys are jealous of my families success and you guys aren’t goin [sic] to go anywhere with your lives” (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/11/16/willow-palin-facebook-posts_n_784585.html).  When Sarah Palin wrote about Willow’s pejoratives and attacks on others, she said nothing.  Instead of apologizing for having raised a bigoted, hateful child, Palin defended her daughter’s use of the deeply wounding words and lashed out at those objecting to its manifest hatefulness.  Not only does Palin defend cruel and unnecessary bigotry but Sarah does not hesitated to endorse candidates who very actively wish to roll back what precious little progress society has made towards giving LGBT Americans full legal equality.  Instead, as one way to limit LGBT births and those of other minorities, Sarah preached for abstinence, and rejected explicit sexual education in schools in Alaska.  Later she would question how her own daughter Bristol became pregnant since Bristol grew up in a Christian household that held that sex did not occur before marriage.  Only when Bristol released bits from an autobiography Not Afraid of Life: My Journey So Far did the daughter admit that she went on a camping trip with Levi Johnson and several of his male companions, got so drunk that she passed out, and awakened to find that she had sex with him during her stupor–during which time one of her eggs was fertilized and began its evolution to becoming a zygote that developed into a fetus and was ultimately born as a son whom the family would name Tripp  (http://news.yahoo.com/s/dailycaller/20110619/pl_dailycaller/bristolpalinlostvirginityduringdrunkenmoment;_ylt=ArkA1044xUV3Rgy8aHO4Wfi9IxIF;_ylu=X3oDMTRmN200bGkzBGFzc2V0A2RhaWx5Y2FsbGVyLzIwMTEwNjE5L2JyaXN0b2xwYWxpbmxvc3R2aXJnaW5pdHlkdXJpbmdkcnVua2VubW9tZW50BGNjb2RlA3RvcGdtcHRvcDIwMHBvb2wEY3BvcwMxBHBvcwMxBHNlYwN5bl90b3Bfc3RvcmllcwRzbGsDYnJpc3RvbHBhbGlu).

Concern is not only with Willow but also her older daughter Bristol.  Neither shows signs of any real education or even a mastery of the English language (http://www.zimbio.com/Willow+Palin/articles/q7h15aqCPGp/Willow+Palin+Poor+Grammar+More+Shocking+Homophobia that includes clips from the Palins’ Facebook pages).  

Willow’s knowledge of correct English grammar and its crown jewel (spelling) is as lacking as her mother’s command of basic vocabulary and pronunciation in most cases, but it does match that of her unwed sister Bristol who had a bastard child born out-of-wedlock.  Bristol Palin, who delights in defining herself as a born-again Christian, took aim at another person named Jon, by writing on her Facebook: “You’ll be as successful as my baby daddy.  And [sic: you cannot start a sentence with a conjunction, and there is no situation, even for emphasis, where it is permitted. The misuse is found only in vulgar (street) English] actually I do work my ass off.  I’ve been a single mom for the last two years [by participating in ‘Dancing with Stars’ and other celebrity take-offs” (http://www.tmz.com/2010/11/16/sarah-palin-willow-palin-homophobic-slur-facebook-attack-sarah-palins-alaska-dancing-with-the-stars-tlc/).  As for being a “hard worker” her main debut into the field of work was dancing on television.  Her dancing did not meet with much success, and actually led one Florida viewer to shoot his television.

Levi Johnson in Playboy magazine (did not marry Bristol Palin)

The baby’s father, Levi Johnson, who posed nude for Playgirl, with some photographic shots being more appropriate for a nudist magazine than for a general public periodical—but the photographic spread did sell copies.  Not only did Playgirl make a nice profit by publishing the photographs, but Levi had an instant adoring audience.  With this, he was able to be more candid about his sexual relationship with Bristol and her family and the pressure that they pressed upon him to marry their daughter.  Levi Johnson, who saw all sides of Sarah Palin including those that he claimed were pathetic and without merit, openly opined that Sarah is totally unfit to be President of the USA at any time (http://www.tmz.com/2010/11/02/levi-johnston-sarah-palin-not-qualified-for-president-bristol-palin-election-obama/). After baring all for Playgirl, Johnson decided to enter politics in the same manner and in the same city (Wasilla) as did Sarah Palin (http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-503544_162-20014470-503544.html and http://abcnews.go.com/Entertainment/levi-johnston-run-mayor-wasilla-alaska-sarah-palin/story?id=11366066 with more traditional and family centered photography).

As various commentators have noted, Sarah Palin spends a lot of time talking about being a mother is so profoundly at odds with the time she spends actually being one.  Her nondescript e-mails only note that her husband, Todd, spent most of the time looking after the children since he had a cushy political plum job that let him take time off to be with them or go salmon fishing (http://news.yahoo.com/s/ac/20110613/pl_ac/8623389_sarah_palin_emails_contain_little_new_insight_on_her_past and her bumpy ride with the Alaska Republican delegation to Congress is detailed at http://articles.latimes.com/2011/jun/11/nation/la-na-palin-emails-20110611).

Sarah’s determination to carelessly ignore her family, when not carefully exploiting them, has become an inspiration to self-absorbed public figures forced to do damage control photo-ops everywhere, such as Representative Weiner of New York (whom she condemned for sending nude photos of his crotch to women, but made no mention of US Senator David Vitter of Louisiana buying prostitutes on a weekly basis, and in Louisiana frequently, paying up to $300 an hour to “have someone to talk with” (cf. http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,288868,00.html) from his US Senate office building or cheating on his wife). When she is away from your lakeside mansion or new home in Arizona, she says absolutely anything to get attention or dollars (http://malialitman.wordpress.com/2010/05/25/sarah-palins-quest-for-wealth-superceeds-the-importance-of-education/).

Palin disturbed that "In God We Trust" was moved to edge of coins

With the incoming Obama Administration, Sarah saw conspiracies everywhere, including at the Department of the Mint when she noticed that new coins were being pressed with the slogan “In God We Trust” being moved to the edge of the coins and expressed that she was “disturbed” by such an action as if the movement demeaned the message or that the movement was a conspiracy or government plot to overturn religion in the USA and had the USA government over to atheists and various non-believers.

A strong racist, with an especial fear of Asians, as her father recounted (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2009/12/06/palins-father-she-left-ha_n_381724.html):

Palin, though notoriously ill-traveled outside the United States, did journey far to the first of the four colleges she attended, in Hawaii. She and a friend who went with her lasted only one semester. “Hawaii was a little too perfect,” Palin writes. “Perpetual sunshine isn’t necessarily conducive to serious academics for eighteen-year-old Alaska girls.” Perhaps not. But Palin’s father, Chuck Heath, gave a different account to Conroy and Walshe. According to him, the presence of so many Asians and Pacific Islanders made her uncomfortable: “They were a minority type thing and it wasn’t glamorous, so she came home.” In any case, Palin reports that she much preferred her last stop, the University of Idaho, “because it was much like Alaska yet still ‘Outside.’ ”

Palin’s bigotry is seldom highlighted (http://www.politicususa.com/en/palin-bigoted-racist, and http://antiracistmusings.wordpress.com/2009/12/06/sarah-palins-got-a-fear-of-asians/).   She refused to meet with blacks, Asians and Latinos.  It is now public record that on the one occasion when she finally did meet with black leaders, and they communicated to her their distress that she included not a single African-American person on her staff, she told them that she did not have to employ any and did not intend to.  

Sarah snubbed and insulted the African-American community, and indeed, all decent Americans, in other very significant ways.  As Ronald V. Myers, Sr. put it, for example, “Juneteenth is an official state holiday observance in Alaska which requires the Governor to issue an annual proclamation.  Despite the statute, Gov. Palin did not issue a Juneteenth Proclamation in 2007.”  Note that Palin very deliberately did not acknowledge the holiday celebrating the end of slavery in America, but that she did as governor record a greeting for the Alaska Independence Party (AIP), a secessionist group with white supremacist leanings and is an extreme right-wing party that is opposed not only to racial minorities but argues against any rights for Black people. The AIP claims that Palin was a member and expressed her opposition to Black people (read: http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2008/09/02/politics/animal/main4407224.shtml; Sarah Palin addressed the AIP here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZwvPNXYrIyI; its neo-Nazi “state’s rights” is at http://www.akip.org/; read more at http://coloradoprocessserver.blogspot.com/2009/11/sarah-palin-rejects-juneteenth.html).

Tea Party racists

A strong Tea Party supporter who has won their hearts and votes, Sarah Palin has called all those who denounce Tea Party actions as tantamount to those of the Third Reich’s Nazi movement “liars.” Republican Tea Party protestors yelled “nigger” at Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.) and also disrespected Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-Mo.) in various ways, including, allegedly, by spitting on him.  Without naming either of the two abused congressmen, Palin states outright in her book that they lied about the incidents.  Cleaver released a statement confirming the incident, but some questioned his claims. Fox News personality Sean Hannity asked (video at http://mediamatters.org/mmtv/201003240072) if there was any evidence proving that it had actually happened, and Tea Party groups offered a cash reward for proof (http://illinoisreview.typepad.com/illinoisreview/2010/03/tea-party-groups-offer-15k-reward-for-spitting-incident-proof.html).   Here is the proof: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/03/28/congressman-spit-on-by-te_n_516300.html

Instead of talking about issues affecting the homeless, those unemployed or underemployed, those unable to afford an education, and those critically or terminally ill, Palin talks about “the family” and ignores her own family and the Down Syndrome child she claims was a personal letter from God (that Palin wrote: http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/washington/2011/06/sarah-palin-god-letter-trig-down-syndrome.html) and is her own—although the pregnancy she kept secret from her husband and other children for no less than seven months.  — one right after the other, your rehab-ready children went absolutely feral  — whooping it up off at unchaperoned parties — and snorting it up off of powdery coffee tables. You know they say: There’s always a little less snow in Alaska when the Palin kids come through town.

Sarah Palin's Book Tour bus in Grand Rapids MI

The greatest tragedy is that Sarah Palin continues to use tax-payer money for personal pursuits.  This became clear when she began her tour of national historic sites—which required full park ranger protection and a host of other attendants funded by the US Government—which no other governor has ever received.  This caused one Congressman to question the expense, since US national park funding is being cut by the Tea Bag Party in Congress (http://blogs.abcnews.com/thenote/2011/06/congressman-launches-inquiry-into-cost-of-sarah-palins-tour-.html). No where in the Constitution or in any federal law are there provisions for a losing candidate to have federal protection.  This was available only when Palin was declared to be the official GOP/Tea Party candidate for the Vice Presidency in 2008.

Both throughout her campaign in 2008 and her tour in 2011, Sarah has preached “family values” and the need to “keep” the USA “under god”—but the laws of her god are rather clear about what can or cannot be done.  Adultery is forbidden, yet there is evidence that Sarah has not always been faithful to Todd.   There are reports (although not all are fully documented or analyzed), that Sarah engaged in premarital sex with her future husband, and also had extramarital sex (http://gawker.com/5045218/palin-had-affair-says-enquirer) with his business partner.  How’s that slutty/trashy thing working out for ya? (http://www.youtube.com////watch?v=Z5af1oTOkU)  Now there are stories how Sarah’s husband, Todd, has a sexual relationship with a massage therapist named Shailey Tripp, although supporting evidence for the allegation is slim (http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/6251814/todd_palin_sex_scandal_not_a_legitimate.html?cat=49 and http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/6247596/todd_palin_affair_and_sex_scandal_alleged.html?cat=62).  

A firm fundamentalist, Sarah Palin is decidedly against any separation of the Christian church and the nation, and would rule as if she were Martin Luther or Adolf Hitler.  She has come out in her latest book attacking John F. Kennedy’s remarks in the 1960 speech to the Greater Houston Ministerial Association, in which he challenged the ministers – and the country – to judge him, a Catholic presidential candidate, by his views rather than his faith. “Contrary to common newspaper usage, I am not the Catholic candidate for president,” Kennedy said. “I am the Democratic Party’s candidate for president who happens also to be a Catholic.”  As Kathleen Kennedy Townsend noted, Palin finds JFK’s speech “defensive . . . in tone and content” and is upset that Kennedy, rather than presenting a reconciliation of his private faith and his public role, had instead offered an “unequivocal divorce of the two.”  Townsend wrote: “My uncle urged that religion be private, removed from politics, because he feared that making faith an arena for public contention would lead American politics into ill-disguised religious warfare, with candidates tempted to use faith to manipulate voters and demean their opponents” Townsend continued: “As a contrast to Kennedy’s speech, Palin cites former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney’s remarks during the 2008 Republican primary campaign, in which he spoke publicly of “how my own faith would inform my presidency, if I were elected.” After paying lip service to the separation of church and state, Romney condemned unnamed enemies “intent on establishing a new religion in America – the religion of secularism.” “There is one fundamental question about which I am often asked,” Romney said. “What do I believe about Jesus Christ?” Romney, of course, is a Mormon. He answered the question, proclaiming that “Jesus Christ is the son of God.” That means that if the voter or American citizen was not a Christian, but a Buddhist, Jew, Muslim, follower of Confucius, Wiccan, agnostic, atheist, or other form of expression then that individual would have no role and no rights in the USA (http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/12/03/AR2010120303209.html).

Baptized as a Roman Catholic but joining in her teen years the Assemblies of God religion, Palin today attends different churches and does not consider herself a Pentecostal.  Like Michele Bachmann a staunch follower of Martin Luther and the Lutheran church as defined by Adolf Hitler, Palin believes her candidacy was determined by her God, and she must submit as would any Muslim to the divine will (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/01/10/steve-schmidt-palin-belie_n_417977.html).  Like any Jihadist who see the Koran as the only word of God (Allah), Palin believes that USA law must be based on the literal word of the Christian Bible and the Ten Commandments from the Hebrew Bible, and is convinced that the forefathers were all Christian fundamentalists who intended to create a Christian nation (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/05/10/sarah-palin-american-law_n_569922.html). Her words match those roared by Der Führer of Nazi Germany, Adolf Hitler who declared himself to be a Christian and to be doing the work of God as being divinely appointed by the God of the Bible as proclaimed by Martin Luther.  Hitler’s anti-Semitism grew out of his Christian education.  Austria and Germany were majorly Christian during his time and they held the belief that Jews were an inferior status to Aryan Christians.  The Christians blamed the Jews for the killing of Jesus.  Jewish hatred did not actually spring from Hitler; it came from the preaching of Catholic priests and Protestant ministers throughout Germany for hundreds of years.  

On the Jews and their Lies by Martin Luther (Wittenberg 1543) foundation for Hitler

The Protestant leader, Martin Luther, himself, held a livid hatred for Jews and their Jewish religion.  In his book, Von den Jüden und jren Lügen (“On the Jews and their Lies”), Luther set the standard for Jewish hatred in Protestant Germany up until World War 2.  Hitler expressed a great admiration for Martin Luther constantly quoting his works and beliefs. Hitler said: “We were convinced that the people needs and requires this faith.  We have therefore undertaken the fight against the atheistic movement, and that not merely with a few theoretical declarations: we have stamped it out.” — Adolf Hitler, in a speech in Berlin on 24 October 1933.  Later, Hitler declared: “My feelings as a Christian point me to my Lord and Savior as a fighter.  It points me to the man who once in loneliness, surrounded by a few followers, recognized these Jews for what they were and summoned men to fight against them and who, God’s truth!  was greatest not as a sufferer but as a fighter.  In boundless love as a Christian and as a man I read through the passage which tells us how the Lord at last rose in His might and seized the scourge to drive out of the Temple the brood of vipers and adders.  How terrific was His fight for the world against the Jewish poison.  To-day, after two thousand years, with deepest emotion I recognize more profoundly than ever before the fact that it was for this that He had to shed His blood upon the Cross.  As a Christian I have no duty to allow my self to be cheated, but I have the duty to be a fighter for truth and justice…  And if there is anything which could demonstrate that we are acting rightly it is the distress that daily grows. For as a Christian I have also a duty to my own people.”  –Adolf Hitler, in a speech on 12 April 1922 (Norman H. Baynes, ed.  The Speeches of Adolf Hitler, April 1922-August 1939, Vol. 1 of 2, pp. 19-20, Oxford University Press, 1942).

Track Palin, son of Sarah and Todd Palin, was required to join military to avoid prison

Sarah Palin bragged at the GOP convention and afterwards about her eldest son, Track, was proudly serving in the USA military.  She made a public statement on her role as the mother of a soldier by wearing a one-star flag pin on her blouse or coat.  While such a paternal act is laudable, it does not give the reason why Track is “serving” his country now.  The reason is easy to prove, for Track Palin was served in high school with a criminal warrant!  (http://frontiersman.com/articles/2005/12/06/news/news2.txt)  Track Palin has a long and hard record of being a boisterous delinquent; he was such an agitator that he was shipped off to Iraq to get criminal charges dropped after he stole a bottle of vodka from a liquor store and vandalized 44 school buses, cutting the brakes on your neighbor’s kid’s ride to school (http://www.dailykos.com/story/2008/09/10/593089/-Breaking:-Track-Palins-2-year-addiction-to-Oxycontincocaine! and which references the National Enquirer as does http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/1039038/national_enquirer_claims_sarah_palins.html?cat=9).    

Track was never a war hero; at best he was hailed as a war hero during the Republican National Convention, but in truth, as many have noted, Track is actually an Oxycontin-snorting, womanizing, kleptomaniac! Some excuse that, claiming that Track Palin “Maybe … was just high from all that cocaine and Oxycontin he snorted” (read: http://www.radaronline.com/exclusives/2008/09/meet-track-palin-drug-addict.php) After all, what child needs healthcare when his backpack’s a pharmacy?

Alaska State Troopers arrested four teenage boys at their Mat-Su homes Monday after they were charged in last week’s vandalism of 44 Mat-Su school buses – an incident that forced the Mat-Su Borough School District to close schools for a day on Nov. 29. Deryck Harris, 18, and the other three boys – ages 16, 17 and 17 – were each charged with third-degree criminal mischief, first-degree criminal trespass and conspiracy to commit criminal mischief, troopers said. The 16-year-old, Track Palin son of Sarah Palin, was also charged with fourth-degree theft and furnishing alcohol to a minor, for allegedly stealing a bottle of vodka from the liquor store at Tesoro 2-Go in Wasilla. (http://frontiersman.com/articles/2005/12/06/news/news2.txt and http://www.kinyradio.com/juneaunews/archives/week_of_12-05-05/juneau_news_12-05-05.html). Two years later, to get a lighter sentence, Deryck Harris, who was arrested at his home, claimed that Track was not involved–but Track still went into the military.

Bristol Palin dancing

Both Sarah and daughter Bristol have publicly declared their endorsement and support for an abstinence only agenda for teenagers and those not married. Neither believe in nor argue for unbridled sex education, and like Nancy Reagan, assume that a female can “just say no” and that will curb any male hormones that in overdrive.  Yet, as most people have learned both the former governor and her daughter were engaged in sex before marriage, so neither entered the state of marriage as virgins (see: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vtcm9R-J3Bk).   In fact, Sarah Palin allowed her daughter Bristol to share her share a bed in the Palin house with Levi’s Johnson. One gossip wag questioned: “What did Sarah due, once the convention was over?  You shipped the little vixen off to live with a relative, or claim she was transferred to another school, lest her harlotry interfere with your ambitions — or reveal that the only thing Sarah really believes in abstaining from is parenting.”   

There has been speculation about the child allegedly born to Sarah Palin when she returned from giving a speech on energy in Texas. Facts do not point to the assumption, as after Sarah’s water broke (even though no one thought she was pregnant until after the seventh month) in a troubled pregnancy the part-time (records only show her tenure in office to be two years and seven months as the job, she told supporters, just did not pay enough), Palin leisurely gave a speech in Texas to an energy forum and then schlepped around in a cramped airplane for 9 hours with no doctor present (source: http://www.star-telegram.com/state_news/story/876326.html; Palin claimed “I wasn’t showing too much” is why no one knew she was pregnant including those on the aircraft, at http://online.wsj.com/article/SB122002615833483595.html?mod=googlenews_wsj).  Palin claimed while at the conference in Texas, she called her doctor in Wasilla / Palmer from Texas, to report that she was leaking amniotic fluid and having contractions that were different from contractions she’d been having for “months.” (Contractions no one among her office staff noticed, by the way; All medical professionals agree:  If a woman is leaking amniotic fluid and having contractions, she is in labor.)  According to Palin doctor agreed with her decision to return to Alaska.  She then gave a “luncheon” speech (as per the official state of Alaska website), took two separate flights, one from Dallas to Seattle and the second from Seattle to Anchorage, then drove approximately one hour from Anchorage to a small (39 bed) regional hospital to give birth (Read http://www.palindeception.com/subpages/subpage4.html; and, also read: http://www.gambling911.com/politics/sarah-palin-flew-more-3000-after-water-broke-082908.html and http://www.opednews.com/articles/Sarah-Palin-and-the-Closed-by-Barbara-Bellows-Te-080831-733.htmlwhich question’s McCain’s vetting [she was back in her office within three days {the birth took place on Friday and the offices are closed over the weekend} but with her other child, Piper, she was back at work the day after giving birth). 

Bristol Palin accident ticket

There is another strange incident in Alaska records, and that concerns her daughter Bristol.   Bristol Palin was transferred out of Wasilla High School last fall (i.e., fall of 2007) according to the assistant principal and supposedly transferred to Anchorage High.  There is no record of this transfer,  but rumors have been everywhere that she never actually attended Anchorage, but was instead out of school with mono for a time span corresponding to the last five months of her mother’s pregnancy.  What is known is that during this time, she was involved in an automobile accident on February 8, 2008.  Here’s the description of the accident.   According to several bloggers, this is the exact location of a Family Medicine Center in Wasilla. The young man involved has stated that he did not notice one way or another whether she was pregnant. However, given the speculation that she may have been (and was due in mid-May) she would have been around 25 weeks as of this point. A first time mother at 25 weeks wearing heavy winter clothing may not have been visibly pregnant.  Yet it was not until the seventh month of Sarah’s alleged pregnancy that she began to show any sign of being pregnant–a matter that became more pronounced when her water allegedly broke before she gave her speech in Texas and then flew back to Alaska to give birth to a baby boy on April 18, 2008.  As one commentary (Betty Bowers) noted: “Honestly, for someone supposedly pro-life, I’ve seen crack whores show more convincing concern for the health of their unborn!”   

Sarah Palin claims that she is fully versed on USA history and American civics and political science, but incites packs of fulminating, semi-literate racists to vote with ammo, is the darling of the Tea Party, KKK, and American Nazi groups but does not have the ability to run an ordinary house (she leaves that task to husband Todd), and has no knowledge of the history or management of the White House.         

(L-R) John Bitney, Shannyn Moore, Anne Kilkenny, Andrew Halcro

Concerning Sarah Palin’s administrative ability and government experience, Anne Kilkenny, a native of Sarah’s hometown in Alaska, wrote:

Her experience is as mayor of a city with a population of about 5,000 (at the time), and less than 2 years as governor of a state with about 670,000 residents.

During her mayoral administration most of the actual work of running this small city was turned over to an administrator. She had been pushed to hire this administrator by party power-brokers after she had gotten herself into some trouble over precipitous firings which had given rise to a recall campaign (read: http://washingtonindependent.com/3671/the-reform-candidate).


Sarah campaigned in Wasilla as a “fiscal conservative”. During her 6 years as Mayor, she increased general government expenditures by over 33%. During those same 6 years the amount of taxes collected by the City increased by 38%. This was during a period of low inflation (1996-2002). She reduced progressive property taxes and increased a regressive sales tax which taxed even food. The tax cuts that she promoted benefited large corporate property owners way more than they benefited residents.

The huge increases in tax revenues during her mayoral administration weren’t enough to fund everything on her wish list though; borrowed money was needed, too. She inherited a city with zero debt, but left it with indebtedness of over $22 million. What did Mayor Palin encourage the voters to borrow money for? Was it the infrastructure that she said she supported? The sewage treatment plant that the city lacked? or a
new library? No. $1m for a park. $15m-plus for construction of a multi-use sports complex which she rushed through to build on a piece of property that the City didn’t even have [a] clear title to, that was still in litigation 7 yrs later–to the delight of the lawyers involved! The sports complex itself is a nice addition to the community but a huge money pit, not the profit-generator she claimed it would be. She also supported bonds for $5.5m for road projects that could have been done in 5-7 yrs without any borrowing.

While Mayor, City Hall was extensively remodeled and her office redecorated more than once.

These are small numbers, but Wasilla is a very small city.

In this time of record state revenues and budget surpluses, she recommended that the state borrow/bond for road projects, even while she proposed distribution of surplus state revenues: spend today’s surplus, borrow for needs.

She’s not very tolerant of divergent opinions or open to outside ideas or compromise. As Mayor, she fought ideas that weren’t generated by her or her staff. Ideas weren’t evaluated on their merits, but on the basis of who proposed them.

Sarah Palin attempted to censor the city library and remove Huckleberry Finn and other books she considered to be offensive

While Sarah was Mayor of Wasilla she tried to fire our highly respected City Librarian because the Librarian refused to consider removing from the library some books that Sarah wanted removed. City residents rallied to the defense of the City Librarian and against Palin’s attempt at out-and-out censorship, so Palin backed down and withdrew her termination letter. People who fought her attempt to oust the Librarian are on her enemies list to this day.

Sarah complained about the “old boy’s club” when she first ran for Mayor, so what did she bring Wasilla? A new set of “old boys”. Palin fired most of the experienced staff she inherited. At the City and as Governor she hired or elevated new, inexperienced, obscure people, creating a staff totally dependent on her for their jobs and eternally grateful and fiercely loyal–loyal to the point of abusing their power to further her personal agenda, as she has acknowledged happened in the case of pressuring the State’s top cop (see below).

Mike Wooten is Sarah Palin's ex-brother-in-law and the focus of an ethics investigation into Sarah Palin. Palin allegedly insisted that Mike Wooten get fired after he split with her sister.

As Mayor, Sarah fired Wasilla’s Police Chief because he “intimidated” her, she told the press. As Governor, her recent firing of Alaska’s top cop has the ring of familiarity about it. He served at her pleasure and she had every legal right to fire him, but it’s pretty clear that an important factor in her decision to fire him was because he wouldn’t fire her sister’s ex-husband, a State Trooper. Under investigation for abuse of power, she has had to admit that more than 2 dozen contacts were made between her staff and family to the person that she later fired, pressuring him to fire her ex-brother-in-law. She tried to replace the man she fired with a man who she knew had been reprimanded for sexual harassment; when this caused a public furor, she withdrew her support.

She has bitten the hand of every person who extended theirs to her in help. The City Council person who personally escorted her around town introducing her to voters when she first ran for Wasilla City Council became one of her first targets when she was later elected Mayor. Her election was about fear-mongering and truth distortion.  Anti-abortion fliers circulated. Ms. Palin played up her church work and her membership in the National Rifle Association (http://www.nytimes.com/2008/09/03/us/politics/03wasilla.htm). She abruptly fired her loyal City Administrator; even people who didn’t like the guy were stunned by this ruthlessness.  Fear of retribution has kept all of these people from saying anything publicly about her.

When then-Governor Murkowski was handing out political plums, Sarah got the best, Chair of the Alaska Oil and Gas Conservation Commission: one of the few jobs not in Juneau and one of the best paid. She had no background in oil & gas issues. Within months of scoring this great job which paid $122,400/yr, she was complaining in the press about the high salary. I was told that she hated that job: the commute, the structured hours, and the work.  Sarah became aware that a member of this Commission (who was also the State Chair of the Republican Party) engaged in unethical behavior on the job. In a gutsy move which some undoubtedly cautioned her could be political suicide, Sarah solved all her problems in one fell swoop: got out of the job she hated and garnered gobs of media attention as the patron saint of ethics and as a gutsy fighter against the “old boys’ club” when she dramatically quit, exposing this man’s ethics violations (for which he was fined).

As Mayor, she had her hand stuck out as far as anyone for pork from Senator Ted Stevens. Lately, she has castigated his pork-barrel politics and publicly humiliated him. She only opposed the “bridge to nowhere” after it became clear that it would be unwise not to.

As Governor, she gave the Legislature no direction and budget guidelines, then made a big grandstand display of line-item vetoing projects, calling them pork. Public outcry and further legislative action restored most of these projects–which had been vetoed simply because she was not aware of their importance–but with the unobservant she had gained a reputation as “anti-pork”.

She is solidly Republican: no political maverick. The State party leaders hate her because she has bit them in the back and humiliated them. Other members of the party object to her self-description as a fiscal conservative. Around Wasilla there are people who went to high school with Sarah. They call her “Sarah Barracuda” because of her unbridled ambition and predatory ruthlessness. Before she became so powerful, very ugly stories circulated around town about shenanigans she pulled to be made
point guard on the high school basketball team. When Sarah’s mother-in-law, a highly respected member of the community and experienced manager, ran for Mayor, Sarah refused to endorse her.

As Governor, she stepped outside of the box and put together of package of legislation known as “AGIA” that forced the oil companies to march to the beat of her drum. Like most Alaskans, she favors drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. She has questioned if the loss of sea ice is linked to global warming. She campaigned “as a private citizen” against a state initiative that would have either a) protected salmon streams from pollution from mines, or b) tied up in the courts all mining in the state (depending on who you listen to). She has pushed the State’s lawsuit against the Dept. of the Interior’s decision to list polar bears as threatened species.

McCain is the oldest person to ever run for President; Sarah will be a heartbeat away from being President.  There has to be literally millions of Americans who are more knowledgeable and experienced than she.  However, there’s a lot of people who have underestimated her and are regretting it.


  • “Hockey mom”: true for a few years
  • “PTA mom”: true years ago when her first-born was in elementary school, not since
  • “NRA supporter”: absolutely true
  • social conservative: mixed. Opposes gay marriage, BUT vetoed a bill that would have denied benefits to employees in same-sex relationships (said she did this because it was unconstitutional).
  • pro-creationism: mixed. Supports it, BUT did nothing as Governor to promote it.
  • “Pro-life”: mixed. Knowingly gave birth to a Down’s syndrome baby BUT declined to call a special legislative session on some pro-life legislation
  • “Experienced”: Some high schools have more students than Wasilla has residents. Many cities have more residents than the state of Alaska.
    No legislative experience other than City Council. Little hands-on supervisory or managerial experience; needed help of a city administrator to run town of about 5,000.
  • political maverick: not at all
  • gutsy: absolutely!
  • open & transparent: ??? Good at keeping secrets. Not good at explaining actions.
  • has a developed philosophy of public policy: no
  • “a Greenie”: no. Turned Wasilla into a wasteland of big box stores and disconnected parking lots. Is pro-drilling off-shore and in ANWR.
  • fiscal conservative: not by my definition!
  • pro-infrastructure: No. Promoted a sports complex and park in a city without a sewage treatment plant or storm drainage system. Built streets to early 20th century standards.
  • pro-tax relief: Lowered taxes for businesses, increased tax burden on residents
  • pro-small government: No. Oversaw greatest expansion of city government in Wasilla’s history.
  • pro-labor/pro-union. No. Just because her husband works union doesn’t make her pro-labor. I have seen nothing to support any claim that she is pro-labor/pro-union.

The fact that Sarah Palin has absolutely no knowledge or comprehension about US interests, US military affairs, the US economy, or working people has often been exposed by various media (cf. http://firedoglake.com/2008/09/11/sarah-palins-embarrassing-interview-and-what-it-says-about-mccain/). The fact that Sarah Palin feels she is God’s answer to a troubled nation is a nightmare, for that was the claim of Napoleon, Adolf Hitler, Josef Stalin, Pinochet and Alberto and Keiko Fujimori. Palin is a crazy-quilt of contradictions and believes that she speaks for God.

    At last! An honest, unvarnished expose of this heartless woman! I’ve never understood how anyone could support this bimbo. She’s totally unqualified to hold any office. Women who support her because she happens to be a woman are woefully misdirected.

    Only a few things in life really frighten me: oppressive governments, religious fanatics, and people who think they speak for God and have the right to tell me how to live. Palin definitely qualifies for the last two, and would create the first one if ever elected.

    Thanks, Art, for posting this. Now if we could just get mainstream America to READ it! I’ll certainly do my best to send as many people here as possible.

    The Republicans or others who wish to follow the likes of Sarah Palin and the Koch Tea Party have deranged minds. Sarah has the same mentality of Hitler, no conscience, and the same demand for Money, Power, and Control—Dictator style.

  • Clark Kent  says:

    Sarah Palin wants a smaller less instrusive government and your man Obama is the one making government bigger, trying to control the health industry, controlling the mortage market, controlling interest in two of the big three auto makers. Obama also wants to start a national security force
    “We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.”

    That was you man Obama’s own words, so who sounds more like a dicator now?

    • arthuride  says:

      The founding fathers (Jefferson, Washington, Madison, etc) wanted only a “citizen army”–not a professional army of paid assassins. Even Dwight Eisenhower, a former general and president, declared (January 17, 1961) in his Farewell Address, that the USA and its citizens had only to fear the USA military-industraial complex (http://www.history.com/this-day-in-history/eisenhower-warns-of-the-military-industrial-complex). Your knowledge of the Constitution of the USA and history is extremely weak and short-sighted.

      A dictator, by definition, listens to that which he or she wants to hear. George Bush bought into the lie of Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMDs) and launched the most unholy of all wars with the invasion of Iraq. Because of Bush’s ignorance (as he stated: “Are our children learning?”), the USA has rightfully become the most hated nation on this planet as thousands died (outside of Abu Gharib prison) by paid mercenaries that were hired by the US military, etc. A dictator has no respect for human life, for the environment, for ecological reality–a trademark of the Reagan, HW and W Bush eras–that enriched a few like the nefarious Koch Brothers who bought (twice) the election of Scott Walker and others at the expense of workers.

      Far from being a negative socialist, Obama has striven to make health care universal as more than 40 million people are without health care. Obama has stood firm for universal education, while the Tea Party argues that education are for “those who can afford it.” Obama has argued for a living wage, while Republican loyalists seek to lower what is already substandard, making it impossible for any worker who is not generating more than $8 an hour to live even modestly. I would recommend to you some books on each subject, but I doubt you will afford the time to read them. Thank you for your comment, I will support Obama.
