Can you write like Sarah Palin?

I wish this would happen.

Or rather, can you write like Sarah Palin’s ghostwriter?

Here are some sample sentences from her new book:

“As the soles of my shoes hit the soft ground, I pushed past the tall cottonwood trees in a euphoric cadence, and meandered through willow branches that the moose munched on.”

or,

“I breathed in an autumn bouquet that combined everything small-town America with rugged splashes of the Last Frontier.”

Slate characterizes her style as having “multiple references to local flora and fauna, heavy use of PSAT vocabulary, slightly defensive tone, and difficult-to-parse meaning.” They even created a pretty funny index for the book. Sample entries:

food, Alaskan
________halibut tacos, 1
________reindeer sausage 1
________caribou lasagna, 218

They’re also having a contest to see who can write the most Palinesque sentence. Contest details here.

If you’re new to Pageslap, welcome!

    My main question is whether Sarah Palin will ever read the book she didn’t write.

    • Jim Hagen says:

      Katie Couric: How many books have you read that you didn’t write?

      SP: All of them.

      • ohashleyyy says:

        Hahaha I seen that. And Katie Couric, says… “can you name any titles”

        And palin says “Just a wide variety, so many”

        And she explained to Oprah that she was only answering that way because she was mad at Couric’s “badgering” haha. Man, I think we dodged a bullet there, despite my support of John McCain.

  2. >_<’ That picture almost fooled me.

    The book reminds me of creative writing 101 when everyone was encourage to be descriptive as possible. The teacher always stressed that any written piece has room for improvement which always translated to more colorful words to describe the corner vase in a room while the characters are talking.

    Oscar Wilde on Sarah Palin

    Sigh. And I’ll never do those dance moves.

    First and foremost, I laughed my ass off at your image of Palin and Obama dancing. What I wouldn’t give to score tickets to sit in a live studio audience for that one! Second, there’s nothing I’d like to do less than read Palin’s book. Nothing. :)

    • Might be true. To read it backwards would probably be more enlightening.

    • Silverwolf1954 says:

      Then you are an ignorant pig!

      • Whoever – or whatever it is – has the right to express an opinion.

        “People that buy her book aren’t expecting to
        read Dickens or Melville or Bronte, they just
        want to know her story.”
        The point with this article is just that: if she just wants to write her story [whether it was really her or a ghost-something], couldn’t she do it in straightforward, direct fashion?

        Plus, you have all rights to defend Palin and go political on this one – it’s your right, of course – but please do it with decency. I know that nowadays respect is almost reduced to an artform, especially virtually, but let’s be decent.

        The blog author respects us enough to not even moderate beforehand what we write.

  6. harry elliott says:

    People that buy her book aren’t expecting to read Dickens or Melville or Bronte, they just want to know her story. Why did the Associated Press assign 11 fact checkers to her book and NONE on either of Barrack Obama’s books?

    Those that would buy her book would never read Maureen Dowd, Frank Rich, Nicholas Kristoff, Paul Krugman, Joe Klein, or Jon Meacham. Nor would they watch Keith Olberman or Rachel Madow or pay to see a Michael Moore movie. Besides despising her they all have one thing in common. They are rich, mostly Ivy League educated, live on the Upper West Side and can’t wait to go to the Hamptons on weekends to be with their friends. They all want to be the Kennedy’s when they grow up, and their vision of what America SHOULD BE (Nancy Pelosi’s Harry Reid, and Barney Frank, etc.) is only shared by ONE IN FIVE Americans.

    There are a lot of us from Middle America, that didn’t go to Harvard, finished a State School later in life, work in a Blue Collar profession or married someone who does, and would support anyone in their family that chose to have a child UNCONDITIONALLY. Many more of us have worked for decades, have EARNED a pension, paid in to Social Security and Medicare and have been rewarded with Health Care plans for life. We view Sarah Palin as ONE OF US.

    In my 61 years on the planet I can say that the two best Presidents of my lifetime were Harry Truman, and Ronald Reagan. Truman never went to college and Reagan went to Wheaton College (where?). Both had populist appeal and common sense. True, in her VP campaign it was evident that she lacked polish and savvy, but she did have POPULIST APPEAL. Right now WE deserve a voice. We are willing to share our blessings and to the most successful of us, our wealth. We are not in favor of Legislation that tells us HOW IT WILL BE REDISRIBUTED.

    But then again if I have to explain it to you, you will NEVER get it.

    • sauerkraut says:

      Oh Harry. tsk, tsk.

      She has a history of telling untruths. And a number of the targets in the book which she did not write have come forward to dispute what has been trotted out as facts in the book. If I have to explain that to you then you will NEVER get it.

      Too bad about Palin being one of you. If that’s true, then you’ve lived a very pathetic life.

    • Silverwolf1954 says:

      Congratulations Harry. I understand what you said

        wow, silverwolf. I feel honored to be the recipient of your topless fawning.

    • MOInkslinger says:

      Harry Truman was a common man and did a good job. Palin has charm and charisma and if that is all it took to be President then she would be a shoe-in. Her ego and her lies will bring her down before she the opportunity to bring down this country. She talks the talk, but her record does not show any follow through on her talk. When people become less interested in looking up her skirt and start to look up her record, they will the real Sarah Palin is not that attractive.

      • bob says:

        Replace Palin with Obama in your comment, and you have got a fact, except that unfortunately, he was elected President only on charisma, and too many empty promises.

        When people become less interested in kissing Obama’s ass and start to look at his record, they will see that the real Barack Obama is not that attractive.

      • sauerkraut says:

        Palin will never rise to the level of Obama, bob. She’s got legs and lies, and that’s about it.

      • Teen Rambler says:

        If you honestly think that Obama is better than Palin, think again sauerkraut. He has accomplished nothing. He has charisma but, dare I say it, no brains. He has charm and appeal, but no real plans. He has a body but no mind. He can’t even speak (oh, unless he has a teleprompter). I am pained to listen to him speak for the amount of “ums” he utilizes are uncanny. (May I also point out that such a word is below PSAT level vocabulary.)

      • sauerkraut says:

        You complain about Obama using “um” in his public speeches (common habit among many public speakers) but you believe Palin’s disjointed ramblings are better? And you believe Palin’s multi-college path to a journalism degree is superior to Obama’s degrees from Columbia and Harvard Law School?

        Now if that’s not dumb, nothing ever will be.

      • AKOne says:

        Ignorance abounds concerning Palin’s record! Get off your dead ass and do some fact checking and then you will know that most of the posts are BS! MORONS!!

    • I have worked blue collar all of my life, I have earned my Social Security and Medicare, and Sarah Palin most certainly is NOT a voice for me. She does not represent me, she does not speak for me, she does absolutely nothing for me. I do not view her as a leader, I view her as an opportunist who will say anything to get what she wants, and that does not include what is best for me or any other “regular” American.

      Please, please, do not lump the “Everyday American” in with the Pro=Palins. There are millions of us who voted for Obama, believe in what he is doing for the country, and cannot stand Palin and her hate spewing in the name of Christ, her anti women’s civil rights, and her non-stance on anything but empty words. What is behind the “common sense” values she espouses? Nothing! Just words words words. And turning a buck for herself in any way she can. Do you feel she is looking out for your best interests when she cannot even be bothered to sign everybody’s book who stood in line in Michigan and Indiana, only to be left in the cold with a purchased, unsigned book? Did she go back and take care of those “average, everyday folks” who forked over their hard earned money for a signature and got nothing?

      Me. Elliot, stop repeating it. We DO get it. You are out of touch with the rest of middle America. We despise her, and there are actual numbers to back that up. Do not speak for us.

        Thank you for voicing something that finally makes since to me. Where anyone could get the idea that only the rich support Obama, I haven’t got a clue! You are all fooling yourselves.

        Please don’t forget that the messes that our current, Democratic president is now cleaning up are those left behind by the eight years of a Republican regime.

        I don’t agree with everything ANY president says or does and if any of you do, I am sorry for you because you have ceased to think for yourselves.

        Let’s remember that our nation was founded because of diversity. The reason we have two parties (in my opinion it should be more) is so that we — the people — maintain the ability to choose one way or the other. Within that system is a built-in mechanism of majority rules. That is what keeps this nation democratic — the right to disagree! Otherwise we could easily see ourselves as a monarchy.

        Disagreement, (unless we are talking about children, of course) does not have to include rudeness or calling names. So can we all please grow up and learn to disagree agreeably?

        Everyone is entitled to an opinion.

        in today’s world, we have got to learn to accommodate each others opinion. So Former Governor Sarah Palin has a right, just as everyone else to express her own opinion. Can someone send me her book?

        In Kenya FREEDOM is coming. Democracy is taking root. We are doing t through CYCA’s Kenya Democracy Project(KDP), where we hold Roundtables on topical issues. Currently, we are engaging the citizens on the Constitution Draft courtesy of Baraza La Katiba Program.

      • sauer kraut says:

        It’s not because she talks funny or with a phony accent. It’s because there’s very little upside to an elected Palin. Although the quitting was very enjoyable to many Alaskans.

        Funny how the palinistas constantly go on the attack in defense of their little separatist goddess but they can never say anything positive about her. Like… anyone know the specifics of her policy positions? Anyone really know the deal with the ethics complaints filed against her (did you know that the most costly of those was the one she filed against herself?) Do any of the Palin supporters really know anything about her?

      AROD makes 70K an at bat. What’s your point? I was talking about MY VISION of Middle America. The fact remains that only 20% of America is Liberal yet they want ALL the power.

      I would rather have Sarah Palin as a friend, neighbor, coworker, boss, or girlfriend than Nancy Pelosi or Hillary Clinton any day, and it’s not just her LOOKS that I find attractive.

      • sauerkraut says:

        You don’t get it, Harry. Using her history as half-governor of Alaska, her vision of “middle america” is not any American’s vision for any part of America. Indeed, her close affiliation with a political separatist party shows the opposite of anything pro-American.

        She’s not you and you are not her, Harry.

        She’s not even a poor representation of the eggman.

      • I Know Better says:

        Harry – You have got to be kidding. You think only 20% of the US is liberal? What happened to your 80% on election day? Maybe you were busy at the book burning rally…

        And you like to say that Obama has accomplished nothing… Well, at least he hasn’t decide to bail out of the job when the heat got turned up.

        Our Healthcare system sucks. People like you are going to the wall and giving up an entire lifes worth of savings just to have an operation.

        We are still in a War that was brought on us by Morons like you that think you can sink your head in the sand and pluck our future from Arab hands… Did we get those weapons of mass destruction? Did we get them Alkida boys and girls that Saddam was training… Oh wait, it is now fact that this was another pile of crap… Sorry, that would be called manure in your neck of the woods.

        We need real leadership in this country and it’s not going to come out of our chuches and people that like to yank books out of the library that don’t agree with the point of view of your pastor.

        USA is the world leader, it’s a tough job. You have to stand up and fight for every little change because the opposition will fight you for the sake of fighting you.

        Is Obama perfect? Hell no…. But if I compare the qualities of our leader with that silly twit from Alaska, he gets my vote every time.

        The scuttlebutt going around is that she is building up her presence so she can run against Obama in 2012…. I sure hope so. Then we can have a democrat in office for another 4 years and try and untangle the mess our country was left in my the Bush / Cheney go screw your self we want all your money team.

        If you think what I said is wrong, just look at the price of oil before they entered office and what happened to it as soon as they left.

        If she is your best hope for our future, if you can’t field someone that has a brain and can manage to tell the truth, if you can’t find someone that is not willing to fire anyone just because they think differently than you do, then you really don’t have the best interest of our children in mind.

        God Have Mercy On Us if this is what you really want for all of us.

      • harry elliott says:

        Recent Harris and Rasmissen polls show
        that only 20% of the VOTING population
        CONSIDER themselves Liberal.
        Certainly all those columnists, reporters
        commentators, film makers and legislators
        that I mentioned in my recent post are
        considere LIBERAL.

        Obama ran a brilliant campaign, but he
        POSED as more of a centrist. Now that
        it is apparant that his policies are
        Liberral his poll numbers have fallen
        to under 50% in approval ratings.
        Congress on the other hand which is
        being RUN by Liberals have an approval
        rating in the low 20’s.

        For saying that I think Ms. Palin has
        an INTERESTING story to tell wnd
        has populist appeal which MANY including
        me can relate to, and we don’t subscribe
        to the Liberal agenda I have been attacked and I am fighting back.

        What are you going to do create the
        “thought police” and anybody that
        thinks Sarah Palin is OK make
        us wear a button that says “I am
        stupid, and I have a pathetic life”?

        Also Obama, Pelosi, Reid Frank, etc
        OWN the economy now. Tell one of the
        10.2% and climbing unemployed that
        they have Bush and Ceney to thank
        for their situation.

        And finally I Know Better, what has this
        president and this Congress done and
        said to save Social Security and
        Medicare which by all CBO projections
        will be going bankrupt in the next
        10 years PRECISELY when we 30 million
        baby boomers will be collecting it?
        How about proposing 500B in cuts?

        The “pull the plug” on grandma metaphor
        is just the tipping point of how the
        Democrats are losing the support of
        Seniors and Baby Boomers. Polls don’t
        lie.

    • Cjay says:

      Ok, though your user name is a bit on the arrogant side, (I Know Better), I really agree with the majority of what you said. And I want to give you the advantage on the comment about church-goers, but I just can’t let that one slide totally.

      I am a Christian and announce that proudly on this forum. But I want you to know that the name Christian is not intended to be synonymous with book-burners, Muslim-haters, or radicals of any kind. Not everyone who goes to church is like the preachers you hear on TV begging for money, or those who most often make the evening news.

      Christians are meant to be “Christ-like”. That means loving, forgiving, accepting of others, non-judgemental, and loyal to the cause of serving God. Every single one of us fails at that. So please, please don’t judge all of Christianity by the poor examples we set.

      Arrogantly yours,

    “Which book? Oh, that one. Yes I wrote it, but if there are any lies in it, they were put in there by those nasty people who hate to see a rogue fighter, such as me, actually having complete thoughts and not just writing about moose pie recipes, but mine is a really, really good one, you betcha.”

  11. Steve says:

    First, please get that man’s face away from our Sarah.

    Second, hollering out that Palin has a ghostwriter avoids idiot liberals from having to defend the failures of their own President who now sits with a stunning 48% approval rating (down even faster than Carter in his 1st year).

    “The Sarah” has never gone away. As hard as liberals have tried to say “she’s a hasbeen, she’s over!” but then say “oh please nominate her in 2012 because it will be easy to beat her!” and portray themselves as Sally Field did in the movie about the crazy girl, “Sybil”, it turns out that “dope” Sarah Palin duped you. And she duped you better than any of you have been able to dupe her.

    A few encouraging facts:

    Like Reagan, Palin did not attend an Ivy League School.

    Like Reagan, Palin spent all her pre-elected office time in the United States. In fact, Reagan was not allowed to go overseas to fight because of a medical condition.

    Like Reagan, everyone says Palin is “stupid” or a “dope.”

    Like Reagan, Palin lost elections before what could be a landslide victory.

    And for good measure, Palin has 5 babies under one wedlock and stayed married to one man through it all – Heaven forbid, liberal feminists!

    In a nutshell, Obama is tanking. If I were you, I’d spend more time convincing my fellow man why liberal policies are a good thing. Because if you cannot do any better than this by 2012, I promise you – she’ll win in a massive landslide.

    • sauerkraut says:

      You forgot one, Birther Steve.

      Unlike Reagan, Palin cannot string more than 3 words together into a comprehendible sentence.

      And you are wrong on one critical point, too. Palin is not a “has been;” she is true red “never was.”

      The bittertwitterquitter quit on the people of her state. She needs to stay in that status instead of working overtime to get Americans jumping at each other’s throats.

      • Steve says:

        “Unlike Reagan, Palin cannot string more than 3 words together into a comprehendible sentence.”

        Yet, she wrote a 400-page book? If you really want people to pay attention to you, you HAVE to be more substantial and realistic than that.

        Plus, during the pre-Reagan era, liberals like you would never have granted Reagan with the acknowledgment of conherence, which proves my point about Palin.

        That “never was” has you seething with anger for a reason. As I said, you were duped by the dope.

        She resigned as Governor….and again, this was a brilliant move and your anger toward the following facts makes it all worth it for me:

        A.) Dumb liberals wasted millions of taxpayer dollars to file 18 ethics charges against her in one year….of which she was cleared on everyone of them.

        B.) They weren’t attacking “The Governor of Alaska” – they were attacking “Sarah Palin.”

        C.) If Sarah would have used the media outlet to respond to these stupid ethics complaints and this utter waste of taxpayer money, they would have filed a 19th ethics charge against her.

        D.) She found a very capable replacement.

        Result: Alaska has an excellent Governor as they did before, Sarah Palin has more freedom to work harder for Americans, and liberals have been disempowered from using state money to officially attack her. Again, you were all duped by the dope.

        So now, you’re left with “boohoo, she’s a quitter!” and miraculously embarrass yourself by proclaiming her a “never was!” in the same blather-filled post.

        Hold onto it, your President is tanking so I know you need something to help ease the pain.

      • jammer5 says:

        Well, Steve, Sarah didn’t write the book: she ghost wrote it. A big difference, but one I doubt you have the capacity to understand.

        Your points: A) Your calling anyone who doesn’t believe what you do “Dumb liberals” only shows you to be unable to understand politics period. Check again: not all the ethics charges were brought by “Dumb Liberals.”

        B) Yes, they were attacking the ethics violations of one Sarah Palin, Governor of Alaska. It’s what is supposed to kepp politics on an honest and above board level. To not bring up suspected ethics violations is called business as usual, and leads to corrupt politicians. Incidentally, the state did find she abused her power in firing the state trooper.

        C) She did, and is using the media to whine about anyone who ever a) worked for her, b)interviewed her and c) choose her as a running mate.

        D) She quit her job and Alaska found a replacement. As a non-government person, after she quit, she had no say in who her replacement would be.

        Bottom line, Steve, is Sarah could have written a book, or had written for her, that spelled out specific stands on any number of issues. Instead, she wrote a whiners diary in which she pulled her victims card way too many times, and is still pulling it.

        Anyone with any intelligence is starting to see, or has already seen, she has no intellect, no policy and no followers but those who are blinded by nothing more than her charisma.

      • sauerkraut says:

        Thanks, Jammer. Betcha Steve will either not respond or respond in the same ad hominem vein as his buddy Silverwolf, above.

        Sarah Palin ain’t all that. Nor are her statements which are too often proven false by real facts. She coulda been something… but she never was.

    Sauerkraut, can’t you argue without being rude, you don’t know a damn thing about Harry to insult him like that. Don’t you think Palin quit because she couldn’t have an influence or run for anything way up in Alaska? The move to quit was really a logistical move to be more involved, both geographically and in regard to media coverage.

    • sauerkraut says:

      Jim, I’ve been paying attention.

      Sarah Palin didn’t quit because she wanted to have more influence but because 1) she couldn’t stand the heat, and 2) there was megabucks to be made by “writing” a book. There was nothing “logistical” or policy related in her quitting. She cut and ran… into what she hopes is fame and fortune.

      Oh, and it’s not about Harry. Except for his suggestion that Obama is not American. That makes Harry a birther.

      • harry elliott says:

        Where did I say anything about Obama not being American or anything of that nature? Birther? The only comment I made about birth was her decision to UNCONDITIONALLY love and support her illegitemate granddaughter.

        “abortions should be legal, safe, affordable, available to everyone and RARE” Hilary Clinton Two million a year, rare? Yeah right I’m a birther.

        Methinks you PROJECT and SPIN too much.

      • sauerkraut says:

        Are you having trouble following along, harry? Or are you also using the “steve” moniker to respond to posts? And do you have a problem understanding the birther issue? Hint: it has nothing to do with abortion.

        Yes, you give proof positive that Palin’s supporters are every bit as stupid as is she.

  14. Steven Harris says:

    Were the liberals who wanted to abolish slavery dumb? And technically Obama is everyone;s president, whether they voted for him or not, because that’s how democracy works. The way to change presidents is not to bitch about things on blogs and forums but to wait until the next election and vote. Maybe even get involved in canvassing for a senator or a presidential candidate you would like to hold office.

    • Travis says:

      Um….I just have to comment on one thing. It was the Conservatives that abolished slavery. The Liberals didn’t get behind Civil Rights till Kennedy. At that point, something happened, and the two sides flipped on Civil Rights ideals. Almost every other point has stayed the same between the two.

      Historically, the South was Democratic Liberal, and the north Republican Conservative. Kennedy saw the votes of the minorities, and found a way to take them. McCarthy helped Kennedy a lot on that one.

      • rockybutte says:

        Travis, Please read history before you post misinformation. You will find that the southern part of the USA was referred to as the “Solid South” and was controlled by segregationists in the Democratic party from the mid-19th century until the presidential election of 1964 when the region shifted to the Republican party. This shift was prompted by the northern Democrats embracing of civil rights legislation which resulted in the Civil Rights Acts and Voting Rights Acts of 1964 & 1965.

        At the time, many, if not most, of northern Republicans were considered liberal: John Lindsay, Jacob Javits, Mark Hatfield, etc.

        Which McCarthy are you referring to? Joe McCarthy, of red-baiting fame? He died in 1957, 4 years before Kennedy took office. Eugene McCarthy? He ran for president in 1968, 5 years after Kennedy’s assassination.

        in today’s world, we have got to learn to accommodate each others opinion. So Former Governor Sarah Palin has a right, just as everyone else to express her own opinion. Can someone send me her book?

        In Kenya FREEDOM is coming. Democracy is taking root. We are doing t through CYCA’s Kenya Democracy Project(KDP), where we hold Roundtables on topical issues. Currently, we are engaging the citizens on the Constitution Draft courtesy of Baraza La Katiba Program.
        Sarah Palin should come to Kenya to promote her book, we can host her.

        If you are REALLY interested in learning about democracy, please learn from our history and how our nation became strong. Those who speak here about Sarah Palin are correct about her. She is, unfortunately, taking advantage of her 15 minutes of fame and having a difficult time leaving the stage.

  16. Sarah Palin ain’t goin’ to go away. I predict that she’ll give Rush Limbaugh a run for his money as to followers and supporters.

    But she DOES come in a nicer package, doesn’t she?

    To Jammer:

    You must be able to prove that Sarah Palin used a ghost rider before you can convincingly peddle the rumor of such.

    Sorry, liberals really ARE stupid. That’s just a given. I mean, take a look at your opinion rebuttal is with an unsubstantiated rumor put forth by liberals to make Sarah seem irrelevant.

    Meanwhile, President Obama is so terrified of her that he is seeking $500K in donations so her can now put out ads to counter her political points. Not worried about her, eh? http://www.examiner.com/x-10711-Raleigh-Political-Buzz-Examiner~y2009m11d21-President-seeks-500000-for-ads-to-rebut-Palin

    “Yes, they were attacking the ethics violations of one Sarah Palin, Governor of Alaska. It’s what is supposed to kepp politics on an honest and above board level.”

    Right and go across this great land and find me another Governor who endured 18 in one year and won every one of them.

    “Incidentally, the state did find she abused her power in firing the state trooper.”

    No they did not. They found that she allowed her husband to use the Governor’s office to persuade the commissioner’s decision. She did not fire the state trooper, HE STILL HAS HIS JOB. She asked Walt Monegan, the commissioner to change positions within the state because he was mis-managing a budget. But the 1st report and investigation concluded that Palin’s actions were 100% LEGAL and so were the actions of Todd Palin. Palin had a second investigation done which exposed the first for what it was – a word salad seeking to destroy an honest politician. And here you are not even getting the facts right….are you kidding me with this?

    Those did not kill her. They only made her stronger. Of course, your angered by it. I understand.

    “she has no intellect”

    It wasn’t Sarah who claimed we had 57 states, it was Obama.

    It wasn’t Sarah who claimed that FDR gave a speech on TV during the Great Depression, it was Biden.

    If you really want to play this game with me, I can go all day. There’s nothing more fun. :-)

    • sauerkraut says:

      Steve… what, pray tell, is a “ghost rider”? If you intended to ask about a ghost writer, then that’s been proven. Indeed, it’s in the book.

      As for your claim that Palin “won” all 18 violations filed against her, it’s obvious that you either failed to pay attention or did not look at the public record. That’s right: the public record. What does that show?

      Let’s start here:

      1) a republican filed an ethics complaint alleging hiring violations. this was before Palin was selected by McCain. the complaint was sustained. ergo, Palin lost.

      2) Palin filed an ethics complaint against herself in the Troopergate matter. that complaint was not sustained. ergo, Palin lost. However… a separate bi-partisan investigation into the matter by the Alaskan legislature found that Sarah Palin abused her elected position in using state resources to settle a private score.

      There’s more, Steve. Are you man enough to actually look at the public records available with respect to those ethics complaints? Or will you continue to post false statements?

      disclaimer: no anger was used in responding to Steve’s drivel.

      There’s more, Steve. Wanna keep playing?

      • Steve says:

        No, there is no mention of a ghost writer in the book. If, by “ghost writer” you mean and assistant, then that does not qualify. Did the ghost writer make all of things up stated in the book?

        Yes Palin won ALL 18 ethics violations filed against her in the year since she ran for VP. That is another fact. In fact, the stupid one about her wearing an Arctic Cat coat as a Governor was just cleared, too.

        1.) Where is the proof of that?
        2.) She did not “lose” – the report alleged an abuse of power by allowing her to let Todd Palin use the Governor’s office to persuade the firing of Mike Wooten. HE IS STILL EMPLOYED. She was not found guilty of abusing per power in the firing of Walt Monegan. The report specifically stated that asking him to switch positions in state services was not only legal, but was ethical as well. In other words, starving liberals were handed a crummy cardigan sweater in lieu of the October surprise promised to them.

        “Are you man enough to actually look at the public records available with respect to those ethics complaints?”

        We’ve all seen them. They were laughable which is why the millions of taxpayer dollars spent on investigating them are now gone forever and nothing was accomplished.

        See, this is the thing I would think liberals would learn from. They bit off their own hands by abusing that unique system in Alaska set up by Palin herself….which was about the same time she sold the private jet and excused the personal chef….by doing this, Palin removed herself from that lame duck position and is not free to scare the pants off of liberals in Congress and in the White House. Meanwhile, your type who “have the facts” have been disempowered. It blew up in your faces.

        Hey, don’t learn from it. It only makes my job easier.

        But the fact that amidst your lies, Obama’s approval ratings are still tanking faster than any President since 1953 proving that you fibs and distortions aren’t working like you want them to makes this process for me a true hoot.

        You’re getting exactly what you deserve today for supporting such a waste of state resources and money. Of course you don’t mind it, after all, you’re a liberal who wants the government to pay for everything.

        “There’s more, Steve. Wanna keep playing?”

    • jammer5 says:

      Steve, read your own words: “I mean, take a look at your opinion rebuttal is with an unsubstantiated rumor put forth by liberals to make Sarah seem irrelevant.

      Meanwhile, President Obama is so terrified of her that he is seeking $500K in donations so her can now put out ads to counter her political points.”

      If those aren’t palinisms, I don’t know what is. Not only do you seem to have a basic problem with sentence structure, but your basic understanding of what constitutes a sentence leaves your entire IQ in doubt. Which leads me to believe you are indeed and palin puppet, with an intellect to match.

      “Lynn Vincent, Palin’s ghostwriter, has signed a non-disclosure agreement. She has been hard at work on the book for the past few months with …”

      Get it, Steve: Palin didn’t write the book. Lynn Vincent did.

      BTW, you haven’t reproduced, have you? That would be a terrible burden on this country.

      • jammer5 says:

        PS, Steve: the only one who has brought up Obama here is you. This thread is about Palin, not Obama. There are many other blogs you can whine on about Obama, but sticking to the topic seems to be a problem with you. Perhaps you should take a class in reading comprehension, assuming you could qualify for the class.

      • Steve says:

        The only reason why Obama is relevant here is because he himself had a ghost-writer as well….and honestly, conservatives couldn’t care less. Palin had a collaborator. Were the stories in this book authentically Lynn Vincent’s or were they Sarah Palin’s?

        This is the overwhelming point. For months, liberals ran around screaming how she was such a dope. They then overstepped their boundaries by spending way too much in Alaska investigating her for stupid things. In this whole whirlwind, Palin has duped her opposition and turned it around to her advantage. Obama could never be so clever.

        That in and of itself is very telling about the effectiveness of each of them with regard to leadership within movements required to return this country to prosperity.

        When liberals are still talking about her in 2012 screaming “danger danger” you will still be blathering about the irrelevant all while watching your party sink faster than it ever has before.

        Good luck chasing those ambulances.

        Opps! Not quite millions, huh Steve. And that’s Palin’s office estimate, which is probably stacked a bit on the high side to make othwers look bad.

        “The commissioner, Walt Monegan, believed he was terminated over his refusal to dismiss a state trooper who was involved in a contentious divorce with Palin’s sister. Palin cited budgetary disagreements.

        The legislative probe ultimately concluded the governor broke an ethics law that prohibits public officials from using their office for personal gain, although the firing itself was considered lawful since Monegan was an employee who could be dismissed at will.”

        Opps! Looks like they found she did break an ethics law.

        “Alaska has spent nearly $300,000 investigating ethics complaints against Gov. Sarah Palin, who calls the complaints “harassment” against her and expensive for the state to defend.”

        Opps! Last I heard, 300k did not amount to “millions.” Looks like your wrong . . . still.

  19. Steve says:

    “Opps! Not quite millions, huh Steve. And that’s Palin’s office estimate, which is probably stacked a bit on the high side to make othwers look bad.”

    Ahh, I guess you’re right. Afterall, 1.9M is not much to liberals, is it? Say that REALLY LOUDLY to the unemployed and struggling independents you are going to need in the upcoming elections, my friend.

    “The legislative probe ultimately concluded the governor broke an ethics law that prohibits public officials from using their office for personal gain, although the firing itself was considered lawful since Monegan was an employee who could be dismissed at will”

    In other words, “here is your word salad liberals, she broke no laws, and violated no state regulations!” Meanwhile a counter investigation stomps even that contentious word salad out.

    “Opps! Last I heard, 300k did not amount to “millions.” Looks like your wrong . . . still.”

    What’s up with you and “OPP?” So, the best case scenario put it at 300K, the worst case at 1.9M.

    They were all excused, she broke NO LAWS….she was not fined or punished or admonished even. 18 TIMES!?

    Okay, go ahead and justify it for me.

      But let’s look at another straw man since you brought it up: Under your interpretation, anybody accused of wrong doing and found not guilty has been abused by whomever. Never mind the system works.

I will be eligible for Social Security in February. I live in a condo half a block from the beach, still surf and snow board. I have a 58 year old girl friend taht wears a Brazillian bikini and could pose for Playboy. I have many friends that are African American, and gay.

        I am Conservative and Christtian because that is the life that WORKS FOR ME. When I attend church services and the sermon is about sinners and sins I immediately leave.

      • sauerkraut says:

        And last time I looked, “she’s just like me Sarah Palin” has spent nearly all of her working life collecting her paycheck from the taxpayer. Which means she never paid into social security, medicare or medicaid, and… get this as it’s something she has lied about: she has never been without some form of healthcare insurance because the State of Alaska provides healthcare to those who have native bloodlines (The Dud’s grandmother was native). She gets her healthcare for free!!

        Good for you having a girlfriend. Every man ought to have one. But, being the good, church-service leaving christian you claim to be, do you practice abstinence?

      • harry elliott says:

        Now you want to make my sex life an issue? The Clinton’s never earned a paycheck outside of government either. What’s your point? Unlike other elected officials and Liberal pundants that could just write a check for QUALITY healthcare at places like Sloan Kettering, Ms Palin doesn’t begrudge that I can have the same quality that only the rich in the so-called civilized world has.

        As far as the Dud’s grandmother being native. Now racial bloodlines are an issue? Gee, I thought it was only the neocons that made those associations.

        I can handle your Liberal views, and understand why you utterly despise her. It’s when you try to marginalize my way of thinking as RADICAL is when I come out swinging.

        I am still a registered Democrat that didn’t abandon my party, they abandoned me. In the early eighties I applied for a low interest first time home buyers loan, and was turned down because I made $1000 too much, even though I was going to school and supporting a wife and two children. The next year I changed jobs for the pension (which I have today, and the benefits) I took a 10K cut in pay, but this later paid off. I applied for the loan and was told they were no longer vailable. Who did I turn to? My Republican relatives with money, who loaned me the down payment and helped me till I got good raises. STRIKE ONE

        In 2000 my twenty year marriage ended. I had to give up my house, pay alimony and child support, but got to keep my pension. Again, it was my Republican relatives that allowed me to stay with them and save money and keep my family stable untill I got on my feet. You see there are no social programs availbale for Caucasion, middle aged men that are taken to the cleaners and can only afford a room. STRIKE TWO

        Last year my daughter tried to get my 4 1/2 year old grand daughter into a pre school program. Even though she is a Single mother (father way behind on child support) she was told that she made a few thousand too much and wasn’t eligible. Guess who helps her with daycare and baby sitting? You got it. Her Republican relatives. STRIKE THREE

        The Democrats HAD my support for several elections. Unlike you my so called pathetic life has taught me to look at things through different prisms and right now the Liberal agenda and philosophy is not attractive to me. and for good reason

  21. Steve says:

    “But let’s look at another straw man since you brought it up: Under your interpretation, anybody accused of wrong doing and found not guilty has been abused by whomever. Never mind the system works.”

    Not at all. But when it is for things like having a tanning bed in your home or having a phony ethics charge filed against you by a fake-woman from England, or being accused of ethics violation for wearing a name brand sports jacket in an interview when it is freezing outside and you’re merely trying to stay warm. Then, it is done 18 times in less than a year….yes that is an abuse.

    And by the way, no other state in the union has such easy access to filing ethics complaints. Again, it was Sarah Palin who made that the law. That kind of attempt at transparency should win one a round of applause but winds up explaining to Americans why it is virtually impossible to try and make nice with the left. No other state has laws that transparent and no other governor tried to do that.

    The sad thing is, Palin does indeed have a clear record of bipartisanship in Alaska going after both Republicans and Democrats. She tackled big oil giants against the wishes of Wall Street Republicans and pushes to utilize our sources here at home to provide jobs and less indpendence on foreign sources.

    But because she is personally pro-life and very attractive, the left would engage so energetically to throw that kind of decency and bipartisanship out.

    And with all your efforts, Obama and Pelosi are still failing and declining in popularity everyday.

    Before responding, why don’t you take a few moments and think clearly about that? Clearly, extreme politics are divisive….and liberal attacks on Palin are simply that.

    The independents you will need someday to think “hey, liberalism isn’t all that bad” bear opinions which matter.

    Calling her a dope so far hasn’t kept her down. Nor has filing numerous ethics complaints. In fact, these actions only grow her into a more viable option.

    Knowing this, seeing these results….why are you still stuck on this kind of tact?

    • bob says:

      Agree with you 100% Steve.

    • sauerkraut says:

      “Clearly, extreme politics are divisive….and liberal attacks on Palin are simply that.”

      Extreme politics to the point of vindictiveness is what Palin practices daily, and you, unfortunately, have learned well at her knee. Too bad her book is less literature but too much 7th grade “getting-back-at-those-who-slighted-me” mean girlishness.

      Your responses, Steve, have yet to be anything but empty rhetoric. Your comment that people calling Palin a dope makes her a more viable option makes me wonder… option for what? And your take on the ethics complaints filed against her are still lacking in facts. But hey, I understand. I’ve got a little girl who is overly emotional, too.

      • bob says:

        Oh right, I forgot that a totalitarian nanny state is the norm, while a libertarian government that emphasizes the freedoms and responsibilities of the individual is extreme.

        You know, it seems to me like the majority of Mr. Obama’s presidency has been empty rhetoric, with his only real executive decision coming in the past few days. I guess people like you are too busy clapping and cheering when he bows to royalty to notice that he has not fulfilled any of his campaign promises.

      • sauerkraut says:

        And people like you, bob, are too busy trying to stick your nose under Sarah Palin’s skirt to pay attention. Obama has succeeded despite the rotten hand dealt to him by the prior administration. Repairing the damage your guys did to this country will take time, bob. But hey, he’s got a tougher go than sweet little Sarah ever had, and he’ll last longer in his position than she ever did as governor of a state that receives more federal welfare per capita than any other state in the union.

      • bob says:

        No sauerkraut, Obama is still far from succeeding on anything. Repairing the damage that Bush has done (as in the soaring national debt) is the complete opposite of what Obama is doing. He is in fact increasing the national debt by an unprecedented amount in just his first year in office.

        This is why lefties such as yourself are dangerous. Everything is so black and white to you. If they’re not on you’re side, they’re automatically targets to you. I could care less about Sarah’s skirts. The point is that we need someone who will reverse the course this country has taken over the past eight years, and ol’ Barry certainly can’t handle it. Sarah right now is looking like the only other viable alternative, whether you like it or not.

        One more thing, I believe what you are referring to as “federal welfare” is the refund every Alaskan gets as part of the Windfall Tax on oil. As per the Alaskan Constitution, natural resources found in Alaska belong to Alaskan citizens. I believe the way Sarah put it was that oil companies extract oil on the public’s behalf, and must pay the public for use of their land and resources. Also, with such a low population and such a profitable business as oil, of course they would have a high welfare per capita ratio.

        Next time do your research instead of jumping to ad hominem attacks.

      • sauerkraut says:

        Do not chide me on research when you cannot even distinguish between a federal program and state program. The check Alaskans receive for oiled drilled in Alaska is a state program. The “federal welfare” includes things which Rep Young and Alaska’s US Senators bring to Alaska from Washington. Fact: per capita, Alaska receives more from Washington than any other state. Palin likes to complain about earmarks and such things, but she sure liked the Bridge to Nowhere before she was against it. But she accepted the hundreds of millions in funding without actually building that bridge.

        The real question for the BTNW is… what happened to all those federal dollars? Where is her accountability? If she doesn’t like the federal welfare, why did she keep those hundreds of millions?

        As for her being the only “viable alternative,” the GOP has better candidates. Including candidates who do not have a history of suddenly quitting office midstream or of bragging about getting a “D” in basic economics.

        Frankly, anyone who wants to “reverse the course this country has taken over the past eight years” needs to come up with a better presidential candidate than Sarah Palin. Her incoherent speech patterns point to lack of high-level thinking ability – something needed from a credible candidate for POTUS.

  22. Frost-Barnes says:

    Palin is a figure who has rabid followers, but she lacks the ability (or brains, or self-control) to woo new voters. She is attractive to the neo-con base, but doesn’t have the political brains or guts to cross the finish line for them. Ask most Alaskans these days how they feel about their quitting governor…

Your blog post was a reasoned and intelligent critique leveled at Palin’s ghost-written memoir, which merits both laughter and criticism. Their defenses of Palin, as seen in the comments prior to mine (particulary bassackwards) function not as defenses but rather as ad hominem attacks on Obama, who is not the subject of your blog post (only the subject of the hilarious picture). Their irrelevant jabs at Obama, who is, I repeat, NOT THE SUBJECT OF THE BLOG ENTRY make me wonder if they, like Sarah Palin herself, aren’t the sharpest knives in all the knife drawers in the world (and here I take my own great leap backasswards into conservative-style inanity AND dish out an insult, because they’ve earned it and they probably won’t get it, anyway). Sarah Palin certainly hasn’t given us any reason to have faith in her intelligence, so I guess it makes sense that her fans can’t read or argue worth a damn, either.

    For the record, before you illogical lunkhead Palin-drones pigeonhole me, I AM NOT A CARD-CARRYING MEMBER OF ANY POLITICAL PARTY. I just happen to think that neo-conservatives are particularly dim-witted and ignorant.

      I know vitriol and I know evil and Sarah palin is not evil nor is the Republican party.

        harry, harry, harry.

        Wake up and stop smelling Sarah Palin’s contrails.

        It’s not about her sons.

        It’s about her lack of political leadership. It’s about her saying one thing while the actual facts say something else. And there’s more. Ask Mike Wooten. Search his name on Wikipedia. There’s lots of good reading there.

        Ever wonder why so few Alaskans are as pro-Palin as those in the Lower 48? There’s a simple reason. They know her. And from what I’ve read, there are lots of Alaskans who do not like her. Really do not like her. Read Anne Kilkenny’s email if your clueless on why.

        Mike Wooten, and Anne Kilkenny good assigned reading for a Thanksgiving Day.

        No thanks, I think I’ll do the same volunteer work that I did last year, which was deliver 50 turkey dinners to the people living in welfare motels in my area. It’s very rewarding when you can do something like that when you WANT to, not TOLD.

        Happy Thanksgiving.

        PS Barrack Obama is a GREAT story just like 8 Mile with M&M. You see unlike you I can give credit to those who I don’t agree with when they can overcome things and achieve success.

    The only one question: who is Sarah Palin? I did not hear this name before though i can see she is very popular…. hm.. strange…

  38. B. Starvaggi says:

    What a glorified Hunter Sarah is – being proud of your state is one thing but being so countrified it makes you sick is another!!!

    yuck

    “…most Palinesque sentence…”- haha
    ROFL

  40. Fortunatley, I will never even bother reading this over-hyped piece. If she wrote it herself then maybe I might take a look and see. I would rather judge the person by their writing style than by what they have done in the past.

    Thanks

    That picture will be a very good one if it to become a reality. Haven’t read her book as yet but hoping to get a copy.

  42. kjxoxo says:

    Can we just all agree that Sarah Palin DEFINITELY had a ghost writer? (notice: NOT ghost rider… I believe that was a television show in the late ’80s?)

    I mean, the definition of ghost writer is “One who writes for and gives credit of authorship to another.” That sounds about right, doesn’t it?

    And now can we also agree that not all liberals went to ivy league, elite schools, and vacation in the Hamptons? I graduated from a state school this year and currently work three jobs to make ends meet as a recent graduate in a bad job market. I grew up in Ohio and went to college in Kansas, so I’m pretty familiar with the Midwest and “Middle America” to which politicians always try to appeal. I consider myself a “real American,” and am insulted that any conservative propagandist would suggest otherwise.

    So no, I don’t enjoy hearing that Sarah Palin is the voice of “True Americans” when I absolutely do not agree with her on any issue, except for the fact that women who become pregnant out of wedlock deserve compassion and respect.

    That is absolutely hysterical!! If she ever quits politics, maybe she can find a new career in poetry.

  46. Gordon says:

    Bahahahaha, Sarah Palin is so ridiculous. Sorry, but that just can’t be her writing.

    It sounds like too much of a word jumble to even read.

  49. ZZMike says:

    Does anybody really believe that Obama wrote the books with his name on them?

    JFK didn’t write his. Neither did Reagan.

    The difference is that everybody knows who wrote JFK’s, who wrote Reagan’s and who wrote Palin’s.

    Most of us know who wrote Obama’s, too: Bill Ayers.

    Let’s not forget, either, that all of Obama’s speeches – which he carefully reads from his beloved Teleprompter (one of these days, he’s going to get whiplash from looking left and right), are written mostly by Jon Favreau (not the actor).

    Next, let’s see just what Obama ever did before getting elected President:

    That’s right. Exactly nothing – except run for the next office. And vote “Present” more than anyone else.

    Beside all that, Palin’s book is outselling Obama’s by at least 8 to 1. Amazon ratings Palin: #1. “Dreams”: #468. “Audacity”: #750.

    So let’s see an example of Obama’s brilliant prose. Here’s a sentence from page 1 of “Dreams”:

    “The apartment was small, with slanting floors and irregular heat and a buzzer downstairs that didn’t work, so that visitors had to call ahead from a pay phone at the corner gas station, where a black Doberman the size of a wolf paced through the night in vigilant patrol, its jaws clamped around an empty beer bottle.”

    Sounds like the beginning of a really bad 1950’s detective story.

    • sauerkraut says:

      What has Palin ever done… not much, except run for the next office and quit elected and appointed positions. At least Obama earned his degrees.

      Oh, and all politicians use teleprompters. Even W.

  50. StevieC says:

    As a British citizen reading these comments I’m disappointed that both sides have resorted to mud slinging at times. What happened to good old fashioned debate, non-defamatory? Resorting to insults guys only belittles your arguments. Stick to the facts and opinions, but no name calling, please. :)

  55. dfwarn says:

    I’d just like to know when it’s acceptable to urinate on ‘bama posters, since peeing on jesus is considered comedy these days? Libs make fun of this Alaskan because they’re very scared; I can see the possibility of many democrats losing their seats over the next four years. I hear very little about reducing taxes to get the economy moving, just more debt and spending and punitive taxes. How’s that Hopey Changey workin’, someone please explain?

    • sauerkraut says:

      No one is scared of her, dfwarn. But there’s a large number of Americans who would like the truth about her to be brought into the light of day. Enough of these politicians who present themselves one way when they’ve been quite another. Plus, when is Sarah going to talk about her policies? All this time and nothing from her on where she stands and why.

  56. Flower Boy says:

    “I breathed in an autumn bouquet that combined everything small-town America with rugged splashes of the Last Frontier.” Wow! where did she buy them flowers?!

  57. Ghostwriters can certainly over-do it. Judging by the two sentences that you’ve posted, either the writer was writing from a hot air balloon or he was zenned-out.

  61. James says:

    I don’t know why anyone thinks Sarah Palin actually wrote her book. She, like most politicians and entertainers, used a ghost writer.

  62. another photoshop hax…

  63. Steven Harris says:

    Recent polls prove that 100% of those who fall back pn blinkered statistical argument to prove their point have lost the art of actual debate.

  64. alyssa says:

    Hi,
    I’m not an American so i don’t really know how you guys feel about politics but i know one thing, and that is that there is no such thing as an honest politician because, to want to rule something you must first have a drive, a motivation. for example, you come from a poor family who lives in filth and sees violence everyday, there is a high chance you would wish to put a stop to either or both and to that you need power…and i was told that power is a very heady thing so someone who had attained power would not wish to give it up easily… but with regards to Ms Palin’s writing or rather lack of, i must say i am impressed with the amount of vocabulary there was in even one simple sentence… it shows that either the writer had very vivid memories or a fantastic imagination.

  65. Doug Graham says:

    Delighted Sarah Palin arouses so much interest.

    Delighted of the Steves on this planet who defends her from the silly comments of some.

    The Obama establishment, including Pelosi, the Speaker of the House who has a less than 30% approval rating [O.’s just dipped below 50%!] sees in Sarah a threat to its very existence – hence throwing everything incl. tasteless “jokes” and the kitchen sink at Sarah, has become a liberal obsession.

    NB Did anyone notice – certainly not in the leftist media – that a Federal judge set a hearing in an U.S. Federal court for come January 26 – O. MUST produce his birth certificate – are we heading towards a constitutional crisis?

    sourkraut: “What has Palin ever done… not much, except run for the next office and quit elected and appointed positions.”

    One was governor of the largest state in the union. The other was the guy who actually did nothing but run for office.

    And vote “Present” in the Senate (both state and Fed) more than any other way.

    “Americans who would like the truth about her to be brought into the light of day.”
    And just what is that “truth” (that you seem to have privileged access to)?

    James: “I don’t know why anyone thinks Sarah Palin actually wrote her book.”

    The difference is, everybody knows who helped her: Lynn Vincent. It’s all over the Web.

    Not quite as much as Obama’s ghostwriter: Bill Ayers.

    sourkraut: “Which silly comments, Doug? The ones which say her political leadership ain’t so hot?”

    Yes, that would be one of them. Tell us how well Obama did when he was governor of …….
