Sarah Palin Says She Is Considering Run For Alaska - 07/09/13 10:38 PM

Palin & Hannity


Foaming at the mouth libs in 3… 2… 1.

HANNITY: ‘There’s been talk you might run for senator in Alaska, have you considered that at all?’

PALIN: ‘I’ve considered it because people have requested me considering it. But I’m still waiting to see what the lineup will be’….’Mark Begich has got to be replaced’… ‘Any American would do anything they could to help the cause.’

HT: Right Pundit

Well, it's not our election. If Alaskans want to elect a quitter, they're more than welcome to it. How does that phrase go? "People get the government they deserve"... or something like that.

Re: Sarah Palin Says She Is Considering Run For Alaska - 07/10/13 05:02 PM

The idea of Sarah Palin & Joe Miller trying to out-Teatard one another in a primary--to say nothing of Lt. Gov. Treadwell--makes me SO HAPPY. I'm talking days on end of entertainment. Polls show Palin with a lead over Miller & Treadwell in a primary situation.

I'm not sure how the general would turn out. Begich benefited greatly from the Ted Stevens scandal--Stevens would have held that seat forever, were it not for his conviction (ultimately set aside, but he died shortly after in a plane crash). He's not hugely popular, but if he has a good enough turnout in "urban" areas like Anchorage and ... well, Anchorage ... and can get enough Native support, he could retain the seat. Tough to say, though, because Alaska signed on to the VRA challenge that resulted in the recent Supreme Court decision, and it's looking like Alaska is trying to further disenfranchise Native populations. This could hurt voting overall, and particularly moderate/liberal candidates. Ted Stevens was relatively moderate by today's standards.

All I know is, no crying from this lib. Bring it on--I'm going to have a lot of fun if it happens!

I don't think it will, suspecting it's just another Sarah "look at me!" moment. It will also invite a closer look at her residency which most Alaskans know is sporadic these days, the Palins preferring Arizona to Wasilla.

If you are comparing what Those two did to a man having an affair you would have to thank Bill Clinton for opening the door.

Oh wait Clinton broke the law by committing perjury. Obviously not a big deal to Democrats.

Sanford didn't just have an affair. He lied about his whereabouts, misused taxpayer funds, and in the years subsequent displayed all kinds of nutter behavior toward his ex-wife.

I think it's SO great that he reminded us that Baby Jesus forgives EVERYONE! That means liberals who tweet photos of their ween and governors who love prostitutes (JUST LIKE JESUS TOLD US TO!).

And Clinton perjured himself. So again, if you want to start the blame you should start with him.

Spitzer and Wiener just keep the traditions going.

Maybe the fact that Sheldon Silver is still in office after stealing taxpayer funds to bribe victims to be quiet is even worse.

But does anyone have any actual thoughts on this story? Is it simply a headline grab? Does Sarah have actual intentions to run? Questions about her residency have been swirling since her failed VP bid, and only increased since then--this will be a major issues for Alaskans, particularly if she's collecting a PFD. How will she and Miller square off, particularly since she threw her weight behind him in his bid to unseat Murkowski?

I mean, we could actually discuss this topic guys. For serious.

Sounds pretty self-explanatory. And it wasn't "in" the post I asked for an actual response, it was in the second post, quoting the first.

And I was insulting THEM--though I don't think calling them what they are is an insult (I don't get insulted when I get called a "libtard"--I'm liberal. The tard part never bothers me, I think it's funny), not any of YOU. That's all you guys do--scream at each other. Someone posts a topic, then you all start arguing about the dumbest stuff and making personal insults.

Let's spend ten pages talking about nothing but having the same stupid arguments over discharge papers and WHO HAD SEXYTIMES IN OFFICE FIRST and ARGLEBARGLE.

SO, topic discussion. Let's try to reset this.

Not that I think it will work.

Contrary to Timbo's belief, Palin winning the R nomination for Begich's seat does not guarantee Begich (or another Dem) a win. Alaska is conservative/libertarian and they don't really love Begich. His voting record is uneven--in favor of drilling ANWR (as are most Alaskans), against gun control, in favor of immigration bill, against UN arms treaty, for VAW reauthorization (complicated in Alaska b/c of Native issues vis-a-vis sovereignty), moderate on pro-choice issues, pro-health care, voted to repeal DADT--so it's a mixed bag for voters who are disinclined to vote for a name with a "D" after it.

I'm very curious as to how Palin would do, particularly in the primary phase. I would like to see how she would differentiate herself from Joe Miller, specifically, since she supported him the first time around and versus the current Lt. Gov. who is far more mainstream than Miller. It would be a hell of a primary, but I think Treadwell would do best against Begich. No baggage of being a quitter/grifter (Palin) or a thief (Miller), and both Palin and Miller have had residency questions put Alaskans on their guard. It's especially dicey--residency--because if you collect a PFD you have to sign legal forms declaring you have lived in the state for an entire calendar year, save specific allowable absences. People are convicted of PFD fraud if they are caught lying, living elsewhere.

Sounds pretty self-explanatory. And it wasn't "in" the post I asked for an actual response, it was in the second post, quoting the first.

And I was insulting THEM--though I don't think calling them what they are is an insult (I don't get insulted when I get called a "libtard"--I'm liberal. The tard part never bothers me, I think it's funny), not any of YOU. That's all you guys do--scream at each other. Someone posts a topic, then you all start arguing about the dumbest stuff and making personal insults.

Let's spend ten pages talking about nothing but having the same stupid arguments over discharge papers and WHO HAD SEXYTIMES IN OFFICE FIRST and ARGLEBARGLE.

Instead of actual ideas.

The forum used to be awesome. Sadz.

I know look at society and how its devolving right before our eyes. A good example would be Detroit...40 years of liberalism, put a stain on that once great city! The Detroit refugees are leave at a rate of about 1 person every 20 minuets. The clean up is going to cost the tax payers billions of dollars. Don't worry about, we'll make my great grand kids pay for that.

I know it get real old!

But the funny part about the whole military discharge paper issue thing is. I got an idiot to post his discharge papers and I'm the one who gets called stupid. \:\/ If they think I'm posting my paper on the forum ...I want what ever they're smoking.

What gagging sound are you talking about!? \:o PT!

Nice retort... pretty lame actually.

It does beg the question though... what are you doing here then?

Sweet baby Jesus there were some things in there.

I'm not sure Detroit was "destroyed by liberalism" but it's exciting to see something other than ARGLEBARGLE out of you. Yay! Words!

I am a fan of argle bargle, though. It's mostly why I'm hoping $exy $arah runs. Her + Miller=Argle Bargle heaven.

I was being ironic. While Alaska clearly has a strong Tea Party ideology, and obviously Palin could put a considerable fight. There are equally great numbers of Alaskans who've been deeply screwed by her politics and are now highly p!ssed. She made several rabid enemies of some very powerful officials in the state.

While there will always be a special type of Palin devotee, ready to walk over the coals for her reactionary drift, there can be no understating how detrimental her admittance into national politics, has harmed the the GOP both in terms of image in general and Republican voter turn out, specifically.

I have NO doubt that Palin winning a battle in Alaska, WILL guarantee that the GOP loses the war. The party has completely dismantled it's reputation with centrist voters by hitching their wagon to these fringe Randian ideologies.

Of course, time will tell, but I see no indications suggesting that the party has learned anything from the last two national election beatings. On the contrary, they've simply doubled down on the venomous rhetoric and now seem poised to run a new round of smear and disinformation.

You were being ironic? How so? I don't see the irony if you think, in the long run, it's a win for Dems either way.

Irony doesn't translate well online. And another R in the Senate isn't a win in the long run for Dems.

Truly a sad state of affairs when one party is happy because their party is slightly less vile than the other. Although I think a majority of Alaskans would be happy to have her back, I don't think she would be doing the Repubs any good.

She is the typical caricature of the extreme right-wing. Lump her in with Shumer, Pelosi, McCain, McConnell, and all of the other politicians-turned-celebrity we have today.

If you truly believe there is anything even approaching parity between the two parties, in terms of execrable behavior, then I would be concerned that you don't have a clear picture of modern Republican politics OR you don't have a proper understanding of the definition of the word 'vile'.

You hold to that thought and keep that banner high as you swirl down the toilet with the rest of the country. There is nothing any Democrat, Republican, Independent, Libertarian, Green candidate, or other is going to do save this country (as we know it) at this point. It may not be this decade or next, but I have no doubt it will be in my lifetime. It WILL all work out in the end, but it is going to awfully ugly getting there.

Governments/societies invariably change, it's a universal constant. What we are today, differs dramatically from what we were ten years ago, and so on.

Shy of a crystal ball, it's impossible to know what lay ahead.
