On Sarah Palin Hypocrisy

Jon Stewart


On "The Daily Show," Jon Stewart hit Karl Rove and Bill O'Reilly with damning evidence of their hypocrisy regarding Vice Presidential nominee Sarah Palin.


Palin's Churches and the Third Wave

Video documentary "Sarah Palin's Churches and The New Wave"

Sarah Palin's churches are actively involved in a resurgent movement that was declared heretical by the Assemblies of God in 1949. This is the same 'Spiritual Warfare' movement that was featured in the award winning movie, "Jesus Camp," which showed young children being trained to do battle for the Lord. At least three of four of Palin's churches are involved with major organizations and leaders of this movement, which is referred to as The Third Wave of the Holy Spirit or the New Apostolic Reformation. The movement is training a young "Joel's Army" to take dominion over the United States and the world.



Palin and McCain's Shotgun Marriage

Frank Rich, The New York Times: "Given the actuarial odds that could make Palin our 45th president, it would be helpful to know who this mystery woman actually is. Meanwhile, two eternal axioms of our politics remain in place. Americans vote for the top of the ticket, not the bottom. And in judging the top of the ticket, voters look first at the candidates' maiden executive decision, their selection of running mates. Whatever we do and don't know about Palin's character at this point, there is no ambiguity in what her ascent tells us about McCain's character and potential presidency."


Palin's "Trooper-Gate" Cover-Up

Robert Parry, Consortium News: "Ripping a page from George W. Bush's playbook on obstructing investigations, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and her senior aides are maneuvering to thwart an abuse-of-power investigation that Palin initially vowed to assist."


Sarah Palin: "A Gidget for God's Truth"

Steve Weissman, Truthout: "'The Constitution established the United States of America as a Christian nation,' declared John McCain back in September 2007. With his vice-presidential pick of Governor Sarah Palin, he has found a winsome soul mate who is even more of a Christian nationalist, eager to use government to impose her religious views on the rest of us."


As Campaign Heats Up, Untruths Can Become Facts

Jonathan Weisman, The Washington Post: "From the moment Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin declared that she had opposed the infamous 'Bridge to Nowhere,' critics, the news media and nonpartisan fact checkers have called it a fabrication or, at best, a half-truth. But yesterday in Lebanon, Ohio, and again in Lancaster, Pa., she crossed that bridge again. 'I told Congress: "Thanks but no thanks for that Bridge to Nowhere up in Alaska,"' Palin told the crowds at the 'McCain Street USA' rallies. 'If we wanted a bridge, we'll build it ourselves.'"


Pulling the Curtain on Palin

E.J. Dionne Jr., The Washington Post: "John McCain's campaign acknowledged this weekend that Sarah Palin is unprepared to be vice president or president of the United States. Of course, McCain's people said no such thing. But their actions told you all you needed to know. McCain, Barack Obama and Joe Biden all subjected themselves to tough questioning on the regular Sunday news programs. Palin was the only no-show. And it's not just the Sunday interviews. She has not opened herself to any serious questioning since McCain picked her to be next in line for the presidency."


A Palin Theocracy

Marjorie Cohn, Truthout: "John McCain's selection of Sarah Palin as his vice-presidential running mate has invigorated a lackluster campaign. The media can't stop talking about her. Given McCain's age and state of health (his medical file was nearly 1,200 pages long), Palin would indeed be a heartbeat away from becoming president. But what would a Palin administration really look like?"


Sarah Palin, the Free Market and Certificate of Need Laws

Niko Karvounis, Health Beat: "A few days ago over at The Health Care Blog, Robert Laszewski posted a list of Sarah Palin's health care priorities while serving as governor of Alaska. No. 1 on her list was the repeal of certificate of need (CON) laws in the state."


Blizzard of Lies

Paul Krugman, The New York Times: "Did you hear about how Barack Obama wants to have sex education in kindergarten, and called Sarah Palin a pig? Did you hear about how Ms. Palin told Congress, 'Thanks, but no thanks' when it wanted to buy Alaska a Bridge to Nowhere? These stories have two things in common: they’re all claims recently made by the McCain campaign - and they’re all out-and-out lies. Dishonesty is nothing new in politics. I spent much of 2000 - my first year at The Times - trying to alert readers to the blatant dishonesty of the Bush campaign’s claims about taxes, spending and Social Security. But I can’t think of any precedent, at least in America, for the blizzard of lies since the Republican convention."

Loyalty first

In These Times
by Hans Johnson


John McCain’s bending to the religious right in choosing Sarah Palin and two ominous charges of abuse of power from her tenure in Alaska raise new concerns about how the Republican team would govern. The selection of Palin, who tried to oust a town librarian resistant to censorship and fired a law-enforcement official who was the boss of her sister’s former husband, risks a renewal of and not an end to illegal actions that have marked the Bush administration...


Sarah Palin’s nine most disturbing beliefs

by staff


Let’s forget for a moment that Sarah Palin likes to kill moose, has lots of children and was once voted the second-prettiest lady in Alaska; that’s all part of the gusher of sensationalist, but not particularly substantive, news that has dominated coverage of the Alaska governor’s addition to the Republican ticket. Before the next news cycle brings the shocking information that Palin was actually impregnated by Bigfoot, we need to shift the discussion to what really matters about her in the context of the White House: her dangerous views...


Don’t be swept away by Palin campaign hype

Christian Science Monitor
by Jerry Lanson


In the summer of 2002, a senior aide to President George W. Bush met with a writer whose work had annoyed him to deliver a lesson in how his administration saw its mandate. ‘The aide said that guys like me … ‘believe that solutions emerge from … judicious study of discernible reality,” Ron Suskind wrote, recalling the event two years later. ”That’s not the way the world really works anymore …’ [the aide] continued. ‘When we act, we create our own reality.” Even in the days before the Bush presidency and Karl Rove, widely believed to be the source of that quote, political campaigns of all stripes have strived to ‘create their own realities.’ But while reporters have ridiculed Democrat Michael Dukakis for riding in a tank and belittled Barack Obama for the Greek columns at his nomination speech, Republicans have succeeded in turning the manipulation of myth into an art form...
