This woman is trailer trash gold, and in my opinion she is very fit to accurately represent America and Americans to the world.
One of the biggest misconceptions that Europeans have about the Yoo Ess of Ey is that America is the land of Sex and the City, and Law and Orderm with intelligent and caring public servants, and Dynasty and JR Ewing, well spoken, good looking, intelligent, erudite people.
America is the land of Married with Children.
There are oases of civilization - we call those "good neighborhoods in big cities" - such as parts of Chicago, New York, San Francisco, Austin Texas...
But all around them, there is the majority.
People with high school education - or worse (hell, American high school education is bad enough...).
People whose world view is limited to their small town whose chief business is a jail (I shit you not - many American small towns survive only because there is a prison in the town, which supplies jobs to over 60% of the population to some of them - forget farming or skilled labor...).
Since coming over to a small town, my eyes have been really opened.
This is why on American TV, the political pundits accuse American politicians of being elitist (read - intelligent) and this is perhaps the only country in the world where a politician will go out of his/her way to assure the voters that he/she is NOT intelligent, that he/she is just like them, a dumbass whose chief ambition is to drink beer with them at a local bar while watching an American football game and then, while drunk, going squirrel hunting with a shotgun.
Europeans, and the rest of the world - folks - THIS is the REAL America.
Welcome to my hell...
So, Miss Palin...
Where oh where do I start?
TIME magazine article on the trailer trash woman:
But in the first major race of her career — the 1996 campaign for mayor of her hometown, Wasilla — Palin was a far more conventional politician.
One thing all sides agree on is that the valley was in flux. The old libertarian pioneer ethos was giving way to a rising Christian conservatism. By shrewdly invoking issues that mattered to the ascendant majority, Palin won the mayor's race.
Hot button issues like abortion.
Classic Republican strategy - scream about a non-issue, such as religion, morals, "family values" or abortion while taking the focus away from less important things such as public safety, the economy, etc...
Stein says that as mayor, Palin continued to inject religious beliefs into her policy at times. "She asked the library how she could go about banning books," he says, because some voters thought they had inappropriate language in them. "The librarian was aghast." That woman, Mary Ellen Baker, couldn't be reached for comment, but news reports from the time show that Palin had threatened to fire Baker for not giving "full support" to the mayor.
Book bans in the local library?
And then threatening to fire the librarian for not doing it?
Hmm, shades of those pleasant German youth in cool looking uniforms, dontcha think?
How about abusing the job for personal reasons?
The person in question is state trooper Mike Wooten -- Palin's ex-brother-in-law who's embroiled in a bitter custody and divorce battle with Palin's sister. Back in the second week of August, well before Palin became a national political figure, TPMMuckraker was reporting on this story.
Read this whole thing, and then pay attention to the last sentence please:
The Palin family had a feud with Wooten prior to her becoming governor. They put together a list of 14 accusations which they took to the state police to investigate -- a list that ranged from the quite serious to the truly absurd. The state police did an investigation, decided that 5 of the charges had some merit and suspended Wooten for ten days -- a suspension later reduced to five days. The Palin's weren't satisfied but there wasn't much they could do.
When Palin became governor they went for another bite at the apple. Palin, her husband and several members of her staff began pressuring Public Safety Commissioner, Walt Monegan -- a respected former Chief of the Anchorage police department -- to can Wooten. Monegan resisted, arguing that the official process regarding Wooten was closed. And there was nothing more that could be done. In fact, during one of the conversations in which Palin's husband Todd was putting on the squeeze, Monegan told Todd Palin, "You can't head hunt like this. What you need to do is back off, because if the trooper does make a mistake, and it is a terminable offense, it can look like political interference."
Eventually, Palin got fed up and fired Monegan from his job.
Palin had an intense dislike to a State Trooper (a policeman), a Mr. Wooten. Palin and her trailer trash family, once she was elected to the powerful office of the governor, pressured a public official, Mr. Walt Monegan, to fire Woten.
He balked, and refused, because there already was an investigation into Mr. Wooten done by the police and he was already punished - suspended for a few days.
For standing up for the law and due process, the harlot fired Mr. Monegan.
There was an investigation done by the state legislature in Alaska, as this abuse of power was a bit TOO blatant and too obvious.
Multiple members of her staff had raised Wooten's employment with Monegan. Indeed, the state police had a recording of one of her deputies pushing Monegan to fire Wooten. That evidence forced Palin to change her story. Palin said that this was the first she'd heard of it and insisted the deputy wasn't acting at her behest, even though the trascript of the recorded call clearly suggested that he was.
And the whole baby-drama-mama saga...
I can tell you, living in a small town, there is not much you can do with your free time. Hobbies include hunting, fishing, lots of drinking and lots of fucking - out of sheer, mindless boredom.
So it is no surprise that the 17 year old daughter of our future Vice President, the trailer park beauty named Bristol (cool name! strip club material!) is not married, and pregnant.
Which is funny, as Mrs. Palin is an evangelical christian, and is all about abstinence education ("kids! don't have sex before marriage!") and is focused on preying being an answer to most of the social ills of society and her family problems.
She is a creationist, in other words....
You know, one of those folks who believe that the World was made by god in 7 days, then came the flood, and the whale ate Jonah, and an old dude parted the sea so some semites could escape from other semites...
Yes, I have sources - Washington Post:
Although her résumé does not fit the mold of most vice presidential nominees, her acts of dissidence appear to have endeared her to McCain, who regards himself as an independent-minded Republican. Her evangelical Christian faith -- she believes in creationism and is adamantly opposed to abortion -- may help him court skeptical social conservatives.
So, summing up - she is a religious nut (evangelical christian), who tried to ban books in her local library, then threatened to fire the librarian who refused to do it.
Next in her career she threatened to fire a policeman because he divorced her sister. She involved government employees who worked for her to press for this man's firing from his job, and when she became a governor fired a government employee for not firing the policeman and obeying the law of the land and due process.
She is for abstinence education and "family values" instead of sex education in schools, the effectivness of which policies is picture perfect shown with her 17 year old daughter pregnancy.
But she is representing America, the real America, the one of small towns with a one gigantic prison employing 70% of local work force, the one where people have not moved from their small town all their lives to even see a "big city" that is 50 miles away, never mind visit a foreign country, the America where people will tell you to their face that "I am a conservative and voting for McCain", and when you tell them that conservatism used to stand for small government and no foreign wars, and so Republicans are NOT conservative, they give you this look of, how shall I describe it... the retard's look followed by "Wut?".
Ah yes, the real America - where the boyfriend of Bristol Palin, the 17 year old knocked up, now sports the word "Bristol" tattooed on his left ring finger..
That Palin family - pure class.
Well, shit... at least you cannot qualify Palin, her husband and her pregnant daughter as an elitist.
And that is what wins elections in Yoo Ess of Ey.
But AG, what about the title? What is her biggest scandal?
Ah, yes, getting to that my friends.
MSNBC, Tuesday, September 02, 2008 5:08 PM:
Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin today met with the board of directors of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, NBC/NJ has confirmed.
The meeting took place inside Palin's hotel, sources said.
A campaign official would not say who asked for the meeting, but said it was geared towards putting the American Jewish community at ease over her understanding of US-Middle East relations.
"That's obviously going to be an issue," the aide said. "It's not like being the senator from New York, obviously. But these aren't issues that are off her radar."
You see, Palin was such a small player in the world of American politics that she was off the radar of AIPAC and the lets fuck over America for the sake of Israel crowd.
Because the trailer park beauty queen is now big time, the Jewish leadership wasted no time to meet with her and show her how American "democracy" really works.
Palin, joined by Sen. Joe Lieberman, expressed her "heartfelt support for Israel" and spoke of the threats it faces from Iran and others, the campaign official said.
"We had a good productive discussion on the importance of the U.S.-Israel relationship, and we were pleased that Gov. Palin expressed her deep, personal, and lifelong commitment to the safety and well-being of Israel," AIPAC spokesman Josh Block said.
Super - if you haven't read my blog, or if you get your news only from the mainstream media you might not realize this fact of American politics: that the chief prerequisite of being a politician in America on a national stage is to swear fealty to Israel, and work on the behalf of its powerful lobby in the USA, AIPAC (and other organizations) because of the financial resources and political clout the Lobby has.
So there you have it - she was forced to meet with AIPAC Zionists, who represent the interests of Israel (well, that is a bit misleading - they represent the interests of the LIKUD party in Israel, their equivalent of our beloved GOP, and don't really represent the Israeli man on the street).
She was forced to swear loyalty to Israel, like every politician before her in America in modern times.
And one of the funniest things to come out of this treason (don't worry, they all serve AIPAC first and America second - Obama , and then Howard Berman, and Clinton).
In fact, having Israel in one's heart is THE prerequisite for being a president - witness Obama having Israel in his errr heart.
Obama, Reid, Pelosi, Bush, etc etc - look for my articles on the right hand side of the blog in the Neocons and Israeli Lobby in the USA column and educate yourself)?
Back to the topic.
The funniest thing, then?
It is perhaps this:
Voters should feel confident in Sarah Palin support of Israel, Republican Jewish leaders and other GOP figures argued on Tuesday. Not because of the Alaska Governor's policy statements, a proclaimed understanding of the Middle East, or relationships with regional leaders. But because she keeps a small Israeli flag in the corner of her office window.
Can you imagine this bullshit?
Can you see a self avowed, evangelical christian crazy, from trailer park Alaska, who is as close as trailer trash get to Washington (other than as McDonald's workers or "sanitation engineers" working in the halls) - keeping an Israeli flag in her office?
For a second there I was worried that she might have kept an American flag in her office. Thank goodness, even when she was dating polar bears and howling at the moon while drunk off her mind, and popping out babies left and right, even then she realized the importance of Israel and that Israel comes first and America a distant second for all American politicians.
Maybe she ain't as stupid as she looks?
And maybe the Israeli flag was planted by her handlers for the benefit of the biggest, baddest lobby in American politics?
"I think it is extremely telling," said Matt Brooks, executive director of the Republican Jewish Coalition, "that if you are looking to get some insights into how people think, we came across a video of an interview that was done in Alaska, some sort of outdoors program. Some guy interviewing her as she was climbing up glaciers or something like that. Part of the interview took place in the governor's office in Juneau. What was really telling is that in one point in the interview there was a close up of her and you can see over her shoulder there was a flag of Israel in her window. I can assure all of you that is not done to appease the extraordinarily large Jewish community in Juneau. The fact that she has chosen to keep a flag of Israel on her wall tells her she has Israel in her heart."
She has an Israeli flag in her window in Alaska (there are NO Jews in Alaska - can't say I blame them) and yet.... she has an Israeli flag. Go figure, right?
And she has Israel in her heart.
This is exactly what America needs more of.
More treason in Washington.
I recommend you read this this article first - start from there and if you think of yourself as an American patriot, research research research. Don't take my word for it - go to google, heck, go to AIPAC's own web page:
As America's leading pro-Israel lobby, AIPAC works with both Democratic and Republican political leaders to enact public policy that strengthens the vital U.S.-Israel relationship. With the support of its members nationwide, AIPAC has worked with Congress and the Executive Branch on numerous critical initiatives -- from securing vital foreign aid for Israel to stopping Iran's illicit nuclear program.
Don't take my word for the power of this Lobby.
Buy The Israel Lobby and U.S. Foreign Policy .
Read Phillip Weiss.
Read Richard Silverstein.
Open your eyes, America.
