I just heard today that the reason she stepped down a Govenor of Alaska is because she plans to move to British Columbia to take advantage of the free healthcare benefits.

I guess raising a brood like that probably adds up!:yes:

The CBC managed to sneak a picture of her a couple of weeks ago while she was scouting out property.

And the fact that he was willing to talk to every other news organization, but (pout) wouldn't grant an interview to FOX news?

Although I do give kudos to the other organizations who refused the interviews unless obama agreed to an interview with FOX.

Hahahaha... Fox is the only channel that is unbiased in its reporting... can't say that for the commentators (that's not their job, they are free to give their opinions), but the news is straight forward. Guess you think Rachel Maddow is unbiased too, lol.

Your right guess you think CBS and Dan Rather running the story on the forged Bush documents was the epitome of integrity.

If MS. Palin comes to Canada, she better hope she doesn't break a leg, what with our crappy health care and all....

WASHINGTON — Marg Delahunty has braved the wilds of the American Midwest to come face-to-face with Sarah Palin.

Comedian Mary Walsh’s beloved character button-holed the former Alaska governor at a recent book-signing in Columbus, Ohio, only to be strong-armed away from Palin by a cabal of security guards.

The action was documented on Tuesday night’s “This Hour Has 22 Minutes,” but four days later, Walsh was still marvelling at her close encounter with one of the most controversial politicians on the planet.

“We told her we’re from Canada, and we’re just looking for a few words of encouragement for the Canadian conservatives who have worked so tirelessly to destroy the socialized medicare that we have,” Walsh recalled Tuesday from St. John’s.

“Four huge big burly guys started pushing, and I pushed back, but I got her attention, and she told us to keep the faith, something like that, and said we’re all trying for the same thing.”

After being kicked out of the book-signing, Walsh and her crew then waited outside at a loading dock close to where Palin’s bus was parked. When Palin emerged from the Borders bookstore, Walsh said, Delahunty — dressed in a more toned-down version of her trademark warrior princess costume — called out to her.

“Hey, remember us, we’re the Canadians! We came all the way here from Canada!” Delahunty yelled. “When we asked you that question, we didn’t hear your answer.”

Palin strolled over, looking down on Walsh and her crew to tell them that “Canada needs to dismantle its public health-care system and allow private enterprise to get involved and turn a profit.”

“Basically, she said government should stop doing the work that private enterprise should do,” Walsh said.

In addition to those comments, Walsh said, she found it equally bizarre that no one was allowed to ask Palin any questions at the book-signing.

“It was great fun, but also very strange,” Walsh recalled.

“We’re in a bookstore, at a public event, in a place one would think was a bastion of free speech. And no one was allowed to ask questions. What are they afraid of?”

Keep her. PLEASE.

Sure I've heard of the Bering Strait. I can also see New Jersey from my hometown in Delaware. I guess that means I'm qualified to run for governor. :rolleyes:

The point wasn't that the statement wasn't true. The point was she thought that her physical proximity to Russia somehow gave her foreign policy experience.

I personally wish she would just take her disingenuous self as well as her dysfunctional family and just fade away.

John G. is 63 years old and owns a small business. He's a
life-long Republican and sees his dream of retiring next
year has all but evaporated. With the stock market crashing
and new taxes coming his way, John assumes now that he will
work to his dying day.

John has a granddaughter. Ashley is a recent college grad.
She drives a flashy hybrid car, wears all the latest
fashions, and loves to go out to nightclubs and restaurants.
Ashley campaigned hard for Barack Obama. After the election
she made sure her grandfather (and all other Republican
family members) received a big I told-you-so earful on how
the world is going to be a much better place now that her
party is taking over.

Having lost both roommates, Ashley recently ran short of cash and
cannot pay the rent (again) on her 3 bedroom townhouse. Like
she has done many times in the past, she e-mailed her
grandfather asking for some financial help.

Here is his reply:

Sweetheart,

I received your request for assistance.

Ashley, you know I love you dearly and I 'm sympathetic
to your financial plight. Unfortunately, times have changed.
With the election of President Obama, your grandmother and I
have had to set forth a bold new economic plan of our
own..."The Ashley Economic Empowerment Plan." Let
me explain.
Your grandmother and I are life-long, wage-earning tax
payers. We have lived a comfortable life, as you know, but
we have never had the fancier things like European
vacations, luxury cars, etc. We have worked hard and were
looking forward to retiring soon. But the plan has changed.
Your president is raising our personal and business taxes
significantly. He says it is so he can give our hard earned
money to other people. Do you know what this means, Ashley?
It means less for us, and we must cut back on many business
and personal expenses.
You know the wonderful receptionist who worked in my office
for more than 23 years? The one who always gave you candy
when you came over to visit? I had to let her go last week.
I can't afford to pay her salary and all of the
government mandated taxes that go with having employees.
Your grandmother will now work 4 days a week to answer
phones, take orders and handle the books. We will be closed
on Fridays and will lose even more income to the Wal-Mart.

I'm also very sorry to report that your cousin Frank
will no longer be working summers in the warehouse. I called
him at school this morning. He already knows about it and
he's upset because he will have to give up skydiving and
his yearly trip to Greenland to
survey the polar bears.

That's just the business side of things. Some personal
economic effects of Obama's new taxation policies
include none other than you. You know very well that over
the years your grandmother and I have given you thousands of
dollars in cash, tuition assistance, food, housing,
clothing, gifts, etc., etc. But by your vote, you have
chosen to help others -- not at your expense -- but at our
expense.

If you need money now sweetheart, I recommend you call
202-456-1111. That is the direct phone number for the White
House. You yourself told me how foolish it is to vote
Republican. You said Mr. Obama is going to be the
People's President, and is going to help every American
live a better life. Based on everything you've told me,
along with all the promises we heard during the campaign,
I'm sure Mr. Obama will be happy to transfer some
stimulus money into your bank account. Have him call me for
the account number which I memorized years ago.

Perhaps you can now understand what I've been saying
all my life: those who vote for a president should consider
the impact on the nation as a whole, and not be just
concerned with what they can get for themselves. What Obama
supporters don't seem to realize is all of the money he
is redistributing to illegal aliens and non-taxpaying
Americans (the so-called "less fortunate") comes
from tax-paying families.

Remember how you told me, "Only the richest of the
rich will be affected"? Well guess what, honey?
Because we own a business, your grandmother and I are now
considered to be the richest of the rich. On paper, it might
look that way, but in the real world, we are far from it.

As you said while campaigning for Obama, some people will
have to carry more of the burden so all of America can
prosper You understand what that means, right? It means that
raising taxes on productive people results in them having
less money; less money for everything, including
granddaughters.

I'm sorry, Ashley, but the well has run dry. The free
lunches are over. I have no money to give you now. So,
congratulations on your choice for "change." For
future reference, I encourage you to try and add up the
total value of the gifts and cash you have received from us,
just since you went off to college, and compare it to what
you expect to get from Mr. Obama over the next 4 (or 8)
years. I have not kept track of it, Ashley. It has all truly
been the gift of our hearts.

Remember, we love you dearly....but from now on you'll
need to call the number mentioned above. Your
"savior" has the money we would have given to you.
Just try and get it from him.

Good luck, sweetheart.

Love,
Grandpa

I'm a die-hard conservative Republican and I was inches from voting for Obama last year because it really wouldn't have been a vote for him but a vote against her as I adore John McCain. I wanted him to win the Republican Primary back in 2000. :(

But since NY goes Democrat in national elections, I knew my vote for McCain wouldn't count anyway. :(

I'm a Delaware native and left before it turned left. Considering your choice of Delaware governors I'd say Howdy Doodie could be governor there and do a better job. Governors Carper, Minner and Markel are just the bottom of the barrel. Minner was taking her raises while the people who worked for the state couldn't get their cost of living increase and now they have a cut in pay, a hiring freeze except for the higher paid professional types. Oh yeah, nice bunch of governors in Delaware, HA!!!

Go ahead and run for governor in Delaware, they have NOTHING to lose. You've chosen probably the worst of the worst to run the state and now into the ground. It makes me sick, it used to be such a lovely state.

CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, NBC, are all on the same liberal page. So possibly yes, moderates/liberals get their news from several different sources, but if they all have the same obama protecting agenda, what is the difference?

She is smart, very attractive, (even after having several children), looks happy with her family, in love with her husband, got to where she is on her own and not with cronyism, nor family name.

Sooooooo, people who are not impressed with Palin, her views, and the things that come out of her mouth during real, life documented interviews are just envious? Don't you think that is a little, ummmmmmm, simplistic?

BTW, you apparently cannot see Russia from where Palin lives. There is an Alaskan land mass in the way. She sees Alaska from her window, not Russia.

I wonder if she had her name on "Google Alert" in which case she will certainly see all this. She is a good sport, indeed, and a richer one since becoming a published author.

Her future: I see it as being a rounder upper of support for the Republican party rather than running for office. She can sure get the followers.

Well, perhaps she should move to Fireside, BC. When we went through there many years ago, we stopped at a tiny little gas station/conv. store. The wife/owner was the mayor, justice of the peace, postmaster, and local law inforcement. :D
Anyway, being from Alaska, Palmer to be exact (down the road from Wasilla), I bet Sarah could win a reality survival show! Alaskans don't really consider themselves part of the Lower 48. After all, we call it "Outide". :winkgrin:
I think she started off fine but went off the rails somewhat due to the pressure to "conform".

Just pointing out the obvious willie...all families have skeleton's or issues not just Palin. The libs are terrified of Palin because she is loaded with common sense of which they woefully lack. Go Sarah and a double bless your heart Willie!

Families may have skeletons or issues (or may not). The fact is however, most people, myself included, aren't running for one of the highest public offices in the world. When you choose to take that on you set yourself up for scrutiny. I know it's a tough concept to understand, but that's the price you pay.

I'm in no way shape or form jealous of Palin. Pretty easy way to dismiss the huge number of people that can't stand her because of who and what she is. About as accurate as me saying Republicans hate Obama because they can't stand the idea of a "N" word in the White house.

Go ahead and run for governor in Delaware, they have NOTHING to lose. You've chosen probably the worst of the worst to run the state and now into the ground. It makes me sick, it used to be such a lovely state.

Kaleigh,
The libs hate Palin because they are afraid of her.
I think many are jealous of her accomplishments and they feel superior by putting her down.

She is smart, very attractive, (even after having several children), looks happy with her family, in love with her husband, got to where she is on her own and not with cronyism, nor family name.

Oh, and has a multi-million dollar book deal. :)
I'd say they are green with envy....

I think this is so funny..

I am smart, I am rather attractive (I've just had a few drinks so even more so) even after having several children, I am happy with my family and I love my husband - no book deal but who knows about the future -

and in no way, shape or form does this qualify me to be the vice-president! Or any other political figure!!! So why would it qualify her?!!!

"tolerance" is not the point. Good horse ideas come from people who can understand the 'big picture' and understand individual horses. Close-minded and one-sided angry political posts often indicate a person who does not understand the 'big picture' and does not understand idividual people.

No, sweetie, "good horse ideas" come from people who have made it their life's work to study The Horse. There is no "big picture" about it.

And in case you haven't noticed, this forum is full of people who wildly proclaim their hatred for most of the human race for not worshiping horses/animals/Gaia like they ought.

But perhaps you will explain how it is OK for people to be angry, denigrating, and spiteful about Palin without jeopardizing their qualifications in the horsey department but anything less than butt-kissing for Zero is verboten and an automatic disqualifier for any and all consideration in any venue?

Allow me to rephrase. People who are dogmatic with people are in my experience dogmatic with horses as well. In other words, they are not very good horse trainers. Or dog trainers. Many think that they are but they can not escape their personality traits. They are fixed in their ideas and are not flexible to the animal's true needs. In my opionion. Perhaps you are an anomaly. I have not yet met a person who is bad with people and who is ACTUALLY good with animals, despite the idea that they think they are. People who treat beings fairly are people who treat beings fairly, usually.

I don't just 'think' I am. I love working with animals, their innocence and the fact that their love is unconditional is something that isn't found in people. At least not adults (not talking about kids here). Where most people have an agenda, animals don't. Except maybe to love you. They're not out to hurt you, cheat you, screw you over, cheat on you..... they may chew the odd Croc (damn dogs :winkgrin: ) but you know what? I can live with that.

Same thing with the horses. Had a very tough day, actually a lot of tough days recently, and the best thing to clear my mind was sitting cross legged beside one of the foals down in his stall. Scritching him and telling him my problems. He didn't solve them all... but he was a very good listener. Sorry, I haven't found that with too many people.

That makes sense. I've always found that people who like animals are usually kind and gentle in their relationships with people. It is a sad commentary when a poster does not like most people.

It is a fact, too, that when people abuse animals, there is bound to be abuse in their families.

Anyway, back to Sarah - that's sure a cute shot by the OP of her on a meese with her party sign. I think she needs one of those brestplate dewlap thingies, that saddle looks like it could keep heading east.

The first time he ran I was young, it was my first opportunity to vote and I listened to a friend, she was wrong and a Democrat so she got one more vote for her candidate, now look at the gaffmaster!

So you are glad I left, LOL. Well my family still lives in Delaware so I'm there often and I have friends there too. Please keep Delawareans in Delaware because we sure don't need them in Chester County to ruin our community too, they are flocking over the state line in droves. Keep your liberals limited to Delaware, we have enough in Pennsylvania. We are trying to hold on to our way of life, we like it as it is.

I do wish that the death sentence was handed down more fairly.

( I believe that they are both "necessary evils.")

However, I think that conservatives need to adhere to the principles of Barry Goldwater, who was always a gentleman. Liberals need to get off the fence and do some good instead of just espousing causes, but not actually going out into the streets and helping out. (I consider myself a radical on some issues, and a conservative on others.)

People need to listen to each other's ideas and consider that they might have some good ideas. An open mind is much better than a closed mind!

Because late term abortions are mostly done for reasons of health. Most are done because the baby has a major abnormality and would not survive, and birth is a major risk. Many of the women who get these wanted and loved their babies.

Maybe take a gander at this:
http://www.aheartbreakingchoice.com/kansasstories.html

While many out there would paint the pro-choice community as babykillers, the truth, as with so many other things, is a lot more than black and white.

Same with the death penalty, which I have very mixed feelings about.

The media has ripped apart her home life, her values, the way she speaks, the way she dresses, her glasses, her kids, her parenting..... she is under fire from everyone from CNN to SNL.

David Letterman anyone? :rolleyes: The bias is incredible and disgusting all at the same time. And applauded by the libs.

In her political career she was impressive. Her values are solid. She has a practical business like way about her. I find that refreshing after all the scumbags in office. She may not have a huge amount of experience but since electing BO that tells me that is not all that important to the American public. Just guessing, though. ;)

I think that people who like Sarah Palin will never understand the opposing point of view - and reduce the opposition to "why are they picking on this nice family lady?!?"

Personally, and I can't speak for the entire news media, my issues have nothing to do with her home life and morals (well, except for some of those she'd like to make into laws that could conceivably effect me). No, I just felt she was a ridiculous choice for VP - very little understanding of foreign affairs or major political issues beyond her favorite buzzwords. When asked questions about substantive issues, she proved to be an adept dodger. When asked about foreign policy, it was clear she knew very little about it (again, beyond buzz phrases that made people cheer but didn't have much actual substance).

From my perspective it was a total headscratcher that someone like McCain would have chosen her and all I could think was that he was sabotaging his own campaign.

Was there some mockery? Sure. And not all of it was fair, I'll grant you that. But what I don't understand is that there ARE women in the Republican party who are articulate, very deeply involved in politics, very up to date on foreign affairs, and super knowledgable. It seems to me like the choice of SP for VP candidate was a slap in the face to them. I felt she was chosen SOLELY to appeal to a certain group of voters, and not because she'd be good at the job.

That she has a lot of children really doesn't have much to do with my opinion of her. I do find her daughter's pregnancy slightly relevent, because SP is such a proponent of abstinence education.

I do give her credit for making hard choices and living with them - I think there are a lot of political women out there, when faced with a teenage daughter's pregnancy, might have just done the old "sshhhh! abortion-don't-tell-anyone" routine (and I think that's true of both sides, regardless of what they publicly say about abortion).

Really? Do a Youtube search for the "joke" that McCain made about Chelsea Clinton when she was still a fairly young teenager.

Or, better yet, Google a few of the things that Rush Limpbough had to say about Chelsea Clinton. Or Hillary Clinton for that matter.

Clinton stayed in the kitchen and continued to put her money where her mouth was, literally. Palin jumped shipped at the first sign of heat and has done nothing but whine about it.

Why can't she just stand up and take responsibility for being unprepared in interviews? Why does she have to point the finger and blame everyone under the sun for her poor performance on a stage that she was not ready for? Gee, buy into the culture of victimization much? Why is it okay for her to point the finger of blame at everyone but herself, but unacceptable for some inner-city black kid to do the same? Can we all say "HYPOCRITE" together on the count of three?

I don't support her because I don't agree with her, simple as that. As a wife and Mother myself, I applaud her choices since they mirror my own so closely. But I don't agree with her on policy issues. It has nothing to do with what she looks like, or how she speaks. I just don't agree with her. I agreed with Ann Richards on policy issues. Why do so many Palin supporters try and make the case against her detractors on such shallow grounds as the way she looks, or how she speaks or the way she lives her life? I mean, don't YOU guys think there is enough substance to her to merit disagreeing on issues?
