According to the Washington Post, she first met with McCain

LOL...what a scream!

And according to her, as Vice-President, "she gets right in there and creates policies with other senators, as the head of the Senate."

LOL...she is clueless. She is not commander in chief of the national guard if it is dispatched to Iraq. Sorry. And thankfully.

But she is in charge of the following:

--Asking for federal money to build the "Bridge to Nowhere"
--Billing Alaskans for her kids' travel that had nothing to do with state business
--NOT selling the governor's private jet on Ebay
--NOT breaking ground on a natural gas pipeline
--Getting a complete makeover from Republican National Committee money ("ya know, just your average hockey mom")
--found guilty of "unethical conduct"
--having been "de-witched" in some crazy religious ceremony
--hiring a lobbyist for Wasilla, Alaska, population = tiny


But...she had a uterus. She told Katie Couric she's a feminist but told Brian Williams she's not.

That was an easy flip. She probably learned that from...let me see...oh, GRAMPY MCSAME!

This is going to be a landslide Marie. Good thing you're in California. We might have to roundup some crazy redneck neocons in Oklahoma and arrest them for not being able to speak English.

She would be the deciding vote in the senate as Cheney is now! That IS the Head Of The Senate! Not Harry Reid, the Vice President!

Now if the Senate is Democrat run (God Help us all) the Senator doesnt much matter nless once again they need a deadlock vote!

So what she said about the Vice President's job is accurate.

The Vice President serves at the pleasure of the President! And all the President's appointees do as well. Yes the VP does help create policy for and with the President.

Yes she has been commander-in-cheif of the National Guard as long as she has been Governor of Alaska. You my dear have left the Reservation and need a history lesson!


But she is in charge of the following:

--Asking for federal money to build the "Bridge to Nowhere"
--Billing Alaskans for her kids' travel that had nothing to do with state business
--NOT selling the governor's private jet on Ebay
--NOT breaking ground on a natural gas pipeline
--Getting a complete makeover from Republican National Committee money ("ya know, just your average hockey mom")
--found guilty of "unethical conduct"
--having been "de-witched" in some crazy religious ceremony
--hiring a lobbyist for Wasilla, Alaska, population = tiny


So in essence what you are saying that Bill Clinton who was Governor of Arkansas was less qualified to be Commander-In-Cheif?

Sorry buddy but Governors have had to make much more tough decisions than a Senator (An unseasoned) Senator ever has. Governors have alway's had the executive experience more so than any Senator.

But then again in your estimation, Bill Clinton was an idiot?


But...she had a uterus. She told Katie Couric she's a feminist but told Brian Williams she's not.

A Uterus? See that's the kind of Moronic attitude you guy's have.

Dont start measuring the drapes in the White House just yet my freind, It's comment's like that, that will be your demise!

Dont forget the only poll that is really going to count is on Noverber 4th!

Palin has more executive experience than the other 3 candidates combined.

Fixed it for ya:
--Asking for federal money to build the "Bridge to Nowhere"


Palin was for it until the people wanted her to be against it. She vetoed it (Democrats have a history of supporting candidates who are for something before they are against it). Now, they’re against them until they’re for them.

How did Biden and Obama vote on it, btw?

Even the Democrats in her state acknowledged and gave her credit for killing the bridge to nowhere.

--Billing Alaskans for her kids' travel that had nothing to do with state business

--NOT selling the governor's private jet on Ebay


Palin said she put Murkowski’s jet transport on eBay. She did. She did not say it sold on eBay. It ultimately sold thru a broker.

However, what Palin did was exactly what she said she did. She put it on eBay. And the Alaskans appreciated her decision to sell since it was also a colossal waste of taxpayer dollars.

--NOT breaking ground on a natural gas pipeline:

Gov. Palin broke a multi-year stalemate over the financing and construction of a $40 billion cross-state gas pipeline that will deliver cleaner, cheaper natural gas to Alaska's own population centers (Alaskans themselves pay some of the nation's highest energy prices), while also delivering gas to the energy-hungry Lower 48. To do this, she had to break the monopoly power of the big energy companies by opening the project to competitive international bidding. Not only has a development contract with a Canadian company now been signed on better terms than had previously been discussed, but the former monopolists — finally spurred by competition — are cranking up their own plan that would not require any taxpayer investment. How precisely this will shake out remains to be seen, but Gov. Palin's vigorous action — calling special sessions of the state legislature and injecting herself directly and vigorously into the process — has ended the deadlock in ways that seem certain to benefit consumers. By this accomplishment, Gov. Palin has done more to advance the cause of American energy independence than any other politician — of any party, and at any level of state or federal government — in this century. But the national media have generally ignored this accomplishment.

--Getting a complete makeover from Republican National Committee money ("ya know, just your average hockey mom")


--found guilty of "unethical conduct"

--having been "de-witched" in some crazy religious ceremony

--hiring a lobbyist for Wasilla, Alaska, population = tiny
:

Lobbyists are a fact of political life… some good, some way too powerful. However every candidate, including both Obama and McCain, deal with lobbyists daily…. and acquiesce to them as well.

The difference here is that while Obama acquiesces to, and accepts the support and money of lobbyists, Palin was the executive administrator who hired the lobbyists to stay on point for the issue to benefit the city. Surely you have enough logic to know she can’t walk the halls and talk to the legislators daily herself while running the city.

Palin was working to get a needed task done using the standard political system. Congress members (state or federal) respond for many reasons: believe in the need, payola, or political favors owed or collecting.

You can try and make it slimy by throwing out the catch words, “lobbyist” and “special interest”. But you will be doing your candidate no favors. He has been the darling of more than a few lobbyists himself, as well as the complete Chicago political machine.

I’ll take Palin’s side as an executive administrator any day. At least she was using the system to benefit her constituents. Unfortunately, Congress members tend to use it to benefit themselves… including His Messiahship. He didn’t get this far, this fast, without special interests and beaucoup bucks from the right people in Chicago.

Marie,

Notice how Wordsmith didn't touch the first part of my post. He knows the Constitution. You don't.
What Palin said was dangerously naive and ignorant.

President of the Senate

As President of the Senate (Article I, Section 3), the vice president oversees procedural matters and may cast a tie-breaking vote. There is a strong convention within the U.S. Senate that the vice president not use his or her position as President of the Senate to influence the passage of legislation or act in a partisan manner, except in the case of breaking tie votes. (What did this just say? Can you read it again, Marie?)
They do not "get in there and work with the senators to create policy."

Once again Marie, you're dead wrong. You and Sarah Palin are both equally ignorant of the Constitution. Instead of going to Saks and Neiman Marcus, she should have received a copy of the Constitution.

Wordsmith,

You're amazing. You use blog references as factual? Again?
And Hugh Hewitt?

My guess is this: you're really intelligent and you're more of a Reagan republican, very respectable. But you are forced to use your intellect to try to explain some of the mind-boggling decisions by the Bush administration and the McSame/Palin campaign. You are frustrated at times because even someone as smart as yourself cannot explain the complete incompetence and utter disregard for the Constitution and for the American public.

I have to say, you do an amazing job of spinning some of the most toxic fecal matter I have ever witnessed.

*Question: What U.S. governor is routinely briefed on
highly classified military issues, homeland security, and
counter terrorism?


As phrased, the question is somewhat misleading. It isn't that Gov. Palin is routinely briefed on such matters, the Governor of Alaska is the only so briefed. No other State shares a border with a hostile nation. Because of that proximity to Russia, Alaskan governors have the responsibilty to react in the interests of the nation and they have mere minutes, not quarters or halves of hours to consult with Washington DC, but seconds of minutes of hours.

Whether the Governor of Alaska is Sarah Palin or someone else, my life is in that person's hands. Sarah Palin has several times responded to Russian incurrsions into US and Alaskan airspace as recently as August 2008. No disrespect to the Governor of Oklahoma where the wing comes sweepin' down the plain, but when was last time he scrambled jet fighters to pursue a Russian Bear long range bomber?



Fed is an idiot.

What should I rely on? MSM? You, because you say so, then it must be true? No links of your own?

Your problem is, rather than bothering to read the information and check to see where those I link to got their information, it's much easier for you to just live in your own set of "facts".

MataHarley does a lot of good research. I trust her research. It's intellectual laziness on your part not to bother with a critical examination of what I linked to. It's time-constraint/laziness on my part, not to write my own thoughts to refute your Palin Derangement Syndrome-injected beliefs.

Flopping Aces is where I contribute. It's where Scott contributes, whose work you were so dismissive of, because it doesn't fit your partisan narrative.

It amazes me how often you dismiss blog links, when you run a blog of your own. The best blogs out there cite their sources, and most bloggers I know read more mainstream news than your average joe. So I just don't understand why you always attack the source, the writer, and not address the information presented.

Blogger The Federalist said...

Wordsmith,

My answer would be the same for someone who is on the right looking to prove/disprove a story and relies entirely on my blog for the reference.

I'm neither conservative nor republican so who would base their "fact check" on my blog?

You don't have a link/story/pictures to prove that the gas pipeline has actually begun construction?

You have no references/links to show that Palin WAS NOT in fact found to have exhibited "unethical behavior" by and I quote, "The bipartisan Legislative Council, which commissioned the investigation after Monegan was fired, unanimously adopted the 263-page public report after a marathon executive session Friday"???

Are we then to believe that EVERY SINGLE MEDIA OUTLET AVAILABLE is lying, and Flopping Aces is now our one and only trustworthy news source on the face of the planet?

The fact that the RNC themselves admitted to the $150,000 shopping spree for the hockey mom...does Flopping Aces now have the privilege and right to retract that admission and thereby make the story false?

I'm really confused Wordsmith, help me out here.

The logic is getting to be a bit like the Bush Regime.

Example: Saddam wants to possess WMD. Al-Qaeda would like to possess a WMD. Saddam and al-Qaeda are working together in a close relationship.

The syllogism is absolutely illogical and baseless but if you are the first one to throw it out there, does it make it true?

I actually like your last comment, federalist. It sounds like I'm talking to a real human being and not just another wingnut like me, shouting, laughing, and insulting each other from opposite sides of the fence.

Are we then to believe that EVERY SINGLE MEDIA OUTLET AVAILABLE is lying, and Flopping Aces is now our one and only trustworthy news source on the face of the planet?

No, of course not! Obviously, Flopping Aces is to the right, just as you're not. We're all partisans here, cheerleading our side.

But it doesn't make me automatically dismiss lefty sources, because it's coming from the left. Sometimes, it's not so much the facts that are incorrect as it is how we interpret said facts. Like glass half full, half empty. Which version is correct?

I've used Media Matters and Huffington Post and other lefty outlets on occasion, and their reportage. I don't just outright dismiss with out consideration for what it is they are reporting. Same goes with MSM. All news dissemination should be held under scrutiny.

Remember when you and Scott debated? MSM outlets hadn't bothered to read the Iraqi Perspectives Project; subsequently, they misreported the substance of what was in that study. Scott not only read all 1600 pages, but also has the reading background of Senate Intell Reports and other related readings to contextualize and cross-reference the material. Should I trust him or a mainstream journalist who hasn't made it a focal point of his career to study American foreign policy and pour through Senate bills and intell reports?

Reporters, journalists, writers, bloggers earn credibility by what they report and how they report it. Credibility is earned. Much of MSM has lost credibility in terms of trustworthiness from political bias. But I still rely upon them to disseminate the news items of the day. You just have to learn to read everything with a grain of salt and a critical eye to what is cold fact and what is opinion and interpretation of those facts. Even a writer's choice of "murdered" over "killed" can color perspective and shape a reader's opinion.

In general, I do trust much of MSM even as I am suspicious of bias. That's because bias can be very subtle, and takes many forms (bias by omission, bias by headlining, etc.). At least with Daily Kos, I know where they are coming from. At least with Hugh Hewitt, I know what perspective his take on the news will be. I think open admission to partisanship is healthy. What is destructive is passing oneself off as non-partisan. People like Helen Thomas and Dan Rather are either fooling themselves, or both themselves and the public by saying their bias doesn't go into their copy. That denial is a disservice.

The fact that the RNC themselves admitted to the $150,000 shopping spree for the hockey mom...does Flopping Aces now have the privilege and right to retract that admission and thereby make the story false?

That misses the point. I wasn't refuting the fact that the shopping spree happened. Just dampening the lefty spin on it. Please go through the comments sections in the links provided. I don't want to be here, typing out any more than I feel is necessary.

Example: Saddam wants to possess WMD. Al-Qaeda would like to possess a WMD. Saddam and al-Qaeda are working together in a close relationship.

Wordsmith,

Good post. Thanks for taking the time to do that. I feel I understand you and your position much better as a result.

That last example of logic was not so much about the content of what I typed rather the link.

I did a post on my blog about the reversal of logic since 9/11. The idea now that one is "guilty until proven innocent."

I have yet to go to Daily Kos or to Huffington Post, other than for the occasional comic relief video, a la Daily Show.

I read mostly from Italian publications as it is difficult to get true facts when entertainment is the number one motivator.

I have also noted that you have been very critical of the Bush Administration, in fact, authentically critical. During the Clinton years I was very critical of some of the policies, especially during the last 3 years.

I was living in Italy at the time and had a very fresh, outside perspective. I believe that it is healthy to criticize your party, your leaders and your country. Otherwise, we get into a situation similar to the Carter years where our leader gets a free pass because it was the calm after the storm (Vietnam, Watergate).

Thanks for the exchange.

Fed,

Not to interrupt your conversation with Wordsmith but I am going to defend myself here:

Marie,

Notice how Wordsmith didn't touch the first part of my post. He knows the Constitution. You don't.
What Palin said was dangerously naive and ignorant.

President of the Senate

As President of the Senate (Article I, Section 3), the vice president oversees procedural matters and may cast a tie-breaking vote. There is a strong convention within the U.S. Senate that the vice president not use his or her position as President of the Senate to influence the passage of legislation or act in a partisan manner, except in the case of breaking tie votes. (What did this just say? Can you read it again, Marie?)
They do not "get in there and work with the senators to create policy."

Once again Marie, you're dead wrong. You and Sarah Palin are both equally ignorant of the Constitution. Instead of going to Saks and Neiman Marcus, she should have received a copy of the Constitution.


No! Sarah Palin would cast the deciding vote in the Senate (Should it arise) and if you dont know that YOU dont know the constitution!

Oh Please!!! Sarah Palin cant even make a joke without you on the left demeening her.

Ok I have another one for ya, you all have been screaming over the last 7 years "This was Cheney's war, Cheney is in charge of Halliburton, Cheney this, Cheney that, as if he had policy decisions!

Ya Reckon?

So if the Vice President just sit's there doing nothing I guess they must be irrelevent!

The President and Vice President Meet every single day, get briefings, work together to make policy and decide together how to handle wahtever situation arises!

You seem to forget that the VP is in total touch with the threats that face us day by day, with Briefings at the White House, talking alone with the President, and deciding what move to take next.

I have been in Politics probably longer than you have been alive!

So dont tell me I am ignorant, dont know what's going on, and I dont know the Constitution!

If you were to quit downgrading me constantly we may be able to have a conversation, but you do nothing but put me down and that I am getting sick to death of it!

Ok now yall can get back to your conversation with Word!

Just dont berade me!

Just for laughs, let's take a look at what the U.S. Constitution actually says about the role of the Vice President in the Senate:
"The Vice President of the United States shall be President of the Senate, but shall have no vote, unless they be equally divided."
So says Article I, §3, which you can find at http://www.law.cornell.edu/constitution/constitution.articlei.html#section3 if you're interested.
I don't think it's too much of a stretch to say that being "president" of something is a lot like "being in charge of" it, but then I don't go around making excuses for people like Barney Frank and that sexual harrasser from Florida.
As for whether Mrs. Palin is the commander in chief of the Alaska National Guard, here's what the Alaska Constitution has to say about that:
"§ 19. Military Authority

The governor is commander-in-chief of the armed forces of the State. He may call out these forces to execute the laws, suppress or prevent insurrection or lawless violence, or repel invasion. The governor, as provided by law, shall appoint all general and flag officers of the armed forces of the State, subject to confirmation by a majority of the members of the legislature in joint session. He shall appoint and commission all other officers."
This from the official state government website at http://ltgov.state.ak.us/constitution.php?section=3.
Of course, if nothing will do but that we must have a black man as President, none of this will make any difference.

Marie,

Your post was completely nonsensical. No response needed.

Uncle Pavian,

Thank you for validating my argument: the Vice-President plays no role in creating policy with the other senators (as Palin stated she would do).

Sarah Palin is not the Commander in Chief of her National Guard while they are in Iraq, and quite possibly may not be the Commander in Chief while they are on U.S. soil. The Bush Regime implemented the Military Commissions Act where Fuhrer Bush can seize control of the National Guard of each state in the event of what the Fuhrer could deem, "a national emergency".

That is the first time in our nation's history that the States would have to relinquish control of their own militia. Which, that was the point altogther: that the States could protect themselves against the federal government.

Who cares? 8 days from this nightmare is over and our country is returned along with the Constitution.

Stevens = guilty.

Just icing on the cake.

You Dumbass!

I wasn't talking about making or help creating Policy with The Senator's I was talking about with the President!

All I said is if need be the VP would cast the deciding vote in the Senate. Not making policy with them.

Geez dont you pay any attention?

Yes the Veep alway's helps make policy with the President but the decision lies souly with the President.

Hell, even Tony Snow said if he took the job as Press Secretary he would do so if he had an input on Policy decisions and Prez Bush said yes you may! Doesn't mean I have to take it, but you can voice your opinion.

The VP has to sit in with the President on all important meetings just in case the worst should happen and that person may have to take right over as President of the United States!

The Vice President is also allowed to have an agenda all their own, in Sarah Palin's case she want's to have a hand in MAKING POLICY for Special Needs Children, and other things she want's to do.

For once, just once, instead of picking me apart all the time try to understand what I am saying just for once?
