AP: Palin Cleared By ‘Troopergate’ Report



On the eve of the presidential election, Gov. Sarah Palin is cleared of any alleged ethics violations surrounding her firing of Public Safety Commissioner Walt Monegan.

Via the AP:

Released Monday, the report says there is no probable cause to believe Palin or any other state official violated the Alaska Executive Ethics Act in connection with the firing. The report was prepared by Timothy Petumenos, an independent counsel for the Alaska Personnel Board.

Awesome. Now go elect her and John McCain!

McCain Ad: “Freedom”; Zogby Poll: McCain 48, Obama 47

“Don’t hope for a stronger America. Vote for one. Join me.”


Drudge reporting:

ZOGBY SATURDAY: Republican John McCain has pulled back within the margin of error… The three-day average holds steady, but McCain outpolled Obama 48% to 47% in Friday, one day, polling. He is beginning to cut into Obama’s lead among independents, is now leading among blue collar voters, has strengthened his lead among investors and among men, and is walloping Obama among NASCAR voters. Joe the Plumber may get his license after all…



Obama: Wealth and Property Rights Are “Selfishness” PLUS History Lessons!

Disclaimer: The videos I post are not my work. This one contains some textual remarks that are, linguistically, out of bounds for me; but I wanted to ensure, in case you missed it, that you could hear him boldly proclaim a person’s right to wealth and property was “selfishness”.

Okay, I was born in 1982, 33 days after Ayn Rand died. I don’t know how much everyone knows about her because I wasn’t around in her heyday, but many of you were. Forgive me if I inadvertently insult your collective consciousness. For the youth in the audience, listen up. Continue reading

ABC’s Kate Snow: Palin Won’t Release Her Medical Records!

Five Pregnancies vs. The One

Five Pregnancies vs. The One

Look folks, Obama is smoker, Biden had an aneurism, and McCain has had several incidences of cancer. McCain and Biden have released their medical records which are no surprises. Obama has yet to release his records and instead substituted them with a doctor’s note — actually just a one page letter. 

So what gives with this:

On Sunday morning, Palin spokeswoman Tracey Schmitt told ABC News that the campaign had planned to release information on her medical history early this week.

Today is Wednesday.

ABC News has asked every day this week about the status of the release of information and received no updates from the campaign.  It is unclear what is holding things up.

“We are working on this and it will happen sooner than later,” Schmitt said on Sunday.

Aides suggested privately that there was nothing to hide in the records, but that it was simply taking a while to call doctors and round up the appropriate information to release.

But an entire week?

Now you know what ABC has to obsess over, that is, when they’re not kowtowing Obama. Palin is aware of it noting to NBC’s chief kowtower:

“So be it, if that will allow some curiosity seekers, perhaps, to have one more thing that they can either check the box off that they can find something to criticize, perhaps, or find something to rest them assured over.  Fine.  I’m healthy, I’m happy, had five kids.  That is going to be in the medical records.  Never been seriously ill or hurt.  You will see that in the medical records if they’re released,” Palin told NBC’s Brian Williams.

More substantive information there than we find in Obama’s doctor’s note. Both of Obama’s parents died of cancer. His is at high risk for prostate and he has a history of smoking.

Meanwhile, the ‘Cuda does not smoke, has five kids, both parents living and healthy, and she breathes the clean fresh Alaskan air and when she goes where huskies go, she never eats the yellow snow.

Palin: L.A. Times Wins Pulitzer Prize For Kowtowing PLUS My Take On Obama’s Infomercial



For those that are not a walking lexicon, I give you: kowtowing.

kowtow |ˈkouˈtou| verb [intransitive] historical

kneel and touch the ground with the forehead in worship or submission as part of Chinese custom.

• figurative act in an excessively subservient manner she didn’t have to kowtow to a boss.

ORIGIN early 19th cent.: from Chinese kētóu, from kē ‘knock’ tóu ‘head.’

The direct translation of the root words is “knock heads.” While the L.A. Times bows in submission to Sen. Obama, Gov. Palin is running around the swing states ‘knocking a few heads’ of her own.

I don’t watch infomercials on anything — ever. If I do catch a 30-60 second spot, I always make fun of them. Ask my wife. I use stupid quotes from them all the time and even take the liberty of rewriting their scripts and reciting them when they come on. She’s gracious enough to laugh. But 60 seconds is my max. Anything longer, I tune out.

So you can imagine that after seeing the 1:17 Obama Infomercial teaser I was done. He lost me in the first 30 seconds. No chance of me actually sitting down for 30 minutes of socialist America bashing indoctrination. No no, if he’s elected, there will be at least four years of state-run media and so much propaganda it will become a clinical syndrome.

But getting elected is the big ‘if’ at this point. Continue reading

Biden: Not $250K, Not $200K, But Now $150K – Just Mail In Your Wallet


I Just Cannot Control My Mouth

I Just Cannot Control My Mouth

Folks are correct. Joe Biden doesn’t gaffe. He tells the truth according to him. And now, we’re going to pay for it.

Via the Wall Street Journal:

Well, will families making less than $250,000 get a tax cut under President Obama, or not? Senator Obama has been saying this for months, but on Monday Joe Biden put the tax-cut income threshold at $150,000 in an interview with a TV station in his beloved Scranton, Pennsylvania. The Biden campaign later clarified — or at least tried to clarify — the matter by saying that anyone making between $150,000 and $250,000 wouldn’t get a tax cut but also wouldn’t pay higher taxes.

You see, both Obama and Biden know you can’t raise taxes on the upper 5% and send a one-time check to the other 95% and call it tax cuts, especially if you intend to spend an additional $1 trillion.

What’s worse, is that this one-time check is one-time! It’s a one-time tax credit/welfare check and after that everyone — at ALL income levels — will be paying higher taxes because they’ll let the Bush tax cuts expire. If you own a small business chances are you’ll be feeling most of the pain. Enjoy the rewards of your success while you can.
