Sarah Palin: American Nightmare

Palin's Climate "Epiphany"

Eugene Robinson: "Sarah Palin is such a cold-eyed skeptic about the Copenhagen summit on climate change that it's no surprise she would call on President Obama not to attend. After all, Obama might join other leaders in acknowledging that warming is a 'global challenge.' He might entertain 'opportunities to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.' He might even explore ways to 'participate in carbon-trading markets.'"

Palin the Pundit

William Rivers Pitt, Truthout: "Dealing with Sarah Palin, in the immortal words of Pee Wee Herman, is like unraveling a giant cable-knit sweater that someone just keeps knitting, and knitting and knitting. There is no end to it, no bottom to this ocean of idiocy, as evidenced by the latest iteration of the Palin phenomenon: out of the cold, clear blue sky, the former Alaska governor and internationally-renowned dunderhead, has declared herself an expert on global climate change in general, and on the Copenhagen summit in particular."

Roguishly Rouge: A Review of "Going Rouge: Sarah Palin - American Nightmare" Entirely in Quotes

Leslie Thatcher, Truthout Book Review: "I am having Sarah Palin nightmares. Few things draw in readers and garner clicks more reliably than articles (or, even better, pictures) of Sarah Palin. We can't look away. Like everyone else, I can barely take the waves of embarrassment that come from watching someone do something so badly. My cringe reflex is exhausted."

A Peek Inside Sarah Palin's Diary

Bernard Weiner, Truthout: "Dear Diary: It's been helter-skelter around here these days. Actually, there is no 'here.' I'm on the road every day, mostly at book signings for 'Going Rogue.' Turns out I'm real popular in the real America. You betcha."

Palin Failed to Lead on Oil and Gas Safety in Alaska

Dahr Jamail, Truthout: "There have been several recent oil spills and other environmental problems linked to the oil/gas production industry in Alaska. On December 23, a tugboat hit the Bligh Reef, the same reef struck by the Exxon Valdez 20 years ago. The recent grounding may have caused as much as 33,500 gallons of diesel fuel to spill into Prince William Sound."

Why I don’t write about Sarah Palin’s Facebook posts

Washington Independent
by David Weigel

12/23/09

The problem is that Palin has put the political press in a submissive position, one in which the only information it prints about her comes from prepared statements or from Q&As with friendly interviewers. This isn’t something most politicians get away with, or would be allowed to get away with. But Palin has leveraged her celebrity — her ability to get ratings, the ardor of her fans and the bitterness of her critics — to win a truly unique relationship with the press. She is allowed to shape the public debate without actually engaging in it...

Palin rewrites history on “death panels”

Salon
by Alex Koppelman

12/23/09

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin just can’t let go of her ‘death panels’ myth. After getting back on the subject — which Politifact recently named ‘Lie of the Year’ — on Twitter, on Wednesday Palin’s Facebook page played host to yet another missive about it. This time, she sought to rewrite her own history, rather incredibly asserting that what she was referring to when she first mentioned ‘death panels’ was an advisory board she claims would lead to healthcare rationing...

Palin uses PAC to buy her own book

ABC News

02/01/10

Sarah Palin has been using her political action committee to buy up thousands of copies of her book, ‘Going Rogue,’ in order to mail copies of the memoir to her donors, newly filed campaign records show. The former Alaska governor and 2008 Republican vice presidential candidate had her political organization spend more than $63,000 on what her reports describe as ‘books for fundraising donor fulfillment.’ The payments went to Harper Collins, her publisher, and in some instances to HSP Direct, a Virginia-based direct mail fundraising firm that serves a number of well-known conservative politicians and pundits...

Palin, Fox, 'Jesus on Acid' and the End of the World

By Frank Schaeffer

She's all for unbridled US military action. She's for this because theologically speaking the more war the better, at least in the Middle East. Jesus needs war to fulfill "prophecy" so he can "come back"!
