FW: THE FACTS ON SARAH PALIN

This is the truth.
Bob



Can’t verify the accuracy of whether or not Sarah has actually made these things happen, but it seems quite plausable they are correct…

IHS,

Don't blow this one off. You really should read all of this! Eye Opener. Think outside the Party.



By Dewie Whetsell, Alaskan Fisherman. As posted in comments on Greta's article referencing the MOVEON add about Sarah Palin.
The last 45 of my 66 years I've spent in a commercial fishing town in Alaska . I understand Alaska politics but never understood national politics well until this last year. Here's the breaking point: Neither side of the Palin controversy gets it. It's not about persona, style, rhetoric, it's about doing things. Even Palin supporters never mention the things that I'm about to mention here.

1- Democrats forget when Palin was the Darling of the Democrats, because as soon as Palin took the Governor's office away from a fellow Republican and tough SOB, Frank Murkowski, she tore into the Republican's "Corrupt Bastards Club" (CBC) and sent them packing. Many of them are now residing in State housing and wearing orange jump suits. The Democrats reacted by skipping around the yard, throwing confetti and singing, "la la la la" (well, you know how they are) Name another governor in this country that has ever done anything similar.


2- Now with the CBC gone, there were fewer Alaskan politicians to protect the huge, giant oil companies here. So she constructed and enacted a new system of splitting the oil profits called "ACES." Exxon (the biggest corporation in the world) protested and Sarah told them, "don't let the door hit you in the stern on your way out." They stayed, and Alaska residents went from being merely wealthy to being filthy rich. Of course, the other huge international oil companies meekly fell in line. Again, give me the name of any other governor in the country that has done anything similar.


3- The other thing she did when she walked into the governor's office is she got the list of State requests for federal funding for projects, known as "pork." She went through the list, took 85% of them and placed them in the "when-hell-freezes-over" stack. She let locals know that if we need something built, we'll pay for it ourselves. Maybe she figured she could use the money she got from selling the previous governor's jet because it was extravagant. Maybe she could use the money she saved by dismissing the governor's cook (remarking that she could cook for her own family), giving back the State vehicle issued to her, maintaining that she already had a car, and dismissing her State provided security force (never mentioning - I imagine - that she's packing heat herself). I'm still waiting to hear the names of those other governors.


4- Now, even with her much-ridiculed "gosh and golly" mannerism, she also managed to put together a totally new approach to getting a natural gas pipeline built which will be the biggest private construction project in the history of North America. No one else could do it although they tried. If that doesn't impress you, then you're trying too hard to be unimpressed while watching her do things like this while baking up a batch of brownies with her other hand..


5- For 30 years, Exxon held a lease to do exploratory drilling at a place called Point Thompson. They made excuses the entire time why they couldn't start drilling... In truth they were holding it like an investment. No governor for 30 years could make them get started... This summer, she told them she was revoking their lease and kicking them out. They protested and threatened court action. She shrugged and reminded them that she knew the way to the court house. Alaska won again.


6- President Obama wants the nation to be on 25% renewable resources for electricity by 2025. Sarah went to the legislature and submitted her plan for Alaska to be at 50% renewables by 2025. We are already at 25%. I can give you more specifics about things done, as opposed to style and persona. Everybody wants to be cool, sound cool, look cool. But that's just a cover-up. I'm still waiting to hear from liberals the names of other governors who can match what mine has done in two and a half years. I won't be holding my breath.

By the way, she was content to return to AK after the national election and go to work, but the haters wouldn't let her. Now these adolescent screechers are obviously not scuba divers. And no one ever told them what happens when you continually jab and pester a barracuda. Without warning, it will spin around and tear your face off. Shoulda known better.


You have just read the truth about Sarah Palin that sends the media, along with the democrat party, into a wild uncontrolled frenzy to discredit her. I guess they are only interested in skirt chasers, dishonesty, immoral people, liars, womanizers, murderers, and bitter ex-presidents' wives.

So "You go, Girl." I only wish the men in Washington had your guts, determination, honesty, and morals.

I rest my case.


Only FOOLS listen to the biased media.

a point by point breakdown of this e-mail.

1. Sarah is seen as a savior for doing something that should've been done by democrats in office but they couldn't.. then a fag joke

2. With corporate oil protectors kicked out, Sarah bravely stepped in and.. had a husband who had a stake in British Petroleum. Huh.

3. Direct democracy=The best democracy. Just call up Sarah at 3 am when you see a pothole. Got rid of a job (gov. cook.)

4. Courageously thumbed her nose at Republicans by building a Natural Gas Pipeline.. which hasn't actually been built. She was only recently tapped to head it. Then a misogynist joke.

5. Husband owns stake in British Petroleum. Anything having to do with oil is lol-able.

6. Doesn't realize that Alaska's 683,000 people =/= the lower 48s' and Hawaii's ability to massively overhaul everything we do.

7. (I''ll put this as 7) "Haters" didn't have anything to do with her ineptitude when returning to Governor's position.

Gotta love the begining: "I don't know if any of it is true but wouldn't it be great if it was!"

Point 3 really sticks out to me. The idea that Alaska receives "no pork" is straight up wrong. Alaska is/was the recipient of a lot of pork, mostly because Ted Stevens was such a big wheel in the Congress for so many years (prior to his recent legal troubles, that is).

Furthermore, even if it was true, its not what I would consider a job well done. One of the jobs of a governor is to get what whatever you can for the benefit of your state. Get it while the gettings good. Every dollar you can get from outside the state is one less dollar you have to tax or borrow to pay for things inside the state. So here she's being praised for sending money away from her state.

Finally, there's this:

Oh no! Watch out folks, the barracuda might getcha! You know, by quitting their jobs, "writing" a crappy book and then going on a media tour to sell it! So menacing! Watch out liberals, those barracudas will show you no mercy!

"I only wish the men in Washington had your guts, determination, honesty, and morals."

Hey RWF: all those MEN (forget about the women pols bc they are just "bitter;" they don't count, except for sexy Bible Spice) in Wash DC: ya got yer wish!!! Yippeee. Because all those MEN in Wash DC DO have the "honesty and morals" of Caribou Barbie!

Wheeeeeee. Let's just have all of our pols be as dumb and dishonest and immoral as the Snowbilly Grifter. YAY!!!!!

"Only FOOLS listen to the biased media."

I agree completely, utterly & totally with this RWF comment (a first?).

So here's a suggestion: stop watching Fake "News," listening to Lush Rimjob, and all the blow-hard b.s. rightwing racist djs on the radio.

"I rest my case."

I don't think Palin will run in 2012. Being president
is too hard while having a book ghostwritten and
giving snarky, vindictive speeches to her adoring
teabaggers is fun and profitable.

She'll play powerbroker, instead.

And the last of the moderate Republicans flee for
their lives.

Bebe 99 said...

Did she refuse the Federal Funds, or just fail to fill out the proper paperwork thereby losing the money?-- It "sounds plausible" (because it happened in my city)

Maybe she just likes some pork more than other pork. For instance in Feb 08 she requested $487,000 to fight obesity in Alaska and $4 million for recreational trails, two things which seem porkish to me. But then someone else's pork is ANOTHER PERSON'S JOB.

The Facts on Sarah Pailin*



*may not be actual facts, but we Won't let that stop us!

Anonymous said...

gruaud, I'm convinced her whole campaign will turn into a foil to make Romney or Huckabee look like the "sane" candidate, even if she doesn't realize it yet. We would be far too lucky to have her win the primary.

Only FOOLS listen to the biased media! Clearly, intelligent and informed people only listen to RWFs with no citations or factual basis.

Have to agree that Palin will not be a serious candidate. There is simply no reasonable explanation for quitting her job as Governor to write a book and be a celebrity! I really can't see her on Fox either. Does she know enough about politics to be a commentator?

Anonymous said...

To last Anon post: does anyone on Fake "know enough about politics"?? I think most of those commentators are there to read GOP spin, lies and talking points in a semi-convincing way.

That said, I assume (don't watch Fake much) that most of the commentators are capable of speaking in real, understandable sentences, a skill which eludes Palin.

"Can’t verify the accuracy of whether or not Sarah has actually made these things happen, but it seems quite plausable they are correct..."

Oh, if only there was some research tools or factual sources readily available to me on this machine I use to forward emails!

"she tore into the Republican's 'Corrupt Bastards Club' (CBC) and sent them packing."

Then replaced them with her high school friends who didn't have a single fucking shred of appropriate credentials.

"They stayed, and Alaska residents went from being merely wealthy to being filthy rich."

Remember, kids. Taking money from profitable corporations or rich people and giving it to other people just because they're there and have a pulse is SOCIALISM. Unless you're giving oil money to Alaskans.

"She let locals know that if we need something built, we'll pay for it ourselves."

No, she didn't. Alaska receives a lot more federal funds than it pays in income taxes. Despite all their oil money they're not a self-sufficient state.

"Maybe she could use the money she saved by dismissing the governor's cook"

The chef wasn't fired, just transferred to another location than the governor's mansion. Just as well, since Palin spent so much time either at home or on the road, all on the state's dime, of course.

"wild uncontrolled frenzy to discredit her"

Dude, that's called fact-checking. Because she lies. A lot.

Also too I like it very much alot too also that this begins and starts with the phrase that also makes this completely true, too:

"This is the truth.
Bob"

There you go. If Bob sez it's da troof, then it must be! Also.

"Even Palin supporters never mention the things that I'm about to mention here."

Maybe I've been too hard on them.

Although, it doesn't surprise me that people with no understanding of or interest in anything beyond the superficial ("I love Sarah because she will do great things because she is a wonderful person and we love her so much!") would forget or ignore complicated untrue talking points about as often as they would forget or ignore facts.

I think the reason you read these things on-line more often than you hear them IRL (apart from the not-hanging-with-crazies selection bias) is that all of Palin's supporters have to cut and paste the talking points each time. There are too many lies for them to remember, IMO.
