A JPEG is Worth A Thousand Words Part III

Since Madame is not doing any book signing today, I thought I would post another installment of A JPEG is worth a thousand words.

Going Extra Rogue

Madame was back on the book tour today, stopping in the Tri-City area of Washington. Madame even went a little bit extra rogue today by stopping outside to greet supporters waiting in line outside prior to going inside to sign books.

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!

Going Rogue is a Bestseller!

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!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving to all! I hope you all are enjoying time with your family and friends and have been able to stuff yourself with all the goodies: turkey, cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes, etc. I'm so jealous! I don't have much choice in what I consume. It's all AC adapter or battery powered energy all of the time for me. No tasty caloric intake!

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!

Typing on Sunshine...ohh ohh..

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.

Sweet Homepage Alabama!

Madame and Trig meet Billy Graham

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!

A Rogue Weekend

Madame has been quite the busy bee this weekend. We have made book tour stops in Pennsylvania, New York, and Virginia this weekend. Madame was even nice enough to stop by and say "hello" to the people who had been waiting overnight in Virginia to see her! Madame may not hold an elected office right now, but she certainly still sees herself as a public servant. Today in Virginia, Madame introduced me to Tito the Builder. It was a lot of fun.

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.

No ACORNs just Buckeyes!

We went to Ohio today with stops in Cincinnati and Colombus. It's been an exhilarating, but busy last few days. Not long after I wrote last night's post, Madame decided it was time for another health care post. Geez, does this woman ever go into hibernation mode?

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!

The Hoosier State

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!

Guest Post from the BOTUS!

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!

1,000,000 Rogues!

My Television Debut!

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!

Madame on the Okra Show

Okra has the death grip on Madame and Willow!

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!

The Hockey Mom Cross Checks the Fact Checkers

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"!

There You Go Again, Newsweak!

After helping my friend Mr. Tivo get ready to record all of Madame's interviews and appearances next week, I decided to do some surfing around the web. I noticed that Madame is going to be on the cover of Newsweak soon! Did I use the proper homonym there? Oh well. Anyways, here is their cover:

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's Hits the Great Opologizer on the Economy and 9/11

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!

Quit Making Things Up and Keep Your Powder Dry!

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:

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."

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.

It's Health Care Reform Not Monopoly!

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!

In God We Trust, You Betcha!

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!

Madame Recognizes Our Veterans

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.

- Sarah Palin

On the Road again with Madame and the BOTUSes!

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.

Facebook Freedom from Madame and Hasselhoff!

As today was the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, Madame wanted to show her support for this act giving freedom to millions and representing the eventual fall of an Evil Empire, so she posted on Facebook. I'm glad that she posted it. I was made long after the wall came down, and the only kind of wall I'm familiar with is a firewall.

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:

Will Botox Be Covered under Pukelosicare?

The Pukelosi health care "reform" bill passed through the House last night. Once I saw that news stream across the web, I knew that a Facebook post was coming from Madame.

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.

Pukelosi: Madame's Latest Facebook Victim

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!

Going Rogue in the Badger State

Madame speaking in Waukesha, WI last fall

Madame spoke at a Pro-life event in Milwaukee,Wisconsin tonight. We'd been to the Milwaukee suburb of Waukesha last fall as pictured above. As there were no laptops allowed, I had to wait in the car. Thankfully, Madame made sure that my battery was fully charged. I put on the cheesehead hat that Madame was kind enough to buy for me and decided to watch this video, since I was in the Badger state.

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:

Madame Speaks on the Ft. Hood Tragedy

Madame posted the following note on Facebook tonight:

Todd and I would like to offer our condolences to the families of the victims of the tragic shooting today at Ft. Hood. Our thoughts and prayers will be with them.

- Sarah Palin

I cannot add anything more to what Madame has written, except to say, I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that she, the Commandress-in-Chief, means it.

Madame's Facebook Hat Trick

Madame 45, the Hockey Mom, produced a veritable Facebook hat trick yesterday. I wrote about the first two Facebook "goals" that Madame scored yesterday. After all of the election results came in yesterday, Madame produced her final masterpiece of a post.

She entitled the post, "A Victory for Common Sense and Fiscal Sanity". Surely, Madame, you aren't insinuating that the softy southpaws don't use common sense and are fiscally insane?

She first congratulated the New Jersey and Virginia Republicans who won the governorships in their states. She also gave a shout out to the Lieutenant Governor-elect of New Jersey, Kim Guadagno, who was the first woman to hold that office! Madame said that these politicians represented "positive change". Did you hear that, Great Opologizer? Positive change--not the hopeless negative change you're dishing out!

Madame was optimistic, as always, even though Doug Hoffman lost the election, or as Madame postponed until next year. Always the optimist! She reminded us about the fact that the elections are about "fiscal restraint, smaller government, and policies that encourage jobs". That's right, VP Hair Plugs. It's about that 3 letter words J-O-B-S!

Madame closed with a quote from the Great Communicator:
“The cause goes on. Don't get cynical because look at yourselves and what you were willing to do, and recognize that there are millions and millions of Americans out there that want what you want, that want it to be that way, that want it to be a shining city on a hill.”

Madame and the Great Communicator, I tip my screen to you both!

Going Rogue National Tour!

We're going on a book tour! I'm so excited! I love to travel! Madame was so happy to announce her book tour on Facebook today. She was so happy that she used 4 exclamation points! We're going to be announcing our stops in the next few days, but they aren't going to be in your typical book tour venues. As you well know, Madame is not your typical politician. I wonder where we will be going. Oh, look at me, I'm such a groupie. Hmm, since this is a tour, I wonder if I should start a website to sell tour merchandise. Perhaps I could sell " I went rogue, and all I got was this bestselling book" t-shirts! I think Madame would support me in this. She is all about supporting small businesses!

Not only are we going on book tour, we are also going to be doing some interviews! By now you've probably already heard that Madame is going on Oprah! Talk about a "Favorite Things" edition of the show. I hope Oprah's on her best behavior; she supported the Great Opologizer in the election last year. Madame is also hoping to speak with Bill O’Reilly, Barbara Walters, Sean Hannity, Greta Van Susteren, Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, Mark Levin, Laura Ingraham, Dennis Miller, and Tammy Bruce.

I hope this means that Bill O'Reilly will stop pleading for Madame to be on his show. It's kind of pathetic, you Pinhead! Oh, I'm just kidding, Bill! I wonder if he will make me the subject of his Talking Points Memo on that edition of the show! Madame has already talked to some of the Fox hosts and radio show hosts before, but I'm sure she is still excited to talk to them this time. I must give major dittos to Madame for being such a Great American! I think that Tammy Bruce will be especially excited to talk to Madame. Tammy loves it when Madame Type, Type, Sends!

She is also going to talk to her Alaskan friends, Eddie Burke and Bob and Mark.

Madame is so excited for the book tour and to meet many Americans! I know I am! I'd better work on writing my signature!

Vote, Baby, Vote!

Madame and I have had a busy day! I will have to tell you about the super exciting news in a bit, but for now I'll let you know about our first post on Facebook today! Madame is all about suffrage and reminding people about their rights. She reminded people to vote in Virginia, New Jersey, and New York. Not only that, Madame gave a shout out to some women who shattered some glass ceilings of their own: Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony. Madame is obviously a big fan of the 19th amendment! She said in her post, "[w]hen we consider the sacrifices made to give us this right, there is simply no excuse not to vote." Darn right, Madame!

Madame also focused on common sense. You see, with Madame, it's about common sense, not conventional wisdom. I have to say the last line of Madame's post lately have been brilliant. Today was no different: "Vote today in honor of our past and with hope for our future."

Now, does anyone want to lobby for the 28th Amendment so that LOTUSes can vote? I'd really appreciate it. Sadly though, no matter whether or not I get the chance to vote, I'll never get to run for President. I wasn't made here!

A Village in Delaware Is Missing Its Idiot

Vice President Hair Plugs opened his mouth today and inserted his foot yet again today while campaigning for Bill Owens, the Democratic nominee for the Congressional seat in the 23rd District.

The way that Hair Plugs was talking you would have thought it was 2008 rather than 2009, but he seems to get his times mixed up. He took a shot a Madame on energy, especially "drill, baby, drill". He condescendingly stated that energy policy was more "complicated" than that. Yes, maybe for you, Mr.VP, you probably think "drill" is a 6 letter word. You don't lie about Madame's stance on energy and expect to get away with it! Madame went straight to Facebook, and we went to work. She reminded him that she believes in an all-of-the-above approach. I guess Hair Plugs wasn't paying attention to Madame when she beat him in the debate last year. Madame even pointed out that Hair Plugs voted against an Alaskan pipeline bill back in 1973, when Madame was just 9. Say it ain't so, Joe! Madame is used to taking on Joe the Gaffer!

Just like yesterday, Madame closed with some sarcasm (Yes!): "There’s one way to tell Vice President Biden that we’re tired of folks in Washington distorting our message and hampering our nation’s progress: Hoffman, Baby, Hoffman! "

Gotta love when Madame couples sarcasm with support for a strong conservative candidate!

Madame Goes Joe Wilson on Daggett

Photo from Sarah Palin 2012
Madame's latest Facebook post was short, sarcastic, and to the point! Just the way I like it! She pulled a Web 2.0 Joe Wilson on Chris Daggett, the independent candidate for Governor in New Jersey. He said that Madame told him to drop out of the race on MSNBC today. She never even contacted him or his campaign!

She said that Daggett was "playing loose with the facts". That crossed the line. Madame doesn't like lies and false accusations! She has told the media to "quit making things up"and has called attacks by anklebiters, "bullcrap". She doesn't like to mince words! After all, she is both a pit bull and a barracuda! She's fierce!

The final line was my favorite, the simplicity of sarcastic ellipses, "I’ve never even suggested he should drop out of the race. But, come to think of it…"

Oh, Madame, you slay me!
