AMERICANS HAVE A MORE FAVORABLE VIEW OF GOV. PALIN

Posted by PrestoPundit on 08/31/2008

than they have of Joe Biden.  Sort of restores ones faith in the American people, doesn’t it?

Here’s a key finding from the Rasmussen Poll —  right out of the box Sarah Palin is viewed favorably by “80% of Republican women, 23% of Democratic women, and 61% of women not affiliated with either major party.”  Wait till they actually get to know the woman.

QUOTE OF THE DAY

Posted by PrestoPundit on 08/31/2008

From the Michael Bane blog:

while b-HO wants to ban AR-15s; Palin shoots AR-15s, and apparently pretty well.

Every
shooter, every hunter, every gun owner, every competitor needs to
understand that it is time to, in the words of Bruce Willis, “cowboy
the ‘f…’ up.”

JOE BIDEN’S WHITE COLLAR

DAD.  Obama and Biden are the phony bologna twins.  My son’s “Little People” Eddie doll is more genuine than these two.

SARAH PALIN — THE BOOK.

Posted by PrestoPundit on 08/31/2008

Read the first chapter (PDF file).

The hard copy is currently sold out.  The paperback has yet to be offered at Amazon.

Here’s the story of the book and what happened Friday:

A local [Seattle area] publisher is scrambling to fill orders for about 40,000 copies
of the only biography of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, which until Friday
morning had sold just 8,000 copies.

“What a stroke of luck,” said Kent Sturgis, publisher and co-owner of Epicenter Press in Kenmore [Washington].

He had 3,000 copies of the hardback version left on Friday morning,
when Republican presidential candidate John McCain announced Palin as
his running mate.

“We decided right off the bat that we better go ahead and do a
paperback version,” he said. “We were producing copies of this
paperback about 14 hours after the announcement, and they’ll all be
shipped on Tuesday.”

The book had climbed to No. 7 on Amazon’s best-selling-books list by Saturday evening.

Called “Sarah: How a Hockey Mom Turned Alaska’s Political
Establishment Upside Down,”
the biography was Sturgis’ idea. He
recruited Alaska author Kaylene Johnson to write the 160-page book,
which was released in April.

Sturgis met Palin at a Fairbanks fundraiser in 2006, and “boy, she’s
really interesting,” he said. “No matter what you think about her
politics, she’s an interesting and an unusual politician.”

About the author:

Kaylene Johnson is a writer and long-time Alaskan who makes her home on
a small farm outside Wasilla. She enjoys hiking, skiing, and horseback
riding in the backcountry. She is married with two sons and two
grandsons. Her award-winning articles have appeared in Alaskan
Wilderness Discovery Guide, Alaska magazine, the Los Angeles Times,
Spirit magazine, and other publications. She received a BA from Vermont
College and holds an MFA in Writing from Spalding University in
Louisville, Kentucky.

UPDATE:  Sarah Palin through the years — the pictures I’m guessing Sarah Palin doesn’t care if you ever see.

Also this.  Sarah Heath does the sports report:

THE ANTI-PALIN SMEARS KEEP ROLLING IN.

Posted by PrestoPundit on 08/31/2008

 I especially admire the college professors who are out smearing Palin.  A handful of history professors who’ve sent money to Obama are telling reporters that Palin isn’t up to the job of Vice President.  None of this is disclosed to readers.  And professor Alan Wolfe in the New Republic is spreading the outrageous lie that Palin named her kids after witches.  Believe it because it’s true.  If Palin were a private citizen she could own Wolfe’s house, Wolfe car, Wolfe bank account and the New Republic to boot, if she should want them.  I’m guessing she wouldn’t.

UPDATE:  Alan Colmes is joining the smear fest.  I love it when lefties get into peoples personal business.  Shows us who they really are.  And yes, Alan Colmes, babies are born at 8 months, and they aren’t simply tissue to be left to die at that age.  Ask my wife.

UPDATE II:  Protein Wisdom has a Palin smear roundup.  The sad truth is he’s only skimmed the surface of the cesspool that’s out there.

AN INTERVIEW WITH SARAH PALIN’S

Posted by PrestoPundit on 08/31/2008

MOTHER-IN-LAW.  And an endorsement from a mayor who worked with Palin:

“This is a really nice person, and she’s disarming in that way,” said George Carte, 67, a retired geophysicist who was mayor of neighboring Palmer when Palin was mayor of Wasilla.

“I was very impressed with her as mayor,” said Carte. “She did some
housecleaning with her department heads.”

Meanwhile, Palin’s home town of Wasilla, Alaska breaks out with Palin Fever:

Down the highway in the Frontier Mall, Patrick
Carney Jr. said that when he heard the news on television a day before,
“it knocked me flat.” Carney comes from a large Democratic family, but
he’s wavering now.

Brother Mark Carney, who was in high school
with Palin and works unloading freight, said Palin’s addition to the
ticket “changed my vote. I think it’s good taking someone who’s lived
like a common person.”

“She’s highly principled. She may be from the
other party, but she’s very honest,” said their father, Patrick Carney
Sr., a former Democratic state legislator ..

Ed Kalnins, senior pastor of Palin’s Pentecostal church, Assembly of
God, described Palin as tenacious. “Once she understands a truth, she
bites down on it and won’t let go of the truth,” he said ..

But not everyone in town is a fan.

Irl Stambaugh was Wasilla’s first
police chief. When she was on the council, he said, they tussled over
the issue of closing time for bars. He wanted to change closing time
from 5 a.m to 2 a.m., but Palin thought that would infringe on business
owners. When she became mayor, she fired him.

“I think it was a personality conflict,” said Stambaugh.
