Calling all Trolls!
CNN dutifully reports:
The Democratic National Committee is taking fresh aim at Sarah Palin, encouraging supporters to attack the former Alaska governor on Facebook in order to “debunk her lies.”
In an e-mail to supporters, and on a new Web site, the DNC asks supporters to call out Palin when she uses Facebook to transmit what the committee says are falsehoods.
“The more we push back with the truth, the more Sarah Palin and others like her will have to think twice before they promote lies, and the less they’ll be able to derail progress,” DNC executive director Jen O’Malley Dillon wrote in the e-email.
Barracuda to Biden
At Facebook, Palin posts: Response to Vice President Biden’s Comments Today About My Position On Energy Independence
Sarah robo-calls Virginia
“Virginia, hello, this is Sarah Palin calling to urge you to go to the polls Tuesday and vote for Sarah’s principles. The eyes of America will be on Virginia and make no mistake about it, every vote counts. So don’t take anything for granted, vote your values on Tuesday, and urge your friends and family to vote, too.”
The recording did not mention candidate Bob McDonnell, nor was it funded by his campaign — but by the Virginia Faith and Freedom Coalition.
Sarah coming to Kansas
The Salina Area Chamber of Commerce announces the speaker for its 2010 annual banquet: Sarah Palin. Tickets for the 1,408 banquet seats were sold out in two days. However, there are approximately 2,600 gallery seats which may or may not be sold out, though sales have been suspended for now.
Fox News reports:
Despite her image as a polarizing figure and her penchant to provoke fervent support or intense hatred, the real Sarah Palin is a “complicated person” who isn’t as dumb as her opponents say or as transcendent as her supporters believe, according to a new book.
Sarah From Alaska: The Sudden Rise and Brutal Education of a New Conservative Superstar is written by CBS News reporter Scott Conroy and former Fox News producer Shushannah Walshe, who covered Palin on the 2008 campaign trail. According to Walshe, “It’s the good, the bad and the ugly. Everything is there.”
Wins and losses
At Facebook, Palin posts: A Victory for Common Sense and Fiscal Sanity
The race for New York’s 23rd District is not over, just postponed until 2010. …
To the tireless grassroots patriots who worked so hard in that race and to future citizen-candidates like Doug, please remember Reagan’s words of encouragement after his defeat in 1976:
“The cause goes on. Don’t get cynical because look at yourselves and what you were willing to do, and recognize that there are millions and millions of Americans out there that want what you want, that want it to be that way, that want it to be a shining city on a hill.”
– Sarah Palin
While tired old media outlets yammer on about the NY-23 race — where Palin’s endorsement of conservative candidate Doug Hoffman resulted in beyond-RINO Dede Scozzafava dropping out of the race and supporting the Democrat who won the seat — and insist it means the GOP must remain moderate, Palin Power surfaces in Chicago, where Illinois Rep. Mark Kirk is jockeying for Palin’s endorsement in the upcoming primary for Obama’s former seat, since appointed to Sen. Roland Burris (D).
Ever wonder why liberal pundits are so concerned with helping the Republican Party avoid losses? Should the GOP listen to their sage advice about dumping Palin? Ask Doug Hoffman, who soared from 15% to 46% after Palin’s endorsement just two weeks before the election.
