Former Gov. Sarah Palin (R-AK) got caught by CNN’s “caucus cam” in Wasilla — and the whole CNN team to the opportunity to quiz her about the the GOP primary, her potential candidacy and, of course, her opinion on the Sandra Fluke affair. Unsurprisingly, Palin used the opportunity to call the liberal media hypocrites. “I think the definition of hypocrisy is for Rush Limbaugh to have been called out, force to apologize and retract what it is that he said in exercising his first amendment rights,” she said, “and never is the same applied to the leftist radicals who say such horrible things about the handicapped, about women, the defenseless.”
Palin was not ready to tell the cameras her choice for the GOP nomination, telling CNN, “I want to see the process continue, more debate about who it is that can bust through the Orwellian Obama rhetoric and pandering that we see in the incumbent, who can bust through that with facts, with history, with logic, with common sense in order for American voters to understand we have a choice,” indicating that she likely didn’t cast a ballot for former Gov. Mitt Romney (R-AK).
When asked, as she inevitably is, about her potential candidacy in 2016, she said, “Anything in this life, in this world is possible. Anything is possible for an American,” and declined to say that she wasn’t interested. “I would seriously consider whatever I can do to help our country,” she added.

Former Gov. Sarah Palin... more
It now seems clear why the staff to former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin didn't want anyone to bring recording devices or cell phones to her speech Friday night.
Even news outlets like Politico -- which have prominently featured Dick Cheney's terror jeremiads -- would have been likely to lampoon her.
But the ban on recording devices didn't stop them. Politico says they bought three tickets to Palin's Wisconsin speech and then penned a write-up. Their review was somewhat grim, taking aim at Palin's frequent use of the words "bogus" and "awesome" and delivering a strange anecdote about dollar coins.
"Palin had remarks prepared but frequently wandered off-script to make a point, offering audience members a casual “awesome” or “bogus” in discussing otherwise weighty topics," Politico's Jonathan Martin wrote in his review.
He quotes Palin as saying, “It is so bogus that society is sending a message right now and has been for probably the last 40 years that a woman isn’t strong enough or smart enough to be able to pursue an education, a career and her rights and still let her baby live.”
"Other Palin touchstones included: praise for the military, jeers for the “the liberal media” and a general manner of speaking that often veered into rhetorical culs-de-sac," he continued.
Palin didn't draw supporters to their feet: "While she drew applause during her remarks, Palin’s extemporaneous and frequently discursive style was such that she never truly roused a true-believing crowd as passionate about the issue at hand as she. Not once during her address did they rise to their feet."
They did stand at the end, however.
She then got a standing ovation from most of the crowd, but a few had begun to leave before she even finished and within seconds of her concluding, scores more got up and put on their jackets as they walked away.
In addition to the suggestion that government officials would consider hastening the death of the infirm or handicapped, she began her remarks with a puzzling commentary on the design of newly minted dollar coins.
Noting that there had been a lot of “change” of late, Palin recalled a recent conversation with a friend about how the phrase “In God We Trust” had been moved to the edge of the new coins.
“Who calls a shot like that?” she demanded. “Who makes a decision like that?”
She added: “It’s a disturbing trend.”
The decision to put "IN GOD WE TRUST" on the edges of presidential dollar coins has received little attention from the press, but was reversed in 2007, before President Barack Obama took office. Sens. Sam Brownback (R-KS) and Robert Byrd (D-WV) sponsored legislation to move the motto back to the front face of the coins.
"It is important that our national motto, 'In God We Trust,' is prominently displayed on all of our currency," Brownback said. "We should not relegate our heritage to the side."
Some of Palin's recent speeches have also received lackluster reviews. At a recent speech in Hong Kong (which also banned the press) some delegates purportedly "walked out in disgust."http://rawstory.com/2009/11/palin-speech-abortion-opponents-mocked-describes-weighty-to... more
ANCHORAGE, Alaska (CNN) – Sarah Palin’s most recent visit to Alaska may have been her last – at least until Election Day.
At a rally in Anchorage on Saturday morning, there was a wistful note in Palin’s voice as she spoke about the coming weeks of campaigning.
Her speech came after spending two days in her home state doing an interview with ABC News and seeing her eldest son off to Iraq. Palin spent two nights at her home in Wasilla overlooking Lake Lucille.
“We've got a little travel planned for the next 52 days,” Palin said, “but I'll be home come November and I would like to bring along my friend — our friend Senator John McCain as the President-elect.”
The governor said she will take comfort in having her husband Todd at her side throughout the campaign. And she promised to keep Alaska in mind while on the road.
Palin noted that she has been criticized for governing a sparsely populated state, but, she said, “thank you God for that, because we’re small enough to be family.”
“So Alaska, the lessons you have taught me in these years of service as a mayor and as a commissioner and then as a governor, I thank you for what you have instilled in me,” she said. “There is no better place to come from than Alaska.”
At the airport before departing for a campaign stop in Reno, Nevada, Palin hugged family members goodbye on the tarmac and waved to television cameras before taking off.ANCHORAGE, Alaska (CNN) – Sarah Palin’s most recent visit to Alaska may... more

After a brief trip back to Alaska to prove her toughness with a wrestling match against a bear and a speech to the Wasilla PTA belittling “city folk who eat cheese and waste everyone’s time trying to organize things,” upstart Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin and her children are set to begin a bizarre cross country campaign trek billed as a combination of church revival, carnival sideshow and dysfunctional family sitcom.
McCain campaign sources have told CAP News that Palin has been asked to “dress down” for the trip to accenuate her relatively good looks and beauty pageant past.
“We are trying to get her in some warm-weather climates,” said a Republican operative. “Then give her a chance to maybe unbutton the top clasp on that blouse, let her hair down a bit, maybe whip off those glasses in a provactive way with a little soul/funk number playing in the background.
“We think it’s a winning strategy.”
The McCain campaign will also try to embrace the sticky subject of 17-year-old Bristol Palin’s unwed pregnancy with having the teenager perform a Karaoke serenade of Great Grandpapa Don’t Preach to the 72-year-old nominee during a video appearance.
“We’re hoping the ‘I’m keeping my baby!’ line will be a big applause-getter in the Heartland,” the GOP strategist gushed.
Republicans have been trying to term Bristol’s knocked-up revelation as a simple misunderstanding and a cute example of small-town life.
“When her mom was elected governor and she was told she’d be moving to Juneau she thought they wanted her to be More like Juno,” the strategist claimed. “But she’s getting married, so that should solve everything. I’m sure it will last.”
Bristol’s “fiance through acclimation” was less enthused about the attention. But Levi Johnson, who had a self-recorded version of Bristol’s Mom Has Got It Going On on his MySpace page taken down along with his assertion that he never wants to have kids, has reportedly taken solace in the idea that a Republican victory is “my ticket out of this iceberg town.”
Meanwhile, some rumors in the liberal blogsosphere persist about Bristol’s pregnancy, but have been wildly refuted.
“I’ve never even been to Alaska,” said a disheveled and disgraced former Democratic candidate John Edwards in a prepared statement.
Efforts to confirm the schedule were unsuccessful since, despite repeated requests from CAP News and other outlets, the McCain campaign said none of the Palins would be available for any interviews between now and Election Day.
“We think it’s in our best interest not to have any of them go off-script,” determined the GOP speechwriter.After a brief trip back to Alaska to prove her toughness with a wrestling match... more

Ok readers I really have no idea what to make of this one….
The Daily Kos and several other sites are currently reporting that John McCains new running mate, Governor Sarah Palin, may not being exactly straightforward about her son Trig Paxson Van Palin.
They are saying he is her grandson and his mother is really Gov. Palin’s teenage daughter Bristol…
I guess this all starts back in March when Ms. Palin announced she was prego… and that she was already about seven months along…
The news that the pregnancy is so advanced astonished all who heard it, because the governor didn’t look seven months pregnant.
Then On Friday, April 18th, 2008, Sarah and her husband Todd were in Dallas, Texas for a Republican Governor's Convention.
They had been in town for three days already, but Sarah had yet to give her keynote speaker address on energy policy. Early Friday morning at 4:00am, Sarah began leaking amniotic fluid. Instead of checking into a hospital, she instead made a call to her doctor, and then delivered the keynote speech.
This story get even stranger from here, because instead of rushing to a Dallas medical facility that could treat a mother who's amniotic fluid has been draining for hours Sarah instead opted to... Fly all the way back from Texas to Alaska.
Now Like I said, I don’t know what to make of this…. But when my water broke and I went into labor, making speeches and getting on a plane to anyplace was the last thing I was going to do… Let alone make an 8 hour flight from Texas to Alaska... But hey that is just me....

The McCain campaign calls her a “tough executive who has demonstrated” readiness to be president. The Republican National Committee calls her a “conservative star with the talent, energy and family support necessary to carry out common sense policies.”
But the Obama campaign calls her a candidate with “the thinnest foreign policy experience in history” who is “currently under investigation in her own state.” And one of the Senate’s top Democrats, Charles Schumer, said that although she is “a fine person, her lack of experience makes the thought of her assuming the presidency troubling.”
What do we know about Sarah Palin, the 44-year-old first-ever female governor of Alaska, wife and mother of five, and now GOP vice presidential nominee?
On Friday, a new part of her identity dominated the political scene: game-changer.
She enters an already historic election, knowing well two of the biggest things McCain needs her to do: shore up votes among social conservatives and win over disaffected Hillary Clinton-supporting Democrats, many of them women.
