Palin Family Circus News - Saturday, October 16, 2010

Meg Whitman, like several other nationally prominent Republicans, has evaded the question of Sarah Palin's qualifications to be President. The LA Times reports:

Asked whether she thought Palin was qualifed to be president, Whitman said: "Technically, she’s qualified to be president because you have to be a U.S. citizen and be in good standing. I think the voters of the United States are going to decide who's going to be the next Republican nominee and there's going to be a lot of competition for that."

There are millions of people just as qualified as Palin, using the "constitutionally qualifed" standard.

Sarah Palin has been in California, and she will appear at a Republican National Committee rally, today, in Orange County. But two of California's office seekers are staying away:

A Field Poll released last week found that 58 percent of the state's registered voters hold a negative view of Palin, although she remains quite popular among Republicans. In addition, two-thirds of independent voters would be less inclined to support a candidate endorsed by her.

That could help explain why California's two most prominent Republican candidates this year — gubernatorial hopeful Meg Whitman and Senate candidate Carly Fiorina — will be absent from Saturday's RNC rally in Anaheim.

San Jose Mercury News' article also describes Palin's appearance and speech, yesterday, alongside Howard Dean, in Sacramento, California's capitol. Palin tried to convince the audience that Republicans are on the side of the little guy, saying, "This election is about the little guy, the common man, independence, and the middle class — those forgotten and ignored for far too long, and now they're fighting back," but she then slipped-up by saying, "They — we — are saying enough is enough."

The LA Times' Top of the Ticket column has an article about Sarah Palin's Alaska. The column says, "I'd rather be doing this than in some stuffy old political office," Palin is heard saying while looking out on across a beautiful snowy vista. And how can you not agree with her? The show begins November 14, and a 30-second promotional video can be seen at The LA Times.

Any publicity is good publicity? Celebrity Cafe is reporting, "The porn actress best known for her parodies of Sarah Palin says she will not do films that require unprotected sex."

Sarah Palin's news-worthiness is obviously on the decline. At least one news organization has decided not to report her tweets and Facebook rants, and no one with any credibility reports on her speeches to anti-choice groups. Good news!

Calgary's Herald quotes Palin saying, in the show's promo:

"I'd rather be doing this than in some stuffy old political office. I'd rather be out here, being free," said the former Republican vice-presidential candidate.

Good plan, Sarah. Make everyone happy!

I've been noticing the decline in Palin coverage too. It's about time. Reporting her tweets and ghostwritten facebook rants as news was absurd. I guess some of the media finally realized that Sarah's celebrity is actually pretty boring because she's a one-trick pony.
As for her out there being free, yeah right. There has never been any real confirmation that she EVER spent much time in the great outdoors of Alaska, at least until somebody paid her to do it. It is still Alaska's loss though. I wouldn't watch her show even if I were paid by the Alaska tourist bureau. She does not, and never will, represent true Alaska. She is a poster child for the corrupt politics of Alaska, which, unfortunately, is what Alaska is mostly known for.

So Sarah is finally getting what she has been whining about...less coverage from the "lamestream media". Good. So how long before she starts whining that she is ignored by the media? She will have to start pulling stupid stunts or controversies that get into the news.
I always wanted to go to Alaska on a cruise or some kind of extended visit. Since Palin bubbled up to the surface in the 2008 election, I have no desire to ever set foot in the state for any reason.

How can she have any credibility left when everything she says is absurd? For her to be making millions giving unintelligible speeches who can she claim she's representing the little guy?

She is a wind-up doll for the Teabaggers and none of their positions will help middle class citizens. To repeal healthcare reform would take away people's new medical benefits and the regulation enacted to protect citizens from the abuse of the greedy, corrupt insurance companies.

Keeping the Bush tax cuts only helps the wealthy and needlessly adds $4 trillion to the deficit.
She doesn't understand a thing about the issues and would have us in another war if she got into power.

I heard that on the news, too, and rue the day that Palin's mother had pre-marital unprotected sex and unleashed this whole mess on the country.

I also had wanted to visit AK since I first learned about the aurora borealis was. Now, I'm sticking with British Columbia. Nice people from AK, I'll meet you there.

Not only is Sarah Pain qualified to be President, she could even be an astronaut. After all, she could see the moon from her house in Alaska.

Darn her!!!

It's my prerogative to quote Yogi Berra ...
