Horsing Around

Elias Peltrouche rides Dance to Bristol (Photo by Jim McCue/MJC)

You won’t believe what I saw in the news.  Apparently, there’s a horse named “Dance to Bristol” who’s on a winning streak:

Coming from off the pace in the $200,000 Honorable Miss Handicap (gr. II) (VIDEO) at Saratoga Race Course, Susan Wantz’s Dance to Bristol extended her win streak to six with her July 29 victory.

What a great name for a horse!  Too bad we weren’t at the races, because we would’ve definitely picked that horse to win and could’ve made some money.

Or, at least we would’ve picked her to come in third to a horse named “Dance to Jennifer Grey!”

    In one of the Triple Crown races a few years ago, there was a horse called “First Dude”, who was the offspring of “Run Sarah Run”. It sounds like there’s plenty of Palin fans in the horse racing world!

    • melinda

      Of course! That was at Belmont, where sarah first showed up sporting what are now comically referred to as the “Belmont Twins”!

      • probuiltenterprises

        way too many sour grapes Melinda.

        • melinda

          Sour garpes? Sorry probuilt, but unlike Sarah palin, I’m happy with my chest size and don’t feel the need to pad it to get attention/support/self confidence or whatever she occasionally does it for. I’m also, by the way happy with my height and don’t need to pretend I am 5’10″ ( I already am) like Sarah Palin does in her wedges.

          • probuiltenterprises

            Melinda, I’m concerned for you. I am glad you like your own tits and 5’10″ is good but I’m not sure where it fit’s into this thread. Honestly, I think your obsessing way to much over Sarah. I know it bothers many women that this lady could run a fishing business, hunt her own food, raise 5 kids, control a PAC, write books and look VERY good doing it…. when some women can barely make coffee in the morning. I know other women who have obsessed like this and it literally begins to eat into their psyche. Chill girl….it’s all good. A fun conversation can lighten the day to day drudgery. By the way 5’10″ is a very nice size and I’ll bet your boobs are wonderful

          • melinda

            probuilt, your opinion on my chest matters little to me. But it’s sad that Sarah feels the need to pad hers. Run a fishing business? I thought Todd “ran” that seasonal business. Control a PAC? Really? I think that’s against the rules isn’t it? Write books? I think you mean have other people write books for you. Look good? Well, you may disagree but I think she’s lost her looks in the past few years.

            So why did her chest padding get mentioned here? Just having some fun with the Belmont connection. Beyond that, it just leaves one to wonder why she does it.

          • probuiltenterprises

            you know all this how? or just your opinion

          • Melinda

            I know all ” what” how? Probuilt? I don’t know if he runs the seasonal fishing business but I thought he did. It was his from the start, the rights inherited. No? And I don’t think one can control their own PAC legally, can they? And it’s a fact Sarah had others write her books. And all one has to do is look at photos to see Sarah pads her chest sometimes.

          • probuiltenterprises

            it’s common knowlege the Palins run 2 fishing boats. She ran one crew until her son came back from the middle east and Tod ran the other. Everyone who writes a book uses an editor / ghost writer. Even if you wrote it all by yourself your publisher would edit it for publication. Not everyone is as accomplished as you are. did Obama write his book? or Bill clinton, Hillary Clinton? Don’t care if she pads her chest. Quite frankly topic is of no importance to me.

          • melinda

            No probuilt, most people who write a book, write it themsemves… unless perhaps they are a celebrity and not a writer. Palin didn’t write her books by herself. Sarah ran one of the fishing boats? What years? She would have to have acommercial license and that can be checked. Careful….

          • probuiltenterprises

            well it’s settled then. You are right about everything. Keep up the good work

          • Joy Daniels Brower

            Sounds to me, melinda, that you won’t be satisfied (if ever!) until you know the frequency of Palin’s bowel movements! Why not ask her when she entered menapause (sp?) while you’re at it? So many details of her personal and professional life have YOUR tits in a knot, it seems to me!
            But, what the heck, if it floats your boat, go for it, gal!
            BTW, it’s well known that the world’s most famous Community Organizer had HIS semi-autobiography, “Dreams from My Father,” written almost 100 percent by his old terrorist pal, Bill Ayres. Guess both of ‘em qualify as “celebrities” acc. to your guidelines!

          • probuiltenterprises

            you know all this how? Me thinks it’s just your “sour grapes” opinion

  • finishstrongdoc

    Might be from the Northern Dancer bloodline.
    Northern Dancer descendants dominate racing the world over

  • Lally

    I love your sense of humor and down to earth nature.

    • Beaverton

      Yes, she is just having a little fun with a joke. Dance to Bristol was foaled march 18, 2009 from Speightstown -Dance to Dawn. Bristol Palin was a competitor on the fall 2010 season of Dancing with the Stars so unless the horse’s owners were physic, this racetrack winner was not named for her.

      • lovingparentof2

        I don’t think she meant that the horse was named after her. She just liked the fact that it had her name in it. What’s wrong with that? My name is Caroline, but I don’t think that Neil Diamond was singing about me, but nonetheless, I love the song!!

      • SusieMae

        Did she make any absolute statements? Nope, she did not. She said it REMINDS her of something in her life.
        Only truly unhappy people make EVERYTHING negative and attackworthy.
        smh

      • jcinco

        “physic”?

  • Patriot

    Bristol should google the definition of narcissism.

    • Love

      You should google “love” and “bullying.” Then go find some happiness to enrich your life. Why are you so hateful, especially on perfectly positive things?

      I don’t know you story, but it sounds like it’s time for you to reflect on aspects of your life.

      The sad thing is, you will respond hatefully to this comment and further act like a child.

      • Patriot

        Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

    • melinda

      So true! No doubt the “Bristol” refers to a place, not a poseur.

    • Bree Merr

      I see your addiction to whinng continues. Narcissism is an inordinate admiration for self. She is having fun w/ the name of the horse… you however are addicted to an inordinate admiration for your own negative whiny, snarky outlook.. Narcissism is a dissorder but adding a continually negative, jealous., addictive whiney perspective toward another person is a dissorder upon a dissorder.. I know you can do better if you try… see I am POSITIVE about you … Come on Patriot .. give it a try… you can do it. Get over yourself!! You can do it!!!!

      • Patriot

        Bristol is a grown woman. Why do you feel the need to defend her constantly? Are you on the palin payroll? It sounds to me like you are a very insecure and unhappy person Bree. If I believed in anything I would pray to it that u might get some help.

        • Bree Merr

          Awee Patriot, did you fail at postitive. That is Ok everyone fails sometimes. Just don’t give up.. Giddy up… be positive.. giddy up Patroit…. you can do it.

          • Patriot

            Bree your sarcastic tone reminds me of Jesus!

          • Bree Merr

            . My Jesus is the perfect counselor with a best seller, who is available for counseling any time. He is free!! He did use harsh but truthful words for those that maligned and wanted to harm others, but for the most part he has encouraging words for those who want the truth that offers the best in life. You said in your prev.. post..”if I believed in anything I would pray to it that u might get some help”… He is my help and He is my counselor. I mean what I wrote (you chose to see sarcasm instead of humor)… I hope you learn to be positive toward others. If you CHOOSE to do so… I know you can do it.. especially with the help that is available from the best seller (7 billion +) ever published.. I wish you the best in your endeavor to be a positive person. Have a great weekend.

          • Melinda

            Jesus is a fascinating subject, even for non- Christians. I’ve been hearing a lot about the new book Zealot and am thinking of picking it up this weekend.

          • Patriot

            Whatever Bree….clearly you were being sarcastic and like most conservatives you are a hypocrite when called out on it. You have an unrealistic view of life…religion nurtures this. I’m sure you don’t believe in global warming and evolution either. And just so you know..JESUS didn’t write the Bible so it can’t be his best seller.

          • Patriot

            Fun Fact: Jesus COULD have written the bible…he had an actual human hand to do so….but no…others wrote it for him…all of his words are HEARSAY…and so much left up to interpretation. Don’t you ever wonder why Jesus wouldn’t have written down EXACTLY what he wanted to say..so his followers will know EXACTLY what his expectations are? Geez what a concept.

            Bree it’s not a question of “liking God and Jesus” or not. It’s a question of whether one believes in them or not.

          • probuiltenterprises

            I’m not even a little religious. I don’t believe in global warming. Oil and gas are renewable and if you ever looked thru an electron microscope at a simple cell let alone a T-cell you could not possibly concur that we evolved from anything.

          • probuiltenterprises

            So….patriot. Enlighten us with some facts backing up your assertions on global warming and evolution…..

          • Patriot

            Whats the point…someone who doesn’t believe in either is not worth wasting my time on. Sadly it will be too late to save generations for such foolishness and belief in myths and fairy tales. Thank god I don’t have any children to worry about. Bristol’s son on the other hand…good luck.

          • probuiltenterprises

            all I asked for were some real facts and not innuendo. That should be simple for someone so sure of himself. So just enlighten us a little . Show us the light

          • Melinda

            Don’t believe in global warning probuilt? And what are your credentials that you reject the findings of scientists around the world? And as for evolution, same question.

          • 1MiddleRoader

            Just curious–How are oil and gas renewable? Do you mean they can be made synthetically? And if you’re not religious, and don’t believe in evolution, how do you think human life came to be? Or is it just an unsolved mystery? (which is an acceptable answer). My personal unscientific opinion is that global warming is not an undisputed fact, but there is considerable evidence supporting it.

          • probuiltenterprises

            sorry it took so long. . I spent 14 years in deep well production. You will have to go back to your high school chemistry for a min. Remember the deep well Horizon disaster? That rig also drilled in the Tibor formation previously. To a depth of 33,055 ft. after dropping it’s bit through over 4,000 ft of water. Remember that carbon bonds readily to other elements but loves hydrogen. A simple carbon / hydrogen bond is easily acheived with pressure and heat. A carbon / hydrogen chain is just simple bonding of these simple hydrocarbons under pressure. When rock burns / melts it produced carbon and hydrogen sulfide. Water vapor forced over hot carbon under pressure produces methane. In PA. we have discovered very deep natural gas zones called the Marcellus and even deeper the Utica. There are even deeper ones that feed the two above them. we used to think oil came from plants and animals compressed by glacerial activity. Then that didn’t explain the vast amounts so we switched to plankton. However, for plankton ( which is 94% water ) to die and settle to the bottom of the ocean. then somehow bore it’s way thru 33,000 ft of terra firma past 9,600 lbs. of upward pressure and turn into oil didn’t pan out. Actually the original theory of where oil came from was the burning of the plates and the release of hydrogen / carbon which linked. The old timers had it right all along. By the way. To answer you next question. Why don’t the oil companies admit this when politicians cry that we are out of oil LOL…If you were sitting on a million barrels of oil and your choice was to let the powers that be promote 100 dollar a barrel prices …..or…..come out and admit that oil was renewable which would drop the price to 18 dollars a barrel. What would you do? Honestly…..those wells in the Tibor and the Macondo ( where the deep well Horizon burned ) each produced 165,000 barrels a day. Each well was 1/128 of our daily oil usage.

          • 1MiddleRoader

            Fair enough. Good info. I’ve always wondered how we got so much oil from dead plants and animals. Forgive me if I’m being stupid; this is not my area of expertise– Are you saying the earth is still producing oil and gas, or that we can create them by the method you described? If the latter, can it be made in usable forms/amounts with the technology we have or can easily develop? Solar energy is also renewable, but has turned out to be more expensive than originally thought, partly b/c of technology (and partly b/c China beat us to it.)

          • probuiltenterprises

            there are no stupid questions. God knows I’ve asked them if there were. The earth burns and re forms the plates under our feet constantly. Creating and re absorbing non stop.We could not duplicate that easily. the pressure vessel and energy needed would offset everything. The core of the earth produces over 4,000 degrees constant, melting the plates as others re form. Melting produces the carbon / hydrogen sulfide continuously. The bi product is sulfer dioxide and helium. Methane is also constantly produced continuously. Funny thing about oil is it is easily consumed in raw form by microbial activity. In the gulf it is difficult to locate any residual oil from that spill. God knows they have been looking for it. We would need a pressure vessel the size of Rhode Island to create that much oil and the fuel to heat it would be massive. Solar at best can produce 13 watts per sq. ft. providing the sun shines. I wouldn’t worry about China. Years earlier it was Japan we worried about…..then Tiawan, Korea then Mexico and now China. As China’s wages improve prices go up and we see an improvement in manufacturing equity. Believe it or not the U.S. still produces 22% of the worlds manufacturing. Been steady for 30 years: http://www.manufacturing.net/news/2009/10/us-still-world%E2%80%99s-largest-manufacturing-economy

          • probuiltenterprises

            I said I wasn’t religious as religion is a man made entity. I do however believe there must be a God. Scientists, physicists and scholars speak of the chaos of the universe yet something keeps it in check. It’s human nature to make something more complex I think.

          • 1MiddleRoader

            Thanks! Whoever said one should learn something new every day wasn’t whistling Dixie!

          • probuiltenterprises

            believe me, that’s how I learned. From old timers who did the hands on all their lives. And I asked some stupid questions.

          • melinda

            probuilt, careful about getting your “science” information from WND. You spent 14 years in deep well production? Well, even if you did, you are no scientist.

          • probuiltenterprises

            unlike you I don’t get my science from the internet. Tell me, how many wells and rigs have you been on? I have personally hydro fractured over 2,000 and have serviced thousands more. My science is from actually doing it and not reading about it. If you want to compare facts lets do it. What designates a scientist to you? Because they work in a classroom or lab and wear a white coat? Definition: the study of the physical and natural world and phenomena, especially by using systematic observation and experiment. How much have you done? Sadly you are the perfect example of how far our education system has fallen and failed. Do you even realize the pyramids and cathedrals were constructed by peasants who had no scientific education yet to this day we cannot explain how they were able to do that. the computer you use to berate others was designed along with the programming by two men who both dropped out of college and has no more scientific education than most of the people who are texting here. The peanut butter you eat was invented by a man who was not a scientist in the norm but spent his life hands on and doing, not reading.

          • melinda

            probuilt, working on a rig does not give you an understanding of the science behind oil or oil exploration. Do you even know much about sedimentology ? I have an undergarduate and graduate degree in the area. Your writings here indicate how little you know and understand about science.

          • probuiltenterprises

            I give up. You surely are the wisest sedimentologist this world has ever known. Personally your degree is a waste of money. Surely you knew all this even before some wise professor taught you. I’ll bet you read a lot of books on the subject. So. Teach someone else about the world because it’s very obious you are out of my league

          • melinda

            No probuilt, I am not the wisest sedimentologist. And no, I did not know all of this before going to university. My scientific knowledge was built up over the course of my academic career, starting with the basics and advancing from there, each level building upon the previous. You seem to not appreciate higher learning and do not appreciate how much you don’t know.

          • probuiltenterprises

            lady….you are not worth the effort. your whole education is book learned. from someone else who also was book learned by someone else who was book learned and on and on. Yet from what i see you know nothing. You have said nothing. you proved nothing. my guess is you got knocked up after college and never did get into the field and that is the underlying reason you have this hatred for Sarah because she succeeded where you just stagnated. you did not fulfill your plans and for some reason she did and that pisses you off

          • melinda

            No probuilt, unlike sarah palin I was not pregnant before I got married and I had a long career in my chosen field.

            You have no understanding of science. And sadly, you don’t even realize how much you don’t know

          • Melinda

            Middleroader, it’s not probuilt’s area of expertise either. He believes the Earth is about 6,000 years old. Inasmuch he cant wrap his head around sedimentary geologic processes. He gets all of this ” science” from young earth creationists. It is actually anti-science that starts with the belief that God made the Earth 6,000, there was a Great Flood and Noah built an ark and then tries to come up with how what we see in the geologic record could have been formed.

          • probuiltenterprises

          • probuiltenterprises

            1MiddleRoader: and as far as evolution is concerned. It is still a mystery.We lump adaption with evolution .Some things cannot be explained away. Many of the things we learn in college are taught by those who never actually worked in that field. They regurgitate what they themselves were taught by others who learned the same way. Many people hate the thought that something can’t be explained so they embrace anything that makes it easier to understand. I’ve been guilty of that only to realize I may have been led astray. Many turn to religion, a man made device that “helped” to explain away faith. There is a difference between the two. As far as global warming is concerned. We have been changing constantly for 10′s of thousands of years. Greenland didn’t get its name by mistake. Despite the rumors it was named as a ploy to attract other settlers scientists have discovered previous agricultural activity in what is not usable now. My thoughts: We as humans have a need to explain away everything we don’t understand and sometimes jump to conclusions. Undisputable facts, proven without question will convince me. Otherwise I’m always open to a good discussion. LOl

          • probuiltenterprises

            p.s. then again this could all be theory too LOL

          • melinda

            Actually probuillt we know that the Earth’s climate has been undergoing cyclic changes for hundreds of millions of years not just tens of thousands. We know this through the study of ice core, fossil and the geologic records. You know, science stuff. It’s a fact that the earth has been undergoing natural climate change for a long long time. It’s also a fact that human activity has had an effect on the climate since industrialization. There is natural climate change and there is manmade climate change. The former does not mean that the latter does not exist.

      • probuiltenterprises

        did you ever notice that liberals all seem to be narsissists. I think it’s part of their genetic disorder. so give them a break. They are handicapped

        • Patriot

          Said the conservative who doesn’t believe in “evolution”. Did you skip biology in school?

          • probuiltenterprises

            I did study biology. Did you know that we used to teach Piltdown man as a fact….turns out it was a hoax after we taught it in our universities for over 40 years. LOL The same thing happened during the seventies when “chicken little’s” ran around crying the earth is cooling down! Yup, global cooling. In truth the same loon who dreamed up global cooling ALSO came up with global warming. Back then Melinda, Scientists from all over the world agreed that the global cooling would destroy this earth as we know it. .
            So ….I want facts not bullshit.

          • probuiltenterprises

            patriot: what does studying biology have to do with anything.The evolutionary history of the species—which describes the characteristics of the various species from which it descended—together with its genealogical relationship to every other species is known as its phylogeny. Widely varied approaches to biology generate information about phylogeny. These include the comparisons of DNA sequences conducted within molecular biology or genomics and To this day have yet to connect specie to specie although there are similarities in genetic make up and similar links. Evolution does not explain the complexity of the individual make up physiologically speaking and is no closer to proving eveolution now than we were in 1838.

          • melinda

            probuilt, nice cut and paste “The evolutionary history…..molecular genetics or genomics”. It almost makes you sound like you have some science background until you finish it off with your own denial of evolution.

          • probuiltenterprises

            not denial. Facts …..which you don’t include in your statements because there are none. No denial at all. We are no closer to proving evolution than we were then.

          • melinda

            probuilt, prehaps you don’t understand the meaning of denial? Your reply is strange. And you clearly have little understanding of science.

          • probuiltenterprises

            ok Melinda I’m ready for my epiphany. Share the facts with me and the others here….You may be the one who shows me the light. Show me your “clear understanding of science”

          • melinda

            probuilt. there is a wealth of scientific knowledge gained since the 1800′s for you to digest. I encourage you to start reading. You have a lot of catching up to do, and it could take you awhile. How did you get so far in life without learning it? Or is it just that your religious beliefs are/were too strong to accept the science. I’m curious.

          • probuiltenterprises

            if you read carefully you would see I am not religious Science is theory until proven without a doubt. Nothing is settled concerning evolution to this day. Research scientists in the medical field cannot explain the complexity of a simple cell let alone a stem cell that propagates . Evolution has no answers to that. There are between 20,000 and 25,000 genes, some of which are shared by other living things. Just like there 118 known elements that are shared by every known compound. That doesn’t mean that that every compound “evolved” from that element. I prefer to base my beliefs on FACT and until it is a fact it’s just theory at best and fiction at worst.

            Probuilt, science has established that evolution occurred and is occurring. You are no scientist. By the way probuilt, how old is the Earth?

          • probuiltenterprises

            you win. obviously the world is brighter just having people of such great intelligence as you. God bless. Keep up the good work LOL

          • melinda

            The world is certainly brighter and better informed thanks to science, probuilt. Not surprising you won’t answer the question how old is the Earth.

          • probuiltenterprises

            you answer is simple as it is complex. There is no accurate way of knowing. I know you would love to catch me in a religious vs science situation but you are wasting your time. Radiometric dating is an inaccurate science. For instance: An example of how inaccurate this type of radiometric dating can be comes from Mt. St. Helens eruption in 1980. Scientists know when that rock solidified because they saw it happen. When they radiometric dated the new rock, the vresults came back as if the rock was millions of years old even though it was actually less
            then a year old. So as the renound sedimentologist enlighten us as to how old it is and remember dear. Use facts no innuendo

          • melinda

            Probuilt, would this be based on the findings of Steve Austin, a Creationist? You really have no idea about science do you?

          • melinda

            Your citing of the flawed findings of Young Earth Creationist Steve Austin suggests you believe the Earth is about 6,000 years old. Nuff said.

        • Melinda

          That’s so lame probuilt. Best you can do?

    • annes_123

      Considering how much PAC $$ Sarah Palin spent on “consultants” (200k + this year alone)… those speeches have their own $$ paid…
      I’m almost done with trying to wrap my mind around the very strange Bristol posts.
      I’m fully convinced every tweet and FB post by Sarah Palin is done by those consultants – while she is off doing who knows what in her big house with all her money.
      I don’t doubt Bristol is also paying someone to write these blog posts.

      It’s no wonder they both had their names copyrighted.
      They are “a brand” and pay for people to keep their “brand” alive by penning their posts for them.
      No sense dissecting something that isn’t even “real”.

      • Melinda

        I think it’s most likely that Sarah PAC pays for this blog to be written as well annes. It’s all part of Palin Inc.

        • annes_123

          Yep. She’s a political celebrity and as long as she’s not running for any public office her “PAC” is a personal fund to keep her brand alive. All she has to do is say something “political” and the PAC will pay for her rental SUV, $500 hotel rooms, thousands of dollars in airfare, food… and who knows what else.
          I’ve rattled my head wondering why so much of what she and Bristol “says” makes no sense, is full of holes, contradicts itself and raises red flags left and right.
          The only explanation is it’s not them coming up with this stuff but the folks they pay to “keep their brand alive”.

          • Days of Broken Arrows

            Isn’t this a bit much considering the subject was a lighthearted story about a horse? Should we bring Watergate and Abscam into the discussion too? How about world hunger?

          • annes_123

            So easy to just follow a thread of comments but… sigh
            It all started with a mentioned Bristol was a Narcissist.
            To base her postings on how she is in “real life”, I said, was silly because these postings aren’t even her own – most likely. Given the likelihood that her mama’s posts and tweets are her own are slim – due to 100′s of thousands of $$ paid to “consultants” who do what?.. odds are Bristol and her blog are in the same boat.
            Sarah and Bristol go about their lives and “make a living” off keeping their copyrighted image alive by having someone create and maintain their facebook pages and blogs.

            You’ve just taken another play out of the Palin’s handbook.
            Take something out of context and roll with it.
            Cognitive thinking is a good thing fyi.

          • probuiltenterprises

            Bristol is a narsissist? LMAO. Folks, who does this sound like? Rymes with annes_123..definition:
            1. a person who is overly self-involved, and often vain and selfish.
            2.

          • HW13568

            Prey on the Palins much?

      • No hate

        What’s strange about posting an opinion on random or interesting things? And you sound a bit loony with your strange assumptions. I ask, “what’s the point in ignorantly opining?” I could easily comment on awkward pictures of Obama or the scandals he has successfully shoved under the rug. I don’t because he, like me, is a human.

        All I can do is voice outrage at proven lies and disrespect for business owners (biggest segment of the country)

        • Melinda

          No hate, it’s not an opinion on random or interesting things. It’s all promotion for Palin Inc.

          • probuiltenterprises

            so Melinda…. your point is? Does Hillary promote. How bout Obama. Hell he spent 5 years promoting and hasn’t slowed down yet.

          • Melinda

            Glad you asked pro built! Big difference….. those people are politicians. It makes sense that PAC dollars goes to their campaign activities. Sarah Palin? Not a politician. Not for over 4 years.

        • annes_123

          Tell me why Sarah Palin needed to spend 200k+ in less than 6 months for “consultants”?
          She pays for her speech writers so can’t be for that.

          She has a journalist degree and all her fans swear she is highly intelligent and comes up with all her own stuff.

          Just provide some sort of something that would be cause for spending that much money for consultants.

          If it’s not to pay someone to post her Facebook notes or tweets.. then what is she paying them for?
          200k is a lot of money!

          • probuiltenterprises

            cause she can. Obama doesn’t pay for his consultants. You do…..if you work

  • vicky

    Bristol dear, not telling you how to run your excellent blog, but wish you would start blocking some of the ugly & cowardly commentators who post just to spew hate (wonder if they would do the same if they used their real names.) They are just downers & unfortunately detract from an otherwise uplifting & informative blog.( Kudos, to your supporters who have the stomach to address the ugly commentators, like Melory, but it still makes it hard to read through the comments & focus on your blog w/ pathetic commments that makes me want to apologize to you & the palin family on their ugly behalf.)

    • Melinda

      Vicky, sorry but Bristol doesn’t even write this blog. And Melory…. Well she’s been in hiding ever since she tried to claim a person from Africa who was black could not be called an African American if they got American citizenship. I suspect she’s feeling a bit….. what was the word?….. clueless.

      • Nunya

        Prove it you stupid c**t

        • Fanny

          Prove what nunya? That she doesn’t write thus? Well the writer actually signed her name originally to first post and people caught it before she realized it. And it’s pretty obvious sometimes it’s not Bristol. And of you type the writers name in a comment, your comment goes to moderation. I imagine she doesn’t want people to know she’s doing the writing about as much as the Pins don’t want it known as well.

  • probuiltenterprises

    LMAO. This is so astounding how this woman gets under the skin of liberals with such ease. And what’s even more astounding is she could care less and just keeps on doing what she pleases. And annes_123 , you really need a hobby man….seriously.

    • annes_123

      I’m on a public blog commenting just like yourself…
      uh…

      • probuiltenterprises

        she really bugs hell out of you….I like that. Makes my day when liberals get their knickers in a twist over Sarah and her family yet ignor the hypocrisy of those they admire..

        • annes_123

          Interesting how pure fantasy (taking a wild stab at what makes me tick) “makes your day”
          And I’m the one without a life?

          If that makes your day it’s no wonder the Palin’s have your undying devotion. Simple things…

          • probuiltenterprises

            did it occur to you that your statement makes absolutely no sense. You didn;t answer the hypocrisy. I really don’t care what makes you tick. I would have answered you earlier but have a business to run…..and I’m not the person who has Sarah Palin’s face on their blog so who is the one who is engrossed with Sarah? LOL

          • annes_123

            yeah! you saw my blog! :D

          • MountainClimber

            Speaking of simple or simple-minded, “Palins” is not possessive, you don’t need an apostrophe. If you read a book occasionally instead of trolling all day maybe you could learn to write a coherent sentence some day.

          • annes_123

            WOW considering how Ms. Palin butchers the English language on a regular basis.. this bothers you??
            Go climb a Mountain.

          • MountainClimber

            You comparing yourself to whip-smart Governor Palin is embarrassing annes. You don’t want people to think you’re delusional or notice how ignorant you really are, do you?

          • Scott Cameron

            Sarah Palin delivered the keynote at the “World Knowledge Forum” in Seoul, the largest forum in Asia along with Britain’s Prime Minister and she also spoke at the SALT Conference with VP Gore and Defense Sec Robert Gates, who played supporting roles to Sarah.

            But Annes writes on blogs like a 4th grader, impressive, ROFLH

          • probuiltenterprises

            that’s because it never made the media. No one heard about it. These people are still focusing on the SNL comment about seeing Russia from Alaska and attributing it to Sarah Palin. By the way, I could see Russia from Alaska and did it many times. Got old though

      • MountainClimber

        It’s not “just like yourself” it’s “just like you”
        Quit wasting time on here 24/7, get an education and you can begin with reflexive pronouns or maybe you’d better just start with your ABC’s instead.

        • annes_123

          just like yourself works just fine

          • MountainClimber

            You’re wrong again. Don’t you want to make something out of yourself or is it just too late?

          • Melissa Kelly

            Among liberal dimwits I’m sure it does, lol.

        • 1MiddleRoader

          At the risk of sounding like “grammar girl,” Annes’ use of yourself is not a reflexive but an intensive (emphatic) pronoun. While not standard usage, it is used in informal conversation (such as blogs). BTW, ABC’s is acceptable, but some grammar authorities recommend against using the apostrophe.

  • aflakygirl

    Ever heard that song “You’re So Vain” does she now think that “horse is about her.”
    And since I doubt she reads the news…lol…I bet those paid older-grandma-Palin-age so called “writers,” browse through the internet & post anything Palin. How else would a supposedly full-time-working-mother who has time to date and supposedly attend ASU, have time to search for stories that MIGHT be about her.
    I’m so convinced since most posts are very odd and some are just off the wall.

    • MountainClimber

      No flake, she just thinks it’s an interesting or amusing coincidence, but at your advancing age while referencing a song that’s over 40 yrs old, it’s obvious you’ve forgotten what it’s like to be a fun-loving 22 yr old.
      BTW, your name is very appropriate.

      • Melinda

        Did it not occur to you Mountain that she may have referred to a song over 40 years old because of the age of the actual writer of this blog?

        where’ve ya been?

        btw

        It is extremely clear to me that:

        1. the DC Status Quo has got America to the point of > 100% GDP in DEBT, and near destruction

        2. the US govt must be reformed, undergo a controlled IMPLOSION

        3. there must be an EXPLOSION of American Energy development asap

        (points 2 and 3 simultaneously)

        4. Neocon FP/Miltary Policy must be shelved in favor of a return to the policy developed during the Reagan years

        5. A Leader found who UNDERSTANDS the above 4 points and can be trusted to manage points 2, 3 and 4 successfully.

        NB:

        Points 2 and 3 cannot/will not happen unless the Manager involved is NOT4SALE …. NOT BEHOLDEN to anybody, … just The American People

        THEREFORE, we either need Sarah Palin or Ted Cruz as POTUS (I see nobody else who could succeed at the task required)

        if they sort out between themselves, who it will be, that is fine with me … if it is POTUS Cruz, he will need to hand over the WHOLE implosion/explosion thing to Madame Steel Spine, and rubber stamp her activities, since he has no experience in these management areas.

        He can take care of the rest of the POTUS job

    What never ceases to amaze me is how libturd idiots (but I repeat myself) even BOTHER to waste their time and energy following bloggers that they hate but love to mock. I only follow those with whom I share common ideas and ideals. Who has the time for anything else? And, of course, these same h8ers spend all their waking moments obsessing about Sarah Palin and her “vast” SarahPAC funds (she sure has a way with these mental midgets, doesn’t she? Lol…). And, just to show how smart they are (NOT!!), they assume that Palin pays mucho dinero to others to write her Facebook postings. Good grief! She can do THAT with both hands tied behind her back!!
    Did it ever occur to them that she pays top-level consultants to keep her informed about all the legislation being proposed in Congress, all the NOT-”phoney” scandals emanating out of the Ogime and its totally corrupt minions, and a very wide range of both domestic and foreign policy issues. She has regular briefings and she’s better informed than ALL the h8ters put together! Plus, of course, she uses their advice when shaping major speeches she gives across the country throughout the year. The h8ers don’t have a clue, do they?

    • Melinda

      Oh Joy I love when people take the time to wonder about others taking the time!

      And Sarah Palin actually ” has a way” with the poor saps that continue to give their hard earned money to her PAC so she can spend it on expensive travel, the consultants that she railed against at CPAC, and people to write her speeches and posts. Well, not all of them of course. It’s quite obvious which ones she writes. It’s all about promoting and funding Palin Inc. that’s all.

      • disqus_lJapfzCIUh

        Hey Melinda…you are smart…know it all….why don’t you start your PAC and see for yourself what the requirements and costs are to maintain before you continue to mouth off…then…you too can be promoting Melinda Inc. all the time…you are wasting your valuable time with hate and resentment for people you don’t even know…I cannot understand that after so many years of hate for the Palins, you still find the time or should say waste the time to continue the harassment..you could have written a book with the time wasted on insulting others…You try to get the “poor saps” to give you some of their hard earned money and see how long and expensive it is…You seem more interested in pursuing the Obama’s Alinsky tactics of harass…insult…persecute…and all to achieve your goals of trying to hurt people who works for a living….Insane waste of time…

        • Melinda

          The costs to maintain a PAC???? Seriously??? She gave $5k and spent $495k of the donations! If that was a charity she would be charged with fraud. She uses the PAC to promote and fund Palin Inc and pay for her travel.

          • annes_123

            The sad thing is her fans give themselves a pat on the back every time they can send in a cool $100.
            SUV rental = $500 alone.

            I pity those that can only send $25

            Why isn’t this super frugal, non-Diva lady staying at Motel 8?

            I’m questioning facts.. of course will be turned into me being someone just a burnin’ and twistin’ in my drawers seething with envy.

          • Melinda

            I love the way she used these donors hard earned dollars to pay her way to that piddly high school grad and to buy their gift bags.

            She uses PAC money to rent $500/day SUVs and top of the line hotel rooms and yet spends $271 on gift bags from Walmarts for 27 students – $10 per bag… of Walmart stuff!

            She digs deep into the PAC money to make sure she is riding high and yet pinches every penny of the PAC funds when it comes to “giving” to young Patriots.

          • probuiltenterprises

            you won’t convince them Scott. Their minds ( small as they are ) are made up. They hate Sarah and her family so much that any opportunity to rip on them they take

          • melinda

            No probuilt, Scott’s article won’t convince us because it doesn’t dismiss anything about the PAC’s dollars going for Palin Inc.

          • Joy Daniels Brower

            We were thrilled that Palin had the good sense to accept the enthusiastic invitation from Republic (WA) HS to speak at their graduation. It was a goodwill gesture on the part of everyone, and reports from the townspeople and high school family were very enthusiastic.. IMHO, all that was money VERY well spent. And since you don’t know Palin and how she operates (remember, she sold the State of AK’s private jet when she first entered office), Palin is actually very frugal and spends only what is absolutely necessary. Unfortunately, one of the biggest expenses is her private security detail – necessitated by the constant death threats from charming folks like yourself. Her family is NOT, apparently, off-limits to the deranged stalkers, such as melinda and others who have commented obsessively and hatefully on this particular blog. YOU try to live in that world for even a day and then report back to all of us how it REALLY feels!

          • melinda

            Frugal? Really Joy? Do you realize $1700 of Sarah PAC money was spend on two nights’ accomodation at the luxury Davenport Hotel for that high school grad speech? Sure I bet that was absolutely necessary! You go with that.

          • Joy Daniels Brower

            Man, Melinda, you’re certainly living in an alternate universe these days! First of all, I’m an old Northwesterner (first 50 years in Seattle) and know the state well. FYI,Spokane is anything but an upscale city and the Davenport (once one of only a couple hotels in that agricultural center town) is hardly “luxurious!” My God, have you EVER seen an actual “luxury” hotel? More to the point, have you ever booked a room recently in even the most middle-of-the-road hotel for under $200? The Palins probably had a great suite for under $500 (times 2 nights), the equivalent in SFran or NYC being about $1,200/night; but in your studious sleuthing, do you know how many rooms they actually booked? And didn’t they order ANY food for two nights?!? Doesn’t that UNDER $1,700 for TWO nights include more than just one room/suite? And where do you think her security detail is supposed to sleep? In the street? Wake up and smell the coffee!! In today’s world of travel (which is one reason I can’t afford it anymore!), you can’t get in and out of town in a nice hotel, etc. at such a truly reasonable price as they got at the Davenport in beautiful downtown Spokane!

          • Melinda

            Sorry Joy but you’re living in an alternate universe if you think Sarah travels with security detail. And yes, $1700 for two nights at the Davenport would NOT be frugal nor … What was it?…. ” Only what is absolutely necessary. Nice try.

          • Joy Daniels Brower

            Melinda, Tim Crawford, the Treasurer and “head” of SarahPAC, is required only to list major expenses in quarterly reports; details of that (travel) expense (e.g., food, drink, tips, phone calls, etc. etc.) are NOT required. Also, does it say, specifically that they booked only ONE room for two nights? I’d be curious to know (1) how you’re privvy to details that are NOT on the PAC report; and (2) more to the point, how you know the REAL Sarah Palin so intimately? Are you from a distant planet with super-human skills of knowledge and perception? If so, I’d say you’re wasting your time trying to dissect every penny that someone like Palin – who’s NOT exactly in your “inner circle” – spends on her family, her life and general living expenses. And speaking of “outrageous” hotel bills, what about that $3K per night that Joe “Stoli”/”Plugs” Biden spent not too long ago in Paris? Are you down with THAT expense for a joke of a VP who is actually on the public dole and has been all his professional life?

            Two people ( Todd went with her) would be one room, assuming the couple still share a bedroom Joy. Regardless of the incidentals, $1700k for two nights in Spokane is not… In your words….. ” frugal and only what is absolutely necessary”.

          • probuiltenterprises

            did any of you Einstiens notice the heading above the story? “Horsing around”….

          • Melissa Kelly

            Apparently it escaped their short attention span.

          • probuiltenterprises

            I guess they get their knickers in a twist and cant get it out. I just love the fact that this woman and her family affect them so much

          • probuiltenterprises

            they are pulling every bit of their argument from the daily beast which has recently been debunked. No point in arguing. it will not matter to them as they are one sided

          • melinda

            Um no probuilt, it was not debunked and the information actually comes directly from the FEC filing for Sarah PAC , subnitted by Sarah PAC

          • probuiltenterprises

            jealous are we LOL. Just curious where your man Obama got his money.

          • Melinda

            Obama got the money for his campaign from donors. He currently gets his salary and expenses paid by We the People, because we voted him in as President and that’s the job he’s doing. Sarah Palin on the other hand, hasn’t been in public service for over 4 years and is not running for office.

          • probuiltenterprises

            you really don’t understand do you? Anyone can start a political action committee. You don’t have to be running for anything. She does support other candidates with this Pac. Obama received large sums of money from Pac’s and even Pac’s from foreign countries.

          • melinda

            Oh I understand them probuilt. And so does Sarah Palin. She understands that they are pretty loosey goosey and she can get away with using one to fund Palin Inc. Stephen Colbert did a hilarious piece with Jon Stewart last year on starting his own PAC.

          • Val

            Now why doesn’t it surprise me that melinda gets all her news from Colbert and Stewart, I should have predicted that.

          • melinda

            Val, perhaps you aren’t aware that Stewart’s and Colbert’s shows are not news. They are comedy shows. And very funny.

          • Val

            I know who they are and although my friends in school watch them, they’re too left for me but thank goodness you know the difference between news and satire, I was worried for second.

          • melinda

            You worried for a second? Why? I noted that it was a hilarious piece.How would you jump from that to suggesting theirs were the only places I get my news? Sounds to me more like you might not have recognized the difference between news and satire. Too funny!

          • Joy Daniels Brower

            Don’t worry about melinda, she’s just fine with PMSNBC and CNN for her major news fix everyday; and if sh’e a bit high-brow, probably reads her bible, the NY Slimes, for good measure!

          • probuiltenterprises

            Val: do you see the parody here or lack there of? Melinda admits that Stewart and Colbert are making jokes ….yet…..when one of the Palins make a joke about a horse she rants incessantly! Is it me or does she not see where you took her?

          • melinda

            probuilt, I have not been ranting about the horse joke on this blog. And fyi, Stewart’s and Colbert’s jokes are clever. This Dance to Bristol thing is just lame. But to each their own on humor.

            And btw, I don’t think parody is the word you are looking for.

          • patriot

            Val must watch the factor and Sean hannity, they are comedy shows also right?

          • Joy Daniels Brower

            But in more than one survey, it was learned that the younger demographic (18-22, e.g.) got MOST of their “news” from Stewart & Colbert! The kids like to be entertained and think that biased “comedy” is news! Well, it can all be pretty much chalked up to “the dumbing down of America” and produces what Rush has rightly labeled, “the low-information voter.”

      • annes_123

        Such an amazing thing wisdom is.. eh Melinda?

        A public blog allowing public comments …. people comment.
        If you don’t like a comment you pass on passed it.
        It’s the way things work.
        Not rocket science.

        You’d think this public blog was private and part of a special club only allowing 5 hail Bristols in order to be privy to.

        And yet… someone sees a comment that doesn’t suit their fancy and they pull out their psychology card and start analyzing what type of person they are, what they believe, what’s going on in their head.

        This is a PUBLIC blog = comments from the PUBLIC

      • Joy Daniels Brower

        Gosh, Melinda, you’ve just reinforced that old adage, “Even a broken clock is right twice a day!” And, like most regressive trolls on this and other Conservative sites, you get SOME of the info/facts correctly: Namely, yes, at CPAC, Palin (as she frequently does) railed against the “permanent political class” – which includes the usual money-grubbing consultants, e.g., Karl Rove, inter alia. But the consultants Palin herself hires are not that kind; indeed, they’re very intelligent and very politically savvy, but mostly they just know a great deal about a wide range of relevant subjects and counsel Palin accordingly.
        Many of us not only don’t have much money, but don’t have the inclination or ability to give very much to SarahPAC. Instead, if/when she endorses a candidate, we donate directly to that candidate! But the money we do give to SarahPACc we do so with enthusiasm, ’cause we want to help her “spread the word ” as widely as possible and make it feasible for her to attend important meetings, conferences and events where her message will be given top billing and, in turn, receive very wide p.r. and attention. Even the lib media know that game – and they follow her every word – written, spoken or tweeted!

        • Melinda

          Hahaha. That’s awesome. So when Sarah specifically railed against consultants at CPAC she meant all consultants except hers, paid for by others. Too funny!

      Another desperate attempt by the failing Daily Beast to find a smoking gun, like in 2011 combing through 25,000 of Governor Palins’ emails which proved what an ethical, hardworking person she is or having some moron move next door to the Palins to spy on them. The Beast must really be in trouble, grasping at straws while loser JohnnyRussia tries to drum up traffic for their ludicrous site.
      Breitbart exposes the inaccuracies of the Daily Beast’s article below >
      http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Journalism/2013/08/02/Daily-Beast-Harasses-Private-Citizens-Who-Donated-to-Palin-s-PAC

      • Melinda

        Grasping at straws? Mountain, They are not the only ones pointing out what’s going on with Sarah PAC. And that article you cited does not discount their findings. The PAC spends very little if what it collects from donors to actually help fund candidates. Almost all of it goes to support Palin Inc. And Sarah Palin is not a politician and hasn’t been for over 4 years.

        • Scott Cameron

          Poor trashy Daily Beast, another lib site about to bite the dust as they struggle to remain relevant by using Governor Palin to attract attention.

          • Scott Cameron

            As explained in the article, the first half of 2013 was a political off-year in which there were few elections, but Palin’s PAC did make a $5,000 contribution to Jason Smith. He was the conservative Republican that won a special election in MO in June by a hefty margin, 67% to 27% and that’s called “Palin Power” and that’s why people contribute to SarahPAC.com, get it?!

          • Melinda

            You do realize, don’t you that the Sarah PAC contribution came after it would have made much difference to his campaign? And it doesn’t change the fact that 1% of the funds were spent to support candidates and 99% to support Palin Inc. In 2012, an undeniably huge election year, that was similarly 10% and 90% I believe. Let me know if you want the exact figures and ill get them for you… But something tells me you don’t Scott.

          • Val

            The exact figures are readily available and posted on numerous sites. Didn’t you know that either melinda or did it just slip your mind?

            Relax melinda, SarahPAC is the most transparent PAC in existence. As a frequent supporter, I couldn’t be more pleased with Sarah’s 75% success rate in 2010 and 2012 compared to Karl Rove’s 1%, in spite of the 100′s of millions Rove squandered in 2012.

            Sarah Palin endorsed upwards of 100 candidates in 2010 and almost all of her candidates won. The momentum built by Sarah Palin saw the largest turnover since Reconstruction after the Civil War. In state houses, over 600 Dems lost their seats.
            In 2012, Sarah was batting 1000 until MO when the Dems pulled some shenanigans to get Akin elected in the primary. Of course if Palin’s candidate Sarah Steelman had won the primary, she would have beaten McCaskill.
            In March at CPAC, a grateful Sen Ted Cruz stated he wouldn’t be in the Senate if it weren’t for Sarah Palin!

            Now let’s examine why you trolls are sooooooo concerned about SarahPAC. Could it be that you are scared to death about Sarah’s impact on the upcoming 2014 elections? (Rhetorical question, no answer is necessary)
            Sarah Palin is funded by everyday people and therefore she cannot be bought and her PAC is very effective which is why libs like you and RINOs want to discourage donations. You’ve got your troll-work cut out for you melinda, so long.

          • melinda

            None of that changes the fact that her PAC spends almost all of the money on Palin INc. and not on supporting actual candidates for office. In the most recent filing it was 1% vs 99%. In 2012 it was around 10% vs 90%. And of course I know it’s widely publicized. Why would I want that to “slip my mind”. The figures support what I’m pointing out. You have strange arguments Val

          • Val

            You have difficulty melinda comprehending the facts or else you deliberately distort them. It’s understandable why you are so fearful of Sarah Palin’s influence and her focus on flipping the Senate and maintaining the House in 2014.

          • melinda

            Val, I am not fearful of Sarah Palin. She is no longer a politician and by all appearances, has no interest in being one again on a national level. And even if she did, she is too unpopular and not popular enough.

            And I have no trouble comprehending the facts and I do not distort them. You on the other keep trying to distract from the fact that her Sarah PAC spends almost all of the donations it collects on Palin Inc rather than supporting actual political campaigns.

          • Val

            You have delusions of being a mind-reader too? Amazing that you are the only person outside of Sarah Palin’s circle of trusted friends and advisers who knows what her future plans are or is it just wishful thinking on your part?

            But yet another lie from melinda. Golly, they are really stacking up! Lie after lie after lie after lie after lie . . . . .
            FYI, Sarah Palin has a higher approval rating than the current POTUS and her favorability rating is the highest it’s been since 2009 at 55.14%. As a potential AK Senate candidate she also towers over the others with 65%.

          • melinda

            Val, Palin might be the favored candidate amongst AK GOP candidates, but polls are showing that she would lose the election.

            Wishful thinking? Hell no! I’d love it if she were to run for President in 2016. It would be a sure win for the Dems. But she’s not doing anything to position herself for that and hasn’t done so since quitting 4 years ago.

            Still waiting for you to point out an actual lie Val.

          • Val

            It’s quite simple melinda. First read what you wrote, then read my follow-up response for the correction to your lie.

            Just checked the most recent poll, “If Palin is the AK Senate nominee, she’s favored to win.”

          • melinda

            Sorry Val, but I don’t see any recent poll that finds Palin to be favored to win the Senate seat for Alaska. You’ll need to provide the link to the poll.

          • melinda

            Still waiting for you to point out an actual lie Val. You haven’t.

          • 1MiddleRoader

            I haven’t seen any polls saying she’s favored to win the election, although there may be outlier poll that you saw. While she would be favored to win the GOP nomination, she trails Begich by double digits. One poll I saw says only 16% of Alaskans want her to run, and another says 47% of Alaskan voters consider her to be Alaskan(!). I think that’s an unfair distraction which Begich encouraged, but perhaps karma for her tacit support of Obama birthers. Her unfavorability hovers around 57%. Of course, all this could change if she seriously threw her hat in the ring. – I think many folks, myself included, don’t really think she’ll run.

          • Val

            Oh my, caught lying again melinda! Jason Smith issued this press release in early May a month before the election:
            “Jason Smith announced the endorsement of Governor Sarah Palin. Smith sought out Governor Palin’s endorsement of his commonsense conservative campaign.”

            “Governor Palin is a true conservative who is not afraid to stand up against political establishment . . . I am honored to have Governor Palin’s support in the June 4th Special Election.”

          • melinda

            Caught me” lying again” Val? Excuse me, but when have you caught me lying before? And no, that is not a rhetorical question.

            And this has not been a lie either. The Sarah PAC contribution came on May 14, less than 3 weeks before the election. You really think the $5k donation made much difference to his campaign at that point?

          • Val

            You bet it did. It was a signal to people that Governor Sarah Palin wholeheartedly supported Jason Smith. As Scott Cameron posted, Smith then won 67% to 27%.

          • melinda

            Wow, “wholeheartly supprted” by tossing in $5k at the last few weeks! And tell us Val, how do you know that this “wholehearted support” from Palin was what brought him the win. Was he trailing before her support? Because he would have to be for this contribution/endorsement to have made a difference (in a positive way). Was he?

          • Val

            Another FYI for an untruthful low-info,
            $5,000. is the max a PAC can contribute.

          • melinda

            .. to a single campaign in a cycle. Fortunately for Palin and her “consultants” there is no limit on how much they can spend on themselves!

          • melinda

            I’ll help you out here Val. No, he wasn’t trailing before Palin’s support. It’s a solidly red district and he was expected to easily win. He had lots of support and endorsment before Sarah Palin’s. He was so much of a sure thing that an article was written a few days before Palin’s contribution about how the NRA was missing a good opportunity to make a big endorsement of this sure win so that they could later claim it as a show of support for gun rights. Hmmm….. almost makes you wonder if one of Sarah’s consultants read that article.

            But perhaps you already knew this.

          • Val

            What a humble guy Jason Smith must be, releasing a press statement saying he “sought” Sarah Palin’s endorsement yet you believe he would have won without it. Gosh, I wonder why he would have done that if he didn’t need it, but wait, I forgot you’re more politically savvy than anyone else, lol. How many elections have you won?

          • melinda

            Why did he release that Val? Because he was already a big fan of hers. Did you not know that? He posted a photo after her CPAC appearance, doing the silly Big Gulp pose. Oh you can bet he was tickled by her endorsement. It doesn’t mean it made a difference to his win though.

          • Val

            You certainly are obsessed with everything Palin! You even follow the people who did the liberty pose, lol.
            The question is, since you tend to make-up everything, which is a polite way of saying you lie, are the peeps who pay you to troll getting their money’s worth when you are actually a poor clueless soul and unable to state any facts?

          • melinda

            I follow the people who did the liberty pose? No sorry Val, that’s easy to find when looking up Smith and Palin.

            Still waiting for you to point out an actual lie. You keep making this claim but fail at backing it up.

          • Val

            You just wrote Jason Smith did the “pose” so you must have been following the liberty deal on Twitter!

            You were previously too lazy to even look up the NYT article so I’m not going to peruse over 150 comments to isolate each and everyone of your lies for you.

            Using Rules for Radicals 7, 8, 11, and 12 are we melinda? You can google for links, I need to focus on my work, so take care trolling it’s a jungle out there.

          • melinda

            Val, I’m not even on Twitter. And no, you don’t need to be following anyone to see that he did the pose.

            Too lazy to look up the NYT notation that they redacted some offensive language in the Palin emails? Their redaction has nothing to do with the fact that the State of Alaska heavily redacting the Palin emails before finally, after a very lengthy delay, releasing them to the press. I’ll say it again for you Val, because you seem to be having a hard time understanding:

            The NYT redaction of some offensive language has nothing to do with the fact that the State of Alaska heavily redacting the Palin emails before finally, after a very lengthy delay, releasing them to the press

          • Melinda

            Sounds more to me Scott like Breitbart and C4P are struggling to defend against the reporting on Sarah PAC by Daily Beast and others.

      • Melinda

        And I love it when you bring up those emails!!! You mean the ones that took forever to release and when they were they were so heavily redacted?

        • Scott Cameron

          Yes, the 24,199 emails which were released by the state of AK, painted a picture of Governor Palin as “a conscientious, humorous and humane woman slightly bemused by the world of politics.” The “left-leaning editors who dispatched teams of reporters to Juneau to pore over the emails in the hope of digging up a scandal” viewed the result as “a rather poor return on their considerable investment.” In other words, the scheme backfired on libs, too bad.

          • melinda

            Scott, as you may or may not be aware, the emails were delayed and delayed by the State and when they finally were released they were very heavily redacted. Of course there was nothing there anymore. Anything that was there was withheld. No surprise.

          • Scott Cameron

            Just can’t get the facts straight, can you? The New York Times, Washington Post and other lib media outlets pleaded for help from their readers to investigate the emails because they were so extensive and there was so much content to cover. They hoped to expose a scandal, but were unsuccessful. The NYT redacted the emails themselves to remove offensive language, google it yourself. We’re not here to educate low info, deceitful libs, but we know it’s your job to smear Sarah with your lies, so carry on losers.

          • melinda

            Seriously Scott? Are you really unaware that the State of Alaska, lead by Palin lapdog Parnell, heavily redacted those emails before releasing them to the press. Really? You didn’t know this?

          • Val

            Seriously Melinda? Are you too lazy to look up the NYT article about how they redacted the emails? Or doesn’t that quite fit with your agenda?

          • melinda

            Val, I don’t really care if the NYT chose to redacted offensive language from the Palin emails before releasing them.(I haven’t heard such a thing but it really just reflects badly on her administration, doesn’t it?).

            That has nothing to do with the fact that the Alaska government itself heavily redacted the emails during a very lengthy delay before finally releasing them to the press.

          • Val

            The emails were “sent and received emails.” Weren’t you aware of that little detail either? Governor Palin was not responsible for what other people wrote to her.

            The reason you “don’t really care if the NYT chose to redact offensive language before releasing them” is because it negates your smear.

          • melinda

            It does not “dispute my smear” Val. The NYT redacting offensive language does not mean that the Alaska government did not heavily redact the emails during the very lengthy delay prior to releasing the emails to the press.

          • 1MiddleRoader

            As Wkileaks has shown, Sarah P. used private email accounts to avoid Alaskan freedom of information (FOIA) laws. I disagree with some of my liberal colleagues in that I believe that while legal, the requests were a bit of a witch hunt. While I’m no expert in Alaska politics, I also think she was a pretty good governor, although I think had she stayed in office for the full term, her favorability would have declined. My fascination with Palin is that something seemed to have happened to her during and after her VP run–it’s almost like she’s a different person now. In one of the emails released under FOIA, she says climate change should be a “top priority” for Alaska; now she says, “climate change, my gluteus maximus”. She supported a “path to citizenship” in 2008; now she doesn’t even support the Dream Act. She was unequivocally in favor of capping carbon emissions in 2008; now, not so much.
