Sarah Palin's Outfits, continued. Page 3 of 4    (1, 2, 3, 4)

Wow...we are getteing reliable info from the Daily KOS now? Left wing rag...
I see the left is still attacking the Right...nice. You would think that after their savior won, they would be a bit nicer. I guess not. Hate is hate..I say good riddance to you and your hate.
Attacking Sarah Palin for something she had no control over is stupid. Just more lefty sewer verbiage. The fact is Sarah Palin has given the clothing to charity...thought you on the left would like something like this...something good from something not so bad...


Umm...that would be 'Savior', with a capital 'S'. Like, 'Superman'.

Has anyone seen the reciepts?


I cannot seem to find a site with any real proof of the money spent.

I also cannot find anyone that heard her say Africa was a state.... that is what she said?


Obviously you haven't looked too hard for proof. Go back and see the link provided in this thread.

Newsweek knows who heard her say Africa was a country and she didn't know the countries in NAFTA.

THey probably wish to remain anonymous because they are looking for work now and need McCain as a reference.

"she either read the McCain-Feingold act and knew she was accepting clothes that were illegally purchased or she was unaware of the act and not qualified to uphold the laws she was campaigning to defend."

Or she was being a "good soldier" and following the orders of the RNC.

Let those who have never ever followed a bosses orders without disagreeing with them cast the first stone. I restate: She disagreed; said she disagreed; was out voted on the decision by the RNC.

Remember, I am not a Palin fan. I do not think she was qualified for the job. However, I don't think that disagreeing with the RNC and complying with them is a basis that will win any credence. "Good soldier" is often considered a quality.

Can we let this woman take her rightful place among political trivia questions for future generations?

She was fun while she lasted. Her future Presidential aspirations are met with two possible outcomes. 1, she embodies the very things about the GOP of which people are weary and the best she could do is to acquire at best the same margin of defeat as this year or 2, the GOP recognizes the people are weary of them and they remake themselves in an image that does not include the likes of Sarah Palin. She could remain a Governor and maybe even find herself in the Senate and retain popularity and significance, but she will never be as close to sniffing the Oval Office as she was last week.

Oh yes, is that why Steve Schmidt, the campaign's chief strategist, for the McCain camp went on the record by saying that this claim was utterly bogus......

The Africa issue yes, the outfit issue as far as I can tell isn't being denied, Republicans are now turning on their own.

Yay circular firing squad!

Being that Schmidt was with the McCain entourage and the unnamed sources were with the Palin entourage, How could he possibly know what was said by unnamed sources or who they were?

I've been reading these forums since long before the primaries
I don't know what source you're quoting, but if you are referring to the posts on POF
NO !
Obama fans are not also fans of Hillary
whatever made you think that?
if anything,, they have shown great contempt for her...

that Palin may or may not have spent so much on clothing-
is that any more obscene than what Obama spent on his campaign...

Uh huh, thats what you and the two other PUMA's in the world would have us believe.

May or may not have? She doesn't even deny it, in fact it's now Republicans pointing it out. Which was the point of the thread.

actually, if it were just me- and not the other TWO pumas in the world-
I still would say that Obama fans have shown contempt for Hillary
I've never believed that just because a lot of people say the same thing- therefore, it must be true...
if there's only three of us in the entire frickin world saying this- so what-
doesn't mean I believe it less...

May or may not have? She doesn't even deny it, in fact it's now Republicans pointing it out. Which was the point of the thread

okay, so even if I accept that the amount given was spent on her clothing-
I would still argue, that the amount spent on Obama's campaign was obscene....

Well apparently it was inusfficient contempt to prevent Hilaries endorsement of Obama, maybe if you want to talk about that particular subject you should revive the hillraiser thread?

Take it to another thread then, I actually look forward to you telling me there what Obama should have done, returned the donations? Not fundraised?

There is a very old saying "Do not throw stones while living in a glass house."

She threw plenty of stones and when it came back on her she plays the sexist card. I do not feel sorry for her one bit.

oh pleez
reread the posts on here- many have less to do with Palin then what I wrote-

but if there's a mention of Clinton, who by the way, I did not bring up... then one must go to time out and you're called, a puma, ohhhh ouch!

back to Palin-
were you as upset to hear that Edwards got a $400 haircut
do you have any idea how much the men spent on their tailor made suits during their campaigning

but hey, maybe you could write Palin and ask her to put her expensive clothing on sale on ebay-

Gee i don't know maybe because he was McCains' top chief strategist in which he was able to over see a lot of the operations going around in the McCain camp.

I don't think the issue now is about how much was spent, or how it compares to the amount the campaigns spent on this election...it's about the legality. The election is over and ti issue will be looked at by campaign strategist and taken into consideration in future campaigns.

The legality of the purchases is something no one will know until the RNC and the McCain campaign file their final reports, and Palin files her taxes. Then this may or not be an issue. By then we will be knee deep in opinions on how Obama is handling the economy and Iraq etc. It probably won't even register on the news. If she did something wrong she will get slapped for it, pay a fine, and deal with the ramifications in future election campaigns.

The perception of being a 'joe sixpack' 'hockey mom' was tarnished by her wearing the clothes. And remember, no one forced her to wear then, and remember how quickly after the news about this came out, she started to wear her own clothes and point that out to the media.

I chuckle everytime I read that and hope that is all she ever becomes. It's embarrassing how America shunned away from intelligence in a Presidential candidate in 2000 and 2004 - I am glad that we elected one in 2008.

Palin's handling of the clothes issue is just one of many telling shortcomings she demonstrated in the election that makes her a less then desirable candidate for 2012. If she runs in 2012, and does well, that will speak volumes about the republican party...they just don't get it. You can't keep stirring up fear of the Democrats so you can push your neocon, christian agenda.

I chuckle every time I think about how dismissive some pseudo intellectuals are, because you don’t subscribe to their limited perspective and adhere to their political philosophy it’s construed as an indication of the absence of intelligence. Take this election for example, they BARELY squeak out a victory over someone who ran a half-assed campaign at best and somehow they feel as though they have been anointed as all knowing. It's this very smugness that has cost them in the past and will cost them yet again in the future.
Politics and political direction is cycular in nature. Most people get it, that’s why they don’t spend their day gloating over something that peaks every 2-4-6-8-12 years, that being a change in the electorate winds. Without fail, both reigning parties get a little too big for their britches after being in power for an extended period and the electorate takes them down a peg, just as Pelosi and Reid will discover in 2010 when they lose their positions as House and Senate Majority Leaders.
The frequency of that change is directly attributable to the smugness of those in power. Clinton lost the confidence of the electorate when he tapped his completely unqualified wife to head up the healthcare issue. It was perceived by the masses that he felt, by virtue of being around him, that her total lack of experience in the arenas of both the legislative process AND healthcare itself was a non-issue, and that she would automatically be granted “all knowing” status and by doing so would guide her subjects to the correct position on all his policies… we all know just how successful that was, he lost the supermajority AND control of both the House and the Senate in the very first midterm election. He didn’t lose it because people no longer cared about the issue, but because they felt he no longer took the issue seriously and put forth someone to spearhead the effort who couldn’t even muster enough support within his own party to move the issue forward.

I chuckle every time the term “neocon” is thrown around, particularly when the person using it has no idea what the term actually means. Absolutely no idea that the term was first coined as an insult to Democrats who began to favor the fiscal and socially conservative philosophies promoted by the Reagan administration. I think today they refer to them as “Blue Dog” Democrats. The only insult to Republicans in being called a “neocon” is the inference that at one time the person’s philosophy was actually in line with the liberal agenda.
As for the insistence that Democrats are being put upon by the “Christian agenda” it takes only a few minutes on Google to discover that the majority of registered voters of Evangelical Christian faith actually voted for democrats, not republicans in the last two national elections.

As the contest between the Maverick and the Newbie comes together, many expect boundaries between red and blue to be redrawn and alliances to shift. For the first time in many years, the allegiance of evangelicals and values voters-- one of George Bush's strongest constituencies-- may fall to the Left. Not surprisingly, the New York Times reports today that John McCain's campaign has gone into triage mode to alleviate "a continued wariness toward him among evangelicals and other Christian conservatives, a critical voting bloc for Republicans that could stay home in the fall or at least be decidedly unenthusiastic in their efforts to get out the vote."

Reverend Jim Wallis, whose book The Great Awakening: Reviving Faith and Politics in a Post-Religious America came out in January-- is one of many who argue that the evangelical vote will not be "decidedly unenthusiastic" this year, but rather refocused on a broader, more progressive agenda. "Many evangelical and Pentecostal Christians are leaving the Religious Right while retaining their commitment to live out their faith in the world," Wallis writes. As evangelicals begin to see the Iraq war and economic hardships as moral imperatives even more pressing than the sanctity of marriage, more and more are voting Democratic. The evidence of this political shift has already started accumulating-- and by Wallis' assessment, the time is right for Democrats to fully embrace their religious constituents.
More white evangelicals voted for Democrats in House races in 2006 than in 2004… Fewer evangelicals voted for Republicans in 2006 than for Bush in 2004.
The 2006 Congressional elections showed that Christians, much like the rest of the country, are growing weary of the current brand of Republicanism. Exit polls showed that 6 percent more Catholics and 5 percent more white evangelicals voted for Democrats in House races in 2006 than in 2004. Eight percent fewer evangelicals voted for Republicans in 2006 than for Bush in 2004. Some have questioned whether it was wise for John McCain to reject the endorsements of evangelical leaders such as the controversial Rev. John Hagee and Rev. Rod Parsley, but Wallis would argue the influence of such men is fading. In The Great Awakening, Wallis shares the anecdotal evidence of a rally he took part in at Bethel University in Minnesota that drew a larger crowd than the "moral values" rally James Dobson held in the area two weeks prior.

One would think the correct lesson to take from this change in political wind is that abandoning ones base is detrimental to ones future in the political spectrum. Clinton thought he had a mandate, clearly he was wrong. Bush thought he had one, clearly he was wrong. The only mandate given when someone is elected to office is to do as promised during the campaign; nothing less … adding to that agenda is quite simply playing Russian roulette with only one empty chamber.

And we should think you're the intellectual because you're good at tossing long winded insults?

Besides quoting someone that stayed on topic, nothing else you say is on topic

Do you expect us to think that's intellectual?
Like Palin, you sure can toss out a lot of words that don't address the issue but that's not intellect.

Go figure Tim. They hijacked the word too so you can file your Wikipedia outdated definitions in the bottom drawer. I mean the NeoCons by the now expanded definition sure as hell don't mind that they refer to themselves as Conservative obviously not knowing what the word means.

Words are added to the dictionary every year and more definitions are added to expand the word. Neo = New. NeoCon now means the "New Conservatives" that label themselves Conservatives when they really are overbearing, hateful, Phobic maniacs that give Conservatives and the Republican Party a bad name.

Actually the Wikipedia definition pretty much follows the current application; although it does give a somewhat accurate history of the evolution of the term, its present loose application to traditional conservatives is far less accurate than to the conservative leaning current and former democrats. In short, it’s still more of an accurate description of blue moderates who lean right on issues of foreign policy as well as fiscal and social impact.

NeoCon now means the "New Conservatives" that label themselves Conservatives when they really are overbearing, hateful, Phobic maniacs that give Conservatives and the Republican Party a bad name.
I have no objection to any category label when properly applied. If I were a Liberal, I would have no objection to being categorized as such, nor would I if I were a NeoCon, but the simple fact is, I have been a Conservative my entire adult life, so there is nothing "new" about my personal political philosophy, and nothing “new” about the premise of personal accountability, responsibility and success through hard work. There is nothing "new" about conservatives advocating basic Judeo-Christian morality as a tenet of social behavior. As a matter of fact, our judicial system is predicated on laws derived directly from the Ten Commandments … can you tell me how that equates to “new”?

If you ask me, it’s the group who redefine terms in an effort to demonize any opposition to their narrow philosophies that are the overbearing, hateful and phobic maniacs. Correct me if I’m wrong, but haven’t there been significant political philosophies in history with a similar approach to socio-economic policies whose survival depended on wiping out all philosophical opposition?
In the past 40 years we have had GOP leadership for all but 12 years, yet we have seen an end to school prayer, the specific banning of any Judeo-Christian religious displays on public property, loss of property rights, redistribution of wealth through ineffective social programs and the loss of the God given right to discipline our children in a manner consistent with our beliefs … please do take the time to explain to me how the religious right, the alleged fanatical overbearing, hateful, Phobic maniacal base of the Republican Party is exerting its will over the electorate through elected officials.


PS. Some of those outfits Ms. Palin was wearing were HOT!

As an Obama fan, I can tell you that I am also a great admirer of Hillary Clinton, and have never shown contempt for her--even when she stood by her adulterous husband, as so many others did.

Not sure where the poster got their information, but it is incorrect.

Governor Sarah Palin looked absolutely great in a flattering leather jacket on the news the other day.
One thing she took away from the media crush of the 2008 VP campaign was how to select quality garments.

She was illustrating how her son Trig was pictured with his service dog Jill in recent news.
Ellen DeGeneres had earlier shown her similar photo of a young owner playfully shown atop her pet.
