Gryphen's Sarah Palin checklist. A work in progress.

When Sarah Palin burst on the scene as John McCain's VP candidate and started fanning the flames of racism against Barack Obama, as well as making incredibly dangerous and fraudulent claims against our future President, I made a mental list of priorities that I wanted to help accomplish. (By the way this list evolved over time and now includes subjects that I was not even aware were coming down the pike in 2008.)

1) Stop John McCain and Sarah Palin from making it to the White House.

2) Reveal the truth behind the fantasy that Sarah Palin is a good and effective Governor.

3) Get her out of office!

4) Reveal the pathetic and controversial truth about Sarah Palin's personal mythology.

5) Provide a platform for those who know truthful stories about Palin, yet are afraid to report them to the press.

6) Direct focus on Palin, and her family's, attempts to grift money from her ignorant supporters, and report on how frivolously she spends that money.

7) Help journalists, authors, documentary makers, and anybody willing to tell the truth about Sarah Palin, make contact with sources willing to tell of their experiences with the Grizzled Mama.

8) Reveal to the widest segment of the American public possible, one of the BIGGEST, and most egregious, hoaxes ever perpetrated on them by a politician in our country's history. Babygate!

9) Draw back the cloak of secrecy that shields those that supported, and used Sarah Palin for their own nefarious reasons, to reveal them to the American public.

10) Help to make sure that another potentially dangerous politician, like Sarah Palin, George Bush, or John Edwards never gets close to the White House again. (I only include Edwards because his adultery could have made him a very easy person to blackmail into supporting policies that could have done our country great harm.)

So let's see how I've done.

1) After her defeat I received a lot of heartfelt thanks from many of the visitors here.

But in my opinion it was mostly undeserved.

I did only a small part in getting the truth out about Sarah Palin, John McCain, and the Republican party.

Others like Katie Couric, Keith Olbermann, Charlie Gibson, and even Tine Fey deserve FAR more credit than I do.  Of course ultimately the real thanks should go to Sarah Palin herself for being such an incredibly unqualified, and gaffe prone candidate.

(Half-check mark for me.)

2) I helped to found the Alaskans for Truth, and used my blog and networking, to get the truth out about Troopergate, the per-diems she paid herself to stay in her own house, the free travel vouchers she got on behalf of family members, the cronyism that riddled her administration, etc., etc., etc., to my fellow Alaskans.

(Check mark!)

3) I don't actually know how much I helped to accomplish this, but she's out! (Check mark!)

4) I don't believe there are too many people who are now unaware that the idyllic life that the Palins paint for themselves is pure mooseshit. Check mark!

5) I helped Mercede start her blog, wrote posts containing information from anonymous sources about the Palins that they could not get published in other places, helped Shailey get her story out in the National Enquirer, on this blog, and later on her own blog, tried to help Levi get his book written two years ago when it would have made a huge impact, and have maintained a blogroll linking to blogs ("Sarah Palin's Least Favorite Blogs") that have done some truly ground breaking work on getting the truth out about Klondike Kardashian. (Check mark!)

6) From SarahPAC, to "Sarah Palin's Alaska", to Dancing with the Stars, and even to Palin's 2012 Political Prick Tease, I have tried to rake away the Palin bullshit to lay bare what is REALLY taking place as often as possible.

(Half check mark. I could have done better.)

7) I have provided support to Geoffrey Dunn, Nick Broomfield, Joe McGinniss,  as well as others, and I have helped them as much as I could to make contact with people living in Wasilla, and around Alaska, that have stories to tell about the REAL Sarah Palin. I have certainly not provided ALL of their sources, and in fact all of them have made very impressive contacts of their own, but I did what I could. Some truths remain unrevealed.

(Half check mark.)

8) Most of this work has taken place right here on this blog, or on one of the blogs in the IM blogroll, but with Joe's book we are finally seeing the bizarre story reaching a much larger audience, and hopefully with the release of Fred's book , a much larger audience still.

(Pending check mark I hope to give myself soon.)

9) The Koch brothers, Fox News, the Dominionists, and the Republican party have all had their hands up the back of Sarah Palins blouse working her like a ventriloquist dummy voicing on their behalf crazy inflammatory things like "death panels," or "palling around with terrorists.'" Or ginning up racial hatred toward Barack Obama or the Muslim community.  This is clearly a work in progress, but I believe that we have made some significant connections between Palin and her puppeteers that have caused them some serious blowback and have forced them to abandon her in order to move on to less controversial marionettes.  However now that we know how they operate we can remain vigilant and help to identify the NEXT empty vessel that they fill up with their rhetorical poison.

Looking at you Rick Perry!

(Half check mark.)

10) This has ALWAYS been my ultimate goal, even while I am recognizing the possible futility of ever making it a reality.

Sarah Palin was chosen to be McCain's VP for the most superficial reasons imaginable.  She was attractive, she had faked having a Down Syndrome child to cement her pro-life position, she had hacked various polls to make herself seem popular in Alaska, and she was considered a Christian.

And that my friends was the whole package.

The fact that this occurred should have sent an electric shock of realization to the American population that candidates for the most important political positions in our country were being selected by shadowy figures who have determined that we are so simple minded that we could be seduced by a horribly unqualified pretty face, trained to read talking points off of cue cards.

If this had worked, and it came much closer to working than I think most of us want to admit, it would have furthered a continuing change in the political realities of our country that could have proved devastating.

This change has been orchestrated by the Republican party and started with Ronald Reagan, an actor who played the President, to George W. Bush, a simpleton who played a cowboy playing a President, to a Sarah Palin, a telegenic spokes model who played a Governor, who could have been groomed to play the President, once John McCain kicked the bucket served out his term and she ran in 2012. (Insert scream of horror here.)

Ultimately THIS is what the American voting population needs to be educated about, and Sarah Palin is the perfect example to illustrate that lesson. After reading what Frank Bailey, Geoffrey Dunn, and Joe McGinniss have written, it is clear that the information is now available for any of those who want to really understand how completely broken the political system is in this country.

Now all we have to do is help to encourage people to read the information that is now available, and the information that is still coming, about Sarah Palin, and then use that to vet the shiny new politicians that are just over the next horizon.

That sounds simple, right?  Yeah right.

Well I am not giving up.  After coming this far, there is NO WAY I am just walking away now.

Are you with me?

If you are then I perhaps someday this item will have a check mark as well. But not yet.

  6. Anonymous10:13 AM

    I just had a great thought. Maybe Joe McGinnis needs to write a book on McCain next. I always considered McCain a hero. For a split second, after Hillary lost the Dem bid, I considered moving my support to McCain. I wavered most of the summer. I was a lifelong female independent who turned Dem in recent years. Once McCain announced Palin and I heard her speech, I became and still am a fervent Obama supporter. I also have become aware of how much I dislike McCain for his policies and also his downright nastiness.
    I do believe a McCain book would be an interesting read, especially including the Palin debacle. Yeah, other's have written them already, but I'd bet McGinnis could get material no one else could.

  7. I'm with you.

    And I've got Barack's back, too.

  8. Anonymous10:15 AM

    With you, absolutely! Thank you, Gryphen, for all that you do.

    It's good you could go over those goals and see for yourself how far we have come.

    So true that it's the underpinnings that are not going to shaken off as easily, so we must remain ever vigilant. This has always been about more than Sarah Palin herself.

  9. Anonymous10:16 AM

    100% with you, Gryphen. The end of Sarah Palin as anything but a joke will make certain that other hollow vessels don't simply replace her. Bachmann is already being exposed far more than Palin ever was. Perry is next.

  10. It's not over until we help root out the sick and twisted people who are trying to steer America towards a theocracy. I see real danger ahead when candidates like Rick Perry are hailed as "Christians" who know how to govern and have all the answers. They are supported by a rabid group of non critical thinkers who will march in lock-step towards a totalitarian society if we do not continue to speak out.

    You can rest on your laurels for five minutes only, Gryphen. One big one down. Many more to go.

    This was submitted to IM's Obama post this morning:

    You're a mean SOB Gryphen!

    The world just found out that Sarah Palin had / has a fetish for tall African Americans ballers who love to bang the boards on and off the court and how she secretly cheated on her boyfriend "Have You Seen Todd Palin" and now you start off the week talking about the forbidden fruit Sarah can't get her lips wrapped around... Obama.

    You the man Gryp!

    With a wink of her wonky eye and a playful whipping in and out of her slimy forked snake like tongue, Sarah Palin thought she could get the attention of heart throb Senator Barack Obama.

    The Senator is married to a beautiful woman and would not give Sarah the time of day which infuriated Sarah because no baller has ever refused her and now we know how the Glenn Close - Fatal Attraction love hate psycho passion Sarah Palin has for Obama started.

    The world laughed at how the momma grizzly Sarah Palin portrayed herself as the All American Brady Bunch mother who raised a combat vet, did not abort a DS baby, proud mother of a tiny graceful ballerina dancer with great work ethics, the mother of a daughter who fights for Gay rights, a mother who proudly had a photo op with her 9 year daughter who for some reason is just now learning her additions on flash cards then it is finally revealed that Sarah Palin was really a coke sniffing whore banging strangers she just met - Todd's friends - business partners and neighbors while leaving her kids to fend for themselves while she sells her wedding ring for a dime bag.

    What a way for Sarah Palin to wake up this beautiful morning and having to read about President Obama's accomplishments in The Immoral Minority.

    Pass the straw and needle, it's time for the barracuda to drift back into her own little self medicated world.

  12. Anonymous10:18 AM

    you can do it, G. I am with you.

    Thanks for highlighting the fact many Americans are unaware how badly evil people are distorting the politics in this country. To them, Palin seems harmless, yet she is a puppet for power-hungry traitors.

    McGinniss once made it clear with his "selling" the candidate book. Time for a refresher for Americans, and "The Rogue" may be a good book, but it's not enough.

  13. Yes we can! Yes we will!

  14. Am I with you, Gryph? YOU BET!

    Your "to do list" is brilliant, and it's a real testament to your own values and dedication.

    Your argument about WHY all this matters is crucial. Every MSM "journalist" should have to read this post to understand why Joe's book isn't simply "tawdry" but an important addition to the public record on Palin and how we got here.

    Yes, there is definitely still work to be done. And if any of the current R potential nominees (or others who aren't yet official) appear anywhere close to winning next fall, we need all be out in the streets, waking the sheeple the hell up!!!!! (In the meantime, we need to support candidates locally & nationally who will undo the nightmare we're in across the US.)

    Keep up the great work!!!!

  15. Anonymous10:23 AM

    I am with you, 100%. Great work. The media should bear responsibiliy for this fiasco, too. Had they done to repubs. what they ALWAYS do to dems., this skanky bitch would never have made it out of Alaska. Her credentials were never vetted, her claims of being a family values Christian were never investigated. The McCain people KNEW from the get go that she was a flake, that is why they scrubbed people's computers clean. Just proof of how much they REALLY think of the US. They were willing to make the country an even bigger laughingstock than we were with W in office.

    Great checklist, Gryphen! It sums up a lot of hard work by you and others dedicated to the truth.

    Just read a Tweet and at C$P that The Donald is waiting on The Quitter to declare her candidacy before endorsing Rick Perry or any others.

    If anyone doesn't believe the "lamestream" media isn't controlled by Koch et al, then go find today's Howard Kurtz lovefest for poor, picked on types in the Teabagger realm (read Paylin and Gov. Rick the Slick.

    The whole show on (Un)Reliable Sources today was how McGinnis' book is all lies and inuendo, how the media is irresponsible for reporting on its contents AND how the media is exposing Rickie for the bagger fool he is on purpose. Hey Howie - that's called reporting.

    Wah, wah, waaaaaahhhh!!!! Guess the Baggers and their accomplices at CNN have their frilly little panties in a bunch and can't take it, even though they relish dishing it out.

  18. I'm just about ready to run for President myself....

    I would run on platforms of imposing tariffs on imports, on removing loopholes so corporations pay fair taxes, on paying people something—no matter how much they work as long as they show up for a "government-directed" temporary job to do the kinds of work needed everywhere on roads, green energy, etc., then have incremental pay scales given how well they perform, on providing education or training for a mechanical skill at costs based on family income, on increasing minimum wage to a living wage, to making abortion completely legal by putting the information about the science out there, for starters.

    I need a better job. But I also need a way to create a great website and I have pre-teen daughter at this time, so it may have to be 2016.

    Thanks for all you have done! You're miles ahead of many of us who are mired in survival right now. I know blogs are valuable, but I wish people would put energy in thinking of other ways to address the problems our country faces. (I love the people who walked to Wall Street yesterday!!)

    When I see the petty arguments on some posts, it seems like a lot of time is being wasted in our country, but maybe I am wrong, maybe all this is what is needed to get people together on like-minded issues, so many of which you raised in your list, and find ways to counter what's been going on behind the scenes for much too long.

    I have truly enjoyed your humor and your perseverance. I dream of becoming more active and hope I can find a way to accomplish as much and more as you have. You have truly provided an incredible service to our country! Thank you!

    So Gryphen, you're saying that Palin was the original crony capitalist in government? It's funny how her recent speech was all about what she knows best: crony capitalism and many who knew better were swooning over her for that one speech. Maybe she was going to take on both political parties and take on the cronies. What bullshit! Where is Sarah, by the way? Haven't heard from her for a couple of days now, not that I am complaining or anything.

    At the grocery store yesterday, there was a display that held several copies of Dick Cheney's book. I just shook my head. There is no way I would read that book. Then it hit me, when "The Rogue" comes out Monday, the GOP/Teabaggers will shake their heads and say, "No way would I read that."! Guess we have to hope that all the Dems that have stayed home and not voted, will pick it up and read it. She's kind of passe to many now that Ron Paul is trying to kill them all off. Death Panels is not used anymore! Only if the MSM makes a stink over this book will it convince people to read it and maybe the sex scandals and Sarah's short shorts will catch their eyes. We have dumb people in both parties it seems.

    Yeah, ok Anon 10:09, because things have really changed. Palin is still cheap, her PAC is still pretty big. She's still one of the only politicians who don't abuse the PAC. She's still being defended or ignored. Thinking people don't put stock in Anon sourcing, for good reason. Under Anonymity, people will say anything. Do you know how many people have been caught in lies?

  46. Awesome post!

    If there is a God who is intimately involved in the affairs of men, he may have blessed us with Sarah Palin as a wake up call. Since her charisma draws so much attention, she's the perfect example to expose the greater problem. It's not enough to keep her off the national stage without routing out our political and media dysfunction.

    I don't think the corporate media is ready to make the change we need. We're going to have to find a way to demand it.

    I predict that Palin will take advantage of the books and movie; it will be her ultimate excuse for not running. It is actually a way for her to take advantage of all the truth being revealed. She wasn't going to run, but now she has the excuse, "They're being mean to my family and loved ones." This allows her to keep her bots defending her. I predict there will be tears, and Trig will be present to really bring on the sympathy. She can get even with McGinness, you, Broomfield, etc. by blaming all of you for forcing her out of the race. It will be a soap opera worthy performance in 5, 4, 3, 2....

    11:22 am Everyone Loves the Palin Family Fairy Tale Troll.

    From this point forward, please provide actual sourcing for your claims, specifically names of everyone who loves the Palin family (not related to them) with direct links, articles, and pictures to back it up. You come on here spouting the same boring bullshit over, and over, and over again with no evidence, no names, nothing. If you are a friend from Wasilla you should say so, if you're not you are truly one sick, deranged stalker.

    You convince no one here. We have read time and time again from McCain campaign people, former staffers in Sarah's office, former family members, and former friends from Wasilla on the record, about how psycho Sarah is. We see her spew her hate and vitriol on Fox News, we've read her books full of vendettas, we've watched the strange family dynamic on their TLC reality show. We know they are a dysfunctional mess, nothing you ever write will change that, THIS I KNOW.

    Gryphen is kind to let your little rants through, but the jig is up. If you're not a Palin, you need to seek professional help.

  58. Gryphen, you rock. I really hope that the floodgates are now really beginning to open and soon, all the dirt in Sarah's life comes to light.

    I personally would love to see her in court for all her back room dealings.

    Now, a bit OT.

    McCain was forced to accept Palin as his running mate because his campaign would otherwise have been thoroughly sabotaged by his old "friend" Lowell "Bud" Paxson, the very wealthy Christian broadcaster.

    Just when McCain was meeting with Palin in Feb.2008 at the big GOP meeting in DC, Paxson was out there gleefully contradicting McCain's sworn testimony that he (McCain) had not accepted favors from Paxson in return for furthering Paxson's agenda with the FCC.

    Paxson and his operatives were almost certainly behind the series that had just begun to run in the New York Times accusing McCain of a romantic involvement with Paxson's glamorous "real pro" lobbyist Vicki Iseman, who happened to look almost exactly like "the young Cindy McCain.

    Clearly the religious right and Paxson were trying to pull McCain's chain and make him accept a staunch Right-to-Lifer (Palin) as his running mate.

    After McCain met and chatted with Palin privately at the DC meeting, suddenly all the moves against McCain by Paxson et al. were called off.

    The New York Times expose stopped in its tracks when their sources suddenly dried up. I think McCain had succumbed to the blackmail.

    A few days later, when it the deal was sealed that McCain would get the nomination, on March 5, 2008, Palin announced to her astounded family, friends, and state that she was "7 months pregnant" -- a fact that went unnoticed only a few days earlier in Washington, DC. The"baby" would be named "Trig Paxson Van Palin.."

    It's all in Dunn's book, which has the virtue of an index and further references.

You nicknamed a girl you don't know, therefore cannot judge fairly, beefalo and things more crass. You pick apart everything about Sarah as a teen girl who's insecure would. I take it back.

    Gryphen thank you for all you do. Two years ago when the story of the Palins divorcing hit the MSM I was referred to your blog and I've been a fan since, and a fan of the other anti-Sarah blogs as well. It was you who inspired me to start my own blog "Sarah Palin has a serpent's heart". I don't live in AK so I don't have the contacts and don't have as much time to work on my blog, but I enjoy doing it and getting the word out there about one Sarah Louise Heath Palin. The second she was introduced at the RNC convention I thought there's something about her I don't like. Troopergate confirmed my suspicions.

    Keep passing it forward through the threads ya'll :)

    Yeah, Jesse, I'll give it to you. A good assessment. I've often disagreed with you or some of the things you've chosen to post but in the long run one has to look at the overall picture, like you just did. Goals and results. And I think you did a pretty honest job of it. You're really in a kind of middle-man position here, trying to work up and push out information from both sides. And you've done a good job of that.

    With all this information coming out now(and it's a LOT) we're seeing how others grind it down into something that makes sense to them, something that is usable TODAY, relevant TODAY. You know? And that's where we all have to look at the Big Picture, the picture that emerges on the entire canvas that all of the little details come together to make! Take that to people, you paint that picture for people. And that is the picture of a person that No One wants managing the local dump much less the country.

    I met up with an Uncle yesterday that I hadn't seen in probably 20 years. As much as he was beloved to me years ago, I knew that he was now a very conservative Republican. I'd seen emails...the type that had that erroneous tea-party hysterical type information on it. Yuk. I was fearful he'd become a rabid tea-party believer. Luckily, when politics did come up briefly, he still seemed to be the same friendly, open-minded, nice Uncle I remembered. But still conservative. So I thought I'd inject mention of The Rogue. Turns out he'd been to Alaska twice. Also knows a guy who worked with Palin and sings her praises. But I thought I'd "paint" a picture anyway. I kept it pretty generalized and vanilla, but when I was done he agreed. Someone "like that" - no way for President!
    Ta Da!

    So you keep at it. And we all have to keep at it. I think a lot of people are not going to accept this Openly, you know? Oh but a whole hell of a lot will be talking about it in hushed tones, you can hella believe that. And it WILL become accepted knowledge about Palin in due time (I wish I could underline that!) In all the right places. Will Fox still use her as a talking Shrill? Sure, if she gets ratings. Uggh.

    Jesse, I hope that you follow through with what you said in regards to Levi's book, and whether or not he reveals what NEEDS to be said. You had said that if he does NOT, that you will reveal what YOU know. I hope that you do, because all of us would like to see some progress with babygate.

While Joe's book reveals more about all her sleaziness, even more important is how very vindictive and vicious she really is, and what a phony she is. She is a bully who tries to intimidate others by fear. Todd also seems to be just like her in that respect, and no wonder people are now seeing him for what he really is all about.

    Professing to be a Christian, she acts anything but. Her and her family have turned out to be so dysfunctional, that it is a joke when they even try to get out there and say they are an "inspiration" to others.

    Hang in there and please keep up the good work! Thanks!

    Their fantasies are the only thing keeping them from the truth. I have worked in 2 different hospitals, a small town one and a regional trauma center that also had a NICU. There is NO WAY any hospital would send a woman leaking amniotic fluid onto an airplane flight, in fact, she would NOT have been allowed to leave--even if they would have had to put her into a 72 hr baker law hold to keep her ( yes that has been done before). Any hospital would have been liable if they hadn't held her. But the Pee Bots are too delusional to look at facts.

What about the endless FACTS that CAN be proven that the MSM doesn't cover? Her use of her sexuality to navigate through her life? The reports from people who HAVE worked with her.The UNLIKELY Trig birth story which has rec'd almost no MSM coverage. And the list expands. There is no way in hell that a progressive politician would escape media scrutiny to this degree.

    ALSO,I am revolted by the creepy pollyanna poster who INSISTS in a child like church kid way that this repulsive family is all cuddled up together in perfect harmony and love. NOTHING fits with this family. NOTHING makes sense. There are PILES of obfuscation and deceit and dysfunction associated with them which are too deep to penetrate. The talking MSM heads and their guests are largely clueless and Lazy.They live in a bubble.

  88. nogravity12:54 PM

    From the sea o pea:

    "Within days of my research of Governor Palin, and my consideration of other possible candidates as choices for the McCain ticket, Trig Palin was born on April 18, 2008. Sarah had been in Texas as the keynote speaker at an energy conference. She began to experience labor pains, but continued to finish her important speech. She contacted her current doctor, who had also delivered her daughter Piper. Sarah caught an Alaska Airlines flight from Dallas to Anchorage, with a stop in Seattle, where she was examined by doctors before returning to Alaska to deliver Trig. Sarah would later say, ”I am not a glutton for pain and punishment. I would have never wanted to travel had I been fully engaged in labor.” Either way, Sarah has always taken the unconventional road and, even if she does not admit it herself, she is one tough lady."

    So did she go to the hospital or does the airport have a medical center complete with a maternity ward?

    Only a man, making details up, would write something like that.

    That's all I really need to know about how vindictive this woman is. And how "Christian" she is.

  90. This pissed me off greatly and it should make everyone on this forum very angry. This is where the country is headed and it is sad that the rich white man is so afraid of minority voters and newly eligible voters that it has come to this.

    I just listened to the first Prairie Home of the season and Garrison did a bit where he was referring to the "rich white guys" that Guy Noir was doing security for at a golf tournament as the "job creators".

    He did a little tongue-in-cheek thing regarding "don't piss off these rich white guys or they might outsource our jobs to Thailand." That speaks volumes about the "rich white guys" that are actually running so scared now that they are attempting to and actually getting voter legislation passed to make it more difficult for anyone that is not "rich and white" to vote. It's a long article, but worth the read. The "rich white guys" are finding it difficult to maintain their status quo if "everyone" gets a voice and has a vote. Thus, they will make damn sure that only "they" have a voice and a vote.

    RobBennett [Moderator] 5 hours ago
    The thing that got me when I heard the announcement of the Palin pick was that she had had a Downs baby born to her. My wife had had a Downs baby die at five months in the womb. The doctors had been relentless in their pressure on her to kill the baby and she had cried over this. Now I was hearing about someone whose power and wealth would be compromised by having a Downs baby who went ahead and let the baby live. That's all I needed to hear.

    The policy stuff is secondary. The three questions that matter most are: (1) Is this person honest?; (2) Is this person moral?; and (3) Does this person have a heart?

    I think God have her the Downs baby test so that we would all know what kind of person she was when the media was spreading its lies. That one act counts for more than 500 of the policy statements and promises of the typical politician. No one could fake that one act.

    Racism IS Sarah's calling card. She brought out the character assasination by associsation to a man who did something when Obama was eight years old. She's the one who called him a "blood muslim" long before her "blood libel" speech.
    Sarah's hooked on hate, racism, blood, guns, ignornace, religion, and sex. Her affair with Rice IS important, because it shows her hypocricy and jealousy. Babygate IS important because it shows she'll stoop to any level to impress the base. The woman is a walking study in narcissistic self destruction. And her followers refuse to believe it.

    Keep up the good work, Bachmann will do herself in politically, and Perry IS the next Palin, only with better hair and different plumbing.

    I can't be bothered to source the info here on this blog today regarding Palin "holding tight in labor and having been checked out in Seattle".

    But really, if Palin's water had broken then even a 3 hour flight from Seattle to Anchorage would have been risky. Contractions could have become very close and "pushing" would have been instinctive. The pushing process of childbirth tends to void bladder and colon. Not to be indelicate but are we to believe that Palin would have chosen to sit on a plane and push and poop herself and pee herself.

    This woman had 4 kids prior to the supposed birth of Trig. She knows what birth is like. It's not something that you sit in a plane seat at 39,000 feet and just maintain until you get to the proper facility. Birth happens, often fast and hard and full of stinky effluents from all orifices. There is no holding it back once it is in progress. Her story is utter bullshit regarding the wild ride.

    We all have to depend on TV, books and the actual records of people's actions to form our opinions. If Sarah wanted people to know her, why doesn't she do interviews besides on Fox? Why does she only rely on Fox, Twitter and Facebook? Does she think she'll win an election with 600,000 Twitter followers and 3,500,000 Facebook followers?

And you're absolutely accurate in your assertion that one of Palin's premiere goals was to "fan the flames of racism" as she so inartfully and overtly did from the stump in Florida. People there were fearful for their lives due to the capricious, racist remarks this was woman was intimating and stating. We'd never witnessed anything like this in our political lives thus far. Anyone who did not see this for what it was: an empty vessel put out there on stage to fan the flames of vulgar racism has their head up their anal orifice...not to mention that if they cannot see this it is purely because of their own level of self-loathing in knowing themselves to be filled with ugly racist thoughts.

    The bottom line right now is that due to the diligent work of you Gryph and a constellation of others you've named, Fraud Palin has now been outed and her 3 minutes of fame are drawing to a swift close.

    It's clear that John McCain, in his own capricious irresponsibility selected a virtual 'neophyte' devoid of common sense with a habit of lying and creating her own reality for the major portion of her life. I have no doubt that McPappy's now infamous 'claim to fame' was foisting this vulgar individual upon this country. She never had any real credentials and hacked her own polls which became evident in her overwhelming inability to even finish her term as Governor. The credibility he worked years to create in the minds of Americans has been totally besmerched by this fraudulent woman. But then, he has no one to blame but himself which is precisely why he deserves to carry all the blame for ever pretending and trying to dupe all of us into believing that she even has a brain.

    From the sea o pea:

    "...Sarah caught an Alaska Airlines flight from Dallas to Anchorage, with a stop in Seattle, where she was examined by doctors before returning to Alaska to deliver Trig..."

    So did she go to the hospital or does the airport have a medical center complete with a maternity ward? (snip).

    There's no way she went to a hospital in Seattle. Unless the guy who saw her sitting quietly reading a book in the lounge was a doctor. And he had no clue she was in labor.

    You said, "Oh, for fritz's sake! Really? Everything *has* to be about race?"

    REALLY? Oh dear lord! Are you always so damn ignorant? If you would have taken the time to properly read the paragraph you would have realized Gryphen never implied everything *has* to be about race. Racism was only one of many issues that caused him to take action. There were several other issues with Palin that were listed in the same paragraph but you only focused on race. I wonder what that says about you? Maybe you're ignorant or maybe you're a racist, or maybe you're both! Please learn more about reading comprehension before you comment again.

    It seems simple really. People don't "attack" for no reason. People who receive harsh judgment or action do something to deserve negative treatment.

    If people wish to live happily, they have that choice. They don't have to associate with people they wish not to. Wasilla may be sparsely populated in comparison to cities down here, but the area is huge. There are definitely people in the Valley who've never met the Palins. and are oblivious because of it.

    It seems like people are just nosy and looking FOR TROUBLE. Thats the impression I get. The truly gossipy folks in small towns are not happy when they're not in the center of attention and those types will say anything to receive attention.

    Ivonne Bashelier = huge liar who has the Atlantic ocean as a buffer so she feels comfortable rewriting history. Thats one example.

    Again, if you wish to live peacefully, you dont have to embroil yourself in petty, underhanded gossip. Wasilla is a beautiful part of AK. I've been several times. The people are super friendly and welcoming. It's getting a bad rap because there are those who need money or attention or because they're malicious.

    ...Just ask yourself the above question.

    Back atcha. How do you think Malia and Sasha Obama feel about their father not only being viciously attacked on blogs but on the mainstream news, receiving threats on his life, being impugned and misrepresented at all turns? And their mother being mocked--by a wannabe celebrity/ failed politician who doesn't "know" her--for encouraging children to make healthy eating and exercise choices?

    As far as MY mother being viciously attacked by people who don't know her...well, MY mother isn't running for any political office. MY mother was a virgin when she married my father and has never cheated on him. MY mother has never done drugs, never gotten drunk, never even smoked a cigarette. The only government money she has taken is social security, and she has never been remotely linked to any suspicious deaths. She has ample proof that she actually gave birth to all three of her children...all of whom have college degrees, none of whom has gotten knocked up as a teenager or been involved in vandalism or other brushes with the law.

    So if someone did find reason to viciously attack my mom, it would be easy to counter with the truth. Unfortunately, Sarah's kids don't have that option. And Sarah should never have placed them in the position of feeling like they have to defend the indefensible, aka her.

    I'm mainly a lurker and I don't post much, but this troll who keeps popping up to castigate us for "judging" and "lying" about poor little Sarah and her perfect little make me SICK!
    For 3 years now, at EVERY opportunity, Sarah Palin has lied, slandered, judged, and belittled ANYONE who doesn't agree with her, regardless of party. She sat her flat ass on Fox news and judged both Anthony Wiener AND Arnold Schwarzenegger, declaring that their extra-marital actions "spoke to their character." While most people would agree that Arnie and Anthony did bad things, the fact that this mentally crippled, morally bankrupt CHILD PIMPER, SLUT, LIAR, HORRIBLE MOTHER AND UNFAITHFUL WIFE AND GIRLFRIEND sits in judgment on others ,and then cries and whines when people discover she's not exactly the Virgin Mary herself, just makes her hypocrisy that much more insulting.
    You are a f'n idiot if you believe this stupid bitch is somehow more accomplished than our President when he has been a community organizer, a civil rights attorney, a state senator, a Constitutional Prof, and a US senator who YEAH - IS SO NAIVE AND INCOMPETENT THAT HE RAN A HISTORICAL GRASSROOTS CAMPAIGN, DESTROYED THE CLINTON POLITICAL MACHINE AND PUT THE BEAT DOWN ON SARAH AND MCCAIN to become the first African-American President! And it has slowly but surely become clear that Sarah just can't handle the fact that she got her ASS WHUPPED BY A BEAUTIFUL BLACK MAN THAT NEVER EVEN LOOKED AT HER. Why do you think she hates Michelle when Michelle has NEVER done or said anything to her!
    You claim we fear her, well, yes, we did! We feared her ever getting her hands on the nuclear codes and having an opportunity to piss off other world leaders with her stupidity and belligerence. Her election to office would mean the end of our country. Do you doubt this? Then you underestimate both the fear and loathing other countries have had us for the last decade, as well as the disgust most of the planet feels that we would risk our lives and the lives of everyone on Earth by putting such an obvious psychotic ignoramus in any position of power.
    SARAH is the one who is AFRAID...and everyone knows it! Michelle Bachmann is crazy and stupid but at least she has the guts to stand on stage with the boys (without leopard print stilletos and a mini-skirt) and has the courage answer questions and to to refute their points...your stupid little tin goddess Sarah won't even take her stupid ass to a debate venue WITH HER OWN PARTY. Yet you idiots think that she will destroy Obama in a debate and that he is somehow losing sleep over this jobless retard. Jesus Christ you people depress me, but hey, keep sending her your money dipshits. Sarah needs a new house!

    Thank you, Gryphen, for all of your dedication to this blog.

    I am more than a little bit surprised that the Palin supporters and MSM are OK with the idea of a one-night stand with a young athlete while working as a sports reporter. Regardless of his or her race it is just plain unethical on so many levels. Think about it. You are a 22-year old, young "professional" just starting out as a sportscaster. You are in a serious relationship with your boyfriend at the time (according to Going Rogue), and you decide, on a whim, to go and sleep with some guy from the basketball team. I don't know. I am very liberal and am not at all against premarital sex but that decision of hers was just plain irresponsible, disrespectful (to Todd and Glen), and indicative of something! Looking for Mr Goodbar comes to mind. Also, if there was one there's a hundred (as my father used to say). How many other one-night stands did Sarah engage in? How does this impact on her ability to lead the country? Wow! How does it NOT impact? Bad choices, no accountability, no honesty, and lots of hypocrisy.

    I realize that I am preaching to the choir but the whole thing is just mind-boggling. Next topic ... illegal drug use ...

Gonna go check if this is in there, I'm sure it's NOT. Also, too who was that Doc or medical clinic?

Do you really think you would have accomplished all you have without all of the cross pollination from the other bloggers? All of the posters here and on other sites that came up with solid leads, by process of elimination or intense, unheralded research? They too, deserve accolades and you should mention them in your list.

Just saying if it was me, and it was an isolated incident, I'd be more concerned about destroying my relationship than the race of the guy I did it with.

    On the other hand, perhaps Todd & Sarah were far more liberal (or "librul", as the TP'ers say), and it was only Glen's race that would've destroyed their relationship.

    Gryphen, The latest revisionist history of the Wild Ride is pure hooey, as we say here in Texas.

    Sarah didn't leave the Seattle airport to go to any hospital. She was observed in the lounge sitting quietly and reading. Remember that email in the first MSNBC FOIA request back in 2009? It was from a family friend congratulating them on the birth of Trig. The friend happened to be at the Seattle airport. In the email, this friend wrote that he had no idea Sarah was in labor because she was sitting so quietly and calmly. Yeah, I remember how quiet and calm I was when I was in labor.

    Frankly, it makes no sense that she would seek a doctor in Seattle. In fact, I think this is just a big LIE in an attempt to get in front of this story. In Dallas, after leaking amniotic fluid for over 8 hours (started at 4am, with speech at 1pm) plus "big laughs, bigger contractions," (her words in Going Rogue) Sarah didn't see fit to hustle over to Baylor to get checked out. Why in Seattle, when all is so wonderfully calm?

To paraphrase the Prime Minister of Norway, the answer to violence (or in our case, what is obviously a deliberate intention to create chaotic violence in America), is even more democracy.
