Palin emails not what her enemies hoped for
SARAH PALIN IMAGINED GOD TALKING TO HER IN A DEEPLY TOUCHING EMAIL SHE WROTE TWO WEEKS BEFORE HER FIFTH CHILD, TRIG, WAS BORN WITH DOWN'S SYNDROME, it was revealed today.
The poignant message to family and friends, included in 25,000 pages of her private emails made public on Friday, may alter the way the former Governor of Alaska is viewed by the American public.
In April 2008, two weeks before Trig was born with Down's Syndrome, Mrs Palin sent the email to her friends and family from her official government account.
In the touching message, Mrs Palin writes from the voice of God, as 'Trig's creator, your heavenly father'.
SHE ADDRESSES THE 'UNREAL, SAD AND CONFUSING' NEWS THAT HER SOON-TO-BE BORN CHILD WILL HAVE DOWN'S SYNDROME.
Governor Palin biggest problem for the left she is such a real person, but one with values the left doesn’t agree with.
Old North Church vicar defends Palin on Revere
The vicar of Old North Church says he’s miffed at the “gotcha”-seeking media for twisting Sarah Palin’s stop at the Hub landmark earlier this month into an endless GOP-bashing circus.
PALIN CONTINUES TO BE RIDICULED FOR HER COMMENTS ON PAUL REVERE’S RIDE, BUT THE REV. STEPHEN T. AYRES TOLD THE HERALD THIS WEEKEND IT’S ALL A TEMPEST IN A TEA PARTY POT.
“I am amazed that this silly story refuses to die,” he said. “I lament what’s happening to our culture. Everything is reduced to one-upmanship or gotcha.”
AYRES SAID HE FEELS SOMEWHAT RESPONSIBLE BECAUSE HE TUTORED PALIN ON THE PARTICULARS OF REVERE’S 1775 RIDE AND TEEN EXPLOITS AS A BELL-RINGER AT THE FABLED CHURCH. So he has fired back at left-leaning bloggers by penning a post of his own on the church Web site.
Ayres said he welcomed Palin, her parents, and her daughter Piper to the church on the morning of June 2, as she traveled the East Coast on her “One Nation” tour. He gave them the usual “one if by land, two if by sea” lesson, BUT ADDED IN HOW REVERE FOUNDED THE CHURCH’S BELL-RINGING GUILD IN 1750 AS A TEEN AND HOW HE WARNED THE BRITISH AFTER BEING ARRESTED ON THE NIGHT OF HIS FAMOUS RIDE THAT THE MINUTEMEN HAD BEEN ALERTED.
Hmmm, the press is making fun of Palin who was relating what the vicar of the Old North Church told her. Now who should I believe? the press? Or the vicar?
Sarah Palin and the Mob
If you're not laughing along with Sarah Palin's playing Gotcha! with the media, you're not paying attention.
SARAH BARRACUDA IS PLAYING THE PRESS FOR SUCKERS, AND THEY HATE IT. But they can't they leave the story alone. Result: weeks of excited headline coverage, free publicity galore, right up her alley. The media mob are cutting their noses to spite their faces.
I don't know if we have the sleaziest and most corrupt media in American history -- maybe in human history? -- but THEY ALL DESERVE A PULITZER FOR AGGRAVATED MENDACITY. (That means "lying," if any of them are trying to read this). But it's not just their Central Party Line propaganda, day in and day out. It's also their personal wickedness, their abject ignorance, bottomless vulgarity and corruption, their lynch mob mentality -- even aimed at one-year old baby Trig Palin -- their idiotic mass conformity, and now, thanks to Governor Palin, they look like the idiots they really are. THE SHEER MALIGNITY OF THE LEFT AND ITS ORGANS OF PROPAGANDA IS BEING EXPOSED EVERY SINGLE DAY.
One of the most disgraceful villains at the WaPo, DANA MILBANK, STARTED A TWITTER CAMPAIGN A COUPLE OF MONTHS AGO TO DRIVE SARAH PALIN OUT OF THE MEDIA -- FOR AT LEAST A WEEK. Mr. Milbanks is a JourNOlist, you see. His job is not to tell the truth. Nope. It's to run coverups for the Demagogues and to destroy as many Republicans as possible. MILBANK IS A PC COMMISSARS OF CENSORSHIP AND PROPAGANDA. Trying to blacklist Sarah Palin is an act of flagrant censorship. That's what the Left tries to do to anybody who dares to speak up against them.
It’s amazing how many stories there are on Sarah Palin. The MSM seems intent on trying to destroy this woman and as the article here mentions, she seems to be tying them up in knots as they move against her. 25000 emails and what we find appear to be a real, caring human being. Now that is not the story they were looking for.
Crowd sourcing Governor Palin
The analysis of Sarah Palin's emails over the past few days MAY END UP TEACHING US MORE ABOUT THE FUTURE OF JOURNALISM THAN ABOUT THE FORMER ALASKA GOVERNOR'S PAST.
Drawing on METHODS USED BY BOTH WIKILEAKS AND SOCIAL NETWORKS, traditional news organizations such as The New York Times and The Washington Post used the Palin email dump as an experiment in new media techniques.
They sought collaboration from readers and posted massive volumes of documents online before reporters even had a chance to read most of the papers.
THAT SORT OF PUBLIC COORDINATION — OFTEN CALLED "CROWDSOURCING" — has drawn increasing interest from many journalists. David Lauter, chief of Tribune Co.'s Washington bureau, said HE AND HIS COLLEAGUES HAVE WONDERED WHETHER IT WOULD BE A MORE PRODUCTIVE WAY OF ANALYZING DATA.
"It's a concept that we'd been looking at," Lauter said. "This seemed like a great opportunity to test to see how it might work."
Actually this makes some sense, but it seems to neutralize one of the charges against bloggers, that is, that they are amateurs and news gathering requires professionals. I somehow think the MSM will end up regretting this.
Lady Thatcher: Did she dis Sarah Palin?
According to The Guardian, Lady Thatcher turned down a request for a visit by Sarah Palin referring to Governor Palin as being “nuts.” Now does this sound like Lady Thatcher or does this sound like a left wing rag trying to tear her down?

Dear Mr ——-,
Thank you for your message.
I have no inside knowledge of this business to offer I am afraid and certainly am not in a position to make any kind of statement on Lady Thatcher’s behalf. I’m happy though to give you my personal view.
THE GUARDIAN, OF COURSE, IS NOT A NEWSPAPER AT ALL SYMPATHETIC TO LADY THATCHER (OR TO MRS. PALIN), SO REPORTS ON THIS TOPIC, FROM THAT SOURCE, HAVE MINIMAL CREDIBILITY. If nothing else, would Lady Thatcher have ever described a prominent US conservative politician as ‘nuts’, or approved an ‘ally’ who used the description? I would hope that question answers itself.
Of course, SADLY, LADY THATCHER’S HEALTH IS NOT GOOD THESE DAYS AND SUCH CONSIDERATIONS NATURALLY DOMINATE HER SCHEDULE. That much is true. Someone once said that if you plaster together the true and the false you thereby manufacture the plausible, BUT IN THIS CASE I DON’T THINK EVEN THAT MUCH HAS BEEN ACHIEVED BY THE GUARDIAN.
On the ‘Malvinas’, the OAS never learns and the State Department endlessly seeks to curry favour with it for the sake of the quiet life. The question is a closed one as far as we in Britain are concerned, as it is in the Falklands themselves where opinion is undivided.

The Alinsky Alert System
Unfortunately, because there is so much intra-circle competition among conservatives, new ideas are sometimes discouraged or outright ignored. That is not necessary here. Since SARAH PALIN HAS DONE FAR MORE THAN ANY OTHER KNOWN INDIVIDUAL TO DEVELOP AND DISPLAY THE MEANNESS AND SOMETIMES OUTRIGHT HATRED BY THE LEFT FOR PEOPLE WHO DISAGREE WITH THEM, it is fitting that she be given the entire credit for the new system of political commentary called Alinsky Alerts.
RULE NUMBER FIVE OF SAUL ALINSKY'S RULES FOR RADICALS CALLS FOR RIDICULE OF THE OPPOSITION WHENEVER THERE IS OPPORTUNITY. Alinsky dedicated his book to Lucifer and therein opened the gate to misconduct, just so long as it serves the cause. It seems the more vitriolic the attack the better. And truth, accuracy, fairness, all those things are simply a crutch for weak people and have no play in the radicals' game unless used in some kind of guise…..
….The Alert should fill the comment sections of every related article on the Internet. People on the right should shout out loud, over and over, "SHOULD WE CALL FOR AN ALINSKY ALERT?" Can you hear Limbaugh, Levin, Hannity and others say, "Well, we have a new Alinsky Alert today." Think about the possibilities. Again, think about the possibilities. RIDICULE IN THE OTHER DIRECTION MIGHT EVEN BE KIND OF FUN. GOOD GRIEF, WHAT IF THE KIDS START USING IT TO DEFEND AGAINST THE BULLYING THAT THEY MUST CONTEND WITH ALMOST EVERY DAY. ALINSKY ALERT! ALINSKY ALERT!....
A novel idea which has some merit. Ridicule the ridicule.
Boehner draws laugh
U.S. House Speaker John Boehner drew laughs from an audience at Ohio State University with a joke about the name of a colleague involved in a scandal over lewd photos.
Boehner said today during a commencement speech at Ohio Stadium that his own last name has been pronounced to rhyme with the words honor and leaner and even "boner."
Then he said:"THANK GOD IT'S NOT WEINER."
Weiner has been reduced to a punch line. His political effectiveness is over. With this in mind, expect to see his resignation soon.
