Madame 45 Is Admired!

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!

If You Are Reading This, You Might not Support Sarah!

As I was surfing today, I noticed a clip from Joyless Behar's show. She was talking about Madame and her book. Apparently, Joyless thinks that Madame's supporters don't read! Does Joyless think that Madame's supporters (all of us!) are using Going Rogue to prop up your coffee table or for use as a door stop?

Oh well. Who knows how many of Joyless's five viewers actually read?

Happy Birthday, Tripp!

Well the Holidays have passed. The BOTUS and I exchanged some new apps for Christmas. I've enjoyed the Tetris app that the BOTUS gave me.

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!

Merry Christmas

Madame and I posted a Facebook message today to wish all of you a Merry Christmas. I'll just post the whole message here:

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.

Death Panel Part Deux

It's "Death Panel" Facebook Time!

Madame started off the day with a book signing in our wonderful hometown of Wasilla, or Wasilly as the Great Opologizer calls it. I know Madame absolutely loved getting to see so many friends, but I was excited when the BOTUS posted that Madame and I were going to post a Facebook note about death panels. When Madame types about "death panels", she is so full of passion that she types very hard! It's worth the pain though.

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."

Top 10 Quotes from Madame 45, the LOTUS, and the BOTUS

Last week, Yale released their top 10 quotes of the year, and Madame 45's "death panel" quote made the list! In honor of this I'd like to compile my list of top 10 quotes that Madame and either me or the BOTUS have helped on in 2009. Some of these are informative; some are touching; some are sarcastic:

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?

Madame 45, BOTUS, and Twitter...oh my!

Earlier this weekend, Madame decided to share more of her thoughts about "climate change" using BOTUS. Boy, did she say a lot with the 140 character limit of Twitter:
Copenhgen=arrogance of man2think we can change nature's ways.MUST b good stewards of God's earth,but arrogant&naive2say man overpwers nature

How 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!

$1,000 for Each of the 57 States

We're back in Alaska after our trip to Hawaii. The BOTUS shared the news of our next book signing back at home in Wasilla on Tuesday.

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.

A non-Paparazzi JPEG

We're here in Hawaii, and the LSM and TMZ are wanting to focus on the visor that Madame wore on the beach today. Darn paparazzi. Sigh. I'm just a bit disappointed Madame took the BOTUS to the beach and not me. Oh well.

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.

Madame 45 Shoots Down an Austrian RINO

Today in Copenhagen, Governor Schwarzenegger, the Austrian RINO, tried to take a whack at Madame on the issue of climate change. Apparently the Austrian RINO drank some of the Algore kool-aid and believes that climate change is completely attributable to humans.

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.

- Sarah Palin
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.

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!

Climate Change Poetry

Madame signing books at Elmendorf Air Force Base
(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.

The Tonight Show with Madame 45!

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!

Farewell for Now, Lower 48!

Today was the last part of the book tour in the Lower 48. We made two stops in Idaho, including her town of birth! How do you like those potatoes? My press secretary was a bit disappointed that she didn't get to meet Madame while on the book tour. Madame, she wants you to know that people in the Great Opologizer's home state would love to meet you too! But, I digress.

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!

Does the Climate Change or Does it Go Rogue?

Madame is starting to wind down the book tour. We went to Utah first, which is supposedly Mittens Pomade's territory. If Madame runs in 2012 (please do!), we'll see about that! Madame went to Reno, Nevada for a book signing there too! I wonder what Dirty Harry thinks about this.

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."

Rocky Mountain High!

Madame 45 had book tour stops in Montana and Colorado. I think that she is bringing Alaskan weather with her everywhere she goes. People in Montana waited outside in the cold in subzero temperature. Tonight, we were in Colorado. With all of the snow and the mountains, I would have thought I was back at home in Alaska! Madame met hundreds and hundreds of fellow rogues today. It was great. Madame met another cool conservative lady, Michelle Malkin! Thankfully, there were no crazies who threw food at Madame today!

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.

A Rogue Tomato in Minnesota

We were in the Minnesota Mullet's home state for a book signing. Madame has had some shining moments here in the land of a thousand lakes. Remember this? While Madame was signing books books at the Mall of America, I spent the day riding the indoor roller coaster at the mall. During the signing, some looney liberal tossed a tomato at Madame, but he missed and hit a cop. Just like the Great Opologizer, this looney didn't have a very good arm.

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!

Going Rogue in the Heartland

Madame gave awesome and funny speech in D.C. last night. What's the difference between a hockey mom and David Letterboy? Clean humor and funny joke delivery. Today, Madame started her day by going to Walter Reed Medical Center to visit injured soldiers.

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.

Madame Meets Virginia!

Madame (and her awesome hat) sits with First Dude
at the book signing in Virginia

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".

A Lonestar LOTUS

Madame 45 had two book signings today in Texas. I like Texas. I have some friends, who are calculators, who were invented down here. They are good guys.

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!

Going Rogue in the MidSouth

Madame signing books in Oklahoma

We've had a busy past two days! Yesterday, we were in the Show Me state. Madame visited Springfield, MO for a book signing. Sadly, Madame didn't let me go to the Bass Pro Shop while she was signing books. I wanted to see if they had any waterproof gear for LOTUSes. Maybe then I could go fishing with the family.

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!

A Platinum Rogue in the Southwest

We were back on book tour today with stops in Arizona and New Mexico. I wanted Madame to put me on a corner with my itunes blaring so that I could sing along to "Take It Easy" by the Eagles as I would be standing on a corner in Winslow, Arizona. Madame told me that we would be in Tempe, Arizona. We also went to Roswell, New Mexico tonight! While Madame was signing, she gave me the role of UFO czar while I was hanging out on the bus. I didn't see anything though.

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!
