Farewell from LOTUS

This is bittersweet for me to say, but this is farewell. My support for Governor Palin and what she stands for is as fervent as ever, but I've decided to focus my blogging on less satirical stuff, and focus more on the 2010 elections, conservatism, and Governor Palin (but in a less satirical, goofy way). I've really enjoyed doing this blog, and I greatly appreciate all of you for reading and commenting. Thank you so much!


On to November! Let's take back the House and the Senate, and later the Presidency!

From my laptop to yours, God bless!

The Roar of the Mama Grizzlies!

Well, my friends,it's been a while. Madame has been fishing, and I'm not allowed on the boat. I have as much of an aversion to fish guts as Angria Mitchell. However, we did decide to spice things up with a new endorsement last night: another mama grizzly from Tennessee! We even included a JPEG. How do ya'll like that?

However, the real fun came in a youtube link that we got to post. Yes, we've posted these before on occasion, but not like this! A flash forward to 2012!? I certainly hope so! Mama grizzlies roar!

Sarah's Categorized Night Sticks!

Wow! The LSM, as usual, was causing trouble at one of Madame's speeches, so she thought she'd be straight with them. Especially after she was accused of kicking them out. What? Willow was with her! She could, but wouldn't have done anything to the "media". Madame decided to share part of her speech with them. I have no idea how she fit this all on her palm, but oh well. This post is full of nightsticks! Categorized nightsticks! I loved it because I got to put some headings in bold and use cap locks! Awesome. I think this may have been a dileniation of the Palin Doctrine. Look at all the individual nightsticks: defense spending, the US Navy, Obama's Foreign Policy Inheritance, the War on Terror, Afghanistan, Alienating Our Allies, Coddling Adversaries, An "Enemy Centric" Foreign Policy (ouch!), and A Different View of America. Yikes! She smack the Great Opologizer hard with multiple types of night sticks. For reminiscence's sake, let's take a look at the night stick:

55% of the SCOTUS understands the 2nd Amendment!

Sorry, I'm a bit behind. It's Bush's fault, just like the oil spill. Anyways, yesterday the Supreme Court handed down a ruling that said the Constitution was right on guns! The decision was 5-4, which means that only 55% of the SCOTUS understands the Constitution on this issue. Sigh. Madame was a bit more positive when she posted her thoughts on this decision on Facebook calling it a victory for the second amendment.

I called into my friend, TOTUS, to get the reaction of the White House. He said that the Great Opologizer was bummed, but FLOTUS was excited, as the ruling overturns the gun ban in Chicago. It's summer; FLOTUS wants the right to bare arms when she goes back home to Chicago:

Some Good Friends Stop for a Visit!

Lots of stuff going on right now and a few visitors! Thomas van Fine ;) and Meg "the Enforcer" Stapleton stopped by to call out the ankle biters! Madame's still undefeated; she settled one of the pieces of silliness thrown at her.

We also highlighted a few stops that we'll be making in the coming days! Woohoo! We made another endorsement too for Kansas Senator. There's no place like home!

Sarah Call Out Chief of Staff Dead Fish

I had the privilege of helping Madame endorse another candidate in South Carolina yesterday. However, I must say that BOTUS has been the one who has been busy today! First, there was a message regarding the Day of Prayer for the Gulf spill. Then, there was a nice, sweet Father's Day message. But the real kicker is the nightstick of a tweet Madame dealt to Chief of Staff Dead Fish. Yikes! Also, as you can see, if you hop on over to the Twitter page, we've spruced it up a bit by removing the book tour stuff. We'll see what pretty new background we get in the future. Who knows? But I hope one day that the number 2012 will be involved.

Sarah Shows Her Bear Bias! ;)

We endorsed three mama grizzlies today! The Softy Southpaws probably thinks that Madame is a sexist species-ist. She likes mama grizzlies, but she hates polar bears. Madame wants to turn Congress and the state houses into zoos full of grizzlies! She endorsed Congressional candidates in the Land of Fruits and Nuts and yet another in apple country, plus a gubernatorial candidate in Oklahoma.

Two Iron Ladies to Meet?!

Cheerio, friends! So there is a possibility that we may be going to England to meet the Iron Lady herself. This news has been floating around the internet, but Madame wanted to clarify the news a bit. Can you imagine these two Iron Ladies chatting it up!? Wow. Of course I'll have to get a compatible AC adapter for the trip, but the purchase will be worth it!

BOTUS also made sure that we wished everyone a happy flag day! She even got a new skin for the occasion.

Does Chavez "Drill, Baby, Drill"?

Well, we've been cruising in a RV for the past few days on our way back to Alaska. That doesn't mean we haven't been busy though! We endorsed a guy running for Congress from Washington state. He's a farmer too! How do you like them apples?

We also called out the Great Opologizer on his associations with foreign oil producers! Madame even added a little humor and alliteration to the title of the note: Fuel America with Terrorist-Tarred Oil Instead of Drilling Our Own, Baby? Not as catchy and safe as drill, baby, drill, huh? We even threw in some sarcastic, folksiness:
Shoot, I must have lived such a doggoned sheltered life as a normal, independent American up there in the Last Frontier, schooled with only public education and a lowly state university degree, because obviously I haven’t learned enough to dismiss common sense (a prerequisite for power in Washington these days). Help me out, friends! Help someone like me – and the majority of Americans – understand why we would ever kowtow and bow to foreign regimes that hate us, instead of doing all we can to starve the beast of terrorism in our plight for security, prosperity, and peace.
Doggoned? Our President wouldn't understand such folksy euphemisms? Mr. Pottymouth likes to talk about kicking @$$ and plugging the D#$% hole. Geez! He needs to get his mouth washed out with soap or TOTUS needs a good windex cleaning or something. Madame wrote about how some GOPers are calling out the President on seeking oil from Venezuela, which has ties to terrorism. Hmm....It's really too bad the President seems to see palm-to-palm with Chavez.

A Week in the Life of LOTUS

I may have to fire my "press secretary"!! She was without internet for a week and did not give fair warning! I haven't been able to blog for over a week! Geez! So, here's the lowdown on Madame's work over the past week.


She endorsed another Mama grizzly in Arkansas! She endorsed a gubernatorial candidate in Iowa. Hmm, Iowa is an early 2012 primary state.

She wished Coach Wooden a speedy recovery, although he later would pass. It was a nice post from the Point Guard-in-chief!

Ever the commandress-in-chief, she also remembered D-day.

She also took the President down a peg on BP! Not only that, she called out the media on their poor job of covering the oil spill. The Great Opologizer may be great at apologizing, but he's definitely not great at executive action.

Oh, and BOTUS kicked it into high gear over the past week. Check it out! She even did some replies!

Sarah Calls Out Extreme Weenies and Greenies

Today was another one -two punch on the Facebook front. After a few posts calling out the meaning, Joe McCreep, we took today to call out extreme weenies and greenies. Madame endorsed a senate candidate here in Alaska, Joe Miller. This may send some people up in arms, as Murkowski is the incumbent. The thing is, she is a little bit of a RINO weenie. She's pro-choice, pro-amnesty, and believes in global warming. Madame would rather endorse a military, non-weenie.

Our second post
was to call out the extreme greenies, as BOTUS called them in a tweet yesterday. In our Facebook post, we had to change the language a bit and call them extreme enviros. These people don't realize that, just because there was an oil spill way off the coast, you don't prevent drilling closer to shore or in ANWR. In fact, the restrictions placed on drilling by these extreme greenies have hurt the environment as Madame says, " radical environmentalists: you are damaging the planet with your efforts to lock up safer drilling areas." What a nightstick the Birkenstock wearers!

Two Slaps at the Media

Today was quite the busy today. We posted two notes this morning. One post was in support of Israel in the Flotilla fighting over the weekend.We went a little bit rogue and shared it with the Weekly Standard first. Hey, VP Hair Plugs, just so you know, you can't get a Flotilla at a Mexican restaurant. So while the LSM wants to hide parts of the story, Madame simply wants to get the truth out their about the true intentions of some of these people.

It's sort of ironic that the same morning Madame supports Israel, our new neighbor, Joe McCreep, spews some nonsense to Matt Lousy about Madame acting like a Nazi. Of course, Madame had to respond, especially since NBC did not include hers and First Dude's responses as they had promised. The LSM was particularly lame today.

Memorial Day, to Remember Past, Present, and Future Sacrifice!



For posts like this, I'll let Madame speak for herself:

“Let no neglect, no ravages of time, testify to the present or to the coming generations that we have forgotten as a people the cost of a free and undivided republic.”
- General Orders No.11, Grand Army of the Republic Headquarters, May 5, 1868

This weekend, as we enjoy time with family and friends, we should stop and remember the meaning of this national holiday. Memorial Day is a uniquely American holiday that finds its origins in the aftermath of our Civil War, when our country searched for a proper way to commemorate the many who had fallen in the long struggle to end slavery and unify our nation.

Today, we remember all of those throughout our history and to this very day who gave their lives serving our country in uniform. Our prayers are especially with the surviving family members for whom everyday is memorial day, as they live on remembering their loved ones who died selflessly to protect the freedoms we hold dear.

And on Memorial Day, let us also remember all veterans, past and present, because everyone who wears the uniform and swears the oath is willing to make that ultimate sacrifice for America. So, in honoring them let’s keep in mind this version of a popular poem as we show respect for those willing to sacrifice all for our exceptional country:

“It is the veteran, not the preacher, who has given us freedom of religion.

It is the veteran, not the reporter, who has given us freedom of the press.

It is the veteran, not the poet, who has given us freedom of speech.

It is the veteran, not the campus organizer, who has given us freedom to assemble.

It is the veteran, not the lawyer, who has given us the right to a fair trial.

It is the veteran, not the politician, who has given us the right to vote.

It is the veteran, who salutes the flag, who serves under the flag, and whose coffin will be draped by the flag.”


- Sarah Palin

(Enjoy this version of the poem recited by Fred Thompson.)

Sarah Schools Obama on the D#*! Hole!

You knew that after Obama's second annual press conference that Madame would have something to say, especially after he dissed drilling. The President got a little bit pottymouth-ish, so Madame had to clean up the title of her newest post a bit--just in case Piper read it! I haven't gotten to use those symbols much in our work.

I think she wishes she was at the press conference today, as we started today's post with a series of questions to the president. She also typed out some pieces of her record and some solutions. Her solutions--stop blaming Bush and start drilling here. I love it when she does that!

I will say that my favorite part were these nightsticks:

(I risk the President taking my comments personally, but they’re not intended to be personal; my comments reflect what many others feel, and we just want to help him tackle this enormous spill problem.)

....

We hope you’re learning. Please learn that we must have domestic energy development, you must stop looking backward and blaming Bush, and we must all work together to “plug the d#*! hole.”

Poor, poor, Mr. President! I hope TOTUS is around to console him. Madame just took him to school! We hope he's learning.

Sarah: Chair of the "Hell No" wing of the GOP

In spite of the McCreeper living next door, we still had the chance to do some political posting. This time, we did some more GOP promoting. Even though the GOP establishment doesn't often even give Madame the time of day, she is more than willing to promote their initiatives, if they are good! Madame tends to tell it like it is more so than other GOPers. It just goes to show you that while Michael Steele may be the chair of the "please, don't" wing of the GOP, Madame is the chair of the "hell no" wing of the Republican party. My apologies for my potty text.

Sarah, Build the Danged Fence..Around Your House!

I thought we were done posting for today, and I would get to relax in Wasilla. But, we just found out we have a neighbor--a crazy, creepy journalist neighbor. Madame had to call him out. She was nice and charitable--even offering to make him some blueberry pie. First Dude deserves the medal for courageous restraint after this news! We even posted a JPEG of the creep! Geez! Perhaps this is a sign that we need to move to the White House....now!! At the very least, I implore Madame to build the danged fence...around the house!

Smackdown of a Blogger and Gibbsy!

We had a double nightstick posting day today! First, Madame posted about her continued support for Nikki Haley whom she endorsed for SC. Some crazy blogger is claiming an affair with Nikki. Madame knows all about rumors from bloggers. She even mentioned of the false ones the crazies brought out about her--divorce, moves to the Hamptons or Montana. I'm kind of disappointed that she didn't mention the rumor that she left Todd for Bigfoot!

Then, as stupidity would have it, Gibbsy made a comment yesterday that Madame needed to learn about the oil industry when she criticized the Great Opologizer's ties to British Petroleum on FoxNews Sunday. We even tweeted about it! Geez! That's like someone saying Albert Pujols needs to learn how to hit or Michael Jordan needs to learn how to dunk. So, Madame went to work calling out the administration on their poor response to the oil spill and how Alaskans would handle the spill. Madame would know!

How Do You Like Them Apples?

Did you all miss me? Madame's let me catch a little bit of a breather lately after our whirlwind of events lately. Whew. Madame just spoke in the Mile High City, and let's just say that Madame brought the house down! The skeptics bemoan that she only speaks in platitudes, but this speech was quite wonkish!! Eat your heart out, Mittens Pomade!

We have done some endorsing though lately. Madame endorsed a Senatorial candidate in Washington state. How do you like them apples? BOTUS also gave a shout out tonight to Charles Djou,a Hawaiian GOPer who won an election in Obama's home district. Aloha, Congressman!

Get Your Apology Tour T-shirts!



When I began to call Obama the Great Opologizer, I didn't think he would take it to heart as much as he did! One of his officials apologized to China for the Arizona immigration law--the extremely short bill that we linked in our Facebook post today! This is the bill that Janet Incompetano and co haven't read! China has done horrible human rights abuses, and our President's peeps are apologizing to China! Geez! This bill is just like the federal law--the law the Great Opologizer is apologizing for, not enforcing!

I will say that Madame's post title inspired me for my t-shirt business (don't tell her I've started making and selling "Palin 2012" shirts). She titled this post: "America Apology Tour". The Great Opologizer apologizes so much, I decided he needs tour t-shirts, so I designed some:

They are on sale for $19.95 plus shipping and handling! Get them before they sell out!

Sarah and the Border Ladies

We've been in the desert Southwest the past few days. Madame appeared with her future Homeland Security Secretary, Jan Brewer on a project to secure the border!


Watch CBS News Videos Online

Madame and I also put this same message on Facebook today. She told the Great Opologizer to do his job and read the Arizona bill! It's only 10 pages! It could very quickly be uploaded to TOTUS!

We also made a trip to New Mexico as Madame endorsed Susana Martinez for New Mexico governor! This is just Madame's way of helping to secure the borders--supporting governors who will do the job the president won't do! We posted a note on this today too!

Whew! Madame has been everywhere this weekend! She's making me want to go into hibernation mode, but she has more energy than me!

Saturday, May 15, 2010

If Research Is Your Friend, the Media Must Be Lonely.

As can be predicted, Madame speaks about pro-life candidates and 2nd amendment rights yesterday, and the media gets wee-weed up and begins to misrepresent things...again. So, we had to call them out again. The media misrepresented Madame's words about the Obama administration's views of gun control...and she wasn't talking about FLOTUS's arms! Also, the media was wrong on Obamacare's funding of abortion and the Catholic church's supposed approval of Obamacare.

BOTUS weighed in on this issue too, and Madame even used an emoticon on this one! :)

Ever the supporter of the military, Madame tweeted a happy Armed Services day to those who are serving or have served.

Guns, Babies, and an Endorsement, All in a Day's Work!

OK, so I may have the capability of being either battery or AC powered, but I have nowhere near the energy that Madame does! She gave three speeches today and an interview to Greta! One of the speeches was to a pro-life women's group and another was to the NRA. The softy southpaws' heads must have been exploding everywhere. I have copied and pasted the embedded code for her speeches, and that was enough to make me tired.

Susan B. Anthony event:





National Rifle Association event:




Nikki Haley rally:




We also posted a note about the endorsement of Nikki Haley too. You know, as if Madame, didn't have enough going on that day.

Sarah Says to B-ballers "Go Rogue in Arizona"!

When I was out surfing the web, and I saw the story about the Chicago suburb girls' basketball team not allowed to play in a tournament in Arizona because of their softy southpaw school superintendent bureaucrat, I knew those would be "fightin' words" to Madame.,just as she said in her speech in the Windy City last night. What?! The school let students go to China where there are horrible human rights violations, but they can't go to Arizona?!? Last night, BOTUS sent out the warning tweets, and I knew it was only just a matter of time before Madame and I would go to work on a Facebook post.

Not only did Madame support the team, she also slammed the Great Opologizer's lack of border security:
These boycotts of Arizona will not help the state or lead to positive change. Economic and political boycotts of our nation’s 48th state will hurt all Arizonans – including all members of the Hispanic community. If people really want to help, they should tell President Obama to do his job: secure the border. If he were to do his job, the good people of Arizona, who have been overwhelmed by violence on their border, would not feel compelled to do it for him.
Ouch, that had to leave a mark, but I'm sure Madame's future Homeland Security secretary, Jan Brewer, appreciated it. We also did something new. We linked to a Facebook group to support the girls!

Today, just before we posted this note, Madame and BOTUS made a call into Megyn Kelly's show. I've embedded their stellar work here:

Sarah's Book O' "F" Bombs!

Now that the LSM has gotten word of it, I can now tell you about Madame's newest book: America by Heart: Reflections on Family, Faith and Flag that will be released in November! Yep, Madame drops the "F" bomb three times in the title, not the "F' bomb of the VP Hair Plugs variety, but family, faith, and flag?! For the softy southpaws, those are almost curse words! Madame will be compiling writings from the Founders, speeches, sermons, songs, etc. Good stuff! Madame doesn't know it, but I'm writing a special inscription for Katie "the Perky One" Couric:
Dear Perky One,

Remember when you were condescending and dumb and asked me what did I read, and I answered, "all of them"? Read this book. This is what I meant!

Best regards,
Sarah



Do you think Madame will go for that?

MSM Headline: Sarah Demands A Raise for Her Son!

Ignore the title of this post, but who knows, that may be the way that the media wants to spin our latest linkage. BOTUS and I tagged teamed it again. BOTUS tossed out the warning tweet about Obama wanting to reduce the raise that Congress proposed for the military. The Great Opologizer will spending billions and billions on a stimulus package that doesn't work, but he won't give our soldiers a decent, well deserved raise. So, Madame and I tossed up this link on Facebook.

It's going to be a busy week this week, including a trip back to Obama's home city and a day where she speaks at a pro-life and a NRA event. Liberal heads will explode!

Sarah Honors a Mentor

BOTUS tweeted a message this morning to honor one of Madame's mentors, who passed away: Governor Hickel. Although Hickel later withdrew his support during Madame's governorship, he was one of her first mentors. Check out this clip at about the 40 second mark to see the two governors interact:

Happy Mothers' Day!

One of the LSM outlets has a great piece about Madame for Mother's Day. Shocker! The article talked about Madame's multi-tasking ability! She can check e-mails on BOTUS all while making dinner for the kids and doing other things! The piece also discussed Madame's and First Dude's rules for letting the kids use me to go surfing. Madame doesn't allow them to read the blogs because there are a lot of crazies out there!

One of my press secretary's friends e-mailed her a jpeg that I want to give to Madame for Mother's Day. There's even a lotus flower and a Bible verse! The softy southpaws will go nuts! You guys get to see a sneak peek:

Just Say "No" to Ma'am!

Well, it's been a little while since Madame and I worked on an endorsement piece, but we did one today endorsing Carly Fiorina for the Senate seat in the Land of Fruits and Nuts! Carly's story is much like Madame's. Her dad was a school teacher, and she's broken a few glass ceilings. Some people got a little wee-wee up over this endorsement, so Madame had to go back and add some stuff to the post to further explain. Hey, it's OK, folks. You don't have to agree with every decision Madame makes. However, Carly has the best chance of the Republicans to beat Ma'am Boxer, and she's not a big RINO like one of her opponents! I'm concerned though about the title Madame used for this piece: "Let's shake it up in California". If there's an earthquake, Madame may get blamed!

BOTUS has been a bit busy the past few days. She's tweeted about the oil spill, the National Day of Prayer, the flooding in Tennessee. What a busy past few days!

Double Post Friday!

We've been traveling around all over the country these past few days, but that doesn't mean that we aren't doing some work. Yesterday was a double post Friday! The verdict came down on the Popcorn jerk trial, and he was found guilty on two accounts. One account may be re-tried. We'll see. Madame posted a very gracious note regarding the verdict. This also included a comparison to the Watergate scandal in how politicians (or college students) can't do illegal things to try to alter an election! Nixon was a Republican; she's not going to refrain from calling out corrupt actions on party lines! She's an equal opportunity corruption fighter!

We also posted a note about the oil spill in the Gulf. With the Exxon-Valdez spill in Alaska twenty years ago, Madame knows what it's like to deal with such tragedy. However, she doesn't see it as a reason to abandon drilling and to continue to seek energy independence. She even spoke of her record quite a bit. I wonder if that means something...:)

Endorsement for Another Hockey Dad

Another day, another endorsement! BOTUS and I tagged teamed it, as usual. BOTUS sent out the initial announcement tweet, then I followed up with the post. Madame has decided to endorse another hockey dad,Tom Emmer. This one is a gubernatorial candidate from Minnesota, you know that state from which Madame Speaker Bachmann and the Minnesota Mullet Pawlenty hail. The Dude's platform is " Honoring the Constitution, Expanding Liberty and Fostering Economic Freedom". Sounds good to me.

Another One Bites the Dust!

Tonight was a rare occasion when Sarah and I didn't work together to put a Facebook post up on her page. However, there was some exciting news from Madame's lawyer, Thomas Van Fine (hey, for a human, he's a nice looking man). Another ethics complaint has been dismissed. He also called out those who are having a cow because Madame has made a lot of money and think that she resigned for the sole purpose of making money, which isn't the case. She stepped down because she wasn't able to do her job with everything that was being thrown at her. She did it for Alaska.

To the haters who threw this now dismissed ethics complaint at Madame, I have an embedded video to share with you:

An Update from a Slacking LOTUS

I've gotten lazy, haven't I? BOTUS and I have posted a few things lately, and I've slacked about reporting. Shame on me. Let's see. Well, on Friday we posted our support for Franklin Graham when the Opologizer administration dis-invited him from speaking at the National Day of Prayer. Hmm, I wonder if Obama "opologized" to Graham when he met with him this past weekend.

BOTUS has been busy with her pithy, yet caring condolences for those involved in the oil rig fire, witty smackdowns of the media regarding corruption in Goldman Sachs, and giving a shoutout to Michael Steele.

Today we posted another endorsement--a special one. This one was for Tim Burns who is running in a special election for a Congressional seat in Pennsylvania. Madame is supportive of the fact that he started his own business, and he's a "hockey dad". What's the difference between a hockey dad and a pit bull? Umm...well, you know what I mean. He's a businessman, not a bureaucrat. It'd be nice to have someone in government who has had a real job before.

Oh, I was surfing around Facebook last night, and I found a picture from a baseball game that Madame attended (without me!!!). Check it out. It's Madame and perhaps her future Homeland Security secretary, Arizona Governor Jan Brewer.

'Cuda Corruption Fighter Puts on Her Cape!

Since Madame couldn't speak in Houston tonight because of the Popcorn Jerk's trial, she and I didn't want a "good government crisis to go to waste" (he he), so we went to work!

Madame put on her corruption fighting cape and called out the Great Opologizer's administration on their ties to Goldman Sachs. Lobbyists, regulators, campaign money. It's dirty stuff!

As we all know, Madame has a history of corruption fighting! She did it Alaska, and it seems she wants to take it to another level. I think this may be a draft for a campaign commercial script! Hmm...

Madame believes in common sense regulations that protect capitalism and Americans, but not that covers the butts of the cronies!

Violation by the Popcorn Jerk

Do you all remember back in the day when the silly Tennessee boy, David Kernell, hacked into Madame's e-mail account during the VP campaign?

Well, the trial began yesterday, and man, is this bringing back scary flashbacks of the violation to both BOTUS and myself.

Unfortunately, Bristol has been called into to testify since the Popcorn Jerk got ahold of her telephone number. His thoughts on Bristol, " Not my type". That's right, too good for a jerk like you.

We'll see what happen, but I hope the Popcorn Jerk is brought to justice.

Oops! A Day Late, but Happy B-day Trig!

I blame this on my "press secretary", as she was on a post-speech "high" after hearing Madame 45 speak on Saturday, but we forgot to mention that yesterday, Trig turned 2!

BOTUS was on top of things, with a couple of tweets in honor of Trig's birthday. One of them even included a Bible verse! GASP! The softy southpaws won't like that. Another tweet had a cute birthday picture for Trig:

Mrs. Palin Goes to Washington....Illinois

Hello fellow rogues, my "press secretary" got to hear Madame speak last night. I'm going to let her take the keys and share her thoughts.



It's not everyday that you have opportunity to go with your personal heroine to hear your political heroine speak, but Saturday, April 17th was such an opportunity for me, as my mom and I attended Governor Palin's speech in Washington, IL. If I were to say one thing, I would say it was definitely a barn burner of a speech, and in central Illinois, there are a heck of a lot of barns to burn!

To give context to the speech, it took place in Washington, Illinois, a small town of about 13,000 people in central Illinois just outside of Peoria. The town of Eureka, home of Reagan's alma mater, Eureka College, is just a short 10-15 minutes from Washington. The event was a fundraiser for Five Points Washington, the town's community center. Some of the funds raised were also to be used for a scholarship program as well. During the question and answer session following the speech, the Governor mentioned that she chose to speak at this event because she knows what a blessing such community centers bring to a town, referencing the sports complex built in Wasilla when she was mayor.

The topic of the speech was " You Don't Need a Title to Make a Difference" and was the inaugural speech in a series on Lessons from Leaders. In her own signature style, the Governor effectively wove this topic into the speech also highlighting her political platform, record, and worldview, all while truly making the speech applicable and personal to central Illinoisans. She brought up at least three examples of people who made and are making a difference without a title. She began her speech speaking of Trig, who is turning 2 years old today. She spoke of how he may never hold a title, but he wakes up everyday in applause, bringing perspective and joy to those around him. She also spoke of how Reagan saved 77 lives when he worked as a lifeguard on the Rock River in Illinois when he was young, before he had a "title". She had the words "Lifeguards Needed" written on her palm. She also spoke of how we, as Americans, can make a difference without a title through our voice, our vote, and our freedom.

Regarding leadership, she spoke specifically of three former Presidents: Washington, Lincoln, and Reagan. She spoke about Washington's leadership--how true leaders respect the will and wisdom of the people and often were reluctant leaders who did not seek office, but the office sought them. She spoke of Lincoln's use of his stovepipe hat as a "traveling office" and how if it was good enough for Lincoln to store his notes in his hat, it was good enough for her to use her palm for her notes. She spoke quite a bit about Reagan, calling him a "son of Illinois". She spoke of his politics of both personality and conviction when it came to foreign policy, saying also that America needs his "Midwestern common sense" and "relentless optimism". Governor Palin, in a jab at President Obama, spoke of how a Eureka educated politician plays better in Peoria than a Harvard educated politician. At one point during the speech she stated that the next Lincoln or Reagan may be sitting in the audience. In my head, I thought,"the next Reagan is standing behind the podium!"

On a local level, Governor Palin praised central Illinois for being people who "cling to guns and religion" and who understand what she meant when she says, "don't retreat, reload". Politically, she spoke of how Obama's policies are affecting the region. The construction machine company, Caterpillar, is based out of nearby Peoria and employs quite a few people in the area. Governor Palin spoke of how President Obama came to Peoria last year claiming that the stimulus package would prevent Caterpillar workers from being laid off, which was not the case. She spoke of how the "economically illiterate" health care bill will cost the company $100 million in the first year alone.

More broadly, she spoke of the problems of a quadrupled national deficit, a $3.8 trillion budget, and the "mother of all unfunded mandates": the health care reform bill. Governor Palin criticized the President for bowing to world leaders and alienating allies like Israel.During the question and answer session, she mentioned that the President's comments about America being a military superpower, whether we like it or not was the statement that had taken her most aback of anything during President Obama's administration. However, her political rhetoric was not limited to criticisms, but included a great deal of what she called "time tested" solutions. She spoke of how prosperity cannot be legislated from Washington D.C., but must be earned through hard work ethic and by government getting out of the way. Additionally, she mentioned that more every day people, not politicians, are needed in government.

In sharing such solutions, she was very effective in tying in her record as governor and mayor , highlighting several of the examples that she mentioned in Going Rogue. Specifically, she mentioned how she lowered taxes and improved infrastructure as mayor as part of a pro-business, pro-economic growth strategy. She mentioned the main principles by which she governed Alaska. Government must live within its means. Resource development must be expanded. Money must be saved for the future, and earmarks must be slashed. During the question and answer session, Governor Palin spoke of how important it is that politicians realize that they are spending OPM (other people's money), and she highlighted that she fired of the personal chef and the sold of the jet.

The Governor has an amazing way of connecting with the people with whom she is speaking. After the speech, my mom said, "it was like you were listening to your best friend. She talks to you, not at you." I concur with this statement whole heartedly. Governor Palin spoke with such conviction, sincerity and optimism. I was also struck by how often she used the word "blessed". She seems to see every opportunity and experience as a blessing. I was amazed how focused and personal she made it for the audience she was speaking to by pulling in Reagan's ties to the area and the effects of the Obama administration on a large local employer. It truly was a blessing beyond words to hear America's point guard speak with such optimism and conviction.

So, this begs the age old question. Does Governor Palin play in Peoria? You betcha!

Commandress-in-Chief, whether you like it or not!



The Great Opologizer bemoaned America's greatness recently, and you know that Madame wouldn't sit down and shut up about that. She and I went to work. The Softy Southpaws and the LSM thought that Madame was done calling the President out on his foreign policy. She spoke of America's successes and how if American military powers are strong, then our allies would be supported as well. As she did when she was Governor, she called out the President on his cuts to missile defense, as well as his cuts to nuclear defense. As always, the final sentences are best: "Could it be a lack of faith in American exceptionalism? The fact is that America and our allies are safer when we are a dominant military superpower – whether President Obama likes it or not."

That's right, the Commandress-in-chief has spoken, President Obama, whether you like it or not. Madame and BOTUS even gave him 24 hour Twitter warning.


OK, well, LOTUS let me take over the keyboard for a while. Woohoo. I have the opportunity to see Governor Palin speak on Saturday night at 8:15 PM central time, and I hope to do some tweeting from the event. Though I cannot guarantee how much I'll tweet. This will be the first time that I get to hear the Governor speak, and I want to pay close attention. However, you can follow me on Twitter here, if you'd like. --Whitney

Sarah as Samantha Adams!

The First Dude, Madame and I were in Boston for the Tea Party, going back to the roots of the "movement" in 1773. Madame was transformed into Samantha Adams! There was no dumping of tea in the harbor, or as the Bostonians, say it, harba, but Madame hit on the issues. Constitutional government. Smaller government. Energy independence. American exceptionalism. She was optimistic as always.

The LSM and RINOish pundits I see spouting around youtube, the blogs, and the news sites as I go surfing all claim that Madame has no ideas or policies, but Madame is focused on 2010 right now. Unless we have the right guys and gals in DC, good policy cannot be implemented.



BOTUS and Madame offered their thoughts.

The LSM Have Become Straw Graspers!



Well, the LSM is at it again. This time they are up in arms over some of Madame's requests for when she speaks. For one, when we go on a speaking engagement, Madame asks for bendable straws and water bottles! Oh the horrors! I always knew the media grasped at straws when it came to the bosswoman, but now they're doing it literally!

Also, they have become wee-weed up over the fact that when we travel first class or we would like a private jet. Hey, sometimes I need the extra room! I think the LSM is actually more surprised that she doesn't travel on a broom complete with a pointed hat or via a helicopter toting a gun to shoot unsuspecting wolves.

Another day, another nontroversy. Sigh.

Sarah's Sarcasm

I was scanning the LSM websites today, and lo and behold, the Washington Compost, as that Great American, Mark Levin calls it, has a whole article dedicated to criticizing Madame's sarcasm! What?! In addition to Madame's effective criticism of the Opologizer's administration, her sarcasm is my favorite part of our work. The "author" says:

Sarcasm rarely plays well in politics -- particularly among the independent voters who typically decide elections. It's why naturally sarcastic pols -- President Obama among them -- largely avoid any wise-cracking in public.

Palin seems to be pursuing a different path -- growing more rather than less sarcastic the longer she spends on the national stage. (Remember that Palin's first ever major speech -- at the 2008 Republican National Convention -- showed glimpses of a sarcastic Palin but by and large was a study in earnestness.)

Palin's sarcasm strategy will almost certainly affirm to some within the party's base that she is their most able combatant against Obama. But, for others -- Republicans and independents alike -- it's likely to sow some doubts about whether she is up to the task of governing if she is elected to the nation's top office.

...

For Palin to move beyond her comfort zone of Republican base politics and into ground as a serious candidate for president in 2012, she will almost certainly have to significantly scale down the sarcasm in her speeches.


Yes, Madame often is sarcastic in her speeches and elsewhere. However, she is often quite serious and pointed when she contributes on Fox, and she balances her sarcasm with substance quite well in her speeches and well as our Facebook posts! This is one area where Madame is not conservative, but moderate-- in her use of sarcasm. However, this author doesn't always seem to get it. Back in the day, before Madame was John McCain's VP pick, Cillizza interviewed Madame. I don't think she expected McAnonymous to pick her at the time, but Cillizza made a mistake when he dissed Alaska, check out Madame's expression at the 2:30ish mark of the video linked here.

A Handy Guide to Governor Palin's Accomplishments

Hey faithful LOTUS readers! LOTUS is going rogue and is letting me, Whitney, post for her tonight. I just wanted to share a post that I blogged elsewhere. If we really want to make Madame 45 a reality, we have some work to do. This is grassroots, folks! I've put together, with the help of others, a guide of Governor Palin's accomplishments that we can share with others at Tea Parties, GOP events, or even with our family in friends. Thank you all for taking the time to visit the blog.

Due in part to the ineptness of the McCain campaign in 2008 and the mischaracterization and flat out lies from the media over the 20 months, Governor Palin's gubernatorial accomplishments are largely either misunderstood or unknown. However, Governor Palin accomplished quite a lot in her 2 and a half years as governor of Alaska. As supporters of the Governor, I thought it might be a good idea to have a handy resource of Palin's gubernatorial accomplishments. This may allow us to correct the record for our friends and family who may still think that the Governor personally shot wolves from a helicopter or cut funding for special needs children. Additionally, while none of us know the Governor's political future, many of us hope that she runs for President. I feel that having something tangible that we can hand out to individuals at GOP events, Tea Parties, other political gatherings, or wherever else to let others know about the Governor's accomplishments will open the eyes of many who are skeptical or uninformed Even many conservatives and Republicans still do not have a firm grasp of what Governor Palin did while in office.

With the wonderful assistance of some of the contributors at The Palination, Conservatives4Palin, The Design Conservative and US4Palin along with other knowledgeable Palin supporters, I have put together a two page (or, ideally, one page double sided) PDF summary of Governor Palin's accomplishments while she was in office. These accomplishments range from energy issues to 10th amendment issues to budgeting and national security. Please go here to download and print or e-mail the document, and please share it as you have opportunity. Should the Governor be a candidate in any future elections, her accomplishments will speak volumes regarding her political abilities and policy chops.

Obviously, one issue that may be raised if the Governor's accomplishments are mentioned is the fact that the Governor resigned halfway through her third year in office. This is a valid criticism. I do think that the Governor has sufficiently justified her decision to step down. Upon announcing her resignation, she said:

Every one - all 15 of the ethics complaints have been dismissed. We've won! But it hasn't been cheap - the State has wasted THOUSANDS of hours of YOUR time and shelled out some two million of YOUR dollars to respond to "opposition research" - that's money NOT going to fund teachers or troopers - or safer roads. And this political absurdity, the "politics of personal destruction" ... Todd and I are looking at more than half a million dollars in legal bills in order to set the record straight. And what about the people who offer up these silly accusations? It doesn't cost them a dime so they're not going to stop draining public resources - spending other peoples' money in their game.

It's pretty insane - my staff and I spend most of our day dealing with THIS instead of progressing our state now. I know I promised no more "politics as usual," but THIS isn't what anyone had in mind for ALASKA.


....

My choice is to take a stand and effect change - not hit our heads against the wall and watch valuable state time and money, millions of your dollars, go down the drain in this new environment. Rather, we know we can effect positive change outside government at this moment in time, on another scale, and actually make a difference for our priorities - and so we will, for Alaskans and for Americans.

In the 10 months that have passed, she has not changed her tune. She resigned because she recognized the cost that the frivolous ethics complaints were having on her state, and she saw how much of her staff's time and her own time were forced to deal with those issues. She recognized how much money these unsubstantiated complaints cost her family. She wasn't able to effectively fulfill her role as Governor, so she passed the reins onto someone who didn't have to be concerned that if he sneezed in the Lower 48, an ethics complaint would be thrown at him.

Additionally, she promised that she would "effect positive change outside of Government", and she has most definitely done that. Through her large and loud social media megaphone, the Governor has written many Facebook posts that have changed the course of debate and have effectively criticized the Obama administration's policies. She has been a champion of the Tea Party movement and the Pro-Life movement and has been a superstar on the stump in the early stages of the 2010 primaries.

The Governor has chosen, at least for the time being, to "effect change outside of Government". However, there have been numerous politicians who have resigned to effect change inside of government. Secretary Sebelius and Secretary Napolitano both resigned their Governors' offices to be part of President Obama's cabinet. Former Utah Governor Jon Huntsman resigned his gubernatorial position to be an ambassador to China. Secretary Clinton resigned from the Senate to be Secretary of State, and, of course, both our President and Vice President resigned from the Senate to take their positions. Would anybody say that these individuals "quit" on their constituents? I would say likely not. Governor Palin is the same. She has been able to speak more boldly for both Alaska and all Americans for the conservative principles this country was founded on now that she is outside of office and without the concern of a possible ethics violation been thrown at her.

So, I encourage you to please print off the document linked in this post and share it with anyone you feel needs to know more about what Governor Palin has achieved.

Again, a big thanks to all who helped me put this document together!

A Barracuda in the Bayou

Well, as expected, Madame gave a wonderful speech filled with optimism for our country, criticism for the softy southpaws, and of course, sarcasm with a smile down at the Southern Republican Leadership Conference in New Orleans. Being the goddess of energy, Madame spent a significant time discussing energy policy. She also spent a good amount of time calling out the the President on his foreign policy failings (i.e. the Obama Doctrine). She stood firm for Israel. She stood firm for conservatism. She was serious and wonkish, and she was optimistic!

Who dat?! MADAME 45!

Sarah and Obama on the Nuclear Playground

After an awesome day yesterday campaigning with the two conservative superheroines, we are heading to Nawlins for Madame to give a barnburner of a speech tomorrow! However, today, I'd like to do some video embedding. Madame and Madame Speaker were on Hannity last night, and Madame spoke about Obama's nuclear policy, comparing it to a little boy being asked to be punched in the face. Madame wishes that Obama would be more like Reagan. Obama nervously responded today. I wonder if the analogy Madame used hit too close to home for the President and reminded him of grade school in Indonesia. Finally, Madame wants Reagan? Her wish is my command:

Wonder Woman/ She-ra Princess of Power Rally

Madame spoke at a rally for the other pea in the kick butt conservative woman pod, Michele Bachmann. Let me tell you, as I was backstage, if you could have harnessed the energy from the 11,000 people at that venue, then America would be completely energy independent! Oh, and it cannot be forgotten that the Minnesota Mullet was there too! Decent guy.

Madame Speaker Michele spoke of smaller, constitutional government and defeating the softy southpaws' agenda. Then, she shared a story about military chaplains that brought a tear to my screen.

Madame, herself, was awesome as usual. It's amazing to see her campaign on behalf of someone whose principles she is fully behind. She spoke of how Madame Speaker Michele has been fighting against Pukelosi's liberalism and how, as a mother of five and a foster mom of 23, Madame Speaker Michele looks at things with a unique perspective.

These two ladies are awesome. That's right, Senator Benedict Arlen, they are ladies. They are the superheroines of the conservative movement. I just can't decide who is Wonder Woman and who is She-ra Princess of Power. Hmmm....



A Whine Convention in Vegas

Madame spoke at the Wine and Spirits Convention in Vegas today today. Apparently, a guy tweeting from there thought that Madame spoke too much about Obama. Well, it makes sense. After all, it was a w(h)ine convention!

BOTUS was thoughtful enough to help share a tweet about the miners killed in West Virginia.

We are in Minnesota Wednesday to campaign for Madame's P.I.C, Michele Bachmann. It should be good fun, but it might be messy. The thought of this event is enough to make softy southpaws' heads explode all across the country!

I hope you all have sufficient bandwidth because you can catch the event live here.

The most powerful words on Algore's creation!

I know it's been a while, but I was in a sugar coma over the weekend. Who knew that I couldn't really digest candy? I hope everyone had a great Easter!

This one blogger dude has an article about Madame. She is apparently the most powerful name on Algore's creation, the internet. While blogger dude doesn't think that Madame will ever be Madame President (silly dude), he does think that she has a powerful impact in media. Well, what do you think I'm here for, blogger dude?

We are in Vegas tomorrow. I hope that Madame leaves me in the casino while she speaks. I think that all of those hours of internet poker will really pay off!

A Celebration of Hope

I'm just going to let Madame share about real hope from Christ:

For many of us, the arrival of Easter means the arrival of a new season of joy – of Easter parades, Easter egg hunts, chocolate bunnies, and sweet Peeps topping off a family meal. Some may wonder why we merrily celebrate at a time when we’re remembering Christ’s crucifixion on the cross. And there is something to that. Good Friday is, after all, about God who became Man, dying on the cross for our sins. And yet we celebrate Easter Sunday, and we are right to do so.

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life” (John 3:16). This one verse sums up the miracle that is the Easter season and helps explain the celebration. Yes, Christ died for us, but in the end Easter isn’t a season of sadness. Ultimately, the story of Christ’s rising from the dead three days after the crucifixion is the story of the triumph of hope over despair.

Hope is one of America’s unique virtues. Hope makes us dream and achieve the seemingly impossible. It’s who we are, and it’s why we’re able to always believe that our best days are yet to come, both for our families and for our country. Easter time reminds us that we have every right to believe that this hope is based on time-tested truths and a solid foundation.

On behalf of the Palin family, I wish you all a peaceful and reflective Good Friday and a blessed and happy Easter Sunday.

- Sarah Palin

Romney 2012!



I have some news for all of you loyal LOTUS readers. I have taken a new job with Mitt Romney's 2012 campaign. Why shouldn't I? He's going to be the next president, right? I will get connect with his more than a quarter million Facebook fans and almost 10,000 Twitter followers! I can't wait! Plus, the President said the other day that Mitt's health care plan in Massachusetts is just like Obamacare, which means he has had a lot of success! He will be so much fun to work with! I just hope he doesn't touch his hair a lot when he types; I don't want to get my keys greasy! However, he is just so smart and sophisticated! He will make an excellent President!





Of course, I'm just joking! Happy Joe Biden day to you all!

President Obama Dithers on Drilling!


We went a bit rogue today and wrote a piece for the National Review Online instead of on Facebook. I love it when we mix it up a bit! It means I get to use a different font!

The Great Opologizer stated today that he was going to expand off-shore drilling. Of course, he is choosing to not drill in parts of Alaska. Hmm...

You know that wasn't going to sit well with Madame. Energy independence is like her 6th child! She went to work highlighting the softy southpaws tactics of trying to garner support for cap and tax due to this decision. However, for the Great Opologizer, his tactics weren't "drill, baby, drill" but "stall, baby, stall"! Stall, baby, stall is a lot like his war strategy--ditherer-in-chief!

Madame also spent some time highlighting her record, which is always awesome. Also, she reminded us that this is about jobs. Less drilling, fewer jobs!

Madame also said that she was going to speak about this next week in New Orleans! Yes, we cajun!

Put Sanctions on Imanutjob!

With the unfortunate passage of Obamacare last week, Madame's decided to shift gears this week by focusing on endorsements, holidays, and today, foreign policy!

For those softy southpaws who want to claim that Madame is inciting violence, take a look at this post. Madame is calling for peace, but perhaps much like the Great Communicator, she is calling for peace through strength. In this case, strength means tough sanctions on the Iranian leader, Imanutjob, who is still engaging in nuclear development.

Madame, who truly understand the importance of our ally, Israel, has also called for the Great Opologizer to not concede to the Palestinians while ignoring the Israelis, but instead to stand with our ally. She also calls all of us to pray! What?! The softy southpaws won't like that!

The Palin doctrine is on full display again: stand with our allies; don't sit with our enemies.

Endorsements and Holiday Wishes from the Commandress-in-Chief

Madame had another two fold Facebook posting today. First, as Commandress-in-Chief in waiting she announced the endorsements of three American heroes who are running for Congress: Lieutenant Allen West (FL-22), Captain Adam Kinzinger (IL-11), and Major Vaughn Ward (ID-1). You know how much American veterans mean to Madame. After all, she took a lot of heat for endorsing Senator McAnonymous from those who may not understand the virtue of Madame's loyalty, in spite of McAnonymous's RINOish ways.

However, she had another objective with these endorsements, "to remove the gavel from Nancy Pelosi’s grip". I wanted her to type "Pukelosi", but she wouldn't go for it. She's far more charitable than I.

Madame also took the time today to wish the Jewish community a happy Passover. This is especially good since our current President seems to have little regard for Israel.

I say, why can't she be commandress-in-chief now?

1667 Dozen People in Searchlight!

Oops, and I thought we were done for the day, but Madame had other things in mind. She had an awesome time in Searchlight yesterday. She gave a big thumbs up to the event. I think she had a great time tea-ing it up in Harry Reid's backyard!

Madame even shared some pictures from the event:

CNN said that there were dozens of people at the event, but even another LSM outlet, Politico, said there were 20,000 people there. Well, CNN, I guess you're right; there were 1667 dozen people there!

The key line though: "We’re ready for a fundamental transformation of Washington – no need for their desired “fundamental transformation of America.”

Amen, Madame, Amen.

Will the LSM Even Understand Sarcasm-Laced Sports Analogies?

Madame managed to provided the perfect balance of serious sanctity and snarky sarcasm today. As today is Palm Sunday, Madame and BOTUS provided a nice tweet honoring our Savior. As the media has been all up in arms (pun intended) claiming that Madame is inciting violence, Madame put the proverbial smack down on the media today with a Facebook post using "violence inciting" satire. It's just to good to not do the ol' copy and paste:
March Madness battles rage! My family and I join millions of Americans enjoying college basketball’s finest through March Madness. Underdogs always get my vote as we watch intense competition bring out the best in these accomplished teams.

The Final Four is an intense, contested series (kind of like a heated, competitive primary election), so best of luck to all teams, and watch for this principle lived out: the team that wins is the team that wants it more.

To the teams that desire making it this far next year: Gear up! In the battle, set your sights on next season’s targets! From the shot across the bow – the first second’s tip-off – your leaders will be in the enemy’s crosshairs, so you must execute strong defensive tactics. You won’t win only playing defense, so get on offense! The crossfire is intense, so penetrate through enemy territory by bombing through the press, and use your strong weapons – your Big Guns – to drive to the hole. Shoot with accuracy; aim high and remember it takes blood, sweat and tears to win.

Focus on the goal and fight for it. If the gate is closed, go over the fence. If the fence is too high, pole vault in. If that doesn’t work, parachute in. If the other side tries to push back, your attitude should be “go for it.” Get in their faces and argue with them. (Sound familiar?!) Every possession is a battle; you’ll only win the war if you’ve picked your battles wisely. No matter how tough it gets, never retreat, instead RELOAD!

- Sarah Palin



The sarcasm in this piece had me laughing so hard that I was rolling. It made it very difficult for Madame to type.

Time will tell if the softy southpaws and their pals in the media even understand this post. After all, Madame used sarcasm and political sports analogies, both are things that liberals never seem to get. Right, Anderson Cooper?

However, perhaps they have forgotten that Pukelosi used the pole vaulting/parachuting analogy, and the Great Opologizer told people to get in other people's faces. Hmm....media double standard?

Is It 2008, 2010, or 2012?

Time to catch my breath! Madame has been quite busy the past two days, so let me embed some video for you to see what we've been up to. It was like it 2008 all over again with Madame campaigning for Senator McAnonymous yesterday and today. She shines on the stump and does an especially good job of calling out the hecklers:




Let me say that she also did an excellent job in Senator "I don't" Reid "the bills" backyard, speaking in Nevada today. It almost seemed like she was on the 2012 campaign stump. Hmm. BOTUS chimed in on how well things went.



From my perspective as LOTUS, with all of the work that we have done over the past several months especially using Facebook, let me say that I'm very excited to see that we have reached a milestone. Madame now has more than 1.5 million Facebook friends! Not bad for someone whom the Left deems as an irrelevant quitter.

Attack of the Arctic "Cross Hare"

An Arctic "Cross Hare"

Well, the LSM and softy southpaws is all up in arms (pun intended) about Madame's Facebook post from yesterday where she put crosshairs on Congressional districts that she was targeting for conservatives to win back from Softy Southpaws who voted for Obamacare. These people are getting wee-weed up for no reason. She was simply saying that she was aiming, completely non-violently, at districts to help conservatives take back Congress. However, they claimed she was inciting violence. I've dug up a JPEG for your consideration as to whether or not they are inciting violence:

The President is shooting a basketball.
Is he inciting violence?



Also, Mittens Pomade's book made the top of the best sellers' list. However, if you check out the link, you can see that his book title has a dagger next to it because he sold his book in bulk; Madame didn't need to do this to make her book reach number one. Was Mittens inciting violence because of the daggers?

I don't get what's up with the LSM. Madame would never incite or condone violence, as you can see on her appearance on Uncle Glenn's show last week. Madame said violence is not the answer, voting is. Gee, and what was she asking people to do when targeting these districts? Vote!



Tuesday, March 23, 2010

Sarah the Community Organizer?

When Madame was on Hannity's show last night, she talked about how she wasn't said about the Obamacare vote last night, she was energized for the 2010 elections! However, when she started typing the title for today's post, I was shocked at the use of the word "organized"! However, she didn't mean it like the Great Opologizer meant it, she meant it's time to get focused on the 2010 elections. Madame is quite the shooter, whether she's on the basketball court or out hunting. Well, it became quite apparent that she has a whole slew of new targets for November: all of the softy southpaws who voted for Obamacare who represented districts that Senator McAnonymous and Madame won in 2008. Madame may have been re-loading after she resigned, but let me tell you, she is unloading now! See her targets below. Before the LSM has a cow, there are no targets in Alaska or Hawaii, so don't go claiming that Madame doesn't know how many states there are. The President on the other hand...
