Kristol’s Still in Love

The Weekly Standard’s smarmy Bill Kristol, who shoulders much of the shame and blame for vaulting Sarah Palin onto the national stage after he met her during his magazine’s Alaskan cruise and fell head over heels, is encouraging Palin to run for Senate.

Really, this guy is one baby step above Anthony Weiner in letting his weiner make decisions for him.

I can’t imagine she will.  Neither the McCain campaign nor the press properly vetted her during the ’08 campaign, but this time around, closets would open and skeletons would come crashing down.

Insane Meets Unconstitutional

The Alaska House just passed a bill, 31-5, that says Alaskans’ guns and ammunition are not subject to federal gun laws.

Wait, it gets better.  The law also says that federal agents are subject to felony charges if they try to enforce any future federal laws banning semi-automatic weapons or large ammo clips or requiring gun registration.

Sarah Palin is not an anomaly, there are plenty more where she came from.

Hey, Mr. Putin, you wanna buy (back) a state?

A Word for Robins

From “Will Climate Get Some Respect Now?,” Nicholas Kristof, NYT:

“I was schooled in the far-reaching changes underway several years ago by Eskimos in Alaska, who told me of their amazement at seeing changes in their Arctic village — from melting permafrost to robins (for which their Inupiat language has no word), and even a (shivering) porcupine.  If we can’t see that something extraordinary is going on in the world around us, we’re in trouble.”

If You Want to Ruin Your Weekend

Check out Politico‘s top story this morning, “Sarah Palin:  Senate kingmaker.”  From David Catanese’s article:

Riding a four-endorsement winning streak in Republican Senate primaries this year, the former Alaska governor swept into a blueberry patch outside Kansas City this weekend looking to apply her Midas touch to the latest fortunate recipient. This time it’s Sarah Steelman, a former state treasurer running in a fractured Missouri Tuesday primary to decide who gets to take on vulnerable Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill in November.

 “With Steelman, Palin is making perhaps her boldest bet yet. Steelman — who, like Palin, likes to hunt, staunchly opposes abortion rights and touts herself as a maverick — has been running third against businessman John Brunner, who’s poured millions of his personal fortune into the race, and six-term Rep. Todd Akin.

“At least that was the case before Palin’s arrival and the ensuing glut of media exposure for Steelman.

“A win would only enhance Palin’s reputation as the most powerful down-ballot force in Republican politics.

“’She’s a rock star right now in Republican Senate primaries. She’s hit a pretty strong streak,‘ said Scott Bensing, a former executive director of the National Republican Senatorial Committee. ‘She gives the impression that she has deeply held beliefs she’s willing to take on water for and doesn’t really care what her critics think. She comes off resolute and principled.’

“Palin’s victory roster this cycle includes Indiana’s Richard Mourdock, Nebraska’s Deb Fischer, Utah Sen. Orrin Hatch and Texas’ Ted Cruz, who shattered expectations Tuesday with a 14-point win in a runoff against Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst.

No other conservative icon or entity matches her record.”  Emphasis added.

Sarah Palin, bringing the craziest of the crazies to our Senate, earning IOU’s for herself to be collected, oh, I don’t know, maybe in 2016 0r 2020.  Thanks a lot, John McCain, you foolish old goat.


Remember That Shakespeare Line About a Serpent’s Tooth?

Guess who said this:  “I’m not here to talk about President Obama.  I think he is great.”

That was Matt Romney, campaigning (or supposedly campaigning) for his dad in Hawaii.

That’s how he shows his gratitude for not being chosen to represent the campaign at the Alaska caucus.


Images We Could Live Without

Criticizing Chris Christie’s calling Newt an embarrassment to the GOP, Sarah Palin said that Christie “got his panties in a wad.”

She also called it a “rookie mistake” and reminded everyone of how Christie took a state helicopter to his son’s ball game.

I think a “Ya talkin’ to me?” Jersey response might be on its way to Alaska.

Sarah loves her some Newtie.   Is she hoping to become Mrs. Newtie Four?

The Palin-Perry Killing Fields

Rick Perry will not be out-machoed by a mere girl.  Nosireebob!  His response to wolves being shot from helicopters in Sarah Palin’s Alaska?  He’s having pigs shot from helicopters in Texas.  Perhaps we will see a new version of The Three Little Pigs, where the pigs and the wolf band together against the big bad crazy Tea Partiers.  Meanwhile,  those Texas pigs better build their house of bricks.
