Wow... That's almost disappointing in its simplicity.


Considering that this investigation has been going for a while, it's is a bit surprising she got taken by surprise. Presumably, somebody inside the investigation team leaked to her that an indictment was on its way, but she could have had a plan ready a long time ago. Did she hope that by ignoring it the troubles would go away?

She is really not fit for any office.
I am also a bit pissed that none of the National media picked up on that during the election...

Look again at that dot. That's here. That's home. That's us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every "superstar," every "supreme leader," every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there – on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.

Big article on Palin in the August Vanity Fair. I'd never heard this:
When Trig was born, Palin wrote an e-mail letter to friends and relatives, describing the belated news of her pregnancy and detailing Trig's condition; she wrote the e-mail not in her own name but in God's, and signed it “Trig's Creator, Your Heavenly Father.”
The woman does bring the crazy, doesn't she?

Yeah... That was an interesting article.

And, here (also, shorter funnier version here) is the latest development in the Palin saga (Episode 4: A new trope).

This is hilarious. Media people know a thing or two about America's First Amendment (which, Palin should be informed, solidly trumps Alaska's constitution). They are not going to be scared away by vague threats.

The attorney threats seem to me to be a case of using a handkerchief to desperately try to fan away the smoke in hopes that nobody notices the fire. Instead, all that is accomplished is to draw further attention to Palin's many ethical problems.

Man, it is even worse than I thought.


If even Fox turns its back on her (contradicting itself after months of blind praise), it means their GOP masters authorized them too.

filthy, you had me all fired up to read that first link, but it was not nearly as kinky as I'd hoped, darnit.

On another note, one HuffPo columnist coined a good name for this whole event: the"Iquitarod".

What brings out the hate for this woman? It can't just be her differing views?

Of course not, Robb. She's much prettier than I am, that's why I hate her.

For me it's the harpie screech that does it. Her voice is like a cross between Fran Dresher and fingernails on a chalk board.

You've got it wrong, Robb. I love Sarah Palin. I love that she is a Republican. Really, I do.

Uncertainty may make you uncomfortable. Certainty makes you ridiculous.

Just don't loooooove Sarah Palin.

Well, if you get the chance, insist on two forms of contraception and that she pay for all legal fees.

Has it been that long since her infamous interviews with Katie Couric? Oh, there's so much to dislike about this woman. Don't get me started!
