The more evil succeeds and overwhelms our foreign and domestic policy, our culture, our discourse and the very social fabric of our lives, the clearer it becomes that Palin is the antidote, the answer to fighting this morally bankrupt sewer in which we find ourselves .
The low state of the world is a fact, but so are great Americans who will fight tooth and nail to stop the coup. American is being tested in a way she never has been before. Treason is in power.

Just for knowing, the always entertaining and lunatic Ron Paul said in a Politico piece here:
So the Stan Laurel look-alike Ron Paul is attacking Sarah and her supporters for being "country clubbers." An absolutely absurd comment. I am sure all those Joe Sixpacks are waiting for their golf carts as we speak.
Well, I've done some searching around, and there is zero evidence to indicate that Sarah has ever been a member of a country club. Is there a more down to earth, true grit haimish candidate out there, I ask you? My vlog on Sarah is here.
Ron Paul and his wife Carol are Lifetime Members of the Lake Jackson Country Club. It is located on Highway 332 in between Lake Jackson and Brazoria.
Nothing new here. Ron Paul is a full of shitnik glomming onto Sarah's star just to get a little (any) publicity. She wouldn't be a real frontierswoman, a real American. Her platform of small government, less taxation, individual liberties, energy, national security and good old fashioned American exceptionalism is the cure this sick country needs.
Ron Paul is a never has been. Next!
UPDATE: OT but related:
Delicious factoid: The latest Rasmussen Poll (out today) has Barack Obama leading Sarah Palin (for President) by 48% to 42%. Somehow, I don't ObamaLand was happy to hear those results.

Once again, Palin is on the front page of the Puff ho (the attacks are daily) -- part of the relentless drum beat of the left to destroy this iconic individualist. The mission by objective? Ruin strong leaders on the right. Therefore, more daily pounding on the American psyche to destroy this popular figure.
Today's libel depicts Palin as psychologically fragile, weak, and about to break. As if. That's nerve. Palin is a rock. The Puff Ho, OTOH, is, well ......my kingdom for a look see into Arianna Huffington's medicine cabinet and Birkin bag ..............
It strikes me as pure envy that Arianna Huffington, who did not make it on her own, should undertake such a naked and pathetic campaign to destroy a superior specimen. Huffington was a high priced courtesan when she came to the States from her native Greece, via England. She didn't have to be. She had every advantage. Instead, she sold herself to the highest bidder, selling herself as a beard to a gay husband and getting remunerated for it handsomely.
Palin is everything that carpetbagger isn't. Palin's existence vaporizes the moochers, looters and destroyers like Arianna Huffington. Which is why the Puff Ho's attacks are so vapid, so unhinged, so relentless, so ugly.
She became a Republican when she married the gay Republican, Michael Huffington. Ed Rollins has publicly claimed that she offered to provide him with a prostitute if he would manage her husband's campaign. (The rumor is the prostitute was .......)
She met oil millionaire Michael Huffington, a family friend of the Bushes, at a 1985 party hosted by Ann Getty in San Francisco. The couple were married in 1986 at a wedding paid for by Getty, who had declared that she needed to find Arianna a husband. They moved to Washington, D.C., when he was appointed to serve as Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Negotiations Policy. They later established residency in Santa Barbara, California, in order for him to run in 1992 as a Republican for a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives, which he won by a significant margin. He was a political conservative on most issues. Arianna campaigned for her husband, courting religious conservatives, arguing for smaller government and a reduction in welfare. In 1994 he narrowly lost the race for the U.S. Senate seat from California to incumbent Dianne Feinstein. Arianna and Michael have two daughters: Christina and Isabella.
She took her gay husband's payoff - and started a blog with leftopaths and barely literate Hollywood celebs.
Here's Rollins in RCP 2003:
Every time I see her I can hear Ed Rollins' description of her ringing in my ears. Here is how Rollins, who managed Michael Huffington's 1994 California Senate run, described Arianna and her husband in his book "Bare Knuckles and Back Rooms":Since early July, I'd been working for two of the most unprincipled political creatures I'd ever encountered. One was such a complete cipher he gave empty suits a bad name. But his wife was even worse - a domineering Greek Rasputin determined to ride her husband's wealth to political glory at any cost....
Arianna Huffington had charmed me out of my socks to get me to manage her husband's campaign. But in a few short months, I'd come to realize that she was the most ruthless, unscrupulous, and ambitious person I'd met in thirty years in national politics - not to mention that she sometimes seemed truly pathological.
Could her bio be any more different than Sarah Palin's? Palin is everything this useful idiot is not. She is good, real, honest and smart. She has a solid marriage with a man she adores - healthy marital relations -the glow is unmistakable :)- Huffington married a gay man to give him a beard and she was paid handsomely for it. Sarah builds, Huffington destroys. Sarah is honest, Huffington is dishonest and a vile disinformationalist. Sarah has a fabulous sex life, Arianna has ............. well, I'll refrain here from being cruel.
These two dig each other.
Huffington hates Palin. Remember that. The hatred of the good for being the good. Huffington hates Palin because she is everything the Puff ho ain't. It's that simple.
The Puff Ho has a messy smear blogger devoted to Palin.

Clear thinking Americans see what is happening. The furious coup on America by a radical communist/Islamist -- best illustrated by the usurpation of the Constitution, the bankrupting of our nation, the illegal grab of private wealth, the infiltration of Islamic supremacism, the abandonment of our allies, the weakening of our military -- is stunning.
Sarah Palin sees it, too. Smart, sharp, patriotic, she best represents the majority of Americans. Not the BO hos in the press, not the chattering elites and the Beltway insiders. Americans. There was no way she would stay on as Governor, as she was unable to fulfill her duties. The leftist wing in America had her tied up in bogus lawsuits (all of which she won). She agreed to pay the travel fees for taking her children on one of her trips. Obama should do the same. Those trips to Paris for his two girls. Pay it back. Pay back the $100,000 it cost taxpayers for his "date" in New York. Pay it back. Pay for those ridiculous $100 steaks. Pigs at the trough. Not Palin.
The hypocrisy knows no bounds.
We want Palin. I heard Michael Steele say on FOX today that she would not run in 2012. Steele is a suit. He speaks for no one. The GOP won't even back Lt. Colonel Allen West. He (nor the GOP) will pick our candidate. Palin is going to help us win back the House/Senate by campaigning and working for candidates in that fight in 2010. And we, the good, decent folks in America, are going to help her win the White House 2012.
We need her. She knows it. She is heeding our call. Is she a hack like Obama and going to campaign on the taxpayers' dime, as he did as a junior senator when he ran for President? No. Extraordinary? Yes. But so is integrity, ethics and decency. The left is calling her a "quitter". Just the opposite, my friends. Just a fighter, a winner. And she is getting into the fight. Baruch hashem!
The American Revolution has its leader.

As such, it is not completely crazy for Palin want to free herself from the time and travel constraints imposed by her gubernatorial commitments in Alaska. A month ago, Chris Cillizza outlined the logistical reasons why Palin would want to "take a pass" on a second term (resigning now is another story, of course). She has a big base and time is a resource. With more time to travel and speak, she would be able to build a grassroots army as Obama did.

This beauty is Shannyn Moore, Puff Ho libel blogger.
The notoriously left wing LA Times reports that the FBI reports that there is is "absolutely no truth" to the lies being spread by force of nature Sarah Palin. Palin scares the malevolent to death. Palin is the silver cross to the Democrats' Dracula.
Palin in a facebook message said yesterday:
"How sad that Washington and the media will never understand; it's about country," the statement said. "And though it's honorable for countless others to leave their positions for a higher calling and without finishing a term, of course we know by now, for some reason a different standard applies for the decisions I make."
"To the extent several websites, most notably liberal Alaska blogger Shannyn Moore, are now claiming as 'fact' that Governor Palin resigned because she is 'under federal investigation' for embezzlement or other criminal wrongdoing, we will be exploring legal options this week to address such defamation," Van Flein said in a statement. "This is to provide notice to Ms. Moore, and those who re-publish the defamation, such as Huffington Post, MSNBC, the New York Times and The Washington Post, that the Palins will not allow them to propagate defamatory material without answering to this in a court of law."
I love her! She is the leader Americans need. She is the leader the tea parties need.
I hope Palin sues just to shut these fat bastids up.
The former GOP vice presidential candidate's surprise resignation as Alaska governor had set off speculation, including rumors of a pending federal corruption probe or charges.
Despite rumors of a looming controversy after the Republican governor's surprise announcement Friday that she would leave office this month, some of them published in the blogosphere, the FBI's Alaska spokesman said the bureau had no investigation into Palin for her activities as governor, as mayor or in any other capacity.
."There is absolutely no truth to those rumors that we're investigating her or getting ready to indict her," Special Agent Eric Gonzalez said in a phone interview Saturday. "It's just not true." He added that there was "no wiggle room" in his comments for any kind of inquiry.

Palin spoke from the heart. She is a natural leader. I unequivocally support her. I have to find the video of her full speech in Alaska today. Here is the official statement from her office: (hat tip Larwyn)
Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin has released her complete remarks announcing she will be stepping down from office; they can be found on her Web site.
People who know me know that besides faith and family, nothing's more important to me than our beloved Alaska. Serving her people is the greatest honor I could imagine.
I want Alaskans to grasp what can be in store for our state. We were purchased as a territory because a member of President Abe Lincoln's cabinet, William Seward, providentially saw in this great land, vast riches, beauty, strategic placement on the globe, and opportunity. He boldly looked "North to the Future". But he endured such ridicule and mocking for his vision for Alaska, remember the adversaries scoffed, calling this "Seward's Folly". Seward withstood such disdain as he chose the uncomfortable, unconventional, but right path to secure Alaska, so Alaska could help secure the United States.
6:40 pm: The diseased and utterly morally left at work again (I talked of this very evil here, earlier this week) - photoshopping Palin family pictures here. Do you believe this represents America? (hat tip Dave)
Bear in mind, this is not the first time they have made fun of and photoshopped Trig. And these are not fringe blogs. These are some of the biggest blogs in the left wing blogosphere. (Wonkette, Tbogg, Firedoglake etc.)
CNN (!) video. I LOVE HUH!
5:00 pm: FOX is running Palin's remarks. They must read Atlas :)
Turn on FOX, decide for yourself. And please, someone vidgrab it!
4:46 pm: Stop the ACLU has rounded up reaction from the right blogosphere. He culled the wrong opinion. They don't get it.
4:30 pm: My take? If Palin is anything like I think she is (know she is), Obama's treasonous presidency is responsible for this. She, like all patriotic Americans, is shocked by what is happening. Obama is destroying this country. She knows it. We all know it. We need a leader. She is answering our call.
She did not quit. She is going to get into the fight to save America. Watch what happens.
4:23 PM: FOX news cut her news conference. 7 days of Michael Jackson and they did not allow us to hear her remarks in full. First Iran, now this.
From what I saw - this is not a woman who is retiring. She is assuming the mantle. This was a campaign speech. She was amazing. I will try to get text or video.
4:09 pm: Liveblogging her announcement........... she is speaking (no teleprompter, how refreshing!) about the sacrifice great Americans have made on this eve of Independence day and what our founding fathers fought and died for.
"I am showing my independence"
She is outlining all of the achievements of her administration.
"living beyond our means today is irresponsible for tomorrow"
"vetoed debt ridden stimulus dollars"
"being right is better than being popular"
She is going after every Obama move without naming him. I have got to get a copy of these remarks.
The ethics legislation she championed was used by an army of political operatives who filed 15 charges against her, draining the public resources. She and her staff spend most of their day on the charges that have been dismissed, incurring over half a million in legal fees. That is not serving the people of Alaska.
The biggest problem today is that people are apathetic. They go with the flow. "Todd and I are fishermen and know only dead fish go with the flow".
This is a great speech.
She believes in and wants to fight for free enterprise, small government, national security .....
FOX NEWS JUST CUT OFF HER SPEECH. WTF???????????????
4:05 pm: The 2012 campaign began today!
3:47 pm: We are waiting for her press conference. There is lots of speculation. I am paying it no mind. In my opinion, it will allow her to spend more time in the lower 48 states without the left accusing her of neglecting her duties as Governor.
Her husband, Todd Palin, said she wants to do things to help the country that she can't do while fulfilling her role as Governor.
UPDATE: Governor Palin is stepping down! We are awaiting her announcement. She is the right's best hope for 2012. She is handing over control to Lt Governor Sean Parnell. He will be sworn in July 25.
I hope the reason is to run. Her country needs her desperately.
It is being reported that Governor Sarah Palin will announce that she will not be running for reelection as Governor of Alaska. Eureka! This is magnificent news. The thrilla from Wasilla! Hope! Change! Seriously.
She has been mercilessly attacked. Brutal, but like water off a duck's back. Those on the right who have suffered the slings and arrows of the vile left smear machine (the depths of which are unthinkable to decent men, here) know that the more they throw, the greater you are. The more vile, disgusting, outrageous the smear, the more envious and afraid you know the destroyers are.
The Democrats and their propaganda machine, the dinosaur media, will continue to attempt to destroy and marginalize this wonder woman. New media better pick up the slack. Jugular for jugular.
The hatred of the good for being the good. That is Palin. I am unmoved by assertions that Palin needs more foreign policy or more this and that. She has the key ingredient to great leadership - common sense. I am not concerned that she won't get up to speed on the nitty gritty details of national and international issues. Her thinking, her epistemology is good.
She has common sense, a moral compass and a very definite understanding of good and evil.
Best of all, she is not a product of the limpwristed, spineless, dickless GOP. She is outside the box. She has grit. She has balls. She is my kind of kishka.

Sarah Palin scares the guts out of RINOs, leftopaths and freedom haters. She embodies all that good and fine and decent, and they vomit. You couldn't have written a more charismatic honorable character in a Victor Hugo novel. They will do anything and say anything to destroy this woman. They are so low, so corrupt .... their depravity continues to shock even the most jaded.
The controversy regarding the Photoshop of Trig by Alaskan blogger Linda Biegel is only the tip of the iceberg. Ever since Sarah's nomination, Trig has been a target. Last fall, the popular DC-based "gossip" website Wonkette joked how Trig must have wished he'd been aborted. Now Wonkette has taken Biegel's Photoshop antics as an excuse to go after Trig anew.
In a recent post, Wonkette promoted and joked about even cruder Photoshops of Trig at the Something Awful web forum, where people can post anonymously (examples below). Wonkette even included one of these photoshops in its post (above right) while mocking Trig as the "New Jesus," "Holy Infant" and "Sacred One."
All the attacks on Trig are Sarah's fault, according to the Wonkette post, since Sarah had the audacity to bring Trig on stage at the Republican National Convention (where the original photo in question was taken), which Wonkette calls using Trig as a "cheap political prop." I guess that makes the Obama kids fair game according to Wonkette since they were brought on stage at the Democratic National Convention.
Sarah is to blame for all the new Photoshops of Trig, according to the Wonkette post, because Sarah complained about Biegel:
Here are two of the milder Photoshops in the Something Awful forum, which are Sarah's fault according to Wonkette:
The Virgin Palin, Our Lady of Eternal Anger, gave birth to the New Jesus at some point last year — or not, who knows, and now Andrew Sullivan just cares about Iran (which is a good thing!) so we’ll never find out the truth — and ever since it has been both a Cardinal/Venial Sin and Sharia Law that no mortal shall “desecrate” an image of the Sacred One … no one but Sarah Palin herself, because Allah both allows and encourages the use of the Holy Infant as a cheap political prop as long as such cruel hackery is performed by the Virgin Palin herself.
Palin’s fury was such, when she found out some blog “on the Internet” had combined a picture of her cradling one of her Magic Babies together with a picture of her Jedi Master, some dingbat old radio talk-show clown in Alaska, that she did verily send her dumbest disciple, “Brother Meg,” to start a Jihad against the Entire Internet.
But we know what happens when a fear-and-anger crazed Snow Witch starts a vain war she can never hope to win: The Internet Strikes Back.
Which is to say, Palin basically poked a stick in the world’s largest beehive filled with cheap & tireless insanity, and the SomethingAwful.com goons have unleashed a pack of Photoshop Dogs From Hell to make the most incredible collection of Sarah Palin Desecration Images in the History of Time, the end.
[Note: Accordingly to one of the commenters, the face imposed on the photo immediately above is that of a convicted sex offender, Brian Peppers, which makes that Photoshop particularly sick.]
UPDATE: Huffington Post blogger Jason Linkins has joined Wonkette in blaming Sarah for the crude Photoshops because Sarah complained and used the word "desecrate":
And now, all of these people that you had heretofore never heard of are famous, because Sarah Palin wouldn't let the stuff slide. Even dumber, she said that the photoshopping was a "desecration," which means she believes Trig had been "divested of her sacred character." Now I think Trig Palin is an awesome kid, but COME ON. That's a really pretentious thing for a parent to say.
Can't the Editors at Wonkette or bloggers at HuffPo check the dictionary? Desecrate has more than one meaning, and is not limited to someone being "divested" of "sacred character." The Merriam-Webster online dictionary includes "to treat disrespectfully, irreverently, or outrageously" in the definition of the term. Sounds right to me. More important, regardless of which words Sarah used, why does that justify attacks on Trig?
As if that weren't terrible enough, Vanity Fair has a hit piece coming out filled with lies and propaganda. Worse, they were aided by the cancerous liberals of the Republican party.
There is a struggle in the Republican party for the heart and soul of our future. The RINOs (McCain, Romney etc. vs true individualists and conservatives). You must get involved in this struggle.
The GOP wants to knock her out, for the same reasons that they don't back the formidable, courageous Lt. Colonel Allen West.
The McCain Campaign was abominable in every way imaginable -- no strategy, low-quality support staff, pathetic fundraising, and a top-of-the-ticket candidate who was more interested in preserving his Beltway status than in winning the election. The low point in the campaign was when McCain essentially told the woman in Wisconsin who "feared" Obama that she had nothing to fear from an Obama presidency.
As a 3-year-speechwriter, I found it obvious that Sarah needed a topflight speechwriter/advisor (Elaine Lafferty would have been fine, and I would have done it for nothing) with her; she had no such person. Biden did. Sarah didn't. McCain clearly resented the fact that Sarah drew huge crowds . . . and he couldn't draw flies.
The GOP is trying to knock her out.
Below is to give you a taste of what is to come. There is a devastating hate piece in Vanity Fair, in what can only be a pathetic attempt at complete and total character assassination.Vanity Fair on Palin: 'It came from Wasilla' - reporter Todd Purdum relies heavily on quotes from unnamed McCain campaign officials.
The same shills that laud Obama for dropping a cool $100,000 on a "dinner and a show with Meesh in NYC, are aghast that Sarah spent $150,000 of donated bucks on her wardrobe for the presidential campaign.
By the time Election Day rolled around, the staff had been serially pummeled by unflattering press reports about the gaps in Palin’s knowledge, her stubborn resistance to direction, and the post-selection spending spree in which she ran up bills of $150,000 on clothes for herself and her family at high-end stores.
The leftopaths have chutzpah!
Todd S. Purdum, Vanity Fair: NY Daily News
"Whatever her political future, the emergence of Sarah Palin raises questions that will not soon go away," Todd Purdum writes in a long piece that ranges from her campaign for governor to her current status as the "sexiest and riskiest brand" in GOP politics. "What does it say about the nature of modern American politics that a public official who often seems proud of what she does not know is not only accepted but applauded? What does her prominence say about the importance of having (or lacking) a record of achievement in public life? Why did so many skilled veterans of the Republican Party-long regarded as the more adroit team in presidential politics-keep loyally working for her election even after they privately realized she was casual about the truth and totally unfit for the vice-presidency?" ...
As Palin makes her way slowly across the crowded ballroom—dressed all in black; no red Naughty Monkey Double Dare pumps tonight—she is stopped every few inches by adoring fans. She passes the press pen, where at least eight television cameras and a passel of reporters and photographers are corralled, and spots a reporter for a local community newspaper getting ready to take a happy snap with his pocket camera. For a split second she stops, pauses, turns her head and shoulders just so, and smiles. She holds the pose until she’s sure the man has his shot and then moves on. A few minutes later, the evening’s nominal keynote speaker, the Republican Party’s national chairman, Michael Steele, who has been reduced to a footnote in the proceedings, introduces the special guest speaker as “the storm that is the honorable governor of the great state of Alaska, Sarah Palin!”
In the aftermath of the November election, the conventional wisdom among Palin’s supporters in the Republican establishment was that she should go home, keep her head down, show that she could govern effectively, and quietly educate herself about foreign and domestic policy with the help of a cadre of experienced advisers. She has done none of this. Rather, she has pursued an erratic course that, for her, may actually represent the closest thing there is to True North. Her first trip to Washington since the election was to attend the dinner of the Alfalfa Club, an elite group of politicians and businesspeople whose sole function is an annual evening in honor of a plant that would “do anything for a drink.” Some of her handlers first said she had accepted—though she then went on to decline—an invitation to speak at the annual June fund-raiser for the congressional Republicans. She created a political-action committee—Sarahpac—with the help of John Coale, a prominent Democratic trial lawyer. But just months into its existence the pac’s chief fund-raiser, Becki Donatelli, a veteran of Republican campaigns, suddenly quit. One person familiar with the situation told me that Donatelli could not stand dealing with Palin’s political spokeswoman in Alaska, Meghan Stapleton, who has drawn withering fire from Palin friends and critics alike for being an ineffective adviser. Also with Coale’s help, Palin formed the grandiosely named Alaska Fund Trust, to defray a reported half million dollars in legal expenses arising from a slew of formal ethics complaints against her in her home state—prompting yet another formal complaint, that the fund itself constitutes an ethical breach. Onetime supporters have become harsh critics. Walter Hickel, 89, a former two-term governor and interior secretary, and the grand old man of Alaska politics, who was co-chair of Palin’s winning gubernatorial campaign, in 2006, now washes his hands of her. He told me simply, “I don’t give a damn what she does.”
Palin is unlike any other national figure in modern American life—neither Anna Nicole Smith nor Margaret Chase Smith but a phenomenon all her own. The clouds of tabloid conflict and controversy that swirl around her and her extended clan—the surprise pregnancies, the two-bit blood feuds, the tawdry in-laws and common-law kin caught selling drugs or poaching game—give her family a singular status in the rogues’ gallery of political relatives. By comparison, Billy Carter, Donald Nixon, and Roger Clinton seem like avatars of circumspection. Palin’s life has sometimes played out like an unholy amalgam of Desperate Housewives and Northern Exposure.
Another aspect of the Palin phenomenon bears examination, even if the mere act of raising it invites intimations of sexism: she is by far the best-looking woman ever to rise to such heights in national politics, the first indisputably fertile female to dare to dance with the big dogs. This pheromonal reality has been a blessing and a curse. It has captivated people who would never have given someone with Palin’s record a second glance if Palin had looked like Susan Boyle. And it has made others reluctant to give her a second chance because she looks like a beauty queen.
Soon Palin will take a crack at her own story: she has signed a book contract for an undisclosed but presumably substantial sum, and has chosen Lynn Vincent, a senior writer at the Christian-conservative World magazine, as co-author of the memoir, which is to be published next year not only by HarperCollins but also in a special edition by Zondervan, the Bible-publishing house, that may include supplemental material on faith. During the presidential campaign, Palin’s deep ignorance about most aspects of foreign and domestic policy provided her with a powerful political reason not to submit to interviews. The forthcoming book adds a powerful commercial reason.
Palin is a cipher by choice. When she chooses to reveal herself, what she reveals is not always the same thing as the truth. Her singular refusal to have in-depth conversations with the national media—even Richard Nixon and Dick Cheney, among the most saturnine political figures in modern American history, each submitted to countless detailed interviews over the years—has compounded the challenge of understanding who she really is. There has been Hollywood talk that Palin could star in a reality-TV show about running Alaska, but nothing has come of it yet. Recently, Palin did star in a week-long seriocomic feud with David Letterman over some of his borderline jokes. Meanwhile, she has begun sharing insights several times a day on Twitter, with chipper reports on her own doings and those of her husband, Todd, and the rest of what she calls the “first family.” “Look forward to today’s staff discussion re: my 3rd justice appt to highest court in 3 yrs. Supreme Court truly effects AK’s future,” reads one. And another: “Picking up my handsome little man to rtrn to Juneau, Trig got 1st haircut so my little hippie baby’s ready for AK sunshine on his shoulders.”
It gets worse. Newbusters had this:
Moving on, Purdum writes:
The top McCain aides who had tried hard to work with Palin—Steve Schmidt, the chief strategist; Nicolle Wallace, the communications ace; and Tucker Eskew, her traveling counselor—were barely on speaking terms with her, and news organizations were reporting that anonymous McCain aides saw Palin as a “diva” and a “whack job.”
This quote, irritating as it is, is merely a setup for a later assertion:
Some top aides worried about her mental state: was it possible that she was experiencing postpartum depression? (Palin’s youngest son was less than six months old.)
One might ignore the jab about being a diva – after all, then-candidate Barack Obama said:
"Like any politician at this level, I've got a healthy ego."
However, quoting anonymous sources to imply that a national political figure may, in fact, have been mentally unstable during a campaign is beyond any stretch of journalistic integrity. And yet, Purdum is not content to smear Palin with the ethereal possibility of postpartum depression:
More than once in my travels in Alaska, people brought up, without prompting, the question of Palin’s extravagant self-regard. Several told me, independently of one another, that they had consulted the definition of “narcissistic personality disorder” in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders—“a pervasive pattern of grandiosity (in fantasy or behavior), need for admiration, and lack of empathy”—and thought it fit her perfectly.
It is amusing to consider the idea that random, unidentified constituents would, unbidden, pick up the copy of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders that they just so happened to have sitting on the bookshelf, and wonder if Sarah Palin suffered from a mental disorder.
For the sake of argument, however, let us simply settle on the fact that failing to identify these people – or their expertise in the field of psychiatric medicine – leaves this paragraph as a near-libelous attack on the mental state of a public figure.

The Palin "webathon" means a lot to me. I love this woman. She is a damn fine woman and a great American. The best. And the liberals know it, which is why they have done everything to destroy her. Bankrupting her is part of it.
"Conservatives4Palin" is running a webathon to help retire the $500,000 in legal debts that Palin has incurred. People can contribute as little as $5.00, but most important spread the word about the webathon. Here is the link for information about the complaints and for contributing:
Sunday, June 14, 2009
The Democrats despise Palin (the hatred of the good for being good), because she best embodies everything they are not. Principled, true, hard working, smart, honorable ............. "the ideal man" (in the Randian sense). I adore Palin, and will work for her candidacy - whatever race she chooses.
Just for knowing, the moochers and the looters are attempting to bankrupt the Palin family with needless litigation costs. She has been cleared of all, but she has to pay her bills -- and unlike the Democrats, we don't rob the public treasury. We guard it. Democrats, OTOH, build John Murtha airports to fly him back and forth to Washington.
Help Palin pay off the legal debt incurred by the harassment and attrition of the dangerous party.
lend me your ears...
As I announced last week on the Tammy Bruce Show, Conservatives4Palin is sponsoring a Webathon to retire the legal debt that Governor Palin amassed while defending herself from frivolous and politically motivated ethics complaints.
To date, all fourteen of these complaints have been dismissed, but in the process of defending herself, Governor Palin amassed over $500,000 in legal debt.
The Alaska Fund Trust is the official Palin legal defense fund. There was limited media attention given to the AFT when it was launched. The attention has tapered off, but Governor Palin's legal debt is still there and is still accumulating as her enemies have regrouped and are looking for new ways to hit her with more frivolous complaints.
The AFT needs our help.
What use is a grassroots movement if we can't take a stand and help Governor Palin when she needs us the most?
Conservatives4Palin will sponsor a Webathon from June 15 – 22, 2009, and we encourage all of you to join us and be an active part.
Here’s how it works...
We created the following “Webathon Banner” which we would like people to post prominently on their websites throughout the week:
Notice the Banner’s four simple instructions.
We are asking people to donate to the AFT and then email us to tell us how much they gave.
We will update the Banner daily to reflect the new numbers raised.
Alongside the Webathon Banner, we would like people to post this video announcing the Webathon:

The systematic leftist smear campaign of Republican leaders is criminal and slanderous. And yet everyone on the right puts up with it in the spirit of what? - free speech? Vile pornographic slander is what it is.
They take our finest people and attempt to destroy them. IT HAS TO STOP. Absent of morality, we must live in a culture where stupidity, anti-Americanism, promiscuity, racism, betrayal, ridicule is heralded. Hollywood personalities, "cultural icons" are in and out of drug addiction centers and applauded for their courage. Music "icons" spew racist bile, degrade women, and denounce America. Debased Democrats defraud the people, perpetrate voter fraud, pay for play, disabuse voters and pat each other on the back - job well done!
They rob, cheat, steal and usurp our Constitution. Democrats with refrigerators full of cash get off scot-free. Presidential candidates cheat on their cancer stricken wives and father children out of wedlock, and the media ignores it while the left yawns. The engineers of the Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac meltdown not only walk away but now oversee the subsequent "solution" - the greatest theft (and generational theft) of the American treasury in world history. Democrat leaders run gay prostitution rings out of their apartments and if we don't like it - we are homophobic.
The leftwing media - now indistinguishable from the Democrat party - call evil good and good evil. They bow to an unfit, unqualified, America hater in the White House - and vilify anyone who points out that the emperor has no clothes.
This is the most disgraceful act of any president in American history. Wahhabism is the most evil religion on earth, a religion of hate which the Saudi king spends billions promoting around the world. To bow to its principal proponent is submission to evil, an announcement of one's true beliefs.
No patriotic American can ever again, upon seeing this picture and understanding its meaning, consider this man to be the legitimate president of his country.
And the media never reported on it.
No one has suffered the libelous slings and arrows more than Sarah Palin. Simply because she represents greatness. Yes, greatness. The better the person, the more debased and vile the attacks. Palin represents the right's best hope. This is hatred of the good for being good. Smart, hardworking, accomplished, clear, rational - every attribute the leftopaths lack. She came up the hard way, married a delicious guy she is crazy about (and he her), and has a wonderful family. And this is what riles the left. They hate normal. Despise it - like Dracula hates the silver cross. Her daughter has suffered unmercifully all because she didn't get an abortion - that's what it's all about. The leftopaths are giving our five year olds sex ed in school, handing out condoms in the hundreds of thousands, and offering abortion without parental consent to underage girls, but Bristol Palin is a bad girl.
The Alinksy inspired leftists need to destroy our most effective leaders. Palin is presidential and I would support her candidacy in a heartbeat in 2012. No RINOs for me - not this time. Any future leader - Palin, Bobby Jindal, Allen West, Michele Bachmann, will be crucified in the press.
Basta! Enough is enough. We must stand up and fight, aggressively.
Over at Conservatives 4 Palin, they are doing something about it. And I intend to join them AND URGE YOU TO DO THE SAME. Go here now. (hat tip vid)
Regular readers here know that we frequently disagree with the slanted journalism at the Anchorage Daily News. The bias appears not only on their editorial page (where even the two "conservative" voices, Dan Fagan and Paul Jenkins, are virulent over-the-top Palin-bashers) but in their news articles. We have no problem calling them out on that regularly, or pointing out such stupidity as linking to Trig Truth blogs, or investigating Trig Palin's parentage themselves.

Oh, sorry about my previous post. I now realize Sarah was busy listening to Levi and Bristol practicing abstinence in the bedroom of HER home. (See Levi's commments @ bedroom) Guess that's why she couldn't read the Stimulus Package.
(I should add that all of the above comments were "recommended" by dozens of other adn.com readers.)
Now, my question to Mr. Dougherty and Ms. Wright would be: How do these types of comments lead to "a relatively free flow of ideas in hopes of stimulating a vigorous conversation about happenings in our state"?
(I should note that that adn.com uses a particularly weaselly method of banning commenters. There is no notification, and to all appearances it seems that you can post comments as normal. However, the comments posted are invisible to all but the banned user. If you're wondering if you've been banned, log in to ADN and post a test comment. Then log out and refresh the page. If your comment isn't visible anymore, then you've been banned.)
So my message to Mr. Dougherty, Ms. Wright, and the rest of the ADN staff is this:
Your promises to clean up the poison at adn.com have turned out to be completely insincere. Enough is enough. No more invective about white trash, hillbillies, methamphetamine or crack cocaine use, or trailer parks. No more snarky comments about the purported sex lives of the Governor or her children, such as statements that the Governor was listening to her daughter "breeding" in her own home. No more insults towards special needs children, or speculation about the parenting skills of the Governor and her husband. No more assertions that the Governor is not the mother of her youngest child. These claims all appear on your website on a regular basis and are deeply offensive to all decent people.
Liberals understand protest and invective. When they're angry at you, they might write nasty letters or show up outside your offices with signs. Conservatives understand business and free enterprise, so we'll just target your Alaskan ad revenue.
Let me be clear about what we'll do. Every time one of the worst examples of these comments appears on adn.com, we won't flag it as offensive. We won't even contact you. Instead, we'll cache that webpage and make screen captures. Then we'll look at the Alaskan advertisers who have purchased space next to these vile comments, and pass the messages along to them with a query as to why they are financially supporting such toxic garbage.
Let's start with a few test cases, who I contacted today with the examples given above. I encourage our readers to do the same. We'll expand our database of advertisers as time goes on.
1. Alaska Communications Systems - externalaffairs@ACSalaska.com
2. Jack White/Vista Real Estate - email@example.com
3. Witzleben Legacy Funeral Home - firstname.lastname@example.org
4. Sixth Avenue Outfitters - email@example.com
5. Shred Alaska - firstname.lastname@example.org
I encourage you to take this seriously. This blog may still be relatively small fry in the blogosphere, though we've quadrupled our readership over the last couple months to several thousand readers per day. If I can motivate only 1% of this blog's readership to get involved, I can put dozens of complaints per day into the inbox of an Anchorage realtor or car dealership. And I won't limit myself to the resources of this site - I'll drag in whatever allies I can, from Team SarahFree Republic. And there are plenty of those people willing to get involved. When you consider that Team Sarah has almost 70,000 members, or that Governor Palin's Facebook page has over half a million followers, you don't want to face the impact if even a tiny percentage of those people get irate with your advertising clients.
Your lawyers and advertising people can explain until they're blue in the face that, due to fine print in your user agreement, the ADN is not legally responsible for slanderous user comments. But you, I, and everyone else knows that you are MORALLY responsible, because this toxic content appears under the banner of the Anchorage Daily News, and right next to space paid for by your advertisers.
A couple of political realities that you should refresh your knowledge on -- despite 7 months of unending savage criticism in the national media, Governor Palin still enjoys the solid approval of over 60% of Alaskans. And even those who disapprove of her are unlikely to be sympathetic to the evil personal attacks that you host on your website. I'd ask you to look even deeper into the subset of Alaskan small business owners who give you the majority of your advertising revenue - do you think they lean more Republican or Democrat? And do you think they like the idea of funding these toxic comments?
Oh, and I forgot to mention - we'll also continually remind the nice folks at McClatchy Corporate of what's going on at your paper. I'm starting with these folks, but hopefully we can expand our mailing list to include others in your corporate hierarchy, especially members of the Board of Directors. And each message will prominently mention, and link, that Pat Dougherty and Julie Wright promised to clean up this problem, but that they still inexplicably allow hate speech to appear under the banner of a McClatchy publication, next to space paid for by McClatchy clients.
We're asking that the ADN follow one of the following options -- either go to a fully-moderated format to ensure that none of this stuff ever appears on your website, or, if you can't do that, follow the example of the Juneau Empire and eliminate reader comments altogether. After all, you already have another discussion forum for readers to exercise their free speech rights.
Mr. Dougherty and Ms. Wright, keep your promises and clean up your website.
Or we'll do it for you.

This is our future -- mighty bright. This is our Margaret Thatcher (can you see the leftard lurkers groan? A figure like Palin is to the left what a silver cross is to a vampire).
After four years of an incompetent socialist, America will throw him the hell out with both hands and the pendulum will swing the other way. Think David Dinkins in NYC (a perfect example of a wildly unqualified failed affirmative action project).

I l-o-v-e this woman. True grit. Baruch HaShem! (hat tip Bruce)
ANCHORAGE, AK [CHI] — Governor of Alaska Sarah Palin lit a candle in memory of the victims of the Mumbai attacks and the Schluchim, Rabbi Gaviel Noach and Rivka Holtzberg, at a public Chanukah celebration of Chabad in Alaska organized by the Rebbe’s Schluchem Rabbi Yosef and Esty Greenberg.
More pictures in the Extended Article!
More than 600 people participated in the 18th annual Chanukah Arts Festival of Chabad in Alaska. The celebration was dedicated to adding light and good deeds of kindness as a response to the Mumbai attack. In addition to the Alaska tradition of lighting a giant ice Menorah for Chanukah; this year a “Cannorah,” a Menorah made of cans, was constructed by an Alaskan artist to be delivered to the needy as an expression of adding goodness and kindness to the world, which was lit by community supporters, David and Shani Green

Nidra Poller who has joined me in my Florida trek to convert the misled Jews on our Great Reverse Shlep has penned (and nailed it) oped on Palin. Fresh from Paris ...... an expat's perspective.

Sarah Palin is not every woman’s Everywoman
Northern Virginia, Southern Florida October 25-29, 2008
[original English version of an article published in Hebrew translation by Makor Rishon]
John McCain’s vice presidential pick was a stroke of strategic genius. The popular Alaska governor, Sarah Palin, looked like the queen that would trump Obama’s knight. More sex appeal than Barack and Michelle combined, more and cuter kids, more spring to her step, more charm and…real executive experience. A track record you could believe in because it is all up front, visible and documented. Obama was attracting swoons from the idol worshippers. Sarah Palin inspired whoops of joy. Go girl go!
Her presence on the ticket was a shot in the arm to McCain, who suddenly began to show his impish smile. Her grace offset the wooden gestures of the war hero and survivor of Vietcong prison camps whose sacrifice earned him no credit in the opposing camp or in the mainstream media, deeply settled in Obama’s pocket since day one of the Democrat primaries. But Sarah Barracuda (her nickname on the basketball court) and self-described hockey Mom announced from the get go that she was not afraid of the media.
Her boldness was like blood to a shark. The media moved in immediately and have been doing a hatchet job that would leave a lesser woman twice dead. Governor Palin is subjected to relentless scrutiny, mockery, sarcasm, and sleaze. It doesn’t faze her. She keeps on stumping, drawing huge enthusiastic crowds at Republican rallies. She conveys the campaign message with convincing candor. She makes TV appearances, including a triumph of good sportsmanship on the Saturday Night Live show, side by side with Tina Fey, the actress who imitates her on the political comedy show. She is interviewed by hostile journalists who frame their questions with the sole intention of showing her up. Palin keeps smiling. Her enemies take this as confirmation of her stupidity.
On the—rather broad—lunatic fringes of Democratic fans, the attacks on Sarah Palin have reached a new low in American politics…and in misogyny, including disgraceful t-shirts reduce her to her sexual organs “Sarah is a c___ .” A mockup of her baby was auctioned on e-bay as a “prop” and, most recently, she was hung in effigy from the eaves of a home in Californian as a Hallowe’en decoration. The first anti-Palin rumor went straight to the womb, with allegations that she was pretending to be the mother of the Down syndrome babe in arms who really belonged to her 17 year-old daughter Bristol. That gossip was rapidly replaced with a new scandal and much clucking over the discovery that the daughter is in fact pregnant, out of wedlock, and intending to marry the father of her child, 18 year-old Levi Johnston.
You would think the entire progressive camp had turned into 19th century Puritans. But no, silly, her sin was not in having sexual relations outside of marriage—everybody does that. Her sin was in not having an abortion. There was no further need to look at Governor Palin’s record as mayor of Wasilia and governor of Alaska. No need to look at McCain’s platform. All you had to do was look at the child-mother’s swelling belly to conclude that Governor Palin is opposed to birth control and abortion. In short, she’s a witch! If the girl had posed nude in a pornographic film or been caught driving while high on drugs it would not have provoked such outrage as her precocious maternity.
The fact that Barack Hussein Obama was born to an unwed seventeen and a half year-old mother was not considered proof of anything. The fact that his father already had a wife and two children in Kenya when he brought his seed to Ann Dunham caused no retroactive scandal. And the fact that if Ann had been as modern and enlightened as progressives require, she would have aborted, and there would be no Obama to worship and elect, seemed not to occur to anyone but me.
French media are more Obamophile and less fair and balanced than the worst of the US brand. The nominally conservative Figaro newspaper is just as one-sided as the leftwing Libération. One would think, from French election coverage, that the U.S. was already an African style dictatorship with one 90% sure-to-win candidate and a pygmy somewhere out in the bush lucky to stay alive before the victory of the President for Life is announced. McCain is virtually nonexistent…except to be panned. The top NY Times slur of the day is picked up and recycled a few days later in France, and so it was with the pro-life scandal of the Palin family. However, a few days into that story, unwed Justice Minister Rachida Dati announced that she is pregnant. I am ashamed to say that I have no inside information about the father of Dati’s child. It may be one of those well-disseminated French secrets that everyone who is anyone knows… for awhile people were saying the father is former Spanish president Aznar…they would make a handsome couple but the rumor has been denied… Nonetheless, no one suggested that the Justice Minister was a wimpess for not having an abortion. But then she is in her forties, so her pregnancy can fall into the trendy category.
On the Left, Sarah Palin is seen as an affront to feminism. On the Right she is held forth as a resounding denial of the doctrinaire ideology of a liberation movement that, we should remember, originated with closet lesbians like Kate Millett who rejected not only male domination but males, threw off not only the chains of uncontrolled fertility but maternity itself. As the movement broadened to include heterosexual women these harsh positions were tempered but, as we see from the hysterical reaction to Palin, it never disappeared. Women in their forties inherited freedoms seized by the bra burners and at the same time uncritically adopted the narrow definition of the Acceptably Liberated Woman. Palin doesn’t make the grade!

I have always said the greatness of the country is the common man. "The individual will save this nation". If history has talk us anything, its that the individual can change the course of human history. Despite Obama's and his cultists contempt, the very idea of America, the birth of this nation was the rights of the individual, not the collective, not the state -- it was ..... Joe.
Nidra gets it too. Although she is an expat living in Paris (fo decades now), she is distinctly American and love her very American perspective from a European perch.
Joe the Plumber, Sarah the Governor, and other common folk
October 19, 2008
The chance encounter between Barack Obama and a commoner—Joe the Plumber—not only exposed the Hope & Change candidate’s plan for redistribution of wealth, it also revealed his attitude toward the ordinary guys he has pledged to serve.
Leftists everywhere love the wretched of the earth…as long as the poor stay poor and the downtrodden downtrodden. As we see by Barack Obama’s reaction to the uppity Ohio plumber, the wretched are supposed to know their place. The Democratic candidate is splurging millions on ads to show how much he’ll do for the working man & woman but the sight of a real guy, who would like to make his way into a higher tax bracket without getting taxed back down to where he came from, threw him off balance. He blurted out his true intention of spreading the wealth around. More like spreading it thin, no?
Senator Obama lectured Joe on the spot, explaining (what do plumbers know?) that his success would be all the more acceptable if those coming up behind him could also succeed. Obama was too heady with ideology and ambition to understand that Joe is that guy coming up behind. Now Obama’s dissing him. “Who ever heard of a plumber that makes 250,000?” Obama’s minions are furious with Joe for tricking their idol into spilling his socialistical beans. They went and dug up the dirt on Joe. “His name is not really Joe,” they hissed. Voters beware: under an Obama administration first names will come first, middle names will stay in the middle, and last will not be least…

Perhaps this is what Palin was talking about while the tittering hyenas yuked it up over this quote:
"And we've got to keep an eye on Russia. For Russia to have exerted such pressure in terms of invading a smaller democratic country, unprovoked, is unacceptable," she told Gibson. Russia invaded Georgia after the ex-Soviet republic invaded the separatist region of South Ossetia.
Palin said she had insights into U.S. relations with Russia because "they're our next-door neighbors, and you can actually see Russia from land here in Alaska ... from an island in Alaska." (more here)
Van wrote me that the Russian long-range Bear recon and bombers would soon be back. Palin's remarks about these flights were ridiculed in the press. Well, here they come and they are armed now. He predicts they will show up in Cuba. They have already flown to Venezuela.
DEBKAfile's military sources report that starting Monday, Tu-160 Blackjack and Tu-95 MS Bear-H strategic bombers will fly missions carrying the maximum combat payload and firing all cruise missiles aboard over sub-Arctic Russia and Belarus, close to Alaska. Moscow is claiming to 18 percent of the oil-rich Arctic's territory.
Palin comes out swinging and starts telling the folks what's at stake here. Why McCain is so damn polite when the very country is at stake confounds me. These are dangerous people and we need a leader, unafraid of the media, unafraid of the leftwing bullies -- we are counting on you McCain and you are failing us.
Palin OTOH is opening up and telling folks what we on the blogs have been reporting for over a year now - Obama's nefarious radical alliances. The media is having a two year old temper tantrum but even the deeply leftarded Rolling Stone agrees. This from February 2007 - thanks to Joe
In the tank for Obama early and often, Rolling Stone was enthralled back then at the thought of Obama, with "as openly radical a background as any significant American political figure has ever emerged from," (p.3) becoming a force for change on the national stage. The reference is to Wright, rather than to Ayers, but the politics are ultimately the same. I bring this up not because the article sheds any new light on Obama, but rather because of its tone. Obama's radicalism was a selling point with which leftist journals like RS were trumpeting just last year and attempting to bury now.
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -Republican vice presidential candidate on Saturday accused Democrat Barack Obama of "palling around with terrorists" because of an association with a former '60s radical, stepping up an effort to portray Obama as unacceptable to American voters.
Palin's reference was to Bill Ayers, one of the founders of the group the Weather Underground. Its members took credit for bombings, including nonfatal explosions at the Pentagon and U.S. Capitol, during the Vietnam War era. Obama, who was a child when the group was active, has denounced Ayers' radical views and activities.
While it is known that Obama and Ayers live in the same Chicago neighborhood, served on a charity board together and had a fleeting political connection, it's a stretch of any reading of the public record to say the pair ever palled around. And it's simply wrong to suggest that they were associated while Ayers was committing terrorist acts.
This is mainsteam media injecting its narrative into a news story.
Falling behind Obama in polls, the Republican campaign plans to make attacks on Obama's character a centerpiece of candidate John McCain's message in the final weeks of the presidential race. Coming late in the campaign, Palin's remark could be particularly incendiary, however, and could knock Obama off his focus on the troubled economy.
Incendiary and true.
Palin told a group of donors at a private airport, "Our opponent ... is someone who sees America, it seems, as being so imperfect, imperfect enough, that he's palling around with terrorists who would target their own country." She also said, "This is not a man who sees America as you see America and as I see America."

That's my take. She was herself. And she's wonderful. Smart, authentic. I dug when she chided that old dinosaur.
I wish she had gone more on the attack more particularly when Biden was blaming Bush/ McCain for the financial meltdown. It was the poisonous fruit of cancerous Democrat government intervention.She missed opportunities to go for the jugular but her performance was exceptional. She seemed perfectly comfortable. She got her shots in.
Biden said, we will end this war.
Palin: “Your plan is a white flag of surrender.”
Calling him on redistribution of wealth. “You said paying higher taxes is patriotic. In the middle-class, where I’m from, that’s not patriotic. You’re the problem.”
She made no mistakes. O'Biden was wrong at least 10 times (Karl Rove just said Biden was absolutely wrong ten times, arguably wrong another six)
She was engaging, warm charming. She feels like family, so I am kvelling :)
He was old, tired robotic .............
UPDATE: FOX TV PHONE POLL: PALIN 86% BIDEN 12%

Check out this shot under the headline Gov. Sarah Palin. When can we expect Obama dick shots? Hillary thigh shots? (perhaps not, they probably didn't want to scare the children.)
Republican White House hopeful John McCain(L) often seems relegated to the background at campaign rallies, where his running mate Sarah Palin(R) generates an electric reception from party faithful.

Palin draws crowd of 60,000 in The Villages hat tip Katherine
THE VILLAGES -- Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin told wildly cheering, flag-waving, chanting supporters that John McCain is "the only great man in this race" and promised Sunday he will fix the nation's economy if voters give the GOP four more years in the White House.

The rally I am attending has invited Palin to THIS RALLY ON THURSDAY 9/25!(it starts at 5:30 pm)
Women United has extended an invitation Governor Sarah Palin, among others, to address a press conference and rally to "Stop Ahmadinejad", taking place in front of the Grand Hyatt Hotel in New York City on Thursday, September 25th protesting a meeting being held at the hotel between Iran's President Ahmadinejad and various organizations wishing to open up with him a dialogue and who appear thereby to be providing tacit legitimacy to the Iranian president's policies.
The crazy thing is the mainstream media keeps excusing this crime by injecting this canard -- perhaps she was using her private email for government business (which she didn't). Whether she did or she didn't is irrelevant. Laws were broken here. The motivation for the crime is not the issue, But it seems if the left deems the motive as legit then any sociopathic leftard will be excused their crime. The Left's propaganda machine is going full speed.
The descent of the left is perfectly exhibited in this outrageous example of skulduggery. The suspect is the son of State Rep. Mike Kernell. ha! (/not)
Jeff over at Protein Wisdom has the story here:
This afternoon, in a thread that was later deleted, an individual claiming to be the original poster gave his account of what happened. I’ve attached screencaps. Here’s the text. The original poster used the name “rubico.” The linked email address for the poster was email@example.com.This is what rubico said:
rubico 09/17/08(Wed)12:57:22 No.85782652
Hello, /b/ as many of you might already know, last night sarah palin’s yahoo was “hacked” and caps were posted on /b/, i am the lurker who did it, and i would like to tell the story.
In the past couple days news had come to light about palin using a yahoo mail account, it was in news stories and such, a thread was started full of newfags trying to do something that would not get this off the ground, for the next 2 hours the acct was locked from password recovery presumably from all this bullshit spamming.
after the password recovery was reenabled, it took seriously 45 mins on wikipedia and google to find the info, Birthday? 15 seconds on wikipedia, zip code? well she had always been from wasilla, and it only has 2 zip codes (thanks online postal service!)
the second was somewhat harder, the question was “where did you meet your spouse?” did some research, and apparently she had eloped with mister palin after college, if youll look on some of the screenshits that I took and other fellow anon have so graciously put on photobucket you will see the google search for “palin eloped” or some such in one of the tabs.
I found out later though more research that they met at high school, so I did variations of that, high, high school, eventually hit on “Wasilla high” I promptly changed the password to popcorn and took a cold shower…
>> rubico 09/17/08(Wed)12:58:04 No.85782727
this is all verifiable if some anal /b/tard wants to think Im a troll, and there isn’t any hard proof to the contrary, but anyone who had followed the thread from the beginning to the 404 will know I probably am not, the picture I posted this topic with is the same one as the original thread.
I read though the emails… ALL OF THEM… before I posted, and what I concluded was anticlimactic, there was nothing there, nothing incriminating, nothing that would derail her campaign as I had hoped, all I saw was personal stuff, some clerical stuff from when she was governor…. And pictures of her family
I then started a topic on /b/, peeps asked for pics or gtfo and I obliged, then it started to get big
Earlier it was just some prank to me, I really wanted to get something incriminating which I was sure there would be, just like all of you anon out there that you think there was some missed opportunity of glory, well there WAS NOTHING, I read everything, every little blackberry confirmation… all the pictures, and there was nothing, and it finally set in, THIS internet was serious business, yes I was behind a proxy, only one, if this shit ever got to the FBI I was fucked, I panicked, i still wanted the stuff out there but I didn’t know how to rapidshit all that stuff, so I posted the pass on /b/, and then promptly deleted everything, and unplugged my internet and just sat there in a comatose state
Then the white knight fucker came along, and did it in for everyone, I trusted /b/ with that email password, I had gotten done what I could do well, then passed the torch , all to be let down by the douchebaggery, good job /b/, this is why we cant have nice things
The “white knight fucker” was the /b/tard who thought that going through Sarah Palin’s email wasn’t cool. He logged in, changed the password, and sent an email to a friend of Palin’s warning her and letting her know the new password. Unfortunately, he then posted a screenshot of this email to let the other /b/tards know their fun was over. He failed to blank the password, and they all tried to log in and change the password — which tripped the automated Yahoo! freeze. Since then, the account has been deleted. “Rapidshit” refers to rapidshare.com — i.e., rubico wanted to download the emails, put them into one file, and put that file up on rapidshare for /b/tards and the world at large to download. But he panicked, or didn’t know how to download the emails, and so pawned that task off on Anonymous, which he didn’t realize wasn’t monolithic and in his favor.
Does this mean that gone are the excuses being trotted out by the mainstream press — and those on the left side of the blogosphere — for running with this pilfered private info? “Clerical stuff” justifies this breach of privacy, and yet these are the same fucks who’ve spent years screeching about data mining communication traffic patterns for terrorists with one point outside the US?
