Sarah Palin book sales of Going Rogue, Goes Nuclear; Updated

UPDATE: The Book Cover is Now Revealed

Newly Revealed cover for Sarah's Book

Newly Revealed cover for Sarah's Book

Sarah Palin has broken the all time record for  non-fiction pre-release book sales with her new Book, Going Rogue: An American Life, in which she lays out her vision for an America that is strong, independent, and free.

The poor Socialists are suffering even more, their usual bouts of Palin Derangement Syndrome, but what can they say to defend themselves? Obama made me do it? (gentle snicker)

Without Doubt, the Socialists are even more afraid of her now than ever before. The worse Obama does, the more their Socialist Palin Derangement Syndrome fairs up. Poor Babies…

Will they try to deny that her new book is Number One in Sales 48 hours after going online for pre-release sale? Deny that Sarah Palin’s Mega-Popularity makes Obama look like a New Black Panther with a night stick at a 2008 Voting Poll?

Hey, it is not Sarah’s fault Obama associated himself with Radical Militant Marxists, ACORN/SEIU thugs, and ‘The Socialist Slumlord Gangs of Chicago.’

All that was your ‘brother’ Barack’s doing, right Valerie Jarrett? Or, should I call you Valerie Cutter? But it was all Barack’s fault, he was ripe for the picking, huh Valerie? Did George Soros pay you a bounty?

And for the record… I ordered MY copy of Going Rogue: An American Life this morning. I wanted to make sure I got my order in before it is sold out. I can only dream that she may someday autograph it for me!

As Beck states, if McCain would have won, we would have more of the same, now the people are demanding change due to Obamas, leftist agenda!! As more time passes, the more pissed we become, and the more real change will take place. Throw all the bums out!!

    In a way you might say that Obama did bring about Change and Hope. Just not the kind he was thinking of.

    They are out in the open about their love for Communism?

    New Unemployment Claims Rise Unexpectedly to 551,000

    Now automakers are starting to feel the effect. GM’s sales plunged 45 percent to 155,679 vehicles in September, compared with a year earlier. Chrysler sold only 62,197 vehicles last month, down 42 percent.

    Unemployment May Hit 10.3% by March 2010: Economist

    Stocks tumbled Thursday after disappointing ISM manufacturing and initial weekly jobless claims reports. Is the economy taking a breather or should investors prepare for a possible second “dip” in the recession? John Lonski, chief economist at Moody’s Investors Service, shared his outlook with CNBC.

    “The data was passable—it wasn’t necessarily bad for the economic outlook,” Lonski said.

    “This is going to be an uninspiring, lackluster economic recovery. But there is nothing in the recent data that strongly suggests that the risks of a double-dip recession have increased measurably.”

    Lonski expects the real GDP figures to grow by 3.7 percent in the third quarter and to slow in the fourth.

    “The unemployment rate is going to rise further,” he said. “It’s not going to peak until March of 2010, at 10.3 percent. Then it falls very slowly to the end of 2010, [but] the unemployment rate still may be above the 9 percent mark.”

    On a more optimistic note, however, Lonski said he sees some good signs on the corporate credit front.

    “We’ve had corporate bond yield spreads come in significantly and this may be a foreshadowing a much improved performance by corporate debt repayment in 2010, and, in turn, this may flow over to household debt repayment, but not right away,” he said.

    “We’ll have to wait for these improvements to materialize

  13. Foxwood says:

    If Healthcare goes through, the shovel ready jobs will be for the new undertaker jobs that will come about and thrive.

  14. Foxwood says:


    You can say AFOP for most of what Obutthole has done so far, and I believe in the future as well.

  15. tellitlikeitis says:

    I agree Foxwood, With national health care they will need to train people to be shovel ready to dig graves for all the people that die waiting for health care.

    Detroit: Too broke to bury their dead
    Money to bury Detroit’s poor has dried up, forcing struggling families to abandon their loved ones in the morgue freezer.

    DETROIT ( — At 1300 E. Warren St., you can smell the plight of Detroit.

    Inside the Wayne County morgue in midtown Detroit, 67 bodies are piled up, unclaimed, in the freezing temperatures. Neither the families nor the county can afford to bury the corpses. So they stack up inside the freezer.

    Albert Samuels, chief investigator for the morgue, said he has never seen anything like it during his 13 years on the job. “Some people don’t come forward even though they know the people are here,” said the former Detroit cop. “They don’t have the money.”

    Lifelong Detroit residents Darrell and Cheryl Vickers understand this firsthand. On a chilly September morning they had to visit the freezer to identify the body of Darrell’s aunt, Nancy Graham — and say their goodbyes.

    The couple, already financially strained, don’t have the $695 needed to cremate her. Other family members, mostly in Florida, don’t have the means to contribute, either. In fact, when Darrell’s grandmother passed recently, his father paid for the cremation on a credit card — at 21% interest.

    So the Vickers had to leave their aunt behind. Body number 67.

    “It’s devastating to a family not to be able to take care of their own,” said Darrell. “But there’s really no way to come up with that kind of cash in today’s society. There’s just no way.”

    The number of unclaimed corpses at the Wayne County morgue is at a record high, having tripled since 2000. The reason for the pile-up is twofold: One, unemployment in the area is approaching 28%, and many people, like the Vickers, can’t afford last rites; two, the county’s $21,000 annual budget to bury unclaimed bodies ran out in June.

    “One way we look back at a culture is how they dispose of their dead,” said the county’s chief medical examiner, Carl Schmidt, who has been in his position for 15 years. “We see people here that society was not taking care of before they died — and society is having difficulty taking care of them after they are dead.”

    Tellit, Foxwood did you guys get my email concerning Detroit. I think it would make a great blog post if anyone is interested please use what I sent you.

    Backlash builds against support of PolanskiStory Highlights

    (CNN) — While several high-profile actors and directors have rallied around Roman Polanski, not everyone in Hollywood believes he should be freed and forgiven.

    The case surrounding the arrest of director Roman Polanski has both supporters and critics.

    In the face of a petition signed by notables such as Woody Allen, Martin Scorsese and John Landis calling for the immediate release of Polanski following his detainment in Switzerland, a backlash is building against such support.

    “I can’t believe that Hollywood has separated itself so completely from American morality,” said Paul Petersen, a former child actor and president of A Minor Consideration, which advocates on behalf of young performers. “It is yet another case of Hollywood being out of sync with most of America.”

    Polanski pleaded guilty in 1977 to having unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor, but fled the United States before he could be sentenced.

    In the years since, the director known for “Chinatown” and “Rosemary’s Baby” settled in France and avoided authorities until he was arrested Saturday while on his way to the Zurich Film Festival.

    In the aftermath of Polanski’s arrest last weekend, a number of performers — including Penelope Cruz, Tilda Swinton and Monica Bellucci — appear as supporters on a petition which states, “Roman Polanski is a French citizen, a renown and international artist now facing extradition. This extradition, if it takes place, will be heavy in consequences and will take away his freedom.”

    Polanski’s detention has stirred debate over whether he should be returned to the United States to face possible imprisonment.

    Courts did more harm than Polanski
    Supporters make note of his age, the years that have passed, his talent and the victim’s own assertion that pursuing the case opens fresh wounds for her as reasons the director should be left alone.

    But critics observe that Polanski’s supporters might be downplaying his crime.

    “I don’t think a lot of people take the sexual assault of children very seriously at all, and it’s something we battle everyday,” said Grier Weeks, executive director of Protect, a national organization to protect children.

    “We say at Protect that we are the most bipartisan group in America because we’ve got everyone from Hollywood liberals like Alison Arngrim [Nellie Oleson] from ‘Little House on the Prairie’ to extremely conservative people. … But I will say with the notable exception of a few people from Hollywood, we get blank stares from some of that crowd.”

    Weeks pointed to the example of a discussion on ABC’s “The View,” in which panelist and actress Whoopi Goldberg made the comment that she didn’t believe the original charges against Polanski were for “rape-rape,” as what he views as a pervasive attitude.

    “I assume [Goldberg] regrets saying what she said, but she really didn’t say anything that is not under the surface anyway,” Weeks said. “This is just the attitude, that children are property and crimes against them are not real crimes.” Watch a discussion of about Polanski’s supporters »

    Goldberg’s fellow panelist, Sherri Shepherd, said during the show that she believed Polanski should still be punished.

    On Twitter, she tweeted, “Whew… long day at ‘The View’… two shows today… hot debate over the Statutory Rapist Polanski. 45-year-old man plies a 13-yr-old w/drugs & Liquor and anally & orally penetrates her w/o her consent is a RAPIST. We hunt down 75-year-old Nazis. We must protect our children.”

    Actress Kirstie Alley wrote on Twitter “JUST FOR THE RECORD….RAPE IS RAPE…this is one HOLLYWOOD STAR who does not CELEBRATE or DEFEND Roman Polanski..his ART did not RAPE her.”

    “The Biggest Loser” trainer Jillian Michaels said “If she’s [the victim] OK and feels that they are resolved then who are we to say” referring to the now adult victim, Samantha Geimer.

    Despite that, Michaels said, “If somebody drugged and raped my 13-year-old I’d shoot them.” Watch stars discuss Polanski’s arrest »

    Terry O’Neill, president of the National Organization for Women, said it is understandable that Geimer would want to move on given what has occurred.

    “I think that it’s deplorable that some celebrities, and I emphasis the word ‘some,’ are supporting rape, supporting the destruction of the life of a 13-year-old girl,” O’Neill said. “You look at what happened to the victim in this case and how she was re-victimized over and over again. First by [Polanski] himself when he claimed it was consensual, then by his pals all powerful, wealthy celebrities who supported him, then by the media who characterized her as the little Lolita, the 13-year-old temptress.”

    Petersen said he believes there are many in the industry who would like to speak up against the support Polanski has received.

    “They are afraid of the Hollywood power structure that is tilted distinctly to the left and plays favorites,” Petersen said.

    Thomas J. Reese, S.J., a senior fellow at the Woodstock Theological Center at Georgetown University, wrote a piece for The Washington Post’s “On Faith” column titled “Father Polanski Would Go to Jail.”

    Reese said Hollywood might learn a lesson from the scandals involving pedophiles and the Catholic Church.

    “I think that perhaps there is a sense of entitlement that comes with being a celebrity and a star and part of that whole industry where people are always fawning over them and idolizing them,” Reese said. “I think that kind of goes to your head and makes you think that you are special and above the law. The clergy used to think that at one time, inaccurately, and it’s just not a healthy attitude.”

    On Wednesday, the BBC reported that the French government had dropped its public support for the release of Polanski

    (CNN) — Support for abortion rights has fallen sharply in the past year, with Americans now split roughly 50-50 between those who back legal access to abortion and those who oppose it, according to a new survey.

    Anti-abortion activists demonstrate on Capitol Hill in Washington last month.

    The findings mark a dramatic shift in public opinion — supporters of abortion rights have clearly outnumbered opponents for many years, with one brief exception, studies have shown.

    But only 47 percent of Americans now feel abortion should be legal in all or most cases — a drop from 54 percent a year ago, according to the poll.

    Meanwhile, 45 percent say it should be illegal in all or most cases. That’s up from 41 percent a year ago.

    Given the survey’s margin of error, the two camps are statistically tied.

    “These data suggest that a number of people have changed their minds in the past year,” said Gregory Smith of the Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life, one of the survey’s authors.

    And it’s not only one type of person or group whose opinion has changed, he said.

    “There was a drop seen in many, many demographics: men and women, people with a college degree and those with less education, people with various religious backgrounds,” he said.

    The only groups whose opinions on abortion did not change were African-Americans — who tend to oppose it — and young people and those not affiliated with any particular religion, who tend to say it should be legal, he said.

    “Beyond that, this movement [was] across the board,” he told CNN by phone.

    He suspects the election of President Obama — a pro-choice Democrat — may be one cause of the shift.

    “Look at the timing,” he said. “Through October of last year, the findings were consistent, with supporters outnumbering opponents,” he said.

    Pew first noticed the change in public opinion in a survey in April, and did a larger study in August to confirm it.

    Opponents of abortion feel more strongly about it than supporters of legal access feel about their stand, he said.

    “Some people, particularly on the right, have become more entrenched, more certain of their own positions on abortion,” he said.

    “Conservative Republicans are more certain about the correctness of their own position and less likely to say they want to see compromise. They are concerned that Obama will go too far in supporting abortion rights as president,” he said. “On the left, you see some relaxing of views.”

    But the survey also found that the number of people who felt passionately about abortion is falling.

    About four out of 10 people in the survey could not define Obama’s position on abortion.

    “That is an indicator that although opinions have moved, this issue right now is not at the top of the political debate,” Smith said.

    But the subject has crept into the battle to reform America’s health care system, with opponents of abortion in both parties determined to prevent federal dollars from funding abortions. Under the Hyde amendment, federal money currently can be used to pay for abortions only in case of rape, incest and to protect the life of the mother.

    There have been at least two abortion-related murders in the U.S. this year — one on each side.

    George Tiller, a doctor known for performing abortions, was killed in May.

    Tiller was shot in the head at point-blank range on May 31 as services began at Reformation Lutheran Church in Wichita, Kansas. Scott Roeder, a 51-year-old anti-abortion activist, is charged in Tiller’s killing. He has pleaded not guilty.

    Anti-abortion activist Jim Pouillon, 63, was shot dead outside a school in Owosso, Michigan, on September 11.

    Harlan James Drake, 33, is accused of shooting him and Michael Fuoss, 61, in separate locations that day.

    Authorities do not believe that Drake knew Pouillon; they say he was offended by anti-abortion material that Pouillon had displayed across from the school all week, according to Sara Edwards of the county prosecutor’s office.

    The Supreme Court — the country’s main legal battleground on abortion — has ruled only once on the hot-button subject since 1992, in a close 2007 verdict that upheld federal restrictions on a controversial late-term abortion procedure called “partial birth abortion” by its opponents.

    Sonia Sotomayor, then a federal appeals court judge, deflected questions about abortion this summer when she faced Senate confirmation hearings for a seat on the Supreme Court. She was confirmed. The court has not yet announced any abortion-related cases on its 2009-2010 docket.
    The new findings come from a telephone survey of more than 4,000 adults in August 2009, conducted by the Washington-based Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life and the Pew Research Center for The People

  41. VotingFemale says:


    Sarah rocks the boat… there are women who want to keep her down simply because of jealousy and their own lack of self worth as women.

    Sarah rocks the boat for some people who have ideas of what a woman should and should not “be allowed” to do and be.

    I say F them all to hell… left and right.

  42. VotingFemale says:

    It is wired in us to go into Red Alert when our man starts paying attention to another woman… the prettier and smarter and charming she is… the redder the alert. And I think Sarah sets off the alarm bells with some women… this is in addition to women who actively suppress women who are achievers for breaking out pre-existing molds and flying with eagles… where subservient obedient women do not dare.

    There is a kind of anti-female racism concerning the “social role of women” and it is approved in this society and other societies without a blink of an eye… I saw it happen on the O’Reilly show last evening re: some of the comments made by Miller whom I believe is a arrogant sexist.

    Samiam, are you aware Obama’s White House crew created a blog at to respond to Glenn Beck and publish other messages in the blogosphere?

    I suspect it will only be a matter of time before the Obama Gang start directly addressing individual bloggers with their’s political ObamaBlog.

    This shows the extremely amateurish level of the Occupant of the Office of the President of the United States. Obama diminished the office with stunts like calling out Glenn Beck with an official White House Blog. And he has never understood that and the worldwide public opinion fallout from such behavior of a US President… he just doesn’t get it.

    I have seen it and it is a hoot! Tell me the white house was unaware of how corrupt ACORN was and is and and how much money ACORN is/was getting from the Federal Government and State and Local governments!

    They have obviously been watching Glenn Beck all along, as has the Socialist Fringe Media (SFM) …and the appearance of their new blog at is tacit proof of that.

    see: Official White House Website Attacks Beck, Fox News

    Official White House Website Attacks Beck, Fox News [Guy Benson]

    Perhaps I’ve totally missed the boat on this, but is it customary for the official White House website to attack individual political commentators and TV networks? The Obama administration’s has an entire page dedicated to fact-checking Glenn Beck on a number of issues, including his comments regarding Chicago’s bid for the 2016 Summer Olympics:

    Reality Check: Trying to Turn a Point of Pride into a Moment of Shame

    Last night Fox News continued its disregard for the facts in an attempt to smear the Administration’s efforts to win the Olympics for the United States. In the past, hosting the Olympics has been a source of pride and unity for the country, but once again Fox News’ Glenn Beck program has shown that nothing is worthy of respect if it can be used as part of a partisan attack to boost ratings.

    Feel free to read the “rhetoric vs reality” talking points that follow, punctuated with an exhortation for readers to check out “even more Fox lies” on another site.

    Shouldn’t the White House leave this type of petty political finger-wagging to lefty groups like Media Matters? It seems utterly beneath the Office of the President of the United States to be authoring snarky blog posts assailing critics in the media. Unless I missed this type of thing in the past, this represents yet another unseemly change brought about by this hyper-partisan White House.


    I should do a blogpost about that! 😉

    BEIJING — The colorful military parade held on China’s 60th anniversary of communist rule Thursday was a show of strength by a nation that has rarely been more confident, analysts say.

    China used the celebration to showcase its first military parade in a decade with an arsenal of fighter jets, tanks, ballistic missiles and armored personnel carriers. The choreographed display included 100,000 marchers, 80,000 children, 8,000 military servicemembers and 151 planes.

    President Hu Jintao, who is also head of the military and ruling Communist Party, told the watching nation that the Chinese people were “full of confidence” about the future.

    “Today, a socialist China geared to modernization, the world and the future has stood rock-firm in the east of the world,” he said.

    After the parade, a pageant highlighted China’s dramatic achievements in recent years. Floats depicted sending men into space and the country’s transportation network that will carry 565 million people over the next eight days of the public holiday, the state-run Xinhua News Agency said.

    The celebration marks the day in 1949 when Chairman Mao Zedong’s revolution overthrew Chiang Kai-shek’s Nationalists, establishing the People’s Republic of China and one-party communist rule. In the decades since, the nation has grown into the world’s third-largest economy and a global power.

    “China has great reason to be confident, as its economy is one of the world’s largest, and it has trade relations with most nations,” said Dean Cheng of the Heritage Foundation, a conservative think tank. “But it is when China looks inward that there’s a question of how much confidence there can be.”

    He points to its current challenges: ethnic unrest and riots in the western regions of Xinjiang and Tibet, rising unemployment, corruption and severe pollution.

    He also notes that China’s armed forces — the largest in the world — have improved but remain untested. “It’s one thing to roll in neat … columns along a highway, but China’s military has not fought a war in 30 years,” Cheng said.

    David Shambaugh, a professor at George Washington University who specializes in China, said Hu’s address Thursday was mostly “propagandistic sloganeering.”

    “There was no vision for the nation,” he said.

    He said the parade showed “this is a military that has made more progress in the last 10 years than in the previous 50.”

    Russell Moses, a Beijing-based political analyst, said China’s leaders are “right to congratulate themselves, but the real test is not how they cope with success but how they address ongoing inadequacies.”

    Chief among those is “the reluctance to move as quickly in the realm of political restructuring, as they have in economic reform. When they get nervous, they don’t open up, they clamp down,” he said.

    Even Thursday’s parade was a spectacle to watch on TV, as tight security excluded the public from the parade route through Tiananmen Square.

    In Hong Kong, which is part of China but has Western-style civil liberties as part of its special semiautonomous status, about 200 people protested Thursday, denouncing China’s human rights record. The protesters marched through the downtown financial district chanting, “We want human rights. We don’t want a sanitized National Day.”

    US Unemployment May Hit 15% in 2010: Strategist

    Unemployment can go as high as 12 to 15 percent in the United States next year, as the economic situation will get worse and more banks will go bankrupt, Nicu Harajchi, CEO at N1 Asset Management, told CNBC Friday.

    “We expect the (unemployment) numbers to increase… we believe that going into the fourth quarter we are going to see increased unemployment and I also think that in 2010 we are going to see somewhere between 12 to 15 percent in the US,” Harajchi told “Worldwide Exchange.”

    Liquidity will start being withdrawn from financial markets, making things more difficult, he added.

    “We are very pessimistic on 2010 because this is when we think that all that liquidity that has been pushed into the markets by the central banks and by the Fed, at some point they’re going to come and they’re going to need some of that money back,” Harajchi said.

    Three banks went bankrupt in 2007, 25 in 2008 and this year the number of US banks that went bankrupt is nearly 100.

    “We think that 2010 is going to be a much worse year,” he said.

    In Europe, the banking sector, which has rallied 162 percent since March, was among the top losers Friday on concerns over the growth picture.

    Palin’s Revenge: Who’s Laughing Now?
    By C. Edmund Wright

    Now correct me if I am wrong, but didn’t I hear the Jurassic media bury the career of Sarah Palin just last July? And weren’t they joined in this mockery by the so-called conservative elites like David Brooks and Karl Rove and Joe Scarborough and so on?

    Wasn’t Mo Dowd just delirious in fact that the wicked witch (of her world) was dead?

    You betcha.

    Well, just who is looking out of touch and foolish now? Hint: It isn’t the Killa from Wasilla. And yes, I think that is her Brinks Truck in fact. One of them anyway.

    The temptation here is to rub the seven million dollar book advance in the face of all her naysayers — then add that the book is coming out early and in fact breaking all kinds of sales records though not even edited yet. But we won’t do that for Mo’s sake.

    Another temptation is to chide the Jurassics and the elites who were snickering at the thought she could command the six figures fees the big boys get for speaking engagements — with the reports that she is currently sifting through some eleven hundred offers. Cha-ching. We won’t make a big deal over that either. It might make Colin Powell blush.

    What is the real story here is that given a set of singularly difficult circumstances, Governor Palin made a counter-intuitive and gutsy decision that has already proven right for all parties involved. We call that brilliance. We call that effective leadership.

    Perhaps inside the beltway, those measures of wisdom and intelligence and instinctive leadership are out of date. All too often in that world, decisions are made by what is the safe play and by what will play well with the pundits. Damn the consequences to others, just pull that focus group report and make sure we look good to the media.

    That was not how Palin measured her decision. She was willing to look outside the box for a possibility, and when she found an idea that worked for everyone she grabbed it. Quickly. And she never looked back. Why Dan Rather might call that “…courage…”

    Palin did not seem to worry a bit about how her decision would look to the pundit class as she strode to the microphones and confidently gave a shocking announcement that she knew would bring down a hell storm of self-important derision. She did not flinch. She made her decision, announced it, and went about making it work for all involved.

    And it has. It has worked for the state of Alaska, where their small government is no longer burdened by over the top media scrutiny and an endless string of nuisance legal actions. Alaska can get back to being Alaska, and the state is governed by a man who shares Palin’s vision for the state without having one of the biggest media targets in the history of the country painted on his back.

    What? You don’t know his name? Good. Alaskans probably like it that way.

    And the resignation has certainly worked for Palin’s family and the former governor herself no doubt. They no longer have the targets painted on their backs either. They no longer are burdened by a mountain of legal debt and the mountain of legal debt is no longer growing like it was. Win. Win. Win.

    Heck, it looks like the family will be able to travel the entire country at the request of many other people happy to pay their expenses and a nice honorarium as well. That’s not a bad educational experience, and I even doubt the former governor will burden us with stories about how much she has sacrificed while doing all of this jet setting.

    Along the way, she will be exposed to millions and millions of American voters who will see her in person or see local coverage of her appearances. She will curry favor with many Republicans and other conservative candidates across the country. Her rolodex will be engorged with valuable contacts. Her work in this area is likely to have a major impact on the mid-term elections of 2010 in fact. If it goes well for the GOP, she will get much of the credit in all likelihood.

    There will be sound bytes from her on any number of weighty issues. That started last week in Asia in fact. Even Charles Krauthammer will be impressed. By the time 2012 rolls around – just in case she has that year circled in her day planner – any notion of her lack of depth or experience will have been clearly dispelled.

    Tina Fey shooting the moose will be a distant memory. Charlie Gibson will be the one thrown to the curb in his chosen profession. And I doubt Katie Couric will age as gracefully as Sarah Palin will.

    To summarize, every single ramification of Palin’s resignation has come up aces. For her, her family, her state and even for any future political ambitions, it was the right call.

    Even in the one arena the Jurassic media and conservative elites thought they were really expert — politics — Palin has trumped them in that too. It is almost 100% certain that she will come in to the year 2012 with a lot more money, a lot more exposure, a lot more commentary on the big issues, a lot more potential campaign workers across the 57 states and a lot more favors owed than she ever could have by hanging around Juneau for two more years. Yes, even in purely political terms, Palin’s business and personal decision has proven to be superior to what the pundits thought she should have done.

    Now of course this is sending the pundit class in the D.C.-Manhattan corridor into the vapors, not to mention shock. They never have been able to make one correct assessment about Palin and her relationship with the American people and their reaction to their own ineptness is to hate Palin herself.

    Millions of Americans are not surprised however. Why do you think so many are buying her book already. You can call those “votes” and also “future campaign contributors.”

    They are not caught off guard by the brilliance of her decision. They knew it all along.

    And I add proudly, so did American Thinker. Our contributing authors penned no less than 9 articles in the two weeks following Palin’s resignation, and every single one of them supported her decision as wise and several pieces were scarily prescient in how they predicted just this type of success for her in light of the decision.

    It is obvious that Palin knew what she was doing all along. Who knows what she will do in 2012. It doesn’t matter at the moment. What matters is that her decision to resign as Governor of Alaska will put her in a far superior position for whatever she does or does not pursue.

    I think that’s hilariously ironic. Betcha she does too. So who’s laughing now?

    The Rumor Attack On Sarah Palin; A Socialist Tool Explained by the Socialist Regulatory Czar, Cass Sunstein

    excerpt from:

    meta-message: A term, widely credited to Gerard Nierenberg, used to refer to messages that are not directly delivered but emerge from between the written or spoken lines.

    The meta-message of Cass Sunstein’s new book delivers a warning to those who would spread Internet “rumors” about Barack Obama.

    The Regulatory Czar’s latest book is entitled Rumors. It purports to be about how rumors spread. To that end, it’s full of remarkable insights such as “Many of us accept false rumors because of either our fears or our hopes.” (p. 6) “Your willingness to believe a rumor will inevitably depend on the information with which you start.” (p. 19) “Sometimes people believe rumors because other people believe them.” (p. 28) Plus the shocking revelation that “Many rumors spread conspiracy theories.” (p. 7)

    Czar Sunstein unwittingly tells Conservatives and other Non-Socialists how to combat Rumor Attacks on Palin…

    excerpt continued…

    The subtitle of the book is “How Falsehoods Spread, Why We Believe Them, What Can Be Done.” The answer to “What Can Be Done” harbors the book’s meta-message. For Sunstein, “part of the answer lies in recognizing that a ‘chilling effect’ on those who would spread destructive falsehood can be an excellent idea.” (p. 5) (His meta-message raises its head.)

    Reworded excerpt to help understand combating Palin Rumors…

    Examples of rumor sources Sunstein did not intend to discuss but applies nontheless…

    If spreads a rumor that Sarah Palin is dumb or that she bans books many people will be affected, because they tend to believe the and other propagators who are also narrowly self-interested.

    When members of the Democratic Party spread rumors about Sarah Palin, they hope to injure not only the reputation and the standing of Sarah Palin but also GOP office holders and the Republican Party as a whole, thus promoting the interests of Socialists.

    Then Sunstein offers another category of rumor propagators as the” generally self-interested.” Like when “Some left-wing websites liked to make absurd and hateful remarks about the alleged relationship between Sarah Palin and the mother of her future son-in-law.”

    Then there are the altruistic propagators. Like “When Keith Olberman, the television talking head at MSNBC, attacked Sarah Palin because of her alleged ethics violations, one of Olberman’s goals might have been to promote values and causes that he cherishes.”

    Sunstein occasionally defends someone from the Right against rumors, but not often. Those few examples read as being disingenuous. His balance clearly slants toward the offended Left.

    He hand wrings over the failure of the Obama campaign’s website to thoroughly rebut rumors about their candidate. He notes that rebutting a rumor may only enhance its spread. (He appears not to factor in the cogency of the rebuttal.)

    So, according to Sunstein, What Can Be Done about false rumors? Well, here’s the ramp-up to his solution:

    “These points should not be taken as a plea for any kind of censorship…Sometimes a chilling effect can be an excellent safeguard…We need, in short, to find ways to discourage the harmful effects of false rumors.” (pp. 10-11)

    Of course, creating a “chilling effect” isn’t censorship.

    On page 78 of the 88-pages book — more accurately, a monograph — the action steps that would accompany Sunstein’s meta-message emerge.

    “Any marketplace requires standards and ground rules; no market can operate as a free-for-all. It is not obvious that the current regulatory system for free speech — the current setting of chill — is the one that we would or should choose for the Internet era.” (p. 78)

    And what might those “standards and ground rules” for the Internet era include?

    * “[A] general right to demand retraction after a clear demonstration that a statement is both false and damaging. If a newspaper of broadcaster or blogger refuses to provide a prominent retraction after a reasonable period of time, it might be liable for at least modest damages.”
    * “On the Internet in particular, people might have a right to ‘notice and take down.’ [T]hose who run websites would be obliged to take down falsehoods upon notice.”
    * “Damage caps and schedules could do a great deal to promote free speech values while also ensuring a measure of deterrence…A cap on damages, alongside liability to establish what is actually true, could work to leverage the propagator’s concern for his reputation to good effect.” (pp. 78-79)

    And, just in case the meta-message isn’t clear, the last sentence in Sunstein’s monograph reads:

    “Some kind of chilling effect on damaging rumors is exceedingly important — not only to protect people against negligence, cruelty, and unjustified damage to their reputations, but also to ensure the proper functioning of democracy itself.” (p. 88)

    You may be asking — So what?

    Well, Cass Sunstein is the Regulatory Czar. He was confirmed by the Senate by a 57-40 vote. Republican Senators among the 57 who voted for confirmation included: Snowe (ME); Collins (ME); Bennett (UT); Hatch (UT); Lugar (IN); and Voinovich (OH).

    If Czar Sunstein is able to enact the “chilling effect” that he proposes in Rumors by the next general election, websites like the American Thinker could become regular targets of retraction demands from the Left, and face the threat of fines for spreading what the Regulatory Czar defines as “rumors.”


    What Moonbats like Sunstein continually fail to comprehend is what is good for the goose is good for the gander.

    Otherwise, Socialism and Communism would have already been outlawed in this country and there would not be a Democratic Party and no Barack Obama.

    Sunstein is just another player in Obama’s shadow government. We should petition the congress to remove these unelected, unaccountable communist czars. They should have no part in our government.

    Jobless Hits 9.8%, But
    That’s Only Half the Story

    Officially, the Labor Dept. says September unemployment inched closer to 10 percent — but, the full jobless picture is more like 17 percent
    when counting those who fell off unemployment and yet have not found a job.

  131. tellitlikeitis says:

    Sam, that doesn’t surprise me. We sent all our jobs to China, India, and the Phillipeans. Maybe if I’m lucky we’ll be neighbors in one of the new tent cities that are springing up all around the country

    Tellit it would be fun if somehow you, Foxwood and I could get together sometime. Maybe a Tea Party or Fema Compound if were not Carefull.

    Actually, I can not believe I worked an entire lifetime only to see it all washed away by this economy.
    I am still in shock and try not to think about it.

    Chicago will not host the 2016 Olympics.

    Rush was a visionary, hoping Obutthole would fail.

    If he can’t get the Olympics here, how do you expect him to talk sense to Iranian leader AiKmypantysinawad?

  139. Foxwood says:

    Ok. I want to hear it you Commie Libs. Explain how great your President is. He can’t “lobby” for the Olympics. He must NOT be the great speaker everyone thinks he is.

    Oh, let me guess the excuse. “This wasn’t an important agenda like the Iranian Crisis is. He does his best on the hard issues.”


  140. Foxwood says:

    Apparently he made a bad choice. Maybe he should have been working on the Iranian Crisis instead of working on Copenhagen.

    The Noble “Sacrifice” of Michelle Obama
    by Michelle Malkin

    It’s hard out there for a first lady of the United States. Take it from travel-weary Michelle Obama. On Tuesday night, she boarded a luxury 757 for Copenhagen. Think of the stairs she had to climb. Oh, the agony of the feet!

    Upon arrival, Mrs. O, her “chit-chat buddy,” Chicago-based talk-show queen Oprah Winfrey, and Chicago powerbroker/interest-conflicted real estate mogul/senior White House adviser Valerie Jarrett immediately embarked on a grueling, grip-and-grin campaign to secure the Olympics for their hometown. Our smile muscles ache in sympathy.

    You will be comforted to know that the gracious FLOTUS feels your pain for her pain. “As much of a sacrifice as people say this is for me or Oprah or the president to come for these few days,” the first lady told a group of fellow Chicago 2016 boosters, “so many of you in this room have been working for years to bring this bid home.” Translation: Thank me, thank you, for all we do.

    Never has self-congratulatory gratitude been raised to such an art form, but there was no time for loyal subjects to dwell. The selflessly indefatigable Michelle Obama had to rush off for an 800-meter wine-and-cheese dash with International Olympic Committee members, followed by a rigorous aerobic Heads of State luncheon hosted by Queen Margrethe II of Denmark and another high-heeled trek to the IOC Opening Ceremony at the Copenhagen Opera House.

    Of course, it’s not entirely clear which “people” out there are saying that the Obamas’ jaunt to Denmark is a “sacrifice.”

    Certainly not the families of the 43 American soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines who have died in Afghanistan since Gen. Stanley McChrystal called for more reinforcements.

    Certainly not the families of the nearly 40 children and teens in Chicago who lost their lives on the out-of-control streets of the Windy City so far this year.

    The first lady’s slip of self-absorption reminds me of a useful passage in Washington Post writer Liza Mundy’s biography of Mrs. Obama. After graduating from Princeton University and Harvard Law School, the bitterly oppressed Michelle Obama headed back to her native Chicago to join the high-powered law firm of Sidley Austin — the ninth largest in the world. There, Mundy’s book reported, the future first lady griped about having to do the duties of a second-year associate while she was a second-year associate — demonstrating the trademark attitude of entitlement and inflated ego that led the law partner who recruited her to later describe her as “perennially dissatisfied.”

    Doing her first job was a burden then. Enjoying the perks of her current job is a “sacrifice” now.

    Michelle Obama has a gift for selling special-interest business-as-usual as public-interest charity. Thus, the insatiable appetite of Chicago’s polite elite for a massive Olympics windfall to crony developers is redefined as a do-good campaign for the children. Said Mrs. Obama:

    “We need all of our children to be exposed to the Olympic ideals that athletes from around the world represent, particularly this time in our nation’s history, where athletics is becoming more of a fleeting opportunity. … When we’re seeing rates of childhood obesity increase, it is so important for us to raise up the platform of fitness and competition and fair play; to teach kids to cheer on the victors and empathize with those in defeat, but most importantly, to recognize that all the hard work that is required to do something special.”

    “Hard work,” you know, like jetting off with your gal pals to schmooze other world leaders, famous athletes and celebrities for a few days on the taxpayers’ dime.

    In the Olympics of the aggrieved, Mrs. Obama gets a gold medal.

    when will the so called competant politicians be aware of the truth that the tea party, 912 coalition, and 10th amemdment people are a real power of diverse citizens from all walks of life and from all parts of the nation. they do not pay us any attention or think that we matter. but we are smart, informed, involved, and we do have that little recognized strength of our vote at the ballot box.
