Perpetually Self-Involved, Politically Abusive Sarah

Gawker dissin' like no other....

If political support were a relationship, Sarah Palin would be a wife beater.

Conservatives rallied around her during last year's presidential election, turning her into a demigod. Despite all the love and attention, Palin continues to let them down.

The Alaska Family Council held an event this evening to bolster support for their latest ballot initiative, which supports a law demanding parents be told if their dirty, sexually active child goes to get an abortion. And, as far as they were concerned, Palin had agreed to headline their event. They were twice told she would attend and were absolutely vibrating with anticipation:

  • We look forward to Governor Palin honoring her commitment to attend, and we appreciate her public support of our effort to pass this important voter initiative to protect the rights of parents and the health of teenage girls.

Sarah Palin is getting the attention she craves. Another "yes she will, no she won't" guessing game.

Christian Science Monitor - Matthew Shaer -
Maybe she’s in Rhode Island. Maybe she’s hanging out with Glenn Beck. Maybe she’s “tasting a nibble of AK’s bounty.” Maybe she’s hiking the Appalachian Trail. Maybe she’s in Kansas with Lynn Jenkins, discussing the GOP’s next “great white hope.”Who knows? At this point, we don’t know where Sarah Palin is.
We only know where Sarah Palin isn't
,
and that's at Changepoint, an Anchorage megachurch.

Sarah Palin cancels again on a speech she claims she was never invited to

OOPS: Mistakes on political donations blamed on software
Crawford said SarahPAC uses election software, similar to TurboTax for income taxes, that walks aides through required disclosures. When they filed the mid-year report to the FEC, no violations were noted, so they thought they had done it correctly.

The FEC wants more information

Palin: The software made me do it.
We still need to find the reason that Palin so abruptly resigned, late on a Friday, before a holiday weekend, without preparing a well-conceived statement. It was far too quick a decision to have been done for benign personal reasons.

Splendor in the Grass

Set in rural Kansas, "Splendor in the Grass" tells the tragically romantic tale of teenagers Deanie and Bud who repress their desires because of their families' disapproval. Coming from radically different backgrounds -- one wealthy, the other staunchly puritanical -- they allow class differences to prevent any possible union. Their passions exist purely in their hearts and minds, but the couple never physically or socially express this forbidden love. Later in life, Deanie is institutionalized following a breakdown, and she eventually returns home to resolve her feelings about Bud.

Splendor in the Grass - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The film's title is taken from a line of William Wordsworth's poem "Ode on Intimations of Immortality from Recollections of Early Childhood":

What though the radiance which was once so bright
Be now for ever taken from my sight,
Though nothing can bring back the hour
Of splendour in the grass, of glory in the flower;
We will grieve not, rather find
Strength in what remains behind...

Will Sarah Palin influence a federal election?

This has got to be the final nail for Palin as far as influencing a federal election. She will always have some comedic use, but the federal election Pac charade is done. The FEC will become another mockery if they allow this despicable Pac to continue. Palin pulls down everything she touches. There are other Palin scams to take serious. It is time for the media to expose Babygate. Why delay it any longer?

Why won't the FEC lay this SarahPac thing to rest? Can't they see her grifter quitter record?

We are aware that attempts have been tried to make Sarah Palin ready for prime time. She has had support from the most famous and thoughtful rebranding agents. It has been a year since she didn't hesitate, it has been a year of going downhill. Can't they see she is epic fail and can never be their robot? She is right about not being wired that way. She must be freed to tweet as only she can.

Three Laws of Robotics
(be sure to click above link. Thank you Isaac Asimov)

A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.

A robot must obey any orders given to it by human beings, except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.

A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law.

Could the FEC prove that Palin's leadership committee, Meg Stapleton, even thinks there is a remote possibility of electing a candidate or for a purpose of influencing a federal election? If she does believe the hype she needs hospitalization along with the quitter. For a hype to be believed perps need a good memory and some degree of competency.

End the agony of neglect and ineptitude beyond the norm.
This whole Pac is about donations. There is no legitimate front person to influence anything except William Shatner's poetry and the like. This Pac does not act like they
believe their own hype. They deserve to wear the orange suits.

In the United States , a Political Action Committee, or PAC, is the name commonly given to a private group, regardless of size, organized to elect political candidates. Legally, what constitutes a "PAC" for purposes of regulation is a matter of state and federal law. Under the Federal Election Campaign Act, an organization becomes a "political committee" by receiving contributions or making expenditures in excess of $1,000 for the purpose of influencing a federal election.

Abortion, Sarah Palin and not ready for her close up

The iron clad rule for Palin to attend a function is that it must have her lawyers approval, Thomas Van Flein (that should tell us something). Meg Stapleton is to tell the Palinistas or "beloved sycophants" when it is positive that she will be there. Two days before the "beloved sycophants" were confident Sarah Palin would sign a petition at the Change Point Megachurch in Anchorage. WTF happened?

Guess what! According to the Anchorage Daily News, Meg said they had never even heard of this speech.

"Palin spokeswoman Meg Stapleton said Wednesday, in response to inquiries from the Daily News about tonight's event, that "this is the first we have ever heard of a speech." She said Palin is out of state and won't be there."

Stapleton declined to provide details on where Palin is and what she is doing.

"All we can do is take people at their word that we've worked with in the past," Minnery said. "We've been working for several weeks on the event, promoting it very heavily. It would be a grave disappointment if she doesn't show up but the show will still go on."

Those much wiser than I on all things "quitty pants" called this one. I must have been living in the fantasy that the surgery had healed enough and with the right photography aids she was ready for her close up.

Meg's statement sends up the flares that things are not going well at all. Meg can only say Palin is out of state, there was no spin about why, where or how grizzly mama she is. Thank you Meg for confirming how deep and drastic the incompetency runs. What a disaster the quitter has on her hands. Do you like having the whole SarahPac charade labeled the LaughingStockPac? Who will take you serious now?

The situations in places like Dillingham and the victim's of the Robert Hales of Anchorage still need attention.

The old wicked witch is dead!

Rebranding is in the works as I type. There is a new photo placement on SarahPac. The last one they removed was a steely cold business suit with that old beehive do she likes.
Can this product, known as Sarah Palin,
escape it's past?

If the next event is any indication, no it can not.
The next show is a repeat of the same old same old.

The new wicked witch is no improvement.

Was the FEC a motivating factor for the workers at old SarahPac? If they want donations they do need a better product. Sarah might even show up for a signing event at Change Point Megachurch in Anchorage. After all, it is a photo op for a new package.

When Church Lady Sarah was allowed to leave the "undisclosed locations" it was for guns, awards and money and now the blatant ignorance and disregard for Alaska's most vulnerable victims. That is a pattern of hers, go after or ignore the defenseless.

The initiative that Palin supports is shallow and does not consider what happens in the family dynamics when incest is involve. Palinistas are among the people that refuse to engage in discussions on health care. She has proved she is not able to speak outside of a narrow venue.
Fat chance there will be any mention of incest victims.

It is all more perplexing because of the dismal record of abuse in Alaska.


In 1993, Alaska ranked 1st in the nation: highest per capita incidence of rape.
Alaska has 6 times the national average of reported child sexual assault.


1 in 4 girls before the age of 12 and 1 in 6 boys before the age of 18 nationally will be sexually assaulted.
Fairbanks Health Center surveyed 419 clients over a 3-week period and found that 24% reported physical abuse in the past 6 months while 39% reported some form of sexual abuse (1995).
In 3 out of 4 reported cases, the victim knew the offender, the most commonly reported type of sexual abuse is a father who commits incest with his daughter--usually the eldest daughter.
As many as 4 out of 5 offenders were sexually assaulted as children.
One-third of incest victims' mothers were sexually abused as children.
Alaska's rape rate is 2.2 times the national average overall.

More Alaskan-based research is needed on risk factors and the complex relationship between domestic violence and child abuse, elder abuse, and domestic violence during pregnancy, as well as its overall prevalence and incidence.

Sarah and Todd, the marriage is swell

and there is merely a minor clean up on isle nine.
Sarah Palin is in the Wasilla area and may debut in Anchorage on Thursday with a wedding ring.

There are indications that:
Sarah Palin is about to come out of hiding?
Palingates: Will Sarah Palin show up?

What's a little negligence with ineptitude beyond the norm?

Gryphen has more to say HERE

Politico: Palin and Huckabee’s groups have opted to report semi-annually

What I really want to know:
has Sarah Palin started to tweet AS PROMISED?


Her Pac team has been working on a face lift for Facebook. There is nothing like a note from the FEC. Her excessive photos have been removed. They have one up so far. No more tabloid baby for Sarah? Business baby?
SarahPac is ALL ABOUT MONEY, a new donation tab makes sense.

Sarah Palin breakdown #19

What kind of breakdown would Sarah Palin do?

She is in über isolation and is not exposed to any media. How else can she stay away from her BlackBerry tweets?

Is this latest MIA part of the reprogramming? NAILINPALINNOW wrote an amazing article HERE. Excellent research on Scientology, John P. Coale and political ambition. Is it possible she is going through rigors of that magnitude? Will the job include surgery? What is the process for someone that exhibited signs of a public meltdown? Where was the last sighting? Does anyone know when she left Wasilla?

There is no twitter world for Sarah, after all the build up and excitement. There is no twitter world and the hope that there will ever be one is dim. She was like a child anticipating Christmas. Except it wasn't Christmas, it was when she would be free to tweet without the worry of being politically correct. "Why? Why? Why? No tweets?" Is the secret cry that can be heard throughout the sea of Sarah fiefdom. It defies logic that she turns her back on her loyalist$.

The Palinistas are acting strange as well. She has let them down and they have no clue. It is not in their program it seems. They are happy (delusional) she isn't actually there but speaks through an unknown voice they call notes.

On another note. Here is the introduction to 13 Ghosts. Notice the cryptic message at about :25
(code for don't ask, don't tell ghostwriters).

REVEALED! SarahPac note writers!!!!

After long torturous hours of research none other than my spirited correspondent is coming through with the face behind the Facebook notes. The ones that a certain someone known as Sarah Palin is claiming to do in her spare time when she is not dressing down moose or small animals to stew, leading Republicans, prepping to be a Newt commentator or caring for her infamous dysfunctional family of Wasilla.

Brokeng news!
The Ghasper Report has eliminated Sarah Palin and Meg Stapleton
as the actual culprits writing that black magical world of salad and lies. They have all the responsibility but they don't come close to writing or thinking.
Not so for
Jackyl! He is definitely a number one contender. This revelation leads to so many others involved with "The Legend of the Death Panels," stolen from Betsy McCaughey.

Ghasper will say no more for now but he did leave a few clues to the other possible ghost writing team members. There is no indication that Sarah Palin is in any condition to help much, if at all.
The world is anxiously waiting for the next face of Sarah
and the mystery of the The Great Twitter Blackout of 2009 to be solved.
Did she really break her promise to her loyalists?


Of course, it is plausible that Meg could still be a conduit in this grand sticky mess of the money generating political action committee and social network note farce or hoax. Déjà vu

Where is Sarah Palin's Diana?


Missing her Mom a terrified 4 year-old enters a house where an armed homeowner encountered serial burglar Diana Palin in the middle of a heist. (Doesn't the Palin family ever notice when someone has a problem?) What a sight that must have been for the police to see a poor child looking for her mother and finding the homeowner Theodore Turcott locked and loaded.


Last April it was news. Now only Sherry Johnston makes the news cycle. What is
happening with Diana Palin?
Allegedly, the child is alright.

Ben Smith of POLITICO wrote about this: The extended Palin clan make Billy Carter and Roger Clinton look like model citizens.A Palin busted for Break and Enter in Wasilla

Diana is the half sister of Todd Mitchell Palin, former shadow governor and Sarah's beloved husband. Aunt Diana is a blood relation (gene pool) to Todd and Sarah's children. Track, Bristol, Willow, Piper and Trig. Diana would also be an aunt to Tripp Johnston, Levi's son and Sherry Johnston's grandson. They are all kin.

Todd and Diana's father is James F. "Jim" Palin of Seattle. He is now married to their stepmother, Faye Palin. (right photo)

This is not a small matter, you would think it would be a bigger outrage to take a 4 year-old to a burglary then to sell drugs to high school teens that were dealers turned informants. It is another sad story from the long ongoing Wasilla drug saga or the gorilla in the room no Wasillian wants to notice. It all goes on within a small area of the Mat-su Valley.

Sarah Palin's sister-in-law, Diana Palin, arrested for burglary

Todd and Sarah Palin

A month after she became governor, Sarah Palin's staff ushered Alaska's public safety commissioner into her private office. But Palin wasn't there (where is she now?). Her husband, Todd, had called the meeting. He was frustrated that his former brother-in-law remained on the job as a state trooper, and he prevailed upon the commissioner to get rid of him. "I thought that was odd and made me a little uncomfortable," said Walter Monegan, the commissioner, who later was fired by Gov. Palin. "We 're having it in the governor's office, and he's not the governor. I think he was trying to use state trappings to handle a personal issue ." The January 2007 meeting was part of a long pattern of pressure that she and her husband applied on state officials to try to get the trooper fired, according to an Alaska legislative report released Friday. The report said those contacts amounted to an abuse of power and a violation of the state's ethics laws, which prohibit using public office for personal benefit . But while the condemnation of now-vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin was the conclusion, the nearly 300-page report by investigator Stephen Branchflower was more about her husband. Todd Palin, the self- described "first dude" of Alaska, had extraordinary access to his wife's office, her staff and her power. Todd Palin spent about 50 percent of his time in the governor's office, making phone calls , participating in meetings or just hanging out, said Gary Wheeler, a member of Gov. Palin's security detail. "He had a significant influence, in that he was always interacting with the, the employees there," Wheeler told state investigators. "Any time I needed to get information to the governor, I would always go through Todd." The governor and her staff kept Todd Palin in the loop on a wide range of issues, copying him on e-mails about union matters, public relations and a bill requiring parental consent for abortions . His efforts to get Mike Wooten, Sarah Palin's sister's ex-husband, fired were extensive. Todd Palin held dozens of meetings and phone calls with state officials, alleging that Wooten threatened the Palin family , was too unstable to be a trooper, and was cheating the worker's compensation system. Todd Palin would not answer a question about the report during a campaign stop Saturday. GOP presidential candidate John McCain's spokesman in New Hampshire, Jeff Grappone, said Palin would not take questions from the media during his visit. But in an affidavit he provided to investigators, he made no apologies. "I have heard criticism that I am too involved in my wife's administration ," he wrote. "My wife and I are very close. We are each other's best friend. I have helped her in her career the best I can, and she has helped me." Taylor Griffin, a spokesman for John McCain's presidential campaign, compared Todd Palin's role to that of other political spouses. First lady Eleanor Roosevelt was a vocal player in labor civil rights issues, Hillary Rodham Clinton took on health care while first lady, and Nancy Reagan was a close adviser to her husband. "The role that Todd has played, I don't think is dissimilar from other spouses, and I think it's an entirely appropriate role," Griffin said. "And Todd will play an appropriate role as the spouse of the vice president." The legislative probe began as an investigation into whether Palin improperly fired Monegan for resisting efforts to fire Wooten. The report concluded that Monegan's firing was legal, because Palin had the right to choose her top administrators, but that the pressure Palin and her husband exerted to try to get Wooten fired was improper. Palin originally pledged cooperation with the legislative inquiry, which was approved by a bipartisan vote of a committee on which Republicans are the majority. After McCain tapped Palin as his running mate, however, accusations of political interference quickly pushed the personnel matter into the national spotlight. Democratic state Sen. Hollis French drew heavy criticism for saying the investigation could provide an "October surprise" for the McCain campaign. That allowed the McCain-Palin campaign to dismiss Friday's report as a political smear. The McCain campaign even issued its own rival report clearing Palin of all wrongdoing. "I think it did turn into a partisan circus," Palin said Saturday in a brief conference call with Alaska reporters. She said she was pleased that the investigation upheld her authority to fire Monegan. She said she disagrees with the report's finding that she abused her power. Though the committee's report reached some stinging conclusions, it was largely toothless. The Legislature has no authority to sanction Palin for ethical misconduct. That's up to the state Personnel Board, which is running a parallel investigation that Palin is cooperating with.

Crapped out, yawning
Longing my life a--way

And I watch the cars
I fear Ill do some damage

Still crazy after all these years
Oh, still crazy
Still crazy

I don't buy into the Palin undisclosed location gig at all. She quit existing until she can show what's in her head at a few dozen Town Hall meetings. Discussions beyond her Fox News or Eddie Burke radio mentality would help. The name she sold out is still around for comics and others to have some fun. The rest of her is gone. If she actually has ghostwriters work a Twitter account that will be obvious and the final nail!

Mercede Johnston

In brief
By Brendan Joel Kelley | Anchorage Press
On the heels of the blog report from The Immoral Minority that ex-Governor Sarah Palin and her husband Todd are divorcing—which earned the blogger, Gryphen, a pissy letter from Palin attorney Thomas Van Flein, declaring it a malicious lie—both Levi Johnston and his sister Mercede are telling the tabloids that the rumor’s true.

On Monday Levi told RadarOnline.com (owned by the same company, American Media, as the National Enquirer) that Sarah and Todd had problems “from day one,” and that he definitely thought their marital woes were a contributing factor to Sarah abdicating her governorship. Wednesday, Mercede Johnston threw her two cents in, in an interview with Star magazine (also owned by American Media). “Sarah and Todd are fighting all the time,” Mercede told Star. She also said Todd was often sleeping on the couch, and that Bristol told Levi they’d fight over things like taking out the trash and washing dishes. Mercede called the Palins’ marriage “a sham for the cameras.”
