The leaks from the copies of the new Joe McGinnis book on Palin have been explosive.

I have no doubt that had such material been published about Obama or the Democrats, Drudge would already have been first in line to publish the unconfirmed details of such a book.

I'd say he will still be drawn to this like catnip, and be unable to stay away as of no later than next week some time.

Assuming the allegations can be substantiated, which fornication will get the former governor in more hot water with her backers: the fling with G-Money, my man Glenn Rice (who for the NBA challenged is a black man), or her husband's business partner, when she was married (thus, adulterous)?

Personally, I think there is already enough out there to prove her irrationality.


She's a woman who was pregnant when she was married, who raised a daughter who also became pregnant, out of wedlock, and then she herself, gave birth to a Downs Syndrome Baby, in her forties!

The statistics on having a Downs Syndrome fetus go up tremendously, when a woman is in her forties!

Careless, negligent, and dishonest, to then be dragging that baby around like a campaign mascot, and like a sack of potatoes, face first, no support for his head and neck, while showing off her pregnant daughter, and acting like they had accomplished something wonderful, because they both were too stupid to master birth control!!!

Any woman who emerges down the steep steps of a Jet, in spike heels, waving with one hand, and carrying a downs baby, in the other, face first, hanging the child over her arm, is a complete idiot!

That's enough for me right there!

From the reich wing LA Times:

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">Joe McGinniss' revelations are undermined by the use of unnamed sources and the inherent difficulty of writing instant history.

There's a not-so-subtle agenda underpinning Joe McGinniss' "The Rogue: Searching for the Real Sarah Palin," although it's never made explicit until late in the book. "The time has come to strike the tent," McGinniss begins the closing chapter. "[N]o matter how much my book sales might benefit from a Palin presidential campaign in 2012, I sincerely hope that the whole extravaganza, which has been unblushingly underwritten by a mainstream media willing to gamble the nation's future in exchange for the cheap thrill of watching a clown in high heels on a flying trapeze, is nearing the end of its run."</div></div>


But ... it was put on the spoon for y'all so what can I expect other than unquestioned belief.

OH DEAR! (http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/news/books/la-et-0916-mcginniss-palin-book-review-20110917,0,3591447.story)


The underlying racism in this thread is also duly noted.

The NY Times and the LA Times both wrote scathing reviews of the book as well.

Unfortunately for Ms. Palin, that only legitimizes the subject as fit for public discourse, and the cable talkers have dived right in.

Guess we knew that, friend, she's married to an Eskimo! LOL... one of many in Alaska, who apparently has addiction demons, addicted to all sorts of mind altering drugs, including alcohol.


Gee, wonder why so many repigs have sexual, and drug and alcohol issues?

Boehner, whining and crying, hung over all the time in an alcoholic stupor.

Peggy Noonan, aka Nooner, who starts drinking every day at noontime, and then writes her scathing vitriolic attacks.

Bush lied about his coke use and DUI, and multi DWI's for Cheney, whose friends yell "Duck!" everytime he loads up his gun, and they're not talking about the flying ones, and then after he shoots one of them, one of his friends, that is, /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif he has to hide out until his alcohol level is safe, lol, three days????

And then there is Limpballs, who had/has all sorts of addictions, some apparently too tawdry to speak of, and Beck, LMAO, well we all know about him.

O' Reilly, Fux Noise paying off all of his sexually harrassed victims?

Wow, the list goes on and on...and I haven't even gotten to all of the toe tapping, closeted gays, and pedophiles.

What a bunch of guilty conscience, "Christians"....trying to either cover it all up, or escape their sins through sedation, lol...

The question you have to ask is WHEN any other time did Drudge not publish a tease headline to such an explosive book on a public official, however tawdry and unsourced it might have been.

So far, he's keeping his powder dry, and his readers, uninformed, about this imbroglio, even if only to link to disapproving and condemnatory reviews.

Considering how much traffic would be driven to his site with a mere mention, either he's showing admirable restraint of a kind no one would imagine him capable of, or he is under significant threats, perhaps of violence, to shut him up.

Beck admits to being an alcoholic, and snorting most of his $400k earnings at the time up his nose. (The last, a felony crime, and a bad use of money as well!)

Rush's doctor shopping was a felony, as were his possession of those controlled substances without prescriptions that he got from his housekeeper in the Publix parking lot, and wherever he got that Viagra not in his name when he went to the Dominican Republic's famous sex tourism trade (with young boys featured).

Freaks.

But what's worse and more damaging in the book is that (allegedly) SP is entirely a fraud, as to her public and private life. Not a mother to her children, ditching her security team to hide that she worked a 5-hour day, leaving at 3 pm, and shopping every day, but couldn't be bothered to feed her children?

We're nearly in the movie Idiocracy already. Wait 'til one of these clowns might achieve the highest office in the land.

There have been quite a large number of people who have gone "On The Record" so to speak, about Palin's corruption and incompetence, including a bi-partisan group in Alaska's own government, who agreed, that she abused the power of her office.

AND...Her former brother-in-law.

The Librarian when she was mayor.



A Government employee, (can't recall his title just now) whom she threatened to fire, if he didn't help her to get her brother-in-law fired, and then fired the man because he resisted.

Her daughter's former boyfriend, AND his mother.

AND, the greatest proof of all, the camera, lol!

Palin clearly quit as Governor, due to the legal fees she would have to pay for her corrupt actions as Governor, and decided to escape the scrutiny of her illegal behavior, and that money was her driving force, anyway!

Guess God told her to go for the bucks, lol!

And we all know about how poor Sara was crucified by Katy Couric, with those "gotcha" questions, "What magazines and newspapers do you read?"

/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/grin.gif

She's a bad mother, and a phony, and I don't need any testimony from anyone to see that, just Palin on camera, is the proof.

Same is true of Bush, Cheney, Rice, Rumsfeld, in fact, all of the Repiglicans!

So Gayle.
If Palin is a bad mother how do classify woman in ghetto's that breed continually?

It would seem to me people that have children under those conditions are guilty of child neglect and abuse.

Your Question, as you pose it, is not answerable, since you are asking me to compare one person, whom I have observed, to a whole group of women, each one different from another.

For myself, I personally believe in Zero Population Growth, which means that two parents have only one child.

I also believe that people on welfare, should get free birth control, including the morning after pill, and/or, if they agree, free surgery to suspend reproductive ability, (which is reversible for both men and women).

AND, yes, I fully believe in a woman's right to choose abortion, as long as it is in the first tri-mester, on demand, and without ANY interference or conditions, from anyone, including the idiotic "Right to lifers" who think they have the right to dictate to all others, according to their own personal views and irrational beliefs.

I believe that planned parenthood clinics should be expanded, with Federal Funds, to include Sex education, for any and all young girls who seek it, and without any parental notification as a condition.

As well, I believe that it is perfectly appropriate for Federal Funds, be used to pay for abortions.

My thinking? My tax dollars go into all sorts of things that are against my principles, like, for example, the Iraq War!

AND...The Vast, out of control, spending by the Military Industrial Complex.

Tax cuts for billionaires and millionaires, while I pay more than corporate CEO's who pay nothing...

Loopholes for polluters.

And the absurdity of no taxes collected from organized religions, or their vast Real Estate holdings, while Priests, Ministers, Rabbi's and Reverends live like Kings, and accumulate vast, untaxed wealth!

However the comparison is valid.
Consider this. Society holds individuals responsibility to their children based on economic standing. You can also make a case that the bar is also set differently based on the race of the individuals that are being discussed.
Lets face it. A white middle class family will be scrutinized more harshly than a poor white family or a poor black family.
Its a distinctly odd occurrence when you consider that the welfare of a child is considered to be of the utmost importance. The standard by which the welfare of child is gauged should be consistent and not matter what the race or economic standing of the individuals involved.

I am not against zero or moderate population growth.
I am basically neutral on abortion. The only portion of it that I become concerned with is late term abortion perform on a perfectly healthy fetus that is not endangering the life of the mother.

However I do not believe that our tax dollars should be involved in paying for abortion for individuals that consensually engaged in behavior that ended with an unwanted result.
However in the case of rape and incest I make an exception as it was not consensual and there may also be long term psychological ramifications that need to be address as well.

Birth control, morning after and surgery are all acceptable to me.
However we also need to return to teaching personal responsibility and that actions have consequences. Not all woman are left without emotional scars after having an abortion. It is a decision that stays with an individual for life.

I also believe parents are the single most important part of a child's life. I dont believe government is a substitute for a family and its involvement in healthy family life should be restricted. Government is not designed for, nor should it be in the business of raising children. That is the sole responsibility of parents.

Nothing is certain in life. Accidents happen even to the most careful of individuals. Instilling a solid education combined with a sense of personal responsibility and a realization that actions have consequences can do nothing but help individuals avoid potentially unfortunate circumstances.

Just say no and abstinence are nice mantra's. Both of which do work. However they are also the most difficult to instill into young curious minds.
Sex is going to happen. It always does. Inevitably there are consequences, whether they are desired or not.

Still no mention of this at Drudge. Still think he'll crack and cite something as of next week.
