Meet the Real Sarah Palin

By now I am sure that many have learned some revealing things about Sarah Palin, but did you know that while Palin was mayor of Wallisa she tried to have books banned from the library because of “inappropriate” language in them. It shocked one librarian who was threatened with termination by Palin if she did not go along with it.

Sarah Palin is so extreme in her religious views that she has stated that she believes the war in Iraq is a task from God.

In her speech last night she claimed that she said thanks, but no thanks to the bridge to nowhere, but in 2006 while running for governor she supported the bridge to nowhere remarking that Alaska should take advantage of the earmarks while our congressional delegation is in a strong position to assist.”

Sarah Palin is extreme in her views, and lied again in her speech last night concerning her position on the bridge to nowhere. This is what McCain wants a heartbeat from the presidency, a lying extremist.

  1. Actually, she didn’t try to ban books – at least according to the librarian in the story. She asked her how and if banning books could be done because her constituents were concerned about the language in the books. They have also verified that no one ever asked for books to be banned and no list (contrary to internet reports) was ever produced.

  2. I am astounded by the way Sarah is holding herself out to the voters as a person who is a firm believer of, and lives a “Family Values” life.
    Mrs. Smalltown, down-home, church-going, God – fearing, The Bible is the Word of God and is to be taken literally Republican cadidate.
    Unless I am mistaken, Sarah Palin has a baby that was born this Sping. I felt great empathy with her when I read that her baby has Down’s Syndrome. While I have never believed that a womans place was limeted to staying at home having childern & caring for them, for her to be away from her newborn child so that she can advance her political career is in extreme conflict with the image that the Republicans are trying (and sucseeding) at selling to the voters – particularly the right-wing religious extremeists.
    When a couple has a baby, there is only one priority – taking care of your child. If that means that you have to pass on a job opportunity in order to give the time and care to your child, that is what you do. Every child needs both parents, not a nanny, not a part-time, when you find the time mom or dad.
    “Family Values”? You might want to take a little closer look at yourself in the mirror Sarah. Are you looking after your child, or yourself?
    Just in case you might have missed the point here…the love, time and devotion that you give a child is more important than any benifit that you perhaps becoming V.P. can ever bestow upon our Nation… or yourself.
    Which person needs has the higher priority – the parent, or the child?
    What are we seeing in Sarah Palins’ behavior? Her “Family Values” and her comittment to her baby… or is she serving her own personal “needs”?

    Today’s Lesson : The actual meaning of the word “liberal” – right out of the dictionary.
    1. Broad-minded; tolerant. 2.Favoring civil libeties, democratic reforms, and the use of public resources to promote social progress.

    Personally, I would not want to be known as a person who is narrow-minded, is against civil liberties & social progress.
    So will someone please explain to me how the word “liberal” has almost become a four-letter word these days? Maybe I am missing something here ?

    All I know is that I gave up the career that I had dreamed about since I was a five-year old boy, worked harder than I have ever worked before in order to make my dream a reality, & did it against almost overwhelming odds… only to walk away from it – willingly – because one of my two children was born needing some extra love and there was not enough time for both my child and my career. I am not saying that I know what “Family Values” are all about, but I sure know what they aren’t! don’t “talk the talk”, unless you actually “walk the walk”. To do otherwise is to be know as a hipocrite.

  3. I am an independent and the RNC was so negative I will never vote for McCain! The Republicans did this to themselves!

    Comment by James — September 5, 2008 @ 2:22 am

  4. @Mike,

    Ronald Reagan was the person who turned the liberal into a four letter word. He started it in the 1980 election.

  5. I agree with Michael on the issue of family values. In Canada, women are given 1 year maternity leave for a reason and a 6 months old baby who is not 100% healthy needs his mom. I don’t believe a women’s place is in the home but is concerned about a woman neglecting her home for her job. I am also concerned that she may have neglected her older children in the past due to her carrear as evidenced by her pregnant teenage. While we all know teens tend to do various crazy things not withstanding the values thought by their parents, they also do things to get their parents attention when they don’t feel they have the love and attention they need. Could it be, mom Sarah was too busy being mayor and govenor that she neglected her daughter, who is now crying out for attention in this way?

    In this day and age where info on birth control and sex education is forced on kids in schools, a smart 17 year old (assumiing she is smart) who gets pregnant, is a 17 year old who is crying out for attention, attention of her mom. She will definitely not be getting that attention now, neither will her 6 months old son.

  6. Sara Palin is an opportunist who is ready to abandon her new born baby with down syndrome and pregnant teen when she needs her the most. Why would I trust anything she says? Country begins with family and if you can be trusted with children that God has given you, then I would trust you.

  7. Mike: Maybe you should take a little time from being the paragon of fatherhood and go back to school so you can learn how to spell. Or here’s a thought use spell check ( ex. sucseeding, limeted,hipocrite). Good Lord, please I’m surprised you knew how to spell liberal, Oh thats right you looked it up in the dictionary.

    But lets get to the point. How dare you judge anyone’s lifestyle or the choices they make. You shouldn’t judge unless you’ve walked a mile in their shoes. I don’t understand how she’s coming under so much scrutiny regarding her choice to become V.P. How come this was never an issue with all the other male presidents who had small children? JFK for example. What the father figure isn’t as important as the mother figure. I tend to disagree. However, no one asks them how their children will suffer due to the career choices the made.

    Get a life!!

  8. When someone in authority wants to take away the rights of women to choose , why should we not then judge her choices? I think women are capable(very) to work and have a family but Sarah Palin is too fanatic to lead a nation. We think the Taliban are extremist, did anyone not see and hear the hate the republicans had for those who choose to believe and live differently? If Alaska is so wealthy why not share their riches with the rest of the Americans especially those now unemployed?

  9. I think the reason why Obama even with his lack of experience was able to get so much support in this campaign is because of his transparency. If you listen to his talks, you could clearly see well his intentions, his goals, his political stand for this country. And it’s quite good and addresses a lot of points. Barely, did he use any words to attack the McCain campaign instead he kept to the real stuff people wanted to hear, what he can do for the country. I mean you clearly see his consistency. And me, as an Independent have to give him kudos for that. I don’t care about experience anymore…people who says they have the “experience” have been running this country for a long time, and not that much good happened. Now I look at this McCain/Palin campaign and all I hear 75% of the time are attacks on the opposition, generalized statements about issues, avoiding questions that talks about the real issues of the country. They keep telling us how they’re better than the other. Especially this Palin, I don’t care where she’s from, her gender, her credentials, her experience or who her family is, I care about what she can do for the country and so far I haven’t heard from her addressing any issues except energy and attacks on Obama. This is clearly negative campaigning. I think my fellow Independents should look through this and consider this an act of desperation to get undecided votes. Right now I’m considering going for Obama because he has clearly presented me his plans for this country and I do agree with most of his intended policies. For the McCain/Palin side, please I would like to get as much information from you as I can because so far your stand on this country’s issues have been vague to me. It’s a lot harder to get clearer info from you guys than Obama’s. I keep finding attack ads and speeches so often that my eyes are bleeding already.

    So until McCain/Palin clearly states their stand, plans, and policies on the issues of this country instead of tapping on the experience and gender card, I am siding with Obama.

  10. Sarah Palin lied about the selling the corporate jet to e-bay for a profit. It was never sold in e-bay and was bought by a republican fundraiser for a loss. It’s all bullshit!! For someone new to national politics, she sure learned quickly from Maccain-Bush’s political tactics

  11. Are the American women so dumb that they can’t see how the wool was pulled over their eyes? After the GOP could not find a suitable named VP, their “Grumpy Old Men” got scared when they saw the overwhelming togetherness of the Democratic supporters and decided to use (pimp) this woman so that McCain can continue Bush’s ineptitude legacy? Yes, this unknown was played. GOP took advantage of Hillary’s dissatisfied supporter and used a woman to energized the Republican base. I think they underestimate the intelligence of women. They don’t get it. We know what time it is. We VOTE on ISSUES not FEAR.
    BTW, I want to see Palin talk more about the issues and not what a maverick McSame is, and the continuation of the war. Let’s stop the long talk about nothing. Even Bush’s administration is now using DIPLOMACY, NOT AGGRESSION WITH OUR ENEMIES. Check out Rice’s historic visit to Lybia. Stealing Barack’s plans indeed! Good for Bush, at least the last four months out of 96 months will improve his LEGACY for the history books.

  12. At first I thought McCain chose Palin to attract women voters and I thought it was a ridiculous idea because first of all, why would I vote for a woman just because I am a woman? I look at the issues and her views on the issues are not the same as mine on most. I was originally a Hillary supporter (not because she was a woman), but always also thought Barack Obama would make a good president after listening to his speeches and debates. He probably chose her to attract the women voters but I think the main reason was to attract Evangelicals because most of them do not like McCain. That group has had a great deal of impact on the outcome of elections in the past. I respect their views, but in my opinion, this is just a game that McCain and his campaign is playing. I hope Evangelicals, woman, and others don’t fall into this trap. I hope people don’t vote for him just because his VP has the same religious views as they do.

  13. I think Sarah Palin is a very scary woman.

    Comment by Alice — September 6, 2008 @ 6:11 pm

  14. McCain thinks HE chose a Vice Presidential running mate, little does he know that the far right has appointed a Nurse Ratched to watch over him. If I were him I might get a food taster.

  15. Something you all need to see!!!

    Comment by Barb058 — September 7, 2008 @ 2:53 am

  16. Why is Palin not giving interviews? I can not believe she read a spped that was written for her and now she is going around with McCain shaking hands but not allowing questions. What is she hiding? Is that the person we want for VP or President? Wake up America.

  17. Semms to me Michael C Gary you know EXACTLY what “Family Values” are all about – as you ACTED on them and didn’t TALK about them – KUDOS to you!

    Comment by Greg — September 10, 2008 @ 6:22 am

  18. “It shocked one librarian who was threatened with termination by Palin if she did not go along with it.” If she is going to threaten staff with termination at the local level, and this whole fiasco with her sister-in-law’s husband, sounds like a nightmare waiting to be voted for. Just imagine what she’l do on the FEDERAL level when she has some “real” power! Sounds like an impeachment waiting to happen. Hopefully, America has the sense to vote No. My hope is that there are ENOUGH people with ENOUGH sense to vote responsibly against her/them. Course we get what we “pay” (vote) for. Just look at our current admin. I didn’t vote for him and will be glad to see him go.

  19. Sorry – even CNN had to admit that all you wrote above if not true. Sorry to burst any bubbles. When CNN says “we made a mistake” (which is extremely rare) you can believe it.

    Hey, the debates are coming up, lets just see how Joe does against the Govorner and then see what we can write. If she fails, I’ll take whats coming, but I don’t see that happening. Sorry.

  20. Curt,

    Hate to tell you this, but only the first one has been disproved. She did support the bridge to nowhere in her 2006 gubernatorial campaign, although she did flip flop on it afterward. However, she took $120 million of the earmarks and did not give them for this bridge.

  21. Curt,

    You may want to start reading the Anchorage Daily News.
