^ Oh whooppee. Sarah comes out of her cone of silence, and her first online comment since quitting as Governor of Alaska is this. Of course-

This is pure fantasy, fact-free almost in its entirety. The nonpartisan group FactCheck.org said there was no basis for such a claim in any of the health care bills under consideration in Congress. One House bill would pay for counseling for terminally ill patients — something anyone who has lost an elderly loved one of late, as I have, will find essential.

Palin’s Poison - Timothy Egan Blog - NYTimes.com

Oh boy. How do you break this gently to an American- this was the woman that the Republican Party ran in the last elections to be your potential Vice President.

I remember when most of the smart ambitious kids at Uni were Conservative leaning (I'll try and avoid the term 'Right', it has been totally discredited). Now, only 6% of Scientists in the US admit to being Republican. Any wonder why? Oh boy.

'Bye Sarah.

"For a democracy, which depends on an informed citizenry to balance a permanent lobbying class, this is poison. And it’s one reason why town hall forums on health care, which should be sharp debates about something that affects all of us, have turned into town mauls.
The lies and shouts have had the effect that all crank speech has on free speech — stifling any real exchange. In my state, Representative Brian Baird, a veteran of more than 300 town hall meetings during his 11 years as a Democratic congressman from southwest Washington, has decided not to hold any such forums this recess after receiving death threats."

Who is Michelle Bachmann? (I'll wiki her).

These Death Panel statement are propaganda and false correct? Other posters claim it's not on the bill.

Just for the record, to confirm. Death Panels won't exist, correct?

^Here is a site that might help you understand Michele Bachmann a little more. I used their search function to find these articles. You can do the same to find even more about her (if these articles don’t tell you enough).

http://firedoglake.com/search/?terms=+Michele+Bachmann&sm=01&sd=01&sy=2000&em=08 &ed=12&ey=2009&dq=25&ob=date&dd=this&ss=asc&as=1&s ubmit=Search

“Very odd” is an understatement when you’re talking about Ms. Bachmann.

From one of the articles,...............It's funny -- outside of Penn Station I saw a guy a guy huffing glue out of a paper bag and he was making more sense than Michele Bachmann was making.

had a chance to watch "game change" the other night....it's an HBO film about the 2008 US presidential campaign which primarily focuses on sarah palin's disastrous VP candidacy.

it's an absolutely brutal portrayal of a woman in way over her head.....but it is great viewing. check it out if you get a chance.

The film/series has been totally discredited. Check the reply to Humbert in the other thread. But good try anyway...

Palin on Obama’s comments about Trayvon Martin: “I think it was orchestrated

Gee, ya think?

"Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin said lawmakers need to tone down the rhetoric in the aftermath of the Trayvon Martin shooting and suggested that President Obama orchestrated remarks he made about the teenager’s death.
“It’s not going to do anybody any good to ratchet up the rhetoric based on speculation,” Palin told Fox News. . . .
She also called out President Obama — saying he should not have jumped into the growing outrage over the shooting.
“I think it was orchestrated,” Palin said. “I’m going to get clobbered for even suggesting this, but it is what I believe.”
The president addressed the shooting in the Rose Garden.
“My main message is to the parents of Trayvon Martin. You know, if I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon,” Obama said. “All of us as Americans are going to take this with the seriousness it deserves.”
“Obviously, this is a tragedy. I can only imagine what these parents are going through,” Obama said. “All of us have to do some soul searching to figure out how something like this has happened.
Palin said she was “very, very surprised out of all the issues that are going on in our country today that the president” would have taken a question about the Martin case."

Baloney Booners and you know it. Of course your hero Sarah Palin wouldn't like because it makes her look like the idiot she is.

http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/politics/2012/03/former-sarah-palin-adviser-says-game-change-was-true-enough-to-make-me-squirm/

One of Sarah Palin’s top advisers said today that HBO’s “Game Change” was “true enough to make me squirm,” despite Palin’s contention that the docudrama about her rise to national stardom during the 2008 presidential campaign was a “false narrative.”
Nicolle Wallace, a Republican strategist and senior adviser to the McCain-Palin 2008 campaign, was one of Palin’s main handlers during that whirlwind presidential campaign four years ago. She is played by Sarah Paulson in the 118-minute HBO film

Steve Schmidt also thought the movie rang true

if it wasn't true, she'd already have filed lawsuits against the authors and publishers of the book and time warner, which owns HBO.

Sarah Palin’s Latest Triumph? Deb Fischer Wins Nebraska GOP Primary

That’s the question on the minds of Washington’s political class in the wake of the surprising primary result from Nebraska. For those not up on their Cornhusker politics, a little-known two-term state senator named Deb Fischer edged out two statewide office holders, Attorney General Jon Bruning and state Treasurer Don Stenberg, for the GOP U.S. Senate nomination.

Sarah Palin

Deal with it!

Purely an American phenomenon, purely a Republican one at that. The people spoke accordingly.
Whoever the next Republican failed veep conteder might be, he/she will at least know that Africa is not a country, and that the Queen is not the head of the British government.

No surprise, there.

A buffoon. Ignorant. Polarizing. Arrogant. Functionally illiterate.

Palin is a bad smell that the GOP wants to distance itself away from.
