Obamacare Menagerie

Well, I have to say that today, the Great Opologizer made it easy for Madame to call him out. At the GOP Retreat Friday, the President made some meandering statement in which he admitted that there were "stray cats and dogs" in the bill (aka special favors and provisions). Well, at first he said that these dogs were not in the bill, then he said that they were being taken out of the bill before finally admitting that they were in the bill. Huh? I guess that's what happens when he doesn't have TOTUS by his side (or should I say by his front). Madame was happy to bring to light this statement.

Also, Madame again pointed to the GOP solutions that were being offered, but she didn't do so without trying to push the often wimpy, but somewhat good GOPers: Boehner, Cantor, Pence, and Ryan. Her final statement: " I implore them to speak louder because we’re listening, and we’re counting on them! " That's right, boys! Speak up!

Not RETREATing, Reloading!

While Madame was not at the GOP retreat today, she did offer a new post to answer the President's call to suggest other ideas for health care reform. Madame was happy to take up the offer. She wasn't retreating like other GOPers, she was reloading!

And, boy did she unload on our other post tonight! She called out the Opologizer administration for their blundering decision to try terrorists in New York which they are now trying to reverse. However, Madame recognized their facade! They are trying to create a "crisis" so they can propose a radical solution. In fact, Madame stated a few examples of the policies that the President is trying to enact or " we're all going to die!". Yep, in a sense it was another "death panel" post.

Madame, as always, calls it like she sees it! While the Obama administration calls terrorism "man caused disasters", Madame calls terrorists " dangerous haters-of-America", and she called for the terrorists to be tried in a military tribunal!

The Common Sense SOTU Rebuttal

Well, we all saw Governor McDonnell do a solid job giving the GOP rebuttal to the President's SOTU lecture, but, today, Madame wrote a 5 nightstick piece. I think if Tingles Matthews would have read Madame's post he would have said, " the whole time I was reading it I forgot she was a woman".

Madame really tried to be as nice as possible by starting the post with "while I don’t wish to speak too harshly about President Obama’s state of the union address"but here's a list of all the crap you've done to the country in the past year. Madame didn't mince words, so I suggest you read the whole thing. But. here's a summary of all the areas Madame in which called out the Great Opologizer: lack of credibility, contradiction, partisanship, lack of common sense, blaming Republicans, a bad health care plan, lobbyists, drastically increasing the debt, bailouts, taking over the auto industry, discussion of a second stimulus, feet dragging on oil leases, lack of support for Afghan women and Iranian democracy, lack of foreign policy discussion, and a fundamental disconnect with the American people. Whew.

Madame even throw in a few thoughts of her own for solutions . And, as always, the last line was great: "Real leadership requires results. Real hope lies in the ingenuity, generosity, and boundless courage of the American people whose voices are still not being heard in Washington."

That's right, Mr. President, maybe God gave you big ears for a reason--to listen!

Was that too harsh?

The SOTU Address or an Opologist Lecture?

Well, the Great Opologizer gave his State of the Union address. I knew it was going to be a long speech so I preemptively sent TOTUS a case of Red Bull so that he could stay awake. I'll summarize the speech for you all. Blame Bush. Condescension. Spending freeze. Continued crazy ideas on health care reform and climate change. Criticism of the Supreme Court. Hypocrisy. Disconnect. Etc. He even plagiarized Madame and spoke of common sense. Grr!!

If you didn't have the chance to watch it, I'll have to let you know that VP Biden's tie and Pukelosi's suit matched (Barf). Also, the Great Opologizer invited the Ft. Hood heroes, but didn't even take the time to acknowledge them.

You must watch Madame's excellent analysis of the speech embedded above. It was also my Foxnews debut! I'm seated right behind Madame. How did I do? Madame did an excellent job summarizing the SOTU in one word: lecture. You tell 'em, Madame. She also appeared to comment before the SOTU and on Hannity. There's a lot good stuff there too. Madame's not very happy about the Great Opologizer bashing the Supreme Court and the Constitution. She also said that the factcheckers will busy tonight! Hmm, I wonder if there will be more fact checkers to for the State of the Union address than for Madame's book.

I wonder if we'll do a Facebook post on this later. I'd better do some hibernating so that I'm ready to go if we do.

CBS, Don't Punt the Pro-Life Message!

Madame posted another good note today about the double standard that "women's rights" groups have. They are rightfully protesting advertisements that demean and objectify women, but at the same time, they are not happy with the pro-life ad that football player Tim Tebow is appearing in during the Super Bowl. I had to remind Madame that if it weren't for double standard, some softy southpaws wouldn't have standards!

Madame challenged CBS not to cave to the women's rights groups. Between the Perky One, the Pervy One, and the stupid bus tour story, Madame isn't very happy with what CBS has done. I hope that CBS does the right thing with this one. Last year, when NBC broadcast the SuperBowl, they gave in and chose not to show the following powerful pro-life ad:

P.S. My press secretary wanted me to share with you that she is very excited because she got tickets today to see Madame speak in Illinois in April!

Madame's Pre-SOTU Nightstick!

My keys are hurting! Man, after this Facebook post tonight. Madame meant business, and that means that she typed hard! I have to say that this one left me speechless. It also made me wonder if this was a Facebook post or a campaign ad?

I know that Madame said she doesn't need a title to make a difference, but the title of this one was great: "Mr. President: Please Try, 'I'm Listening, People,' Instead of 'Listen Up, People!'". At first I thought Madame was making fun of the Great Opologizer's ears, but really she just wants him to listen to the American people.

Madame even included 19 links in this post! This was fun for me; it made my job more interesting. Do you know how much energy a LOTUS has after 19 hyperlinks?

This post was a massive type, type, type, nightstick! Let's make a list of all the things that Madame called the President out on, shall we?

His lack of understanding of the discontent of the American people, his massive number of speeches and interviews, policies that the American people don't want, lack of leadership, lack of free market health care reform, closed door deals, massive spending, lobbyists in the Obama administration, no health care discussion on C-SPAN, Unread bills in Congress, the lack of allowance of the American people to read the bills, excessive pork in the stimulus bill, extending the bailouts, broken promises on spending cuts, broken promises on jobs, lack of private sector experience in the administration, and the overall disconnect between the promises of candidate Obama and President Obama.

Whew, if this is what Madame writes before the State of the Union address, I can't imagine what she'll have to say after the State of the Union.

As always, the last lines were best: "
Candidate Obama over-promised; President Obama has under-delivered. We understand you, Mr. President. We’ve listened to you again and again. We ask that you now listen to the American people."

Where's the energy, TOTUS?

Madame wonders what's the
Great Opologizer's Energy Plan?

Today, Madame posted two notes on Facebook. The first one asked what the Great Opologizer's plan on energy is? She spoke about the President's lack of an good energy policy is "one aspect of the president’s problem". Yep, just one of the President's problems! Madame also linked this article!I know, shocker! The Perky One probably still thinks she doesn't read! Madame also challenged the President to discuss his energy plans in his State of the Union address on Monday. Madame is an instigator, isn't she? If the President responds directly to this invitation, then it shows that Madame is in his head. If he doesn't respond, it may just further solidify Madame's charge that he has no energy plan. Yep, the President's between Barack and a hard place!

The other post was a congrats to the Friendship Circle, a non-profit organization that connects special needs kids with teenage volunteers. Congrats to them on on winning the Chase Community Giving award!

I cannot end today's post without sharing some sympathy for TOTUS. You see, the President used TOTUS to speak to 6th graders last week! TOTUS is so embarrassed that his boss could speak to 6th graders without his help, and this is being displayed proudly on the White House website. Poor TOTUS!

Oops, I forgot to play TV Guide

Oh my! I forgot to update y'all (I'm practicing for when we go to Texas next month) about two TV programs that were on yesterday. Madame posted about these on Facebook. I hope you will accept my apology, but if not, I'm willing to go on apology tour to apology to you all personally. TOTUS told me how such a tour is done.

First, Madame and Bristol went on Okra's show to talk about Madame's new gig, and Bristol spoke about her pledge to wait to have sex again until she got married. Despite Okra's pushiness, rudeness, and complete shock, Bristol stood her ground and Madame was a good mama grizzly.

Madame also posted about Uncle Glenn's show that was supposed to be a real eye opener.

We even posted a nice educational video about the economic principle of moral hazard.

I feel I should add another jpeg comparison as part of this post. Madame's hairstyle on Okra's show yesterday was quite similar to Piper's hair on Babs Walters' show during the book tour.

Palin: Pro-Life

Madame posted a beautiful post about the 37th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision tomorrow. By the way, isn't it providential that Madame and Bristol will appear on Oprah's show tomorrow to talk about motherhood on the anniversary of this decision? Rather than let my silliness get in the way of something as important as the pro-life movement. I'd like to simply do some hyperlinking of some links that I think may be pertinent to the pro-life movement:

Join the Virtual Pro-Life March

Madame and Bristol are "glad they chose life"

Bachmann-Palin Overdrive!

Today Madame announced that she is going to campaign for commonsense candidates! These candidates include none other than Senator McAnonymous. Now, I've ventured over to Madame's Facebook page, and some people seem a little upset that Madame will be supporting McCain. I understand that he can be a RINO a lot of the time, but he was rogue enough to pick Madame for his VP candidate! That shows he does have a great deal of smarts! Plus, he's shown a lot more fire in his belly as of late regarding the health care bill and trying terrorists on American soil!

Madame will also be campaigning for Texas Governor Rick Perry and my second favorite Madame, Michele Bachmann! Just think of what will happen to the softy southpaws when those two women are campaigning together!

Madame used the plural versions of Governor, Congressman, and Senator. I wonder who else she'll be supporting. At least we'll have some variety on the trail: Texas, Minnesota, and Arizona!

A Blue State Turns Brown!

I will be writing this post in brown in honor of the newest Senator of Massachusetts! I just got off of Skype with TOTUS. I had to do some major consoling! Not just because of Scott Brown's victory, but because he still reeling from the Great Opologizer's handling of reading TOTUS when a heckler interrupted the President's campaign speech for Marcia Croaxley. Poor TOTUS! He's so overworked, and his boss is currently curled in the fetal position crying his eyes out!

Madame was super busy tonight. She talked to Greta via phone discussing Brown's win! You can listen to her call above. The BOTUS helped out with that one, and she also helped Madame make a congratulatory call to Senator-elect Brown. Then, she and I got to work on a brilliant Facebook post and a nice tweet this evening! She not only congratulated Senator-elect Brown; she also was nice enough to the softy southpaws some advice on health care reform. Isn't she charitable? As always, Madame's last line was best: "
When you go to Washington, may you never forget the ordinary citizens you met while driving that truck through the great Commonwealth of Massachusetts." So while President Obama and the softy southpaws continue to throw people under the bus, Senator -elect Brown will arrive in Washington in a truck!

If a fiscal conservative can win in Massachusetts, what does that say for the rest of the country? Madame had warned in earlier Facebook posts that 2010 was coming. Well, 2010 is here! This is a good start!

The only thing missing from today is Madame asking John Kerry, "why the long face?"

President Obama the Twit

Stop the presses!!! The Great Opologizer sent his first tweet today! The LSM is treating this like it is as historical as the moon landing! If I had eyes, I would roll them!Well, I guess this goes to show that sometimes The Great Opologizer is indeed a twit, even though he has admitted that he hasn't tweeted until that time! You may recall that even Willow has tweeted before in addition to Madame's tweets!

Of course, I suppose that we can take heart in the fact that this is likely Obama's least expensive "accomplishment" to date!

Madame 45 and Dr. King-Updated

I'm simply going to let Madame 45 and Dr. King speak today. Madame tweeted: On MLK Day,remembr his selfless,faithful efforts 2 destroy racial walls."Faith is taking 1st step even when u don't see the staircase"-MLKjr

Madame wrote:
Tomorrow, America honors the memory of one of our greatest – Martin Luther King, Jr. He used his gifts and talents in selfless, mighty ways to mobilize efforts against racial discrimination and is deserving of our honor.

Please take a moment to tell your children about this great man. He fought for liberty and equality because he knew they were God-given and he knew that no government should be empowered to thwart our freedom. King summarized his mission when stating that no one should be judged based on skin color, but by the content of one's character.

Seeming to have a foreboding notion of how quickly life passes, he did not waste time on pettiness. He believed that “the quality, not the longevity, of one’s life is what is important.”

May our children follow in the footsteps of giants like King, who sincerely respected equality.

- Sarah Palin

“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.” – MLK

Update: Unfortunately, there were some people making racist comments on Madame's page, so she decided to call them out on it:

Sarah's Excellent, Intelligent Union Boss Takedown

As has become custom recently, BOTUS sounded a warning bell to the softy southpaws about another Facebook missile to be launched Madame. She used a bit more informal tone in this post, using words like "doozy" and "boondoggle". Madame hit right at the heart of blue collar America, by supporting union members who may not be on the same page as their bosses when it comes to health care reform. After all, Madame knows all about unions as the First Dude was a union member!

She discussed how it wasn't right for taxes on union Cadillac health care plans to be delayed until 2018 and how it wasn't right for Nebraska to get a special Medicaid deal!

For Madame, it isn't about right or left; it's about right and wrong too! This is just wrong. The back room deals that are going on are wrong! It seems that Obama has control off all of random arrangements of the alphabet MSNBC, CBS, AFSCME, ACORN,SEIU etc. Well, I'd like to re-work one of them for you:

Union Boss Takedown

Not an Interview, Not a Discussion, A Contribution!

From Adoring Palin

Madame was on Hannity tonight as a contributor. On Big Head Bill's show, Bill interviewed her and didn't let her fully contribute. On Uncle Glenn's show, Madame and Glenn had a very good discussion, but she really didn't get the chance to contribute. Tonight, she contributed big time. It didn't hurt that she mentioned our work too! Check out the 3:15 point!

Also, last night, in all her servant's heart, Madame decided to post a link the Red Cross's website so that people could join her and Todd in donating to the efforts following the horrific earthquake in Haiti.

Caution! Liberal Heads Exploding!

Glenn Beck doing his Charlie Gibson impersonation (I think)

Madame made her second appearance as a Fox News analyst by going in Glenn Beck's show! I don't know if any liberals were watching, but if they did, their heads probably exploded. Madame and Glenn alone make liberals' heads spin, but when they started talking about faith and God and politicians, man, that had to make some liberals heads explode! They even teased about hosting SNL. Wouldn't that be a hoot? I'd love to see Madame's impression of Tiny Fea!

I think Madame enjoyed, but I think poor Glenn was sick! Poor guy! You can check out the full video here.

I found out today, though, that I might be getting a lot busier here soon because Madame said in an interview today that she was going to write another book! Everyone knows that Madame knows energy better than Nancy Pukelosi knows botox, so I wonder if that what she's going to write about? Of course, Madame could go rogue and write about something else: America's greatness, free market principles, the importance of honoring our military. All I can say is I've now adjusted to the 4 hour time difference between Alaska and New York, and I'm ready to go!

The Debut!

From Adoring Palin

Short post tonight, folks! Madame debuted on BOR's show tonight. Check it out. Madame has let me, the LOTUS Apple, loose in the Big Apple to go site seeing. It's been quite fun.

Madame will be on Glenn Beck's show tomorrow. Be ready!

Madame 45 Rearranges Reagan's Playbook!

Amazingly designed by Karen Allen

Well,well, well. It has been quite the interesting last 24 hours. Last night we heard Steve Schmuck spread lies about Madame on 60 Minutes. It's all good though; Steve Schmuck and Katie "the Perky One" Couric have something in common: their credibility is indirectly proportionate to the length of their hair.

But the big news of the day is that Madame is going to be a contributor to Fox News! This means that she will probably get to work with some of the cool people I've met in New York and throughout the country like Sean, Bill, and Greta. She's also going to be doing periodic episodes of a show called "Real American Stories" about Americans overcoming adversity. I wonder if that means we'll be going on more road trips! I know one thing for sure. This move means that Madame is now officially the JOTUS: Journalist of the United States. Next move: POTUS!

The BOTUS informed me that this was such big news that Madame had become a trending topic on twitter when the news first came out. Then, tonight, Madame and BOTUS tweeted this message.

Allow the LOTUS to play political pundit for a moment. The Great Communicator began as a media personality then became a governor before becoming President. Madame may just be rearranging his playbook by starting as Governor, then working as a media personality before becoming President.

Madame, the Arctic Fox, may end up being crazy like a Fox by being on Fox!

Upcoming Travels for Madame and the LOTUS

Madame is going to be doing some more traveling and speaking over the next few months. She's added a few more events on BOTUS's calendar. I thought I should share some of these with you all.

Madame will be speaking at a Tea Party event in Nashville in February. Oh, you know how I love parties! I wonder if Madame will let me check out some of the country music sights while she is there. Madame's downloaded a lot of country music on my hard drive, and I've grown to love it.

We will be headed to the Ohio Right to Life event in March. The pro-life issue is one of Madame's favorite issues to speak about.

Madame will be speaking at a Christian women's event in Kentucky in April. If you've read Going Rogue, you know that Madame loves the Big JC!

I'm ready to go and rack up those frequent flyer miles!

Madame Puts Principles over Politics Again

Meg "the Enforcer" Stapleton came out today and shared that Madame wasn't going to attend Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) saying, "we support those who advance our core beliefs and lead by principle". Well, some of things CPAC has done doesn't align with what Madame stands for. They once engaged in a pay-to-play type of scheme in sponsorship. No good.

However, Madame has decided to go rogue in the Bayou. She will be speaking at the Southern Republican Leadership Convention in April. Mittens Pomade, Aw Schucksabee, and the Minnesota Mullet will be there too. Boring! It's a good thing for Madame that we will not be going during Mardi Gras. Things would get crazy with the LOTUS on the loose in the Big Easy during Mardi Gras!

The LOTUS Goes Youtube Surfing

Madame had an excellent interview with Sean Hannity today discussing our Facebook post yesterday, health care reform, and the upcoming 2010 elections. In her characteristic colloquialisms, Madame threw in a fun word that the "educated class" likely won't get: Schnuckered. Check out the Youtube links, and you'll see what I mean!

I wanted to share with you all some talent that I discovered while surfing around Youtube. As you may have read in Going Rogue, Madame has taken issue, for good reason, with people using photoshop. One person even Photoshopped a picture of Trig in a very bad way! However, what I found today was someone using Photoshop in an outstanding way. I wish my press secretary was talented enough to do something like this. Enjoy:

Madame 45 Takes on Tighty Whitey Terrorism

So we've been taking it slow over the holidays (just like the Great Opologizer). I knew Madame was gearing up for a good one after the tight whitey terrorism attempt on Christmas, and she did not disapppoint. We went to posting this afternoon, but, of course, as has become custom recently, Madame has employed the BOTUS to give the President advanced warning before another "BOOM! Taste my nightstick" Facebook attack!

Now, this one hurt me. Madame doesn't like it when people don't take national security seriously so she types extra hard. She started off by using the Opologizer's administration's own words against him 5 times in the first paragraph! Madame calls it like she sees it. It's terrorism, not a "man-caused disaster".

She then took the President to the woodshed on his rhetoric and his action as this whitey tighty terrorist is receiving the same rights as an American citizen--Miranda rights, a lawyer, etc . Hmm, it seems like the words that she spoke near a year and a half ago at the RNC are ringing true when she said, " al-Qaeda terrorists still plot to cause catastrophic harm on America, and he's worried someone won't read them their rights?". Today, she says, " It simply makes no sense to treat an al-Qaeda trained operative willing to die in the course of massacring hundreds of people as a common criminal ...Giving foreign-born, foreign-trained terrorists the right to remain silent does nothing to keep Americans safe from terrorist threats". Just call her Palin the Prescient!

As always, the closing line of her post was great: "the real nature of a terrorist threat requires a commander-in-chief not a constitutional law professor". Ouch. The truth hurts, and as someone who taught Constitutional law, the President should know that the second article of the Constitution is devoted most to outlining the role of Commander-in-Chief.

Happy Birthday, Alaska!

Well, since it is the new year I thought I get a makeover! One of my press secretary's friends, Karen Allen, made me a beautiful new banner that I decided to upload for the new year! You all know I have a little bit of a struggle with vanity, so I was thrilled that Karen included 8 pictures of me on the banner! I still can't seem to have the servant's heart that Madame does. Sigh. The banner also includes some awesome American flag, Facebook, US Capitol building, Northern Lights, and Ronald Reagan (Madame's favorite President) wallpaper! You see, I'm well dressed! Karen also included the wonderful moose and a picture of Madame with my favorite little boy, Trig. This picture was taken while Madame was wearing THE hat. The banner also includes forget-me-nots, Alaska's state flower.

Speaking of Alaska, today is Alaska's 51st birthday! She became a state on January 3rd, 1959! Happy birthday to the Last Frontier!

Happy New Year!

I would like to wish you all a happy new year! I checked out the icon tray today, and I realized that there was a new year in the date: 2010. I think that Madame has been anticipating this year. In a few one of her recent Facebook posts, Madame typed: "But we’re paying attention, and 2010 is coming. " Yep, those 2010 elections have the softy southpaws as nervous as the Great Opologizer when he has to speak without TOTUS.

The BOTUS informed all of you the Madame and the family celebrated the New Year by snowmachining last night. As much as I wanted to go, I knew it was for the best that I didn't go. North Face has yet to come out with a "coat" that fits me right. I knew if I went out in the Alaskan cold, it would be the death of me. I don't function at those temperatures.

When I was surfing last night, I was honored, humbled, and surprised to discover that my little blog received an award. Texas4Palin awarded the LOTUS blog the "Sarah Smile award" and that the blog is "creative, humorous and very well written." If you notice as you're reading that this post is slightly pink, it's because I'm blushing. Those words can't possibly describe me. I'm really very honored. I would encourage you to check out the blog winners at the link. They really are quite good.
