Poor poor rumor mongers…

The FBI reiterated Saturday, telling the Los Angeles Times for a story Sunday, that the Federal Bureau of Investigation was not investigating Palin’s activities as governor, a former mayor or in any other capacity. “There is absolutely no truth to those rumors that we’re investigating her or getting ready to indict her,” Special Agent Eric Gonzalez, the bureau’s Alaska spokesman, said.

** Editors note:  Since a certain Democrat shill (and judged by Juice Readers as the biggest hack in Orange County) on this blog continues to maintain my “party status”,  I have to say that they are far behind on the “third party or DTS bandwagon”. This political activist hasnt been able to vote for a GOP candidate for President since 1992 and worked the hardest year of my LIFE all the way to November against George W in 2000 on another Presidential campaign. However, that person who shall go nameless has no trouble admitting that he will vote for Socialists and Liberals whenever it is convenient.

“How sad that Washington and the media will never understand; it’s about country,” Sarah Palin said,  “And though it’s honorable for countless others to leave their positions for a higher calling and without finishing a term (BO we hardly knew ye, and nobody cared), of course we know by now, for some reason a different standard applies for the decisions I make.”

The abruptness of her announcement and the mystery surrounding her plans have fed widespread speculation. But Palin attorney Thomas Van Flein on Saturday warned legal action may be taken against bloggers and publications that reprint what he calls fraudulent claims.

“To the extent several websites, most notably liberal Alaska blogger Shannyn Moore, are now claiming as ‘fact’ that Governor Palin resigned because she is ‘under federal investigation’ for embezzlement or other criminal wrongdoing, we will be exploring legal options this week to address such defamation,” Van Flein said in a statement. “This is to provide notice to Ms. Moore, and those who re-publish the defamation, such as Huffington Post, MSNBC, the New York Times and The Washington Post, that the Palins will not allow them to propagate defamatory material without answering to this in a court of law.”

He also told the Anchorage Daily News that Palin wasn’t in any criminal legal jeopardy. “I can say definitively I am aware of no criminal investigation whatsoever involving Sarah Palin. Zero,” he said.

I have never said I would vote for this woman. However, I am quite disturbed about the ability of my fellow citizens to judge that someone who leaves office after little more than a year “FOR HIGHER OFFICE” and abandons his state to corrupt politicians is GREAT AND HOPEFUL AND TRUSTWORTHY, yet someone who says “Well, not gonna run for re election, so why not let the next person get started?” is called names…

HIGHER OFFICE is not an aspiration I judge to be all that admirable. Downright skanky, if you asked me.


Sarah Palin Favorability

Almost a year after capturing the attention of the political world as John McCain’s running mate, Sarah Palin remains a broadly popular figure within the Republican Party, despite receiving mixed reviews from the public as a whole.
Palin received her highest overall favorability rating of 50% in mid-September 2008, shortly after McCain named her as his vice-presidential running mate. At that time just 34% expressed an unfavorable opinion of the Alaska governor, while 16% offered no opinion. But her favorability slipped later in the campaign. In mid-October, more people expressed an unfavorable opinion of Palin (48%) than a favorable opinion (42%). Since the election, public views of Palin have shifted only slightly.

Unlike Romney, Palin’s ratings continue to be much better among conservative Republicans (80%) than among moderates and liberals in the party (62%). And while positive views of Palin have slipped among non-evangelical Republicans (from 77% to 67%), they remain overwhelmingly positive among white evangelical Republicans (84% now, 85% last October).
