Madame 45 made another exciting list this week! She was chosen as the most admired women in America in a poll, statistically tied with Secretary Clinton! Woohoo! Of course, I admire her greatly! She's the best boss a Mac could ask for!
Also, apparently Madame's book is selling quite well amongst Pukelosi's constituents, even though the some of the super softy southpaws bookstores are not even selling her book! Buying Madame's book in the land of fruits and nuts is a sign of going very rogue!

Oh well. Who knows how many of Joyless's five viewers actually read?
Monday, December 28, 2009
Madame 45 Made the list of the top 10 communicators of 2009 while the Great Opologizer made the list of 10 worst communicators.
Although it was a bit snarky, as expected, the New York Slimes stated that Madame was a better dresser than FLOTUS.
Madame's book, Going Rogue, has been on the New York Slimes bestseller list for 5 weeks!
According to the tabloid, the Sun, Madame ruined Christmas by killing Rudolph!
Sunday, December 27, 2009
On to the news, Madame used her servant's heart to serve others on Christmas!
Also, she and the BOTUS tweeted an inspirational message on Christmas:
Merry Christmas morning from the Palins! Joy,peace,rest&increased faith for you&your family this season. Jesus is the Reason for the Season!
The BOTUS also reminded me that today is Tripp's birthday! Madame let Willow post that message!
Happy birthday, Tripp!

Todd and I would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas! The Palin family is blessed to all be together among family and friends this Holiday – and that is one of the greatest gifts of all. But while this is a beautiful time of the year for families and friends around the world, we recognize that it is a difficult time of the year for so many others – especially this year. May we remember all those who are lonely or in need on this blessed night, and please join us in saying a special prayer for those away from their loved ones in the service of a grateful nation. May God bless you all and continue to bless our great country.
- Sarah Palin
“Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to men on whom his favor rests.” (Luke 2:14)
I don't know what the softy southpaws will think about this. Madame used the "c" word and she quoted from the "B" word. Oh the horrors! You see Madame says, "Merry Christmas" while the Great Opologizer says "Mao-y Christmas".
From my screen to yours, I'd like to wish you a blessed Christmas.
Tuesday, December 22, 2009
In this awesome post, Madame starts out by calling out the shadiness of Harry " I Don't "Reid "the Bill" and his midnight voting and backroom deals. Then Madame highlighted Senator Demint's discussion of the Independent Medicare Advisory Boards that are in the bill. It sounds to me that the softy southpaws are trying to put lipstick on a "death panel". Not only that, they are trying to make these "death panels" provisions non-amendable!
Madame subsequently called out the interesting accounting of the Congressional Budget Office due to the fact that the bill would begin taxing people years before the plan is implemented.
Madame also took some time to call out Pukelosi who said that Madame's death panel claim was a lie! Botox injections must make people delusional.
Madame called out the political game the softy southpaws are playing with health care. Trying to pass this bill on Christmas Eve. Hey Senators, you aren't Santa. If you pass this bill, all you are doing is putting coal in the stockings of Americans.
Madame ends with her trademark optimism: "This is about politics, not health care. Americans don’t want this bill. Americans don’t like this bill. Washington has stopped listening to us. But we’re paying attention, and 2010 is coming."

10) On "global warming" conference: Copenhgen=arrogance of man2think we can change nature's ways.MUST b good stewards of God's earth,but arrogant&naive2say man overpwers nature
9) Hanukkah:With hope and dedication nothing is impossible, and the Almighty never abandons those who seek the light.
8) On global warming and Copenhagan: Policy decisions require real science and real solutions, not junk science and doomsday scare tactics pushed by an environmental priesthood that capitalizes on the public’s worry and makes them feel that owning an SUV is a “sin” against the planet.
7) On the "controversy" that she rode in an airplane sometimes on the book tour:What’s even funnier is that these same media outlets think it’s shocking that we stay in hotels. I guess they expected us to pitch a tent alongside the road. We love the great outdoors, but such an arrangement is hardly practical for a book tour.
6 )On supporting Doug Hoffman: Political parties must stand for something. When Republicans were in the wilderness in the late 1970s, Ronald Reagan knew that the doctrine of "blurring the lines" between parties was not an appropriate way to win elections. Unfortunately, the Republican Party today has decided to choose a candidate who more than blurs the lines, and there is no real difference between the Democrat and the Republican in this race. This is why Doug Hoffman is running on the Conservative Party's ticket.
5)On energy independence:Bottom line: let’s stop digging ourselves into debt and start drilling for energy independence.
4) On Algore and climategate:Vice President Gore, the Climategate scandal exists. You might even say that it’s sort of like gravity: you simply can’t deny it.
3) On the Austrian RINO and global warming:And while I did look for practical responses to those changes, what I didn’t do was hamstring Alaska’s job creators with burdensome regulations so that I could act “greener than thou” when talking to reporters.
2) On the book tour: I am very, very excited about the upcoming road trip for my book. It will be an honor to meet as many of you as possible!
1)On the "death panels":The America I know and love is not one in which my parents or my baby with Down Syndrome will have to stand in front of Obama’s “death panel” so his bureaucrats can decide, based on a subjective judgment of their “level of productivity in society,” whether they are worthy of health care. Such a system is downright evil.
However, there are still 9 days left in the year. Who knows what she'll else she'll have to say this year?

Copenhgen=arrogance of man2think we can change nature's ways.MUST b good stewards of God's earth,but arrogant&naive2say man overpwers natureHow many people can get media coverage simply because of a tweet?
Madame recognizes that God is in charge and the Great Opologizer seems to think he is...well you know.
Madame has another book signing here in Wasilla on Tuesday!
Friday, December 18, 2009
The big news today though was the amount of money that went to the awesome charities, the Wounded Warriors Project and the Fisher House because Madame donated the jacket she wore on the cover of Going Rogue to be auctioned. Madame was so sweet to donate the jacket. I had so much fun working with her on the book. How much did someone donate to those great organizations to receive Madame's jacket? $57,000. That's $1,000 for every state in the country, at least according to the Great Opologizer!
Speaking of the Great Opologizer, he was in Copenhagen today trying to deal with the whole "climate change" thing. He decided to blame China for the lack of progress that occurred at this conference. Funny, I didn't know George Bush was Chinese.
Wednesday, December 16, 2009
I'd like to focus on a non-paparazzi picture that I ran across here while surfing (the web, not the ocean) today.
This JPEG hearkens back to the days of Rosie the Riveter. Plus, it's cool that the BOTUS is in the picture. If you look closely, the phrase "death panel' is on the BOTUS. Then, of course, there is the "reading material". Madame is stomping on Saul Alinsky's Rules for Radicals, and she has the Bible and what appears to perhaps be the Constitution in her pocket. Take a look at the picture to see the other gems that lie there.
Tuesday, December 15, 2009
We went to work on Facebook with a masterful smackdown of the Austrian RINO. I'm glad I've been able to hibernate the past few days to prepare for this piece! It's so good, yet concise, that I feel compelled to post the whole thing:
Why is Governor Schwarzenegger pushing for the same sorts of policies in Copenhagen that have helped drive his state into record deficits and unemployment? Perhaps he will recall that I live in our nation’s only Arctic state and that I was among the first governors to create a sub-cabinet to deal specifically with climate change. While I and all Alaskans witness the impacts of changes in weather patterns firsthand, I have repeatedly said that we can’t primarily blame man’s activities for those changes. And while I did look for practical responses to those changes, what I didn’t do was hamstring Alaska’s job creators with burdensome regulations so that I could act “greener than thou” when talking to reporters.Wow! Madame smacks down the Austrian RINO on his environmental policies that are hampering his state's economy, and she highlights all of her accomplishments. Bravo! Madame's right; she didn't acting greener than thou. She walked the walk and talked the talk with her policies so that they would benefit Alaskans.
- Sarah Palin
We also posted a Hanukkah note for those Jewish rogues out there! Happy Hanukkah! As always, the closing line of Madame's post was pure poetry: "With hope and dedication nothing is impossible, and the Almighty never abandons those who seek the light. " Well said, Madame!
Hasta la vista, babies!

(H/T Conservative Girl with a Voice)
Oh my. It's so good to be home in Alaska. I've been able to hibernate back on Madame's kitchen counter top. It has been great! Madame had two book signings today at Air Force bases in Alaska. I can't wait to see what we have planned for the holidays!
OK, so there has been something that I've wanted to share with you all. As you all know, Madame wrote an excellent op-ed for the Washington Post. Well, apparently Algore, the Climategate denier himself, wrote a poem for his new book about "global warming". Don't tell Madame this, but I'm going to re-write her Washington Post op-ed as a poem in response to Algore's poem.
The polar bear number are growing.
But even so, you are still moaning.
Climate change and weather are cyclical.
But your version of global warming is fictional.
I created a climate change sub cabinet for the nation's only arctic state.
Yet you're too chicken to face up to the truth of climate gate.
The economy will be hurt under cap and tax.
But the President is unwilling to fully face that fact.
Mr. President, you said you would be change we could believe in.
So please won't you boycott Copenhagen.
Perhaps I will be even more poetically inspired now that I'm back home and have the view of Lake Lucille out of my window.
Friday, December 11, 2009
Madame went on the Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien today. Poor David Letterboy! No ratings for you! William Shatner, the Master Thespian himself, had performed dramatic readings of Madame's farewell speech in the past, and he did a dramatic reading of Going Rogue tonight. She decided to give him a taste of his own medicine, perhaps a little bit of comedic health care reform. She read excerpts of Billy Boy's book. Madame is a funny lady and, who knows--maybe even a closet Trekkie! Well, we're off to Alaska! Beam me up, Madame!
Thursday, December 10, 2009
We also posted two Facebook posts. One was about a special auction that Madame is involved in. She is auctioning off the jacket she wore on the cover of her book to benefit wounded soldiers! She's such a giving lady. Madame also posted about our return to Alaska. She will be doing two book signings back at home on Sunday. I've loved our trip throughout the country, but I can't wait to get back to Wasilla!
Wednesday, December 9, 2009
But the real fun came this afternoon, when we went to Facebook to put the smackdown on Algore. Oh, the irony! Madame used the very internet that Algore invented to call him out on his response to Madame's awesome op-ed in the Washington Post. Algore called Madame a climate change "denier". Apparently, Algore doesn't read that paper. The Perky One, do you want ask Algore what he reads? Madame said in her piece that she does believe in climate change; she just doesn't believe that it can be attributed to humans.
Algore also said that climate change is like gravity; it exists. Well, Algore, climategate does exist also! As usual, Madame final line of Facebook was great, "Vice President Gore, the Climategate scandal exists. You might even say that it’s sort of like gravity: you simply can’t deny it."
Tuesday, December 8, 2009
I got to help Madame with a special article that is going to be published in tomorrow's Washington Post about Climategate. It was so much fun writing for a LSM publication instead of just on Facebook! Madame spoke out about the Great Opologizer and the Copenhagen conference putting politics ahead of sound science. She used a few of her signature words and phrases like "clobbered" and "cap and tax". She called for the Great Opologizer to boycott Copenhagen. Wow! I wonder how much carbon emissions could be saved if the Great Opologizer didn't fly over to Denmark.
We're off to Utah and Nevada tomorrow! Good times ahead.
Monday, December 7, 2009
Tonight, Madame is at a Republican fundraiser with perhaps the next Madame speaker, Michele Bachmann (she'd do a heck of a lot better job than Pukelosi). Just think of what the softy southpaws would think about these two ladies:
Even though Madame was super busy today, she did have time for us to do two Facebook postings. One was Madame's recognition of the anniversary of Pearl Harbor. She always remembers history and the American soldier. Madame also posted about the decision to allow some off shore drilling in Alaska. Wow, the Great Opologizer is allowing this?
Well, I'd better get to hibernating. Riding the roller coaster all day made me feel a little weird. I'll report more from our visit to Montana and Colorado tomorrow!
Sunday, December 6, 2009
Then we headed to the heartland. First, we headed to Sioux City, Iowa. People seemed to make a big deal about this, saying things like "2012" and "caucuses". I think that people want to call her Madame 45 just like I do. Then we headed to Sioux Falls, South Dakota. A lot of people seem to think that Madame sounds like she is from the Dakotas.
Tomorrow, we're off to the Minnesota,where it all began for Madame at the RNC convention. I wonder if Madame will let me go shopping at the Mall of America while she signs books.
Saturday, December 5, 2009
Madame had a book signing in Virginia. Her supporters were hard core, with some of them waiting for hours in the snow. More than 2,000 people came to see Madame! Plus, the First Dude has been on the tour the past few days, which has made it particularly awesome!
I know that laptops really don't have much fashion sense. We all look pretty much the same. However, I must say that I absolutely loved Madame's outfit today. Her jacket and her hat were awesome!
Tonight, Madame spoke at the Gridiron Club, and boy was she funny! She could very easily take Tiny Fea's job!
Madame said that if VP Hairplugs wrote a book it would be called Going Rogaine. She also said that she could see the Russian embassy from D.C. You can check out some more of Madame's funny quotes here and here. I always knew that Madame was a hoot, but I'm glad that everyone else gets to see her humor too.
We're off to Iowa and North Dakota tomorrow. The softy southpaws know these places as "flyover country".
Friday, December 4, 2009
Prior to the signings today and after I posted last night, Madame put up two more Facebook notes. One of them was to preemptively call out the crazies who might misconstrue something she said about the Great Opologizer.
The other post was a moving story about the American soldier. It is quite patriotic. If I had tear ducts, I would have cried.
First stop today was Plano. Madame must a bit of the Alaskan weather down with her because the Texans thought it was cold! It's that darn global warming?! Right Algore? The second stop was at Ft. Hood. Madame really appreciates the military. She donated the proceeds from this stop to the families of those who were killed in the shootings at Ft. Hood. She is one giving lady.
Tomorrow we are off to Virginia. Then, Madame is going to speak at the Gridiron Club in Washington D.C. with Bawney Fwank. Oh, that's going to be a hoot!
Thursday, December 3, 2009
Madame also gave an awesome speech at the College of the Ozarks. Super early this morning we posted a Facebook post about the event with some pictures from the tour. Madame included her priorities in the title: faith, family, and freedom. These are the antithesis (I've been using my dictionary) to the Great Opologizer's priorities: me, myself, and I.
Today we traveled to Aw Shucksabee's homestate of Arkansas and to Oklahoma (where the winds come sweeping down the plains). Sorry, I downloaded the Oklahoma! soundtrack on Madame's itunes for the trip.
Tonight, we posted two posts on Facebook. One was a statement from Madame's lawyer, Thomas Van Fine ( he's not a bad looking guy, for a human). He shared some thoughts about the "ethics complaints" that some crazies threw at Madame while she was governor. The other post included Madame's thoughts on the climategate situation. Madame wants the real science not the snake oil science to be discussed. It was good stuff including some signature sarcasm. She told people it wasn't a sin against the earth to drive an SUV. Ha. Good one, Madame.
The BOTUS was busy today. You can check out her work here.
We'll be in Texas tomorrow. Yeehaw!
Tuesday, December 1, 2009
Madame wrote two Facebook posts today! She called out the LSM (Lamestream media) for their "story" about the fact that Madame sometimes has the need to fly on the book tour. Madame pulled out the sarcasm big time for this post. We even did something a little different in this post. We used an emoticon in the title! :) I love it when Madame uses her signature sarcasm. She did so on two instances in this post:
1)" What’s even funnier is that these same media outlets think it’s shocking that we stay in hotels. I guess they expected us to pitch a tent alongside the road. We love the great outdoors, but such an arrangement is hardly practical for a book tour. "
Madame, please don't even tease about that. I'm a city LOTUS. I'm not used to the outdoors!
2)" I’m truly humbled by the response to my book tour by everyday Americans, and if traveling by plane means that I can meet more of these wonderful people, I’ll travel by plane (or bus or train or canoe or dog sled or whatever it takes)."
I think that the LSM is just upset that the First Dude isn't driving Madame around on a snowmachine to get her between book stops. They might even be disappointed that she isn't traveling by helicopter so that she can do some aerial wolf hunting in between tour stops.
Madame also posted a note following the Great Opologizer's speech regarding his Afghan strategy. Madame was pretty diplomatic towards the guy, although she definitely wants to make victory the goal. The Great Opologizer doesn't like to use that word.
I must mention some other news from today. Madame went platinum. No, that doesn't mean that she's a blonde now. It does mean, though that Going Rogue has already sold over 1,000,000 copies! Wow! I feel so proud of Madame. I'm so glad that I got to be a part of that success.
We're off to Missouri for a book signing and Madame is giving a speech tomorrow. Good times are ahead!

Madame Carrying A Magazine with Her Face on a Magazine :)
The Great Opologizer Carrying a GQ Magazine with His Face on the Cover
Madame's Economic Theorist, Adam Smith
The Great Opologizer's Economic Theorist, John Maynard Keynes
Madame's Goal for the Afghan War
The LOTUS' Prediction on the Great
Opologizer's Afghan War Strategy
Sunday, November 29, 2009
Tonight, Madame posted a note on Facebook about the Great Opologizer's upcoming TV appearance (press conference) about his decision on Afghanistan. I have a feeling that the softy southpaws aren't going to like this one. Madame used the "c" word and the "w" word: Christmas and win. I'm not sure if the softy southpaws even really understand the word "win" in the context of war, so let me help them out: win (verb)-to be the victor. Get it? Madame also used the phrase "war on terror". The softy southpaws like to call this "war" an overseas contingency operation, so I hope they actually understand what Madame is saying.
Washington is known for its apples. Being an Apple myself, it was very homey to be here, even if I was amongst the edible kind of Apples. We are heading to Arizona and New Mexico on Tuesday! Woohoo!
Saturday, November 28, 2009
The New York Slimes is reporting that Madame's book has hit number one on their non-fiction bestsellers' list! Occasionally, one of the softy southpaws' books will hit number one, but I think those are miscategorized. They should be listed under fiction instead. Madame also became the first Republican politician to occupy the top of the USA Today's bestsellers' list! Madame, I tip my screen to you! Congratulations!
We're going to get back on the book tour tomorrow here in Washington. I can't wait!
Thursday, November 26, 2009
Madame wanted to be the first to wish you all a happy Thanksgiving so she posted a Facebook note last night!
Madame, always the running lady,participated in a 5K this morning with some of the family in Washington:
Happy Thanksgiving, friends! If you venture out of the house on black Friday, keep your eyes out for a good deal at Best Buy, Wal-mart or elsewhere, you may just find a good deal on your very own LOTUS!
Tuesday, November 24, 2009
Since Madame mentioned me, the BOTUS, on Greta tonight, the LOTUS said that I could fill in for her with tonight's post. Check out the clip above.
We've been traveling through Florida tonight, and the LOTUS and I have been excited to see more of our fruit friends. I am a blackberry, and the LOTUS is an Apple. It was nice to be amongst the citrus fruit today. Madame made stops in Jacksonville, The Villages, and Orlando today to sign books. Madame has been having a blast, but she is losing her voice a bit. Madame also had an interview with Fox and Friends that will air tomorrow.
We did some Facebook work today, posting some pictures from the tour and calling out the Softy Southpaws for wanting to create a war tax rather than choosing to spend money more prudently. Madame also gave me the job of tweeting throughout the day. It's been so much fun!
We're taking a break from the book tour for a few days and heading to Washington to see some of Madame's family for Thanksgiving.
To close, I have some amusing news to share. Apparently, Martha Stewpid is not a big fan of Madame:
Very boring? Even the craziest of the softy southpaws wouldn't call her boring! Dangerous, well, some of the softy southpaws and the RINOs see her as a political threat, so perhaps that is an accurate description in some cases. I'd like to see Madame show Martha Stewpid how to kill, field dress, prepare, and cook moose. I bet all of her friends in the Hamptons would love that. Martha would squirm, and that's a good thing.
Monday, November 23, 2009
Madame had dinner with Reverend Billy Graham last night. Billy Graham's son said that Billy Graham had this to say about Madame: "Daddy feels God was using her to wake America up." Amen, Reverend. I wonder what Minister Aw Shucksabee thinks about that. Poor guy!
Madame has been on fire all day today, starting with an inspiring Facebook post! She even brought out her inner Donald Trump: "We can take it back because we’re fired up, and we’re all about telling our government to listen to us, trust us, get back on our side… or politicians: you’re fired." Check out the Facebook link! You can see pictures, including one of Madame with the BOTUS!
We visited Ft. Bragg in North Carolina and Birmingham, Alabama today. I pick up a Southern accent easily, as today has shown. Can ya'll tell?
Madame also had a great interview with Greta today! What else would you expect? Greta is the anagram of great! You can see more of the interview tomorrow!
Also, now that my press secretary has finished the book, I can tell you that Madame mentioned me in the book. I don't want to reveal too much for those who haven't went rogue or who are still in the process of going rogue, but check out page 400! Madame discusses the work that we have done!
I'd better transition into hibernation mode. We are off to Florida tomorrow, and Madame is on Fox and Friends.
Talk to ya'll later!
Sunday, November 22, 2009
Also, just after my last post Friday night, Madame decided that we need to post another health care Facebook post prior to heading to Pennsylvania. The woman never tires!
We are now in North Carolina. At least I think we are; I don't have a GPS program installed on me so sometimes I get confused.
I haven't been as busy lately, so I get a lot of time to chill on the bus. The BOTUS has been busy on twitter though. You can keep up with her work here. I wish I could help out with the tweets, but the BOTUS isn't quite as bulky as I am, so she is a little more portable. It makes it easier for Madame to tweet from her. Perhaps I should lay of the cookies or at least disable them. Maybe then I would be less bulky. Oh well. Perhaps I will get to tweet soon for Madame. In the meantime, I'll just stick to my own twitter account.
Madame got to have dinner tonight with Billy Graham, and she gets to do a signing at Ft. Bragg tomorrow. I know she is quite excited about both of these. There are few things that are more important to Madame than her faith and the troops.
Friday, November 20, 2009
Before the book tour stops, Madame spoke with Dennis Miller on his radio show, then Madame was off to sign some books. It's amazing that she has signed her name thousands of times in the last few days, yet her right hand shows no signs of letting up when she decides to "type, type, send".
Madame also decided to write a special post regarding the stop in yesterday Indiana because not everyone who wanted to see Madame got the chance to do so. Wow. While the Great Opologizer is out apologizing for America, Madame is apologizing to Americans for things that are outside of her control. Madame is one classy lady.
The BOTUS wrapped up the day with a tweet! We are off to New York tomorrow!
I have to go rogue myself here and add a few other fun tidbits outside of the book tour!
First, today is VP Hairplugs' birthday, so happy birthday, Joe! I wonder if he has plans to visit Katie's Diner or Home Depot to celebrate.
Also, it seems the Great Opologizer is scare of Madame. Just look at what he's trying to do. Hmm, maybe he does see her as a threat!
Thursday, November 19, 2009
I was able to get some re-charging on the bus today, so I'm back and ready for whatever we have in store next. Big thanks to the BOTUS for filing in for me last night. We stopped in Fort Wayne and Noblesville, Indiana. The good ol' Hoosier state. Supposed funny man, David Letterboy, is from Indiana, but I don't think that thousands of people would wait in the cold to see him!
Madame also did an interview with Laura Ingraham, and part of her interview with Bill O'Reilly was shown tonight. Of course Madame was a patriot not a pinhead. I can't wait to see more of that interview tomorrow, including some more policy focused questions.
We are off to the Buckeye state tomorrow. More news soon!
Wednesday, November 18, 2009
The LOTUS is hibernating in the back of the bus as we have begun the book tour. She has been so tired by the past few months with all of the work that she and Madame have been doing. So, in honor of Madame's first book tour tweet, she is letting me write tonight's post! Who I am, you ask? Well, I am the BOTUS (Blackberry of the United States)! Madame put me to work a lot when she was tweeting as governor, but I've been a little bit bored lately. Now, I'm being put back to work! I'd like to think that Madame saved or created a job for me!
OK, so down to the good stuff! Madame had interviews today on Mark Levin's and Sean Hannity's radio shows. She was also appeared on Hannity's TV show tonight, which she taped yesterday. However, the really fun came in Michigan with the start of the book tour. My goodness were people excited. Some people went super rogue, and were even camping out as early as last night to see Madame! Madame has a great time meeting Michiganders and people from other states who traveled to see her:
Madame also released her schedule for the remainder of the book tour. We are going to be stopping by a lot of other places in the next month. Keep logged on to twitter, and myself or the LOTUS will give you the low down.
Now I also have to let you know about another interview that Madame did with National Review Online. In addition to radio and TV interviews, Madame has done some print interviews with various magazines. The LOTUS was indirectly discussed in this interview, and she was pretty excited. So, she wanted me to mention it:
On Facebook, which she has made such a powerful means of political communication: “Having a virtual office, and just working from my kitchen table, kind of forced me in that direction,” says Palin. “It’s become such an important tool in political discourse and discussion.”
Yep, the LOTUS is a tool! Wait, that came out wrong. The LOTUS is a good and effective tool for Madame to use to communicate her message. That's really what I meant.
Well, I'd better get going. I have some work to do. See you all in Indiana. We're pulling out of Michigan, but this time on our own terms!
Tuesday, November 17, 2009
There is so much news to discuss today! I'm so excited! First off, Madame's book hit stores today! It has already been a pre-sale success, so much so that they are already adding a second printing to the already 1.5 million first edition prints! I will discuss the book more later. My press secretary was just able to purchase today, so she hasn't had the chance to finish it yet. She'll be ticked at me if I post too much about the book before she's finished reading it.
Madame spoke with Babs Walters recently, and part of the interview included my television debut! I was so nervous! I heard that the camera adds ten pounds! However, after Mr. Tivo showed me the clip from this morning, I was excited! I looked hot! OK, I need to work on being humble, but I was pleased with my television debut. For those who had been dying to know, yes, I am a Mac!
Madame did a great job Good Morning America. If you want to see my TV debut and Madame's discussion with Babs, check out these links. In the interview, Madame rated the Great Opologizer's administration a 4 on a scale of 1 to 10. I have to say that Madame was rather charitable to him, in my opinion. She talked about a lot of other topics too, but I'll let you see those for yourself.
Madame also was on El Rushbo's show today, and she did awesome, of course. She talked about the economy, the Republican party, 2010 Congressional races, energy independence, national security, immigration, and of course, her book, and several other topics.
In other exciting news, Madame now has more than 1,000,000 supporters on Facebook! She posted a note thanking all of you rogues!
I will have tons more news in the coming days. We're hitting the road and starting the book tour in Michigan tomorrow. Woohoo! Road trip! Plus, more interviews with Madame will air as well!
Monday, November 16, 2009
Today, I hopped on to my friend Mr. Tivo to check out Madame on the Okra show! I don't put Mr. Tivo to work too often, but he'll be working a lot this week as Madame's book is being released tomorrow! Tons of interviews are scheduled. For kicks I sometimes have Mr. Tivo record some of the Great Opologizer's speeches, then I watch them in fast forward! When the Great Opologizer is reading from TOTUS at high speeds, it reminds me of a tennis match! It's fun! Give it a try sometime.
OK, so how did Madame do on the Okra show? Fabulous! She knocked it out of the park like Albert Pujols taking batting practice from President Obama! Madame talked about being tapped to be the VP pick, Bristol's pregnancy, the dumb clothes issue (Madame doesn't like to shop), and several other topics.
Madame, always the gracious one, spoke well of the Great Opologizer saying kids were off limits (even though the BOM-Barack Obama Media seemed to think that it was ok to talk about her kids...grr!). She was very gracious about Senator McAnonymous even though his staffers deserve a place in the quarantine folder of a virus scan program, if you ask me!
She put the sarcastic smack down on Katie Couric, or as Madame likes to call her, the Perky One! Love it! The Perky One seemed to think that Madame grew up in some distant land where people didn't read! I guess that makes sense if you're like many in BOM who thought Madame banned books! Madame put the "with all due respect" smack down on the Perky One! Okra aired some footage from Wasilla including some Halloween footage of the kids. Piper was a snowmachine racer, and Trig was a chicken. Adorable! Despite numerous Kanye moments from Okra (she kept interrupting!), the interview went exceedingly well! You can catch some unaired clips here. Madame closed the interview with a simple statement of how she faces life's challenges: God and Todd! Amen, Madame!

Today, Madame went all Hockey Mom on the AP and their supposed fact checking of her book with another Facebook post. She crossed checked them into the boards! She called the AP "opposition research" for their "fact" checking attempts. Hehe, nice cross check, Madame!
Madame is looking forward to meeting everyone on the book tour! I can't wait for the road trip with Madame and the BOTUSes (Blackberry of the United States)! We will be tweeting too! Hurray! Facebook is fun, but I love the 140 character challenge!
Friends, get your Tivos ready! Madame's going to be hitting the airwaves this week (Oprah tomorrow), and she'll also be hitting the road with the book tour. The book comes out Tuesday! She can't wait to meet you all as she travels the country. She has dedicated the book to you, "patriots"!

I know the picture is small, so let me tell you what the caption says: " How do you solve a problem like Sarah?". Then, in smaller print it says, "She's bad news for the GOP--and everybody else, too".
Let me tell you, that caption got my chips firing like crazy. Why do they think Madame is a problem? Like Madame and the Great Communicator say, " government is the problem". Madame's all about limited government, so, she isn't the problem! She is the solution. The smaller caption may have a little bit of truth to it though. She may be a probably to some in the GOP, if she seeks to become Madame 45. If Madame runs for President, Aw Schucksabee, Mittens Pomade, and the Minnesota Mullet may all see her as a bad news--for them. She would wipe the floor with them! This may sound vain, but I have to say that I'm a little disappointed in the cropping job of this picture, which was originally from Madame's Runners' World interview. Look at this photo from the Runner's World shoot, and look at the right side of the photo. They cropped me out of the shot for the cover! Oh well!
This isn't the first time that Newsweak has bashed Madame on their cover. During the campaign last year, the following cover was on Newsweak:
This cover's caption says, "She's One of the Folks (And that's the problem)". Way to go, Newsweak. You just bashed the "folks" and Madame at the same time. It's great that Madame is "one of the folks". That means she gets it. She knows what it's like to raise a family and balance a budget. She knows what it's like to work her way through college and to balance a family and a career. Why is that a problem, Newsweak? Not only is that caption a problem, the cover is a problem! You can't tell by the JPEG, but check this out:
Oh well, the five people who read Newsweak will continue to be misinformed.

Madame has called out the Great Opologizer twice in the past 24 hours! I'm so tired. Madame is working me to the motherboard lately, but I still love my job! Last night's post was fun and full of sarcasm. I love it when Madame is sarcastic! Yesterday, the Great Opologizer said that he was going to have a jobs' summit next month. Hmm, it's kinds of strange that he had a beer summit four months before he had a jobs' summit, but whatever. I'm just a rogue laptop, so what do I know? In his speech discussing the jobs' summit, he said that wanted to her about all possible options to help improve employment. Madame decided to take him up on his offer this via Facebook. Her title was very polite: "Thank you, Washington, for Requesting a Demonstrably Good Idea". Madame knows the perfect way to balance being nice with being sarcastic. This post was full of sarcasm. Madame gave major props to the Great Communicator. In doing so, she encouraged the Great Opologizer to "learn from history" (yes, sarcasm!) by looking at what Reagan did: cut capital gains taxes and cut business payroll taxes, even embrace the free market system. I think I may need to educate TOTUS about that concept so that he can pass the knowledge onto the Great Opologizer. Madame smacked down the President on the fact that he chastised small businesses for not hiring employees when, in fact, if the government would cut taxes.
The post today was a lot more somber and tough! While most of Madame's posts were "type,type, smacks", this one today was a "type, type, send him into next week". She called the Great Opologizer out on his allowance of 9/11 terrorists to be tried in the US. I'll let you read it yourselves. My silliness would get in the way of covering the seriousness of this topic. Madame is a true bold patriot!
Over the past 24 hours, Madame has taken the gloves off and has gone all mama grizzly on the AP (Anti Palin or as some people know it as, the Associated Press). The AP got a hold of Madame's book early, somehow, and began to spread misrepresentations.
So Madame and I went work on Facebook to say, "quit making things up". Madame's title for this post was, "Keep Your Powder Dry". Hmm, what was she talking about? Here's what the fun phrase means:
Trust in God, and keep your powder dry. That sounds like Madame alright. She trust the Lord, but she's ready. Media malpractice is going to be happening all over the place in the next few weeks.
Meaning:Be prepared and save your resources until they are needed.
Origin:The allusion is to gunpowder which soldiers had to keep dry in order to be ready to fight when required. This advice reputedly originated with Oliver Cromwell during his campaign in Ireland. In Ballads of Ireland (1856), Edward Hayes wrote:
"There is a well-authenticated anecdote of Cromwell. On a certain occasion, when his troops were about crossing a river to attack the enemy, he concluded an address, couched in the usual fanatic terms in use among them, with these words - 'put your trust in God; but mind to keep your powder dry'."
19th century citations of the phrase invariably give the full version - trust in God and keep your powder dry. This emphasizes that the keep your powder dry was seen only as an additional insurance. This is made clear in a piece from The Times Literary Supplement, 1908:
"In thus keeping his powder dry the bishop acted most wisely, though he himself ascribes the happy result entirely to observance of the other half of Cromwell's maxim."

Madame posted on Facebook this morning about the fact that Pukelosicare is DOA. No amount of Botox could put life into the face of this bill! Madame talked about the possibility of jail time if someone doesn't buy health care insurance! What is this, monopoly? If you draw a community (organizer) chest card and don't buy health insurance, go directly to jail! Do not pass go; do not collect $200!
Madame also talked about the effect that forcing insurance companies to cover everyone would actually cause massive problems and the government plan will go broke! Madame, you'd better tell the Great Opologizer that his decisions actually have long term consequences! I can tell TOTUS; that way the Great Opologizer can read about this! I try to e-mail TOTUS all of Madame's posts, but he's not sure the President can handle the truth!
Madame also gave some solutions of health care reform: market-driven, patient-centered, results-driven solutions including purchasing insurance across state lines and taking on government waste and fraud. That's right, drag the government waste into the recycling bin icon!

Madame put the smack down on Facebook about some lies being spread about her Right to Life speech. Madame used the example of the new dollar coin as this coin has "In God We Trust" on the side of the coin. Madame says that we often do that to God on the side. However, some crazies...cough...cough..POLITICO, TIME...said that Madame was trying to bash the Great Opologizer, which she wasn't. Check out what Madame really said. You don't spread lies about Madame, especially when it comes to her and the Big Man Upstairs!
I can't tell you too much yet, but we were up in Chicago: Madame, Piper, and Willow. Madame taped the Oprah show today. Madame said that she enjoyed it. Next week is going to be fun. Madame's going to be on TV, the book comes out, and the book tour starts. Woohoo!
When Madame and I first went to work on Facebook posts over the summer, I knew that a Madame would post a Veterans' Day note with pride and thankfulness. As she expressed in her post on the anniversary of the Fall of the Berlin wall earlier this week, freedom is something that she never takes for granted. Madame's words to our veterans are too good for me to summarize, so I will ctrl-x and ctrl-v them in their entirety:
In most of our cities and towns, you’ll see memorials to brave Americans – some in uniforms of wars from long ago – who defended freedom. If you look down at their inscriptions, you’ll see that they were dedicated by the mothers, fathers, wives and orphans of the veterans who gave all for their country. In distant lands across the globe, you’ll find silent fields of white markers with the names of Americans who never came home, but who showed their dedication to their country by where they died. Today we honor those who served and made the ultimate sacrifice, as well as those who served and came home forever changed by the battlefield.
Remember all the veterans who fought and sacrificed for our freedom today, and then please take the time to thank our brave men and women currently serving in uniform. We owe them so much.

I was so excited to help Madame post about the book tour schedule and our return to Twitter! That means that the BOTUSes and I get to work together again!I know that they are excited that they get to help Madame get out her message about the book tour.
I must say I'm excited about returning to Twitter. I enjoy the challenge of the 140 character limit! I miss our days previously tweeting.
We're starting out the book tour in Michigan. I think we're starting there because Madame really didn't want to pull out of campaigning there last year, but Senator McAnonymous didn't want to win the Wolverine state. Madame first "went rogue" by expressing her desire to actually try to win!
We are going to Indiana (Hoosiers!), Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York, Virginia, North Carolina, Alabama, and Florida. YAAAHAY!! Sorry, I had a Howard Dean moment. Did anyone else notice that some of those states are swing states? I wonder if that means anything. Those are just the place we are going to go before spending Thanksgiving in Washington state. How do you like them apples? We are going to head West after the holiday.
I can't wait for the trip, riding in the bus with the BOTUSes. Perhaps First Dude and the kids will join us for at least some of the trip. I can't wait to see the country. We are even going to visit some an army base! That will be fun. Madame loves the military. I can't wait to tweet about our adventures. Perhaps Madame will let me write a book about our adventures later.
Madame of course gave credit to Ronald Reagan, in addition to many others, for his role in bringing freedom to a land of tyranny. Madame wrote about how this event brought freedom, democracies, market economies, security, self-determination, and prosperity. As always, the final line of Madame's post was pure poetry, "[t]yranny is no match for the hope and resolve of those who work and fight for freedom." You betcha, Madame!
To celebrate this anniversary, I downloaded this video from Baywatch man:

Madame wasted no time calling out the government for their quest to take over the another part of the American economy. She followed this up by asking Pukelosi a flurry of challenging questions that could have buried the Speaker like an Alaskan snowstorm in January. She asked about the broken promise of transparency, the supposed need to rush the passage of the bill, and the fear that Congress has of the American people and their desire to read the bill first.
I had a few questions for Pukelosi, but Madame wouldn't let me post them on Facebook, so I'll post them here:
1) Will McAfee VirusScan and Norton Anti-virus be rationed under this bill, Ms. Speaker? I don't want to get a virus and become corrupted just because of the public option.
2) What will happen to you if the plan eventually leads to the non-coverage of Botox for Congresswomen?
3) How were you able to make a facial expression that looked like a smile following the passage of that vote?
4) How does it feel to be Joan Rivers's twin?
OK, OK, that last question wasn't health care related, but I've always been curious.
Madame really took the Speaker to task on the effects this bill will have on the overall economy, jobs, the free market, and personal liberties. She also wrote about the "death panels", abortion, and coverage of illegal aliens. Read it; it's good!
She even made a reference to the Preamble of the Constitution. Hmm, was that a shot at the softy southpaws like Pukelosi herself and Rachel Maddow, who either don't take the Constitution seriously or don't know that the Preamble exists?
Madame remains positive. We can't give up hope; we can't stop fighting. These Congressmen and women will either listen to the people now or in 2010 when they become one of the unemployed.

Madame didn't rest up a whole lot after last night's speech in Wisconsin before we went to work on Facebook calling out Speaker Pukelosi and her supposed need to rush health care legislation before everyone gets the chance to actually read the bill.
Madame had a whole bunch of questions for Pukelosi regarding rushing legislation, the cost of the bill, and taxes. You see, this bill will require a tax increase on small businesses. Hmm, increasing taxes when unemployment is up above 10%, not a smart idea. Madame used her signature sarcasm many times in this post. The "walking middle finger to the BosNYWash élite" was in action big time in this post. She called out the softy southpaws big time on the coverage of illegal immigrants and abortion in the bill. She also used the "death panel" phrase. Uh oh, that might just the Great Opologizer all wee-weed up.
Madame really raked Pukelosi over the coals for her broken promises regarding transparency and allowing people 3 days ro read the bill. Pssh, the Great Opolgizer's adminstration's idea of transparency is making sure that they use enough Windex on TOTUS that he is see through. She even called Pelosicare a train wreck. You betcha, Madame!
Madame closed with a P.S., a chart showing the bureaucracy of Pelosicare:
Kudos to the LOJEC (the Laptop of the Joint Economic Committee) for helping put that chart together. Such an assignment would have driven me crazy.
Now fellow patriots, as Madame said, " [s]tand up and make your voices heard before it’s too late. Call and email your representatives and tell them to vote “no” on Pelosi’s train wreck of a health care bill, or else we will vote “no” to sending them back to Washington when we go to the polls in less than 12 months."
Just say no to Pelosicare!
Friday, November 6, 2009
She told the thousands of attendees that they were "going rogue" for attending and standing up for pro-life issues. Darn right, Madame! You tell 'em. She even took some time speak about Pukelosi 's (oops, did I spell that right?) health care reform; Madame wants to be sure that everyone's voices are heard. She talked about the Great Opologizer, but didn't mention his name. This is a sneaky tactic that Madame uses in her Facebook posts and that she used in her RNC speech. She does this when she wants to be critical of her political opponents, but doesn't want to give them "free advertising".
I wonder if Madame will re-enact this with me before we leave Milwaukee:
