Suzi Parker’s Bizarre India Today Conclave Overview

By Stacy Drake
Writing in the newly Huffington Post acquired Politics Daily, Suzi Parker offered up some rather strange analysis about Governor Palin’s upcoming trip to India. She began:

The jokes are already flying as Sarah Palin prepares to embark on a trip to India later this month, and more are surely to come. Will she rock a sari? Perhaps guest star in a Bollywood movie? Or bathe in the Ganges for a photo op?

What?

The link Parker provides to back up her claim that “the joke are already flying” is for one, non-funny “joke” Jimmy Falon told about the trip. That isn’t any “joke” cited by Parker in the first paragraph however. No, those are all her.

Parker writes, “will she rock a sari?” I don’t know, did Obama “rock” a dhoti kurta on his last trip to India? Who cares?

Then she wrote, “Perhaps guest star in a Bollywood movie?” Don’t quit your day job, Suzi. There is nothing funny about your faux jokes, not to mention the fact that they don’t make any sense. Has the governor ever starred in a Hollywood movie? No, she hasn’t… A better guess is that Suzi Parker wants her readers to think of Governor Palin as a “celebrity” and not a serious political figure. It stands to reason, considering the governor’s views are diametrically opposed to roughly 99% of Huffington Post writers. These are people who don’t want Americans to hear Governor Palin’s message, so they do their best to drown it out with this noise.

Finally, Parker ends her pathetic routine with “or bathe in the Ganges for a photo op?” I understand that bathing in the Ganges is something certain Indians take part in (and certain Westerners join in, usually of the celebrity variety, and usually while on vacation) but why even say that? For a “photo op” no less… Sure, Governor Palin bathing for a photo op, riiiiiiiiiiiiight.

Would Suzi Parker make these kinds of jokes about Tim Pawlenty? What about Mike Huckabee who is currently on more televisions across the country, more frequently due to his show, Fox segments, and commercials. Would she ask the same of him, since theoretically one could consider him a “celebrity?” The answer is probably no, but then again, I don’t see Suzi Parker pumping out two articles a week about Mike Huckabee either.

After Parker was finally done delivering lame one-liners, she gets to the actual overview of the upcoming trip. Then adding:

Representatives for India Today did not return e-mails about Palin’s trip. India Today is the country’s most diversified media group, with interests in magazines, newspaper, television, radio, Internet, books and music.

It is unclear if she is getting paid to appear, but Palin usually charges upwards of $100,000 for such speaking engagements, according to various news accounts.

So, because other “news” accounts exist (all pushing the same meme) Parker felt it necessary to repeat them. Suzi Parker has no idea what the arrangements of this event are, nor does anyone else outside those who actually planned it. To bring up the topic, with no facts what-so-ever, is to do the same thing she did with that opening paragraph. She’s merely leading her readers by repeating false narratives. It doesn’t matter what the arrangements are. The fact is that public figures get paid to speak at events. The only difference between Governor Palin and anyone else is that the media doesn’t talk about those others speaking “fees.”

Parker continues:

Palin has traveled outside the United States only a few times since Sen. John McCain chose her as his running mate in 2008. At that point, she had only traveled to the Middle East to visit U.S. troops. Since then, she has given a speech in Hong Kong and visited Haiti alongside Franklin Graham, son of evangelist Billy Graham.

She omits the trip Governor Palin took to visit wounded troops in Germany in 2007, and the trip to Kosovo the governor took in 2009. But who cares about details when you’ve got memes to push?

Then she writes (emphasis mine):

An article by the magazine on the conclave website states: “Her visit to India has generated immense buzz in U.S. political circles over if she will run for president in 2012. Palin is reportedly shy of traveling abroad but her keynote address at the India Today Conclave 2011 is seen as an attempt to articulate foreign policy where she was found wanting in her 2008 bid for V-P, say some experts.

Note to Suzi Parker… Doing constructive things with one’s time, versus traveling for the sake of travel, does not mean one is shy. Governor Palin’s trips overseas have all been well planned, meaningful trips. No, she is not wasting her hours jet-setting with the international elite, and thank God for that.

Parker’s column continues by noting some actual details of the conclave, but then she throws this in for good measure:

For a governor who served only 31 months in office, Palin is in fairly auspicious company.

There is a correction listed at the bottom of the article that says:

Correction: An earlier version of this article incorrectly stated how long Sarah Palin was governor of Alaska. She was governor for 31 months, not 18 months.

It was actually 32 months (Dec 2006 – July 2009) but Suzi proved in her first version to be severely mathematically challenged, so I’ll give her a break on that one month.

Perhaps she was taking the downplaying bit too far when she guesstimated that Governor Palin had only served for 18 months. But this fits into a pattern because she also neglects to mention that Governor Palin was on the 2008 Republican Presidential ticket. Such is the theme of Suzi Parker’s piece.

I hate to tell anyone how to do their job but this article could have been interesting without all of the swipes and insulting “jokes.” The event, India, and Governor Palin are all very interesting topics. However, if Suzi Parker were to get past her impulse to frame Governor Palin in a certain light, and deal with her on a respectable level, her readers might accidentally see who Governor Palin actually is, and they just might hear her message.

Sarah Palin Punks The Huffington Post: The Reason She will Be Elected President In 2012

Unless you live under a rock, you know that over the past few days Sarah Palin has rocked the world. Sarah spoke at what is being reported as the largest ever Chamber of Commerce meeting in the country on Friday night, and by Sunday afternoon, was sharing the stage with Rock and Roll icon Ted Nugent in Houston, Texas, where, in front of an enthusiastic, overflow crowd, Governor Rick Perry gave her a proclamation naming her an honorary Texan.

Now being a Texan, I can tell you that is something that we don’t take lightly. Being born a Texan is a special blessing, and we don’t hand out the honorary stuff to just anyone.

Of course, the really big deal this weekend, proclamation notwithstanding, was Sarah’s appearance at the first ever National Tea Party Convention, where she spoke to the nation, it was the real State of the Union speech, if you will.

The speech was incredible. It was stirring and emotional, Sarah pulled no punches. The speech was followed by a lively question and answer session from the event moderator. Sarah also set down with Fox News Sunday’s Chris Wallace for a hard hitting interview, where she hit another home run.

We’ll have a video and analysis coming. (Hey… it’s the weekend!)

Anyhow, the Saturday night speech in Nashville was a game changer. It was very fitting that Sarah gave such a powerful speech on the occasion of the 99th birthday of one of our greatest Presidents, Ronald Reagan.

So powerful was the speech that the moonbats on the left weren’t sure how to attack her. I mean let’s face it, progressives can’t compete in the marketplace of ideas. They know they will lose. It’s why all of their attacks on their opponents have to be so personal. (and false) If forced to argue strictly on the merit of their ideas, progressives would be laughed off the planet, so…they lie, hate, and scheme.

The best (worst?) Of the bunch at spreading lies and hate is the Huffington Post. We’ve long reported the ties that Zsa Zsa over there has to the money people behind the smears on Sarah Palin. We’ve also reported on the various members of Obama’s Alaska Mafia, hate mongers and serial liars like Shannyn Moore and Jeanne Devon, who she provides editorial space to, so they can spread their lies and hate.

Anyhow, these are ridiculous little people devoid of any worth to humanity whatsoever, and totally without one single redeeming quality.

Now again, none of these people could argue with Sarah’s red meat speeches or interviews. I mean how do you argue against liberty, freedom, and a strong national defense?

So they went looking. What did these loons come up with?

Oh the horror, Sarah Palin had a few notes scrawled on her hand! That’s right, this “rube” wrote a few things on her hand. How unsophisticated. How common, how ordinary.

Andrew Marcus over at Big Government has the “evidence” of the scribblings here.

Now the left is all over the place on this. To some it means she’s not “presidential” because she did something that pretty much everyone of us have done at least once in their life. To others it means she’s “dumb” because she needed notes to give a speech. Never mind Obama takes his teleprompter with him everywhere, lest he be left to his own devices, which is not pretty, as Obama is more gaffetastic than his famously gaffe prone Vice President.

I mean this guy has to have a teleprompter in a staff meeting, and while talking to school kids! How sad.


Anyhow, the left has just been having a field day with all of this today. They actually think this is something anyone with a brain cares about. That somehow this hurts Sarah.

I love the smell of desperation on the morning!

The far left moonbats like Huffington and her writers are so out of touch with America it’s simply pathetic. This is why the corrupt, Obamacentric media is going broke. They have no idea who their audience is or what they care about.

Most Americans look at Sarah and see themselves. Sarah is every man/woman. She’s one of us. And ya know, gosh darn it, she does things just like we do ‘em.

For Sarah’s part, she just punked the hell out of Zsa Zsa and her writers over at HuffPo!

If you look closely, the writing on Sarah’s hand says “Hi mom!

This dear readers is why Sarah Palin will be the next President of the United States. Oh, we’ll elect her because of her stellar record of achievements, for her strong record of getting the job done, of course, but it’s her spirit, her absolute refusal to lay down and play dead when the hate mongers on the left go after her that puts her heads and shoulders above anyone and everyone else in politics today.

Just as Ronald Reagan was smiling down on our Sarah on Saturday night, he was having a hardy chuckle with her on Sunday afternoon! Reagan was a master at hammering his opponents with a smile. It’s obvious that Sarah is cut from that same presidential cloth!

Our friends over at HillBuzz agree. Their take on this is dead on:

The reason Sarah Palin will be President in 2012, distilled in one picture

Hi Mom.

That’s what Sarah Palin wrote on her hand today, technically, before speaking at a campaign rally for Rick Perry in Texas.

Hi Mom” can also be loosely translated as “F-U, Lefties“.

Here’s what Sarah Palin did today, and why it’s not only brilliant, but it’s the chief reason this woman will be our 45th President.

She hit the Left back, in a subtle way that drives them crazy. THAT, friends, is quite an art form. We respect everyone alive who practices this sort of Fu.

Palin knew the Left, particularly the Huffington Post, has been trying to create an issue of several words Palin wrote on her hand before the Tea Party Convention speech yesterday: Energy, Taxes, American Spirit.

We do this too, FYI, whenever we have to do any public speaking, since we don’t usually take notecards with us or have a podium in front of us. We just write down a few key words, on our palm, so that we cover the three or four things we really wanted to talk about…lest we miss one of them. Unlike the current president, we don’t have a TelePrompTer traveling with us everywhere we go. Neither does Palin.

We hope Palin makes the “Hi Mom” thing a regular inside-joke.

The Huffalumps tried to make an issue of her palm-notes…and obsessed over staring at pictures of them yesterday…so Palin sent them a message today, letting them know she’s aware they are scrutinizing her palms…so she might as well send her Mom a message.

Those of you who met Mrs. Heath on Palin’s book tour have told us she’s a VERY nice woman (Mr. Heath too)…so we say “Hi Sarah’s Mom” today too.

Palin is quick with responses to the lunatics on the Left, which is remarkable. She gets in front of a story before it becomes an issue. She hits back hard when needed, but can use more subtle smacks when those are more appropriate.

We think she effectively disarmed this issue, in a humorous, fun way that’s relatable to average Americans.

Her ninja throwing star Facebook dispatches are well-crafted and deadly to her opponents.

Today, she proved her more subtle hits can be just as effective.

This woman has all the skills she needs to become President in two years.

All that’s missing is her ground team…of which we, and hopefully YOU, will surely be a part.

Go, Sarah, Go!

They are so right! Here’s the thing Sarah has that no other political figure in the country, on either side, has: Courage.

Sarah Palin is fearless. She got her “Sarahcuda” nickname while playing championship high school basketball. She was a tough player then, and an ever tougher player now.

This is the kind of leader a great nation deserves. Someone who doesn’t lay over and play dead when they are attacked by guttersnipes and low-lifes. Someone who doesn’t seek the approval of the radical elements of society.

Sarah is a hard nosed, tough minded leader. She also has a wicked sense of humor. I’m sure Ronnie would approve, I know we do!

Surprise! Billionaire Obama Supporter Keeping Levi Johnston In The Spotlight

As we have talked about since the election, there has been a coordinated effort by backers of Barack Obama to harm Governor Sarah Palin. We have also talked about the efforts put forth by both candidate, and now President, Barack Obama to do everything in his power to derail Sarah Palin.

We have previously talked about Barack Obama’s Alaska Mafia and how Obama and Pete Rouse, his former campaign chief-of -staff and now White House adviser, not only played an active roll in the failed “Troopergate” smear on Sarah Palin, but also actively coordinated the many attacks on Sarah post election, including encouraging the filing of all of the phony-baloney “ethics complaints” against her that would eventually cost the Alaskan taxpayers around $2 million.

Barack Obama even did a little pay-for-play “Chicago Style” payoff to Alaska State Senator Kim Elton for his part in the “Troopergate” smear. After being sworn in, Obama quietly appointed Elton to a make work job over at the Department of Interior. You can read the whole deal, as well as watch the great video that ties the entire mess together in a nice little bow, here.

As you know, Levi Johnston, the poster child for abstinence, and deadbeat dad of the century, is now “staring” in an advertising campaign for nuts. This ad, which also features his “bodyguard” “Tank” Jones, an Alaska private investigator, who works for Alaska attorney Rex Butler, a big Obama supporter, features Levi and “Tank” pretending to be at an “event” and has Levi eating the company’s nut.

Butler, who claims to be Levi’s “manager” is also representing Levi’s mother, who is facing drug trafficking charges.

The seriously cheesy ad, which features Levi in a green t-shirt with “Alaska” on it, (because no one would know who this moron is without it) is set against an all white background with “flash bulbs” going off and “canned” crowd noises while ‘Tank” pretends to “fight back the paparazzi!”

Perfectly pathetic, just like the participants!

Our friend Gregory Tart did some digging into Roll Industries, the parent company behind all of this. On his blog, Gregory reports that:

For months last year, the Huffington Post mocked Sarah Palin over Levi Johnston. The jokes about “meth”, hillbillies, and Bristol Palin was beyond the pale.

Now, Obama backers have launched an equally insidious deal to keep Levi Johnston in the public eye through a promotional campaign by Roll Industries for its nuts products- which seeks to profit from the former relationship between Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston. Johnston is a spokesman for the Roll’s Paramount Growers division.

Stewart A. Resnick, a billionaire liberal democrat, residing in Los Angeles, is the Chairman of Roll International. Rolls’ business involves agriculture, Fiji Water, and the Franklin Mint. He is also a prime financial backer behind the Democratic Party. His wife Lynda is Godmother to Arianna Huffington’s daughter.

Many have speculated that rich democrats would go to any lengths to keep this character in the public eye to embarrass Sarah Palin. It’s a sad world where the rich can score political points by attacking children to get at the mother.

Rolls International Brands include Sunkist.

Some very interesting points there, for sure. The ties to hate monger Arianna Huffington, whose vile Huffington Post actively and openly promotes hatred toward Sarah Palin are the most interesting, for sure.

In her attempts to constantly smear and spread lies about Sarah Palin, Huffington plucked two Z-list bloggers Shannyn Moore and Jeanne Devon (AKMuckraker) from obscurity, and made them feature bloggers on her website. Moore and Devon are charters members of Barack Obama’s Alaska Mafia.

One of the things Moore and Devon, along with Linda Kellen Biegel, were quite adept at, was illegally publicizing details of the various “ethics complaints” filed against Governor Palin. In Alaska, it’s illegal to publicize this sort of thing, until the complaint is resolved. Of course, the law has no teeth.

Oddly enough, if you do this and the complaint is against any government official EXCEPT the Governor, the complaint is thrown out. But curiously, not if it’s against the Governor or their staff. Hmmmmm.

Moore and Devon, along with the rest of the Alaska Mafia made great use of this loophole, often having intimate details of the complaints published on their blogs before they were even filed!

Wonder how they were able to do that? Could it be they were the ones writing them for others to file on their behalf?

The complaints, which have all been dismissed, were for ridiculous things like being photographed holding a fish, conducting an interview in her office, receiving cookies as a “bribe,” and wearing a jacket in sub-zero weather!

Linda Kellin Biegel, who was raising funds (possibly illegally) on her website so she could file more ethics complaints, herself, even concocted a conspiracy theory when Sarah went to visit her troops in Kosovo!

Even better, being the constitutional scholar that she is, Biegel, and her Mafia buddies decided that it was “unconstitutional” for Sarah Palin to talk to her troops while visiting them in Kosovo! I kid you not!

Sarah Palin, as Commander-in-Chief of the Alaska National Guard, addressed her troops giving them encouragement and support. Bringing them the best wishes from home.

Such is the depths of depravity these supreme sufferers of Palin Derangement Syndrome are capable of!

Look, the bottom line is this. Barack Obama and his many wealthy supporters know what we know. Sarah Palin is the biggest threat out there to Barack Obama, besides Barack Obama’s own incompetence. They know that she is an incredibly effective politician, see “death panels,” as well as a much loved Conservative figure and leading candidate for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination. This has them scared, as it should.

Obama’s billionaire backers like Stewart Resnick and George Soros have an almost endless supply of funds they will use to go after Palin in all sorts of “creative” ways. It must be noted though, that George Soros, whose MoveOn.org claimed “ownership” of the democrat party after the 2006 elections, spent a small fortune between 2000 and 2008 trying to defeat George Bush, to no avail!

As for Levi Johnston, this guy is a flake. Thank goodness Bristol had the good sense to dump this loser. It’s really a sad commentary that this kid would disrespect his son just to make a fast buck.

Levi, a total deadbeat who hasn’t paid one red cent in child support, is the sort person society used to shun. But we are living in the times were losers like this are celebrated, not banished to the ash heap of history. See Roman Polanski, David Letterman, and Obama’s “Safe Schools Czar” Kevin Jennings.

It’s obvious Levi Johnston has no self respect. But you would think this mutt would care about his son, Tripp, enough not to make a spectacle out of himself, but that is just too much to ask, I guess. Levi’s next move is to pose for Playgirl Magazine. I wonder if anyone has told Levi that about 80 percent of the purchasers of Playgirl are gay men?

It looks like Roll Industries, Stewart Resnick, and our President, have found themselves quite the winner in “spokesmodel” Levi Johnston!

Roll International is the parent company for these fine products:

Sunkist Fruit

Teleflora, the largest flower delivery service in the world.

FIJI bottled water

POM pomegranate products.

Paramount citrus and nuts.

Suterra pest control items.

Neptune Pacific Line global shipping company

In-house advertising agency Fire Station, which pays Levi as a pitchman for Rolls’ nuts.

H/T to Josh Painter for being on top of this as well. His is a must read blog.

Sarah Palin 14…Ankle Biters O

It’s a sad day over at the Huffington Post and left wing blogs like Mudflats and Celtic Diva’s Blue Oasis. You see, despite their best efforts to smear Alaska Governor Sarah Palin with more than a baker’s dozen of phony ethics complaints since the start of the year, all of their efforts have completely failed.

The latest complaint to be dismissed was incredibly ridiculous. It revolved around the fact that Governor Palin, in sub zero weather, had the temerity to wear a jacket when she attended the final day of the Tesoro Iron Dog Race!

The Iron Dog is the world’s longest and most difficult snow machine race. (snowmobile to us in the lower 48) The Governor was waiting at the finish line in both her official capacity as well as the wife of one of the competitors, her husband Todd, and his partner, Scott Davis. The Iron Dog is a grueling 1,971 mile race through some of the toughest conditions one can imagine. It is a true manly-man sport! Palin and Davis are two of the best, having 11 wins between them in the event.

To tell you how tough this race is, last year Todd finished with a game fourth place effort after a crash slowed him down, and he rode the last 400 miles with a broken arm.

So what was the issue?

Well, you see Governor Palin was wearing an Arctic Cat jacket. Arctic Cat makes snow machines and yes, they sponsor Todd and Scott.

Oh the humanity of it all!

And so, another baseless and comical ethics complaint was born from the ankle biters on the left.

This particular complaint was filed by a nasty woman named Linda Kellen Biegel. She is hostile to Governor Palin, and runs a website, Celtic Diva’s Blue Oasis, that is dedicated to not only spreading this woman’s hate for Governor Palin, but also coordinating attacks against her with other bloggers and members of the press.

Biegel who, according to her own website, is an official blogger for the DNC, has helped publicize the numerous phony harassment complaints against the Governor. In fact, the woman is so notorious for doing this, and then crowing on her website about it, that she actually inspired a group of talented conservative bloggers to create a very funny parody website that is spot on in it’s humorous depiction of her.

Now by herself, Linda Kellen Biegel would just be a sad character with a lot of time on her hands. But Biegel is far from being alone in this.

One has to understand that in Alaska, the far left is a small, but very well coordinated, and funded group. And they have some very big help. Lets meet just some of the players who participate in these smear tactics.

There is fellow hate blogger Jeanne Devon. Devon runs a particularly nasty website know as Mudflats. Now unlike Biegel, Devon didn’t have the guts to blog under her real name. Instead she chose to spread hate and lies under the alias AKMuckraker. This woman is so hateful in her approach, a democrat, Alaska Representative Mike Doogan outed her to the media. Devon and Biegel are very much the coordinators of the attacks against Governor Palin. Along with a couple of smaller bloggers. And yes, they have even went as far as recruiting folks to help file complaints against the Governor.

Now in Alaska, the ethics board doesn’t put out press releases when complaints are filed. They do however report the finding of all investigations once complete.

Of course, that wouldn’t help the democrat bloggers one bit. So they have help from so-called reporters.

Meet Amanda Coyne. Coyne is a college professor who…wait for it… teaches journalism. She also runs a for profit website that is pretty much dedicated to causing Governor Palin grief. Coyne, who claims to be Governor Palin’s “first official biographer”, also writes for the far left Huffington Post. Now the Post isn’t all that important, so Coyne has an ace-in-the-hole, her husband, Tony Hopfinger, who works for the Anchorage Daily News.

Hopfinger, who also freelances, makes sure the ADN is full of less than flattering stories about the Governor. This writer, and others have had issues with the Anchorage paper for some time.

The ADN had the habit of allowing absolutely anything, no matter how disgusting, to be said about Palin in their online comments section, while deleting supportive comments. After some investigating, we found that many of the most hateful comments, from people claiming to be Alaskans, were actually bloggers, and a newspaper columnist or two from the lower 48.

It got so bad that a group of readers actually promised protests and advertiser boycotts if they didn’t clean up their act, which they have since done, to some extent.

Now helping out Amanda Coyne, is fellow HuffPo writer, Shannyn Moore. The malicious content of her writing speaks for itself. Moore has the worst case of Palin Derangement Syndrome imaginable.

Why are people like Coyne, Hopfinger, and Moore important to these hate bloogers like Biegel and Devon, and the DNC’s plans? Well, remember, the State of Alaska isn’t in the habit of publishing complaints when they are filed. And yet, most of the nation’s left wing blogosphere knows about the complaints, often before they are filed.

This is where the HuffPo writers come in. They are tasked with writing story after story of how supposedly corrupt Governor Palin is. And of course, the rest of the media picks up on these stories and runs wild.

And while the complaint makes national and even international news, the fact that it was thrown out, and completely ridiculous, rarely gets reported. This is business as usual for democrats. It’s how they work.

There are other serial ethics complaint filers, like Andree McLeod. It is said that she is angry because the Governor wouldn’t give her a job. And who am I to say different.

Like a lot of the left wing, she claims to be a victim of something, and says she would file many more ethics complaints, if not for the fact “they” might get her. And yet, she is constantly talking about filing more ethics complaints!

Here’s an idea of the type of complaints filed:

McLeod filed an ethics complaint because Governor Palin announced she had been chosen as John McCain’s running mate on her website.

I kid you not!

She also complained because the Governor attended a Republican dinner.

McLeod has also anointed herself as the “cleavage cop” in the state of Alaska. In an e-mail to the administration commissioner Annette Kreitzer , McLeod complained that she was “astounded at the amount and magnitude of cleavage being exhibited by female employees in State of Alaska offices these days. Upon entering an office, I’m initially embarrassed when subjected to such low cut tops. …The negative impact this all has on the business I have to conduct is not to my benefit. I leave the office feeling offended.”

Seriously.

McLeod then hounded Mike Nizich, the governor’s chief of staff, she noted, “That’s a lot of pressure to put on guys, whether they are members of the public or colleagues, to just ignore the fact that these women are wearing tops with breasts popping out. … and not cross the lines.”

According to Eddie Burke, of the Eddie Burke radio show, McLeod was recently seen dining with Alaska Democrat State Senator Bill Wielechowski. Wielechowski has denied any collaboration with McLeod though.

Sure, OK.

While McLeod has filed some really hilarious complaints, she is not alone. There is a fellow named Chip Thoma, who has complained because the tour buses drive by the Governor’s Mansion, and even complained because the Governor’s young daughter, Piper, set up a lemonade stand!

Chip has unsuccessfully sued former Governor Walter J. Hickel saying that Governor was “out to get him”.

Now as I said earlier in this piece, all of the would either by funny, or pathetic, depending on your mood, if it wasn’t so malicious.

Thanks to these complaints, and the Barack Obama initiated “troopergate” fiasco, Governor Palin, who is not a wealthy politician, has had to start a defense fund to help pay her legal bills. And yes, the ankle biters filed a complaint against her for doing this, as well!

These bogus harassment complaints have also cost the State of Alaska around $300,000, prompting many Alaskans to call for a change in the law that would force the folks who file these sort of harassment complaints to have to pay for them.

But what is the end game in all of this?

Well, as I mentioned in an earlier piece exposing George Soros’ connection to the ethics complaint CREW filed against the McCain-Palin campaign, which itself was thrown out by the FEC, this is standard practice for the democrat party. Groups like CREW, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, use the legal system to harass their opponents. It’s one of the “Rules” set forth by Chicago communist Saul Alinsky, whose book on community organizing, “Rules For Radicals” sits on the night stand in most democrat politician’s and activist’s bedrooms, whether they admit it, or not.

With Governor Palin, the end game is even clearer.

Unlike most politicians, who talk a good game about ethics and reform, Governor Palin has a solid record of actually doing it. She actually walks the walk, and doesn’t just talk the talk.

As Palin biographer Recaldo Ochoa points out in his book, “Sarah Palin, Poised To Become America’s First Female President”, Governor Palin was a reformer from the very start. In her earliest days in politics Palin came upon a situation that she felt wasn’t right. Her friend, and the person who actually talked her into running for her city council spot, Nick Carney owned a waste management service. Not a problem in itself, but he was pushing through an ordinance that would have given his company a monopoly on waste pickup in and around the Wasilla community. Friendships aside, Palin felt this was wrong, and actively fought to make sure this didn’t happen.

This sort of basic common sense would follow her into the Mayor’s office.

Now once she had served her two term limit, Sarah Palin looked for another challenge, and ran for Lt Governor. She lost. But she also impressed a lot of folks in Alaska. The Governor, Frank Murkowski, saw fit to appoint her as Chairman of the Alaska Oil and Gas Conservation Commission. A top position in the oil rich state.

Unfortunately, it wasn’t long before Palin found there were some serious problems in her agency. Two of the highest ranking players in the Alaska GOP, party head Randy Ruedrich and former Attorney general Gregg Renkes had some issues. Renkes had some conflicts of interest with a coal contract, and Ruedrich was basically blowing off his job in favor of doing party business.

This is the exact sort of thing that makes the average American distrust all politicians.

Palin took this to her boss, the Governor, who was less than receptive. Now, she could have just went on, and continued to work as head of the agency. After all, this was a good paying six figure job. And her star was really on the rise. She could have “played ball” and it would have been smooth sailing. She would have been set for life.

Sarah Palin didn’t do that. She resigned from her job and took these people on. For most folks, this would have been career suicide. But not for Sarah Palin. Both Renkes and Ruedrich were forced to resign from the agency, and Ruedrich was fined $12,000, the largest fine of it’s kind in state history.

Palin went on to challenge Governor Murkowski in the Republican primary, beating him in a landslide. She then went on to defeat popular former Governor, Tony Knowles.

The point is, for nearly two decades Sarah Palin has been a true, honest, and ethical politician. Someone who doesn’t care who the person is, or what party they belong to. If she sees something that isn’t right, she will point it out and work hard get it stopped.

Of course, this sort of person is not a welcomed sight on the national scene. At least not by the average politician!

Someone like Sarah Palin is a direct threat to any politician, no matter the party, who is corrupt.

The establishment in both parties see her as a direct threat.

So here come the ethics complaints hard and heavy. From the so called “troopergate” complaint that was encouraged along by Barack Obama, to all of these harassment complaints filed and coordinated by the many left wing bloggers, to the phony complaint filed by CREW, the democrats, and I suspect some worried Republicans, are doing everything they can to take away the reformer mantle from Governor Palin. To basically take it off her resume.

Don’t fall for this sort of nonsense. It’s just dirty politics at it’s worse.

This one is an easy choice to make!
