What do you think?
Y’all better watch this clip because I had to learn how to embed vimeo just to post it.
I posted this in the thread below but it surprised me enough to do it twice.
I had lunch with one of my Dick voter good liberal Democratic friends today and we talked about the state of the economy and what the government was and wasn’t doing, To my surprise, he wants Sarah to run badly and wants to help get her elected. It has dawned on him that both parties are alike and maybe the only hope we have to change that is a true outsider. For him, she meets that test and I gotta say it seems valid enough to me.
Once she can punch through the media haze to get her actual RECORD in Alaska out there, people like her. A lot.
As a matter of fact, if the McCain campaign had hammered on her record of being a corruption buster looking out for the little guy, they might have won. But the GOP handlers didn’t want that, so they muzzled her. Gee, I wonder why?
In the last emails, this is what she wrote about her criteria for selecting an Attorney General:
I will be appointing an independent, ‘new’ AG who does not have any baggage on any sides of any of the relevant issues facing the legislature. All I have been looking for is a good legal mind, someone totally committed to ethical government, a less-political, unpretentious long-time Alaskan who is free from the influence of any of the ‘more of the same’ circles running in Juneau.
No interest pleading, just looking for the best person.
You never hear of any other politician turning in their own party members and corporations for corruption. That’s one reason they want her out of the race.
Yup. She wanted to bring down the whole “pay to play” business as usual on BOTH sides of the aisle in Alaska. She wanted average citizens in power, not the usual favor-trading.
Politicians have forever been saying they wanted to “clean things up”, by which they usually mean cutting off the gravy train to the other side, so they can have all the gravy to themselves.
Sarah actually meant it.
McCain wasn’t about to talk about corruption because he wouldn’t want anyone to go there.
I want to see the film. The trailer is killer. I don’t agree with Sarah on all things, but damn, the woman is fearless. And I’d have great confidence that she’d soul-search and then do what she thought was both practical and right.
She scares the crap out of them because no one owns her. Having an un-owned person in the WH would be a breath of fresh air.
I remember one rational feminist back in 2008 saying “You can bet Sarah never hesitated to speak up in class.”
Yes. Her mother and father raised her right. I admire them a lot.
“Like a Marine, she runs toward danger” 😀
I have a feeling the GOP would rather see Obama reelected than a President Palin. She’ll smackdown the good ole boys club, you betcha’.
You really didn’t think they were just afraid of her ladyparts, didja?
Although her lady parts are made of steel from what I can tell.
I love this clip:
That was one of my favorites. Thanks.
Hehe, Arthur Silber hits the creative class today.

It’s like John McCain had the freakin’ A-bomb and used it as a damn for a pond in his back yard. His maverick credentials were slipping and I guess his campaign talked him out of picking the worst choice ever of Joe Lieberman by offering a real maverick like Sarah Palin.
It’s kind of funny when people talk about Palin being so right wing. Remember 1992? Bill Clinton’s opponents in the Democratic Party said he was more anti-abortion than they were, that his DLC activities were too conservative and that he was from a backwater state that was dead last in every area of social advancement. Just because you haven’t drunk the anti-Palin Kool aid doesn’t mean you avoided a little of the diet flavor too.
There is a reason why Bill ran as a moderate. Candidates who were perceived as too far left got their clocks cleaned in 1980, 1984 and 1988.
If she runs, I’ll be working for her unless Hillary primaries Obama. (I don’t think she will.) I think it’s more productive than working for a 3rd party candidate, and if she wins, it might be the same result in the long run.
I’ll do the same. While I don’t agree with some of her positions, I do believe she is a person of good faith with a good heart. That will make all the difference in the world.
Well said, Ralph.
She’s authentic—and voters are hungry for that, after plastic Jesus. (did I say that out loud?)
I’ll vote for her, but I will not work for her or any other candidate ever again (except Hillary). What I went through with that disgusting 2008 primary did me in. But, as I said, if Hillary Clinton is somehow in it, I’ll work & vote for her.
Damn. Good clip.
