People magazine rewrites Palin history:
About a year after Sarah Palin famously turned down a campaign season appearance with talk show host — and major Barack Obama supporter — Oprah Winfrey, the former GOP vice presidential candidate has agreed to take her turn on the couch.
Courtney Hazlitt of MSNBC claims the same.
Democrats, running scared of conservative women, try some scare tactics of their own, warning Seattle voters that Susan Hutchison, candidate for King County executive, could be the next Sarah Palin. Planned Parenthood and SEIU bring in big time money for a small time campaign, but ya know, Sarah Palin started as mayor of a small town, so it’s never too early to start the termination process.
And proving Palin is a powerful icon, no matter which side you’re on …
We know that former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin can hunt, and even field-dress a moose, but how will she take to poachers on her book sales? Start-up publisher OR Books has announced plans to publish Going Rouge: Sarah Palin An American Nightmare, a collection of essays about the maverick.
For the sake of confusion (and sales?), Going Rouge — produced by editors of progressive mag The Nation — will be released the same day as Going Rogue.
Hours later, Politico reports “Palin backs Hoffman in NY-23”
Seems Sarah is still going rogue.
Why are Bachmann and Palin dumping Republican candidate Dede Scozzafava for a man running for a third party? Because Doug Hoffman‘s politics and values are — bingo! — conservative. Maybe that’s why they call it the conservative party (now there’s a catchy name).
Scozzofava may be a woman, but she’s beyond being a RINO — a radical leftist whose support for abortion won her the Margaret Sanger Award and whose campaign is supported by the usual suspects leftwise.
Contrast Palin and Bachmann with Newt Gingrich, who’s supporting Scozzofava for the sake of the R behind her name.
Palin writes at Facebook:
The votes of every member of Congress affect every American, so it’s important for all of us to pay attention to this important Congressional campaign in upstate New York. I am very pleased to announce my support for Doug Hoffman in his fight to be the next Representative from New York’s 23rd Congressional district. It’s my honor to endorse Doug and to do what I can to help him win, including having my political action committee, SarahPAC, donate to his campaign the maximum contribution allowed by law. …
Doug Hoffman stands for the principles that all Republicans should share: smaller government, lower taxes, strong national defense, and a commitment to individual liberty.
Political parties must stand for something. When Republicans were in the wilderness in the late 1970s, Ronald Reagan knew that the doctrine of “blurring the lines” between parties was not an appropriate way to win elections. Unfortunately, the Republican Party today has decided to choose a candidate who more than blurs the lines …
Watch out Republicans! There seems to be a rising tide of women who are fed up with the RNC Good Old Boys (and Girls) Club. As A Mom has signed in 52,541 members in just the last three weeks. Women across the country are getting involved and vowing to vote issues rather than party. With the example of Palin and Bachmann, this may be just the beginning. …
