    Assailin' Palin: Complaints deluge gov.

    If anyone knows what it is like to be Sarah Palin right now, it is James 'Dan' Quayle.


    Alaska Gov. Sarah Palinís life has changed in a myriad of ways since she became the Republican vice presidential nominee last August, but one aspect of her newfound fame has been more bracing than the others: Since entering the national spotlight, Palin has been inundated by ethics complaints, most of them filed against her after she agreed to become Sen. John McCainís running mate. The complaints run the gamut, ranging from the governorís use of state funds and staff to the workings of her political action committee and even to a jacket she wore to a snow machine race involving her husband.

    Itís difficult to pinpoint exactly how many complaints have been filed because the state doesnít keep count and the complaints are kept confidential by the attorney generalís office unless the state moves forward with a public accusation of wrongdoing. But in total there have been more than a dozen, and most of those have surfaced in the last seven months.

    That much is clear because the complainants have a habit of notifying the media and bloggers each time they lodge a grievance. Itís evidence, say Palinís defenders, that there is a clear political component to them.

    ďAs we've been saying, the number of ethics complaints filed against the governor and her staff ó as well as the tortured logic they contain ó continue to constitute the most disturbing trend in Alaska politics,Ē said Palin spokeswoman Sharon Leighow in a recent statement after one ostensibly confidential complaint was sent to the Anchorage Daily News and other news outlets.

    Again, what we're seeing is a morphing of the virus that caused Bush Derangement Syndrome among the left into a new form of the disease which focuses on Sara Palin. But this means we can quickly dismiss all the accusations as symptoms of Palin Derangement Syndrome.

    Simply put, the Left is insane.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Two can play at this game. We have a Democrat governor here in Oklahoma.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    I am amazed by the degree of fear that the Dems have for Palin...
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    The more gargage the left throws at Gov. Palin, the more I am convinced that she IS the WOMAN for 2012.

    Go Sarah!!!
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    The Dems fear Palin because she DARES to speak the truth about THEM.

    Usually GOP'ers are chicken, (example; McCain says nobody is allowed to use Obama's middle name).

    Palin doesn't allow the dems to control her and they cannot stand it.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    The libs who deride hate speech and pass laws giving special groups,special protection are in involved in character assassination on Palin on steroids.The libs can't win on ideas so they turn to ginning up hate instead.

    Sliming Palin: The L.A. Times Version

    "The N.Y and The L.A. Times as 'Black Holes' Shrinking Fast !"

    Times article I had missed about Sarah Palin shopping around a book deal. The article drips with venom towards Palin. Little commentary is necessary; for the most part, all that is needed to demonstrate the reporterís bias is to simply quote the article.

    If you thought being governor of Alaska and a new grandmother would be enough to fill the cold, dark nights in the Arctic state, you underestimate Sarah Palin, the failed vice presidential candidate.

    If you thought the bankruptcy of its parent company and the prospect of yet another round of layoffs would be enough to occupy the minds of L.A. Times reporters, you underestimate the hatred they have for Sarah Palin over at that failing newspaper.

    Throughout the campaign, Palin was kept under wraps by staff, and her appearances were carefully orchestrated in the failed hope of protecting her from ridicule. Frequently when she did engage the media, she appeared ill prepared at best and hopelessly naive at worst. Her comments on Russia and politics were a steady diet for late-night comedians.

    There is some truth to this, but the whole truth is a little more complex than revealed by reporter Muskal.

    Iím not really interested in revisiting the debate over who is blame for Palinís poor performance in a couple of interviews. I think she got screwed by unfair questions and editing in her interview with the insufferably smug Charlie Gibson.

    But I think Palin had only herself to blame for flubbing some simple questions floated by the leftist bubblehead Katie Couric.

    Ultimately, Palin was under a lot of pressure, with Big Media teaming up with promiscuous Wikipedia-quoting muttonheads from the Atlantic to question the parentage of her children, Saturday Night Live (aided by the aforementioned deceptive Gibson editing) recreating Americansí memories of what Palin really said about Russia, and scumbag McCain advisors who overmanaged her. At the same time, all the unfairness aside, she turned out to be less ready for prime time than many of us had hoped based upon her impressive performance in Alaska.

    The truth is a little less cartoonish than the simplistic version offered by Muskal of the Amazing Shrinking and Imploding L.A. Times. I guess offering a version of events lacking in subtlety and (dare I say it?) nuance might be Mr. Muskalís attempt to appeal to his newspaperís leftist base in Los Angeles.

    During the campaign, there were charges that Palin tried to censor books at the Wasilla, Alaska, library when she was mayor of that community. Though the reports turned out to be overblown (she did ask the librarian about removing some books and then dismissed her along with other officials), the ink stuck to her, helping with conservatives and hurting with other voters.

    Before Sarah Palin, the GOP had Dan Quayle


    Like 20 years ago, a young conservative is plucked from obscurity to bolster the ticket's election chances.


    If anyone knows what it is like to be Sarah Palin right now, it is James Danforth Quayle.

    "It sure sounded familiar," Dan Quayle chuckled, his voice coming over the telephone line from Phoenix, 20 years and a lifetime away from the explosion of shock and negative news stories that greeted his ascension to the vice presidential nomination, as it has hers.

    McCain campaign strategy takes on a... Media on the defensive over Palin...McCain vows own kind of change

    The parallels from two decades ago are eerie: The Republican nominee, older and distanced from the shock troops of his own party, threw aside caution to embrace an unlikely running mate. Just as Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin was plucked from obscurity by John McCain, Indiana Sen. Quayle was delivered by George H.W. Bush.

    Quayle, like Palin, was supposed to hook Bush to his party's conservative wing, as skittish then about Bush as it is now about McCain. He was supposed to usher in a new generation of Republicans -- he was 41 to Palin's 44 -- and the strategy was supposed to work particularly well in the industrial Midwest. He was supposed to splay the Democrats and their cultural elitism with his small-town authenticity, just as Palin is supposed to do now.

    It worked well for about 10 seconds. He bounded onstage in New Orleans to accept Bush's offer, kissed Barbara Bush, wiped off her lipstick, grabbed George H.W. Bush by the arm and started talking and sweating, as excitable as a new puppy. Things rapidly headed downhill.

    Fear causes people to do strange things. If the left is starting to attack possible 2012 candidates this early, they must be pretty damn sure that the magic negro will be a one term wonder just like the peanut farmer.

    Do you really not see that name as racist?

    Would you say it in front of black person--conservative or liberal?

    I only see the name 'magic negro' infrequently on general discussion forums--however, I would imagine it shows up more often on white supremacists boards or other forums promoting racism.

    I'm wondering if you think your belief that 'negro' is not a term with racist overtones puts you in the majority or minority of conservatives.

    Re: whether or not you would use the term in front of a black person--this doesn't prove anything, now that I think about it. A 'closet' racist would not use the term, an 'outspoken' racists would use the term regardless of who he/she might offend..--IMO.

    It would probably depend on how big a black person it was. ;)

    Pose the same question to the leaders of the United Negro College Fund! Do you have a white guilt complex? I don't! Negro is a derivative from the Latin word niger for black.
